What Border Problem?

I've got a lot on my mind tonight: two more new posts below this one.

EDIT: Incidentally, does anyone know why my Blogger Dashboard is entirely in Portuguese? Could be Spanish. I don't have a babel fish, but by golly, I've got my towel!

Men in Mexican Army Uniforms in Border Standoff, Official Says

Fear not, America! Texas Governor Rick Perry is on the job!

He's ordered an investigation! That'll show 'em!
"It's certainly troubling and unacceptable and a real reminder of how an unsecure border threatens all Texans and the rest of the nation," said Perry spokesman Kathy Walt.
Glad to see the Governor's office is taking the incursion into his borders of a heavily armed military/quasi-military unit very seriously.

Just like some of the navies of poorer nations do a little freelance piracy, the Mexican military and law "enforcement" do a little drug smuggling on the side. Shouldn't the National Guard be involved with this?

I guess we can just cross our fingers and hope that terrorists haven't discovered how porous our southern border... hell, ALL our borders are, right? If wishes were horses, we'd all be eatin' steak. Maybe we can go down and hand out guest worker permits, then there'll be nothing to worry about.

Robosquirel: Have you read Matt Bracken's Enemies Foreign and Domestic? He has another book called Domestic Enemies that deals with a lot of what would ensue were we to remain as in on poor border control. I recommend reading the excerpts of the new book coming out sometime this year. Enjoy!

No, it sounds intriguing, though. I'll have to add it to the stack of deployment reading! Thanks!

I fixed the background; try my blog now. You're the first person to complain. Thank for the comment; I will look for a better background.

Hey, look at that, all better. That's last time I click on strange links from Chile.

THAT is one of the bigger problems.. That, and the reactions of GWB, it's like he's afraid to piss off the Mexicans...

Votes from legal immigrants is the ONLY thing I can figure...

I WILL say this, there's gonna be some DEAD wetbacks laying out in the desert before this is over...

Yeah, I lack PCness...

I lack the capacity to feel much sympathy for illegal immigrants, insofar as, doing the logical extension, if their government should become our government, you can clearly see how La Mordida has inculcated itself into every Mexican governmental nook and cranny, at all levels, vertical and horizontal, from the lowliest citizen to the President himself.

And how they are now, is how we would be should La Raza have its way.

Yeah, Governor -- sarcasm and harsh words -- why, that'll put those Mexican incursionists in their place, by gum!
