"The Cafferty File": 'American dream' lost?
.What does it mean if 80 cities and towns have passed resolutions calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney?
Nothing. It will never happen anyway and it is a total waste of time to keep discussing it.-Michael, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Jack, it means that the people's voices are getting louder and louder. It should have been done months ago. -Louis
Hi Jack. The only question about 80 cities calling for the impeachment of Bush/Cheney is: Why isn't every city in America doing the same thing? They have convinced some Americans that to question them is un-American… it is time to start throwing tea in the bay. -Michael, Van Nuys, California
What it means is that 79 cities saw other cities getting cheap publicity for an overwrought political stunt and jumped on the bandwagon. It's terribly convenient for them because it gets their region political attention and benefits from the protection of a) the fact that it will never amount to anything real and b) the fact that there's enough bad blood for the Bush administration in this country that they won't get much if any political backlash for their ridiculous posturing. -Tom, Warwick, New York
It means that democracy is finally starting to work. The people are speaking out, and it is now the responsibility of the people's elected representatives to take action. That's why the people voted them in. -Scott, Sacramento, California
It means 80 city and town councils have nothing better to do, and are not taking care of more important and pertinent business such as education or road maintenance. -Rabb
It means that their town is a heck of lot smarter than my town. -T., Jonesboro, GeorgiaNew Haven, Connecticut will offer ID cards to illegal immigrants giving them access to things like libraries and bank accounts. Is that a good idea?
Jack, Sure. It's a great idea. What the heck, let's give them driver's licenses, too? Then they can really drive the wages in my trade into the dirt! -Rick, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania
Yes, it's an excellent idea... if the people applying for the cards are arrested and returned to their countries of origin. -William
Equal protection and access for illegals and legal citizens. Now, if only New Haven would do the same for ex-felons who have done their time and are having trouble finding housing and jobs. Did Webster drop the meaning of "illegal" from its pages, or did people just stop THINKING about what it means? This is madness, but I am glad it is in New Haven. Is Yale going to provide a college education, too? -Cynthia, Garland, Texas
