Osama Was Right

Osama bin Laden was correct when he stated that the United States doesn’t have the stomach for war and that we would lose interest before long and quit. On this anniversary of 9/11 we have witnessed a retreat from Afghanistan that we didn’t like. Our President wanted a quick and complete withdrawal which he accomplished. Twenty years ago we as a people had developed a hatred for Muslims but today I sense a different attitude. At least from our leaders I sense a softening attitude, one of forgiveness and back pedaling.

The Muslim world has never been one to live amicably alongside the Christian world. I remember my grandfather who was born in Hungary 1876 told me stories about how the Hungarians always wound up driving the Ottomans out of Europe. They have not stopped trying. They now use a new approach using population growth s the weapon. In countries like France they are succeeding and they will succeed in the USA also. Muslims are not hung up on birth control and abortion as the caucasian world is. Their current plan is to migrate into a country and then to populate, populate, populate. They have control over their women and thus the poor lady’s cannot say boo about their plight. The males use their four wife limit to the fullest and populate, populate, and populate. Eventually, they will out number caucasians and take over peaceably.

Only the anxious Muslims need to go to war. They are too impatient to do it by population control. they would rather do it by subjugation. Thus we have the likes of ISIS, Taliban, and Al Queda to deal with. Their thrust is to take over by intimidation, killing, and war. It has taken us twenty years to forget the threat of 9/11 and the loss of so many lives, but we have. Even today, the anniversary day there is little being said about the Muslim threat to the world. In the meantime we continue to squander our wealth and resources trying to convince them to accept capitalism and democracy as the way. What we should have been doing, and should do in the future is to squander our resources on never ending bombs that will put an end to the entire scourge. In my gardening world we try not to use radical warfare against the evil weed, but there comes a time when we are forced into using Roundup as the method of eradication. Even with the use of chemicals like Roundup there is always a survivor. It may take a couple of years for it to happen but the survivors again begin spreading around the yard to take it over.

In my world I have learned that if I keep doing the same thing over and over again without a positive outcome that I have achieved the definition of insanity.

We have reached that point with Islam.

Rape Trees?

On the heels of yesterday’s post American Dirt, I received this short piece from a friend who lives in Apache Junction, Arizona. This is another side to yesterday’s story. Author Jeanine Cummins turned me sympathetic to the cause of the immigrants, but today another American author has turned me back into a curmudgeon who wants the borders closed and strict immigration laws enforced. Oh, and some new laws that will make it easier for the real immigrants to come across without harm.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

The media coverage is absent or so watered down that it seems ok.  

Thought I would take a few minutes and recap what is happening in Green Valley right now.  For those of you that have not been here, Green Valley is a community of about 25,000 people located about a half hour south of Tucson and ~35 miles north of the Mexican border.  It is a retirement community.  The joke is most people are eating supper at 4 p.m. and in bed by 7 p.m.  The crime rate is nil.  But we cannot say the same of Tucson.  Our county is PIMA. PIMA county has announced it will “invest” $2 million of OUR county taxpayer dollars to buy hotel rooms for illegals.  The Border Patrol is overwhelmed.  They are now building large tents on the local military base (Davis-Montham) which will “temporarily hold” 500 illegals under one tent. Border Patrol is not testing for covid and not vaccinating the illegals they catch; which is opposite of what some bureaucrats are stating on the news channels. 

Border Patrol estimates they are catching 7/10 illegals crossing; but as they say- “we really don’t know”. This past week in Green Valley: 

1.  We live about a quarter mile from the open desert on the south and west side of Green Valley.  A Border Patrol helicopter was chasing illegals at 3 a.m. with search lights and a ground crew last week about a half mile from our house in the open desert.  

 2.  PIMA Community College (PCC) is also located on the west side of Green Valley and “butts up” to the open desert.  Last week Border Patrol tried to corral an estimated 200 illegals walking by PCC through the desert.  When Border Patrol arrived, the ~200 illegals fled in different directions. 

3.  Golfers reported a few days ago (on the golf course we live on)- that 5 illegals were literally running down the middle of a green fairway attempting to evade Border Patrol who were in pursuit with their pick-up trucks.  Border Patrol stopped their trucks and asked the golfers for their golf carts to continue pursuit.  When the 5 illegals (young men) saw Border Patrol now chasing them in golf carts they ALL dropped their back packs and continued running.  Another Border Patrol Agent was filming this and grabbed yet another golf cart to secure the 5 back packs.  What did he find?  The back packs were full of hand guns, extra clips, and ammo.  They did catch and arrest all 5 illegals.  Came to find out they were “really bad hombres” with criminal records. 

Nobody has been hurt and property damage has not happened (yet) in Green Valley; but not so in Tucson. Local news (including our little Green Valley newspaper) choose not to share these real life stories. Where is the honesty in our press? Today, Marguerite and I cleaned out our closets and took a few bags of clothes over to a donation station in Green Valley. A group of citizens were on a major street intersection waving American Flag(s), a Trump flag, and holding signs asking WHERE is Biden and Kamala to address their decision of relaxing our border protections? Good question. Perhaps the local press WILL cover this “violent mob- filled with right wing, flag waving, racist, white supremacists”?

