I Have To Give Up Reading

A year ago I read a book titled Under A Flaming Sky, The Great Hinkley Firestorm of 1894. It was a story about a huge forest fire that caught a Minnesota town by surprise and many people perished. I just finished a book titled The Children’s Blizzard which tells the story of a perfect storm that catches a North Dakota town by surprise and freezes over two hundred people to death. Both stories are about immigrant families who homesteaded to make a better life for themselves. In between these two stories I read The Coyote’s Bicycle another story about immigration and the hardship of sneaking over the border to find a better life for the sneakers. None of these immigrants considered for a moment to leave their difficult life to return to controlling governments, poverty, and hunger. Just as these poor souls never once thought about moving back to their fatherland I never thought these books were about immigrants.

Back in the eighteen hundreds when America was still young and under populated  a new invention called railroads had just completed major investments in laying rail into the newly acquired territories west of the Mississippi River. Without people to serve the railroads would not survive. They advertised in foreign countries about the generous homestead policy of the United States. Come stake out your claim and receive one hundred and sixty acres of land free. For people who lived on a Lord’s estate without any rights to the land this was a message from heaven. People left countries like Norway, and Sweden on the promise of free land. They used their entire savings to make the trip by boat and then by train if they had the money. Most used wagons and oxen to wend the way west to the Minnesota and the Dakotas. They settled in prairies of flat land thinking how easy it would be to farm. They didn’t find trees from which to make homes so they made shelter using sod. Only after they had established their claims and began farming with seed they brought from Europe were they able to think about building proper houses of wood.

The United State’s liberal immigration policy encouraged people to come and settle. Only after the Civil war did the country begin to pass laws restricting immigration. Poor economic conditions caused the States and the Federal government to restrict certain labor groups. Since then many more reforms have been invented to correct immigration for various reasons. Many of the reasons concerned security such as during the WW’s and 9-11.

The USA has good immigration policy and existing laws., but they are being undermined by internal organizations who wish to force feed the country their liberal agenda. New policies like open borders which challenge the sovereignty of the nation, or the drive to become Europeanized by adopting Europe’s screwy concept of achieving diversity by hoping people of many different origins will assimilate into the general population without a natural desire to do so. It is no secret that Europe worships the USA and our unique blend of people’s which makes us so distinctive. Europe opened its borders and standardized their money thinking the people would thereby become one. People in our country want to be more like Europe but we already have open borders between our states, standard currency, a standard language, an economy that fuels the world, and assimilation. Europe can only dream about becoming like the USA. We are Illinoisans, New Yorker’s, Floridians, Texans, etc. but at the same time we are also Americans. In Europe the discreet countries all have unique cultures, unique languages, centuries old discreet histories, and in a few of those countries they have a penchant for laws. They have a hunger for socialism believing in equal outcomes for all. Many, like France and Spain have had communist governments. The Eastern bloc countries were all under socialist rule for seventy years. Why in the hell would we want to be like them can only be answered by saying there are people in this country that are traitors to liberty. The sadness of this is that there are millions of these traitors who claim to love our country and only want to make it a better place to live like Norway or Sweden. Places that have a 75% tax and still have trouble making thier beautiful system work. If we were to deport all of these traitorous people, and replace them with people who currently live in depressed countries and seriously desire to come to the USA, we would be the number one country on the planet in every category.

Unfortunately, we will never deport the losers because our Constitution guarantees freedom for all. This means the bad guys who preach evil are free to do so. Those who practice religions totally contrary to our faiths are free to do so. It means people who practice Progressivism are free to do so. It also means that those of us who fear our country will lose to the many factions can never rest from fighting to keep freedom and liberty.

 

Goodbye Old Friend

If you have ever lived with someone or something for a long, long time you will understand the meaning of the phrase “parting is such sweet sorrow.”  I have recently parted with an old friend. I spent considerable time with him over the past four weeks and have learned immensely. I fell in love with his words, and images. His country is one in which I would live if I had to live life over. There is but one problem with living with him in this land I would have to be racist. This country is very friendly to those who are not black, Mexican, or Indian.

a2d9d2f46047729b43bc24e4af9371e4.jpg

The friend I speak of is a novel titled “Texas” by James Michener. One thousand ninety-six pages long I estimate it to be filled with six hundred sixty-thousand words, or the equivalent of seven ordinary novels it was a joy to read. This is the eleventh Michener book I have read, and each has been engrossing. Although he plans them similarly reading one or two books will not give away his secret to success. If I had to tell you which is my favorite there is no argument it is his first novel “Tales of the South Pacific.” Out of the forty-one titles he wrote I read six, and they are jumbo novels of a thousand pages. I loved each and every page of his writing and the historical perspective.

Texas gave me a new  perspective on Mexico, Mexicans, illegal border crossings and the reasons why our country is now experiencing the difficulty of illegal immigration. I won’t try to explain it all here I’ll let you read this book and learn from it yourself. Did it change my mind about anything? Nope. I still believe, and know, that Mexicans are great workers, good family people, and hungry for a better life. I also still believe that the borders of the United States are set, and define where the US ends and Mexico begins. I also believe in the sovereignty of our nation,  our system of laws, our economic system, and politics.

