Fixing the Immigration Situation

There are two different roads, as I see it, in fixing the immigration “problem”.  First, there is the Washington D.C. way such as:

  • Call each other party, Congressman, Senator and President vile names
  • Call a meeting
  • Set up a select committee to study the situation
  • Break for a scheduled recess
  • While on break call each other names
  • Reduce staffing at the United States Borders
  • Reconvene the select committee
  • Come to an agreement on how to proceed with a bill
  • Have Obama tell the world that he will veto the bill
  • Have the Republicans say that they cannot trust the President
  • Have the Democrats call the Republican racists
  • Break for a scheduled recess
  • Have the President tell everyone that once here they get to stay here
  • Have the Republicans say they cannot trust the President
  • Have the Democrats deliver lollipops to the illegal immigrants
  • Have Washington D.C. say we need to fix the illegal immigration problem
  • Call each other party, Congressman, Senator and President vile names
  • REPEAT AS REQUIRED

Fixing the immigration problem the Shawn Bowne way:

  • Fine every business $50,000.00 per occurrence, per person for employing an illegal immigrant
  • Fine Every union $50,000.00 per occurrence, per person carrying a valid union card
  • Fine Every Religious Center (and revoke their tax free status) $50,000.00 per occurrence, per person for providing safe harbor to an illegal immigrant
  • Fine any individual $10,000.00 per occurrence, per person for employing an illegal immigrant
  • Withhold any and all funding for any sanctuary city in the United States
  • Withhold any and all funding to any State that allows a sanctuary city within it’s borders
  • Withhold any and all funds for any service provider to providing any services to illegal immigrants
  • Allow any and all illegal immigrants presently in the United States 90 days to vacate
  • Any property not sold, rented, leased, given away or surrendered will be confiscated and sold to pay for border protection
  • Build the fence that was to be built 10 years ago
  • Finally, confiscate all of Bob Beckel’s (and anyone else that wishes to provide aid to illegal activities and immigrants) money so that he cannot invest in ANY LADDER COMPANY to assist in any further breach of OUR border.
  • Problem solved

John Boehner off the deep end

Apparently Mr. Boehner has not paid any attention to the United States around him!  I say United States because I know he is paying attention to the world around him…hell he wants to invite them all to live here.

We have, in this Country, approximately 46,000,000 people in this country on food stamps.  We have approximately 6,000,000 million people on welfare.  We have seen wages, in middle class families, disintegrate by almost 4.5% under Barack Obama’s administration.  Real unemployment is projected between 10.8% and 13%.  Black unemployment, as shown by the government statistics, is at 14% (real 16.8%)  Youth unemployment is at 14.5%, Black youth unemployment is at 28.2%, Hispanic youth is at 18.1% and Asian youth unemployment is at 15.0%.

How any politician, any union official or any American Citizen can look at these figures and want to push for any type of immigration policy change is beyond me.  The list above is a list of AMERICANS that are suffering.  The list above are legal, actual non law breaking people.

Jeb can say that it is “an act of love” to come here all he wants.  Barack Obama can say he can write them glowing references with his pen and call them on his phone every day.  I want to know when any of the so called leaders of The united States of America will show, hell forget love, an iota of respect to the Americans that pay their salaries, give them their jobs, and allow them to abuse us.

You want to fix the immigration system do the following:

  • Fine each and every business $50,000.00 per illegal that they employ
  • Fine every union $ 50,000.00 for every illegal that it has on their benches and is currently representing
  • Remove funding from every State that has within their border, allows within their border or promotes, in any manner, within their border any type of sanctuary for illegal immigrants
  • Inform every College/University that they need to inform the US Government of any foreign national students that have missed more than 7 class days in any semester.  If the absence is not medical or a family emergency they need to be deported.
  • Remove any tax exempt status from any religious organization that provides sanctuary or shelter to the illegal individuals
  • Give each illegal a grace period of 90 day to sell their house (rent it out/short sell/foreclose) after that seize it through eminent domain laws (hell we do it to veterans, ranches and States all day long)
  • If they do not leave confiscate ALL of their belongings and sell them, liquidate their bank accounts and use these items to attempt to cover any costs that the taxpayers of the Country have spent on anything and everything in our welfare system.
  • Build the fence along the southern border (call it racist/bigoted/narrow minded, all you want but that is where most of them are coming from.  Pick the low hanging fruit.

