Drug Dealers Pardoned While Border Patrol Agents Remain in Prison
My disappointment with our current political and governmental administration reached an all-time high, today. The reason? While US 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 8 (count them—eight) drug dealers. Note: 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 as the building of a protective southern border security fence is being substantively ignored by our government “leaders”; leaders who are not only fighting against US citizens but, appear to be hoping that We-the-People will—at some point—forget about the border fence entirely. Hmmm. Drug dealers are now 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 US citizens are punished for fighting against them. Could this be the real reason Compean and Ramos were prosecuted by US 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 US citizenry? Is this a warning to 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 US 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 US government behind it. Note: No Senate investigations are currently reported to be ongoing with regards 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 US 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.
