It is Peter who cried wolf ...

I about fell out of the chair laughing

when I strayed onto NPR, and some twit called illegal immigrants "undocumented immigrants."

That was a new one to me.

Yeah, Right!

"The official said it's important to send a strong message that children who make it into the U.S. without authorization do not have a free pass to stay, in part to discourage more from making a dangerous journey here. The funding request includes $5 million for the State Department to run media campaigns in Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to urge potential unauthorized immigrants not to make the trek."

Those magic media campaign words won't send them back, when ALL other signals are, "Welcome, yet-to-be-documented, non-applicants for special citizenship within our boarders." Don't they get that they're being used, and abused, by the same elitists that are treating Hispanics here, among all other races, as trash by caring less for legally-naturalized immigrants, than these state-sponsored and dumped masses of Central Americans. I understand their feelings of temporary betterment; I just don't know why that would give them more than temporary hope, based on what we all know of these elitist's history, and open policy statements.

If these illegal immigrants set up tents in your yard, and were lead to believe that they could help themselves to your fridge, your pantry, your livestock and your garden, even your gold and precious daughters; ought you to be considered racist for correcting the facts, by resisting and disallowing it to be so? Their children aren't worth more than yours, right?

Florida, California, New Mexico. Don't you think they'll want their land back, at some time?

At one time the US was more powerful than Mexico, so we took it (fuck the NAP).

As Mexico's power waxes, and U.S. power wanes, the land will be returned to its rightful owners. The "illegals" are just settling in, in advance of the official accounting.

He's the man.

How far back in history do you suggest we go

to find the "rightful owners"? The illegals are not just settling in the border states. They are being shipped all around the country. Just as the politicians redistribute our money, they are implementing their grand scheme to change congressional districts by increasing the minority census count.

It is THE story we should be focusing on, imo.

While most here are ignoring it, happy to stick to posting and watching music videos on several threads, there have been a few attempts to bring the subject to the forefront:






If you go to the 3rd and 4th pages of the Active list, you will find other posts on the subject.

The "Focus" Seems a bit "Blurred" Nowadays...

....pseudo-intellectuals posting abstract, drawn-out, boring dissertations on anarcho-capitalism and the like.

I know it's summertime....
I know we all need to relax...
Michael has tried to introduce some really good "distractions" that I really have found entertaining...."if you're not having fun..."

Perhaps the "Ark" has been infected with mediocrity.
As the populace (some) discuss entry of child-refugees, the DP is considering opening the gates again to new members.

Those yearning to awaken fully....discussions about this "refugee-border-alien-thingy" need to be in the forefront.

Factions in action

Excellent post Mark!

Is it a story? Who decides? What is the story behind the story?

I just started reading this book yesterday: The News: A User's Manual

We are never really taught how to make sense of the torrent of news we face every day, writes Alain de Botton (author of the best-selling The Architecture of Happiness), but this has a huge impact on our sense of what matters and of how we should lead our lives. In his dazzling new book, de Botton takes twenty-five archetypal news stories—including an airplane crash, a murder, a celebrity interview and a political scandal—and submits them to unusually intense analysis with a view to helping us navigate our news-soaked age. He raises such questions as Why are disaster stories often so uplifting? What makes the love lives of celebrities so interesting? Why do we enjoy watching politicians being brought down? Why are upheavals in far-off lands often so boring?

In The News: A User’s Manual, de Botton has written the ultimate guide for our frenzied era, certain to bring calm, understanding and a measure of sanity to our daily (perhaps even hourly) interactions with the news machine.

But I digress.

Conservative firebrand Drudge says yes. Liberal lapdog Huffington Post says no. Establishment lapdog Wall Street Journal says, "meh." Regime lapdog New York Times must give it a yawn and a nod as "news that is fit to print."

What say you, DP? Is it news?

Thanks Mark.

He's the man.
