Should North And South America Copy EU Border Policies?

Should N. & S. America Copy EU Border Policies?

 

If you are from the Americas, simply meaning North of South America there is a good chance that you are aware of the border issues between the U.S. and Mexico. If you are aware of the U.S. President, Donald Trump then you are probably aware of his feelings about wanting a very high border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. It is my personal belief that there are good things and bad things about open, and about closed Borders between Nations. This should be obvious from the simple fact that there are good and bad people in every Nation, Religion and Ethnicity. I wish that I had the answers for everything concerning this issue, but I simply don’t. My goal with this article, just like almost all of the articles that I write, is to get the kind folks who read my articles to think deeper about the issues.

 

First I guess we would need to consider what we think about the EU example if we are going to possibly consider doing the same here in the Americas. Chancellor Merkel of Germany has been a huge driving force concerning open Borders though out all of Europe. The stats have shown that for many years the overall population of Western Europe has been declining. This would mean that, for example, you live in Germany and your economy is doing great, wages are up because companies are having to compete for quality workers, even untrained laborers. When the concept of Open Borders began in the Halls in Brussels it was pre-Arab Spring and pre-Syria melt down. The original idea would have made it much easier for a citizen of Spain or Italy to move to France if France’s job market and quality of life were better than the jobs and quality of life in Spain. This concept of Open Borders was not counting on their being several million refugees flooding into Europe because of turmoil outside of Europe’s Borders. With the large influx of Arab and Persian refugees flooding into Europe things like jobs, housing and the cost of food has become a big problem not only for the original residents but also for those migrating in. Even if there were no elevation in crime, petty or violent, you still have the makings for conflict.

 

Lets look at the ‘why’s’ for these migration issues for a moment please. Somethings come down to ‘animal’ instincts. Some may not like that statement but if you will think about it for a moment most of you will understand what I mean by that. For thousands of years, millions of years, animals have migrated with the seasons, with the food supplies, this is true of birds, big lizards and humans. Sometimes all of these creatures have migrated because of violence in their traditional homeland. With humans this usually means enslavement, death, or escape. For a moment lets look at the reality of Islamic Refugees flooding Europe. First we need to look at the why’s, why are these people risking their lives to migrate from Northern Africa and the Middle-East to Europe? Here are a few issues I would like you to think about for a moment. First lets start with unstable governments, horrible or no economies, not enough food, clean water or shelter and their biggest issue is violence/wars. My question to you is, under these realities wouldn’t you try to move, to get yourself and your family out of these conditions? Even under brutal Dictators these people mostly stayed in their home countries, in their own lands. You may well wonder why people would stay living under someone like al-Assad of Syria and I believe that the answer was simple, he made sure there was an efficient economy, he made sure that the lights were on and that there was food to eat and the trash got picked up off of the streets. Are there some very evil people like Jihadist mixing in with the masses? Of course there are and yes it is difficult to screen them out, but does Europe, does Christianity, throw out the starving, hungry and cold because of the one or two percent?

 

Now, lets talk about North and South American Countries for a moment please. When I Googled for the information I came up with a total of 55 ‘American’ Nations between the North, South, Caribbean and Central America. The Census from 2015 says that within these 55 Nations there are approximately 994 Million people living in these countries. China on the other hand has one Billion Three Hundred and Eighty Million residents, India has One Billion Three Hundred and Twenty Five Million people. The largest physical Nation on Earth is Russia and they have One Hundred and Forty-Five Million People. The U.S. it is said has Three Hundred and Twenty-Three Million residents.

 

To me it seems that President Trump only has a problem with our Southern Border with Mexico, not the much larger Border we share with Canada. I have never once heard him talk about building even a little short wall to divide our two Nations, have you? Do you ever consider if part of the issue here is skin color, or the reality that almost all of the people at our Southern Border are poor? Truth is that there are some violent gang members like members of the MS-13 folks mingled in with the families who are starving and have nothing who are only hoping for a safe place to live and to raise their children. Throughout the years I have spoken with quite a few people who were here working in the U.S. who were here illegally concerning the why question, why are they here instead of their homeland. The answers were always economic. I know that I never came across a person who told me that fear of gangs was a reason though I know that this is an issue for many and that many are too afraid to talk about that. All of the folks who would talk to me about why they are here instead of their homeland told me that they would much rather be home but that there are no jobs at home. These people were here working so that they could send money home to their families so that their families could survive. If here in the States, if there were no jobs, no money for food or housing but we found out that there were jobs in Mexico or Brazil, would you stay here and let your family starve to death? Some will say that they would wait here until they could get in legally and that sounds like a great idea, reality though is, how long, how many years can you and your family go without food or any housing while you wait on a list?

