Call to protest answered at last!

Ree-C Murphey over at Lone Star Times has found that the Call to Protest has been answered! The venue and the date have changed, but the substance is the same. CLOSE THE BORDER NOW!

Where: In front of the Mexican Consulate on San Jacinto (how appropriate!) between Wheeler And Blodgett

When: Saturday April 22, 11:30-3:00 PM

Who: Do you really need to ask?

Unfortunately a prior engagement involving a Lawyer and a lot of paperwork will prevent me from being there in person. But I will be there in spirit.

Welcome Back Mars!

Right after Katrina, I showed you this picture...

Yesterday Shell announced that limited production will re-start by the end of this month, and that full pre-Katrina production levels will be reached by mid-June.

Welcome Back Shell Mars!

ICE makes an immigration raid on a local employer.

Ya know, there was a time, not that terribly long ago where if you were on a construction site and someone saw a drab green Dodge Pickup, instantly you'd here shouts of La Migra! La Migra! and everyone would scatter. It was as common and predictable as the Sun rising in the East. Today it is so rare that ICE bothers to do it's job that it makes the newspaper

That, my friends, is pathetic.

Strange Search Terms

Occasionally I will be perusing my Blog stats and will run across a really wierd search string that someone entered and somehow managed to find good 'ol RIT somewhere in the results, When I follow the search string results invariably, RIT is a ways down the list, but today I ran across one on Google that takes the cake. RIT is the number one hit, and given the search string, I'm not sure I should be considering #1 placement a compliment....

Call to Protest goes unanswered

Ladies and gents, a while back I posted a Call to Protest in the hopes that those of us who oppose continued illegal immigration would stand up and be counted. I had hoped that such a call would be picked up and trumpeted around the local blogsphere in an effort to garner attention for the cause. Apparently I misjudged the general citizenry of Houston. I recieved a total of 13 favorable responses compared with the tens of thousands of illegals turning out on a nearly daily basis. This is beyond sad. This is pathetic. If we cannot turn out a similar number when the national and local polls clearly show better than 75% of the populace are against illegal immigration and amnesty, I question whether we have the moral right to even govern this nation. I figured this protest would be a slam dunk. Clearly I was badly mistaken. If we hold such a rally and only a dozen people show up (if that), what will the message be to the media who clearly are pandering to the illegals? What will that tell the politicians who apparently are pandering to them as well? We just don't give a damn, that is what. I give up. I'll continue my calling an cajoling of the politicians, but I am tired of trying to stir Americans to do anything but sit on the sidelines and bitch about the outcome.
