A 1960s CHILD WATCHTOWER (PLEASE WRITE TO: A60sCHILDMAILBOX@aol.com)

" The More We Learn, The More We Realize Just How Little We Know, And How Much There Is Still To Be Learned " I come from the dramatic, revolutionary, albeit violent, yet 'magical' 60s. Opinionated and challenging, I write about current events, geopolitics, globalization, history, music, mainly classic rock, philosophy, pop culture, politics, religion, sociology, and anything else that defines the person which I am. 60s Child

Name:
Location: Miami, Florida, United States

I belong to a special generation, the 'Baby Boomer Generation', all 70 million of us. Mine is the countercultural, culture-changing, music-influenced, society-altering, rebellious, and revolutionary generation which grew up during the dramatic and violent, while in many ways exciting and 'magical' 1960s. After all these years, I still feel totally identified with the 60s, as that decade defines me. Although I was both a participating and observing member of the 'flower generation', I am a conservative in my political and sociological principles. As much as I appreciated the freedom and radical liberalism of the 60s, I nevertheless did not support the anti-war movement. I am also Roman Catholic, and teach catechism. AS I CONSIDER THE MUSIC OF THE 60s AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE CULTURE, AND CONSIDERING THAT EVEN AFTER 40 YEARS IT RETAINS ITS POWERFUL ALLURE, I WISH TO SHARE SOME OF MY 60s FAVORITE GROUPS: ANIMALS, B.BOYS, BEATLES, B.GEES, B.S.&T, CHICAGO, CREAM, C.C.R., C.S.N.&Y, E.L.O., E.L.P., 4 SEASONS, G.F.R., J.HENDRIX, KINKS, LED ZEP, MAMAS & PAPAS, M.BLUES, R.STONES, R.ORBISON, S.& G., WHO, YARDBIRDS EMAIL: A60sCHILDMAILBOX@aol.com

OUR OUTRAGED NEIGHBORS TO THE SOUTH





WHAT AN OUTRAGE!!!



PEDOPHILES OUTRAGED AT PARENTS FOR NOT PERMITTING SMALL CHILDREN TO WALK ALONE TO SCHOOL!

MASS MURDERERS OUTRAGED AT GUN SHOPS FOR REQUIRING I.D.s!

REVENGEFUL STUDENTS OUTRAGED AT SCHOOLS FOR HAVING METAL DETECTORS!

KIDS OUTRAGED AT CONVENIENCE STORES FOR REQUIRING I.D.!

BURGLARS OUTRAGED AT HOME OWNERS FOR HAVING ALARM SYSTEMS!

DRUG ADDICTS OUTRAGED AT PHARMACIES FOR NOT SELLING THEM NEEDLES!

ATHEISTS OUTRAGED AT RELIGIOUS CITIZENS FOR BUILDING CHURCHES!

CEOs OUTRAGED AT THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION FOR WANTING TO INSPECT THEIR BOOKS!

MUSLIM TERRORISTS OUTRAGED AT ISRAELI POLICE FOR WANTING TO INSPECT THEIR 'BACKPACKS' IN PUBLIC PLACES!

You're starting to get my drift?

So we now get to the clincher.

It is not enough that the Mexican government has actually printed manuals with instructions on how to cross the border into the U.S. undetected. They are now angry because the U.S. government is tightening its borders more.

"Illegal alien", according to Webster's dictionary:

Illegal; not according to or authorized by law, unlawful, illicit.

Alien; relating, belonging, or owing allegiance to another country or government, foreign.

NEED I EXPLAIN ANY FURTHER!!!!!


Recent ACTUL news item:
MEXICO OUTRAGED AT U.S.
FOR REINFORCING ITS BORDER,
THUS ALLOWING FEWER ILLEGAL ALIENS
TO SNEAK ACROSS


Mexican President Vicente Fox was hoping that U.S. immigration policy would become more lenient. The opposite has occurred.

When President Vicente Fox came into office in late 2000, he hoped his legacy would be U.S. immigration revisions that would allow Mexicans to cross the border into the United States and work legally.

Now, that vision is crumbling in the face of legislation President Bush signed earlier this month that authorizes the construction of more walls along the border and in effect invalidates Mexico-issued ID cards for Mexicans living in the United States.

