Back to that immigration thing. Some guy in San Bernandino has the solution!
Make it illegal for illegals to have a place to live or vehicle. As a result illegal immigrants will put their heads down in shame and go home.
That’s fine in the world where tax cuts for the rich makes the economy boom. But in the world I live in, if the immigrant's employer can still employ him safely and cheaply, the guy will still have a job. As a result the homeless, but working chap will go to a homeless shelter. Shelters will fill up and we'll end up with new taxes to support them. The whole plan will end up costing money we don't have. Sounds very Republican-ish.
I still say the answer is to fine the corporations that choose to save money by hiring illegals instead of Americans. They're the real criminals.
Meanwhile, looks like the current administration in the White House got caught with their pants down with the phone records they wanted to review. A lot of folks don't know but they downloaded billions of phone records to look for calling pattern trends. It was a shoot in the dark and they didn't know what they were looking for, but after years of examining patterns and finding nothing, something was found.
About eleven days ago unexpected pikes occured in national calling patterns.
One of ways calls were examined was to look at call destinations and their geographic locations. Unusual peaks by destinations were found at various times of the day, once a day, for the last eleven days.
The CIA has become convinced that since all conventional means of world wide communication is comprimised, terrorists infiltrated a communications company and is creating and using these peaks as a sort of code. But no luck has been reached in cracking the code. Frustrated, the CIA contracted with a Japanese programing company the study the data. The facility is located on a small isolated Island off the coast of Japan which is privately guarded.
Neither of us ever broke the code, however, Isreal has successfully infiltrated the CIA and got some pieces of the puzzle and became convinced they had the answer when they came up with the Arabic equivalant of C, E, O, N.
Certain the word was O-C-E-A-N, they needed the rest of the code to find out the exact location of the next "Ocean Attack," which they were convinced would occur in the middle east. But the rest of the code was unobtainable.
Isreal's plan was perfect, if the US retaliated to an attack to the island, we would reveal that we gave sensitive material to a foreign country, so the private guards on the island were on their own in the event of an attack. All the information needed was right there for the asking.
The code wasn't so complicated once you knew the answer. The time of day of the artificial peak represented a letter of the Arabic alphabet. For example, a peak between 12:00 am and 12:59 am represented the first letter of a Arabic alphabet. Between 1:00 and 1:59 represented the second charater and so forth.
In a surprise attact which came from ships desguised as commercial vessels, Isreal's special forces stormed the outpost and slaughtered every person on the island and confiscated the data, bringing it back to the homeland. Realizing, there were mere hours before retaliation would come from Japan, the United Nations, the United States, or all three, the data was downloaded into a series of computers nicknamed "the sequencer" to obtain the location of the ocean attack.
They ran the sequencer and read the message...
"P-E-A-C-E-O-N-E-A-R-T-H" was all it said.
Go ahead and hate a neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of heaven, you can justify it in the end.
There won’t be any trumpets blowin’, come the judgement day.
On the bloody morning after…
one tin soldier rides away.
