We’re being invaded. President Obama plans to do something about it. No, I’m not talking about the invasion from the south by illegal aliens. I’m not talking about the invasion by Russian spies or even Islamic extremists. The invasion I’m talking about is by Asian Carp. Czar John Goss appointed by Obama to handle the problem, will move fast according to Dick Durbin.
Sure all of those other invasions I spoke of are happening and are a clear and present danger to our country, but what’s most important is that we spare the natural wildlife of the Great Lakes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure the Asian Carp nuisance is a problem. They are an invasive species that can completely decimate other species of fish. But is it really necessary to appoint an Asian Carp czar? Obama loves him some czars, doesn’t he?
“This is a serious challenge, a serious threat,” Durbin said. “When it comes to the Asian carp threat, we are not in denial. We are not in a go-slow mode. We are in a full attack, full-speed ahead mode. We want to stop this carp from advancing.”
Wow. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the federal government had the same attitude towards other, more pressing issues? What it really boils down to is this, the Asian Carp can’t vote. More specifically they can’t vote Democrat. If they could, Durbin and Obama would be singing a different tune; if they could vote we wouldn’t in our wildest imagination see someone known as the Asian Carp czar.
John Goss will be in charge of making sure that tens of millions in federal money is spent efficiently. Of course the words federal money and efficiently rarely wind up in the same sentence except when describing what was hoped for or didn’t happen. All I can say to Obama’s Asian Carp czar is good luck with that one.
