Border Security

Some Countries Are Serious
The USA does not seem to be to serious about border control. I received the following information the other day, and I am sure it is only partially correct. In any case it does indicate a problem that we have along our borders in the USA.

  • If you cross the north Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor.
  • If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely.
  • If you cross the afghan border illegally, you get shot.
  • If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally you will be jailed.
  • If you cross the Chinese border illegally you may never be heard from again.
  • If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy and your fate will be sealed.
  • If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown into political prison to rot.
  • If you cross the U.S. border illegally you get or can get the following:
    -a drivers license
    -social security card
    -food stamps
    -credit cards
    -subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house
    -free education
    -free health care
    -a lobbyist in Washington
    -billions of dollars worth of public documents 
         printed in your language
    -the right to carry your country's flag while you
         protest that you don't get enough respect
    -and, in many instances, you can vote.

I know the above is a “web/internet” exaggeration, but I do believe in border control, and to only allow LEGAL immigration!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Take the time today to call someone in you family. Maybe someone you don’t talk to very often.
Let them know you care about them. Use that cell phone in your pocket, it won’t cost you anything but a little time. And it will spread a little cheer and kindness.

Quote of the Day
Today I bent the truth to be kind,
and I have no regret, for I am far surer
of what is kind than I am of what is true.

HermanDid you remember to bring my suntan oil?

(He’s making it easy by bringing a paint roller &
pan to apply the suntan oil. Smart guy!)
