10 Starting late Wednesday, pedestrians going to Tijuana from San Diego at the San Ysidro crossing must choose between a line for Mexicans who get waved through, and a line for foreigners who must show a passport, fill out a form and - if staying more than a week - pay 322 pesos, or roughly $20, for a six-month permit.

But Mexican are still allowed to sneak in to the USA according to Fredo and the Dems.

No sneaking involved, it sounds like. Just waved through! Of course most of those folks are trying to be on time for work, so there's that.

Honestly, though, stories like this don't bother me as much as they probably should.

Everyone knows that you should have medical directives, living wills, and the such in case you are incapacitated and someone needs to make medical decisions for you. This is very important.

70 SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Walking into Mexico at the nation's busiest border crossing with the United States is no longer an uninterrupted stroll for foreigners.

Starting late Wednesday, pedestrians going to Tijuana from San Diego at the San Ysidro crossing must choose between a line for Mexicans who get waved through, and a line for foreigners who must show a passport, fill out a form and - if staying more than a week - pay 322 pesos, or roughly $20, for a six-month permit.

Also, ignore the historical significance of the Dixie Highway as a precursor to the Interstate System? Raycyssty CBFs, etc, notwithstanding, the Dixie Highway was a major and important step in developing modern highway systems in this country.

Plus, it helped all the carpetbaggers get to Florida faster. ;-)

79 Oh, here you all are.

Here's my Iowa State Fair report for Fenelon:

The fair was great! The best part was the Ultimate Bacon Brisket Bomb:
http://is.gd/i4tSZB but the craft beer tent was great, too.

The
worst part was it was really hot and humid and the youngest nephew kind
of melted down about mid-afternoon so they had to leave early.

We
skipped all the political stuff. We saw cameras and state troopers and I
thought I saw Gov. Branstad, but I couldn't see who they were with.
Later learned the only candidate who was there the day I was was
Guliani. I'd definitely shake his hand sometime if the opportunity
presents, but maybe not wait in the hot sun to not see him over the
people in front of me.


Oh, and there was a No Labels booth in the Varied Industries building. I laughed at it.

Haven't been to TJ in maybe 30 years, and will probably go to the grave without going again.

Dirty, dusty, smelly, unattractive place with lots of cheaply-made crap for sale. Faramcias for Gringos who want Rx drugs without the Rx. I've heard -- but don't know for a fact -- that hookers are plentiful, along with all kinds of bizarre "adult" entertainment.

Did I mention dirty?

Until I went to Mexico City and Puebla later, I thought all of Mexico was an open sewer. Now I know that only the cities are open sewers.

No shit. Though DeBlasio only rules NYC, he acts like the State is his bitch. While I am not a fan of Cuomo, Cuomo has told DeBlasio to GFH several times, particularly over charter schools. I shudder at the thought of DeBlasio in any office higher than mayor, he has already screwed NYC up and seems content to keep screwing it up until it resembles Detroit on a bad day.

Long ago, in another millennium, one of the most active regular commenters on CompuServe Religion Forum was a certain elderly Texas Baptist preacher (also AF vet and scientist).

One day, he went dark. Then, after a few weeks, he showed up again, more powered to preach than ever, I noticed.

Then suddenly he disappeared again, and we got one last sad message from his account, his daughter announcing that he had died.

He'd never said a word about his health, but obviously that last burst was him doing his gospel best on his way out. You are not forgotten, Dr Jerry.

Always wanted to see Watkins Glen, HR. Mainly for the race track, but I've been told the town is worth seeing as well.

Sadly, most race tracks are not located in places renowned for charm and beauty (think: Daytona Beach, Phoenix Int'l Raceway, etc.), but the Glen is an exception.

I feel the same way about the track in Elkhart Lake, WI, which I have been fortunate enough to see and drive on.

While this doesn't get a lot of press, there are thousands of babies born to foreigners who are in the country legally, but only temporarily, and they are citizens. That should end as well. Plus there's an entire industry of Asian women flying to the west coast or Hawaii, at about 8 months pregnant, for the sole purpose of popping the kid out on US soil.

enforcement agencies to conduct further investigations," Zhang said.

"Once law enforcement officers in the US and Australia identify
illegal funds, they will immediately initiate judicial procedures to
freeze and confiscate those criminal proceeds in their countries."

