Greetings, y'all! Yesterday was election day, here in “Knox County Vegas.” I voted, but the lady told me that I could come back to vote again.
I wrote this reference to my 5/14/2006 article, before I went to vote again. Y'all figure out if I'm joking or serious!
“Illegal Analogy” (published 5/14/2006; article #12)
I published my article “Illegal Analogy,” on 5/14/2006. It was my twelfth article. I updated the article, on 6/26/2022, by adding the introductory paragraph only. As of this article today, I have published 345 articles.
I see viewer counts in my website statistics. I don't know who views which articles when. I only see articles viewed by date and number of viewers on that date. On 6/26/2022 and 8/2/2022, I had viewer spikes on “Illegal Analogy” – my article of sixteen years ago. I don't know why my article had viewer spikes on those days. I'd almost forgotten about that article.
“Illegal Analogy” (podcast 8/5/2022)
The viewer spikes motivated me to create a podcast, in which I read, with some adaptation, the words that I wrote sixteen years ago. I added an introductory note on my podcast. I changed only a few words, in my original article, for a more natural speaking voice. I did not change anything else.
I hope that you enjoy listening to me, while I read my 5/14/2006 article, “Illegal Analogy!” The YouTube link is at: ILLEGAL ANALOGY (published 8-5-2022; episode #4).
Well, I'd better get off here for now. That lady at the voting place, of yesterday, may be looking for me and wondering why I didn't go back to vote again yesterday. Also, I need to sweep the water that puddled on the front porch – after another, almost daily, pop up storm.
By the way, Mrs. Appalachian Irishman is home now. Yesterday, she had to start “hitting a lick” at work. Today was her second day back to work, after her summer break. Bless her heart. She may have to work another three years, before she can join the retirement club.
“Illegal Analogy” was my statement on the flood of illegal aliens crossing the southern border – in 2006. The flood is worse now – 16 years later. The analogy is timeless – unfortunately. When will this once great nation remember that secure borders define a nation?
