The National Guard and Army Reservists are busy defending my big fat NY ass in Iraq, you silly geese! Read the paper!
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Minuteman border watch leader Chris Simcox has a message for President Bush: Build new security fencing along the border with Mexico or private citizens will.
Simcox said Wednesday that he's sending an ultimatum to the president, through the media, of course - ``You can't get through to the president any other way'' - to deploy military reserves and the National Guard to the Arizona border by May 25.
Knock yourselves out. I'm all for legal immigration too and I'd feel better if you didn't patrol the open borders with rifles anyway. Maniacs. You don't have to freaking shoot the people yearning to be free. sheesh.
Or, Simcox said, by the Memorial Day weekend Minuteman Civil Defense Corps volunteers and supporters will break ground to start erecting fencing privately.
``We have had landowners approach,'' Simcox said in an interview. ``We've been working on this idea for a while. We're going to show the federal government how easy it is to build these security fences, how inexpensively they can be built when built by private people and free enterprise.''
You are misunderestimating the purpose of the current regime, Mr Minuteman, sir. Simplicity and money saving is not in their vocabulary. No no no... it's got to be built by corporations, silly.
They also plan to put up video cameras along the border that can be monitored from home via computer. Can you picture that? What a life you lead when you are riddled with paranoia.
This is very interesting. I had no idea. So the government is really trying to stop fences from going up? And private citizens are willing to pay for it out of the goodness of their hearts? Or is it that they need to print some more money and pay Halliburton to erect official government fences? Or is it because the congresscritters need illegals to do housekeeping for $2/day? I want to know more!
Access to land literally on the border is an issue because so much is state-leased trust property or federally owned, he said.
``You may have to deal with a situation where private property owners erect their own fences and may be faced with the president sending the National Guard to prevent them from protecting their private property,'' Simcox said.
My son was annoyed repeatedly in Arizona by the border patrol just last week (and it's not a gub'mint agency by the way, nor is the border patrol in question set up near the border. It's kind of close to Tucson) because he had a NY license, his last name is Smith, he is of fair complexion and was driving a friend's car registered in Arizona because he's too young to rent one for himself. My boy has long hair too. Out of the car, kid. Beaner check. Indeed. Pretty soon we'll have to carry laminated birth certificates which are USDA certified.
Everyone gets checked each day unless it's raining and then the wusses stay home and blog about them illegals who are stealing their jobs. But it appears that they have created jobs for themselves.
Each time I ever drove past the border patrol hang out when I was visiting, they were breaking for lunch or it was sprinkling. I never had the opportunity to interview them. Darn. They really need to speak to me. Last year, while my son was driving his girlfriend's grandmother's car, the border patrol thought that the tire gauge in the front seat was a hash pipe. How would those fine Americans know what a hash pipe is? Out of the car, hippie.
It's really less of a hassle to live in the NY metropolitan area.
