This post is a follow up to my post from Friday about feeling less safe every day. Here is more reason to feel less safe because of the action (or non-action) of our government.
As President Obama goes to the U.N. and garners accolades from low life, scumbag dictators; as he apologies to the world for what he perceives as the past-wrongs America has inflicted on the world and for our country's arrogance; as he plans on sitting down and make nice with a madman who wants to destroy us; as he plans to rid our arsenal of nukes and make us impotent to defend ourselves and destroys our policy of "peace through strength"; as he proclaims his intent to pass amnesty for illegal aliens; as he gives the order to close GITMO and bring terrorist prisoners onto our soil; as he releases terrorists back into society and sends them to Bermuda; as he investigates CIA agents who did their job to protect us and strives to turn them into criminals; as he fills the White House with socialist "czars" who plan on social justice for the "deserving" at the expense of everyone else; as he takes over private businesses; as he plans on a "new world order" and denies American exceptionalism; while he is "fundamentally changing" our country into a socialist/facist regime where the federal government rules our lives; where his "global warming" religion is going to destroy our economy; while he is spending our country into deficits that will never be able to be repaid; while he forces socialized health care down our throats; while he avoids making a decision about the war in Afghanistan at the peril of our troops and to the delight of the Taliban; where his Dept. of Homeland Security replaces the word "terrorism" for the more pc version of "man-made disaster"; while his policies are taking away our freedoms and liberties day by day; when his administration titles you a "domestic terrorist" because you exercise your right to free speech; where his state-run media and flunkies in congress call you "racist" because you disagree with him...have I missed anything?
While all of this is happening, our borders are being breached every day by illegal aliens, drug traffickers and possible terrorists. Isn't the first job of the Federal Government to keep our country and people safe? You would think that President Obama would use some of that stimulus money (you remember the money that was supposed to create jobs), and hire more people to control and protect our borders.
This article just gives me more reason to believe that Obama and his administration are not serious about doing the job they were hired to do...protect America. They are too busy trying to control our lives at the expense of protecting them.
Administration Will Cut Border Patrol Deployed on U.S-Mexico Border

(CNSNews.com) - Even though the Border Patrol now reports that almost 1,300 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border is not under effective control, and the Department of Justice says that vast stretches of the border are “easily breached,” and the Government Accountability Office has revealed that three persons “linked to terrorism” and 530 aliens from “special interest countries” were intercepted at Border Patrol checkpoints last year, the administration is nonetheless now planning to decrease the number of Border Patrol agents deployed on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Border Patrol Director of Media Relations Lloyd Easterling confirmed this week--as I first reported in my column yesterday--that his agency is planning for a net decrease of 384 agents on the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal 2010, which begins on October 1.

Update 9/27: I received a comment on this post that listed an article that contradicts the one above. It is the only article I can find that tells a different story. In fairness, I decided to post it. The direct link will only allow access if you sign up for their site, so I decided to link to the comment I received and you can read it for yourself. The article was in the Arizona Daily Star: Feds: No Plans For Fewer SW Border Agents, But U.S. Still Seeks Reinforcements on Canadian Line

Whichever article is the true story, the fact of the matter is that the border is not secure. The fence isn't finished and there is violence, illegal aliens, drugs and possible terrorists crossing over that border every day.
