This blog consists mostly of common sense responses to happenings (news articles, political events, etc) that just cry out for someone to say "WHOA! Hang on a second, here!" Too many people get away with just inventing their own facts as they bull-rush their way through an argument.

Unless you're dodging a taxicab or sidestepping a falling gargoyle, it's usually wise to take what time is available to evaluate and apply actual common sense. Good, old wisdom. It is, of course, my opinion, but I'll try to show why I think it's factual.
Thomas Paine said, "To argue with someone who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." ... but I argue with drunks, egomaniacs, anti-gun Statists, Socialist/Keynesians and climate-fraud peddlers, too.

Sorry, no room for 6 billion unannounced guests.

“Burden on budget” (Stephen Wall, 2-21) reports on a Grand Jury investigation of a millstone hanging around the neck of the American economy and especially San Bernardino County. Preliminary observations indicate the obvious; that having tens of millions of unknown, underemployed, untaxed foreigners illegally siphoning resources from the system is ‘bad’.

The article goes on to say that many state and county agencies simply do not track the citizenship of their ‘clients’, so they have no idea how much is really being given to illegal foreign nationals that should be cared for in their own country. As a result, managers guess when questioned. They are employed to hand out services and their positions and advancement depend on high volumes of business. So, it is in their interest to provide maximum handouts and to underestimate the percentage of illegals receiving it.

Not all aliens are illegal, and not all illegal aliens are Mexican. A large number are Chinese, Russian, Central or South American, Canadian, European, etc. Whatever the source, having them living outside the law and absorbing far more in services than they pay in sales tax is damaging, and having no knowledge or control over who enters the country in today’s world is suicidal.

Official records show that our government provides up to $30,000.00 per illegal alien family, per year. This is specified assistance, and does not account for costs of law enforcement, emergency room and free clinic treatment, crime losses, jobs denied to citizens, etc. Decency demands that taxpayers provide illegals 3 things: emergency medical treatment (if needed), a box lunch and a safe bus ride. Several countries have official programs to deal with their poor and uneducated by encouraging them to leave; go north. Mexico adds indoctrination about sending home U.S. dollars and reclaiming “stolen” land, despite treaties and purchases from Spain and Mexico (who subjugated the original settlers, the Indians).

Arguments on the economy often focus on the “burden” of government retirees. While we would be better off with fewer government service-distributing employees, it is unconscionable to lay blame on those soldiers, cops, firefighters and others that put in their 20 or 30 years of service obeying rules that they did not make. Elected “representatives” (mostly progressive Democrats) rarely mention the greater onus of so many that have no right to be here at all. Because intentional misinterpretation of I.N.A. section 301 creates “instant citizens”, they hope to gain votes from handing out the taxpayers’ money.

The Grand Jury is doing important work. We need a steady, controlled flow of honest, talented immigrants to keep the American Revolution strong and fresh. We do not need cynical abuse of foreign “slave labor” to support a few politicians and modern-day plantation owners at the taxpayers’ expense.
