HART: America’s World Cup doesn’t runneth over — our borders do

The U.S. soccer team did the impossible — they briefly got Americans interested in soccer. We Americans do not like a sport where the score seems to be always 0 to 0. I scored more in junior high school. Well, maybe the same.

Most countries fervent about soccer take the day off for the World Cup, although they will shut down for pretty much anything at any time if it involves drinking and the possibility of a fist fight. Most soccer countries have a riot-based economy anyway.

FIFA, the world soccer, tax-exempt organization that puts on the World Cup, is about as corrupt as the UN. Yet when our country is involved, even if it involves cock fighting, we patriotically care.

Obama pitched his Chicago to FIFA for the World Cup and lost to Qatar . He brought in Bill Clinton make the case for bringing this soccer event to the USA . Bill had a proven track of conducting off the record business under the table. But you could tell Clinton ’s heart wasn't in pitching for a game where men cannot use their hands.

With Hondurans, Guatemalans and Nicaraguans just waltzing across our borders for free welfare, health care, education and to take our jobs, we are becoming a soccer loving country more and more each day. Where are our goalies on our borders?

Fifteen million Americans watched the U.S. team in the World Cup, which probably corresponds to the number of illegal aliens now living in our country. All 15 million of these fans went to various bars and stadiums to watch the games, yet they only took 500 cars.

Germany played Argentina in the final game. The only folks who were more torn about who to pull for than we Americans were the ex-Nazis living in Argentina since World War II. Historically, the countries who played well in the World Cup were Germany , Argentina , Uruguay , Brazil and Paraguay . For those at the Simon Wiesenthal Center , it was like a Nazi hunter’s “Flee” Market.
