Illegal Immigrants

The news out of New York last night was talking about a woman who was arrested for selling fake Green Cards to illegals. Cops say they are looking for people who were victimized by her. Huh? They break the law by being here and then they break the law by buying a fake Green Card, […]

I don’t know what they’re putting in the water these days, but I’m beginning to wonder if the whole world has gone nuts! I just don’t understand some of the things that are going on. Georgia recently enacted a tough new law on immigration enforcement, similar to the measures Arizona enacted last year, which allows […]

During the Vietnam War, and probably during every war since the first caveman threw the first spear at the guy in the next cave, there has been the truth as those far away perceived things, and the truth that the man on the ground experienced. More than once, during my time overseas, small skirmishes in […]

So now President Obama’s aunt, who has lived in this country illegally for years, has declared that the United States has an “obligation” to grant her citizenship.  “If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen,” Zeituni Onyango said in a television interview aired this week.

Since the Feds are ignoring the wishes of the majority of American citizens, who want our current laws against illegal immigrants enforced, […]

I think folksinger Woody Guthrie would be rolling over in his grave if he saw what was happening in the American Southwest these days. Guthrie won fame with his song This Land Is Your Land, but today we are losing our land to the drug smugglers and illegal aliens streaming across the Mexican border. If […]

If you think that illegal aliens are only a problem for border states like Arizona and Texas, think again. If you pay taxes, you are paying for the costs of dealing with these illegal trespassers in our country too! While states and the federal government are cutting back on basic services, laying off schoolteachers, closing […]

Almost all Americans are familiar with the fact that we once fought a Civil War, but not all that many of them realize that the War Between The States was not about slavery. Slavery was the buzzword, but the real issue was states’ rights. Did the federal government have the right to determine if a […]

Potpourri: a collection containing a variety of sorts of things; an assortment of items. That definition describes this new feature of the Bad Nick Blog. There are things that I’d like to mention from time to time that don’t justify a complete blog, random thoughts and observations, and the occasional short vent. You’ll find them […]

Back in my Army days, my company commander had the above words in a frame on the wall behind his desk. Captain Edgerton told me that people spend way too much time thinking about how to handle a situation, talking about how to handle it, and arguing about how to handle it. He wanted his […]
