Outsource the Incarcerated Illegals

My basic thoughts on Illegal Immigration are:

  1. Open up legal immigration.
  2. Seal the Borders
  3. Send back the ones we catch
  4. Discourage employing Illegals
  5. Make English the national language to encourage assimilation
But I would like to expand upon the 3rd point about sending them back. We cannot just declare that they all go home and expect them to do it. And we don't have the resources to make them all go home. But, if we catch them breaking another law (besides being her illegally in the first place) we send them back to where they came from.

But the challenge to that is, "What if they have committed a series crime?" Shouldn't they do some time? Yes! But how about we send them back to their country of origin to be incarcerated? What's in it for that country? We would pay that country to jail that person. And while they may charge us more then it costs them, it would probably be cheaper then keeping them in jail here.

And while we are at it, we could send the ones that are crowding our jails now. This would reduce the prison population considerably and we could avoid having to build more jails. We could pay these International hosts annually for as long as these individuals were to be jailed. When their time is up, we stop paying. We would probably need to audit these prisons periodically but I think we could do all of this for a lot less then what we pay per prisoner now.

Glob, er, No Solar Warming!?

Why do we still call it "Global Warming" when it's bigger then the globe? If the polar ice caps on Mars are melting, shouldn't we call it "Solar Warming" instead?

When you have a "House Warming" party, you don't isolate one room and call it by that room. We don't call it a "Living Room Warming" because that is where the majority of the people will be. We don't call it a "Drive Way Warming" because that is where all of the SUV's are. And we certainly don't call it a "Bathroom Warming" party (even if there is an increase in the methane level there). We call it a "House Warming" party.

Therefore, we should broaden the scope of the warming warning. If we do that, perhaps we can try some of the fad fixes on a smaller scale to see if they work first. Before we subject the USA to the proposed draconian measures of the Kyoto Kra, er,... I mean accord, let's ban all SUV's and/or even all emissions on Mars. If the polar ice caps there come back, then we can start these measure on earth.

As a God fearing Steward of His handiwork, I have a responsibility to care for this planet in the best way that I can. However, this does not mean submitting to the worshipers of Gaia. They, NOT believing in a God that is bigger then themselves, feel that it all depends upon them. They want to control from a position of fear because they fear their future. On the other hand, as a Christian, I know that my future is secure in Him. I am accountable unto Him for all of my actions, but my future is His. And being who He is, that is secure. So, I shall call it Solar Warming in an effort to remember that this climate issue is not all about us but that God has a plan for all of us.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
(John 3:16 NKJV)
