Speak for yourself Mike but there are many of who still believe in enforcing our laws as opposed to selecting picking and choosing which ones to enforce according to the far left liberals. Now, which camp are you in? 1 week ago
As usual, they make the reference Mexican-American when in fact if they are true Americans, it should be American of Mexican or Hispanic heritage. I don't know about most readers and bloggers but I am American first and foremost. Where my ancestors came from should have no bearing on my American heritage. 2 weeks ago

The real racists who do the most racial profiling are those so called minority organizations such as La Raza, LULAC, MECHA, Congression Hispanic Caucus, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, etc. If a single White individual attempted to create a comparable Anglo organization, these people would be screaming bloody murder about racial discrimination.
I suppose the laws according to the Hispanic activists should be rewritten to preclude any Hispanic from being stopped or questioned regardless of the situation. By the way, since Hispanics actually come in all shades of color, how is law enforcement to know who is who?2 weeks ago
Our military and particularly our wounded warriors should not have to depend on private support organizations. Instead, our congress and the president should be shouldering the burden to provide the necessary support.
Sadly, the Veterans Administration is a joke, not because of the rank and file employee but because of bungling mismanagement by the top echelon who are determined to protect their status.
Phoenix is a prime example. We really need more than one VA hospital to cover the workload. I am fortunate in that I can use Medicare and my secondary insurance rather than to have to drive 30 miles for an X-ray or to see a specialist. The VA has even stooped so low as to demand its doctors do most of their patient visits by telephone. I am Agent Orange related diabetic and I can get better care from my private physician. While my VA primary care provider is a caring person, it is physically impossible to get much done in the allocated 15 minutes face time or telephonically.
I was talking to one gentleman a couple of years ago who had to come all the way from Kingman for heart surgery. It would have been much cheaper to have paid for his treatment at a civilian hospital.3 weeks ago
Mike McClellan: I will retract my statement about Jonathan and I salute him for his service but I challenge you to produce specific examples of illegals serving in the military who do did not use the identity of legal American citizens. Every enlistee must undergo a background check upon enlistment to include a NACI and if selected for assignments requiring a security clearance, the service or the FBI delves even deeper. Since you have such insight, feed us the details on the number of them who served as well as their branch of service. Maybe you are confusing them with legal green card holders since illegals are forbidden by law from serving even if they want to.
For your information, I served for over 20 years active and then worked for the Department of Defense supporting our war fighters for another 25 years. I held clearances from secret through top secret. I can honestly say I never ran across an illegal serving in the military during my time.3 weeks ago
BU: You have a sick opinion of the world. Wishing pregnancy and an STD upon a girl or even a boy is exactly what we could expect of the American Taliban. Teens have been following the laws of nature since time began and I doubt if it is going to cease in the future. As long as they are subject to raging hormones some of them are going to fall to temptation but to attempt to apply some religious logic that not everyone subscribes to is ridiculous. Personally, I will stick to the secular world.3 weeks ago
I would much rather that the girl have access to the pill than to see her seeking a backdoor abortion, possibly endangering her life.3 weeks ago
Jonathan certainly has not served in the military or he would know that background checks are required. the only instance I can recall of is where an illegal used a legal cousin's identity to join the navy. he was later found out to be illegal when he committed a crime and was imprisoned. He was subsequently deported.3 weeks ago
While I certainly support it, just when are Anglos going to get their own recognition? We would be crucified if we proposed a National Organization of Anglo Veterans, National Anglo Education and Defense Fund, etc. Sadly, rather than pushing for national unity, we are being splintered into special interest groups. 3 weeks ago
