A Cop Hopped Up On His Own Egoistic Righteousness And A Badge Gets Away With Murder

In Response:

A Cop Hopped Up On His Own Egoistic Righteousness And A Badge Gets Away With Murder

In an unprecedented move St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Robert McCulloch dumped his prosecutorial responsibilities upon a grand jury.  By doing so McCulloch created a quagmire in which a "true bill" for probable cause to try Wilson for Brown's death was buried in a nightmare of testimony and evidence that only an actual trail jury should have been allowed to sift through.

The results?  Michael Brown was fallaciously tried without legal representation.        

Beyond the above there was no reason for Wilson to have to pursue the wounded Brown on foot and continue to shoot at Brown.

Brown was running for his life.  Where would he go?  How could he hide?

Wilson easily could have jumped back in his vehicle, turned around and followed the wounded Brown until other backup arrived.

Nope.  Wilson saw his chance for five minutes of fame and took it. 

This case represents a cop hopped up on his own egoistic righteousness getting away with murder.  A cop not only immorally acting under his color of authority but immorally protected by it too. 

Please sign this petition:      

The same unconscious culture that created the conditions for the Wilson and Brown incident to happen creates the majority of the ignorant, callous, American- exceptionalist posters below.

The hell you see is the hell you create and are responsible for.
May you be free from danger.
May you be physically and mentally happy.
May you have ease of support and well being.
May you be liberated.

Washington's Horrendous Border Hunger Games Are No Joke Mr. President

In response:

Washington's Horrendous Border Hunger Games Are No Joke Mr. President

Study Washington's insidious approach to illegal immigration and you will see that the system is set up to keep people suffering in poverty at home and coming illegally to the US. 

Yes, over the years you will see give and take - as in Amnesties or some relief for the undocumented "balanced" with billions more taxpayer dollars given away in border security boodle.  With that said, the system keeps causing more people to come by rewarding a few. 

Is this not Washington's Horrendous Border Hunger Games? 

Yes undocumented, if you can make it though you will be allowed to work for us for years and you may be able to stay.  Meanwhile taxpayers Washington will continue to use you and lie to you as you suffer the costs and consequences of this scam.    

Everyone needs to address this decade's old scam.  People will continue to come and die crossing the border.  Deportations will continue.  Taxpayers will remain angry.  And unless everyone involved educates themselves to the above and protests the above, we all will be just as responsible as Washington's immigration profiteers for the deaths and suffering that will without a doubt continue.

Wilson's Five Minutes of Fame Traded For Brown's Life And A Lifetime Of Pain

Wilson's Five Minutes of Fame Traded For Brown's Life And A Lifetime Of Pain

Five minutes of fame for a lifetime of pain. Wilson will never be able to stop looking over his shoulder. He will always be haunted by what he did (despite his cavalier attitude now). Taking someone else's life is also self-inflicted wound, suicide by a thousands cuts and haunting thoughts so to speak.

Wilson shows about as much remorse from shooting Brown in the head as he would from giving someone a traffic ticket. 

Wilson will never see the inside of a cop car again (from the front seat).

Washington Has Again Immigration Punked America

In response:

Washington Has Again Immigration Punked America

Punked, deceived, swindled, defrauded, duped, hoaxed, hoodwinked, bamboozled etc.

Obama's executive action is simply another step down Washington's insidiously dark, decades' old, profitized illegal immigration hole. 

That hole is so deep and dark that most Americans can't even remember why it exists.

Illegal immigration is primarily driven by hunger and poverty.  The vast majority of the undocumented come illegally to the US to put food on their own families' tables and to improve their lives.

Notice how Washington's political illegal immigration narrative never really addresses the reason that undocumented people come here?  Does that not seem a bit odd to you?

Another point you will never hear Washington's immigration profiteers discuss:  Washington's culpability in creating the same illegal immigration that they pretend to try and control or "reform".

One need's simply to research NAFTA and the US War on Drugs as they relate to illegal immigration in order to understand Washington's true motives.

Two other points:  Washington's corporate cronies profit from not only undocumented labor but also from billons in border security tax dollars.   As with Washington's war on drugs, corporate profits from illegal immigration are made from both the legal enforcement side (border security tax dollars) and the illegal profit side (the use of the undocumented for labor and reform).

Finally effective enforcement of either of these decades'-old illegal problems is a sham.  Effective enforcement would effectively stop the illegal and legal payoffs for Washington's never-ending, self-inflicted "wounds".

