Open Borders?

What is an open border? Just what does that term mean? I just compared the area of Europe to the United States, and Europe is just slightly larger in area than the USA.

(United States is 9,833,000 square kilometers while Europe is 10,180,000 square kilometers—however, European countries are closer in size to eastern states in America (which are smaller and closer together than western states).

A few years ago, in the 1990’s my wife Barb and I took a trip to Europe and toured Prague, Salzburg, Munich, and Frankfurt. Prague was still in the Soviet Union and when we crossed into Austria we had a border stop. Our tour bus waited in line as the Austrian border guards check passports and visas. Most countries in Europe are small like our Eastern states. When a European travelled from Germany to England for instance he might have to cross two or three borders. Each time he would be stopped to check his credentials. Imagine a United States where every state had a closed border (Every state does have a border and each State respects the boundaries.), and we had to carry passports and get Visa’s to visit our relatives in  another part of the country. I think we would be very upset.

By the year two thousand Europe opened it’s borders so people could move freely from country to country without hesitation. That was a major improvement for Europeans. In other words open-borders made Europe more like the United States.

Here we sit in 2018 with the Democrats using open borders as their policy to make America great. Except, this time opening our last borders with Mexico and Canada would be a huge mistake.  Until we revise our immigration laws to make coming here easier we must keep the borders closed. The revised law must allow us to track everyone who enters. The Mexican border is the only one that is so wide open. The Canadian border is open also but about half of it is an impassable water hazard called the Saint Lawrence river, and the Great Lakes.

The population of Canada is 35 million of which 5% (1.75 million) live in poverty. The population of Central and South America is 472.5 million of which 16.5% (77.5 million) live in poverty. The likelihood of illegal immigration is greater from the Mexican border than it is from the north. In addition, Canada has some safety-net policies to take care of those in need. People want to leave Central and South America because of poverty, oppressive regimes, and socialism.

If someone comes from Asia or Europe by plane they must pass through immigration at the airport. We can track them and check them, but when someone is allowed to walk into the country at will, how do we know who they are, why they have come, and what their intentions are when they get here? We have to create a new Ellis Island type of entry that will vet entrants coming from the south. My parents entered via Ellis Island and were properly vetted before being allowed to enter. A lot of migrants were returned (deported) back to Europe for various reasons. Many of them because they carried a disease we didn’t want to deal with. Today, we allow people with terrible contagious diseases to come including the Ebola virus. We will never know what the migrants from the south bring in.

At this moment in history our country is booming economically. We need workers. They will most likely have to come from Central and South America, Africa, and the Mid-East. If we do this properly we will give ourselves enough time to allow them to assimilate more gradually than a mass arrival would. What good would seven million new people who can’t speak the language, or know the rules, drive, read write, etc. do to fill the seven million job vacancies we have. Business is business and they would fill the jobs, but at whose expense? Ours. Poor service, lousy products, crazy demands for working conditions (prayer breaks five times a day in special prayer rooms), squat toilets, the list can go on for ever.

What kind of argument is there to support open-borders except to destroy the sovereignty of the USA.? Mexico surely wants to reacquire land ceded to the USA by treaty during the Mexican-American war. It is my opinion that Mexicans who want the land back don’t want to pay us for it, but are at war with us and violate the treaty signed between countries. Other than that, I see not one valid argument for wanting an open border with Mexico. 

I do understand that socialists are so desirous of bringing their utopian misery to the United States they want to drive the U.S. into bankruptcy to do it. They follow the Cloward-Piven theorem, that using the welfare laws and policies of a country to overload the social systems, the country can be bankrupted and taken over by a dictator. So anti-American liberal factions encourage millions of poor people (living on $4.50/day) to enter under the premise of finding a better life. I don’t think it would take much more to overload the welfare, healthcare, and educational systems. We have seen the cost of illegal immigration rise to tens of billions of dollars in the recent years.

It is simple folks, we don’t want open borders, we don’t want socialism, we don’t want communism, or any other failed ideology to take away our liberties. If that were to happen we will see a reverse flow of immigrants wanting to leave the country.

I see only one route to take and that is to defend to the death our current liberties and borders.

