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.
Of course they did. Mexico bans any immigration. It's a crime in Mexico. (Almost forgot - it's a crime in the US too without papers.) Nobody enters Mexico unless the government lets you. The southern Mexican border is fully-armed with federales and those federales are not kind-hearted, gentle fellows. Their northern border is not, of course.
I've been wondering for weeks how these children were making it across Mexico's southern border and all the way to our border. Mexico has a reputation for being extremely hostile towards their neighbors to the south, especially if they managed to sneak into Mexico. How tens of thousands of children, some of them very young were managing to do it just didn't pass the smell test.
It appears that the conspiracy includes the current administration and that this invasion was planned for years in order to destroy the USofA completely. Apparently some of our brothers are involved in it and just weren't smart enough to say no.
According to a HotAir report this morning, the northern border is very much secured--just not by the U.S. government. No one gets through it without paying off the right cartel, and there are mass graves on the southern side of the border containing the bodies of people whose "papers" weren't right. Also the bodies of small, dead children washing up on the shore of the Rio Grande.
