Illegal Immigration and the “Better Life” Argument

I’m just going to put this out there for all the proponents of Illegal Immigration and explain the reality of people coming into America illegally. These people that keep trying to push illegal immigration being good for America. As far as I am concerned, nothing could be further from the truth.

illegalaliensHere in Los Angeles, it has affected our lives exponentially for over 30 years. You can’t keep anything outside of your house. Not even a garden hose because we have these roving bands of What I Call “Land Pirates” that come into your neighborhood under the premise of going through your garbage and collecting the recyclables. What they’re actually doing is STEALING the recyclables from your city issued recycling can (thus stealing income from the city) and canvassing the neighborhood breaking into cars, stealing garden hoses, stealing bird baths and anything else they can get their hands on.

God help you if you’re a contractor and your truck is parked in the driveway. When you go out there the next morning, anything of any value will be gone. This has gone on for years now. In public parking lots, any drain grates, fire hydrant caps or for that matter, anything made of metal had better be welded, bolted or cabled to the ground or it will be stolen. They recycle everything they can get their hands on, even manhole covers, which have caused serious car accidents.

copper-theftVacant homes get broken into for the the copper plumbing and wire that are ripped out of the drywall and stolen. Entire kitchen cabinet sets stolen. Carpet rolled up and stolen. Anything of any value. This goes on day and night.

Meanwhile, another argument is that illegal immigrants that come to America eventually start a business, run it all cash, hide every cent that they make from the IRS while their wife and kids collect welfare and EBT on the other side. I’m here to tell you these people live better than Americans making 80 grand a year.

I’ve been in the supermarket when a couple comes rolling up in his Escalade or pimped out Suburban, fill two carts with a bunch of food, and when they get to the register, they pay for it with multiple EBT cards. They run every scam in the book.

Then there’s the whole premise that they are just “hardworking industrious people” and they just want a better life. Oh, and one of my favorites, “They are only doing the work Americans won’t do.” Every time I hear the previous statement, I say “Finish the sentence.” The correct way to say it is “They are only doing the work Americans won’t do for five dollars an hour.” Trust me, you pay a man $25.00 an hour and he will pick lettuce, cherries and apples while building a brick wall and framing a house at the same time.

Someone needs to explain to me how bringing somebody into this country that’s will work for $8 an hour and telling him go take the job of a person that was making $35 an hour is “good for America.”

You’re taking a person that had the spending power of a $35 dollar an hour employee and paid taxes at that rate, and replacing him with someone who pays less in taxes and sends half of his money back to Mexico! HOW IS THAT GOOD FOR AMERICA???? Everything about the illegal immigration argument from its proponents is predicated on lies and falsehoods. If you press them with those simple fact, they run screaming “racism” and call you a “racist” because that’s all they have.

DoubleFingerIllegalAlienIt has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with protecting the jobs and the people of the United States of America and THEIR possessions. I don’t understand why people can’t see that. These people come into the country by breaking our laws. What makes anyone think that once they’re here they would obey any of our laws?

I haven’t even brushed on the violent crimes, vehicular crimes and rapes committed by illegal immigrants. The list goes on and on. I can come up with thousands of ways that illegal immigration is bad for America and Americans. The proponents of illegal immigration have only one argument. “They are coming for a better life.” Well I would not have an argument if they started their “better life” in America by NOT making breaking our laws their first priority.

Cuban ‘Refugees’ Crossing Border in Texas by the Thousands

Why do we continue to call Cubans refugees? These people are from a country in which we were told that President Obama had “Normalized” relations with. They are not refugees. Like the 1990’s under President Bill Clinton. I would bet they are criminals purged from Cuban prisons. Most of the Bernie Sanders crowd is too young to remember, But Fidel Castro thought it would be funny if he sent a bunch of “refugees” to America. Turns out they were all criminals released from Cuban prisons and sent to America. Clinton being the dullard he is, let them in. Over night Miami and the rest of southern Florida was turned into a war zone. Thanks Democrats.

Costa Rica's Immigration Administration Director, Kathya Rodriguez calls the roll of Cubans leaving for their journey to the Guatemala-Mexico border in La Cruz, Costa Rica, January 12, 2016. A group of around 180 Cuban migrants will be able to leave on a flight to El Salvador Tuesday evening and will then have ground transportation to the Guatemala-Mexico border, Costa Rica's Foreign Minister Manuel Gonzalez said.

At least 7,000 Cuban refugees are expected to come to the border in the next coming days.

