Teddy Roosevelt Had It Right

Amen to this! 99 years later.

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN 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."

Immigration Laws

  1. If you migrate to this county, you must speak the native language.
  2. You have to be a professional or an investor. No unskilled workers allowed.
  3. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, all government business will be conducted in our language.
  4. Foreigners will NOT have the right to vote, no matter how long they are here.
  5. Foreigners will NEVER be able to hold political office.
  6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs.
  7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.
  8. If foreigners do come and want to buy land, that will be okay, BUT options will be enforced. You are not allowed waterfront property. That is reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.
  9. Foreigners may not protest; no demonstrations, no waving a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. if you do, you will be sent home.
  10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail.
Harsh, you say? The above laws happen to be the immigration laws of Mexico!

M:I 3 is a great action flick

I saw Mission: Impossible 3 yesterday, and I must say, it's a great action movie.  I have no idea why there are a bunch of critics out there saying it's a bad movie, because it isn't.

M:I 3 is just like the last 2 M:I movies -- you really need to see them more than once to totally understand all the twists and turns.  After you're finished watching, you sort of understand what just happened, but the characters' motivations change so many times in the last third of the movie that it really requires a second or third viewing to totally "get it".

I think many people get caught up in Tom Cruise's wacky behavior, so they don't like his movies as a result.  Personally, I think his movies are almost always terrific, and I think he's a good actor.

If you like action movies, see M:I 3, and be sure to see it in a good theater that has a good sound system.  It rocks.

What the hell is the matter with the US government?!

The latest news about our "border patrol" really has me angry!  I don't even have words to describe the feeling of sickness I feel about our own government, which is essentially handing the keys to our country to the Mexican government.

Read this, and see if you don't agree:
