anyone go through a southern boarder patrol lately? theres 3 just travelling west between here and tucson. you would not believe the amount of hit tech camera looking thingies and wires and generators that are "watching" you as you approach. in reality, they are cameras, radiation detectors, x-ray, thingamabobbers, and all that other surveillance crap.

many people in my town travel to el paso or las cruces for radiation therapy for cancer treatment (i know this firsthand with a family member). the doctors have to issue a card much like a work excuse for when you come back through one of the boarder patrols, or else you get detained and searched for dirty bombs for setting off the detectors as you try to pass.

if a dirty bomb is going to be smuggled into this country, it certainly isnt going to be via the southwestern US highway system.

i would like to think the same preventative measures are being taken up north.

as for nogales, we are pretty much playing a game of "whack-a-mole" with the mexican cartels. beefing up security there = staying ahead of the game (even though we are far behind).

you crack down on the tijuanna and juarez cross points and the next logical one is nogales. phoenix is already the major distribution hub (and led the US in kidnappings last year thanks to all the drug dealing criminal activity).

all the right wingers and "fear and loathing" crowd who bitch about these preventative measures being taken are the epitome of hypocrites. after all, its just a continuation of "another failed bush policy", right?

- BU...BU...BU...BUSH!!!!

(its so much better when i do it.... )

In the time it took you to type that about 6000 Mexicans crossed.

Try stopping along the road to take a piss when your crossing INEEL territory. The old highway cross's the facilities land. I made that mistake once on a hunting trip, before I could zip up there was a blackhawk hoovering behind me. I found out they have the listening things and vibration sensors all over the place out there besides the cameras and probly a few things we don't know about.
Quietest damn chopper I ever seen though. About all I could hear is a little hum and the swoosh of the blades. They gave me the big pointy finger to get a move on, then followed for a few miles. Talk about nervous.

i was suprised to hear we no longer use the boarder ballons (not sure how true it is but i havent seen one lately).

i remember seeing the first one about 10 years ago between lordsburg and deming (we're talking about bumfuk egypt here) and wondering what the hell that UFO was about 50 miles to the south of the highway. i got to see another one up close, grounded at its "base" when i arrived in yuma.

the damn things were huge. like a giant metlife blimp that was 3 stories tall and about the length of a football field.

if i had to guess, i would say things like the predator drones have rendered them obsolete. (im thinking it is no coincidence the training squadron for the predators has been re-located to my base).

Simple logic. When a Steelers player says something good about another STeelers player, we all expect. When they come out and rip on another Steelers player, then it is probably true, since it takes a lot to make something like that happen.

Obama has screwed with the media enough that they have turned on him. This is the same media that virtually handed him the election by refusing to chase down any stories on him... but sending reporters to sit in Palin's church service "just in case"

A) One of those articles about the Iraqi's wanting us out was 3 years old
B) I'd be curious to see what they think now that the violence has ratcheted back up...
C) Mistrust has shifted from the US onto the Iraq military

The Iraqi people want to stand on their own, but they simply aren't ready...they used the US military as a scapegoat, but the fact is, they still need us and will continue to need us for awhile longer, in spite of Obama's best efforts to hasten us out of there.

Because there's nothing positive that he has done.
