On Friday, Anne and I took the TEXAS LICENSE TO CARRY TEST . . . which both of us ACED. And to add Proud On-Top of Proud, even though Anne was terrified that she wouldn’t do well on the Overall Test, she Tied me in Shooting and Beat me by 1-Point on the Written Portion.
Even though we are going to try . . . It’s doubtful that either of us will be able to get our Actual Texas Carry Permits, since we are NOT American Citizens, while at the same time, we can LEGALLY have Holstered LOADED Handguns in our Vehicles and Place of Residence.
And . . . if push would ever come to shove, and we had to defend either ourselves or someone else, we would have the EXACT SAME RIGHTS to use our Weapons, as would any American Citizen, which is kind of WONKY to the fact, that we CAN’T Carry Legally, even though we did close to 100% On Our LTC (License To Carry) Tests.
We have NO CRIMINAL RECORDS whatsoever, we have EARNED the Right to Own Guns in Canada, which is NOT an easy thing to do, and we have been Cleared by Homeland Security (FBI) and the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) to obtain NEXUS US/Canada Border Cards (Most Trusted Traveler Status), and have ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms) Approval to Transport our Guns and Ammunition throughout the USA.
As much as Anne and I would LOVE to have the Right To Carry, which we might or might not do, even if we had the “RIGHT”, just passing the LTC gives us BRAGGING RIGHTS very few Canadians can ever hope to have. And that means a lot to us.
BUT OF ALL THE PRECEDING JUST SAID . . . Anne and I FULLY ACKNOWLEDGE that we are NOT Americans, no matter how much we would like to have Green Cards and Citizenship – WE KNOW THAT WE ARE NOT AMERICANS, and are in the USA as the GUESTS of the American People courtesy of the American Government, which gives us 100% Protection under the US Constitution, WITH THE EXCEPTION of being allowed to stay in the USA . . . ONLY IF AND WHEN the American Authorities decide WE ARE NO LONGER WELCOME IN AMERICA.
IT DOESN’T MATTER . . . That Anne and I Speak, Read and Write English as well as, and perhaps better than MOST Americans. It makes no difference that Anne and I know more about American History, Culture, Geography, Politics, Civics and Laws than MOST Americans . . . ALL THAT MATTERS, IS THAT WE ARE NOT AMERICANS – Which brings me to a SURREALISTIC Street Conversation I had the other day while Walking Stryker.
SO . . . I’m walking a couple of days ago with Stryker and another Guy, who was also walking his dog, who is a US Vietnam Navy Veteran (not the dog but the guy), who is in his early 70’s, who told me Matter of Factly . . . that “TRUMP IS NO BETTER THAN HITLER”, which caused me to STOP WALKING, and look at him INCREDULOUSLY.
I asked him, and NOT in a gentle voice . . . “HOW THE HELL COULD YOU POSSIBLY SAY THAT?” His response to me was this . . . “Look how he’s Rounding up INNOCENT Mexicans; men, women and children, kicking down their doors in the middle of the night, and dragging them off just like the Nazis did to Jews.”
I COULDN’T BELIEVE WHAT I WAS HEARING . . . So where do you even start to answer a person, who’s got it SO WRONG, and is SO BIASED, that there really is no Reasonable Retort? SO I DID IT THIS WAY . . . WITHOUT DEBATE.
1 – I know exactly from where you’re getting your information . . . you’re watching, reading and listening to the WRONG Media, and it’s unfounded. They are Lies, Lies, and MORE Lies. So, let’s start with the BIGGEST LIE.
2 – TAKE THIS AS 100% TRUTH FROM AN EXPERT . . . Anne and I are HERE IN YOUR COUNTRY “LEGALLY”. We crossed at YOUR Border with all of our Papers Intact. And answered all the Homeland Security Border Guard’s Questions with Absolute Honesty.
WE ALSO KNOW AND RESPECT THE FACT . . . that as soon as we reach the 182-DAY MANDATE to Leave your country, since we can only be in the USA for a TOTAL OF 182-DAYS per Running Year, according to Homeland Security, WE HAVE TO LEAVE, and can not come back until the 182-Day “Clock” Starts ticking again.
WE DON’T LIKE THIS LAW . . . And we think it’s kind of STUPID, since Canadians like Anne and Myself come into the USA with ZERO DEMANDS on the American Social System. We come with Money to pay our own way. We do not come to work. So we can’t be accused of taking American Jobs. In fact, because we come with our own money, we help create and maintain American Jobs through our Purchases. We come with our own Healthcare Insurance, so we are NEITHER a drag NOR a drain on your Medical System. We do NOT break the Law. We do NOT Deal in Drugs, Prostitution, Extortion or anything else like that. And even though we are very much aware of your Political System, and have STRONG Conservative Opinions, we DO NOT VOTE, nor do we try to VOTE in any of your Elections.
