Enough is enough
Obamao [I know how to spell his name] 2 things!
1. Gulf oil disaster!
2. Deal with the Mexican issue!
In the meantime I'll pay my taxes for now, do something with them.
Last time the Border Patrol did that, they chased down the drug smugglers, killed them, found a large amount of drug's on the Mexicans they killed, and were tried and convicted by a judge who sentenced them to a lengthy sentence. some system we have it must have been the CIA's dope?

Well, I wasn't saying that there are no issues in the border region of Texas, as there certainly is (sic). However, I call this a non-story because we have no idea about the origin of the gunshots nor do we know what the intended target of the shots were. The shots may have come from hunters or target practice.
All we know is that there were gunshots. That is typical of that area. A simple series of gunshots is not news worthy...could you imagine the news reporting every rural gunshot throughout the region...much less the law enforcement resources following up on them. It's ridiculous to read anything into this particular story. It's simply an agenda driven story that, at the current time, has no merit as an aggressive action towards the US or US citizens.
For one to assume that these particular gunshots were aggressive in nature, also suggests that one is in a high state of paranoia.

Mr. Aggie with those statements I don't believe that you have been anywhere near the US-Mexico border for the last 20 years. And if you have it was for shopping trips.
The local news station, being from Laredo, would know what would be a story of being shot at vs. some locals target practicing. The drilling rig is there to make money, and the crew would not clear out because they heard some shots at a distance.
People aren't hunting there this time of year, if they are it's for varmints or hogs, and not sighting in rifles etc. Not very many shots should be going on now (legally).
Suggesting that they are in a high state of paranoia means you don't have a grip on what is happening on the border. Why do you want to minimize this problem as if it's just overreaction and paranoia???
According to the caller, the crews have been hearing shots fired coming from the Mexican side, and have had to stop their work.
