Mexico's May Day, "Nada Gringo"

In the papers today I see what could be more fuel to fire the anti illegal immigration issue. Seems Mexico City is having a "nothing Gringo" day, ie no Big Macs. Fine with me. They might be a little healthier for a day. Perhaps we here in the USA should boycott ALL Mexican restaurants on May 1. While shopping, check those labels for "hecho en Mexico". Want grapes? check where they are from. Cheap clothes? Check where they are from. Perhaps this will be a true economic battle which Mexico can't compete given the USA's voracious appetite for Mexican food.

The only true way to stem the flood of illegals (mostly Mexican-South American) will be for those countries to improve their standard of living. As long as the US turns a blind eye to illegal immigration, Mexico will be more than content to keep its people in abject poverty at home, thus essentially forcing the US to pay what Mexico can not or will not.

Why May 1 anyway? Seems a bit communist to me. Soviet communism always celebrated their 'victorious' state in May.

WMD's in our own backyard, and front yard, on freeways, at the supermarket...they're everywhere!

Just when you thought Iraq was safe and no WMD's were found, here they are in our own streets!!!!

Yes, Weapons of Musical Destruction! Those boomboxes we are mercilessly subjected to by the juvenile minds of Blingworld and Crap music. They are the true enemy within. The subjugation of what passes for music in the form of booooommmmm boxxxx muuuuuuusic. All we sentient beings hear is the dull thudding boom reverberating across the once peaceful suburbia of the American dream. But lo, modern urban terrosts have found a way to cut through the safety of suburbia by boooommmiiinnnggg their message of anti establishment through your living room wall at all hours of the day and even through the night. There is no longer and implied sanctity of night being quiet. The new boombox terrorists must be heard! We will not be let to sleep while they have angry thoughts to beam to suburbia.

Many thanks to Aunt Chrissy for the idea of WMD's

Immigration reform...Why do we immediatly think "la migra"

It seems that the looming issue of immigration reform is less the nuts and bolts of reforming America's immigration policy than the need to reform America's welfare policy. When most of our ancestors came to America there were strict requirements of having a sponsor who would vouch for the immigrant. After the great depression of the 1930's when the welfare state was born, things started to relax ending up with our present situation where we have flung the doors open to almost all with our liberal welfare state policies. There is a most favored immigrant nation status granted to Mexico while others are still required to play by the old rules. Why is it that we as a nation have coopted ourselves with Mexico? Simply put, our politicians being the greedy folks they are see a vast pool of easy votes in those south of the border ILLEGAL immigrants. Why bother with niceties as formal citizenship requirements, when politicians can make a grab for 11 MILLION illicit votes. Illicit because hose votes are not truly objective but highly subjective given the preferrential treatment given them.We get upset when politicians try to outright buy votes!!! But this is far more egregious, congress enacting legislation to sway votes!!! Why else does this issue come up now in a critical congressional election year?

Everywher else it is easy to keep illegals out. Canadians don't come here in any significant amount. Likely the percentage of Canadian immigrants is below 1%. Other continents are easier to handle. We have oceans seperating "us" from "them". But Mexico seems to enjoy an almost Orwellian sense of perverting the meaning of "illegal immigrant". Even the Mexican President, Vicente Fox condones the free passage of migrants across the US-Mexico border. He wants California back for Mexico!!! Mexico can't wrestle it back by war, so they fight back with a time tested economic strategy-drain the enemy's resources till they can't fight. Mexico has so many wishing to come to America that California's economy will sink and become poorer than Baja Mexico. We will revert to Alta Mexico. Mexico will reap the factories and infrastructure that they in 10000 years could never build.
