Bloviating Zeppelin: H.C.R. 40

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.

H.C.R. 40

There may be an actual smidge of sanity left in politics:

A House resolution urging President Bush "not to go forward with the North American Union or the NAFTA Superhighway system" is – according to its sponsor Rep. Virgil Goode, R-Va., in an exclusive WND interview – "also a message to both the executive branch and the legislative branch."

As WND previously reported, on Jan. 22 Goode introduced H.C.R. 40, titled "Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada."

Representative Goode was quoted by WND as saying: "You won't hear the leadership in the Republic Party admit it, but there are many in the House and Senate who know that illegal immigration has to be stopped and legal immigration has to be reduced. We are giving away the country so a few very rich people can get richer."

President Bush has tagged those who might suggest the SPP could turn into a veritable North American Union as conspiracy theorists: "You lay out a conspiracy and then force some people to try to prove it doesn't exist. That's just the way some people operate," Mr. Bush said. Representative Goode also told WND:

President Bush's position is that we need to carry out NAFTA and we need to have this free flow of goods with Mexico and Canada," Goode explained. "Well, Bush's approach involves a derogation of our sovereignty and it also undermines the security and the safety of the country.

"It will be much easier for a truck to get a container on the west coast of Mexico and haul in a biological or radiological or nuclear weapon than it would be if you are going to have to unload the trucks on the Texas-Mexico border and put the goods and material in a U.S. truck," he continued.

"The problem is that the NAU, NAFTA Superhighways and SPP all go back to money," Goode stressed. "The multinational companies want their goods from Mexico and China because they want the cheap labor."

And of course, dear readers, please forget not that China currently enjoys "permanent normal trade relations" with the US, and was placed on "most favored nation" trade status at one point. Yes, the same China whose products and food we are finding to be less than adequately built and prepared.

How much longer shall we continue to sell our very souls for cash and votes? Yes, I mean you, Republicans. Yes, I mean you, Demorats.

And Mexico *promised* as part of NAFTA to NOT shift its unemployment problem northwards.

Yes, that is in the accords for NAFTA. That thing signed by President Clinton and agreed to by the Senate. Mexico has *broken* its side of the NAFTA accords. The R and D parties? *squish*

Maybe we can get that lovely, Marxist/Leftist EPR group to start sabotaging the US! Chavez already *pays* for them to carry out his threats... be pretty damned easy for them to get across the border and plant a few bombs and scurry back... we might get a few! And learn of their associations with al Qaeda, Shining Path, FARC...

Wouldn't that be loverly?

Which isn't to say that they might already be here... just like Hezbollah, Hamas and al Qaeda are... along with FARC connected drug gangs in Mexico. You know, the folks buying SAM systems, boodles of guns, and were looking to get a small diesel electric sub? Remember them? Tried to assassinate President Clinton while he was in office? Friends of EPR and Chavez?

Holding Mexico to its agreements and suspending NAFTA would require one of these things known as: Presidential withdrawal from the Treaty. That requires two things - a piece of paper saying we are not under the Treaty any more and a Presidential signature. For that latter you need this thing known as: a President that will hold foreign nations to account for their activities under Treaties.

Have we seen one of those around recently?

You might want to consider that a question to put to candidates while looking for 'job qualification credentials'. Because, so far, none of them have that qualification on 'National Security' via their 'Foreign Policy' outlooks. You know? Things Presidents get to do as part of their job? Because this IS a power of the President.

Gots scads of candidates.

They are all clueless in this realm.

AJ: Yeah. Right. And I would completely concur: clueless in that regard, particularly on the GOP side. You saw how well the GOP handled power when it actually HAD it.

"How much longer shall we continue to sell our very souls for cash and votes?" Probably as long as there are politicians, BZ. :(

At the expense of our nation, Gayle, at the complete expense of our national sovereignty and security.

And Fred, I think you know that I do not blindly follow one party, one President; if a person or a group refuse to see or acknowledge that there are problems, then it becomes impossible to solve those problems. I am not in lockstep with the GOP or President Bush, as I have written on a number of occasions. And we are currently paying the price for some very silly decisions having been made over the years.

This issue drives me nuts thinking about it. There's just to much substance to it to be a "conspiracy theory."

Hell, and I'd have to go back and find the link, but NC has recently issued what is being called the first NAU drivers licence. I believe WND did a piece on it as well.

You don't need a conspiracy if all those in power act like self-centered idiots set on their own aggrandizement and accolades and not giving a damn for the country. That latter looks *just the same* as a conspiracy, and requires zero conspiracy to have happen.

We are, apparently, going to be condemned to living through something that we saw before... because it is just so *easy* to give up our rights and liberties. Until you end up in a land with lots of legislation, but no law...wisdom without plan... constitution with no name...

Those are not my words but they describe perfectly what we have today. This time we may not be so lucky...