Political Torture

Liberal Democrats confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh
A few short years ago our Congress went through a terrible examination of conscience. The Islamic world attacked the United States by flying airplanes into the two towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania. The event crippled the country. Air Space was shut down and if you were in the air at the time your pilot was commanded to land at the nearest airport and you were stuck there wherever it was. When the towers came down over three thousand people lost their lives. We were attacked on our turf, and we didn’t like it. President Bush vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice at all cost. The name Osama Bin Laden came to the forefront of news. Eventually we attacked Afghanistan the training grounds for bin Laden’s Al Qaeda terrorist group. It took many years to finally catch bin Laden, but to President Obama’s credit he finally got the job done. During the search for Osama a new term became front page news. An uprising by the liberals arose about water-boarding, a technique used to extract information from people. Democrats came to the rescue and took up the liberal lament that water-boarding is torture. Republicans argued that water-boarding was not torture, but the Democrats held the line it was torture. Even the late Senator John Mc Cain who experienced real torture while a POW in a Viet Nam prison camp for six years commented torture is torture. Democrats argued that the use of torture is not right, and we should not use any form of it ever. How short their memory is. This past week I witnessed torture at it’s worst, or best, depending on how you look at torture as a way to treat an enemy. The confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh was pure and simple torture. Maybe we should call it political torture, but torture is torture. He was demeaned, accused, of sexually assaulting a girl while they were both teen agers. The liberals expanded the accusations to rape, gang-rape, pedophilia, and all acts of perversion without any regard for the feelings of the man or his family. They disregarded his rights to due process and made him guilty until proven innocent, and then prohibited him or the Senate Committee from challenging the accuser who was a woman. God forbid a lady might have motives other than honorable, and the torturers insisted she be treated as a lady. The saddest part of this form of torture is that the judge had to sit there and take it like a man as Senator after Senator chided him and guilted him into agreeing to something he did not do. Finally, after a short break he returned and asked to speak. He defended himself honorably, but also emotionally. He lost his composure and had to stop because of tears, he was so broken emotionally that he cried. What made this display of emotion even sadder was when the liberals continued to pour acid on his open wounds by declaring his show of  emotions was unbefitting the character of a judge. What a bunch of sadistic bastards they are.

Why has Kavanaugh persisted? Lessor men would have just thrown in the towel and said “take your job and shove it.” Yet, the judge insisted on remaining in the battle. He knew it was going to be rough, so why? It is my opinion that he loves our country and the Constitution. He recognizes the socialist strategy to pack the court with liberals that will support liberal laws like Obamacare or worse yet legislate from the bench like Chief Justice Roberts did with Obamacare. Judge Kavanaugh is wise enough to know that the Founder’s presented us with a set of rules by which to rule. The rules have stood the test of time and the libs know it. The only way they can socialize this country is by destroying the Constitution and the rule of law. Theodore Roosevelt tried doing that during the depression years; thankfully he failed.

Judge Kavanaugh is strong willed and can withstand being roped on to the rack to get stretched to the limits of his joints. Libs sadistically smile and enjoy watching his pain as they turn the wheel of the rack and pull him apart. If ever there was a sick bunch of political torturers it is the Democrat Senate of 2018. Going back to the point I began with, that is, waterboarding. How was the political torture of Kavanaugh any different than waterboarding radical Islamist terrorists to extract confessions that would lead to defeating Al Qaeda? For one thing waterboarding was done to the foreign enemy who came to our shores for the purpose of destroying us. In political torture our own people do what ever is necessary to gain power that will lead to the destruction of the USA. Liberals do this without regard to the victims they use. I am much more in favor of waterboarding the real enemy than using political torture to defeat America from within.

Testosterone vs Estrogen

mp900284944 I cannot imagine how the world became populated. Last week I overdosed on the Senate hearings, and frankly, I am sick of it. They made me hate all democrats even though I have some very good friends who are democrats. I heard only one take on this matter which made sense. Both Ms Blasey-Ford and Judge Kavanaugh are right. Neither is lying. Ms Ford is telling what she remembers, but what if what she remembers isn’t what happened? What if during the course of her therapy to get over this dreadful incident while a teen she was hypnotised and the process has altered her memory? Stranger things have happened. Now here is my old guy take on the matter. I think Ms Ford wanted to be abused by the Judge when they were both young, and he rejected her. I wouldn’t put it past a woman scorned to create a story so brazen that people believe it. Just today, I heard a story on the news about a mother who allowed her very young daughter to be raped by her boy friend. What will that little girl remember? I turned on an afternoon program MC’d by Maury Povich. A very pretty young white girl a little bit over weight had a baby and she asked Maury to find out which of nine different boys might be the father. She remembers all of them but which one really hit the jackpot? It will take the remainder of the week to learn if any of the nine guys she named is the father. Today, they eliminated two. The stuff of life happens daily and will continue to happen daily as long as Earth is filled with people. When politics begins to establish new norms upon which to base our votes and those norms are based upon teen age curiosity about sex and the awful scar it leaves on the psyche of the offenders it is time to re-set the country. I don’t believe there is a woman alive who lived through her teen years without at least one story to tell about how she was groped by an over-sexed boy who thought that was the way you make it with a girl. That very kind of activity is most likely why marriage was invented. Set the rule, want some sex, get married and the world opens for you at least with the woman you chose. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t. In  my day it mostly worked. Many of my friends met and married when they left high school and they are still together sixty-five years later. When I was young, there was no such thing as a legal pre-nuptial agreement except the vows one took at the altar. After my first wife set me free by leaving (she died) I got married a second  time, but not without intense pressure from my lawyer to have my new wife sign a pre-nuptial agreement. I argued that we wouldn’t need such a document. He insisted, and we went to a family lawyer to discuss our views. We married without a pre-nup, but we both spoke the vows of “till death do us part.” All I can say in closing is that Ms Blasey-Ford is one screwed up lady, and she has opted to make the Judge into one screwed up guy.

