Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Message To The American People From Its Politicians:

Perhaps it really is the time to roll over and let anyone who is an illegal immigrant do what they wish when they wish.

Though it is clear that a good 70% to 80% of the American public, including those persons who waded their way through the unfriendly INS system of legal immigration (a kludgy, convoluted, lengthy and costly process which, on its face, helps to cause people to move into the illegal realm) do not want an amnesty and want our borders enforced, it is apparent that both of our current political parties are not particularly interested in what the electorate wants.

From the Christian Science Monitor:

LOS ANGELES – In Los Angeles, Eun Sook Lee will march on behalf of Korean illegal immigrants, at least 50,000, living in southern California. On Boston Common, Punam Rogers will join other Indian émigrés, as well as business clients and students from China, Germany, and Britain. In Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Ivalier Duvra will take to the streets to draw attention to Haitian newcomers who he says need refugee status.

Coming on the heels of demonstrations in several larger cities, a National Day of Action on Immigrant Rights Monday is expected to involve people in some 90 US municipalities, well above organizers' goal of 10. Described as the biggest social movement of Hispanics since the United Farm Workers of Cesar Chavez, the plans for protests, vigils, and marches include a less-visible tier of people stirred to action over American immigration policy: non-Latinos.

The national day of action seems to have expanded exponentially with the organizing power of the Internet. Besides demonstrations, speeches, processions, and assorted performances (from drumming to skits), groups are planning work-walkouts, product boycotts, fasting, and other measures.

Anger has been building among immigrants for decades, Ms. Hong says, but it has intensified over the past decade, as immigrants felt targeted by welfare reform, what they see as a civil-rights rollback, and, most recently, anti- terror laws. Post-9/11 crackdowns, legislation denying social services to illegals in California, and Minutemen border operations have roused immigrants, legal and not. "Immigrants have been feeling like targets for all that is wrong and want to stand up and show how they contribute to the diversity and richness of America," she says.

So anger has been building? And what would happen had the countries been reversed? What would happen had "anger" been building in:
  • Russia
  • Korea
  • Mexico
  • China
  • Ethiopia
  • El Salvador
  • Guatemala
If we do not have the so-called cojones to defend our own sovereign nation, our borders, our language, our culture -- well then, perhaps it really is time to let the barbarians past the gates and allow anyone, anywhere, for any reason, to do what they will when they will.

I once thought we were a nation of laws. I am no longer so convinced. Why should you or me, I posit, obey any laws extant in this country?

"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

-- George Orwell (1903–1950), British author. Animal Farm, ch. 10 (1945).

Cheap labor at all costs? We have seen in France what happens.

Jason: Yes, sir, we have seen what happens in that country. It is not what I would call a primal logsheet for this country.

Thank you for commenting, welcome aboard, and may you please return numerous times.

You are on the Right Track sir.

Most of us are too busy working, paying taxes, raising families and the like to take time out to march. Maybe that is precisely what we need to do though. Put together a few million Americans and march on the capitol. It seems marchers get all the press and all the attention from Congress.

Michael Jackson had a song went, 'all I want to say is that they don't really are about us.' Boy that is so true with politicians. I'm not happy with either party - though I could never stomach the thought of voting for a Republican.

What we meed to do is form a march to the voting booth and vote out every single person seeking re-election. That will get a message across. Otherwise, we can look forward to the same mess on Buzz Lightyear proportions. "To infinity and beyond"

I am troubled with this because my parents are immigrants and they came over doing it the right way. But, this decision made has really been disconcerting. Taking a course called Race, Culture & the Church back in 1998; we looked at a poll that said the Hispanic community would be the majority in the US in 2052. Two (2) years ago, I predicted 2030. After last week, I move it now to 2017. wel'' see...... Senors & Senoritas

So many rights and we do forget that a few of them we give to the Government to *govern*. And that governing is very simple: "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Establish Justice: Well, what about the rule of Law? A good place to start, one would think. Save the 'economic justice' for the poor in this country who are Citizens. If you are from somewhere else, then there are legal means to get here.

Insure Domestic Tranquility: Oh, love those marches by illegal aliens! SUCH domestic tranquility in having foreigners protesting in this country.

Provide for the common defense: The number one illegal entry method is *feet*. Defend against foot, ground vehicle and tunneling traffic. A wall system that defends the border *forcefully* is the answer. Cost, about that of a nuclear aircraft carrier, sans fuel, stores, crew and aircraft.

Promote the General Welfare: Of CITIZENS. Citizenship gives you the right to such and all within the Constitution. Include in this all here legally who have gone through the proper channels. Illegal entry does not get you this benefit, nor any other.

Secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity: Yes, the Union must be secured, its laws upheld and the division of powers respected. That is the gift we get by being here as a Citizen or legally otherwise. The integrity of the Nation State *must* be preserved for liberty to be secured within Our borders.

This Constitution sets out those few things that Government is granted to Govern, not Rule. Amazingly the elected officials of ALL branches of the Government are not asserting their rights that We The People have given them to use on Our behalf. Both parties are at fault. No elected member of the Government nor Appointed Supreme Court Judge has pointed out that the Constitution is being shredded through 'economic compassion' that lets some use low cost labor with threats over it while others do not.

And if Congress passes, the President signs and the Supreme Court upholds legalizing such illegal entry, they will ALL be abdicating their rights and setting a precedent of lawlessness and meaninglessness of the laws that Govern We The People. Because none of the Precepts in the Preamble will have been UPHELD.

That is pure and simple abdication of duty for personal or party gain on a mass scale and is despicable.

Time for spare government... not small government, but cut to the bare minimum. Perhaps time to lobby a new domestic policy across the board. Find the Federal RESET button, wherever that thing is hidden... oh... it is hidden in your votes and your voice as a Free People.

"A Republic, madam, if you can keep it." - Ben Franklin to a woman asking what form the new government would be.

Keep faith with Ben - he deserves it or we will never have deserved *him*.

We have a real problem in the USA and I have no idea what to do about it.

One of the problems is the mindset that say's,"I'm not happy with either party- though I could never stomach the thought of voting for a (fill in the blank).

We should look closely at the man/woman running for office and vote for the best choice and forget the Party affiliation. If we can't do that then we will continue to have the same problems continuosly.

I use to just vote against the incumbent and I'm beginning to think that is not such a bad idea. It would at least let them know, we are against the "business as usual and status quo" mentality the prevails in Congress.

For all the purist out there, change "the" to "that" in my comment.
