Border Security

It is about time someone is doing something about the biggest problem in our nation. I had to learn about it from a UK news web site but I feel better knowing something is being done.

I have gone off about the border time and time again. My most favorite piece was "Where do you live?" It was popular enough to find it posted all over the place. Yet here we are still suffering the same problem. Our borders are as porous as a sieve and all we can do is sit back and wait for another terrorist strike. While we wait we are being robbed blind and slowly becoming a minority in our own nation. Our kids can't even go to school without having to conform to the foreigners instead of them conforming to us. Remember the US used to be a melting pot, we are becoming more of a distillation tower.

We suddenly look alot more like Italian salad dressing. We got the heavy particles on the bottom trying to become a part of something yet constantly falling out of touch with what it means to be part of America. We got the clear sharp contrast of vinegar. Just like Americans free to think do an act knowing that their part of the whole and respectful of that. We then have the oil. Murky and rising to the top. Doesn't want to mix in or become part of the nation. They generally have a me first mentality and think everyone should be below them. Being on top also makes them the first to be heard when the complaining starts. In fact, they complain so much it doesn't give anyone time to get to the rest of us.

What does all this have to do with border security? Let me cut to the chase. Boeing has been given a contract by Homeland Security to develop security equipment for monitoring the 7,500 miles of borders the US has with Mexico and Canada. They have a few other companies joining them in the endeavor, but the point is our government finally took a big hint. They won this contract under direct competition with the usual high tech crowd. You can read even more about it here.

I know it will take a while to get it all together, so I'm not expecting progress tomorrow. I also hope they add in chain guns and other lethal stop acts. If the news reported about a dozen or so dead bodies from trying to gain access each day, the migration would slow to a crawl.

Remember this is our house and we should have a say on who can come and go.
