The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
So, I just finished reading the political reality of the story of the two Joe’s in America – Joe Legal and Jose Illegal.
Most of you will anticipate what I am about to say, but I will say it anyhow.
Because we Americans are a compassionate people, for the past several decades during which our Presidents chose to leave our borders open, of course people came in illegally.
Most of them were searching for a better life. OK.
But, many, also, are criminals.
Consequently, we turned ourselves inside out to help the good illegals, so much so that Jose Illegal and his family began to receive and continue to receive many perks and opportunities that are not available to Joe Legal and his family.
This irony must stop because it has become overkill.
One example – Jose Illegal’s children are admitted to our universities often free of charge or with very low tuition while Joe Legal must pay full tuition for his children. He is being punished for being legal, and how fair is that?
When I say our compassion has become overkill – witness the marches and protests springing up from among many illegals, one march with a sign demanding free housing, free food, free education, free everything.
We Americans have spoiled the illegals. They now feel entitled to all the freebies, and are beginning to demand it like it is their right.
During the recent campaign for President, our First Lady Michele Obama called ours a mean country, despite the fact that she received a superb education, no doubt gratis, as probably did our President. No doubt that is also why he spends our money so easily. He does not know how hard it is to accumulate it, because according to his own resume he never had a real job.
Now, as we speak, the courageous Governor of Arizona wants to stop the enormous financial drain on her State from illegals pouring in and she is asking for proof of citizenship from people coming from the border to Arizona – a perfectly normal request.
So, now our President and federal government are appalled. They don’t want to hurt peoples’ feelings by having them being asked a logical question, and Obama has been threatening to sue Arizona for enforcing the same law which the federal government refuses to enforce.
This reaction from our President is irrational and crazy.
Also, only a reckless incompetent leader would continue to harp on new laws like Cap & Trade and want to further indebt us with another useless stimulus bill.
Mr. President, many of us are rapidly losing confidence in your ability to lead us.
