…”Illegal Immigrants are Invading our Country”…

I am confused about one of the most important issues that’s facin’ our Country today. I really can’t grasp the reactions of people concernin’ this most important issue…Our Southern Border…

{{{{{ BORDER ! }}}}}…Definition: “a line separating two political or geographical areas, especially countries”.

A single word. {{{{{ BORDER ! }}}}} that has so many divided against one another. We use, mostly, an open Border around our Country. In some areas we have NO structure at all to control entry. So people just come & go as they choose. Some are Desirable & many are Undesirables. But we just can’t seem to control’em. Some areas have natural barriers such as Rivers. At times those may just slow those entries down but NOT control’em. Some areas have, maybe, just a Barbed Wire Fence. Those have more of a tendency to keep some wildlife or domesticated animals contained. But people climb over or under’em or just cut them down & enter as they please. In recent years we have gone so far as to put up larger barriers, in selected areas, that slowed the flow until people decided to Climb them. Why our Government hasn’t {{{{{ ELECTRIFIED ! }}}}} them still amazes me. We have even tried to re-enforce our Southern Border with Manpower, our Border Patrol personnel, limited in scope as to what they can do, to prevent Illegal entry & Electronic Surveillance to assist, that gets damaged or taken down by Undesirables.

As I think about this I wonder why people are so opposed to “A Border Wall”. Think about this for a moment. Now, direct your thoughts to say “YOUR HOME”! Whether you live in a House, an Apartment, a Trailer, a Tent, a Make-Shift Lean To, a Yurt, a Cave, a Tree House, or any other abode YOU call HOME. Don’t YOU, in a manner of speakin’, consider “the outer barriers” of your abode as “A Border”? Do you not decide who does or does not cross that Barrier/Border & enter into your protected space? Why?… Do you have Locks on your entrances? Do you use them? Why?… I would think to keep unwanted people out & to protect what you perceive to be yours! Do you have a fence around your abode, yard, farm, or acreage with gates at certain locations to control entry? If not, do you ever wish you did? Why?… Is it/Would it be to keep protected what you happen to have within it or to keep others from enterin’ your space & take or abuse what is yours? Do you feel the urge to protect yourself, your family, or your animals? Why?…Maybe because those that pass through your property just abuse it & move on. Maybe they are movin’ Illegal substances across you property & bringin’ with them undesirables, undocumented (un-vetted) Illegals not to mention all of the illness & diseases they bring with them. Then possibly other undesirables want to engage them for those Illegal substances or even Human Traffickin’. If you had exhausted many/all other options would you not choose a taller Border device/Border Wall to keep you & yours safe? Yet maintain an area for entrance & exit to control those who do pass through your property…Now think of it on a much larger scale. Do we not need to do the same for our Country? I am one of those that think we do. Illegal Immigrants are Invading our Country unchecked!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Now, don’t you feel better just knowin’ “…

On this fine Sunday afternoon I found myself relaxin’ & enjoyin’ myself a few {{{{{ COLD BEERS ! }}}}} down in “The Cave”. TV got somewhat borin’ & my mind started wanderin’, as it has a tendency to do. Ohh but the places it takes me when it does. Today’s wanderin’ took me back to my raisin’ years. We really should show a little more appreciation for those that raised us & the fact that we survived it, what ever & where ever IT was.

Aahhh…Mother (I can’t say & Father, because mine passed when I was less than two (2) years old, but @ age 11 I gained a Stepfather). I guess I’ll just say Parents! I like to think, with lovin’ memories of course, that not only ME but that 99.99% of you remember how they (our Parents) expressed their love & understandin’ to us thru all those little quips, phrases, promises, threats, & {{{{{ Srceamin’ Warnin’s }}}}} they used to express themselves to us durin’ our formative years. In these different homes & different families you might have heard any number of the different phrases. I mean where, who, what would you/we be without them? We learned & we learned they meant what they said more times than not…RIGHT? Take a moment & remanence with me, through our minds eyes & ears, for a few moments…

The Earliest Recollections:
I love, love, love you!…I love you…Yeah, I love you but you’re pushin’ it!…
No no…NO NO!…I said “NO NO Damn-it”!
Don’t do that…”No, don’t do that” I said…Damn-it, I won’t tell you again!…
I’ll spank your hand…I’ll spank your bottom…I’ll beat The Tar out of you!…(I never understood “The Tar”?)

