"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Feel Strongly About Illegal Immigration?

It's my right as an American to speak my mind - Joe Buehrle

The St Louis Post-Dispatch published an article on the 15th of this month regarding Joe Buehrle.

Who is Joe Buehrle? Joe Buehrle has signs out on the front of his house in St Charles, MO. Some of his "neighbors wonder if he has crossed the boundary of decency."

Must be the posters have pornography on them or something. No, no nudity, just some signs railing about illegal immigration...why one of them even "included a curse."

A little bit about Buehrle from the Dispatch:
Buehrle, 52, a retired St. Charles city employee, lives in an unassuming brown house on Perry Street. An American flag flies on one side of the steps leading to the house. A red-and-white St. Charles flag flies on the other side.

Buehrle is a tall man with tattoos in remembrance of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on each bicep.
Uh oh, he's one of them, what you do call them? Patriots? He has a tattoo in honor of the memory of the people lost on 9/11 on his bicep? He's an ignorant one alright.

According to a critic of Buehrle, Al Gonzalez chairman of the Hispanic Leaders Group of Greater St. Louis:
"The real issue that we're having here is that he can express himself freely, but the way that he's doing it cannot be right. Not only do the signs use offensive words, he said, but they also make generalities about Hispanic people."
Gonzalez is correct, the real issue is that he can express himself freely. 'Cannot be right' just doesn't strike home as a very good argument, can it? I wouldn't think it could be 'right' that thousands of illegal immigrants marched through the streets of many of our cities demanding rights and citizenship, but they happened and it wasn't on their own property.

As to complaints about the 'curses' on some of the placards Buehrle said the "words he used were in the dictionary."

I find it interesting when there is an article regarding an American's right to free speech, while so many are making a claim to something that is not theirs because of the means of entry into the country they chose.

Beyond the Valley Park fiasco, "the St. Charles County Council has been discussing a proposal that, among other things, would bar companies from getting a county business license, permit or contract for five years if they are found to be hiring illegal immigrants. It would apply only in unincorporated areas."
