This is a tough one for me. I know several Mexicans in the U.S., here illegally families and all. They work two jobs, they are decent families. I care for them. Yet the accumulative impact of not controlling our immigration is problematic. The human element is often lost in the politicalization of the issue from both sides.

Simple: stop voter fraud! ID a must. Don’t have your ID you don’t vote. NO ID you don’t drive, fly, cash a check, receive medical attention, buy a gun, ammo, etc. NO ID you don’t vote. ID readily available. No excuses. No dead people voting, no double voting. No dirty Chicago style politics in our elections. No illegals voting punto! Where is the media on this?

Come on! Cover Up re Fast & Furious all the way to White House and in Justice. Holder lies and nothing comes of this? I hope the family of the slain Border Patrol agent are aggressive in some form of legal grievance against the misguided leadership. Botched concept and now the lies. Hope and Change huh?

“Jorge Carrillo Olea, founder of Mexico’s leading intelligence center, said the “state has lost territorial control, and therefore governability,” over roughly 50 percent of the country…..Carrillo, who in 1989 founded the Center for Research and National Security, or Cisen, a civil entity overseen by the interior ministry, said Mexico’s crime and public safety problems will last for decades because the society has “reached a point of no return.” BORDER
I use to go to Mexico twice a year as the typical coastal tourist. I ventured in a bit here and there, which took not much effort, maybe a few blocks, to visit colonias and get some experiences beyond the beach front. I had many wonderful encounters in people’s homes and will never forget the hospitality. Now, I am frankly hesitant to venture south of the border. I have friends who have gone south and had bad experiences with dangerous encounters involving their wife and daughters. Too bad. I know the same thing could happen in any major metro area in the U.S. but I did not go to some beach in the U.S., I went for the charm and perceived innocence of a Mexican resort or somewhere away from the resorts. A loss to be sure. I am glad I had the experiences I had way back when and am sorry the country has descended into terrorism….good job to the U.S. drug addicted!

CARNAGE, TERRORISM, SOVEREIGNTY COMPROMISED, NARCO-TERRORISTS, INSTABILITY
I recall 23 years ago chasing Sinaloans in Portland, Oregon. Once the door came off the hinges, one would often find a picture of Jesus Malverde or a small statuette. I have a small picture somewhere of Jesus, I relieved off some Culiacan Cowboy. All these years later, the Cartels still compete. It is only a matter of time until the now and then homicide here gives way to mass executions. It was considered bad form to kill here years ago. You paid back at the rancho, not here because a homicide investigation provided not just the details of the murder, but familial links….gold for me when I worked with a MDTO Task Force…putting the links together…looking back down the pipeline.

Dupednik is a disgrace. I won’t dignify him with the title of Sheriff. Sorry for the Deputies that have to work for this supposed law man. Pathetic. Is he elected or appointed? Elected? Get your head out of your proverbial arse Pima County. Glad I never had to work for an idiot’s delight like this bozo. Disgraceful conduct.

Haiti the Mess: Bless the survivors and the unidentified poor buried in unmarked mass graves, even today. A year later the black hole continues. Where is the damn money? Pathetic. Where is the human interest story? Not re the plight. That is obvious. How about the less obvious: who took the damn money? Find them. Bring the light of truth upon these dastardly deeds.

The societal fabric of Mexico is being assaulted upon at many levels by the narco terrorists. Tim Johnson @ McClatchy News reports on a vile assault upon the educational system of Ciudad Juarez. This truly is akin to Afghan or Iraqi travesties aimed at destroying a nation’s future.
