how many more?

friday, november 26th, 2021

The numbers are staggering. Should we call them invaders instead of migrants, since that word better describes the hordes of humanity coming across what used to be our southern border, a border that has been effectively erased? In March, the COVID positivity rate for those breaching our border was about 6 percent. Many of these people cannot speak English and have few job skills other than manual labor. Recently, a convicted sex offender was one of 35 migrants arrested in Texas for entering the country illegally. An Afghan evacuee has been charged with raping a woman in Missoula, Montana. We are beyond a crisis and are now experiencing a disaster.

"They're Coming to America".

The overwhelmed Border Patrol reports nearly 200,000 encounters with migrants in July, alone. It was the highest monthly total in more than two decades. This doesn't include the "gotaways," which some estimate are as high as 400,000. According to the Brookings Institute, the number of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. as of 2019, ranged from 10.5 to 12 million, or about 3.2 percent to 3.6 percent of the population. The numbers have grown considerably since then.

They are not finished coming. Why should they stop when coyotes and other traffickers promise free stuff courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer? Last Saturday morning, as many as 4,000 migrants broke through a clearly ineffective Mexican National Guard roadblock in Tapachula, Mexico. They were on their way to Mexico City. The U.S. was their final destination. I'd like to know who is paying for their transportation, food, and signs written in both Spanish and English for the TV cameras? Some signs praise resident Biden. No longer limited to Latin countries, the latest wave includes Haitians.

The Left is coming for your Rights.

We have heard promises by former President 0bama and resident Biden about their pledge to "fundamentally transform America." Is this what they mean? Why don't they tell us what their new America will look like and then put it to voters in the next two elections to see if they agree?

The image of migrants recently flown in the dead of night from Texas to Westchester, New York, and Jacksonville, Florida, does not speak well of the administration's motivation. It reminded me of the Baltimore Colts football team sneaking out of that city for Indianapolis some years ago because they wanted to avoid the bad publicity some apparently thought the move would bring to management. As the Scripture says, "Men love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil." (John 3:19)

If those tearing down statues, re-writing or spinning history to fit contemporary political goals, and treating parents of children in public schools as the enemy have the ruining of the America most of us love as their objective – even with flaws we have worked hard to fix – they are well on their way to a nefarious victory.

None of this would likely have occurred if the Biden administration were not so spiteful about Donald Trump that it refused to finish the border wall so that we could slow the migrant flow and direct migrants to areas where their asylum claims could be properly assessed.

America is fragile. Its values must be renewed in every generation, or we risk losing them. What is happening at what used to be our southern border is a scandal and a disgrace. Administration officials need to enforce the laws they took an oath to uphold.

The next election cannot come soon enough, but if the flow continues at the current, or a greater pace, it may be too late to reverse the harm being done.

[America has been, since 1965, Balkanized by inflows of criminal illegal alien filth, and continues to this day, and for the foreseeable future. At this rate, we are so infiltrate, diluted and compromised that we may never recover form 50-60 million unassimilated aliens, NOT "migrants". If they all had the same kind of uniform on, we'd look like a country under occupation by a foreign power. The EU has allowed this to happen, and several countries there -- Germany, France, UK, netherlands, Sweden etc -- will fall to the unassimilated barbarians, just as Rome did in 410 AD. No surprise there.]

A Day In The Life.

Up at 8:30a on Friday, I went thru my finger stick to check my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) and recorded it on my Diabetes 2 chart, took a Tramadol for my low back/hip and leg pain, made coffee and held-off on breakfast, had a couple smokes in the semi-cool garage and checked the leftover errands list. It was sunny, a brisk 39° morning, and snow flurries in the forecast, for the day. I decided not to go food shopping today -- I'll let that go until Monday or Tuesday -- and just go south to the cleaners to p/u shirts and drop-off a Pendleton Board Shirt to get a cuff mended. I just don't feel like messing with the busy Friday Weis Market traffic today. I turned on the "Chris Plante Show" and got one of his favorite subs, whom I don't care for. I left at 10:45a.

Never, ever
read the
InterNet comments.

Back at 12noon, I unpacked and took a 10mg Valium on top of the Tramadol, to help with the pain, and that helped. Checking next week's schedule, I saw that it'd be a busy week, and hopefully the major snowstorm and cold wouldn't impact us this far south in PA.

Well, the corrupt, leftist-controlled US House finally passed the "Build Back Better Act" crap Fuck You America, Act, by a 220-209 margin early this morning. It's NOT a $1.75 Trillion Bill; it's a $4.6+ Trillion Bill, when scored by the CBO.

Skipping breakfast, I had Eggs Benedict for lunch, listened to the "Dan Bongino Show", which I don't like, but other than watching 17 channels on TV, it was a concise summary of the case's conclusion.

And the "Kenosha Kid", Kyle Rittenhouse, has been found, by a jury, NOT GUILTY/ACQUITTED ON ALL COUNTS! Perhaps there is some faint hope for our crippled, badly-broken "Legal System" to morph back into a functioning "Justice System". Hopefully, this is a start. Remember, Kenosha (KPD) and Wisconsin Nat'l Guard (WNG), SHOOT & KILL ALL RIOTERS, LOOTERS AND ARSONISTS ON SIGHT! Need some help? Call me, and I'll bring some serious firepower to the scene.

