America in all its Glory

Mabry Mill, Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia

What a gorgeous shot of Mabry Mill in the Blue Ridge Mountains (Virginia). Such a peaceful, serene setting.

Sitting on the edge of the water. Taking a worm and baiting it on the hook of a line that is attached to a long, thin tree branch. Gently "cast" the line into the water. Now to sit quietly, watching the dragonflies skip across the surface of the calm water. Listening to the frogs calling to one another. All the thoughts of your daily life are no longer with you - all you are thinking about at this moment is the beauty of the trees, where they simply meld into the banks of the water.

Who cares if you ever get a nibble on your line. Just to enjoy this moment that you will never live again. That is life!

Every crime committed by an illegal immigrant should never have happened!!!

Read my posting under Illegal Immigrants.

A quote from President Theodore Roosevelt addressed on immigration in 1907:

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty, and that is a loyalty to the American people."

The laws are meant for everyone

I am sure you can tell from my postings how I feel about the illegals. I found this comment on a blog that was quite heated - comments between hispanics and whites.
All you Mexicans need to know your role in society. Now consuela go clean my room!
That comment made my blood boil. This is NOT how I feel about illegals or hispanics. And I am sure the illegals think that this is the attitude of all people who feel that they need to go back home and enter this country legally. That is so NOT the way we all feel.

My feeling is simple - everyone should obey all the laws of the land. And the Land should enforce all the laws in place.

Here in Southern California we have faced many situations that other parts of the country know nothing about.

In March of 2006, the hispanics held a "Day Without Illegals" protest. In addition to kids ditching school (they did show up, but at a designated time, they walked off campus), they took their protest walk to the freeways. There was no action taken against any of the people that did this.

But the most appalling of all was what took place at Montebello High School. I will let the photos speak for themselves.
