Political Fallout from the Border Crisis

"The national media may get tired of stories about young illegals crossing the border in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. But as these youngsters are sent to places as distant as Chicago and Lynn, Mass., other troublesome stories are likely to emerge, on local newscasts (which are often starved for news) if not on Obama-protective mainstream media. ...
Oldtimers may remember that the influx of Mariel refugees from Cuba hurt Jimmy Carter in the 1980 election. Carter failed to carry Florida, where many refugees were housed, and Arkansas, where many were sent to Fort Chaffee. Also defeated that year were some incumbent Democrats who hadn't seemed to be in great trouble: U.S. Sen. Richard Stone of Florida and a young governor of Arkansas named Bill Clinton. Most current voters were not alive in 1980 or have forgotten the political fallouts from the Mariel influx. I'm sure Bill Clinton hasn't. I suspect that, if asked, he might have some advice for Democrats in states to which the underage illegals are being sent." — Michael Barone, Washington Examiner


  1. Dammit we are being invaded. I have a solution for the politicians in this country. Has to do with diameters and weights measured in grains.

  2. I have a proposal.

    Let's assume that it is going to be IMPOSSIBLE to get rid of the brown invaders from down below even after it's stopped.

    Fine. I don't support amnesty in any way. We can figure out the details when a conservative is in the white house and conservatives control congress.

    The latinos, as a group, are wonderful God fearing people. We can have worse people here.

    The PROBLEM is, there are a lot of "others" coming across too. MS-13, Cartel, Terrorists.

    I propose THIS:

    The next president implements nation-wide reciprocity. That means ANYONE who has a concealed carry permit can carry a pistol in any other state who has concealed carry permits.

    Tax deductions for the purchase of a firearm. Or some sort of incentive. No sales tax on guns and ammo. Gun training courses for everyone for free. A national campaign encouraging people to stay armed all the time.

    Get the guns in the hands of actual US citizens.

    Then - OPEN SEASON. See an MS-13 banger? Boom. See a cartel thug? Boom. See a terrorist? Boom.

    If the populace is heavily armed and there is an official national effort to clean house and remove the scum that has, is and will be coming across that border until it is fixed, they will have to look over their wet shoulders until the day they die.
