A Sell Out?

Illegal immigration is changing the culture and living standards in the USA and will be a major issue in future elections. It seems that President Bush and the White House strategists, as well as many of our other legislators, are underestimating the concerns and fears of the American people in this regard. Not only conservatives but many democrats are now increasingly vocal against allowing this flood to continue or any widespread amnesty to be legislated.

The statistics speak for themselves, the border states are facing massive onslaughts of illegal people and seeing their economies plunging into ruin. Consequently, they are declaring “states of emergencies.” Gang activities are on the rise in our cities, pressures on the medical community are out of control and school systems are collapsing. Mexico is increasing it’s demands for compensation and lobbying for relaxed borders which are already porous.

Competition, greed and disregard for basic human rights is driving businesses to hire more illegal workers. These workers have no rights or protections and the businesses get cheap labor. We taxpayers are paying the piper! Unemployment among African American youth exceeds 14% in our state. Regardless of race, illegal workers are taking jobs from American kids and benefits from all of us.

The Democrats are now, and will continue to, exploit this issue and unless the White House rethinks it's approach this may well be the issue that unseats the Republicans. I doubt it will be Iraq. It is a shame that the party which stands for American ideals is the one that seems to be selling us down the river!

Another look at that "mourning mother!"

Cindy’s son Casey, old enough to make decisions for himself, volunteered for the job like others in our military. They do it for patriotism, understanding the importance of defending freedom as well as love for the American way of life. They do it in response to the cowardly attack on our values which killed thousands and impacted all of us. They also volunteer because they believe it’s a good deal to join the military, get training, education and reasonable pay. All who volunteer understand that the purpose of the military is to defend our way of life and our country and that they may have to risk life and limb in the process.

We have committed our troops to fight terror and they deserve our full backing and the minority who disagree should shut up! Who elected you! The media now amplify Cindy Sheehan’s insane cry to “pull out,” telling our soldiers that their sacrifices have all been in vain. This is a cowardly attack on our sons, daughters, fathers, mothers and friends who are fighting for us and especially those who have lost loved ones in this honorable venture. The rest of the world laughs at us and the terrorists gain false courage seeing America in disarray – again! Sheehan, and the main stream media’s only agenda is to attack President Bush and America by exploiting a mothers so-called grief. The Herald Sun does a disservice by showing pictures of the pathetic demonstrators reliving their youth as Vietnam protestors. They were wrong then, they’re wrong now. Cindy may believe her son died for nothing – we Americans do not!
