really, FOX news made that up?
Weird, doesnt look made up to me, maybe you need to do some research!
And there you go pulling the race card again........has nothing to do with the color of anyones skin........has everything to do with the mass exodus of illegals into the US on a weakened border, and something needs to be done about it.
Drop the race card, illegal is illegal.
I use to live in Laredo Tx, most of my friends were Mexicans, I live in Idaho now and talk to them about 2 times a month, you know what they tell me? THat things are so damn bad down there, that it would be dangerous for me to come down and visit because of the drug wars, and inability for the border patrol to keep things in order because of the MASS influx of drug cartels.
Keep your rhetoric to yourself

I'm not so sure about that. The greed and ruthlessness will remain. I think they would just step up human trafficking and kidnapping to take the place of drug trafficking. Those are already lucrative side activities I believe. I can only see human suffering escalating. I just wish we were better at wiping the criminals off the face of the earth as soon as they appear on the scene. I have a feeling we could, but somebody somewhere doesn't want us to.

Most of the hate is not against illegals. It's against cartels raping, kidnapping, stealing and killing people.
DECRIMINALIZE ALL DRUGS = NO MORE CARTEL PROBLEMS.

It's hard to not feel like this sheriff is a "gun-toting redneck", that much is true. However, just because he sounds a bit ungainly doesn't mean he doesn't have a valid point. He (like most of AZ) are ticked that their rights have been trampled on, and for so long.
Instead of coddling to illegals, maybe the feds should support a state when they say they need help? What is this country coming to when undocumented illegals have more say-so than the legitimate government in their own home state?
We can't support our country under the banner of socialism/communism/marxism.
Making everyone happy leads to the creation of nothing.
It's a shame that these people get the bad rap, but they asked for it when they came in illegally. It's also a shame that these people are unknowingly going to be used for votes once Amnesty happens. After that, expect the Dems to do NOTHING for them unless it helps their chance at reelection.
BO has passed whatever he's wanted to, whenever he's wanted to, and quickly. It's nearly as bad as Hitlers power was in Germany. If he can rearrange as much as he has, with all the dems sucking his teat he's unstoppable. He didn't give two *hits and an $%# about the oil spill untill he knew it could affect votes.
(Shakes head) I'm about to leave this country for good. An that is BEFORE the tax increases have hit yet. If this is all they have to offer me (a bunch of excuses and future debt) there is no reason to stay. They would rather have this country in the hands of illegal Mexican immigrants if this is the feds true response.

People want too much to be a party to a "winner". I think that is the biggest reason that third party candidates have such a hard time. they have to overcome the inertia of the 2 party system to wake people up and get them to believe that a third party candidate could actually get elected. As long as it does not appear possible for a third party candidate to get elected, they will never surge past the critical mass needed to convince enough people that their vote will not be "wasted" by voting for someone other than a member of the 2 party system.
Until that happens, people will keep voting for the lesser of two evils instead of who they would actually want to get elected because that is the only way they feel that they will get some "value" from their vote. It is sad, but it is human nature.
Really? So Fox News is innocent of the race card when they made up the Black Panthers claiming they're going to "kill cracker babies" and such?
Congrats. Your post has been awarded the Ignorant and Racist award of the year. Enjoy.
Huh, good job. I was going to suggest to you to stay on topic and not to derail...but...this is mainly about angry white people complaining about non english speaking folks being in their country. So that'd be silly of me to suggest such a thought.

Why do you call me racist? Because I accuse someone who believes violence should be used against immigrants? Are you sure You're not using the race card?
