By any measure America would be seen as clinically insane by an alien observer arriving on earth. The insanity is marbled in at all levels of society starting from the highest levels of government to the dishwasher in a small town hotel. But the real problem is that about a third of our population is afflicted beyond redemption, and another third doesn’t really know or care what is happening around them.
The next step in granting de facto amnesty and immunity from deportation to illegal aliens is the new vote-accumulating Obama administration order that gives certain foreign nationals a pass just because they are related to an ex-GI. The latest reported ‘heart warming’ case involves an Hispanic-American veteran who decided to marry an illegal alien, and then lobby for passing a new law that would exonerate law breakers who are/become his relatives (more here). As usual, liberals see such a law as covering a tightly circumscribed, anecdotal circumstance that would have no spreading ripples. But the US Code is stuffed with these kinds of laws that have become collateral damage bombshells after passage. Starting such new dispensations for law-breakers related to vets, where do you think it would stop? How soon will other criminals be able to plead for mitigation and/or extenuation because they are related to someone who served their country?