I Would Be A Democrat If . . .

A friend recently sent me this piece about our past President Harry Truman. He was one of the greatest president’s America ever had. If our current day politicians had the same morals and character as Harry our country would be greater than ever and we wouldn’t have to make it great again. Please watch this video, read the vignette, and think about it.  Harry & Bess Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House. The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there. When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an ‘allowance’ and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year. After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them. When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.” Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.” As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food. Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale (cf. Illinois ). Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!” I say dig him up and clone him! If you agree, forward it. If you don’t, delete it. I don’t want to know one way or the other. By me forwarding it, you know how I feel.

Dear Luis

Luis on payday

Luis on TV most of the time

There is nothing like a good hurricane to bring out the best in the worst politicians on the face of earth. Hurricane Florence did that before she even hit the shore. Crooked as a snake, dirtier than dirt, slimier than a slug, Congressman Luis Gutierrez from the 4th District, Illinois has stepped up to the plate to deflect the world away from Democrat problems to blame Trump for the powerful lady Florence. I didn’t think he could stoop so low, but he has. A staunch supporter of Puerto Rican’s in Chicago, he let his true colors show several days before the hurricane hit with this statement about Trump: “He’s so consumed by the calamity in the chaos that exists, he’s not really prepared and focused, because he spends every weekend golfing, instead of preparing.”

Ahem, excuse me Luis, but your bed buddy Obama played golf five days a week and not just on weekends. Trump is also not consumed by calamity having prepped FEMA and State governments as early as possible about making preparations. Unlike your fellow Puerto Rican’s who cried bigger tears than the hurricane that swept your home island clean. We are one year away from hurricane Maria and are just discovering that your dear leaders are allowing acres of containers filled with tons of supplies go to rot in your dear homeland. When the going gets rough Puerto Ricans disappear and cry that the Federal government has let them down. Where were you Luis?

You and your fake news media claim that over three thousand people died as a result of Maria, but accuse Trump for claiming six to eighteen people died. It seems that hard evidence proves Trump closer to being right than you who claim over three thousand. The correct number is less than five hundred. President Trump made his statement two weeks after Maria hit, you made yours a year later.

“An investigation by Quartz, Puerto Rico’s Center for Investigative Journalism, and the Associated Press has identified 488 victims of Maria. It is the most extensive record yet of who died and why. Many families say that the real cause of death was government inaction.”

Luis I can give you a compliment on one thing i.e. your lies are the biggest.

Another thing Luis, why do you, an American citizen, dislike America so much? You have spent your entire career pushing socialism. What will you do to make a living after you retire at the end of this year? I forgot, you will be sixty-five, and able to collect social security, and a hefty government pension. Will you retire to the island nation of your heritage? They may be able to use some of your experience, or would they instead send you packing back to the land you hate.

You’re Fired

 

This evening’s news is disturbing. There is a report that an anonymous source fed an op-ed to a New York newspaper. In the article it reports that workers in the White House don’t do what the president tells them to do. Reporting that if what the president orders doesn’t make sense to him Anonymous does what he thinks is right. I’m sorry Anonymous but I didn’t vote for your sorry ass. No one who voted for the president wants an obscure insider changing his policy because he thinks the president is wrong.

My guess is that this person, who ever it is, never worked at an honest job in his/her life. What do you think Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla, Tim Cook of Apple, or Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook would do if he gave an order and the underling decided to change it because he didn’t think it was right. I know what would have happened to me if my boss gave me an order and I ignored it. He might not have fired me but he would have demoted me and I certainly would have had a marine dress down to my face. (my boss was a former marine).

For all of you in la-la land who think Trump doesn’t know what he is doing don’t think you can do better. Most business people learn by making mistakes. In fact, my leaders taught that if I didn’t make mistakes I wasn’t trying hard enough. Failure begets success.

The owner of my company was an engineer who had an idea and turned it into a successful industry. I say industry because within thirty years of his success there were seventy competitors making the same product that made him successful. Many of them were carbon copies or his design. He had a habit of giving his Chief engineers little experiments to try. He often called me into his office to explain his latest idea. God forbid I told him it wouldn’t work. “Why? Have you tried it?”

“No sir.”

“Then how do you know it won’t work? Test the idea and report back to me this afternoon.”

