First of all let me just say that this is not about skiing.
There a quite a few (hmmmmm no) there a lot of people that feel we ought to close the borders and stop the flow of illegal aliens. In my need/desire to get Americans to face the truth. I feel it is necessary to touch on the subject of the illegal immigrants that graced these shores a little over 200 years ago. Because there was no type of rule like we have now, (some of you think it is a democracy), there was no way of stopping our ancestors from just plain taking over. Get this a majority of them thought that they were actually doing some good. As the armies developed and conquered areas that didn’t really belong to them. All in the name of the greater good. No regard for the greater good of the indigenous peoples.
Now people want to scream foul when millions of Latin American people want to come over here to live a better life. Some of them used to believe the streets were paved with gold. What a joke. The streets were and still are paved with the blood, sweat, and tears of the working folks. (I was going to say working man, decided I needed to revise that, just for you ladies).
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait a minute. They are trying to escape a life in which they are kept down and in some cases persecuted by there own government. That sounds awful familiar. By the way do any of you know that back in the 1820’s the territory of Mexico included the area we now call California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and Oklahoma. WOW and we say they are sneaking back into our land.
OK so we won it fair and square. That is an argument you can make. We out gunned them we out fought them. Let me ask this. If China were to want to collect on the debt we seem to owe them and they came in here with superior weapons and took the country by force. Suppose they put all our able-bodied men and women to work in factories and sweat shops until the debt was paid. Also suppose that with what they were going to pay us it would take three to four hundred years to pay it off. Provided our population doesn’t dwindle. What say you then did they win it fair and square? Would you want to take it back?
I am not saying the Mexican people are planning a revolt to get their land back. By the way not everybody that crosses the southern border is Mexican. There are Guatemalans, Hondurans, Nicaraguans, ,,,,,,You get the point. I am not saying the Native Americans are planning an uprising anytime soon. Although I wouldn’t blame them.
This is just part one of the subject I wish to address. It is based on a discussion I had at work today. The other part of that chat had to be continued as this will be tomorrow. It is getting late and it is getting hard to concentrate.