The Intermediate Years:
Now, eat your supper…You’ll eat what I put on you’re plate…You’d best choke that stuff down, you hear me!…
Use your manners…I taught you manners for a reason…Did I waste my damn time on You!…
You know I love you & this is goin’ to hurt me more than it will you… No, I don’t care, you’re gonna get a whoppin’, now drop your pants!…All your Promises/Lies ain’t changin’ a damn thing you’re still gettin’ a Ass-Whoppin’!
Excuse me but someone else is speakin’…Hey, I’d like to hear what they are tryin’ to say…Shut-up Damn-it, I want to hear’em!…
Use your napkin please…Clean your mouth off & don’t use your sleeve again!…Are you waitin’ on the Damn Dog to lick your face!…
Do you want a spankin’…I’ll whoop your butt…I’m gonna beat the hell out of you! (hum-m-m here’s another one “
beat the hell out of you!)…

The High School Years:
Think about what you’re doin’/sayin’…Do you realize WHAT you just did/said?…You don’t know what the hell you’re doin’/sayin’ do you?…
You be Home by 10:00 p.m…I don’t care how late they are allowed to stay out…You really DON”T want ME comin’ over THERE to drag your ass home, You Hear Me!…
That looks & fits very nice…I think that’s just a little too tight, small, & revealin’, go your change cloths…Oh Hell No! Ain’t NO child of mine goin’ out lookin’ like THAT!…
You don’t have any clean cloths?…Do you know where the dirty cloths go?…Wash’em your own damn self!…
You have a good head on your shoulders…You’re not as smart as you think you are…Ahh-hahaha, You Dumb Ass!…

Cut the grass?…What, you couldn’t crank the lawn mower? I don’t care if you have to use your teeth, get it done!…
It’s a good starter car…You want a New Car? Get You a Job!…You’ll drive what the hell I buy or you can WALK!…
Oh, that’s not what you want?…So, you’re tellin’ me you don’t like it?…I ain’t gittin’ a damn thing for you anyway!…
We have rules in this house…So, YOU don’t think My/Our RULES apply to YOU?…Don’t let that Door hit you in The Ass on the way out & the locks WILL be changed!…
I’m sure there were/are many, many, many others that were/are favorites around your house too. Now, don’t you feel better just knowin’ you weren’t/ain’t the only one who has lived/is livin’ through it…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Funny isn’t it!”…

Catchin’ up on the News this mornin’ I just had to sit here & both laugh & be amazed. For some strange reason I see humor in the Negatives bein’ reported. Take for instance…

The DemocRATS are abandoning “Ole Harvey” Weinstein like RATS abandon a SINKING SHIP! How long can they tread water? I wonder who will be their next victim? You know, the one that comes floatin’ by, they climb aboard, & they sink their fangs & claws into. To replace “Ole Harvey” that is. Trust me, they’re already on the hunt for their next victim, DONOR! It’s just in their nature. They, The DemocRATS & Hollywood Elites, all knew what “Ole Harvey” was doin’. They just didn’t care! In their worlds it’s just standard operating procedure (SOP). As long as the Money & Favors flowed in their direction they all just ignored it. Oh, but now that “he settled sexual harassment lawsuits with at least eight women” (via the NYT) they, The DemocRATS & Hollywood Elites, just can’t seem to “Sling the $#!+” off of their hands fast enough. I wonder if Hillary will give back the, reportedly, $45,000.00 “Ole Harvey” donated to her “Losin’ Presidential Campaign”? Funny isn’t it!…..BG>

…”Let that sink in”…

Folks THIS is (see the quote below) truly a HORRIBLE thought! I saw this on someone else’s FB post this mornin’. I read it twice & really had to think it thru. And then it dawned on me IT’S TRUE! IT’S SCAREY! The Liberalism/Socialism that is bein’ taught to the youth of this country, K-5 thru College, has already started turnin’ the direction of this Great Nation. It didn’t start yesterday. It has been happenin’ for years, slowly, deliberately. A slight alterin’ of facts here & a deletion of facts there. A effective change in curriculum. “The Dumbin’ Down Of America”! Not only are they changin’ the direction of our country but they are Erasin’ the History, selectively, as they go. Many of YOU question & deny the term “GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS”. Really? I mean {{{ REALLY ! }}}.

