    But I'm betting it won't stop you from implying that people out there really want it anyhow.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It wouldn't be just a fence, any more than it's just a fence around the White House. We just don't have the balls to do it right at the border.

    Their reputation has been tarnished in the last few years.
    Heya Crosscheck. Yeah considering this was actually the second intrusion in less than 24 hrs. Now they are saying this guy did have a knife.

    I wonder how much of this is true? We only know what they're reporting, but this seems extraordinarily sloppy and out of character for the Secret Service! just sayin'...........

    Myabe to him they are not the same thing.

    I guess for him the issue is not the crossing, but why they are crossing.

    Crossing to take jobs in the US - Acceptable

    Crossing to hurt the President - not acceptable.

    The crossing the barrier is the issue, not the why of it.

    All I'm saying that although some may find the breech unacceptable, others may secretly be disappointed the target wasn't acquired.
    How does it call somebody's character into question if they are not an Obama supporter?

    Do you know how that sounds to sane people? If you don't support Obama, you are a horrible person.

    You can't really believe that.

    Secret Service boosts security outside White House.....

    The head of the Secret Service has stepped-up security outside the White House after a man who jumped the fence made it into the presidential residence before being apprehended, the Secret Service said Saturday, as President Barack Obama insisted he still has confidence in the beleaguered agency.

    Director Julia Pierson ordered enhanced officer patrols and surveillance along the North Fence of the compound just after the incident on Friday evening, which triggered a rare evacuation of the White House as well as renewed scrutiny about the agency's ability to protect the president and his family. The Secret Service said Pierson had also ordered a comprehensive review of the incident.....snip~

    Dumb ****s! Heads need to roll for this.
    With what has been going on lately, maybe a different expression is in order.

    Fence jumpers are nothing new - what is new is that this guy actually got INTO the White House. Incredible since the SS are on duty 24/7/365 and have been for decades to prevent just such an occurrance from happening. Just think - this guy could have had a dirty bomb or C4 strapped to him or a biological weapon and got INTO the White House because of failed Secret Service. I saw on CNN that there is now a full sweep of the grounds to make sure this guy didn't drop something - like a weapon or biologic. This is a WTF moment.


    It's kind of a yawn actually.

    He wasn't shot, no one injured, and some press had to evacuate.

    Call it a test of security and go back to bed...but then I live in a country where the Prime Minister's wife had to fend off a burglar while the RCMP smoked dope or something. "Security, we don't need no stinking security.."
