Montezuma's Revenue

That title was supposed to be Montezuma’s Revenge, but sometimes typos happen for a reason. Anyway, Happy Cinco de Maio, plus one.

I’ve been wondering when Fox News is going to grow a spine and stand up to these immigration activists? They seem to have caught the racism disease, afraid any refutation of allowing millions of illegal Mexican immigrants into the U.S. and granting them instant citizenship somehow translates into racism.

Just a few facts would settle the matter.

In 1845, Texas voted to become part of the United States (a prescient move on their part). The next year, the Mexican War began when Mexican immigrants settled on this side of the border in a passive-aggressive attempt to bring Texas back into the Mexican fold.

Mexico was completely unable to govern the vast Spanish-held territories north of its border, up to and including California. The country had neither the resources, the population, nor the political experience to manage such a vast expanse of land, and the United States did.

Californians are vowing to boycott the state of Arizona. This threat comes from a financially and morally bankrupt state with the highest population of illegal immigrants, the greatest number of tax-paying defectors from its own borders (particularly businesses), and the highest debt in the nation.

It is also a state notorious for its advocacy of drug use, among other immoral activities.

Are we supposed to be impressed? Or quaking in our boots? Are we actually supposed to “return” allegedly “stolen” territory to a corrupt, bankrupt country? Are we supposed to pretend that these are law-abiding citizens (whose first act is to violate our immigration laws)?

Wake up, America, and Fox News: it’s all about the drugs.

On April 12, the State Department issued an updated warning about Mexico, particularly the northern border states.

According to the State Department website:

“While millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year (including tens of thousands who cross the land border daily for study, tourism or business and nearly one million U.S. citizens who live in Mexico), violence in the country has increased. It is imperative that U.S. citizens understand the risks in Mexico, how best to avoid dangerous situations, and who to contact if victimized. Common-sense precautions such as visiting only legitimate business and tourist areas during daylight hours, and avoiding areas where prostitution and drug dealing might occur, can help ensure that travel to Mexico is safe and enjoyable.

“Recent violent attacks have prompted the U.S. Embassy to urge U.S. citizens to delay unnecessary travel to parts of Durango, Coahuila and Chihuahua states (see details below) and advise U.S. citizens residing or traveling in those areas to exercise extreme caution. Drug cartels and associated criminal elements have retaliated violently against individuals who speak out against them or whom they otherwise view as a threat to their organizations. These attacks include the abduction and murder of two resident U.S. citizens in Chihuahua.

“Mexican drug cartels are engaged in violent conflict - both among themselves and with Mexican security services - for control of narcotics trafficking routes along the U.S.-Mexico border. To combat violence, the Government of Mexico has deployed military troops throughout the country. U.S. citizens should cooperate fully with official checkpoints when traveling on Mexican highways.”

The warning goes on to caution that the powerful drug dealers – with armies or militias the size of small states – will kill anyone who gets in their way or even voices opposition to them.

The state of Arizona has made the mistake of enforcing illegal immigration laws and wrought the ire of Liberal and immigration activists nationwide. Unlike the Tea Parties, they’ve caused riots and committed vandalism.

They fly under the banner of righteous indignation against racism and mask their true colors. California, in particular, is up in arms. The Golden State has more illegal Mexican immigrants than any other state in the nation, and also has a bad reputation for drug abuse.

San Francisco has issued a boycott of all things Arizona. “Weed, the People” is their creed.

Unfortunately, Fox News gave more coverage to the May Day rallies than they deserved. Obviously well-organized and well-funded, they dictated the agenda, placing all the blame on “racist” Americans who insist that immigrants to this country earn the privilege (what's the saying:  the best defense is a good offense?).

It’s no coincidence that California leads the way in another legalization effort – the push to legalize marijuana. They tout it as a harmless drug, no different, no more “addictive” than cigarettes or alcohol. Their political action organizations have produced many “scientific” studies dispelling the notion that this drug is harmful, except for its carcinogenic properties.

Among the many proponents of the legalization of pot is our old nemesis, George Soros. Glenn Beck, take note. Reportedly a former cocaine addict (?), Glenn could probably add real drug education to his education agenda. If anyone can wake America up, it’s Glenn.

A pot proponent once challenged me to use the stuff. “How do you know what it’s like if you don’t try it?” went the sneering argument.

“I don’t need to try it to know what its effects are,” I replied. “I can see what it’s done to you.”

How anyone can not see that they’re being sold a bill of goods with marijuana is just beyond me. They might as well take that $20 bill and light it up. You could say the same thing, of course, about cigarettes and booze. But then again, I don’t do those, either.

I can think of better ways to waste my money.

The appeal to Liberals is obvious. We know they’re hopeless. I can’t understand Conservatives who do this stuff, though. Don’t they realize they’re helping to fund the Liberal agenda? And create that army of mind-numbed robots Rush Limbaugh always speaks of?

The first thing to go when smoking pot is the judgment center. It’s practically instantaneous. And because there are no after affects, as with booze (hangovers) and cigarettes (cancer), it’s hard to convince users what’s wrong with it.

It’s very simple – the stuff turns you into a simple-minded idiot. Just add water, and poof – you’re a fool. You turn your brains into instant oatmeal. You’ll agree to anything, anytime, anywhere. And because that’s the only seeming side affect, you’re good to go the next time.

Some people go on to bigger and badder stuff. Others don’t. It’s strictly a game of Russian Roulette. People just can’t seem to resist playing chicken, to see who blinks first. Yeah, go ahead, take another toke, Dude. It won’t kill ya. Heh, heh, hehhh.

And if you go voting for someone like Obama, it’s just a big bonus. For the Liberals. Now, they’ve not only got your money, but they’ve got your vote. You’ve fallen for it, hook, line, and sinker.

You don’t think illegal immigrants should be given amnesty, made instant citizens? Well, let’s think it over a little campfire weed. You’ll be seeing it their way in no time, you big goofball. It’s all in fun, like binge drinking.

Except, when you overdrink, you wake up with a hangover. When you do a few puffs, you wake up with a bunch of illegal immigrants for neighbors, armed with submachine guns to protect their drug trade.

And you’re doing the Mexican Hat Dance with them.
