We need to show more sympathy for these people.
* They travel miles in the heat.
* They risk their lives crossing a border.
* They don't get paid enough wages.
* They do jobs that others won't do or are afraid to do.
* They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.
* They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day ~ every day.
I'm not talking about illegal Mexicans ~ I'm talking about our troops! Doesn't it seem strange that many Democrats and Republicans are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don't support our troops, and are even threatening to defund them?
There is a LOT of oil splashing and sloshing onto the Gulf Coast of the United States thanks to a run-away oil flow from a British Petroleum drilling/pumping failure. Some say the damage is being over-blown. Others beg to differ.
I know those of you who look at these photos, taken today at Alyssa's First Birthday Party will say that they look more or less like every one year old little girl's first birthday, and you'd be right. However, this is my granddaughter and I think she's cute as a button.
Aunt Emilie and Alyssa - both are princesses
Alyssa, the princess, and my grandson Griffin (the little Prince)

Let them eat cake!
Let them eat more cake (note the purple flower is gone)!!
As unfair as this will sound to bleeding hearts, progressives, barack hussein obama style utopian socialists and the Democratic Party which sees itself losing legions of potential Democratic Party voters, anyone who violates the Immigration and Nationality Act Title 8 U.S.C. §~ 1101-1503 commits a felony. A felony is a crime. Anyone who commits a felony is by definition, a criminal.
Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:
Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or
Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or
Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact;
has committed a federal crime.
In fact, of course, they, approximately 12-38 million strong, are already occupying (illegally) large swaths of the great American landscape.
Therefore, Arizona Governor Brewer’s message, as set forth in SB 1070, should be seen as acknowledgement of the fact that it is the responsibility of government to prevent even more invasions, AND to identify the criminals already here in order to process said violators for one-way tickets back to Mexico, or other nation of origin.
It sounds so simple and logical that one wonders: Why are we still debating the issue?
Then one witnesses Democrat traitors in Congress groveling before Mexican President Calderon with standing ovations for his meddling assault on the rule of law in Arizona and it all makes sense again:
SB 1070 is urgently needed to counter the anti-American scheming of Marxists whose only priority is to grow the base of the Democrat Party, even if it means decimating the American economy, homeland security, common language, social order, educational system, and cultural heritage.
Power is power is power is all that matters to the radical left as defined by the regime of barack hussein obama.
Despite the lunatic barking of deranged racists like Al Sharpton, the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles, La Raza everywhere, and the Democrat Party in general, Governor Brewer’s common sense solution to a persistent problem is spreading. As reported in a National News Release by Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC), seventeen states are now working to incorporate legislation similar to SB 1070 in their own state law. And none of those states are trembling in fear of Mexican President Calderon.
My hat is off to: ARKANSAS, IDAHO, INDIANA, MARYLAND, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, MISSOURI, NEBRASKA, NEVADA, NEW JERSEY, OHIO, OKLAHOMA, PENNSYLVANIA, RHODE ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA, TEXAS, and UTAH
Moving on -- Arizona's former governor, Janet Napolitano -- the obama Secretary of Homeland Security presented this bill to the previous administration for costs incurred by the state by ILLEGAL Aliens:
$1.6 billion from Arizona's education system, $694.8 million from health care services, $339.7 million in law enforcement and court costs, $85.5 million in welfare costs and $155.4 million in other general costs. Today, she is mute on the issue.
Today, John Morton, an offical at the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), told a reporter in Chicago that ICE may not neccessarily process illegal aliens turned over to them from officials in Arizona. Therefore even if they're surrendered to the US Government with appropriate supporting documentation, the Federal Government will IGNORE the law. It's very interesting to see that an entire arm of the Federal Government chartered to do one thing: Immigration and Customs has refused to do it.
Thanks barack hussein obama. This is the hope and change you promised.
The mariachis sing a heartfelt tribute to the candidate who will assure them that the borders won't be closed, they will never have to pay taxes, can enjoy a free education - kindergarten through university, they never need to get a driver's license and should they want to, they don't have to learn enough English to read a single street sign. When they're ready to retire, they can enjoy Social Security benefits without having contributed a nickel. The children they have here will be citizens and neither they nor their posterity will ever have to pay for healthcare. It's no wonder that they're saying VIVA OBAMA!
Reports indicate that the man, who has only been identified as a chef, apparently was a victim of a horrible prank.
The chef, after a heavy night of drinking, passed out. Some of his friends, who had also been drinking thought that it would be funny to put the eel inside of the victim. The medical examiner determined that the cause of death was that the eel, which was fifty centimeters long, devoured the man’s bowels. No word yet on charges against the friends for their role in the death.
This blog has many elements and depending on your interests, may pique your imagination...or not. I urge you to be unreasonable. Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world. The unreasonable persist in trying to adapt the world to themselves, therefore all progress depends on unreasonable people. The more unreasonable you are, the more likely you are to enjoy this blog. All men dream, but not equally.
If you're a socialist or a Marxist, you'll find that I poke fun at your absurd notions of "good government" on a regular basis. So you might not wish to follow this blog because you'll be offended.
John Locke said, "One unerring mark of the love of truth is not entertaining any proposition with greater assurance than the proofs it is built upon will warrant." I like what Locke said. We can't theorize without adequate information because when we do we inevitably twist facts to suit theories rather than theories to suit facts. In this blog and in my life, I try to maintain this perspective.
Either you believe in our essential spark of shared divinity, or you succumb to our human insecurity. Either way your conscience lets you slice it, the main thing is to earnestly do what is right at the time.
Today, I balance work and play as much as anyone can. All things remaining equal, play is more important. Life is short - it's important to make every day count for something, if only to yourself.
I'm a former tinker/tailor/soldier/sailor who has now decided that maybe it really wasn't all done for nothing.
