American Public, Schmerican Public, In The Senate We Do What We Want!

7 06 2007

 

In an age where emotions run high, and the idea of the rule of law is trampled in to the ground our country is beggining to lose our identity. Congress refuses to secure our borders unless we can offer amnesty, President Bush refuses to secure our borders so as not to anger Mexico, or business interests, and it is the American taxpayer who pays the bill. This issue is more important than feeling bad for those who come here illegally or even finding workers to fill jobs that Americans “won’t fill.” This is about how our core values and our most basic liberties are at stake. Now I am no racist, and as a descendent of an illegal immigrant I can understand their desire to come to the United States and make a better life for themselves. The problem is that many of these illegal aliens who come here also take government handouts and clog our hospitals and school systems. In Southern California many emergency rooms have had to close their doors because illegal immigrants will take their families their for medical treatment knowing that they cannot be refused even if they cannot pay. Of all things I can’t believe why any Republican in Congress would even support the current immigration reform bill! Do they not realize that they are contributing to the death of their own party? Hispanics are overwhelmingly Democratic, especially Democrats love to fund social programs and if they came out in force states that are currently very “Red” like Texas and Arizona would soon become very “Blue.” I do not say this without reason, my father is a construction worker in California and the many illegal immigrants that he works with always complain about how rich white people are, and how racist America is, and how the government needs to do more for them so they have a better chance. That is enraging! How dare they feel ENTITLED to special treatment and how dare they think that people in America don’t do an honest days work! My father and Americans like him put in countless hours of labor and work themselves to exhaustion so his family can have a better life, and my father has never expected nor wanted a dime from the government as he sees that as being weak and also it isn’t the government’s job to do that. I don’t want to see my country fail and fall because a massive new influx of “voters” have dramatically altered the political landscape of the United States. Why can’t politicians in Washington do what nearly 80% of Americans want them to do first? Securing the border is the number one security concern for this country. After we secure the border and start up a guest worker program than we can figure out how to deal with the problem of the approximately 12 million illegal immigrants in this country. I am so frustrated I can’t even put my thoughts in to a professional coherent format for this blog, so I must apologize if my thoughts are scattered and unorganized. Anyway, thanks you for your continued support of the Southpaw, leave us your thoughts, and as always tell your friends about us!

Its Always Someone Else’s Fault

3 06 2007

 

With the idea of political responsibility being thrown around its nice to see the traditional idea of scapegoating being used again in politics. The leaders of the Democratic Congress issued a press release that publicizes the accomplishments they have had since they took control of Congress five months ago….and that press release is a meager two pages. With the polls showing that the approval ratings for Congress are even lower than that of President Bush’s, Democrats are starting to feel the noose tightening around them. One of the biggest problems they are having is that they have done next to nothing of what they promised to do, and as a time has shown, they continually blame others for their incompetence.  They pledged to end the Iraq War, that is a work in progress I guess. The only thing that they have managed to do was raise the minimum wage, by attaching it to the war spending bill, because I guess it would be more prudent to impede our country’s current economic growth rather than help it out. My frustration with both parties is high, but the Democrats have peaked my frustration. Their leaders spew anti-American rhetoric, such as Sen. Reid’s “The war is lost” statement, and they constantly overstep their powers, such as Rep. Pelosi’s trips to other countries. As if she had ANY power to enact foreign policy. She makes me angrier than all of them, she has even threatened to change House rules in order to quiet down the opposition Republicans. Sounds like a spoiled brat on a power trip who doesn’t like disagreement. They have trumpeted their investigations in the completely legal firing of 8 US Attorneys and just show how they have done nothing. When asked about government spending on embryonic stem cell research, the committee is still out. (As if the government should be funding projects like that.) But they remain confident that no matter what happens the American people will still see them as the responsible and right leaders for America that they claim to be. Well if the polls that they put so much faith in are any indication of a report card I would say to them, “Fat Chance!” Thank you for reading the Southpaw, leave us your thoughts, and as always tell your friends about us!

Democratic Fiscal Responsibility

16 04 2007


Once again we see an example of the wonderful responsibility that is exercised by our Democratic friends in Congress. As Spring Break started many members of Congress, the vast majority of which were Democratic, embarked on a number of official visits by delegations from Congress. This sounds like it could be pretty legit and even beneficial considering they were examining how different areas would effect national security with travel, the catch is that they are going to the most popular Caribbean vacation sites with American taxpayers picking up the tab. There is a saying that I love that refers to the two parties in Washington. “Businessmen will take your money up front and you know they do, but politicians take it from you under the guise of taxes. I trust Republicans because they steal out in the open, but Democrats steal from you and try to make it legitimate.” Does it make it right for Republicans to do so? Of course not, and I am just as outraged by the influence of PACs in Washington as any other decent American. But the Democrats visiting popular tourist sites across Europe and the Caribbean on taxpayer’s wallets is completely unacceptable. Speaker Pelosi tried to say that she is being non-partisan in that she tried to include Republicans in this as well, but for some reason the vast majority, I only know of three that accepted, did not care to join them. Well Mr. Pelosi I think that maybe one reason they felt that they shouldn’t go was I don’t know the $1,100.00 a night 5-Star Hotel stays that Congressmen had to have because of the importance of these delegations. Congressional spokesmen are quoted as saying, “they went from 7 AM to 10 PM, there was no down time,” well than I feel bad for all the wives and husbands who were brought along, they obviously had to entertain themselves while these Congressmen worked so diligently to better America. Read the article and make up your own minds but as for me I personally hate using the government for personal betterment as it is a position of service to your fellow citizens and that is not to be taken lightly. Oh and by the way these “public officials” cost the military about $10,000.00 and HOUR just to fly them all over the place from destination to destination. Thanks for our balanced budget Speaker Pelosi.