Will Washington's Border Hunger Games Get Harder to "Win?

In response:

Will Washington's Border Hunger Games Get Harder To "Win"?

Does Obama and Washington really care about the undocumented and their families? Or is his executive order simply another insidious ploy to keep his Corporate Masters' party in power while keeping undocumented laborers coming to the US for said Masters' profits?   

Did you notice - or have you ever noticed - how Obama and Washington ignore their Corporate Master's NAFTA and Drug War as central factors exacerbating illegal immigration to the US?  

Yet Washington may try and give another faction of his Corporate Masters (those of the border security industrial complex) 20,000 more border patrol agents?  Washington will push for the House to pass the Senate's S744 which not only contains an initial price tag of 46.3 billion dollars, but calls for the doubling in size of the US Border Patrol too.  Think of the costs passed on to taxpayers - payroll, training, border patrol stations, detention centers, court personnel, overtime pay, retirements, cars, guns, ammunition, walkie-talkies, cell phones, computers, law suits, Et. al.

Think of Washington's Corporate Masters' 40+ year long, one trillion dollar failed drug war.  Their illegal immigration version of the same is not far behind.    

Only a fool would ignore the fact that Obama's executive order will - without a doubt - entice millions more undocumented people to come to the US.  Only a fool would believe that hungry, motivated people can be stopped from finding a way into the US.

Only a fool would believe that America won't go through this immigration reform rigamarole again.
By the way, I speak as a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent.  I speak as someone who recently exposed US Border Patrol overtime corruption. In fact this corruption is the same corruption I exposed 30 years ago as a young agent.

Most importantly of all - think of how much more difficult it will be for hungry people to cross the border in order to come to work for Obama's and Washington's Corporate Masters. 
Think of Obama's action, its promise for a better life and how it will drive more poor people here. Think of continued border deaths.

Obama pretends to care for the undocumented and their families yet he says not one word about Washington's corrupt trade and drug war policies that not only causes those people to suffer in poverty at home but also entices them to come to America illegally.  

Yes Mr. President your Border Hunger Games just got harder and more fallacious.

I dare say that the blood of the undocumented who will suffer border deaths to come is on your hands, Washington's and your Corporate Masters'.

American Voters Are Immigration And Drug War Idiots

In response:

American Voters Are Immigration And Drug War Idiots

They have no clue as to Washington's NAFTA and drug war complicity in creating illegal immigration and its ensuing immigration reform(s).

Meanwhile the undocumented and drugs keep rolling in.

Washington's corporate cronies keep hiring the undocumented, jailing the addicted, and laundering cartel profits while billions in border security boodle - given out for 40 years - have produced semi-effective (at best) border and interior immigration or drug enforcement.

Why the hell don't you give Amnesty to the American drug addicts who you help foster and profit off of too?

The American Middle Class - Tag-team Immigration Swindled

In response:

The American Middle Class - Tag-team Immigration Swindled 

The American middle class - tag-team immigration swindled by the people "we" elect to represent our best interests.

One party plays the good immigration cop, the other the bad; yet both work for the same department of kleptocracy.

Both parties use the undocumented to further their masters' lust for cheap labor and border security boodle.

Meanwhile the American taxpayers are stuck with the costs and consequences.

The undocumented will keep coming yet none of these Washington immigration profiteers (who all claim to stand for the dignity of human beings and their families) will say one word about the border deaths or continued poverty their decades' old, corrupt NAFTA/drug war swindle will continue to produce.

Complacent Americans Aid and Abet Washington's Illegal Immigration Scam

In response:

Complacent Americans Aid and Abet Washington's Illegal Immigration Scam

Jump right into the immigration mix American voters.  Take a stand.  Pick one side or the other of Washington's illegal immigration narrative.  Rage at Obama, The Republicans, Liberals, Immigration Activists, The Undocumented, Amnesty, Mexico, Et al., ad infinitum.

Refuse to consider the fact that Washington is complicit in creating the very illegal immigration it refuses to fix.

Refuse to consider Washington's NAFTA, CAFTA and drug wars as substantive factors exacerbating illegal immigration.

Refuse to consider the fact that Washington's corporate cronies not only profit from - but depend upon - undocumented workers in order to maintain their exorbitant profit margins.

Refuse to consider the fact that immigration enforcement - like drug enforcement - has become institutionalized as another ineffective industry which is just as addicted to our tax dollars as America's drug addicts are to the products said industries can't stop.

Refuse to consider that the fact that the American middle class again will be ignored as it absorbs the costs and consequences of Washington's decades'-old immigration scam.

