Our great grandfathers, grandfathers, fathers, brothers and sisters watched as their friends died in the Civil War, WWI, WW II, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Every one of them died defending the U.S. flag.
In Texas , a student raised a Mexican flag on a school flag pole; another student took it down. Guess who was expelled...the kid who took it down. Kids in high school in California were sent home this year on Cinco de Mayo because they wore T-shirts with the American flag printed on them.
I'm standing up because the hundreds of thousands who came here legally and helped make this a great country, those that have died fighting for our freedom, and for the U.S. flag and all it stands for and shame on anyone who tries to make this out to be a racist message. Hear me now or hear me later.
THIS IS OUR COUNTRY!
Now I can hear many of you already. Just because I make these statements does not mean I'm against immigration. Hell, many of our parents and grandparents, including mine, were immigrants. They came here legally, longed to become Americans and made great sacrifices to be part of the people that built the US up to a great nation. They were welcome then and I welcome any others here in our country....LEGALLY
1. Get a sponsor. Our parents and grandparents did it and it worked wonders!
2. Get a place to lay your head. Even our worst places are probably better than where you came from so stop complaining that we owe you a roof over your head and for Pete’s sake stop doing your bodily business in our parks and public areas.
3. Get a job! This is a prerequisite to living in a free country, the requirement that you contribute your creative mind, labor, talents or whatever God gave you to make a success of yourself.
4. Live by OUR rules. One more requirement for living in a free country is to accept those rules as if they were your own, THEY ARE NOW. You came here because you liked our way of life better than where you were born so adopt & adapt and live by the rules that enticed you to suffer whatever inconveniences you had to in order to get here in the first damned place.
5. Pay your Taxes. We all dislike it and most of us feel it is too much to begin with but we do so to support the health of our free nation. We hope we never have to rely on this money and we accept and are proud to help the elderly, disabled and poor. Those poor by circumstances, our taxes are there to pull you up but not carry you. Those poor by choice, well chump, you chose it, live it and love it. No free lunch for me, no free lunch for you.
6. Learn the language like successful immigrants have in the past. Look how many of those have gone on to become professionals, inventors and investors, leaders of business, business owners, educators, millionaires, hell even billionaires. If you're one of those that think printing things in your language is helpful, think again. The immigrants who learn English go on to become whatever they want and live the American Dream. Those that do not are held in a tight circle relegated to the jobs where they can converse in their own language and exist on whatever work is available. The less English you know the more guaranteed you will be to live on a lowly job where you can be held down and controlled. Those bleeding hearts and government hucksters aren't looking so nice now are they?
Think of it like war. Imagine if you wanted to control a group of people, what would you do regarding language? RIIIIGHT, you would use code and every imaginable measure to prevent them from learning your language. See any correlation here?
7. Please don't demand that we hand over our hard earned and paid tax dollars, disability or social security savings to you. If you contributed your fair share, you are welcome to it when the time comes like all other Americans. If you did not, we owe you nothing….see point #3
