...and I'm the Easter BunnyI made a prediction over eighteen months before the '00 election that G.W. would be our next prez. In the ugly scheme of things, as I saw it, it just made sense. I also predicted that like his predecessor, he would be among the worst presidents in American history. This is terribly bittersweet but I'm afraid Dubya isn't going to disappoint me.
After 9/11 when our hearts were on our sleeves and our nerves were frayed and bared, we were told that we'd get the ones who dared to do this horrendous act to the American people on our own soil. We were told that we were going to go after Al Qaida and Osama bin Laden (or Osama bin Hiding as he has been dubbed by some) and the Taliban who was 'keeping' him . And we did. We were more recently told that we must strike that desert devil Hussein because he was a serious threat to our national security, etc., etc., etc.
Now while we were being damn near shocked and awed with the televised bombing raids in Afghanistan and Iraq, our leaders were busily working back here at home. Dubya and the republicans in Congress were getting the Patriot Act, the Patriot Act II, more recently H.R. 2417 together to save our lowly hides from further invasions and the import of terrorists to our lands. Uh huh, and I'm the Easter bunny!
We were being diverted so that these additional 'moves' (i.e Patriot Act) by our federal tyrannists could be shoved through to enactment before we actually read them or before we could even hear about them in some cases.
You see if stopping terrorists was so important we would have sealed the biggest share of our borders by now. We won't have to worry about the open border now at least from the South. We won't have to worry about the 'coyotes' that carry illegals into our country through Mexico for a hefty fee. G Dubya has the answer for us. He wants to allow the illegals amnesty in effect, allow them over the border so long as they work here in some capacity. Well aint that a helluva 'Get out of jail free' card? Someone please tell me who is going to be able to control the flow of people traffic across the border, keep the 'papers' or 'cards' to gain entry from being counterfeited? Who's going to keep the coyotes from getting working status here to make their daily moves in and out here easier? Who's going to monitor the whole damn problem? And the answer is....
No one because that aint the point! And that aint the purpose!
This whole damn scam since 9/11 and perhaps before in my view is the ongoing stripping of our rights as sovereigns and further empowerment of our 'elected' tyrannists while we are diverted with 'in living color' telebattles. Since 9/11, the further usurpation of your rights and mine, the furthering of corruption of the judicial branch in every reach, totally unwarranted executive orders in Ad Nauseum has gone into overdrive.
Allowing illegals to have routine access to our land is simply prima facie evidence of 'vote getting politics'. And nothing more. Anyone with a nickel's worth of common sense would put the Americans who need and want work in the so-called unwanted jobs. Don't tell me that no Americans would do these jobs! And so what if our market prices are driven up some because of it? Greenspan and company can jack our economy around anytime they feel like it and prices can soar overnight! Isn't it our duty in a free society to take care of our own first? Or do you believe it is the duty of Dubya and all the king's men to cover for Halliburton, Enron - oh - and then perhaps us in the peonage?
