ISRA Thursday Bulletin - December 20, 2018

by Richard Pearson

There is no question that unbridled illegal immigration is a threat to our Second Amendment Rights, as well as many other facets of the United States we know and love.  The left, of course, doesn’t see it that way and is on a constant quest to tear the United States apart.  Flooding the country with illegal immigrants is a sure way to do that.  The left-wing news media, left-wing organizations and left-wing politicians place constant attacks on the idea of The Wall, while saying there are other ways of securing the border.  Those other ways include such things as drones, more personnel, warning systems and on and on.  So, if they are willing to fund those things, why not The Wall?

The answer is really simple.  If you build a wall it will stand there 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  The wall doesn’t care if it is hot, cold, raining, snowing or a dust storm.  The wall doesn’t get sick, need a day off or require health insurance.  Once it is built it can’t be defunded, ordered to not patrol an area, turned off like warning systems, suffer power outages or ordered not to fly like drones and planes.  If some administration in the future tries to tear it down, everyone will see what they are doing.  It is easy to hide the other methods of not enforcing immigration policy from the public and the left-wing news media will never report it.  If the public does find out, the left will simply bog the other methods down in endless debate and nothing will get done.  

The panel reviewing the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida has just released a 407-page report containing several recommendations, one of which is arming teachers.  Polk County Sheriff, Grady Judd, was on the panel and said the program for arming teachers needs to be expanded.  Of course, the liberal Democrats went into a tizzy recommending bullet proof glass and metal detectors.  The left typically makes such recommendations avoiding the real solutions.  The real solution is to stop the would-be killer in his tracks immediately.  I don’t care if they commit suicide, I don’t care why they did it or attempted to do it, get them off the planet and bury them in an unmarked grave.  Their names should never be uttered again and any news media person who does utter the name should be charged as being an accomplice.  

As I have mentioned many times before, the only people present at a crime scene are the criminal and the intended victim or victims.  Stop waiting for someone else to save you because it won’t happen.

By this time next week when the Thursday Bulletin comes out Santa Claus will just be waking up from a nap after a record setting dash around the globe.  Mrs. Claus will be busy in the kitchen making a hardy pot of tomato bisque soup and a couple of grilled cheese sandwiches to warm the chills Santa got riding in his open sleigh.  Mrs. Claus keeps telling him to put a cab on the sleigh but he refuses.

The reindeer have already been in the whirlpool soaking out some of the aches and pains from their strenuous night of pulling the always overloaded sleigh.  They will spend an hour each day getting rubdowns from the training elves to help get them back in shape.  Donner and Blitzen both got a couple of sprained ankles so they will be in therapy for about two weeks.  It is nothing serious and they should be just fine.

The unsung elves are off until the day after New Year’s and then they will go back to work getting ready for next year.  I hear the elf Christmas Eve Party will be quite the affair this year.  It takes them about week to clean up the toy shop and another week to get their tools repaired.  The Elf Toy Design department will be coming up with new ideas for next year so material will have to ordered right away.  The toy shop is scheduled to be at full production by February 1st.  You and I will be waiting for the mail in nervous anticipation to see how bad the credit cards bills are going to be.

Merry Christmas!
