It would be difficult to overstate the costs of importing welfare recipients into this country. However, there are other attendant consequences that result from the far too porous border that we share with Mexico. Tom Tancredo offers insight into the damage that is being wrought by the Mexican cartels' smuggling of terrorists into the US.
Perhaps one reason for the Corruptocrats' intentionally and grossly underfunding ICE is to facilitate another 9-11 type scenario to justify passing a Loopy Left version of the Patriot Act. Such an law would undoubtedly include draconian criminal punishment for facecrime, thoughtcrime, and most of all for speechcrime for pandering insufficiently to the Theftocrats' permanent entitlement constituencies.
To pay for those constituencies, it is necessary to confiscate the resources of those who are not part of that group. Wired Magazine reports that Brick-a-Brack Obuma's ecofascist supporters are pushing for significant hikes in taxes on gasoline and other forms of energy. Worse yet and consistent with the totalitarian aspect of the leftist live-as-we-dictate crowd's desperation to control others, they are proposing federal control of local building codes.
Collectively, these various constituencies comprise the Borg. There are several Borg characteristics that should be recognized for the purpose of identifying Borg. First, to gain Borg status one must unquestioningly adopt the prepackaged collection of Borg values and beliefs. The other precepts follow.
The prime directive of the party-of-government is to increase the size of their bureaucracy. Their delusions of grandeur make them think that they know best how everyone should live. Conforming to the official party line is mandatory. The loony left's causes are so holy that there are no acts so low that they will not stoop to them in order to achieve their lofty goals. Ethics are superfluous hindrances. Tocqueville should be written out of history for recognizing about the US that the republic will not long endure now that the Theftocrats have learned that the people can be bribed with their own money.
Anyone who has had it up to here with the Borg's power and money grabbing might want to try this on for size. You know, a trillion bucks here, a trillion there, and the next thing you know you're into some real money.
Significant numbers of dollars are also being spent trying to clean up BP's oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. With any luck, tax dollars spent there should be recovered from the as yet unidentified responsible parties. So now, O-buma plans a fourth trip to wade through the mess. What is he doing, and what in the h e double hockey sticks does he hope to accomplish?
He will arrive replete with a fawning entourage of lapdog presstitutes and other hangers on who will scuttle about in unison with him like a bunch of fiddler crabs foraging for dinner. They will record every word, nuance, and gesture as he frets and struts about barking the tale of an idiot who is full of sound, fury, and baloney. Thank you, William.
One of its handlers should inform the Obumessiah that he should stop embarrassing the nation, stay in DC, and pretend to be a leader for a change.
This post ends on a sad note. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. A bright beacon of rational deliberation, spirited debate, and ethical consistency has been extinguished from the Bolgosphere. The Bartaverse is no more. It will be missed.
May your gods be with you.
