I was born and raised in the United States, but sometimes wonder if I am still living in the same country.
We are apparently turning our country over to illegal immigrants, unequally enforcing our laws and leaving ourselves wide open to terrorism.
Almost all the illegals coming across our southern border are Catholics, and are encouraged by their religion to have large families. If we add an estimated 11 to 12 million prolific breeders to our existing population, it probably won't take more than a couple generations to outnumber the present citizens.
The unequal enforcement of our laws is spawning a population of scofflaws that won't live within our laws and established rules, will not support law enforcement and is generating a growing costly prison population.
Furthermore, our laws need a major revision to enhance crime prevention versus punishment for crimes committed. How do you punish an individual after he blows up himself along with 50 to 100 other people? You can't take away his 30 virgins when/if he gets to his heaven, now can we?
As for protesting our southern border, we could probably get the plans for the old Cold War East German fence. The wire, towers with search lights and machine guns, patrols with dogs and well-laid land mine fields were very effective. It will likely never happen though, because the ACLU and all the other left wing, liberal, pinko, sob sisters will protect it on humanitarian grounds.
What will happen when some well-trained fanatic Osama, Castro or other agents carry in small bombs that contain radioactive cobalt with a 25,000 year half-life and set it off in a place like Los Angeles or Phoenix or New York?
It sickens me that I worked 36 years for this country and have to watch the direction it's headed. Guess it's time grouchy old geezers like me should sit back, keep the bores clean and the powder dry. I'm too old to fire and attack, but I can still fire and fall back, or down, as the case may be.
