O'Reilly May Call for Boycott Against Mexico

Oh, and folks, you are probably aware of the threat by Mexico to enter lawsuits against the U.S. if we should be so bold as to (gasp!) actually determine who and what comes across our border.

Well, I have been boycotting all things Mexican for quite some time, now, but O'Reilly, on Fox, says that the first time the Mexicans try to sue us for (gasp!) trying to pretend that we are a sovereign nation with legitimate concerns about national security, he, O'Reilly, will call for a nation-wide boycott, beginning with travel and going all the way to burritos, against the Mexicans.

Of course, we can all be pretty sure that whatever the individual private citizen tries to do, Our Leader will compensate Mexico for any significant financial problems it faces as a result of any boycott.

O'Reilly may not be the brightest bulb in the lamp, but he's right on about this.

    Quite right, too! Buoycott everything! Who do these people think they are?

    I just wish I had said all of this first. I wouldn't go to anywhere in Mexico even if paid for by a "patron." I usually find Made-in-Mexico too late, on the serial number sticker of something I bought. However, from here on out, I am boycotting Mexico until they rectify Mexico. That means that this will be a rest-of-my-life boycott.

    I can't imagine for the life of me what these people expect of the States. They seem to think it's their God-given right to enter the States and work illegally. Unbelievable!

    They are doing exactly as we taught them to treat us (speaking for the government, of course). They have become beggars who come to your house for a meal and bitch about it.

    It was so incredible - what Bush is doing - that for a long time, I just refused to believe it. But he, like the European Union, is following the UN script for a borderless world.

    The whole idea of a borderless world goes back a long way, even before the publication of a book in the sixties called "Iron Mountain." It was thought to be a fictional account of a conspiracy theory at the time, but looking at what's going on now, maybe it was a "leak" from something that was really going on!

    Now that the EU, over the "no" vote of most of the citizens of the various European countries, has been established, Bush Junior obviously thinks the time is right for him to do the same over here.

    If you really want to throw up, and see what the UN has in mind for us, do go read The article is called "The UN's Borderless World," by Joseph Klein, published on 24 April.

    Who needs a damned crystal ball when the plan, in black and white, is right in front of us?

    All we have to do is say "no." As Jefferson pointed out, if the government strays from its legitimate function, we have the right and obligation as citizens to replace it.

    I don't remember the last time I saw a "Made in Mexico" on any item. Everyone I see now has "Made in China".
    What does Mexico make? Textiles/clothing? Even Taco Bell is an American company.
    All this crap that we can't send 6000 American troops to guard the border is nothing more than pure media speculation. We have 35,000 Americans protecting South Korea's border. National guardsmen have a mandatory two weeks per year commitment, what difference does it make where they are? The only additional cost would be transportation and the initial startup costs.

    I appreciated your kind words over at Always on Watch.

    American Crusader:

    My gosh was it good to get hear from you. We know you have your hands full medically, so we did not expect it. Please know that you can count us among your supporters.

    As for that Made in Mexico, well, it is about as bad as Made in China. Here's an example. Two days ago, the tech from DirecTV came to replace our ailing satellite box with a new one. I was taking that carton to the garage today when I noticed the Hecho en Mexico (I'm not set up for accents) on a techie label on the box. Last month, I got a boom box from Costco, and it was hecho'd as well.

    I don't know how to get around the Mexico or China bits any longer. I want not to use them, but I think I would have to go live like a Muslim. And that just ain't me.

    I will do what I can, however. I really would love to help turn off their tourist trade.

    As for the national guard, Bush reminds me of trying to stop a hurricane from hitting by sending in the national guard before the storm arrives, not afterward. We need 36,000 more border patrol and many fewer with a damned good fence (a la Minuteman). 6000 guardsmen is meant to suck us all in that Bush is "doing something." I, for one, am not sucked in.

    A bit more on lawsuits on the part of Mexico against the United States, from this source:

    ...An immigration reform group responded Wednesday, saying that Mexico should stay out of U.S. domestic policy; and a legal advocacy group said the Mexican government was more likely to secretly fund lawsuits by individual illegal aliens than to challenge the U.S. directly....

    "It's more likely that Mexican nationals would receive legal support, paid for by the Mexican government, if they challenged their detention by the National Guard, or any other new border enforcement that Mexico wants to challenge," Fitton explained....

    I missed the call for boycott by O'Reilly because I rarely watch him anymore. His doctrine of militant in-your-face, preemptive fence-straddling got to be more than I could bear.

    While a boycott would be emotionally gratifying, ultimately it would accomplish little I fear. The Left would issue a call for their constituents to stock up on marijuana and cocaine.

    We each know our duty on this one: by all means, boycott.