There is within the United States a group of people who are firmly committed to return land stretching from Los Angeles to Santa Fe, once a remote part of Mexico, to their origins. These people believe that there should be a section between the two countries where there exists a population that speaks two languages, but the principal one being Spanish. They believe kids should be taught in Spanish until they are finished with grammar school. They believe that this population should have dual citizenships with free movement between the two separate countries. They believe both sets of laws should be maintained.

The Supreme court ruled unanimously to extend bi-lingual schooling (Lau vs Nichols) based on the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Schools all across America have been working feverishly to teach in multiple languages in order to get government money. Quite frankly, I don’t think the government money is worth having to teach multiple languages. Think about that, schools have to hire multi-lingual teachers or provide classes with a teacher who knows the language of the child. What if the school is unlucky enough to have kids from Mexico, China, Pakistan, Sudan, Mongolia, Hungary and Belarus. What would you do? I know what I would do, I’d forget the ruling, and let the kids fend for themselves, they would learn English within a year like my brother did, or like the kids of every immigrant who ever came to these shores. Instead we have school systems that bend over backwards to get those government dollars. If we need to correct this terrible system we will have to amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Going a bit further off my original rant, I can say that I have never met a Mexican I didn’t like, but I have met a bunch of politicians who are just plain assholes who live off the government tit.

Maybe the time has come that the United States of America should reboot. When a computer  goes crazy, the first thing we do is shut it down to re-boot it. This usually resets the software to its original settings, and clears out extraneous garbage until things work again. Perhaps we need to shut down the government and restart with the simple settings we had when the Constitution was adopted.

I guess I can make the point that the value of reading a book like Texas is that it is thought-provoking and certainly educational. I made a big deal about only one of a thousand points that exist in this narrative. I could make a lifetime of blog posts about ideas that came to me from Michener’s work.

Circular Evolution

Immigration is a touchy issue. I am reading a book titled Texas which chronicles the history of Mexico and Texas. I am at the section of the book which deals with Indians. In the beginning Indians owned North America, but they were invaded by immigrants from all sides. White people looking to live free came from all over Europe to settle in a place where there was no Prince or King to tell them how to live their lives. Land was plentiful and free. At first the Indians allowed them to live with them, but then the whites came in greater numbers, and they began forcing the Indians out of their territories. As time went on more and more people came to North America to settle in a free land. Indians were forced westward out of their land. They resented it and fought back committing terrible atrocities as was their custom. They fought as Indians knew to fight. The whites thought the Indians were being savage. They were merely practicing their customs.

After Texas separated from Mexico and became a state there was a problem with Comanche Indians. The Comanches had been moved from place to place several times and they were pissed to have to move again. They refused to do so without a fight Comanche style. Whites flooded into Texas from the north and east. Mexicans came in from the south.  It was a Comanche custom to kill pioneers or anyone who infringed on their lands. They had a notion that to be killed by a Comanche was an honorable death, therefore, a pioneer who died a very slow death by torture made it even more honorable. This custom did not bide well with white people. Another custom was to kill the pioneer family except for one, usually a young girl or woman. They then used the white girl in negotiations with the white man, The problem was how they treated her before the negotiations. The opportunity for negotiations with the whites could take years to come about. In the meantime the girl was a sex slave to the young bucks of the tribe. Another custom was to torture the sex slave by slowly burning their ears and nose off.

As I read this horrible treatment a thought came to mind. At this point in history we, meaning you and me, are the current Indians of the United States. We are being invaded by immigrants namely Hispanics, Asians, and Muslims. These people also have strange cultures and customs. The Muslims probably have the most of any, like be-heading, stoning, genital mutilation, honor killing, and many more.  At this point in history we probably don’t have much to worry about, but as the immigrant numbers increase and the number of communities we refer to as no-go zones grows, the foreign cultural practices will become more openly practiced. Will it ever come to the point of us having to annihilate the source of the trouble? I don’t know, and won’t live long enough to find out, but my take on the matter is that the problem is best avoided by keeping the influx of migrants to a trickle. Once the population of people with strange cultures grows beyond what we can control the problem becomes huge.

Well, you say, we have laws to keep people from walking all over us.  What if one of the strange cultural differences is a set of laws they believe over ride all the laws we have on the books? Sharia law is such a system. Ultimately, when a migrant population that won’t assimilate reaches a point they can move the home team out, they will insist on imposing their will upon the others. The battle that ensues will be called genocide by both sides. If the home team loses we will have completed a full circle of evolution from living in a closed society to living free, and revert back to a closed society.

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.

Immigration By Another Route

Iraq Safer Than Sweden?

A BATTLE-hardened Swedish war correspondent says she fears for her country as her home city of Stockholm continues to be plagued by violence. http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/776560/Sweden-Riots-European-Migrant-Crisis-Rape-War-Iraq

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.

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