This will eliminate 80-90% of “loving” portion of our problem.  The criminals will have to be dealt with in much harsher manners.  So  if there are 12,000,000 to 20,000,000 million illegals this would reduce that number to between 1,200,000 and 4,000,000.  This is a good start.  It opens jobs for Americans.  It reduces the amount of emergency visits (especially in the inner cities) It reduces (maybe only slightly) fraud and abuse in the welfare system, food stamp program and reduces overcrowding in the school systems.

Simple measures.  Straight forward words and this shows love for the American Citizen whether born here or legally naturalized.

Explaining simple for Bob Beckel

Now I know the man is not slow and I am fairly certain, without ever meeting him that he is not stupid, but, for this short sweet explanation of his response on most everything in defense of the Obama administration and Democrats as a whole I am going to refer to him as “STUPID”, I would include Juan Williams in the same original category as Bob Beckel, but I am fairly sure that Juan has been brainwashed into truly believing what he says, therefore he IS stupid.

Bob, I know that you played football, do not know how good you were but presume you were a better player than I was.  I have not quite grasped how you could have played, yet not understood that the outcome is not predicated on the final play of the game.

Here is the scenario:

  • 1st and 10 on their 33 yard line with two time outs.
  • Your kicker is 86% from 45 yards in and 93% from 39 yards in
  • You’ve passed for 360 yards 46 att. and rushed for 102 yards on 29 carries
  • There is 1:14 on the clock
  • You are down by 2 points

Here is the play selection:

  • 1st and 10 (defense is in prevent) throw deep, incomplete) 1:08 on the clock
  • 2nd and 10 (defense is in prevent) single back screen pass left gain of 1 yd  ball on the 34 (time out) 0:59 on the clock
  • 3rd and 9 (defense prevent with four man line)
  • Play called two wide outs, full back, tail back one Tight End tailback power dive 4 yds
  • Field goal 45 yds. right hash, 10mph swirl wide rt. two feet.

This game was not lost on the last play, it was lost on the 1st play with 1:14 left to play.  You know this and I know this, hence, quit saying “what do you want him to do now”.  Obama is dumb, you know it, I know it and most honest people know it.  You just keep giving him cover…STOP.  It belittles you.

Harry Reid the US Putin

What do Harry Reid and Vladimir Putin have in common?  They both believe in tyrannical imperialism.  He has made his millions off of the backs of each and every working American without any thought to who he hurt, lied about, lied to or destroyed  just as long as he gets what he wants…I’m talking about Harry here, not Vladimir.  He has elections bought for him, by major business ventures and special interest enforcers.  Wait, I’m still talking about Harry, I mean why would you think that I am talking about Vladimir?, oh yeah, he does that in Russia too.  He has his people attack, threaten and hold at gun point innocent people that do not even live anywhere near him…Harry Reid, once again!  Harry, Vladimir, there really is not any difference and it is high time that the people of Nevada stand up, get a back bone, rally the troops and recall Harry Reid.  The jackass is as far from being a Nevadan as you can be.  The idiot has to have votes recast because he has no idea what he is doing, the Tyrant wants to destroy the fabric of America…and he does not even know why other than he is an angry liberal, selfish, boorish individual.

I defy Nevadans to stand with Clive Bundy and his friends and family.  I implore anyone with an ounce of patriotism to start the petition to recall Harry “I live in Washington D.C.” Reid.  Come on Michelle Fiore stand up for the people that Harry wants to trample on.  Governor Brian Sandoval,  these are your fellow citizens.  Who in the Great State of Nevada will put their backside on the line to send this Tyrant to the end of his career?  Do not be bystanders, get involved.  Do not let the few, the pioneers of your State carry the entire burden!  March forth, make a difference and contribute, at least a little sweat, to make your State and this Country a better place with one less Tyrant in control.

Can Politicians get any dumber

Let us take a look at some very prominent Democrats

Sheila Jackson Lee

“I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.” 

“Let us vote to provide for unemployment insurance for working men and women so that faces across America will not have the tear of desperation on their faces.”

“Don’t condemn the gangbangers, they’ve got guns that are trafficked, that are not enforced, that are straw purchased and they come into places even that have strong gun laws.  Why? Because we don’t have sensible gun legislation.”

“I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together.”

“I don’t care anything about your disability.”

“And I want to say to my colleagues that I stand here asking us to do what we did not do in Vietnam.  Was to recognize the valiant and outstanding service of our men and women.  And to understand that victory had been achieved.  Today we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working.  We may not agree with all North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace.  I would look for better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they’re living side by side.  Because that was a civil war.  And because the leadership of this nation did not listen to the mothers and fathers who borned the burden of 58,000 dead and did not declare victory, the mounting death, the violence continued going up and up.  Rather than understanding the political nature of the war in Vietnam, we did not listen to those families.”

and she took an oath to defend the Constitution.  Maybe she should go back to school.  Better yet the people of Texas need to vote her out.

