Here is an analogy that ANYONE can understand!

Here follows a letter to a newspaper by a guy down in AZ. If you cannot follow his logic here, and TOTALLY agree with it, you are beyond any reasonable help! It is signed below by the author so I didn't "steal" it as my own for all you nitpickers.


If you had tickets to a sports event, concert, Disneyland , or on an airplane, and when you got to your assigned seat, and someone else was in that seat, what would you do? You would call for a person in charge of ticket checking and have the person in your seat removed. You would be properly asked to show your ticket, and you would gladly and proudly do so, for you have bought and paid for that seat. The person in your seat would also be asked for a ticket, and they would not be able to produce one. They would be called “gate crashers” and they would be properly removed.

Now in this huge stadium called the USA we have had millions of gate crashers. We have been asking security to check for tickets and remove the gate crashers. We have been asking security to have better controls in checking at the door. We have asked security to lock the back doors. Security has failed us. They are still looking the other way. They are afraid to ask to see the tickets. Many people say there is unlimited seating, and whether there is or not, no one should be allowed in for free while the rest of us pay full price!

In section AZ, of Stadium USA , we have had enough of the failures of Security. We have decided to do our own ticket checking, and properly remove those who do not have tickets. Now it seems very strange to me that so many people in the other 49 sections, and even many in our own section do not want tickets checked, or even be asked to show their ticket! Even the head of Security is chastising us, while not doing his own job which he has sworn to do.

My own ticket has been bought and paid for so I am going to proudly show it when asked to do so. I have a right to my seat, and I want the gate crashers to be asked to show their tickets too. The only reason that I can imagine anyone objecting to being asked for their ticket is that they are in favor of gate crashing, and all of the illegal activities that go with it. Such as drug smuggling, gang wars, murder, human smuggling for profit, and many more illegal and inhumane acts that we are trying to prevent with our new legislation. Is that what I am hearing from all of the protestors such as Phoenix Mayor Gordon, US Rep. Grijalva, even President Obama? If you are not in favor of showing tickets, (proof of citizenship, passport, green card, or other legal document) when asked, as I would proudly do, then you must be condoning those illegal activities.

Excellent post and excellent points Ev! Too bad the LWLs don't 'understand' that logic...

American said...

what part did you not understand libby?

Aquitaine said...

AWESOME post Everett!! Peter C from BI says to tell you!! Too bad MORE of the RIGHT people just don't wake up and see the same! Seems to me the "Walking Suits" haven't had enough 'in the crowd job hunting' exposure!!!!

Sam said...

Well you have a point, although your "ticket" came by right of birth, not legal or illegal immigration. More and more troops, officers, and agents are being charged with rooting out the aliens.

The really strange part if that businesses love to hire illegals, and the dope-heads love to do their imported drugs. That's not an argument to stop enforcing the borders, but that our nation is hopelessly addicted to cheap labor and expensive drugs.

By all accounts, we're losing both wars, in spite of spending billions in taxpayer money. It is fashionable to talk smack, be all tough about immigration, and be like "Sheriff Joe," but face it we have failed, and we cannot win.

I have no idea what to do about it. I guess they can round up all 330 legal Americans to root out the 10 or 12 million illegals. Sounds like a major pain in the butt to me ... anyone got a better solution besides that?

Everett said...

Sam, Yeah I've got an idea. Bring back all the guys from Afganiraq and deploy them where it will actually do some good! Along the southern border for a start! ANYBODY that steps across that line has a nice hot lead lunch. If they are in need of asylum, go to a legal border crossing and apply like thousands, nay millions have done before.
"It would cost way too much to deport 18M illegals" is the mantra posed by the open border jerks. Just how much will the American taxpayer pay out of their pockets during the lifetime of the Illegal IM to feed, cloth and give free medical care to he and his offspring in perpetuity? Arizona has already incurred a 330million debt doing just that in the last couple of years! Add in what Kalifornia has paid out and Hell thats enough to give most all of those "Illeagles" a free ticket to anywhere in the world with a couple hundred K's as spending money!
I'll agree that up till now that we have failed to secure our borders, but disagree most vehemently that we "cannot win"! It just takes more and more people to open their eyes to the road to perdition that we are on, get off their liberal asses and vote EVERYONE in office now, OUT!! Repubs as well as Demos!
BTW are you still on Blogger? I checked the other day and you hadn't posted anything for a while. WASSUP?

Everett said...

Hey just went and looked and lo, there you were!
Errrr, What good things coming out of Congress? The first amendment attacks, the second amendment attacks?Sotomayer?,Kagan? what's good?

