  • Man Carl, you need to calm down and take another source of transportation. You're going to have a heart attack and it's not worth it. They are entitled to their opinion. You may have to get a t-shirt that reads, "I am an American and Damn Proud of it, You Idiots!" And on the back, "GROW UP!"

    And make sure that you have an American flag in the background one the front of the shirt.

    Cheers :cool: Hondo

  • Cheers Chester, Hondo,

    Chester, is that Alex Jones the one that has that latenight radio sprogram called: Joes Overnight? If so? I like him though I have not listened to any of his programs since 2003-not because I might disagree with him on anything-jut that I basically quit listening to the radio so lat at night at that time ;-))

    Hondo, if I could? I would take other transport-trouble is, is I dont have a car, cant afford a taxi, and their tiny train system finally got up and running just last week and costs $6 for a day pass. I plan on taking it in April just to see what the big deal is? but that will probably be the only time I will ride their train. ;-)) I dont hate trains-just cant afford their ticket prices-at least often enough to make it worth while.

    Something else hate about Austin is that it seems as if the State Prisons send all newly released inmates here and all hey do is ugly up this town by standing on almost every interesction begging for money though most of them are already collecting Social Security and other money from other sources. Tjey ALL are running a huge scam-and every bum I have met out there-has a better cellphone than I do and most of them als have Blackberrys. I can just barely afford my cellphone. Oh and, I overheard several financial discussions between bums on the bus at various time and was astounded at how much they make per day begging. One admitted to making $45 in 20 minutes. Another said she made $150 in about 2 hrs. Most of these bums smoke , get drunk and if they can afford to smoke and drink and have cellphones, then they dont need to be begging and need to get a job.

    These bums also play the entire charity system for everything they can get. Free shelter, food, medical care, clothing, money, bus passes, and God knows what else? I have been thinking of making my own cardboard sign and go stand on a busy corner-not to beg for a penny-but to let all those who pass by-that they are all being scammed by these bums and to also warn them that abouy 90% or more of them out there are former inmates. I know that because I can tell which have been in prison by several things such as-the way they act, the tattoos they have, the way they dress etc-plus most of them making it known o everyone who rides the bus (because they all are loudmouths without any manners and who think the world owes them everything) because they all talk louder than everyone else on the bus.

    I have also had runins with two bums already. One was at the library I go to to use the computer and this jerk saw me trying to get help from a librarian on something-stepped right between us and hit me with his shoulder and he said Uh-didnt you see me coming? to which I said something negative-in German, and he touched my shoulder and I turned around and told him to get his paw off my shoulder or I would rip out his tonsils.

    The 2nd incident happened just this Monday. I was at a bus stop waiting for the 1-M-and was located in front of a Walgreens. Well, a bum was sitting in the middle of the bench and has his stuff spread out on eithe rside of himself and there was no room to sit down and I didnt feel like sitting anyway but-this bum was eating a large icecream cone he just bought from walgreens and threw the wrapper right on the ground at his feet even though he was within reach of the large green trashcan place to the left of the bench for the purpose of intaking trash. He saw me glancing at him-knowing all too well why I was doing so, didnt say anything but glared at me-which made me angry then I flat out stared at this freak. Well, the freak got up from the bench purposely leaving his garbage on the ground-and walked away as I said: You forgot to pick up your trash and deposit it into the trashcan. He said: Its not my trash and continued to walk away. I then said he really ought to think agout doing the right thing and pick up after his sloppy self.

    He turned around and glared at me-I already had my keychain and keys in my right hand as well as keys sticking out between my fingers ready to rumble-just in case.

    He saw I was serious and said he wasntt picking up ""someone elses garbage"" and I said, dude-I saw you take the wrapper off that icecream cone-procede to throw the lid and the wrapper on the ground right in front of where you say-while fastly engulfing that snack. Then I said its no wonder you cant make it on the outside and will soon be back in prison to which it said-ive never been in prison-which we bth knew was a gross lie.

