something for the good of the nation. Washington
The conservatives should bite their gums or guns, the liberals should bite their condoms, and both should shut up with their incessant finger-pointing and pathetic polarizing pathos.
Our men's soccer team sucks and it is an international sign of the collapse of the American standard of greatness. We do not need Einstein to tell us the teams from Central and

Congress and the Obama Administration must immediately pass Immigration reform and it must include instant citizenship for all foreigners in the country illegally. Forget about pathways to citizenship and all the other crap.
Maybe we can find enough good soccer players in the eleven million illegal immigrants to mount a men's soccer team and if not, at least we will have a new generation of kids to build a long- range program.
If the oracles in our nation's capitol cannot do this, then we must find a way to annex the rest of
Mexico and declare them all US citizens since we did a pretty good job of
