Common Sense

Common Sense

                       By Mrs. Goodmanners

There are advantages to being older than dirt, like you’ve been around the block a few times and took pictures. History reruns as regularly as Myth Busters. Of course, the wrinkles and gray hair can make a girl want to hang black crepe over her mirrors. And since my extended campaign to enlighten the world that these are signs of wisdom has stalled, I thought I’d take you youngsters on a walk down memory lane into the long-forgotten Valley of Common Sense.

Thomas Paine used to talk a lot about common sense back when we were just kids, but that was before he got his shoe buckles turned around backwards and not even Dr. Franklin could get Tom’s hardware straightened out. Still, Tom made good sense when he used common sense.

Let me tell you, old Tom would be horrified by the lack of regard for nature and man’s natural rights by today’s twisted phoney environmentalists and their mutual parasitic existence with the bloodsuckers in our nation’s capitol.

What? An old conservative white woman is worried about the environment? Well, dust my britches. That can’t be right. Everybody knows conservatives just want to commit unlawful hanky-panky with the environment so their rich corporate buddies can get richer and richer, at the expense of mother earth and the children, of course. The children that didn’t get lost at Planned Parenthood, anyway. Woe be unto Gaia! Oh yeah, and the poor little children!

I know! Let’s pass a bunch of laws that will protect everybody by giving those wonderfully altruistic federal agencies more control over those awful people who don’t care about our beautiful world, because, as any progressive-minded person knows, mama Gaia can’t survive without carbon trading and food safety. And, while we’re saving the earth and the children and the eggs, let’s tweak these laws to give an advantage to our campaign donors…I mean, our responsible friends, who aren’t really corporations, but just kindly old job-makers for…oh say, chemists and scientists who just want to improve on Mother Nature’s design by reworking seed genes and useful chemicals to help farmers enjoy the earth’s bounty. The new improved bounty. The patented ones. The ones which the company can sue unsuspecting farmers for when the patented genes skip over to their fields uninvited. The ones that are creating Franken-weeds that nothing will beat into submission. The ones that no one has a clue what the long-term effects will be on humans or animals who consume the bountiful fruits of the genetically-altered, better-than-nature’s, patented seeds and their accompanying chemical sprays.

What a grand idea! Just think, if Monsanto’s enhanced Round-Up creates weeds that cannot be killed and that wonderful elixir is sprayed on our genetically-altered food, people will evolve into Supermen. We’ll be able to leap small borders will a single bound–because who needs ’em when we’re one big happy race of superpeople, all living off the grace of chemical brilliance and genetic tinkering. And, we’ll be able to redistribute the fruits of our labor with lightning speed into the pockets of bureaucrats and CEOs–because they know what’s best, and in order to keep us safe from ourselves, they will need a little more in resources than the ordinary sheeple, who really are overweight anyway. As an added bonus, we’ll be able to squash those pesky organic farmers and local farmers with regulations as tough as tire irons–and, if we’re really lucky, we can eliminate all competitors for Mother Earth’s love by having our genetically-altered seeds render sterile all those inferior natural seeds. Won’t Mama be proud?

Gosh darnit! I just love a happy ending, don’t you?

Except, Forbes Magazine isn’t very happy. In 2009, they named Monsanto as Company of the Year. However, that little love pat came back to bite them in their posterior. In October, 2010, they had a change of heart:  Forbes was Wrong on Monsanto. Really Wrong. Unfortunately, the Forbes author’s distress was over the failure of Monsanto’s enhanced Round-Up to kill the super-weeds–as if there is no correlation between the two and those wonder-weeds mysterious dropped in from outer space–and he was really whizzed off about the cheap Chinese dandelion-destroyer overtaking the market. He seemed more regretful about the financial hit than the fact Monsanto had created a Franken-weed. Just kinda ignored that whole part of issue. He also lamented that Monsanto’s expensive bio-engineered seed corn–with eight-brand-spanking-new genes–looks like a dud. These terrible turns of fate for Monsanto has lead to massive share declines and–bless Forbes’ heart–ridicule from other publications for the premature crown of corn silk they bestowed on Monsanto.

