If I ran into any agents of any government that conducted themselves the way the border patrol officers conducted themselves in this incident, not only would I not respect them, I'd take every legal measure available to me to see that they are held accountable for their reprehensible behavior.


Agreed.

There are many people here that simply don't want to even visit America any more, like those two Canadians must be by now. We are unwilling to be treated like that for no better reason than some little man who feels powerless elsewhere in his life has been given a little power by the state, which seems to have little interest in how such people behave or represent the nation. They are the face of America to most non-Americans, and they basically say to take your tourism and shopping dollars somewhere else.

A few years back, they seemed to have made a temporary effort to retrain airport personnel, who were driving the domestic airline industry into the ground. People simply were unwilling to fly through American airports, and it was easy to track just how much.

But they did nothing about the people who interrogate drivers at the border. There was nobody to complain about that, since the people harmed by that are spread more thinly and are hurt less obviously. That mall that those Canadians wanted to visit has no way to know that people didn't spend money there that day because of border guards, people that likely never will again, either.

The last time I was in an American airport, I was subjected to the same treatment as was common a decade earlier from a little person in uniform. I'm unwilling to put up with it, and as a result, my wife and I don't return to the places like Las Vegas, New Orleans, San Diego and San Francisco that we used to like to spend time in.

I doubt that places like those would be able to discern how much of their city's recession was related to related to losses in tourism attributable to the behavior of INS personnel rather than problems with the economy. Without an economic incentive, America apparently has no reason to want its border personnel to be friendly. Those people seem to be functioning as the human version of barking and snarling dogs patrolling the chain link perimeter of a property

Disagree.

But how about just that right there? You know that that is a lie. No such calculator exists that will generate more than an answer. You cannot find one that will generate all of the intermediate steps I provided, and you must know that by now. Plus, you ignored my explanation regarding the ampersands and hashmarks, which were clearly limited to places where I had inserted the gas constant that I had selected and copied from a chart. I told you and showed you that, but you had no interest in it. You just continued making the same claim even now about me using a calculator and copying its output.

Sorry, but I consider that belligerent and unethical. You know or should know that you are wrong in your denigration of what was intended to be my gift to you. My standards for myself are much higher than those you ascribe to me, and my standards for you are also much higher than you have met with your repeated and repeatedly debunked allegations.

I said nothing about you that I didn't think was true. I said that you were treacherous. ungrateful, unable to feel remorse, innumerate, ill-mannered, and mentally unstable. Those words describe how you behaved.

The words you used to describe me such as fraud and cover-up are simply incorrect. There was no misrepresentation on my part, and nothing to cover up.

Of course it was aimed at me. And retaliation for what?

What an amazing coincidence that that was exactly where my transcript ended as well.

I'm with Tide on this one, and you and I are very far apart. I was sickened by the recording as well, but by the border guard. I completely understood the reaction of the tourist. Free people don't tolerate such things if they don't have to.

Listen to an acquaintance of mine. He knows a little bit about violins too.

He was like, "Hey girl, hold your head like this".

I was like, "Owww"

He said, "You'll get used to it."

Then he had the tip of my bow just below his Adam's apple.

It doesn't happen just at border crossings. That type of reaction from law enforcement has become commonplace in the U.S. Anyone that thinks that we, as citizens, must immediately comply with the demands a law enforcement officer makes, ends up contributing to and supporting the continued loss of freedoms in this country. People who shout or whine that we must keep our borders safe, and that type of treatment is appropriate for people visiting here - because of a potential terrorist threat or terrorism - are fooling themselves, and again, contribute to the continued loss of freedom in the U.S.
I couldn't agree more.

I don't know. Maybe. Who knows what would constitute advances from something like nanoanomaly?- when she's sober, I mean. We've seen her drunken lunges at male posters which are none too subtle. She generally ask them to pet her "kitteh." But sober, I can't say.

The Green Mamba is a beautiful snake. There are actually three species of Green (Eastern, Western and Jameson's Mamba -that has two subspecies). All three are very beautiful, I would say the one you find here, the Eastern Green Mamba takes the cake for the most handsome snake.
They are not nearly as aggressive as the Black Mamba, but they still belong to Genus Dendroaspis, so they are not to be toyed with. Their venom is highly potent and fatalities can be rapid. Plys, they are aboreal, so contact with humans happens seldom.
Oh, the inside of the mouth is pure white.
Did you mean this text?

Mark 16
17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

It's sad that people take this literally, that they even have snake handling churches in some parts of America. And I strongly doubt they use all the safety equipment I've seen the Reptile Park boys use when they "milk" the snakes in their show.

No wonder there have been some fatalities.

I didn't see those myself but she/he/it certainly has quite a reputation around topix, from what I've read and although it's not something most women would do, offers such as 'pet my kitteh' certainly could be a come on to some.

You said you didn't like it when people killed off a species, but the Brits did exactly that and you called them lucky. That's hypocrisy. Make up your mind.
What dangerous snakes have they had? The common Adder is all they have.

Wolves and the feline was hunted into extinction, that is a pity. But what country has not caused severe devastation to its wildlife? Sure, the Brits hunted the wolves into extinction, but here in SA, our Big 5 was also in big trouble. Currently, we are fighting rhino poaching.

In the States, your numbers of bear and bison are declining and you have a major conservation effort ahead of you.

I said the Brits struck it lucky, because they have. Even if you add the wolf to the mix, there is not one animal in the entire British Isles that I would fear one on one.
