Unauthorized Occupants?

“It depends on what the meaning of IS is”

We all remember THAT, right?

(from Brock Townsend)

The religious and political Left loves to play word games and if you understand where the Left is coming from you will realize that they use language as a weapon of war and that the words they spout at us don’t mean what we think they mean. That is part of their offensive against us.

Have any of you noticed with the big fuss over illegal aliens coming into this country by the millions how the terminology has changed. Awhile back the illegal aliens were called just what they were.

Then that was shortened to just “illegals.” A short time after that they became “undocumented workers” and they are now being relabeled as “refugees.” There is a pattern to all this, an evolution of the Leftist agenda, if you will.

Most Americans, except for the fuzzy-headed liberal elite, are not really happy with the influx of illegal aliens into this country. They are just old-fashioned enough to have the idea that people ought to come here legally or stay at home. There are some exceptions, but, in the main, this is where Americans have been at. The idea of handing out freebies and all manner of goodies to someone just because he managed to get into your country illegally doesn’t really appeal to most Americans. The feds soak us enough now without them adding anymore freeloaders to the dole for us to pay for.

At this point, I’d like to differentiate. The Mexican illegals that came here during the 1940s and 50s were a whole different breed than what we have to deal with today. Admittedly they came in illegally, but they were looking for a decent life, which they couldn’t get in Mexico, and they were willing to work and work hard to get it. When they got here and found work, in the main, they taught their kids to be thankful for America and they raised their kids to be good citizens. That’s not what we are dealing with today.

More @ Revised History
That last paragraph is the one that win’s the Internets!  Sickly children, anchor babies, and MS13 veterans.  And people willing to come here at their governments behest to tax our health, welfare and legal systems.
I’ve said it before and will say it again.  Political Correctness IS killing The United States of America!
Remember the PSAs advertising the Alien Address Report Law (in the 50’s and 60’s) – that all legal aliens are required to report their address by a certain date, or be in violation and possibly deported?  Of course, I’m certain as there is no requirement for illegal aliens to report (not to mention probably a 5th Amendment self-incrimination thing).
Then alien became immigrant.  And the whole legal/illegal thing got lost in the shuffle.
Want to have an interesting conversation about immigration?  Speak with a LEGAL immigrant who got here LEGALLY, went through the process and finally obtained CITIZENSHIP the LEGAL way, over many years.  They weren’t given anything, they had to work for it.
And most of them deeply resent this proposed ‘waving of a scepter’ and suddenly you are here legally and on ‘the path’ to citizenship.
Is a burglar or home invader an unauthorized occupant?  No, they are a criminal, period.

Another ‘Special Interest’?

Australian judge says incest may no longer be a taboo

Via avordvet
Judge in Australia says incest may no longer be a taboo and the only reason it is criminal is potential birth abnormalities, which can be solved by abortion

A judge in Australia has been criticised after saying incest may no longer be a taboo and that the community may now accept consensual sex between adult siblings.
Judge Garry Neilson, from the district court in the state of New South Wales, likened incest to homosexuality, which was once regarded as criminal and “unnatural” but is now widely accepted.
He said incest was now only a crime because it may lead to abnormalities in offspring but this rationale was increasingly irrelevant because of the availability of contraception and abortion.
“A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now ‘available’, not having [a] sexual partner,” the judge said.
“If this was the 1950s and you had a jury of 12 men there, which is what you’d invariably have, they would say it’s unnatural for a man to be interested in another man or a man being interested in a boy.Those things have gone.”

I had some had concerns about multiple marriages following in the footsteps of gay marriage.  Some of those folks have surfaced judicially.  And the NAMBLA folks have also jumped on the bandwagon.
This is the the libertarian conundrum – if every human has rights, including minors, how much can the State infringe on those rights for the protection of all?

‘Corporate’ America ?

I’m a BIG believer in this country’s capitalist, free market system.  Have a problem with XX Company’s product/service?  Don’t use ‘em!  If they damaged you – SUE ‘em!  It’s the AMERICAN way!

