What he failed to mention was what a devastating effect this failed GM bailout has had on us all. They have yet to fully repay and won't unless their stock rises considerably.

Every congressman is given an opportunity to read anything into the congressional record. Just about any topic is accepted. Usually at the end of the day when the vast majority are gone. So you are addressing a very small group. This gives them tv time on cable, local district news and an entry into the record for the folks back home.

In short, only theatrics and no affect on the US.

Don't you worry your pretty little head. There are many volunteers ready to man those borders. And they will do a better job then the useless border agents with all their silly regulations. They will fire first, and explain later.

The queer minutemen out of AZ are defunct sweet cheeks. When they were in El Paso a few years ago they were looking at the border from Interstate 10 and did not go any further. Bunch of fairies!

A simple thing to do is set the border up so that anyone crossing the border illegally would walk into booby trap after booby trap eliminating themselves as they walk further into America. SO everyone who wants to protect the border needs to learn to make claptraps and punji sticks and place them along the levies and farm fields from Ysleta to Falcon Lake. Then along the edges of the border which is invisible in Falcon Lake plant sensitive mines to blow out any and all boats. Maybe they could plant fresh water crocs or alligators in there also. These people would have to be volunteers as they State of Texas and the Federal government does not have the money to fund them. We will also need several people with high powered sniper rifles to protect those going out to set all theses traps. We will have Petro and SupremeChicanoCommander and others lead the raids and lead the border jumpers into the traps.

An even simpler thing to do would be to tell the truth, which you fail to do. How about that GM bailout, JR? Can you admit you were wrong when you stated it had been repaid in full plus interest?

Are you a moron? Minutemen have no arresting powers. If the Mexicants were smart they'd shot your asses for attempting to falsy arrest them. A dead minuteman, now that would be funny if they tried arresting the wrong hombre.

Minutemen and other guests can act as the landowner AGENT.

Meaning, they have the same power to protect property, and whe it's in writing, it's obligated.

Come on wise azz, cross that fence....