 

Since Mr. Trump has become President he has canceled several trade agreements with our allies and friendly Nation as well as putting higher tariffs on some of their imported products. One of the agreements that Mr. Trump hates is called ‘NAFTA’ this stands for the North American Free Trade Agreement. Free non-tariff trade between all Countries in North and South America was the goal of President Bill Clinton when he was President back in the 1990’s. Should all Nations open their Borders like Chancellor Merkel envisioned for the EU? Maybe we should build Mr. Trumps Wall (with him paying for it being the Mexican Government sure isn’t going too) and shoot anyone who tries to come into our Country any way other that through a designated doorway. Maybe instead of having an allowed immigration total of 50,000 people total each year maybe we should revise this number to about 350,000 with 250,000 of that total reserved for our ‘Sister’ Nations. These are just ideas, concepts of thought, what are your ideas? I know that I don’t have all the answers to this issue but it is an important issue that isn’t ever going to totally go away until there is a true workable solution. Personally I believe that the solution is going to have to be attacked with a multinational approach. Until every government quits selling out to the huge multi-national companies and creates quality employment and living standards for their own people these human waves of disparate people will only continue, and they will only grow in numbers. Friends, what other choice do these people really have?

 

 

U.S. Government Separating Children From Parents At Border: And One Big Lie/Lyers

U.S. Government Separating Children From Parents At Border: And One Big Lie/Lyers

 

Today most of the news on the Google News site that I use is loaded with different articles about the child separation from parents at the U.S. Southern Border. One of the things I wonder about is why is this policy not being followed that same way at our Northern Border with Canada? Is this because most Canadians are white folks and most folks at our Southern Border are not white folks? Even though this is an issue that seems to be a non issue at this time maybe one of the major News Agencies will decide to look at the ‘why’ of this issue at some point. Even though this is an important issue it is not the issue that my article today is about. My article today is about what is going on at our Nations Southern Border with Mexico right now.

 

Like most all things in life, there are at least two sides to every issue, this disaster at our Southern Border is no exception. Technically any person crossing into our country at a non designated entry point is breaking the law and should be arrested. People wanting to live in a country should enter that country legally so that they do not have to always be worried about being deported. The last I heard the U.S. only allows about 55,000 people to legally migrate through the legal system so that they can become legal citizens.  That policy, that kind of a number, in my opinion should be raised to about 250,000 for all Americans, North Americans and South Americans. If the legal number was a more realistic number hopefully most people coming to the U.S Borders would choose to try to come in legally so that they could truly feel free once they started working and living here without having worry about ICE arresting them everyday.

 

I have spoken with many people from Mexico who are here illegally during my decades as a long haul truck driver (1981-2013). Constantly I heard the same thing from them, that they would rather be at home but there was no way to survive there, meaning that the Mexican economy was/is lousy. They were here trying to find a way to send money back home so that their families could afford to pay rent and to buy groceries. Some U.S. people make fun of the reality of having 10-15 Mexican people living in a two bedroom apartment, it is cruel and ignorant to make such comments even though in many cases it is true. Yet the reason you may have 10 working men living in a two bedroom living quarters is because they are pooling their money together so that they can send more money home to their wife and children. I have just been speaking of Mexican folks so far but the reality reaches to the southern end of the South American Continent. People in Central America and South America face the same issues as the poor people from Mexico face. Example, you don’t see Mexican billionaires trying to sneak across the borders do you? This issue in countries south of the U.S. is not going to change until these southern nations are able to get a good strong working economy so that their people can have livable wage jobs.  If you are living in (for example) Guatemala and you have a good paying job to where you have a nice home, good food, vehicles, clothes and the such are you really going to give it all up to try to sneak into the U.S. so that you can be a criminal under constant threat of arrest and deportation?

 

Now let us get to the point of the children being separated from their parents at the U.S. Southern Border. If you break the laws of a Nation that Nations law enforcement agencies are going to consider you to be a criminal whom they will arrest if they possibly can. Lets get away from the Border for a moment and let us look at another angle. If I am a person who lives in Chicago or New York and I commit a crime to where I am arrested and sent to a prison the law does not allow my minor children to be put into prison with me. If I don’t have someone else here in the States the government will give my children to the (DCS) Department of Children’s Services who are going to take my children and house them until they can find someone to give custody to while I am in prison. Would you want your minor children to be thrown into an adult prison with you? This policy that Donald Trump has put into place is cruel, but, what should our government, any government do in these cases?

 

Do not fall for the Trump Administration lies, this is a Presidential Policy, it is not a Law, and it is not a Law that was instituted during the Obama Administration, this one is all on the habitual liar, Donald Trump. This morning the Chief of the Department of Homeland Security Kristen Nielsen angerally told reporters that the Trump Administration has no policy in place to separate the children form their parents at the Border. Yet many documents from the DOJ and Jeff Sessions state very clearly for the security personal at the Mexican Border to do exactly that. That I know of there is no good answer for the Trump Administration to follow on this issue. They can either do what they are doing which is angering many people and is a death dart for Republicans this November in the Mid Term Elections or they can just say the heck with it and just open up the Borders to anyone who wishes to cross it. Folks, I don’t know how to be the most humane here on this issue unless North and South American Countries all totally open up their borders sort of like what the EU has done. Here is my single biggest issue with Donald Trump and his flunkies who work for him, just be honest, quit lying all the time, quit trying to blame everyone else for what you yourself are doing.

