Posts Tagged ‘Illegal Immigration’

This post began as a response in the comment section that soon took the form of a rant and hopefully now has been transformed into another, different rant. One that makes more sense and is less ummm, rant-like. I don’t know. You be the judge.

RightKlik, I know you had no intention of stirring me up with this comment on the latest post of the TBF poll but you’ve spurred my residual indignation over the passage of ObamaCare and given me an opportunity to compare it to it’s prostitute mother, *gasp* Social Security.

Here is RK’s comment:

For me, the candidates’ views on ObamaCare has served as a convenient way to identify the sharpest, most conservative candidates. Candidates who have a well thought-out strong statement on ObamaCare invariably seem to be great, well-rounded candidates.

RK, ObamaCare is a hot-button issue with me also. Like you, I try to judge candidates by their views on, and knowledge of the constitution. It’s going to take a well defined legal strategy to not only repeal Obamacare, but to also plan the chess game of how to win the greater war of reversing the trend to this selfish entitlement mentality Americans are growing more entranced by. (What is it with shiny objects?) ObamaCare is a direct product of such a mindset and we must not only defeat it in the congress, we’ve also got to turn public opinion and thinking away from the dependency attitude. People should feel like they are trusted with making their own destiny, not feel like they can’t do anything without a government handout.

True empowerment and a sense of personal pride come from self reliance, not waiting on government to guarantee a safety net or grant you permission.

Conservatives by definition resist change. They are reluctant to embrace political change because mostly in the last hundred years, progressives have infected political and economic thought on both sides of the aisle. Most times a piece of new legislation is proposed, whether it starts out with good intentions or not, it gets a ton of amendments and stipulations attached to it so that the original helpful piece of law is completely transformed into sometimes the exact opposite of the bill than they started with. Most times, in situations like we are in now, a Democrat majority, and even when the Republicans have the majority, there are too many RINO’s to stop the creep of socialism. The best true Conservatives can hope for has been to dig in their heels and slow the progress toward the cliff of socialism.

As a recent example, House Republican Leader John Boehner has been catching some flak lately over comments he made concerning the mother of all entitlements, Social Security, flak that upon closer review, doesn’t hold up to scrutiny.

Why, you ask?

Because given government’s penchant for redistributing your hard earned money, Boehner is right!

Boehner is right when he says the only option for Social Security to remain solvent, is to raise the retirement age to seventy, that is, if you want to save it without raising taxes even more. Given the Obama regime’s attack on working class Americans as demonstrated by their blatant hostility toward free enterprise and capitalism in general,  their lack of enforcement of immigration law, and outright denial of the federal laws’ existence in attacking Arizona’s attempt to seal it’s border, the only way to balance the books at the SS office is to raise taxes, decrease benefits or grant amnesty to 20 million illegal immigrants. Try to decrease benefits to the losers who haven’t put into the system and you’re labeled a racist, baby hating, xenophobe, so the only option the Obama regime offers is amnesty or higher taxes. Boehner correctly points this out when he recognizes the absurdity of increasing the retirement age of Americans who have paid into this failed Progressive Democrat plan that has had 85 years to get it right.

What makes anyone think they can do better with total control of health care?

How they keep selling this garbage to a government educated, academically challenged electorate is simple class envy and racism. Obama’s White House plays the class envy card so much that I’m forced to think it is the only ones in his hand or up his sleeve. Yet most in the media sadly and predictably, give him a free pass. Obama and the Democrats alike need to legalize the illegals en-masse because they see it as 1) an immediate 20m Democrats, and 2) using the new revenue stream as a way to prop up SS and the associated entitlements like medicare, welfare, etc. Never mind the fact the programs as they stand are flawed, broke and in dire need of reforming and reshaping for eventual transfer to the private sector.

Boehner is right because it is important to focus on why Social Security is insolvent. Social Security was and is the perfect ponsi scheme foisted upon the unsuspecting American people. A Three Card Monty with the “security card” taken off the table soon after the first shuffle. I see now that it was replaced with the “race card.”

Social Security is the prime example of the drawbacks of a true Democracy and the pandering it promotes. It resulted in a government run slush fund used to steal from every productive worker to give to the chosen. SS was proposed and passed by a progressive leaning congress, freshly educated/indoctrinated in Keynesian make-believe monetary schemes, deciding after passage, but knowing pre… that it, and the entitlement thinking it would spawn would become the greatest threat to liberty known to man. A Totalitarian Democracy enforced by aristocrats hell bent on protecting you from yourself at everyone else perceived expense.

Cornucopia Utopia.

Cornutopia!

All one has to do is look across the pond to the European failure in their Socialist experiment gone wild. Greece and the EU stand as a tarnished, rusty example of the degradation of socialist/communist political practice, lack of ethical behavior, outright corruption and the exposing of the absolute greed and selfishness that a true democracy fosters.

This is what inhabits not only the buildings of our capitol, but what infects the minds of the people who would enslave you by pushing the Democratic/ Progressive Socialist agenda. Obamacare, Cap and Trade, The Global Warming lie,  TARP, Stimulus, and government takeovers of private industry are all examples of why the solution to problems caused by a large, centralized federal government is not more government.

We’ve got a long road ahead folks. Let’s dig in by electing leaders with a belief in the Constitutional Republic we were meant to inherit.

Democracies fail. Always have, always will. They eat themselves from the inside out.

A maggot has no thought of what it  eats. It only knows the innate hunger. The lust for power is no different.