Of course, this assumes (and you know what happens when you assume?) that everyone plays fair and by the rules…

It’s For The Children

They were CHILDREN . . .

Over here in the States we have been following every day the story of the kidnapped & murdered teens Eyal Yifrach, 19; Gilad Shaar, 16; and Naftali Frenkel, also 16 – it is horrific – words cannot express . . . our deepest and sincerest sympathies to their families, and the greater family of the State of Israel . . . S.L.(Sean Linneane)

REMEMBER Schwerner, Goodman and Chaney?

Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney are killed by a Ku Klux Klan lynch mob near Meridian, Mississippi. The three young civil rights workers were working to register black voters in Mississippi, thus inspiring the ire of the local Klan. The deaths of Schwerner and Goodman, white Northerners and members of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), caused a national outrage. (The KKK kills three civil rights activists – June 21, 1964)

For some reason, these two events connected for me.  Maybe it’s that they were young (The KKK murder victims were a little older than those in Israel).  Maybe it’s the senselessness of it all.

Violence in war is sanitized for our consumption; when young people die, though, when seen as individuals, it touches our hearts.

May God Bless all their memories.

Cloward & Piven On Crossing The Border

But they are escaping from violence and corruption for a better life.

The information below is taken from news sources. The aliens in these reports were all identified as being in the country illegally, and many of them had come into the hands of law enforcement agencies prior to the crime that is described below, but the alien was not deported or in some cases was deported but reentered the country.

These cases are listed as a demonstration that better prevention of illegal immigration is a public safety issue even though these cases are not representative of the illegal alien population in general. These cases refer to crimes other than terrorism.

May 2014 — Humberto Gonzalez, an illegal alien, was convicted in New Jersey of criminal assault and sentenced to 50 years in prison. The rape occurred in 2005 and Gonzalez was not identified until a DNA match was made following an arrest in Texas for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Gonzalez also had a criminal record in Louisiana and Arkansas. (Times of Trenton, May 9, 2014)

February 2014 — Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, an illegal alien from Mexico, was found guilty of two counts of a felony for failure to perform the duties of a driver and sentenced to three years of probation and 250 hours of community service. Garcia-Cisneros committed a hit-and-run that resulted in the death of two stepsisters, 6-year-old Anna Dieter-Eckerdt and 11-year-old Abigail Robinson. (Associated Press, Feb. 4, 2013)

January 2014 — Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon, aka Jay Hendrix, an Iraqi immigrant, was found guilty in Colorado on multiple counts of sexual assault. He faces a possible sentence of life in prison. Sarmad Fadhi “Levi” Mohammed, another Iraqi was earlier convicted for the same assault and sentenced to 16 years in prison. An additional three Iraqi immigrants involved in the assault have received misdemeanor convictions. (Colorado Gazette, January 21, 2014)

January 2014 — Modesto Osco, a Peruvian, pled guilty to indecent assault on a minor. He was sentenced in Pennsylvania to five months to two years in prison. (The Morning Call, January 6, 2014)

…and then there are the unwanted diseased illegal alien children that have been abandoned here.

The Border Patrol says they simply don’t have the resources.

Who was it who suggested to overtax the system until the communist benign overlords can magically appear and offer THE solution to the problem?

Oh, yeah, Cloward and Piven.

I wonder if this whole open borders thing is simply another cog in that wheel?  Nancy Pelosi says The United States and Mexico are simply the same people divided by a political border.

Of course, I don’t see her (millionairess that she is) taking home 5 or 10 or even one of those diseased children…

Using The System Against Them

Family Stumped By FIRED Live-In Nanny Who Won’t Leave!

And, because the homeowner won’t stand up to protect his home and family, he’s left with having a tenant he doesn’t want.

Reading this, I was reminded of my early days @ TMCCC… (cue harp music signifying a return to the days-of-yore…)

I had a fraud case wherein a credit card holder (an older, retired gentlemen) had become friends, then lovers, with a women he met in a park.  He asked her to move in with him, and suddenly it was she, her young daughter, some animals, and some friends as tenants.  And she set about using his credit cards and money without permission.  THEN, she waited for him to leave the house, had him charged with domestic abuse, and had an order-of-protection taken out against him!   He was no longer able to enter his own home!

