Influx of Haitian migrants pushing locals out of housing in Colombia beach town

NECOCLI, Colombia (Reuters) – An influx of thousands of mostly Haitian migrants seeking transport northward toward the United States is pushing locals in the Colombian beach town of Necocli out of housing, residents said, as landlords favor migrants able to pay in dollars. The backlog of migrants waiting in the town for scarce places on boat transport toward the jungles of the Darien Gap in Panama, where smugglers guide groups northward on foot, has swelled to up to 19,000 after the lifting of COVID-19 border closures…. Even commercial properties are being re-purposed….

Something is rotten in Denmark?

I smell a Soros involvement.

Who’s paying for this?

Argh!

RANTING: NFL is self-destructing

Fans Disappearing As NFL Stupidly Continues Down Self-Destructive Road

Who wants to watch spoiled, over-paid jocks who’ve turned pregame ceremonies meant to honor America into anti-American protests?

Who wants to read social justice messages on playing fields and players’ helmets touting criminals and trashing public safety officers?

Who delights in watching lightly punished criminals compete in sports? Or idiots like Odell Beckham Jr. simulating urinating on the president?

Over the last several months, NFL players have been arrested for DUI, domestic violence, battery, disorderly conduct, hit-and-run, drugs, armed robbery, vandalism, drug violations (see photo of Denver’s Melvin Gordon, arrested in October for drunk driving). When these players add Black Lives Matter activism to their sorry acts, it only alienates more fans. On top of all this, we’re just a couple months away from yet another women-degrading bozo disgracing the Super Bowl halftime stage.

So, NFL, continue on down this self-destructive path you’re on while your sorry house continues to burn down.

Argh!

I’m sure that people don’t like their circuses interrupted with self-righteous pontifications by spoiled brats.

Argh!

When will “We, The Sheeple” ever learn!

Australian Mom Killed By Flood After ‘Dozens’ Whip Out Smartphones Instead of Helping

But, as if this damage weren’t devastating enough, the only fatality reported thus far could potentially have been prevented if onlookers had put down their smartphones to lend a helping hand. A mother from the town of Roma and her 7-year-old son were trapped on Friday as the strong current began pulling them apart. Australia’s Courier-Mail reports that some men rushed in to help Jane Sheahan as she passed her son, Darcy, to them. But it was too late for Sheahan to be pulled from the water herself.

Wasn’t there. Don’t know the whole story. Can’t condemn folks for not risking their life.

Only hope that if I get such and opportunity, I won’t look the other way.

Sigh!

Save a life!

Isn’t that on everyone’s bucket list?

It is on mine. Right above “deliver a baby”.

(Strangely women are very uncooperative. They seem to insist on a real doctor. I’ll have to find with no other choice. Like that lady on the NYC bound commuter train; she wasn’t that “ripe”. And, a near miss when I was on the first aid squad. No luck!)

Back to the topic, it’s like that poem —

Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.                This story shall the good man teach his son;                And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,                From this day to the ending of the world,                But we in it shall be remembered-                We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;                For he to-day that sheds his blood with me                Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,                This day shall gentle his condition;                And gentlemen in England now-a-bed                Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,                And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks                That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

— will these “men”, these onlookers with smart phones, think themselves “accurs’d”. “Holding their manhood cheap”.

Shame.

Where are the heroes?

Yes, there were some that day. Saved a child. But, perhaps extra hands or an earlier response would have saved Mum too.

Ashamed to be a man by such a poor performance by other of my sex.

Argh!
