    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...

Anarchy in the U.S.A. - 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.

-- Amateur Radio
-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas
-- CAE, CAD, & Software
-- Circuits & Components

Well, based on the marches taking place in the U.S.A. today, it appears there should no longer be any restrictions on immigration. After all, say the demonstrators, those who come into the country illegally are in fact not breaking the law at all.

It's simple: Just declare as invalid any law that is not convenient for you, and all will be forgiven. We will all simply acquire amnesia (root of the word amnesty), or loss of memory regarding your lawlessness. March without proper permits and disrupt business, and we will forget about that, too.

Those of you who either have obtained citizenship legally or are in the process of obtaining citizenship legally need to learn a lesson from this: You are suckers! You have worked as hard or (most likely) harder and have contributed much more to the economy than the Illegals, and they just step to the front of the line. Move aside and let them go by you, please.

In fact the smartest option for you to expedite your citizenship, it now appears, is to buy a ticket to Mexico (take a few thousand pesos with you to pay a guide to get you across the southwest desert) and then return to your current position. You could turn a 5-7 year processing delay into just a couple months. Oh, and be sure to fly the American flag upside down when you get back. As a bonus, you will not have to bother learning the English language, the Pledge of Allegiance, any history of America, or any knowledge of the workings of our government (just hold a large enough protest to get what you want).

If you are now in the process of obtaining citizenship or have already obtained citizenship, what is your opinion of the current situation with the possibility that lawbreaking people (Illegals) might be given amnesty and granted citizenship without going through the established protocol?

Ola. This is utter BS. It f#$%ing p$%^es me off that these b%^@ds are allowed to get away with this. I was born in the U.S. (my parents immigrated LEGALLY) but my wife (from Mexico) spent 5 years getting her citizenship.

Where is INS? Why do our girly-man and manly-girl politicians allow this to go on? Round those people up and herd them to the border.

One good thing is it shows that country gets along just fine without them. Hell, the stock markets have been going up without them and their illegal attitudes. Bush really p$%^es me off too since for some reason the stupid b$%^rd seems to be kissing Fox's arse.

I would REALLY love to see the largest demonstration in American history take place in the next couple weeks. That would really show who makes the country work. We need some big-time national organizer to move fast on this. I guarantee you that 10s of millions of people would participate in an anti-Illegal Immigrant demonstration. We need these for an entire week all across the U.S.

Anyone know who might be able to start the organization for such an event?
