What do you think of THIS?

Mike S 3 hours ago  (A Yahoo Comment to THIS ARTICLE):

Dear President Trump:

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, The President of Mexico, 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 that although I don’t pay Mexican taxes, I’ll receive money from the government.
17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays $4,500.00 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 the President of Mexico won’t mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

Check……..Checkmate……..grrrr

I sometimes comment at Yahoo and you’ll see my comment below about the article I linked, which said that

“Shoppers have been taking to Twitter and other social media platforms to call for the boycott following news that co-founder Bernie Marcus plans to back Trump’s re-election bid.”    It got me SO MAD I had to write the comment:

Trump takes to Twitter to support Home Depot: ‘Fight for Bernie Marcus and Home Depot!’

Can we stop threatening total destruction to anybody on the Right? Can the Left STOP IT, wake up and realize this was a FREE COUNTRY to have FREE AND OPEN OPINIONS? The DNC is now forcing us to live out Kristalnacht…the book burning has started…………Disagree! HATE! Argue…FINE, but stop threatening stores, threatening people, attacking with masks on and calling others fascist (that always cracks me up) when you’re the quintessential definition of FASCISTS……Nobody on the Right can TALK anymore without something being dug up about them , products not purchased, horrid lies added to whatever truth is there. The Left is starting to scare me…….all under the guise of “For the people”. Bull S*it.

A Story I couldn’t resist sharing:

Let me just first apologize that you have to read “HER” name a few times in this account in a classroom recently:

Hillary Clinton goes to a gifted-student primary school in New York to talk about the world. After her talk she offers question time.

One little boy puts up his hand. Hillary asks him what his name is. “Kenneth,” he says.

“And what is your question, Kenneth?” she asks.

“I have three questions,” he says.
“First — whatever happened in Benghazi?
“Second — why would you run for president if you are not capable of handling two e-mail accounts?
“And, third — whatever happened to the missing six billion dollars while you were Secretary of State?”

Just then the bell rings for recess. Hillary informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.

When they resume Hillary says, “Okay, where were we? Oh, that’s right, question time.
Who has a question?”

A different boy — little Johnny — puts his hand up.

Hillary points to him and asks him what his name is.
“Johnny,” he says.

“And what is your question, Johnny?” she asks.

“I have five questions,” he says.

“First — whatever happened in Benghazi?
“Second — why would you run for president if you are not capable of handling two e-mail accounts?
“Third — whatever happened to the missing six billion dollars while you were Secretary of State?
“Fourth — why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early?
“And, fifth — where’s Kenneth?”

YOUR DAY

There were SO SO many things Trump said yesterday that I was saddened by that I figured I can’t write what I want here today because everybody freaks out… Too much for me to hear some of his tweets, etc.; it makes me really mad and I’m tired of the whole thing.

SO YOU WRITE TODAY’S POST.    ON YOUR MARK, GET SET………………….WRITE!

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND?

GEORGE ORWELL..HOLY COW

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

― George Orwell, 1984

We all have read many stories like THIS, but this is the very latest.   Statues ARE coming down, we are renaming buildings, this isn’t being repainted, for some reason, it’s being DESTROYED.  As is our history.

“…the Party is always right.”  And we are marching lock-step with little push back, aren’t we.

Faith, Politics, and The Border Crisis – KG

(A Christian minority’s struggle with the border crisis……..with some edits by Z)

I am a Christian and conservative. I try and make sure to put Christ before everything I do, whether its my job or how I vote. Many asks us to keep religion and politics separate but that’s not possible when your faith dictates ideology. At least, that’s how our faith should lead us.

That given, there is no perfect earthly model that matches politics with the tenants of my faith. I just found constitutional Conservatism to be the most fitting and least antagonistic.

I will always seek to exhaust research and find the facts (or proof) before coming to opinions or posts. Am I perfect in that aspect, absolutely not.

As a Christian Conservative growing up in the far-Left reaches of California, I am used to hearing and seeing a lot of hate and twisting of my beliefs. Throw in my ethnicity (Mexican and black – hints of other stuff) and it’s an exponential multiplier. I sort of revel in the challenge though.

