I'm stressing about border control again.

Help me out here. Whatever your feelings about border control and illegal immigration, please take this survey:

Online Survey.

Vicente Fox is pissing me off again. Something is WRONG with that man. First he spouts racial remarks about 'jobs that blacks won't do', now he's tripping on a fence being erected to keep the illegals out. I can't stand listening to his crap anymore.

He needs to read THIS!

Mr. President, I'll do that job!

I'll say it again - those jobs that Vicente Fox says blacks won't even do are jobs that I have done to stay alive!

As for the fence? We don't need a stinking FENCE! We need a 3 foot thick, 12 foot high WALL manned by armed military. No it's not a Berlin wall you lefty whackos. The Berlin wall was designed to keep people IN. This wall will keep people OUT. Just you read this:


What KIND of people would this wall keep out? From the above article, here is a sampling:

"Our southern border is militarized now as we speak, but not by U.S. Troops. The Mexican military is on and across our borders on a daily basis. The Zetas are crossing at will and firing on our citizens. MS-13 and other violent gangs are waging the battle alongside of the rest. They are participating in and assisting smugglers of drugs, arms and people, and they are not afraid of retaliation from the United States government."

Yo, Vicente! Kiss my white American ass!

Chertoff has to stop farting around and place troops on the damn border..Pull them out of Germany the damn russians arent coming at least not in that direction any more... Besides the MexicanArmy/DrugRunners Tom Tancreado just released a statement that in the last couple of months 50 terrorists have been arrested crossing the border. If 50 got caught how many didn't????

So Monica, tell us how you REALLY feel about border control :)

I'm with you regarding increasing our presence at the US/Mexico border. The leaky faucet needs to be fixed, NOW!

However, we do have another border ~ Canada.

The lax immigration laws in Canadistan mixed with a very porous northern border has my concern and attenion.

I am a mixed bag on this one. The Silly Goose and I live in a neighborhood that (in Real Estate parlance) is "ethnically diverse". We are black/white/hispanic/middle eastern and good mix of retirees who can't afford to be anywhere else.

The entire neighborhood and the police know that I have a "safe house". That translates to "take no shit off nobody".

I am helping the neighbors on one side to learn English and am sponsoring that family for citizen ship. In return I am leaning Spanish. We take care of several elderly couples (1 black, 2 middle eastern and 1 Hispanic) and see that they get to the Doctors offices, etc.

There is an Hispanic men's house on the other side of us. I do not know and will not speculate as to how many of the workers living there are legal. At least one is a gangbanger. As long as they keep up their property and don't fuck with me or my family-by-relation and my family-by-extension we get along. They understand the dark side of my character also. I am an old Vet. Been there done that. If you fuck with me you will die.

1) We must be responsible citizens. This includes resposibility for ourselves and our neighborhoods. We must understand that every action has a consequence and accept the consequences of our actions.

2) Let's give the Border patrol the funding and the support to do their jobs as authorized by Congeress and the President.

3) Let's make being here legally more valuable than just being here however you can get in.

I don't have any answers, and nothing is going to be easy. And it ain't going to be a prettier than a Christmas Card solution. Politically Correct and gee it makes me feel so good are not answers. Assuming the personal responsibility for doing the right and Godly thing with the people who are your neighbors will be a big step in solving the problem

Peace and all good,

Kermit! Honey! You would fit right in here in MY neighborhood too.

Do you remember that we learned as children that America is the 'melting pot'? It's the truth but they're not telling the kids that anymore. It has to do with 'diversity' now. It seems there is a big push to divide ethnicity and accentuate the differences rather than focus on the similarities - the similarities being that we are law abiding citizens, human beings who want to raise our kids, eat, live in a warm and sturdy shelter, work and contribute to our community and to the strength of our country.

We live on a mixed race block as well and it works fine. Everyone on this block is in my country LEGALLY and everyone is working and raising their kids.

I have nothing against legal immigrants. I have a HUGE problem with drug-runners harassing ranchers down Mexico way on their PRIVATE PROPERTY IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The ranchers have NO recourse. The American government will NOT support them if they try to defend their land from trespassers and persons partaking in illegal activities.

Kermit - let me ask you something. If someone trespasses on your bog, and commences illegal activities without your consent, would you have the right to demand that they leave and back that up with firepower if necessary?

Of COURSE you would. Not those ranchers down in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. Those ranchers do not have the same rights that you and I have to defend their persons or their property.

We need a damn wall. Control who comes in and out of this country. Legal immigration - fine. And the damnable Zetas - the Mexican military that WE TRAINED and who have now attached themselves en-masse to the drug cartels (and who Vicente Fox won't hunt down and kill for doing such a thing...) should not - in any way, shape or form - be crossing our borders with impunity. They're Special Forces for Christ sake. They are some bad-ass motherfuckers not some Mexican bandito crap.

Skye - YES - I want the wall on the northern border too. God bless the Canadians - but their government SUCKS! Their government lets ANYONE into their frigging country - and then how easy is it to just waltz across the northern border? Too easy.

Gangbangers next door? Good grief!

The House of Reps passed the Border Security Act on Friday with the fence included.

Will it get by the Senate or be filibustered by the Defeaticrats?

