“Coo coo” thinking, but many don’t notice?


John Stossel is a good guy, overall, it seems, generally thoughtful, apparently…  But yesterday evening he seemed to say that if the U.S. government stopped spending money on border security issues, and simply increased the yearly number of legally permissable immigrants who want to enter the United States, there would be no illegal immigration problems…  Huh?… 

Further, that if cocaine, methamphetamines and marijuana were legalized in this country, there would be no drug problems in America from imported drugs… And, that then, the government could concentrate on spending its money rehabilitating the addicted… Huh? Huh?… 

Homeland Secretary Napolitano has indicated that because the border between the U.S and Mexico extends for 1,600 miles, and in many places is in desolate places, it is impossible to secure every mile of it, so that it will remain porous, at best… 

On another side of the world, the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan is approximately 1,610 miles long over some quite inhospitable terrain, but, a major part of the Obama Administration’s policy in that portion of the world seems to be to press the Pakistanis to seal the border between them and Afghanistan, thereby preventing Al Qaeda and the Taliban from encroaching from that side into Afghanistan  and causing chaos…  Huh?…

There appears to  be a disconnect from reality by some public figures and decision makers…  To eliminate all illegal immigration, let them all legally in, creating an Open Border for the whole world to enter!… To win the war on drugs, legalize drugs and declare victory!…  Don’t secure the border with Mexico because supposedly it is  impossible to do so, but insist Pakistan secure its border with Afghanistan because doing that is not impossible!… Huh? Huh?  Huh?…

Unilaterally, pass a monstrous healthcare law that greatly increases the deficit, then lament and press that America must pull together to raise taxes to cut the horrendous deficit that just seems to have arisen!

Hopefully, what next will NOT follow is that regardless of the situation on the ground, the Obama Administration will simply declare victory in Afghanistan, pat itself on the back and come home victorious?…  That would be “coo coo” thinking personified…

  1. It is a lost cause to try to make any common sense out of the actions of the people supposedly running this country – unless you simply view it through the prism of what will benefit them either personally or advance their political agenda, or keep them in office forever – come to think of it, it all ties together, eh?

  2. It is amazing what a puzzle some people come up with. Does not hold water but to them it does, I guess. Make ihte borders open to everyone and there will be no more problems?What they don’t know is that the problems with so many people here will grow.
