The wasted investment on the local bridge to now where needs to be the only point of discussion.

NOT ONE trucker wants to risk the drug thug infested Mexican side to attempt crossing at the rural outpost.

The political trade off, no fence to allow the drug trade to flourish, is the reality.

WHY do the local politicians resist the border SECURITY?

The pay must be great!

Their resitance comes after their pockets are stuffed...corruption and greed abound.

just build a wall like they did in Berlin
or like the one the Romans built in North east England
to keep the scotch midgets out
you will not have build it as high as the Berlin wall you could make do with a six foot one for Petro and his gang this would amount to climbing Mount Everest

For decades, American Indian activists and others have been asking, urging, and haranguing the Washington Redskins to ditch their nickname, calling it a racist slur and an insult to Indians. They have collected historical and cultural examples of the use of redskin as a pejorative and twice sued to void the Redskins trademark, arguing that the name cannot be legally protected because it’s a slur. A group in the House of Representatives also recently introduced a bill to void the trademark. The team has been criticized from every different direction, by every kind of person. Today, the mayor of Washington, D.C. goes out of his way to avoid saying the team’s name.

Why, then, has nothing changed? Because the choice of the team’s name belongs to one person, Washington owner Daniel Snyder. He has brushed off the controversy with arm waves at tradition, competitiveness, and honor. Earlier this year, some Redskins flunky was assigned the job of locating high school teams around the country called Redskins, and found 70 of them, which proved very little except that the Redskins are capable of spreading a bad example to the young.

This is why I refuse to watch football with my husband ever again. If the NFL can be vile and racist, then I won't give them an ounce of my money.

if somebody entered my home without my permission, don't I have the right to search for them, and kick them out of my house?

is it racist for me to do so?

how would you like it if someone entered YOUR house without your permission. and then, some idiot says you don't have the right to search for them, and kick them out of your house because that would be racist?

that is exactly what every foreigner is doing when they enter the usa (MY HOME) ILLEGALLY.

and when they get jobs with fake ids, enroll their ILLEGAL kids into our schools to take advantage of our free enrollment policy, go to our hospitals for free, get welfare illegally, VOTE, etc, they are actually STEALING from the taxpayers which include me.

are you saying that we have no right to deport these bastards because in your eyes, you see searching for them to deport them is racist in nature?

YOU lady are an idiot.

I don't take kindly to your insults. I did not say you couldn't shoot some buzzard who invaded your home. That's exactly what I would do after I kicked him in the nuts. But it is racialist to insist on calling football players Redskins. That's where I draw the line and I defy you to show me how such a name is positive and uplifting. I don't care who comes to this country as long as they are kind and decent and follow the law. You yourself are not American, which is proven by your moniker. Asian is not American and there's a reason why we dropped the big one on you in 1945. Having said that, I did not come here looking for a fight and I hope you and I can make nice in the spirit of cooperation and harmony.

A three foot high one kept Petro and DC
Dave at bay, so they had to burrow under it like rats to get to become misfits in civilization.

But don't build a heavily fortified one like the French did, called the Maginot Line, that lasted about fifteen seconds as the Wehrmacht Blitzkrieg began, and the French Army hauled ass outta there.

I think you mean "they turned tail and ran." You don't have to be vulgar to make your point.

Don't forget the Germans invaded the Balkans too. That is undoubtedly where they learned that tactic since the Greeks are renowned for their rear attacks. They've been assaulting from the rear since time immemorial.

The point is, the point has been made, as you acknowledge. The vulgar is used successfully when addressing dumb people. That would obviously include you, komrad.

This group is even more one sided than the gang of idiots the Senate assembled to write S744. The article says they were meeting in regards to the US-Mexico competitive agenda. In other words, the rich people still want more slaves. It always causes a major protest when government tries to regulate anything the rich want to do.

You can't dry hump a wet hole. The auditor in SISD has spoken and now it's time for everyone to come clean. The four honchos put on leave are either scapegoats or the ringleaders. Two of the honchos had to defend their daughter against charges of lesbianism and now they have to try and save their own hide.
