Am I the only one am getting fed up with radical right-wingers, the clones of Pat Buchanan, apparent casualness in throwing around the term “amnesty?” This is how the Yahoo on-line dictionary defines the word:
“am·nes·ty (mn-st) KEY
A general pardon granted by a government, especially for political offenses.”
What am I missing? How are illegal immigrants getting a free ride if they are compelled to pay a $2,000 fine, pay all their back taxes, and comply with other demands? Have some ultraconservatives unwittingly become disciples of Jacques Derrida and Paul DeMan?