Refuse to consider the fact that the blood of the next wave of undocumented who - without a doubt - will come to America and suffer border deaths - will not only be on Washington's hands, but yours too.

Wake up.  Not matter how many agents Washington sticks on the border,  its enforcement efforts will never effectively stop hungry, motivated people.

Be willing to consider corporate America's insidious immigration motives which dwell outside of Washington's immigration narrative.

The Other Pawns In Washington's Illegal Immigration Scam

In Response:

The Other Pawns In Washington's Illegal Immigration Scam

Americans have had it with having to suffer the costs and consequences of Washington's decades' long, profitized illegal immigration scam.

Do any of Washington's millionaire politicians have to wait in line in over-crowded hospital emergency rooms? Lose jobs to the undocumented? See their tax dollars wasted on ineffective border security? Watch as failed enforcement unfairly turns the demographics of their towns into that of border towns?

Nope. Those calling the immigration shots live way above all that.

We know we are being used as pawns, just as the undocumented are. Yet who will put a stop to this madness?

President Obama do you expect us to be compassionate for the other pawns in this game while ignoring our own dignity and self respect?  Do you expect "We The People" to be labeled the "bad guys" because Washington abuses the undocumented at our expense?

How dare you President Obama (or Washington) victimize us for your cronies' profits.  How dare you dictate that "We The People" must accept your position - or be labeled as uncompassionate and uncaring because of your unilateral, undemocratic actions!

The Power of Willful Ignorance And Immigration Reform

The Power Of Willful Ignorance And Immigration Reform

One cannot underestimate the power of willful ignorance as it applies to illegal immigration and immigration reform.

Washington capitalizes upon America's willful ignorance about many issues, and illegal immigration is one of them: 

The majority of the undocumented come here because they need to feed their families

Washington's corporate cronies (agriculture, construction, fast-food, hotel-motel, food processing) not only hire but profit from using undocumented laborers

Washington's NAFTA and its war on drugs are designed to exacerbate profitable illegal immigration

Washington's Immigration "reform" rewards and guarantees its profitable illegal immigration cycle

Washington's cronies make billions from tax payer funded, ineffective border security boodle

Washington's ineffective yet profitized war on drugs and illegal immigration have dragged on at tax payer expense for over 40 years

Voters "buy into" and continually debate Washington's fallacious, illegal immigration narrative

Americans also suffer the costs and consequences of Washington's insidious system of profitized illegal immigration (overcrowded emergency rooms, school rooms, job loses, and unfair demographic changes to American home towns) 

Washington's ineffective drug and immigration enforcement have become institutionalized and normalized in America

Washington's profitized yet ineffective handling of illegal immigration is no different than that of its handling of health care, jobs, fuel and food costs, education, housing, jobs, elections, foreign policy (war) and the economy.

Institutionalized (Fill In The Blank) Ineffectiveness Brings Billions to Washington's Cronies

In response:

Institutionalized (Fill In The Blank) Ineffectiveness Brings Billions to Washington's Cronies 

Does (or did) any of Washington's cronies profit from ineffective health care?  How about the war in Iraq?  How about the Great Recession of 2008?  How about higher education and student loans?  How about the rising costs of fuel and food?  How about ineffective environmental protection?  How about NAFTA job losses? How about our 40+ year long war on drugs?      

You fill in the blank.  AND why would ineffective immigration laws and enforcement be any different? 

As a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent, it took me years to accept the truth. All things immigration in Washington revert back to crony profits from cheap labor, border security boodle, political graft, ineffective/profitable enforcement and NAFTA/CAFTA trade agreements that favor the trading rich at the expense of their countries citizens.

Washington's illegal immigration scam is not unlike their war on drugs: unwinnable
by design which translates into decades of acceptable enforcement ineffectiveness in exchange for billions in tax payer-funded corporate boodle.

Washington's Handling Of Illegal Immigration: Right Up There With Healthcare And The Economy

In response:

Washington's Handling Of Illegal Immigration:  Right Up There With Healthcare And The Economy

Why would illegal immigration be any different than any other ongoing problem that Americans face that Washington profitizes while tap dancing around?

Health care, jobs, education, the economy, poverty, war etc.?

Why would illegal immigration be any different than any other corrupt system that Washington's cronies cash in on?

This illegal immigration mess is about cheap labor, political gain, profitized trade agreements and billions is ineffective border security/drug enforcement boodle.

