My hats off to the Minutemen

I love America. I love America for her freedom and her gorgeous open space. Unfortunately, we're losing both.

We're losing freedom because of indifference and fear. Too many good folks don't vote, don't raise a stink when some evil law gets passed and don't put their foot down. As for fear, today's politicians have good folk convinced that we need to trade in our freedoms to protect ourselves from terrorists. That's just plain stupid because it's freedom that will protect us against terrorism in the first place. But that's another rant for another day. I want to talk about the decline of our open space.

Americans have already achieved zero population growth. Then why is America's population spiraling out of control? Immigration. We simply allow too many immigrants.

If you sit in your a** all day and watch the idiot box, then it shouldn't concern you. But if you love the outdoors, like to hunt, fish, hike, mountain bike, rock climb, shoot nature photography, shoot outdoor porn, ski, snowboard, etc., you've probably noticed that every year, you seem to have less places to go.

Somebody though is taking matters in their own hands. There's a group of good Americans who are working within the law to catch illegal aliens crossing the border in Arizona. They're called the Minuteman Project, and they do not physically detain illegals. Rather, they track them down and alert U.S. Border Patrol agents of their whereabouts. That's it. And they're highly successful at it too.

For more information, check out their website at The Minuteman Project homepage. Now, if only they'd come here to California.

Don't know how I feel about this one. Okay, actually I do know, but it's not feasible. I have proposed many times to friends that the US should take over Mexico. I mean, obviously, Mexicans aren't happy there. So, why not make it all the US and be done with it?

At any rate, I do know that the US gives money to countries to make it so that these countries have some of the things we have--indoor plumbing, schools, etc. Then, the people of these countries go and move here before these things have a chance to take effect! That's irritating. So, I say, find out where the immigrants are mostly coming from, offer to help them with the $$ that we'd use here in the states to help support them, and then close off the f-ing borders! There, I said it. Now I'm ashamed.

It's ridiculous how Bush and various illegal immigrant support groups are denouncing the Minutemen as "vigilantes." Outside of the border states people think it's somehow racist to want to stop this flow when all they're doing is taking the jobs Americans don't want. They're ignoring the huge cost of the added population and drain on government services and virtually no money being recycled in our economy.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Check out the History Channel, Discovery Channel etc for additional stuff ZombieJr might find interesting. They come up with new historical discoveries all the time.
Back to your subject. News item today-the US now has 7000 cases of LEPROSY due to illegal aliens. This is in addition to dragging back Tuberculosis, Polio, Whooping Cough etc. Legal aliens have to be medically tested before they enter the country. Is this a no-brainer or what?
I like your blog and agree with a lot of your opinions. I'll be back!

Kitkat, never worry about being PC on this board. As I've said in my description, we're preparing against an all-out war against zombies. There will be no time for feelings. Thanks for the well thought out reply.

Jason, yes, this is a huge gripe I have with the current administration.

Tshsmom, thanks for the facts. You have facts to back your beliefs. I wish more people were as rational as you. You're welcome here anytime, even if you disagree with some of my beliefs. I have a thick skin, and expect people not to agree with everything I say. So if I'm being an idiot, feel free to call me on it.

Well, Zombie I agree with you again. I wanted to start donating money to the administration this year but after Bush's speech about out "guest worker" (It's amnesty goddamnit!) program I said that I will not give the republicans another cent until they do something serious about the borders. These people are heros, they took the action into their own hands and got people's attention. Don't worry Zombie they will be coming to cali soon after their done with the Canadian border. As a sidenote, ever heard of a city called LaJolla? I was born there but moved away when I was 3...

La Jolla is gorgeous! Sometimes I make it down that way and would live there if I could afford it.

Ben - Yes, heard about LaJolla but never been through it. Which county?
Jason - Cool, I'll definitely check it out next time I'm in SoCal.
