Welcome To Walmart! ...


I don't know about you, but I'm so tired of hearing about those White House "crashers" that I've thought about jettisoning my TV and radio right out the window ... I could care less why Michaele and Tareq Salahi did it, I reckon they're simply of the same ilk as "balloon boy's" parents - media hounds looking for their own reality TV show - or seekers of quick fame and easy fortune any way they can get it ... no my question is, if the couple actually managed to gain access to the White House dinner as "uninvited guests" - how were they able to get past White House staffers and Secret Service security procedures? ... if I were the President, I would be more than a bit hot under the collar ... what if their intent had been to harm the President or others?

If I were the President, and if Michaele and Tareq Salahi were discovered to have broken any law associated with crashing that White House dinner ... they would now be facing criminal charges ... immediately arrested ... forthwith jailed ... prosecuted to the furthest extent of the law ... tried in a court of law ... and if found guilty ... magically transformed from uninvited White House guests to inmates of one of our fine federal correctional facilities ... then provided with free transportation to that facility ... that would be that.

More importantly, if I were the President, and if Michaele and Tariq Salahi did actually manage to maneuver their way past those White House staffers and Secret Service Agents - as it's being reported to the press, and as presented to the public ... I would be extremely concerned with my safety ... so consequently, those White House staffers and Secret Service Agents which allowed the Salahis to slip past them uninvited, would immediately find themselves standing in the unemployment line seeking a career more suitable to their experience, ability and skill ... maybe some of them could become Border Patrol Agents - they are required to deal with countless "uninvited guests" on a daily basis ... or how about this ... some could hire on as Walmart greeters .... I can hear it now -- "Attention Walmart shoppers -- please welcome the Salahis!"

It'll be interesting to hear the whole story...

And I agree they are just another version of the balloon dingdongs

I doubt the truth will ever come out ...

Proves that nobody is really safe, not even the President of the United States.

Nothingprofound - I think we all live under a false sense of security ... if we could only realize how vulnerable we are, and think about how fragile life really is - we might do things a bit differently ...

I grew up along the border between Texas and Mexico. One night we we coming back from a restaurant in H. Matamoros when we saw folks with suitcases on the top of their heads crossing the river right under the bridge. We told the custom officer when we got to the US side. He said, they are always doing that, it's the easiest way to cross. That's why we have a Border Patrol Team that waits right under the bridge for them. If they would cross about a mile further up or down, they would probably make it. Any one can get in if they think it out first.

If we really wanted to stop or impede the continuous influx of illegal aliens ... we would simply prosecute those who illegally employ them as cheap labor ...

HBO has had on a a devastating documentary film called "Which Way Home" it follows child illegal immigrants (some as young as 6 or 7) as the ride freight trains trying to enter the US illegally.

Some were trying to reach their families who had already gone on to los Estados Unidos, leaving their children behind.

Some parents had actually been encouraging their child to take off to the US, looking forward to getting a remittance monthly.

So many of these children disappear forever.

Rather than spending millions on the border fence (which can be overcome by a tall ladder) we could try and help Mexico develop a better economy which would allow their citizens to live in their own country and make enough money to eat.
