"The Late Great State of California"

Note:  The following information sounds too good to be true.  I invite anyone to google any of this to confirm it was indeed the case.  I should know, I grew up there.

In 1960 a California student could expect to graduate from the finest school system in the nation.  California students regularly produced the highest SAT scores in the nation.  After graduation from high school a California student could expect to attend any of the state universities free of charge; no tuition was charged.  A student was expected to pay only a small enrollment fee and for his books. 

The wealth of California during this time was astounding.  When gauged by economic wealth, the state of California was wealthier than almost every other nation, actually ranking as the 5th largest "nation" in the world.   The state boasted of having the busiest international harbors in the world, ranked number 1 in agriculture and not only fed the United States but much of the world.  The bountiful California economy was a leader in mining, oil, pork and beef production and tourism.  Hollywood ginned out the largest percentage of the world's entertainment and California was known throughout the world as the Golden State for good reason.

The great San Joaquin valley was a pristine green bowl of bounty.  Lovely grape vineyards and orchards of peach and almonds and citrus could be seen in quilted pattern from any height.  A Californian could, in a single day, ski at Mineral King, surf in the Pacific Ocean, and camp under a canopy of Redwoods in lush National Forests.

What happened?

Well, to begin with, California in the 1960's had a total of 9 million residents, the large majority of which were hard working legal residents.  Today, California has 35 million residents and fully a third of them are illegal.  The "new" California immigrant comes flowing across the border in anticipation of receiving very generous state and federal benefits.  Many of those who have come bring with them their Mexican criminal past, their drug runners and the ilk who will invade your home and rob you, steal your car and worse, your identity.    Feeling no "investment" in their new home illegals have no qualms about trashing the streets with worn out sofas, fast food wrappers, discarded tires, old oil and the various and sundry refuse of a life without merit.  Illegal Mexicans have brought diseases to California that haven't been seen in the U.S for fifty years!

Remember those pristine National Forests and State Parks?  Now the State Park Service and National Park Service must warn visitors from travelling in the parks; they have now been havens for Mexican pot growers who have infested the parks with growers, guns and the willingness to harm anyone who threatens their pot farms.

Remember those beautiful valley farming cites like Stockton, Merced, Modesto, Sanger, Fresno, Tulare and Bakersfield?  Just this week the EPA declared these cities to be the nastiest in the United States with air not fit for humans.  These cities are now overrun with illegals who bring with them the pestilence of polio, tuberculosis, hooping cough and a dozen other diseases that were once gone from the U.S. populace.  They further brought the pestilence of "hit and run" uninsured drivers, burglary, robbery, rape, murder and a natural affinity for birthing multiple anchor babies, which gains them a toe hold into the welfare, WIC, Social Security SSI, Earned Income Credits, Child Tax Credits, Food Banks, Food Stamps, court mandated free medical care and court mandated education for every illegal child. 

Los Angeles has, in 15 short years, turned into Mexico City North, plagued with budget shortages, explosive crime rates and a populace that is loyal only to the Mexican flag.

The California state budget has bordered on bankruptcy for fifteen years as the golden state has now become the "brown-out" state, running annual deficits fully 25 percent higher than their revenues.  The K-12 education system is a swamp of inefficiency and bogged down with criminal youth who have little interest in learning English, much less anything else.  Tuition is still very low if you are non-productive and  on the government tit, but if you work for a living, forget it.  You won't be able to afford the sky high tuition rates.

To accommodate the rising costs of supporting the illegal invasion, California began raising taxes and fees in the late 1970's.  The first migration of the state by the "working class" was upward into Oregon.  As the quality of life in California began to decline, state working class residents began the continual migration to Nevada, Arizona and Texas.  The trend continues; California continues to see a drop in revenue growth as the producers continue to migrate out.  Even Silicon Valley companies are fleeing to Austin, Texas and Phoenix, Arizona.  Intel just announced a massive expansion of their chip-making plant in Phoenix.

