AZ type illegal immigration law in Texas?

I hope for it.

There was one funny/sad/silly quote from the article by a guy named Peter Johnson, of the Peter Johnson Institute of Non-Violence. I've never heard of this guy or his supposed organization before and I don't care enough to look into it. Now for the quote:
"What I say to the African-American community: If they come in the morning for brown-skinned people, and we remain silent, they may come in the evening for us,"
How is that for a thinly veiled attempt to link the idea of stopping unlimited illegal immigration to the Nazis?

If you are a little slow this morning here is a link to explain that to you.

All I have to say to you, Peter Johnson, is that if you are here illegally then I hope someone comes and gets you and sends you back home.

Unfortunately, I don't think that kind of law has a chance of passing in Texas.

It's the law

"Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal ... are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues."
Article 67 of Mexico's Population Law

Here is the link to a nice story about how well the people of Mexico treat immigrants.

President's Budget Advisor Warns of Dangers of Huge Debts

Believe it or not. I'm not kidding. Here is the link so you can go and read for yourself.

It's shocking!!

From the article:
Orszag warned that huge deficits could cause the market to lose confidence in a government's creditworthiness.
Is he serious?

President Barack Obama's top budget adviser, Peter Orszag, said on Tuesday that the U.S. government must significantly alter its policies in order to tackle a growing mountain of debt.
We've already heard how the federal government plans to "alter it's policies in order to tackle a growing mountain of debt" haven't we? That's right - raise taxes.

I guess we'll see how well that works out for everyone.

Hard golfing President

Here is your link.

From the article:
On a cool but sun-drenched Sunday, the president and three golfing companions went to Andrews Air Force Base to play 18 holes. It is the 32nd time Mr. Obama has played golf since taking office Jan. 20, 2009, according to CBS Radio's Mark Knoller.

In contrast:
Mr. Obama has played golf far more often than former President George W. Bush. In his eight years in office, Mr. Bush played just 24 times. His last time as president was Oct. 13, 2003.
It's a rough job, but someone has to do it.

I'd never seen an eviction before

I'd heard about the LEOs coming with some movers and setting the evictiee's stuff out by the street and the neighbors coming and taking it, but I'd never seen it in person. While traveling a couple of months ago I got to see one. I couldn't resist taking pics.

In this first pic you can see the Sheriff's car and the movers setting stuff out by the curb.

Here is one of the movers finishing up. I wasn't planning on taking anything myself but you can see both of the items that I thought were worth taking in this pic - the orange extension cord on the ground to the left of the mover, and the aluminum ball bat under the chair to his right.

Wouldn't you know it, the mover took the ball bat when he left. He also picked up a mechanic's creeper.

The crowd starts to gather like vultures. Notice that the ball bat is gone.

Here is a guy trying out the merchandise before he decides if it is worth the effort to carry off.


And "SOLD" to the man with the untucked shirt.

The same guy came back and snagged the extension cord.

This was clearly too much stuff to carry off by hand.

A few minutes later a car showed up as well.

Pickups are great for hauling off the stuff your neighbors leave behind.

The van came back for a second load.

"Now what do we do? Our new love seat won't fit in the van."

"Just carry it home."

And away they go.

I wonder if one of these people hurt their back if they would sue whoever filed the eviction.

You've got to have a chair to match the love seat.

This person just needed a new trash can.

This woman got her child into the act. The kid is steering while mom pushes the Power Wheels home.

It was really busy.

The family that was evicted were illegals. They had lived there for years and most of the time they had 3 other families of illegals living with them in that 3 bedroom house. With the economy doing badly the other families had gone back to Mexico and the one family couldn't afford the mortgage by themselves. Almost all of the neighbors are illegals and most are not far from this same situation.

Two years ago there were at least 3 families living in every house on the street and 4 in most of them. Cars were parked bumper to bumper on both sides of the street and bumper to bumper on both sidewalks. That culdesac would typically have 6 to 8 cars parked in it at night and if you drove in you had to do a 3 point turn to get back out. The bad economy has actually improved this neighborhood because a lot of the illegals have gone back to Mexico and there is only one family in most of the houses now.

