long day today and at the middle, on the mortorcycle, i was heading home from a client meeting and past the intersection from hence my old buddy Berah was on my old Blue bike and i hit my horn, fiaam makes one loud horn that!
pulled a U turn and chased the man down, he waved me on, we went to his place and he cooked up a lunch for us both. a Berah blue plate special, raman noodles and nuked meataballs. we talked, miss not having him as a housemate at times. but that is not what this post is about.
he said, hey man come over tonight after Keenan's asleep and let's have some scotch and watch 'good night and good luck'. ok i said.
after my day wound down and i got my kid back to her mom's ranch, and got my dog back in my home in town, i got a head lamp reflective jacket type thing and pulled my singlespeed out of the garage to ride over to Berhas place a few blocks away.
dont want to get a RUI.
cool shirt idea i thought. riding under the influence... ha ha
watched the flick, drank scotch and post dvd movie commentary this statement was made and this is what the post is about.... to think about...
if the whole world WAS a true Democracy,
the white American male would be,
the minority.... think about it.
no wonder the Machivellian powers that be are playing games and Bush is being the silly monkey puppet of the cloistered puppeteers, they are at the same time loosing power to the flattening of the planet by way of technology blogs the world wide web and ideas as they are more and more getting blazzeningly Mad about the acts of the play.
scratching our collective chin about history... in the name of Democracy, the American elected government has put some bad people in place that we then had to take out later... if A equals B and B equals C therefore A equals C...... does this mean we are bad?
it does if we continue to allow it. who is going to stand up and work in fact like the good night and good luck edward r murrow's?
think about that

immigrants Mexico and the real problem
The problem is not illegal immigrants, the problem is America has these jobs that current legal work force people do not want and the immigrants that illegally come in to the States are willing to do cheaply. So there is this large pool of opportunity for the 'illegals' and for the 'business people' who hire them.
The problem is that the schisim between wealth and poor is wide and everyone wants to be pretty wants to be wealthy wants to be famous blah blah blah.... So who wants to wash dishes, dig ditches, mow lawns, clean toilets?
Why is it that sticking a finger in the dike is the solution this administration comes up with? Did it work for New Orleans? No it did not work for the Pan Handle. Maybe a solution is folks want to come in to this nation then match them with a sponsor program that gets them work so that there is not a pool of people coming into our system and not contributing to supporting the social programs. Make it easier to come into this nation legally to fill the jobs legally that are there so people do not find it easier to break the law to feed and keep the family together.
When it comes down to it, the 'illegal aliens' are not the problem, they are the symptom, the problem is a social issue around responsible business ethics. Somebody out there is hiring these people and taking advantage of the scene which is of course the American Business way, keep your costs down.
When it comes down to it, how do we as a Nation support better ethical decissions? Decissions that take into account not just profit/loss but include social environmental and global impacts.
We need to get off this immediate return hobby horse we ride around on with our ten gallon hats afraid to admit our reality that we are not a nation, but we are part of a global family.
What do you think?
