Letters from the Lunar Outpost

He who is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.
- Proverbs, Jewish, Old Testament (B.C. 1000?-200?)

A funny thing happened to me this morning. I woke up and knowing full-well that my Raiders were playing the early game today, it struck me that I had no absolutely no desire to tune into the game or have anything else to do with the NFL. This after four decades of die-hard fandom, following my Raiders almost every single game for what would have been exactly forty years this year. I had no desire to watch any of it – none, zip, zilch, nada.

It was bad enough for sports in general to see ESPN become the equivalent of MSNBC’s sports division, but at least with the propaganda ESPN spews, you couldn’t blame the leagues themselves.  Now we have to witness the same National Football League which cracks down on players for excessive celebrations turning a blind eye to players disrespecting the flag and the national anthem. To hell with those players and to hell with the league which allows it.

Athletes making millions of dollars a year crying about oppression should cry about it to their black president. If they really cared about their people, they would focus on the actual problems inside the community, such as the rate of nearly 6,000 black on black murders last year instead of putting all their energies into playing the victim card over a handful of police shootings.

After 40 years, I am done with the NFL. I have absolutely no desire to watch it any more and it looks like I’m not alone on this, either.

Islamic Terror Targets Gay Bar in Florida

You would think the very first priority of president would be the safety and security of the citizens who elected him, but when it comes to allowing immigration from countries where so many people hate us, our current president seems willing to roll the dice, despite the fact that we know so many of the terror attacks in Europe have been perpetrated by immigrants from those very same countries.

Barack Obama has been called "the first gay president".

When you look at the world around us, Muslim countries are the only countries on the face of the Earth where being gay is considered a crime punishable by death. Now that this latest incident of Islamic terror has been targeted at a gay bar in Florida, maybe now – finally – the man who has been called “our first gay president” will rethink his policy of opening the flood gates to these cesspools of radicalism.

I don’t want to see a President Trump almost as much as I don’t want to see a return to the White House of the Clinton kleptocracy, but every time we see more reports of anti-Trump rioters assaulting women, waving Mexican flags and burning the American flag, we also see Trump’s poll numbers going up as well.

Beyond the irony that these protesters seem intent on proving there’s some truth in Trump’s statements about illegal immigrants, it makes me wonder . . .

Why Are the Anti-Trump Protesters Out There Helping Donald Trump's Cause?

Mi Chocolate

O choco choco chocolate
I want to feel you melt inside my mouth
I want to taste that deep dark brown delight
and then I’ll have myself another bite
Of chocolate
Mi chocolate

Take me down, down to the Mayan lands,
Take me down to Guatemala

Take me up to climb the pyramid
Let my heart bleed out in your hands

O choco choco chocolate
Mi choco choco chocolate
I want to feel you melt inside my mouth
I want to taste that deep dark brown delight
and then I’ll have myself another bite
Of chocolate
Mi chocolate

Sangre tan pura y limpia
Nativa americana

Soy aquí, soy tu conquistador
Sembrando en suelo fértil

O choco choco chocolate
Mi choco choco chocolate
I want to feel you melt inside my mouth
I want to taste that deep dark brown delight
and then I’ll have myself another bite
Of chocolate

First-generation immigrants are some of the most patriotic Americans you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting. For most, they dreamed of America long before they came here, many of them spending years pooling all their resources together and even risking their own lives just to get here. And I don’t hold anything against the people who came here illegally, they did it to make for a better life for themselves and their families. How can anyone fault illegal immigrants for not taking seriously the immigration laws that our own government abjectly fails to enforce?

The immigrants who came here because they believed in the American dream have always been this country’s greatest natural resource, and while they often continue to take pride in the cultures and traditions of the countries they left, most of these immigrants also embrace wholeheartedly the American culture which afforded them so much opportunity.

Then there are the kinds of pendejos like the immigrants who gave their child this sign to hold:
Make America Mexico Again
For those ignorant kooks who come here with no desire to call themselves Americans and assimilate into American culture, I have just a couple questions:

Do you not realize that if Mexico had never given up the lands of the Southwestern U.S., the end result would be that the people of Mexico would have to immigrate farther north to escape their country’s third-world poverty?

Why on Earth would we want to “Make America Mexico Again” and turn this great nation back into a country that people risk death crossing deserts to trying to escape?

Oh what’s that you say? You say that now that these lands have become rich and prosperous in American hands, now you want to take it back for Mexico? Sorry, but you’re delusional.
