Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Thoughts on the anniversary of the illegal alien protests.

I don't know what it's been like in the rest of the country. Here in the Dallas area we were primed for a repeat of last year.

On Saturday there was to be a pep rally downtown of illegal immigrant supporters, all the usual suspects were involved such as LULAC, CAIR, etc.

The overwhelming number of three dozen showed up, due no doubt (as swiftly claimed by one speaker) to fears of ICE targeting whoever was there for possible deportation. Riiiggghhtt!!

Or maybe it was because it took place on a Saturday. Unlike last year when many of the local schools found their classes semi-deserted as students took to the streets. And is it just me or didn't an overwhelming number of the protestors shown in photos from all over the country look awfully young?

So was the low turnout here due to teenagers being too busy doing whatever teens do these days (don't really want to know WHAT they do, probably a good topic for another time)?

The actual anniversary of the school walkout itself was yesterday. All the schools in the area were prepped for it. And the numbers of students hitting the streets was so great you could hear the deafening noise of........

chirping crickets...........

None, nada, zippo, zilch. No story about any students walking out this year. Maybe "mom and dad" were less than impressed to see little Juan and Maria on the front page a year ago. Something about, "You're in school to get an education, not act the fool!!"

That's what I heard on more than one occasion in the sixties, my old man figured children should be seen and not heard. Maybe a lot of "immigrants", illegal or otherwise, would agree with that philosophy.

When the protests went nationwide last year it seemed anyone interviewed was a student somewhere. Again, maybe it was just my mistaken perception. A lot of the sentiments expressed sounded like the sort of inanity only an idealistic teen would have. "Reconquista" comes to mind and yeah I know there are a fair amount of adults who will spout that term. But those adults all seem to be ivory tower intellectuals from the nearest college or race hustlers who make their living off hype and hyperbole. How many blue collar types did we see spouting that crap?

Did a lot of us Anglos just make a boogey man out of a midget?

Don't get me wrong, I think illegal aliens should be deported, anyone who employs them heavily fined and perhaps jailed. When we're not even sure if we have ten million or twenty million illegals in this nation we've got a REAL problem!

So I'm all for actively seeking the illegals, building a border fence WITH THE PERIMETER MINED and doing whatever it takes. 9/11/2001 should have woken us up to the need for tighter security. Yeah, none of the nineteen skyjackers got here illegally but it's all part of the package of homeland security. Seal the frigging borders! NOW!!

But let's not make boogeymen out of midgets. It only makes us look stupid later.
