Picked up from AP, we have a story about a Honduran, Marlon Robert Cortes, being deported because he just missed the new guidelines from Obama.

Well, shoot, why don’t we just not make any lines at all. No time frames, no age groups. Let’s bring back all deportees from the last living survivor and give them restitution for being so mean.

Did anyone bother to figure the non-charitable aid to these countries? Mexico gets more than half a billion in foreign aid, not counting drug enforcement, cost to our Border Patrol, little emergencies like fighting fires, floods, storms and such.

Medical and support to all the Mexicans living in the U.S. Ibet we really don’t know the real dollar cost Mexico burdens us with.

Aid to Honduras was just reinstated; it was withdrawn because they wouldn’t do a few things we wanted them to do. The writer of this story is unnamed. Why don’t they adopt Marlon instead of asking us to?

We just contributed to the reelection of Sheriff Joe in Arizona.

Bill Hoffrage,
