President Obama makes fun of the conservative Republicans' concerns about protecting the US border. (excerpts):  Some 12,000 people died in Mexico's spiraling drug violence last year, according to grim annual tallies reported Monday by the country's leading media outlets.  Annual indexes of torture, beheadings and the killing of women all showed increases.  

Commentary:  President Obama spoke in El Paso, TX, on May 10, 2011, claiming that the feds have completed the border fencing that the Republican's wanted built, and that El Paso and other border communities "are among the safest in the nation."  He said, "They wanted a fence.  The fence is now basically complete."  "Maybe they'll need a moat," he said.  "Maybe they'll want alligators in the moat."  

Congress passed the Secure Fence Act in 2006.  The legislature states that "the fence would secure 700 miles of the border."  The facts:  700 miles of fencing has not been built.  Richard Stana, director of homeland security issues for the Government Accountability Office, informed the Senate Homeland Security Committee in March that Homeland Security increased the total length of the border fence to 649 miles, an increase of three miles in one year.  That leaves 1,081 miles of border where Homeland Security has no operational control.  

Are the border cities safe?  An annual statistical report of the Executive Office for the United States Attorneys, which was published in 2010 states, "Violence along the border of the United States and Mexico has increased dramatically during recent years.  The violence associated with Mexican drug trafficking organizations poses a serious problem for law enforcement."  According to the Justice Department, there were more than two and a-half times as many criminals charged in federal court in Western Texas, where El Paso is, than in the combined districts of Southern New York, which includes Manhattan and the Bronx, and Eastern New York, which includes Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island.  

 Does Obama care about his lies and the fact that a few of us can sniff these things out?  No, his gamble is that millions of Mexicans will vote for him and he doesn't care about the few of us that know about his lies or lack of ethics.  The Bible says, "In the last days, perilous times will come.  Men will be lovers of their own selves...boasters, proud, blasphemers...unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers...despisers of those who are good, traitors, heady, highminded...from such turn away" 2 Timothy 3:1-5.  "Better is a poor and wise child than an old and foolish king (or president), who will no more be admonished" Ecclesiastes 4:13.
