It is a federal responsibility to defend the borders of the country and they aren't doing a very good job of it...
    Months to send reinforcements? You would think it would have taken less time since they were so close by in Iraq.

    If the Federalities would stop giving incentives to come here (illegally) the problem would "lessen"!

    That would take some LOUD and PERSISTENT statements by 'we the people' to TPTB (maybe even following through with retiring more folks in 2012)... think it will happen?

    They kicked our butt at San Antonio but we got them back at San Jacinto.

    I think we need to remove all of our troops from overseas, invade Mexico and make it our 51 state, and rename it "Old Mexico".

    I like the idea of making Mexico a 'territory' of the USA for about a decade. As long as it is only a territory, we do not have to extend too much to them... until we clean up the mess down there.

    One positive thing: It would be easier to defend a 100 mile border at the bottom of Mexico, than a 2000 mile border now.

    Then we can merge Canada in also and have the N American nation. Lots of natural resources, lots of cheap labor, and enough commerce to by far be the largest economy in the world...

    Gee, we can go back to being the world bully folks think we are now...

    That would go over well. Central America would feel besieged with loony tune California on one coast, liberals on the east coast, and a bunch of corrupt criminals to the south and socialists to the north.

    Never going to happen. We have prettier money than you and I doubt we want to give it up.

    Agree with the prettier $$$. The new US $$$ bills (all sizes) are UGLY IMO.

    And I agreed the N American nation probably will not happen either... too practical an idea to fly...

    Hey Printer: Ever see the 'art' silver certificates from the late 1800's? Really interesting 'art' on the bills front, and 2 (yes two) presidents on the back.

    Or turn the area over to TSA.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    I still say that if we stop handing illegals the world on a silver platter, they will stop coming and we won't have to spend one cent to secure the border.
    It's a mechanical device, designed by humans, built by humans and operated by humans. What could possibly go wrong?