More than half the known corrupt Chinese officials have transferred
their illegal assets offshore and escaped to the US, Canada and

These days, our spiritual betters feel the need to abuse the truth in an effort to advance SOCIAL JUSTICE.

172 Watkins Glen was an object lesson in just why you don't put race courses in the middle of lovely scenic areas. In the early 70's, it got real Woodstocky there.

M.I.S. is in the beautiful Irish Hills (kind of like a "finger lake region" IYKWIM) of SE Michigan, and for most of a race week it gets ugly as hell.

Summit Point WV, just about 50 miles from DC, is very nice country. But to get there from Ahia, you have to go through Maryland. And you'll get a ticket.

Come to think on it, Mid-Ohio is interesting. Real close to the ridge that separates the part of Ohio that's really New England from the part that's really Indiana. Plan on camping though; it's two hours from anywhere. When you are done subtracting the parts of Ohio that are really PA, IN, KY and WV, there's not much left. And I'm in the part that's really Michigan. Doubly cursed, you might say.

In May.

If you have some old maps and a lot of patience, it's possible to travel the whole path of I-75 on Old Dixie Highways. Like driving state routes in the West, it's a real revelation on the history of road building. Until WV finished it's turnpike, they used to boast of the beauty of driving their back roads. But they were front roads then.

Of course, the real center of the US is near Lima, Ohio, where Dixie Highway crosses the Lincoln. Both built with no federal funds. Crapo Durant, Chambers of Commerce, Old Hank and his arm-twistin' camper buddies, yes, but no actual US taxpayer funds.

253 Decent numbers for Rubio. The Q-Pac poll practically screams, 'Rubio posed to make a major move upward', but when?!? My guess: after the South Carolina primary. Rubio has a strong organization in SC and FL borders SC. I suspect Rubio finishes top-4 in Iowa, top three in NH, wins SC, and that finally pushes him into front-runner status, which he keeps for the remainder of the campaign.

Has anyone been tracking how many players are suspended for substance use policy violations? I have to think the numbers are approaching triple figures. Every day on my sports news crawl is another guy suspended 4 games.


Some appear to be PED violations. Others I suspect, smoking jay. I'm about as anti-marijuana as anybody, but this is more than a little bit ridiculous, and frankly I can't seen any good reason why it's the NFLs business that its players are toking it up.

There are a lot of nice places here--not as dramatically beautiful as upstate NY--but it's real easy to have a good time in Indiana for a four-day weekend.

455 @410

Mark Levin had an actual constitutional scholar on last evening and they had the definitive conversation with regards birthright citizenship, long story short, birthright citizenship is not part of the constitution nor contained in the 14th amendment, there have been no SCOTUS cases dealing with this specific issue, there was a case in 1898 but is not germaine in this case.

Basically the concept of birth right citizenship as we currently know it was burped out of the federal beuracracy because the scholar has scoured case and cannot find it.

Constitutionally, congress has plenury power over matters of immigration and naturalization so they can define citizenship and who can receive it.

So no, we do not need a constitutional amendment to end birth right citizenship for illegal aliens.

If you can find the audio it's a fascinating listen.

I get what people say when they argue this, but the fact is the 14th amendment is incredibly poorly written and should never have passed as is.

Every conservative ever has always argued for plain reading of the constitution, and plain reading of the 14th amendment does indeed say birthright citizenship is the law of the land. It wasn't meant to, but then it wasn't meant to say two dudes could get married, either.

So many applicable laws, so little application.

Pretty much every aspect of immigration is addressed thoroughly in Naturalization and Immigration laws on the books.

Uberliberal Immigration judges have legislated from the bench for far too long.

Sure, like I said, it wasn't intended to do what it plainly does in its language.

The 14th amendment is garbage. It needs to be repealed and re-written. As it stands right now, the way its worded, it negates all kinds of long-standing laws such as the entire concept of limiting laws for children such as drinking and driving ages.

There probably ought not be birthright citizenship, but that's what the amendment says. There's an easy way to fix that which would not require a constitutional amendment, of course.

After the war and loss of 58,000 men who honorably answered the call to duty, Cartah took it upon himself to pardon thousands of evaders who refused the call to service and escaped to Canada and Europe to avoid serving their nation.

Jimmah will go to his death with this shameful disparagement of the brave and honorable young men who answered the call. Jimmah is a disgrace to those lost in battle.
