    I never said it was in the quote you responded to.
    I said if you had read it.
    You obviously wanted to participate without familiarizing yourself to all that had been said. Had you, you would have read it.
    That is your problem, not mine.

    That is interesting.
    I doubt that is true, but interesting that you think that.

    Somebody suggested sanctions. That sure doesn't sound like an invasion to me.

    No one said how was unimportant.
    But "How" is irrelevant to the in-general question.

    The "How" of a "Yes" answer is totally dependent on the answerer's own beliefs.

    Why that is so hard for some folks to understand, is beyond belief.


    Well golly gee.
    No one was speaking about like or dislike. Go figure!

    Unless Mexico is packing up mini-vans with potential illegal immigrants, no.

    Yes.

    It's an open mafia state and a fake country. Mexican cops go around with rich cartel members and "hunt" poor mexican women, rape them and then discard their bodies like a shot gazelle all in collusion with the mexican government.

    There are all kinds of ways to hold Mexico responsible. Peaceful means such as increased tariffs on Mexican goods, travel bans,visa bans, trade embargo, a tax on all money transfers to Mexico, cutting off foreign aid and other assistance, requiring Western Unions and other money wiring places and financial institutions such as banks and prepaid credit cards to require a social security card, state issued ID or e-verify check in states that issue licenses and IDs to illegals. There is also non-peaceful means such as war and occupation of Mexico in order to exploit their resources.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    So you agree with my idea? Or are you trying to weasel out of anything specific?

    My mistake. I was responding to your use of past tense grammar - "had you read..."

    Anyway, I can only answer both yes and no the way the OP is set up.

    Obviously you thought you said something important that needed to be responded to immediately.

    Guess what? Obviously you didn't.
    Nor does my lack of an immediately reply mean anything.
    But dismissing the foolish things you say does.




    Your failure to focus on the topic is noted.
    Nor have I indicated any such thing. You really shouldn't go around assuming.

    And since what you presented isn't even a valid comparison, it sounds like nothing but delusional thoughts.

    OMG! More than two minutes has passed and she hasn't replied.
    Like OMG! She is off-line to boot.
    Oh my lord, what ever should I do?
    [/sarcasm]
    Im sorry you didnt think the context and implications of your post through, but thats your problem

    There you go... let's take Mexico to court. We win a huge settlement and hurt their economy even more and then more immigrants flood the border... sounds great.
