Make a run from the border
Howzabout that? "Skeletor" Chertoff is so goldanged determined to keep people from sneaking across our designer borders and thus BREAKING OUR LAWS that he's, um, going to BREAK OUR LAWS to do it:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Department of Homeland Security will bypass environmental and land-management laws to build hundreds of miles of border fence between the United States and Mexico, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Tuesday.
"Criminal activity at the border does not stop for endless debate or protracted litigation," Chertoff said.
Well, I see Mr. Chertoff has a healthy contempt for the democratic process, as with so many others in the Bush regime. After all, in the midst of a national crisis to defend our American values, why fret about our American values?
Chertoff cited a congressional requirement that 361 miles of fence be completed by the end of the year. He also pointed out that Congress had given him the authority to bypass laws.
Aw, well, see, it's the fault of Congress! They passed a requirement, after all! And hell, they GAVE him the ability to piss all over the law, so why not use it?
I mean (and I don't want to give these yahoos any ideas) but why the hell not go the whole route - defoliate the entire Southern border, salt the land like Carthage, strew it with landmines and release rabid poodles to patrol it? Or just use those happy nukes we're letting go to waste to dig a giant moat? Radiation? Pshaw, the fallout would just help slow 'em down!
It's what Loud Obbs and the Paulistas would want, after all.
