Tax Increases, Affordable Housing, What About Jobs?

by lewwaters

Ho Bo 2We all realize there is a homeless population in our community. A population that for any number of reasons, seems to have grown over the last couple years. Along with that growth comes the problem of how do we deal with them.

Once was the time they were referred to as bums, ho bo’s, vagrants, derelicts, tramps and such and communities did their best to usher them away. A kinder term from years ago was a drifter. From what I have read it seemed to peak during the years of the Great Depression, but has been around for all time.

But times have changed and now they are seen as “homeless,” people simply down on their luck, pushed out of jobs by greedy corporations, landlords or just the economic times as we continue struggling to climb out of the Great Recession that started about 9 years ago.

Porous Borders, It’s Not “For the Children”

by lewwaters

Illegal Immigration 1For many years many of us have protested and complained about what is seen as “porous borders,” illegal aliens essentially waltzing across our Southern Border for Mexico and parts further south. As we raised alarms, bleeding hearts would shoot us down with claims of bigotry against Hispanics and just being cold-hearted to the plight of the poor people struggling to better their lives by illegally sneaking into our country or the escape violence and poverty in theirs.

Somewhere along the line it was changed from “Illegal Alien” to “Undocumented Workers.”

We were assured there was no problem and that allowing such porous borders only enhanced our economy and the people were better off here instead of striving to improve conditions wherever they originated from.

Illegal Aliens Defrauding the American Taxpayers?

by lewwaters

For all of the bleeding hearts who keep insisting how much we need illegal aliens in America and they do the work that American won’t do, a special news report from Indiana’s WTHR 13 News might not sit well with you.

The video report below is of a whistle blower & tax preparer who is revealing just how many Billions of our dollars are being sent to illegal aliens for nieces and nephews they are claiming as dependents in order to receive thousands of tax dollars refunded under the Child Tax Credit.

One small hitch, those nieces and nephews are not even in our country, but sitting down in Mexico.

Local Illegals & Bleeding Hearts Object To I-409, “Respect For Law”

by lewwaters

For the past few weekends, my wife and I have been joining in the effort to gather signatures for the petition for I-409, a citizens initiative to “encourage” the legislature and authorities to deal with Illegal Immigrants. The purpose of the petition is to qualify the initiative for the 2009 ballot, should our legislature decide to not act on it.

We have been at gun shows both in Portland and at the Clark County Fairgrounds. Of late, we have received permission to set up outside of retail stores, so long as we do not harass patrons and comply with distance and sign requirements, as laid out by the retailers.

We have only been too happy to comply.

Overall, response has been good as many Clark County citizens share the concern over the influx of Illegal Immigrants into our community. A few, though, seem to feel they have the right to shout vulgarities, issue threats and harass the signature gatherers either by confronting us or filing false charges to the retail managers inside the stores.

Many of those acting in such a manner have every appearance of being Illegal Immigrants themselves and act upon the assumption of their right to interfere and stop American Citizens from exercising our constitutional right to seek redress from the government by gathering signatures on the petition to force Washington State to stop granting drivers licenses to Illegals, have employers use e-verify to ensure potential employees are legally entitled to work in America and to give Law Enforcement within the state the tools needed to enforce Federal Immigration Laws.

Some of the minor examples of the outrage expressed by Illegals are their driving by the table, music blaring and flashing a Washington Drivers License at us, before they hop their cars and speed off.

Some feel the need to call us vulgar names, even though at times it is women gathering the signatures and of course, women and children entering and leaving the stores. Others don’t understand that we may understand foreign vulgarities they spew and spew them in their native language.

Of late, some have stopped by with Oregon License plates to confront the gatherers and attempt at inciting an incident. Last weekend, a woman stopped by and asked to sign the petition. Once the pen was in her hand, she scrawled “F**K YOU!” across the petition, an illegal act itself.

Following her out in the parking lot to obtain her license number to report her to the Police, she could only scream she was being “stalked.” Brave lady.

Cat calls of “racist” are common as well as “pigs” and other infantile sophomoric name-calling as “Nazi’s,” “Fascists,” and generally “bad people” that want to force others to go hungry and not have jobs.

Today, one from Oregon thought he could intimidate my wife by going nose to nose with her yelling what a “racist” she is. Bad move, amigo. My wife, born of a Mexican father and White mother and raised mostly by a Black stepfather is about the least racist person I have ever met.

He was shocked that his intimidation did not work and neither was his screaming he works with lawyers and was going to take photos of the signature gathering effort. After he left, also driving by with his truck dragging its tail end and snapping cell phone photos, my wife did comment that he could use some Listerine. Another woman who witnessed the encounter congratulated my wife for standing firm against this interloper.

Another stopped by to express his anger by threatening to turn the table over, while his wife (I assume) was calling him and telling him to stop making such a fool of himself in public.

Lest you think it is only Illegals that confront us, we have had several bleeding hearts spew forth the same swill, asking who would we have pick our fruit and vegetables should they return to their country.

The amazing thing to me is that these bleeding hearts apparently only see immigrants as slaves to do our work we don’t want to do and to keep prices low by working for slave wages in substandard conditions. Did we not fight a war once to end such treatment of people in our country?

It escapes these bleeding hearts that if immigrants came her legally, they would not be subjected to such mistreatment, as the Korean man I am sponsoring for citizenship is doing. As complicated and wrapped up in red tape as the proper procedure is, he is following it and works a decent paying job, receiving the same treatment as any other worker, with no worries about I.C.E. raids.

Parents stop in front of us to “teach” their children how wrong we are for following the constitutionally mandated procedure to change our laws, instead of teaching them they have the right, under our constitution, to follow the same procedure to counter laws they feel may be unjust or in need of strengthening.

The anger expressed by both bleeding hearts and Illegals at a citizen effort to enforce our laws just amazes me. I am left wondering what other laws we may ignore on a whim, with impunity.

Totally ignored is that those entering our country illegally may be bringing diseases back into the country that we had eradicated, drive wages down by working for less minimum wage and drain our economy by taking benefits originally set-up to help legal citizens.

Billions of dollars are sent back to native countries that never circulate in our economy and fall into the hands of corrupt officials in native countries.

Oregon passed a measure denying Illegal Immigrants Drivers Licenses last year, but they simply come to Washington and obtain a Washington Drivers License, return to Oregon and when able, transfer to an Oregon License, circumventing their laws.

Totally unnoticed by those who stop by our table to incite trouble is that after they leave, several bystanders walk up and sign the petition, many saying they originally weren’t going to, but after what they just witnessed, will.

If the effort is to stop this initiative, it isn’t working. Americans have this habit of seeing through facades and charades eventually and joining in efforts to correct wrongs. For every scene caused by these people, we not only gain signatures but also end up sending petitions with many to gather signatures of their friends, neighbors and relatives.

I have no doubt we will collect the needed signatures in time to place this initiative before our legislature or on the next ballot.

If you go shopping and see a table set up and it is us, don’t be afraid to show your support. Stop by and sign the petition, if you are of mind to. We welcome you and will not do you any harm.

If you don’t care for what we do, don’t sign the petition it’s that simple. But please, just walk on by. Scowl if you wish. Grunt and groan if you desire, we don’t mind. But, if you feel you have the right to interfere with our legal signature gathering effort, you are only hurting your side and showing others what an ass you are.
