Today was a pretty good day for the most part. We bought a new refrigerator and waiting for it to be delivered. I started out the morning about 5:00 am installing Microsoft Windows Vista on two of our computers. Then I had to install much of the software. Between the installations, I moved our refrigerator out to the garage to use as a second unit. Before I could do that I had to replace two wall outlets that were loose. I had to remove the doors to get the refrigerator out of the house and the garage side door to get it inside. I had to replace a valve for the ice maker hose because it wanted to keep spraying. I was pretty fortunate that everything went together without too much trouble.
I have not been too successful in my eating lately. I lost 22 pounds and then the last week I have been going nuts eating everything. Time to put the breaks on that. I also failed in getting my school work done in a timely manner. I really do not like procrastination; in fact, I am usually early on everything I do. Not this weekend. I had several lessons that I waited until the last day to get a couple of them done and that was scary for me. I usually like to get work done early and not have to worry about something coming up preventing me from completing it. Well the time finally changes next week and I am glad. I really do not like daylight savings time. I wish they would just leave it alone. I really do not believe their arguments that it saves energy costs. It is a ridiculous argument.
Next week we are suppose to have a new immigration law to prevent hiring illegal aliens in Oklahoma. It is suppose to give law enforcement the freedom to gather them up and deport them. Now just as suspected, there are groups trying to get the law over turned. Why do you have to have a new law to be able to arrest law breakers? I am of the thought that we have a system to allow people to come to the United States. Just enforce the system that is in place. I believe that immigration should be legal as long as they follow the legal path. Mexico is not an oppressed nation and I know this because I have been there. There are rich and poor just like the United States. If they were an oppressed Communist country, I could see allowing them free passage but even then, they should be documented.
The Constitution, requires that every ten years a census is done to distribute legislators based on the population. If there is not an accurate count, then representation will not be legitimate. Secondly, income taxes are collected to pay for government programs. When people are not here legally, then they are not in the income tax and social security systems contributing to the welfare of American citizens. Many are advocating giving government benefits to illegal aliens. This allows them to collect without contributing. When people identify them as undocumented, they are willfully misrepresenting them in an attempt to soften the fact that they are illegal. If they are here legally, I am very supportive of them obtaining benefits along with other legal Americans. I did not plan on getting into that because when you do, people often misunderstand your opposition as being racist. This is a very inaccurate assessment and in some cases it is done on purpose in an attempt to quiet those who feel this way. I hope my take on this is understood for the way it was meant. I guess that is enough of that topic. I will post more later.