UPDATE: My friend Bob Belvedere has posted commentary to a post by Si Vis Pacem, and surprisingly, or not, they have been discussing some of the same points I brought up here. That being, we deplore the term Democracy as applied to the USA. I highly recommend both reads.

And remember, The U.S.A. is a Constitutional Republic. Thank you.

Today, in the robot’s mail box I found the latest installment of

The Peter Morrison Report

Summary of this week’s report:

Conservative stalwart Leo Berman has officially declared that he’s
seeking the office of Speaker of the House, currently held by Joe
Straus. Straus is a RINO who supports abortion and gambling,
campaigns for liberal Democrats, and uses his power to block
important conservative legislation. Replacing Straus with Rep.
Berman would be a huge victory for conservative Texans, and we need
to support Leo Berman in his bid for the Speaker’s job.

Take action:

Please fax the Republican members of the Texas House and urge them
to vote for Leo Berman for Speaker of the House.

Also, please call, write or fax the member of the Texas House from
your district and urge them to vote for Leo Berman for Speaker of
the House. If you need to look up their contact information, you
can do so here:

Unlike Congressmen, it’s possible to actually get your state
representative on the phone. This is by far the most important
step to take, as your rep will be naturally cautious to oppose the
incumbent speaker because of his power to determine the fate of
committee assignments and legislation. Only constituent pressure
will help them muster the courage to act.

Wow. It seems like everybody who’s anybody is talking about this. No Sheeples Here has a post on it and I heard about it from Obi’s Sister.

It’s being reported that 17 Afghan soldiers here for training are loose in the US, and have been for about 2 years or less and we are just now hearing of it. The reports are somewhat vague as to the duration of individual cases although I might infer that they have been filtering out into the population in small numbers.

Some are questioning why the reports are only being released now. Fox News quotes an unnamed senior law enforcement official:

“Although we are vigilant and need to work toward not allowing this to happen,” the official said, this alert should “not necessarily” be described as “a national security threat, more of a ‘hey these guys violated our laws and we need to find them.'”

OK sport, maybe you could look for about 12 million or so illegal immigrants while you’re at it. Both cases are quite similar with the exception that we transported these possible terrorists here at taxpayer expense. I hear we have some neat new detention facilities in which to house these guys, should they ever be caught. They could learn basket weaving with the rest of  ’em.

I can tell you the first place I would look for these guys, it’s a place that they would fit right in, never to be noticed.

The Obama Administration.

Glenn Beck sent out an email on it earlier today and Fox also has some info, including the names and Memeorandum has more info along with Scared Monkeys, The Jawa Report, Weasel Zippers, Confederate Yankee, Atlas Shrugs, Liberty Pundits Blog, Patterico’s Pontifications and And So it Goes in Shreveport

Another question, why don’t they post the photos? Are they afraid someone might recognize one of them? Am I supposed to go up to random Afghan looking dude and ask “Hey, aren’t you… *picks out random name from list* Mohammad Nasim Fateh Zada, born 12/4/1966?” I can’t even pronounce it. Besides, that would be racial profiling, wouldn’t it?

As Obi’s Sister says, “What could go wrong?”

WTF! Every day this country looks more and more like a clip from a Saturday Night Live skit. What kind of bizzaro world is it where a criminal gets better treatment in a detention center than in the country from whence they came?

It seems ICE is in negotiations with it’s confinement contractor to “improve” their detention facilities:

Overall, the facilities are expected to be less prison-like, offering freer movement for detainees, fewer pat downs and better access to legal resources. The agreement calls for fresh vegetables and access to self-serve beverages along with cooking and exercise classes, according to a list released by ICE.

CCA will soften “the look for the facility with hanging plants, flower baskets, new paint colors, different bedding and furniture” and allow lengthy visits from friends and family who can provide outside packages or food for special celebrations under changes to be made over the next six months.

Hey, GREAT NEWS! Now we can bring Uncle Carlos that birthday cake he’s been asking for, except now we won’t have to put a file in it. We’ll just hand it to him along with the knife, gun and keys to the stolen car we left down the road!

Then the family arrives at the facility to find that it’s improved so much, they want to move in! “Arrest me! Arrest me!”

I tell you what, my house could stand some new drapes and a coat of paint too. You think I might could “detain” some of those aliens for you? On second thought, I retract.

Wait, it gets better:

ICE Director John Morton announced last year that the agency would make detention facilities less prison-like because immigrant detainees are being held on civil immigration charges, not criminal offenses…

Yes, you read that correctly. More language calisthenics from the apologists in ICE. Being illegal is not considered criminal. Question: Hey, Mr. Morton Moron, what part of illegal don’t you understand?”

Representatives of the detention officers union sound to me like the only ones with their collective heads out of their arses.

“It’s absolutely insane, the changes they’re making,” said Chris Crane, president of AFGE Council 118/ICE, the union that represents 7,000 ICE officers but not the contractors. “It just makes for an absolutely unsafe environment, not only for the detainees, but for the officers.”

He contends that many detainees could be drug dealers or gang members – even if they haven’t been convicted.

How about instead of spending money painting and otherwise sprucing up the prison and teaching them the fine art of basket weaving, we deport the river swimming, fence jumping, desert crossing law breaking criminals. What do these brain surgeons in ICE think this is going to do to deter future illegals from coming here in the first place?!

I’ll tell you what.

Nothing.

All it is, is more chaos and subjugation heaped upon the backs of the American people.

Had enough yet?

UPDATE: Does Michelle Malkin read the Robot?

Wow. Apparently, there is at least one conservative in California. Who new?

Bravo Congressman. Bravo. Thank you for saying what our President should have.
