Just Thinkin’

BG-Banner-Excerpt-Coyotes-Bicycle-copy.jpg

A few weeks ago I re-blogged a post about a new book titled The Coyote’s Bicycle by Kimball Taylor. Being a bicycle nut, I decided to read the story. I am glad I did. The Coyote’s Bicycle is a piece of history from the US-Mexican border town of Tijuana. The story is fascinating because it chronicles the life of a young boy who was abandoned by his parents. The parents and three siblings left their youngest behind to care for an aging grandfather while they escaped to San Diego for a better life.

The grandfather dies, and the kid who is a young teen has to fend for himself. Eventually, he migrates to Tijuana, Mexico. There, he lives on the street watching the actions of the many different kinds of people in the town. He winds up befriending a man who is in the business of escorting Mexicans across the border for cash. He studies the operation and begins to formulate his own ideas.

The border along this section has multiple fences, ground sensors, and a heavy concentration of border patrol people continuously scanning  the border. In spite of all the fences, and the hi-tech sensors people are crossing into the USA illegally by the thousands. There is always a way to beat the many ploys of the USA trying to deter starving people from finding a better life.

What bothered me about this story is the amount of money these people pay to get into the US. As an example this kid who was left to his own devices invented a system and an organization that made him into a multi-millionaire. Why wouldn’t the Mexican and the US governments capitalize on this cash to invent an improved system that would allow the migration to occur legally? Why is it always so complicated when it comes to the rules it takes to allow people into the country?

In between chapters of the story the author adds pieces of history like the southern border problem began in 1962 when the temporary law written to allow a free flow of migrant workers into the country ended. The law President Eisenhower initiated was never renewed to allow the practices to continue. Meanwhile, the farmers were still growing crops and needed help, they continued to hire and never asked questions, and the workers kept coming. In other chapters he covers the migration of old tires, used bicycles, and training camps for the military.

Imagine how simple life would be had Congress taken the opportunity to revise and renew that law. Instead they continued to tamper with social programs to care for the immigrants who arrive here undocumented.

Getting back to the story. The kid studies the border situation by watching and listening to people talk. He learns that there are hi-tech sensors buried in the ground along the fences. They easily detect the clomping of feet walking across. He learns that there are many canyons crossing the border where it is too hard to build a fence. The canyons present a free shot across. He did his homework. Eventually, he builds enough nerve to begin his own business to get people across. He gives every person he transports a bicycle to ride across, and to beat the sensors. The bikes shorten the time it takes to get his customers from the border to a pickup point further in. The bikes are not detected by the sensors thus avoiding a signal to the Border Patrol.

I loved this story, it gave me a new perspective on the hardships of the people crossing over. They lead lives of desperation in their towns, and the Central American countries they come from. I began wishing there was some more humane way to get these people help. I am sure there is.

The one thing this stories makes clear is that building a wall will not deter the flow of hungry people into the USA. They will only use their God-given intellect to engineer new ways to make things happen, be they tunnels, or coyotes with new schemes to smuggle them in. There are enough dollars involved to incentivize almost anything.

Iraq Safer Than Sweden?

PSA-170302-Travel Alert

This is a very eye opening demonstration of Muslims peacefully practicing their religion in Paris. I wonder why this wasn’t on the evening news.

As I do most times, I checked this out to determine why I hadn’t seen it on the news. I found an interesting SNOPES article declaring the video false. Read it for yourself and decide if SNOPES is sweeping this video under the rug.

http://www.snopes.com/paris-muslim-siege-false/

The government did not declare war, nor did the media, nor did anyone except the producer of this video. Does it look like a war? Yes. Does it look like Muslims? Yes, Did a cop get shot in the belly? Yes. Did the rioters build a barricade? Yes. Did the barricade prevent the ambulance from getting to the cop? Yes. Did the rioters set fire to vehicles and buildings? Yes.

Unless the cop got shot by friendly fire I’d have to say that both sides were shooting. The cops were shooting water cannons and tear gas, the bad guys were shooting bullets.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it isn’t a duck when SNOPES examines the facts.

