Blame It On The Black Dude

There is one consistent complaint from Republicans as to why there are problems in the United States of America–a black dude from Africa who wormed his way into the presidency.

1. High national debt. It was $5 billion when George Bush became president in 2001 and when he left it was $11 Trillion. Why? The black man, of course.

2.The unemployment rate was about 5% when George became president and it was 10% when the black man arrived.

3. There is a scandal in the IRS under the  administration of Barack Obama. Of course, the head of the IRS was appointed by George Bush, what the heck, blame it on the black man.

4. Rich people were making out like bandits but who came along to punish these hard working folk-the Black Dude!

Senator Ted Cruz says failure to pass a “common sense immigration bill” is the fault of Barack Obama. If one passes, he will take credit and how can Republicans agree with anything desired by the black man??

Sheriff Joe Got His Gun Ready

Sheriff Joe is one mean dude and he is not the kind of man who gives a damn about laws and courts since God appointed him guardian of the borders of the United States of America. Sheriff Joe Arpaio has spent the past two decades guarding-almost single handedly–America’s border with Mexico and intends to make certain that no dark skinned folk can walk the streets of an American town without encountering a policeman who will make clear that OUR streets belong to white skinned God loving folk. There are some groups of people seeking to gather petitions to recall our God loving sheriff, but they will not put a halt to his efforts to clean streets of dark skinned folk whose ancestors come or came from Mexico.

OK, so there are over400 cases of sex crimes that Joe just didn’t get around to investigating. But,which comes first-protecting America against a Mexican invasion or paying attention to some gal who claims a guy assaulted her? OK,so Joe has cost the government about $25 million in charges against the police. The bottom line is that Joe is for US and will protect US against THEM and you know who THEM are, don’t you?

Sheriff Joe Ain’t No Law Man

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is one tough hombre who has captured thousands of criminals without having to fire a shot. Once one of them bad guys hears that Sheriff Joe is on their trail they vamoose for the border and seek refuge in old Mexico. Of course, Sheriff Joe never actually goes after any criminal who is in possession  of a weapon of mass destruction, he prefers women and children and farmers who are seeking a new life in old America. So, if you are one of those desperadoes who is of Mexican heritage, you will be frisked and sent to jail if unable to produce any documents which prove that you were born in America, North America, that is.

Judge Murray Snow is not impressed with the police qualifications of Sheriff Joe.  He noted campaigns that result in halting thousands of people who are of Hispanic heritage are in “violation of either federal criminal law or of applicable state law.” In other words, Sheriff Joe is a criminal.

Forgotten European Youth

Among the tragedies of Europe’s dance with austerity has been a dramatic rise in unemployment throughout the region. An estimated 50% of young Spaniards lack jobs and similar figures are evident in Greece or Italy or even Sweden. Hundreds of Swedish young boys and girls went on a rampage through the streets of Stockholm showing their anger at being ignored and having their lives put on hold. They set fire to over 300 cars, burned down a restaurant and threw stones through store windows. There are even reports of a police station being burned to the ground. The initial outbreak most probably arose from police killing a 69 year -old man who was wielding a machete. Young people felt the police over-reacted.

It is time for Europe to abandon the austerity tactic and go back to some old fashioned John Keynes stimulus to the economy. Sweden might borrow the Depression CCC which placed one million young Americans to work on infrastructure tasks. FDR even pushed through bills that paid artists to paint or musicians to play music of people to put on plays. Provide meaningful work and riots will cease and desist.

Drugs,Drugs, Drugs

Future historians will shake their heads in wonder at drug policies that arose in the United States during early years of the twentieth century because what was made law  made absolutely no sense. Throughout the history of the United States  there were no laws against use of drugs until the opening decade of the twentieth century. Initially, these new laws were aimed at Chinese opium dens since it was assumed Chinese immigrants were attempting to damage the  lives of decent white people of European descent. Thus was initiated drug policies which have wrecked havoc  on the lives of people in Latin America. During the past several years over 70,000 have died in Mexico due to drug lords and their murderous gangs.

The Organization of American States(OAS) just issued a new report which blasts laws that make drugs illegal because the end result has been the emergence of drug lords, corruption and death. Americans want drugs and the cost of their desire is corruption, drug gangs and death for thousands throughout Latin America. Jose Miguel Insula, secretary general of the OAS, is calling for review of current laws and changes that would result in destroying drug  lords. Step one is to legalize  drugs, provide inexpensive drugs to those seeking them, and to enable Latin Americans to end their fear of drug wars.

