Illegal Aliens-Enough said, Stronger border patrol for southern U.S.A.

    If  you are in this country illegally, you are already breaking our laws and should be deported A.S.A.P.!  Enough said.  There are, and will always be room for all peoples from all nations to come and become a U.S. citizen of this great country.  There are legal means of entering this country, and I strongly recommend it to all aliens.  However, when you come across the border illegally, you are shunning our laws which we  as U.S. citizens have to abide by.  From the moment of entering our country illegally you will be breaking our laws from that point on.

     I live right across the border of Canada and visit there quite frequently.  Just try getting back into the U.S. from that border without a passport or some kind of proof you are a U.S. citizen!  They also randomly pick vehicles and people to search to make sure they were all is legal. Why can't the southern borders be that tough?

      In fact I think that it might be harder to enter Mexico than to come back to the U.S.A.  When I visited Mexico a year ago, coming back across the border was a joke! We could have had a van full of illegal immigrants.  No one checked or asked for our US citizenship papers, all they did was ask what country are we from. No search or even a sneak peak in the vehicle.  Enough said!

The Burger King is Not Crazy

The Burger King ad has got to be the last straw for the coddling of political correctness advocates.

Why does even the King have to bite his tongue when using terms that we all use on a daily basis to denote not thinking clearly.

This society has bent over backwards every time some minority group gets offended. What’s happened to majority rule in this country? Pretty soon, we’ll be banned from speaking because we might offend someone.

Being offended is a personal problem and it should stay a personal problem. If I don’t like my hair, I might be offended if someone in a commercial indicates you are only beautiful if you have long flowing silky hair.

Speaking of hair, has anyone ever heard the old adage about the green hair? The scenario is that if someone walked up to you and said “you have green hair!” would you be offended? No. Because obviously—most of us anyway—don’t have green hair. But if someone walked up to you and said “you have a large nose,” and you were sensitive about the size of your nose, you would be offended. So, being offended has more to do with how you feel about yourself than it does how anyone else feels about you. A comment is just a comment. If the shoe fits …

There is a difference if the offensive statement is used to hurt. The person trying to offend a person should be punished as an individual. We should not change the political correctness of the comment to incorporate anyone using it in everyday speech or in a commercial.

Are we creating a society of wimps that get their feelings hurt easily and want everyone else to change to suite them, rather than the way our forefathers did it. Suck it up and move on!!!

The 2010 Census - Snapshot of America?

I just finished filling out the 2010 census. They say they are counting people. What they don’t say is that they are counting people and categorizing them. Making “demographics.” The problem I have with this year’s count is that they are so focused on counting and dividing races that they are leaving out one important race – mixed. There’s not a box for that.

So, the question is not a matter of what bloodline you are, but how you want society to count you. Let’s say, if you have a Hispanic mother and a Black father, you have to make a choice. Hmmm. What shall I choose? Does that give an accurate snapshot of the races in America?

In the matter of categorization, It seems that if a black person and a person of any other race produce children, their offspring are always counted as black. In addition, if two people of mixed race get together, their offspring are also considered black. Is this an 18th century rule? At what point does a person become so mixed they become “raceless?”

When will all this categorization become a problem, thus creating change? What about the blacks? Will they see it as a conspiracy by the whites to eliminate their minority status? A sneaky way of taking away affirmative action? Or will it become a issue for whites? Will they see it as a conspiracy by the blacks to “cleanse” out the white race?

America has always been a melting pot of races, who have always had to bang heads until they learned to get along. At some point I am hoping that we become a nation of just simply Americans.

I'm Not Jay

Okay, I'm not Jay Leno. But that doesn't stop people from running up to me at least twice a day with: "Has anyone told you you look like Jay Leno?"

I need to wear a sign around my neck that says, "Yeah, I know I look like Jay, but would he drive a 1997 rusted-out Ford F-150?" And to add insult to injury, I'm not that funny. Just ask my wife. Not that I don't have opinions about what's happening in the news, but it's more like a What the #$%$?

So...I started this blog to voice my opinions, since nobody around here listens to them any more. Tune in. I can get pretty mouthy.