By the third or fourth generation, we have becomea melting pot. For new arrivals we are more like a tossed salad. Each vegetable adds a distinct flavor and style. The salad dressing ties it all together.

The Silly Goose and I think of ousrselves as the neighborhood Vinegar and Oil with a few Italian herbs thrown in.

Peace and all good,

A wall won't solve the problem either. A LOT of these drug runners have dug tunnels! The more successful drug lords have airplanes and helicopters.
It's time we put our wartime technology to work for us and get troops on ALL our borders, including ocean borders!

Alright then! I'm with you on that one tshsmom.

We cannot allow the status quo to continue. I am especially upset that our federal government is attempting to curtail US citizens right to defend themselves or their land. That needs to change, too.

If the feds would STOP obstructing and start supporting people's right to defend themselves a LOT of the problem would be taken care of.

In the words of Kermit (and I agree wholeheartedly) "If you fuck with me you will die."

I've known a few Texans and I have a feeling that there are SEVERAL drug-runners and/or "federales" buried on their ranches.

BTW, the sign on OUR front porch says: "Never mind the dog. BEWARE OF OWNER!"

The key words here I think are resolve and will! Monica, there seems to be a certain lack of it in the US and the UK on the issues you raise, to halt and turn around a migration of cheap labour and foreign criminals gangs and individuals into both counties!

It is easy to see the attraction in the do nothing policy of both governments, by denying there is a problem they are acting like Kings and Queens of olden days and that by closing their eyes and ears, there is no problem. But look what happens to those who ignore the people in the olden days, example France and your own country come to mind just over two hundred years ago. There were revolutions in both countries because of absolute rule, and abandoning the wishes of the masses. This is where I feel we are at on this matter, and these elitists ignore the people’s will at their peril!

If both countries need more labour encourage larger families from your own populations, give them tax breaks and family allowances! Don’t import peoples who are going to undermine the indigenous citizens with cheap labour and start more ghettoes and social problem than you already have! They are always going to be some immigration into counties, but it should be a fair policy that determine the amounts and who comes in! By all means help to build up economies in other countries but not if it is detrimental to your own people!

I feel that any influence that holds any sway over both your President and our Prime Minister are those of big business only, which will always encourage cheap labour in the pursuit of low running cost and higher profits! The power of politics on these particular issues must be returned to the populace of both countries, or a backlash in some way may be forth coming, if indigenous peoples frustrations are not listen to and acted on!

I'm all for the wall. Build it. In Florida, it's safe to say that illegal immigrants are everywhere. We know some. We know some employers that employ them knowing their illegal. It's a very real problem. It's a subject that makes my blood boil. One lady we know escaped Cuba with her two children. She immediately was placed in a duplex within the city. The equivalent to $700-800 per month. She was, per her agreement with the government (?) she agreed that she would work at a church next door doing trivial things. She came to the church and was furious to find out they would not pay her to attend.
No. Not all are like this. But, when they come to America and we, the taxpayers give them everything, they tend to expect it and live with their hand out for more. That's one major problem I have with our government. They basically encourage it.
The wall, while not applying to Cuba, is surely a start. Bring it on!

Would you be so kind as to provide sources and links reporting all the invasions of the Mexican military, their attacks on US civilians and their gang connections?

On a lighter note Justice prevails in Pennsylvania; a judge ruled that the teaching of ID was not science and that it was just a disguised attempt by Christians to teach their propaganda. It is indeed a good day for the American way.

I'm curious - do you have ANY IDEA where I stand on Darwinism vs. Intelligent Design?

tshsmom ... I am a Texans and I am not a drug-runner and don't own a Ranch. But then again, you couldn't pay me to live near the border down there.

Like the sign on your porch. ("Never mind the dog. BEWARE OF OWNER!")

I have a friend named Kelly who puts this motto on her emails:
"A family that prays together stays together... and a family that SHOOTS together better not be MESSED WITH." Her husband got her a pretty pink pistol for valentines. How romantic!

As for the illegals - here's my take. QUIT paying for their medical and allowing their kids to have free services in school. Give them stiff penalties if they get caught working without a visa - deport them. Quit sending them to American prisons (where we have to pay for their room and board) and send them back where they came from. Make it difficult for them to get here (walls are nice, big guys with guns are good, too). I say this with a heavy heart, though, because I know a bunch of them... living in Texas, they are everywhere. Over 50% of Texas is hispanic, and everywhere you go it's bilingual. In fact, in some cities towards the border (even San Antonio has been known for this), if you don't speak Spanish, you are not likely to get the job you apply for. I lived in Houston for a while and I had illegal neighbors. Nice people, a whole family living in one house... mom, dad, uncle, aunt, three kids, their kids, etc.... but when you get down to it... it can come to no good to just invite people in to suck up American tax dollars. I certainly couldn't have afforded to support the family next door. Why should I be FORCED to use my tax dollars to do so?

Do I know for sure where you stand? No, what does that have to do with anything? Do you know where I stand on immigration? No, but why do you care?

I can assume that since you are into home schooling that you are a bible thumper who thinks the world is 10,000 years old and that dinosaur bones were put here by God to test our faith. But that would just be generalizing the home school population and we know that all you goonbats aren't all carbon copies of each other right?
