A Recipe for Electoral Disaster – American’s go deeper in debt, while Illegal Immigration and giveaways are front and center.





Photographs of children entered illegally and housed in the U.S - Houston Chronicle, Breitbart TX

It would be easy enough for individuals in the United States, fully employed with a robust middle-class and actual opportunities for all current U.S. citizens to welcome the thousands of immigrants pouring over the border; however that is simply not the case. With citizens going deeper into debt and a full 35% of those facing debt collectors(ABC News), with a constant drumbeat about compassion for children it is becoming increasingly difficult to accept the “party line”. The news articles such as photographs in the Houston Chronicle on a story regarding boarder militias, include scores of photographs depicting rooms crammed with what can only be seen as young adults, men, and pregnant women, with few “children” included, only fuel the anger.

When seniors are finding their medications either unavailable or priced through the roof, as no longer covered, the blame is being placed on the Administrations programs, when taxes and fees suddenly rise, it is not without a bit of angst that those who voted and supported their politician’s are now shopping. Much of the media is singing praises, while those listening are tuning out and wondering how much of what is left of their salaries is being sent to support individuals who will, in all likelihood, never contribute to the American tax pot.

The only way to end this side show and do it correctly, is to immediately surround the border with national guards that would, when someone crosses, refuse entry. Throw the ball in Mexico’s court. The general story line is that these youngsters are fleeing gangs and violence in their own country; yet, U.S. readers understand that there are plenty of gangs in this county. One only needs to read the death tolls in cities small and large to understand that those coming are not fleeing but possibly joining in the melees that are turning their cities into war zones.

Meanwhile the nations of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, cast blame on the U.S. as the problem, being such drug addicts. That would be the truth if, for example, there was not the push to legalize marijuana, or the fact that drugs can be manufactured right here, illegally, in the U.S. Would these nations have strict drug sentencing laws, it would not matter if there was a demand, it would irradiate their own problems, The answer is suggested to be more “funds” sent south. One might want to withhold their funds, until such time as there are guidelines in place to combat gangs in their own nations. It is extremely popular to blame American first, and then hold out one’s hands for more taxpayers’ funds, however, that is growing older by the second.

Where will the backlash be? One can understand that in the election in November there will be changes coming to Washington, however, it won’t be a moment too soon. Those in power currently, suggesting all is well with the U.S. when it is clearly financially on the edge, are potentially risking more than an election. Impeachment is bandied about, but by the Democrats to raise funds for their elections. Rather than work towards shutting down the border and yes, deporting those who have stepped foot across without clear legal claims, this mess will continue to haunt those that perpetuate this, not for one election cycle, but potentially for decades.

Massachusetts Protests Illegal Immigration – Rallies around the Commonwealth. Nationwide the situation does not bode well for the Democrats in 2014 and 2016



This weekend there were several rallies around the Commonwealth in opposition to the Governors’ acceptance of housing illegal immigrant children from Central America. On large protest was in Boston, at the capital, the video is available below or at YouTube.



A another smaller one was held in the pouring rain in Chicopee, MA (one of the proposed communities to house at a military base.) The photo’s from the Chicopee Police Department (in attendance) are posted to their Facebook page, the video is available here on Youtube. Notice the reference to the “peaceful demonstration” which all citizen protests of this nature generally are – peaceful.

There is no wonder, with a host of MA residents from all political parties objecting strongly to the housing of these children here, and placing the blame squarely on the administration and the Democrat Party, that the President’s poll numbers are in the tank and the latest CNN poll suggests Mitt Romney would win today.

In addition, the White House is spreading rumors that he is about to be impeached! although a white House aide, cannot name who might impeach him. The rumors are twofold - (and several people, both in and out of government are calling for his impeachment), one it’s a grand fundraiser and two it may garner the same sympathy for Obama and it did for Clinton (that is also a gross miscalculation). The leadership in the house and Senate (GOP) would not, if they have not completely lost their minds, and one doubts that, they would impeach or attempt to impeach this President. The reason is simple; he is the largest tool the GOP has for winning the next two elections in, what can only be believed as a landslide.

That brings up the lack of Democrat candidates for the corner office, or those credible enough to run, and those most likely to do so, will be swimming against a tsunami, let alone a tide. This issue has brought to bear the normal 11 o’clock news voter to dig a little bit deeper to find out what else may have gone wrong lately. A side note: It is not that all Democrats that are onboard with the Administrations handling and intention for these “children” (in quotes as majority are over 15 and potential gang members), not so. One former Mayor of Chicopee, MA who this bloggers hopes will run for higher office, has suggested that the California site: Camp Pendleton be used as a facility to host all border crossers until they would be able to be deported or united with facility members – suggesting that it held over 50,000 refugees during the Viet Nam War. He also has called for calm and he believes that the administration cannot move the “children” to Massachusetts unless congress authorizes them to do so. Yes, Virginia, there are fiscally conservative, human and centrist liberals in Massachusetts.

New England – Camping with Your Dogs – Best Experiences

First in what one hopes is a series



A Morning Walk on Sand Beach

This blogger had spend hours of research on possible campsites that offered accommodations for not one, but three dogs – in New England there were two. Most campsites offer “pet friendly” options, however, in reading the fine print, one finds that dogs must be on leash at all times, and are not allowed in certain areas of the campground (including any beach-sites), most are confined to one dog, no more, with specific leash lengths (6 feet being most common) – to this dog owner, hardly friendly. Finally, I happened upon Old Quarry Ocean Adventures, in historic Stonington, Maine. What to know: Multiple, well-behaved, dogs accepted off-leash with owners, self-contained property offering: sailing, boating, kayaking, hiking and yes, there are beaches nearby. They also boast a fine take-out service, with lobster dinners at extremely reasonable prices, lobster rolls one could die for, and a choice of “boxed” lunches, with assorted wraps, breakfasts, and the works! The campsites are large, limited to 13, with additional overflow” sites available. (RV Parking as well).

Excessive or prolonged barking is not appreciated, one should pick up after one’s dogs, and the alternative to not so well behaved dogs, is to keep them on leash if the tendency is to invade the neighbors campsite to visit and wreck mayhem with the neighbors dog(s). Sadly, for this blogger, that would describe my three troublemakers, however, leashed, they enjoyed themselves just the same. (They may have believed they were at a large dog-park, and wanted to mix it up a bit with new friends.)



Relaxing after a day walking about!



Maxmillion loves boating

The beach – Sand beach, although dogs must be on-leash and picked up after, they are not restricted by hours – it is a beautiful haven, with a set of trails leading to breathtaking views, and a short drive from Old Quarry.

Stonington, Maine, is located east of Augusta, or Bangor, and the approximate drive-time from Massachusetts is 7 hours. The drive from the Maine Turnpike offers scenic vistas, grand mountain views of the bay and islands.

Having not camped in 30 some-odd years, let alone with three dogs, the time spent at Old Quarry Ocean Adventures was one of the best vacations experienced. Rating AAA – for the food, the activities and the treatment of one’s best friends.
