Backlash...

From the Boston Herald...

Claws, Tongues Sharp In Beauty Salon Brawl
By Michele McPheeSaturday,
May 27, 2006 -

Fake nails and women’s shoes were flying as a bloody claw fight erupted at a Dorchester salon after one primping patron allegedly screamed at a woman bantering in Spanish, “Speak English! This is America!”

Just minutes after the melee broke out at Kathy’s Nail Design at 261 Bowdoin St., it escalated to the point of a 911 call.

A cop who arrived to break the fracas up got angry red scratches on his neck and arm for his trouble. They were left by a woman who’d just spent $40 for French manicure nail tips, said the shop’s owner, David Win.

Now, how about that?

This is what happens when our Government and the Media whip the American Public into a lather about an issue, and then does nothing about it.

Or makes matters worse by constructing legislation which amounts to nothing more than a gratuitous power grab on behalf of an already bloated and overgrown Federal Government, or a political show for no other purpose than to be able to claim that they have addressed the issue in an Election Year.

The Immigration issue is a powder keg waiting to explode, and every day, and with every new round of discussion on Capitol Hill, the fuse gets a little shorter.

The President seems to want to grant Amnesty and Citizenship to everyone who can sneak in to our Country, for God only knows what reason.

The Republican Party seems to want cheap Labor for their Big Business cronies, and the Democrat Party wants millions of disadvantaged, overworked, underpaid, oppressed, disgruntled Voters who might buy into the idea that Democrats might look after anyone besides themselves. (I should say, the elected representatives of the Republican and Democrat Parties inside the Beltway.)

Neither Party, nor the President seem to care what the American People want.

The American People want our Borders secured. Whatever it takes, whatever it costs.

The American People want the Laws of our Country enforced.

The American People want Representation by our Elected Leaders.

Sadly, I do not believe that we will get it on this issue.

The pundits say that there is still hope, and that it lies in the House of Representatives, but I believe that they are too worried about covering up what they have hidden in their offices and freezers to do the right thing on the Immigration Issue.

I wish I could be more optimistic, but I can't.

But there is one thing that I know about the American People. We solve our own problems in the end.

When the realization sets in that our government will not solve this problem, the Minutemen will finish their Fence. Employers will stop using Illegal Laborers. Beauty Shop Patrons will demand that the people around them speak English.

If our Elected Representatives fail to deal properly with this problem, America could become a very hostile place for Hispanics, Legal or Illegal.

I hope it does not come to that.