This is real folks. Since early February things have really changed- we are being overwhelmed with illegals from multiple countries. Unfortunately within these groups are child molesters, child traffickers, criminals, rape trees with panties as trophies being displayed in the desert, dead bodies in the desert, weapons, drugs, covid/other diseases?; resulting in our county tax payer money being pissed away, tent cities being built with federal tax payer dollars, local religious organizations are overwhelmed, etc. Thought you would want to know the truth and the seriousness of this situation- “from a snowbird local”. We are heading back to Wisconsin in a couple of weeks to enjoy late spring/summer/fall…good timing.

Miscellaneous Rambling

Today, I went into a mild shock as I tried to stuff a fully assembled winter coat box into my car for delivery. The box didn’t fit, and I had to disassemble it to make it go into the back seat. Now I have to expand the box and tape it at each location that I deliver to.  A minor irritation, but an irritation no less. 

The morning was beautiful sunny blue-sky-day which made me feel really upbeat. I quickly made a KETO omelet with spinach, scallions, and sundried tomatoes accompanied with three slices of gypsy style smoked bacon, and two slices of KETO toast smothered in butter.

After breakfast I read the mail, and then prepped for a walk. The plan was to walk to the pharmacy, to pick up a prescription, then to the mailbox to drop a letter, and finally to the coffee shop for a latte.  The prescription failed, my doctor did not approve a refill, I had to make an appointment for a blood test and an office visit before he would. Onward to the drop box with the letter and for the latte. I arrived home after two hours, and proceeded to assemble the box I grumbled about above. 

I spent a long afternoon surfing the net for information on immigration laws. One of my friends is living here on an expired visa, and needs help to get legal again. I didn’t find anything very promising. I don’t know how all the people who come in here illegally actually get to stay, much less to sign up for bennies. All the law I found is pretty simple, and seems to be iron clad on how to handle illegals. I’m positive that If I try to help this person that I will wind up in jail for five years and he will be deported.

Immigration word cloud concept isolated on white

My daughter called me this afternoon to tell me that her daughter (my grand-daughter) received notification that she was placed on the National Honor Society. Proud mama that she is she couldn’t wait to make a braggadocios phone call to let her pride show. She is one of my favorites so I am as proud as can be of her accomplishment. She did it while hunkered down and forced to attend classes on the internet.

After this post I will settle into my usual evening routine of five hours of non-stop TV. I found a new series which I have been avoiding for reasons unknown to me. It is titled Hunters, and stars Al Pacino. He is a former prisoner of a Nazi camp who escaped being gassed by his captors. He is currently hunting down escaped Nazis from WW-2 living within the USA. I found the first episode fascinating, and will watch it until every damned Nazi is hunted down and exterminated. 

Another movie title caught my eye and I latched onto that too; Moondance Alexander. It turned out to be a horse story about a young girl shunned by her friends who finds a horse while delivering groceries after school on her bicycle. It turns out it was filmed in Calgary, Canada home of the Heartland series my favorite horse opera too date. I must have seen ten movies in the last month all with the same theme, and all filmed in the same location with titles that lure me in. 

It is also time for me to call my long-lost son from the Lone Star State. Our conversation will easily last an hour or two as we share Trump stories.       

The Odds Are In Our Favor

This past week has been outstanding weather wise. I have fallen in love with fall. Whenever the temperatures are in the seventies and the days are sunny, I am in love again. On Friday morning I awoke early and dressed for a chilly day. My Lions club was staining a park playground called Fort Frankfort. The weather called for sixty , but it was in the fifties when I dressed in layers for the day. Thank God I layered. By eight-thirty I was peeling and by nine I was in my tee shirt. The following day I dressed lighter and the weather was what I expected the day before. We had a strong wind and the temp didn’t get to be sixty until almost noon. I wished I had my yesterday clothes. Friday we had a total of seven volunteers and Saturday we signed in three times as many. The job went faster and we were putting on finishing touches by eleven.

Frankfort is a successful little town because of it’s volunteers. Fort Frankfort was funded and built by the hands of volunteers. For the past forty years we have run a successful Craft Fair every Labor Day weekend all managed and staffed by volunteers. The craft fair peaked at a half million visitors in 2019, in 2020 it peaked at zero. The volunteers got a surprise week end off.

The activity of the weekend took my mind off of the fruitless rioting of communist inspired mobs in and around the country. Chicago continues to log forty-plus shooting injuries every week-end with at least ten shots connecting and killing the target. We often challenge the daily Iraq war death tolls. Our police force can be defunded just because they are not working very hard at reducing the senseless shootings. I really don’t blame them. Any attempt by them to interfere with gang activities would no doubt raise a huge outcry from the political stem of government. I would rather we defund the Aldermen and the city Administration than the police. The police often stop bullets, Alderman do not stop anything except hands extended with cash.

The headlines today are exposing Trump’s tax returns, and I am not surprised that he is being found to be within his legal rights to take lawful deductions. I suspected as much, but the communist party needs to make big news about nothing. The next announcement will be made by the Attorney General’s office to report findings of the Durham investigation.

