In Memoriam

This coming Monday is Memorial Day. Most people are just looking forward to a three day weekend, which is understandable; I'm looking forward to a three day weekend, too. However, I hope every American, every citizen of a free nation, will stop and take at least a moment to remember and give thanks for all those who gave their lives so we could have the liberty too many of us not only take for granted, but promiscuously abuse.

You don't necessarily have to visit a cemetary and place a flag on a veteran's grave, although that would be nice. Just remember, if only for a moment. And remember, too, those veterans who fought for us who aren't dead. If you know of a veteran in your neighborhood, pay him a visit and say thanks for his sacrifice. If you don't know any veterans personally, why not make a donation to a veteran's hospital or a nursing home that has veterans among it's residents? These are some little things we can do to show our appreciation.

And remember, also, that these veterans fought for us to have liberty, NOT libertinism. Understanding the difference between these two concepts is a big thing we can do to honor our vets.

So, enjoy your three day weekend, I'm going to. But remember. Remember.

They deserve it.

You Can't Have MY Country!

I watched the President's Monday night speech on illegal immigration and I was as disappointed, no, outraged, as I thought I'd be.

I was initially hopeful when I heard media reports that House Republicans would be pleased with Bush's speech. Then I heard rumblings about the National Guard (NG) being put on the border and, yes, I was hopeful that Bush had finally got it. But then I saw in my local paper that Vicente Fox had called Bush about the NG rumors and Bush had reassured him that the NG would only be used temporarily. That's when I got mad. And the speech only made me madder.

Sure, Bush started off by trying to talk a good game about securing the borders. He promised more Border Patrol (BP) agents-- by 2008. Yippee! Just think of all the illegals who can come in in the mean time! He talked up technology--infrared drones, virtual fences, and other sci-fi stuff--and yes, he said he'd put the NG on the border, but no more than 6000 and they'd have no authority to do anything. All of this was supposed to pacify all of us Americans who believe passionately in securing our nation's borders, and stopping the flood of illegals, before we deal with the 12 million illegals who're already here. Did Bush really think he could get away with insulting our intelligence? He thought wrong.

I voted for Bush twice. I didn't do that because I agreed with everything he stood for. I did it because I thought Bush was a conservative who could be counted on to put America first, before globalism, before corporatism, before socialism, before illegal aliens and their leaders; I was wrong. What Bush showed me in his speech last night was that he's got a "blame America first" mentality that usually belongs to liberals. Bush is terrified of being seen as anti-Hispanic, why else would he virtually guarantee Mexican president Vicente Fox that the NG would be a paper tiger on the border? Why else does he continually parrot the illegals-are-doing-jobs-Americans-won't-do party line even though the Hispanic Pew Center showed that Americans are the majority of the workers in all the industries that employ the most illegals?

President Bush seems to have forgotten that he was elected by Americans, to protect America, not by Vicente Fox and the millions of his countrymen who are in America illegally. America owes nothing to Mexico and the rest of Latin America. We aren't to blame for their poverty and have no obligation to atone for our prosperity by committing national suicide. Vicente Fox, like previous Mexican presidents, wants an open border so he can ship Mexico's poverty problem north and thereby avoid making necessary reforms within Mexico. He wants to keep the status quo because the corruption makes certain Mexicans very, very rich. But Fox also wants to regain the Southwest, which Mexico lost to America in the 1846 War. He's lauching a demographic war against the US, hoping to achieve a critical mass of unassimilated Mexicans on US soil who, through the ballad or the bullet, will wrench the Southwest away from America and hand it back to Mexico.

Bush should've forthrightly told Fox that the US is a sovereign nation, with legitimate borders and legitimate immigration laws that must be respected by all foreigners, including Mexicans. He should've told Fox that America isn't a welfare program for poor Mexicans (and other Latin Americans). Bush should've told Fox that needing a job doesn't entitle poor Mexicans to break American law. And, finally, Bush should've told Fox that he can't tell America not to put troops on her southern border when Mexico has troops on its southern border. Then, last night, Bush should've told the American people what he told Fox.

Of course, none of the above happened. Bush opted to go pc, talking briefly about border enforcement then lingering on the supposed need for a "temporary" guess worker program and waxing elegant about America's immigrant heritage, forgetting that past immigrants came here legally. And that's the crux of the issue. Either you believe in the legitimacy of American law, or you don't. Those who don't, and that crowd seems to include the President, aren't going to come right out and say so. Instead, they'll hide their disdain for American law--and sovereignty--behind phony compassion and specious anti-racism, claiming that enforcing our laws is heartless and bigoted and no one wants to be that.