Lest I give the impression this author is a dollar-sign dolt, he is genuinely worried. This company-of-the-year debacle could be as bad as when Forbes named Pfizer C.O.T.Y in 1998, then Viagra went limp. Despite Pfizer sucking in a list of smaller drug companies and their bevy of new drugs that have turned out to be as useful and safe as Viagra, things are still on the skids. But there’s a kernel of hope to be found. The author is sure Monsanto, like Pfizer in its field, will maintain its destiny to be the premiere bio-engineered seed purveyor for years to come. I’m so happy for him. In those years to come, I’m sure he will be proud of the second nose he grows on his left cheek after decades of consuming genetically-altered food that has been sprayed with bizarre chemicals that may help create rampaging, killer tomatoes from genetically altered seeds that will eat him and both his noses. But hey! Monsanto’s stock went through the roof. Let’s get our priorities straight here, kids.

Lord only knows how people have fed themselves since the beginning of time without the FDA and Congress to regulate every morsel that goes into their mouths. Common sense, people–something there is a dearth of in the hallowed halls of Congress.

 In the meantime, let’s put aside this old woman’s hyperbole and sarcasm. Houston ain’t the only place with problems. It’s time we, the chubby and skinny people, tell the government to knock it off. Ban these monster seeds, stop trying to regulate what moms can sell to buy baseball uniforms, and get out of my kitchen! Then get out of the way and let farmers farm, and states control their own food production with as few common sense regulations as possible. For more on this story and a decidedly un-sarcastic view, see this article and those linked: Monsanto’s Ongoing Corruption Incites Forbes Retraction.

Brain Washing

By Tinter

America has been brainwashed. The methods used are easily identified, and the success is obvious.  Hitler’s mass appeal techniques have been studied and are used by government and the media.  Our schools, movies, and media have dumbed-down the populace to the point that real Americans who support limited government, limited taxation, gun ownership, etc. are considered the oddballs in America today.

During the American Revolution, the pro-big-government citizen was called as a Tory. In 1777, George Washington was told that several Tories had hanged themselves, and he replied,   “One or two have done what a great number ought to have done long ago – committed suicide. By all accounts there never existed a more miserable set of beings than these wretched creatures now are.”  When the Patriotic Americans won the Revolutionary war, many thousands of Tories (liberals) were stripped of their property, and many tens-of-thousands fled the country.

American now has the biggest central government the world has ever seen.  Our military has over 700 bases in more than 100 countries.

Our national government has become the very same bloated bureaucratic democracy that once controlled us from England.

The Illusion of Hope and the Reality of America




The Illusion of Hope and the Reality of America
                                       by Kate Barry
On March 23, 1775, Patrick Henry spoke to the Virginia Convention at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia. Nearly everyone in this country can quote the last line of his speech, “Give me liberty or give me death”.
To modern ears, Henry’s proclamation, taken in context, may almost seem a foreign concept, even an extreme one, if we give credence to the memes repeated daily by segments of our media, federal agencies and former presidents. Intellectually, we know the founding generation overcame great obstacles to throw off a despotic rule, but emotionally, few of us can connect to the test of courage, hardship, and determination this generation endured to stand firm on their belief that death was preferable to oppression. Many of the patriots of that time did indeed pay the ultimate price. Others survived to forge a grand experiment of personal liberty, limited government and free enterprise. We are the heirs of this brave generation. 
Today, we are faced with a situation no less ominous than the one early Americans overcame. How we cope with this knowledge varies as widely as hair color, but the vast majority of the population is aware something is terribly wrong. Be it the economy, terrorism, social issues, worldwide unrest or all of these ingredients, we feel the shifting of our foundation. We are on the cusp of crisis, no matter which event lights the fuse, and we must be clear about who we are and what we stand for. Now, we must decide if we embrace the philosophy of liberty our founders won or the one that says if you love this country, love liberty and accept the responsibilities of a freeman, you are an extremist. We must decide if we accept that communism and socialism is an equally valid governmental path. We must decide if we believe we can outwit the history of these failed ideologies and make them work or if we know in every fiber of our being that the reason these ideologies have failed in the past are because they are oppressive, murderous regimes where social justice turns out to be a great chasm of a small, very wealthy elite class and an impoverished everyone-else.
Have we forgotten the price paid for liberty?  Let’s allow Mr. Henry to give us his take on such issues in the following excerpts from his speech.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

In vain..may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free…if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained—we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed….

Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.

Besides, sir, we have no [choice]. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard…. The war is inevitable—and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale…will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! 

I don’t know how anyone can read Patrick Henry’s address to the Virginia Convention and not see the obvious parallels to our current situation. I pray we never come to a battle front such as his generation faced, but even if we avoid open combat, there is indeed a battle waging: a battle of ideologies, a battle of lawful protection and defense of the Constitution and a battle of honor.

A friend of mine who served in the military and in law enforcement said to me a year or so ago, “You understand this is a battle of good vs. evil, don’t you?” Since I believe words have power, I’ve been hesitant to assign ‘evil’ to most men, but the time finally arrived when I realized we are engaged in a spiritual battle as well. Yes, Virginia, there is evil in the world.
How someone internalizes this spiritual battle is up to the individual. It need not be religious, but instead, a battle for the spirit of America and for each of her citizens’ rights according to nature’s law. However, for those of us who rely on faith, it’s also a spiritual battle to protect and defend the gifts granted to mankind by nature’s God.
No matter how we view the primary source of our natural rights, the result is the same. Our rights are as native to mankind as the air is to life. History has taught us again and again that there will always be people who fancy themselves as more entitled and they will, by their own nature, seek to suck all the air from others for their own personal gain.
If we take nothing else from Henry’s speech, we can see where the founding generation stood at that point in 1775. Now, 235 years hence, despite all the technological advances and ease of obtaining an education for those willing, the dual nature of man has not changed one iota. You cannot unlearn human nature. We can only choose to nurture the truthful parts of our adult-selves or we can choose to fall victim to our basest childish instincts to lie, cheat and steal for personal gratification.
Big government, no matter what name you give it, is nothing more than a despotic, spoiled toddler pitching temper tantrums in various forms and under many guises to take what it wants by whatever means necessary. Our elite ruling class and their counterparts throughout the world epitomize immature children who want what they want and will use whomever and whatever they can to obtain it. If they succeed, they will crush their willing accomplices as easily as they would an empty paper cup and destroy opponents by the millions.
We all either know or have seen the empty cups in operation and the methods they use. A good primer for understanding the history of this process is ‘Dupes’ by Paul Kengor.  Kengor’s sources are impressive–first source documentation from KGB files smuggled from the Kremlin and FOIA documents. Professor Kengor explains how ‘America’s adversaries have manipulated progressives for a century’ and he calls many of these high-profile dupes by name. As he points out, we cannot point solely at the left as dupes of foreign agents and subversive ideology. Progressive may make up the bulk of dupes, but people are people and many well-meaning Americans have fallen prey to the longstanding, organized effort to subvert this country from within. Eventually, alert dupes have recognized the manipulation and have gone on to actively work to reveal the lies. Unfortunately, too many never realize the role they play in advancing their own demise.
No longer can we take for granted America is the home of the free and the brave. If we hold this as truth, then it’s our responsibility to reject the insidious machinations of forces bent on our destruction with resolute determination to preserve bravery in the face of adversity, equal justice for all men and the natural right of all men to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
It’s natural to fear what turmoil may come to rip the fabric of our country and our lives. Fear comes from not being prepared emotionally and physically. We have one another and we must help our neighbors through hard times. We cannot worry or mourn the loss of transient things, but stand firm on our most precious possessions: liberty, sovereignty and our unique ability to overcome hardships to create great wonders from nothing more than our imaginations and hard work. 
Despite political spin and catchy mantras, sorrowful history does repeat itself when mankind indulges in the illusions of hope without truth. If we must repeat history, then let us hold fast to our founders’ belief in this nation and her people. Let us hold fast to the cause of liberty.

Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.

