My
disappointment with our current political and governmental
administration reached an all-time high this week. The reason? While
U.S. Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean are left to languish
in jail for actually doing their jobs, President Bush has opted to
pardon eight (count them ? eight) drug dealers. (Was this to ensure
that the drug dealers’ families and friends would have an even
“jollier” time this time of year than they would have without certain
“products”? One can only surmise.)

And
as continues to be the case, Agents Ramos and Compean were ignored ?
much the same way the building of a protective southern border security
fence is being substantively ignored by our government “leaders”;
leaders who are not only going against the wishes of U.S. citizens, but
appear to be hoping that “We the People” will ? at some point ? forget
about the border fence entirely. 

Hmmm? 

It
seems drug dealers are allowed, by our government, to infect our
society and way of life with their viruses ? even encouraged to do so
with these latest pardons ? while U.S.
citizens are punished for fighting them. Could this be the real reason
Compean and Ramos were prosecuted by U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton? Were
they (and are we) being sent the unambiguous dictate that drug dealers
must be allowed to ply their trade ? which includes crossing our
southern border to do so ? without any interference from local and federal law enforcement and any of the U.S. citizenry?  Is
this a warning “We the People” to “back off” or also face jail time?
Sure sounds like it. But apparently, this mandate applies to only a
certain class of drugs and their suppliers.

Our
government, via a U.S. Senate subcommittee, is on its way to taking
over control of Major League Baseball with one of its seemingly endless
investigations ? this time over steroid use.  So, per our government, steroid use by the players in baseball will now carry a prison sentence with the full weight of the U.S. government behind it. Note:
No Senate investigations are currently reported to be ongoing with
regard to other professional sports. Steroids are already banned.  But,
apparently, other highly addictive drugs ? which impact the general
population areas of the country ? are allowed and even supported.  And
again ? drug dealers are being pardoned while those attempting to stop
them are being jailed under increasingly trumped up charges based upon
seemingly false evidence or the suppression of said “evidence’s” lack of substantiation.  This is scary, folks.

There
are so many things wrong with these actions that it boggles the mind.
We now appear to have a government that is overtly fighting against the
people who elected its members to fight for them. With an increasingly
sickening certainty and inevitability, those whom we elect to political
office can’t seem to become elites quickly enough. These “elites” are
the ones who have ? or will soon have ? the means to protect themselves
from their own ill-conceived decisions?decisions that will allow this
cream-of-the-crop class to remain in their selective and superior
positions while the rest of us must now fight for our lives. While
these now privileged politicians pass legislation designed to better
themselves, their families and supporters, the rest of us are left to
fend for ourselves against said politicians who have now seized power
away from us. When criminals are let out of jail, those trying to stop
criminals are placed into or forced to remain in jail and members of
the U.S. Congress use their color of their authority and power to
advance their own political and personal agendas, “We the People” are
in tremendous peril. And so is our country. Either fight back against
them, or prepare yourselves to become a member of the great and
unwashed masses.

The time required to save the country may no longer be on our side.
