If anything the BP needs to use more force. Being ordered by Washington to run away when being attacked and knowing that when they are attacked the American government will not back them up if they defend themselves is no way to defend this country. The same rules of engagement should apply on the Mexican border as apply in any war zone. Drug cartels which are also as involved in human smuggling as they are drugs are North American terrorist. They just donít pretend to be doing it for political or religious reasons. Just as terrorists use women and children to deliver bombs smugglers are using young poor kids as pawns.

The US hasn't used ANY force along the border, much less excessive force.

Have all members of the UN see the pictures of beheaded Mexicans and Cartel's hanging from tree's and telephone poles and freeway overpasses lately? Those are just some of the crimes committed in border towns within minutes of the United States. We need the military and more BP their now. No more should ever be allowed to come in. Give me a break.

Official proposes bullet tax to curb Chicago crime

By DON BABWIN
Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP)- As Chicago struggles to quell gang violence that has contributed to a jump in homicides, a top elected official wants to tax the sale of every bullet and firearm - an effort that has national gun-rights advocates already considering a legal challenge.

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle submitted a proposed budget on Thursday that would impose a tax of a nickel for each bullet and $25 for each firearm sold in the nation's second-largest county, which encompasses Chicago.

Preckwinkle's office estimates the tax will generate about $1 million a year, money that would be used for various county services including medical care for gunshot victims. Law enforcement officials would not have to pay the tax, but the office said it would apply to 40 federally licensed gun dealers in the county.

Through last week, the city reported 409 homicides this year compared to 324 during the same period in 2011. Although the violence still doesn't approach the nearly 900 homicides a year Chicago averaged in the 1990s, officials say gang activity was largely to blame for a rash of shootings earlier this year.

The U.N. maintains a military force between North and South Korea without a murmur about excessive force. We should adopt the same procedures and postures used at the Korean border to defend our own border. That should shut up the idiots at the U.N..

Jan 1, 1942: United Nations created

On this day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill issue a declaration, signed by representatives of 26 countries, called the "United Nations." The signatories of the declaration vowed to create an international postwar peacekeeping organization.

On December 22, 1941, Churchill arrived in Washington, D.C., for the Arcadia Conference, a discussion with President Roosevelt about a unified Anglo-American war strategy and a future peace. The attack on Pearl Harbor meant that the U.S. was involved in the war, and it was important for Great Britain and America to create and project a unified front against Axis powers. Toward that end, Churchill and Roosevelt created a combined general staff to coordinate military strategy against both Germany and Japan and to draft a plan for a future joint invasion of the Continent.

Among the most far-reaching achievements of the Arcadia Conference was the United Nations agreement. Led by the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union, the signatories agreed to use all available resources to defeat the Axis powers. It was agreed that no single country would sue for a separate peace with Germany, Italy, or Japan-they would act in concert. Perhaps most important, the signatories promised to pursue the creation of a future international peacekeeping organization dedicated to ensuring "life, liberty, independence, and religious freedom, and to preserve the rights of man and justice."

No Country has ever treated another Country to the perks of legal citizenship like America has done for Mexico's people.We give many Country's aid and support. We feed even more and the U.N. member's have done far less in this regard than any other civilized Nation. But we are a Country of laws and many have tried to take full Advantage of this Country. Geographically you know which Country I mean. And at the peril of our own Sovereignty we come here and vent our frustration. We will not be the leader of the free World for long if we continue to do more for other Countries than we do for U.S. citizens.... got that?

UN Agenda 21:

"In a nutshell, the plan calls for governments to take control of all land use and not leave any of the decision making in the hands of private property owners. It is assumed that people are not good stewards of their land and the government will do a better job if they are in control. Individual rights in general are to give way to the needs of communities as determined by the governing body. Moreover, people should be rounded up off the land and packed into human settlements, or islands of human habitation, close to employment centers and transportation. Another program, called the Wildlands Project spells out how most of the land is to be set aside for non-humans.

U.N. Agenda 21 cites the affluence of Americans as being a major problem which needs to be corrected. It calls for lowering the standard of living for Americans so that the people in poorer countries will have more, a redistribution of wealth. Although people around the world aspire to achieve the levels of prosperity we have in our country, and will risk their lives to get here, Americans are cast in a very negative light and need to be taken down to a condition closer to average in the world. Only then, they say, will there be social justice which is a cornerstone of the U.N. Agenda 21 plan."