Liberal Democrats have been in control of  the Statehouse in Sacramento for thirty years now.  They have managed to preside over a state crippled by greedy unions and piggish state bureaucrats who have no other interest but maintaining the status quo.  Their answer to California's problems has been an unending flow of tax hikes to finance their union and state employees and a "legalized through past amnesty" Hispanic power base who promote and indeed cheer the illegal invasion.

There exists a significant group of people who love to talk about the possibility that a mythical "Atlantis" existed; a land of wealth and prosperity and an educated citizenry!  One need not go that far back in time.  California was that "Atlantis" not that long ago.

Sadly, for those who still remember, it is heartbreaking to see what the "Late Great State of California" has become.

Violence is not the answer; it is still not too late to change things at the ballot box; just need "citizens" to vote the open borders/amnesty folks out of office.

I live in a delightful mixed neighborhood of Caucasians, Mexican-Americans, Indian and Chinese families in California. One of the things they have in common is they are all hard-working, legal immigrants. The first commenter is using an obvious ruse to make the argument about something else. This is not about profiling those of Latino heritage. This is about not breaking the back of the hard working legal taxpayers in support of FOREIGN NATIONALS with no legal right to be in this country. jo

A Modest Scribler said...

Thank you, Jo. Most folks who have read all of my blogs know that my best friend in my youth was hispanic, I served with many fine hispanics. I love the hispanic heritage of good hispanic Americans, their religious beliefs, their food and their culture. Open borders supporters can never justify the invasion so they defend it the only way they know how; label anyone who opposes illegals as "racists". One note; there are simply not enough Hispanic Americans who will speak out against illegal immigration and this actually hurts them in the eyes of Americans. If they would speak up loudly against the invasion they would be admired beyond belief.

A good immigration policy is like a good irrigation system. Allowing fresh waters in nourishes and replenishes the home soil. Just open the flood gates and the torrential rush of flood waters destroys everything. jo

A Modest Scribler said...

You are so right Jo. Our whole history is blessed with a new generation of immigrants coming here in an orderly way to refresh the American bloodstream. As each generation of German, Irish, Chinese, Japanese came they worked hard and served as a reminder to native born Americans that the American dream is "real". Unfortunately, Mexico is exporting their problems; uneducated, some criminal, all needy and knowing how to sign up for all the free goodies. The gaming has been going on too long and is drowning us. I have no problem with allowing a couple of million "legal immigrants" in each year but no uninvited...finally, we must have an end to illegal hiring; it is supressing wage rates to the point that the average American can no longer earn a living wage.

A very fair and balanced article that totally takes larger national and international economic and political shifts and likenesses into account! It is accurate to suggest that California exists in a vacuum- while the rest of the US, and the west in general, enjoys continued, consistent prosperity and stability. I particularly like your photo of Mexican immigrants in their typical state. I've lived in California since 1996 and I could never figure out why Mexican guys are always grabbing their crotches and giving me the finger. I now know after reading your article. Thanks!!

A Modest Scribler said...

I get your sarcasm...indeed we should consider international and economic and political shifts. In fact I discussed them in today's blog. However, that doesn't account for 15 years of deficits, year in and year out. In fact, when Silicon Valley was flush and the internet boom was on going California still barely managed to pay the bills..and certainly couldn't afford to sock away funds for a rainy, the dems just kept spending as much as was taken in. Now, the state is crippled permanently and you just keep welcoming more of the invaders to come. Economics aside, if you can live with the crime and disease and ecological consequences, have at it. Unfortunately, your producing taxpayers are leaving and California will end up as Mexico North, sick, corrupt (read, Bell and all the other hispanic run cities) and impoverished.

