A day without………aw come on, what a load of $#!+

Happy May day y’all.
Been watching news most of the day – weird to have cable TV at work now. All these demonstrations, and walkouts and stuff just doesn’t make a whole lotta sense to me. A day without immigrants? What – do they all return to their country of origin for a day? While I thought at first, hmmm, what an interesting way to show your feelings about the screwed up mess that Washington D.C. has made with our immigration system, then I learned that this was organized BY and FOR ILLEGAL immigrants!!!
What in the world?!?!?!?!!!? You’re going to advertise the fact that you are breaking the law just being here?? Not very smart!
Ok, so you’re here in MY country illegally; and you want special treatment? WHY?
Yes, I am the descendant of an immigrant; but those people came to this country LEGALLY. They followed the rules. They came, LEARNED THE LANGUAGE and got jobs. While I’m sure they still spoke their native tounge at home, they worked hard and learned the English language. (Ok, so Irish/English may not be a totally foreign language, but still…..)
I’m kinda irritated by this whole thing. Not long ago I remember hearing how the INS was too busy looking for terrorists to stop people from sneaking into our country illegally. Terrorists? Yes, 9/11 was a terrible tragedy. Yes a WHOLE lot of innocent people were killed. But the IDIOTS in D.C. have gotten things screwed up again. The horrible USA Patriot act. Ugh. Sending the FBI on wild goose chases after every male named Habib. Ignoring the flood of people entering the country illegally from our southern border, in order to chase “terrorists”. I don’t know. IMHO President Bush has been an amazing president, but his coworkers and underlings in our nation’s captial are acting like a pack of idiots.
I know, I’m rambling…
Here’s my thoughts.
1) You want to come to our country – GREAT! It’s an awesome place to live, lots of freedom, opportunity and other cool stuff. But FOLLOW THE RULES!
2) If you’re here illegally – you’re in trouble. This may sound extreme/stupid/short sighted whatever, but – all the illegals and indocumentados that were protesting today – I would have cheered if the local police had erected a fence around y’all, and started hauling people off. Yes, U.S. CITIZENS have the right to protest, demonstrate, etc. Buy if you’re here ILLEGALLY – YOU BROKE THE LAW and therefore are not entitled to the same rights as law abiding CITIZENS.
3) I understand people are here to get a better life. That’s the whole concept this country was founded upon over 200 years ago. People wanting to get away from a bad life and start fresh. Who doesn’t want that? BUT YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE RULES! It’s not that difficult to become a legal U.S. citizen. Yes, it takes time. No, it’s not an overnight process.
4) Just because you came into my country, and were not born here why does that grant you some special privilege/tax break/preferencial treatment in hiring, etc? You should be hired based on your qualifications, not your skin color, native tongue or anything else.

Alright, I’m done now. I’m interested in some comments on this one 🙂

Until next time…..

    Amen my brother! As a member of a Native American tribe I can partially claim that this is MY land. But, that other part of me comes from immigrants. Have I looked into where they all came from specifically? No. But, guess what? I speak English and so did my great-great grandparents. And also on the subject of English…my Native ancestors had to eventually learn English. It is the language of America and we should not have to cater to all the other languages coming in. Guess what? When you are in San Francisco (which has a high Asian population), you do not see documentation in Chinese. It’s in English! Those protests were about to make my blood boil! I am all for your idea about fencing them in! I sense a new MasterCard commercial in the works!Taking the time off from work to protest you being in the land of the free illegally: $56 (give or take)Having the INS bust your ass for not having authentic papers: Priceless.

    One solution to the border situation: send some Apache helicopters down and shoot half a dozen or so illegals. The rest will get the message. After all, they just invaded the United States, and that’s what happens to invaders…
