A Simple, Little Question…

ImageNothing complicated, just a short, simple question:

Our wise leaders from both parties have cobbled up a solution to the (estimated) 12 million or so illegal aliens that live and work here but send their money south. The ‘solution’ evidently does not ship them out, so they will remain as before. It offers citizenship, encouraging more to follow them, I suppose. But that’s not my question.

THE QUESTION:

If our government isn’t willing to prevent millions of illegals entering steadily, how can it claim to be doing everything possible to prevent illegal drugs from entering, given that the illegal people come from the same places the illegal drugs do?

Put another way, if the government were serious about drugs coming in, wouldn’t it be searching all those illegals before allowing them in? And if it can’t search them, fencing them out?

Hmnn..?

    California, New Mexico, and Arizona have legalized “medicinal” marijuana. A little more pressure and the feds should yield. Then you won’t have to worry so much about illegal drugs ~ unless you live in Texas…

    A simple answer. It’s been said we, whatever our message with our personal conservative touch, are preaching to the choir. Like Mary at the Christmas party the night before Christmas…everyone was feeling Mary…then Mary went home. Choir has vamoosed too. Established elders who pass the collection plate and count the money are still in charge and looking how to prop up the order required to stay on top.

    Personally, I consider government prohibition of ‘victimless’ crimes such as drugs, unworkable and so both foolish and destructive. Seeing pot converted into a regulated and tax-productive twin to booze will seem progress to me. The government claim to be doing its best to stop drugs while deliberately allowing millions of ‘mules’ (illegal immigrants carrying drugs for the smugglers) unopposed entry is intended to underline the hypocrisy of the failed ‘Drug War.

    Seems to me, the party has gone on way past Christmas, the band has gone home, the cleanup crew is arriving and the maitre’d is approaching with the bill, while the politicians who encouraged the party and made so merry have vanished from sight…
