I worry sometimes that as a nation we forget that Chuck Norris says things in public that are wonderfully representative of the sentiments of head trauma victims who were halfwit right wing assholes to start with.
After a decade of playing one on television, I, along with my brother Aaron, was blessed a few months ago to become a real Texas Ranger in the presence of Gov. Rick Perry, fellow Texas Rangers and many others.
Wait, so, Chuck Norris is now a Real Cop in Texas...?
Well, there's no way to officially make him an "actor," so I guess it's something.
The latest statistics show that 34,000 people have been killed in Mexico because of organized crime and drug trafficking during the past five years alone, and officials expect that number to rise. Yet we don't expect that escalating violence to increasingly spill over into the U.S.?
Oooh, a problem. Mexico-ians are fighting. This is Bad News for Texas-owians.This is proved by Facts.
--In April 2010, on a street in Fort Hancock, Texas, four Hudspeth County employees were working on a remote unpaved road, when an unknown gunman fired from across the Rio Grande. (In a January 2011 letter to the U.S. House of Representatives' Judiciary and Homeland Security committees, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott described the shooting as "yet another incident involving cartel-related gunfire.")
--In June 2010, El Paso's City Hall was struck by at least seven shots fired from across the border in Ciudad Juarez, the epicenter of Mexico's ongoing drug war.
--In August 2010, at least one stray bullet from Mexico hit a building at the University of Texas at El Paso.
--In October 2010, U.S. tourist David Hartley reportedly was shot by a Mexican gunman.
--In November, the University of Texas at Brownsville temporarily canceled classes because of ongoing gunfire across the border in Matamoros, Mexico.
Well, not good, sure, but proof of what...?
I agree with Rep. Ben Quayle, R-Ariz., who said that for cattle ranchers, the daily reality of drug and human smugglers traversing their property is "far more impacting" than Napolitano conveys. Quayle went on to say, "Statistics and averages might mean something to government bureaucrats and analysts in Washington, but try telling the people who deal with these realities every day that the violence along the border has subsided."
The "proof" of "violence" across the border according to Chuck Norris is "occasional stray bullets."
It is perfectly abhorrent as to how the US government refuses to take action as regards bullets shot in Mexico intended to hit Mexican targets that stray into American airspace.
Clearly we need the ruthless imposition of tariff duties on any small munitions that are so gauche as to exceed the Rio Grand and hence unfairly further the interests of the lead industry.
I blame unions!
