My Soapbox...

Well, the web address of this blog says it all…”Philips Soapbox”…and that is exactly what I’ll be doing today- climbing atop my soapbox and letting loose with a rant…it’s been a while. I had an older blog that is now gone the way of the dinosaur, and it was pretty much all rants, as opposed to this blog, which is pretty much a mixture of a lot of stuff. It’s not that I haven’t had things to rant about, it’s just that my wife pointed out to me, that my blog always seemed to be negative and I needed to try to be more positive about things, and she was right, so I scrapped the old “negativity” blog and started this one. Oh, I’ve had things to rant about lately, especially with the “obamesssiah” marring up the White House beyond recognition, I have just chosen to “avoid” those topics, and focus on more positive things. However, I feel that at this point in time, I need to rant. I won’t make a huge habit of it, but I feel this is something that requires the undivided attention of the American public. With that said, I’ll begin…

On March 4, the LA Times broke a story about Obama trying to bring in new immigration reform. Rather than basically re-write the entire article, I’ll give it to you in short form. The basis of the bill, would include a path toward citizenship for the more than 15 million people living in the States illegally. “Undocumented (see illegal scum) workers” would have to “register”, pay taxes and pay a “penalty” for violating the law. Failure to do this MIGHT result in deportation. In other words, Obama wants to grant citizenship to the almost 15 million illegal aliens in the U.S. Then, if they don’t “register” or “pay taxes” then they MIGHT…get deported, but it’s not a sure thing. If this doesn’t make your blood boil, I’m not sure what will. These people will not even have to take part in the normal citizenship requirements, which is a travesty.

In order to be a “legal” citizen by the actual law, you have to meet certain requirements, hardly any of which ANY illegal can meet. You have to be fingerprinted, photographed and interviewed. You have to be able to read, write and speak English and have a good knowledge and understanding of United States history and government. You are tested on up to 10 civic questions (in English) and have to have a passing grade. You have to me of good moral character, and if you are found to be lying during your interview, you can be turned down for not having good moral character. You have to agree with the principles of the Constitution and have a favorable view of America and you must be willing to defend the United States and our Constitution. Lastly, you have to complete an oath of allegiance to the United States. Pretty much each and every one of these requirements would be impossible for any illegal to meet (which is why I’m sure the president is not making them complete them). Problem is, there are thousands who are IN LINE to become U.S. citizens legally, by doing it the right way-by the law. To pass this legislation, would be to reward those who have broken the law, and in turn, punish those who are doing it the right way. This would be wrong on so many levels. These are crooks, criminals and in many cases, the lowlife scum of the earth. If Obama goes through with this, it would only worsen the rape of our borders, our language and our culture. There is already an all out assault on our country, and this would only worsen things, and cement Obama in history as one of the greatest detriments to America and all she stands for.

