The Second Amendment and Amnesty

Justices affirm gun rights – Los Angeles Times

The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the Second Amendment is, indeed, constitutional. For some of us that was an obvious no-brainer. But grasping the obvious has always been hard for liberals, especially when it goes contrary to their agenda.

So, while constitutionalists around the country do the Happy Dance, I’m stuck pondering this question, “Does this mean that when the Democrats grant amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens in this country, those aliens-turned-citizens will have the right to bear arms?”  The answer is, “Yes. If we uphold our Constitution, it does.” So, while the Court’s decision is good news constitutionally, it does serve as a sobering reminder of what we face if Obama’s “Get Out the Vote” campaign called Amnesty is successful.

For all practical purposes, nothing has changed. The court only upheld what we all (sans liberals) already knew-Americans have the right to keep and bear arms. But, once amnesty is passed (deemed, shoved through, imposed in the dark of night) the rights that legitimate Americans have fought for and died to protect will be awarded to illegal aliens who, from the looks of it, really just want the freebies.

Aside from being here illegally (and, really, isn’t that reason enough?),  I have a couple other areas of concern.

For starters, there are those among the illegal alien crowd in this country who have no problem flaunting their illegal-but-entitled status. From protest marches and burning the American flag to mailing bricks to congressmen and defacing public property, this crowd has invaded our country with one hand out and the other hand brandishing the driving finger. This isn’t exactly how industrious, grateful people conduct themselves. In fact, it is tantamount to breaking into my basement window and then protesting about not having any clean towels. So, while the Supreme Court’s ruling is good news for American citizens, the thought of these disgruntled illegal-potentially legal aliens having the “right” to keep and bear arms makes my blood run cold.

And, for grins, let’s not forget that there are more than a few illegal aliens who are members of the Mexican drug cartel. The Second Amendment will apply to them as well. Nothing says constitutional like a Mexican drug lord having the right to bear arms.

I’m not saying the Second Amendment’s slim victory Thursday was a bad thing. I am saying, however, that the Second Amendment is for legitimate American citizens only.

Hillary Raises Bar For Democrats

“Mrs. Clinton, how do you spell liberal?”

“E-X-P-L-O-I-T.” And Hillary Clinton is our spelling bee winner.

At a gathering of Irish immigrants, Mrs. Clinton accused Bush of trying to create a police state by wanting to round up millions of illegal aliens, nearly three-fourths of her voting base, and ship them back to their homeland. Article Link

Well, she’s got some kahonas, I’ll give her that. But what is hard to understand, (well, not really), is why she would make this speech to a room full of immigrants who came to this country the legal way? Surely she realizes that they, like the rest of us, are pretty sick and tired of the hand outs these illegals are getting.

In typical liberal fashion, the situation of one group can either be applied to another or used for political gain. On the issue of equality for homosexuals, liberals generally use the oppression of the black population in the ’60’s as fuel for the debate. When they wanted to paint Bill Clinton as some kind of advocate for the little disabled guy they wheeled Christopher Reeves on stage at the 1996 Democratic National Convention. And in their fierce opposition to the war in Iraq they shamelessly used an unstable, grieving Cindy Sheehan as their mouthpiece. (Sheehan, however, has yet to realize she is no longer on the dem’s payroll.) So, in their scary little minds, it makes perfect sense to think of legal Irish immigrants as just the bunch to have on board in their quest for tolerance toward illegal immigrants.

The big glaring difference between the Irish and the Mexicans, aside from the fact that one group was legal and the other isn’t, is that, for the most part, the Irish were grateful to be in America. No, it wasn’t easy and there was discrimination and a few riots here and there, but the Irish persevered and came to America on America’s terms, i.e., learning the language and paying taxes. And because of that they have become an invaluable segment of our culture.

But when it comes to the Mexicans sneaking over the border, they not only don’t have a desire to speak our language, they are getting the joy of watching America trip all over itself trying to accommodate such arrogance (or laziness, I’m not sure which.) Can’t profess to be English speaking American

In Hillary’s comment, “Don’t turn your backs on what made this country great”, she doesn’t seem to realize she is doing just that. By allowing clemency to illegals she is essentially spitting in the faces of those immigrants who have done their time standing in lines, filled out mountains of paperwork, and are actually contributing to the betterment of this country. Those people, not the ones sliming in under the cover of darkness, are the ones who have made this country great.

In a four page letter to constituents, Hillary supported allowing some of the estimated 11 million illegal workers to earn citizenship.

Such changes should include “a path to earned citizenship for those who are here, working hard, paying taxes, respecting the law, and willing to meet a high bar for becoming a citizen,” Clinton wrote.

Hmmm, working hard, paying taxes, respecting the law, and willing to meet a high bar for becoming a citizen? Forget the illegal aliens, it would be nice if we could expect as much from the liberal democrats.

Illigal Immigration Just Isn’t Funny

When asked to write a humorous commentary on illegal immigration my immediate response was, “Illegal immigration isn’t funny.”

Well, it isn’t.

I mean, we’re talking about national security here. What could possibly be funny about scads of disgruntled Mexicans pouring into our country uninvited like Hollywood ilk into a kabbalah?

And I fail to see even a sliver of humor in the Mexican government’s 5-day seminars called, “Operation Flee” where, according to the brochure,

“Prospective immigrants are equipped with the skills they’ll need for a successful relocation to America.”

A sample of some of the workshops include:

Document Forgery: How to create quality documents that will stand up to minimal scrutiny. Supplies needed: Small picture of yourself, construction paper, scissors, glue, tape, colored pencils, hot iron. Laminate will be provided.

Third Trimester Traveling: Discussion will focus on crossing the border in the third trimester to ensure a legal American offspring. Attendees will receive a complimentary diaper bag and two WIC vouchers.

From Maria to Sally; Juan to Brad: Tips on how to scan the obituaries for that perfect American name. This will be a small group setting by the pool. Sign up now. This is a popular one!

Thinking Like a Democrat: Everything you need to know about the American political process. This will be a video presentation. Guest speaker: Michael Moore

The Joy of Entitlement: A hands on workshop where attendees will practice filling out government assistance forms. Supplies needed: Eraser.

Beginning Survival Skills: Enjoy a one mile walk simulating the route from Mexico to several different border infiltration sites. Participants will learn basic survival skills while enjoying such games as: German Spotlight, Hide and Seek, and Red Rover. Supplies needed: Canteen, dark clothing. Supplies provided: Map. Guest speaker: Rev. Robin Hoover

Identifying American Currency: Learn to identify and use American currency in stores, banks, and street corners. Supplies provided: Money in the form of large wrapped bundles, small bills, coins, checks, and vouchers. Supplies needed: None

Your Vote Counts: After a brief history of American politics attendees will cast mock votes with an authentic 2000 Florida election ballot. Door prizes will be awarded for the ballot with the most hanging chads. Guest speaker: Al Gore

Conversational English: (Due to low attendance in the past this workshop might be cancelled.)

The small print spanning the bottom of the back page of the brochure says, “Funding for Rock the Vote provided by the American DNC”, what ever that means.

No, this doesn’t strike me as funny at all. I’m afraid I’ll have to pass on this particular assignment.