I just wish the government would begin doing what we elect them to do and that is to govern the country. Instead they talk themselves into believing that their sole role is to oversee the President’ s activities. In the meantime they themselves are guilty as sin on may matters but deny any involvement or wrong doing. They are the classical cartoon of the fox guarding the hen house.

I propose that we initiate a new law forbidding politicians to get involved with anything outside of writing laws that will better the country, repealing laws that do not work, and improving laws that do. Instead we have laws which have never been used being resurrected to take advantage of a situation that might resemble the original situation that the law was originally written for two hundred years ago. Who in the hell remembers all the vague old laws?

I am all in favor of improving our immigration laws. We have ignored the laws for so many years that we have created a crisis condition in the country. I normally wouldn’t care, but in the past five years I have become acquainted with a number of fine people who came into this country for the purpose of making a better life for themselves. If they had only arrived five years ago, I would still be taking a hard line on them friends or not. They have however been residing here for well over twenty years. They brought toddlers with them. These kids have gone to our schools, their parents have worked for our companies or for us, and have been model citizens. They do not pay taxes, they do not vote, they do not have social security numbers, and therefore they don’t get any of the fringe benefits we accuse them of taking from us. Within their group however is a larger faction that are using counterfeit or stolen SSN’s and can and do use every benefit it can get for them. Many of these people make less than the declared poverty level salary and thus file income tax forms to get a giant bonus tax return every year. Of course the newer immigrants all play that system that gets them the bennies.

How are we to deal with this matter? Do we get tough and deport twenty plus million citizens? I don’t think so, although the laws they are living under say we should be doing that.

In the mean-time we have one party of government pandering for open borders and free passage between countries such that the border areas would be inhabited by a of blend of people from several countries. For instance, Mexicans living on the U.S. side to get jobs, and Americans living on the Mexican side to take advantage of a lower cost of living, no taxes, etc. What no one is thinking about is how long this happy arrangement would work before the blended area extends so far into the country that neither Mexico or the United States of America exists any more.

What this stupid open border policy leaves out is mention of people crossing through Mexico and Canada to take advantage of the lack of borders. At the same time those people landing at airports coming from South America, Europe, Asia, are held to the immigration rules of years ago. The whole thing is a giant quagmire that will only get messier as the Leftists gain more power. When will they realize that the people will rise against them? The odds are that three hundred and forty million people railing against the five hundred and thirty five will prevail.

Kenneth Is A Man’s Name

TV IS No Longer Channels 2, 5, 7, 9, and 11 Anymore.

Finally, I got an answer from COMCAST about why my Amazon Prime Video service is not responding. After umpteen phone calls and chats with service advisors I was transferred to the Advanced Troubleshooting group. Within 48 hours they had an answer, a lame one, but at least it was an answer. It seems that Comcast has the same problem that I am experiencing across the country. Why in the hell didn’t they just alert their customers to the fact? Instead I have spent hundreds of hours over the past several months trying to get the stupid service to work. Of course COMCAST apologized and agreed to discount the months I had crappy service.

I asked them when they will have this nationwide outage fixed, their best guess is September 23 at 2:47 pm. They haven’t been able to fix the damn problem for months but they can tell me to the minute when it will be corrected, B.S. I felt sorry for the lady who was speaking to me for having to bear the message. Her name is Kenneth and I appreciate her ability to speak flawless English with great diction. Kenneth spoke to me from an island in the South Pacific near Singapore. Hiring her is one good thing COMCAST was able to do.

In the meantime, what I have discovered on my own is that the problem is weird. I have three TV’s spread around my house. I watch two of them and the third sits in the guest room waiting the arrival of a guest. Of course the TV in the guest room works flawlessly and the one I watch (50 inch screen with LCD display and high definition) is the most troublesome. Last night I took to watching TV in the guest room. I signed the guest register and the land lord allowed me to do that. What I have been doing is sitting in the living room with a laptop computer balanced on my knees to watch my Prime Video program over the internet. The pc has a high def screen but the sound is crappy.

My latest find is a program called Tin Star. Filmed in Canada near the Rockies in a town called Little Big Bear. The premise of the story is that an English policeman and his family(wife, teen daughter and six year old son) emigrate to Canada to escape all the violence they have in their homeland. In the very first episode a strange man dressed in black and wearing a face mask stops them in the road as they are driving to their new home, he raises a gun and shoots at the policeman, he misses the cop but kills the cop’s son, and injures his wife. Welcome to North America. The rest of the story revolves around how the cop goes about seeking revenge for his son’s murder. To make the story more interesting the writers make the cop an alcoholic, and make the demon in town a huge oil company that is extracting oil from Canada’s oil-sand reserves. In subsequent episodes the cop’s alcoholism takes over, and he does stranger things than the villains who tried to kill him.

I like the program because it is loaded with beautiful scenes of Canada, lots of mystery, sex, crime, murder, and intrigue. I hate the program because glamorizes sex, crime, and murder.

And that is all I want to say about that.
