Today the United States of America is on a dangerous path in its future.  On our current course we now have a nation where the average ethics, approach to excellence, average intelligence of our citizens is falling to new lows within U.S. society.  By the very nature of our immigration programs, have we brought the strength of our country to a new low. 

A country that allows its borders open to any illegal immigrant looking to drop their child on U.S. soil speaks volumes of the changes that need to be made to our immigration laws.  Defining what makes a true U.S. citizen should go beyond dropping a baby on our soil. 

Each child that is born on our shores by an illegal in this country represents hundreds of thousands of dollars in “Freebies” in community services, education and food stamps over the lifetime of now, what is now a “Legal, U.S. Citizen Child.”  This is a burden that the middle class U.S. Citizen of our country can no longer afford. 

We, as a country need to redefine what constitutes a legal U.S. Citizen.  A child born of a mother who is not a U.S. citizen should not automatically become a U.S. Citizen.  In fact the requirement should be for a child to have the status of a U.S. citizen should be that both parents be U.S. citizens at the time of the birth of that child.

By Line:  John Rigo is a first generation Italian.  Mr. Rigo’s Father came to the U. S. at age 16 thru Ellis Island from Northern Italy in 1926.  Mr. Rigo fondly remembers that his Father had two main goals in life.  One, was to become an American citizen, and Two, to speak excellent English to where no one would know he was a foreigner, he achieved both goals.

“A Sunrise each morning at Cedar Creek Lake in East Texas, reminds me of all the blessings the Lord has rendered me.” copyright 2014 John J. Rigo

The future of Cedar Creek Lake and the course of leadership in its surrounding communities will be greatly important to all of us that call this lake our home.  With droughts occurring more often in the area, we as a community need to question the course of our current leadership in its goal of being a resort community

The damages to our economy by sharing of our lake with the Tarrant County Water District need to be put into question after 45 years that the water that touches our shores is sold and shipped to Tarrant county and other buyers of the water in Texas.  It is a proven fact that so-called controlled watering of local properties  by the Tarrant County Water District surrounding the lake effect lake levels less than a percentage of one percent. 

The rate of the selling of said water by Tarrant county far outstrips any rains the area receives. The end result is waterfront properties that become worthless and business that depend on tourism, are failing at a rapid rate in the area. Issues of eminent domain on the parts of all the countries that touch this lake locally, need to be addressed in a legal perspective in thinking “outside the box” in the control of Cedar Creek Lake, as well as the sharing of its financial resources.  A “Fair balance” needs to be established between property owners around the lake, as well as the Tarrant County Water District.

A group of concerned property owners as well as business owners surrounding the three hundred miles of shoreline on Cedar Creek Lake in East Texas needs to be formed to shape the future of our community.  It will take creative planning and intelligent goal setting to release the area from the bondage of the Tarrant County Water District with keen insights to all aspects of the rights of property and business owners who own property on the waterfront of this lake.

If you fall into this category of concern for your home and business and wish to be part of this citizen group contact John J. Rigo at texascommentator@hotmail.com.  The future of Cedar Creek Lake in East Texas starts today.  A passing note:  I have no desire to head-up such a group.  I would consider being in an advisor capacity only.  Some folks do well in politics and as a community activist. 

That is not the case for me since I am in your-face-kind-of-man who does not tolerate “self-servers” very well.  Included in that category are city managers with private bathrooms in their city office and pay checks exceeding over $140,000 a year and whose word is “worthless” in keeping their promises to property owners on Cedar Creek lake when it comes to code violations.