The activity at the Hidalgo International Bridge continues. For 40 years, Jose Angel Rodriguez has made his living driving a cab.

He said he’s seeing more Cubans crossing the port of entry. “They get here every night, in the morning, and at night they get here. They go to Laredo, too,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez remembered taking a few to a hotel or store. It gets busier each week that passes by.

Down the road from the bridge were a handful of 15-passenger vans. They had Florida license plates. Giovanni Acosta is one of them.

“In Cuba, there’s nothing. There’s no freedom. We came from Cuba because the pressure that we have there,” Giovanni Acosta said.

Acosta said he’s waiting for his wife to come to the bridge so he can take her back to Miami. She’s taking the same track as he once did. “I did the same path, like all the Cubans did. I came from Ecuador. I walked for 27 days on the road,” he said.

Congressman Henry Cuellar’s office said Cuban refugees are coming to Laredo’s Point of Entry every day and the numbers are increasing. They’re coming from Central America through Mexico to the border.

Acosta’s van can take more than just his family. He said he can help the Cuban refugees, but his goal is to pick up his family, to bring them safely back home.

CHANNEL 5 NEWS spoke to U.S. Customs and Border Protection to see if they were prepared for the influx. They released a statement that said in part, “U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is prepared to process the expected increase in Cubans applying for admission at South Texas ports of entry. CBP officers will process Cuban nationals in accordance with established procedures as expeditiously as possible while maintaining requirements and standards for individuals in our care.”

No Injuries At San Diego Navy Medical Center Active Shooter Incident

AN active shooter situation was reported at the Naval Medical Center in Downtown San Diego. The hospital reported the active shooter at 8:22 a.m., prompting staff to advise all non-emergency personnel to stay away from the compound in the 34800 block of Bob Wilson Drive in San Diego.

“**!ATTENTION!** An active shooter has just been been reported in building #26 at Naval Medical Center San Diego. All occupants are advised to run, hide or fight,” the hospital wrote on Facebook.

A U.S. Navy spokesperson said authorities were searching buildings at the center. Law enforcement also began searching the hospital with a K9 unit, according to Jon Nylander, a Navy spokesman.

“Apparently someone said they heard three shots in the basement of Building 26. Maybe they did or not is not the point, that’s what they reported so that’s why we responded accordingly,” Nylander said. “We haven’t gotten any reports of any injuries.”

“If you are in the vicinity, shelter in place. If in immediate danger, hide or seek shelter in secure space. Barricade the door and dial 911. Silence phones and other devices. Stay away from doors and windows. Remain calm and quiet.”

Emergency responders were doing a “top down” search of the building, according to Nylander, and so far they have “not located any evidence” of a shooting. The basement of the building is a combination gym and barracks, he said.

The Great Bernie Sanders Scam

Bernie Sanders and his supporters have demonstrated quite clearly that they have no idea how Washington and for that matter the entire U.S. Government works. Our government has three branches. The Executive branch (For Sanders supporters, that would be the president) The Legislative branch (Congress) and the Judicial Branch (The Supreme Court.)

Chatting with Bernie Sanders supporters on social media makes it quite obvious these people have no idea why we have three branches of government. I actually had a woman (probably a 14 year old) tell me that all Sanders had to do was “say it was now law” and it would be so. I asked if she understood why it was so hard to get Obamacare passed and she replied “What’s Obamacare?”

I have these discussions with Sanders supporters all day long. To me Bernie Sanders has only succeeded in one thing. Proving that liberal politics and the liberal education system have completely failed Americans, because largely, today’s college students are yesterday’s 5th graders.

Bernie Sanders Scam Artist

Can Bernie Sanders live eight more years? Lets find out together.

One of the biggest reasons Sanders has no chance of even being elected is because “Working America” is much larger than “College America.” There are far more employed people in America than college students and stupid people. No where in any of the many work places I frequent have I heard anything positive about Bernie Sanders. Most working Americans think Sanders is a fool.

Sanders thinks a single-payer government-run system is the only way to provide universal care at an affordable cost. That’s not so: Many countries manage to cover everyone by other means. But the more immediate defect with his plan is that it has zero chance of being enacted.

Has Sanders forgotten how hard it was for Obama to get his plan passed — even though it resembled previous Republican plans, like the one created by Mitt Romney when he was governor of Massachusetts? And Obama had a Democratic Congress. The next Congress is likely to feature Republican control of one or both chambers.

