This week, Time Magazine columnist Michael Kinsley perpetrated the biggest fraud concerning illegal immigration yet expressed in America.
What sickens me stems from Time publisher Richard Stengel and Kingsley's unabashed support of illegal alien migration. In addition, they refuse to address the ominous population dilemma created by relentless and unending immigration.
They expose global warming, but refuse to address its causes. They report on air pollution gripping our nation's cities, but refuse to address its source. They survey our national water crisis, but won't give a word as to its origin. Both men dance around the denial tree.
Time Magazine remains infamous for its alignment with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the progressive liberal socialists in the U.S. Congress. At first, it seemed this piece intended humor. With incredulity, this critic read the piece again – and got the message. What Kinsley expresses proves a "sour grapes" attempt to cheer the errant Congress to once again urinate in the face of the two-thirds of the U.S. electorate who have made their views crystal clear;
We need a sensible, logical and reasonable long-range "U.S. POPULATION STRATEGIC PLAN ."
A key part of that equation must be a "U.S. IMMIGRATION MASTER PLAN."
After you read this column, I invite you to write a rebuttal letter to Time Magazine expressing your disgust at their total lack of foresight, forethought and responsible action toward future generations. I'm including my letter send to Time for an example.
This country's brightest minds and most educated elite sell us down the river toward a Niagara Fall's ending. They shove more coal into a runaway steam locomotive that's headed over the cliff of the Grand Canyon. They drive us into the teeth of a "Human Katrina" instead of writing ideas for solving our national crisis. I shake my head at how stupid our leaders' lack of leadership at all levels.
We don't need double the current number of legal immigrants that Kinsley supports let alone the millions of illegal ones.
"Another question: Why are you so upset about this particular form of lawbreaking?" Kinsley wrote. "After all, there are lots of laws, not all of them enforced with vigor. The suspicion naturally arises that the illegality is not what bothers you. What bothers you is the immigration. There is an easy way to test this. Reducing illegal immigration is hard, but increasing legal immigration would be easy. If your view is that legal immigration is good and illegal immigration is bad, how about increasing legal immigration? How about doubling it? So in the end, this is not really a debate about illegal immigration. This is a debate about immigration."
Double legal immigration? Kinsley blathers with no intelligent, critical thinking.
In the name of reality, give us one positive reason for adding 100 million people to the USA in the next three decades Mr. Kinsley? Have you seen the Lake Lanier, Georgia water crisis? Do you live there? Does it affect you? How about Los Angeles traffic? What about breathing the toxic air over Denver, Chicago or Houston? How about the $3.00 a gallon gas soon to be $6.00 a gallon? And you want to double immigration? You prove indolent and inane!
How out of touch can Kinsley be when he writes, "Maybe the complainers are right, and immigration is now damaging our country, stealing jobs and opportunity, ripping off taxpayers, fragmenting our culture. I doubt it, but maybe so."
Here's what I wrote time and invite you to do the same. Keep your letter under 100 words for maximum chance for publication. Let's email 100,000 letters into Time's inbox for a taste of American expression:

RE: Michael Kinsley "Kidding Ourselves About Immigration/12/17/07
Michael Kingsley's admonition to double current legal immigration numbers fails to understand the horrific environmental impact on U.S. sustainability 40 years from now! Current demographic figures show our country adding 120 million people by 2040 to 2050. Over 80 percent driven by immigration! Every added person to America negatively impacts our sustainability by multiplying our exhaustion of our energy resources, water and food while it destroys our quality of life. Did Kingsley consider another 100 million Americans' impact on our gridlock in our cities? We can't save the world, but we can destroy our civilization. As a sustainable nation, we grow tired of unending immigration that explodes us into the same consequences those immigrants flee.
