Yes, because 100 plus billion per year spent on foreign criminals is a good idea.

We had the Bracero Project then, Josh. We had wide open border because we needed Mexican field workers. It's the same today, big biz needs cheap labor. Mexico and C. America is where it comes from.

We'd have a plutocratic revolution if you actually shut the border. "Damn it! Now where are we going to find people to do the crappy jobs for three dollars an hour?"

California? Are you a Mexican Border Patrol agent? Keep those knotheads from the Northwest out whatever you have do. I'd hate to see them turn a nice part of Mexico like California Norte into the Northwest. You've seen what Courtney Love did on her own.

I wonder if saving 100 billion a year would trickle down into the public education system.

That 100 billion is a "conservative" number I'm sure.    ;D

A conservative number...that sounds "right."  ;D
I think Pigmeat is right too. We should keep out the illegal Courtney Love type immigrants.

I thought he was out hunting rabbits when he pulled his shotgun through a barbed wire fence, snagged the trigger, gave it a good yank to free it and blew his head off? It happens a lot to guys in the woods who have angry, unstable wives. Usually happens close to their house or where he parked to go hunting. It's a puzzling phenomena.

Then again, it could have been some farmer who though the hairy lil' fella was a mini-Bigfoot disguised as a hippy after his livestock and let him have it with great-Great Grandpa's buffalo gun. There are myriad of possibilities with this case. Where's Miss Cleo when you need her?

Hunting rabbits with a shotgun. Isn't that overkill?    ;D