I had Garlic Butter Shrimp w/ Angel Hair Pasta for dinner, watched TV until 11p, and called it a day.

After sleeping-in until 10a on Saturday, it felt like half the day was already gone. I fired-up the furnace, as it was only 41°, but sunny and warming-up. I had coffee and breakfast after doing the daily finger stick. No Tramadol today, as the Sciatica in my right hip and leg were noticeably absent. Yes! After a ouple of errands, I had lunch and puttered around the condo, doing some condo chores and a load of laundry. All TV was focused on the Rittenhouse shooting, and I tired of that quickly. After dinner, I watch FNC's coverage of the trial, and wrapped-up the evening early, at 10p.

Up at 8:15a on Sunday, it was a sunny but cold 37°, so I fired-up the furnace, as usual to 68°, had a couple smokes in the garage, did the finger stick, made coffee and breakfast, and got ready for the F1 Qatar Race at 9. Good race. I had one errand to run, to Rite Aid to p/u 4 Rxs, and after that did laundry and chores around the condo, until dinner. The Blackened Salmon w/ Rice, Green Beans & Sliced Peaches was good.

Just after dinner, I heard the sad news story, "A car plowed through the Waukesha Christmas Parade and people are injured and killed, according to witnesses", so I checked the TV news and followed the FR thread on-and-off, all evening, until it petered-out. The corrupt, lying leftist scumbag media lied their asses off. It was a black militant racist/ black supremacist who did it; some criminal, punkassed scumbag, named Darrell E. Brooks.

Since I had the cleaning lady coming tomorrow -- my regular Thursday cleaning is this Thanksgiving Day, so I took an earlier day -- I decided to get some sleep, and unplugged at 11p.

My alarm went off at 0-Dark-Thirty (6a) on Monday, a 38° and dark morning. I made coffee, had a couple smokes in the garage, had English Muffins w/ Red Raspberry Preserves, and fired-up the furnace to 68°, plus he garage heater, and the Dyson unit in my office-sunroom. I checked the weather and news, ptimarily to see if there were any further developments in the Waukesha Chrismas Parade slaughter. 7 dead, 48 badly injured, with several small children in critical condition. My anger is beyond belief. The murderer, Darrell Brooks needs killing. NOW!

I fell asleep on the LR couch as my cleaning lady was doing the condo, and woke-up around 11:30, as she was leaving. I finished-off a mug of coffee, to try to wake-up, and perhaps go do some food shopping. I went, but forgot my list and missed a number of things, but still spent $135 for $80-85 worth of groceries, in 4 bags. Damn. After getting home and unloading, I had lunch, and did paperwork until 6p. After dinner, I watched Motor Trend's "West Coast Customs" and some Fox News shows, until midnight. Lights out.

Here's a "starter list" of thousands of medical employees being fired or resigning their job at hospital and medical system, all over the country. Nice, huh?

Up at 7a on Tuesday, it was a cold 28° and frosty morning outside, so I fired-up the furnace and garage heater, Had a couple smokes, made coffee, did the morning finger stick, and had a croissant and sugar-free blueberry preserves for a light breakfast. I listened to the "Chris Plante Show" until 10, then left for Weis Market to get the items I'd forgotten yesterday, before the T-Day Holiday traffic got too heavy. That done, I had a 12:30p haircut, and got that done. Traffic was heavy, and with a wreck o I83 North, they'd re-routed massive 52ft semis onto local roads and even residential streets. Getting home was a chore.

I have seen things, few people would believe – a young mother cat suckling her newborn kittens, violent tornadoes & hurricanes up-close and personal, whole hummingbird families in their tiny nests, Spring grass blades poking through a fresh "onion snow", active volcanoes on Hawaii, a Space Shuttle launch which exploded upon take-off – all those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain, when I die.

I had lunch, did paperwork and a couple of condo chores, before watching two IMSA (Int'l Motor Sports Ass'n) sports car races at Road Atlanta. Lee stopped by for a short while and watched the races, and left to get back home, in the pre-Holiday, heavy traffic. After a Allen Bros Steakburger w/ Chips for dinner, I watched History's "Curse of Oak Island" until FNC's Tucker", "Laura" and part of "Gutfeld", until 11:45p. Lights out.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I could have slept all morning. Instead I got up at 9a, and fumbled around and struggled to get the finger stick done, have a couple smokes in the cold garage. It was 34° and sunny outside, but I didn't care until after getting some coffee. So tired. By 10a, I'd had a light breakfast, two cups of coffee, but still felt so darned tired. I left for Rite Aid to p/u a Rx inhaler for my COPD, and was feeling better getting out in the fresh, cold air. I finally "woke-up" by 11.

After lunch, I got ready to meet Sherry at the nearby York Galleria Mall, to do some walking, since it was too cold outside. We did just over ½ mile, before my right hip and Sciatica said "no more" and get some rest, so we left for my condo. I'd taken a 10mg Valium before I met her, and that helped somewhat, but I had no more Tramadol, which really dulled the pain. We had a good time for the next few hours, and she left at dusk, to get home before dark. After some Blackened Salmon w/ Rice, Green Beans & Sliced Peaches for dinner, I watched TV until 11p, and called it a day.

