I think it's interesting that, to the best of my knowledge, during the Obama presidency, about 300,000 Mexicans were forcibly repatriated for being in the USA illegally.
I am all in favor of enforcing the borders and our immigration laws, but another statistic recently startled me.
I don't think that a single person directly responsible for the crash of the economy in 2008 has been brought to justice. There are probably 100 people who should be doing the perp walk and if the Administration was smart, it would have asked Rudy Guiliani to be chief investigator of the sub-prime mes.
But I suppose he makes too much money now to be a public servant anymore; the anger of bothe the Occupy Movement and the Tea Party met in a Venn diagram, only from different perspectives.
Tea Partiers are angry at Big Government wasting our money; I agree. Occupy people are angry that corporartions control the government, now that they are deemed to be people and that money is speech. So they now control the public debate about everything from climate change to defense policy.
In the old days when the peasants got fed up with the misdoings of bankers, they took to the streets and administered their own kind of justice....Are we now so comfortably numb that we just come home from work, pop open a can of beer (owned by a non-US company, most likely) and settle in to watch Fox, MSNBC, Kardashians – and don't care?
I believe in the Rule of Law but in previous times, people saw things differently, as described here. Where are the people today?
