Appeasing Away Our Country and Culture

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

Yesterday I shared a quote by Sir Winston Churchill:

“An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last!”

~Sir Winston Churchill~

American is becoming the world’s biggest appeaser.  Heaven forbid that we do or say anything that might possibly make anyone feel uncomfortable or offended.  In our striving to make everyone happy, we aren’t making anyone happy – even ourselves.

It makes me sad – and scared – to see and hear people claiming that anyone who believes that people should follow estabished laws for entering our country are racist, bigoted, and anti-immigration.  Placing negative labels on people is the best way to get attention away from the real issues.  No one wants to be considered racist and bigoted and against the very thing upon which our country was built. 

Even in church I hear people saying “But the illegal immigrants are just poor people coming here for a better life.  How can we deny them the opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their families?”  If so, then they should stop crossing the border in the dead of the night and getting ID’s, social security numbers and drivers licenses illegally.  Stop breaking in line – go back and do it legally.  We want you here if you can have the strength of character and perseverance to do it the right way. 

To borrow from a country song, “You’ve got to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything.”  We’re falling for just about everything that people are willing to shout loud enough about and make a big enough scene about .  We don’t want to feel “uncomfortable” or be accused of not being “tolerant.”  We’ve reached the point of not being willing to take a stand for anything.  Everything is all right.  We’ll tolerate any and everything.  We don’t have the courage to say that some things are simply WRONG. 

Our country was founded by CHRISTIANS who came here for freedom of religion.  Recognizing our Christian heritage and celebrating it does NOT deny non-Christians their religion.  Rather, denying “In God We Trust” on our currency, in our history books and in our pledge is denying our own history.

Our country is directly threatened by radical Islam.  Fighting Islamic terrorists is honorable and necessary.  Mistakes made by .001% of our soldiers does not negate the wonderfully courageous efforts of 99.999% of them.  Spouting anti-war rhetoric does not negate the fact that our soldiers are dying every day to give U.S. citizens the right to protest and criticize their country and president.

Our country was founded on freedom based on law.  When we reward lawbreakers with privileges not given to law-abiders, we undermine the foundation of our country.

President Bush was fairly elected in both 2000 and 2004.  Certainly 2000 was close, but the law was followed and he was correctly chosen as our president.  To not give him the respect due the leader of the greatest nation on earth is unpatriotic and childish.  You can disagree with people without disrespecting them. President Bush deserves our respect based simply on the fact that he is our duly elected president.  Period.

So we will appease the illegal immigrants, we will appease the radical Muslims, we will appease the left-wing anti-war protestors, we will appease the history revisionists, and eventually we WILL be eaten by the crocodile of appeasement.  That crocodile is already well into his meal of USA a la Appeasement.

Illegal Immigration – A Solution?

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

This could be the solution to the Illegal Immigration issue.  I received this via email today, and as usual when things are forwarded, there’s no telling if it’s true or not.  But whether or not it’s true is irrelevant.  It’s a darn good idea.  What do you think? 

I have a friend who is president of his homeowner’s association in Washington D.C. They are having a terrible problem with trash on the side of the road that is around his association’s homes.The reason according to Wallace (my friend) is, there is being built just next to them, six new homes…..big ones! Wallace said the trash is coming from the Mexican work crews working at the construction sites. (McDonald Bags, Burger King trash, etc). He has pleaded with the site supervisors and the general contractor to no avail, called the City,County, the Police and got no help.

 So………………guess what some people in his community did?  They organized about twenty folks, named themselves The “Inner Neighborhood Services” to go out at lunch time and “police” the trash themselves.

It is what they did while picking up the trash that is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!  They got some navy blue baseball caps and had the initials “INS” in gold put on the caps. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist, however, to understand what they hoped people would think it means.

Well the day after their first pick up detail, with them wearing their caps and some carrying cameras; 46 out of 68 of the construction workers did not show up for work the next morning!!!!!!!!….  and haven’t come back yet!!!!! It has been ten days. 