Now, don’t get me wrong…I’m all for immigration, as long as it’s done the correct way. After all, we are a nation of immigrants. It’s what started this country, and it’s what makes this country great. It’s what makes America the “land of opportunity.” However, I have no room or time whatsoever for illegals. They are lowlife scum and forgive my frankness, but they are raping our society as we know it. Want proof? Check these statistics out…if they don’t make your blood boil, nothing will.*Three quarters of the cocaine and one half of all the heroin consumed in America enter the country across the U.S., Mexico border*Illegal Aliens (Mexicans) are killing our economy. In 2003 alone (and trust me, it’s gotten worse since then), they sent over 13 Billion dollars back into Mexico making it the 3rd largest source of revenue in the Mexican economy trailing only oil and manufacturing. Those numbers have since risen.*Supplying medical aid to illegals in the border states (TX, AZ, NM) are costing the hospitals in those areas over 200 million dollars a year. Those hospitals that can pay, pay, but those hospitals that can't are forced to close their doors. That equates to less hospitals for those actual citizens who are in need. *According to the U.S. Border Patrol, of the 37,000 captured illegal aliens in the Tucson Arizona sector, 7,500 were not even from Mexico, but from terrorist sponsoring countries. Stats also say that out of every 5 illegals, only one is caught, leaving the other 4 to permeate into the country. *According to "TIME" magazine, 190,000 illegal aliens from countries other than Mexico have melted into the population. This was only in the first 9 months of 2004. More have seeped in now. They come from countries like El Salvador, Nicaragua, Russia, China, Egypt, Iran and Iraq.*4 out of every 10 prisoners in our prisons are illegal aliens. This cost taxpayers in excess of 2.1 billion dollars a year. *As of 1996, it cost about 8 Billion dollars a year just to provide a primary education for illegal aliens at the federal, state and local levels. (Who pays this bill? The Mexican government? Sorry Senor, you and I do.)*Each year, 65,000 undocumented (i.e. illegal aliens) students graduate from our high schools. (YOU pay for their education)*There are between 15 and 20 Million illegal aliens already living inside the U.S.*Over 3 million illegal aliens cross into America a year. At 3 million per year, you can see how our culture is becoming affected. (Also if 3 million illegal aliens can cross into our country untouched, is it so hard to believe that drug traffickers and terrorists could do the same thing?)*The following is what illegal aliens and their children are costing American taxpayers on an annual basis, just at the federal level: -2.1 Billion to lock up illegals in our prisons -2.5 Billion in Medicare -2.2 Billion in uninsured medical costs -1.4 Billion in federal aid to schools -1.9 Billion in food stamps, WIC and free school lunches--Now after reading that, the next time you get paid, take a long hard look at your paycheck. Focus on the part that says "Federal Income Tax Withheld" (That’s the money that you earn but don't get to keep). Then remember this: A portion of the cash the government has taken from your wallet is paying for this 10 Billion dollar per year handout. Throw this on top of the fact that just a few years ago, the Mexican Congress approved a bill (This happened on 4/28/06) decriminalizing (legalizing) the possession of small amounts of marijuana. (for personal use). Friends, this has to stop. This only the tip of the iceberg. What’s bad is that while there are plenty of Americans incensed about this, not enough of them are being vocal! Not long ago, there was a huge outcry over illegal immigration, that has since died down. Why? Now, here we are at a point, where everyone has forgotten about it, and it’s made of a perfect opportunity for Obama and his pack of rats to push through a piece of legislation that would further rape our borders, language and culture. It’s a slight of hand move…all the talk is on the healthcare crisis, and this will (hopefully not) slide by without much notice. Hopefully some of the above can help remedy that and hopefully, some people will start to take notice and stop this before it gets any further. I've said this to people before and I'll say it again- people (you included) need to get off the couch every once and a while and do something. Let the leaders of this country know that you aren't going to take this crap anymore! They need to hear voices. To many people are just sitting back without a care in the world and what’s worse, is that haven’t a clue. This affects ALL of us. Not just those who pay attention. This will affect not only you, but it will affect the America you’re kids grow up in. What kind of country do we want pass on to our children? One that embraces this madness? One that teaches English as a second language? If we don't do something soon, Americans will be a minority in this country and the land will be overrun with Mexicans. It's time to put our foot down and stomp this problem out.

What America needs to do, is demand that Obama and his socialist cronies stand up for our country rather than degrade it and apologize for it. I believe immigration will be one of the defining issues of our time. It’s time America demanded REAL national security from the administration. First and foremost, that means we need to CLOSE OUR BORDERS. We also need to protect our language. That means ENGLISH. For those of you that haven't heard, not long ago, they recorded a Spanish version of our national anthem. ANSWER ME THIS: Do Americans still know what flag they live under?? The UN flag? The rainbow flag? The Mexican flag? The red or the blue flag? Each of those flags I just mentioned are now equally displayed in too many places across our great country. What nation can even think about holding together and staying united when our voting ballots are printed in so many different languages. (That’s it again if you thought you didn't see what you really did.) “United we stand” can’t be accomplished if we can’t even understand each other.

