Leave a comment Monday

It is “Leave a Comment Monday”. The day in which I put aside what little dignity I have left as an old man and beg for comments. Why ? Because I am a comment addict. I have to have at least one good comment day to have a good week.
Last week I decided that just begging wasn’t enough so I have added a “Commentable” . This is a section with something for you to comment on.
Today’s “ Commentable”:
I have some friends who wan t to send all illegal aliens back to Mexico ( even those that are from other countries). One of the things that really disturbs them in the protest rallies where people protest being sent back while waving the Mexican Flag. They say it looks like a conquering army and we lost. So I am saying that I think they should go ahead and protest but ditch the Mexican flag. What do you think? Please comment but don’t swear.
That’s today’s . Now I wait your comments.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and Last Lutheran has a mystery.– Yesterday Last Lutheran voted to call Pastor Castle and issued her an official call. The mystery concerns the vote. There were one hundred and eleven ballots distributed. The final results showed ninety nine in favor, ten against, and one confused but this only gives 110 ballots. What happened to the other ballot? Was somebody so hungry they ate it? Did somebody take it home to think about it. Did somebody take it home as a souvenir of the vote that would give Last Lutheran a lady Pastor? Is TommyUK in some way involved?( They always ask that?) Did our friendly local poltergeist wisk it away? One may never know. The one thing they know for sure is that the count was right. After they realized they were a ballot short they went back and counted again. The ballot box had ninety nine yes votes, ten no votes, one confused vote, and a bubble gum wrapper ( not counted as a vote).
The Liar’s Club President, Buddy East reminded everybody, this morning, at the regular meeting that the big canasta tournament is next Saturday. It will be held in the fellowship hall of Last Lutheran. They have enough card tables for thirty couples and expect the registration will be full by Wednesday.
This year gold edged canasta decks with the tournament date and Liar’s Club on the front will be given to each couple participating. The registration fee is fifteen dollars. The winning couple will receive the usual T-shirts and a beautiful gold trophy ( well gold looking at least).

Well, one might conclude that Tommy voted with a bubble gum wrapper. Tho I think that confronting him and seeing if he smiles is a better answer.

Imagine that someone will claim they were disenfranchised if they dont find that ballot.

Hmmmm....I feel they should come into the country legally and learn to speak English rather than us catering to them. Why come here if they are going to complain....if they do not like it here, they are FREE TO LEAVE!

Welcome to America.....if you come legally. Otherwise, go home. Oh, and I am willing to learn Spanish to communicate better with you, but you need to learn to speak English to communicate better with me.

Dr. John, we have the same problem in Canada as well, illegal aliens. I don't think they should be allowed to jump the queue. Illegal aliens should come here legally.

ET, phone home.

The news reports on the weekend featured the 60th anniversary of the UFO Landing in Roswell, New Mexico. Do you think these "Aliens" landed in "New" Mexico on purpose?

Tough commentary. If one wants to live and work here in the USA legally they should display allegiance and respect for our laws.

It's one thing to honor or have pride in your heritage. Such as my English roots, and Dr. John's beloved Finland. To have a flag or coat of arms to show off heritage is pretty cool.

However, to practice a right of a US citizen in this case, the right to protest against our Government and laws and to do so waving a flag from another country? It's just wrong. It shows they are still in the mindset of being allegiant to Mexico.

My opinion is biased by my french mother. She came to this country because she couldn't make it in hers, she did it legally and with respect. She told me the day she earned her American citizenship was the happiest day of her life, bar none. If you want the benefits of our country, pay the price

I think if we just enforce the laws that we have in place we will see some improvement with the problems we have now. People can come from far and wide, but do it legally. I think it is insulting for them to protest waving their own flag. Those people should be sent back for sure.

PRIDE IN ONE'S ORIGINS IS ONE THING (Think of the Finns, Irish, Polish, etc in the U.P.) ... BUT ... "Illegal" is "Illegal" ... They should at least try to become citizens of THIS country.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT ... the way the world conflicts are lining up ... & the world has become "smaller" ... do you think that we should think of ourselves as NORTH AMERICA ... such as EUROPE?
Glad that you are still reporting the news from Pigeon Falls.

I have a great deal of trouble commenting on the issue of immigration. I have to be very careful with my blood pressure and this is one that will immediately raise it. Especially, when it comes to raising a Mexican flag in the United States. So, I am with you, protest, but ditch the Mexican flag, or go back to Mexico and raise it all you want.

I think those Americans who struggle with holding our ground on this topic have a misplaced guilt complex. I heard a friend say, "Well, after all, we did take Texas from them so we should let them live here."
As if a 175-year-old war must still be settled, and as if Spain had not done the same thing in Mexico prior to that war. If we begin ignoring reasonable rules because someone's ancestors were wronged 200 or more years ago, there will be no end to various "entitlement mentalities" that will lead to chaos in the present and not change a thing about what happened 200 years ago.

In Europe (and every other continent)there are dozens of countries sharing borders and being very fussy about aliens and citizenship. Only in the U.S. "melting pot" culture do some call it bigotry to enforce the rules that made that "melting pot" manageable since it started simmering.
There is a difference between what our attitude toward our fellow man should be (e.g. caring for person in need in the Good Samaritin sense ) and what national imigration policy should be.

If a person comes to America from another country, do they have to become an American to stay? If this were to work in reverse, could we send you back Madonna?
