Can We Borrow Your Border Guards?





TEL AVIV—Violence along the border between Syria and the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights escalated and claimed casualties on Sunday, as Israeli soldiers opened fire on demonstrators in two locations who sought to march across the frontier on the anniversary of the outbreak of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

Syria's state news agency said 20 people were killed and more than 280 were injured in the Israeli attack on Syrians and Palestinians, who were demonstrating the "undaunted will of the youths' commitment to resistance and determination to return to their occupied lands."

Israeli forces open fire on protesters at the Golan Heights border, where a pro-Palestinian demonstration had gathered to commemorate "Naksa" day, the 44th anniversary of the start of the 1967 Middle East War.

Israeli officials said Damascus allowed the protesters to reach the border to distract attention from its repression of weekslong antiregime protests. Israeli officials also said Lebanese authorities avoided a flareup by declaring the border a closed military zone.

Just for a few weeks. We know just the place where they're needed.

So just what did they do with the illegals who snuck into Israel and found jobs???

Chris - it works a lot better than the "random" senseless nonsense now in use. And for Bailey, you're very welcome.

BigVic - I'm not sure of the context of your question. These illegals were not "sneaking" into Israel to seek employment. They were just another attempt by Muslim fascists to destablize Israel. It goes hand in glove with the bombings and rocket attacks.

As far as this country, there are 12 to 14 million illegals in this country estimated to cost the US taxpayer payer billions and billions. That is not a "sneak." That is an invasion.

■$11 billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments.
■Illegal households only pay about one-third the amount of federal taxes that non-illegal households pay.
■Illegal households create a net fiscal deficit at the federal level of more than $10 billion a year. If given amnesty, this number could grow to more than $29 billion.
■$1.9 billion dollars a year is spent on food-assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC and free school lunches for illegal aliens.
■$1.6 billion is spent on the federal prison and court system for illegal aliens.
■$2.5 billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
■About 21 percent of the population of U.S. prisons is classified as “noncitizens” from Mexico, Colombia, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. About 5 percent is listed as “unknown.”

Get the Marines on the border and you will need a fleet of Caterpillar loaders to stack up the buzzard-bait!

This was predicted, but the stupid Muzzloons were supposed to act like peaceful demonstrators.

Theres an old West Virginia Hillbilly saying: Ya can't get the water to clear up until you get the pigs outta the creek.

*If any other of our presidents had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?*

*If any other of our presidents had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved? *

*If any other of our presidents had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head? *

*If any other of our presidents joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who's side he was on? *

*If any other of our presidents had pronounced the Marine Corps like Marine Corpse, would you think him an idiot? *

*If any other of our presidents had put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one foreign company had an accident, would you have agreed? *

*If any other of our presidents had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87,000 American workers unemployed would you support him? *

*If any other of our presidents had been the first President to need a Teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes? *

*If any other of our presidents had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take his First Lady to a play in NYC, would you have approved? *

*If any other of our presidents would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in his home town, would you not have thought he was a self-important, conceited, egotistical jerk. *

*If any other of our presidents had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, wouldn't you have winced in embarrassment? *

*If any other of our presidents had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?*

*If any other of our presidents' administrations had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11? *

*If any other of our presidents had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence? *

*If any other of our presidents had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have ever approved. *

*If any other of our presidents had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved? *

*So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?
*Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 24 months -- so you have that much time to come up with an answer .*

*An' how about all those vacations he & Michelle take constantly, (with a more than a full enterage') paid for by American tax-payers? *
Every statement and action in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

We don't need their guards. Honestly, they are already outnumbered, underfuned (considering their enemies get more in subsidies, they are just too crooked to use that for arms or something), and against it in world wide politics. It would be cruel to take from those who need.

All we need is the license to defend. I would gladly volunteer my time and take some risk on our borders. If the government would remove the National guard, leave their equipment, add some money (they would be saving this way) for ammunition and spare parts, and let volunteers hold the borders, there would be no problem. I wouldn't even need a twin fifty, a simply fifty or even thirty would do just fine. About the only thing I would ask for is air support, as I think the cartels actually would have us otherwise. A year or two and truck loads of mistaken criminals later, the deal would be done.

Of course, with that, I would like to see reforms so that applicants could come to America to work. Not with the wife and kids, not with any hopes of staying, merely with the prospect of digging, picking, and a few other things and then back home when the idea of family life seemed more pressing or the jobs were done. We need to know who is entering, where they are, that they have a job waiting (or put them in touch with employers), and that they leave when it is time. Ending minimum wage, ending most social services, cracking down hard on employers who hire illegals, and disallowing care, schooling, or anything else without documentation would go along way toward that end. But it would also hugely increase the cost of humble meats and vegetables, among other things. Take your pick, I guess. But don't expect much.

I think Vox Day has it though. The reason illegals are being allowed is because without crossing work labor, free trade doesn't work. So, if you are for free trade, in truth, you have to be for open boarders. Just... some thoughts.

Oswald - I don't think the Messicans will prove as troublesome as the Musalems. There's something about Allah and Mohammed that turns off the higher brain functions which alerts you to gunfire and death.
