    Oh no this can't be happening. The border is safer since Obama came in than it ever has been.

    Oh, ya, forgot that, this story must be a right wing lie :) I've read that the cartels are running 100 miles inside the border.

    . . . . . and the economy is doing great too! I don't know about non-border states but here in California we hear more in the news about drug violence at the border than we ever used to.

    Look at the bright side...

    At least they're not using the guns Obama furnished them to cut off their heades. :thumbs:

    We never hear about anything on the boarder unless I run across it online. Our news is so washed it is squeaky clean. The local stations don't know what journalism is. One of the talk show hosts mentioned with all the snow predicted there were more reporters on the street than snowflakes.

    We go two days of snow news, then a day of rain news and now we are n the local flooding/landslide news. Monday they had one short nonweather related story in the 1/2 hour show.

    News used to mean north east west south, now no effort wasted snooping!

    In addition to wall to wall weather coverage, at times, we must be kept informed with all the details on Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, and ALL the gossip, sorry, "news" about the Hollywood celebrity types. Let one of them get a hangnail and we've got to hear about it for days.

    No news is no news

    The main point of this story should be that it was NOT reported in any of my newspapers or on the major networks or on any of the NPR stations or . . . .

    Americans are the most ignorant, ill informed, don't give a hoot, back woods people in the entire world. An you all think it matters who is elected the president. You gots to be kidding!!!!!!!

    That almost offended me. I tried to be offended. I just couldn't get past the concept of someone who can't string a proper sentence together having the nerve to say I'm ignorant.

    Perhaps if you corrected it and changed your own citizenship to another country, the insult would work better.

    Please give both a try. I like a good insult on occasion!

    right back at ya

    Shalom.

    (is it just me or does "vobiscum" sounds like it should be the root word for the spittle of scum?)

    I just set myself up for a good insult based on what I said, when mixed with the translation.

    I promise not to be mad at anyone who takes up on it. :laugh:

    I shouldn't expect anyone on BB to understand anything that is not mentioned in the KJV, the Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, or the Republican Party platform.

    Ummm, yeah. That's why I responded with "Shalom."

    Bill, Bill, Bill. I handed you that one on a golden platter. If you put together the roots, you could have responded with "what you say is spittle of scum is actually you."

    It would have been punny.

    I'm trying to help you here. You gotta work with me though!
