I wasn’t planning on blogging at all this week (unless you count press releases sent to us being posted), but temporary presidential candidate Cory Booker is too easy a target. Basically every time the guy opens his mouth he makes me mad. This time it’s an article on NJ.com this morning: “Booker says deporting immigrants for a weed offense is misguided. He wants new rules.”
Why does this make me mad? I’ve admitted on the radio and in this blog that I’ve indulged earlier in life. As such, it shouldn’t make me mad.
But, it makes me mad because I have friends who live along the border, friends who have found large amounts of marijuana on their ranches and farms, so much that they had to call Border Patrol to come and get it, and then faced retaliation courtesy of damaged property by the people who illegally snuck across the border with the weed.
Regular listeners of the Bob & Steve Show heard their stories back in January and February. Go to the Radio Shows section of his website and scroll down if you want to listen. You’ll hear stories of break-ins, stolen and damaged property and even a kidnapping.
None of that matters to Cory Booker. In fact, based on the NJ.com article Booker thinks they can bring all the marijuana they want across the properties my friends own. According to NJ.com:
Booker’s Removing Marijuana from Deportable Offenses Act would prevent U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement from deporting immigrants convicted of possessing, using or distributing any amount of weed, and allow back into the country those who were deported when their most serious conviction was a marijuana-related offense.
Simply amazing! Cory Booker “would prevent U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement from deporting immigrants convicted of possessing, using or distributing any amount of weed.”
Distributing ANY AMOUNT! Every cop I know will tell you distribution is dealing.
Either Cory Booker has gone insane, he’s taking campaign advice from T-Bone or he’s simply desperate to get the rest of the country to pay attention to his temporary presidential campaign.
