Only a Pixilated President Can Dis the Value of Citizenship
Dear Mr. President:
In your short ten months in office, your administration has fundamentally changed the nature of our country. Your actions are downright bizarre such as your incompetent withdrawal from Afghanistan, ordering the FBI to target parents as “domestic terrorists,” policies that have created the worst inflation in thirty years, shutting down pipelines that require you to beg Saudi Arabia and Russia to produce more oil and relying on your son Hunter’s advice on China and Russia, the two most significant threats to our nation. You campaigned promising stability. You have brought us more instability than Trump. How is such a change possible in such a short time? The only word that can describe your behavior comes from the trial testimony of Aunt Martha, in the hilarious movie Arsenic and Old Lace. She describes several characters, including the judge hearing her bizarre testimony, as “pixilated.”
Pixilated is an old, seldom-used Americanism dating to the mid-19th century. Its general meaning is “bewildered, or whimsical, or intoxicated.” These words define your policies. These words describe how the actions of the Biden administration diminish the value of American citizenship.
The government you “manage” identifies the benefits of citizenship, specifically: protection from deportation, easier entry, and reentry into the U.S., travel without restriction in the states, the right to pay taxes and receive the same tax benefits as other Americans, the right to work for the federal government and receive government subsidies and the right to vote.
Before you assumed “management” of the U.S., these benefits were of great value. They generated patriotism, love of country, and respect for the rule of law. Your management is disrespectful to citizens. You treat citizens as commodities that send money to the government for the horror of watching the nation wither into a chaotic, authoritarian state.
And when you rudely turn your back and walk out of the room when reporters ask you simple questions, it proves you are pixilated.
Perhaps your most pixilated decision is opening the southern border for anyone to freely enter the country. You have inflicted more crime on our cities. You are forcing local governments to care for the illegal, mostly unvaccinated, masses. This drains resources needed for schools, police, and health care. Worse, it is a violation of your oath to defend the country. You may not remember it but you were on television on January 20, 2021, and repeated the oath in front of millions of us. Many Americans thought you understood what you were swearing to?
No one knows why you opened the border? In your pixilated state, you may truly believe drug cartels; sex traffickers, and the slave trade are capitalist enterprises. Please note it is not the type of business activity supported by American citizens.
Also, no one understands why you stopped building the southern border wall? It has already been paid for with taxpayer money. Now you pay contractors to sit and watch Looney Tunes. Obviously, you like walls since you ordered the American people to build a huge wall around your beach house. I am assuming it is your modesty when swimming nude. Believe me, Mr. President, no one will look, we would all be too embarrassed for you.
If one of the benefits of citizenship is the ease of entry and exit from our country, you have made it far easier to enter and exit for illegals than citizens. Almost two million illegal immigrants from 75 countries walked across the southern border into the U.S. this year. None were required to prove they had been vaccinated or tested for Covid-19. At the same time, citizens, returning from a foreign country, could not reenter the U.S. without proof of “a negative COVID-19 test, taken within three (3) calendar days of departure, or proof of recovery from the virus within the last 90 days.”
Another of the mentioned benefits of citizenship is free travel throughout the U.S. While citizens have such a right, it is limited to lawful activity. Citizens committing crimes are arrested, no matter where they are caught. Illegals, however, under your new order, have many safe areas where they cannot be arrested. These locations include schools, daycare centers, medical facilities, playgrounds for children, social service establishments, churches, demonstrations, and parades. You are giving those coming to the U.S. illegally, more freedom from your rule than given Americans.
And now, you want to give illegals who were separated from their children when detained at the border, $450,000 per person, as damages for the temporary separation. What about our disabled veterans or our war dead who sacrificed everything for this nation? Are they less valuable than illegals because they fought to defend the U.S.? Your payments to each illegal are almost four times more than the $121,411 medium household net worth in the U.S. Only a pixilated president could understand such reasoning.
The most moronic passage in one pamphlet is a discussion that notes all citizens have the same tax benefits as other Americans. I do not know many Americans who believe paying taxes and having the same tax deductions as other Americans is a benefit. First of all, most Americans do not have the same tax benefits as the super-wealthy. Few Americans can take advantage of carried interest tax avoidance scheme for hedge fund managers or the $12 million estate tax exemption or trillions that can escape taxation forever, with a stepped-up basis for capital gains at death. You should nominate the brochure’s writer for inclusion in Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum. There will be a hefty referral fee for Hunter, and the author will live forever as the dumbest person in the world.
The right to work for the federal government may be the one positive benefit of being a citizen that non-citizens cannot have. It is as close to nirvana as anyone can get. It requires little work, no creativity, and a talent to write what no one can understand. Clean clothes are not required and for the last 18 months, they did not even have to appear in an office. There are 2.8 million of them. Sounds like a lot of jobs to apply for, but openings only happen when a government worker dies or retires. There is a long wait even for citizens, but the illegals should not despair!
Fortunately, the illegals know you are trying to get rid of Trump’s Public Charge requirement. If you are successful with your Build Back Better legislation, the illegals will receive free community college, housing, and food subsidies. Since federal subsidies never go away, the illegals may just get benefits rivaling a federal job without the need to show up for work.
The big benefit of being a citizen is the sacred right to vote. What does the right to vote mean anymore? Hillary Clinton and the entire mainstream news media told us the Russians, with a massive disinformation campaign, elected Donald Trump in 2016. Trump and his 75 million supporters tell us that millions of illegal ballots, fake news, and the suppression of news like the contents of Hunter’s laptop, elected you in 2020.
In the 2000 election, George W. Bush was elected by the U.S. Supreme Court. Every other year our congressional representatives are elected by a rigged system called gerrymandering. The reelection rates for incumbents range from the low 90% to as high as 98%. Congressional districts are drawn for winners, not losers. Seriously, there was more turnover in the old Soviet Politburo than in Congress.
On its face, having the right to vote is a big deal. It seems to be a distinguishing right for which citizenship is needed. But nothing is more political than voting. Whoever controls the voting process wins. The Democrats are pushing the 800 page, “For the People Act.” If enacted it would nationalize voting. Whoever controls the DC swamp, controls voting in the nation. The bill would require every state to allow voting by mail, mandate online, and same-day voter registration. It effectively eliminates voter-identification requirements by requiring non-registered “voters” to sign a statement attesting to their identity. The bill would mandate drop-off boxes for mail-in ballots, and allow voters to designate another person to drop off their ballots.
My message to the illegal immigrants is, do not get discouraged, President Joe will soon have you casting ballots for Democrats. As for U.S. citizens, our pixilated president is working hard to dis our beliefs in the value of American citizenship.
