Bush and the Truckers are on a collision course !

I once had a friend with a top floor apartment and a little patio outside near the corner of the roof.
One summer we were out there hoisting a few, and having a barbecue, and during the afternoon I was standing at the corner looking down. As I watched, I saw two cars coming, headed for the intersection and neither one was slowing down. One blew the stop sign and it got messy.

King George 'The Decider's' upcoming plans to visit Yuma Arizona to address 'border concerns' at the very time when Truckers all over this country are preparing to implement a NATIONAL TRUCKER'S BOYCOTT on April 23rd, 24th, and 25th to protest President Bush and our elected officials plans, to allow tens of thousands of Mexican truckers onto America's highways in the next 45 days seems a little 'curios' to me .

According to the truckers announcement at SAVE AMERICA.ORG the 'National Capital U-Circled; Bumper-to-Bumper, Three-Trucks Wide' plan will shut down every State Capitol as well as Washington while they pull up and shut 'em down for an hour and walk away from them.

Now don't get me wrong, I believe that it's about time for Bush to start worrying about this Mexican Invasion which is tearing our country apart and sapping this economy (which was already on the critical list!) beyond it's ability to handle. So what, you might ask is the reason for this trip ?
Is he planning to announce that he's changed his mind about turning loose tens of thousands of Mexican truckers, many with equipment is in very poor shape, who are not required to either read or write English, to pour into our country taking away American Truckers jobs at half the price and in the process, endangering every one's life?
Naa, I'm sorry but I just don't see that happening.

Maybe he's going to announce a Presidential pardon for Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean, two border agents who are currently in prison, enduring beating from other convicts, for doing their job !
He could literally do that with a phone call.
Naa, that would be the decent thing to do.

So what's he going down to Yuma for ? Whats he going to say ?
You're going to love this!

According to Reuters, 'The Decider' has plans to announce his plan for a new "Z" Visa which would effectively shake down every applicant for $3500 a pop. In his remarks, Bush is expected to cite failures in past immigration policy as a reason for a new approach, even though it was scorned by thousands of people who marched in Los Angeles on Saturday, demanding government action to allow an estimated 12 million 'illegal alians' to become citizens immediatly !
A cynical person might wonder if it was a shallow political attempt to help placate Democrats so he could get his deal for $100 billion funding request to pay for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Well there ya go Mr. President ! Legalize 12 million more, and let tens of thousands of Mexican trucks rolling all over the country to travel to God knows where, with God know what inside, with drivers that we are told, may not even be able read the street signs; oh yeah, that's the way to deal with the problem!
I guess the important thing is that the government gets it's $3500 a pop, and the Corporations get their cheap labor, and to hell with America!

Yep folks, I see a collision coming up here, and it looks like before this one's over, it could get very messy!

(So ya see it's not just Iraq ... He doesn't 'get it' about anything !)
