Speaking of Irresponsibility & Shame: What About Billions Wasted on Illegal Aliens?
By John W. Lillpop
President Obama, already showing signs of physical and mental fatigue after just 10 days in office, excused himself from the Oval Office game of power Monopoly long enough to zing the same crooks and vultures most likely to benefit from the latest bail out scheme being crafted by his economic professors.
As reported in the Wall Street Journal, reference 1, in part:
"President Barack Obama stepped up his rhetorical attacks Thursday on the same banks his officials are planning to aid. Summoning reporters after a closed meeting with Mr. Geithner, Mr. Obama blasted earlier news that Wall Street had paid out $18.4 billion in bonuses, calling it 'the height of irresponsibility' and 'shameful.'
"There will be time for them to make profits, and there will be time for them to get bonuses," he said. "Now is not that time."
Wonder how many of those Wall Street thugs standing on the White House lawn with tin cups in their hands realize that those billions from Treasury come with the following socialist hook:
Wall Street surrenders its financial sovereignty and will engage in the obscene business of "making profits and getting bonuses" only when President Obama says it is "time" to do so?
Still, it is inspiring to learn that our newly installed president is interested in combating irresponsibility and shame. Lord knows there is an abundance of both throughout Washington, D.C., particularly among politicians with the D brand next to their names.
In fact, one really on the prowl for irresponsibility and shame would find a veritable gold mine in the Democrat position on illegal aliens.
Illegal aliens cost American taxpayers nearly $100 billion dollars every year for education, health care, welfare assistance and other public services to which they are not entitled.
Liberals constantly lament overcrowded classrooms, soaring health care costs, and other economic conditions that afflict the middle class. All of those problems are exacerbated by the presence of millions of invading criminals who have no legal or moral basis for being here.
Want to reduce school room class sizes,health care costs, and crime, ease state budget crises, and make the American Dream once again attainable by American citizens, Mr. President?
Then order Homeland Security and or the Defense Department to secure our borders with Mexico and begin the process of deporting the millions of invading criminals already here.
At a time when the American people are confronted by the worse economic crisis since the Great Depression, wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on illegal aliens is indeed "shameful and the height of irresponsibility!"
