We've been told over and over again about the brilliance of our president. I guess it's all perspective, cause where I'm sitting, he has to be surrounded by a bunch of dimly lit bulbs. I'm going to overlook the insensitivity of inviting the rapper "Common," known for his adoration of a cop killer, to the White House during police week, let's get right to the speech about immigration.
In El Paso, Texas, the president stood before the nation and lied. Then to justify the lie he mocked the call for a secure border. As he complained about those who seek the security of a closed border, noting their lack of satisfaction for the progress his administration has made, he projected to the nation he doe not understand the task at hand. It's not about the methods you use, it's about results. You might suggest alligators and a moat, you might line the border with man eating tigers, it's your task to protect and secure our borders, and that has not been accomplished. While you might be satisfied with your performance, the nation isn't.
We are then handed the proposal from this massive intellect, that we should stop the demand for illegal drugs, thereby stopping the flow of those who breech our borders. Nice try, let's apply a little logic to that. Say you have a boat, it has a leak, a flow of unwanted water breeching the hull. Do you repair the hull, or seek to change the will of the water to enter the hull? Now a dash more logic. Illegal drugs are sold to our citizens because we have the wealth to afford them. Suppose they do accomplish cutting off the desire to use illegal drugs in our nation, where is the next closest nation with the affluence to afford their products? Is it to Mexico's south? Hardly, it's Canada! Are the drug traffickers going to pole vault the United states to get there, or go through it?
Now again we are fed the absurd statement we need workers from Mexico to do the jobs American's won't. Again I'll apply some logic to this....Our unemployment rate is somewhere around 9%, we don't need an outside work force. We need to quit subsidizing people to sit at home and be idle. It's amazing how the will to do those "unwanted jobs" will vanish when the desire for running water and having a roof over your head takes priority. They'll be working at Mac Donald's, picking produce, cleaning gutters, and cutting lawns like there was no tomorrow. I don't buy this scam, and never have. Take away the incentive not to work, and replace it with the need to work. We will become a productive and employed nation, generating dollars that stay here in our economy, not being sent to Mexico to migrant's families. Granted, I'll never win the Latino vote, but then my focus is on the nation, not a voting demographic.
Since President Obama is trying to convince us he's a Christian, here's a bit of advice from the Bible that will help him reaffirm that next time he addresses the nation...
"These are the things that you shall do; Speak the truth to one another, render in your gates judgements that are true and make for peace, do not devise evil in your hearts against one another, and love no false oath, for these things I hate, says the Lord."- Zechariah 8:16