To suggest President Sanders would be able to force a far more dramatic change through Congress is deluded or dishonest. His proposal serves only a political purpose: to suggest he’s bolder and more faithful to Democratic values than Hillary Clinton.

Building on Obamacare to expand coverage beyond the 90 percent of Americans who now have health insurance, as Clinton proposes, may sound less thrilling than junking it in favor of what people on the left see as the best possible system. Even her approach won’t be easy given GOP resistance. But unlike Sanders’ program, it actually has a chance of happening.

Walmart to Close 269 Stores

I wouldn’t read too much into this. Yes Walmart sales are down, but geographically speaking, Walmart has over saturated the market. Here in Los Angeles, there is a Walmart every couple of miles. Like Starbucks, There is no need from a Walmart across the street from a Walmart. There is a need to close stores that are so close together. Its a better way to manage your business. My biggest question is who is going to hire all the unemployed toothless people? JD

1262Walmart said Friday it plans to shutter 269 stores this year, including all 102 of its small-format Express stores. The move reflects a shift in tactics in which the retailing giant will focus more on building up its e-commerce firepower and improving its massive supercenters and grocery-centric Neighborhood Market stores.

As part of this strategy, the company said it will not move forward with plans to build two new supercenters in the District — one that was planned for Skyland Town Center in Southeast Washington and the other at Capitol Gateway Marketplace in Northeast Washington.

“Our experience over the last three years operating our current stores in DC has given us a fuller view on building and operating stores in the District,” the company said in a statement. “This decision will not affect our three existing stores and we look forward to continue serving these customers in the future.”

The store closures are to affect 16,000 jobs internationally, some 10,000 of those positions in the United States.

Even as Walmart plans to close hundreds of locations, it also intends to open more than 300 stores in the next year, including 50 to 60 supercenters in the United States and 85 to 95 Neighborhood Markets. The stores that are to be shuttered are ones that the retailer says account for less than 1 percent of global revenue.

Walmart had been testing the Express concept since 2011 as a way to reach a different kind of shopper and capture dollars from a different kind of shopping trip. Walmart Express stores were something of mashup between a dollar store and a small grocery, offering convenience-oriented food products but not a wide array of fresh produce or meats. The idea was that it could help Walmart win a greater share of so-called “fill-in trips,” when customers aren’t necessarily aiming to restock their pantry.

Plus, the store’s smaller footprint meant it could be a vehicle to allow Walmart to muscle its way into shopping centers and neighborhoods where a sprawling supercenter wouldn’t make sense. Back when they unveiled the Express format, executives said it would allow the chain to play “urban offense and rural defense.”

Is This The Lucky California Power Ball Winner?

If this guy is the Powerball winner, why would he not turn the ticket in and collect his winnings? I anm wondering if that’s the image from the nurse in Pomona that was pranked by her son and led to believe she won the Powerball. I doubt that the guy is the winner. Just another hoax.

A photo circulating on Instagram and Facebook showing a man holding a Power Ball ticket with the winning numbers is making it’s rounds around social media.

powerballThe photo uploaded by Instagram user “thisguysthelimit” says…”OMG I WON $1.5 BILLION!!!!!I’m posting this in case anyone tries to jack me this is proof. Look it up I bought in Chino Hills where I grew up! #powerball.”

The photo does, in fact, show what appears to be an authentic quick-pick ticket purchased for a whopping $2. The numbers all match the winning numbers and according to California Lotto officials the winning tickets was in fact sold in Chino Hills.

The 7/11 that reportedly sold the winning ticket is located at 4092 Chino Hills Parkway. The entire parking lot is jam-packed with spectators, media and people who are power ball crazy with excitement. According to Anna Estrada who is at the scene, the crowds are shouting “Chino Hills is #1”!!

Could this be the Lucky Power Ball Jackpot Winner? We will just have to wait and see.

Racist Al Sharpton Claims Academy Awards Are Racist

I have read an article from The Hollywood Insider and can really find no logic in Al Sharpton’s argument about the Academy Awards being racist. After all, 1,133 of the people that vote for “Best Actor and Best Actress” are actors and actresses themselves, and they can’t possibly be made up of only “white” people.

WCJ-images-oscars-alSharpton seems to think that because there are no black people nominated for the 2016 Oscars that by default its racist. It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with talent and performances turned in by other actors that are not classified as white. In fact, I consider Al Sharpton a racist for even insinuating that the Academy is racist for not nominating any black actors in the first place, and if the Academy Award committee had any balls, they would send a press release saying just that. In fact, I will write a quick press release for the Academy Awards.

