Well heck, maybe they all had concussions. Funny, he sits in a Mexican jail, while 12 million break our laws, pump out anchor babies as fast as they can and have Christmas in a country they are in illegally.

They did not need a judge to see he did not have criminal intent. When you have paperwork showing you tried to do the right thing even a flaming idiot would realize he had no intentions of committing a crime. Just give him the option of forfeiting the gun or turning back.

I have in all my years I have had things taken from me that were totally legal and passable when going into Mexico. I just gave them up a lot of the times or just turned around and went to another crossing. There is no point in arguing with them when they want your stuff or money. Sometimes they take it and do not give me an option. Does not do any good to complain as they all do it. One day they might tell me the food I am transporting is illegal and take it. You just never know as they do not go by Mexican law in many instances. They make up their own.

I was trying to take in some minerals from my collection in the USA into Mexico. They are highly collectible and very clean. An agent told me that I could not pass them because there was dirt on them. I said look at them there is no dirt, they were cleaned. She said that a mineral is dirt. I just turned around and went to another border crossing where someone smarter people worked, and were not interested in extorting me.

I bring minerals into the USA from Mexico. They have the same regulation. They look at the minerals, see they are clean, send me through x-ray. I pay my $10.75 fee and I am on my way.

Persons never get extorted and have things taken away while traveling into the USA that are legal. If a Mexican had a gun and was transporting it into the USA and declared it. They might stop and ask him questions, and then just return him into Mexico.

I saw a lady with kids trying to smuggle a hidden guy into the USA. They questioned her, turned the guy back and decided it would be too big a burden on the kids to arrest her and leave the kids alone. They did take their finger prints and get their particulars. Now that is using your brain.

USA does not enforce hardly any of the laws against Mexican citizens passing illegally. They just turn them around.

Each one of these illegals causes more cost and burdens to Americans then a shotgun that should have just been turned back with the owner.

Glad to see he is back. I read a report that it is Mexican Americans, that are related to people in Mexico that smuggle in high powered weapons by ones and twos for money. They do not declare them because they have criminal intent. Would be interesting to know if they just take away the guns, bribe them and send them on their way. But that would be hard to find out, but I am sure very likely.

I saw a video here in Mexico where there were customs agents in uniforms deeper into Mexico that were supposed to inspect passenger buses going to the US border cities in Mexico. They put special tape on the doors to show that they were inspected and did not need to be searched. The cartel menber handed the agents $3,000 for each bus that passed. It was a very clear hidden video that caught it. You can only imagine how many high powered arms are passed into Mexico daily by Mexicans and Mexican Americans with free passage and clearance by corrupt border agents.

The border agents in the USA that cross drugs, allow illegals to pass through the border booths and other crimes, 99% of the time have Hispanic last names. The crime that has infiltrated the Mexican government is now at the borders and gone far into the USA.

It is the USA that needs to get serious about crime. Because most of the guns and crime being imported into Mexico are by people with Hispanic last Names. It only makes sense. A Mexican criminal would rather do business with a Gonzales then a Smith whether they be American or Mexican.

Sorry for being so long in my posts. But it is hard for me to see something for what it is, and laying some foundation as to why it happens works for me.

I guess you don't read, do you? Obama was not even involved and it was everybody including the Republicans. Let's read from the article:
"U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., confirmed Hammar's release in a statement. She said he was "back safely in the United States."

"These past few months have been an absolute nightmare for Jon and his family, and I am so relieved that this whole ordeal will soon be over," the congresswoman said. " I am overcome with joy knowing that Jon will be spending Christmas with his parents, family and friends."

An aide to a legal representative of the Mexican attorney general's office had told U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson's staff about the pending release after the Florida Democrat's office got word from Hammar's mother, according to a press release from Nelson's office.

"No American should be in a Mexican jail for five months without being able to have his case in front of a judge," Nelson said in that statement. "We're grateful; this is a good Christmas present."

LET'S READ THAT AGAIN: "U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., confirmed Hammar's release in a statement." AND "An aide to a legal representative of the Mexican attorney general's office had told U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson's staff about the pending release after the Florida Democrat's office got word from Hammar's mother, according to a press release from Nelson's office."

NO WORDS ABOUT OBAMA AND THE FAMILY DIDN'T BELIEVE THAT OBAMA WAS DOING ANYTHING.

Yeah, it was supposedly Fox News and Bill O'Reilly that championed his cause to help him out. In fact, Olivia Hammar first called Fox News after his release to thank them. She gave Fox News an exclusive for that information because of their help in getting her son out. Bill O'Reilly says that only Anderson Cooper from CNN was the only other network and broadcaster to really champion his cause too.

