For the new immigrants, coming to the USA from Venezuela, etc...

Battle Mountain, Nevada, would be a good area for new immigration and growth. The area has gold, and jewelry can be made from the gold, etc. And the area has huge cattle ranches, and the beef can be made into beef stew and can be canned and shipped around the world, and other things can be made from the beef, and dog food can be made from the bones from the beef, etc, and stuff can be made from the leather from the cattle, etc. Many jobs can be created in Battle Mountain.

As people from Venezuela are looking for new places to live, the people of Venezuela can consider Battle Mountain, Nevada, USA.

For those who wish to study, there is the Great Basin College in Elko...

There is plenty of land to build on, and the prices are low. The only bad thing, is that it is extremely cold in the winter, it is not warm like California and Southern Nevada, etc. 

Of note too, is that there is plenty of cheap land in Texas; Texas is huge.

Hey Uno, do you think that the Princess would like it here in Anaheim? Is she a Disney fan? I wonder.

For sure she would like Malibu.

Here is a link to check out the Malibu beach house where I lived, it is an awesome house, if I was wealthy I would buy it. I lived there for one year.

You had to go through two security gates to get to our home in Malibu. So it was totally safe. And the Princess loves horses and there is horse property in Malibu, I lived by two horse stables within walking distance.

And I know that I would love Monaco. I love Cannes, and Rome, and I am sure that I will love Monaco too. And I want to meet a good financier in Monaco.

Thanks for the props Uno, and you never know, I might get the Princess.

Salute,

I was arguing on the web against the building of the wall, and an argument that was being used against me was that right now there are supposedly all of these great entitlements, and they want to block out the Latinos so that they can give more benefits to the people who are American citizens, it is really sick, and it is not what America is all about. And I would never be friends with anyone who makes money from locking babies in cages. It is horrible the way that some people are thinking.

We need to bring back factories to the USA, and people need to get real jobs actually creating good stuff that people can use. People need to take pride in honest work again. We do not need to build walls so that American citizens can get better welfare benefits, or better benefits as ICE agents, border patrol agents, and guards at baby prisons, etc, people need to get real jobs. 

We need to support a labor movement in China, so that the Chinese workers can be paid fair and can be treated well, etc, and to improve human rights in China, etc. We need to support the workers in China the same way that we supported Solidarity in Poland. And that will help to improve the whole world economy.

The American Dream was never about getting welfare benefits and being guards at baby prisons.

No broad brush as Trump would have us believe...

You cannot point to one person from a group, and then use a broad brush to condemn the entire group. Each individual is different. And for each example of a person who has done bad things, there is an example of someone else who has done good things.

You cannot point to a criminal in Latin America, and say that the eight hundred million people south of the border are all criminals, because they are not, many people south of the border are good Christians and many help the homeless and the less fortunate. You could point to a good person who is helping the homeless, just as easy as pointing to a criminal. 

When Trump points to a criminal and tries to say that all Latinos are criminals, it is false. He could have just as easily pointed to someone feeding the homeless.

Of note too, is that affects people's images, from our perspective and from theirs. We could view them as good hard working Christians who help the less fortunate and whom have a strong sense of family and community, and they could view themselves that way, instead of believing that they are all criminals as Trump would have us believe.

Jobs are being created now in Mojave, but they need to do more to create more jobs there, they need to build more factories in Mojave. And they have guys like Richard Branson helping to create jobs there. 

Link...

https://www.glassdoor.com/Job/mojave-manufacturing-jobs-SRCH_IL.0,6_IC1146581_KO7,20.htm

People built a million houses in the Antelope Valley, but there are not any jobs there. So, the people are stuck driving in heavy traffic to work in Los Angeles, or they are unemployed. Jobs need to be created in Mojave so that the people of the Antelope Valley can work close to where they live, and to get people off of welfare and to get them working. 

There are top secret jobs building secret aircraft and satellites and stuff out in the desert but you need to be highly qualified to get those jobs. There needs to be jobs for the average guy, and for people who are unskilled labor.

They were not thinking when they gave them permits to build in an area where there are not any jobs. They should be required to give permits to build factories and to create jobs for every so many houses that are built. It is stupid to build a million houses with no jobs.

They need more factories in Mojave, they need to create jobs.

Salute,

Tony V.

A long time ago I sent an email to the Mojave City Council, and they read my email during a meeting at city hall. I have been telling them for a long time that Mojave needs factories.

On the issue of Toys R Us...

When I was a kid I loved Toys R Us. Maybe Ivanka Trump can save Toys R Us, or someone. Maybe let it close, to get rid of debt, and then open it back up debt-free. I heard that debt was the reason they are closing, maybe they can re-open and operate without the debt. 

Another store that people can re-open and operate is the Broadway department store. I worked at a Broadway in Pasadena, CA, we had great stuff, it was a cool store. We had the nice expensive stuff that you cannot get at Walmart.