That given, there are some things I simply cannot stand hearing repeatedly stated about how I supposedly see things. Whether it is from the Progressive Christian left (notice how ideology proceeds faith there) or secular Left.

As a believer in Christ, I am called to help those in need. It should be an outgrowth of my faith, not a means to salvation. The situation at the border is tragic. Families risking their lives to cross at the hands of nature, human traffickers, and drug smugglers. As the son of a first generation (formerly illegal) mother, I get the urgency. The privilege we all have is being born in the greatest nation on earth.

As an individual, I would choose to legally help those in such situations whether it was with food, money, sponsorships, or otherwise. Some laws, here and abroad, can be broken if where God’s law takes precedent. In most cases, assisting illegal crossers does not fall under this category.

As the Left likes to point out, we are not a “Christian nation.” America was undoubtedly built on Judaeo-Christian principles that helped forge our greatness. These founding ideals helped mold our society and establish those incredible documents we hold dear.

So when the Left decides to tell me to bend toward their will because, “Jesus would do…” or “A real Christian would…” it drives me insane.

Inconsistencies identified in a philosophical/political/ideological movement are very telling concerning whether that system of thought is worthwhile enough to hold its own weight.

Where Leftists may throw a fit over the 10 Commandments displayed near a public building (despite the Jewish Law’s consistency with American Law and values) the Left now wants to force me to publicly push my faith in the political arena to satisfy their political desires.

Is the illegal immigration crisis a public or religions concern? For me the answer is Yes. For the Left, it’s whatever is convenient at the time.

If my faith calls me to help them where they are (on the other-side of the border) I am not doing enough and am a hypocrite to them because “Jesus would help them on this side of the border” (they’d preach despite never even reading the Bible as mere literature). If I help them on this side of the border, that too is hypocrisy because I won’t endorse their welfare state policies.

Policies I know first hand  act as safety-nets that encourage no incentive to improve oneself – (Trust me, as one who grew up on food stamps and welfare in the public housing projects of LA, I enjoyed the privilege of a mother and father and in spite of being a minority, attended Graduate school and now comfortably sit in the middle class as a married home owner with a great career) – I still have many friends suckling on the breast of the welfare system because its “comfortable” enough for them.

So let me be clear: As a Christian, my heart breaks for the poor and the destitute here at home and on border. My heart breaks for those who see fit to break laws and cross borders for a better future; my heart breaks for those who see it best to risk their lives into the hands of coyotes; my heart breaks for those taking their small children into deadly waters just to risk living in fear of future deportation.

This is all heartbreaking. I believe basic human decency can empathize with that (and trust me I struggle with empathy). I, by God’s grace, will never know what it is like to be that desperate.

My heart breaks for those having to sleep on cold hard floors in detention centers without things we find to be necessities (soap and tooth brushes); my heart breaks for the divided families wondering where their children are; my heart breaks for those deported who were simply caught in a bad spot and were otherwise decent men and women who acted more American than plenty of so-called Americans (thankfully these individuals are the minority of cases).

And while my heart does break for these above, I also struggle to empathize with people who willingly bring their children across treacherous paths; I struggle to agree with Leftists who lionize the struggle for their political benefit; I struggle to stand beside Leftist who blame hard working border patrol agents for the death of those who die in their custody or for the conditions that are brought upon an understaffed facility. As far as I am concerned, Leftists are unwilling to properly fund border security (which would likely stem the flow of crossings, provide resources for Border Patrol, and build new adequate facilities with adequate resources). In doing so, they help exacerbate the crisis.

Though I take this position, one of empathy, pity, and Love, I am not called to suddenly abandon righteous laws, morality, principles, or my faith and ideology. Especially concerning a man-made crisis.

As a Christian, we have Liberty in Christ. We, different members of the body, have different interests, callings, and spirit-led compulsions. While my directive tends to be toward things that are within the law, who am I to wag my finger at the group of believers  who decide they are going to hire, house, feed and clothe illegal immigrants until they can sponsor their paperwork? Who am I to wag my finger at a pastor leaving caches of supplies in the desert for “migrants” crossing the border – maybe one day that life saved becomes an honest working American soldier or Conservative thought-leader or Doctor who works against abortion? Who knows, all I know is I am called to helping the less-fortunate. If I do not believe in taking those measures and another believer feels called to it – so be it. Perhaps that is why I work in law enforcement. My calling is a different arena.

