Frustration

Does anyone else find some of the quotes in this article incredibly amusing?

But Sen. John Cornyn (news, bio, voting record), R-Texas, said it violated both the letter and spirit of the Constitution. "I can not and will not support a bill whose very purpose is to divide Americans based upon race," he said...

...Assistant Attorney General William Moschella, in a letter Wednesday to Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said the administration "strongly opposes" the bill because it would reverse the country's melting-pot tradition and "divide people by their race."...

...The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, in a report that came out in May, recommended against passage, saying it "would discriminate on the basis of race or national origin and further subdivide the American people into discrete subgroups."

Because the administration has--of course!--always put the melting pot first, and never attempted to divide Americans. In any fashion. At all.

Context for those clicking-disinclined: Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI) put forward a native Hawai'ian self-rule bill, which got shot off the floor. Although I've been in Hawai'i for a total of one month of my life, I have two things I would like to point out to the GOP:

  • The secessionist movement is alive and well in Hawai'i. Not that it'll ever go anywhere, but you may just wish to take a moment to ponder why these people are that irked.

  • You may note that the Hawai'ian flag is based on the Union Jack. That's because the people of Hawai'i--to this very day--generally claim to feel better treated by Britain than by the US government.


Just some food for thought.
