IT AIN'T ABOUT "HATING", IT'S ABOUT SURVIVAL!

First of all, I hope that all of you had a fun and or restful 3-day holiday. Today is the day we begin our 3rd month of doing this little blog. So far, it's been an absolute blast and your reaction expressed in notes written to me at scottstjames@sbcglobal.net have been fun, informative and as you know, I do write back.

Our Memorial Day thoughts resulted in the most reaction we've gotten in our two months of operation. Not the most "hits", but by far the most reaction. If you missed it, you can read it right after this blog entry ends.

We begin our third month with another observation about the "800 pound gorilla in the room" OUR ROOM! THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA's ROOM!

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION!!

A lot of well meaning people are trying to figure out a way for 12 million or more people who are here illegally, to become legal. And by the way, let's include a bunch of relatives of these illegals as well. These same well meaning people are trying to sell us on the idea that if we agree to this, that somehow the illegal immigration situation will go away or at least become manageable. To support their argument(s), many of these same well meaning people say that people who oppose this do so because of "hatred".

My response to that is, hatred of what or whom? Mexicans?

How about this? Hatred of laws being broken over and over again. And if we bend over and allow the amnesty for all the lawbreakers who are currently here why are we supposed to believe that more potential lawbreakers, watching what's happening, won't turn that 12 million number to 24 million or more! A lot more!

Folks, I can't speak for everyone, but I can certainly speak for me. It ain't about hating. It's about survival. We are too crowded now and we don't need millions more who take advantage of legal loopholes which is costing us legal taxpayers lots and lots of money we'd rather be spending on something else.

Like, you know, the Iraq war.

Okay, maybe it would be nice if we could solve that little problem as well.

Of course that would take leadership and I'm reminded of something Ronald Reagan once said.
As many people know, Reagan was a Democrat before becoming a Republican. When asked why he left that party, Reagan said, "I didn't leave the Democratic party! It left me! I know how you feel, Mr. President. I'm feeling the same way in reverse. And I want to thank Pacific Pioneer Broadcaster's President Chuck Southcott for reminding me of that quote.

MORE TROUBLE FOR LINDSAY LOHAN!

After hitting a curb and some shrubbery with her car early Saturday morning, Lindsay Lohan was tracked to a hospital where she was charged with DUI. Some cocaine was allegedly found in her car, but ownership of that drug has yet to be determined. Lohan was injured (we're told) in her upper chest area. Two other people were in her car, a car we're told that usually sits a total of two.

"Girls just wanna have fun?"

I suppose, but for the life of me, I don't understand why she doesn't hire a driver. I know. Because she plays hard, she figures that a driver might sell her out to the tabloids. I don't know if more money to her driver would solve that problem, but the way she's going now, she's in danger of becoming a statistic. Lindsay Lohan is not some wannabe like some young people we read about. Lindsay Lohan is a good actress who has the capability (in my view) of becoming a great actress. What Lindsay Lohan seems to need most right now is a parent! But when you look at the two she does have, the thought of a foster parent seems to be a more desirable option.

I'm rootin' for ya, kid!

ROSIE O'DONNELL AND ELISABETH HASSELBECK!

Well, it was fun while it lasted, wasn't it? Those two arguing with each other helped "The View" get ratings the likes of which they've never had and now it's over. After their latest on-air argument, Rosie says she's had enough and most folks think she'd like to come back with her own show that would be on the same time "The View" is.

TWO SEASON FINALES TONIGHT!

At 9 on FOX, "House" will air it's final new episode of the season and at 10 on ABC, "Boston Legal" will air it's final new episode. I think these shows provide us with good entertainment week after week after week.

EDITOR's NOTE: If you read this before pictures have been added, come back. Pictures will be up soon. If you have any comments and or suggestions, please send them to scottstjames@sbcglobal.net

TOMORROW:

The million dollar question for Republican presidential candidates and thoughts about $15 pillows, $2 glasses of water and $10 for no middle seats on airlines.

I read something last week that I think is extremely appropriate for your commentary on survival. And, I for one agree, survival is the correct word.

As a native of Southern California, I am keenly aware of the incredible injustices done to foreigners. Yet I'm also sensitive to the issue of the amount of taxes we had to pay to support illegal immigrants in our state.

Do you think the following laws, if implemented in our country, would be a bit harsh? Read them over. Be sure to read all the way to the end.

1) No special bilingual programs in the schools.

2) No special ballots for elections.

3) All government business will be conducted in our language.

4) Foreigners will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.

5)Foreigners will NEVER be able to hold political office.

6)Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers.
- No welfare
- no food stamps
- no health care, or other government assistance programs.

7) Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

8) If foreigners do come and want to buy land that will be okay.
BUT options will be restricted.
Foreigners would not allowed waterfront property. That is reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.

9) Foreigners may not protest; no demonstrations, no waving a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies.
If you do you will be deported.

10) If you do come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail.

So what do you think? Are these concepts too harsh?

Then let me explain one little detail. The above items ARE real LAWS!

In Mexico.
