Something’s gotta eventually give, folks, because I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to accept beheadings as a nightly news item on my local newscasts. Don’t believe that can happen? Keep your head in the sand then. And don’t think it will stop with illegal Mexicans. Do yourself a favor and look up the acronym “OTMs.” Yeah… they’re coming, too.
Like this is news we need? Actually now that I think about it, those with their head still firmly planted up their backsides do need to see things like this report by Griff Jenkins, reporting for On the Record.
Just another reason to seal the border with Mexico.
I know this is a week or so old, but for those of you who have not seen it, I would categorieze this as “must-see” video. This is from the Hispanic Leadership Network Conference in Miami Florida on January 27th. Marco Rubio is one of those Freshmen Republicans in Washington, but his star shines bright on the horizon. I expect many good things from this man in the future, and there couldn’t be a more important time in America’s history for people of Rubio’s character to become involved in politics to help right this ship.
…when the choices that are put before us today are dangerous ones, because if we choose this path of pitting people against each other, if we buy into this notion that our economy really can’t grow fast enough for all of us to prosper so we’re going to have to somehow empower government to distribute the wealth of this country among us, we’ve chosen to become like everybody else. We’ve chosen to become like the countries that your parents and grandparents came here to get away from. And that’s a powerful message. And that’s the message that we need to deliver. And that’s the message we need to work on delivering. It’s a winning message, but it’s a difficult message to get to because the gateway issue of immigration stands in the minds of so many people who we live next to and love.
It seems some rookies were on the scene of the apprehension, and they thought Agent Diaz might have roughed up the perp a bit too much. So now, Agent Diaz is sitting in prison, in solitary confinment for two years. I will not say much more about this case, except to speculate that there might be some rookie agents who don’t make it out of their training phase. P.C., indeed. This is inexcusable and just follows along in the footsteps of Agents Ramos and Campeon, to name only a few.
Hey, Mr. Perry…are you listening to this? You better get on this if you want to be on the right side of this situation.
