Be Thankful

So here's a couple of pictures taken of N. Korean beaches.here and here.
Nice, huh?
Notice the barbed-wire fencing? The caption that originally went with these photos, indicated that these fences were electrified to discourage anyone from actually going on the beach and into the water and trying to escape.

Moral of this post is: Be Thankful and Appreciate where you live. It could be a lot worse.

So, the Left has decided that the PC term for illegally entering the U.S. from Mexico is migration.Lol.
Like the people are birds or butterflies. Wouldn't it be nice if the problem were truly seasonal like birds and butterflies, instead of constant and never-ending?

Has anyone ever asked the leaders and followers of the pro-immigration Left, why the people from Mexico should get special preference for the "jobs Americans won't do?" I mean, there are plenty of poor Asians who wouldn't mind picking vegetables instead of working in the rice patties. Why shouldn't they get the same opportunity to " do the jobs that Americans won't do" ? Why shouldn't we limit the number of Mexicans and central Americans sneaking in and allow Asians (an others) to enter legally to do the work?

What is the Left's response to that?
Why should migration only occur with those south of the border? What about those who want to migrate from across the ocean? There's only room for so many and only enough "jobs that Americans won't do" for so many, so why should non-hispanics' desire to migrate take a back seat?
I'd like to hear the answer.

Heckled Again

ISNA (Iranian Student News Agency) ran pictures of Rafsanjani being heckled by Mezbah Yazdi supporters, during his speech on the anniversary of Khomeini's death.
Mezbah Yazdi leads the Hojatieh sect, and is Ahmadinejad's mentor.
Khomeini was against the Hojatieh sect and they didn't support him at the time of the revolution in 1979.
Rafsanjani was heckled quite a bit last year before the presidential elections.

Mark Steyn: Too many September 10th institutions, not enough September 12th thinking.

"we waste far too much time, and devote far too much energy, into basically trying to work through institutions that are not September 11th institutions. I include in that the United Nations, the IAEA, NATO, and the European Union. We have to accept that these institutions are never going to look at the September 11th world the same way the U.S. and a few other countries do, and not waste all this energy, this terrible, sapping energy, in going through them.

That's it in a nutshell.
