During the 2004 campaign I spent a few months working for General Clark after reading his book "Waging Modern War"

That said, counting on a military guy to cut spending is barking up the wrong tree.

I'm an independent because both parties are deplorable. If there is a good candidate, I vote for them. We need more real men and women running for office and a lot less career politicians. The only thing I miss is voting in the primaries which seems to be verboten for anyone not registered to a major party here in the northeast.

I hope you all saved your WIN (whip inflation now) buttons because I think we will need them.

All the rich damn Republicans have the stokers. Is that fair?

Interesting article on operation *censored*, which I confess I am not quite old enough to remember.
http://www.csmonitor.com/2006/0706/p09s01-coop.html
The article describes widespread corruption within the Southwestern US, where farmers liked the illegal Mexicans because they worked cheap, and both state and federal law enforcement were largely in the pockets of the wealthy agricultural interests and their bought-and-paid-for political friends. It's hard to tell from this description whether Ike truly objected to the migrant farm workers, or whether his principle concern was to re-establish the authority of law over U.S. citizens. Regardless, when you think of how freely people moved back and forth over the border, you have to wonder what the two countries would look like today, if restrictions had been eased 60 years ago rather than tightened. Would Mexico have developed much differently? Would it be, for all practical purposes, another rich state like Texas? Or would it still be the same big drug-financed criminal enterprise that it is now?

Mexico has always been run by bandits from the days of the conquest till today.
