A Letter From Your Uncle Sam

July 29, 2010

Dear American,

I’m writing to just remind you to please, STAY OUT OF MY BUSINESS!  I know, during WWII you got sick and tired of hearing me say: “I Want You!”  Well, now I’m saying: I don’t want you and I don’t need you!

No doubt you’ve heard of my recent legal victory in limiting significant portions of Arizona’s Immigration Law (SB1070) from taking effect.

I have heard that some – actually the vast majority of you – are not happy with the way I’ve been doing my job.  I just want to remind you, as the Courts have, that this is soley MY job and NOT yours, so butt-out.  I do not need your help, nor do I want it!

I can understand why you were disappointed in me when I failed to stop repeated felon and illegal immigrant, Edwin Ramos, from leaving Danielle Bologna a widow in San Francisco on June 22, 2008.  How was I to know that he was going to gun down her two sons; Matthew (16) and Michael (20) and then her beloved husband, Anthony, right in front of her, as they returned from a family picnic?  Sorry about that.  (Anthony Bologna)

Sure, you were upset with me when I failed to protect your neighbor and fellow citizen, Robert Krentz, and his loyal dog from being brutally massacred by Mexican drug runners on their Arizona ranch on March 28, 2010.  I actually felt kind of bad about that one myself, as rancher Krentz frequently left water and food out on his own property to relieve fatigued illegal aliens on their trek across the desert.  And he and his dog end up with bullets in their heads… Opps, sorry again.  (Robert Krentz)

Yep, the Media sure was on my case over the above two stories, but maybe you’ve even heard about some of these too:

Over 25% of today’s federal prison population are illegal aliens. In some areas of the country, 12% of felonies, 25% of burglaries and 34% of thefts are committed by illegal aliens.

  • In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.
  • There are currently over 400,000 unaccounted for illegal alien criminals with outstanding deportation orders. At least one fourth of these are hard core criminals.
  • 80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets.
  • In 1980, our Federal and state facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens but at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in U.S. correctional facilities at a cost of about $6.8 billion per year.
  • At least 4.5 million pounds of cocaine with a street value of at least $72 billion is smuggled across the southern border every year.
  • 56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.
  • Illegal aliens charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. 90% had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, 50% had been arrested for violent or drug-related felonies.
  • Illegal aliens commit between 700,000 to 1,289,000 crimes per year.
  • Illegal aliens commit at least 2,158 murders each year – a number that represents three times greater participation than their proportion of the population.
  • Illegal alien sexual predators commit an estimated 130,909 sexual crimes each year.
  • There may be as many as 240,000 illegal alien sex offenders circulating throughout America.
  • Nearly 63% of illegal alien sex offenders had been deported on another offense prior to committing the sex crime.
  • In Operation Predator, ICE arrested and deported 6,085 illegal alien pedophiles.
  • The very brutal MS-13 gang has over 15,000 members and associates in at least 115 different gangs in 33 states.
  • The overall financial impact of illegal alien crimes is estimated at between $14.4 and $81 billion or more per year. Factor in the crime as a result of the cocaine and other drugs being smuggled in and the number may reach $150 billion per year.  (Source)

Seriously, can you believe how much hype there has been about me not doing my job?  After all, the Constitution does say that this is MY JOB, and to repeat – I DO NOT NEED AND I DO NOT WANT YOU OR YOUR STATE STICKING YOUR NOSE INTO MY BUSINESS… I HAVE IT ALL UNDER CONTOL!

Sincerely,

Your Uncle Sam

The Sherrod Charade

July 24, 2010

Surely, the Shirley Sherrod charade is one of the more comical news stories of the year.

The irony, of course, is that as a mid-level bureaucrat this story has virtually nothing to do with Ms. Sherrod.  It has everything to do with the breath-taking collapse of the institution once known as the “Main Stream Media.”  The sequence of events surrounding this story are both bizarre and extremely comical.  A single independent blogger posts an entry on his own website, biggovernment.com, showing an obscure bureaucrat that few Americans have ever heard of making controversial – and as it turned out – misrepresented racially charged comments.  Even before this rather insignificant “story” moves off the pages of the independent blog site it sends shock waves through the entire Obama Administration, the NAACP, and the entire Fourth Estate.  In a full-blown panic, the White House leans on Agriculture Secretary, Tom Vilsack to force Sherrod to resign on the spot, and I do mean quite literally, on the spot, as in forcing her to pull off the road as she was driving home, making her return to her office and resign with no other due process.  Picking up on the Obama Administration’s panicked paranoia, the NAACP and Media fall into lock-step damage control mode, falsely condemning Sherrod and doing what they can to insulate the White House from the perceived racist remarks of Sherrod.  It was the combined hysteria of the White House, the NAACP and the Media that forced this unwelcomed story off an innocuous website and into headline news.  So, along with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, Shirley Sherrod becomes just another expendable liability that the Obama Administration is willing to simply throw under the bus.

The real story here is not about Sherrod, or even the Obama Administration, it is about the Media.  One must ask how is it possible that a single independent blog resulted in such abject chaos?  The answer could not be clearer: the “Main Stream Media” simply has no credibility.  The fact, as aptly demonstrated by the Sherrod charade, is that the Obama Administration, and the “Main Stream Media” itself has less persuasion than independent news sources, even a blog.  Of course, the once respected and trusted “Main Stream Media” has no one to blame but themselves.  Years of bias, abuse and outright corruption have resulted in these self-inflicted mortal wounds.  The Sherrod charade is just the latest reminder of this reality.  If you are looking for further confirmation, look no further than the most recent Nielsen news ratings.  Fox News Channel (FNC) consistently has more prime time viewers than CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and HLN COMBINED. http://tvbythenumbers.com/category/ratings/cable-news