We The People suffer the costs and consequences while chasing our tails like some poor rabid border dog.

Yet read the posts below. See how the vast majority of posters take snippets of Washington's fallacious immigration narrative and pontificate how easy the problem could and would be to solve.

They blame anything, everything and anyone else while not realizing that their Washington spoon-fed arguments have zero to do with the actual cause of illegal immigration.

We have met the enemy Pogo, and the enemy is us.

Washington will never allow the border to be secured in such a way that it would interfere with NAFTA, illegal drugs, or its profitized system of illegal immigration. That's the part of "rocket science" that you don't get.

Who is America's 2nd largest source of oil and largest contributor of undocumented?
Not to mention illegal drugs.
Connect the immigration dots.

Immigration Greed - From The Personal To The Corporate - Rules The Day

In Response:

As a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent, I am sad to see this insanity go on.  Washington and the undocumenteds' home country elite create illegal immigration by their own NAFTA, CAFTA, and profitable drug wars.  Then its corporate cronies cash in on millions of undocumented laborers and billions in border security/drug war boodle.

"Reform" activists selfishly demand relief while ignoring that millions more people will continue to suffer not only in their home countries but once they cross the border too.

Immigration greed - from the personal to the corporate - rules the day.

Washington's illegal immigration profiteers do not discuss the actual reasons why people come here or their own culpability in the process.  Nor do they care about border deaths or the tens of thousands of people who have been slaughtered in their 40+ year long, failed drug war.

We have indeed met the enemy Pogo, yet most people continue to ignore him or are him.

Priming The Illegal Immigration Pump Washington Style

In response:

Priming the Illegal Immigration Pump Washington Style

Washington tries to appease the pro immigration crowd with some "provisional" visas for dreamers and their parents. The trade off will be pumping billions more tax dollars into their crony corporate border security crowd's pockets.

Give a little here, take a lot more there. Meanwhile - the status quo of profitized illegal immigration will continue to gorge itself upon millions more undocumented laborers and billions more in border security boodle.

And US taxpayers will (as they have since Reagan's Amnesty) continue to suffer the costs and consequences of Washington's fallacious immigration narrative.

The deportation section of the border security complex will continue to rake in the bucks as the Corrections Corporation of America charges US taxpayers $125.00 per person per day for incarceration. CCA's bed space is 33,000 as new detention prisons are being built now.

Only a fool would believe that the feigned liberal and/or conservative factions within this Kleptocracy parading as a democracy are real.

There is not one thing Washington does or does not do about illegal immigration that does not have a profit angle to it.

Washigton's corporate cronies simultaneously cash in on both the illegal sides and the enforcement sides of illegal immigration and illegal drugs.

Meanwhile ignorant posters blame the undocumented, Obama, Mexico, Central America, liberals, their mommas etc.

Or they come up with all these simple solutions that will never be used.

Arguing about or within Washington's immigration narrative keeps people dumbed down to that narrative and accomplishes nothing but maintaining the failed status quo.

Designed to keep Americans fighting and unaware of Washington's role in creating illegal immigration.

The Washington kleptocracy's continuing immigration hoax depends upon voters getting all stirred up, blame gaming and fighting each other.

Meanwhile - the lifeblood of their illegal immigration monster- cheap labor and border security boodle - will continue to fuel Washington's insidious immigration narrative and its insidious immigration status quo.

Obama will kiss the Mexican elite's NAFTA/Narco culos but not say one word about 43 murdered students killed by narco thugs connected to the Governor of the Mexican state of Guerrero and Mexican Present Pena-Nieto's political party.

Tell my why that after decades of debating illegal immigration Americans have forgotten the reason that the undocumented from (fill in the blank) or Mexico come here?
Primarily it is about putting food on their tables.

Do you know that Washington's own NAFTA fattens the pockets of the bi-national trading elite while enlarging the disparities in wealth of all countries involved to unheard of levels?

Washington co-creates this mess then pretends to fix it with some type of Amnesty du jour (immigration reform) which contains to provisions whatsoever that deal with the reason the undocumented come here.

Meanwhile Washington corporate cronies tag-team rape not only the undocumented, but US taxpayers too. Use one group for cheap labor and eventual "immigration reform" while taking billions of tax dollars from the second for "designed to be semi-effective" border enforcement. Both insidiously feed off each other and exacerbate this decades' long, insane cycle.

in response:

I wonder who few if any here talk about the economic reasons that illegal immigration has become a Washington institution and guaranteed to continue?

