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.
How about when the cops send a package of marijuana to your house, and when you take it inside, the storm your house with a platoon, shoot your dogs dead, through you and your mother-in-law on the floor, and continue the terror attack for some time?
Is that an act of war?
No, of course not. The victims are mnot mallowed to be armed in Prince Gorges county.

That's a damned impressive cabinet you're worked up. Between the President, First Lady and that Cabinet there would be hope and change aplenty.
And don't worry, you wouldn't have much work as my Press Secretary... I'll mostly hang out down in the 'War Room' and not be saying much to the press. Well, except for telling them to bugger off on occasion.
Thanks Jappy, I'm just glad you didn't give me FEMA. I don't think I could take the heat if we had a hurricane. I hope your not implying that I bear any resemblance to the skeletal head who has my job now. In any event, I am honored and will perform my job with the utmost diligence.
Getting back to the subject post, I agree that we should have shot the invaders. I'm not saying kill them. Kneecapping is good. I understand that hurts a lot. Then we could bounce their raggedy selves back across the border.
If we would just respond that way the next few times this happens, perhaps these Mexican army folks, who are obviously moonlighting as drug cartel bodyguards, might realize that their moonlighting job is not so darn easy as they thought. As far as repercussions go, we can handle those.
We beat 'em once. We could do it again, but I don't think it will come to that.
Probably not, Vanderleun, but I'm getting sick of this breaching of our borders. The state department always says something to the effect that they didn't really mean any harm [yeah, like I believe that], gives them a free pass and we continue to give Mexico funds to help interdict drug traffic. Does that sound reasonable to you? It sounds like typical Democrat pussyfooting to me, and I'm not buying it.
