Bordering on Madness

In a recent confrontation between protesters against the illegal flood of unaccompanied children into the United States and counter-protests by some Hispanic group, one man from the latter group said angrily, "We are as good as you are!" One of the things that make the history of clashes over race or ethnicity such a history of tragedies around the world is that -- regardless of whatever particular issue sets off these clashes -- many people see the ultimate stakes as their worth as human beings. On that, there is no room for compromise, but only polarization. That is why

Obama might think differently if his two daughters were almost killed by a drunk ( three times the legal limit) illegal alien, who plowed into them while they were stopped at a traffic light.

Maybe if he had seen the police car, fire truck and ambulance at the scene he would think twice about letting in more of them to injure and slaughter our loved ones.

Malia just got her license and one day will be off at college driving her car and could get hit by one of her father´s precious, illegal children all grown up.

Maybe THEN he might regret what he´s doing now.

School has not started, yet. When it does,
Obama´s fanny will hit the fire with irate American parents all across the Land finding their children sitting in the back of the bus of resources and spaces, to accommodate illegal aliens. Obama has made Americans third-class occupiers of their own country. Way to go ladies!

Country´s borders have nothing to do with the equality of men, but all to do with LAWS. Each Country has a border so that their laws are applied within their borders, and all Countries have a LEGAL immigration policy. Any person wishing to immigrate to the U.S. can apply legally. You are a citizen of the Country in which you are born and can apply to change your citizenship to the Country of your choice.

If they are so good, they should prove it by staying in their own countries and making them as desirable as the United States.

"We are as good as you are!"
Then why doesn´t your civilization indicate it?

Clean running water and sanitation are third world at best in Mexico and government corruption is no better than Banana Republic level. Coming here won´t fix your cultural problem, because you will never accept the American way, only seek to bring it down to your level, just like what´s been happening in Muslim infested cities in America, such as Nashville and Dearborn-istan.

"One of the reasons why many Americans are reluctant to keep out illegal immigrants -- ... -- is that most Hispanics they encounter seem to be decent, hard-working people."

This point led to an interesting conversation with family over the weekend. One in construction hires only hispanic, I assume illegal. We were told "any parent would want a better life for their children".

Trying to point out what is happening on the Texas border as something far removed from "better life for their children" when Honduran parents put 10 year old girls in the care of coyotes knowing they are likely to be raped was POINTLESS.

Pointing out the one person I know legally here on "the dream act" is beside herself in anguish over what is happening on the Texas border. Besides the risk of sexual harm to the girls she says they are sending the kids over thinking amnesty/citizenship will be automatic and immediate. My friend knows better.

We were told how lazy white people are and they can´t count on them to even show up to work. She never heard my argument about the crime against humanity on BOTH SIDES of the argument. I pointed to our next generation and said why should they have to pay and suffer? I asked what happens when school starts and they get lice, scabies, staph, viruses, etc. She had no answer. Just counting her money so she can put it in the offering plate on Sunday.

"We are just as good as you are." Talk about beside the point. If we don´t permit them to come here illegally it must be because we are racists? We certainly have a nerve,Thinking we have a right to pass such offensive laws.

Real estate taxes pay for schools, and I wouldn´t be surprised if all areas that are being infiltrated with illegal children experience a HUGE hit in home values, along with doubling of school taxes.

Nobody really knows how many illegal aliens are coming into the USA because the numbers the Obama crew puts out are based upon the numbers of illegal aliens that the border patrol has encountered at the borderline. The fact of that matter is as many as five times those numbers may be the actual number of illegal aliens coming across that borderline, since the border patrol knows that they are only catching a percentage of the total number of illegal aliens unlawfully coming across the borderline.

In addition, in recent history about half of the total illegal alien population group has gained entry to the USA with some very liberally issued temporary visa or border crossing card issued to them at an American embassy or consulate in their home countries all over the world. Once inside the USA, those aliens intending to join the massive illegal alien population group, simply disappear into the big liberal Democrat run sanctuary city, and stay indefinitely to await an expected amnesty.

In reality there could be over 20 million illegal aliens here now and not the low ball 11 million figure that the liberal Democrats have been putting out for years in an effort to minimize mass uncontrolled illegal immigration in the minds of the vast majority of Americans who do not pay attention. In addition, if the liberal Democrat amnesty passes, all the legalized aliens could bring all their close foreign relatives here in unlimited numbers.

Wrong question.
By definition, a country establishes its own laws, defends its own borders, and decides how (and whether) to admit new people.
It is not a question of how "good" a person is.
The question is whether the person who wishes to immigrate is willing to comply with OUR laws. Very simple.
And we have immigration laws, run through our Department of State.
Sorry, but there it is.
We could find out how many illegals are in the country. Military intelligence can do the job: assess the amount of food coming in, measure the sewage outflow, measure the traffic in and out, and so on. But we have a political football, so pols do NOT want to know. So they don´t find out.

How can they all even be counted when there are places for them to enter where there is no one to see them? This border thing feels like I´m in an alternate universe. It sure got IRS and other things off the front pages.