I am a legal resident. came to this country 21 years ago. I have served in the military for 20 years. I am an officer. Been deployed to Iraq twice. Have a master Degree in IT and I have a steady good paying job for the past 10 years. I love this country and what it stands for and the opportunities it offers to live a decent life. I love serving and I would love for this country to continue its way of life for generations. BUT I dont know what its leaders have been doing, they are in the payroll of corruption, and/or stupidity. what does it take for them to realize the state of the economy, they dont have the vision to see what is coming, maybe they do but can care-less as they think selfishly. One day, probably in my lifetime, this country's economy will collapse. Not just deteriorate, but collapse. The question is not IF but WHEN. The wheels are and have been in motion for awhile and I doubt anything can be done to reverse its course. It is beyond repair. Illegal Immigration is part to blame, I would say a significant share of the blame BUT so is greed of those who are/were put into office to lead and serve and instead sold out to those even greedier than them. So, to Illegal immigration, lets add corruption, greediness. Bank bail outs? Wall Street bailouts? Insurance Bailouts... all of them got bailouts further increasing the National Debt, but Plenty of the rich became richer.

As a hispanic, (not mexican) I will vote for anyone who at least for election purposes offers to control and put an end to illegal immigration. In the end, all is beyond repair. Crime, gangs, Mob, white collar crime, etc etc. This will never go away, not in our lifetime and under our current system. We would need drastic measures and a different system.

confirmed violent crime should not be dealt with prison but . Gangs and drug related crime should not be dealt with prison. Welfare should be selective. Deportation should be swift, no Amnesty. No more wars. No jobs outsourcing. Fiscal responsibility and a revised tax law. but this WONT happen. Be ready be prepared for harsh times ahead.

A Modest Scribler said...

First of all, thanks for your service. Secondly, thank you for, as a hispanic, being in love enough with America to stand up and condemn illegal immigration. With regard to our national problems I urge you to tune in next week to my blog called "Life Like a Wheel"; it defines our current problems..but also offers hope that we can turn things around. Thank you much for visiting my blog and for taking the time to leave comments.

To Anon the Hispanic retired officer. Thank you for your service and proving that it isn't ethnic heritage that is the problem. I totally agree with you on the greed and avarice of our elected leaders. I will also say that this extends into our business arena, due to those same leaders.

And last, but certainly not least, take away the bird-feeder, and make the pigeons go out and work. I once heard (unconfirmed) that 40% of the US population is collecting some form of government assistance, that's almost half. But how do we break a system fixated on cycles of dependence and laziness without hurting the people truly in need of it. I'll tell you how, and it's already starting in some places, it just needs more push. First, mandatory continuous drug-testing to collect government assistance, (all govt assistance). Half of the private sector, and all of the civil service industry that I know of, are subjected to random or routine drug testing. So why then should the people being supported by the government, who allegedly need help from the government to survive due to whatever reason, be above this standard. I sure do not want my tax money going to someone who is turning around and using it to get high all day while they are NOT working. Who can legitimately argue this point? It just makes sense. Drugs are criminal and expensive, and if someone is being supported by everyone else's hard work, then it should not be tolerated that they have and use them, period. Second, convictions for "violent" the system. I say "violent" because some felonies can be easily obtained in some states. Not that I have any, I'm just giving a little leeway here for the liberals. Again, who needs explanation for this? If you are a hard-core criminal, or a drug dealer, we should not be paying for you. And no more welfare money just for having more kids. We as a society need to bring back accountability. Back when people had to work to survive, they only had as many kids as they could support, or as many as they needed to help on the farms. This is how it should be. Fundamentally, a government cannot, and should not be expected to pay for anyone's family, especially when that person just keeps having more kids, without regard to how they will live, simply because they get more government money for it. Or as I was once told by a bum with no job or place to live, with nine kids, that he needed to "repopulate his race". I am not making this up, and this was not a man on hard times looking for a job to support his family. This was a man who simply did not care and just did whatever he wanted. He did not pay for those kids, or even care to try. They were just out there living somewhere else, obviously not with him, and being paid for by the hard-working, responsible people supporting the system. The type of people, such as myself, who wait til later in life to have kids because they understand the financial and parental responsibility that goes along with it. Yes, circumstances happen, and people need help from time to time, I get it. That's why we have these systems, and I feel that the majority of Americans not only don't mind helping the next American, I feel that most Americans take a sense of pride and fulfillment in being able to help our neighbors. However, we as Americans are sick of paying away most of our hard-earned money to support people who are ungrateful, lazy, and criminal. People who will continue to take from the givers so long as the checks keep coming, and have no aspirations to ever do anything else all day, except sit around and commit more crimes, putting more of a burden on the law enforcement system, which, like everything else, continues to get more expensive every year because of the amount of crime and criminals with nothing legal or productive to do with their time. The same time that is being paid for by the tax-payer.

