All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Bush Surrenders on the War on Drugs

Not really. I thought that since W’s new guiding philosophy is “if the problems is really big, were not going to enforce the law”, that maybe it would be applied equally to all executive branch functions.

Apparently that’s the way Bush feels about enforcing the immigration laws.

President Bush had a blunt message Monday for fellow Republicans focusing only on get-tough immigration policies: He said sending all the nation's estimated 11 million illegal immigrants back to their home countries is not the answer. "Massive deportation of the people here is unrealistic - it's just not going to work," Bush said. "You know, you can hear people out there hollering it's going to work. It's not going to work."

So, if the policy isn’t going to work because the problem is too big, can we count on the Pres to cut out the government program? What other ill-conceived federal make jobs programs will now go away under this new governing philosophy?

I was including a list of the unconstitutional and quasi-unconstitutional departments under the oversight of the Executive Branch, but it made my post run over 5 pages. You can go here to get the list, note some of the agencies are necessary and constitutionally proper but most aren’t.

When are we going to get small conservative government from the Republicans? Remember in the 80’s when it was vital we retake the Senate? I do. That wasn’t enough we had to retake the House. Thus the contract with America. We accomplished that goal. But the Stainmeister was President and we had to completely overthrow the powers of darkness to lead us into the Millennial Reign of Reagan. We elected GWB, ie the second coming of Reagan/Christ.

What did that get us? Instead of small government and a conservative agenda, we got the greatest expansion of government and debt in recent history. GWB isn’t the second coming of Reagan, he’s FDR and LBJ reincarnated and rolled into one.

Lest anyone think, and you know who you are Bill, that I’m some anti-conservative who’s PO’d because his guy didn’t get elected. I’m not. I’m like the guy who thought he married a virgin and found out after catching syphilis on his wedding night that his bride was really a crack whore, who’d say anything to get what she wanted.

Bush won’t enforce America’s boarders because the job is too hard. Does that mean he’s done fighting the war on drugs for the same reason?
