The liberals always jump to conclusions anytime there is a problem. For example, the Times Square bomber that was stopped this week, the Democratic NYC Mayor Bloomberg suggested that it was “probably some right wing nut job that was unhappy with the health care bill” Why would he suggest this?
There has been no reported incident of violence by any conservative, tea party member or for that matter a republican, but the liberals are trying to show tea party members as Timothy McVeigh wannbes.
This is the third attack in a year on our soil. We had the underwear bomber in Detroit, the massacre at Ft. Hood Texas and now this foiled attempt in New York which by the way was thwarted by a newspaper stand vendor, but of course Janet Napolitano took full credit for the capture. Napolitano was of course the one that stated, “the system worked” when the Detroit bomber was captured by passengers after his bomb material failed to ignite.
How can she say, “the system worked” when the system had nothing to do with the detection or capture of this terrorist.
No one in the Obama administration will call these what they are; a terrorist attack. They don’t want to step on any toes in the Muslim world.
They will however call the people of Arizona “racists” for having the guts to enforce the laws that the federal government will not. These are laws already on the books yet the federal government will not enforce them.
The high cost of cheap labor is destroying our country.
According to the Center on Immigration Studies, households headed by illegal aliens imposed more than $26.3 billion in costs on the federal government in 2002 and paid only $16 billion in taxes, creating a net fiscal deficit of almost $10.4 billion, or $2,700 per illegal household.
Among the largest costs are Medicaid ($2.5 billion); treatment for the uninsured ($2.2 billion); food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches ($1.9 billion); the federal prison and court systems ($1.6 billion); and federal aid to schools ($1.4 billion).
Legalization (Amnesty) would increase average tax payments by 77 percent, but average costs would rise by 118 percent.
The Center did two simulations of immigration reform and found that in both cases the deficit left by each illegal household would be -$6,022 and -$7,668 It’s a no win situation. Granting amnesty will not alleviate the problem.
Leaving our borders wide open will however lead to many more attacks on American soil and will certainly kill more people. We need to treat these foiled bombers as if the bombs had gone off and we need to secure our borders now.
