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.

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.

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.

Shovel ReadyPRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCES SALE OF CALIFORNIA TO MEXICO

WASHINGTON (AP) – At 12:15 pm EST today President Trump will disclose 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 and 3) pay to relocate the 67 Republicans that currently reside in California.
3) He also noted that the 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 three 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 mega-earthquake hits California.
– The space in the 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 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.

California residents will be issued special blue cards to cross the border into the U.S. 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 who 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. 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”.

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.

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.

Spanish_Colonization_of_Mexico.jpg

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.

8c302c394706b920d088a54932d61ac9.jpg

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.

Diego-Rivera-Mexico-Big-details-600.jpg

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.

Mapa_Mexico_1845.PNG

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.

 

Emergency Preparedness Step

It has been a long time since I heard from my cousin Sharron on the Left Coast. I was surprised today when she popped up in my in basket with another nugget of knowledge like she always sends. This one makes great sense. Since so many of us have professed to move out of the country when the wrong candidate wins the election. I think living in Mexico wouldn’t be much different than living in America these days, except for the bennies. The letter below is a list of demands to be met before I step over the line.

This Gap In the Fence On The Mexico/USA Border Is There To Allow Us to Escape.

Dear Mr. Obama, Senate and Congress:

I’m planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my
health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.

We’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico , and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements.

We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports,
immigration quotas and laws.

I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So,
would you mind telling your buddy, the President of Mexico, that I’m on my way over?

Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking Government bureaucrats for all services I
might need, whether I use them or not.

3. Please print all Mexican Government forms in English.

4. I want my grand kids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking
(bi-lingual) teachers.

5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American
culture and history.

6. I want my grand kids to see the American flag on one of the
flag poles at their school.

7. Please plan to feed my grand kids at school for both breakfast
and lunch.

8. I will need a local Mexican driver’s license so I can get easy
access to government services.

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but I don’t plan to
purchase car insurance, and I probably won’t make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the
memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my housetop, put U.S. flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes,
or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be
extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.

14. I want to receive free food stamps.

15. Naturally, I’ll expect free rent subsidies.

16. I’ll need income tax credits so that although I don’t pay
Mexican taxes, I’ll receive money from the government.

17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays
$4,500.00 to help me buy a new car.

18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the
Mexican Social Security program so that I’ll get a monthly income in
retirement.

I know this is an easy request because you already do all these
things for all of his people who walk over to the U.S.
from Mexico.
I am sure that the President of Mexico won’t mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

Do you see how stupid this looks when it’s put it in writing?

Get Me the Paper Bag, I’m Going To Be Sick

Every time I hear Obama speak he burns me up. The hypocrisy that spews from his mouth is record-setting. He will someday own the Guinness Book of Records as the most hypocritical President ever to lead a country. When I heard his speech to the people of Ferguson, Missouri about remaining peaceful, and his reiteration of “we are a nation of laws” I wanted to puke. How much longer must we endure this man in office? Yeah, yeah I know he has seven hundred and eighty-six days remaining in his legal term, but who is counting. I see that as seven hundred and eighty-six days of opportunity to further transform the greatest country on earth into a banana republic. If you voted for him twice, shame on you. I hope you are totally satisfied with the result. Are his failed policies really what you dreamed this country would be transformed into? If so, I feel sorry for you, and I will pray for you even if you are atheist or muslim you need prayerful help.
