What's With That?

A recent AP story reported that a six toed cat is terrorizing a town in Connecticut. He has attacked a few people in the town, and some folks have ended up in the emergency room.

Doesn’t anyone in the town have a .22 caliber rifle?

Fence Sitting

The U.S. House of Representatives voted on legislation in December to build a barrier or fence similar to the one built on the U.S. side of the border between San Diego California and the slum city of Tijuana in Mexico. The purpose of the fence is to stop illegal aliens from crossing into America, and it would cover one-third of the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexican border. This largely unprotected southern border has been, and is being breached on a daily basis by illegal aliens and is a weak spot in our national security.

The legislation was written by U.S. Representative Duncan Hunter, (R) from California. Congressman Hunter estimates the cost of the barrier to be about $2 billion. He points to a sharp drop in the number of illegal aliens caught sneaking into the America through San Diego in recent years as evidence that this type of barrier works.

Attacks on Border Patrol agents along the Mexican border have risen exponentially. The perpetrators of these attacks are illegal aliens, illegal immigrant traffickers, Mexican drug traffickers, and the Mexican military.

To quote a recent Reuters story:

” But the U.S. Department of Homeland Security described the planned barrier, which would run for 698 miles, as a "stupid fence" and said it would most likely be ineffective, while the Mexican government slammed it as a disgrace.” (Emphasis added)

Stupid fence?

Remember September 11?

Remember how the “dots” weren’t connected by anyone?

Remember how fingers were pointed in every direction for missing the “dots”?

Well, F.B.I. Agent Harry Samit warned his superiors more than 70 times that Zacarias Moussaoui was a terrorist and that the al-Qaeda operative was plotting to hijack an airplane before Sept. 11.

Remember how Agent Samit was ignored by higher ranking F.B.I. officials including Director Robert Mueller?

Critics say that a barrier won’t work, and that illegals will find other ways to get into the U.S. The Reuters story said that they sneak in hidden vehicle compartments, including seat backs and gas tanks.

As Illegal aliens and the human and drug traffickers are becoming bolder, so are the Illegals that are already here. Just take a look at the massive protests that have occurred in several cities around the country. Half a million protesters in Los Angeles, fifty thousand in Denver, if the mob mentality were to strike the protesters, the police would be overwhelmed, and cities would become battlefields like Los Angeles after the Rodney King trial.

Some of the pictures of the protesters show them flying Mexican flags and holding signs saying “I’m American too” but what they mean is they’re from one of the Americas, whether Mexico, Central America, or South America. Sorry Jose, that doesn’t make you legal. And it doesn’t make you a U.S. citizen. You’re still an illegal alien. Your militant attitude makes you a problem. It also makes you a threat.

This Mexican militant attitude is a home grown threat to our security here in the U.S. and it’s flying below the radar. This militancy is becoming increasingly aggressive and needs to be monitored and dealt with.

But, I doubt it will be.

Illegal Aliens and Vote Whores

500,000 in Los Angeles, 75,000 in Chicago 50,000 in Denver, 20,000 in Phoenix.

There were thousands in the streets over the past couple weeks protesting House Bill 4437. Some of them are probably here legally. Some are probably legal citizens, whether by birth, or naturalized. But many appeared to be illegals. I grew up in the bad part of my town, I can usually tell an illegal by the way they dress and speak.

Illegals have become emboldened because of the way their cause has been sensationalized by politicians of both major parties. Republicans are just as guilty as Democrats. Most politicians are vote whores. They will prostitute themselves for the sake of a few “latino” votes. (Whatever a “latino” is. I have yet to hear an intelligent definition of that word.)

Too bad ICE doesn’t have the guts to round up as many of the protesters as possible to check their legal status. I’m sure that a significant number of illegal aliens would be apprehended. They could then be deported. If ICE began doing that at every protest demonstration of H.B. 4437, the protests would more than likely stop. But of course, that ain’t gonna happen. The ICE Princess, Julie Myers wouldn’t stand for it.

I wonder if Julie Myers knows how many Muslim terrorists are coming across the border and classified as OTM’s (Other Than Mexican)? I doubt it. After all, her appointment to the position of head of ICE by President George W. Bush was a political favor to her uncle, General Richard Myers, then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

So, the invasion of illegals continues, and sprinkled among the illegal Mexicans are the OTM’s. Most of those who have the authority to do something about it either don’t care or are too dumb to act.

And the beat goes on.

Rest In Peace Buck Owens

August 12, 1929 – March 25, 2006

Buck Owens had 20 number 1 hits in his career. My favorite Buck Owens video was “Act Naturally” with Ringo Starr.
