Law Enforcement

Law enforcement means that the agency so named has a responsibility to enforce laws. That is what they do and most of them perform their tasks very well. What strikes me as “funny” is that people come down on “law enforcement” officials when they are performing their duties. One of the jobs assigned to ICE is to round up illegals in our country….Boy, do some of the citizens get upset when those particular agents do their job. The headlines from several states cry about them rounding up illegals and deporting them. If these people disagree with the law, change the law. Don’t spend your time crying about these “law enforcement” people doing their job…..THAT’S WHAT THEY DO…..

Printing Money….Good Grief

I read in the newspaper today where the United States uses 9.7 tons of paper daily to print paper money….Wow, did you see that? It was in the comic strips so do you reckon it’s correct. If so, consider this…..it takes 454 paper bills to make a pound of paper money, according to Google, so if it’s one dollar bills or twenty’s or hundred’s, it takes 454 of them to make a pound. Nine point seven tons converts to 19,400 pounds of paper. If they are printing all one’s on Monday, 8,807,600 dollars  hit the streets of America. If it’s twenties on Tuesday,  176,152,000 dollars hits the street….If it’s hundreds on Wednesday, ah gee, well, that must be about 880,760,000. Anyway, it’s a dad gum bunch of money. If we could figure out a way to stop the paper going into the governments printing presses we could fix the budget, well maybe…but consider this: give each American their own printing press and if they need some money, print it up…that would save a whole lot of salaries paid to government workers and then also we could pay whatever taxes the government wanted us to pay by printing up two, three thousand dollars…no sweat….Oh, wait.. we better not do that since the feds can and citizens can’t and it would be better if the government did not do that either….I mean,  pretty soon we gonna run out of trees.

Football Picks….Nope, Not This Year

Picking the winning football team each week is what Football Picks is all about and to pick the winners most times I would have to pick the teams playing my teams.  I don’t like to do that so I will just tell you who I pull for most every week…..University of New Mexico every week….New Mexico State U every week except when they play UNM.   Arizona every week except when the play one of the New Mexico Teams.  Same comment for Texas Tech and  Wisconsin. Now I root for Alabama every week and I have forever, however, this year they play New Mexico State….I do know Bama will win….You know Bama will win….All that said I’m still going to be pulling for NMSU to make a good showing and keep trying until the fat lady sings. Talking about a bull headed team, NMSU starts at Washington State, then they play Alabama, then a little later in the season they play Ole Miss. Hard to have a winning season when you line up those teams….My Lobos go up to Notre Dame for their second game and New Mexico State for the third game…Their schedule is a little more team friendly (I hope) than the Aggies. Anyway, its time for FOOTBALL….I’m ready. Been a long dry spell. ESPN showing the top twenty five  2018 games over again in the off season helped a lot

Trump…Keeps The Liberals Uptight, Don’t He?

President Trump keeps coming up with things to get the liberals going…Yeah, I know…That does not take much. It’s kind of like wherever President Trump opens his mouth the left start hollowing before the words reach a microphone. It’s funny in a way but yet it is sadder in a much worse way. If they would just listen to him and not judge so quickly, things would work out to the satisfaction of all parties. But that ain’t gonna happen anytime soon. Buying Greenland sounds like a pretty good idea to me, but that got a lot of folks going. Left leaning Jews got a little upset with him….some other things getting folks fired up, China trade war, expansion of migrant family detention, arms sale to Taiwan…you know, just whatever he comes up with.  All of those things are good for us. The thing the left is missing out on is trying to negotiate with Trump to get things closer to the way they want them…… Well,  I don’t think that’s gonna happen either.  And so it goes.

New Mexico….Aiding and Abetting

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 09-08-2019

In today’s Albuquerque Journal, 8/9/19 it was reported that a department of the state of New Mexico will not turn over information to ICE investigators regarding our illegal aliens who are working or living in the state. Is that not aiding and abettIn ting? What would happen to a individual  who would do something like that? You know, we need to either enforce the laws of this state or change the laws of this state. You cannot just tell some government agency to “cram it” just because  we do not agree with them. A law is a law……There are cases where local law enforcement will not corporate with ICE officials and that’s not right. The attitude toward illegals in the State of New Mexico is very strange and they can turn a “blind eye” and “deaf ear” on many occasions.

