Boomers Ramblings “The Slippery Slope”

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.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
