We the People

I hear complaints about illegal immigrants, and the BP oil spill on a regular basis. The government and the oil companies are usually blamed. Yes, there is enough guilt to spread around, but in the end who is really to blame? We the people.

We the people hire the illegal immigrants to work for low wages and no benefits, while we complain about illegals taking all the jobs. If we did not hire them, they would not come. If we demanded that employers who hire illegals be prosecuted, we would be run out of town on a rail. Politicians rave to the voters about the evils of illegal immigration, while carefully avoiding the real issue.

We the people have an insatiable appetite for petroleum products. We demand large, gasoline hogging vehicles and refuse to convert to alternative forms of energy. We depend upon foreign oil from countries hostile to us, while we try to escape their clutches by resorting to drilling in deep water and the pristine natural areas of our country. We continue to elect politicians, who are in the back pockets of the oil companies, and when there is a tragedy, such as the one in the Gulf of Mexico, we blame the oil company and the government.

As Pogo said, "We have met the enemy, and he is us."

Government-Approved Illegals !

Speaking of illegals, the government hasn't built the fence high enough to keep out the un-American criminals who want to take away our freedoms.
Yes, the government hasn't built the White House fence high enough to keep out the un-American criminals who somehow got into the White House and who are now working hard to take away the religious, social, and economic freedoms of true American patriots!
Here are two slogans that Obama would rather not think about: "Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms - and legs and ears and eyes, etc.!" and "Unborn babies should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!"
If Obama should ever happen to Google "Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right," do you think he would feel guilty merely walking in the hallowed halls of that House where true Americans walked?
Is it safe to assume that Mecca Wafers are Obama's favorite candy? And is barack-coli a vegetable or a disease?

(Neither Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi nor any other DemocRAT approved of this message!)

Anonymous, what does your irrational rant have to do with the post?

GMM, I had same thought about the coward-anon rant, but then cowards hide behind white hoods too and rant on and on---pitiful people. Yes, more pitiful people keep buying oil and petro products, while wanting someone to blame for the mess in the Gulf. Build it, they will come. Drill baby drill and if someone of color says he thinks there is a problem with the equipment, well, just ignore him---what does HE know? Might cost money to stop and fix any little problem, after all. Yes, we the people continue to attack the integrity of our earth. Funny we keep doing that, since we only have. (And people like anon just think that BP black worker is a Muslim, so why trust the word of a terrorist?) UGH

I agree totally. We the people have to accept our share of the blame for things.