Racists….Bigots….Liars….All Races Have Them

I will be the first to admit that the white race has our share of racists and bigots and liars….I wish we did not, but we do. But I do not believe that President Trump is one of them, but he is extremely honest in his answers and some other races jump all over that honesty as racist, mainly because it fits their agenda, which is tearing down Trump.

I am pretty sure that the black race is just as bad as the whites in being racists and bigots. And one member of congress and one extremely vocal public speaker are about as bad as they come in racism and bigotry ….both are black and neither one own up to being racist.

However, that said, both of those parties and myself need to understand that there is a degree of honesty in all of the answers given on both sides. We have to listen to what is being said and evaluate it’s truthfulness and not be so quick to say “racist’.  Can we do that? I doubt that we can also. But we owe it to the world to try.

Transgender…..

I watched a report on TV this morning about trans genders running track, competing against some girls. What a screwed up world. The transgender won…..Surprise, surprise. As I understand this case, the transgender was a boy, competing against some girls and the “it” won. I feel badly that a person feels lost in who they are, but, hey, get over it person…You are either a boy or girl, there is no “tweens”. Your plumbing assignment determines just where you need to be…..We, the general public, allow this type thinking. It’s crazy…. What else can we come up with…maybe human or not human, alien maybe, something else even more far out…..And what is really surprising to me is that we, the general public,  actually go along with this madness and allow it to continue. That is really the most surprising part to me. No one is outraged at this type thinking, well, maybe me and a few others. What a screwed up world….Oh, I said that already….I have no other words…it is screwed up….it is crazy…

Successes vs Failures

On my writings, some of them:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The painting shown  became the cover for my book, “Apaches, Buffalo Soldiers, That Female Reporter and Me”,  my first published book, “Lost in the Black Range” and on the right, The Saga of Zachary Williams, The Sabine Kid”. I enjoyed doing all three books and learned so much about the Apache Indians, about Buffalo Soldiers and their contribution to settling of the western United States, and about the history of our country in getting to where we are today. I came a long way in understanding the Apaches and their way of life and how we made them pay….27 years as prisoners of war in a new environment for them in a different part of America. Learning this and more is my success and the enjoyment of just doing it. Of course, the failure in very  little pay and even less notoriety.

I will settle for the enjoyment of the writings any day and even hope for more words to come to me to write until my fingers and mind cannot operate any longer, that the writing will improve with time and that wisdom in word choices will come.

And lastly, let me just say to the one to whom credit is due: Thank you Lord Jesus….

 

 

On my paintings, or at least a few of them:

Successes:

The painting of some of my rocks….Then a picture from memory of the house my wife was raised in….Then a picture of an abandoned home site near Portales, NM and is now a field of yellow flowers…I was so happy to have done them….

Failure of these paintings….No money, of course, and very few atta boys….But I’m still working on improving and doing more in the future….Who knows…..Thank you Lord Jesus  for letting me believe in myself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Immigrants….Send Them Home With Money

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 14-07-2019

I goggled the cost of dealing with the immigrants at the border on a annual basis….Internet says it roughly 4.4 billion per year….and then I goggled the number of immigrants apprehended this year and they reported almost 400,000….Question…Why not send the immigrants home with a percentage of that money going to their home country of origin. It figures to be around several million dollars per home country, depending upon the number of countries involved. Over a hundred million each, maybe or at least a goodly amount. Maybe that would make a difference  to the involved countries….well, at least for a couple of years….. Seems like someone in congress could figure something out, does it not….Do they ever think outside the box?….Oh wait, it’s congress…The better question would be, “Do they ever think?”

Illegals Sue America….

My gosh, I have heard it all now. The ACLU is about the worst organization in our country today. They fight all the wrong battles……Criminals suing us because we are deporting them. That’s what happens when you come into this country illegal.  You have been here too long now. Time to go…..

And another thing….America did not create the mess on the border…..nor did the Border Patrol…..nor did the citizens of the United States of America….It is totally in the hands of the immigrants trying to get into our country. Of course, we are getting the blame for it all. If we don’t wake up soon we will be over run by the migrants and our country, already broke will soon be broken and broke. It is going to happen sooner than later unless Trump can get it stopped.

Do you wonder why so many Americans are backing Trump…..Gosh, read the news. Liberal America has gone stark raving mad. We have to have Trump to survive.
