  1. I was in Acuna Coahuila today and it was mostly normal, bars/restaurants closed, but people out and around and no one asked me anything about why I was there or where I was going when I crossed.
  2. I'm late to the topic, but yes, we still fish etc up there in TX. I was by the Lake today and there were at least a dozen bass boat trailers in the launch parking area. Yesterday I was in Lowes, Home Depot and Autozone, they were glad to see me (or my money). Last week I saw a flight of pelicans spending a bit of time on the Lake before heading on N to Alberta. Life goes on. In my county which is 966 sq miles with 22K people we have 3 reported cases, we don't see the problem.
  3. RV nails this one, at our age, ALL the hours count. Who cares about sunny or cloudy?
  4. Yes, it's no longer a NOB thing, it's coming to your town. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/08/20/report-dnc-chair-tom-perez-to-fundraise-in-mexico/
  5. That has got to be the dumbest scam I've seen in years, absolutely NO WAY it will ever do that, it goes in the museum with the X-Ray glasses when we were kids etc.
  6. Nope, June 12th, just like always. I know because that's when we start to dry up?
  7. Well? - attempting to sort out your dissociated comments, bringing Canada in as an unrelated country to this subject, I will tell you that all the touchy feely emotions are rendered irrelevant because the US, America (if you will), is a country and society of laws, and the plain, unabashed fact undisputed by any legal authority, is that crossing into the US illegally is a crime. All the smooze, touchy feely emotions etc is a mask to cover the reality of that fact that there is essentially an "invasion" of illegals into the US - which is increasing in an attempt to swamp, overcome if you will, the border security. NOTE: On a specific note, Frum was attached to the Bush administration - not really a proforma validation of Conservatism, maybe a member of the Republican establishment, but not Conservatism I can assure you. PS: Here's something most folks don't know, the legal immigration system in the US was mostly shut down from the mid 20's until the early 60's - for one simple reason, to allow assimilation of incoming non-Americans. I assume you live in MX, I lived there, let me assure you the current "crop of immigrants" has little or no interest in assimilating into the American culture. They are there, by their own admissions, to access a "better life" etc. In other words, they seek the easy life, the milk, the gold and are unwilling to follow the previous generations path that came to America to find those same things, but learned the language, that assimilated into the American culture and knew that doing so causes a rising tide that floats all boats including their children and prodigy.
  8. Often a divergent point of view allows a person to arrive at the truth, especially when those divergent views appear to come to the same conclusions. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/05/us/crossing-the-border-statistics.html Or https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/us-has-hit-breaking-point-at-border-amid-immigration-surge-customs-and-border-protection-commissioner-says/2019/03/27/d2014068-5093-11e9-af35-1fb9615010d7_story.html?utm_term=.3fdf18e5da00 I presume these sources are acceptable.
  9. None so blind as those who will not see, nor so deaf as those who will not hear. Often the truth is shocking.
  10. Maybe, or maybe not? https://www.breitbart.com/border/2019/04/30/video-111-central-american-migrants-cross-arizona-border/
  11. I didn't get the memo, what is the official age of Prune-juicers? I just rolled over 76 last week, do I qualify?
  12. Yeah, I was a world class genius at age 15 also - look at how I turned out.
  13. Ah, of course, silly me, Pangloss being a fictional character means that "climate change" is also from the fictional world - now it makes perfect sense, thanks.
  14. Ok Angus, my question is the same, who determines that this "climate" is exactly perfect at this moment in time and it shouldn't be changed?
  15. I've watched from a distance (about 1K miles) where the wind chill was 13F degrees this morning. As I observe these discussions I always wonder why it begins with the automatic assumption that at this moment in time the temperature is perfect, it shouldn't be allowed to go up/down? Who gets to determine that and demand that everyone else fall in line and believe - exactly who is that?
