Trump’s new proposed U.S.-Mexico Border

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Realizing that he won’t be able to force Mexico to pay for the great wall that he wants to build along the U.S. southern border, Republican  presidential candidate and frontrunner Donald Trump has revised his anti-immigration policy proposal.

Trump now wants to sell California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas back to Mexico and use the money to pay for a new U.S. border wall north and east of these states.

Up until 1848,  California and its neighboring southwest states were internationally recognized provinces of free Mexico, until the U.S. decided it wanted those provinces, declared war on Mexico and stole them.

“I am a businessman and I make decisions based on what’s good for business,” Trump said. “Americans  and Mexicans both will thank me for it. It will finally put to rest America’s dragged-out immigration problem without costing us a cent.”

This new policy could very well be Trump’s ticket to The White House.

Diverting his campaign strategy away from personal attacks and more on issues important to the Filipino people, Binay today unveiled his bold proposal to address the problem of overpopulation and poverty in this nation of 100 Million people.

Speaking to reporters at an impromptu press conference at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City, Binay said that if elected president, he will propose and implement a one-child policy for the Philippines, similar to that put in place by China in 1978.

China’s policy is aimed at alleviating social, economic and environmental problems in this country of over a billion people.

Binay, a devout Catholic, is confident that the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) will support his plan, as long as it doesn’t involve any means of artificial birth control.

In  justifying his proposal, Binay cited the fact the U.S. State of California is bigger in land size than the entire Philippines, and yet the Filipino population is  almost three times that of California (see illustration).

The vice president is proposing a fine of one hundred thousand pesos or a prison term of one year for both parents who would violate the one-child policy. Unmarried parents would pay double the fine  or would suffer a two-year prison term.

“It’s about time we solved the problem of overpopulation in our country once and for all,” Binay said.

The ranchers said  that the animal is healthy and normal in every way—except for its blue-colored fat, which runs throughout its entire body.

Scientists at Stanford University who examined the pig weren’t sure whether the blue color was a result of some bacterial or environmental contamination, or the result of a genetic defect. So they asked a Filipino American family in Palo Alto to cook the pig the Filipino way — lechon (roasted pig).

Lo and behold, while the lechon looked as normal as a pig roasted in an open-fire pit, blue hues seemed to permeate through the pig’s skin, making for a first in the history of lechon-making: a blue lechon!image

Other than the patches of blue, those who did partake of the lechon dinner attest to the fact that it tasted much like the regular Pinoy delicacy: crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside.

The scientists then determined that the pig’s blue fat was genetic and the pig was fit for human consumption.
