My Heart Cries Out

A government shut-down usually means people don’t get paid. The modern shutdown engineered by Congress insures that the Administration, Congress, the Supreme Court and most of the bureaucracies get paid. Congress wrote all of that into law, and you better believe that is one law they enforce. There is a small part of people whom they have defined as being non-essential, like museum curators, National Park workers and the like. These are the people who will get their pay delayed.I feel for these people whose lives suddenly take a turn for the worse. I cannot imagine what I would do if my income stopped.

The press and all the Democrats and too many Republicans are also beginning to support the delay negotiations for border security until the government reopens. A very sad affair.

Where were these people in 2008 when the economy tanked and millions of people found themselves without a pay check?  Somehow they learned to survive with help from the government. A lot of people lost their homes, cars, and some families broke up. Life was tough. The situation lasted up until Trump became president and jump-started the economy to the point where people again have jobs. People suffered for eight years. During this time those who are classified as non-essential received a paycheck. It didn’t matter that millions of people didn’t have the money to visit the museums, and the National Parks they kept getting paid. I never heard of anyone who lost a job tell me that as soon as business picked up they would get back pay. I didn’t hear that because that never happens when companies lay you off or go out of business.

With the economy booming and jobs being plentiful I am certain these non-essential people can get temporary employment to survive until Trump and Congress solves the border crisis. Certainly it won’t take eight years like the recession did, but it can last up to two years.

I whole heartedly support President Trumps tactic to keep the shut-down going until Congress agrees to negotiate.

I remember when President Reagan ran into a similar situation during his term. The Democrats got to him and promised him everything he wanted in the way of immigration reform as soon as the shut down ended. He took the bait and guess what? Congress shoved the promise right up his presidential ass. They did succeed in screwing up the laws so we have the current situation. It has to change and it won’t until both sides agree to talk. President Trump has repeatedly brought the leaders to the table attempting to resolve the problem. Each time the Senate and Congress brought the talks into stalemate.

If I were a non-essential government worker I’d be entering my résumé data online to find some job opportunities. Congress hasn’t been able to do jack-shit since 2008, and they have forgotten the meaning of the word work. They are a bunch of non-effective non-essential workers who get paid much too much for nothing.

Magots in Government

I was very incensed during the Obama years when he asked to Congress for an 800 billion dollar stimulus for shovel ready infrastructure projects. Neither the Democrats, Rino’s or Republicans gave a shit about what mattered to me, they all lined up waiting to vote for Obama’s second near trillion-dollar gift.

I still ask the question which of the 800 billion dollars went to a shovel ready job? My answer came a year or so later when Obama admitted that there were no shovel ready projects, but it sounded good and the people swallowed the bait. He got what he asked for. Had we spent that money on infrastructure we could have built a fence across both the southern, and northern borders and replaced every rotten bridge in the country, but we spent it on keeping Obama cronies well fed, and millions of people stayed unemployed. Now, these same maggots who call themselves Congressional leaders won’t spend a dime to give a real president what he promised the people. He promised because we the people elected him to do so. I can’t wait for the next election to vote more of these slime balls out of existence.

The border is porous, it is vulnerable, it is easy to cross. We need something more than more border patrol officers and sensors. Sensors work if you stomp across the border and wake them up. Our dear leaders should read a book titled “The Coyote’s Bicycle,” (Kimball Taylor).

The Coyote’s Bicycle is a story about a young kid in Mexico whose family deserts him to take care of his aged grandfather while they all cross the border to a better life. The grandfather dies leaving the kid to fend for himself. At the tender age of twelve he leaves town to find his family. He ends up in a Mexican border town and waits for his opportunity to cross over. He learns that there are men called coyotes who make big money to take people across. He waits and learns the business by watching.

Eventually, the boy becomes a coyote, and makes a million dollars smuggling people into America. He has a secret. He smuggles his customers across the border through the areas where it is too hard to build a fence. He gets past the sensors because sensors listen for foot steps, but they cannot detect the sound of bike tires rolling across. His added advantage is that his customers can move quicker on a bike, and thus avoid border patrols more easily.

Today, I heard Senator Chuck Schumer present a plan for border security. Guess what? All of his ideas are those this young coyote learned to defeat.

When will we learn that democrats don’t have an original idea nor are they capable of thinking of one? All they ever think about is how to entice new voters to keep them employed. It is time we begin to think about how to use the right our Founders left us, i.e. to use our second amendment rights to rid ourselves of the vermin who insist on turning our country into a mindless socialist state.

Deconstruct America?

I hear the word reform being used by politicians and news pundits almost daily. Most of the time they are discussing the USA immigration policy. Another word they use even more often than reform is broken, “our immigration laws are broken,” etc. The action I see people taking, however, does not fit the definition of reform. For instance, the caravan of 14,000 invaders marching northward from Central America to take advantage of the “broken” system. These soldiers are not reforming America to improve it, they are marching to wriggle in through a crack in the system to take it over.

All of this got me to thinking about how they really want to change America. What the people in organized groups like la Raza want is a deconstruction of America. What do I mean by that? An open border existed from the beginning of time when neanderthals roamed the earth until the day Mexico lost a war with the USA and the outcome was a line drawn in the sand and water dividing two groups of people into two distinct countries. Before that the Spaniards landed on the West coast and decided to civilize the Mayans, Aztecs, Apaches, and all the other native people’s who lived and roamed freely between the territory now split into two. They didn’t need borders because they decided all of the land was theirs. I have to give it to the Spaniards because they left America with a legacy that the natives all love and thrive on, i.e. language, and religion. Yet, the further south one travels from Mexico into the isthmus connecting North to South America we begin to see borders. In that tiny space defined by the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, North and South America there are seven countries all speaking Spanish and living in similar cultures. Going across the Panama canal one enters South America also largely inhabited by Spanish-speaking people. There are borders defining all of these countries. The natives move somewhat freely from country to country without much ado. All one needs is to carry his official identification papers.

