A Message to a Friend on Immigration and Dreamers

May 27, 2014

A while ago, in a response to a video I posted, you asked me about “dreamers” and I forgot to responds to you with my opinion. I am sorry. you deserve an answer and here it is.
It is a shame that we cannot enforce our existing laws to prevent situation like that from happing. Young children and their parents should never be allowed to stay here without coming in the proper way. Because we failed to enforce existing law; that girl in the video, like many others, grows up in America, feels she is American, and more or less acts as American. For children in this situation, who are now adults; we should give them the opportunity to stay and be legal Americans.

In this country we don’t make people responsible for their family’s decisions. People should be treated as individuals. As for her family members who knowingly came here illegally and any minors involved; they should be sent to where the came. We should start to enforce our borders and laws to keep this kind of situation from happening. We also should be looking at our existing immigration laws and seeing what can be done to improve them so that our needs as a country can be fulfilled in lawful ways.

I also want to express that I do not support blanket amnesty. I am willing to make exceptions for some in situations where individuals were brought here under someone else’s will and are now adults. There was a time not much more than a year ago when I did reluctantly support amnesty as a bargaining tool for decisive changes in immigration. The Boston Bombing changed that for me. The idea that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev could come here and become a citizen with out getting flagged by any of his contacts made me question what amnesty could do to us. I get that it’s a different kind of situation but if we just make everyone here illegally, free to stay and be a citizen; who in that group of 11-20 million people want to do harm to this nation?

A New Kind of Slavery

July 16, 2009

I have made the argument that the government’s power grabs at Health Insurance, Energy, Auto Manufacturing and Banking, equate to a form of modern slavery akin to that of books like 1984. This view point outrages some. People tell me that I am a horrible person to say that a so called Health Care Reform is like slavery and that it devalues the struggles and sacrifices of black Americans.
Slavery records can be traced back to thousands of years before the existence of the United States of America. Slavery was never limited to one group of people and has been a part of nearly all human history. Slavery in America is deep disgrace of our history but our strides to bring freedom to everyone is falling is a new kind of slavery.
Where Africans were forced into a physical slavery in America their minds remained free. That can be seen in the freedom songs that kept up the morale of blacks in despairing times.
The slavery of our time is more subtle than the slavery of the past. We are looking at an incoming slavery of minds and hearts. There are so many people that cannot think for themselves and are standing by while others rush in a modern form of slavery. I fear more everyday that my voice will be drowned out by mindless moaning of political zombies and the idiocy of the Democrats and Republicans. Or will more wake up, rise and resound with my voice and those of reason?


Obama’s Love/Hate relationship with The Constitution

May 24, 2009

I want to point out that Obama took a Oath to The Constitution of the United States of America, and yet he sees it as flawed document that constraints freedoms. His goal is to change The Constitution anyway he can; whether it’s through the democrat controlled Legislative Branch, or the Judicial Branch that he will soon have the opportunity to change for years to come.

Above: Obama calls The Constitution is a imperfect & flawed document.


Above: More of Obama’s view on The Constitution; as well as, the Judicial Branch.

This last one is long, I hope you are ready for it. That’s what she said.

Above: Obama talks about his vow to “Preserve, Protect & Defend” that same “imperfect document”.

On another note:
If there are illegal activities going on at Guantanamo, then stop the illegal activities. If you think the name has been tarnished and feel like that matters so much, change the name to Cake Town. Why spend millions of dollars on closing a perfectly functional military base when the government is running out of money, and there is no plan on what to do with the current inmates?