“A Generation taught to hate the country will refuse to defend it as well. Let that sink in”…Author Unknown

It truly is {{{{{ SCARY ! }}}}}. God Bless America…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

 

…” it’s goin’ to get tense”…

My Bride & I got home about an hour ago. We’ve been up in Ohio checkin’ on her, 89 yr old, Mom who lives by herself. Her Husband passed in 2008. It’s “THAT TIME” in life where all of our parents, well those of you who are lucky enough to still have’em, need your help. Too many of us have been thru this & many others are currently dealin’ with it, Our Parents needs! It ain’t fun, but it is somethin’, I FEEL, we all owe them. So now family discussions need to escalate & Mom’s 2 Daughters have decisions that Have to be made. Hopefully Mom will understand the Love & Dedication that is goin’ into what ever the results are that come from this process. Mom has one daughter, & her family, that live in Texas. Then there is My Bride & I here in “The Big Pell”.  There is NO Family in Ohio for her to depend on. She does have one 92 yr old sister that lives in North Carolina, who is currently experiencin’ health issues of her own, &  is bein’ assisted  by her family there. Please keep us in you thoughts as we get deeper into this process as the days, weeks, & months go by. I’m sure it’s goin’ to get tense within the family. God Bless Mom, & God be with the Family as we move forward…..BG>  

…”ME?…HELL NO!…I’ll NEVER FORGET!”…

Tomorrow is “Patriot Day, Rememberin’ 9-11”!

I can’t believe IT HAS BEEN SIXTEEN (16) YEARS since we, The United States of America, were {{{{{ ATTACKED ! }}}}}. I’ll never forget. I was sittin’ in my office, in Oxford, AL. There was a TV on, in the temporary office (the Truck Drivers Lounge) I was in, as our buildin’ was under goin’ an addition at the time. Then there it was, bein’ reported on Live TV, just a few minutes after the First (1st) Hi-Jacked Air Craft Struck! At first Reporters were speculatin’ if it was a flight off course, an accidental crash, just sheer speculation as Reporters do just to be the first (1st) to get a Report/a SCOOP! out. As the moments passed by the Second (2nd) Hi-Jacked Air Craft came into the picture. It was makin’ a wide, low altitude sweepin’ turn, as it struck it’s target on that day, September 11, 2001. Now commonly referred to as “9-11”. There were Four (4) Civilian Commercial Aircraft, HI-JACKED, in order to accomplish their goals. The First (1st) Strike, Hi-Jacked Aircraft American Air Lines Flt #11, was flown into the North Tower of The World Trade Center (The Twin Towers). Then, just a short time later, The Second (2nd) Strike,Hi-Jacked United Airlines Flt #175, was flown into the South Tower of The World Trade Center.  In, what seemed like for ever, actually just a short time, the Twin Towers collapsed to the ground into a huge pile of rubble. A Third (3rd) Aircraft, Hi-Jack American Air Lines Flt #77 was flown into “The Pentagon”, Our Military Head Quarters, at about ground level. The first three Hi-Jacked aircraft had HIT Their Targets! The Fourth (4th) strike, Hi-Jacked United Airlines Flt #93, crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pa. The Passengers, NO THE HEROES, on board had begun to received information, from varied sources, about the first three (3) Hi-Jacked Aircraft & what had happened. They quickly realized what was happenin’ to them & decided to take actions to keep these Islamist Terrorist from hittin’ THEIR intended target, now believed to be The Capital Building in Washington, D.C. These Brave Americans, These HEROES, rebelled against the hijackers on board, & eventually caused the aircraft to crash into the ground, a seemingly remote field, killin’ everyone on board. God Bless These Heroes, These Patriots, & their families. {{{{{ SALUTE ! }}}}}…May they forever “Rest In Peace”! On “9-11” a total of 2,997 People were killed & over 6000 injured. IT WAS A PLANNED ATTACK BY A GROUP OF 19 ISLAMIC TERRORIST! These TERRORISTS were eventually linked to Osama bin Laden, leader of the Muslim Terrorist Group Al-Qaeda. ME?…HELL NO!… I’ll NEVER FORGET!…”Hold,em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Yep,The Eyes tell it all”…

Ya know, life deals us all those “FUNNY moments” we have NO control over. The next time you’re among a group of people notice their faces. Their eyes especially! The Eyes tell it all. Ya have the stare, the cuttin’ side to side, the slight squint, the bulge, the slow blink, the closin’ with that long pause, & on & on & on. You know what I mean. Now the question is “who was it” that committed what ever the action was? These are tale tale signs that the one you’re lookin’ at just reacted to somethin’ significant!  Yeah, you know I mean! Then it’s the sudden shiftin’ of bodies, as everyone, in close proximity, reacts to what you too have noticed. The wrinklin’ of noses, the step backs from someone, then the quick exit of The One! Yeah, you picked’em out first! Then, after those few uneasy moments pass, you walk by The One, tap’em on the shoulder, & quietly whisper “Good One”! Now there are only two possible responses that individual can have. They turn & wonder “what are you talkin’ about”?, as an act of denial. Or They know that You know that They are “The One” that just FARTED! Yep, “The Eyes tell it all”…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