Cory Booker

“Being asked to pay your fair share in taxes is not class warfare. It’s patriotism,”

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2014/03/12/rep_sheila_jackson_lee_says_constitution_is_400_years_old.html

I want to see That car.  Cory, has an excuse, he went to public school.

Barack Obama

Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under a McCain…administration.  It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change.

On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.

I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.

“No, no. I have been practicing…I bowled a 129. It’s like — it was like Special Olympics, or something.” –making an off-hand joke during an appearance on “The Tonight Show”, March 19, 2009

“The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system.” –in remarks after a health care roundtable with physicians, nurses and health care providers, Washington, D.C., July 20, 2009

“One such translator was an American of Haitian descent, representative of the extraordinary work that our men and women in uniform do all around the world — Navy Corpse-Man Christian Brossard.” –mispronouncing “Corpsman” (the “ps” is silent) during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Washington, D.C., Feb. 5, 2010 (The Corpsman’s name is also Christopher, not Christian)

The list can go on and on.  My simple questions is this…why would you want to elect someone like this once let alone two (2) or more times?  We need higher standards for what is considered intelligent.  What we have now just does not cut the mustard.

Is it any wonder we are falling fast?

Bob Dole and Conservatives

Recently Chris Wallace had Bob Dole on Fox News and he had asked the former Kansas Senator if he thought he could make it in today’s GOP Primary.  Dole had said he doubted if either he OR Ronald Reagan could make it!

John McCain had said that Ted Cruz owes Bob Dole an apology.  I just don’t see it that way.  Hell, I wrote John a letter and told him to get out of MY party in 2000.  I knew he was as wishy-washy back then as the Arizona GOP has recently realized.    So let’s take a look at the highlights of these men (after WWII and Vietnam).  John McCain “followed” four (4) Democratic Senators into the crooked abyss of the Lincoln Savings and Loan scandal.  He was one of the “Keating Five”, bought and paid for.  The only reason that he and Senator John Glenn survived the Senate Ethics Committee investigation is John spent 7 years as a P.O.W. and John Glenn was one of the Original Astronauts in the Gemini Program.  One cannot live on their laurels of the past forever.

Mr. Robert Dole had been in the Senate since 1968.  He was happy to take Nelson D. Rockefellers place on the VP ticket with Gerald R. Ford.  Neither Rockefeller nor Ford could be ever construed as Conservatives.  I would commend Ford on his pardoning of Richard Nixon and attempting to get the nation past Watergate.  But none the less, Bob was, and for that matter still is, part of the old guard of the GOP.

Bob was so entrenched in the cronyism of the party that he tried to get Gerald Ford to run again in 1980 to STOP Reagan from getting the nomination.  Everyone knew that Dole did not have the debonair character to win the nomination.  So what was he going to do, STOP The Cowboy!

You see, he did not believe, in any way shape or form, that Ronald Reagan should have lead the party in 1980.  Why in God’s green earth would he think that he could win the nomination now.  Once a crony always a crony.  Once against someone with principles always against someone with principles.  Just because McCain fought for this country and Bob Dole fought for this country does not mean that they deserve praise and respect for things beyond those heroic deeds.  Neither one of them had “Power” during those years in their lives.  Neither one of them had political deals to make.  At that time in their lives they had integrity, grit, courage and believed in something.  It does not mean so now.

The truth of the matter is Ronald Reagan and Ted Cruz would have more than likely have been friends and kindred spirits.  Both of them laughed at and were/are heckled by lesser men.  Both of them wee and are jeered by the press.  Both of them treating each man, in accord with the time of their life, with due respect.  The only real difference that I can see between these two men is not in ideology nor integrity.  It is that one was the Reagan Republican and the other is one of the few, in the GOP that is actually striving to be a true Reagan Republican.  Conservative, principled, trying to find a way to convey those ideas to the rest of the party while still being so disparaged by those that with to retain the “Power”.

We will have another true Reagan Republican in the White House.  I just hope that it is not before another Jimmy Carter or Barack Obama.  I don’t know if we can take it.  I will say this, once again, in the open, John McCain…get out of MY party!

Like/Love/Respect

There was once a very good man, at least in my eyes, named Robert Bowne.  Bob was my father, and I tell most everyone that as my father if he had a preference between me liking, loving or respecting him he chose the latter.  Most of those who read this will not know the television series “Father Knows Best” nor will you understand the concept.

