May Day

Tomorrow is May Day. Expect a lot of riots demonstrations in favor of illegal immigration. I will be fixing some popcorn and watching the televison propaganda reports.

Isn’t it strange that Democrats are attacking Arizona as Nazis and racists for requiring aliens to have identification in their possession and then introducing legislation in Washington, D.C. for a Mandatory National ID Card for Americans?

Insane.

Belgium

This country is in a deep funk as to whether it has a future or not. It has not had a functional government for several years. A series of “caretaker” regimes has been in place but without any clear mandate as to the future.

Some say the Belgium model is a complete failure.

The Flemish in the northern half speak Dutch and are more prosperous than the French speaking Walloons in the southern half. The Flemish are more oriented to capitalism and free enterprise. The Walloons are more oriented to…er…welfare statism like their cousins in France.

The Flemish want to join the Netherlands. The Walloons want Belgium to remain the same, and to continue their parasitic lifestyle courtesy of the Flemish. Most are predicting that the Flemish will be annexed into the Netherlands and the Walloons into France. No one knows what will happen to the capital, Brussels, which is also the seat of the European Union.

Raising Arizona

Phoenix, Arizona has become the kidnapping capital of America, with more incidents than any other city in the world outside of Mexico City and over 370 cases last year alone.

Three Border Patrol agents are assaulted on the average day at or near the US border. Someone is kidnapped every 35 hours in Phoenix, Ariz., often by agents of alien smuggling organizations. And one-in-five American teenagers last year used some type of illegal drug, many of which were imported across the unsecured US-Mexico border. These facts are reported in the recently released National Drug Threat Assessment for 2010, published by the National Drug Intelligence Center, a division of the US Justice Department.

Greece

Quote from here.

“It has been clear for some time that the Greeks cheated and lied their way into the Eurozone, and for years they have pursued selfish and foolish economic policies. Why, Germans ask with some force and logic, should German taxpayers who cannot retire until their late sixties pay the bill so that Greeks can retire at 55?”

Mexico regulations

As of March 1, 2010, all U.S. citizens – including children — must present a valid passport, book or card, for travel beyond the “border zone” into the interior of Mexico. Entry by any means, for example by plane or car, is included in this requirement. The “border zone” is generally defined as an area between 20 to 30 kilometers of the border with the U.S., depending on the location. Stays of less than 12 hours within the border zone do not require a visa or tourist card.

U.S. citizens traveling as tourists beyond the border zone or entering Mexico by air must pay a fee to obtain a tourist card, also known as an FM-T, available from Mexican border crossing points, Mexican tourism offices, airports within the border zone and most airlines serving Mexico.

Upon arrival in Mexico, business travelers must complete and submit a form (Form FM-N 30 days) authorizing the conduct of business, but not employment, for a 30-day period. Travelers entering Mexico for purposes other than tourism or business or for stays of longer than 180 days require a visa and must carry a valid U.S. passport. U.S. citizens planning to work or live in Mexico should apply for the appropriate Mexican visa at the Embassy of Mexico.

Medicare

I recently turned 65 and am now covered by Medicare. I pay $110 per month for medicare coverage and another $33 per month for prescription drug insurance. Drugs cost me $11 per prescription. Not bad of a deal. Thanks to you working stiffs out there. Maybe I’ll convert to socialism after all. Work a little harder guys…..

Let in about 20 million more illegals so they can contribute their FICA taxes because I want a raise in my Social Security check. Dig deeper. Bless you.

My trip to Alaska

Back in 1988 I drove from Texas to Anchorage, Alaska. I had a fairly new Buick LeSabre. It was 4324 miles to my sister’s house. I made it in 4-1/2 days. Two nights sleeping in the back seat and two nights in a motel. Five or six hours sleep each day. I would drive from about 6AM to around midnight.

In northeastern British Columbia the road goes for miles and miles in a straight line through forest. My speedometer was circular shaped and only went to 85, but on the straightaways I had it way past 85, somewhere like 105 in my judgment. Hardly any traffic at all. One time a set of headlights came into view behind me. Thinking it was a cop I slowed down and was passed by a semi with an empty flat bed trailer. He passed me like I was standing still. I speeded up and tried to keep up with him. My speedometer looked like it could have been around 120 mph. I still couldn’t keep up with him.

Alaska is the largest state. Here in Texas we say we are the largest “unfrozen” state.

Anchorage was pretty nice and modern. I loved it there. The weather is better than Buffalo or Minneapolis. Go twenty miles away from Anchorage and you’re in the wilderness. You’re on your own then.

We even had the Border Patrol there. Up there the “illegals” were Canadians, Koreans, Phillipinos, and a few Japanese. They even had a few good Mexican restaurants.

Horse pollution

A horse will on average produce between 15 and 35 pounds of manure per day. Consequently, the streets of nineteenth-century cities were covered by horse manure. This in turn attracted huge numbers of flies, and the dried and ground-up manure was blown everywhere. In New York in 1900, the population of 100,000 horses produced 2.5 million pounds of horse manure per day, which all had to be swept up and disposed of.

Guns and Knives

From a story in the Houston Chronicle….

“A man wielding a knife broke into a primary school in southern China and stabbed 15 students and a teacher Wednesday, the same day another school attacker was executed for killing eight children last month, police and state media reported.”

Two thoughts….

1. When guns are banned, crazy people will use other means such as knives. Should we ban knives?

2. A previous attacker was executed for killing 8 children last month. Note how they don’t drag out cases for years like we do.
