   BaseballFan  "We hear much of special interest groups. Well, our concern must be for a special interest group that has been too long neglected. It knows no sectional boundaries or ethnic and racial divisions, and it crosses political party lines. It is made up of men and women who raise our food, patrol our streets, man our mines and factories, teach our children, keep our homes, and heal us when we're sick—professionals, industrialists, shopkeepers, clerks, cabbies, and truck drivers. They are, in short, "We the people," this breed called Americans."

- President Ronald Reagan, from his First Inaugural Address, January 20, 1981

   Calvinesq  Just had to juxtapose these two articles from Philadelphia Inquirer (i.e., ):

1. Philly's entire congressional delegation is skipping the inauguration — and we're the only big city to do so

AND (most rats/mice in the U.S.!! )

2. Nearly 1 in 5 Philly-area households has mice or rats

The entire congressional delegation (Dems ) to skip the inauguration, but note that Philly also has the most rats/mice of any city in the U.S. - kind of all fits together!!!

   Tulsa  I checked 'suggested viewing, etc.'...last comment was early Nov.

So I'm here...

Anyone watch Designated Survivor late 2016 and want to know who took the bullet? ie., does not wish to wait till March 8, 2017 return to learn the answer?

I know and will tell for a small fee. heh heh heh

   Fireball27  Isn't it illegal to profit from a crime? Can you rob a bank, give the money to your kids, and not have the bank or police do anything about the money? Can you cheat the IRS out of money, use the money to buy houses and cars for your family, and not have the IRS take them after you are caught? If so, how can an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT break the law not only by being here, but using identification theft, and have their children benefit from their crimes? If the parents brought the children here ILLEGALLY, the parents and the kids should be deported. Not the kids' fault, but they should not be able to gain from the parents ILLEGAL actions. The parents are at fault, not the U.S. Government. Feel sorry for the kids, but this has to stop. A swimming pool in your back yard is an "attractive nuisance" and you are held responsible if someone is hurt. A free country is an "attractive nuisance".

When ILLEGALS commit crimes while here and hideout cities aka sanctuary cities, aid them, they should be held accountable. Not the cities, those members of the city government who allow this to happen. A pool accident is one thing, aiding law breakers on purpose, is another thing.

   MeiDei  Reminded me of a scene from the 2003 film "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" as Angelina Jolie and Gerard Butler take off from a high rise in Hong Kong to escape their pursuers. Amazing to see an actual flight zooming through those buildings. Yeah - Cool!

   Fireball27  My suggestion for enhanced border control. Put a bounty out on all attempted border crossings. Anyone who reports a border breach, receives a reward. Lets get a crew of people down there flying their own drones. Imagine the competition to catch these drug mules coming over. Anyone who helps catch drugs coming over gets a nice reward. Low cost border patrolling by people who can use some cash.

   Fireball27  Geez, I just saw an article on WND that terror cells are on the border, waiting to attack our cities. Drug cartels helping them.

   Kono  Can you imagine the liability issues involving untrained, non-deputized volunteers playing sentry with the potential of armed encounters in an area known to have armed and hostile groups? The idea you describe, while having its virtues, sounds unlikely to be endorsed.

   Fireball27  You are right. I thought a high flying drone would show what was happening without the people being close enough to anyone to be in danger. Probably not.

   Safetydude  This is an organization that is already patrolling the border.
(I think, former sheriff, Joe Arpaio was one of their supporters ).

   Varkdriver  To Fireball27:

I happened to be stationed at lovely beautiful Cannon Air Force Base, Clovis New Mexico in the 27th Fighter Wing in the 522nd Tactical Fighter Squadron, aka "The Fireballs". Are/were you a proud Fireball? Cheers, and Happy New Year.

   Fireball27  Hey Varkdriver. Nickname isn't from military. It's an old sports name. Worked as a civilian for Navy in the late 60's at Naval Air Alameda. Worked on A-4's and P-3's. Thank you for your service. Happy New Year to you too.
