1. QUICK!! HOW TO BECOME A U.S. CITIZEN!
- That # 1 means we have one full 24-hour period left before we know.
The Spruce Tunnel may go silent for a day or two afterwards. I feel like I did on the operating table, ready to go into the operating room. Everyone smiling, alert, attentive. I was in pain and I needed the operation to save my life. I remember thinking that in just a few short hours this will all be over with, one way or the other. The outcome was out of my hands now.
Turns out I had an incompetent surgeon and ended up with peritonitis which almost took my life.
At least the surgeon was not malicious and out to defeat me.
Or defraud me.
Once there was a young mixed-race man who was running for office in Illinois:
His real name was Barry, Barry Soetoro, but it was thought that the name “Barack” and the name “Obama” would appeal better to the African-hyphen-Americans who lived in South Chicago and would vote for him. He was already reported to be born in Kenya — the real Africa.
The National Public Review got in on it too, a liberal publication we call NPR.
Part of his bio:
A visit to the continent of his birth:
Oh, gosh, I have so many of these . . . They were so proud of their Junior Senator:
Kenya, Kenya, Kenya, in all these articles. Foreign born. Disqualifies him to ever become a president of the United States.
Childhood education in Malaysia, raised as a Muslim there.
He never did quite learn American culture. So much he doesn’t know about our history! Declares several times that we have 57 states in our country. Not once; a misspeak. In several speeches. He should stick to a teleprompter.
So what does he know about American citizenship? “Plenty,” as it turns out.
The question was posed to him:
“Many of the millennials, Dreamers, undocumented citizens – and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country – are fearful of voting. So if I vote, will Immigration know where I live? Will they come for my family and deport us?”
If an undocumented illegal alien votes, will there be trouble?
Nope. Because …
“The reason is when you vote, you are a citizen yourself and there is not a situation where the voting rolls are somehow transferred over and people start investigating et cetera. The sanctity to vote is strictly confidential.”
What does “voting rolls … transferred over” mean? What is “sanctity to vote”?
Anyway, when you vote you are a citizen. How do you think illegal “undocumented ” foreigners will understand his answer?
The lady who asked the question knew just what she meant. Her understanding of being a citizen is: “And I call them citizens because they contribute to the country.” Huh?
They tell us “We are a nation of immigrants.”
We are a nation of legal immigrants.
Lots of foreigners are welcome, but not all. We are a nation consisting of legal immigrants. Citizens and legal immigrants.
Used to be.
Election 2016: Be specific. Be accurate. Be informed.
Just one 24-hour period of time left to the U.S. Fuzzy thinking can kill off a nation.. Not being specific can be deadly.
Just remember my incompetent surgeon. He was rather unfocused during my surgery. See, he was due in an hour or so to get on a plane and begin his vacation – in Hawaii!
