Turns out the only thing harder than immigrants finding a pathway to citizenship is a guy named Bush finding a pathway to the presidency.
And you people are not making it any easier.
Take a look at Jeb Bush's* new book, released just last night, which argues that "those [immigrants] who violated the laws can remain but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship." Harsh!
(Also, "cherished fruits"? Sounds like Michelle Obama just got an ally for her healthy eating campaign. Yay bipartisanship!)
But just a few hours later on Morning Joe, Bush said the following sentence-like jumble of words: "If you can craft that in law where you can have a path to citizenship where there isn't an incentive for people to come illegally."
His reason for waffling? "We wrote this book last year, not this year." Duh. If only Americans would stop flip-flopping on what they want Jeb Bush to believe, he wouldn't have to change his mind so quickly.
*Fun fact: his real name is John Ellis Bush. If he's going to avoid one of his names, though, shouldn't it be the last one?

Not satisfied with being number one in the United States in high school education (correction: number one in high school dropouts), Arizona lawmakers have come up with two hot new proposals to make it harder for students to get their diplomas.
One proposed bill requires students to say the Pledge of Allegiance — current law tells schools to make time for the pledge recitation for "for those students who wish" — unless they're excused "at the request of a parent" who can explain why their son or daughter hates America.

As of this morning, the White House web-petition to deport CNN host Piers Morgan has over 81,000 signatures, well over the 25,000 benchmark required for an official response from the Obama administration. Created by gun-owners in the wake of Morgan's comments in favor of gun control, the petition has riven the souls of liberal minded Americans who want to defend the First Amendment rights but are also cognizant of the fact that this is Piers Morgan we're talking about.
Morgan's fellow Brits have no such dilemma. Over 5,000 petitioners have called on the White House to "Keep Piers Morgan in America" because he's no use to them back home…
We want to keep Piers Morgan in the USA.
There are two very good reasons for this. Firstly, the first amendment.
Second and the more important point. No one in the UK wants him back.
At this point, we need a United Nations High Commissioner on British Entertainment Refugees. It's true that America has long been a refuge for the likes of Morgan, Russell Brand and Simon Cowell, but we can't be forced to bear the burden of all these people, can we?