    I grabbed my cellphone and faked calling the cops to report this freak littering and he was scared nough to go quickly behind WGs and only came to the busstop when it saw the bus arive that we both needed. It just so happened that we both got off at the same busstop-it apparently was scurrying home and I was going for a cheap meal at Ryans Restaurant-which is owned by Nolan Ryan) and it scurried like a rat as quickly as it could across the street, I took my time and made it without anyone having to brake for me-and proceded to Ryans. It had already had about a 100 or so yard lead on me. I walked past a fence and saw it walking to the back of Ryans all the while looking over its shoulder at me then it ran I guess because it thought I was following it when I was merely heading towards Ryans entrance.

    Nope, I cant tolerate these people and most of them are nothing like what Mr Jones is.

    Sorry for my long storu but thats what I see daily.

  • Mexico is angry!


    The shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from Sonora don't like it.
    Can you believe the nerve of these people? It's almost funny.


    State of Sonora is angry at influx of Mexicans into Mexico .


    Nine state legislators from the Mexican state of Sonora traveled to Tucson
    to complain about Arizona 's new crackdown on illegals from Mexico .



    It seems that many Mexican illegals are now returning to their hometowns and
    the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off about it.


    A delegation of nine stat e legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday
    to say Arizona 's new illegal alien sanctions law will have a
    devastating effect on the Mexican state.


    At a news conference,
    the legislators said Sonora - Arizona 's southern neighbor, made up of
    mostly small towns - cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools it
    will face as illegal Mexican workers here return to their hometowns without
    jobs or money.


    The law punishes individuals who don't have valid legal documents to live
    and work in the United States .


    The Mexican
    legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their
    hometowns, placing a burden on the ir state government.


    'How can they pass a law like this?' asked Mexican Rep. Leticia
    Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales .

    'There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or
    relative working in Arizona ,' she said, speaking only in Spanish.


    ' Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face
    as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and sending money to their
    families return to hometowns in Sonora without jobs,' she said. 'We are one
    family, socially and economically,' she said of the people of Sonora and
    Arizona .

    WRONG!



    The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico , and its
    taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico 's citizens.


    It's time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop
    parasitically feeding off of the United States and to start taking care of
    its/their own needs.


    Too bad all the U.S. states don't pass a law just like Arizona or better yet
    the federal government actually enforce our Immigration Laws. Maybe that's the
    answer, since our own Congress will not do anything!



    New Immigration Laws:
    Read to the bottom or you will miss the message...


    1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
    * * * * * * * *
    2. All ballots will be in this nation's language.

    * * * * * * * *
    3.. All government business will be conducted in our language.
    * * * * * * * *
    4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are
    here.

    * * * * * * * *
    5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
    * * * * * * * *
    6 Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food
    stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any burden will
    be deported.

    * * * * * * * *
    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least
    equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

    * * * * * * * *
    8. If foreigners come here and buy land... Options will be restricted.
    Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens
    naturally born into this country.

    * * * * * * * *
    9.. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a
    foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his
    policies. These will lead to deportation.

    * * * * * * * *
    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted
    &, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All
    assets will be taken from you.

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    TOO STRICT?




    The above laws are current immigration laws ofMEXICO !!!

    These sound fine to me. NOW, how can we get these laws to be America 's immigration laws??

  • i just don't like politics in one form or another.



    There's no one who detests politicians more than I do, rk, but the laws that politicians pass affect every single person within their jurisdiction so it's imperative for citizens of every country to familiarize themselves with both politics and politicians.

    I suggest you read this column - the ideas expressed therein are applicable to everyone who values personal freedom, not just Americans.

    i agree with some of the things you have said stumpy,but any politicians i know promises you the world when there up for election and if they get appointed into goverment all there interest in is to fill there own pockets.as for our goverment we might as well have the marx brothers in office.they will past what ever law they want and feck the people who oppose them.

  • We the people can stop all those lies. We have the constitution and besides we hold the purse strings. The problem is getting people involved. Some folks don't care until something directly affects them but I assure you it will sooner than later. Headlines today world stocks down amid worries over U.S. economy. Cloward and piven is at work bring the US economy down and blame capitalism for all ills directing into socialistic Government. It's happening right before our eyes.

    Mister you better find yourself another line of work, cause this one sure DON"T fit your PISTOL!
