My Thoughts On Immigration

Thoughts on Immigration Reform

A lot of great things have happened since President Donald Trump took office. Stocks are up, jobs are up and unemployment is at the lowest it’s been in a long time, crime rates are down, illegal immigration is down, unwanted insurance is no longer being crammed down peoples throats, salaries are up and taxes are lowered.

The issues that will be ongoing are immigration and anti-terrorism. Here I will give my thoughts on the current immigration crisis. I will cover a few things that many Conservatives agree with and Liberals will hate. Thats life isn’t it, you win some and you lose some. Even some Conservatives may not agree with the my methods of madness; but I am ok with that too. I never cared to please everyone; only to do what I feel is right legally, morally, and ethically.

First, my thoughts on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). It should have never existed. It was a bias program that was racist in nature. It did not benefit the American society as a whole. It was only designed to benefit Hispanic minorities; many of whom were not born in the United States. There are millions of US citizens of other races who could not benefit from DACA. Are America’s legitimate children citizens not Dreamers as well? I was not pleased about the bias ways Obama’s presidency one bit.

Second, Send illegal immigrants back home to their nation of origin. There are many immigrants applying for residency and work permits the legal way. When illegals come to the USA illegally they lower the quota’s that Embassy’s are allowed to approve through the state department. It makes legal immigrants wait longer. It is not fair for those who are not skipping the line.

Many of these Illegal immigrants are Criminals. They have committed murder, rapes, illegal weapons trafficking, illegal drug sales, many are gang members, forced prostitution, and human trafficking. They are a drain on the American tax payers. Many come and end up in jail or on welfare unable to legally work. Welfare is a privilege that should have never been allowed to anyone without a valid visa. Criminals should be implanted with a non-removable chip. That way they can not legally return on false documentation.

For the illegals immigrants who came and have not broken any laws other than immigration’s laws; I would give them 90 days after being identified to save up and go back to their native country before being forcibly deported. I would not yet black list them since they were probably trying to do what is best for their family. This will help them to survive in their native country while they apply to return legally.

Third, I agree with having a new secure wall; Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) should take advice from Israel. We need one that cannot be climbed or tunneled under. We need a merit based immigration system that only allows immigrants that will be beneficial to American society. Perhaps immigrants should start requiring sponsors. If a business hasn’t accepted them as labor already then they shouldn’t come.

If you have a legitimate problem with a foreigner and you suspect that he might be illegally within the United States; call immigration. That does not mean you should be a dick to your neighbor that you know is legal and just don’t like. Do not waste the time of immigration; but if you see something that is not right, do something, say something. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) can be reached at 1-866-347-2423.

My end Statement: I don’t mind foreigners coming to the United States seeking a better life for themselves and their families. I just ask the people come legally and with peaceful intentions. Pay taxes and be a contributing member of society. Don’t come if all you want is a free ride on the social systems and to drop off anchor babies as a reason to stay. For years I have believed that the United States should do away with Automatic Birth Right Citizenship. The only legitimate citizens should be born to parents where at least one parent is a United States Citizen already. Otherwise just give them a birth abroad certificate and give them ninety days to get the new child added to the Visa’s or sent to their nation of origin.

Let me know what your thoughts are? How would you manage immigration?

My Frustration With Radical Islam

I have become a firm believer that Islamic immigration need to come to a full stop. Years ago I use to believe like a dumb socialist liberal; that multiculturalism and a united world would be quite utopian in nature. Imagine, a world with no borders where everyone can get along. Sounds perfect doesn’t it. Kinda reminds me of the song by John Lennon, “Imagine.” A perfect world, a perfect society. Sadly it will never work; not in our lifetime anyway.

A man name Garry Davis had the same dream as I once did. A world with no borders. After World War 2 he denounced his US Citizenship and declared himself a World Citizen. I think his actions and efforts are really most noble. He founded the World Service Authority. Let’s get this clear; It has nothing to do with the New World Order that threatened Globalization! They don’t challenge sovereignty of Independent Nations. His organization helps refugees and stateless people get World Citizen passports and other forms of identification. They do so much more. Anyone can apply for a world passport there but many countries do not recognize it, but some do. You can view his info at

I do consider myself a Constitutionalist. I am a firm believer in the freedoms guaranteed under the all the Amendments of the United States Bill of Right. The 1st Amendment being one of the most important ones. Freedom of Religion, Freedom to Peaceful Assembly, Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Petition the Government, and Freedom of Press. The key word that should have been applied to it should be Freedom to practice a Peaceful Religion.

As I got Older I learned more about the world that Social Studies and World History classes did not teach. That is the violent indoctrination that came with a certain religions and governments around the world. Education in America is very misleading when it is Socialist Liberals in control of what is printed and taught to children up to the 12th grade of school. Be thankful for modern technology. The Internet and smart phones puts the world of information in your hands. You can get a better education from a mobile phone now than you can from an American College or University. You just need to apply yourself and seek the knowledge you desire.