BREAKING NEWS

PRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCES SALE OF CALIFORNIA TO MEXICO

WASHINGTON (AP) – at 12:15 PM

Today President Trump disclosed that he has reached an agreement with Enrique Pena Nieto, President of Mexico, which provides for the sale of substantially all of the State of California to the country of Mexico.
President Trump noted that this deal, which he claims “is his largest real estate deal ever,” is a win-win for everyone involved. One of the benefits he says he will highlight during a prime time address from the oval office later this evening, will include using the proceeds received by the US from Mexico to:

1) pay for the Wall (fulfilling yet another campaign promise), a wall which will now include the length of the eastern border of California;

2) fund all the infrastructure spending in the remaining 49 states;

3) and pay to relocate the 67 Republicans that currently reside in California.

He also noted that Federal money saved from the reduction of California citizens on US social programs will allow those social programs to be cash positive in less than 3 years.

Mexican President Nieto announced that he has already introduced a bill to the Mexican Congress asking to change his country’s name to MexiCal.

Other benefits President Trump intends to discuss during this evening’s prime time address include: California will now be able to act as a sanctuary state within MexiCal noting that there is much more room for the refugees who will find the climate in the State of California more desirable than the climate in US cities such as NYC, Detroit or Chicago.

The elimination of the existing border between Mexico and California will allow drugs to flow more freely between Mexico and the users in Hollywood. Drug tunnel diggers at the Tijuana border will now be able to use their skills to dig tunnels under Los Angeles to help ease congestion in that city and allow rioters to move about the city’s universities more freely.

The U.S. taxpayer will no longer be on the hook for any future disaster relief required once the next megaquake hits California.

The space in the U.S. Capitol and other DC buildings vacated by representatives of California will be fumigated and turned into “time-out rooms” for the press as well as Liberty Centers where US citizens can meet with their congressmen to discuss the pursuit of economic freedom.

Nancy Pelosi released a statement stating that she looks forward to making the Mexican President’s life miserable and prefers the year round weather in Mexico City to that of DC. Her office has already announced a schedule of fund raising activities for what is believed to be an upcoming campaign to run for President of MexiCal.

Papers released along with Trump’s statement reveal that a newly incorporated real estate company, pmurT, Inc., which was intimately involved in the deal discussions, will receive a broker fee of $25 billion on the California sale. An anonymous pmurT, Inc. representative has revealed that the profits on the deal are HUGE and will be used to purchase, develop and convert all abandoned US Federal facilities in California into special high end retreats and resorts which will assist California residents with managing their euphoria and transition into the nanny state they have so long desired to be.

The exact northern border of the new MexiCal is still under negotiation. Apparently the White House is concerned that certain members of congress may be unwilling to give up California’s wine country, and are suggesting that the northern border align with the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge.

California residents will be issued special blue cards to cross the border into the US so that the total number of California liberals entering the US can be tracked and at any point in time not exceed predetermined levels.
Residents that remain in California after the effective date of the sale will not be allowed to seek refugee status in the US in the future.

Mexican President Nieto stated he is thrilled with the deal and is looking forward to declaring Spanish the national language for his newly acquired territory and opening SSL (Spanish as a second language) schools throughout California.
He also noted that funding for the transaction would come from the Mexican drug cartels, which have agreed to provide low interest loans to Mexico so long as they are allowed to move their cash out of Switzerland and the Cayman Islands back into Mexico tax free.
He also said he considers the fact that a Disney park will now be located within his country an added bonus.

White House representatives refused to confirm rumors that a similar deal was in the works for the sale of Northeastern states from NY through Maine, to Canada.

President Trump wrapped up his statement stating, “This deal is HUGE and will help make America, albeit a little smaller, great again.”