Now the General Contractor, I understand is madder than hell, but can’t say anything publicly, because he could be busted for hiring “illegal aliens”.  Wallace and his bunch can’t be accused of impersonating INS folks, because they have it on their home owner association records the vote to form the new committee within their association, plus they informed the INS about what they were doing in advance, and the INS said basically according to Wallace…………..”Have at it”!

Since I recently had to pick up trash left by nearby Hispanic workers, I could identify with the frustration of the real or imagined homeowners.

Hat tip to RC for a little levity amidst all the uproar about illegal immigrants.

Vinnie at My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy also has an idea for solving the illegal immigration problem.

Quote For The Day

Monday, May 15th, 2006

“The world’s greatest fool is the person who waits for his ship to come in when he didn’t send one out.”


Our world is full of these fools – people who expect to receive free what others must toil for: illegal aliens, healthy welfare recipients, to name two.

Freedom Of Speech: Not If You Disagree

Freedom Of Speech: Not If You Disagree

Cross posted from CommonSenseAmerica by Christi S. King

The far left relies on their `right to freedom of speech’ whenever their words (and diatribes) are questioned but it seems that the far left believes they are the only ones entitled to this right.

From WBBM 780-Chicago

Unruly Crowd Shuts Down Immigration Debate

A community forum on immigration ended just about as fast as it began Thursday night in the Logan Square neighborhood when protesters disrupted the event and shouted down the controversial participants.

“No free speech for terrorists!” chanted the demonstrators who crowded inside the Fourth Congregational Church at 2625 N. Tallman Ave., where the event was being held.

WBBM Newsradio 780’s Steve Grzanich reports organizers had barely started the introductions when the noisy protest began.

The demonstrators succeeded in stopping what was supposed to be a debate between advocates of immigration rights and a group called the Illinois Minuteman Project which supports stricter enforcement of U-S immigration laws.

“They have to know that their racist ideas are not going to be tolerated,” said protestor Maria Melquiades of Chicago. “Racism kills. You don’t debate racism,” she said.

“All immigrants are welcomed and Minutemen are not,” said protestor John Eriksen of Chicago. “Where they are, they need to be shouted down because they are racists and Nazis,” he added.

The forum had to be cancelled when police were called in to disperse the protestors. Officers arrested one demonstrator for disorderly conduct.

Hmmm, the far left has apparently decided that they will dictate what can and cannot be debated in America. What part of freedom of speech do they not understand?

When people are silenced and forced to live in fear of repercussion because of words, thoughts, and ideas, where is the freedom?

That is not America. That, my friend, is the ugly face of communism.

Tuesday Assessment of the “Immigration” Rallies

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2006

As far as I’m concerned, the “immigration” rallies were a big zero.  I’m only one minute cog in the vast wheel of our country, but the rallies/protests/boycotts didn’t affect my life one bit. There was the usual traffic on the roads and the usual crowds in the stores.

Any reasonable American understands that it is detrimental to our country – to our self-respect and to the respect that others have for our country – to tell millions of people that it is okay to break our laws – not only okay but that we’ll reward them for breaking our laws.

Nope.  It’s a stupid idea.  It has nothing whatsoever to do with racism.  It has nothing whatsoever to do with hate.  It has nothing whatsoever to do with compassion or the lack thereof.  It has to do with not wanting people in our country who have blatantly broken our laws and who have shown disrespect and a willingness to take advantage of our generosity.

We welcome legal immigrants.  Follow the rules, and you’re welcome here.

The May 1 “Immigration” Boycott

Monday, May 1st, 2006

Looks like there will be lots of people demonstrating today, Monday, May 1st, for “immigration reform.”  Sounds good, but it’s not what the demonstrations and boycott are about.  It’s about legalizing the illegal activity of millions of people.

(1) This is a nation of laws.

(2) If someone from another country wants to become an American, that person should follow the lawful channels.  It isn’t too much to require people from other countries to follow the established procedures to obatain admission to the United States.

