I will be having knee surgery tomorrow and will be out of action for a few days. Even though there is plenty to rant about, everybody thinks it is best that I just take a rest and give myself an opportunity to get over my surgery. So, I won’t be posting a blog this week, and next week will be determined by how I’m doing. I’ll be back with you soon.

There’s a lot going on. I try to pick a subject to comment on but sometimes there is just so much happening that it is difficult. So, I am going to speak on a number of things.

First, Kim Jong Un, part-time stand-in for the Pillsbury doughboy and dictator of North Korea. He is obviously a nut case with a death wish, but he also seems to have a death wish for his entire country. His people are scared of him because he is so erratic. Lil Kim is the only overweight individual in North Korea who lives a fantasy life at the expense of his own people. In North Korea, grass is considered a vegetable. Meat is the occasional dog who stumbles by. It is a desperate country with desperate people. He is begging for the world to take him out and he may very soon get his wish. Such an erratic moron is too dangerous to be ignored.

Why would anybody travel to that God forsaken place? There are currently four people being held for ransom by the North Koreans since they just killed their last hostage. It is just a matter of time for those four.

Next on my list of strangeness is the media’s unbelievable disrespect for our duly elected President. I heard that if Trump discovered a cure for cancer, the media would criticize him for putting researchers out of work. Their unbounded hatred for Trump is creating a situation which is rapidly rendering the media worthless at least and at worse, probably dangerous. The President’s approval ratings are headed up and the media’s are going into the toilet. The media seems to forget that the election is over and their anointed Queen had her derriere handed to her. To use the lib’s own phrase, we need to move on.

Then we have these twenty-four liberal Democrat Congress people who are trying to figure out a way to impeach the President using the twenty-fifth amendment to the Constitution. Read the amendment. These idiots have nothing and their little stunt is going nowhere. I have long thought we need to have IQ tests for incoming Congress people. If we did, many of the sitting members would have to find new jobs. If you looked at the districts they represent, you might get a better idea of the real problem.

Mark Zuckerburg of Facebook believes we should all have a “minimum annual income” guaranteed by the government. He seems to think that such a policy would lift people out of poverty. Sure it would, for about two weeks. That’s about how long it would take for all that money to land in the hands of a few smart entrepreneurs, fleece artists, and drug dealers. Sorry, Mark. In a free society we must earn our living. Government welfare is a joke destroying millions of lives in this country already. Adding more money to the fire would just exacerbate the situation

I believe in healthy debate. I believe in the right to disagree. Our first amendment gives us the right of free speech. I use that right every week when I prepare this column. But, I also believe in loyalty to our country. What used to be the “loyal opposition” has become the disloyal resistance. They are America haters who prefer socialism to capitalism. Travel to Greece, or even to Venezuela. See how your socialism really works. See what happens when you, as Margaret Thatcher once said, run out of other people’s money. These countries could soon be taken over by their neighbors because they are failures.

As you can see, there is a lot to talk about. I will spare you any more of my ranting until next week.

The IRS last week made an astounding announcement. They reported that as many as 1.9 million illegal aliens in this country had stolen or fictitious social security cards. Hmmm. Let’s see now. Our own government has said time and again that there are about 11 million illegal aliens in this country. So, if only 1.9 million have stolen SSNs, what are the others using for identification? What are they using to apply for welfare, Federal benefits, and any other goodies they want? Plus, what if I told you that the real number of illegals in this country was much closer to 25 million?

I set about trying to learn if and how so many illegals can get social security numbers. Trying to uncover the volumes of gobbledy goop that is government speak is a chore best left for lawyers who specialize in language designed to be unreadable. One report that I read stated that the Social Security Administration issued well over ten million social security numbers to non-citizens in the last few years. Why? Why would we issue social security numbers to non-citizens? According to the explanation, these cards are used for identification, to file taxes with the IRS, to apply for benefits from the Federal Government, etc. etc. There seems to be no end to the lame excuses our government uses to attempt to legitimize illegal aliens in this country. Don’t these government agencies understand the meaning of the term “illegal?”

Here’s a reality. Illegal aliens are just that. They are people who have trespassed into this country and live here illegally. Any service or benefit they receive, whether it be welfare, emergency room medical care, education, food stamps, or any other goodie, is received by them illegally. They are stealing from the legitimate citizens of this country and it needs to come to a stop.

This past week our House of Representatives passed two major pieces of legislation designed to curtail the illegal immigration problem. One dealt with “Sanctuary Cities” and the other was known as “Kate’s Law.” These bills are now on to the Senate and then to the President where he has indicated he will sign them.

The Sanctuary Cities bill would withhold Federal grants and funding from any city which refused to obey Federal Immigration law or refused to communicate with ICE regarding illegals in their cities.

Kate’s law, named for the tragically murdered young lady in San Francisco, Kate Steinle, will automatically land individuals in Federal Prison for a minimum of five years and up to ten years if they return to this country illegally after being deported. This law was introduced a while back but Harry Reid refused to allow it to be brought to the Senate floor for a vote. One of the many reasons you are unemployed Harry. I have asked this before and I would ask it again. Who could be against Kate’s law?

I have watched a TV show called Border Wars and it basically deals with the problems of our southern border. Time and again the people they arrest have been arrested many, many times for illegally trespassing into the US. Many of them go back and forth across our border as if it wasn’t even there. They bring drugs. They bring their poverty, and they bring disease. They come to have their children born in American hospitals. It’s a win win for them. One, the hospital stay is free and two, their child is automatically an American citizen. That’s another bit of nonsense that has to come to a stop.

Here’s a test. Trespass into Canada and try to get some of their free health care. Trust me. It will not end well for you.

Social Security numbers should be reserved for American citizens as they were always intended. This well could be one of the main reasons the Social Security Administration is running out of money and in such a mess. We need to get  handle on this now.
