American insanity

As a newsman of 30 years, I've become coarsened to immersing myself in
stories that are disturbing, revolting, demoralizing, shocking and

Usually, I can vent about the reports to my wife, my radio talk-show
audience or you, dear readers of my daily column, and move on.

Talking about these kinds of stories, shouting about them, can be
cathartic and good for the soul.

But even though I have a wife with a sympathetic ear, a nationally
syndicated talk show and a daily column, sometimes the outrages come so
fast and furious, I can't keep with them.

Last month, one of those outrages occurred ? and I haven't been able to
stop thinking about it. I haven't been able to get past what it suggests
about the direction of our nation. I haven't been able to comprehend the
massive injustice.

And, so, this grizzled old newsman is venting once again ? in hopes that
it helps me cope and serves to awaken the vast universe of sleepwalking
Americans who haven't a clue yet that we've lost our freedoms in this
country, lost our property rights, lost our ability to distinguish right
from wrong, lost our ability to govern ourselves.

This story is not breaking news any longer, but I dare suggest fewer than
one in 100 Americans are aware of it. Maybe we can raise that percentage

In March 2003, Casey Nethercott caught two illegal aliens sneaking onto
his 70-acre Texas ranch, which he used his life savings of $120,000 to buy
earlier that year. Edwin Alfredo Mancia Gonzales and Fatima del Socorro
Leiva Medina had trekked through Mexico from El Salvador when they
stumbled on to Nethercott's ranch.

Though the pair admitted Nethercott's ranch hands provided them with
cookies, water and a blanket and let them go after an hour, the illegal
invaders enlisted the legal help of Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty
Law Center to represent them in a suit charging they were abused by

Because Nethercott was in possession of a gun illegally, he got five years
at the hands of Texas prosecutors.

And since he was in jail and unable to defend himself against Dees' civil
lawsuit, Nethercott's ranch was seized and handed over to the illegal

Two illegals who should have been deported are now living comfortably in
the land of the free and home of the brave ? the recipients of visas
available to immigrants who are victims of crimes and cooperate with
authorities. They are living on a ranch they stole, with the complicity of
the government. An American is in jail, and illegals who trespassed on his
property have taken ownership of his home.

It's incomprehensible. It's mind-boggling. It's a sign of the time.

Americans once looked out for Americans. Our governments ? local, state
and federal ? were designed to protect our rights and our safety. Our laws
were made for the benefit of the people, not to victimize and entrap them.

No longer.

I can't help but think the emerging pattern of government abuse against
the people is purposeful and by design.

We are being told, in no uncertain terms, that we the people are no longer
in control of our destiny. We are now subjects ? our "rights" merely
privileges extended by the government and revocable at the slightest whim.

Think about it.

Nethercott was defending his property from invasion. The government long
ago abdicated its responsibility to defend our national borders ? leaving
us all to fend for ourselves from higher crime rates, terrorist threats,
higher taxes and a thousand other problems related to illegal immigration.
Now he's in jail and his property in the hands of those who trespassed.

It's a metaphor for the insanity that is gripping America.

Our most basic rights have been lost.

Justice has been perverted. Truth has been obscured. Morality has been
turned upside down.

Maybe you think this just happens to other people?

If it can happen to homeowners in New London, Conn., it can happen to you.
If it can happen to ranchers out West who discover "protected" critters on
their property, it can happen to you. If it can happen to Casey
Nethercott, it can happen to you.
