America in all its Glory
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 gall of Illegal Immigrants and Hispanics!!!
I came across this photo and was absolutely aghast!
Several years back when the illegals began flooding across our borders, my thought was that Mexico is trying to take back California, Texas, New Mexico and Nevada by inundating the states with their people. The intent is to eventually gain enough "manpower" to have a voice.
Unfortunately, that very thing has occurred. And what is our Government doing about this soon to be takeover? Very little. Here in California, our Governor is pandering to them. So many of the city officials are of Hispanic blood. They are behind the so called "rights" of these individuals. The only thing that is going on is the "token" raid and deportation of illegals by ICE.
ICE is fully aware of the businesses that have illegal immigrants in their hire. What is taking them so long to raid the businesses? And what is their priority in selecting those that they have raided and plan to raid next?
So many unanswered questions!
