Charlie Daniels on the Mexican Standoff

Mexican Standoff

I don’t know how everybody else feels about it, but to me I think Hispanic people in this country, legally or illegally, made a huge public relations mistake with their recent demonstrations.

I don’t blame anybody in the world for wanting to come to the United States of America, as it is a truly wonderful place. But when the first thing you do when you set foot on American soil is illegal it is flat out wrong and I don’t care how many lala land left heads come out of the woodwork and start trying to give me sensitivity lessons.

I don’t need sensitivity lessons, in fact I don’t have anything against Mexicans, I just have something against criminals and anybody who comes into this country illegally is a criminal and if you don’t believe it try coming into America from a foreign country without a passport and see how far you get.

What disturbs me about the demonstrations is that it’s tantamount to saying, “I am going to come into your country even if it means breaking your laws and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

It’s an “in your face” action and speaking just for me I don’t like it one little bit and if there were a half dozen pairs of gonads in Washington bigger than English peas it wouldn’t be happening.

Where are you, you bunch of lilly livered, pantywaist, forked tongued, sorry excuses for defenders of The Constitution? Have you been drinking the water out of the Potomac again?

And even if you pass a bill on immigration it will probably be so pork laden and watered down that it won’t mean anything anyway. Besides, what good is another law going to do when you won’t enforce the ones on the books now?

And what ever happened to the polls guys? I thought you folks were the quintessential finger wetters. Well you sure ain’t paying any attention to the polls this time because somewhere around eighty percent of Americans want something done about this mess, and mess it is and getting bigger everyday.

This is no longer a problem, it is a dilemma and headed for being a tragedy. Do you honestly think that what happened in France with the Muslims can’t happen here when the businesses who hire these people finally run out of jobs and a few million disillusioned Hispanics take to the streets?

If you, Mr. President, Congressmen and Senators, knuckle under on this and refuse to do something meaningful it means that you care nothing for the kind of country your children and grandchildren will inherit.

But I guess that doesn’t matter as long as you get re-elected.

Shame on you.

Pray for our troops.

What do you think?

God Bless America

A few points from a former Bush supporter;

First on the list, effing tired of being taken for granted. Forget your friends and you deserve your enemies.

Second, if there is any similarity between Vietnam and Iraq, it's that the administration waging the war no longer knows what the fuck it's doing or how to define the effort. Apparently Iraqi democracy is more important than the American version.

Squandering political capital through indifference to your base and to the persuadable opposition disqualifies you from public office.

All of the shortcomings above come together in the pandering to the criminal class we call illegal immigrants.

Makes friends with them.

Have no realistic plan for preventing a further degradation of the problem.

Behave like the French Court in doing it.

As the world slips closer and closer to firestorm ignited by Iran, these idiots can't even find the backbone to protect our own borders.

All I know now is that the future looks very grim. We have no government worthy of the term, we have enemies everywhere and rats gnawing at the fabric of American society. What's even worse than the practical matters is that the shear weight of pride in country and citizenship can be a force magnifier. Even that, now, is in doubt.

The Bush Administration isn't even up to level of Jacque Chirac's. Whatever else you say about Chirac, at least he still makes a big deal about being a Frenchman. For that matter, maybe the same can be said of George Bush.

Rhod after I got up this morning I sat in family room crying my eyes out. I am so fed up, so angry, so hurting for America with all that has been happening. Nick is pissed too like I am.

I want to do a rant about it and I am going to but I am so upset I am afraid I will not express how I feel where it can be understood.

What YOU wrote is so perfect and you said it so well. Thank you Rhod, thank you for being here and for putting into words what has to be said.

WT and Nick:

I know I've taken a position that will piss off some of your followers. I've been unhappy with W for a long time, although not in any of the ways that will please the left.

Bush's immigration "policy" has been an irritant to me for a long time...I posted at DC's about it a long time ago and provoked an argument there. Bush's biggest personal failing as a leader is that he equates loyalty with merit, and familiarity and friendliness with legitimacy.

