WhaT BordeR PatroL?

Canadian border guards at four crossings in the Lower Mainland of B.C. have walked off the job in response to a security scare.

And You think WE have border problems

Canada’s border guards are currently unarmed — the Conservative government has promised a 10-year program to change that – and have the right to walk off the job if conditions are dangerous. The guards exercised that right.

Little known facts about our border patrol in the good ole U.S. of A.

They guard the 6,000 miles of our border with one tenth as many people as are in the New York City police department.

More than 1,000 have been killed or wounded protecting our country.

More than 90 Border Patrol officers have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The function of the Border Patrol has been an essential element of our country since before our Constitution was even written. On July 4th, 1776 our Founding Fathers declared our country independent from England. It is this act that we celebrate on July 4th of every year.

The eighteenth reason for our separation from England — as listed in our Declaration of Independence — is the King’s refusal to provide the people of America with safe frontiers — defended by a Border Patrol.

Some say that America is under attack as it has never been before in its entire history. They say that for the first time, American civilians were wantonly slaughtered by an evil foe right on our shores. And they say that for the first time, our armed forces were suddenly helpless in the face of such heinous criminality.

What people do not understand is that the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were not the first attacks on mainland America.

No. They were not.

And the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were not the first time that our armed forces were helpless in the face of such an evil foe.

We have been attacked before. In a little town called Columbus. The year was 1916. And at that place and time innocent American men, women, and children — including children in the womb — were slowly, knowingly, and wantonly slaughtered. It was then that Pancho VIlla and 1,000 of his marauding bandits came out of the desert wastes of Mexico and slaughtered the Americans in that town of Columbus. Villa and his men even used the flames of the burning buildings to light their targets so that they could shoot them all dead. Villa then escaped back into Mexico, and America awoke.

That evil attack of 1916 brought out the Fist of America in a way that — for our abilities as a tiny nation — were far greater than our response to the heinous crimes of 2001.

Just as on September 11, 2001, when United States Air Force fighter pilots were faced with protecting America by crashing their unarmed aircraft into al Qa-eda hijacked aircraft, on March 9th, 1916, our forces could only throw themselves at the enemy with bolt action rifles…. and guts.

That attack of 1916 caused us to mobilize the entire US Army, and when that was deemed not enough we called up the entire National Guard. As yet we have done nothing even remotely like that in response to September 11, 2001.

Unarmed Canadians fleeing the scene of the crime and our very own government refusing to protect its citizens.

Does it get any worse than this?

    “Does it get any worse than this?” *sigh* It may very well get worse than this Angel. Let’s pray that it doesn’t.

    This post is very informative because many people do not know about what happened in Columbus. It seems that there are a lot of folks to whom the world didn’t exist before the day they were born. Shame.

  3. Middle Class Guy says:

    What gets me sthat the Canadian government is proposing a ten year plan to arm the Border Patrol. Ten years to arm them? Ten years? It should only take about two weeks!!!!!!!!!!!! From my modest, humble, professional, opinion.

    Excellent point, Angel! And a point which is often overlooked.

  6. Middle America says:

    I don’t know Angel.
    But it’s really pissing me off.

  7. In Russet Shadows says:

    Too many people love government programs more than they love getting things done. That is why spending cuts take 10 years; that is why arming a border patrol takes 10 years; that is why getting around to face any problem takes more time than it takes for a child to grow up and enter college. Bureaucracies are the enemy of freedom and exist simply to prolong misery, not solve problems.
