Another friendly rant

Living on the border for as long as I have I have noticed a drastic change.
Ever since 9-11 law enforcement has gotten out of hand down here. The main perp's are Border Patrol. Now don't take this the wrong way I have many friend's that are Border Patrol agents. And I greatly appreciate the service they preform for our great country. The problem is they treat almost everyone as if they are terrorist's or criminal's especially at the check point's along the highway's. Asking questions like were are you going, were are you coming from, and what are you doing out on this highway ect. ect. But since they have become Dept. of homeland sec. they have let the power go to there head. Legally they are only allowed to ask you three question's. 1 are you an American citizen. 2 are you carrying any illegal alien's. 3 are you carrying any contraband. ie drug's and illegal weapons. And the problem is only multiplied when you get some young kid fresh out of training that has to quote " Show there authority " .
Now I don't know about you but I take offence to this. I can trace my family line back to relatives that fought in our war for Independence. And some young trainee that can barley speak English has the ball's to question me on being an American citizen!
If things in our great country continue to follow this path what is next government camera's in our own homes, and the loss of all of our freedom's. Everybody has the right to there own opinion which is what makes this country so great. And in my opinion we are in danger of losing that too.

This is great news! I'm glad to here that they are setting up check points. Now if can just move them to the border where they can slow the tide some.

Yep, especially since none of that has anything to do with actually interdicting smugglers or illegal aliens.

You don't need to build a fence or anything else - you just need to eliminate all the benefits and the problem will solve itself.

Carlos Mancia (comidian) said it best....................Hire thousands of these illegal imigrants to build a HUGE fence and tell them.........It looks great from this side what about from over on the Mexican side? Let them all run over there and shut the gates.