Often he called me for results before I got back to my office. What I learned is that this man had an idea and he wanted positive physical proof of its veracity. If I had not gotten the experiment right on the first try I had to try again and again until the results proved to him the idea didn’t work, or that it did work but the device was impractical to make. He died a few years ago as a billionaire. I am still a lowly retired guy living on a very small fixed income. The President is a billionaire, what is your net worth smarty pants?

So, Mr. Anonymous get your ass out of the fire. Let the President replace you with a competent assistant who will allow him to try his ideas. Trust me, you will not last more than a day in the competitive environment of a commercial enterprise, and I don’t want you in my government either. So what does that leave you? Move to Venezuela where your type of worker might be tolerated.

If the President discovers who you are Anonymous I hope he has you demoted to cleaning toilets in Afghanistan.

Losing Liberty In Baby Steps, but Very Fast

The county and village I live in is known to be Republican. At least I thought so. In the past eighteen months I have suspected that a couple of new actions by our mayor have been under the guise of “for the good of the people.” To me that is code used by leftist big government to cover actions taken to remove liberty from their loyal subjects.

I am currently president of a local service club that is seventy-seven years old. The club is dedicated to serving the community. For the past thirty-eight years the club has held a raffle to raise money. A large percentage of the funds return directly to community members or organizations. A much smaller percentage leaves the community to fund disaster relief like the three hurricanes that demolished Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico last year.

The raffle prize in the beginning was a Cadillac automobile. With inflation and poor economies the Cadillac became a Chevy, then the Chevy turned into a cash prize. From the beginning the tickets sold for twenty dollars which was the equivalent of a hundred dollars in today’s dollar. Today the same twenty dollar bill is the new fiver. Our raffle still limits the number of tickets sold, but since I have been a member we have never sold all of the tickets. Last year we came within twenty of reaching the goal.

We hold the raffle every year at a special dance. The raffle ticket is also your entrance ticket to the dance.  It is a very nice community affair attended by friends and neighbors. It is a great time. At the same time the Chamber of Commerce runs a world class craft fair that brings thousands of people to the town over a three day weekend celebrating the waning of summer. The entire event, that of my club and the craft fair is a huge party. Every night the special tent set up for the party is filled to capacity with many happy citizens listening to popular bands and drinking beer. The proceeds from the sale of beer funds many community organizations like Boys baseball, Girls Soccer, the Band Boosters, Church Ladies Club, etc. all of them rely heavily on the proceeds to run successful programs

Last year the venue management which was made up of volunteers from the organizations that benefitted from the earnings disbanded at the last minute. Rumor has it that Dear Leader spent considerable effort to inform these local organizations that the liability they carry upon their shoulders for mishaps that may happen as a result of their volunteer workers pouring and serving beer may bankrupt them. The litigation that could result would be a disaster. The venue leaders ran away terrified of financial ruin.

Dear Leader rode in on his charging white stallion dressed in shiny armor to save the day with a plan in hand. The plan did away with using uncertified-licensed volunteers to pour beer. A professional management company will do that from now on, and they will carry the burden of liability. After all it is a state law that we will do that because it is for the good of the people.

Our club survived, but at the expense of three thousand dollars less in our till. That is a huge amount of money taken away from serving the community (which by the way is a lot like doing it for the good of the people, except we do it for fun not for control). Nevertheless, we survived.

Today, we are six days away from holding our raffle, tickets sales are crappy. We are getting feedback that community members didn’t like Dear Leader’s planned event, and they will no longer attend (why they want to stop supporting our club is another matter they don’t explain).

Yesterday, I opened an E-mail from one of our members who is also the Chief Constable. He was alarming me to get a permit to hold a raffle. Without a permit, the raffle is not legal, and as such can become a liability for the perpetrators. “Where the hell did that come from?” I asked, after slowly oozing down from the ceiling. The answer was: the Village passed an ordinance last year to comply with a State law, it is for the good of the people, and Dear Leader wants to do nothing to bring harm to the people.

My take on this matter is that slowly we the people are losing ground and our liberties are being taken away from us. It is an evolution of government. Illinois is more socialist, excuse me I  meant to say more democrat than California. The difference is that we have ordinary people living here and California has a large colony of entertainers who believe we should all bow before them. Instead, we have a colony of politicians who believe the same thing, but they don’t act in movies. Illinois is so socialistic and controlling that those in charge can be referred to as “Dear Leader.” For those who can not decipher my code Dear Leader is the facetious title given to the Mono-leader of North Korea who truly believes everyone in his country belongs to him and their very lives are the result of him and his all knowing, all loving, all embracing administration.

Evolution:

The gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form, like from limited government to huge complex overly burdened bureaucratic government. It stinks even when it is in a small town like mine and my fellow neighbors are swallowing it hook, line, and sinker.