Awake at 7:15a, to a 32° and cloudy morning, I immediately did the finger stick, started coffee, had a croissant and orange marmelade preserves for breakfast, and checked the weather and news. I got ready to go over to Becky's condo, pick her up and go to Mt Rose Cemetery, to visit Mom & Dad, and take them a card. We cleaned-off the "Chapel of Memories" Mauseoleum's table of our past cards and wilted flowers, did some clean-up inside, and left. I dropped her off at home. She's on a special diet for the next couple of weeks. For my Thanksgiving Dinner, I had cold leftover, boiled, unpeeled, Old Bay-seasoned shrimp (16-20ct) and a small can of cold baby sweet peas. Turkey and the trimmings are overrated, anyway. Heh.

Seriously tired, I slept on the LR couch for 3hrs, had a light dinner and watched some TV; most "best of" shows on Fox and other stations, gave-up on anything entertaining and bagged it around 10p. Tomorrow, starts a new week here in the "Journal", and I have a lunch with an old friend and former customer from the Garden Center & Nursery years.

30 Hilarious German Insults You Can Use.

If you’ve had your fill of German terms of endearment and want to learn how to insult someone instead, look no further. Some of these insults are amusingly innocent-sounding, while others are pretty devastating—so let’s hope you don’t wind up on the receiving end of one of those. Here are 30 of the best German insults I could find. BTW, I can't pronounce any of them.

1. Arschgeige

Someone who doesn’t perform a particular task very well can be called a “butt violin,” or arschgeige.

2. Bananenbieger

Someone who’s engaged in a pointless task, who can't concentrate, or has no direction in life can be called a bananenbieger, or “banana bender.”

3. Erbsenzähler

A “pea counter” is a nitpicker who obsesses over the little details. Similarly, you can call an overly pedantic person who always plays by the rules an ameisentätowierer, or “ant tattooist.”

4. Lustmolch

This word literally translates to “pleasure newt,” which is what you’d call someone who is sex-crazed.

5. Arsch mit ohren

A "butt with ears"—or, put simply, a complete idiot.

6. Evolutionsbremse

An “evolutionary brake” is an unintelligent person whose very existence on Earth hinders the advancement of the human species, so to speak.

7. Einzeller

In a similar vein, this word means a “single-cell organism.”

8. Hosenscheißer

These “trouser-poopers” are cowards.

9. Dünnbrettbohrer

A “driller of thin planks” is someone who takes the easy way out and does the bare minimum.

10. Spargeltarzan

This imaginative insult translates to “asparagus Tarzan,” and describes someone who is thin and gangly.

11. Kotzbrocken

A "lump of puke."

12. Heißluftgebläse

A “hot air gun” is someone who talks too much, but about nothing. You can also call someone a labertasche, or “babble bag.”

13. Gehirnverweigerer

A “brain denier” is someone who doesn’t use their noggin often.

14. Teletubbyzurückwinker

This word, which means “someone who waves back at Teletubbies,” describes someone who isn’t too bright.

15. Schluckspecht

A boozer who hits the bottle too much can be called a “guzzling woodpecker.”

16. Stinkstiefel

A “smelly boot” is an especially grouchy person.

17. Tratschtante

A “gossip aunt” is someone who loves to spread rumors and talk about other people.

18. Rotzlöffel

A brat—literally, “snot spoon.”

19. Speichellecker

A “saliva licker,” or brown-noser.

20. Lackaffe

A “varnish monkey” is an overly flashy man who dresses garishly.

21. Schweinehund

In English, someone who behaves crassly (typically a man) can be called a “pig” or a “dog.” German combines both into schweinehund, meaning “pig dog.”

22. Trantüte

Here’s one for your morning commute: You can call the slowpoke in front of you a trantüte, or a “bag of whale blubber.”

23. Backpfeifengesicht

Backpfeife is a slap across the cheek, and gesicht is face. Put them together and you get “a face that invites a slap.”

24. Blockflötengesicht

Remember the recorder from your childhood music class? It has seven holes and blows hot air, just like a “recorder face,” or blockflötengesicht. (It refers to a person’s two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, and mouth.) Basically, it means an idiot, or someone given to meaningless talk.

25. Socken-in-sandalen-träger

There are a few sock-oriented taunts in German. A socken-in-sandalen-träger, or “socks-in-sandals wearer,” is kind of a wimp. So is a sockenschläfer (someone who sleeps in socks) and a sockenfalter (a man who folds his socks).

26. Weichei

Likewise, “soft eggs” are weak or wimpy. This word (and the rest of the insults listed below) are part of a whole list of German synonyms for wimp called weicheiwörter, or "soft egg words."

27. Warmduscher

A warmduscher is a wuss who takes warm showers.

28. Jeansbügler

Someone who irons their jeans.

29. Tee-trinker

Someone who drinks tea—most likely when everyone else is drinking beer.

30. Schattenparker

Someone who parks in the shade.
