The Truth Does Hurt: Illegals Going Home Will Be Better For Them and America

with 3 comments

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame,
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

by Emma Lazarus, New York City, 1883

As a first generation American, I heard the story of my mother coming over on the boat and seeing the Statue of Liberty as the ship docked. It was a harrowing experience for her, with her thick accent, coming to this country and not knowing a soul. She had a piece of paper with a name on it of a person, a woman she had never met, who was going to allow her to stay until my mother had other arrangements. My mother became a citizen in 1960 in Washington DC. She obeyed the laws.

When the federal government does not enforce the law, then states must act in its own protection. We are a federalist country, not a democracy. We are made up of states and those states have rights. Arizona’s Governor Brewer asked the federal government in writing five times to intercede and do their job. NO RESPONSE. How can these states defend the borders of our country without the federal government doing their job? Florida has 1700 FHP deputies to help law enforcement to cover 65,000 miles while one sheriff in Texas has 17 deputies to cover 5,000 miles on the border. TX, NM, AZ, CA are overrun with millons of illegals draining the state budgets that should go for its own taxpayers. Businesses and industries are closing because of the fiscal debt of taking care of illegal aliens.

The financial price Americans are paying in welfare and benefits to unskilled workers in this country is a staggering $3.75 trillion dollars. The true cost of illegal aliens to this burden is tens of billions more dollars, if not hundreds of billions.

Current immigration practices, both legal and illegal, operate like a system of trans-national welfare outreach bringing millions of fiscally dependent individuals into the U.S. This policy needs to be changed. U.S. immigration policy should encourage high-skill immigration and strictly limit low-skill immigration. In general, government policy should limit immigration to those who will be net fiscal contributors, avoiding those who will increase poverty and impose new costs on overburdened U.S. taxpayers.

No other country in the world, including Mexico allows illegal aliens to come and go, get jobs, use their schools, health care for routine care for free, provide day care, social security, and collect unemployment. We won’t even go into the extent of crime that is brought into the country with murders, rape, theft, and drugs. But this video has the facts:

Kidnapping Once Every 35 Hours, One in Five Teenagers Using Drugs Supplied By Mexican Smugglers.

This is not Obama’s fault, it’s President Reagan’s fault in 1980 in giving 5 million criminals amnesty after they had broken the law by entering this country illegally. What was the outcome? 20 million more illegal aliens. It needs to be stopped now. Bleeding heart liberals and the compassionate uninformed who think they are being righteous are only killing America’s golden goose which lays the golden egg of opportunity for those who want to come to this country.

Employers of illegal aliens should be arrested. It’s already been seen that when crackdown on employers who hire slave labor (illegals) or the economy declines, they return home. When a company in Phoenix had 300 illegal employees deported, hundreds of AMERICANS applied for the jobs. The statement that illegals do jobs Americans wont do is rhetoric and a lie. After Katrina in New Orleans, companies were hiring illegals to rebuild the city. If even ICE, the U.S. Immigrant and Customs Enforcement hires illegals, why should regular businesses comply?

The Arizona immigration law does not allow law enforcement to randomly stop anyone. But like the seat belt law which for an entire year after it was passed, a car could not be stopped exclusively for the passengers not wearing seat belts, police cannot stop someone because they “look like an illegal.” Whatever looking like an illegal may be… How about some common sense here, folks?

Maybe if we had 20 million blonde, blue eyed Scandanavians infiltrating our country illegally, taking jobs, committing crimes, we would be looking for that profile but we are not. The massive amounts of illegal aliens are coming in through the borders along Mexico. Just as I carry my ID with me at all times, I would have no qualms about being stopped and asking for it. When I travel to other countries, the same procedure can happen. In America, when a car full of people with thick Irish brogues driving a car erratically get pulled over, they are asked for their driver’s licenses. If they don’t have one, they go to jail until the police can figure out who and where they should be. That’s the law. Do we have 20 million illegal Irish people in this country?

