Random thoughts on the immigration
thing...You've heard of that term “De facto”? Meaning the way it
really is, regardless of what they're telling you, or what name they
give it. So if a bunch of people are coming into your country, and
it's having an effect, like having to compete for lower wages, or
your country giving away social services which it can't afford, then
who is ruling your country? Their leaders have made a royal mess of
things there, and now people are feeling the consequences here. The
consequences of foreign rulers' decisions. So who is your de facto
ruler? Just pondering.
Since we're the world's policeman,
maybe we could liberate Mexico. Give the people there a chance to
run things a different way. Not sure it would work. It's by no means
a scientific survey, but the Mexican guys I've worked around were
into the macho-machismo thing. They have a hard time taking orders.
Can you have order if guys can't take orders? What a racist I
am...no, just commenting on a CULTURAL reality.
Of course, I'd rather have a Mexican
neighbor than a Muslim. I think. Some of these guys are into this La
Razza thing. It's a desire to take over parts of the US as Mexico
north. What are the odds that they would ever be treated as espionage
agents? You know...out of uniform and all? Don't get me wrong, it's
not that I dislike Mexicans, or their culture. If you've observed
much of life at all, you know that life isn't always conveniently cut
So it is, I try to look at things a different way... maybe these people are just a
replacement for all the babies that have been aborted. What does God
think of all this? Is he under any obligation to protect a country that
doesn't care much about Him?
I like their food, the way they talk,
and, in my field, sign arts, they are among the best. I don't mean
that a few of them do nice work, no, they are known for great work.
But think about some of the refugees from southeast Asia. These
people had to dodge bullets, swim across dangerous rivers, and wait
in refugee camps for years before they came here. These people
really_wanted_to_be_here. So it is, immigration should sort people
out. Not with the above survival stuff, I don't wish that upon them.
But they should be required to speak a little of the language, know
something about the republic and it's history. Know what makes this
country different, and have an appreciation of it.
We don't have TV in our house, but the
other day, as I was getting an (of all names) Arizona brand tea out
of a convenience store cooler, I saw a TV show in progress. There was
a gal using a putty knife scraper tool on some canvas. I thought to
myself, hey this could be a cool artist show. Turns out it was one of
those forensic shows. The gal leaves the lab, and talks to a woman
who is an illegal immigrant. The forensic gal talks to the other one
about going to the hospital. There was an issue about papers.
Forensic gal, in a lofty intonation says something like:”You're
still a human being, you still have rights”.Well sure, but
hello-o-o-o, WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE BEING TAXED AND THE
GRANDCHILDREN BEING FLEECED? Whatever happened to “No taxation
without representation”. The debt being placed on future
generations is unjust. Maybe it's OK as long as they're white?
The problem is, that if immigration
policies should work as a filter, our federal government wants to put
the filter on backwards. Let anybody in, no questions, and drive
others away. Seriously. I'm thinking of leaving. I've looked at visas
and other stuff. Goodbye United STATE of America.
