May 5th

Tomorrow, the flags will be waving and the bands will be playing, all in celebration of a day in history which does not involve America.  The fifth of May is marked every year by legal and illegal alike and I don't like it.  Wave your Mexican flags somewhere else, please!

The following is from an email that I rec'd recently: 

MOVING TO  MEXICO 
Dear President Obama
I'm planning to move my family and extended family into 
Mexico  for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me. 

We're planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. Into Mexico, and we'll need your help to make a few arrangements. 

We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports,
immigration quotas and laws. 

I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy,
President Calderon, that I'm on my way over? 

Please let him know that I will be expecting the following: 

1. Free medical care for my entire family. 

2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not. 

3. Please print all Mexican government forms in English. 

4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers. 

5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history. 

6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school. 

7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch. 

8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy access to government services. 

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in  Mexico , but, I don't plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won't make any special effort to learn local traffic laws. 

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer. 

11 I plan to fly the U.S. Flag from my house top, put U S. Flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals. 

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start. 

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy. 

14. I want to receive
free food stamps

15. Naturally, I'll expect free rent subsidies. 

16. I'll need
Income tax credits so although I don't pay Mexican Taxes, I'll receive money from the government. 

17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Gov't pays $4,500 to help me buy a new car. 

18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the
Mexican Social Security program so that I'll get a monthly income in retirement. 

I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U.S. From Mexico.  I am sure that President Calderon won't mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely. 

Thank you so much for your kind help. 
You're the man!!!

This makes perfect sense!

Borders, Language, Culture

Found at the Warriors for Truth website:

IMMIGRANTS, NOT AMERICANS, MUST ADAPT.

If you don't agree with this for fear of offending someone....You are part of the problem!

Will we still be the Country of choice and still be America if we continue to make the changes forced on us by the people from other countries that came to live in America because it is the Country of Choice?

We celebrate Christmas....but because it isn't celebrated by everyone.....we can no longer say Merry Christmas. Now it has to be Season's Greetings. It's not Christmas vacation, it's Winter Break. We've gone so far and bent over backwards to not offend anyone, that we are now being offended.

This is an editorial written by an American citizen, published in a Florida Newspaper.
IMMIGRANTS, NOT AMERICANS, MUST ADAPT.
I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Americans. However... the dust from the attacks had
barely settled when the "politically correct!" crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others.

I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to America.
Our population is almost entirely made up of descendants of immigrants. However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand.

This idea of America being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity.
As Americans we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle. This culture has been developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.

We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!

"In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some Christian, right wing, political slogan.. We adopted this motto because Christian men and women....on Christian principles....founded this nation... and this is clearly documented.
It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home...because God is part of our culture.

If Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam, then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. This is OUR COUNTRY, our land, and our lifestyle. Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his opinion and we will allow you every opportunity to do so! But once you are done complaining, whining and griping about our flag... our pledge... our national motto...or our way of life....I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other Great American Freedom......THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.

It is Time for America to Speak up If you agree -- pass this along.
If you don't agree -- delete it - You are in the WRONG Country! AMEN
I suggest you forward this message to all your friends and family.  Let the world know that America will not go quietly into the night!

Try a new site

I have just used a new site that I heard Leo Laporte and Amber MacArthur talk about on their show, Net@Night.  The site is Hunch.com and it is a recommendation engine unlike any other out there.  I searched on Geocaching, a sport I would like to get more involved in, and up popped several questions that helped me refine what I was thinking about.  You don't need an account to use the site, but it helps to keep track of what you previously searched for and to better refine your results.  Hunch.com was created by Caterina Fake of Flickr.com fame.

It's actually quite fun and I highly recommend that you use it.  

All the best!
