What a bunch of . . . .

Two-and-a-half years ago I was driving home from work going east on Research Parkway. It was cold and dark as the time had already changed making for one of those, “can’t believe it’s dark already” evenings.  About two blocks east of Highway 83 I come across a pick-up truck pulling a trailer stopped in the right-hand lane. It’s one of those Chevy 1500 series two door pick-ups and the trailer has a large (more like gigantic)  plastic water tank on it, plus a lawn mower, leaf blower, some rakes and ladders.  There are two guys standing there looking a bit helpless, and amidst the 10 or 20 cars of traffic I manage to move over and stop in front of their truck and turn on the flashers. I get out to talk to the two guys, who are both Mexican, and I ask them what’s wrong. One doesn’t speak English and the other . . . just barely. He says that they are out of gas and would like for me to take him to a gas station. Well, the truck’s flashers don’t work and having the truck stalled there in the dark was creating a bit of havoc for the rush-hour commuters. So, I tell him that I’ll tow his truck and trailer to the nearest gas station. I get out my 20,000 lb. tow strap and trailer hitch shackle and hook up his rig. The guy who can speak some English gets in my truck and his partner steers their truck. We go about two miles and get into the Albertson’s gas station which happens to be on Union and close to home. I pull them up to the pump, disconnect and we say goodbye. I didn’t think much of it.

I think that this illegal immigration stuff is getting ridiculous, and it made me remember the story above. If you’re pro legal immigration, but not pro illegal immigration, you’re labeled as anti-immigration or worse . . . a racist! What a bunch of BS. People living in our country illegally, protesting for rights? What the heck! I can certainly understand being able to make a decent living in our country, which is nearly impossible in all of those socialist leaning countries south of the border, as a good reason for coming here. But, to make demands on us when they don’t show any respect for our rule of law seems outrageous. What say you?

    agree. it’s out of control completely. and i keep thinking about all those people who came here and jumped through all the hoops to become “legal”–i’d be so angry that these people will just be handed the status without having to do anything at all. i saw on tv not so long ago how people were raising the American flag–only they put the Mexican flag up fist and then the American one, all i thought was, “and you think this is going to HELP your cause???” all our ancesters came here and went through all the red tape and learned the language, etc, but these people think they don’t need to do that. (nor do the ones helping them). I’m tired of hearing about it and it is indeed a bunch of BS. (and these are only the simple thoughts on the matter).
