On this day in 1898, Commodore George Dewey gave the command "You may fire when you are ready, Gridley," as an American naval force destroyed a Spanish fleet in Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War.
And today across America at all the various Pro-illegal immigration rallies I would give a similar command: "You may fire when you are ready!" I couldn't help the shameless South Park reference in the title.
Aaaahhhhhh .. to be King. Or to live in a nutshell and count myself a King of infinite space. There's the rub, good horatio. But I digress.
This photo is from a school rally in Dallas in which students protested what else, on behalf of illegal immigration, by waving the only flag they care about - the Mexican flag. This young lady held an American flag and was attacked for doing so.

See Michelle Malkin for a Socialist placard invoking mass demonstrations on behalf of illegals.
Today, go out and shop, spend, buy and study. Make a note of all the businesses that are closed today and, when they reopen, let them know that you won't support them. Spend your money elsewhere.
For me - I'm giving my mechanic $200 to fix my car and I've just finished reading Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. I never read it but knew some of the most famous lines "Beware the Ides of March", "Et tu Brute?" and "Friends, Romans and Countrymen, lend me your ears. I come to bury Caesar not to praise him."
Also at work today I refuse to speak to anyone in Spanish. I'm boycotting the use of the Spanish language. Anyone that comes over the air looking for a translator is SOL today.
As a segue back into Julius Cesar,Sic semper tyrannis is a Latin phrase meaning "Thus always to tyrants" or "Thus ever be to tyrants". Brutus says that right after he stabs Cesar. Here's my version of that truism.
