    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Illegal immigration killing us (literally) - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam. Note: The RF Cafe Forums were reconstituted in April 2021!

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Here's another report out - this time by a report in the spring issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons - about the crippling burden illegals from Mexico are putting on our healthcare system. According to the report, 84 California hospitals have been forced to close their doors and not be able to service legal citizens' needs.

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/artic ... E_ID=43275

Here's the opening salvo:

Cristobal Silverio emigrated illegally from Mexico to Stockton, Calif., in 1997 to work as a fruit picker.

He brought with him his wife, Felipa, and three children, 19, 12 and 8 – all illegals. When Felipa gave birth to her fourth child, daughter Flor, the family had what is referred to as an "anchor baby" – an American citizen by birth who provided the entire Silverio clan a ticket to remain in the U.S. permanently.

But Flor was born premature, spent three months in the neonatal incubator and cost the San Joaquin Hospital more than $300,000. Meanwhile, oldest daughter Lourdes married an illegal alien gave birth to a daughter, too. Her name is Esmeralda. And Felipa had yet another child, Cristian.

The two Silverio anchor babies generate $1,000 per month in public welfare funding for the family. Flor gets $600 a month for asthma. Healthy Cristian gets $400. While the Silverios earned $18,000 last year picking fruit, they picked up another $12,000 for their two "anchor babies."

...and another:

When Linda Torres was arrested in Bakersfield, Calif., with about $8,500 in small bills in a sack, the police originally thought it was stolen money, explained the report. It was her Social Security lump sum for her disability -- heroin addiction.

The Mexican government is printing how-to manuals for helping it's disease-ridden and criminal (all illegals are law-breakers by definition) population come here to break the back of our system - all while Mexico is flush with oil that we're paying $55+/barrel for.

Both Republicans and Democrats are selling our security and national well-being for a handful of votes. This has produced a number of quasi-vigilante groups that are now patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border to do the job that the Border Patrol cannot do by itself. Citizen-partiots are risking their lives fortunes, and sacred honor to protect this country. Only a brave few congressmen are willing to take a stand, like J.D. Hayworth, of Arizona, and Tom Tancredo, of Colorado.


Ha, dig this:

Here's yet another piece on th ecological damage being done by the illegals.

http://www.frostywooldridge.com/article ... jun25.html

"On average, each illegal alien drops eight pounds of trash while making his way into America. At an estimated one million per year, that means eight million pounds of trash blow around the desert.

On this side of the Boboquivarie Mountains, the Altar Valley has the same problems. Joseph Mathew videotaped many areas, which are a blight, an eyesore and environmental hazards in Southern Arizona. One site had over 100 half full plastic water jugs, discarded clothing, jackets, old socks, bloody bandages, food containers, empty and full as well as human feces, soiled toilet paper and rags. We observed five additional lay-up areas within 2 kilometers of the Diamond Bell. One site had over 50 backpacks and fresh "sign" that indicated the group of 50 or more had been loaded up within the previous 24 hours. On Garvey, a dirt road that runs south from the Diamond Bell Ranch Road is also the location where a man's body was found on the 8th of March, a homicide victim. There are at least seven different staging sites on Garvey. The washes are cluttered with the debris left by illegal aliens and narcotics transporters. Many of the packs contained evidence of the owners nationality which were discarded--Mexican credulas, telephone calling cards and documents from El Salvador, Guatemala and Colombia."

Why aren't we storming the halls of Congress over this?

Why aren't we storming the halls of congress? Hmmmmm.... Who does all of the crap jobs that you don't want to do? Who cuts your grass, builds your house, cleans your house, etc......

If you want to blame somebody, blame the corporations who want to save money on labor costs. Will you do landscaping for 7 bucks an hour? Hell no. If you are not going to do it, then who will?

The US government turns their back on this issue because illegal immigration lets the rich get richer.

It all goes back to greed.