IRS Under Fire for Targeting

Daily Signal, by Rob Bluey    Original Article

The Internal Revenue Service, already under investigation for illegally targeting conservative and tea party groups, recently audited the conservative Breitbart News Network in a move that the company says was politically motivated. (Snip) The news drew a swift reaction from Breitbart’s leaders and prompted Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to fire off a letter to the IRS demanding answers about the audit. “For the IRS to behave like a partisan political organization, targeting media organizations whose views differ from the president’s, would represent a gross abuse of power,” Cruz said.

Unfortunately for the rest of America, liberals are not going to realize the damage they have wrought on all of us until they personally experience the ramifications of supporting Barack Obama. At this juncture, maybe an illegal-immigrant-caused mini pandemic will rouse liberals out of the fevered delusion that this president somehow has the best interests of the nation’s children at heart. What is obvious is that Barack Obama does have the best interests of children at heart: illegal immigrant children harboring viruses and communicable diseases. American children who are defenseless against the onslaught, not so much.

What is the core of the American story? What is American history about? For a long time, Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was thought to offer the most succinct and profound reply to these questions. The heart of the American story was said to be the Founding, with its principles of liberty and equality. (Snip) More recently, revisionist historians have developed a different answer to the question of what America’s story is about. From their perspective, at the heart of our country’s history—like the history of any other powerful nation—lies the pursuit of empire, of dominion over others. In this view,

After all his complaints about Republican obstruction this year, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid expressed frustration last night after Republicans helped guarantee a floor vote on a measure he supports. The Nevada Democrat has accused Senate Republicans of chicanery for voting to advance to the Senate floor a Democratic constitutional amendment allowing Congress to regulate all campaign speech and spending. After Monday´s bipartisan 79-18 vote, Reid vented to reporters that Republicans were trying to "stall" the Senate, indicating that he never intended for the campaign finance amendment by Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., to go to a real floor debate. Politico reporter Burgess Everett

There are always lunatics lurking in the crevices of Muslim politics prepared to proclaim a new Caliphate; there isn’t always a recruiting pool in the form of nearly 14 million displaced people (11 million Syrians, or half the country’s population, and 2.8 million Iraqis, or a tenth of the country’s population). (Snip) Many of them will have nothing to go back to. When people have nothing to lose, they fight to the death and inflict horrors on others. That is what civilizational decline looks like in real time.

Even a few white conservative radio hosts became uncomfortable and pushed back against my saying that slavery happened a ga-zillion years ago and it is time for black America to get over it. Apparently, they considered such a statement coming from a black person too Uncle Tom-ish for even them. Their retort is “Surely, you must admit that being African American in America is challenging.” When my reply is, “No, it is not.” their reply is, “Thanks for coming on the show Lloyd. And we´ll be right back.” I am in my sixties and America has come a very long way

Stanton Peele, who studies and treats addiction, has published a fascinating summation of the scientific evidence on drinking and health (hat tip: Instapundit), and it cuts against the grain of much of what you will hear from most public health spokesmen. Drinking alcohol, up to two drinks a day for women and four for men (sorry, ladies, that’s what the data shows!), decreases mortality. Drink up and live longer. The U.S. public health establishment buries overwhelming evidence that abstinence is a cause of heart disease and early death. People deserve to know that alcohol gives most of us a higher life

Two weeks ago, the British press broke the news contained in Professor Alexis Jay’s “Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham.” Between 1997 and 2013, Jay estimated, 1,400 young girls in that Yorkshire town were exploited: gang-raped, trafficked to other cities, threatened, beaten, and forced to bring other girls into the network. The police did not respond to emergency calls from the girls and their families; fathers reported being threatened and even arrested for complaining. (Snip) Jay demonstrates that the public services of England have been marinated in a managerial culture that makes it almost impossible for a frontline

This past Friday, Greta Van Susteren reported on numerous ways the Obama administration has made it difficult for reporters to investigate Benghazi. Van Susteren said that it’s been “like pulling teeth” trying to get answers and that “the Obama administration’s behavior post-Benghazi has been weird; like they’re hiding something.” She went on to say that as Fox News continued to investigate and press for answers, the administration’s behavior got “even weirder. She noted two major press conferences – one with the State Department and one with the CIA – when Fox News was not invited. In addition, Van Susteren reported that she

It was not until Thursday night´s debate in Sacramento between Gov. Jerry Brown and his GOP rival Neel Kashkari that I realized what a gift the challenger has given the Republican Party. Up until then, he hadn´t impressed me much.

The damage done by drug abuse and drug-related crime is enormous, and continues to radiate across American communities. Heroin deaths have recently captured national headlines. Another drug with devastating impact is methamphetamine. We need to think about ending the meth crisis now, because thanks to DEA, Congress, and the advance of science, we are getting closer to being able to do that. There are no panaceas, but we need to take the next step toward reducing the proliferation of meth labs. Meth is produced by thousands of so-called “mom and pop” labs across the United States, and it is having a

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist.

All of the habitat of the common loon, the state bird of Minnesota, could disappear in the lower 48

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S.

Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true.

Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
