It's Monday so I thought I would post something from the controversial cartoon character Maxine.

Maxine On Relevant 'Logic' (TIC)
EDIT @ 11:46 PM TIC means "tongue-in-cheek"

Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in this country lately; illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida. Not me. I concentrate on solutions for the problems. It's a win-win situation.

1 Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.
2 Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levies.
3 Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

Any other problems you would like for me to solve today?

Singing OUR National Anthem in Spanish? I'm sorry, but after hearing they want to sing OUR National Anthem in Spanish - enough is too much! NEVER did they sing it in Italian, Japanese, Polish, Irish-Celtic, German, Portuguese, Greek, French, or any other language because of immigration. It was written by Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it was written. The news broadcasts gave a translation that's NOT even close. Sorry if this offends anyone, THIS IS MY COUNTRY! Do YOU sing MY National Anthem in YOUR COUNTRY IN ENGLISH ? ? ? And, because I make this statement DOES NOT mean I'm against immigration!!! YOU ARE WELCOME HERE IN MY COUNTRY. Welcome to come through like everyone else has. Get a sponsor! Get a place to lay your head! Get a job! Live by OUR rules! Pay YOUR taxes! And...LEARN THE LANGUAGE LIKE ALL OTHER IMMIGRANTS HAVE IN THE PAST!!! AND PLEASE DON'T DEMAND THAT WE HAND OVER OUR LIFETIME SAVINGS OF SOCIAL SECURITY FUNDS TO YOU TO MAKE UP FOR ''YOUR'' LOSSES. When will AMERICANS STOP giving away THEIR RIGHTS??? We've gone so far the other way, bent over backwards not to offend anyone but it seems no one cares about the AMERICAN that's being offended!

WAKE UP America!!!


  1. ekkk! But lets remember.. America is based on FREEDOM. the Freedom to learn or NOT learn any native tongue they choose! Needless to say, I don't agree with this post. BUT thats the beauty of diversity...diversity. diversity. =)

    I still love you Sis Allard

  2. Carissa - you are in the 71%...

    The latest telephone poll taken by the California Governor's office,
    asked whether people who live in California think illegal immigration is a serious problem:

    29% of respondents answered: 'Yes, it is a serious problem.'

    71% of respondents answered: 'No es una problema seriosa.'

  3. For the sake of not getting worked up, Im not going to look at the comments or re-read this post. My last comment was as tactful as I could get. And I say FULL HEARTEDLY that I am INDEED in the 71%! This country was founded on anything but beauty. It was ruthless and discriminatory.. and that comic proves how past history still is influential. If seeing translation of a "work of art" such as the National Anthem into any other language is offensive then they should consider learning Hebrew to read the Bible. I think its a POSITIVE thing that immigrants or any ethnic citizens WANT to sing the National Anthem! We should be "bending over backwards" for that type of enthusiaism! Hard cold facts: Immigrants aren't always young and have a more difficult time learning English or "white culture". Any child educated in our public schools will know English along with any Native tongue (so don't "fear" that Mexicans will learn your language).I promise that if any other country was as heavily populated by other immigrants they would be dealing with the same issues. Just my little soap box ;)

  4. Carissa - ROFL I def got your Latina blood showing. LOL Amazing what a TIC cartoon can do!!! :~)

  5. Wake up 'Americans'!!! lol We take more proud in our protecting our favorite sports teams that we do in the good ole USA.

  7. Tracie - I think you have spoken truth. I have been to several third world countries and they seem to be improving and America seems to be going backwards.

  8. Catherine - thanks for dropping by.