(3) Giving amnesty or any concessions to these law-breakers will only make more people willing to become illegal invaders.  It is also a slap in the face the the millions of immigrants upon which this country was founded.  It is a slap in the face to the millions who have followed the law to become citizens.

Phil Valentine and De-magnetizing America

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

Each afternoon on my way home from work, I listen to the last few minutes of the Dave Ramsey show – I’m a major fan of his.   Then there’s a few minutes of news, and then there’s the Phil Valentine show.  I had never listened to Phil Valentine until his show was moved recently to the 4:00 – 7:00 time slot.  I knew he had a radio show, but it wasn’t on at a time that I could listen to it.  I actually taught his oldest son a few years ago when the son was in fifth grade.  He was in one of my math classes…which is kinda funny since I’m now a reading specialist.  But I’ve always loved math, too.   

I digress.  Back to Phil’s radio show.  Recently he has been saying that we don’t need to deport illegal immigrants.  If we de-magnetize America – stop making it so attractive to illegals – they’ll leave on their own.  He’s having a town meeting this Thursday in Franklin, Tennessee to discuss the issue.  Here is part of what he has written about the situation:

America is finally at the boiling point and it’s as much over our inaction as it is the illegal aliens’ action. Americans were paying close attention at not only the numbers but also the message. Protesters carried signs reading, ‘If you think I’m “Illegal” because I’m Mexican, learn the true history because I’m in my homeland’ and ‘North America: The Stolen Continent.”

This is the part of the story that is not being reported by the mainstream media. It’s also the part that bothers Americans the most yet they’re not sure exactly why. It’s just a gut feeling.

It’s time to trust your gut.

What all these signs and all these Mexican flags mean is the movement of Reconquista is now out in the open. Reconquista, or Reconquest, is a huge movement within the Latino community. It refers to the section of the United States taken in the Mexican-American war after Mexico invaded Texas, which had fought for and won its independence from Mexico several years prior. Apparently a significant number of Mexicans have held a grudge down through the generations and they have been plotting to take the territory back. One Mexican-American activist offered this warning: “We are reconquering Aztlan without firing a shot, house by house, block by block!” Aztlan is what we know as Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Some hard-line reconquistas also throw in Utah, Nevada, Wyoming and Colorado.

The really scary part is they’ve convinced a good number of what the border patrol calls OTMs, or Other Than Mexicans, to join their cause. The plan is to invade America with enough Latinos to vote in their own representatives who are loyal to Mexico. That’s why there’s such a big push for election-day voter registration that Hillary Clinton is so fond of. That’s why such a stink has been made over Georgia’s law requiring photo ID in order to vote. This is all being fueled by organizations like La Raza, a racist Hispanic organization that places La Raza (The Race) above all else.

The Immigration Debate and a Society Unable to Say NO

Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

There’s an excellent article written by Rabbi Aryeh Spero at Human Events Online.  He describes our current situation in regards to illegal immigration and terrorism.  DEFINITELY worth reading.

What makes citizens of a country submit to the demands of people who are not even citizens? What is it that makes people here for decades and centuries cower in front of those here illegally, arriving only yesterday? What is it that makes people unwilling to lay claim to their own land and country?

It is guilt. It is fear. It is a brainwashing that has convinced so many that every member of the world is entitled to U.S. constitutional and welfare “rights.” It is a society that no longer believes in itself as a specific culture or even a sovereign country. Worse, it is a society so emotionally weak that it will accept disease, terrorism, crime, bankruptcy and the disintegration of its own chosen laws rather than being called racist, even though such charges are false.

Forty years of sick liberalism has created a public so unsure of its own legitimacy yet so sure of every other culture’s and nation’s goodness that it cannot say “no” to anyone perceived outside the mainstream. Being an outsider proffers today a nobility and entitlement to “rights” that is beyond the scope and hope of those viewed as merely regular Americans.

In fact, in today’s America, the more hostile one is to the country and the more brazen against its historic mores, the more protection and concern comes one’s way. Why? Because what greater way to demonstrate one’s “tolerance,” “sensitivity” and “understanding” than when given precisely to those who are your greatest threat. Showing goodness to your own is labeled “tribalism” while being tolerant of those that differ and even despise is the most shining example of “tolerance.”

