Holy, Hannah!  This just sounds horrble.  While I get that people should respect the laws, just opening fire on someone making a break for the border like this blows my mind.  What I think about is even knowing that is a possibilty, what kinds of lives are they trying to escape?

If you really want to know how illegal immigration can destroy a country just ask a Native American. :P

The first question that popped into my mind when I read the original article was, "How could they tell it was illegal aliens from up in a helicopter?"

yep,  and the first thing that popped into my head is...  ya don't shoot SUSPECTS !?!?!?!?

From the article:

Officials in Texas announced on Thursday that State Troopers would no longer be allowed to open fire on suspects from helicopters after the recent killing of two immigrants.


   second thing  that popped into my head was....   what are they doing shooting IMMIGRANTS ?   (  did they mean Illegal immigrants?  and if so , when didi illegal immigration become a shoot and KILL on sight offense ? )

'cause they're wet.

I wonder how long it was before the Visigoths realized they could steal or destroy what the Romans had, but could not reproduce it once the Romans were gone?  America is/was wealthy because of many ideas and a cohesion of beliefs.  Once that is broken then the magic is lost.  Who knows?  Maybe these immigrants will take the existing resources and make a better America for themselves in future - but I think it unlikely.  Too many have come like carrion.  Not enough who want to build.
Many ideas, yes.  Not a cohesion of beliefs, a diversity of beliefs.  We're never going to discover anything unless we avoid thinking like Br's where we refuse to speculate and just stick with what's already been figured out for us by someone else.   That might be a good idea for the dumbed down masses but it's a terrible idea for staying ahead in the world.   I believe there's more to life than meets the eye.  I believe there's a solution to every problem.   I believe that life has meaning.  I believe in you.  I believe.  There's tremendous power in belief, and there's tremendous lethargy in the lack of it.

Maybe Texas will still shoot suspects from the beds of their rolling pickup trucks?  Works well enough on 'The Walking Dead' and besides, I'd suspect injured people walking with a gimp in their leg for being zombies too.

Rather disturbing that they needed to make this ruling in the first place.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

That isn't even funny, just offensive.  And for educational purposes wet backs was a term first applied to Americans immigrating accross the Rio Grande into Mexico.

Ah yes, the venerable A-10 Thunderbolt (aka Warthog).
