It was rough. I went to work. I made a bank deposit (thankfully the bank had not removed the language option, and had I needed it I could have chosen to conduct my business in Spanish). I ate lunch at a restaurant. I finished my work early and went home to take a nap. I made my own dinner and watched “24″. And, somehow, even without help from the Mexican criminals, I went to sleep.
And, in spite of their rhetoric, make no mistake, they are criminals. Maybe they were good law abiding people while they were in their country, but in choosing to break our laws in coming here, they are now criminals. And if we actually enforced our laws they would be in trouble. But, alas, we don’t care to enforce our laws, we just like to write them, enforcing them is too messy for the USA.
Language, or I should say, the shifting of word meanings is the big player in the invasion debate. Not laws, language is the big player. If the crooks say they are not criminals, then their supporters agree to use that language, and the foundation of the debate shifts. If the ciminal invaders say they have Rights, then their supports agree to use that falisy and the foundation of the debate shifts. When the criminal invaders are called immigrants, or citizens, or workers, then their supporters agree to use that language and the debate shifts. Language is transient, and apparently every word can be corrupted to mean things other than its actual meaning.
I once believed that this country was a nation of laws. I believed that under the law everyone was equal. I once believed that there is such a thing as justice in this land, even if not in any other country on Earth in the USA one could get justice. I once beleived that our government would enforce our laws, for our benefit, to increase order in our society, to create an equal playing field for all of our citizens, even to insulate us from the harm we can do to ourselves, and for our general protection from all threats internal and external. It is impossible to believe such things anymore, not with criminals openly demonstrating in our streets their demands for their supposed rights under our system of government. And, our government did not arrest a single one, as far as I can determine. So much for a nation of laws.
I survived May Day, but now I am sending out a may day to save our country. Enforce our borders. Enforce our laws. Change the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution to read that only people born here of people legally within our borders are entitled to become citizens, we have to end the incentive for illegals to enter the USA with the intent to give birth and thereby win the citizenship lottery for their children. We need to construct an enforceable border on our south and then enforce it. Amnesty must not happen ever again. We tried it once and it only led to our current situation where we have some considering its use again. Where does amnesty end? If we don’t gain control over who enters our country, and if we continue to let those who enter illegally to bully us and alter the meaning of our words, we will face the same situation again and again. We must not capitulate, again. Never again.
I survived May Day, but will the USA survive it?
5/3 Update: One man knows the right thing to do, an Arizona Sheriff forms volunteer posses to capture illegals. The attached poll was 97% good idea/ 3% bad idea when I voted.
