In Topic: House wants to send troops to Central America to secure border.

Today, 06:24 AM

To be honest, I'm not real sure. It's not unlike the civil unrest in many parts of Africa where refugees are streaming across the borders by the thousands to escape the civil wars and almost genocidal crap going on there. Perhaps if we, as a country, approached this as a humanitarian crisis and not necessarily and "illegal aliens are storming our borders to take our jobs and cost us money" crisis, we might have some different solutions.

 

Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world and consistently since the 1950's it has been 5-8 times higher than Europe and Asia, which may not sound like much, but the population is only 8.2M.

 

As a matter of fact, the ominous Top 10 list of highest murder rates in the world:

1. Honduras

2. Venezuela

3. Belize

4. El Salvador

5. Guatemala 

 

And it's no coincidence the people seeking refuge in this country are from those countries, the vast majority being from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.  

 

We certainly have better resources now than we had in the earlier part of the 20th century when Ellis Island was processing immigrants by the thousands. Do people even realize Ellis Island processed nearly 10.5M immigrants during its relatively short life span? And most of those refugees were fleeing Europe prior to WWI and WWII, not unlike the circumstances people are fleeing the central American countries.

They asked Gunny what a Drill Instructor would say and that's what came out. And before you guys think that's what Marine boot camp is it's not. There's actually 3-4 Hartman's running around

Yeah... not so much anymore. I have a nephew who is a Marine Recruiter and he says they've become a kinder, gentler Marine Corps in boot camp. A lot of the stuff in the movie would be considered way over the line now and the 21st century drill instructor has to be more of a leader and teacher than anything.

Or just come in the legal way

Jay-z made a song about the death of autotune and all of sudden everyone became too cool for it.

 

Aren't half the people he produces using auto-tune?


In Topic: Arizona Man Dies 2 Hours Into His Execution

Yesterday, 07:47 PM

I served for 20 years, so I know a little about military actions. And I'm not against the death penalty, I simply believe the method of carrying out an execution needs to be final and certain.
