Bloviating Zeppelin: To Whom Do We Bow?

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

To Whom Do We Bow?

Perhaps it should be to Mexico?

Ah yes, that would be the country that speaks out the side of its mouth -- and other less appealing orifices.


Gayle at My Republican Blog has featured two excellent recent posts regarding the immigration and border issues faced by the United States and I might suggest you start there, then come back to this post. Gayle, be prepared: after having read this post and knowing you currently have a cold, I hope your blood pressure doesn't rocket to 210/190 as mine is wont to do.

An article from indicates that, not only should we not reign in our borders to bestill the human tide of illegal immigrants from Mexico and South America (not to mention other countries as well -- were you aware?), we should embrace more immigration than we do now. Who says so -- no, wait; who demands so?

Why, Mexico does. As does Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Belize and Panama.

Aw heck, I thought the United States embraced and received direction from its Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches. How ignorant of me not to realize it's truly run by a cartel of efficient, honest, incorruptible Latin America countries, spearheaded by Mexico!

Diplomats from Mexico and Central America on Monday demanded guest worker programs and the legalization of undocumented migrants in the United States, while criticizing a U.S. proposal for tougher border enforcement.

Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez has called the measure (a U.S. bill that would make illegal entry a felony and extend border walls) which passed the U.S. House of Representatives last month but still must go before the Senate -- "stupid and underhanded," but was somewhat more restrained on Monday, saying "it's not the Mexican government's position to tell the U.S. Senate what to do."

The U.S. proposal has caused widespread resentment in Mexico, where some have accused President Vicente Fox's administration of not being assertive enough in opposing it. Fox has called the bill shameful.

Mexicans working in the United States are a huge source of revenue for Mexico, sending home more than $16 billion in remittances in 2004, Mexico's second largest source of foreign currency after oil exports according to the country's central bank.

Oh wait. I think the curtains are indeed parting. Not only should we finance Mexico due to its oil exportation, but we should additionally continue to bankroll the entire country by expanding the amounts of cash made on domestic US soil and returned to sovereign Mexican soil.

Of course! It's our responsibility to essentially provide Mexico with any funding it desires, whenever it desires! Why didn't I see this earlier?

Folks, I humbly apologize for my misunderstanding of the issue.


Oh, and that thing about Mexico speaking out the side of its mouth with regard to immigration? Well, I "heard" (you know how that goes!) about some clearly prejudiced blog-writing fat white male cruise visitor to Puerto Vallarta who asked a Mexican national about the small, shoeless women with no teeth in bright clothing selling packs of Chicklets on the sidewalk. The Mexican citizen responded: "Forget about them all. They are worthless illegal immigrants from Honduras and El Salvador who refuse to work and drain us dry. Pay them no mind and no money." Spoken in flawless English so no translation was necessary.

Thank God that story was made up -- the nerve of that Ugly American to make such a claim!

When Fox was elected, I was so happy.
I thought a corruption opponent in Mexico was a Godsend. Then he had to start running his mouth.

Funny how that can change things.

We can either open the borders, take Mexico IN as a state or we can close the border and bomb hell out of em...

We don't have a lot of other options as I see it...

I spent too many years working *south of the border*, they don't care about America or our people, all they care about is OUR money and what it can do for them...

And they don't care HOW they get it, oil, drugs, prostitutes, labor, makes them no difference, the *hefe* is always gonna get his cut...

I am pretty much a *Bush* supporter but for the life of me, I don't understand his *soft spot* for Mexico...

BWH: one thing you have to hand to Fox: he's certainly FOR Mexico -- no question on that issue. La Mordida still reigns supreme, on the other hand.

TF: ask La Raza what their goals are. You'll discover they're not far from your first sentence, and then some. They simply want most of our southern states and Fornicalia back. Slowly, surely, they may indeed achieve their aim.

BZ, this really comes to cheap labor for corporations. Until we are prepared to drop a hammer on corporate fat cats, then we will have this problem. I live in Los Angeles and 50% of the population is from south of the border. It's just the way it is.

But here is a question. Wasn't NAFTA supposed to raise the standard of living in Mexico? Why are we losing jobs to Mexico and China while at the same time taking in a record number of immigrants? I just don't get it. Maybe someone can explain that to me.

JM: I'm with you on this one as well. The problem is twofold: Dems want cheap votes. GOP won't whack businesses that hire cheap labor. Businesses need to be whacked. I was not a particular fan of NAFTA or GATT if for no other reason than our marked LACK of inspections for truck, rail and shipping traffic across the borders and ports.

I went on a Missions Trip to Mexico in 2001. I had a really good conversation with an American who had lived in Mexico for like 15 yrs. He said that they were all excited to vote out the other party and elect Fox because the Mexican government had been so corrupt for so long. And then Fox turned out to be just as corrupt as the others. If they could get some honest people to run the country they might have a better chance of making things work so they wouldn't all have to come here.

Ah yes, Ernesto Zedillo traded for VF. Initially, a good trade. But it was like San Francisco kicking out Terrell Owens and, a little later, Philadelphia picking him up and then realizing: "Uh oh. . ."

I remember hearing over an over that illegal immigrants do jobs that americans won't do. And on the other side of the same issue is that they are taking away american jobs.

(Deep breath inserted here...)

If they are truly doing jobs taht americans won't do then so be it close the borders, because I really don't care if the medians on major roads are well kept as long as my country doesn't suffer.
(And that is not a slam to mexican americans... that is just one of the jobs that don't require very much "documentation")

On the other side of the issue, if an illegal alien walked into mcdonalds and took the job that the guy begging for money at the intersection declines to apply for... who's losing out on that job?

I can do without some asthetics or raise the price of some products but I don't want my taxes going for someone who broke the law to get here, instead of the family going through the proper channels and still waiting in mexico to make a better (and legal) life for his family.

On my forum, we are always *raggin" on each other about spelling and typos... And I AM a spelling Nazi... Notorious for it... I have 2 spell checkers on most formats... LMAO..Yeah, I AM that bad about it...

And I'll tall you what else i am into other than spel chker and tht wud be houked on foniks, it werks...
