    McCain blames some Arizona wildfires on illegal immigrants

    McCain blames some Arizona wildfires on illegal immigrants - CNN.com


    (CNN) -- U.S. Sen. John McCain is blaming illegal immigrants for starting some of the wildfires that have scorched hundreds of thousands of acres in Arizona.

    "There is substantial evidence that some of these fires have been caused by people who have crossed our border illegally," McCain, R-Arizona, said Saturday at a press conference. "The answer to that part of the problem is to get a secure border."

    The Arizona senator, however, did not say what the evidence is, prompting a swift rebuke from Latino civil rights advocates.

    What I can't understand is why he didn't blame them for spreading disease at the same time.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Certainly sounds like a reasonable assumption.

    It is plausible that illegals could have sparked at least some of the wildfires, but how do we know?

    Is the new McCain now against illegal immigration? What happened to the old McCain who favored amnesty?

    He vanished the moment he realized that the Pied Piper is real, and that he's Mexican.

    McCain is sadly not that far away from a one way trip to the drool farm. Crap comes into his brain and he believes it and worse he repeats it. Worse still, a large number of suckers, dummies and fools believe his unfounded babble and worship him for "telling it like it is", regardless of the fact that McCain has no idea WTF he is talking about or for that matter what day of the week it is. Worst of all, slow learners who are influenced by McCain dribble will not take a second to verify anything he says.










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    This would be no surprise as they are responsible for a great deal of damage all over the Nation incuding fires in the back country.
