Idiot In Charge Award: Nancy Pelosi; Don’t Close The Border, Just Treat Teenage Drug Addicts

A reporter asked the soon-to-be-former-Speaker of the House a question about American teenager use of illegal drugs coming across the Mexican border, and if Nancy is ‘committed to sealing the border’ in regards to said drugs.

What follows is Nancy’s remarks about giving treatment on demand to American teenagers as a Rand Corporation’s study states that it is the ‘cheapest’ way to solve the problem of demand.  Nancy runs down the different methods and costs but at no point does she suggest stopping the influx of drugs.

Reporter: “The Justice Department has reported that 1 in 5 teenagers used illicit drugs last year, and most of those drugs came across the border from Mexico. Are you committed to sealing the border against the influx of illegal drugs from Mexico, and if so, do you have target date in mind for getting that done?”

The Dipstick Of The House: “Well if you question is about drugs, I’m for reducing demand in the United States. Ah, that is what our responsibility is, ah, on this subject. Ah, the Rand Corporation, a few years ago, did a report that said it would be much less expensive for us to, through prevention first and foremost, but through treatment on demand to reduce, ah, demand in our country. It’s the cheapest way to solve this problem. Incarceration is the next cheapest. It costs seven times more to to incarcerate than to have treatment on demand. It costs fifteen times more to, um, interdict at the border, and it costs twenty five more times more, ah, to, um, with eradiction of the cocoa leaf. This is an issue that is very important to our country because of what it is doing to our teenagers. That is the problem; what it is doing to our people. Controlling our border is our responsibility, so whether you are talking about stopping drugs from coming in or having a, ah, well managed migration policy, we have a responsibility to secure our border, but I don’t know what you mean by ‘seal’. And I think sealing the border doesn’t do a whole lot to reduce demand in the United States. As I travel the country, I know that kids are on meth and they can make it in their bathtubs. So again, if the issue is predicated on your first premise, which is, 1 in 5 teenagers in America has used drugs; is that the point? So let’s, ya know, let’s secure our border for every reason that we have a responsibility to do so, but, topic, but, if our purpose is to solve that problem, we must reduce demand and the best way to do that is through prevention and through treatment on demand.

Today’s Idiots In Charge Award Goes To Senate Democrats…

…for approving a climate change bill while Republicans boycotted the meeting.  This speaks to the last article I just posted about the spoiled democrats doing whatever they want without so much as a “by your leave” to the American People. Once again, a massive issue that requires thoughtful deliberation and statemanship; both of which are sorely lacking in the juvenile Democratic Party.

Does one single democrat realize how much their tantrums, name-calling, and sneaky backroom maneuvering is traumatizing the entire nation, and more than likely, giving our allies in the world a moment of pause?

Senate panel approves Democratic climate bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Thursday approved a Democratic climate change bill that would require industry to cut emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases 20 percent by 2020 from 2005 levels.

With Republicans boycotting the committee’s work saying more analysis of the legislation was needed, 10 Democrats voted to approve the legislation and one Democrat, Senator Max Baucus, voted against it.

The bill will now become one of several initiatives aimed at attacking global warming. Senator John Kerry is leading an effort with some Republicans and the White House to craft a compromise bill, which likely would not be voted on by the full Senate until next year at the earliest.

Just keep slapping the American public in the face and see what happens next…
