"The illegals I met last night."
Self | 1/1/2012 | Bern Pearson

Posted on 01/01/2012 8:10:22 AM PST by Gen.Blather

I met some illegal Mexicans last night at a party. Several years ago I stayed with a couple of wonderful Mexican families in the Baja below California. These were well-off people. The homes, on average were beautifully tiled and some of them had mahogany inlaid walls, bookshelves and cabinetry that would cost a hundred-thousand dollars here. So, I’m guessing if they aren’t rich they’re very comfortable. The elderly not as well-off grandfather, while living in Mexico was receiving Social Security from the United States and owned a rent-free apartment in California which he used as his address to receive several forms of assistance checks from Californian agencies. He visited the apartment once a week to re-arrange things and make it looked lived in. He had a car, a Toyota Corolla that looked quite nice and had working air-conditioning. I gathered it was supplied as some form of assistance and he generally left it in California at the apartment. The apartment was about 1100 square feet and very livable. The grandfather told me most of entire complex, easily a 1000 units, were like him, on Californian assistance, but actually living in Mexico.

At the party were a couple of teenage boys from this family. Very nice kids. I’d be proud to have them as my own; diligent, hard working, trouble-free and much more adult than you’d expect from that age. They told me that they’d decided to go to high school in California instead of Mexico. They said that the (California) government gave them an apartment and they travel back to Mexico on the weekends. (I don’t know if they’re staying alone or if a family member is staying with them, but if I had to guess, they came alone.)

When I posted information on this family last time, Freepers angrily asked why I hadn’t reported them. Firstly, I was a well-treated guest. Secondly, this must be obvious to the casual observer. Even if I knew who to report it to in California, which I don’t, it is obvious that this is how it’s done. These people are only taking advantage of “benefits” put there for them. Not to avail themselves of these benefits would be like deciding not to take candy freely offered to you.

I’ve got my inverted flowerpot by way of DEVO.

Is it a green flowerpot or a red flower pot? Apparently, this is important.

Yes, but Gen.Blather provided reports exposing the nature and degree of the problem. He also pointed out that the California government was complicit in making welfare cheating by foreigners simple and risk-free.

Instead of condemning the government, many on the thread preferred to shoot the messenger.

Apparently criminals breaking the law are okay if they're NICE.

And so to show our appreciation for this fallacious line of thinking, we will be here.

Again, you ignore Gen.Blather's last two sentences...

These people are only taking advantage of “benefits” put there for them. Not to avail themselves of these benefits would be like deciding not to take candy freely offered to you.

Gen.Blather approves of their behavior. That's why Gen.Blather has been getting bloodied on this thread. Additionally, Gen.Blather's sentiments are eerily similar to a certain zotted Criminal Invader lover named Dane.

I've noticed Gen.Blather has been strangely silent. Blather seems uninterested in defending his position. Why are you so interested?

Is it a green flowerpot or a red flower pot? Apparently, this is important.

HOLLY: Morning, Dave. I've finished your translation.
LISTER: Who's Cloister? Is it me?
HOLLY: Yes, Dave. The Cats have made you their God.
LISTER: Hey! Working class kid makes good!
HOLLY: Your plan to buy a farm on Fiji and open up a hot dog and doughnut diner has become their image of heaven.
LISTER: What?

HOLLY displays a picture from the Holy Book

HOLLY reads from the book in voice-over.

HOLLY: "And Cloister spake, `Lo, I shall lead you to Fyushal, and there we shall open a temple of food, wherein shall be sausages and doughnuts and all manner of bountiful things.

The picture changes to one showing the pseudo-Lister standing in front of a sausage and doughnut cart on a beach, with palm trees.

HOLLY: "`Yea, even individual sachets of mustard. And those who serve shall have hats of great majesty, yea, though they be made of coloured cardboard and have humorous arrows through the top.'"
LISTER: Does it say what happened to the rest of the Cats?
HOLLY: Holy wars. There were thousands of years of fighting, Dave, between the two factions.
LISTER: What two factions?
HOLLY: Well, the ones who believed the hats should be red, and the ones who believed the hats should be blue.

Another picture, showing the holy wars. It looks like a scene from the Bayeaux Tapestry.

LISTER: Do you mean they had a war over whether the doughnut diner hats were red or blue?
HOLLY: Yeah. Most of them were killed fighting about that. It's daft really, innit?
LISTER: You're not kidding. They were supposed to be green.

Yes. Very important...

I've gone over Blather's posting history and am convinced that this thread is an anomaly. I think he simply is overcome with "tolerance" about this one family.

In a way he's right - people will take what's offered if, to them, its free. When I first read the original post I was incensed by the tolerance level and since have re-read and don't believe he's another "Dane".

I've noticed Gen.Blather has been strangely silent. Blather seems uninterested in defending his position. Why are you so interested?

I'm thinking he's a bit embarrassed and wishes he'd never posted this.

As for "mas cerveza..." anyone who takes a spanish nic is probably partial to what's happening in the U.S. vis-a-vis illegals.

Hey boss, hope you don't mind if I chose this as the January home for the Undead Thread.

Read the last paragraph of this barf fest to see why I did. Apparently it's okay by Gen Blather to break the law if the law breaker is polite and nice.

Reminds me of Dane's "cross border antics" actually.

Oh, and people, Freepathon's on!

Kids, if it weren’t for the science factor of their presence, they’d be less interesting.

The January Undead Thread from last year featured this misreading:
“Want to see what eats this kid?”

Which brought to mind this large armor plated bug idly chewing on Timmmy -again- from the Lassie shows.
Yes, the same Timmy who was consantly being grabbed by open wells, mine shafts, circus peopl, etc.

He’s like Winky from the Brewster Rocket ‘Space Guy’ comic series.
Winky is always having his spleen injured by the aliens, or evil Doctor Mel.
