This is a blog entry from October 20, 2007.

For once, I'm going to give the Associated Press a pass for suppressing the ethnic groups involved -they - re all Americans, after all  - but this is such a perfect metaphor for what Mass Immigration is doing to America:

Burglars move into Alabama woman-s home
Yahoo! News Oct 18

DECATUR, Ala. Kim Ledford returned to her home after an extended absence and found a strange man in her bed and a woman wearing her clothes. Then another man walked up to question why she was in his house.

Once police sorted things out, two were charged with burglary, Kelly Jo Moore, 45, and Cornelius Goode, 29. The man in the bed was not immediately identified or charged.

Decatur police spokesman Lt. Frank DeButy said Moore was wearing Ledford's clothes and said she would leave the home if it was causing a problem.

DeButy says Goode falsely claimed to be the owner of the residence. It's unclear how long the intruders had been living in the house.

DeButy said police also found drug paraphernalia on Moore.

Moore and Goode are currently living in the Morgan County Jail.

Of course, there are a number of groups who are moving in to America, illegally, taking over, and waving signs that say "If you think I'm illegal because I'm a Mexican learn the true history because I'm in my homeland."

It reminds me of this famous Ogden Nash poem, which could either be seen as referring to mass immigration, in which case it's considered racist nowadays, or as referring to Japan's imperialistic activities in China, in which case, I suppose, objecting to it is anti-Chinese:

The Japanese by Ogden Nash (1938)

How courteous is the Japanese;

He always says, "

Excuse it, please."

He climbs into his neighbor's garden,

And smiles, and says,

"I beg your pardon;"

He bows and grins a friendly grin,

And calls his hungry family in;

He grins, and bows a friendly bow;

"So sorry, this my garden now."
