Who Said It?

There is no excuse not to control the border, she said. "I’m a liberal with a capital ‘L’," she said, "but I’m sick of it."

Y'ain't gonna believe you actually agree with this person on a political issue.

As has been noted until the point of tedium, there is a real desire by the American public to control the borders and reduce illegal immigration, and this is popular among many Democrats as well as Republicans.

But the elites in both parties, vying for the in-play (kinda) Hispanic vote, simply refuse to accede to the wishes of the majority.

Illegal Hispanic immigrants are certainly not bad people. (Well, except for the vicious gangsters and narcoterrorists that operate here illegally.) No one can blame them morally or otherwise for seeking to make good money in a country where it is, despite what Michael Moore might say, still relatively easy to make a living if you're willing to work.

But many Americans are tired of picking up the costs of illegal workers who do not actually pay most taxes (how many illegal migrant fruit-pickers are actually paid above the table?) except for sales taxes, which we all pay, on top of every other tax.

This is one of those necessary political discussions that you Simply Are Not Permitted to Discuss in polite, or political, company. And that's a type of political dysfunction, because it will be talked about eventually, and perhaps in less-than-polite terms, when a majority of the public grows weary of seeing their legitimate political wishes ignored by their supposed representatives in government.

But Of Course She Does, Darling Update: See-Dubya thinks he knows why Maxine Waters opposes illegal immigration.

How else can the US Government run crack into black neighborhoods without a steady flow of Hispanic patsies?