Fox is pledging to continue his efforts for migrants until his term ends in December 2006. But officials are angry and disheartened at what they see as walls going up between the United States and Mexico instead of coming down.

Fox's government is planning to send a diplomatic protest over the law, the first the country has ever formally presented to the United States.

Fox expressed his anger in a recent speech: ``I respect the sovereignty of the United States and its freedom to take such decisions and measures, but frankly it's not the right approach between friends and neighbors.''

Much of the news coverage of his comments focused on the racial overtones of his defense of Mexican migrants' role in the U.S. economy -- he said Mexicans ''are doing jobs that not even blacks want to do.'' The Mexican government eventually apologized for offending African-Americans.

FRUSTRATION

But the comments underlined Fox's frustration and anxiety at the passage of the so-called Real ID Act, which was attached to an $82 billion spending bill to pay for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The legislation requires that ID cards meet strict federal requirements in three years if they'll be used to request U.S. government services or board an airliner. It also allows the Homeland Security Department to construct a second wall and other barriers around the 150-foot metal wall that's along the border between Tijuana and San Diego.
It wasn't supposed to turn out this way. A rancher and former governor of Guanajuato state, Fox made immigration a top priority. During his campaigns, he promised to fight for an open border and for legalizing Mexicans in the United States. He expected Bush, also a former governor with a ranch, to be an ally.

Fox and Bush began a close relationship after they took office, Fox in December 2000 and Bush a month later. They vowed to enrich ties and work on legalizing or giving amnesty to at least 4 million Mexicans and other undocumented workers in the U.S.

But a chill followed the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Bush didn't push an immigration accord. Fox didn't support the U.S.-led war in Iraq. Last year, there was renewed optimism when Bush proposed a program to allow temporary workers, similar to guest programs of the past. But it's lingered in Congress.

Sens. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and John McCain, R-Ariz., introduced a bill earlier this year that would allow immigrants to seek legal status after living in the United States for three years, but its passage thank goodness is considered an uphill battle.

Immigration is the one political constant in Mexico, ahead of next year's July presidential elections. Even Fox's worst political enemies agree with his criticism of the United States. Mexico City Mayor Andrés Manuel López Obrador of the left-of-center Democratic Revolutionary Party, the favorite to succeed Fox, said the United States should help Mexico create jobs, not build walls.

UNITED PROTEST

Others agree, calling for a ``united, nonpartisan protest.''

''This is an anti-immigration campaign without precedent. It's Mexico against Republicans, [Calif. Gov. Arnold] Schwarzenegger, the Minutemen in Arizona, Bush's entire Cabinet,'' said Primitivo Rodriguez, a Mexican political scientist who specializes in immigration and is working to pass a bill here that would allow Mexicans abroad to vote in the 2006 elections.

The anger over the U.S. legislation is such that diplomatic protests are only one of the plans. Mexican community leaders have advocated going on strike to prove that U.S. employers couldn't survive without cheap Mexican labor.

''These measures are myopic, racist and xenophobic,'' said Amalia Garcia, the left-of-center governor of Zacatecas state, which has one of the country's highest emigration rates. ``Building walls and preventing migrants from getting a driver's license don't solve any security problems.''
Whatever you say, Madame Governor.
Tell you what, rather than have your unwanted, unemployable (in your own country) trash sweat it out trying to cross through the dessert, we will send air-conditioned buses to pick them up, and we will feed them on the way over, while preparing brand new tax-supported dwellings for them to live in, even while our own poor don't have homes of their own. And those pregnant women that are used to cross over just to get free medical attention at our tax-supported public hospitals, we will give them for free the best medical care which we Americans must pay for.
You want us to give amnesty to the illegals already here, all ten million of them? And you promise that once we grant them amnesty you will keep an additional ten million from trying to cross over"?
Please, Madame Governor, and you Mr. Fox, too, look up the words "illegal aliens" in the dictionary, if it is that you can read at all. Because honestly, you seem to be quite illiterate, since you cannot understand what "illegal alien", and "it is the law" mean.
Oh, another outrage: MEXICAN POLITICIANS OUTRAGED BECAUSE THE US EXPECTS THEM TO UNDERSTAND OUR LAWS!
