Congress & Duplicit y on the Border



It's amazing how congress can get a 2/3rds vote to override a veto on pork spending ($23Bn for nebulous "water projects"), but they just can't seem to muster the funds for border security, the most popular issue in America:

The border security funding provision had passed both the House and Senate by nearly unanimous margins, but was 'mysteriously' stripped out in joint committee. A nice trick, don't you think?

Sen. So-and-So: "Aw, golly-- I voted to get that border secured, but those darn [Democrats/Republicans] wouldn't support the appropriations bill!"

The guy quoted in the article as being upset that the provision was mysteriously removed was South Carolina's Lindsy Graham. Graham is the biggest apologist for illegals in the U.S. Senate next to John McCain. He was the one who pushed for amnesty by saying "we are going to tell the racists to shut up!" Now the little snake knows he is in trouble (he is up for election in 08) so he is posturing like he is for a secure border. Hey, Sen. Graham, you little phony, SHUT UP!

This really shows how dysfunctional the American government has become.

People have been screaming for tighter border control for years. Congress ignores it.

People have been screaming for energy independence for 30 years yet no politician has sought to harness that emotion as propulsion for serious energy policy.

They take our money and do with it as they please- they give it to Mexico, give it to abortionists, give it to dictators, give it to able-bodied welfare queens, waste it on endless foreign wars. We cry out to have our border secured, partly for our security, partly because we want to stem the tide of entitlements that we are forced to provide. But no one fears our cry. They only maneuver, posture, finger point, give excuse after excuse. At the end of the day, one thing is assured: we will not be represented.

Yet they continue to exact their claim upon our paychecks. This is not freedom, my brothers and sisters.
