I think that we can stop the wall from being built, and we can cause the proponents of the wall to experience some serious cognitive dissonance, because we all know that the USA should not have walls, deep down everyone knows that the USA should not have walls. We are a free Christian nation, with free Christian neighbors, and we do not need any walls.

America is for everyone...everyone who applies to the US govt for immigration approval, is accepted by the govt as being an asset to the nation and needed...then arrives in America legally.

Everyone in the world can't move to America just because they feel like it...there has to be an orderly immigration system.
If there's not, the standards/systems in place now in America will be rendered useless...and the country become a third-world basket-case like may of the places the system-rorting immigrants would be pouring in from.

For this reason America's borders must be secured/sealed, somehow.....walls, fences, troops, solar lights, razor wire, moats...whatever it takes.

Look at it this way, Bambu, if the USA had Australia as a neighbor instead of Mexico, then would you still think that the USA needs a wall? And why does the USA need a wall with Mexico, but not with Canada?

The USA has good Christian neighbors here in the Western Hemisphere, and the USA needs to have a "Good Neighbor" policy with our good Christian neighbors.

George W. Bush is a Texan, and has always lived by the border with Mexico, and George W. Bush never wanted to build a wall, W. loves the Mexicans, and Jeb Bush married a Mexican lady. Also of note is that Condoleeza Rice has spoken out many times against building a wall, she said that the USA is a good free nation, with good, free, Christian neighbors, and we do not need any walls.

We do not need any walls.

God is real, and miracles happen for those who believe...

I was left with chronic back and neck pain as a result of an automobile accident. I was in horrible pain for two years. The pain pills did not even help, and I did not want to get addicted to pain pills. Four doctors said that there was nothing that they could do, and they just told me not to lift over ten pounds. Then, one night while I was on my knees praying, I felt fire run down my spine and the pain went away. God took away my pain. God gave me a miracle. And to this day I am pain-free.
 
And of note, my father died when I was a child, when I was 9 years old, just before my tenth birthday. My grandfather also died young, and his sons grew up without a dad, and my uncles used drugs, and they spent their whole lives in prison, those were my role models. I was high risk to end up as a drug addict, and I was high risk to end up in prison. But, I am a Christian, and my Christian faith saved me. I worked honest jobs, and I stayed away from drugs, and I looked for good Christian role models. And I never became addicted to drugs, and I never went to prison. Later, my brother married Roy Rogers and Dale Evans' granddaughter, and I looked to Roy as a role model, and I went to college, and to acting school, to be an actor, although I never made it very far. Anyhow, I was high risk for drugs and crime, and because of my Christian faith I stayed away from drugs and crime. And when I did not have a Dad to talk to, I prayed to God.
 
The enemy is strong, and I was homeless out on the streets for two years after college, and after acting school, but I kept my faith in God, and I continued to pray, and God has been with me. I am not bitter and hateful. I still have love in my heart.
 
Later I suffered from a nervous breakdown, and from extreme exhaustion, and I had to spend a month in the hospital, and I came out of the hospital homeless. And I was diagnosed with PTSD. But, God took care of me, and God led me to good Christian people who helped me.
 
Years later I was told that my blood tests were saying that I had Cancer. My doctor even had a talk with me about dying, and he told me to get my affairs in order. Then, after 18 month of testing, they could never find Cancer, and then my blood tests started saying that I am healthy. I pray often, and God hears my prayers.
 
Maybe my life has not been so great, so far, but God has walked with me, and God will continue to walk with me.
 
I do not know what I would have done without having God in my life.

Here is a thread that I started on Topix pertaining to God, and pertaining to miracles which God has given me, and there is also a link for a video that I made...

We need to unite here in the Western Hemisphere, and we all need to work together as a team, from the top of Alaska to the bottom of Chile, for the betterment of all of us. We do not need any walls. We have over one billion Christians here in the Western Hemisphere, and we need to work together as a team.

The USA is for everyone...

My family tree has been in the USA for hundreds of years, and we did not build a wall and keep all of you out of America. You cannot come into the USA and block other people, they have the same right to be an American that you do. We are all created equal with unalienable rights. And here are the words on our Statue of Liberty...

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

We are all equal, and America is for everyone.

The USA is different than the rest of the world, the USA is for everyone.

This land is your land, this land is my land, this land was made for you and me.

Salute,

Tony V.

You can send your business ideas to the California Tribal Business Alliance, and maybe they can help you to achieve your business ideas, they might make a great business partner.

Several years ago I tried to buy a piece of property here in my neighborhood to open a movie studio. The property is about the size of Occidental Studios in East Hollywood. There is room for a couple of soundstages and some production offices. I even had one office already going to a friend's record label. They wanted five million dollars for the property, and I sent the proposal to the San Manuel Indian Tribal Business Council, but they turned me down. They told me to keep sending them my ideas, and they said that maybe I will come up with an idea that they are interested in.

Here is the property, a towing company bought it.

The only bad thing is that it is close to the railroad tracks. But, the trains do not run very often.

I asked the guys in the neighborhood if they wanted a movie studio in our neighborhood, and they said that is the kind of business they want here, they were very supportive of the idea.

It could be like Occidental, and Disney uses Occidental all of the time. The last time I was at Occidental, Disney was there working. I am sure that people would use a little movie studio here in Anaheim. There could be a recording studio there too, for music, if people want one.

It was a good idea, and at least I tried.

Ivanka Trump to visit Japan, attend women's assembly
WEDNESDAY , OCTOBER 25, 2017 - 8:35 AM

http://www.standard.net/WORLD/2017/10/25/IVANKA-TRUMP-TO-VISIT-JAPAN-ATTEND-WOMEN-S-ASSEMBLY

---------

Ivanka Trump said on Facebook that she just landed in Japan, and she said that she is excited about the women's assembly.

If you want to stop the terrorists, then you need to stand up for women's rights. Educating women, and giving women equal rights, will improve our whole world. The terrorists oppress women. If you want to see real change happen in Afghanistan, and in Iraq, then give the women good human rights. Educate the women, and make business loans available for the women, and you will see a better world happen.

Organizations such as FINCA Village Banking can help to give business loans to the women of Afghanistan, and in Iraq, etc.

Men are made bigger and stronger so that we can protect the women and children. Shame on any man who would hurt a woman or a child, and he is not a real man. Men need to support good human rights for women, we need to support and encourage the women. I am all in favor of improving human rights for women, and equality for women, and I support equal pay for equal work.

I think that it is great that Ivanka is out there working hard to help the women of the world.

Salute,

Tony V.

Ivanka doing great life's work for the nation.

Any guess what her remittance is for the work?

From what I understand, she is doing it all pro bono.

Salute,

Well, the Dodgers made it all of the way to game seven of the World Series, and they managed to keep it sort of close. Darvish needs to be traded to another team.

The Dodgers did great, and there is always next year. They can be proud of what they accomplished.

Meanwhile, I feel good for the Astros who won their first World Series in Astro history. And Texas winning might be a bright spot for the hurricane victims.
