B&S Republicans Just Can't Stop

Everyone's favorite what-me-worry? President has done it again, and you can be sure his gelding Congress will be there with your checkbook open. George the Lesser wants about $2 billion as the first payment in a throw-away plan to police thousands of miles of U.S. border.

The borrow-and-spend Republicans have no concept of the possible or affordable. Here is yet another case of their huge government with endless unsupported expenses and no matching income. The B&S crowd is simply drunk on stupidity and profligacy.

Let us pause a moment and ponder Nixon's War on Drugs. It likewise was another inane waste of money, military and other government workers, and our international good will. It also failed spectacularly after billions piddled and stolen. It also did not address the underlying issues and relied on a meaningless display akin to sweeping back the tide.

So Bush said that this emergency funding of 16% (1,000 of 6,000 new border guards) will help "fix the problem of illegal immigrants." Do not laugh in your President's face, please.

This funding is in addition to over $92 billion in extra emergency funding for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Among the hundreds of B&S Republicans in Washington, aren't there some who know the meaning of enough?