This ongoing sham ultimately is about profit from millions of laborers and billions of your tax dollars going to ineffective border security boodle.

And as most people sense, We The People have no say so in this sham (except for the bantering back with forth with each other powerless commentators).

I don't think the majority of posters here really understand what is driving Washington's narrative about illegal immigration.  I say that as a person who worked within the system for 26 years (US Border Patrol/INS/ICE) and studied it another 10 years in retirement.

Washington's Immigration Road Is Paved In Greed, Blood, Deceit and Shame

In response:

Washington's Immigration Road Is Paved In Greed, Blood, Deceit and Shame

President Obama will use his executive power for "deferred action dreamers" and their parents.  He will "throw a bone" to a small percentage of America's current undocumented and predictably ignore the insidious reasons that illegal immigration has continued for decades - and will continue for decades to come. 

This political chess move will be seen as another bump in America's long, dark and treacherous immigration road.

Despite Obama's move, Reagan's Amnesty, and current attempts at immigration reform,  Washington's immigration road is paved in greed, blood, deceit, and shame.

That is the truth Washington's immigration profiteers do not want Americans to see.

Illegal immigration brings cheap laborers and big profits for America's greedy, corporate elite.  Washington's NAFTA - which simultaneously creates profit for the bi-national elite and poverty for the foreign poor - is the real cause of illegal immigration.  Sadly the undocumented leave their homes while some will die - and will continue to die - in the border crossing process.   

Don't be fooled by the Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Custom's Enforcement's (ICE) token attempts to curb the hiring of the undocumented.  Their attempts are ineffective while  designed to make Americans think Washington actually cares about illegal immigration and undocumented employment.

I speak as a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent. 

Don't be fooled by how secure Washington says the Mexican border is.   Hardened criminals will continue to be among the people who slip through the line.  Those hardened criminals will continue to commit violent crimes against innocent American victims. 

Don't be fooled by the billions of American tax dollars given out to Washington's crony border enforcement industry.  Here again only a fool would believe that border enforcement is designed to be anything but semi-effective.  Just as with their "war on drugs", the huge profits in immigration  enforcement are made by making the enforcement monster bigger while keeping it semi-effective. 

Don't be fooled by "immigration reform" which pretends to solve the above problems.   How can Washington's "reform" solve illegal immigration when Washington fails to address its own foreign trade and drug war policies that exacerbate illegal immigration?               
After all, one would not want to kill the goose that continually lays those golden labor, drug, and enforcement boodle filled eggs,  now would one?

Don't throw Americans under the immigration reform bus either.  Illegal immigration affects American taxpayers.  Americans are victims who have to wait in line in overcrowded hospital emergency rooms.  It affects their schools.  It causes some amount of job losses to those Americans.  It causes billions of their tax dollars to be wasted on ineffective border security.  And like it or not, it forces some Americans to accept unwanted demographic changes to some of their towns.  You folks need to get it. This is simply not fair to some Americans and has affected their natural feelings of compassion and generosity.

Finally I say to pro immigration activists - don't allow the suffering of the future undocumented to  continue.  Try and think of them - and not only yourselves. 

Immigration reform that does not attack poverty as the root cause of illegal immigration is self-defeating.  More undocumented will - without any doubt whatsoever - continue to come, suffer, and die in the process. 

You must include Washington's poverty causing i.e. illegal immigration causing trade policies within your activism for the undocumented.  Otherwise you are selfishly part of the problem and not part of a solution.

Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) You Can't Get To There From Here

In response:

Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) You Can't Get To There From Here

Remember the joke about someone stopping for directions and being told "you can't get to there from here"?

Hey CHC, you can't get to there (stopping deportations) from here (failing to address the root cause of deportations).

Kind of like asking Washington to stop soldier causalities without asking Washington to stop wars.

The root cause of deportations and illegal immigration is government induced poverty (NAFTA) and the government induced Drug War.

The CHC strengthens Washington's illegal immigration by demanding to stop deportations without addressing the actual cause of deportations.

CHC, you can't get to there from here and that is by design - and your own ignorance.

Most people here would rather get on their soap boxes and rage about their simplistic solutions to illegal immigration than educate themselves to the insidious, underlying causes of illegal immigration and Washington's illegal immigration narrative.

The two major players in this duopoly parading as a democracy each have their role to play in Washington's immigration reality show.

One plays the good immigration cop, the other plays the bad.

Now the scene is set to put on the show for voters. Each side blames the other while voters remain ignorant to the fact that both "sides" work for the same "police department".

