"They're coming right for us!"

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.

Even my Mexican family members have an issue with this sudden surge of amnesty-seeking illegals taking on OUR government. They are furious that people break the law and want special treatment and have no interest in being Americans, just using the term and status for their benefit...ie, not being sent back to where they snuck away from.

A family member of mine works for Pete's market. They had to work on Christmas and Easter. But, guess who got off today...EVERYONE! They were all shut down for the day.

On a personal note. Ever check an ID and discover it is a fake resident alien card or Mexican consulate card?...I have. And then I am called a racist and yells of "discriminado" ring out.

I go to El Milagro on 26th Street and I have had people walk up beside me and try to get in front of me...playing stupid. Or is it playing me for stupid? Then someone else further up the line sees and lets them up front by them.

I had to laugh watching the news. "WE pay taxes" was the chant of individuals interviewed. Ha! Yeah, they pay taxes in payroll taxes. But, who also claims 10+ deductions and changes their ID's and social security numbers every year?....

Not to mention every illegal I have ever meet say they send money home to their family. There go our dollars!

I have only one thing to say..