Those of us who love America, her history, culture, language, and heritage, and who value her sovereignty as much as our own lives must stand up and make our voices heard. We've left the streets in the hands of those who're working for America's demise. After the President's speech last night, we know we can no longer afford to stay silent. The House Republicans get it; a few governors get it; the Minutemen get it. And we get it. It's time to let them know it.

JP Tells It like It Is

Below is a reprint of a post I saw on the blog JP's Mind. It's great. Read, think, and enjoy.

I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America and see what happens. Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door.

Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.

I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, that is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE?

I think that if you feel that homosexuality is wrong it is not a phobia, it is an opinion.

I have the right NOT to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.

When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling, it is the Law of Probability.

I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigarettes, a newspaper, or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact, if you want to be an American citizen you should have to speak English!

My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over here and disrespect ours.

I think the police should have the right to shoot your sorry ass if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the words "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines.

I don't think just because you were not born in this country you are qualified for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans, or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business.

We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedom so that, decades later, [their citizens] could come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document and open to their interpretations.

I don't hate the rich; I don't pity the poor.

I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television. That doesn't stop you from watching them.

I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more. If it ticks you off, go and invent the next operating system that's better and put your name on the building.

It doesn't take a village to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the kid and smack their little behinds when necessary, and say "NO!".

I think tattoos and piercings are fine if you want them but please, don't pretend they are a political statement. And, please, stay home until that new lip ring heals. I don't want to look at your ugly, infected mouth as you serve me French fries!

I am sick of "Political Correctness". I know a lot of black people and not a single one of them was born in Africa, so how can they be "African-Americans"? Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe. I am proud to be from America and nowhere else!

And if you don't like my point of view, tough...


I was asked to send this on if I agree or delete if I don't. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having "In God We Trust" on our money and having "God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the 14% to Shut Up and BE QUIET!!!

Just Say "NO!" to Cinco de Mayo

Like all true Americans I am furious at these illegal aliens taking to the street to demand rights they have no right to demand. However, I'm also increasingly angry with my fellow true Americans who, in the comfort of their homes, bitch and complain about the illegal alien invasion of this country but won't do a damn thing about.

In my previous post, "Dissing the American Worker", I suggested something true Americans could do to make our voices heard. I called for a national strike on May 5, Cinco de Mayo, to show our lawmakers, the mainstream media, and the illegals just who is the real backbone of America's economy. The plan was for all true Americans to stay home from work and school and to let the empty offices, factories, and classrooms speak more loudly than any demonstration could. I still believe we should do the strike, but I've changed the focus a little.

Instead of taking off from work this coming Friday, I'm calling on all true Americans to boycott every Cinco de Mayo parade and celebration and to keep their children home from school because most schools will be glorifying the holiday. We must NOT participate in this show of Mexican nationalism at a time when American nationalism is routinely denounced as racism. We must send a message to Hispanic activists that we will NOT be bullied into silence and inaction by their specious accusations of racism and we must tell our government that we demand border security and that we're fed up with politicians playing politics with America's sovereignty. And that's what the whole illegal alien issue is really all about, American sovereignty.

America is an independent, sovereign nation with every right to have immigration laws and to control it's border. That fact is what's really under attack by the illegal aliens and their liberal allies. When illegals march in the streets demanding amnesty they're effectively saying that American law is inherently illegitimate and, frighteningly, millions of guilt-ridden, self-hating (white) liberals agree with them. These people view America the way Hamas views Israel: as an illegitimate country with no right to exist. Enforcment of our immigration laws is a declaration of our national legitimatcy, that's why illegals, Hispanic activists, the Mexican government, and American liberals want it to stop. All these people want us to accept the notion that America's right to exist is nullified by its racism, sexism, classism, imperialism, and oppression and that poor Mexicans--(non-white) poor people everywhere--therefore have the right to enter America at will. An open border is the way America atones for its sins.

All true Americans must zealously reject this nation-destroying, leftist doctrine. We must stand up for OUR country, OUR laws, OUR sovereignty. We must boldly declare that while true immigrants--people who come here legally and assimilate into our culture--are warmly welcomed, illegal aliens will NOT be tolerated. We must fearlessly join the battle to save the land of the free and the home of the brave. The days of celebrating other peoples' nations and cultures while our own are smeared and trashed are over. Just say "NO!" to Cinco de Mayo. Let the war begin.
