I wish I had a solution to all this mess.

I am not against immigration. I am against immigrants putting the country they left ahead of this country. Whole parts of the country are being converted into areas where English is not even spoken, let alone learned. The old country customs and way of life is pushed ahead of learning to become Americans. When this continuous influx of migrants happens, it changes the demographics of an area forever. Note I am referring to legal immigration here.

Germany is experiencing this very thing where over 30,000 refugees are being resettled. Germans are
welcoming these masses with open arms. I think five years from now they’ll wonder what in the heck they were thinking. The demographic change will be a mixture of religion and customs and
permanently change the community where they move.

This was what happened to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Thousands of Hispanic workers
moved to the area to rebuild it — and never left. What was once a predominately solid culture of Louisiana cooking and customs suddenly became a town full of taquerias.

Am I against Hispanic workers?

No, I am making a point about demographic change. Many of the immigrants who are flooding into Europe come from the Fertile Crescent region of the Earth. This is the oldest civilized area in the world and yet they are preying upon each other like black ants against red. With all of their thousands of years of history, they can’t find peace.

Today is Sept. 11, 14 years after that fateful day when Islamic jihadists attacked the United States. Now, 14 years later, we as a country are more fractured than ever. We have open season on our police departments, no faith in our politicians, and a tanking economy. If you don’t believe me, look at your savings account. I told my bride that every time our country goes to war, the country we try to liberate comes home with our troops.

When the planes hit the twin towers, you hardly saw an American man with a shaved head and a
beard. Look around you now. Today, it’s not uncommon to see a covered Muslim woman or a mosque. I can’t recall seeing either prior to the attacks.I’ve long ago figured out that skin color means nothing, but customs do. The old tried and proven Mom, apple pie, and the Bible days are a thing of the past.

The old security of a stable family is gone, as many people have been married three or more times
and have kids scattered all over. No one can have a traditional family reunion, because their ex would be there.

I guess we are all to blame for messing up our country. That’s what our political leaders want us to believe, because it sure as heckire ain’t their fault. They are hell-bent on dropping in more and more immigrants into locales that will be smothered by the sheer numbers.

According to various news sources, immigrants accounted for 13 percent of the total 316 million
U.S. residents; adding the U.S.-born children (of all ages) of immigrants
means that approximately 80 million people or one-quarter of the overall U.S. population, is either of
the irst or second generation.OK, we are talking legal immigrants only with all these numbers.
What are the chances that an illegal immigrant wants to assimilate? My guess is very low, as staying
under the radar would probably be a good strategy.

I wish I had a solution to all this mess. Hillary and Joe have come out saying they believe they can ix
what Obama has done. I’m not sure there is a reset button anyone can push. Maybe The Donald can do it.

Kelly Bordelon: The culture tide is surely shifting. There is no reset button because we are gravely outnumbered. European and American families have a birth rate of 1.8 which is below the replacement level. Muslim families have a birth rate closer to 8. Germany welcomes this influx because economically they don't have enough of their own young to support an aging population. (And all the rest of the EU - but that would be a different blog day)

We have turned from a country that accepts immigrants that only come here legally, to a country that allows illegals to pretty much come and go because the value of pandering to these future voters by liberals has been realized. We also are victims of our own ignorance. We value political correctness over learning from the past. We no longer value honor and integrity, but debauchery and lawlessness are accepted. The tail has started wagging the dog, I don't think most people are all in with what our so called lawmakers do or refuse to do but we, the majority, remain silent. Hence, we are like a snowball headed for Hell and electing more liberals of any party preference will not stop the decline.

Joyce Vowels Moody: Interesting article. I did not know that about N.O. becoming the next Mexican food influence. As I look around Baytown I sure believe it.

Roy Rogers: I think about it like this. If I do not take care of my family, teach them about Jesus Christ and maintain my home. Someone else will and it can very easily be just as devastating as what is currently going on in this country. I am authorized and responsible for my family and land by God. To love God and love people. All people! One God!

Larry Houston: If you asked a New Yorker 150 years ago what their biggest problem was, they'd probably say the influx of those darn foreigners from Ireland. 100 years ago it would have been Italians or Eastern Europeans. They move into ghettos, congregate together, speaking their native tongue -- we're going to hell in a handbasket! 3 or 4 generations later and their just Americans. I think we'll find the same thing will happen after this influx.

Bert, your column in The Baytown Sun on Friday was soo good, brother. I mean soo good.

A most welcomed epiphany

Sometimes things come to us at the oddest of times.   A thought, a word, a television program, a lyric, or something someone says...