New Media Outlets themselves have become Propaganda machines and misleading. They take the side of who gets the ratings and who funds them. If you want to get the truth about global events you need to look for independent news outlets. Forget CNN, AL Jazeera, Sky News, and MSNBC. They are all bias garbage.

Now, back to why I feel Islamic immigration needs to stop. Their values and indoctrination to their belief system is not compatible with European or American society. Islam with their beliefs of Shariah are too third world and barbaric for a civilized society. They are taught to not respect other religions. They are taught that women are only as accountable as half a man. They kill homosexuals by tossing them from roof tops or dragging them behind vehicles. They participate in sexual slavery and slavery in general. They believe in Stoning women for being raped, molested, or disobedient. They decapitate criminals and kill those who try to leave the religion of Islam. Although many Arab countries have established laws to be compliant with the United Nations, the only laws their society will recognize is Islamic Shariah Law. Shariah itself is a crime against humanity in its doctrine.

The European Union has been struggling for almost two decades with Radical Islamists coming in the form of political refugees and asylum seekers. These so called refugees come with training in terrorism. Gunmen, bomb makers, propagandists, radical clerics and Imams, and communicators. A hand full of these refugees that come with their families in tow may be legitimate; but when you see the crowds of these immigrants on the move you see 95% are men; Not children or women.

These refugees are grooming young girls and raping women. They are beating old people on the streets, buses, and trains. They are verbally insulting, robbing, and attacking men and women in public for not conforming to their beliefs. Acid attacks on women and stabbings have become a normal blotter crime in many cities. Cities in Europe are becoming unsafe for their own citizens. There are no-go zones where the police officers cannot go because of Muslims. Non-Muslims are being murdered in this invasion of Radical Islamist.

Leaders of the European Union have put their citizens in danger; and for what? More tax revenue to push their globalist Socialist cause? For people of Italy, Germany, France, Sweden, and the United Kingdom life has been hell. Curfews had to be implemented to protect women and children after it got dark. This is Insane. France needed a good leader and they almost had one. Marine Le Pen would have been a real leader for France. It was their only real hope. Instead they got a globalist loser. France should have had a recount to see how many ballots were legal. Same in Germany. I lived in Germany 8 years and have only met 2 or 3 people who even like Angela Merkel. I think their election was full of fraud. Merkel is a big pusher of this Islamist movement that hardly anyone there wants. She is a globalist and most likely a Manchurian candidate.

Italy has just elected a new leader who promises to stop Islam Immigration through Italy and promises to deport hundreds of thousands of Muslim immigrants. I wish him so much success. The new party in Germany, Alternative For Deutschland (AFD) is also gaining momentum. The recent polls put their party ahead of Merkel’s. The Germans are also tired of the abuse ignored by their liberal socialist government. Sadly Sweden is pretty much at a civil war with Islam and its government is scared. A bunch of feminists in power who can’t make the rational decisions that male politicians would have done already. In the UK if you speak the truth about Radical Islamist it can get you put in jail for hate speech. The Liberals there sweep Islamic crimes and activities under the rug and punish its own citizens for addressing their concerns. Nothing is worse than a government that allows their Citizens to suffer just to appear politically correct.

Islamic Immigration needs to be halted everywhere. Turn the boats around, deny entry visa’s, deny visa renewals, and deport illegal Muslims who over stay their visa. Monitor mosques and deport hate preachers; shut them down if need be. I hate to write like this. Twenty years ago I would not care. I have known many good Muslims growing up. I even had one who was a teacher. No problem. But now as they migrate in the masses; they bring murder, rape, abuse, paedophilia, terrorism, and a anti-semitism. These people claim to leave their old shit-hole countries to have a better life; but every where they go they create a new shit-hole that looks like the third world shit-hole they ran away from. Good civilized societies don’t deserve this. They deserve better. Something people from Islamic countries could never be equal to.

My experience with Islam is not just based on what I see on the television or read on the Internet. I have been a first hand witness to their lifestyle. I served in the US Armed Forces. I was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army. I had 3 deployments to Iraq and Kuwait and have been all over the Middle Eastern countries. After my time in service I returned to the Middle East as a defense contractor for 6 years. I stayed mostly in Kuwait which is a cultural melting pot. Muslims of every nation and sect are working there. The country in its residential areas for Non-Kuwaiti’s are dumps. The place is diseased, foul in odors, and appearance. It not something I would wish on any place civilized. It is severely poorly managed as far as environment and public works is concerned.

It is best to divert this Islamic Immigration to other Muslim countries where they will fit in best. Let them kill each other there. The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights does not have any meaning to any of the Arab nations unless its to push their Islamic invasion agenda. I feel bad for the lives of good Muslims being ruined by the bad ones. For there to be peace in the Middle East the Moderates will have to fight the Radicals. Sadly they refrain because the Radicals are doing exactly what the Islamic holy books; The Quran, Hadiths, and the Surahs teach.

