On the Invasion of the U.S. southern border....


On the Invasion of the U.S. southern border

TX better have a very large fleet of buses lined up to transport the thousands of people that are purported to be en-route over the next few months, otherwise this is just another stunt. It's probably just a stunt anyway.

Overall, I think busing the invaders to DC is a good idea on TX part.

However, ask yourself these questions. What happens when they get to DC? Who, what organization is giving them food and shelter when they arrive? Where do they get the money to go elsewhere, as the MSM and the White House reports that DC is an "interim stop" to other places in the U.S.?

More questions: Does anyone really believe that people, including YOUNG CHILDREN, are WALKING thousands of miles from Central and South America to get to the U.S. border? The pictures of people supposedly walking to the border, rarely show them with backpacks, tents and sleeping bags. Are they sleeping rough under the stars during their valiant attempt to reach the USA, as the MSM would have you believe?

How does an army march(walk)? On its belly. (Napoleon)

How are they getting food? If people really are walking that far, how is it that most of the mature women are still overweight when they get to the U.S. border? Trust me. If they were walking a thousand miles in a couple of months they'd be thin. Look at pictures of the late 1800's pioneers. There wasn't an ounce of fat on any of them.

The distance from just Mexico's southern border to the U.S. border is ~1125 miles, through rough country. Wagon trains during the 1800's U.S. westward expansion averaged 2mph and they traveled, on average, for 10 hours per day or 20 miles. They didn't advance every day either. They took at least one rest day per week just for the animals, never mind the people and that depended on the weather and terrain along the way.

Equating that to people walking from the Guatemala border to the USA, it takes 56.25 days to walk that distance walking EVERY DAY. The wagon trains of the 1800's didn't advance every day.

Food to power walking requires one to consume 1500 calories/day just to power walking, never mind the amount of calories needed to maintain the rest of the body, another 1000 minimum calories per day to power BMR (Basic Metabolic Rate). So where are these people getting a minimum of 2500 calories per day to power their walking? They're certainly not hunting or foraging for those calories. Foraging and/or hunting would slow their speed of advance and would strip the countryside of plant and animal calories. With the MILLIONS that have covered that ground already there wouldn't be much left by this time. I'm sure the local Mexicans would vehemently protest the reduction of those available calories because it would deny them the means of feeding themselves.

What does 2500 calories look like? Power Bars average a little over 250 calories each and weigh 2.4 ounces each. That's a 3.5”X2.5”X.50” slab of plant protein, starch and sugar with few vitamins. That's 10 power bars at a pound and half per day for each person walking. That's 56 pounds of compact calories per person to be carried how, given the lack of backpacks.

What about water? A 150 pound human body requires a half gallon of water per day just to function while sitting around doing mostly nothing. Walking 20 miles, ups that required intake to between 3/4 and 2 gallons per day depending on a bunch of factors including heat from the walking environment. Are all these millions of people drinking from creeks, brooks, streams and rivers that are notoriously contaminated in Mexico, never mind being few and far between? If they were, they'd be dying from dysentery and cholera by the millions (Invasion problem solved). But, they're not. They're getting clean water from somewhere IF they're walking. Who is supplying it?

It's not the coyotes/cartels. They don't care if you live or die as long as they get paid.

56 pounds of compact food and let's say 2 gallons of water at 8.2 pounds per gallon (to account for not finding water every day) weighs a total of ~72 pounds (assuming a full load on day one of walking because there's no resupply except for water from somewhere), not including backpack, tent, sleeping bag, a knife and fire making tools; not including cook pots, change of clothes and various other sundries PER PERSON.

That's a load that elite troops carry since the time of the Romans. Every day third worlders? Not a chance.

If you're carrying dry beans and brown rice, more traditional foods from central/south America, the pounds of just food almost doubles for the journey because the calories compared to density ratio drops substantially. Then you have to find MORE water to cook it with.

Could you or your child carry that over 1125 miles or even 20 miles on the first day?

There's a reason pioneers used BIG wagons on their westward migration in the 1800's.

There's also a reason why these people aren't walking 1125 miles from Guatemala or anywhere south of there to the U.S. southern border.

Why isn't this being researched and/or publicized by anyone in the media or some independent “journalist” you ask? Because it doesn't fit the narrative of the “sainted migrant” searching for a better life. The MSM would cry RACIST, NAZI and every epithet that they customarily use to smear people that aren't being cowed to conform to the “narrative”. The “journalist” reporting the research would at minimum be canceled and probably be shot and killed by some .gov employed goon. (Sounds like a job for the EFF BEE EYE.)

Then there's Pelosi and Biden, the self proclaimed “good Catholics” having their very first private audiences with the Pope last year, after both serving a combined near century in DC. Coincidence? Did I tell you about this bridge I have for sale? (I don't have an axe to grind with Catholic people. I was baptized in the Catholic Church. The current and near past Church hierarchy is another matter).

These questions don't even delve into the moral, Constitutional and political questions involved, although all of them are morally, Constitutionally and politically related. 


Nice Work Gov. Abbott of Texas, Nice Work....


  First Bus of migrants dropped off in DC.


 "By busing migrants to Washington, D.C., the Biden Administration will be able to more immediately meet the needs of the people they are allowing to cross our border,” Abbott said in a Wednesday morning statement. “Texas should not have to bear the burden of the Biden Administration’s failure to secure our border."

 Cliff Note Issue...


John Deere 4210.  Hydrostatic Transmission. MFWD.

The Hydraulic steering actuator is leaking from the top seal.

I can get a new one from Deere.

Last night I spent an hour or two trying to find an alternative , such as

a rebuilt with core on my old one.

Just seeing if anyone else has had similar issue and resolved it.

This has been shared on a few sites and I finally got to watch the whole thing.

You should as well.

After finishing this post I headed to the blogroll on the sidebar. Perusing the list and surfing from 

page to page I found this posted at Anonymous Conservatives site. 

Didn't JP, in the video above, mention the real estate issue and b-rock?
