While browsing the Washington Times this morning, I came across this nugget of joy:
Five armed Mexicans, with AK-47s, were 12 miles north of the US/MX border, hunting for Border Patrol Agents. First off, this represents an armed intrusion of our country, and no one says a peep about the porous border where this is happening, yet it continues. The Federal government's responsibility lies here:
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
That is from Section 8, Powers of Congress. It appears that the morons up in DC are falling down on the job, and when the individual states make laws to take up where the Feds should be doing the job, they get *sued* by DOJ.
Back to the first part of this post...so these Mexicans representing an armed incursion into another sovereign nation, went & had a firefight with the Border Patrol agents. At least two of them had their rifles at the ready position, and patrolling the area, where they encountered four Border Patrol agents - who identified themselves as such in Spanish, and opened fire on them, killing one - Brian A. Terry, who had been a Marine. I'll give you three guesses what the Border Patrol fired at the armed men...and it will shock you - BEANBAGS! Yep. We're arming our Border Patrol with beanbags.
After shooting beanbags, and Terry was dying, they *amazingly enough* thought to switch to bullets, shooting one of the men in the abdomen and the leg. (only one? I'd shoot, and keep shooting until all were down, but the other 4 ran away).
The guy indicted for the murder of the BP Agent, Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, was originally just charged with illegal entry - but then that was thrown out, and 2nd degree murder charges were preferred.
The Washington Times has this interesting bit:
The indictment also noted that Osorio-Arellanes had been convicted in Phoenix in 2006 of felony aggravated assault, had been detained twice in 2010 as an illegal immigrant, and had been returned to Mexico repeatedly.
The case has been sealed, including the judge's reason for sealing the case.
Oh, by the way, remember the Fast & Furious fiasco? Two of the AK-47s found at the scene were from that operation.
Eric Holder should be held liable for any and all deaths involving guns in that 'operation'.
By the way, if you use Kaboom cleanser, that stuff that sprays blue & turns white - wear protective eyewear that totally seals off your eyes. It will mess up your eyes, just being in proximity to the spray. This is found out from experience yesterday. I now have a blister on my eyeball :| and it feels really funny. And I wasn't even that close to the stuff, but spraying the tub and surround, evidently some of it gets around in the air, and will attack your eyes.
The Muppets comes out at the theaters today, we're heading to see a movie later!
