Default So, Today Is "Day Without An Immigrant" Day

My daughter teaches at an elementary school where there are a good number of hispanic students. She calls me today and says:

"I wish everyday was "day without an immigrant day." Then we wouldn't have to spend half our day punishing these stupid kids who misbehave and we might actually get to teach."

Smart kid.

I'm seeing tons of false narratives on social media today about it.

What's worse is the people who believe those false narratives.

I'd honestly like someone to put together a nation wide list of these places.

They apparently don't need me as a customer.

FYI I've seen yard crews out and about today.

Either they didn't get the message or they like getting paid.

None of these people are rocket scientists, but they're smart enough to understand that all those who spend a majority of their time stirring up protests aren't going to reimburse them for lost wages or child care.

Local news in Birmingham listed all the businesses in the area that had to close for that. They were all Mexican restaurants or other Mexican-owned businesses.

As I've said previously, if all the illegals suddenly left the country there would be a period of adjustment. But I'd like to point out that the United States has won two World Wars, gone to the moon and back several times, invented the personal computer and cured Polio. If these people really believe that we as a nation couldn't make things work just fine without them, I want some of whatever it is they're smoking.

In other words...adios mofos!

This isn't rocket science to logically fix the problem:
  1. Seal the border (it will never be 100% but 90%+ is better than what we have now)
  2. Deport the criminal immigrants (either going to businesses to find them or they self deport)
  3. Cut off social services to the criminal immigrants (those should be available to only citizens and those legally here)
  4. Revise the law to eliminate anchor babies
  5. Revise immigration policy to allow migrant workers (if any revisions are necessary) for those jobs

We were out and about yesterday to the city and saw nothing different at all.

I can remember back a bunch of years when the "number one oppressed minority" decided to show merchants and others just how much they contribute to the bottom line.

What they did was make a big stink (with the medias help) of spouting off that on one particular day they were only going to use Susan B. Dollars and $2 bills to shop and show just how much they spend.

Of course like most of their bullshit it totally flopped. (a total non event!)

I didnt notice anything different yesterday. There is a place just around the corner from my called 'El Pablano' (I call it 'El Problemo', but anyway..) it was hopping as usual. They actually host the local schools for fund raiser nights and last night was one of them. The local FOX station had to get a story from Los Angeles to air here, because they couldn't find any effects locally but they had to keep their liberal bias intact.
