Okay, gang. I'm tired and grumpy, so bear with me. I'll try to keep it as clean as possible.
Last night I came down with what Brin called a case of the "turkey trots". I got some Pepto and Gatorade to keep me hydrated. I took the Pepto - about four doses all night. Didn't help - I was still up about six times over the night to...well, you know.
I DID manage to get some REM sleep, so I'm not falling over. And I'm taking my CPAP with me so I can take a nap at the family gathering.
This is not the day to be sick, gang. Hope you all are all right.
How special is THIS? Mexican President Felipe Calderón is calling for US presidential candidates to not use Mexican immigrants as a talking point! Get THIS:
Calderóns statement on the U.S. presidential race caught many people here by surprise. Addressing delegates at a conference sponsored by the Mexican government agency that assists migrants, he said: "It is my duty to make a respectful but firm call to the candidates of the various political parties in the United States for them to stop using Mexicans in that country as thematic hostages of their speeches and their strategies."
Calderón has frequently criticized U.S. immigration policy, as do many Mexicans.
Hey, dumbshit - first of all, no matter WHAT many of your countrymen think, this is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, not MEXICO.
Secondly - a lot of those Mexican migrants are in the US ILLEGALLY. They have already committed a crime, and therefore deserve to be deported!
Thirdly, you fucking hypocrite - illegal aliens have NO RIGHTS IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY! If you're an illegal immigrant in Mexico, you can't get a driver's license! It's AGAINST THE LAW!!
How about you clean up the reasons why YOUR countrymen are leaving YOUR country, and stay out of OUR presidential race?
Now, before any of you start screaming - I'm all for LEGAL immigration. If you follow channels and get your citizenship, congratulations - really. Citizenship is a hard, tough road...but it's worth it.
But if you're here illegally, forget it - all bets are off.
One time, many years ago, my boss caught someone putting graffiti on one of our games. My boss called the police. The fuckwad actually said, "Don't call the police - I'm in this country illegally, and I'll get deported."
The police hauled the guy's ass away.
If you're in a country ILLEGALLY, why the FUCK are you breaking the law AGAIN??
Okay. I have to get in the shower. I have a drive ahead of me.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
Be seeing you.
