    Unfortunately Pima County is already Californicated....they'd all just hit Reid Park and sit around in a drum circle.

    Seriously though, that would be a huge concern especially if all or most of the ports got wiped out. Any goods from the Pacific would have to come up from Mexico and the borders just aren't set up for that additional volume.

    You need to premptively redefine "illegal immigrant" to include California refugees so you can shoot them before they cost you. At this point Californians and NYC residents are a bigger danger to our country than Mexicans are, and have fewer guns.

    No it is not time for that at all. Nuclear weapons shouldn't be used unless there is no other option...after we exhausted every other effort.


    I hate it when people want to use those weapons...too many innocent people will die. Do you want that?

    So if North Korea attempts to nuke South Korea or LA. Would we just completely destroy the whole country in response launching like 100 nukes?

    I really wonder what we would do. Or would we plan to invade instead, While they threaten to launch another one?

    But I believe the person you quoted was mentioning a worse case scenario. What is worse than having N.K. nuking Seoul or LA?

    North Korea as a collective is kind of like the creepy little kid who has no friends. Kids like that tend to grow into creepy adults that do really bad things.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Jr is just making himself out to be the tough guy so he doesn't appear weak in front of his own people.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Kim Jong Un is the kind of kid who, after receiving any kind of criticism, goes home and puts his hamster in the microwave.