Now let me be clear on something, just because I don’t take these measures, things that I would internally process as a stumbling block for others and/or myself, does not mean I am less of a Christian (or them more of a Christian). It also does not mean I am more of an American
(Or them less of an American). These are struggles and differences that are allowable in my faith that perhaps some of you would not understand whilst standing on the outside looking in.

What I do know is this, we are a nation of Laws and a nation with a border. Having a border and having laws is not cruel or evil, it is both righteous and sensible. The God I worship ordained His own laws and even set out borders for His people and His dwelling. While I hate to make a meme of that – how cheesy it may sound to some – it’s true.

Enforcing these laws, likewise is not cruel and evil.

America is one of the most generous nations of peoples on earth (and un-ironically stated, Conservatives are the most generous of the groups). Thousands of non-profits pour out of our nation to help the world. Humanitarians, lawyers, doctors, churches, and government groups do more. Our military keeps ocean lanes free and defends the liberties of dozens of nations. We provide direct foreign aid to dozens more. This Left-wing declares America, and its lawful border, as evil. To me, that is a load of combustible hot air. Asking us to apologize for that is just stupid.

I know I am long-winded, and while I can keep going I’ll end it here.

A commenter recently stated, “Democrats are willing to clean the dirty water but not willing to fix the leaky faucet” when it came to the border crisis they NOW acknowledge. He nailed it.

What good is cleaning the water when the problem is the leak itself? Better yet, why are the Left so willing to sabotage the pipes to create this leak in the first place?

The border crisis is man-made. I alluded to that earlier but I want to re-emphasize that point. Media is also a willing participant. Notice how terms have changed to work the narrative.

* “Illegal immigrant” was dropped for “undocumented.” To deemphasize the lawfulness of the border. This was changed to “Undocumented.”
* “Undocumented” was dropped because it did not highlight the importance of foreign travel so “immigrant” was used.
* “immigrant” though still in use, is used less due to complaint (as conservatives noted it conflates legal with illegal) so it changed to “migrant”
* “Migrant” – now largely used – notably emphasizes movement but with an expectation of legality. A person can be a “migrant” if they move from CA to TX. This is in line with the borderless narrative.
* Lastly “asylum seekers” has made its way to the forefront. While seeking asylum has been a rightful claim for decades, you’ll note that this was not used under Obama at the same level and has taken a dramatic up-tic in recent years.

Has anyone asked why? Surely media personalities, commentators, editorialists, journalists, and authors came about to this on their own? Well if you think that I have some fake gold to sale you.

It is orchestrated. Teams of left-leaning organizations feed this information to media. Media in turn sells it to the public. The crisis is man-made. While Obama-era asylum measures were overturned (i.e. claiming Domestic Violence), the same teams at the border that organized mass caravans have instructed potential border crossers to declare themselves “asylum seekers” thereby clogging an already busy system.

In doing so, we are forced to process thousands of people (on either side) causing mayhem. Mind you, seeking asylum was meant for the rare purpose of “political persecution” for varied reasons. Not for mere economic opportunity, and not for domestic violence.

The hoopla is recycled from the Syrian Refugee crisis, except closer to home. The image is no longer that of a Kurdish boy washed up on the shore of Turkey, but a Mexican father and son floating lifelessly in the banks of the Rio Grande.

All of it tragic. All of it tragic – truly. All of it useful and orchestrated – sadly.

(Bless you if you read this all lol) *End Rant*

Z:  Clearly, this needs more editing but you get the point;  It’s a tough situation when you’re a Christian and see people dying like illegals are…….I struggle with this…..and I think this fellow, KG, had some good points to make so I wanted to share it with you.

At best, he shows we are not alone in our confusion!   At least he fairly clearly lays out the obvious problems in being a Christian, expected to help everyone (?) and how he handles that confusion in his mind and in his heart.

COMMENTS?

Have a VERY BLESSED SUNDAY…I have a hugely busy one in front of me so I hope to get back soon and hope to read some of your responses.

 

Love, Z

Biden and Kamala….hilarious

Just had to mention two things I just saw;

Biden tells CNN that he and “Barack” would never have allowed Russia to interfere in elections.   Um, Mr. Biden, you and BARACK were in the WH in 2016, when the Russians interfered…………..remember?  🙂  Loved that gaffe.