Founding Fathers Were Not Christians!

By Tinter

One of the most common statements from the “Religious Right” is that they want this country to “return to the Christian principles on which it was founded”.  However, a little research into American history will show that this statement is a lie. The men responsible for building the foundation of the United States had little use for Christianity, and many were strongly opposed to it. They were men of The Enlightenment, not men of Christianity. They were Deists who did not believe the bible was true.

When the Founders wrote the nation’s Constitution, they specified that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” (Article 6, section 3) This provision was radical in its day– giving equal citizenship to believers and non-believers alike.  They wanted to ensure that no single religion could make the claim of being the official, national religion, such as England had.  Nowhere in the Constitution does it mention religion, except in exclusionary terms.  The words “Jesus Christ, Christianity, Bible, and God” are never mentioned in the Constitution– not once.

The Declaration of Independence gives us important insight into the opinions of the Founding Fathers. Thomas Jefferson wrote that the power of the government is derived from the governed. Up until that time, it was claimed that kings ruled nations by the authority of God. The Declaration was a radical departure from the idea of divine authority.

The 1796 treaty with Tripoli states that the United States was “in no sense founded on the Christian religion.” This was not an idle statement, meant to satisfy Muslims– they believed it and meant it. This treaty was written under the presidency of George Washington and signed under the presidency of John Adams.

Day of Reckoning

Day of Reckoning

by Kate Barry

Mid-term elections don’t usually generate a lot of excitement, but today is not a run-of-the-mill mid-term. America chooses today what message we will send to Congress, both political parties and our fellow citizens. What do you want to tell them about where this country is heading? Now is your chance.

Vote. I hope you will choose wisely how you cast your ballot, but cast it out of conviction, not blind loyalty to a person or a party. Cast it because it reflects who you are and what you believe.

Un-mined and Undermined

Un-mined and Undermined

                                By: Mrs. Goodmanners

My goodness! Have you ever seen anything as amazing as the moment the first Chilean miner popped out of that rock rocket after 69 days of living like a mole 2000 feet underground? Like billions of folks all around the world, I held my breath until every last one of the miners and rescuers stood on the topside of terra firma. Lord have mercy! Here we have it all: The triumph of the human spirit; the triumph of technological ingenuity; and the triumph of people caring about people they didn’t know from Adam’s house cat.

