Never Outsource National Security

You know things are turning apocalyptic when I agree with anything that carpet bagging, camera hogging, two-faced senatorial bitch from New York says (or is she from Illinois? Maybe Arkansas? I’m so confused). This plan of the Bush Administration to allow a foreign country to take over our ports is completely absurd.

If an item can be made cheaper elsewhere, then it is better to have that item made there. That’s called outsourcing. Shut up before you get tangential about outsourced jobs. Each of you shops at Wal-Mart. National security is not a tangible item that can be manufactured. National security is not something that can be outsourced.

Too many men and women have died wearing our nation’s uniform over the past 230 years to protect our national security. Nearly 3000 innocent people died that god-awful September morning at that hands of people dedicated to destroying our nation. If we allow this to happen, we are basically spitting on those paid the ultimate price.

McFarland makes a valid point when he makes the argument that we don’t have the luxury of waiting until there’s an ash cloud over New York City again. Things changed on 9/11. Had you told me on September 10, 2001 that 19 sub-human hijackers would take over 4 airplanes and run them into buildings, I’d called you crazy. Crazy was redefined on 9/11. Nothing is out of the realm of possibility anymore. People hate Americans and will do anything to hurt us.

The President is on the wrong side of this argument. I think he knows it and that’s why he’s threatening the veto and the White House is backpedaling. A veto is his Constitutional prerogative (God bless our Founding Fathers). It will be overridden. Speaker Hastert is against him. Senate Majority Leader Frist is against him. Governor Pataki is against him. Everyone should be against this lame-brained idea.

In other news: Bombers are now 25-1. B-PC in the Regional title game on Friday then it’s onward. Hopefully, MIG doesn’t coincide with the state title game. I’ll have to go to Peoria if it does!!

Well, Jim, I do have to say that I do not shop at Wal-Mart and I disagree with outsourcing. Taking away jobs from Americans so they can buy cheaper goods is a bit of a Catch-22 when they no longer have jobs to pay for the goods. Also, the White House plan would not put security into the hands of the UAE company, but ownership of the port itself. Not that I agree with it. I think that NO FOREIGN COUNTRY should own US ports, but Congress is making this situation worse by simply putting it on Arabs and National Security when they should be crying out that very simply, we should retain ownership of our own ports-especially considering these are the major gateways.

Don't make me vomit. That "woman" is butt ugly. Monica wasn't much to look at either, but Bill took a step up with that cow.

I shop at Wal-Mart I look for the cheapest price and I do feel though that we are shipping our jobs off to other places to make things cheaper. This is the way of peace through almighty dollar everyone likes it, everyone wants it. This company who is located in the middle-east is one of our deepest friendships in that region, not like our relationship with Saudi-Arabia, but the type we have with Qatar. To keep the kind of friends we want, we must not treat them like criminals. I am not saying we should not worry about our ports, we should no matter if it is owned by an American company or a middle-east. Though I do like watching Lou Dobbs… LOL.