See the above post for the articles for the truth. Liberals can never credit Republicans nor Fox News for their part in the help of Jon's release. Supposedly Jay Carney said he knew nothing about it at all. It is sort of like the Benghazi cover up where Fox News and Romney had everything right and now the State dept. admits it with a report.

Ileana Rosanna-Dana Ros-Lehtinen latched on to this late after the Obama Administration, the State Department and Florida Senator Bill Nelson started putting the wheels in motion for his release. And the real joke of your post is fox news: they couldn’t effect the outcome of the election (although they did try everything), and now you want people to believe that Bill O’Reilly and that propaganda network has more sway over the Mexican Government than our Osama-killing President.

Please; get a grip.

Patty, Patty, Patty post your links with verbiage to your lies about Obama and the Marine's release. Funny how Fox News was only involved for several weeks and he was released. BTW, Jon's parents believe that O'Reilly and others on Fox did something whereas they state that they had no help by the state Dept and Obama did nothing.

http://nicedeb.wordpress.com/2012/12/18/obama...
"The parents of Jon Hammar, the former Iraq and Afghanistan War Vet who is being held in Mexico on gun charges, were on with Bill O’Reilly, Tuesday night to discuss his plight.. The parents told O’Reilly that the State Department had told them”over and over” that “they can’t do anything” to help them.

As I reported on Monday, the 27 year old Hammar has been languishing in a Mexican prison cell in Matamoros since August, confined to solitary confinement and now is chained to his bed as our nation’s leaders do nothing to help him.

Bill O’Reilly has been on the case for weeks, determined to move authorities to act on his behalf. He was shocked when Mr. and Mrs. Hammar told him that they had been in contact with the State Dept. and had been told repeatedly that they couldn’t help them.

“Is that right?! O’Reilly exclaimed,“they said they can’t do anything?! Oh that’s a bunch of bull, he added, certainly they can do something! Certainly Obama can do something!”
FUNNY HOW THE PARENTS GOT FOOLED BY OBAMA AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT WHEN THEY SAID THEY COULD DO NOTHING FOR JON. I AM INCLINED TO BELIEVE THE PARENTS WHEN THEY SAY THAT ILLEANA WAS THE MOST INVOLVED OF ALL THE POLITICIANS FOR JON'S RELEASE AND DID SAY MARCO RUBIO AS WELL AS BEN NELSON WERE INVOLVED, BUT NOTHING ABOUT OBAMA. THEY ALSO STATED THAT THE STATE DEPARTMENT WAS USELESS, NO HELP AT ALL.

"Two Republican congressmen called Thursday for a national travel boycott of Mexico until the country releases imprisoned former Marine Jon Hammar, urging "all Americans" to campaign for the war veteran's freedom by turning off the tap on America's tourism dollars.
The statements from Reps. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y., and Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.-- both Marine combat veterans -- came as dozens of lawmakers pressed the Obama administration to more aggressively petition for Hammar's release. Hammar, who is locked up in a notorious Mexican prison on what his family says is a trumped-up weapons charge, is increasingly gaining the attention of Congress.
Amid conflicting signals about whether U.S. officials were making progress toward his release, Grimm and Hunter called for a national effort to bring Hammar home."
...
"Hunter, meanwhile, questioned what the State Department was doing all this time.
"We need to know that the State Department is doing everything it can to secure his release. So far, I haven't seen the aggressiveness that's necessary and expected under the circumstances," he said.
Dozens of other lawmakers have expressed similar concerns. On Wednesday, nearly 70 members of Congress from both sides of the aisle wrote a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano urging the administration to do whatever it can to "bring Jon home."

Cornel West Quotes:

[On the republican Party]
If they think they have issues with the president not doing enough for the poor now, wait and see what happens if the opposition takes office. Then they would really need a poverty tour.
- Cornel West

[On Capitalism]
We have a market-driven society so obsessed with buying and selling and obsessed with power and pleasure and property.
- Cornel West

[On Black conservatives]
“The need of black conservatives to gain the respect of their white peers deeply shapes certain elements of their conservatism. In this regard, they simply want what most people want, to be judged by the quality of their skills, not by the color of their skin. But the black conservatives overlook the fact that affirmative action policies were political responses to the pervasive refusal of most white Americans to judge black Americans on that basis.”
&#8213; Cornel West, Race Matters

[On Whites in America]
“Without the presence of black people in America, European-Americans would not be "white"-- they would be Irish, Italians, Poles, Welsh, and other engaged in class, ethnic, and gender struggles over resources and identity.(p. 107-108)”
&#8213; Cornel West, Race Matters

Since you seem to be so enamored with Cornel West all of a sudden, I just thought I would share with you a few other things he has had to say in the past. But I’m sure you would have posted these next without my help…right?

LOL!