It is time for the people of this country to bring back accountability, and for everyone to be responsible for their actions. Our current way of life is unsustainable, and will only continue to decline. It is time to wake up.

Fair Tax!!! No more income tax, this system is broken, and only promotes excessive spending at the hands of the politicians, whom we know never seem to care about the average American's problems. The income tax system is one of the factors killing the middle class. For those who don't know, under the fair tax system, everyone pays a sales tax on everything that they buy, but there is no more income tax. So, instead of the middle class paying 40-45% of their wages to the Fed and State governments, (Yes, I do), to support the waves of illegals and scores of welfare recipients, everyone that purchases an item in this country contributes to the tax base. Say, 10-15% on essential clothing and food items, and maybe home and basic car purchases as well, just to keep the true cost of living reasonable. But then charge 25-35% sales tax on all of the unnecessary "luxury" items that everybody wants; such as: flat screen TVs, game systems, jewelry, designer clothing-(defined by true cost to make/vs sales price...that'll keep the manufacturers honest), etc. That way, every illegal that wants to live the American dream by coming to the land of wealth and buying new things will no longer be able to just suck off the system, they will instead help support it with every purchase they make here. And all of the people who make excessive amounts of money will now pay their fair share for big ticket items, such as $300,000 cars, $40,000 earrings, etc., making their money a little more valuable to them, as it has been and always will be for the people that have to work hard for it. This system will also force politicians to make wise and careful choices concerning their economies, because the influx of money will depend solely on the condition of said economies, and not on the continuous flow of incoming taxes that are bleeding the dream out of the hard workers of this great nation. (A second alternative to this system, in my opinion, is a Fair Tax/Income Tax system. Say 10% income tax across the board for everyone, plus the high sales tax. This would allow for a steady and dependable tax income for the government, and it would also allow for tax rebates to be paid to the true tax-payers for things such as dependents, charitable donations, etc.)

Next, make English the official legal language of this country, (Yes, it truly is not the official language by law, and just so you know, one of Obama's few votes before being elected president, was to keep it this way...Un-American). Once English is the official language, then legislation can be enacted that requires English be learned to become a citizen, get a driver’s license (not necessary in NC, I don't know about other states), collect welfare and other government aid, etc.etc. This just makes sense on all levels, and I don't feel it requires further explanation. English is a secondary language in many countries wishing to be successful, solely because of The United State's influence on the world. Why would it be acceptable to think that you will come live here, and not learn the language?

Anon, Part 1 & 2: Couldn't have said it better myself. I've written about all of this on many of my blog entries. Of course the problem is all of the special interests and the "dependent class" who form a significantly large voting block. In order to make any of this happen the "producers" have to rise up and demand it.

Unknown said...

