This is just a little reminder,
The border is safer than ever.

The family of Brian Terry mourns the loss of their son at the hands of ATF smuggled guns,
Hundreds other also,
And the ATF and HOLDER lie their hearts out.

In the meantime, Arizona calls up their state militia and Texas volunteers are doing the same....

It's ALMOST AMERICA down here,
ALMOST AMERICA??????

Typical high level crapper damage control
"I am in communication with local officials and have expressed my full support as they continue investigating this isolated incident. I am also in consultation with federal governmental entities to support any additional security precautions that may be necessary and will remain engaged to assist in the development of any future risk assessment strategies.
"My thoughts are with the victim and her family at this time. I am praying for a speedy and full recovery. This incident highlights the unique challenges confronted by our city. While El Paso remains the safest large city in the country, our lives are closely connected and impacted by the ongoing situation in Ciudad Juarez. I remain committed to supporting increased U.S.-Mexico cooperation to help our neighbors confront the cartel syndicates wreaking havoc across our border."

And if Arvin West was congressman, it wouldn't be happening at all..........

While I agree that the shots, mot shot is disturbing. He delivered the correct message. I hardly expected his office to announce the mobilization of Ft Bliss and an invasion. He is asking us to be calm and he will keep an eye on the situation.

If the us would drop the war on drugs then they would take the money out of the drug trade and violence would drop. Drugs don't cause violence money causes violence. Did'nt we learn anything at all from prohibition.

Legalize it cut the violence and deal with it as a medical problem.

Crime rates show Atlanta Georgia among the most dangerous and el paso among the safest. One freak accident does not change that.
