Overturning Dim corruption: Voter ID

President Trump wants it, so there’s a chance that Dim corruption on the point will at last be overturned.

“In this country, the only time you don’t need [an ID] is when you want to vote…” he said. “But we’re turning it around.”

Other countries—including Mexico whence cometh the illegals the Dims want to vote for them without identification—have Voter ID. It’s past time for us to have it too.

12-year-old sex in Mexico

The age of legal sexual consent in North America is between 16 and 18 years old. But just over the southern border, in Mexico, it is 12. That’s no longer a phenomenon of Muslim countries.

“Federal law in Mexico now establishes the age of 12-years as the age of legal consent, while the age at which there are no restrictions for consensual sexual activities is 18-years (sex with someone as young as 12-years is legal, but can be open to prosecution if deceit, force, or an abuse of authority was used.)”

Barbarous. Pedophilia, straight up.

The Open Borders Mob

Save the chil-rens. Save the chil-rens. Save the chil-rens!

What nonsense. Hollyweird. The Mediacrats. Laura Bush (!)

They all want open borders and will do anything to get them. Lie. Steal.

Stay the course, President Trump. They won’t love you even if you fold.

The Tecate Journals

Author Keith Bowden’s superb writing is what carries this extraordinary story of mountain biking/raft- and canoe-cruising of the Rio Grande from El Paso in far west Texas to Brownsville on the Gulf of Mexico.

His encounters with riverside Mexicans, thanks to his fluency in Spanish, are fascinating. Although he had previously lost his young daughter to cancer, one likes to think her spirit was with him over the loneliest stretches of the river’s wilderness.

The urban sections of the river, from Laredo to Brownsville, are equally compelling thanks to his linguistic ability, but it’s the upper reaches of the river where he goes for days without seeing anyone that make the tale.

The Texas-Mexico border: Safe and sound

“Our southern border is safe and sound. That’s what I found tracing it by bicycle. The one thing I didn’t find on the border that I expected to find everywhere, growing like scrub brush in the desert, was anger. I assumed Mexicans would be angry with Americans, intruders like me. I assumed Texans would be angry with Mexicans. I was wrong on both counts. These are generous people with centuries of a shared culture.”

A good read.

The Baby Bust

The WSJ’s Best of The Web argues for more legal immigration based on an historically-low birth rate for American women:

“American women are having children at the lowest rate on record, with the number of babies born in the U.S. last year dropping to a 30-year low, federal figures [show]…

“The general fertility rate for women age 15 to 44 was 60.2 births per 1,000 women—the lowest rate since the government began tracking it more than a century ago…”

With European women likewise giving birth at historically low rates, the West’s declining (and simultaneously aging) population should be grounds for statistical worries, yes, but more immigration? When unemployment among blacks and legal Hispanics is at an all-time low? Maybe not.

Cinco de Mayo

A Mexican mayonnaise festival.

Me and Barbara Ellen skipped the tacos today in favor of Chinese.