Here is what the ACLU is saying...

ACLU

Hi Tony –

Yet again, President Trump showed shocking disregard for this country’s laws when he suggested flouting due process in a series of weekend tweets: "When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came." No judges or courts? That's not how this country works.

Trump has laid bare his intentions to deport immigrants en masse and bring immigration to a halt – and now he and his administration are trying desperately to look as if they're solving the family separation crisis they started. Speaker Ryan's immigration bill proposes the unacceptable "solution" of cramming families in detention centers – and Congress has even proposed funding for more beds.

Last week, your calls to Congress scared Ryan into tabling the vote on his bill. Now he's drafting an even harsher version to appeal to the most anti-immigrant factions of House. This is urgent: Call your House representative and demand they vote NO on Ryan's disastrous immigration bill. Putting children in jail is another Trump-made crisis – not a fix.

Ryan's bill offers even more harmful immigration policies disguised as compromise. It does nothing to address Attorney General Sessions' "zero tolerance" policy on prosecuting asylum seekers, and it fails to put a check on the government's authority to separate families. It militarizes the border, turning communities in the southern United States into virtual war zones with soldiers on every street corner. The bill would also hold Dreamers hostage in exchange for Trump's border wall and other anti-immigration wishes – Dreamers would get legal protections only if Trump gets his $23 billion wall.

Call your representative today and tell them to reject Ryan's immigration bill. We need to shut down Ryan's dangerous bill immediately, and we need to act now because Congress could vote at any minute.

Let's be clear – the Trump administration is responsible for the moral crises occurring at our border. Family separation is their policy, whether they admit it or not. We can't let Speaker Ryan and President Trump use this crisis to sneak more harmful policies through the proposed bill.

Our calls worked last week, and they can work again if we all raise our voices.

En la lucha,

Lorella Praeli
ACLU Director of Immigration Policy and Campaigns

--------------------------

So, there is that.

And I still support having a giant concert on the border to raise money to help the children and their families.

Salute,

I am sitting here listening to Pantera. The drummer just died, his name was Vinnie Paul. He went to join the guitar player, Dime, in Heaven.

Here is a video of them playing in Moscow, after the Russians gained their freedom...

California, 9 Other States Plan to Sue Trump Administration for Separating Immigrant Families

The good people are sending a huge backlash to the Trump administration, and the backlash is growing and growing.

Trump is racist, along with his followers, but most Americans love the Latinos.

With the new movie about Gotti, Gotti was always a scumbag, but Carlo Gambino was a great man.

Carlo Gambino was a great man, who did a lot of great things. Carlo Gambino helped a lot of people. I had a friend who used to baby-sit for Carlo Gambino in Long Island, and after my friend attended high school Carlo Gambino got him a job in the garment industry so that my friend could earn money to go to college. My friend worked as a buyer for a big clothing line, and he earned enough money to study business for four years in college without having to work while he attended college. After college my friend got a job as a studio executive at Paramount, and then later he worked for Universal. My friend had a great life thanks to Carlo Gambino. My friend was kind of like Finn from "Great Expectations."

Carlo was a great man who helped a lot of people.

Salute,

Tony V.


My friend died about twelve years ago, he was a great guy, maybe someday I will make a movie about him. My movie would be way better than a movie about Gotti.
 
And a funny thing, one show that my friend worked on was "Family Ties."

Salute,

Tony V.

My friend went to the Metropolitan Opera and saw Luciano Pavarotti live, several times, he did all kinds of cool stuff. Carlo was a great man who helped him a lot.

Bambu,

The USA is a free nation, with good, free, Christian neighbors, and we do not need any walls.

And the USA is for everyone.

For two hundred years the USA did not need any walls, and we do not need any walls now. 

And 9/11 did not have anything to do with Mexico or with our southern border. 

We won two world wars without building any walls on our borders.

We do not need any walls. And the people of the USA are good free people who are against walls, just as Reagan told Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. Reagan made all of our immigrants legal, and he was against walls.

A great freedom has been attained in the USA, especially in the Western USA, a freedom seldom known in world history, and the USA must retain this great freedom. This great freedom is what makes America great, and it is also why Americans are so creative, and it is why we have cool stuff like Rock and Roll, and it is why Hollywood films are so great, etc. Of note too, is that because of the great freedom in the USA, others have been helped to attain better human rights and more freedom, and the world is constantly getting better on the issue of human rights, and we must always strive for better human rights globally.

It is all about being the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

Salute,

Tony V.

The non-profit group that people have been raising money for, in order to help the children and families on the southern border is called "RAICES..."

https://www.caller.com/story/news/texasregion/2018/06/20/raices-fundraiser-texas-nonprofit-aiding-immigrant-children-families-heres-what-you-should-know/718116002/

But, we need to expand things, to support the children and families in all of the border states, along with helping the children and families on the border in Texas.

Salute,

Tony V.