If you are from one of these places please let me know what you think. My heart goes out to those in Europe who are suffering at the hands of these so called “refugees” committing all these crimes because they think it is their Islamic right. This isn’t a cultural misunderstanding. This is who they are. Call me intolerant. I am okay with that because civilized people should not have to tolerate any of this abuse in their own neighborhoods and cities.

Noticing Poverty

I had just spent a week in Naga City. A city in the province of Camarines Sur, Philippines. Sadly poverty can bee seen here just about everywhere here in the Philippines. There are relief groups scattered throughout the Islands but I don’t think that their efforts are very impacting. 

While shopping at the SM supermarket I noticed a young boy asking his mom to buy a small drink in the cooler section near produce. It was a fruit drink and didn’t cost much. I took a look a while after they left. It was about 20 pesos or so. Anyways she kept saying no and he was very disappointed with his mom. 

As they were walking away I was looking at his young mother. She looked about 20-22ish in age. He may have been 4 or 5. I had taken a look at her clothing and quickly felt bad for them as most foreigners do when they haven’t experience that level of poverty. Her shirt was worn thin with holes wearing through in different parts and near sewing seams. Her bra was only half clasped in the back, maybe the catch had finally wore out. Her shorts were cut off blue jean pants which had additional holes and not the stylish kind. On her rough feet she had an old pair of cheap flipflop’s that her heals have almost worn through. I felt bad for her and her little boy. 

In her buggy she had only a few items. I really couldn’t make out what it was. I can only imagine that she was spending what little they had available. Hopefully she has the help of the father. But in many cases here, probably not. 

This can be seen just about everywhere around here. One just needs to open their eyes. It’s sad. Hopefully one day their luck will change. I would like to see the Philippines come out of being a 3rd world country burdened with poverty and such sad cases. If I could help them all I would but I am not rich, the government, or an NGO. If this place would ever take common wealth status from the United States their luck might change for the better.

I think the government could do more to help their citizens, but I think they like the division of social casts. Like India, the poor stay poor and the rich get richer. 

All around I see second hand clothing shops with clothes in almost new condition and often wonder if some local politician took donated goods for the poor from abroad and decided to profit on them. I really don’t see how there can be so much second hand goods to sell when there are so many people without and in need.

Thanks for taking the time to read. It’s been a while since I posted anything. I kinda been chilling at home in Caramoan or my apartment in Naga City. I have been lacking motivation lately. Email me if you want my thoughts on any issue’s.

Baby Guaiabero Parrot

A little boy came by my house with a little surprise. His brother had given him a baby bird that fell out the Mango Tree near his house. It wasn’t injured so it must not have fell far. I offered to buy it from him but he refused to sell. I told him it eats fruits like Guava’s.  He said they were feeding it banana. That’s OK too.

It’s a baby male Guaiabero Parrot. The female has yellow mixed in the feathers and the males blue. On the tips of the developing feathers around his body you can see a few small bits of blue. I shared photos of a matured female a few months ago on a post. 

I need to diet more….

Lucky kid.

Harvesting The Rice

This morning when I woke up and started moving about the house I took a look out the window as usual. I just love seeing nature and this peaceful country side. The province life of the Philippines is so much better and healthier than being in the polluted concrete jungle called Manila. 

I noticed my neighbors were working the rice pad’s.  They are cutting it, stacking for drying, and separating the rice from the plant. It’s not easy work as light as rice seems. It’s a lot of bending over, swinging a blade, stacking, and being under direct sun. For me, if I was doing it, I am sure my back would be killing me.

Rice stacked for drying
Neighbours in the rice paddy

From an upper view the stack of rice looks similar to the shape of a doughnut. The rice that isn’t quite ready remains uncut as seen near the stack. 

Breaking for a moment
Burnt straw

Later they will burn the straw from the rice to return some of the nutrients back into the soil. 

When all the rice is gathered they will separate it under improvised shade made of palm leaves.

Separating the rice under improvised shade

Later they will lay it out again on tarpaulins for the rice to continue hardening in the husk. Some will be saved for seed and the rest will go to the mill and the rice grains will be separated from the husk. This is the Provincial farmers life.

Photos were taken with a Canon EOS 1200D with a Sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6 APO DG MACRO zoom lens with hood. No editing or filters were used other than name and data stamp.

April Flower’s Part 2

Once again I went around our Barangay Agaas taking macro photos of flower and such. Barangay Agaas is part of the Caramoan Municipality in Camarines Sur, Bicol, Philippines. I don’t know thw local or scientific names. I just enjoy them, so here they are. 

Some are very colorful, unique, and stand out. I just like how they can stand out from the background. I used manual focus without the flash. I wanted to isolated the flower from it’s surrounding’s. 

The Camera I used is a Canon EOS 1200D. The lens is a Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG Macro with Hood. No filters were used. No Photoshop either.
