A Walk In The Woods, Dumb-Assed Moves–And Show Me Your Papers!

A Walk In The Woods, Dumb-Assed Moves–And Show Me Your Papers!

My dear friend, Frank, challenged several of my statements just as I was leaving for “A Walk In The Woods”. I promised that when I came back, I would respond to his remarks. So here are my thoughts.

Frank: Why is legalized Gambling a dumb-assed move, but legalized tequila not similarly dumb?

Me: Once the Pandora’s Box of addictive or highly pleasurable activities are legalized (now, or formerly outlawed as vices that damage the public and the republic) such as gambling, pornography, other recreational drugs, or prostitution they are very unlikely to be successfully prohibited again. Alcohol is a good example (prohibition and its repeal). I agree that alcohol addiction is ruinous to individuals and to our culture. That is no reason to add to it other similarly ruinous vices through legalization, taxation, and governmental encouragement of those vices. I believe the damaging effects of these vices on individuals and culture are synergistic…that is..1 dumb move, plus 1 dumb move, plus 1 dumb move will equal the total magnitude of bad dumb-assed moves and outcomes of maybe 5 or 7. These are self-destructive cultural design mistakes.

Frank: I don’t believe that the Federal Government has done anything about toys in Happy Meals, you might be thinking about Santa Clara county in California.

Me: I am sorry, you are right. My mistake. This was not a Federal initiative, as I thought it was. However, governmental regulation of business to this level of triviality is a sample of what is now growing in our socioculture and it is antithetical to individual freedom and liberty and tp success in the business sector. Do you find it appropriate that the government (at any level) would legalize and therefore encourage the traditional vices discussed above but then outlaw a 5 cent toy in a Happy Meal? Should we move on to Cracker Jacks? What about trinkets in our cereal boxes? Perhaps you think that coupons in the Sunday newspaper should also go.

We could open a new governmental agency to monitor and to control these outrageous assaults on the health and welfare of our poor exploited citizens. That would be in keeping with the spirit of these times.

Frank: What is courageous about requiring everyone to carry their papers, and show them when asked? Isn’t that the kind of Big Government intrusion into our lives that you’re typically against? Will you be carrying your proof of citizenship with you in Michigan in case an officer suspects your right to be in the country? If you’re unwilling to do so…why is Arizona courageous?

Me: In my view it is courageous for a state to move against the will of the Federal Government, by enacting and enforcing just laws that mirror the Federal laws—that the Feds are refusing to enforce. To do so is to risk retribution from an expanding and increasingly draconian Central Government. In my view, it is a God-Given right of individuals and states to defend themselves from destruction. From what I can see, this is exactly what Arizona is doing. Moreover, the majority of US citizens support Arizona’s right to do so.

It is perfectly legal to stop, detain, question, and establish the identity of anyone in the US who is suspected of breaking the law. That is what is proposed to be done in Arizona, and soon other states,…and I know you know it.

If I were going into Canada my passport would have been demanded and I would have been happy to show it. Same if I were going into Mexico, which I did recently. The Mexicans not only checked my papers, they carried automatic weapons as they did. While in the U.P of Michigan I had to show my papers (identification to buy gas, food and other products with a credit card and to cash a check. I was not harmed or incensed by any of it. If I was pulled over for speeding I would expect and be happy to comply with the officers request (really a demand) for my papers (licence and car insurance). None of this is a big deal to me.

Under conditions of war and/or invasion, both of which I believe are ongoing, I am happy to show my papers upon demand at any time–and so should be any patriotic citizen.

Thanks Frank,

I received an Email from a friend, comparing what illegal aliens get when they cross the borders of some countries and what they get when they cross America’s borders. It is circulating the internet like so much stuff is nowadays. Of course, some of the stuff floating around is very good and some is junk.

I have taken the time to verify the items that this Email alleged are  available to illegal aliens who cross America’s boarders and therefore I think it is something that you should be aware of when you go to the ballot box.

Regarding what happens to illegal aliens when they cross into N. Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, China, Venezuela, Cuba, Russia, etc., I have not taken the time to validate the precise consequences listed below. So, I do not know if Illegal aliens are shot, kept for 12 yrs. (Or 2,4,6,8,10 yr.), never heard from again, or whatever. But I don’t think that the details matter.

What matters is that there is “hell to pay” and, over the years, my awareness of news reports (both liberal and conservative) has generally informed me of this fact. This general knowledge is all that is needed to present the following stark contrast:

■ If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years
 hard labor.

■ If you cross the Iranian border illegally, you are detained
■ If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot.

■ If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally, you will be

■ If you cross the Chinese border illegally, you may never be
heard from again.

■ If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally, you will be
branded a spy and your fate will be sealed.

■ If you cross the Cuban border illegally, you will be thrown
into political prison to rot.

If you cross America’s border illegally, you can get:

● A job
● A drivers license
● A social security card
● Welfare
● Food stamps
● Credit cards
● Subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house
● Free education
● Free health care
● A lobbyist in Washington
● And in many instances you can vote

I will bet that if we randomly ask our voting age youth on the street, as might the comedian Jay Leno, “how these gifts to illegal aliens are payed for” —-many will answer, “with money from the Government”.

Such an answer was once an amusing sign of ignorance. This answer is now especially terrifying because it is a continued show of ignorance in a time of  unimaginable national financial crisis. This answer is even more fearful because it used to be a truism that the government did not have any money..”the money” was extracted by the government from our working citizens.

Now the U.S. Government not only takes all it can from working citizens, but it also borrows more than it can pay back from our enemies.  Also, if it hasn’t already done so, it may simply begin to print more money for itself.

Then it can give more money to the Illegal Aliens and their children; and anyone else who will vote to keep them in power!

If we run our families this way,  they will fail.
If we run our socioculture this way, it will fail.
