alligators and piranhas might just slow 'em up at the border

Would fully stocking the Rio Grande river (along the USA and Mexico boarder) with Alligators and Piranhas help stop the tide of illegal aliens crossing? Just a question...

... it might slow them down a bit... ya think?

In Texas today, president McSmarty-pants, sir golfs-a-lot, catering to the Mexicans, the all-knowing campaigner-in-chief spoke to an El Paso audience: "In search of Hispanic votes and an immigration overhaul, President Barack Obama on Tuesday stood at the U.S.-Mexico border for the first time since winning the White House and declared it more secure than ever. He mocked Republican lawmakers for blocking immigration over border security alone, saying they won’t be happy until they get a moat with alligators along the border." (from Gateway Pundit)  Well the Rio Grande is pretty long... I don't think we need an actual moat, do you?

From Yahoo story "Obama mocks Republican position on immigration": "The president made his pitch in a state he lost by more than 10 percentage points in 2008 and is unlikely to pick up in 2012. But Hispanic voters are critical to the president's re-election. Latinos accounted for more than 7 percent of voters in the 2008 presidential election, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, and their numbers are greater in certain swing states like Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado and Florida.

The trip had a more overtly political component, too: From El Paso the president headed to the relatively liberal bastion of Austin to raise money for the Democratic National Committee at two events Tuesday night.

The president wasn't able to get immigration legislation through Congress last year that would have provided a route to legal status for college students and others who were brought to the country as children. The so-called DREAM Act passed the House, then controlled by Democrats, but was blocked by Senate Republicans.

The Senate is now even more heavily Republican, and Republicans control the House. That means immigration reform can't happen unless they cooperate. Nonetheless, Senate Democrats plan to reintroduce the DREAM Act on Wednesday, with their counterparts in the House following suit. Given Republican opposition the bills likely won't get far, but Obama will try to make certain voters know who to blame."  The Yahoo story has some GREAT comments on it... mostly from pissed off Americans... Here is just a sampling from over 46,000 comments (think this topic riles people up?  oh... just perhaps!):

"Reform isn't necessary - enforcing our existing laws is."

"We have really hit rock bottom in this country....When did we start rewarded illegal activity? Where is the Dream for us doing the right thing?"

"We do not need new laws, we need our government to enforce the laws we have on the books now."
"The immigration system isn't broken. It just isn't being enforced."
"With this short press release, I think Obama is cooking up yet another sneak attack on the American people. As the release says, he plans to discuss the importance of fixing the nation's "broken immigration system". Translation: He's going to let all the illegals in, force us taxpayers to fund their education, housing and care so he can secure another 15 million votes. What a POS!"

  1. This is such a great post that I just have to share it at the A-C page!

  2. hi Zilla, glad you liked this post... I see a lot of chit chat on various sites about the moat & alligator idea... did O think he was funny trying to pander to illegals in Texas? He ain't funny, not funny at all... (see AZ Gov Brewer's new video on that!)...
