The U.S. – Mexican Wall

There was a number of years where I was a proponent of building a wall to secure our Southern border.  Over the years, I have read and discussed the subject more.

My position on the matter has shifted somewhat. I still see the need for the wall, but not as a budgetary priority.

Having an understanding that the numbers of those slipping over the border are not as great as those that are overstaying their visas. Since I work in an industry of numbers, I feel that it is important to follow my brain here more than my heart or gut.

Does this change my position on deportation? No, not in the least.  (Watch for a follow-up post on Dreamers)

I would rather see the financing for the war on drugs (as a tangent, legalize marijuana on a national level)  being diverted to the enforcement of immigration law.

While the wall has value, the tremendous cost is not one that we can afford. The GOP wants it. With the stiff tax cuts, they have fucked us over to the point that we cannot pay for it. Perhaps when we have our finances under control, we can construct sections of the wall in areas that badly need it.

I have to wonder how fuqtarded that the GOP voters were that actually believed the Orangatard when he said that Mexico was going to pay for it. I know that not all did, but they sure were vocally in support of the idea. Former Mexican President had put it pretty well:

“TRUMP, when will you understand that I am not paying for that fucken wall. Be clear with US tax payers. They will pay for it.”

Do I still think that property owners along the border should be able to defend our border by force? Yes, I do. I still view it as an incursion.  If the Mexican police or military cross over, even more so. Our sovereign soil should be defended, as well as property rights.
So, in the end, I am pretty well against the construction of a full wall on our Southern border.


Should Illegals Be Shocked Upon Deportation?

With the new shift in deportation, we saw the Latino community flip out when a woman who was in the US since 14 was deported.
This is one sample case:
When a person knows that they are in the US illegally and have been for a long time, I lose sensitivity when they have not taken steps to become a citizen. I know that the process is not easy, but you have to at least work on it.
It is not a secret that I despise T-Rump, but this is an area where I support his position.
If you are an illegal alien, please start the process to getting your green card and hopefully citizenship. We want you here, but you have to do it in the correct way.

Amnesty vs Path to Citizenship – We Cannot Afford Either

We have seen the fight between the politicians and the citizenry over the issue of illegals.

I am not going to with some wimp assed semantecs over illegal vs undocumented alien. Other than to call them what they are; aliens who are here illegally, hence the phrase.

So we have an estimated 11 million illegal aliens in the country.

I have said it before and I will say it again, I do not care what country they come from. I am not a racist… I just want them to arrive legally.

Before you even start with the whole stupid line of remarks about how white people were the first illegals let’s get this out of the way too.

Even the “Native Americans” (hereafter referred to as Indians (that is another topic)) came here from another continent.

There were no immigration laws until there was a government who saw need for them.

When the economy is strong, we tend to take a more lazaire faire attitude. If it isn’t posing us a direct financial impact we let it slide.

With our household finances, when times get tight we have to find ways to save (those who are smarter don’t feed the pig to begin with) money wherever we can.

Now the government on the other hand when faced with this doesn’t seem to notice the needs changing. They just keep spending and giving stuff away. Money that is not THEIRS to give. It is ours for them to look after. We have entrusted it to them.

11 millions people inside the country illegally; some just over stayed their visas, others came in illegally to begin with.

Our government has chosen to bring in people for high tech jobs with claims that we don;t have viable candidates locally. This year they are giving more visas than their are jobs for. Shit we even have high tech visas for ENTRY LEVEL positions… wait what?!? for every level? Isn’t the definition of entry level a position that a beginner can do?  Are they expecting us to believe that we don’t have some high school grads that cannot fill those jobs? Does’;t corporate America have a responsibility to have a pathway to employment? (well the phrase works for illegals right?) Why should business think that they can just decide that they hire experts only for every role. Sure you want experts… train them.

Unemployment has been bad, and devastating in the teen markets. They don’t need more hurdles thrown in their way.

Corporate America is wanting the moon, but only wanting to pay for a model rocket, or perhaps a stomp rocket. Corporate America feel that they should set the job requirements for college degrees for (seemingly) an job within their organizations. I am not knocking upper education, as it is a wonderful thing, but is it really required? Don’t you think that life education can count for something? I have over 30 certifications from Microsoft (and others) but they do not equal a college degree to an employer. can a brand new college graduate do all that I can? Sure after they have a long time in the field like I have. My experience truly includes blood, sweat and tears.

So since corporate America wants to push for the education, do they bolster the student loans? How about push for lower tuition and books? no, no no… that would make too much sense. They choose to grant in state tuition for criminals who slipped into this county in a variety of ways.  Now some kids, were dragged along as baggage… As a dear friend said (as best as I remember) if a dad steam a car and gives it to their teenager, does the teenager get to keep it? NO! It is still a stolen car.

Where else are illegals costing us?

Medical costs are debatable, but I think that if you are not supposed to be here, then we should not have to pay. If my license to drive has been suspended and I drive anyway, resulting in an my being rear ended who is at fault? Me, for being on the road in the first place.  The same principle applies doesn’t it?,

Aren’t we spending too much on translation services?

With all of these extra costs, they want to give green cards to everyone here that didn’t come the right way.

That just spits in the faces of all of those who did do the right thing in their path to become Americans.

We have a solid pathway to citizenship already.

If a person has a green card, I am quite happy to help with getting through the test, improving language skills, etc..

Would another amnesty help? Sure, those that can start working above the table, could start working towards a retirement. Politicians who were able to stand there and say that they helped the illegals get legal… sure they would be better off as long as the newly legal  made it worth their wile to cover the loss of those who opposed their actions.  Would farmers prosper? they would have to start doing things legally themselves.  They already should be… but we know the truth.