 Americans were well represented in that rescue too. In the little town of Berlin, Pennsylvania, the employees of a small drilling company cheered that day too. They had reason to break out the Chinette for a celebratory lunch. Center Rock, Inc. made the whole rescue possible with their very own drill bit–invented by them (along with drilling equipment manufacturer, Schramm Inc. of West Chester, Pa.). Americans. In Pennsylvania. For 37 days, the company’s owner, Brandon Fisher, and his director of construction and mining tools, Richard Soppe, worked nearly around the clock to make the rescue possible months ahead of the predicted Christmas date for completion.
While the rescue clicked along, Center Rock’s intrepid employees still managed to conduct daily business. After all, they had customers who still needed their services. Imagine that! A company that’s inventive, cares about their customers and still has time to squeeze in a rescue of foreigners in a country way down yonder.
Let me tell you, that’s real sharing of wealth. It’s the wealth of knowledge, the wealth of caring about others and the wealth of American exceptionalism.  Of course, we could have sent them a couple million bucks and called it Mine Aid. The outcome would probably have been quite different since money seems to always fall into an abyss of bureaucratic incompetence, but I’m sure some government official would have truly enjoyed his new vacation home overlooking miles of spectacular scenery. Since the idea of throwing money at every problem in life never works out, our Pennsylvania heroes willingly shared the only kind of wealth around that works and it saved the lives of 33 men. 
Why, even NASA took time out of their busy schedule of building Muslim countries’ self-esteem to create the rock rocket, as well as a few backup capsules, just in case of malfunction. Their team also helped with nutrition since they know a little something about survival when cut off from the local A&P. And, NASA’s psychologists came in pretty handy with helping 33 men cope with being confined to a dark compartment stuck in the bedrock of Spaceship Earth. 
In fact, a bevy of Americans jumped right in to help out. From an email Mr. Goodmanners sent me, I got the scoop on the others. In addition to the Center Rock Company and Schramm Inc., here’s a list of the other terrible capitalist pigs that spread their considerable wealth of talents, time and equipment:
         UPS, the US shipping company, delivered the 13-ton
drilling equipment from Pennsylvania to Chile in less than 48 hours.
        Crews from Layne Christensen Company of Wichita Kansas
and its subsidiary Geotec Boyles Bros. worked the drills and machinery
to locate and reach the miners and then enlarge the holes to ultimately
rescue them.
        Jeff Hart of Denver Colorado was called off his job
drilling water wells for the U.S. Army’s forward operating bases in
Afghanistan to lead the drilling crew that reached the miners.
        Atlas Copco Construction Mining Company of Milwaukee,
Wisconsin provided consulting on how to make drilling equipment from
different sources work together under differing pressure specifications.
        Aries Central California Video of Fresno California designed the
special cameras that were lowered nearly a mile into the ground sending
back video of the miners.
        Zephyr Technologies of Annapolis Maryland, made the remote monitors
of vital signs that miners wore during their ascent.
        NASA Engineers designed the “Phoenix” capsule that miners would
be brought to the surface in, and provided medical consulting, special diets
and spandex suits to maintain miners’ blood pressure as they’re brought back
to the surface.
        Oakley (California) supplied and gave the sun glasses for the miners to
wear to protect their eyes from sunlight.
And just in case the American drill failed–which it didn’t–Canadian-based Precision Drilling Corp. and South-African company Murray & Roberts drilled backup rescue shafts. Lord love ’em. Good folks all.
I don’t know about Muslim countries, but American self-esteem took orbit. Not that most of us were surprised about anything these people did. We’ve known about Americans all along. But please, somebody notify the poor children who blame America for every hangnail and bump in the world’s road that there are more good, hardworking Americans whose risk-taking isn’t just about hoarding all the cash for themselves than there are those who are certifiable Scrooges. America might not be perfect, but no other country in the world is as generous with its technology and resources as America. Good grief. Yes, these horrible, greedy capitalists dared to be successful. And heaven forbid they be rewarded for their efforts.
All I’ve got to say is thank God for all the smart cookies who got off their duffs to make all sorts of unique doo-dads, gadgets and rockets. Thirty-three men are alive today because of them and who knows how many others have benefited from their products and their continual fiddling with their ideas to make something work and work well.
America should be proud and grateful for our entrepreneurs, our dreamers–our doers. I imagine Chilean citizens are pleased as punch too. The families of the miners, including the spurned wife who declined to stand in line behind the miner’s mistress for a hug, are probably beside themselves with gratitude their loved ones are safe. The Chilean government, I’m not so sure about.
Lo and behold, while Mr. Fisher and Mr. Soppe, NASA problem-solvers–the ones who still have a job as highly-educated-in-another-field-self-esteem coaches–and the host of others who turned out to help, worked day and night to free Chile’s trapped miners, the Chilean government busied themselves writing up a friend of the court brief opposing Arizona’s new illegal immigration law, then submitted it to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. This brief, filed along with nearly a dozen other Latin American countries, was accepted into record by one of our very own judges. Bless Paddy! Does this judge understand what a border does? Apparently, he thinks it’s a collie or place to buy books. Then let me be the umpteenth-millionth American to point out to His Honor-less that what happens within these US borders is an internal matter and not subject to review by banana republics that see no need to change their ways so as to provide opportunity for their own folks–unless, of course, it’s the opportunity to transport their major exports–humans and drugs.
