Bring On The $6 Gallon Of Gas / It would revolutionize America. It would make us all better humans. But could you handle it?

Bring On The $6 Gallon Of Gas / It would revolutionize America. It would make us all better humans. But could you handle it? No wait, not six. To hell with that. Make it 10. Ten bucks a gallon, no matter what the going rate for a barrel of light sweet crude. That would so completely, violently, brilliantly do it. Revolutionize the country. Firebomb our pungent stasis. Change everything. Don't you agree?

Charlie Daniels on Illegal Immigrants

[Posted in the spirit of fairness to my readers. We post ALL sides of
an issue if the content is available. DON'T give me any crap about
racism. I grew up in the San Jacquin Valley in California. I have
many Hispanics friends and schoolmates. If you give me crap I will
publish your email and no-doubt I will make an effor to humiliate you
every way I can. If you write a coherent arguement that counters what
is said, below, I will gladly publish it, un-edited. Tell me if you
want your name included or not. Thank you. -Ed.]

I don't know how everybody else feels about it, but to me I think
Hispanic people in this country, legally or illegally, made a huge
public relations mistake with their recent demonstrations.

I don't blame anybody in the world for wanting to come to the United
States of America, as it is a truly wonderful place.

But when the first thing you do when you set foot on American soil is
illegal it is flat-out wrong and I don't care how many lala land left
heads come out of the woodwork and start trying to give me sensitivity

I don't need sensitivity lessons, in fact I don't have anything
against Mexicans! I just have something against criminals. And anybody
who comes into this country illegally is a criminal and if you don't
believe it try coming into America from a foreign country without a
passport and see how far you get.

What disturbs me about the demonstrations is that it's tantamount to
saying, "I am going to come into your country even if it means
breaking your laws and there's nothing you can do about it.

It's an "in your face" action and speaking just for me I don't like it
one little bit and if there were a half dozen pairs of gonads in
Washington bigger than English peas it wouldn't be happening.

Where are you, you bunch of lily livered, pantywaist, forked tongued,
sorry excuses for defenders of The Constitution? Have you been
drinking the water out of the Potomac again?

And even if you pass a bill on immigration it will probably be so pork
laden and watered down that it won't mean anything anyway. Besides,
what good is another law going to do when you won't enforce the ones
on the books now?

And what ever happened to the polls guys? I thought you folks were the
quintessential finger wetters. Well, you sure ain't paying any
attention to the polls this time because somewhere around eighty
percent of Americans want something done about this mess, and mess it
is and getting bigger everyday.

This is no longer a problem, it is a dilemma and headed for being a
tragedy. Do you honestly think that what happened in France with the
Muslims can't happen here when the businesses who hire these people
finally run out of jobs and a few million disillusioned Hispanics take
to the streets?

If you, Mr. President, Congressmen and Senators, knuckle under on this
and refuse to do something meaningful it means that you care nothing
for the kind of country your children and grandchildren will inherit.
But I guess that doesn't matter as long as you get reelected. Shame on

One of the big problems in America today is that if you have the nerve
to say anything derogatory about any group of people (except
Christians) you are going to be screamed at by the media and called a
racist, a bigot and anything else they can think of to call you.

Well, I've been pounded by the media before and I'm still rockin' and
rollin' and when it comes to speaking the truth I fear not. And the
truth is that the gutless, gonadless, milksop politicians are just
about to sell out the United States of America because they don't have
the intestinal fortitude to stand up to the face reality.

And the reality is that we would never allow any other group of people
to have 12 million illegals in this country and turn around and say,
"Oh it's OK, ya'll can stay here if you'll just allow us to slap your

And I know that some of you who read this column are saying "Well
what's wrong with that?" I'll tell you what's wrong with it. These
people could be from Mars as far as we know. We don't know who they
are, where they are or what they're up to and the way the Congress is
going we're not going to.

Does this make sense? Labor force you say? We already subsidize
corporate agriculture as it is, must we subsidize their labor as well?

If these people were from Haiti would we be so fast to turn a blind
eye to them or if they were from Somalia or Afghanistan? I think not.

All the media shows us are pictures of hard working Hispanics who have
crossed the border just to try to better their life.

They don't show you pictures of the Feds rounding up members of MS 13,
the violent gang who came across the same way the decent folks did.
They don't tell you about the living conditions of the Mexican
illegals some fat cat hired to pick his crop.

I want to make two predictions

No. 1: This situation is going to grow and fester until it erupts in
violence on our streets while the wimps in Washington drag their toes
in the dirt and try to figure how many tons of political hay they can
make to the acre.

No 2: Somebody is going to cross that border with some kind of weapon
of mass destruction and set it off in a major American city after
which there will be a backlash such as this country has never
experienced and the Capitol building in Washington will probably tilt
as Congressmen and Senators rush to the other side of the issue.

I don't know about you but I would love to see just one major
politician stand up and say,"I don't care who I make mad and I don't
care how many votes I lose, this is a desperate situation and I'm
going to lead the fight to get it straightened out.

I don't blame anybody for wanting to come to America, but if you don't
respect our immigration laws why should you respect any others.

And by the way, this is America and our flag has stars and stripes.
Please get that other one out of my face.

Spot the rogue :

Spot the rogue : "The countdown to a massive aerial bombing of Iran, possibly using bunker busting nuclear weapons, has begun. In strict adherence to a script written jointly by the British and US foreign offices and exposed by The Times of London some two months ago, the US, Britain and, surprisingly, France are pushing the UN Security Council towards passing a resolution condemning Iran’s refusal to stop uranium enrichment under chapter 7 of the UN charter. This, as Nicholas Burns of the US State Department reminded reporters, will “make the Security Council’s resolutions mandatory under international law” and justify the imposition of a variety of sanctions. Although Burns did not say so explicitly, reporters were left in no doubt that such a resolution would be a prelude to a surgical strike against Iran. A chapter 7 resolution would provide the fig leaf the US has been looking for.

Such a strike would most probably not be confined to a few key nuclear and missile installations. Pentagon planners made it clear to Seymour Hersh that its purpose would be to prevent Iran from launching any retaliatory strike against international shipping in the straits of Hormuz or other American allies and assets in the Gulf. It would aim at destroying all its airfields, ports, naval installations, submarine depots, missile bases and support facilities. According"
