    The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.

    Thinking back,the Drug Cartels are employing the same tactics as the Vietcong.They need to be handled the same way we did.When we found them taking prisoners was not an option unless we needed INTEL.

    I only have one question, what happened to our once mighty nation? As a veteran of the Viet Nam war I myself did not put ass on the line for the gov. TO hand over this country to foringers that don't even belong here. These people are destroying our nation by taking our jobs, useing benefits they havn't earned, this country is a disgrase. We the people didn't cause this mess, but I bet most Americans would be glad to escort these leaches back across the border since the gov won't.. By force if nessary, that is before the gov outlaws guns for us citizens. Where I live you can't swing adead cat without hitting 200 wetbacks.. It's disgusting and makes me sick. For Godsakes close the borders and start evicting these maggots of socity... From a Disgusted American Veteran!!!

    @ Helenhull i agree with you 100% i think arazona had it right. i wanna see some green cards and if you dont have it the boarder jumpers must be evicted. no getting married and having kids to stay here either. if we could close our boarder and get rid of all the immagrents that are already here our welfare, unemployment rates, and food stamps would drop to the all time low. many "american citizens" would actually be able to get jobs and the college education that they deserve.
