Since nothing we are doing now seems to be working, and never has, maybe the best thing to do is to pull all support for Mexico back, let the cartel’s and the Mexican government work it out. At that point, either the government wins or the cartels wins. If the cartels win, then we can wipe them out. Right now, we are just beating our heads against the wall.
To try and unite conservatives here and there would take years. I don’t believe we have years to wait. If something isn’t done and done now.........all hell is going to break loose in the border states and then move to the other states.
You owe me a new screen.
You were not rude at all. I smiled when I read your post. My daughter and son kid me about being the “weird uncle” in the family. You get that label sometimes when you do Kingdom work. I’m okay with that.
Good to see you back Old Sarge! Hope you are feeling great!
Best scene in a great movie. Thanks for linking it!
[just wish Michael and Reba were like that in real life. :( drat!]
Well, I hear they're going to develop a new shade of cotton candy. Yep...kelly green spun sugar will now be the color of choice at carnivals and circuses.
As much as I had hoped when I was a kid, I don't think we'll see flying cars like in "The Jetsons" anytime soon.
The sun will continue to rise in the east from what I can see.
Unfortunately, shoulder pads will come back into style at some point.
Well, that's all I've got for now. Hope that helps.
But that was in history, Hugh, before they changed the water.
There are numerous parties, groups, interests that are involved here:
1. The US government
2. The individual American States
3. The US taxpayers
4. The US residents in the border states
5. The Mexican government
6. The individual Mexican States
7. The Mexican people
8. The indigenous Mexican migrant workers
9. The narco traffickers
For generations no. 8 were able to cross the border, work the farms, save their money and return to Mexico and Central America and live very very well. Civil Rights, Cesar Chavez, La Raza, now narco traffickers driven out of Columbia, the weakness of no. 6 along the border and the enormous growth over 4 decades of no. 1 with its march of socialism has made the dynamic untenable.
Rather than consider a thesis on the history and connections among all the parties, the simple solution is to build a fence, with a strong border patrol and deal with the incursions on an episode to episode basis. After about a generation of strong border patrol and law enforcement, the perception of a weak US border will be history.
For the longterm, an eradication of socialism in the US will allow for migrant labor to florish without having all the problems that socialism causes by attracting indigenous populations to free yet costly benefits.
A friend of mine in Mexico City has a servant girl (the horror!) who is paid only $400 a month. The girl’s name is Paola. She is from the country and she lives and works M-F with my friend and also works 2 weekends a month. She does not want a college ‘education’, she only wants to save her money. She is a farm girl and she has a strong work ethic. Her outlook is that she likes to work and create a clean home and healthy meals. (Horrible yeah? We’re talkin major civil rights violations, human exploitation, racist and female oppression underpinnings! Yeah?)
What I just described is like horrible to our ears, isn’t it? I mean it’s like I am talking like some awful exploiter of the poor yeah?
So I continue:
Paola pays no taxes, she has very little expense as she has free food and lodging. She wakes up about 6:30am and starts work shortly after. She works until about 6pm.
Paola does not require a license, or to be documented, or to be regulated.
Paola takes her $400 saved each month, gives half to her parents, saves the other half to buy land with her boyfriend who she wants to marry and have children with.
Isn’t it shocking to think someone could buy farmland or even a home by saving $200 a month?
The reason Paola can live well and save for the future is because the economy there allows for it and the government does not think it needs to regulate every aspect of life.
Is Paola living in squalor? No, she does not, she lives in a villa in a upscale district of Mexico City. Mexico City is no longer polluted as it was in decades past, it is now safe and prosperous, the restaurant food is incredible and the service is considered the best in the world.
When Paola travels to the countryside to visit family, is she visiting famly that live in tin shacks with streams of untreated sewage flowing nearby? With barefoot children running around malnourished? No, none of that. Her family live on a farm, they have most all of what they need, dairy, eggs, chicken, crops and a nice home on a farm.
I am not advocating that Americans live like that, but merely recounting how Americans once were when the federal government was not so pervasive and everywhere intrusive.
If we could hire Mexicans in our homes, our farms and businesses without all the regulation, without all the taxes and civil rights restrictions, without having to pronounce all anchor babies as US citizens and thereby give them access to huge social entitlements, without hearing the constant drumbeat that by hiring indigent people we are exploiting the poor, then perhaps people could settle down and relax the borders.
Im my simple mind, we must roll back socilaism in the USA, we must repeal the 16th Amendment and abolish the Tax Code, replace with it with the FairTax, and thereby kill socialist funding revenue. We must regulate the Federal Reserve. The reason this has an effect on border problems is because it is money and socialist programs in the US that attract the indigenous from Mexico and Central America, and their plight and vulnerability attract criminals such as the Medellin Cartel that was run out of Columbia and found the northern states of Mexico to operate.
What you say sounds good to me. Until then, our borders must be closed. Mexico has to realize that the American people are pissed off about the immigration status today. Until that is fixed, they will never accept the status quo. Granted, we need changes and changes that go back to our Founding Fathers beliefs that this nation and it’s people are free to pursue their desires. I do not believe that we can wait for another generation to accomplish this. It is not the American way to dump this on our children or grandchildren. Although it looks like this will happen but we must to all we can to lessen the pain.
America cannot help others of other countries if we cannot help ourselves. This means, that for a time, we have to get selfish. We have to look to ourselves and hope others can take care of themselves.
I think it is because one hand is busy using the mouse, the other is busy polishing their narcissistic needle as they gush over the huge response they draw.
Now if you're Mr. common sense you won't believe me when i tell you that i've got an envelope in my hand that'll wash your car while you're driving it home to work!
I blame them for my career in advertising. ;o)
I blame myself for never going into English after spending years studying their work.
And you can believe me because I never lie and I’m always right (baby spanked, begins crying), so vote for the only real choice: me, George Tirebiter, K100R200N
Those folks were a hoot!
Sorry i did not get back to you sooner ,i was teaching my future oppressor daughter how to make crosses and hoods out of everyday items..
I was very impressed with her putting 2 lollypop sticks together held with chewing gum..
Thank you for the valuable advice we do have the vacuum sealers, sometimes daddy forgets to shower after crossburning..
Once again thank you so much for the advice...
Yeah but after about 3 or 4 comment it turns into a jokefest,i guess if we remained serious giving him advice how to survive he could be laughing at us...
When we know he is a idiot it kinda backfires on him....
