Ancestry DNA Deal Cyber Monday

DNA Ancestry Deal Cyber MondayFor those who are into Genealogy and those who just want to discover their Ethnicity, prove or disprove old family stories,  you can not beat this deal. The offer end tonight.  Earlier this year I took mine when it cost $89.00 plus tax depending on the state you live in. The regular price is around a $100.00 bucks, so $69.00 plus tax again depending on where you live is a great deal. Also, when I did mine they offered me a membership on ancestry.com for $49.00 for 6 months instead of the normal price of $99.00.

Also, yo just might find some relatives you never heard of and make a connection!

Native American, Ethinicity, Donald Trump,
This is my results that I am sharing with you!

The Blame Game!

History Economy and Immigration Reform

The Blame Game!

 

 Blaming immigrants for past and current economic problems is nothing new, this argument has been around throughout our history where most blame Hispanics among other foreign cultures for low wages, no affordable housing, subpar living standards and the list goes on with this blame game.

Facebook live routersThe other day, I watched a live broadcast via Facebook produced by Router’s, and I must admit as the live comments scrolled by, that I witnessed several hateful and some rather cold-blooded comments pass by. The back-story of their broadcast pertained to asking an alien, their fears, and concerns under a Trump administration provided he does indeed follow through on his rhetoric’s.

There is a reason why students are taught history in grade school and college, the reason is that history has a tendency to repeat itself, unlike the election of 2016 that stunned many across the board where mouths dropped to the floor, eyes open yet caught in this psychedelic hypnotizing thick fog, others feeling the need to vomit from that clumpy spoiled milk, while others reached for the bourbon in a state of dismay.

If you watched Mr. Trump being interviewed on 60 Minutes and of course his rhetoric of deporting immigrant criminals, some may think this is new for calling for a mass deportation, but it is not.  The Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 under the Presidency of Adams,

 “No protesting the government? No immigrants allowed in? No freedom of the press. Lawmakers jailed? Is this the story of the Soviet Union during the Cold War? No. It describes the United States in 1798 after the passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts.” http://www.ushistory.org/us/19e.asp

Roosevelt, FDR, Economic depressionThe Great Depression of 1930 to 1950. The 30’s were enormously miserable and Franklin D. Roosevelt had to find a way to calm the citizens of the U.S, at the same time produce jobs for a starving society. Let us blame this on the Mexicans, deport them so that there will be jobs for our Americans.  The Economy and Immigration V also known as “The Mexican Repatriation”, not only was it a desperate time but also created a dark stain in our American History, they were treated less than human, created an environment of hate, deported close to ten thousand Mexicans if not more and roughly, half were Citizens of the U.S.

Forward to the 1940’s, during the year of 1940 an amendment was Bacero Programmade to fingerprint and registration of all aliens, 1942 led to the Bracero Program where Mexico and The U.S came to an agreement to allow what I would call the “Migrant Worker for farms”. This was the agreement because Farmers wanted cheaper labor and workers that would do the work. The Bacero Program lasted until around 1948-50, then we get the “Wetback Operation” 1952-1954. Kick them out! Military and Police joinedOperation Wetback. 1953, history, mexican culture forces and if you looked slightly Mexican whether you were a U.S born citizen, did not matter, you were gone!

It seems when we face hard economic times it is easier to play the Blame Game, provide scapegoats instead of facing certain facts of mismanagement, not passing bills on a timely manner because of squabbles within the Congress and Senate houses allowing the Governmental agencies like the park services to close, allowing escalation of debt from borrowed money. In 2011, John McCain (R-Ariz) actually blamed the Arizona and New Mexico’s wildfire on immigrants.

We are a diverse nation built on immigrants whom for the most part actually made it better, to blame certain problems that our nation faces are not the way to correct the factual problem that exists, certain fears that arise when violent crimes are committed, feeling or needing to oust bad weeds from the garden because of skin color, to blame all criminal activities, economic hardships to the swine flu on immigrants does not bear fruits, but instead our great U.S.S Nations sails in a circle lost in past mistakes that we should have learnt from.

The Day before Thanksgiving.

Faint whispers

Nimbus hovers over

Salty tears

Billie gently takes your hand

Sine wave flattens

Dissipating fog

Forgotten memories shine bright 

Roots strong as Damascus steel

Everything I Never Told You

Hello lovely ones. Just a few random thoughts from a chaotic mind. Firstly, I’d like to say that, I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to read and follow this blog. It means the world to me. I’ve connected with some really wonderful and talented folks. I’m grateful for those connections and I know that some of those friendships will carry-on for many years to come. Having said that, I will be cutting back on the amount of time I spend here. Life has taken on a very busy tone of late. I will still be posting but the frequencies of my posts will be more sporadic and sparse. My goal is to at least post once a week.

Secondly, I don’t want to get political but I will say that now more than ever, I am praying for our country.. It should be noted, I’m not even a…

You Want To Move To Canada? Yay!

So you don’t like Trump, you’re going to escape him by going to America’s 51st state. I like when you call us America’s hat, that makes you our shirt, cool, maybe grow some tits. People from everywhere are dying to get into Canada, but when they get here, it’s never quite what they expected. Before you go through all that time and effort, let me explain what you’re getting into.

You’re going to have to learn how to be polite! Try saying “thank you” once, just to practice. Also we say “sorry?” or “pardon?” when we can’t hear you, not “wut?”, we also say sorry to inanimate objects we bump into. If you don’t, people look at you weird.

Oh and the lovely french language, it’s so easy to learn, you’ll love it since it’s the only language spoken after work hours.

Oh no, he has a foyer in his…
