    Ahhh… now the question is just how bad is this ‘spill’ and what’s the current ‘rate’ of contamination?

    Nature abhors a vacuum, and the oil spill certainly proves that- both containing oil and migrants is both a human created “problem”.

    Hire some aliens to police the border. They know the tricks and work cheap.

    The things is President Obama is apparently about to do what John McCain is suggesting.

    I also heard ( Can’t confirm this ) that he’s planning to ask Congress for $50 Billion to ‘secure the border’.

    No $50 million And the troops are just a dog and pony show only there to prevent arms smuggling into mexico.

    Well they aren’t fighting in a war, Obama promised to stop all wars. Troops could be working on getting that leak completely stopped.

    I am not sure if I understand what Benson’s point is here. I do know that all this talk of National Guard on the border is just trash talk from both sides. There are just so many desk jobs in the border patrol and beyond that more troops will do nothing to solve the immigration problem.

    which is the entire point.

    “Boy HOwdy, the people are angry and want you to DO someting, Barry!”

    “uhhhh, ok ok uhhhhh let’s send uhhhh some troops so we look proactive .”

    “But, Barry, you know that US Troops can’t do police work, That’s unconstitutional .”

    “right right, that’s the point. Uhhh we look GOOD, we don’t STOP anything and the crisis is still there to exploit.”

    “Genius, Barry, pure Genuis.”

    Obama’s action actually has a chance of working. 1200 members of the National Guard are being assigned. Their mission? To gather information on gangs of criminals operating in Mexico and the USA. The objective: to stop smuggling of drugs and people into the USA; and to stop smuggling of weapons and money into Mexico.

    ^Let me know when they find all the tunnels leading them here.

    Ah, a little VX or mustard agent in those tunnels should fix things right up, if we REALLY want to get serious. Also STOP groups on this side stocking water, and the “Minutemen” who tend to be a day late and dollar short on intellect.

    If previous folks hadn’t cut back on Border Patrol it might have helped. Leave border area “designated wilderness” wilderness, and let the predator drones take out any ATV, Jeep, van or illegal motor vehicle in the closed areas. NO NEED to leave tracks on the ground, just leave ‘em to burn out, and the coyotes and ants will finish off the contents. How stoned will ants get on coke? Pot doesn’t bother them at all.

    We can use simple vehicle closures, with REALLY STRICT enforcement to stop smuggling.

    Let’s play like Israel, North Korea, and the former Soviet bloc– the Arizona law IS the first step!