SO – BY RESTRICTING THE AMOUNT OF TIME . . . Canadians like Anne and I can stay in the United States of America, is not only a bother to us, but it is a HUGE FINANCIAL LOSS TO THE USA. So it makes no sense . . .
BUT WHETHER IT MAKES SENSE OR NOT . . . IS 100% IRRELEVANT, since that’s the LAW. And we realize that we are nothing more and nothing less than “GUESTS” IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
3 – SO . . . If Anne and I, who are both PERFECT GUESTS in your country, know that we have to OBEY & RESPECT YOUR IMMIGRATION LAW & LEAVE, when our Time is up, how is it that MORE than 12-Million . . . and maybe as many as 20-MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS DON’T?
AND IF ANNE AND I . . . Overstayed our LEGAL Welcome to your country (182-Days), and were ARRESTED for Deportation – what Argument could we possibly put forward in our defense to stay, since there is NOTHING in the US Constitution that GUARANTEES OUR RIGHT . . . TO INVADE & SQUAT IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?
4 – SO EXPLAIN TO ME . . . Why an ILLEGAL Alien, should have RIGHTS to be in the United States of America, because he or she SNUCK across your Border, brought his or her child or children regardless of age, or overstayed his or her Visa, or entered under False Pretenses, WHICH ANNE AND I RECOGNIZE ARE RIGHTS, WHICH WE DON’T HAVE?
5 – The man who thought Trump was as bad as Hitler . . . Responded with – “Just stay . . . no one would know you’re here Illegally”, to which my response was simple . . . “It seems to me, that I have more respect for your country than you do”.
ANNE AND I WOULD LOVE TO JUST STAY . . . But that’s not how it works. And if everyone in America who has the same attitude as the Guy Walking his Dog alongside Stryker and me . . . had their way . . . AMERICA WOULD CEASE BEING AMERICA. And all the VALUES, Cultural Uniqueness, and Constitutional Laws that make America – America . . . would disappear in a Sea of Multi-Culturalism, which would lead to the END OF THE AMERICAN DREAM.
Our IDIOT Prime Minister, and I don’t use the Adjective Idiot Loosely . . . has DECLARED that Canada is essentially a Sanctuary Country, where NO ONE WILL BE TURNED AWAY, including Immigrants with Mental and Infectious Health Issues, according to his Minister of Health, Jane Philpott.
Now that ILLEGALS in the United States are STAMPEDING for the Canadian Border, especially that the weather is warming-up, before Homeland Security and ICE can Catch and Deport them . . . how many “REFUGEES” and Phony Refugee Claimants, will Canada Accept under the Policy of EVERYONE?
WHEN THE “REFUGEES” . . . come to Canada, they are GUARANTEED FREE Healthcare, FREE Education for their Children. FREE Accommodations, FREE Food, FREE Legal Advice, and FREE Everything-else they can dream-up.
We don’t have enough money to meet our NATO Commitment, while our Military Languishes. Our Roads, Bridges and Airports REALLY Need Repair. We have Children who go to bed at night who are Malnourished. Many of our Elderly have to decide between Heat and Food. We don’t have nearly enough Doctors, and our Healthcare System is Failing. And that’s just the Tip of the Iceberg.
And given the LUDICROUS costs for our BLOATED Public Sector Workers’ Salaries, Perks and Pensions . . . which cause people like Anne and Myself to worry, whether Canada will be able to pay OUR OWN PENSIONS, which we INVESTED in with our Hard Work, is no Laughing Matter.
AND IF CANADA “WELCOMES” . . . as many as a MILLION Immigrants, (maybe a bit more, maybe a bit less), who can’t speak either of our two official languages (French and English), and have nothing in common with our culture, who pray to a Religious Cult that is ANATHEMA to our Judeo/Christian Secular Rule of Law and Order – How long will it take, before Canada as we know it, will Collapse?
AND NOT JUST IMMIGRANTS RUSHING-IN FROM THE USA . . . What about the Moslem Immigrants who are now being expelled from countries within the European Union and other parts of the World? Where do you think they will head, once word gets out, that Canada will take All-Comers, and there’s a Wealth of FREE STUFF FOR THE TAKING?
PERHAPS THE GUY I WAS WALKING WITH . . . should ponder that, and think more about HIS COUNTRY, and the RIGHTS of the American People, and LESS about the NON-EXISTENT RIGHTS of Illegal Wannabe Americans, and GIVE PRAISE to President Trump for Protecting the Safety, Culture and Integrity of the United States of America.
I just wish we had a Leader who would care as much for the integrity of Canada and the Canadian People, rather than his GLOBAL FANTASY of a One World Government, where we would all sit around a Campfire Roasting Marshmallows, while Singing Kumbaya.
Perhaps if things continue the way they are, especially with New Canadian Laws being put Forward, which are designed to Restrict my Freedom of Expression for anything Negative I write or Say about Islam . . . Anne, Stryker, April The Cat, and I will be knocking on the American Door . . . SEEKING “LEGAL” REFUGEE STATUS FOR POLITICAL ASYLUM?
