Some poll or other believes the American populace is gloomy. Why shouldn't they be. Aside from full employment, which is seldom reported,we are treated to a cacaphony from a whining media. The constant barrage of criticism would wear down pollyanna. The Senate has done nothing with its passage of an immigration bill but increase the gloom. How can any halfway intelligent American applaud new legislation when we can't enforce the laws we already have? What makes those intellectual giants think that merely passing feel good legislation will accomplish anything. As one person in a comment to my opinions said "they don't hold mensa meetings on capitol hill"
