Around The Media

Now this is serious, really. This is not like the movie where the teenagers fight off the Russians parachuting into Kansas. A uniformed, heavily armed force is attacking, across our south west border, shooting at U.S. citizens. They have a small air force, flying unchallenged in U.S. air space. They have a small navy (several mini-subs have been stopped by the Coast Guard). They have military hospitals, forgery, counterfeit and language experts. Guess yet? It’s the Mexican drug and human smuggling cartel. Their economy is better than ours right night. The documentary is Boarder (boarder the movie.com). Someone risked their life to film this, we can at least spread the word. Maybe we should have a Department of Homeland Security or something.

Until Next Time

One sure way to fail is to try to please everyone.
