From The ‘Melting Pot’ To A ‘Boiling Pot’

by lewwaters

A post I originally wrote elsewhere on October 4, 2007. Since then, Democrats took full control of the country for 2 years and still retain the White House and Senate. We continue down the slide Seen 5 years ago.

In 1908 a Jewish immigrant from England named Israel Zangwill penned a play titled “The Melting Pot.” The play itself has long been forgotten, but the message it instilled is heard to this day. It portrayed that all immigrants could be transformed into Americans, blending cultures and together achieving a Republic and building of a nation like no other before in man’s history.

A portion of our citizens were denied access to the Melting Pot dream for over half of the twentieth century, but as happens in a growing nation, the correction came and they were also able to take part in the dream of being an American fully.

Seeing that some of our citizens were denied access to the Melting Pot, other citizens deemed the Melting Pot dead or a myth and started pushing for what we now see as “multiculturalism.” Lost in this push is the unique Americanism that built the nation and elevated it to the greatness she held for a short time.

If It Isn’t “Amnesty, Immunity Or A Path To Citizenship,” What Is It?

by lewwaters

June 15, 2012, not exactly a “day that will live in infamy,” but an ignominious day just the same as Barack Obama, apparently believing he is a King or Dictator and not an elected temporary leader, took upon himself to completely ignore the will of the American people and Congress by declaring certain illegal aliens under the age of 30 will no longer be deported.

That citizens have been opposed and congress has voted against such moves towards amnesty have been completely ignored as Obama stated,

“This is not amnesty. This is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. It’s not a permanent fix.”

It isn’t a “fix” at all and contrary to what he says, it is indeed amnesty and immunity. What else could it be but amnesty and immunity?

Democrats pulled this nonsense back in 1986 when Republican Ronald Reagan was president, blaming the failure on him and not accepting any responsibility themselves, even though they wrote it and passed it as Democrats held majorities in both the House and Senate.

Expected to lessen illegal immigration, it had the opposite effect as now others saw that our laws mean nothing and there would be no enforcement and eventually, if they waited it out, they too would be declared immune to our laws.

Illegal Aliens Protest Outsourcing Jobs in Portland

by lewwaters

Saturday, Dec. 17, 2011, Illegal Aliens held a peaceful rally in Portland, Oregon protesting the outsourcing of American Jobs.

Perhaps these Illegal Aliens never heard of NAFTA?

Perhaps too, if they held similar rallies in their home countries, they could remain there?

I Should Be Entitled to a Congressional Medal of Honor!

by lewwaters

The Congressional Medal of Honor is America’s highest award for bravery and few receive it, even less that is still alive. Currently, less than 100 Veterans who are recipients of the medal are still living. That’s less than 100 men out of approximately 24 Million Veterans.

I didn’t receive a Congressional Medal of Honor because I never performed any act of bravery that rose to the level of sacrifice that would merit one. But, why should that matter? I served a little over 8 years active duty in the U.S. Army, spent 18 months in Vietnam, was shot at, mortared, subjected to rocket attacks and sapper attacks, just like many others.

But, without performing that act of “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of my life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States,” I am not a recipient.

So, what makes me think I should receive one now?

“Latino’s Are More Fertile Than Non-Latino’s”

by lewwaters

Who knew, right?

Besides the obvious implication of racism in the title, before you jump on me for being racist, allow me to point out that the title is a quote from Charles Rynerson, a demographer at Portland State Population Research Center and used in an article published in the Columbian, County’s surge in children bucks local, national trends.

The article goes on to tell us that we have seen a, “13.7 percent upsurge in the number of children in Clark County in the past 10 years, the largest growth in the Portland metro area and a trend that goes against the national tide of stagnation.”

35% Increase In Illegal Aliens in Washington State

by lewwaters

The Seattle Times reports: “An estimated 230,000 illegal immigrants were living in Washington state in 2010 — 35 percent more than three years earlier.”

That gives Washington State the seventh-highest rate of illegal immigrants in the country. 3 years ago, we didn’t place in the top ten!

Nationally, the numbers estimated of illegal aliens in the country remains virtually unchanged with a slight decrease, according to the Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C.

The director of the state’s Commission on Hispanic Affairs, Uriel Iñiguez says, “the fact that the illegal immigrant population nationally hasn’t declined shows people aren’t going anywhere,” adding “It’s one of the arguments I make all the time — passing laws won’t prevent people from being here undocumented.

Do We Need Any More Reason to Seal The Border?

by lewwaters

It remains alarming that the flood of ILLEGAL aliens is allowed to continue through our porous borders. Cries of poor disadvantaged people seeking a better life are only a portion of those coming across.

Drug dealers, gang members and even some suspects of radical Islamic terrorism have made their way through too.

And now, we read Mexico thwarts Hezbollah bid to set up South American network

Mexico foiled an attempt by Hezbollah to establish a network in South America, a Kuwaiti newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Hezbollah operatives employed Mexicans nationals with family ties to Lebanon to set up the network, designed to target Israel and the West, the Al-Seyassah daily said.
According to the report, Mexican police mounted a surveillance operation on the group’s leader, Jameel Nasr, who traveled frequently to Lebanon to receive information and instructions from Hezbollah commanders there.
Police say Nasr also made frequent trips to other countries in Latin America, including a two-month stay in Venezuela in the summer of 2008.

Nasr was living in Tijuana, Mexico at the time of his arrest, the report said.

Ask yourself just why would a Hezbollah leader be setting up a terrorist network in South and Central America, headquartered in Tijuana, just across the border?

It is long past time both parties stopped the bickering back and forth and pushing for granting another amnesty, which would have given any terrorists that may have already snuck across the border, legitimacy.

SEAL THE BORDER NOW!!

Dengue Fever Hits Key West, Florida

by lewwaters

Mosquito borne diseases once thought eradicated seem to be returning since the ban on the use of DDT was imposed in 1972.

ABC News tells us,

“More than two dozen cases of locally-acquired dengue fever have hit the resort town of Key West, Fla., in the past nine months, officials from the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.”

“The re-emergence of dengue in Florida as well as the threat posed to the U.S. from other emerging mosquito-borne arboviruses (e.g., chikungunya) emphasizes the necessity for strong vector-borne surveillance and mosquito control infrastructure to rapidly identify and control outbreaks of dengue or other mosquito-borne diseases,” MMWR’s editors wrote in a commentary accompanying the report.

It is endemic in the Western Hemisphere from Mexico southward. Most cases seen by U.S. physicians have involved travelers to such regions.

Due to the resurgence of such disease, primarily in Africa, many advocate lifting the restrictions placed on DDT use.

Growing up in South Florida, I recall the trucks going up and down streets spraying insecticide. To us, they were fog trucks that we ran behind, hiding in the fog.

Nearing 62 years old I have no ill effects nor does anyone else I am in touch with that I grew up with.

DDT was the most effective weapon combating this and many other mosquito borne diseases, which are worse than possible ill effects of DDT.