Their goal? Keep the bucks rolling in for their corporate cronies hiring illegal workers and their corporate cronies cashing in on billions of tax dollars in border security boodle. Meanwhile, we the people remain clueless.

As a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent, it has taken me years to understand this scam. I hope my learning will help you.

John M. Ackerman: A Voice Of Reason And Truthfulness From Mexico

In response:

John M. Ackerman:  A Voice Of Reason And Truthfulness From Mexico

Thank you to John M. Ackerman who continues to be a voice of reason and truthfulness from Mexico while  Obama and Washington "take the 5th" on their corrupt, narco-run, NAFTA conspiring, so-called "democracy" to the south.

Washington's insidious illegal immigration and drug war narratives continue to hide the American elite's profitization of both of these decade's-long money makers that now have become institutionalized as the American way of life

Americans need to wake up.  This isn't a result of Washington interfering in the Middle East;  this is unimaginable violence happening to our good neighbors to the south.  

And anyone who thinks that what is not happening in Mexico is "not our problem" is ignorantly naïve. 

You see folks Obama and Washington do not want you to know what is taking place in Mexico. 
Washington continually ignores the drug war and NAFTA nightmare they have created which simultaneously not only exacerbates illegal immigration but fattens their corporate cronies' labor and border security boodle pockets.
Most American posters' arguments about immigration ignore the underbelly of Washington's insidious system of profitized illegal immigration and never-ending drug war. As such they argue about - and rip each other apart about - that which is insignificant or meaningless to any real solutions to illegal immigration.

Yet Another Fanciful Puppet Election In America

Yet Another Fanciful Puppet Election In America

It is simply magical.  "New" hopes and dreams for a better world;  a better America.  Promises are made.  Revenge makes the prospective "winning" voters all giddy as "their" politician's time has come to shine in Washington.

The media will confirm the winning voters' reasons to be oh so joyful.   

Those controlling their puppet's (purse) strings put on quite a show for the voters.  Voters will then get all pumped up as they anticipate 2016. 

The winds of  imaginary "change" will prevail as the American election cycle inevitably repeats itself.

Despite all evidence to the contrary, Americans hang on to the hope of a better America.   

Despite all evidence to the contrary Americans hang on to the words they were taught;  "One Nation under God, indivisible - with liberty and justice for all".

Despite all evidence to the contrary Americans will caste their votes while truly believing that there is not only a real choice - but a real difference - between the moneyed elite running the show.

Despite all evidence to the contrary Americans will continue believing that they live in a democracy, not a kleptocracy.

Pogo, we have indeed met the enemy.

Divided And Conquered Americans Swirl Around The Political Toilet Bowl

In response:

Divided And Conquered Americans Swirl Around The Political Toilet Bowl

How many posters (responding to the article above) will carry their arguments against Washington, the US government or each other to their graves without witnessing any substantive, beneficial political or positive social changes in their lives?

Lots and lots of facts and positions that ultimately make little or no differences to the insidious path our country is going down.

Divided and conquered you swirl around the toilet bowl spewing the same insanities - over and over - until your last dying breaths. Using your ideological egos as life preservers while never realizing said egos are what is sucking you down.

As if slamming other posters and grabbing little ego boosts are the highlight of your days. Putting others down so you have a false, temporary sense of being in control in a world where you are not.

Washington's Goose Lays Drug, Labor And Enforcement-Boodle, Golden Eggs

In response:

Washington's Goose Lays Drug, Labor And Enforcement-Boodle, Golden Eggs

Despite US immigration laws, mega-US-industries such as those of agriculture, hotel-motel, food processing, and construction profit from the use of undocumented laborers.

I say this from my experience as a retired US Border Patrol/INS/ICE agent who worked in immigration enforcement for 26 years and studied related topics for another 10 years in retirement.

On the flip side of the illegal immigration-for-labor-profit side lies the billions of US tax dollars being hoarded for semi-effective border security.

Of course this scam has become oh so insidiously similar to Washington's 40+ year long failed Drug War.

One would not want to kill the goose that lays those golden drug, labor and enforcement boodle filled eggs now would one?

All of this back and forth and not one of you consider that our own government not only creates illegal immigration to ensure a never ending supply of cheap labor (for its crony corporations) but also to ensure billions of US tax dollars (for their ineffective border security cronies' pockets).
Consider our one trillion dollar, 40+ year long failed drug war and where the majority of drugs come from. Then consider where the majority of the undocumented come from. Then connect the dots.
We are being played like fools.
