Dave, I’ll take a shot at your question. Just like you always say, we can’t be the police for the whole world. On the same lines we can’t be the world’s health and human services department as well.
Do you honestly think that people in need are only in Mexico a couple hundred miles from the US border? There are many people throughout the world that don’t have good jobs and find it tough to put food on the table. What separates those people from the Mexicans a couple hundred miles from the border? Do you want to tell the family in Africa that since they are a couple thousand miles from our border they don’t count?
It’s a cruel world as they say and the US caps immigration at a certain number each year. Is it fair for the people that wait their turn and go through the proper channels to immigrate here and then say oh well to the immigrants that sneak across the border illegally? There is a system in place and all immigrants should follow it whether they are 100 miles from our border or 2,000 miles from our borders.
In a perfect world we could let anyone that has a tough life into the US but that would be an astronomical number of people and our country and economy could not support that no matter how much we tried. What Jesus or good Christians would do is not feasible in today’s world, we can’t save all the people in the world no matter how hard we try.
You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all.
Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.
I went through dozens before i found a home,
If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.
Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.
You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report
Hello from the NW Angle!
We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.
On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.
Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.
Until next week,
Sunset Lodge Ice Team
We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard. Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too. Got a deer mouse this morning also.
