I paid for my own god damned retirement, thank you very much.

OOooh, someone is in a foul mood.

If you happen to be in that 3% (+or-) of politicians who are NOT actively on the take, then with all sincerity possible, you have my apology.

Beyond that, my statement stands.

Politicians all across the country have sold themselves at bargain basement prices and will do everything within their powers to guarantee the cash keeps flowing. If that means shipping an asset like Mr. Chapman south of the border where he can be treated worse than his nickname, whats one American citizen more or less if it keeps everyone friends and keeps the retirement well funded?

I don't happen to believe that 97% of the politicans in Washington, D. C. are on the take, although I'm not opposed to the idea that some of them are. I will admit that their votes cast an ominous cloud over their actions. I don't happen to think that the retirements of our elected officials in Washington are as dependent on Mexico's good will as you do. Beyond that, you and I probably agree on a lot more than we disagree.

Your post seemed to imply that "our" retirements depend on the flow of illegal aliens across our borders and I stridently object to that.

Who pays the retirements of our elected officials? You and I do. Are they pandering to us? Hell no. Who pays our retirements? Well, in some quarters it's becoming accepted that the Mexicans are and we better be careful. I'm not buying that for a second. That's why I responded as I did.
