A movie that is not a must see, but it's most definitely a must "read about". As is well known, Wollf loves his Country and its Laws and Protections. I am unashamedly proud of my citizenship in the Greatest country that has ever existed.
I am loyal to the office of the President. I am not, though, by any means, noncritical. I understand that any President is blamed unjustly for myriad troubles in the world that he is not reasonably capable of affecting.
He can affect the direction that our Country moves. He cannot, however effect a lot of those moves himself. He is not responsible for Global Warming, the Housing downturn, the death of Ms. Bhutto, et cetera that he is currently being blamed for. Anyone who espouses this "Blame Bush" vitriol simply doesn't get it.
He does, however affect Policy. I am not happy with our President's stance on illegal immigration. My perspective, from having lived in the beautiful southwest for most of my life is quite simple.
Secure the Friggin Border. That's it. Simple. Our system is wounded and we need to stanch the bleeding first and foremost. Do what it takes, Mr. President. You do have the power to order the National Guard to the Border.
With bullets this time. No, no....Not to shoot innocent Peons' who are simply and desperately searching a better life, but rather to enable the Guard to protect themselves and the Citizens along and above the Border.
I wrote a piece a bit ago which showed the ecological damage to the Deserts caused by this illegal migration HERE. I, like many Americans am concerned for the sake of the Security of our Nation.
Once the Border is secure, then mightier minds than mine can draw up Laws to give those illegally here more incentive to go home and fix their own country than to stay here. Punish the Employers, not the Employed. Denial of benefits other than life threatening emergency. Removal and, or incarceration of felons and gang members.
Wollf does not claim to know a whole heck of a lot about any one thing, but I sure know human nature. If it is uncomfortable, People go elsewhere.
Below, I've embedded the trailer for a movie that is stark, and graphic and disquietingly Real. People a lot like you and I are dying in the deserts at the hands of smugglers and drug dealers. It doesn't matter whether they are Citizens or Illegals.....their bodies litter the landscape.
These are dangerous times we live in Folkes. You don't have to see the movie, but you should see the trailer. I saw the movie. I didn't enjoy it. I didn't enjoy it at all.
Better mood next time? I pinky swear.