From: Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Re: Al Sharpton’s allegation of racism

Suitable for Press Release

“We have read the recent allegations of racism leveled by Mr. Sharpton and we wish to respond. Al Sharpton is a race baiting simpleton and a media whore. He has the intellect of a three year old and can barely form a cognitive sentence. The Academy questions why Mr. Sharpton is not in jail for tax evasion and that messy Tawana Brawley incident. We would also like to take great umbrage with the media for continuing to give Mr. Sharpton a platform to further divided the races. It serves no purpose except to stir up hate and discontent.”

That should be the response from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. But alas, they have no balls. Sharpton is a raicst claiming everyone else is racist. If the Academy Awards would simply attack him, he would have no credibility. JD

Winning PowerBall Ticket Bought in Chino Hills CA

The winning PowerBall ticket sold in California was sold just minutes from my home. I did not see it but I have a friend that lives just up the street from the 7/11 that sold the ticket and she was kind enough to send me a few pictures she took. Apparently the place is mobbed and the media is everywhere. I guess for a time the Sheriff closed off Chino Hills Parkway until the pandemonium died down. I don’t understand why people that didn’t win would mob the store. To each his own, I guess.

20160113_224951

As you can see they look pretty crappy but still kind of cool. So lets review. I know someone that lives close to the 7/11 where the winning powerball ticket was sold. That’s a stretch at best. I bought my tickets just outside my work in Los Angeles. I don’t know who won, but I know their life will be forever changed. Am I a loser or what? JD

Sean Penn Desperately Seeks Relevance and Headlines With ‘El Chapo’ Interview

Sean Penn is using “Madonna Tactics” to become relevant again in the media. His interview with El Chapo is nothing more than an in back into the limelight for another run at his 15 minutes. Am I the only one here that can see this? The only thing missing was Madonna herself, Singing “Like a Virgin” and saying that her and Sean were going to marry again. Geez.

Leave it to Spicoli himself to lead the cops to El Chapo. Sean Penn might be a good actor, but there must be someone else moving his mouth when he reads his lines, because I don’t think he is smart enough to actually form a cognitive sentence. In my opinion, Sean Penn is a dunce and should be treated as such. JD

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Actor Sean Penn dismissed criticism of his interview with Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman in a supposedly secret meeting that authorities say helped them track down the world’s most-wanted trafficker.

“I’ve got nothin’ to hide,” Penn told The Associated Press after images published Monday indicated he was under surveillance when he met with the Mexican actress who led him to Guzman – and the pair was apparently followed and photographed as they set out for the meeting with the drug lord at a hideout in rural Mexico in October.

The actor also shrugged off a suggestion that he was “taking hits” for agreeing to submit his article to Guzman prior to publication by Rolling Stone magazine.

“No, you’re reading hits,” he said in a brief email exchange with The AP. In the article, Penn said Guzman requested no changes.

Guzman, who has escaped twice from Mexican maximum security prisons and is being sought for extradition by the United States, was recaptured on Friday after a bloody shootout in the city of Los Mochis in his home state of Sinaloa. He had been on the run of six months.

Late Monday evening, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto referenced Guzman’s capture in a short new year’s message to the nation.

“The detention of the world’s most wanted criminal is a credit to the coordination of our institutions in favor of security and the rule of law,” Pena Nieto said. “With this action, 98 of the 122 most dangerous criminals no longer present a threat to society and we are going for all of them.”

Mexico has begun the process of extraditing Guzman to the U.S., where he faces drug-trafficking charges, but that could take “a year or longer” because of legal challenges, said the head of Mexico’s extradition office, Manuel Merino. He cited one extradition case that took six years.

Everyone Hates Trump

I have decided to place all my memes here on my blog because after all, I created it, therefore I should at least get some traffic out of it before everyone on Twitter either steals it outright and claims it as their own or quotes it on Twitter to get retweets because someone else’s thoughts and hard work. Speaking of the whole Twitter “Qoute” function, I don’t like it. To me, it’s like giving someone the ability to say “I really have nothing to say, so I will just steal someone else’s thoughts as my own.”

Anyway, I was reading about @RealDonaldTrump (AKA Donald Trump) in the news and seeing the obvious anti Trump Bias from the reporter when it occurred to me that almost all special interest groups in America hated Trump, for obvious reasons. Because Trump is saying what Americans are thinking. He defies political correctness on a daily basis and they hate him. Hence the following meme I call “Everyone Hates Trump.”