Understand Islam: Or Die Like A Pig At Your Slaughter

Understand Islam: Or Die Like A Pig At Your Slaughter

 

George W Bush on national television after the 9-11 attacks referred to Islam as a “great and peaceful religion”, do you remember this? President George W also said after his first summit with President Putin that “he had looked into Mr. Putin’s soul”, really Mr Bush? My question to you is, was Mr. W ever correct about anything? It is my personal opinion that Mr. W was the worse overall president in my life time and that is saying a lot since I was born in 1956. I believe him to be just as crooked as his daddy and his daddy before him, it is just that Mr W is/was by far the most ignorant of the three. That is I felt that Mr. W was the worse most ignorant American President ever, that is until we got Mr. ‘Coward Of The Country’ Donald Trump in the Oval Office, Mr Trump brings a whole new level to the term ignorant, stupid, dumb ass.

 

It seem that several times a week the world wakes up to more news of Islamic fundamentalist murdering more innocent unarmed human beings, always in the name of “their god”. How do you go to evening prayers and then go out and blow a plane out of the sky? People, what “god” are they praying to? It is absolutely not the God of the Bible, the New or the Old Testament. So, what in the name of all that is Holy is the people who pray to the Islamic god actually praying to?

 

Within Christianity the Scriptures over and over again teach all people to love each other and to do no harm to each other. In all of my years of going to different churches and studying of other religions I have never come across a single time where any prayers and services were directed toward killing anyone. The western world and especially here in the States the politicians and the liberal media are betraying themselves and the populace they are supposed to serve. Here in America we talk about the porous Mexican border and the people coming into this Country from the south. Here in the States the people coming here are far different from the people coming from the Middle-East. Here we are talking about economics mostly, security secondarily. But religion is not an issue with these people as most are either Christian/Catholic or of no faith system at all. None of these people are being driven by a life long religious hatred toward everything that the Bible and “the West”  represent. Very few migrants from our south are coming into our country with the sole goal of killing over 300 million people and then taking all of the property of the ones they can kill as a ‘spoil of war’. In Islam everyone will either convert and start worshiping their “god” fervently, or you are to be killed. What kind of “God” commands you to harm another person?

 

In Christianity the believers are told to go out into the world and try to convert people to Christ by the examples we live. This is for the purpose of “saving” everyone’s eternal Soul by teaching them of the love of Christ. In Christianity God’s hope is that all people will turn to Him through love before they die because the Scriptures teach us that if we die without Christ, then we will be condemned at our Judgement after we die. Our hope is that no one dies until they have had a long and healthy life tailored after the love of God. I as a Christian wish and hope that everyone on earth, including all the people who worship Allah will repent before they die. I do not even wish someone like “The Supreme Ruler” in Iran who is guilty of mass murder throughout the world to end up in Hell. As a Christian I want no one to be cast into a fire for the next trillions of years, there is no one I have ever hated that badly. The World is fighting the ideology of Islam whether you wish to be a part of it or not. This is a war that no one on the planet is safe from. You may say you are not at war with Islam, but that does not mean that Islam is not at war with you and every human being you know.

 

The “problem of Islam” will never be vanquished by human beings until the people who believe in Islam actually turn inward against itself and realize that they have been worshiping a Deity that is not a “god”. But since apx 80% of the Middle-East Islamic male believers and apx 50% of their Iman and 99% of their women can not read they will never know that they are worshiping the Devil, not God. But, until the West and America wake up and realize that this invasion, this migrant situation, is different from anything that our Southern Brothers and Sisters have been bringing across our southern border then we are dooming ourselves by allowing believers of Islam into our countries. This is because it is not a case of religious beliefs butting heads, Islam is a whole new animal for all people to have to fight against. For the western world life as we have known it is changing for the worse and that is something that the whole world and every community in it will face and many people are going to be led to slaughter like a pack of ignorant pigs if we do not wake up to reality and the truth, very soon.

That is I felt that Mr W was the worse  American President ever, until we got Mr Obama in the Oval Office. As those of you who visit this page regularly probably know that ever since Mr Obama was an Illinois Senator I have studied him, not just his words and body language but his actual deeds. For about ten years now I have been of the belief that Mr Obama is down deep in his heart a Shiite Muslim by faith and nothing that he has done since becoming our President has altered that belief, he has only strengthened this belief within me. I think that President Obama is like President W in one respect though when it comes to Islam, I think that President Obama believes that Islam is by its nature a peaceful religion. But anyone who has studied the Quran and the Hadith like Mr Obama has knows this is not so. If this is correct then Mr Obama is actually an idiot, a fool, or a traitor.
