It seems to me that the advice, “when you’re in a hole, you should stop digging,” should also apply to our budgets. An example is our school budgets that are so bad that the quality of education in our schools is in real trouble and getting worse. Yet we have a very high percentage of undocumented immigrant children in our schools who are costing us a fortune to educate and feed.

Then stupidity seems to take full control as our politicians (including Gov. Brown) shove “sanctuary state” down our throats.

The illegal immigrants seem to be outsmarting us in many ways. But I guess if we’re stupid enough to legalize marijuana for the taxes, we can’t expect much common sense to be very active in politics. So the illegal drug problems that will follow the legalization of marijuana will become a nightmare that will no doubt eat up more taxes than the legalization of marijuana brings in.

Our enemies don’t need to work at destroying us — we’re on the road to doing that ourselves.

Illegal drugs, illegal immigration and our politicians are out of control.
