    Feel'n Safe And Secure?

    What makes people feel safe and secure? Some latest items in the news that relate to feeling cozy and secure:

    Safety - Guns:
    SAN FRANCISCO - The ordinance, known as Proposition H, was passed with 58 percent of the vote. It has two main sections - one that would prohibit the sale, manufacture, transfer and distribution of all firearms and ammunition within city limits, and the other that generally would ban residents from possessing handguns.
    The illusion of gun control - if such an ordinance were to become law do people really believe those that break the law will suddenly get rid of their guns? There are plenty of laws making it illegal to carry guns, use guns, etc. SF needs to take a count of all those illegal aliens - already felons - and really ask themselves WTF? I guess if this passes and some Asian or Mexican gang members do a home invasion robbery (with their guns locked and loaded) and the resident shoots them, the homeowner goes to jail. Ah, California - how I don't miss it.

    National Security - Ports of Entry:
    ... my main point is that key pillars of a country's security infrastructure and defense should not be controlled or managed by foreign governments.
    The illusion of National Security - that statement above is from an Islamic point of view - even they know what turning control of a country's ports mean. The article continues to bash Muslim countries for allowing America (and other non-Muslim countries) to have such easy access. It would be best if Americans control Americas ports, yet I'd feel safer with Brits managing it than a terrorist-supporting nation. Keep in mind they (the UAE) do not help the USA because they like us - they only like the billions of $$$ we give them each year to operate there, as well as the protection we give their rich estates.

    Personal Security - JOBS:

    From an article titled Looking (in vain) for "Jobs Americans Won't Do":
    When unveiling his guest worker proposal, President Bush urged Americans to "legalize the process of people doing jobs Americans won't do." Illegal immigrants, in this view, are essential to the country's economic growth.

    As I have shown before, nothing could be further from the truth.

    There are at least 7 million illegal aliens working in the U.S.-about 4.5 % of the civilian labor force. Certain occupations have abnormally high concentrations of illegals: [Unauthorized Migrants: Numbers and Characteristics, Pew Hispanic Center, By Jeffrey S. Passel, June 14, 2005]
    Think your job is secure? Do you live from pay check to pay check? Many millions of illegal aliens flood into our country - already here, taking jobs, committing crimes, filling jails, and stealing the resources and monies of legitimate tax payers. It's a fact, it's reality, and the next time you vote you better make sure where the candidate stands - make sure they acknowledge illegal aliens are illegal - they are felons.
