Obama’s Aunt, DADT and DREAM Act

Zeituni Onyango, Obama’s Aunt, Says US Obligated to Grant Her Citizenship

“If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen,” Onyango, 58, told Boston’s WBZ news.

No, we have no obligation to make any immigrant, legal or otherwise, a citizen.

It is this entitlement attitude that pisses me off the most about some illegal aliens (and Americans). The United States doesn’t owe anyone coming to this country citizenship, especially an illegal immigrant. To do so mocks the efforts of millions of legal immigrants who worked hard to earn their citizenship. You don’t get citizenship because your too lazy to go back to your native country and now live on the government dole. All she did was deny a deserving American or legal immigrant resident assistance they may have needed it.

Republicans Block Repeal of Military ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Policy

GOP senators said two controversial additions — language to begin the repeal of the ban on gays serving openly in the military and a last-minute amendment based on the DREAM Act to give young illegal immigrants a path to citizenship if they complete two years of college or serve that long in the military — made the bill impossible to support.

I don’t agree with those who voted against the Defense Department bill because they wish to deny gays the simple right of defending the country they love. I do agree with those who opposed it based on the blatantly amnesty driven DREAM Act. McCain is correct in saying both were cynical acts done to curry favor with certain voting groups. As for Obama, if he truly supported gays serving openly in the military he’s simply used his authority as Commander in Chief to make it so. It worked for Clinton and his halfhearted DADT policy.

By the way, these morons do know we have more important things to worry about than tacking on politically divisive issues onto defense bills, right? But the issue of congress tieing loosely related (and sometime non-related) items into a bill is another problem in Congress that needs to be addressed and eliminated.