You are right in so many levels, but let me tell you something..
Not all of these illegal immigrants are Mexicans. I know illegal immigrants from all over the world, at college. I know that most of these people you hate with all of your souls are Mexicans. I,personally, don't like the type of Mexicans like the ones in the picture above and I wish that something be done in Congress to stop this illegal immigration plague. I think this is too much already. I just hope that you, the resentful ones, are successful people. Because let me tell you....I came from Mexico many years ago, unfortunately illegally, went to college and now I am a very successful entrepreneur. I have paid my taxes every single year and never asked the government for a single penny to be where I am today.
I think you are giving so much energy to that problem and so it is getting stronger. You will only become ill, not because of the filthy mexicans, but because of all the poison you hold inside.
Change your minds and enjoy your lives. In the end the only one to put an end to all the problems is the government. Yes, you can always go out and hunt them down like aminals.

Note to Readers: As of today, I've written 114 blog entries. This particular blog subject has generated thousands upon thousands of visitors to my blog and represents 12 percent of all page views for this single blog! From the personal emails I have received from readers, as well as the posted comments, a very large number of folks agree with me on illegals and the negative effect it has had on the state.
It seems to me there are lots of folks who remember the Golden State as it once was.

Thanks so much for all of your feedback on this.

A Modest Scribler said...

Sergio, I don't believe you have read enough of my blogs to understand that I don't waste my energy, or sicken myself, by "hating Mexicans". I have many friends who are Hispanic, I love the traditional culture of Mexico, and I welcome every single legal immigrant. With regard to illegal immigrants not being Mexican, over 90 percent are Mexican...doesn't mean I am not against illegal Chinese or Vietnamese or Korean immigration but they represent a small portion of the illegal populace.
When you begin fighting for a cause you try to take out the "biggest opposing force" and those are Mexican illegals.
I would also say two things more: one, I believe we made a huge mistake giving blanket amnesty before; we rewarded the invaders and encourgaged further invasion and we also asked nothing from those we gave amnesty too..thus, we end up with millions of "so-called" legal Hispanic citizens who, because they have no allegiance to the U.S., put the illegal first and our citizens second. They refuse to speak up against the invasion.
As to whether I'm a "successful person" I'll let others judge that; I gave 22 years of my life for my country, I'm not on welfare and have never asked for a government hand-out and I obey our nation's laws, to include paying taxes honestly. And I am clearly not afraid to face the wrath of Mexicans and liberals who oppose my campaign to rouse the American people in active and sustained opposition to any effort to legalize another 30 million invaders.
Thanks for your comments.

A Modest Scribler said...

Forgot to add Sergio. Reference your statement "the only ones that can fix this is the government"....Sergio, by coming here illegally you missed a valuable civics lesson..We, the citizens, are the "government". We can change this if we rise up and demand it.

Unknown said...

I know that"we, the people are the government." I went to the university in Mexico but when i came here, I started from scratch my education. Finished High School and went to college. So I know about American Government, History and a lot of other things about this wonderful country. I know that people empowers the government or disempowers it. I hope that you will muster enough energy to make people rise up and demand.
As for me...I'm going to Paris next week. I'm gonna enjoy my life before you guys rise up. It's gonna be chaos.
Good luck with your cause and God bless.

Dear Anon, Please run for office. You are the type of politician this country needs. The only thing that would NOT get you elected is a movement within the segment of society that is receiving the government handouts to oppose your election!

I'm sorry, but I think it IS too late to save this once beautiful state. We're past the tipping point - there are enough people here to continue getting liberal democrats into office, no matter how bad it gets. Happens every election. Which means it'll never get better.

Thanks for your comments, Renojim. But we must consider the alternative; if we give up it's all over. We will only know if we can win the fight if we keep fighting. Chin up fella; there's still enough "producers" that if we rise up and demand reform we can make it happen.
Again, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

You have two families:
"Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal".

families have two parents, two children and live in

Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes
$25.00 per hour, with taxes deducted.

Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number
and gets paid $15.00 cash per hour, "under the table".

Ready? Now pay attention ...

Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week or
$52,000.00 per year. Now take minimum 30% away for state and
federal tax and Joe Legal now has$31,231.00.

Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week or

Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his
family at $600.00 per month or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now
has $24,031.00.

Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities,
gasoline, plus what he sends out of the country every month.

Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after

Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family

Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school. Joe
Legal pays for his children's lunches while Jose Illegal's children get a
government sponsored lunch.
Jose Illegal's children have an after
school ESL program. Joe Legal's children go home and he needs to
pay for a babysitter to watch them while he and his wife work.

Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services,
but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay anything.

Do you get it, now?

If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal
aliens in any manner, then you are part of the problem!
That means hiring these people because you’re so damn
greedy and only think about yourself. I personally think
You should be prosecuted and jailed.

It's WAY PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!

It is also way past time to rescind the "anchor
baby" law.
Remove the incentive for illegals to rush across
our border to give birth and thus have access
to benefits Americans have worked
and paid their entire lives for!

Sergio, how can you post 'unfortunatelly illegally'? Fortunately illegally is more like it since your status caused you to receive a free education. So today with being 'successful', how about now paying for it! Consider this paying back on your then legally authorized student loan. Surely a small price in return for the success achieved.

You all are a bunch of whiners. Don't you know that you determine your own fate? Quit blaming others for your problems. The math above is propaganda. There is no way those numbers are correct. The fact of the matter is America became lazy and it is not this generations fault, but the baby boomers fault. They were selfish and ate the meat off the bone and here we are fighting for scraps. They ransacked our natural resources and now we have to live in a recession. What age group got us into this? As far as illegals, well nobody belongs in this continent but the Natives, yes Mexicans are natives. It is only a matter of time before you are absorbed by the land. War will not solve anything anymore. We are Humankind and we are evolving. We will mix races and in the future there will be no more hate. Einstein said, "Nationalism is the greatest threat to mankind". I dont care what race you are, we are all from Earth. If it is a battle of Good vs. Evil, then evil has won. There are no more hero's, because the cowards have killed them off and created governments with heavily armed goons (police), to control the masses. If you are caught between legal vs illegal, then my friend, you have lost already. No to NWO!

If you are mentally retarded I apologize in advance but I simply can't have you abusing every poster on the board. Your remarks are so general they are useless...and they are silly. If you have something concrete to say, say it...with examples, sources, etc. Otherwise, we'll just all have to be content with the dozen other inane postings which are still on these boards.

OK. I agree with your article. The problem we have is that every one of our political members have been purchased by multinational corporations.

You only need to stud the companies o see evidence of this. For instance, Hershey's chocolate company closed their factory in the central valley and moved it to Mexico. What makes them so confident in the drug cartel/government down there? What makes them so sure that they won't simply seize or socialize their assets? The full will and collaboration of the American Government.

Wowit is not even worth it to work anymore according to that post which carries alot of truth.Mexicans are taking over California.It will come back around to bite them in the ass in the future.When all tha working tax payers are gone, run off by these people, who will support them? Then they will have California which is what they wanted but they will not have the education or means to keep the state running.How will they support themselves?This state will be one rightous mess (With really nice landscaping)I guess then the whites will come back and build it up all over again.So goes the way of life.

By our selective breeding practises, we can out produce most Native peoples by 4 to 1 .In due time we rule by share numbers .California is a fine example .We can work under the table because Farmers pay that way .As long as they do, we will only grow more and more and more.Since we work under the table we qualify for most all california social services, you name it and we get it ! You are starting to see more mexican business here and that trend will continue .Take a good long look at our mexican cities and that is what california will be in due time .Give it another 25 years if your still alive and you will see change you will have to believe in !The worst part for you is that their is no stopping it.Your a day late and a dollar short !

Foolishness. First of all, illegal immigrants do not qualify for federal benefits, "generous" or otherwise. Generally speaking illegal's are not eligible for ANY social service programs except emergency medical care. Secondly even the most paranoid teabagger places the number of illegal immigrants in California at around 2 million --- which is still serious at 17%, but no where near 1/3. Many illegal's pay taxes and social security without receiving benefits, so they are not the drain many imagine.

