Pretend Fence for Pretend Illegals


Senators Eye 'Virtual,' Not Real Border Wall

WASHINGTON -- Senators writing an immigration reform bill are debating whether an actual or "virtual" fence should be built along parts of the U.S.-Mexico border.

Republicans are split on a proposal for a "virtual" fence, using cameras and other technology to monitor illegal traffic. Some want more real fences or walls for long stretches of the line.

Last year, the House passed a measure calling for hundreds of miles of fencing at heavily trafficked areas on the southwestern border and study of a possible fence along the Canadian border.

While discussion about a wall or fence continues, a Senate committee Thursday voted to increase the number of Border Patrol agents, but how many they agreed to add was uncertain.

Senators left a Judiciary Committee hearing with different totals on new agents they want hired. Their figures ranged from 2,000 and 2,400 a year to 10,800 over five years and 12,000 in just two years.

Virtual fencing?

Great....we'll be safe from 'virtual' illegals.

Old Post Remembered

Here's something I wrote a year ago that had me howling at describing the results of a quiz in school:

Anyway....I think I did decently on it, but considering the vast amount of puzzled looks on the rest of the students in the lecture hall I take a little comfort in knowing that the bell curve for this quiz was nuked....twice.

I asked one guy coming out of the lecture hall as I was if he 'kicked ass or got his ass kicked'. He replied: I got raped.

Yup - the bell curve was nuked and then sprayed with machine-gun fire afterwards for good measure.....

Big NOTE: I am in no way touting my writing skills as being worthy of a Pulitzer - just howlling/giggling my ass off at my ability to describe how I felt after a hard quiz.

This is one of the many things that I really missed while I was in the hospital and stranded with no Internet:

Ever-so-politely glommed from John Bergstrom's Attack Cartoons

Thanks again to xardoz for the Paypal link on 'Attack Cartoons'.....it really means a lot to see the support I'm getting from everyone.

Someone Finally Acts

Ariz. Governor Orders Troops to Border

Gov. Janet Napolitano on Wednesday ordered more National Guardsmen posted at the Mexican border to help stop illegal immigrants and curb related crimes.

National Guard troops have worked at the border since 1988, but Napolitano signed an order authorizing commanders to station an unspecified number of additional soldiers there to help federal agents.

Once the funding is approved, the troops will monitor crossing points, assist with cargo inspection and operate surveillance cameras, according to the order.

"They are not there to militarize the border," the governor said. "We are not at war with Mexico."

About 170 National Guardsmen are already posted at the nation's busiest illegal entry point, where they assist with communications, fence construction and anti-drug efforts.

Napolitano did not say how many additional troops would be stationed at the border and referred questions to the National Guard, which did not immediately return a call

When I initially read the headline, I thought Cool!! M-1 Abrhams tanks along the border!!

Then I read the story and saw that it was just beefing up the crossing points, etc.

Still think they should dig a trench and fill it with gasoline.....

I'm Back (Part II)

During my time in the ICU while in a coma, the medicals staff had a plethora of machines wired to me......

.....so many, that even my little girl got in on the humor flowing around to keep everyone's spirits up. She was reported to have quoted some Monty Python:

"Oh look, it's the machine that goes PING!"

A smart-ass in training if I ever heard that before.....makes me swell with pride!

Going to attempt to make an 'About Mad Mikey' page to explain some of the finer nuances of myself - mainly my monicker so as to make sure that everyone knows that I don't have some 'anger management issues'.

So if you get some screwed up page, it's probably cause I'm in my 'room full of chimps and a typewriter' mindset.

Law Schools Punked

You Harvard punks - now you have to either stop taking Federal funding for your 'special' projects or allow recruiters back on campus:

Supreme Court Upholds College Military Recruiting Law

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that colleges that accept federal money must allow military recruiters on campus, despite university objections to the Pentagon's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays..
