Retired Navy, old enough to know better but too young to care! husband, father, grandfather, politically just to right of Atilla the hun!
@BobE @Always a Marine @Charlie n Hey, Boobie, by the word, 'everyone', I assume you mean the Ivy-league school ratings agencies set up by, strangely enough, the Ivy-league schools ALUMNA I wonder if they have ever dislocated their shoulders patting themselves on the back? I'm sure their respective syllabi are adequate, but "the finest on the planet"? C'mon, niw!
8 months ago on Governor Quinn Shoots Down Illinois Gun Laws
@BobE Which explains much! NYU profs know all, just ask them!
@BobE @Charlie n Boobee, those who THINK they are educationally superior to the rest of us ARE the problem! This also goes for those who think they are MORALLY superior, as well!
Like you, these think they. and ONLY they, know the solutions to ALL problems! All you effete snobs should try to actually THINK through, rather than just acting on FEELINGS, on the problems, and how the rest of us think!
You are like smug teenagers, you think you know all the answers, and do not use common sense and life-experience to form conclusions!
Like inept carpenters, who find no matter how much they cut off the plank, it's STILL too short, Illinois pols find no matter HOW restrictive the gun-control laws they pass, their people STILL can't defend themselves!
@albertogm @mogul264 @ltsvette77 Actually, I DID mention the Latinos who became automatic citizens when the territories where they lived became states in the U.S. Many of these and some naturalized older ones absolutely do NOT want more illegals be given free support after illegally coming here! One is my family relative! I said I had no problem with these!
The ones who are here legally, whether green card or some other program, and who either tacitly, or with ACTIVE support, allow other ILLEGALS to enter for our welfare and for wages ARE the PROBLEM! These agitate for MORE benefits and support, unsatisfied with the freebies already available, and all clamor for citizenship despite breaking many immigration laws!
Other non-Latino U.S. citizens, the feel-good idiots, the apologists, and the soft-hearted (AND soft-HEADED), are a part of the problem, as well. These feel such compassion for these 'poor', 'needy' unfortunates, and want to just give them the MOON.
Working in conjunction with these is the Mexican government! This corrupt administration actually advises their citizens on how best to ILLEGALLY enter the U.S.,.... routes, equipment needed for the journey, etc!! Then again, a large percentage of the Mexican gross national product (GNP) is from the remittances sent back from illegals!
There HAVE been several such citizenship acts granted as amnesty for these transgressors! Unfortunately, each and EVERY TIME this is done, they only have the effect of drawing ever more illegals, each awaiting THEIR 'turn' for amnesty! And, each and every time we are given profuse 'guarantees' of 'tightening the borders' by the government, but this is NEVER done! AND, strangely, the government is again 'guaranteeing' border controls, and this new 'amnesty' will NOT cause additional welfare costs! Should you actually believe this latest 'guarantee', I also own a bridge in Brooklyn which I'd like to sell you!
We can NOT, and SHOULD NOT feel that we MUST support all the unfortunates of the world! Their OWN governments should work to take care of this, themselves!
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Marco Rubio: Securing The Border Is Now Secondary To Citizenship
@ltsvette77 I'm ambivalent about So.Cal! I'd LOVE getting rid of those Hollywoodheads, but, I'd hate to dump all those liberals on the Mexicans! I really don't dislike them, just the illegals they send here to live like fleas on the U.S. hide, and N.M. is pretty much a given, except they may get static from the Indian pueblos! I think Az will put up a stiffer fight, however!
@ltsvette77 If you've been in the So.Cal, Az, N.M. areas lately, you'd realize the Latinos are ALREADY there! Latinos were there when these states joined the new U.S., and became citizens then, and I have no problem with them! However, they have relatives whom they either choose not to protest, worse, ACTIVELY AID, when those and others illegally invade this country! And there are those who've been casually border-jumping for years, sending back funds to relatives, occasionally returning for visits. These, and the newer So. Americans persist in foiling our border security efforts to exclude them. Even more could possibly be terrorists,..../or just 'mules'......smuggling in contraband, cheap counterfeit knockoffs, pot, drugs, ............or WMD components! And some wonder why we 'doth protest too much'?
@markinla @mogul264 @v steve I LOVE! And, the ships serve as 'storage' for the duration! NO TV, NO weight machines, etc, just cells, and BOREDOM! Anchored 12 miles from shore, so no escape! When word gets around, bet there won't be as many as before!
@captainjimgreen Each and EVERY time we have had an amnesty, the actual result is an INCREASE in the number of illegals invading us! They wait their 'turn' at amnesty, and when they get it, ever MORE flock in for THEIR 'turn'! Oh, and there always was a promise to "tighten the borders"! So much for political "promises"! Just like the 'promise' to cut taxes!
