No, we get pissed that another life was wasted in this useless, stupid, insane 'war'.

At this point, seeing all your post, this is the tipping point. BTW, enjoy the Romney loss.

ComicBookGuy: bucket_pup: And how soon will the Democratic Nutjobs© blame this on God, guns, the bible, or find a slight tie-in to the Tea Party?


// 30 seconds or less is my guess.

How quickly do you think you get on my ignore list after I post this response, white trash?


White trash? Stop being such a racist.

I prefer that in the original Stasi Öst Berliner German. Their wall was much more water proof. 

Actually in Texas I continually ask my Border Patrol relatives why they aren't guarding our northern and eastern border where the shiat seems to leak in.  They just mumble something about government policy.

Why are Conservatives so upset about Fast & Furious?

They have repeatedly told me that guns don't kill people, PEOPLE kill people. So the source of the firearm is irrelevant since the person holding it is responsible. If you are now so concerned about the guns causing problems, then it is the Conservatives that hate the 2nd amendment now.

So you are finally admitting that 0bama was responsible for the fast and furious debacle. Good for you.



I believe that you believe that Obama is responsible, but the House investigation found that he isn't.

Univision's Investigative Unit (Univision Investiga) has identified massacres committed using guns from the ATF operation, including the killing of 16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juárez in January of 2010.

Grapple: FTA: "The injured agent was airlifted to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. The injured agent was shot in the ankle and buttocks, the Department of Homeland Security said."

Hehe. airlifted for getting shot in the buttocks.


Yeah, a public servant is shot while a friend and co-worker is murdered, with injuries that can affect his quality of life and mobility, and the closest trauma center is 80+ miles away through the desert and mountains. LAUGH IT UP.

vegasj: James!: How come Arizona is a war zone but California, Texas and New Mexico aren't?

The Border patrol isn't run by the State, it's federal.  Texas has more empty land and California has more people near the border, but Arizona is the problem child for some reason. 
 
This is a serious question for me, what if Arizona doing wrong that those other states are doing right?
 
2012-10-02 10:34:47 AM
I think we should fix the border, but we should do it in conjunction with easing/fixing immigration laws. The immigration laws in this country make no damn sense. I know someone who's whole family migrated to the US when she was under 5. Due to an error the rest of her family was legal but she wasn't. It wasn't fixed till she was 27!

fickenchucker: Laugh it up, non-Arizona residents.

We have friends and relatives in Tucson who are scared shiatless about the encroaching crime. Nogales is under siege financially because of the lost tourism resulting from the insanely-increased crime rates.

America deserves better from all the politicians and a DMZ at our southern border.


I got out of my old neighborhood after 4 murders. I understand most illegals are just here to earn money to send home. But I get a little tired of idiots who smoke Mexican weed telling me I should be willing to live next door to that percentage of illegals who are extremely violent and have to keep robbing and burglarizing to be good earners.

Legal status should be a filter. That's what it's designed to do.

Keep voting in Sheriff Joe. You brought this upon yourselves.


Not to mention the fact that you're an idiot for talking about a Sheriff that is HOURS away from Bisbee and Tucson, but how exactly is a Sheriff that is TOUGH on crime and immigration "bringing it upon himself"?

I just want to hear this logic, because I could use the laugh, I've had a tiresome morning.

This wouldn't be a problem if we threw out all the Mexicans and adopted a shoot-to-kill policy for anyone who approaches our borders

Satanic_Hamster: So how long till Obama is blamed?

And better yet, how long till Romney weighs in on this?

I give it two hours and six, respectively.


Seeing as Fox News website's story is 3 paragraphs about the actual event closed out with 2 paragraphs about Brian Terry and 'Fast and Furious', pretty much immediately.
Maybe justifiably so.

Put the US Army on the border.
Let them provide some actual national defense.

As a huge supporter of the 2nd Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms, I'm also a huge proponent of common sense laws like background checks, keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, keeping them away from kids, requiring background checks at gun shows, etc. Not all of us are Ted Nugent-esque assholes who walk around with boners because we're carrying a pistol. I'd be willing to bet there are many, many more gun owners like me, than there are those that fit your tiny brain's stereotype.

If a gun store illegally gave guns to criminals, I would expect that gun store to be shut down, and the owners prosecuted. I ask nothing less of the folks that knowingly gave guns to criminals across the border. Sorry they happen to belong to your party, but they should be out of a job, and in some cases, they belong in prison.

James!: "Are we going to have a news flash every time a police officer is shot or do we only care about border patrol officers?"

Only shootings that can be fashioned into political footballs.
In that way, this news flash is useful. It's like an early warning system for political derpstorms.

James!: This is a serious question for me, what if Arizona doing wrong that those other states are doing right?


More people on the border in Texas and California and more people on both sides that rely on business along the border, so they have incentive to prevent the trafficking. Arizona is much more open, less populated, and easier to make the drug transfers. Drug cartels mean violence and attacks like these.

He's not tough on crime. He's really tough on non-violent criminals, because it lets him look tough without having to risk anything besides the tremendous amount of taxpayer money he loses in civil rights lawsuits. He's a national embarrassment, much like the constituency who keep voting him in.

Solution: Sell Arizona back to Mexico.

Dinki: James!: Are we going to have a news flash every time a police officer is shot or do we only care about border patrol officers?

Well obviously it's not news when a cop is shot- they have a dangerous job. Border patrol officers are sort of like meter maids, their job is supposed to be super duper safe.


You are really misinformed. My brother in law was border patrol. It is not a safe job at all. People try to stab them, shoot them, run over them and throw rocks at them......big ones. There have been shootouts even at the main border crossing. The officers have to arrest people and testify in court against them. Drug cartels, individual dealers, or the families of those arrested can put out hits on the officers or their families. That is why my brother in law quit and went into the healthcare field. He was having a day out with his family and someone he had testified against came up to him in a restaurant and started some shiat. BIL realized that having a low paying job wasn't worth putting the lives of his children in danger.
