We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
“Irresolvable tribal differences cannot be considered to be mere political differences.”
The following essay by El Inglés is a sequel to the one published back in February. In this follow-up he extends his observations about tribal differences in modern Britain — and the rest of the Western world — by examining various tribal fractures which may be widened and inflamed during conflicts engendered by Muslim communities against their host society.
As usual, it’s useful to remember that El Inglés’ analysis is descriptive, and not normative. That is, something similar to what he projects here is the inevitable shape of things to come if Britain’s feckless political leaders fail to wake up to the severity of the crisis that is at hand.
Took two years of Spanish in college. Treated each Mexican I met with courtesy and kindness. Now, I lay in bed at night wondering how close the next gun shots will be. My bed in a nice middle class suburban development. We have some African/Americans (Navy). We have some Indian families (Microsoft). We have some Easter Europeans (wives). We all look after each other--neighborhood block watch--speed bumps for the kids to play safely. But. BUT. Just across the busy road from the entrance to our little community numerous cheap and quick apartment blocks have gone up. The largest group occupying those apartments in a "Sanctuary City" are newly arrived Mexicans. The influx has happened in the past seven years. Quick and dirty ladies and gentlemen. They are here. They are not legal. AND they don't give a DAMN about my courtesy, or the generosity of my nation which turns the other cheek. They steal cars at night, they shoot guns at night, they cruise through this working class neighborhood during the day looking for homes which are easy to break into. Those are not Norwegian immigrants. Those are not Jewish immigrants. NO. They are only one group up here folks--illegal Mexican immigrants. Thought you should have this information after you read that very fine essay on the linked site. We don't sleep deep anymore--my beloved and I--we are always trying to hear the danger.
apple pie ... That's a grim story. I hope that you live in a state which allows you to have a house gun as a home defense weapon. My city [Houston] is a sanctuary city and our newspaper, The Houston Chronicle, reported in November of last year that we had 37,000 illegal alien felons within the city. By felons, they meant arrested and convicted felons.
That's why we have a house gun. If your state laws allow, get yourselves a house gun. As the recession deepens, criminals get more desperate, excusing themselves by saying they have to "support" their families. On your money.
