Close the border with Mexico now!

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

It is probably too late to stop a world wide influenza pandemic, but the Obama Administration sure isn't helping matters any. For our own protection, we need to close the Mexican border now. Even if such a tactic saves just one life, it will be well worth it.

So why won't they close the border? The answer is obvious. It would not be the politically correct thing to do. And Obama doesn't want to do anything to offend Mexicans since he is counting on the votes of those who can legally (or illegally for that matter, lol) vote in the upcoming elections. But by having that attitude he is risking American lives. And that is unconscionable. Close the border now, and if some people don't like it that's just too bad. American lives are more important than either hurt feelings or Obama's political agenda.

Every hour, we get more grim news about this potential pandemic. The amount of confirmed cases world wide continues to escalate. More confirmed cases are being reported from almost every continent. And the scary part is that this virus is acting a lot like the virus that caused the last great pandemic in 1916. Most deaths in Mexico have been from otherwise healthy people in the prime of life. And that's the way it was in 1916 as well.

This adds all the more urgency to the present situation. Most other nations are taking this seriously. But here in the USA we are taking a very low key approach, and that is a big mistake. If this blows up in Obama's face, people will no longer remember how Bush botched the Hurricane Katrina disaster. Instead, people will remember how Obama through his failure to act decisively allowed this epidemic to spiral out of control. If and when that happens, Obama will instantly become political dead meat.

As a partisan I might think that such a scenario would be a good thing since I oppose almost everything that Obama is trying to do. But we just have too many problems such as terrorism right now that need urgent attention. And for the important issues to be addressed we need an effective government. So I am going to bite my tongue and continue to hope that Obama finally realizes the urgency of this situation and throws political correctness out the window so that he can do what needs to be done. But don't hold your breath on that one. :-)

Folks, things are getting bad much more quickly than I had thought they would. I thought that it would at least take Obama a year or two to really mess things up, but it seems to be happening right now. We are in a real pickle and Obama is just making it worse day by day.

The Mexican border got nothing to do with the Swine flu. We are not sure where it started and this is no time to find someone or country to blame. Let find a way to stop the damn bug.