And then she and her friends turned his retirement cottage into a meth factory.

But that was not the icing on the cake.  After years of legal wrangling, he finally was able to have them extricated from his home, and jailed.  Of course, the interior was trashed, and his furniture and property sold or destroyed.  Because she had used his credit cards fraudulently, he was told the best thing to do was to file bankruptcy to get out of the debt she had created.

But he could not…

SHE HAD FILED BANKRUPTCY USING HIS SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER!

Imagine trying to explain that to creditors, attorneys and law enforcement!

And you thought the movie Pacific Heights was harrowing!

F.N.C. Makes Me THINK

I like FNC…

NO, NOT the Fox News Channel – although I DO like it, too, on occasion.

I’m speaking of the blog Free North Carolina!

They sometimes have blog fare I view as incendiary, but, more often than not, they make me think differently on a specific issue – even if I continue to disagree with them on that very issue!

One of this Constitutional Republic’s tenets I wholeheartedly endorse is speedy justice.  I know, with the judicial bureaucracy, it doesn’t always seem so, however.

FNC did post a short video of one such event:

“Duck…And Cover!”

…or just duck…

An Oklahoma company has designed a bullet-resistant blanket that’s designed to protect children and teachers in the event of a school shooting.

An Oklahoma company has designed a bullet-resistant blanket that's designed to protect children and teachers in the event of a school shooting.

The Bodyguard Blanket, made by ProTecht, is a bulletproof 5/16-inch pad that the company says is made from the same materials used by the U.S. military.

Steve Walker, a podiatrist who conceptualized the blanket, toldThe Oklahoman that the idea came to him after two tragedies: the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the tornadoes in Oklahoma. He said the idea was to “stop that blunt-force trauma when that rubble is falling down on a child.”

The company estimates that the blanket can provide protection against 90% of all weapons that have been used in school shootings in the U.S.

The company estimates that the blanket can provide protection against 90% of all weapons that have been used in school shootings in the U.S.

The blanket has straps that can be fastened around users like a backpack. The lightweight pad is made of a high-density plastic used for ballistic armor. The material can also protect users from nails, shards of metal, and other sharp objects.

After testing the blanket at a shooting range, the makers said it provided protection against bullets from a 12-gauge buckshot, a .22-caliber, and a 9 mm, among others.

The $1,000 blankets are a cheaper alternative to tornado shelters, but its makers say they are better for school shootings. (says the manufacturer.)

HMMM…let me see…

$1000 per student (PLUS, they have to lug these things around!) versus hiring trained security personnel AND/OR TRAINING TEACHERS AND STAFF AND ARMING THEM!

I’m reminded of growing up during the Cold War, and the ubiquitous instructions for us to ‘duck and cover’ in case of a nuclear bomb attack.

And the lampooning by the 60’s college crowd of that practice, saying we should have put our heads between our legs and kiss our a**es goodbye!

(after yesterday’s ‘school shooting’ – aka a shooting which just happened to take place in a school – this was making the rounds – in addition to the usual calls for more ‘gun control laws’ – as though the kid yesterday hadn’t already violated numerous laws…THIS DOESN’T SOLVE THE PROBLEM – WHEN THESE CRIMES OCCUR, THE SCHOOLS CALL IN THE ONLY SOLUTION TO RESPOND – PEOPLE WITH GUNS!  TRAIN AND ARM TEACHERS AND STAFF!) - Guffaw

A story from AP Mobile:

Audit: State paid $12 million in health costs — for dead people

Cook County has long been ridiculed for allowing dead people cast votes, but the state may have just garnered a new distinction.
It paid $12 million in health care for people who were already dead – including in one case, for a person who had died in 1989.
A new financial audit released by Auditor General Bill Holland’s office on Thursday found that the Illinois Department of Health…

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
