One Reporter's Opinion @ Commonsense Immigration Policy

Violence against one of our nations is truly against all of our nations. Our president received a serious warning February 17 in testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. On that occasion, CIA Director Porter Goss, FBI Director Robert Mueller and Admiral James Loy, deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, all warned that al-Qaida and other terrorist organizations would use our poorly guarded porous border with Mexico to launch another lethal attack. Meanwhile, Osama bin Laden is enlisting Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, his top operative in Iraq, to plan attacks.

Another item to be discussed will be that Martin decided not to take part in a continental missile defense shield, which is a snub to Bush. The missile defense is a system designed to shoot down ballistic missiles from such adversaries as North Korea. However, our president will go to the trilateral meeting with his plate full.

Bush obsessively pushes for CAFTA, an enlargement of the ill-fated NAFTA, the GAT and the WTO. The president is determined to press for a plan that would extend amnesty to 500,000 Mexican agricultural workers in the United States. His totalization agreement plan extending Social Security benefits to Mexican workers and his determination to reform Social Security at the same time, all but ignoring our own No. 1 crisis, Medicare - 50 million Americans still struggling without health protection - seem to this reporter as if the president has forgotten his real priorities.

We receive letters from our audience, Mr. President. One such listener over the past weekend sent us a thought-provoking piece, in the form of an obituary, making its rounds on the Internet. May I share it with you?

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Mr. Common Sense.

Mr. Sense has been with us for many years – no one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such value lessons as:

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies – don't spend more than you earn, reliable parenting strategies, adults, not kids, are in charge.

Common Sense's health began to rapidly deteriorate when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place:

Mr. Sense declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a bit of it on her lap and was awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by two stepbrothers, My Rights and I'm a Whiner.

Not many attended his funeral, so few realized that he was gone. But if you still remember Common Sense, pass this on to your friends. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

As long as we're talking common sense, how about considering what would happen if we gave Mexico a taste of its own medicine.

Try this sometime: Enter Mexico illegally. Never mind immigration quotas, visas, international law or any of that nonsense. Once in Mexico, demand that the local government provide free medical care for you and your entire family. Demand bilingual nurses and doctors. Demand free bilingual local government forms, bulletins, etc.

Procreate abundantly! Deflect any criticism of allegedly irresponsible reproductive behavior with "It's a cultural United States thing! You wouldn't understand it, pal!"

Keep your American identity strong; fly Old Glory from your rooftop. Proudly display it in your front window or on the car bumper. Speak only English at home and in public and insist your kids do likewise. Demand classes on American culture in the Mexican school system. Demand a local Mexican driver's license.

This will afford other legal rights and will go far to legitimize your unauthorized, illegal presence in Mexico. Insist that local Mexican law enforcement teach English to all of the officers.

Good luck, my friend. You'll either be demanding for the rest of time or you'll soon be dead. It will never happen. It will not happen in Mexico or any other country in the world except right here in the good old USA – in the land of the naive. Try it sometime.
