Furthermore, resources are finally being allocated to the one single country whose illegal immigrants are doing the most harm to the United States ...... Finland!!
(You might think I’m joking NOW...)
As I came back from Canada, at the Houlton, ME entry point a month ago, I was pulled in and interrogated for half an hour over an arrest a decade ago for disorderly conduct (I was in the middle of a divorce, called my soon to be ex-wife a name in front of the police.) I paid a $100 fine the next day in court and it was done. Or so I thought. I almost missed my flight back to Columbus. And for what? Did they really think they were going to keep me out of my own country?
Wouldn’t want to further inculcate our country with the horrors of hockey or curling, eh?
Or palatable beer.
Keep that Moosehead beer ooott.
Well, the ruse of border security has to be carried out somewhere — certainly not Mexico. Too many voters coming across now that Obama is in office. Maybe he will station ACORN accomplices along the border to hand out voter registration forms....
Most definitely. How could I have forgotten that?!
Jennifer Granholm managed to cross the northern border. She's an economic terrorist.
“U.S. begins beefing up Canadian border security”
Oh, Thank God! Oh,wait...........
About time. Those dastardly Canadians, slithering across our border and speaking better English than us. Pretty soon, we’ll have to press 1 for real English, 2 for Spanish, and 3 for the rest of us.
And let’s not forget all those drugs they bring over, and all of our money they send back to their families.
Unlike the Mexican border -- which is half as long - no drug war or chaos rages in the north. Arrests and drug seizures in 2008 totaled less than 1 percent of those down south.
We are being governed by brain addled, PC idiots, as the two above statements well illustrate. This might also be a deliberate plan to move some assets to the north to weaken the southern border even more. Nothing can be ruled out considering the nitwits now in charge.
Always hanging out in office depot parking lots offering to reformat our drives, speaking that strange language of theirs.
The checkpoint going into Buffalo NY is just awful. I was coming back from a getaway in Toronto and Homeland Security treated me like some third-world terrorist. Going to Winnipeg next weekend, hopefully the border is better.
Amazing that they treat citizens this way. I can only imagine that this is recent. It never was so bad even last year at this time.

We did a Niagara Falls trip last September. I can’t tell you how many times we crossed the border. We were never stopped, even with a dog in the car.
Two weeks ago I returned from a week in Finland. I have no cause to pin my return experience on having been in Finland, other than to compare it with my returns from the UK, Germany, Netherlands, France, China, India, Austria, Australia, South Korea, Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway, Mexico and wherever else I've been... but I'm not laughing.
Too late, Howie Mandel made it across .. well so did William Shatner ... but in retaliation we sent them the McKenzie Brothers ......
Suggest a read of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. You'll be near the end before you see it (warning: it's a long read), but you'll recognize it in a flash.
Read it years ago. Know the big themes, but have forgotten much of the detail.
Same for me -- but the read is REALLY different this time. I highly recommend a re-read of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged with today's situation in mind.
My guess is: the movie being made "from" this book will not be at all true to the book (if the "Office of Morale Conditioning" or modern equivalent allows the movie even to be released). Too many
citizens subjects would be angered by the parallels. Buy a copy of the book now, read and contrast with the movie later (if released).
Shiner Bock beats Mosehead all day, everyday.
My Gf is Canadian with a permanent resident card. Pays her taxes to Uncle Sam. I’m also in the same boat. So the logic of this leftist B8tch Napolitano is that we’re killing, stealing, and talking in a non-English language different from Americans?
I already have my family and friends in BC who are now beyond pissed.
Same thing with me. I’m formerly from BC and have settled in this great country. The immigration stops between Canada and the US is as night and day.
When I went back last Christmas, it was straight forward “hi, are you declaring anything and what is your purpose in Canada?”
US side: “So you’ve been in Canada for how long? Are you sure? Where do you live? What is your status in the United States? How much do you have in your wallet? Where do you work? (for the next 20 minutes)
Exactly what I went through coming from New Brunswick into Maine last month.
Still have an old 30+ year old paperback. I might dig it out and give it a read sometime soon. After a while some of the details from Ayn Rand, Orwell, Huxley and others begin to run together.
TSA/INS agents get cockier at the Canadian border because they don’t have to face PO’d Hispanics coming back from Mexico. Those with the attitude problem were probably laughed at the southern border.
Now when was the last time a Predator drone was used at the southern border? (cough)
I dug out a “35th Anniversary” paperback — definitely NOT what I read the first time. Very worth a re-read.
What a bunch of idiots. This makes almost as much sense as stripsearching little old ladies in wheelchairs in Airports... gotta be fair to everyone now.
When are Government types gonna get, that you TARGET THE TARGETS, not everyone else!
Is the build-up more for keeping Canadians out of the U.S., or to prevent U.S. citizens from escaping? Just asking.
Very interesting! Who, pray tell, is making ancient records available to US Immigration?
Finish the fence, send all caught illegals back (because they have no American Rights as non-citizens) and send those who argue otherwise to me.
Every year we are invaded by seasonal Canadians who come here (Florida). They stay for a few months then go home. They do not take our jobs and very few steel our woman. And they are educated and clean.
On the other hand the southern border is inundated by unwashed, uneducated, untrained, criminals who come here and get on welfare and NEVER leave.
Still this magic negro is stopping the fence?
One stupid assclown the community organizer.
Yeah we need protection from those crazy Canucks...(sarc)
No problemo with warfare on the southern border. This pandering to Mexico and Hispanics is completely absurd.
Maybe that's the plan so when we get overrun with Mexican drug warefare, "the culture of the drunk" and we convert to Spanish as a main language we won't be able to escape....
Easy. NCIC, the FBI's big brother system. Here's where I fit in, I guess:
1. Individuals who have been fingerprinted and whose criminal history record information has been obtained.
The Candian gangs clean their own crime scenes and apologise for the noise. ;-) (Just teasing my Canadian pals)
Candian = Canadian
The increased security is to provide the necessary infrastructure for tightening the surveillance of the border for later, when Obama will be restricting commercial and individual traffic across the border.He will restrict the amount of currency which can exit the USA and the amounts that can enter. Wire tranfers between Canadian and US banks will likely be prohibited or require "pre-approval." Zero does not want people with dual citizenship in the USA and in Canada doing their banking and investing through Canada, which has a far more secure and stable finance system. (The US banking system can't compete with Canada's.) This is legal now, and Obama will likely make much of that illegal to keep capital inside the USA. This is the continuing war against America's "investment class" who are mostly conservatives.
This is just the beginning. People wanting to slip up to Canada for a hockey game, or a weekend of shopping will be put through interrogations at the border upon re-entry in order to cast a chill on such travel.
The free flow of capital between Canada and the USA is likely about to be restricted in the coming months.
The sooner we are rid of these Zero isolationists, the better.
This is not about political correctness.Its about letting in poor Mexicans who are of a politically correct ideology, and preventing Canadians from entering the USA who are largely not of politically correct ideology. Canadians do not have revolutionary barrios inside the USA.
There are miles and miles of the Southern border one can simply walk across with no challenge. On the Canadian border it has been the same,but that will now change , but it won't change in the South.
Thats why we have the minutemen watching the Mexican border , and not the Canadian one. The Canadian border is not as permeable as the Southern border , even without the new "Surveillance" announced by Napolitano.
