The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

The vast, unimaginable waste of the American taxpayer's money by every department of the Federal government is a disgrace, and if President Trump's policies are reducing that waste then I am all for it! That these policies are also having a salutary effect on the previously uncontrolled flow of illegal, uneducated, backward, disease ridden and in many cases criminal aliens across our borders is another wonderful byproduct of the President's actions.

I am immensely pleased by this sort of news, and it is a testament to the President's fortitude and tenaciousness that we are getting this sort of result, in spite of the concerted efforts of hundreds of thousands of deeply embedded anti-American activists throughout our federal government.

Crackdown on immigrants who use public benefits takes effect

Pastor Antonio Velasquez says that before the Trump administration announced a crackdown on immigrants using government social services, people lined up before sunrise outside a state office in a largely Latino Phoenix neighborhood to sign up for food stamps and Medicaid.

No more.

“You had to arrive at 3 in the morning, and it might take you until the end of the day,” he said, pointing behind the office in the Maryvale neighborhood to show how long the lines got.

But no one lined up one recent weekday morning, and there were just a handful of people inside.

It is fascinating that The Deep StateTM has become so pervasive that we require a "crackdown" to force the government drones to administer the laws and regulations of our country faithfully, instead of acting according to their personal political beliefs. It is insulting in the extreme to be told that it is in any way complicated to vet welfare applicants.

"Are you a citizen...yes or no?

"Yes? Okay, prove it."

"What? No. I don't speak Spanish. Speak English please."

"A passport or birth certificate is a good start."

"You don't have one?"

"Next!"
