“Over? Did you say “over”? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! ”

And John McCain knows… he voted for war on Nazi Germany, just after dropping by the old folks home with some flowers for his mother.

@Serolf Divad: Didn’t he also vote to declare war on the Kaiser’s Germany or have I confused him with Robert Byrd?

Obama is sending 1200 National Guard troops to the border.

who is this Pearl Harbor and why would the bomb her?

@Capt Howdy: 80’s rockabilly singer known for her remake of Wanda Jackson’s “Fujiyama Mama”.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Would be ironic if my buddy from Mexico now serving in the National Guard had to go.

@nojo: That Teddy Roosevelt had the right idea fightin’ them Mexicans over there on San Juan Hill before we had to eat their fajitas here.

Fun Fact: George Patton was part of an expeditionary force into Mexico looking for Pancho Villa after a raid on Columbus, New Mexico around 1912. Also, I read John Reed’s “Insurgent Mexico” under a palm frond shelter on the beach in Tulum smoking a cigar on my honeymoon 15 years ago this July.

@Serolf Divad & @Dave H: In those times, gentlemen settled their differences in a civilized way–the chariot race!
