Tea Party Patriots have it half right

I want to be clear that, when I hear the Tea Party Patriots talking about balanced budgets and fiscal responsibility, I am in total agreement. Unfortunately, it’s usually immediately afterwards that the fuzzy logic starts.

Let me see if I have this right: It’s fine for Americans to go into other countries with all manner of weaponry, kill men, women, and children, bomb any and all buildings, use weapons made from depleted uranium, poisoning those countries forever, set up puppet governments, steal natural resources, and create millions of homeless refugees. But it’s not all right for a Mexican to cross our border illegally to look for a job.

Hmmm. Sounds reasonable to me.
