Brainfreeze, you just don't understand how this works. The troops are being sent to the border to do critical stuff like wash trucks and paint rocks, not enforce the border.
The argument being that with a soldier to wash their truck or paint their rock the border patrol guy can go out in the desert and have a nice nap. Er... I mean combat the dastardly illegals and smugglers.Aug 28, 2010
I'd say he has no chance, McCain has a bundle of cash left over from his surrender to Obama and has proved there is no level he won't stoop to and no lie he won't tell to get elected again.Aug 27, 2010
With this decision I see a lot of fun news stories coming up, send off a carefully written letter, get lots of attention. Make a lot of folks miserable, cost a pile of money.
Bring in an English teacher as your expert witness in court to carefully parse your words and get out of jail because you "followed the law" exactly and aren't guilty of anything.Aug 24, 2010
I sure hope the Democrats pick someone decent, I'm going to have to vote for them if McCain wins the Republican nomination.Aug 21, 2010
I recalled seeing this article and since we found some bugs that need killed I Googled up Terminix reviews. I'd suggest anyone looking for bug service do the same.

Icecat, the military shouldn't be a problem as the 14th amendment says "subject to the jurisdiction" which the military are.Aug 14, 2010
Just because they are buying donuts in Douglass it doesn't mean they are actually going to go out and arrest any illegals.
Call me when they start loading up the buses with their catch to take the illegals back to Mexico.Aug 13, 2010
Whoa there big John...
You are supposed to wait to stab conservatives in the back until after the election!
Get back on the plan that has served you well for so many years now:
Running = Suck up
Elected = IgnoreAug 13, 2010
We spent some time in Columbus, NM a while back and got a real eye-opener. There are kids with both parents Mexican citizens that are US citizens! The parents arranged to be north of the border when the child was born gaining him US citizenship.
School bus stops at the border crossing to pick the kids up and haul them into town so we can pay to educate them.
Post Office delivers bunches of mail to boxes by the checkpoint so the folks can pick up all their assistance checks we have to pay for.
It is time for this nonsense to end.Aug 12, 2010
How would you open a concrete dam enough for the spring run-off flows? It might be doable but I'm betting it would be very expensive. Keep in mind the amount of stuff being washed down the river in flood, it isn't like the fairly clean water flowing over most dams.Aug 10, 2010
