Bloody Immigration

Roman fighting Gauls

If ever there was a story of immigration The Eagles Brood in the Camulod Chronicles series of books I am currently reading describes it in detail. The era was 300-500 A.D. and the story takes place in what is now known as England. In those  years the land belonged to the Roman Empire. As all empires go, the politicians got greedy and the tax money lined their pockets instead of paying their armies to keep law, and order in the territories. Reading about the society of that era is much like reading about our own society today. Our politicians all prosper while our status in the world, and even at home suffers. Masses of people all looking to get a piece of our heavenly land flock across the borders to flee oppression in their native lands.

One huge difference between 400 A.D. and 2018 A.D. is that immigrants aren’t being led by egomaniacal leaders who do not want land alone, but power as well. A second difference is in the way immigrants fought wars. Land was won by the group that could slay the weaker one. Literally, battles ended when there were no more soldiers of the other side to kill. Bodies piled up every where, wounded were triaged into the savable and those to be put out of their misery. WOW!

The author, Jack Whyte has not let me down yet, and the story continues for another four volumes. His characters are strong and human. Some are pure evil and desperate for control. The family blood line is what drives his narrative, and at this point he is in the fourth generation.

The historical period is fascinating, and Jack Whyte is a master historian of the time.  His dialog, description of living conditions, and customs makes the reader become one of the characters.

Some of this you have seen here before, but rather than waste my life trying to figure out what I have seen before I’m sending it all. The new stuff is really funny.

 I read that 4,153,237 people got married last year. Not to cause any trouble, but shouldn’t that be an even number?
 
 I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.
 
 When wearing a bikini, women reveal 90% of their body. Men are so polite they only look at the covered parts.
 
♦Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?
 
 America is a country which produces citizens who will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won’t cross the street to vote.
 
 You know that tingly little feeling you get when you love someone? That’s your common sense leaving your body.
 
 Did you know that dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish?
 
 My therapist says I have a preoccupation with vengeance. We’ll see about that..
 
 I think my neighbor is stalking me as she’s been Googling my name on her computer. I saw it through my telescope last night.
 
 Money talks .. but all mine ever says is good-bye.
 
 You’re not fat, you’re just easier to see.
 
 If you think nobody cares whether you’re alive, try missing a couple of payments.
 
 I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters. Do they just give you a bra and say, “Here, fill this out?”
 
 My therapist said that my narcissism causes me to misread social situations. I’m pretty sure she was hitting on me.
 
 My 60 year kindergarten reunion is coming up soon and I’m worried about the 175 pounds I’ve gained since then.
 
 Denny’s has a slogan, “If it’s your birthday, the meal is on us.” If you’re in Denny’s and it’s your birthday, your life sucks!
 
 The pharmacist asked me my birth date again today. I’m pretty sure she’s going to get me something.
 
 The location of your mailbox shows you how far away from your house you can go in a robe before you start looking like a mental patient.

 Money can’t buy happiness, but it keeps the kids in touch!
 
 The reason Mayberry was so peaceful and quiet was because nobody was married. Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney, Floyd, Howard, Goober, Gomer, Sam, Earnest T Bass, Helen, Thelma Lou, Clara and, of course, Opie were all single. The only married person was Otis, and he stayed drunk.
