Fences fall from the sky

A thought: if the screaming Glenn Beck-following hordes engaging in the 9/12 crap are “pathologically anti-government”, as popularly described in the media, then what entity do they expect to keep out those durn illegals they’re simultaneously so afraid of?  Hell, with no government — and thus no one to set arbitrary political boundaries in the first place — what exactly would there be to keep immigrants away from?

Edit: Here’s another one of those “anti-government” protesters:

Um, yeah, about that “defense” cut

    These are the same people who told us during town halls that we must “keep the government’s hands off Medicare.”

    I’ve seen on some sites a theory batted around of how the disassociation of Medicare as a government program came about, that because of their targeted nature the recipients see it as something they’ve earned. How they would argue that, I dunno, since it’s doubtful that the average person on Medicare has paid in taxes as much as they get back in benefit.

    It’s painful to watch all this vitriol and not so much as a sliver of a coherent point in opposition coming up. As someone admittedly sympathetic to socialism, advocacy that amounts to little more than “socialism for me & not for thee” really pushes my button.

    b psycho,

    “that because of their targeted nature the recipients see it as something they’ve earned”

    Heh, yeah, what a surprise that a man who receives something believes he deserves it – as opposed to those lazy, dishonest people getting big fat welfare checks.

    It’s reminiscent of Newt Gingrich, who spouted off about small government but whose district received the most federal money.

    “It’s painful to watch all this vitriol and not so much as a sliver of a coherent point in opposition coming up.”

    I’m sympathetic to the protesters only in the sense that people have good reason to be upset at government because it hasn’t done them any good for some time. I think there’s honest indignation being preyed on by conservative celebrities.
