How do I (Guffaw) feel about immigration? Fine. Great. Come here for the American Dream! But assimilate, dammit! Do as my great-great-(great) grandparents did, coming from Germany and Ireland. Come here to become AMERICANS!
But do it legally!
We shouldn’t be heartless. But we shouldn’t have to pay for all medical care, public schools, college, housing, welfare, job training, food stamps, ad infinitum – ad nauseum for illegal aliens and their children, and provide them with free education through college. It’s said many are hard working folk who send much of their money back to families in their home country. We cannot afford to pay for our own poor! We shouldn’t be subsidizing others off shore. We already pay more in foreign aid than any other nation.
There must be limits.
Why the big push to force a path to citizenship? Statistically, it’s been shown that the vast majority of illegal aliens vote for one particular political party. (Yeah, I know, they shouldn’t be allowed to vote – but proof pf citizenship or I.D. isn’t required in many areas!)
We should have an enforced border. AND, stop this drug war nonsense.

I keep hearing about how much better the United States would be if only they would emulate their friendly neighbor to the North, Canada…
How many Hollywood actors started out as Canadian actors, but emigrated here to make it big? (view the link)
How many folks cross the Northern border and take our better tech jobs, without the stigma of having different colored skin or language making them readily
How about smuggling and human trafficking from the North? Don’t here any fence talk there…
Canadian Health Care. If it’s so wonderful, why do people come down here for the heavy lifting? Because, one gets on a list there, a long waiting list. Welcome to what’s up next for us!
High River citizens right to be suspicious as RCMP changes story over removal of guns
Gee, ya think maybe?
Gone were the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s prior references to firearms having been “seized.” Now it was all about Mounties “taking possession” of firearms.
Also absent were all the earlier allusions to the RCMP having taken guns that had been “unsafely stored.” Now it was all about finding firearms that were “in plain view” and the force had “no way of assuring [would] remain secure.”
Well, why would that kind of think make anybody suspicious…
Cpl. Turnbill reported many firearms were left scattered about where their owners dropped them as they fled the sudden rise in water levels.
PS – I love my Canadian blogfriends! This is about government.
Senators on Tuesday rejected building the 700 miles of double-tier border fencing Congress authorized just seven years ago, with a majority of the Senate saying they didn’t want to delay granting illegal immigrants legal status while the fence was being built! (emphasis Guffaw)
The 54-39 vote to reject the fence shows the core of the immigration deal is holding. The vote broke mostly along party lines, though five Republicans, including Sen. Marco Rubio and the rest of the bill’s authors, voted against the fence, and two Democrats voted for it.
No, Mr. President, we’ve not forgotten.
Washington D.C. – According to credible ATF sources, officials heavily involved in Operation Fast and Furious and named as partially responsible for the program’s failure by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the House Oversight Committee have been stripped of their government security clearances while some have been fired, demoted, and transferred. Criminal charges are also reportedly pending.
Please read the whole article. And remember federal agents died as well as thousands of Mexican nationals in violent drug smuggling wars.
In the United States the right to petition is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the federal constitution, which specifically prohibits Congress from abridging “the right of the people…to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Although often overlooked in favor of other more famous freedoms, and sometimes taken for granted, many other civil liberties are enforceable against the government only by exercising this basic right. The right to petition is a fundamental in a Constitutional Republic, such as the United States, as a means of protecting public participation in government.(Wikipedia)
Way Up North (and now Tam) brought to our attention (in demure fanfare, as is their tradition) a movement regarding individual States of these United States petitioning for peaceful secession from the same!
I went to the All Petitions/whitehouse.gov website, and was amazed! First, that such a group of petitions existed and second, that ‘the government’ had allowed such behavior, given their track record on such things!
By my count, there 24 States, including mine, with listed petitions!
Is this treasonous, or simply the right to petition?
Hezbollah Sets Up Shop in Mexico (link)
Blogfriend and SF guy Sean Linneane (Stormbringer) relays a story regarding HEZBOLLAH having active operations in Mexico. As of July 2010 and earlier.
This means IRAN, folks. IN MEXICO. Working with the cartels.
Now I’m just guessing here, but the 100 M-16s. 100 AR-15s, 2500 hand grenades, C4 explosives and anti-tank weapons already reported as stockpiled in Mexico probably didn’t come from U.S. retail gun stores.
(as the all but the AR-15s aren’t available at retail gun stores!)
Unless, they were assisted across the border by the BATFE!
Go. Read. Fear is optional.