A child loves their parents, and for that matter even likes them most of the time, until they become teenagers.  At that point in the child’s life they do not understand how ‘someone so old can be so dumb’.  So they begin rebel.  Love held them close, not respect.  Like made them listen, not respect.

That concept is so very rarely taught to children over the last few decades that we have elected “leaders” on the premise of “likability”.  Look where that has gotten us.  Everyone “liked’ the 1st mulatto (look it up if you do not know what it means) to run for the office of President.  Hell, there were many that “loved” him.  As Barbara Walters stated he was the second coming (of what I do not know), the new messiah.

The over tanned white boy was given the Nobel Peace Prize for nothing.  This is how much he was “liked/loved”.  Where was the respect for this wannabe?  He had not accomplished anything other than being elected.  He was not a great orator nor a great leader.  He WAS liked.  NOT RESPECTED.  We are now at the precipice of the re-expansion of Russia, the continued use of chemical weapons in Syria, a Nuclear Iran, the continuation of the WORST recovery in American History, the re-birth of the Taliban and al Qadea, turmoil in Egypt, the loss of Iraq, the utter disrespect (there is that word sneaking in again) from our allies (Canada, England, Germany, et al), and the pushing of the belief that everything is okay as long as someone can pay for you to do it.

God help us!  We are faltering as a people.  We are looking for politicians that we like!  Not those that hold true to their word, that stand up on principle and do not kowtow to the every whim of those around them.

I always liked Howard Baker (look him up).  I appreciated the candor of James Traficant (look him up)  Neither of these men stood by and followed.  The Democrats need a Howard Baker in the Senate (could be Joe Manchin) and God knows that the Republicans need more Louie Gohmerts,  Trey Gowdys and Ted Cruz.

We need more respect in office and less touchy feely like/love warm and fuzzies.  Get some intestinal fortitude (guts, balls, whatever you want to call it) and start to fight for what is right not convenient.  Forget the media.  Forget reelection and do what need to be done.

Now is the Time

Eight years, that is all it took for the Whigs to disappear and the Republicans to get their foot in the door of the Presidency.  Hell, the last Whig to hold office wasn’t even elected.  Millard Fillmore took office after Zachary Taylor died.

The next two elections placed Democrats in office…then Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican to run in a heads up battle for President, won the election.  So here we are today.  Four (4) short years after the start of the Tea Parties (there are way too many to mention).  We have a Republican Party that refuses to “dance with the one who brung ya”  Between John Boehner, Peter (I hate Muslim terrorists but love Irish terrorists) King, Fred Upton, Mike Rogers, Kevin McCarthy, John McCain, John Cornyn, Thad Cochran, Lindsey Graham and last but not least Bob Corker the Tea Part, and all Conservatives for that matter, have been thrown under the bus so many times that you cannot tell the battle scars from fights with liberals from those with “moderate” Republicans.

Hell, I wrote John McCain a letter in 2000 telling him to get the hell out of MY party.  It took 14 years for the GOP in Arizona to realize what a flake he is.  Now, we have him helping Harry Reid keep as many of the GOP Senators from speaking up for Americans.  We have a “wannabe King” at 1600 PA Ave. and we need to start to teach Barack Obama and all of the moderates a lesson.

Start this way.  All of us that are not self employed need to go to our employers and change our W-4’s to 13 exemptions.  This is not illegal as long as you have 85% of your taxes paid by 12/21/2014.  Do NOT file exempt!  First and foremost this will keep more money in your pocket.  Take the difference and put it in a savings account.  Once you have done this increase your 401k to the max.  This will, in very short order, start to starve the PIGS (Politically Incorrigible Gluttonous Sleazebags).  Take the money, the PIGS food, and they will start to see that something is wrong.  Keep it from them long enough and they will start to change their habits.  This will starve the I.R.S., the politicians, the bureaucracy, and the “king”.

Next, start a recall against Harry Reid, John McCain and Lisa Murkowski. Keep Romney’s son away from Mike Lee and Mulvaney, or any other moderate, away from Tim Scott.  These five senators all have Republican Governors to assist in fixing the moderate problem.  The only problem with this scenario is McCain could run as a Democrat (remember Arlen).

See, you starve the PIGS, change his habits then you change (clean up) the pigsty.  With these few changes we can rewrite the tax code, give Barack Obama what he really wants (to be poor and share HIS wealth with others less fortunate…hell throw all of those that want to share the wealth together and give them what they want), remove the education department and give “teaching” back to the local communities, Cut the Dept. of Labor, the EPA, FTC and start to ensure that regulations are not passed without the CONSENT of Congress.

