Remembering Bob Clark, Director of "A Christmas Story"

Yet another Christmas has been made more joyful by being able to watch Bob Clark's delightful film, "A Christmas Story."

In many American homes, Clark's 1983 award-winning film has joined "A Christmas Carol," "It's a Wonderful Life," and "Miracle on 34th Street" as mandatory Yuletide fare.

Christmas simply would not be the "most wonderful time of the year" without watching all four of these great movies at least once each December.

Unfortunately for all who love Christmas, Bob Clark has not been around to celebrate Christmas in recent years. That is so because the prolific filmmaker, whose career spanned four decades, was killed in an automobile crash caused by a drunken driver in California in 2007.

Hector Velazquez-Nava, an illegal alien from Mexico, had a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit when he claimed the lives of both Clark and his 22-year-old son, Ariel Hanrath-Clark.

On October 16, 2007, Hector Velazquez-Nava was sentenced to six years in prison after pleading no contest to two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

According to some estimates, about 13 Americans are slaughtered every day, on average, by drunken illegal aliens like Hector Velazquez-Nava.

Despite the carnage caused by illegal aliens, the mainstream media refuses to acknowledge and report the extent of the problem. Political correctness seems more vital than objective reporting, at least in some leftist news rooms.

In addition to media malfeasance in reporting the facts, America's political leaders, including our president, constantly argue that those coming here illegally from Mexico should be welcomed en masse because they hold values common to the American people.

One wonders if our so-called leaders are even aware of the horrors involving illegal aliens, too much alcohol, and the slaughter of innocent Americans?

Or do they simply not care?

The simple truth is that illegal aliens are not all good hearted, hard working folks who just come here to work. Many are violent criminals who should be rounded up and booted out of America before they commit more crime.

Moreover, illegal aliens do not share American values.

By definition, all illegal aliens are criminals, but most Americans are not.

Another example: Driving while drunk is considered "cool" and "macho" in Mexican culture, but is seen as stupid and recklessly criminal in America.

The solution? Our borders should be militarized to keep invaders out, and those already here should be rounded up and forcibly removed as soon as possible.
