French pensioners are not going to hobble out to man the barricades and save the republic.
America is headed the same way. If we don't control the border soon we will end up losing the American southwest in 20 years. And no, the Bush double talk isn't helping.
And yes, i would like to know. Is it a racist speech for you ?

"America is headed the same way. If we don't control the border soon we will end up losing the American southwest in 20 years. And no, the Bush double talk isn't helping."
And next, Mid-America.
I'm looking forward to the publication of your book, I hope the MSM and C-SPAN give you some coverage when it gets printed.
LOL, when pigs fly!
