Mexico Turns Away from Drug War
Plans to please citizens (Good for the Goose)
Texas Tribune -- Austin -- January 2   
Policy Shift in Mexico Seen as Push for Sovereignty
Bush signs Secure Fence Act of 2006. It was gutted.
    Security initiatives recently announced by the Mexican government suggest that the country may move to reaffirm its sovereignty and focus less on the interests of the U.S. and other foreign countries, a former assistant special agent at the Department of Homeland Security said.
    David Ramirez, who also worked in Texas as a U.S. Border Patrol agent and later as the director of investigations for Latin America and the Caribbean at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City, said a government's priority should be the safety of its people and stability, and Mexico is no different.
    "I am looking at it as someone who worked the border for 30 years," he said. "As a country, Mexico has to take care of its people and say 'I don't have to please any other country but I have to please my citizens.'" [...]
    Olson [Eric Olson, the associate director of the Mexico Institute of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars] said that U.S. efforts to secure the border will probably remain at their current levels and Mexico's plan wouldn't change that. He said, however, that proponents of tighter border security could use immigration as a bargaining chip when comprehensive reform is debated during the next Congress.
    "There seems to be talk that in exchange for creating a pathway to legalization, either residency or citizenship, there may be more support for more border enforcement, so that might increase" he said.
Red DotAmerican Patrol Report Comment
    Who is Olson trying to kid? The American people have long supported border enforcement over legalization by a 2-1 margin.
    He is pushing the idea that if the government promises border enforcement, we should grant amnesty. Are we going to be fooled again?

New York Times Op Ed: "Let's give up on the Constitution"   
This New York Times Op Ed by Louis Michael Seidman, a constitutional law professor at Georgetown University, is one of the most absurd and dangerous articles I have read in a very long time. This guy's incredible conclusion is that it is the Constitution of the United States itself that is causing all that ails the nation at this time. Not once did I read about the Federal Reserve, or the "war on terror"...

Harry Reid Prepares to annihilate Second Amendment   
"Our Founders intended the Senate to be a body where legislation was slowed down and subject to improvement through extended debate and amendment. [Harry] Reid's proposed 'reforms' would remove two of the most fundamental rights traditionally reserved to all Senators -- to freely debate and amend legislation. I shall not stand for that." -- Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)

U.S. Marine's scathing response to Feinstein's gun control scheme   
Senator Dianne Feinstein, I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government's right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime.

"Oceanside couple" with Mexican sex slave also immigrants...  
The Main Stream Media follows a definite script on immigration. Immigrants are, by definition, good. Therefore, if immigrants have troubles, they must be victims. And if immigrants and native-born Americans have conflict, the native-born Americans must be at fault, probably because of racism and intolerance. -- But what happens when real life doesn't follow the script? Well, in that case, the MSM simply covers up...
