For those of you that know me, I’m sorry and you should skip ahead. Those of you that dont know me, allow me to tell you a little about me.
I’m a smart ass by nature, I always have something to say and it’s usually not appropriate. In my mid 30′s living in the Detroit Metro area, I’ve see a lot in my days, done even more. I would consider myself a champagne guy on a beer budget. Avid sports fan, and player. Enough of me, lets get into some rants shall we.
I will try to keep my rants current but will go back in time every now and then.
The other morning my day began as it usualy does, with my cats waking me up an hour before I have to be. They have learned over the years to stay away from arms reach, you would think they would learn how to tell time.
After roughly 45 minutes of throwing anything I could find at them, I rise to start my day. The cats think they’ve won, but I have thumbs, they dont. I win.
I’ll skip the morning pleasantries and fast foward to my drive. I decide, like most Amercians, that coffee is a must. I won’t name the establishment I visited, lets just say America runs on them.
I pull into the drive through and place my order, I’d like a large black coffee please. She replies with something I only guess was in her native tongue, I pull up. Once at the window, the next person I deal with tells me my total is $4.90. For a coffee? I notice he has an iced coffee and a bag he’s prepared to hand me. I repeat myself and tell him I ordered a large black. No ice?, was his response, he leaves the window and returns with yet another question. Bacon, egg, cheese? Now I’m frustrated and I get a tad short. Finally the order is straight and I’m on my way to work.
Now I’m all for immigration, without it we’d be living overseas and the metric system wouldnt be so strange. However, when our ancestors came to this country they assimilated, learned the language, fought to defend their new found freedom. They became this country and made it what it is today. They didnt have special interest groups telling the government we want this, we want that. They didnt think this country owed them something, if anything they thought they owed the country. Now a days, most (not all) flee their respective countrys in search of whatever, but they dont have the same values our ancestors had.
The laws of Amercia are meant to protect the public and they apply to everyone. Just because you’re from a foregin land, it still applies to you. Please, by all means become a citizen of this great land. If you choose to live here illegally, don’t cry when you get deported because your childern were born here and they’ll be alone. Think of your kids and do it the right way. Illegal means illegal. It’s against the law, you’re not a citizen, you have no rights.
English, please learn it. If I were to move into your native land, I would almost certianly have to learn your language, as the local government would NOT cater to me. I have friends that have came to Amercia from Mexcio and Croatia. They speak great english as well as their native language.
I could go on and on, but hell, I have a blog now, I can post another bitch down the road.
