Vicente Fox’s lapdog is,Ã‚Â ofÃ‚Â course, now Felipe Calderon’s lapdog.Ã‚Â You know the Republic’s in for hard times defending its sovreignty when discord breaks out between the White House and Teddy Kennedy, because Kennedy’s proposed legislation is too tough on illegals…
I think its time for a little plain talk to the leaders of Mexico. Something like:
hey guys, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re our friends and neighbors and we love you but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s time you had a little dose of reality. A sovereign nation loses that status if it cannot secure its own borders and we are going to do whatever is necessary to do so, although our policies wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be as harsh as yours are along your southern border. And criticizing the U.S. for alternately doing too much and too little to stop your illegal activities is not going to set too well with Americans of good will who are trying to figure a way out of the mess that your and our open borders policy has already created.My friends, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s also time for a little introspection. Since we all agree that improving MexicoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s economy will help with the illegal-immigration problem, you might want to consider your own left-of -center policies. For example, nationalized industries are not known for enhancing economic growth. Just a thought. But hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s something even more to the point that you might want to think about: What does it say about the leadership of a country when that countryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s economy and politics are dependent upon the exportation of its own citizens?
Mexico is phenomenally wealthy in natural resources–at least as wealthy per capita as the U.S., and perhaps even more so. So why is it still an “emerging country”? Quite simply because of the4 greedy ricos who run the place. It’s time we stopped playing Daddy Warbucks for the ricos who run Mexico and practice a little “tough love” by letting them know, “No more free lunch, bubbas. It’s time you stopped sitting on that gold mine and started really working it.”
But that’s not a message you’ll hear from the tax (everyone but our class) and spend (on everyone except those who produce) politicians *spit* or from Vicente Fox’s lapdog now that he’s found a new master.
