Immigration-oy vey

Why is it so hard to end the immigration situation? Because the powers that be (and no, that doesn't mean the Republicans or Democrats-it's all those bastages) do not want to end it. Could be any one of a dozen reasons, but here is how it could be solved quickly and easily. First, if a child is born here, he or she is not a citizen. That is an archaic law, and has outlived its usefulness. Second, if an employer has illegals, and he or she has not made a reasonable effort to ascertain that the employee(s) were legal, well, the employer should face jail time. Third, an illegal immigrant should be returned to their homeland, immediately. If they are found a second time, return them after a short stint at hard labor. If an immigrant comes back illegally a third time, lifetime incarceration at hard labor. I know it sounds harsh, but I am speaking about illegals. They have no right to come here. They do not operate within our law. That said, it should be easier for immigrants to enter this country legally. Requirements should include, first and foremost, the ability to read and speak English.

Your tax dollars at work?

Gas is around 3 bucks a gallon. NJ is so deep in debt that the sales tax is going to be raised. I can't walk into McDonald's and order a coffee without an interpretor. Young people are dying in Iraq. The list could go on and on. So, what is the NJ legislature debating today? They are deciding what is to be the official dirt of New Jersey. Today, they will probably designate downer soil as our official dirt. Now here is more than you ever wanted to know about Downer Soil:
Downer soil is formed in sandy coastal plains and characterized by a surface layer featuring dark grayish brown, loamy sand. It is often found in woodlands with oaks, hickory and pine trees. The truly sad part is that 20 other states have an official dirt, also. This is why we vote them into office, to do stupid stuff like this?

Remember me?

I live in your neighborhood. I yell at the kids who play ball in front of my house. I complain about the price of everything, and constantly remind everyone that gas used to cost 29 cents a gallon. And, back in my day, kids had respect. Today, my favorite thing to do is sit by the side of the road and yell at cars. They drive too fast, or their radios are too loud. With this internet thing, I can yell at a lot more people, and since most of them have cars, I'm killing two birds with one stone. I expect to do a lot of yelling, so check back in and see what I'm yelling about. Today, I'm just going to list all the things that piss me off. 101 people or things that piss me off (in no particular order) 1.