Sam said...

OK you win, Ev, I don't see much good coming out of Congress except some corrupt old wind-bags are retiring. Yay, about time. Fire 'em all.

Hey what's your feeling about the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878? That law says the Federal government cannot use military force against people who are in the US. That's why the National Guard usually does support functions and recon instead of being on the front line.

Repeal it?


Everett said...

Hi Sam, I do believe that the Posse Commitatus rule about not using the military "in country" was in reference to legitement American citizens. All these Illegal Imm's are not by any definition of the word, American Citizens! And so I would assume they are NOT protected by that law! Damned if I know for sure, but it is way past time to just just sit back and let all comers cross the border unchallenged. Just how long do you think it will be before a suitcase dirty nuke crosse with those thousands of dope mules! I truly suspect it has already been done and some day soon we are going to reap the results of our laxity in enforcing the entrance rules.
Did you ever read the rules that Mexico employs as regards immigrants TOO THEIR COUNTRY? Draconian to say the least!
Hows that garden coming? I've been spending a good part of my time working in mine. If I can keep my mind on something for more than a a few seconds I'll see if I can get a few pictures and post them! See Ya dude and don't get those feet too sandy running around on the beach all day!

Everett said...

Here is a wikipedia definition of the Posse Comitatus act. The very last paragraph tells How and under what conditions it can be temporarily suspended! Notice the word "generally" ! Enjoy.

The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385) passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement. The Act prohibits most members of the federal uniformed services (today the Army, Navy, Air Force, and State National Guard forces when such are called into federal service) from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order" on non-federal property (states and their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States.
The statute generally prohibits federal military personnel and units of the National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress. The Coast Guard is exempt from the Act.

Sam said...

I agree with some of that, although I think the "border violence" thing is was over-hyped. it's not like thousands of Mexicans and OTMs are running through my backyard with machine guns!

And by the way. many of these folks came over with a legal visa and over-stayed their time, I'd say over 60 percent of them although I have no clue, really.

Talk about backyards, this year I planted a small raised bed garden in the front yard. The cucumber and eggplant and Roma tomatoes have been great. I highly recommend the "Roma" or plum style as it handles extremes pretty well, avoids blossom end rot, and is larger than a cherry tomato which is worthless on a sandwich.

Oh and the Roma hybrids don't even need to be staked up, which I like. Let them go wild, even those "sucker stems." The weight of the fruit doesn't sag down to the ground. Might give 'em a whirl. Regards,

Everett said...

I've got ten Roma plants doing well right now. I use them mostly for making sauce in the fall. Spent most of the last 6-8 days getting the last of the seeds in the ground. Three kinds of corn, two different cukes, one climber one sprawler, Parsnips, peas four different beans bush and pole, rutabagas, lima beans, 16, 25' rows od3 different spuds, about 14, 25' rows of onions, 3types, hubbard squash, butternut squash, zucchini, summer crookneck, it just goes onn and on but I've got 15-20 family members help with the weeding and the eating!!!
I have a friend who owned a house here on the Island for 35 years who now lives 10 miles from the border in Serria Verde and they DO travel through his backyard and all his neighbors too, He is seriously thinking about moving but no one will buy his house and he is 85 years old a WWII vet who had three ships sunk out from under him!!! BTW, who the hell would want to go to SPI anyway??? Isn't it covered with oil yet? Seriously on this, I hope to hell you DO NOT get any of that crap down there.

Hang in there dude!

Everett said...

Uh, Sierra Verde is in AZ BTW!!

Sam said...

Oh, you're friend vet is in Arizona, that explains a lot because that's the main problem area right now, simply because it's so big. I can see why Arizona passed their recent law, for all the attention it has caused. Ain't it a shame? Some ranchers over there have to wear a dang pistol and carry a rifle in their pickup, it's that threatening.

Now Ev you mentioned parsnips and roasted 'snips are one of my favorites! I hope they work for ya. Not many people know about 'em, but they are far superior to most root crops in my opinion, and much better than carrots.

I'll be interested to know what kind of taters you're growing because BI is famous for its root crops. Turnips and rutabagas are so-so, love them too, but a good tater ain't nothing like you get in the store!

Oh, remember to set some onions if a row gets picked out. You'll thank yourself many times for that.

Everett said...

I Put in a few rows of the Norland Reds for early eating and then a bunch of Youkon golds 'cause all the kids like 'em but for me the rows of katadin and Kennebecs are the best! Dry, mealy and damned good keepers all through the winter. I'll try that with the Onion sets if I can still find any up around here. Best too you!
