It’s Just Not the Same

Many people like like to point out the migration that took place on Ellis Island and try to equivocate it the avalanche of those coming across the Mexican border. Even as they speak, they know it’s not nearly the same, that is unless they have less of a brain than a nail on the wall.

For those unable to figure out the difference, let me explain it.

First, no one who was sick was permitted into the country. Indeed the hospital where they were kept still stands and, though I might be wrong, it can still be toured. It was where the diseased were kept until well. Those who were not curable went back to where they came from. Had AIDS been a disease back then, no one would have been permitted in with it. However, today it is a political disease and people with AIDS are permitted in regularly, which likely resulted in the loss of many lives. Because there is no desire to do any tracing, there is no way to tell how many. There is no way to make a reasonable guess.

Secondly, it was highly organized. All who tried to enter were interviewed and if they were considered undesirable. they were returned to their country. Certainly, those who had a desire to overthrow the country were not permitted in. Those who had no money or a desired trade were turned away. It was not intended that we should be the welfare state of the world. Finally, those who were criminals were returned to their own country. To be sure, we were not perfect in this regard. Apparently, many criminals did make it through. However, they also turned many away. On the Mexican border, none are turned away.

Third, there were limits, quotas for each country. The obvious attempt was to keep any one nation from overwhelming our civilization. Even though most did separate themselves somewhat into groups, they eventually did assimilate. Until recently, we spoke one language in the schools businesses and our government. Now, when school meetings are held, it is not uncommon for them to be held in three languages. Worse, children are in our schools who don’t know the how to speak English, let alone read and write. They are not the only ones affected. All the learning is hampered.

And, by the way, it makes it more expensive too. Many who of those slowing the learning should not be in the classroom. They are there illegally. If ten illegal children are in a class, that means two-thirds are paying to educate three-thirds. That is not right.

Fourth, many who come over the border are criminals. It causes the crime rates to go up and it increases the cost of enforcing the law. Many communities that were reasonably peaceful now have a meaningful population of criminals who are not Americans.

Fifth, back in the day, cartels did not control our borders. Nowadays, they do control the Mexican borders. The US would be completely right to send in troops and wipe out the cartels. The US is under their attack. However, no one, but not one will do that, though they fire across the river nightly.

If things were now as they were then, I would not mind the immigration. Somehow, I don’t think there are many who will pay me any attention. They are afraid of someone saying something in the social media, which would force them out into the Outer Limits.

So instead, they watch as our nation falls into oblivion.



Three Reasons the IRS Will Never Go Away

  1. Power. The tax laws have ways of controlling the way we live. When they provided tax shelters for all kinds of interest, people went into debt, even with credit cards. Then we deducted the interest from our taxes. Now, of course, interest is not so deductible. Now it is limited to our homes and then that is limited. If the dems have their way, the rich will again be able to deduct the interest for their mansions and perhaps for their yachts. I mean a person can live on a yacht, even if it is a 2 or 3 million dollar land yacht.
  2. Power. While specific info on one person is not yet available to congress, general info is. The government can tell where we make our money, where we spend our money and even a little about our health, thanks to Obama Care. This info is power and the dems just love power.
  3. Power. (I know. It is getting a little repetitious.) Congress collects money and they spend it. The more they collect and spend, the more power they have. And congress, no matter which side of the isle, loves the power they get from spending money.

Now with all that, you would think I am in favor of doing away with the IRS. Not so. That is to say, unless they pass an amendment disallowing it. If we did away with the IRS and replace it with a sales tax, it would not be long that we would have both. Then the government would be hitting us from both directions: earning and spending.

Wait a minute. I guess they already do. The feds do collect 1% sales tax; they collect gas tax as well as a few other things. Besides, the state and local government gets the sales tax. And by the way, most states get us from both directions, sales and income. It sort of makes me wonder how we manage to hold onto any of our earning for ourselves.

And so it it is, we give them the money and they take our freedoms. Then they spend our money one things that don’t work, such as modern education like CRT. At the same time, they refuse to spend it where it does work, like on border walls and law enforcement.

I do find it odd that the FOBs just love things that don’t work, like windmills and solar cells. Then they refuse to let us develop energy sources like natural gas, oil and atomic energy. Do you suppose that they like the idea of making our nation a third world country.

Well, at least it would solve the border thing. If they are successful, all the illegal aliens will start leaving, and maybe a few of our citizens. Let us hope that includes all the FOCs

Same, Same

The question was posed to Psaki about people being flown all over the country in the middle of the night. Psaki replied “I would not say it was the middle of the night. When confronted with the actual times, roughly 2 and 4 in the morning, Psaki smiled and said it was early morning.

I don’t know about you folks out there in the real world, but I’d say it is the same, same. As the song goes some people use the long a to pronounce potato, some the short a. It is still the same vegetable. I assure you it has the same taste and it provides the same nutrition.

Psaki was simply attempting to sidestep the actual question, which by the way, she never really answered.

By the by, one more thing. I thought these were the people that would only be here a short time. Me thinks that was a blatant lie. It was so blatant that she could not speak it with a straight face.

I can’t say I totally blame her. Look who she has a boss. Those arrow slung at her must be causing her some pain.