He’s also saying he wasn’t PREPARED to talk about segregation when Kamala hit him with it…..WASN’T PREPARED?  Couldn’t you ALL speak segregation if asked?!!!!  What’s he NEED?

Kamala Harris tells a crowd at whatever ESSENCE is that SHE WILL STOP DISCRIMINATORY HOME LENDING LAWS!    She is calling on the nation to “deal with the racial wealth gap,” and she proposes a $100 billion federal program to help black people buy homes.

We have people living on the streets of all colors but SHE wants ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS to help Black people buy homes.  How humiliated good Black families must feel when they hear this…and do the many successful Blacks with their own homes get reparations now for what they’ve already paid in?

I’d like help with MY mortgage, too, but I don’t have dark enough skin.  Is that going to help racial division heal or she doesn’t care?

THOUGHTS?

BABY TRUMP BALLOON FLIES ON THE FOURTH….

HERE‘s the article I read about the Trump balloon, which endeavors to make it sound like it ruined the whole day for Trump, and here are the comments…I think you’ll like them………

First, here’s what I left at Yahoo:

Z: “MILITARISTIC”? SO funny! Honoring our military for the sacrifices they make every day, for those who died and their surviving families, for playing their anthems, is militaristic? The Left is getting sicker and more hateful by the way.

    Four of the five wars in the 20th century had a Democrat president at the helm when they started. WW1 – Woodrow Wilson; WW2 – FDR; Korean War – Truman; Vietnam War – LBJ; Iraq – George H.W. Bush – Republican.

Hopeful Fourth of July

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY………..

Sadly, today, we are a country many of whose occupants are calling the president names because he wants to do something really spectacular to celebrate the true independence we should be celebrating instead of mourning over what’s going on in America.  This president may be wanting a big splashy day for himself, he is not ego-less, but I believe 90% of it is FOR AMERICA and we just have to believe it’s true that the four heads of our military arms “have other plans” and “can’t attend” and that it’s not MORE hate and insult and …being JERKS.

The Left’s DNC meme is “Trump’s made it all about him” and “Those tanks are threatening to Americans” and “This all about Trump boosting his ego” and other things…none of which is true, but the Democrats strongly believe “if you say it enough times, it becomes the truth.”   On Independence Day.  They are indecent.

LEST I SOUND TOO GLUM, I AM VERY HAPPY ABOUT SOMETHING!  TODAY, I AM CELEBRATING THE RELEASE AND SMALL FINE AND DEMOTION IN RANK OF NAVY SEAL GALLAGHER.   I have been sick about his arrest and the prosecution by our country of a man who’s served 8 terms in hell.    He might have done it.  He might have had a hellish day of seeing a friend killed, of looking behind himself all day to protect himself from being killed.  He might have just had it with war, wondering if he’d ever see his wife again, and finally lashed out at this ISIS kid.   He might have bragged about it. He might be guilty.   I know some of you will say “Those aren’t our Values, Z”  And I say for the 239847th time “Yes, and it’s our values which might be killing us.”   What kind of country prosecutes a warrior for killing a terrorist whose dream is the biggest American collateral damage possible?    Many of you will disagree.  I respect that.   Please respect my opinion.    This is far more than Gallagher, and his arrest didn’t work when it comes to supposedly showing the world our “AMERICAN GOOD VALUES”…not to the  Iranians, or the Arab world or the Chinese or the N Koreans…NO, to those horrid twisted minds (and please remember they do NOT think like us),  this showed us as STUPID, RIDICULOUS and WEAK.  mostly STUPID.

SO, this year, I’m celebrating his release.  If he did it, I don’t like it, trust me, but I’m glad he is FREE.  I’m celebrating HIS INDEPENDENCE THIS FOURTH OF JULY.  (It might interest some of you to know that when I Googled for the info about his being found innocent, I had to go down about 10 articles full of his indictment, lists of what he did, etc., before I got to the updated articles of his release….accidental?  Of course not)

Hopeful Fourth!….let’s all hope Americans once again put this great country first, not their political agendas.  Have a great day. 

 

Z
