Washington? Do Something? Yeah, Right!

Reader comment on item: [Hesham Hedayet and] Border Agencies in Denial

Nancy is 100% correct -- Washington SHOULD do something... BUT, will they? Don't hold your breath...

Both the Executive and Legislative branches of government, regardless of party, are packed with people who sell out for votes. They don't care if they can add new voters to their respective parties from the ranks of terrorists, or from the apologists for the terrorists.

They also don't care from whom they take campaign donations -- as witnessed by not just the Chinagate debacle, but also by the abundance of campaign cash flowing in from Arab & Islamic concerns. Additionally, NOT ONE of these "moderate" Islamic groups has accepted the established facts about 9-11, but rather each continues to parrot the propaganda/party line about how it was all caused by "the Israelis and 4000 Jews who didn't show up for work at the WTC on 9-11" -- ignoring the fact that many Jews died that day (as well as many Moslems) and the number of Jews employed at the WTC was somewhere in the hundreds, not thousands, so the claims are beyond hyperbole and sound like some drug-induced hallucination...

So, no... I do not expect Washington to do anything. They will shuffle papers and shuffle employees, create a new bureaucracy, and make many self-important speeches... But, when it comes time to take any real action to protect Americans within our own borders, you can count on only one person to protect you and yours -- that person is you:

Take care in all your decisions -- especially during next month's elections. Do not vote for ANYONE who isn't fully committed to taking real action to protect us. Don't accept hot air and campaign promises. Demand and expect real action, starting with our borders.

Off my soapbox!