@v steve It's been tried! Sometimes, the illegal is BACK in the city where he was BEFORE the agents who took him to the border! We would do better to fly them ACROSS Mexico to the far side and dump them out by parachute! Maybe the agents would have a chance to get home before the illegal! Perhaps, if the punishment was to be DEATH if caught in the US the third time??
@William Tomlinson Never have I come across a more violent, callous, MISNAMED, and uncaring "Religion" of 'Peace'. I use quote marks on the word, "Religion", because it is anything BUT a religion, so much as a government with harsh, intolerant religious overtones based upon a sick individual's mind-meanderings in la-la land! Cloaking these contradictory concepts with outright lies, deceit, deception, and subterfuge to mask them from others until his adherents have enough power to FORCE these concepts upon others is heinous! Indeed, this is NO "Religion", and certainly not "Peace"ful wheh they have the control, and show true colors!
9 months, 1 week ago on Comedian Russell Brand Tries To Justify London Soldier Slaying
@SharonTaylor @mogul264 Please be more specific! I'm sure I insult a great many fools! Not being inclined to be 'politically correct' may lead to such! Just to let you know, my politics is fairly right-wing, somewhat to the right of Attila the Hun, whom I consider a pinko lib!
@Combat Veteran Seabee @mogul264 Seabees were mostly construction types when I was in. Just assumed you were one of these. All this SpecOps stuff was done in 'Nam, closest I got was Guam, AvElexTech, dodging bomb trucks enroute from NavSta harbor to Anderson airbase for the 'Buffs'!
@Combat Veteran Seabee @mogul264 Spent many a night camping, and did survival trips, too! One survival week trek, all others lost weight........I GAINED! But, as I'm now 73, camping isn't so enjoyable (arthritis!), especially if sleeping on the ground!
@Combat Veteran Seabee A question of you, if you would. What part of my e-mail led you to believe I was a "pompous ass"? And I am NO fan of Zerobama, correct or otherwise! Some might also infer that Combat Batallion members are no Einsteins, either,, but that would be an error! From one swabbie to another!
By the way, I concur whole-heartedly in your evaluation of our educational system! Today, they are NOT encouraged to think, just to blindly accept what they're told, and how to access internet information from Wikipedia! You know how reliable THAT is!
@Combat Veteran Seabee @mogul264 Perhaps you should re-read my input! I said, ".......MAY or may not be intelligent, but certainly do not have the exposure to life and experience......so cannot properly make a judgement!" I NEVER mentioned 'education'! I should have specified a "young" 'hillbilly' housewife! Many marry in their teens!
Here, I was referring to experience with other cultures and mores, something not common in the poorer sections of the Appalachains, generally where 'hillbillies' are assumed to be from. AND, I have kinfolk there, so I am using the outsider term, 'hillbilly', to identify what the Appalachain inhabitants call 'hill folk'! Many never travel more than about 30 miles in their entire life!
Once again, people are equating comedic talent for knowledge and deep-thinking! Just consider the source.......he is an ENTERTAINER, A COMEDIAN, he is not Voltaire, Jefferson, or any of a NUMBER of deep-thinkers, researching large quantities of data on complex subjects! This is like asking deeply religious questions of an underwear model! Or, questions about humanity of a back-woods hill-billy housewife! They may or may not be intelligent, but certainly do not have the exposure to life and experience (no pun intended about the underwear model !), so cannot properly make a judgement!
@davidclu @mogul264 Personally, I'd like SOME sort of test, other than the ability to just READ, for voters! Something which showed they had SOME inkling of what the functions of government actually are! I'd ALSO like to stipulate that ONLY military VETERANS be allowed to DECLARE WAR, as only THEY have been in a position (at least potentially) of being involved IN war! It is relatively easy to tell OTHERS to go risk their lives in warfare, ANOTHER ENTIRELY to be involved, themselves!
You can forget about term limits! Unless the American people force some sort of petition upon Congress, the people IN Congress will NEVER vote this themselves! The same goes for their being forced to let some OTHER government or people-controlled organization set their perks, benefits and PAY! It AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!
Think about it: Congress will just rationalize that if the people REALLY want something, they will back a candidate who will do, or NOT do, whatever! AND, they will not EVER voluntarily give up power! I repeat NOT EVER! Feel free to challenge me on this! I would like to mention, however, that Congress has NEVER ceded a power for any length of time!

@BobE @Chris Lee @Evermyrtle Booby, you must lead a sad, cold, pathetic and lonely life! I pray for you! Your entire existence seems to be tied up in trying to tear down others' beliefs, or struggle to justify your belief in your false 'Anointed One' and his Demoncrap Party! You know they are having a BAD time, now, with all the disclosures of illegal political tricks! Now you have YOUR own version of Nixon and his problems! Enjoy!
