"The Senate:'An Impenetrable Wall Between Itself And The American People' "

A Certain Slant of Light address the House of Representatives:

Ironic, isn’t it, that the United States Senate, which only begrudgingly passed an amendment to S-2611 to build just just 370 miles of security fencing along our 2,000+ miles’ porous southern border with Mexico, has shown no reluctance whatsoever in building an impenetrable wall between itself and the American people? And isn’t it altogether indicative of a president whose plummetingjob performance poll numbers underscore a sharp decline in credibility, that he plans to send National Guardsmen to the border for just a year and only to do road building, maintenance, and innocuous desk-jockey paper-pushing, for fear of upsetting the government of Mexico, all the while playing a shell gamewith $1.9 million billion in funding for hard assets for the U.S. Border Patrol and Coast Guard?

Read the whole thing.

    S'funny, but I'd a whole lot rather upset the government of Mexico than the citizens of the United States.

    Too bad our President and the Senate don't share that particular bias.