Before anyone gets their knickers in a wad, I’m not talking about legal immigrants. Read that sentence again, dear. I’m talking about the sneaky Petes that steal into this country by hook or crook, thereby instantly becoming a criminal. No matter how bad their life is in their country, no matter how much pot they had to carry just to turn a buck, no matter how far they walked through treacherous terrain and banditos to make it to the border, they are here illegally. End of story. Of course, our very own government, the one that appointed His Honor-less to the bench, dangle carrots in the form of freebies for all who break the immigration laws. Talk about rewarding bad behavior. The average American is a decent person, but our government is about as smart as a box of rusted lug nuts.
Chile’s and its buddy nations’ intrusion into our business is dirt-road rude. It’s ungrateful. It’s none of their business, nor any other country’s, including the corrupt waste-of-space UN, what our laws are or how we enforce them. None. In fact, they have at their disposal an entire galaxy of no-say-so. To poke their nose into our border business is just about the most insulting response to help I’ve ever heard of. These Latin American countries aren’t showing us their briefs to help the 1 out 7 out-of-work Americans. They aren’t here to save lives or out of concern for the taxpayer who just shelled out a wad of cash in the form of a rescue. No, dear. They’re here for self-serving interests that run counter to America’s. Well, that’s a fine how-do-you-do. What would they have thought if we had responded to their crisis with a friend of the court brief demanding they ignore their laws to benefit illegal mining activity? I’m willing to bet two pans of biscuits and a pone of cornbread they would not appreciate us interfering in their business one little bit.
I mean, really….  
I’m happy we were able to help Chile and would do it again, but I’m not willing to dismiss our laws, burden the taxpayers even more than we already are, or to give foreign drug lords a wildlife refuge on our side of the border without so much as a whimper. Since our Congressional critters have done nothing to stem the human and drug traffic–current and past administrations–and have no intention of doing so, what choice has Arizona been left with? If our elected rusted-out, government lug nuts think friend of the court briefs from foreign countries are a good idea and if they think we should all be able to just scoot across any old border and suck up taxpayer resources anytime we want, I suggest they take it to Chile. Run on across their border illegally. Go on. We’ll wait. Then while you’re sitting in a jail cell, we’ll forward a brief, but friendly note to tell the Chileans what a big meany they are for enforcing their laws. I mean, we’re all one big happy family. Right? They shouldn’t mind at all since they’re in favor of us excusing illegal entry of any-old-body who wants to slip in the back door. Good luck, amigo, because the Chileans will be using our friendly note for target practice, just like we ought to be doing with their holey brief.
Like many Americans, I’m just plain hopping mad that Chile has joined in this attack on our sovereignty. The individual freedoms protected by our Constitution guarantees entrepreneurs the opportunity to invent a drill that saved their citizens. It also protects a creative vision that reached out beyond the confines of gravity and formed NASA. This applies to each and every company that worked to get Chile’s behind out from nearly a mile underground. In fact, our laws, our borders and our Constitution are meant to protect US citizens first and foremost, not pander to criminals who don’t respect this country or the opportunities that our citizens used to create a whole passel of products and services that have benefited the world. Without us being who we are, Chile would be in mourning.
Next time, Chile, just send us a thank-you note. 
Since Congress and the current yahoo administration is too busy humming We Are the World to notice the economic and human casualties piling up, the Constitution recognizes a state’s right to defend itself in Article 1, Section 10, paragraph 3.  No state shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not permit delay. If millions of foreigners streaming across our borders without due process and drug lords taking control of US soil and committing heinous acts of violence isn’t an invasion, then what is it? It’s sure not a picnic with friendly neighbors. 
It’s plain as the nose on your face; the Kumbaya Court is utterly incompetent. It has failed to do anything other than sue Arizona, side with the invaders against its own people, and send a few signs warning Americans to stay off their own land because of foreign violence. Arizona is without a doubt in imminent danger.
All of our states and citizens are struggling with a bad economy and with the bad legislation that created it, but none more so than the border states that are inundated daily by illegal aliens and by drug cartels that kill and kidnap and run an illegal substance business that is neither inventive or worth sharing. A gaggle of Latin America countries sticking their noses into our internal affairs is the last thing we need. Butt out. Clean your own house. We’ll take care of ours.
Come November 2, it’s time for this country to do our duty too and throw out as many of the political polecats as possible. It’s high time for them to change their tune to Buddy, Can You Spare a Dime. It couldn’t happen to anyone who deserves it more.
Oh! And by the way, Chile. You’re welcome.
