John McCain's "Agreed Framework"

Written by J.J. Jackson

Continued from page 1

I would say define "extraordinary circumstances" but we know what it means. It means if you are Constitutional Originalist and most likely pro-life your nomination torepparttar Supreme Court will be considered "extraordinary". It also means that if you are nominated to any ofrepparttar 139853 appellate courts and they think they can dig up enough lies, distortions and half-truths about you, you might as well kiss your nomination good bye. Priscilla Owens, Janice Rogers Brown and William Pryor are only slipping through because Democrats would rather bide their time as they lose ground in this round.

The deal, much like Senator McCain, is so flawed it would be laughable if it were not so serious. The Senate has a role to perform and it should perform it. Senator Frist, thankfully, has not yet signed on to this "deal". And Senator Frist should push ahead for up and down votes on ALL nominees and forcerepparttar 139854 Democrats to show us what "Extraordinary circumstances" means. It is time to go Constitutional on their asses.

Super majority support is not required Constitutionally for judicial confirmations andrepparttar 139855 House and Senate as always retain their rights to always impeach judges that fail to act in good behavior. That has always beenrepparttar 139856 "balance of power"repparttar 139857 founders gave us. It is not whatrepparttar 139858 Democrats want you to believe which is thatrepparttar 139859 "balance of power" somehow involves giving minority Democratsrepparttar 139860 ability to stonewall moderate Republicans and completely shut downrepparttar 139861 conservative Republicans.

It's time to realize that you cannot negotiate in good faith with those that have no "good faith" to start with. You cannot negotiate in good faith with those that are so blinded by their flawed ideology that they will stop at nothing to prevent their loss of power. And it is time to make McCain and his gang of 13 go onrepparttar 139862 record with every nominee just like every liberal Democrat and every moderate and conservative Republican as well. And it is time to excommunicate McCain fromrepparttar 139863 Republican Party and let him go home torepparttar 139864 Democrats.

Pushrepparttar 139865 red button Senator Frist! America is waiting for your decisive leadership and for you to obliterate those that stand inrepparttar 139866 way ofrepparttar 139867 Constitution.

· "Another admitted he didn't do all ofrepparttar duties listed in his résumé – but he assuredrepparttar 139436 hiring manager that it didn't matter." [3]

· Applicant asks for a raise duringrepparttar 139437 interview

· Applicant asks how soon he can haverepparttar 139438 interviewing manager's office

· "Applicants offered their interviewers gifts, money, and even sex in return for a job offer, and one job seeker offered to shinerepparttar 139439 hiring manager's shoes." [4]

Now this is NOT to say that all Americans show up at interviews a "brick shy of a load". I would not dare make such a generalization. So let me go on record so I don't get a lot of nasty emails. Not every American without exception shows up at job interviews with "the porch light on but no one's at home". Just a lot of you apparently do.

Do not, and I repeat, do not do these (are you still listening Lord Jesse and Prince Al?) at job interviews. I guess no one told you these were not good things to do when applying for work:

· Pick your nails · Light up tobacco or other smoking products · Fart · Belch · Pick your nose or any other bodily orifice · Scratch your private parts · Spit

I am not making this stuff up. Americans really will do this, and more, at job interviews.

This behavior is what Mexicans would call "uneducated". And you know what? THEY ARE RIGHT!

So Lord Jackson and Prince Albert, perhaps you should take a long and hard look atrepparttar 139440 reasons American employers are hiring more and more Mexicans! What do you think of that?