No other country in the world treats illegal aliens as benignly or as compassionately as this country does. All illegals, whether they are from Ireland, Britain, Middle East, Scandanavia, China, Australia, or Mexico etc should be sent home. Progressives and Liberals, including Democrats and the Catholic Church, condone this slavery, and help exploitation and abuse of humans by being enslaved, and encourage criminal acts of entering our country illegally when they offer support and assistance and do not state outright that illegal immigration is a criminal act that cannot be tolerated. We are abetting the impoverished, illiterate, and those uncapable of being self-sufficient to come to this country to get welfare benefits that they cannot get in their own country. We are allowing unfit parents and pregnant mothers who have anchor babies and bring innocent children to this country by means that threaten their very lives. Thousands of illegal immigrants die trying to come to this country every year. Authorities in all businesses, political leadership and in the Church should be encouraging other countries in Latin America, the Caribbean, and around the world, to clean up their own governments and take care of their own citizens so that they don’t have to come to our country to eat and find a job unless they do it legally.

Democrats have long kept generations of families enslaved since the beginning of our country and through the false benevolence of welfare programs. Obama’s partisan agenda of bringing amnesty to Congress will allow him to enslave another generation of ignorant, welfare-beholdened, ethnic Democrats for a powerful voting bloc to let him and Democrats retain their grip on American families.

Governor Brewer is a courageous woman, who is acting on the behalf of Arizona’s constituents. Arizona’s citizens applaud her efforts. If the actions of Arizona get the federal government to start enforcing their own laws, then so be it. But our country cannot continue the way it is now. America needs to take care of her herself without making her own American hardworking citizens the real poor, wretched, and homeless.

Noah’s Ark Part II

leave a comment »

On top of Mount Ararat, Chinese and Turkish archaelogists find more wood remains of a massive wooden planks.

The group claims that carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old, meaning they date to around the same time the ark was said to be afloat. Mt. Ararat has long been suspected as the final resting place of the craft by evangelicals and literalists hoping to validate biblical stories.

Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah’s Ark Ministries International research team that made the discovery, said: “It’s not 100 percent that it is Noah’s Ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it.”

There have been several reported discoveries of the remains of Noah’s Ark over the years, most notably a find by archaeologist Ron Wyatt in 1987. At the time, the Turkish government officially declared a national park around his find, a boat-shaped object stretched across the mountains of Ararat.

Nevertheless, the evangelical ministry remains convinced that the current find is in fact more likely to be the actual artifact, calling upon Dutch Ark researcher Gerrit Aalten to verify its legitimacy.

We Will Remember In November

This video from January 2010 on PowerLine’s blog is extremely powerful.  John Hindraker writes:

This video doesn’t exactly represent our point of view–we never fell for Obama’s “hope and change” scam–but it does speak for many millions of Americans. It’s nicely done. We’ll see a lot more of this kind of populist calling of Democrats to account between now and November:

UPDATE: Apparently liberals have been trying to drive this video off YouTube. The original link no longer works; this one does, for now at least:

It’s not only Republicans and conservatives that are upset with this Obamanation regime. It’s the Democrats, Independents, and Fringe minorities that totally fell for O’s bunk, hook, line, and sinker.

American Heart

with one comment

I saw Jon David’s ‘American Heart’ video after reading the summary of a contingent of Central Florida conservatives’ trip last month to Washington D.C. to protest and fight against Obamacare. Tom Tillison’s accounting of what these Orlando patriots accomplished and experienced gave me chill bumps as I felt my blood surge with love for our country and the freedoms that we hold dear.

Andrew Breitbart, of BigGovernment would like to see the Tea Party’s adopt David’s song as the movement’s anthem. Great idea.

This is truly a great country that will not fade away as long as we don’t forget how and why this country was founded. We all have American hearts and will never give up. The American people have only begun to fight.
