THE IMMIGRATION PROBLEM –
This entire “Illegal/Legal Immigration” situation is
really starting to irritate me worse than the biggest pimple I ever had on
the end of my beak. All sides, and I say all sides because this is not a
one or two, or even three sided issue, are clamoring like a nest full of
hungry fledglings and no one is listening, including the parents. All but
the parents are saying “Me first, til I am full and to heck with you.:”,
while the parents are arguing about whose gathering food ploy is the best
(Republicans and Democrats”. Meanwhile the nest is about to get destroyed
by the “kids”.
America and Americans had better listen up and begin to remember as well.
It was not that long ago that Fidel Castro came to this country, got his
college education along with a heaping helping of communist doctrines,
went back and, Voila! America had a communist country and dictator 90
miles offshore, where both remain to this day causing no end to problems
while screaming how terrible America is.
These problems continue to the present and now include inviting Communist
China to drill for oil IN THE GULF OF Mexico while the extreme
environmentalists won’t even let us drill off the shore of Florida!
What am I saying! I am beginning to think that “extreme” and
“environmentalists” are two inseparable words. And, if you think those two
items are bad, which they are, think about having a Mexico that is clearly
on the road to being anti-America being supplied with items of war, in
exchange for more oil rights and oil itself!
Before we continue on, let me make it clear that I do believe that it is
necessary for “environmentalism” to be a watchdog so that corporations and
government, and yes, in certain cases – individuals, do not go overboard
in their various exercises.
However, WE have to wake up and face reality. It has now been said that
the world’s population is 6 Billion, and estimated that in the year 2012
it will be 7 Billion! America is at the 300,000,000 million mark: The
world is running out of space/resources in the customary areas and all
these present and future human beings are going to need food and a place
to live. So, if you want the predicted war and famine, etc., to come upon
the world, simply allow the world’s governments to continue to stand
around with their thumbs up each nostril arguing about which one to pull
out first while they succumb to shortness of breath!
Something has to give here folks, it simply has to. Common sense simply
has to begin to take precedence over some of the so-called traditional
pride of race and nationalism. If it doesn’t there is going to be a whole
lot less land to argue about and a whole lot less folks to do the arguing,
America, itself, needs to begin standup and say: Enough! You can surely
bet that President Theodore Roosevelt is spinning in his grave over the
way that most of the entire world is spitting all over it like spoiled
rotten children whose do not give a thought to anyone but themselves and
more and more candy from a bag that is rapidly running empty.
America has become so concerned about its so-called image in the eyes of
the world that we are as ineffectual as the parents who let their kids do
drugs, drink booze, etc., because they don’t want them to “think badly” of
Wake Up! Most of the rest of the world hates America and Americans right
now as we speak (and that is one of the reasons). They grab our generosity
with one hand while cutting our hamstrings with the other. Simply put: If
America is going to be hated and all, then we may as well be hated for
acting responsibly and providing positive accomplishment. Instead, we do
not stand up and provide discipline and structure, as well as doing what
is best for the whole world.
After all, the best parents spank their kids and make them go to their
rooms, ground them and the like even though the kids scream how they hate
them. Those same kids as they grow up most always end up being very glad
for this positive influence and thank them for it; and in the end most
become responsible themselves.
Now, do I personally view America as the only country that deserves to be
in this parental description? By no means. However, we are the only one in
the world at this time that, with the aid of certain allies, have the
capability to say something and enforce it with regards to world conduct.
The fact is, Earth has come to the point where someone simply has to step
up and do it and we should.
Forget the United Nations, that establishment is simply a place where the
governments of the world can send their most ineffectual politicians and
give them something to occupy their addled minds.
And before those of you Americans, as well as non-Americans, who want to
tear America down, you best think on this one very solid fact: you can say
whatever you want about America and its government with all of its
admitted faults – this also very solid fact stands clear: it beats those
guys in 2nd place by a huge distance. And if you don’t think so, take a
look at China and Tiananmen Square and you college students with the big
mouths on US campuses think about where you would be if China had the
current role that the United States holds now. Think about how life would
be for Americans if Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia…any of the
Islamic/Muslim countries held the role that America holds now. Think and
We need, all the countries’ peoples, to begin to place common sense at the
forefront in importance and truly come together in compromise. We need to
understand that the world has progressed to the point where total
one-sided disagreement is no longer able to be isolated and controlled by
the clamor of arms up to and including various degrees of war.
We are at the point where war, anywhere in the world, is going to heavily
and disastrously affect/effect every person on the globe. It is simply
time for us to get together in true compromise, bite the selfish bullet
and begin to agree on things that are best for the world, and not just for
our individual countries and selves. It is time for us to abide by the
words all parents tell our children in all the world’s languages: You
don’t always get everything you want!
Can it be done? Can the United States immigration problem/s be solved?
Yes, of course it surely can. But not if any and all sides continue to
insist that compromise means My Way Not Yours.
Now, I am clearly and state openly, not qualified to arrive at such
solutions. However, even I can see some opening parameters, just off the
top of my head. I am going to throw a few in here. Just remember, these
are but opening suggestions and very flimsy at best, but I do it so show
that if this uneducated weak mind of mine can begin to think positively
toward this problem, the various illustrious representatives of ALL sides
can as well.
The following is right off the top of my head and should not be taken to
be anything but a way of showing that there are ways that all sides can be
served. It certainly is not complete, but again, to be seen that solutions
can be found if we stop yelling at one another.
1. Give legal status to those illegal aliens,
that are already here, green card status who apply for them during a
certain time frame – those that do not at the least “apply” are then
subject to permanent deportation. If they sign at the time of initial
application, a witnessed document certifying that they will: Notify
authorities upon learning of ANY persons crossing the border, including
any family members or relatives. If it is found and proven that they
knew and did not, their Green Card status is revoked and they also are
2. The Green Card should allow the holder to “modified” public
welfare/program benefits which are increased or decreased as their
3. If they do not, and it is found and proven they had knowledge of the
illegal crossing they and their, at the time, legal immediate families
will have their Green Cards revoked and they will be deported and not
allowed to reapply for a specified time period, if at all. Any
properties owned at the time of deportation will be confiscated
bought/sold at fair market value by the government with the proceeds
being split half to deportees AFTER or UPON their deportation, and half
to the government.
This is but an extremely small beginning, however
even a beach front begins with a single grain of sand. There has to be
limitations. There was a case where some illegal aliens trespassed on a
Arizona border ranch, and the upshot was that the rancher was penalized
and the ranch given to the ILLEGAL aliens. This is so absurd it should
make everyone choke in outrage. It is the same as if a citizen beat the
heck out of a guy who was burglarizing their house and the judge awarded
the criminal the house and all of the person’s goods! The operative word
here is illegal, and if you do not know this, ILLEGAL means CRIMINAL!!!
