Well obviously, the key to compensating for the total lack of border security in the Southwest, is to lower the target fondling age of teenage girls by the TSA from 16 to 12.

What...is going on in this administration I voted for?

The amazing thing about those who want the borders to remain open is that they are the same ones who see no problem with Castro and other Commies building walls to keep their people IN these "worker's paradises".

Build a huge trench with barbed wire along the top and make sure it's patrolled, heck, bring the troops home from Germany to guard it. We have the right to protect ourselves, and who cares what the Canadian or Mexican Governments think, they don't support us NOW, anyway.

"My point was that the activist judiciary, like the Ninth Circus, ensures a win."

Even if what you say is true--you still fight. You do not give up. This is past the point of political correctness, political posturing or got-cha politics. Not to sound overly-dramatic but we are talking about the security of the nation. So if it means taking on the ACLU, Ninth Circuit or whomever, you do it. You don't concede. We owe it to the brave Americans who have died defending this country. What will the next generation of Americans think of us if we refuse to stand and fight and simply give away their birthright?

When a major incident occurs, the sale of guns and ammo will be banned to forestall an all out religious war.
The time to prepare is NOW!

This can't be repeated enough.  Especially everyone living in main stream America.  Once another attack comes, it will be too late to prepare. The time is now.

For all of those wanting to buy a gun/rifle but keep dragging their feet, the time is now.

When the stuff does hit the fan, all those gun stores will be sold out in a New York minute.

It is my belief that the majority of the population has no idea of racial differences, and in fact, run from them or deny them for fear of seeming "racists".

some, but not all. most, in fact, aren't fooled by all that crap, even if they won't admit it. people are amazingly discerning; it's only when the elites try to make everything indistinguishable, same-same, and unisex that the issue becomes obscured. But they're morons and we all know that.

He has been trying for a long time to get our govt to listen, and it wasn't until 9-11 that they finally had to face the problem.

You would think the media would put him on more, except maybe he doesn't want 'more' publicity.  But he sure has done us all a great favor!

We need to re-iterate the danger involved with open borders. Apparently the entire federal govt. well at least 99% do not think there is a problem with open borders.

THERE IS A BIG PROBLEM. I WILL POST IF I DEEM IT NECESSARY.

I haven't watched MSNBC since 9-11.  Lester Holt was on that morning and I was on the computer when the towers were struck. 

Not sure why I pulled away from MSNBC but I am now hooked on Fox.  I heard too, that Steve works for MSNBC.

Feds Worry Over Al-Qaeda Use of Mexican Border

 

"New intelligence information strongly suggests that Al Qaeda has considered infiltrating the United States through the Mexican border, top government officials told Congress on Wednesday," according to the AP. "In his written testimony, Admiral Loy cited recent information from investigations and detentions as the basis for his concern about the Mexican border. He added, "Several Al Qaeda leaders believe operatives can pay their way into the country through Mexico and also believe illegal entry is more advantageous than legal entry for operational security reasons."http://www.steinreport.com/

I've heard the PC speak "this is not about religion" from several major politicians, including Dubya.

I wonder if they are trying to prevent what they KNOW is happening by trying to brainwash Americans into thinking that we're wrong about this. If so, they are doing this Nation a Grave mis-service.

Locked and Loaded.

I love President Bush with all my heart, but I have that right to disagree with him, like I did with my father from time-to-time.

But I do disagree with the policy's America has taken on concerning our borders.  (Or lack of policies).  Some say the President needs to keep the Mexican border open to keep our relationship for that head of Mexico (forgive me, I never can remember their names OR spell them). 

Personally, I think it's too late to close the borders now.  And personally, I believe the government could care less what we think about our open borders. :(

The border thing is a major disagreement with me and many Americans. Sheer logic dictates you do not leave your borders go unchecked and let the enemy come within.

"I've heard the PC speak "this is not about religion" from several major politicians, including Dubya."

Actually, I don't think this is a war between religions, either. I don't consider Islam a religion. It's evil to it's very core.

This is a war between religion and evil, and I haven't seen anything from the Muslim community to convince me otherwise.

"Build a huge trench with barbed wire along the top and make sure it's patrolled,"

After all the rhetoric on different threads about this, FD, I've come to believe that's the only way to go.
The cost of anything we build would be negligible compared to what we're paying now and what we'll pay when the attack comes.

If your home is filling up with water, the first thing to do is stop the water, then you can concentrate on the damage done.
So far we've done neither one.

How quickly people forget the anger following the attack of 9-11, but there was confusion, too. We didn't know for a day or two who to blame.
It won't be that way after the next attack. We know who our enemies are.

It will only take a few mosques blown up for our federal government to declare martial law across the land.
At that point, it will be too late to get prepared to defend your home and family.
When guns are outlawed, we all know who will have guns (and throat slitters).

I agree, that we fight on every front. But, my point was that organizations like the ACLU. ably aided by the judiciary are undermining our effort. To merely fight is not enough for our survival, we must WIN. The ACLU is adversial to that result.

Great post. It seems the braintrust in DC is so worried about not offending any particular group that they either
A) depend on for votes or
B) think that they can siphon votes from to hurt the other side of the aisle
that the safety of the country is forgotten. None of them seem to remember that WE ARE AT WAR!
Political correctnes will be the end of this country. How many liberal, as they are forced to pray to Allah or are about to be beheaded, will think "at least I didnt offend anyone or hurt their feelings"

PC has no place in a time of war.

It's frightening, I'm telling you.  And I am not sure how many people in here call or write to their Reps about this, but surely the lawmakers know that we are finding out.  They might try to sweep this under the rug, but we can still find it.

OK, let's say a nuke goes off 40 miles away from where you live.

Communications are out,computers are fried, radio's out, TV's out, and no one knows what to do.

Will your police, firemen, and scattered homeland security people be able to instruct 200,000 people on the fine art of staying alive in the critical first few hours after the blast?

Someone has to get real.

And real fast.

This topic of open borders infuriates me. It is our govt. who is promoting guest worker programs, illegals to enter and they even let many stay.

No, I brought this up because it was debated here some time ago just how much Mexicans look like Arabs, and how that was the Mexican border risk.

We may as well face the facts. Very few in our governments - either federal or state - want to close the borders. They prefer the many supposed benefits derived from importing cheap labor, votes and not getting ethnic voting blocs mad.

When the WMD goes off, we'll have to look out for ourselves. They'll blame it on someone in the power structure (probably Bush or the CIA), not "open borders".

America is now an "open" country, ole-ole-in-free to whomever wants to make the effort to cross the borders and get away with it. Our politicians plan to do nothing about it, for any reason, to reverse it. Nothing!
