We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I recently flew to baja Mexico to visit a family friend...The initial stop in Mexico required buying a pass for the airplane and immigration certificates for each traveler. I had to provide passports, pilot's license, Mexican insurance, registration and proof of ownership for the plane...At each subsequent landing I was approached by armed guards who recorded the airplane and pilot information...Now, the friend who has been living in baja for fifteen years owns a home, sort of, as it is only a life estate. It goes back to the Mexican estate holder when he dies...Gringos cannot own Real Estate in Mexico except in some sort of third party estate arrangement...If our illegals were treated this way, they and the media would be shocked, shocked I tell you...
A simple question ... Does participation in any of these raucus, sometimes violent, pro-illegal immigration rallies or demonstrations provide sufficient "reasonable suspicion" or even "probable cause" to detain someone, or at least ask for identification?
I say that it does. What better venue to round the lot of them up and drop them all off on the other side of the border? Then they can present themselves peaceably at the border crossing one by one and prove that they have a right to reenter.
If the World Court "overturns" the Second Amendment - that is, claims that its judgment supersedes the Bill of Rights, we might rally enough support to get the US to ignore the World Court (and related entities) for good.