Death Takes No Holiday In Mexico

The American people, like many in this world, have a  love affair with drugs. We            consume enormous quantities of drugs and a high percent come from the sad nation of Mexico. The act of making possession of drugs a “crime” is really a crime against the people of Mexico. Since 2006 over 70,000 people have been killed in the drug  wars that rage in Mexico because we Americans insist that using drugs is among the high crimes in life. Prior to 1912 drugs were perfectly legal in this nation, and thus there were  no drug gangs to distort life either in America or in Mexico. Our insistence on criminalizing drugs has torn Mexico to pieces.

Alfredo Paramo and his brother,Diego, were in the city of Chihuahua  and  came to the attention of drug thugs who proceeded to chase them through the streets until both were shot to death. Their crime was being the son of David Paramo, a journalist who has taken on drug lords. The boys were killed, but every American is responsible for their deaths. It is time to make drugs legal and end the horror which besets Mexico.

Big Government OK Say Opponents

Among the mysteries of modern life is why libertarians and anti-government Republicans support allowing government representatives to halt people on the streets and check their IDs. For those who fear black helicopters descending from the skies to seize one’s weapons, it is rather strange why this  person insists Federal authorities and local police can halt anyone and demand identification. Judge Sarah Barker issued an injunction against  enforcement of an Indiana law which allows warrantless arrests of people and declares invalid their possession of a counselor ID. As she put it, this law, “effects warrantless arrests for matters that are not crimes.”

My question–how does a cop know which person on the street has a counselor ID? In reality, this law allows any policeman to half any citizen and demand an ID. Welcome to the land of Big Brother. I await another filibuster by Senator Rand Paul against this form of Big Government.

Oh Them Wetbacks

Let’s face it, Republicans are NOT against the presence of illegal immigrants, they just want to return to the good old days when them wetbacks tended to ranch products and then returned for a siesta in dear beloved Mexico. In the good old days, they never lingered long enough to have children who went to OUR schools and cost us money. Of course, during World War II about a million of those wetbacks were asked to come to America and tend to our crops while American soldiers were fighting overseas. Republican Congressman Don Young summed up his party’s stance on illegal immigrants. “My father had a ranch, we used to have 40-50 wetbacks  to pick tomatoes. It takes two people to pick the same tomatoes, we now have technology.” And, let’s make clear this technology does not have children.

Republican farmers much prefer a world in which they can have as many wetbacks as they want, just as long as once the crops are in, they fly back to Mexico and only return when the next crop has come in. Ah, the good old days when wetbacks knew their place in our capitalist scheme of things.

To Hell With Drug Lords!

During the past decade over 60,000 people in Mexico have died due to drug lords fighting with one another as well as with the basic idea of security within the nation. They have bribed their way to power in Mexico and in the process ordinary citizens are caught in the cross fire. There is increasing evidence that thousands of people in Mexico have lost faith in their police and armed forces. Vigilantes in southern states have taken over towns, arrested the police and raided homes in search of drugs. They are tired of  police who work for drug lords rather than citizens of the community.

As one leader noted, “we have besieged the municipality because criminals operate with impunity in broad daylight in view of municipal authorities.” How about vigilantes heading for America and demanding an end to drug lords who operate with similar municipalities?

Find A Place For Them

It was just a few months ago that Senator Rand Paul demanded that President Obama build electric fences and send hundreds of helicopters to supervise our border with Mexico in order to prevent illegal immigrants from swarming over the border and coming to America to pick peaches. He was concerned that illegal folk would take away jobs from Americans who want to pick strawberries and pick  up garbage. The Senator now argues, “let’s  start the conversation by acknowledging we are not going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. If you want to work, if you want to live and work in America, we will find a place for you.” He is proposing something termed, “probation.”

If 12 million illegal immigrants left America tomorrow it would  seriously damage the economy because it would remove 12 million customers who purchase goods each day of the week. It would open new jobs in the farm fields of America, but unfortunately, those jobs would go unfilled. Let’s face reality, there are not millions waiting to seek jobs in meat packing plants. I have no idea as to the meaning of “probation.”

Oh, the Obama  administration has deported twice as many illegal immigrants as did the Bush administration.
