No Border Wall Walk Day 8 at Smart Borders.

It is this force we have sought to channel this week through a sustained, nonviolent demonstration through communities bracing for the effects of the Secure Fence Act of 2006. As it stands now, the border wall is federal law, and so to counter this legislation, we must begin to change the hearts of the constituents who voted in politicians who would espouse such an atrocity on our southern border. We must positively and nonviolently educate our brothers and sisters here and throughout the United States.

Drugs wouldn't be a problem if nobody wanted them. Read The American side of the story on the Mexican Drug Cartels? at Dream Act Texas. Americans have to take the blaim for the proliferation of drug trafficking and the terror that goes along with the trade. I imagine most people that use drugs aren't too worried about the lives destroyed in getting them here. Also read Human Rights Violations against Migrants in Mexico.  Also make sure and read What does citizenship mean?.

For a quick funny go to Tiny Cat Pants and find the answer to the question Is there a name for the rule that says folks who want others to know English don’t know it that well themselves? We've all seen and heard the "English only" crowd who are often themselves grammatically challenged. They have a hard time learning one language while they complain about others learning their second one.

How a man that cannot even for a moment appear intelligent was elected our president is sad and quite sickening. Of course the fact that people still support him is just mind boggling. In It's STILL the Economy, Stupid Culture Kitchen shows us how blind reassurance won't help our failing economy.

Hey, thanks for this great round-up!

I was wondering if you saw the news items this week about outrageous backlogs and delays at US Immigration and Citizenship Services (see below) and how thousands of would-be citizens won't be able to vote in November.

In light of this news, I thought you'd be interested in my recently-posted *funny* video on YouTube that relates directly to this issue: "Thru the Plexiglass." It would be so great if you could share it with your readers and get more folks to look at it.

Thanks! -Will Coley