California is bankrupt because greedy legal residents have, through the state's initiative and referendum process, voted themselves generous state benefits and also voted to freeze state and local taxes. Environmental loonies have mandated job killing regulations. It is Californians who are killing California, not illegal immigrants.

Hey anon, i want you to stop writing naive foolishness about illegal aliens not getting federal and state benefits. just google a few things; go to the Health and Human Services site and read some of their studies, one of which says 75% of illegal aliens are receving some form of U.S. government check. In both Arizona and California illegals are occupying Section 8 housing units that should be going to needy "legal; citizens.

Illegal aliens get an additional "foothold' into federal benefits by breeding "anchor" soon as the mother drops the kid there in the social security and welfare offices to sign up for welfare and wic in the "legal" child's name.

Again, while you're at it "google" illegal aliens game the IRS for billions in child tax credits using the INIT (non resident) tax filing forms to garner $11 billion dollars of our tax payer money, some for children that aren't even here, but still residing in Mexico.

I could go on to cite 20 other instances of illegals sucking the life from our social safety net but I'll not do it...don't be so damned lazy to learn for yourself...and quit being so damned's suckers like you who help perpetuate this theft.

"Just", follow your own advice and look on the net to get info re: Anchor baby entitlements.

A Modest Scribler said...

Sailor, you have no idea how weary I get reading liberal gibberish...PLEASE! Go back and read what you just wrote; NOTHING! I know exactly what anchor babies are doing to us and I know what a drain they are on our hospitals, our welfare system, our Section 8 housing...because I, unlike you, do my research! You on the other hand, just mouth words, like a petulant and pouty little offered NOTHING to refute what I wrote.
I am so tempted to just delete the gibberish that libs like you's just so beyond stupid that it never justifies a response.. Sad. Damned sad.

where was Sailors response?

Are you in Arizona or Ind.

A Modest Scribler said...

To USN Friend (aka, Sailor), Sailor's reponse, after the first one, where he offered nothing, was deleted because they too offered nothing. I will always respond to specific and documented facts which go toward disputing those in my essay. What I will not do is continue to print a one line inanity that does nothing to forward the debate except to extend an open forum for liberal generalized gibberish. Thanks for asking Sailor.

To Arizona resident, I am in Arizona; don't know how you got the idea I was in Indiana.

"Just", Was not surprised to see that you caught my new name. Wanted to see if you would respond to the 2 posts that I sent that you did not respond to.
(1) I asked you to look up "Center for for Immigration studies"..poverty, welfare and the uninsured.. link.
Not internet competent enough to provide the link on my own.
(2) 2nd response was that..." if you are "weary" of reading another view of your self serving comments.. close the blog and we will not come back to show another view of your comments!
Also, search for "Who is one old Vet"
Found photos to be similar.
I am a (Ret) 30 year SEAL, an speak for myself and am not Happy with "Paid for by negative, current, President, Super PAC",SEALs.
As you, I am sure we had our dedication and desire to serve the U.S.A. as our motivation to remain on active duty as long as we did.
I will continue to express what I see as a alternate view and links to a 2nd view of comments provided by bloggers!

Seal 30, this is the third name you've used and the fifth time you've posted and I still can't understand a damn thing you're talking about.

If you're trying to dispute the destructive nature of the illegal invasion, and if you're attempting to deny the enormous financial burden these invaders have placed on us, please provide a response. You certainly "talked" enough in your last post but it was incoherent, again, empty of any substance.

Good luck to you, but, as I said, I won't be continuing this little exercise in futility.

Sorry for interrupting, but it would be useful for a blog to have the ability to rate the comments, and not just rate, but mark them as a spam by others reading your blog. In this case you would never have to go down to the level of the people posting irrelevant things for the sake of creating an argument. Also, it'll eliminate the need of deleting, and being blamed that you are not liberal enough to tolerate somebodies bs. Natalia