I assume that the stuff in these pics is what the evictees decided wasn't worth moving or giving away. About 5pm almost all of the stuff was gone. The movers came back about 6pm or so and cleaned up the remaining stuff and took it away. All of the stuff that was left would have fit in a 55 gallon drum, but it was nice that they came back to keep that from blowing around and trashing up everyone else's yard. When they were done you couldn't tell that anything had happened.

Months later the house is still vacant. Someone mowed the grass but I don't know if it was a neighbor who got tired of looking at it or if the city mowed it. I guess that the one thing that changed is that nobody is living there for free.

At the farm with #3

A few weeks ago I took #3 son to the farm and he got to do a little shooting. Most of the time he could hit close enough to a can or plastic bottle at 10-12 yards to make it move. Not bad for a 6yo.

If you look at the upper right part of that little dust cloud you can see the can in the air.

While we were there I got a few pics of a dirt devil.

In the first pic it looks like a red smudge against the sky and a light brown line on the ground to the left of the shed, just below the horizon.

You can see it a little better in this one. The dark object in the lower left corner is the cab of a fair sized farm tractor. The white object near that is the top edge of a portable fuel tank. This little twister was fairly high.

In this pic you can see a tumble weed caught in it, near the right edge at ground level. We were glad it was way over there.

All in all it was a fun weekend.

I got the garden plowed last weekend

But we haven't had time to do anything else with it. Today there was gentle rain which would have been great but we don't have plants in the ground, yet.

It measures about 50-60' by 70-80'. I didn't measure it, paced it off and made an estimate.

Now if we can just get something in the ground.

Broody Hen

It seems that we've got a White Leghorn hen that has gone broody.

I guess it isn't a problem. We've been planning on hatching some chicks but things keep interfering and it will probably be another month before we can put a batch in the incubator. I'm hoping that this hen can hatch some chicks for us, but we don't have spare cage to put her in by herself. Right now that pen has 5 hens and a rooster. Currently, all the hens lay in the same spot and that is where Miss Broody has set up housekeeping. I don't know if this will cause any issues. One possible problem I see is that when broody gets up to eat or drink the other hens can come in and drop more eggs and pretty soon there will be too many for her to sit on.

Maybe we can use a pencil or something to mark the eggs in the current batch and if the other hens lay more eggs in the nest then we can tell them apart and take only the new eggs.

My wife would just as soon not hatch any more Whites. She doesn't like them because they are too high strung and the roosters are mean, which are both valid points. The Black Australorps are so gentle that even my four year old daughter can walk in and pick up any of them including the roosters. My better half likes that, and since they seem to lay about as well as the Whites I guess she has a point. The Rhode Island Red hens seem to be about as gentle as the Black's, but we don't have a Red rooster so I don't know if they are as gentle as the Blacks. I'd like a Red rooster, but you can't order just one so I'll have to ask around locally to see if anyone has one.

I just like to have some variety. I suspect that different breeds may have better resistance to different ailments which could be an advantage, but I don't know if that is really true.

If anyone has advice on broody hens please let me know.

Letters telling governors to resign. Can you imagine?

Link 1

Link 2

Of course they have to be described as white, racist, right wing extremists. Like nobody saw that coming. I'd like to know how they discovered that.

I love this quote from the first link:
In the past year, federal agents have seen an increase in "chatter" from an array of domestic extremist groups, which can include radical self-styled militias, white separatists or extreme civil libertarians and sovereign citizens.
I would LOL if it wasn't such an obvious effort disparage people who have just about had enough expansion of the federal and state governments.

Billboards against Hussein

I just wish that I'd thought of this myself.

You can help fund one of the following billboards:

The LWM "news" site where I heard about this had it's panties in a bunch over how this "pushed the limits of freedom of speech and freedom of expression". LOL.

OH NO!! Someone doesn't worship at the feet of Hussein. That's right up there with shouting "FIRE" is a crowded theater or shouting "GUN" at a Dunkin' Donuts.

I don't care much for billboards but if you have to see one I guess this is about as good as it gets. Well, maybe not as good as one advertising for a gun show, but it's pretty good as billboards go.