No Mexico, You Belong To Spain

Reading news headlines is causing me to suffer anxiety attacks. The most recent one is a quote from someone named Jorge Ramos. I judge by his name he is hispanic. He is good at inciting hispanic gang members who have infiltrated the USA to riot and protest. His main claim is that the USA belongs to Mexico. I believe at one time a great part of North America did belong to a number of Indian tribes like Aztecs and Incas, but they lost the territory to the Spanish in 1521. during the next 289 years the Spaniards subjugated the Aztecs, Inca, and Mayan tribes with severe degrees of brutality to give them a language, culture, customs, and a new DNA.

Eventually, a guy by the name of Napoleon decided he wanted to invade Spain and claim it for France. The Spanish didn’t want to be kicked out of their home digs and needed cash to fight them off. At that same point in history, the Mexicans were all shouting “we can’t stand it anymore” and decided to wage war for independence from Spain. The Spaniards who after putting up with these ungrateful natives for so many years were only too happy to give them their independence in year 1810 by pretending to lose a war of revolution.

Since then the Mexicans have been struggling with establishing a government that can work for all their people. It works really great for anyone who is rich, but if you were born a poor man you are destined to remain poor. Mexico is a rich country and has a very good economy, and there is not reason in the world that they should ignore the millions of poor people they have by pretending they belong to the USA.

About thirty-six years later the natives of Texas were unhappy with conditions and decided to push the Mexican army out of their territory. A brave bunch of these fighters made a grand stand at a place called the Alamo. Later, the USA chased their sorry asses out of Texas all the way to Mexico City. The USA could by right own all of Mexico down to their capital city. Our stupid leaders at the time didn’t want all of Mexico. Instead of just occupying the country and encouraging migration into those lands they opted to draw a line along the Rio Grande river, and what is now our infamously contested border fence. Just to show them what good sports we are, we retreated from Mexico city and gave them back all the land from Mexico City north to the Rio Grande. We paid them fifteen million dollars for the land we wanted from them. They accepted the payment. The USA was not obligated to pay them one red cent, and that is the end of the argument. All of this is spelled out in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

If Jorge and his gang want to claim something he should pick on Spain. They are the ones who made him a half-breed, and decimated their cherished land. I have a stinking feeling that if California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas were empty of people, business, and movie stars the Mexicans would be happy to leave the territory to the gringos of the USA. It is not the land they want, it is the wealth of the people in these states that they claim is theirs. Without this wealth the land is still the same dry ass desert their Aztec, Mayan, and Inca ancestors abandoned centuries ago.

My advice to Jorge; work on your government to make things better for your people. The USA is not Mexico, and Mexico does not own the USA.

Here is a suggestion. Draw up a new border around Mexico City and the very rich states where all the US business operates to form a downsized Mexico, and give the USA everything else. My guess is that within fifty years your downsized Mexico will be engulfed by happy and prosperous American citizens who live free in an Exceptional Country.

 

Assimilation???

This video is somewhat alarming, but not unusual for new immigrants coming into the country. I live in Chicago and over the past seventy years I have seen neighborhoods similar to this one in Dearborn with some exceptions. The signage was in Polish, Italian, German, and most recently Mexican. People who come into our country need to live near other people of their own nationality. Think about it, if you were suddenly dropped into an area of Iraq and had to learn the language, read the strange alphabet, assimilate into their culture how would you like it. Most likely, you would want to live in there American village with all the other Americans. Do you think the Iraqi’s would welcome you with open arms? Most likely, they would be hollering and screaming at you to get the hell out. Also not an easy thing to take. Assimilation takes time, learning a new language takes time, learning your way around the block takes time, finding food you can eat all takes an effort. None of it is easy.

What seems to be different with the Muslim immigrant is an Imam preaching not to assimilate. All of the kids I went to school with were pushed by their parents to learn the language, and to learn in school. My brother learned to speak English in grammar school. My sister and I learned from him, my parents learned from us, and from English classes for immigrants. There wasn’t a single nationality that harbored a hatred for America. Every Mexican I know is a friend. I love them as a people. They love America, they learn the language, they work hard, and they want to be your friend.

I would love to be alive a hundred years from now to see just how this new world works out.

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women