We cannot harbor criminals.

We cannot afford it

We cannot keep doing this.

We cannot.


A View That Will Not Be Taken Well.

I am about to take a direction that many will not like.

It is no secret that I am not a fan of the current SCOTUS position on the 2nd amendment. I also do not recognize any requirement to register firearms and will only do so as a last resort.

Where am I going with this? It is pretty easy to connect the dots.

Our borders are being overrun, why?

The answer is because our citizenry is not being allowed to defend the border form incursion.

It should be our responsibility to defend our borders with deadly force. If you cannot accept that, then you should not own border property.

Illegally crossing a nations border is an invasion, one that you should expect could end your life.

Maybe I am a cruel bastard, but that is how I see it. We cannot support the extra millions of leeches on our system. Yes there are many to are HARD working and motivated individuals. As the same time we have the scum of the earth committing crime after crime. We are not talking about the petty stuff either. We are talking rape, robbery, and murder. Why should we tolerate it? Just drop them at he border and don;t worry about it.

Is it cold blooded murder? No, it is the defense of our nation.

Those that want to push for amnesty are traitors in my eyes. they are casting aside what our ancestors served for.

We have a troubled country that could be great again. There is much work that needs to be done, and it will begin with securing the borders and deporting those that have not come to the US legally.

Is it really an imposition to ask for…

The Supreme Court has rules that states cannot ask for any more ID that the initial form to register a voter…

They find that it is too much of an imposition to ask that there be more enforcement than a simple check-box to have the signer note that they are a citizen unless penalty of perjury.

Is it really?

In most states I have to present local ID to pay by check.

In some states to use an ATM card, one must present legal ID.

To get a library card, one must normally present legal ID.

To cash a paycheck, one must present ID.


The law requires that a person voting for a federal candidate, they must be a citizen, but we will just take their word for it.

Why is it too intrusive? We are not talking about a poll tax as the cost for a state issued ID is minimal. Shit, make it free if they can show financial hardship!


All state issued ID’s should require proof of citizenship.

The other night I had my first person with a Tribal ID card. You bet I took it, as it is LEGAL ID, and it was not expired.

If I am presented with a  Marticula Consular card, I will not admit that person to the bar. If my employer wants to permit it, that is fine and I will submit my two weeks notice on the spot. (My day job requires e-verify so I am covered there)


We have laws that have served us well with common sense for ages. Yes, we have had crap laws (and still do) that were stricken as they were discriminatory or contrary to the Constitution or Bill of Rights. This is not one of those situations.

It is high time that the states start asserting their rights and opt out of assisting the federal government with various areas within their authority until the feds re-discover the fact that they are not the end all, be all of our country’s well being.


Wait, what?

So the government shutdown has no problem spending money to keep people out of parks and other resources during this shut down… but has no problem with granting a permit to let the damn illegals construct a stage and use the National Mall for a rally/protest to demand amnesty and rights?


What the hell kind of bullshit is this?


Of course with the current illegal loving government, even if there weren’t a shut down, nobody would have the balls to round up the illegals and ship their asses back to their countries of origin.

I find the tactics to force the citizenry to give a shit about the shut down to be stunning. All the various services being blocked that may cost more to block than to allow pedestrian traffic. Why should sections of the open sea be closed to fishing?

Are you really going to tell the Border Patrol to stand down and just permit illegals free flow across the borders?

To me that seems actionable. I find THAT to be grounds for impeachment. Kind of funny coming from a non-tea party member right?

Kind of funny coming from a former Obama supporter. I said years ago, that I would call it like I saw it and if Obama proved to be a problem, I would call him out on it. Welcome to that day…

Mr President, it is becoming more clear that you have some sides of you that SUCK!

No, I do not think I would change my votes if I have the chance as I still think he was the lesser of the evils. Some things were good but the more we see  of his second term, the less I care for him.

Illegals With a Sense of Entitlement

So we have a group of illegals who feel that they are entitled to free transplants…

They have started a hunger strike that they say will continue until the CEO of Northwestern Memorial agrees to meet with them. Okay, no reason not to meet with them. I would ask that he not yield to their demands…

There is no reason whatsoever for illegals to get free healthcare. If they pony up the cash, you bet! Perform the services that are needed.

If these people want to go on a hunger strike, that is fine. Treat it like a child having a tantrum, let them go through it and don’t cave in. They have two choices, eat or die. I personally don;t care, other than it is a shame when someone loses their live.

We cannot afford to keep giving away the farm. It is bad enough that we have enough fuqtards in power that they are getting far too many services as it is. To the politician who feel that criminals are more vital to our nation that those who are supposed to be here, “FUCK YOU!” They are illegals, they are to get nothing from us. no, no lo hagas! ¡Vete al cuerno! (I chose Spanish since it seems to be the predominant language used by illegal immigrants. I do understand that there are many languages involved, but I am not going to translate them all here.)   Had they entered the country legally, my position would be very different.

I would cordially like to invite you to kiss my ass for your near treasonous support of this overly bloated and anti-American bill.

I am not ashamed to be an American, in fact I am a proud disabled American veteran.

Though I am ashamed of some of the stupid fucking shit that my legislative and executive branches subject our fine country to.


523 pages, a fair chunk of it is crap, and a fair chunk makes sense, it is a shame that what President Reagan put forth on the last amnesty was abandoned but subsequent sessions of Congress and Presidential administrations. It is yet another case where the people are in the end lied to by the government to garner votes. I have to wonder if the weasels that passed the bills were sincere in their voting.
