    Huh, works for me. Sorry Friend, to be honest, I don't know how to cut and paste. I'll try to find another link.

    thanks for posting, I guess there was too much garbage in the html code, i edited, saved as, and it worked fine. Seems like Government policy and the will of the people are about polar opposites right now.

    Anything done by the People alone, that performs above and beyond a Government organization, will in the end make the Government look inept and weak. This is exactly why they are hamstringing the Border Patrol, in order to save face and discredit a successfully implemented private organization.

    You don't want the peons to get uppity and start thinking they can do things on their own, now do you? :banghead:

    It sorta doesn't matter how many the border patrol arrest.

    They'll pretty much say that for the most part, they got them all.

    The border patrol's equation will be

    Total Border Crossers = N arrested + "a few"

    The minute men provide a data point for a different equation:

    Total Border Crossers = N Observed + "a few"

    We can then derive a final equation:

    Border Crossers missed by Border Patrol = (N Observed - N arrested) + "a few"

    One step closer to revolution.
    If this current situation doesn't qualify as tyranny, what does?

    I count 6 open threads on illegal immigration with comments in the last two days. There is another one that was highjacked in that direction. Could we at least maintain some focus on specific points?

    RealGun...

    This particular topic is beyond the normal immigration argument. It provides evidence of a conspiricy by those in power to undermine efforts to curb the invasion. It provides evidence that higher-ups are intentionally betraying their oath to protect our borders and our citizens.

    That article is almost a year old. Why is it okay for one side to use deceitful tactics to further an agenda but not for the other. I am not blaming you but the original site you pointed us to. They specifically left off the article's original date from the copy and paste.

    No, I didn't catch the date. In any case, the message is disturbing even if it is a year old, yes?

    I remember hearing about this before (maybe even here on THR)...

    If true, this is a violation of the oath taken by every BP officer, administrator, and up the chain of command to Chertoff and Bush. And if THAT isn't impeachable, I don't know what is... :cuss:

    ...but then, since this is SOP for police in New Orleans and Los Angeles anyway.... :banghead:

    This seems like an obvious ploy to frustrate the minutemen into doing something stupid. Which will then create a situation that's perfect for the pro-open border side of the equation to appeal to bleeding hearts.
    I hope these minutemen keep their wits about them. It's not about just guarding the border from encroachment. It's about politics and guarding the border. And, that's an even tougher fight once you have the other side's agenda aimed squarely at you.
    And, the worst part is, these guys are just trying to do the right thing. And most of America agrees with them.

    The minutemen arent and werent even close to letting this discourage them. The minutemen are far from what they are portrayed as by certain media outlets. These are some very organized and backed people from what I was told. They arent going anywhere anytime soon!

    Speaking of the Minutemen, aren't they currently on station at several locations on the border? Seen anything on the news lately? You don't think that news is being intentionally supressed, do you?

    They are trying to bait the Minutemen much like the ACLU has been.

    You know, there are probably a hundred threads on THR about people getting the shaft (or much worse) over $200 tax disputes from armed gubmint ninjas.

    You would think all the 3-letter agencies would be up in arms over millions of non-taxpayers, but there it is... representation without taxation for them, taxation without representation for us.

    Uh, that page is dated May 13, 2005. This story already hit months ago so for anyone that was paying attention it's old news.

    Typical politicians running our government agencies. That's why things are screwed up.
