I recently watched 5 Federal Government Employee/Homeland Security
Agents in a very expensive looking vessel, detain and thoroughly
check all documentation of one local man in a 16 foot Lund Skiff.
At the same time a Coyote is bringing in Foreign Nationals across
an out of control USA/Mexico border. This is what is meant by
September tenth mentality. If we increase the homeland security
budget by two times, it only insures ten agents will detain a
man in an open skiff 2000 miles from the Mexican border is all.
Boy that will keep Osama off Sunset Drive.
I was the only guy that spoke English at my first real (Car Wash)
job in Southern California. I quit because I was the only guy
paying State and Federal taxes on pay day. The next time you
hear the mantra of jobs Americans will not do what they are saying
is: Americans not willing to take home less money than foreigners
who invaded our country. I am not confused about that in the
least. But heck, this type of hypocrisy saved the Yuppies a dollar
getting their Mercedes Benz washed. September 10th mentality
cannot be justified by a Kennedy, Bush or modern day Masta that
loves employees afraid to ask for OT after 40 hours a week. No-comprendo
my backside. I comprendo, due to my real life experiences south
and north of that border, after handing out food and clothing
to the poor in that country off the beaten track, my American
friends and I had automatic weapons pointed at us by Mexican
Federal Soldiers, We do not want your kind in our country the
larger one said. Want to understand that country? Do not go to
Cabo, Cancun or any other service area created for your vacation
experience. Try living in a tent with the folk in a Card Board
shanty village, now that's a cultural experience. Those folks
are great, their government sucks.
If we as a Nation get control of our border, and a legal migrant
program was established, it will be the relatives of the Mexican
Government Body (like the Federallies with automatics) that will
be fast tracked or the ones with payola, never fool yourself
into thinking some dreams will come true for those in a cardboard
village, because the Mexican Government does not give a damn
about its own poor people. I've seen it. Neither side of the
political aisle has the backbone to fix our borders, and political
correctness, plus fear of the Latino vote on this issue is nothing
more than Americide as far as Homeland security goes. Watch for
this Buzz word never to be used by the nightly news.
