Stop calling these criminals "mexican nationals". I'm so tired of the corporate media and their euphemisms for illegals.

Rescue them, then throw them back over the border!

Illegal - breaking the law. How stupid is the government getting?

Windy City Player - WTF is a Mexican national? It appears that a Mexican national is a "Guest" that lacks the ability to swim but has the capabilty to figure out that the US taxpayer can support him/her.

Funny. Yet sad. But we have to laugh, or else. At any rate, loved the post.

mcss - Agreed, it is both. If we don't keep some minimal sense of humor through this mess we will be as mad and cold hearted as the corrupt knuckleheads we are trying to kick to the curb.

Do you understand what is going on in this country? Sometimes I feel like I'm the only idiot obeying the law anymore....

Windy City Player - At times it seems like "Alice in Wonderland" and I am confused as to the meaning of all this nonsense. After a few deep slow inhales I return to my senses and realize this is the U.S.A. and she has been throught many difficult times and has endured. The citizenry has always come to the rescue of this nation and replaced either the far left or far right ideology.
We have our work cut out for us, we better roll up our sleves to protect and defend what is at stake here - we are witnessing the dismantlement of the rule of law that has served this nation well for over two hundred years. I, for one will not tolerate it, this is a nation built on law and without that foundation the nation will be subjected to a perverse socialistic method of government that lends itself to being everything to everyone. I want no part of it.
Sorry, I digress, went off on a tangent there. I, like you, obey and trust the law to a fault, as a citizen the expectation is to live within the law and respect it as being just. I do.

Well said, I will do whatever I have to do to survive and protect my family first. America has been through these times before and I'm sure we'll endure...All we can do is our job, vote for common sense.

Windy City Player - Back at you sir, well said on your part! The voice and the weight of the mainstream citizenry has always carried the day for this nation - it is the great equalizer against the many different forms of tyranny that have attempted to subdue this nation.
I've apprieciated your posts on this and other threads and I am quite confident you understand the threat here and will do your part, with your voice and with your vote, to uphold the rule of law and dignity of this nation.
Stand strong and kick this current crop of bums to the curb my friend.
