    An American Marine veteran is being held in Mexico on trumped up charges. Obamma and the State Department are silent.

    In light of the Administration's inaction I suggest the following to resolve the problem:

    1. We trade 12 million illegals to Mexico for the Marine.

    2. If they don't want the 12 million illegals back we send them back unless they send the Marine home!

    As alternatives I suggest:

    1, The Administration suspend foreign aid.

    2. American tourists boycott Mexico. Now that would get their attention. But what American would give up a trip to Mexico [Cancun or Acapulco] to help a veteran?

    The Whitehouse press secretary, when asked about it yesterday by the press corps, knew nothing about it.

    That's not surprising. If it doesn't fit their agenda they ignore it.

    This Marine shouldn't have taken a gun into Mexico.

    That is not the facts. Maybe you should read up on this before speaking on it.

    The US government shipped thousands into Mexico, and lied about it, and are still lying about it.

    He checked with the American consulate before entering and was assured it was legal. When he arrived in Mexico he promptly went to register it lawfully. The issue is over 2 inches of the barrel.

    And possibly his refusal to put a little money in the right place. If the American people would tell their travel agents to cancel plans to visit Mexico during the Holidays we would see some action. Or if Obamma ever thought of anyone other than himself we would see some action. I noticed Krauthammer, a psychiatrist, referred to Obamma's narcissism tonight.

    Those are fairly easy suggestions OR.....there are a more than a few Marines that would gladly initiate more assertive solutions.

    The efforts of Obamma and Hillary to secure the release of this Marine stir one's patriotic soul!

    If Reagan were still around as Prez, this guy would have been out long ago either by diplomacy or by USMC.