In today’s America, tolerance is God, and the faithful will sacrifice all — even their security — to their secular God. Never in history has there been such a need for people to feel good about themselves as is happening in the West. Never have a people become so insecure that they feel unworthy absent the approval of those who deride their ways. Thus, can the foreigner in the land rise with impudence against his benefactors, demanding from them and daring them to say “no.”

Whereas common sense dictates that the way to find a criminal is by investigating the men who match the description of those seen at the crime scene, emotionally enfeebled America searches in airports for benign grey haired old ladies with blue eyes and dainty cheek bones rather than young Muslim/Arab men with angry facial muscles, simply because to do the rational may invite the accusation of profiling and thus “racism,” albeit every terrorist has thus far been an Islamic jihadist, not to mention how it is radical Islam that encourages terrorism not Lenox, Mass. Unitarianism.

NBC’s Dateline looks for racism not by Muslims against Christians but in NASCAR Christians against Muslims, even though North Carolina Protestantism does not speak of others as infidels as does today’s Islam, constantly. NBC represents the corrosive elitist notion that those foreign are harmlessly noble while mainstream Christian America is congenitally racist and must, therefore, every day prove itself non-racist and tolerant.

This already forty year brainwashing job on Americans by academia and the media has created an American public so tentative about itself and so submissive that it rarely sticks up for its own rights and needs when in conflict with a “minority” out of fear of being labeled a racist and, worse, feeling that it is indeed racist.

I can hear the “amens!” ringing out as you read this.  He continues:

. . . many spearheading the flouting of our laws regarding immigration are the Barney liberals who never believed in an indigenous American culture or a truly sovereign America. They, in fact, subscribe to a borderless America. They are universalists and transnationalists who view America as nothing special and have no understanding of how and why this country achieved its greatness. Others are simply grownup children, bereft of any knowledge of history and reality.

Many are old fashioned communists who take up any cause they see as disruptive to America, its institutions and its establishment. Masquerading as human rights activists, they are fascists craving an America socially engineered under their hegemony. Unfortunately, while most Americans do not see themselves on the left, they have been snookered by the high-sounding terms of multiculturalism and unearned “rights for all” used by the left to disenfranchise regular, good willed Americans. We have become, unwittingly, complicit in our own demise.

Though I bear no ill will to the illegals and know many of them, I’m disturbed by how this issue has revealed an American weakness that if not reversed imperils our longevity as a specific and distinct culture. I speak not of race but values; not of place of origin but a common American ethos and love and pride in Americanism.

I fear what will happen to an America ruled not by its republican laws but emotion, not by what is right and legal but by who screams the loudest — mob rule, the jungle.

A people no longer able to assert its right to say “no” out of fear and guilt as to what others will say or charge is a nation that is allowing its mores and habits, its heritage and distinctiveness, to be determined by those accusing the loudest. Not only will America loose the immigration issue but the war on terror itself.

Watching America fold to La Rasa and other race mongers, how afraid of America can the jihadist enemy be, knowing that Americans will not protect themselves if by so doing they are accused of “Islamophobia,” the latest concocted form of “racism”. To think, a great and powerful nation brought to its knees not by a power stronger militarily but simply because it was afraid of being called a name, simply because it craved its enemy’s validation over its own security.

I have not read a more succinct and intelligent summary of what is going on today.

We Already Have a Guest Worker Program

Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

Entire text of the following is cross posted from Right Truth:We already have a ‘guest worker’ program for illegal immigrants (criminal invaders), but most people don’t know about it.  On the surface the “H” Visa appears to allow only highly skilled, or professional, workers into the US.  But that is NOT the case.  Skilled, unskilled and agricultural workers  can all enter the US under the “H” Visa.  According to Bill West’s article in FrontPageMagazine:

What we do historically have, and have had for many years, is…a guest worker program.  That is the “H” Temporary Worker visa.  Seldom in the current clamor over illegal alien workers and legalization and “guest workers” is the existing “H” visa program even mentioned.