Why doesn’t la Raza make a big to-do about all the borders in these territories? Probably because if the natives follow the rules and carry their ID’s they can pass freely. What I don’t understand is why these same natives refuse to follow laws when they move northward. All a person needs to get into the U.S. is a VISA.

Going back to my original reason for this essay, after the border is erased and all remnants of the wall are destroyed Mexican and Central Americans will want their territory back. “The Mexican Cession consisted of present-day U.S. states of California, Nevada, Utah, most of Arizona, about half of New Mexico, about a quarter of Colorado, and a small section of Wyoming.” Now, we’re talking some serious real estate.

To continue the deconstruction of the United States (US) the next move will be to give the Louisiana Purchase back to France. That moves the border to the middle of the Mississippi river. The tribes of North America ( and those from the south would reestablish their warring rivalries as they beat each other up to find food, women, and exercise their warrior status. Right around the same time we negotiated the deal with France we bought some property from Spain called Florida. In our project to deconstruct the US we’ll also have to give Florida back to Spain. Didn’t they own all of North America from Utah south into South America? Gosh they were land hogs?  “The Spanish expression la Raza (literally ‘the Race’) refers to the Hispanophone populations (primarily though not always exclusively in the Western Hemisphere) . . . . ”

I almost forgot, before we go further we should sever Hawaii and Alaska from the Union and give them back to their rightful owners. Who is that? Hawaii was a kingdom when Captain Cook discovered it. Afterwards the islands were settled by farmers from many countries, but most from the US. So we would have to concede Hawaii back to the natives who could reestablish a kingdom and reinstitute their practice of human sacrifice. As an aside, Hawaiians recently voted to dissociate itself from the Union. Voters rejected the idea unanimously.

President Seward made a deal with the Russians to buy Alaska, and paid an outlandish fifteen millions dollars for it. The deal became know as Seward’s Folly. The Russians would gladly take Alaska back from us and use it to threaten us with mayhem of their design.

The next phase of deconstruction will make the “Treaty of Paris officially ending the War of Independence. . . ” null and void. The Treaty of Paris also defined “. . .  the boundaries of the new nation: the Atlantic Ocean on the East; the Mississippi River on the West; Canada on the North; and Spanish Florida on the South.”

The project doesn’t end with the thirteen colonies belonging to Great Britain. We will have to go back to Columbus and remove all traces of colonization by Great Britain, Spain, France, Holland, and other European countries that were greedy for land and power.

What is currently happening is a war between the Spanish colonies and the American colonies. The Spanish legacy continues to spread its language and religion northward.

What I was hoping to do by writing this piece is to define for myself the root cause of the border migration.  It hasn’t really shed any new light on my thinking. One point that is evident is that the Spanish legacy within Mexico and Latin America is very strong. Is it because the people who evolved from the Spanish incursion have a grudge to even? Are they purposefully getting back at the United States for the atrocities committed on them by Spanish conquerors?

Is it racism? the term la Raza (the Race) certainly points to racism as a reason to conquer the border. Certainly in this day of racial division we don’t need another divide, but we have it, and it doesn’t seem to be getting easier to assimilate into one bunch of united and happy people’s. Or is this just one of many ways to pick on the world’s number one country? Leaders have always competed against upstarts that feel they have a better way to lead, govern, expand, enlighten, or enrich.( I deliberately left out pillage, rape, and kill because we are better than that today, or are we?)

At this point in history, the US is being attacked from many angles by ideologies and causes. Which will prevail? The reason America is exceptional is because of its Constitution and the dedication to maintaining it as a system of governance. The liberties afforded our citizens have allowed the country to grow and increase in wealth. We are not locked into socialism which restricts people from expanding themselves. We are free to choose our own destiny by how we do business, how we worship, or how we adhere to our laws.  We choose to  move freely across our state borders without any need for a Visa, passport, or ID’s. our currency is uniform, and our language is uniform. We have some minor cultural differences, but none that restrict any of us from doing what we please.

The USA has invested heavily in infrastructure nationwide, and this has enabled us to expand our businesses and to roam freely about the country. We don’t worry if the water is safe to drink when we move to another state, it is safe. We get the same emergency treatment at hospitals and on the road. We never worry about language barriers, or currency differences. Food is readily available because of entrepreneurs who operate cafe’s or run franchises. Safety is uniformly taught and practiced. Our police and fire departments are noted for their efficiency. The list of reasons why we are a great country is immense.

In the US a single person is defined as living in poverty if he lives on less than $32.87 per day. In Mexico the same person lives in poverty at $5.23 per day, and in Central America that same person lives on $4.00 per day. To me this is the root cause of the  problem. These people are starving and need a meal. They want to come to America out of desperation and need. They really love living where they were born, but between gangs and starvation they take desperate measures to survive, like walking two thousand miles in flip-flops to make it to the promised land. The problem is that they need a VISA and no one has told them that. It is rumored that political factions within the US spread the word that all they have to do is show up and seek asylum. Except, even asylum seekers have rules to follow and they break them when they arrive. Asylum is granted by the first country beyond the one you live in. A caravaner from Honduras has passed through Guatemala and Mexico before he arrives at the US border. As an attempt to appease President Trump, Mexico offered asylum to the group, but only a small handful accepted the deal, the rest are going for the brass ring.

What is the answer? Deconstruct the United States and start all over again. That will transfer the  problem to the nut jobs that are working overtime to destroy the US. The final answer will be equal misery for everyone, except of course the people in charge.
