"Gov.Spitzer's plan to give driver's licenses to illegal aliens is a threat to public safety and security, and is another indication that he is increasingly seen as unfit to govern this state." Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno
No, no, no is what New Yorkers are telling Gov. Spitzer but he doesn't seem to have the sense to back down. "Republican Senate committee hearings make clear that the Senate would prefer I abdicate my foremost responsibility to protect the safety and security of New Yorkers rather than implement a smart DMV policy change that advances both." said Spitzer.
There's two distinct views on this issue. Those that approve say illegals will be on record, register and insure their vehicles therefore the roads will be safer. The critics, 72% of them, say phooey. Illegals will not flood to buy cars and get insurance...they can't afford it. More importantly, a NY drivers license is a credible piece of ID used to access airports, banks, credit cards..anything that requires ID accepts a NYS drivers license, backed by SS#, residence, description and picture...it's as good as gold. But NOW, illegal aliens will get one with a passport that can't be easily verified. Soooo, the DMV will be making it easier for terrorists to game our security for nefarious pursuits.
In fairness to the DMV, many of the clerks refused to follow the Governor's plan; Spitzer said he'd sue them. New York Legislators threatened to sue HIM...the majority of people and politicians are strongly opposed...if Spitzer thinks this is getting him points with the landslide of voters that elected him...he's wrong. I wouldn't give ya two cents for his chance to be re-elected...unless, illegal aliens use their brand new drivers licenses to register to vote? Ah ha!! Could that be what this is all about?

Six months ago Don Imus was fired by CBS Radio for remarks he & the boys made about the Rutger's Girls B-Ball team i.e.,----->>> "nappy headed hos." After collecting 22 million from CBS for breach of contract, WABC Radio picked him up for a cool 5-7 Mil and will air his new show on WABC Radio and a TV station(to be announced) simultaneously, as he did with WFAN & MSNBC.
His critics are predicting that no one will watch; WRONG. Besides the fact that the suspense is mounting already, Imus has a dedicated following; early risers who've enjoyed starting their commute with a little locker room humor and a few irreverent but revealing political interviews for decades. Afterall, he's back just in the nic-of-time to lampoon the motley string of Primary candidates and give a wake-up call to millions of working class heroes...Now hear this!! "Anybody but Hillary."
Hooray!! Hillary's joy ride is over...Imus & crew revel in mocking the Clintons. He really ticks her off. Hillary called him "Satan" and referred to his schtick as "small minded bigotry." The Homorless Lady used her influence in NYC to stoke the firestorm against him by pressuring the advertisers to pull the plug and urge CBS and MSNBC to fire him.
Imus supported McCain in 2000. I'm hoping that a flamboyant Imus in the Morning will feature McCain and significantly affect the outcome of early Primary races followed by a Hillary vs. McCain bout for President.