“H” visas traditionally have been used by many high-tech employers, especially in recent years employers like computer engineering firms, to bring in well educated foreign technicians, engineers and scientists who, while on paper are paid the equivalent of their US counterparts, in reality are paid less.  This brand of white-collar corporate fraud has not been aggressively investigated by INS in the past and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) currently, thanks primarily due to lack of manpower and other investigative priorities set by management.  Congress has essentially ignored this issue.  Therefore, this “H” visa abuse became widespread and mostly ignored.

The understanding of the “H” Visa is misleading.  It sounds  like ONLY highly skilled workers can enter the USA on this visa, but in fact, “A review of the “H” visa system reveals that it is actually quite broad. The H-1B category, the most common one encountered, covers “specialty occupation” workers.  H-1C is for nurses.  H-2A is for temporary agricultural workers.  H-2B is for other temporary workers, both skilled and unskilled. “ Another very important fact that Mr. West makes is that there is already a procedure in effect for legalizing illegals who are already in the country. It is called “Cancellation of Removal and was revised under the 1996 version of the Immigration and Nationality Act and is found at Title 8 US Code,  Section 1229b.”

Essentially, an illegal alien who has been in the US for ten years or longer, … will be eligible for cancellation of removal and would be allowed to remain permanently in the US and eventually be allowed to apply for naturalized US citizenship.

One of the key elements to obtaining cancellation of removal, however, is the alien must be in removal (deportation) proceedings before an Immigration Court. This means the alien, if not caught by immigration authorities, must surrender himself to those authorities to be placed in such proceedings so they can apply for the relief. source

Excuse me, but doesn’t that sound a bit retarded?!?! We who are fighting against criminal invaders to our country don’t understand why current laws are not enforced.  But, if this law were to be enforced, thousands and even millions, might turn themselves in to authorities and the entire “system now would very quickly collapse”.

Essentially, an illegal alien who has been in the US for ten years or longer, who meets the qualifications noted above, will be eligible for cancellation of removal and would be allowed to remain permanently in the US and eventually be allowed to apply for naturalized US citizenship.  One of the key elements to obtaining cancellation of removal, however, is the alien must be in removal (deportation) proceedings before an Immigration Court.  This means the alien, if not caught by immigration authorities, must surrender himself to those authorities to be placed in such proceedings so they can apply for the relief.

Mr. West suggests that while we are debating all these new potential bills and laws, we might just want to look at the laws that are already on the books and try enforcing them! Good luck with that Mr. West!

Protecting What You Value and Illegal Immigration

Wednesday, April 12th, 2006

It’s really quite simple.  When you VALUE something, you protect it, and you take care of it.  You don’t allow others to devalue and demean it.  Others take their cue about the value of something from how the owners feel about it.

Is it any wonder that illegal immigrants are marching and demanding their “rights” when Americans have acted like it’s no big deal to enter our country illegally?  Why should they obey a law that isn’t enforced and obviously hasn’t been a big deal to us for a long time? 

Our MSM and liberals act like someone from another country shouldn’t have to do anything to be an American citizen.  To them, citizenship isn’t something of value.  Democrats are even urging illegals to vote – a rather desperate and transparent attempt to gain votes. 

But what happens to any organization that doesn’t have any admission requirements?  When anyone can join without doing anything to support the group or make it better?  Here’s what happens: The organization is without any strength or standards.  No conscience or consequences.

Just as a house that is neglected soon falls into disrepair, our nation has fallen into disrepair because we have not held our elected officials accountable for upholding our laws.  Our news channels and liberals are so busy criticizing all things American and highlighting and emphasizing everything negative that other nations are following suit.  We can’t expect others to respect the United States when we don’t do it ourselves.

Until all Americans can stand up and support our country and be proud of it, insist that our laws are upheld and that citizenship is worthy of effort and honor, we’ll continue to struggle with illegal immigrants and worldwide disdain.