You do these few things, it really is not that much once you starve the PIGS, and we can grow the economy, grow our knowledge, grow our fortunes and once again, return to a true Republic.

Jake Tapper et al

For those of you that have not had the displeasure of watching jake tapper’s interview with Marcus Luttrell let me save you the time.  Mr. tapper not only shows his ignorance and arrogance he shows his utter disdain for The United States of America.  For jake, and those socialists like him, there is no logical, fathomable reason to go to war.  Hell, they still have their rights to speak and print their nonsensical, biased bovine feces.  They still act as though they are superior to everyone that disagrees with them.

We should start a campaign against the self righteous media and start to take their rights from them.  Take their money from them.  Take their freedom from them.  Maybe then, and just then, they would realize why people like Mr. Luttrell take their oaths, pick up their arms and fight through their last living breath.  I highly doubt they would understand but I still have high hopes.  As for Mr. Luttrell, I can only imagine the strength of conviction it took not to knock jakie boy out.  Not only did he show honor on the battle field he continues to show honor as a civilian throughout the bullshit thrown at him.  I just wish that the media would act more like the reporters of WWI and WWII where they actually showed loyalty to their country, the truth and respect for an individual’s personal conviction.  I still have hope, although it is quickly waning.

The Blame Game

So, Detroit is allowed to file for bankruptcy…yeah.  So I read on Yahoo some little twerp of moron blames the “white Republican” for leaving Detroit after Coleman Young was elected.  The lack of education based on fact is appalling!  The “White Republicans” started leaving two (2) full decades earlier.  For those of you educated after 1980 that is twenty (20) years.  Black-white-brown-red had nothing to do with it.  It had to do with Liberal versus Right, not Right Winged, just right.

I watched the council members of Detroit call the, now imprisoned, mayor of Detroit “The Honorable” Kwame Kilpatrick.  What the hell is honorable about stealing from people.  I know that they did not call him honorable because he is black they called him that because he was a devout Liberal and there can be no greater calling than to “care” and to “feel” about others even when you are robbing them blind.

The unions “care” as long as you “PAY” your dues and keep them living high on the hog.  The council members care about you as long as you keep re-electing them (God knows that they cannot find a job anywhere else).  The Mayors care as long as you keep bringing that lazy thief back into your house.  Hell the Congressman/women you keep re-electing really cares, just ask them.

So now let’s get down to the real reason for this blog.  Seven weeks ago a Jr. Senator from the Great State of Texas was lambasted, continually, by the Liberals, the Media, the So Called Conservatives and The President of These United States for wanting a delay in the implementation of “Obamacare”.  Ted Cruz, the hater, the fear monger, the liar, that cold hearted sonofabitch!  How dare he lie to everyone like this.  How dare he stand up there and tell anyone, let alone everyone, that HE cares about them.  He can’t stop Obamacare.  This program is too great to stop.  We the Liberals care.  He cannot claim that.  He is not compassionate.  He is not “One of US”.

So Barack Obama says that the A.C.A. is the “law of the land”  it cannot be stopped, it cannot be delayed.  Push on, no matter how screwed up this behemoth is.  Barack Obama said it would save, on average, each family over $2,500.00, that “if you like your plan you can keep it, PERIOD”,  “if you like your doctor you can keep him, (once again there is that war on women everyone knows that the only good doctor is a male doctor), period”.  Barack Obama said that we are all equal and that this is “…The United States of America”.  If this is true why then all of the waivers for such a noble law?  Why does it cost so much more?  Why can’t you keep your doctor, male or female?  Why can’t you keep the policy that has covered your family for the last decade?

Ted Cruz told the truth and they came at him from all sides.  Barack Obama lies, daily, and they leave him alone.  He is a liar.  He is trying to hurt the American People.  DO NOT TRUST HIM!  Look where that has gotten us.

I remember watching Sam Donaldson, no conservative by any means, on this week with David Brinkley just after interviewing George H.W. Bush regarding his book “All The Best”.  Sam said that he had covered “41” as VP for eight years and President for four (4).  He said that during that time he never really thought of President Bush as a very compassionate man.  After sitting down and interviewing him I realized “you don’t have to wear compassion on your sleeve to be compassionate.  President Bush is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met”.

So the next time you look at a politician think of the parties this way:

R=Republican=Respectful

D=Democrat= Demagogue

Or

C=Conservative=Caring

L=Liberal=Liar

Probably closer to the truth than you will ever imagine.
