Two Peas in a Pod

FRIDAY 6-27-08…Watching the two presidential candidates snipe at each other on the campaign trail is sorta’ like watching Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Laurel and Hardy were inseparable, and so much alike. Both dumb as a post.

We’ve got McCain who was against the Bush tax cuts, before he was in favor of ’em. (Kinda’ like John Kerry who once said “I voted for it before I voted against it.”) Then, there’s Barack Obama who early on in the campaign said he would rescind the Bush tax cuts, but now says he’ll cut taxes for the middle class and increase ’em for the wealthy.

 McCain has changed positions on things so many times I can’t keep up with ’em all and I’m not sure where he stands on issues now. Barack Obama said early on that he would rely on the federal public financing system in the general election as long as McCain did too. But now, Obama says he’ll bypass public financing and rely on private donations. Now, McCain says he probably will too.

Both candidates support giving legal status (amnesty) to millions of illegal immigrants, but neither of ‘em has made it the centerpiece of their campaigns…..unless they’re speaking to specifically immigrant groups.

 McCain just last week assured Hispanic leaders that he would push through legislation to overhaul federal immigration laws if elected. Overhauling immigration laws is just another way of saying “comprehensive immigration reform” which died a well-deserved death last year. Barack Obama, speaking to the homosexual community says as commander in chief, he would end the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. In other words, both candidates are telling selective audiences what they want to hear, but neither has the guts to go on national television and be really…..you know…..honest!

 Rosanna Pulido, a Hispanic (as well as a conservative Republican) said of McCain “He’s one John McCain in front of white Republicans, and he’s a different John McCain in front of Hispanics.

 That does not bode well for voters come November as they look at their ballots and try to discern the difference between the two candidates. It’ll be like trying to decide between a hamburger and a ground beef patty.

  1. The age-old pesky U.S.-Mexico border problem has taxed the resources of both countries, led to long lists of injustices, and appears to be heading only for worse troubles in the future. Guess what? The border problem can never be solved. Why? Because the border IS the problem! It’s time for a paradigm change.

    Never fear, a satisfying, comprehensive solution is within reach: the Megamerge Dissolution Solution. Simply dissolve the border along with the failed Mexican government, and megamerge the two countries under U.S. law, with mass free 2-way migration eventually equalizing the development and opportunities permanently, with justice and without racism, and without threatening U.S. sovereignty or basic principles.
