While the propaganda machine’s former fox “news” anchor mouth piece talks of “tar babies” and the president reduces Our citizenship to paperwork as he tells us that as long as you speak English you can go from "picking crops to opening a grocery from cleaning offices to running offices", one can’t help to sense a little racism, though I’m sure it wasn’t meant intentionally. I don’t think they even realize how racist they are, not to mention disconnected and disrespectful of working class CITIZENS that are legally in this country and doing those jobs.
Li’l bush’s “see I can please everyone/I’m a middle of the road guy” speech on immigration the other night stopped short of penalizing employers that employ people that are in this country illegally. Surprise! Surprise! He informed us that illegal immigrants can join the ranks of our armed forces. He also told us that people in this country illegally do the work that “Americans don’t do” (maybe that’s because the illegal immigrants are doing the jobs).
But is the “immigration crisis” real or is it a distraction from the United States Government illegally tapping the phones or compiling the phone records of its citizens and their “free” press ? And whether you, as a citizen, “don’t mind” the spying/prying or not, it is still an ILLEGAL action. Is the great immigration debate a distraction from bush’s war of choice in Iraq, where the violence continues, killing more people every day? Is it a distraction from the CIA leak investigation, which may see the indictment of the great satan, and may involve the greater satan (as does the whole spying thing)?
Speaking of the CIA, coming soon to a hearing near you, the man instrumental in the NSA “domestic surveillance” program, the existence of which former fox news anchor/press secretary “can not confirm or deny”. Michael Hayden is the man the failure-in-chief wants as the Director of the CIA, and for the same exact reason he wanted the last Director, porter goss. Big Brother could never take over in a country as free as ours, could it?
In this world, where a pope that wore humble, worn out, brown shoes is replaced by one that wears Prada. Where sky high gas prices increase the cost of living as big oil not only is making unprecedented profits (providing for $400,000,000.00 “golden parachutes” for former employees) but also gets tax breaks from the oil men in Our White House. Where the world’s “superpower” wants to enlarge its nuclear arsenal, while making threats and déjà vu like statements about a country that says its nuclear power will be used for energy, and is five to ten years away from being capable of having a nuclear warhead to match Our 7,000. Where reduction’s in Our Country’s revenue due to continued tax breaks for the rich and a $320,000,000,000.00 war of choice are off set by a Record Breaking debt, which future generations will still be paying foreign governments for. It's no wonder people care more about brittany's baby seat and American Idol. It's all so disheartening, disenfranchising, disgusting, and aggravating.
I guess I’ll just leave you with this from the very unlikely source of the president of Iran, in his letter to george w. bush:
"If billions of dollars spent on security, military campaigns and troop movement were instead spent on investment and assistance for poor countries, promotion of health, combating different diseases, education and improvement of mental and physical fitness, assistance to the victims of natural disasters, creation of employment opportunities and production, development projects and poverty alleviation, establishment of peace, mediation between disputing states and distinguishing the flames of racial, ethnic and other conflicts were would the world be today? Would not your government, and people be justifiably proud? Would not your administration's political and economic standing have been stronger? And I am most sorry to say, would there have been an ever increasing global hatred of the American governments?"
