An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, leaving the funeral of a murdered Border Patrol agent Wednesday, scolded a reporter for asking her to address the victim’s family’s concerns that not enough is being done to secure the southern border.
The family of agent Brian Terry had complained that Napolitano had offered them “empty words” when she called to express her condolences. Terry’s father, Kent Terry, in an interview with ABC affiliate KGUN, said he told Napolitano to “wake your man up in the White House,” to which she replied that he’s done more in two years than any president.
Really? I don’t know, but it appears to me he’s done about the same as Bush to secure our borders, and stop the flow of illegals into our country. In other words….not a damn thing!
After being told the concerns came from his father, mother and stepmother, she continued: “Listen, we are here today, the commissioner is here today, the chief of the Border Patrol is here today and we are here and his comrades are here with the family, who said other things to me by the way, so I really don’t think it appropriate for the media to try to pick this as a fight,” she said. “This is a moment to remember a fallen agent.”
While this may be true, there are way too many unanswered questions, and I can only applaud the reporter for actually doing the job he/she was hired to do….and that is get answers! However, with this administration, answers to darn near anything, are either so twisted around, no one has a clue what the blazes they are talking about, or totally blown off. Since Nappy is part of the administration, head of the so called Homeland Security (which isn’t), it’s quite appropriate to attempt to get answers, no matter what! But good luck with that!
Under this administration, the borders have become even more porous, the liberties of legal citizens have been diminished, and the rights of criminals and terrorists have been increased. Does anyone else see this as a tad bassackwards? How many more will be murdered because the lackadaisical approach to REAL security? All we get from these people are empty words….promises that are not kept…..lies…..and an agenda that is destroying our nation.
I don’t know about you, but I, for one, am totally, and completely fed up! This is not the country I was born and raised in, and it’s not a ‘change’ for the better!
Instead of a sign like this, facing north……
……. there should be a sign facing south, stating “Any and ALL criminals (illegal invaders) seen sneaking across the border will be shot, on sight, with extreme prejudice!” signed by the legals citizens of the United States of America.
