Why I'm a Minuteman.

Phyllis Schlafly wants to know “Is A War Going On In Texas?
If you don't have access to Texas newspapers or the internet, you may not have heard the sensational news about the enormous cache of weapons just seized in Laredo, Texas. U.S. authorities grabbed two completed Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), materials for making 33 more, military-style grenades, 26 grenade triggers, large quantities of AK-47 and AR-15 assault rifles, 1,280 rounds of ammunition, silencers, machine gun assembly kits, 300 primers, bullet-proof vests, police scanners, sniper scopes, narcotics, and cash.
That sounds like a war is going on in Texas! If bomb-making factories and firearms assembly plants are ordinary day-to-day business in the drug war along our southern border, the American people need to know more about it.
The Val Verde County chief deputy warned that drug traffickers are helping terrorists with possible al Quaeda ties to cross the Texas-Mexico border into the United States. A government spokesman in Houston said "at this point there is no connection with anything in Iraq."
We are not so easily reassured. We wonder what our government is doing to fulfill its duty to "protect each of them [the states] against invasion," as called for in the U.S. Constitution, Article IV.
The Department of Homeland Security now admits that there have been 231 documented incursions by Mexican military or police, or drug or people smugglers dressed in military uniforms, during the last ten years, including 63 in Arizona, and several Border Patrol agents have been wounded in these encounters. This admission comes after years of pretending that such incursions were just "accidents."

Interesting! Don't people realize it's all conected?

Kind of makes you wonder if Republicans have joined Democrats in placing global warming and "social justice" ahead of reality.

By the way, am I the only one who's been having trouble with work verification?

You may find this interesting. the articles i have been seeing are all in Spanish, but this blog is in English and everyone is discussing it.

An intriguing tale of Venezuela/Iran/Argentina triangulating the purchase of a nuclear reactor for Iran.

This is very important information and blogs seem to be the only news source about the infiltration of terrorists and their weapons through the southern border.

I wonder if NAFTA and businesses investment in it has anything to do with the troubling silence surrounding this subject.

I have tried to trackback to you, but bligger is being fickle. I interviewed Chris Simcox SPECIFICALLY IN YOUR HONOR. Go see...March 5th post, MINUTEMAN SIMCOX SUGGESTS FIRST AMENDMENT BASED INCOME TAX PROTEST.

I dedicated it to you at the bottom.

Wow, thanks Jane. Saw your post but I'm not messing with the IRS, lol.

That is the sad part, Rancher. They have US by the SSN choke chain, so it WOULD be easier to bring us to our knees. WHat do hey have? A lousy blind Bank of America card? Hardly the same risk, so I TOTALLY SEE and agree with your point.