As for loyalty, think Harriet Miers. As for legitimacy, think of his sentimental attachment to the mixed culture in the American Southwest, and his disgraceful kissing of Vicente Fox's ass and acting like a toady of a sleazy Mexican kleptocrat. This was the low point of his administration.

Nothing relieves the ugliness of macho posturing, no pigheaded, stubborn swagger can EVER forgive that stupid scramble on a Mexican pyramid in suntan clothing, while 3000 desparate escapees of this vile regime crawl across our border.

Then, as if to dig deeper into the slime, he inflates the sagging myth once again that illegals are temps for absent American workers, and the mutual exploitation in this employment process is in American interest. What a disgusting display of subservience and mendacity. This will not end well, and history will sort it out through chaos and bloodshed.

As for Iraq, this persistent bullshit about a war on "Terror" explains neither Iraq nor Iran. What's happening in Iraq is a magnified version of gang warfare and has nothing to do with Islam, unless you consider the Sunni-Shi'a-Sadrist-Baathaist hatred for each other something more than a Hatfield-McCoy feud with reasons no longer rational. This is going to continue until all or most of them are dead or exhausted. Do we hear the administrationt tell us this? No, the blogs are doing the business of the Bush Administration.

As for Iran, it's a terrorist state, but also a sovereign state with the President and Mullocracy threatening the Western World. TERROR? What kind of fucking idiots can hold that truth when the government of Iran is the legitimate and organized enemy of the US and much of the Western World. Terrorists don't have air forces, armies and navies.

We will, in the end, win this contest, because the 12 to 15 percent of Muslims who are Arabs, with the Persian monsters in Iran not much different, have no idea of what they're facing. None. Victor Davis Hanson correctly noted that the Western way of war is more ferocious than the worst Islamic fantasy. Gettysburg, Dresden, Hiroshima, hundreds of other examples should leave no doubt that The Gates of Vienna is a trip to the beach compared to what's waiting in the wings for these assholes. It will be awful, terrible, and maybe even avoidable. That's the great shame of it.

I also lost most of my faith in Bush, and the Republicans in general. Sometimes I get so pessimistic all I can say is I am glad that I have no kids and I am glad I lived in the 50's and 60's, the apex of American culture and success and the reality of the American Dream.

I keep looking for a bright light for the future, another Ronald Reagan who brightened us for a while after the "malaise" and liberal anti-American crapola of Jimmah Carter. The only list I can look at is whatever Conservative is disliked by entrenched Republicans, as Reagan was so dispised by "professional" pseudo Repubs.

'06 is too near for a real Conservative leader to step forward, have to wait for '08. Hope is dimming. Maybe someone has an idea of the person I hope for. If the illegal immigrant problem is not faced head-on in the next few months, all may be lost.

Rhod, I moved your comment to the top as a post. Thank you so much.

Tom I also put a copy of your post there too.

Thank you both sooooo much!!!!!

I'm pissed with the Republican leadership, but I don't have any alternatives. I'm really pissed about Mel Martinez and his support of the illegals. The left will vote for their moonbats because they don't give a piss about the USA. The right has no where to go. There are very few who are truly coming down on our side of this issue. Most have rolled over to expose their belly for a pat by an illegal. I can't stay home in November, but what are my choices going to be? Bad or bad?

If you're a Floridian that Mel is "suppossed" to represent, well here's a site on his immigrationreport card.

razOr thank you so much. I have been a Republican all my life and I will still vote
Republican. I just wish so much there could be a good house cleaning when we vote again and kick out the Rhino's and start all over. Oh man at least I can wish for that.
Thank you so much for the links.

Hi WT, first time poster here from Volusia County! I too am very upset with Bush over illegal immigration and am having mixed feelings about the Republican party as far as most of our representatives go...thank you for these updates *just read raz0r's posting of Mel's immigration report card*...sheesh, this is all so unbelievable. This may not be too recent, but a great example of what looks like may happen to my/our country soon

Anyway, thanks again for supporting our military too!