It's high time all you people out there get off your duffs and start realizing the direction we as a country are heading. Hec, all you have to do to get an idea or example is to pick up the phone and dial any business, go to any local store, or bank or ATM or what have you. You will find the same common denominator at all those places. "Press 1 for English, press 2 for Spanish." What?? Where does it end? Now all the signs in all of our stores have messages in Spanish in addition to having them in English. Turn on your TV set. What do you see on the news? (No, I'm not talking about Smallville, or American Idol, or whatever other lame source of entertainment you may watch...I'm talking about the actual news. The what’s what of what is going on in our great America.) What do you see? Mexicans. Illegal ones, waving there Mexican flag in our streets and in our cities claiming that they are America and they have rights too. What? Rights? Since when pray tell did anyone give them rights? OF course, that is what Obama is trying to do now. Excuse my French, but HELL NO. They are criminals. They don't even have a right to be in this country. If they want to be "American" then they need to start waving the American flag. By the way, for all you who don't know, the national language in this Country is ENGLISH. Not Spanish. Not Indian. Not Arabic. ENGLISH. English is the language that America does business by. It’s the language we live by. If these parasites are going to come into our country, the least they could do is respect the culture of our nation. But they don't. They want to turn it into "North Mexico...the land formerly known as America." That’s not all, if things keep going the way they are, it just may happen, and Obama isn’t helping with this free for all legislation. What do you think will happen, once they hear that America is about to legalize all the illegals? Let me tell you what will happen…there will be an influx of illegal immigrants upon this country, unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Everyone will want their piece of the pie. Thank the Liberals on the left for that. Their "tolerance" is sickening. They like to scream about how everyone has rights. No they don't. If you are here legally, and you are an AMERICAN citizen, then we will talk about rights. But until then, these dirty, filthy, parasites have nothing but the right to be boxed up and sent back to their cess pool of a country. If they want to be here, fine, but there is a right way to go about it. Did you hear that OBAMA…a RIGHT WAY. Learn the language, come here legally, and do it the right way…OR GET OUT.

Folks, it's just going to get worse and worse unless something is done about it. Did you know that every day, during the school year, hundreds of thousand Mexican children cross the borders illegally to go to school in the US? Border control agents can't do anything about it because they are not "allowed" to detain children. Your tax dollars (and mine) are paying for these kids to walk across the border get an education, and then walk back across into Mexico after the school day is over. That isn’t the whole of it though. Did you know that if a Mexican gets hurt trying to cross the border illegally, our hospitals are required to treat them for no charge. This nonsense costs our hospitals in the border states of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas over 2.2 billion dollars a year. The government doesn't pay for it. The hospitals have to swallow the cost. At what cost? It's gotten so bad that hospitals in those states are now having to close down because they do not have enough money to operate. All the money they have is going toward the 2.2 billion dollar bill that the Mexicans are racking up. I bet you didn't have a clue that Mexican AMBULANCES are actually bringing sick and injured Mexicans across the borders to our hospitals for care. Illegally. Again, hospitals are eating the costs and to top that off, the E.R.'s in those hospitals are having to turn away American citizens who need care and help because if they turn away the Mexicans, get this, the Mexican government and the illegal aliens can actually sue the hospital. Yea, that’s right. They win too. Check it out. An illegal Mexican was injured while trying to cross the border and when he was denied medical help, he sued the Arizona Government and won 1.2 million dollars. If that doesn't make you sick, something’s wrong with you. Or you are a liberal, same difference.
Friends, it's time for this to come to an end. Let’s make some noise about this. Get on the net. Write your senator or congressman. Heck, write the POTUS. While these sludge bags are waving their Mexican flags in our streets, we are sitting at home doing what? Watching American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, 24? How bout we quit sitting on our lazy butts and let’s get up and make a difference. I don't know about you, but I don't want my kids to grow up in an America that speaks Spanish or one that teaches in schools that sodomy is the "norm." Nor do I want them growing up in schools that make take God out of the pledge of allegiance or require them to become "Muslim" for 3 weeks...that’s a whole other blog in and of itself. Mark my words, it will happen. Unless we start a revolution…are you with me?
