Threatening to Leave!

Manny is at the Stove

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, February 11, 2018. Our pious friend, Mantis Manny, is at the stove this morning creating fabulous cheesy scrambled eggs for our enjoyment. I'm in front of a blender preparing spicy Bloody Marys to add to the fun. Manny and I are asking for the pleasure of your company this morning. The Dreamers have threatened Congress, and the nature of the threat is unbelievable. Please hurry over to enjoy breakfast and chat about the ridiculous. We hope to see you soon.

The Drums are Beating

to evenThanks so much for joining us this morning. I just heard that the Dreamers have threatened Congress. The threat goes like this, "If no DACA deal is reached, we are leaving the country." Does that sound like a threat to you? It doesn't to me. The Dreamers are here illegally last I heard. We always had strict immigration laws in place to regulate an orderly migration by individuals seeking to live and work here. The Dreamers' parents didn't obey the law. They brought their children here, because hopping over a wall was faster than applying for a visa. Now the so-called DACA kids have kids of their own. Once they were old enough to understand their precarious situation, they chose to stay anyway. They were, no doubt, aided and abetted by the federal government, because somewhere along the way, the Feds decided to take the law into their own hands. That particular disease spread, and states and cities decided to ignore the law, as well. The Dreamers went on living their lives. Many of them got an education. Some of them decided not to bother learning the language. Still they persisted in their desire to stay, knowing full well that they were here illegally. As time went on, things began to change. Those here illegally began to feel entitled, and that brings us to where we are today,

What is Just?

I heard illegal aliens on CNN declare that they will leave America as soon as possible if DACA isn't passed. That is a solution even if DACA is passed. Not all Dreamers come from depressed or dangerous countries. Some of the Dreamers have more than one country to return to if they are not satisfied with the deal that has yet to be passed. If this were a normal world, where common sense ruled the day, the Dreamers would leave their empty threats at the border. They really don't have any leverage. They are not in a position to demand anything. They are here illegally regardless of how they got here, and it is time to face the situation. They should keep in mind that there are thousands of immigrants just like themselves who came here legally. If I applied for entry to the United States and followed the rules, my sympathies would not lie with the Dreamers. I'm being truthful, which is not in vogue these days. I find the Dreamers fully blown sense of entitlement maddening. They are in a pickle, no doubt, but their anger is misplaced. Their parents put them in this mess, and many of these "not kids anymore" are doing the exact same thing to their children. This cycle has to end, and it will end if the Democrats stop using the Dreamers for political gain.

There is no Magic Wand

If the DACA deal is to pass, the Democrats have to stop all the histrionics, simmer down and agree to build the wall. President Trump has offered the Dreamers a jackpot of a deal. He has tripled the number of Dreamers eligible for a path to citizenship. Perhaps the Dreamers would be aware of this if our news media wasn't so corrupted. President Trump has a solution to a problem that previous administrations have been unable or unwilling to fix. His solution is compassionate and generous.

Regardless of where you stand on this issue, we can't let this problem fester and grow bigger. We have to fix it now, because if we don't, we never will. The solution goes hand in hand with protecting the rest of America. We need a wall. We need very strong border enforcement. We need to rid our nation of gangs like MS 13. We need to stop the flow of drugs into our country by the Mexican cartels. We need to put an end to sanctuary states and cities.We have to keep terrorists, thugs and murderers out, and if they are here already, we need to throw them out.

So Dreamers, stop demanding and start hoping for a common sense solution to a growing problem And if this deal goes through, and it should, learn the language, respect the flag and realize that living legally in America as a lawful and contributing citizen is a precious gift, not an entitlement.


Manny's Song

The moment I wake up

The second I stretch my wings

I say a little pray for you...

      Good Morning brad,

      You hit the nail on the head. These illegals are the future of the Democratic Party. God help us! I'm off to the Inn.

      It is like the unwanted tenant that is going to be evicted, saying if you don't stop this eviction, we are leaving the house.

      There goes all the new democrats, if they leave the country.

      Hot dogs and apple pie at the Inn, its a party.

      Dear ab,

      I wonder how have we reached the point where breaking the law is not only okay but the way to go. I live in a state whose new Governor wants to make us a sanctuary state. I think he should go to jail for usurping the rights of people like me. I'm off to the Inn.

      Dear Pino,

      Great idea. I want the wall built first, because without it we are spinning our wheels. As for Schumer and the Dems, shame on them. They are using the DACA "children" for political gain, and it is high time the illegals got the memo. I am off to the Inn. This entire subject makes me twitch!

      I agree with you Pop...100%.

      Demands have now led to ultimatums. Shame on them and shame on people like Pelosi and Schumer, because of them, they now feel emboldened, rather than remorseful about the fact that Laws have been broken.

      They are doing nothing positive for their cause, not in my book.

      POP: When it comes to making breakfast, you always get the best job: making the alcoholic beverage to go along with the meal! Lucky you!

      Chuck Shumer blew it when he would not listen to what was offered to him. We do need to resolve this and move on, as Bill stated; we need to enforce our laws, whatever they are, as well. These dreamers are not children, as the Democrats are stating, but adults. Who are they do demand anything from us? If they don't get what they want, let them go home! I don't care. But if they are allowed to stay, we should benefit from some kind of fee; even if it is small, our government should charge them something to stay and become legal. That will be interesting; I wonder how many will sign up then. At $100 per person, and 3,000,000 people that is $300,000,000 that we can use to pay down our debt. Then we need to build the wall and enforce the laws in place now. We cannot continue to do this every 30 years. I am now off to the Inn....

      Dear billy,

      I think we are in agreement. See you at the Inn.

      It's all a political game and I'm not playing. Stay, leave, I really don't care. End the confusion over laws and then enforce them. End of story, let's move on to something else.

      Dear Tom,

      What especially disturbs me is seeing many of them carrying the flag of Mexico, while trashing the country they want to stay in. I don't get it, but then I find most things happening these days to be unbelievable. See you at the Inn. I may have to take a canoe over, but I'll get there!

      Pop and Manny,

      I, like you, am both frustrated and angered by the sense of entitlement displayed by many of the "Dreamers". I do have some understanding and sympathy for the situation in which they find themselves but they need to demonstrate a modicum of humility rather than arrogance in demanding their way.
