    I don't know about the piranhas but they do have some big asp rattle snakes down that way.

    Darrell, they already have a moat. It is called The Rio Grande.

    Steve stated...No, I don't support a fence on the border...

    I agree with Steve. A fence would do little good and cost too much money. I much better
    idea would to be build a 20 foot deep canal-like-mote filled with millions of Brazilian widemouth piranhas. Much easier to maintain, would help with a water shortage and at the same time provide fresh fish for people who enjoy that kind of thing.

    No, I don't support a fence on the border. The fact is, it's 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso. Two things: How long you think it would take to build that? And then if you build a 30-foot wall from El Paso to Brownsville, the 35-foot ladder business gets real good.

    Good column Joe. You hit the nail right on the head. Except for Joanne and her ilk,
    most people understand we need to secure our borders despite what motivates the people to come here illegally. It's unfortunate those who only want to feed their family
    get caught up in all of this. But, there is no simple solution to deciphering the illegals who aren't a threat and illegals who are. And of course Joanne thinks terrorists organizations aren't paying off the coyotes and other human smugglers to get the Jihadests in here.

    And Joanne almost gives the ANYONE who wishes come here illegally a pass by implying they are more than welcome to use the border south of us to enter this country just to spite the Republicans. And frankly, I don't know how she can interpret Joe's desire to secure our borders as something evil. I suggest she get down on her hands and knees and thank those who are making a concerted effort to protect us from those who wish to do us harm.

    My goodness, Ms Bobin's rhetoric certainly borders on libel if not plain nastiness.

    Joanne: I've read the republican playbook. As you know, these are typical responses, deferring blame and accountablity onto knowledgable members of the other side. Expect more of this type of behavior. It wasn't easy, all things considered, to bring the rank and file wrong onto the same page, rebutal-wise.

    I've noticed daniel now corrects the incorrect usage of common words. And he's one of the smart ones (if there is such a thing). Very, very weak and impotent.

    I personally would not refer to my comment as "name calling." Just pure fact. And since you did not have any pertinent comments to make other than your stupid remark, I would not be commenting on others' intellect, Mr. Nelson.

    Ahhhh yes, name calling. Where liberals go when they have nothing intelligent to retort. You, Ms. Bobin, seem to go there a lot.

    As one of the chief bigots in Lodi and a Joe Guzzardi supporter, I can expect nothing less than a stupid comment from you, Mr. Nelson.

    Freudian slip Ms. Bobin?

    Joe Guzzardi never ceases to disgust me.

    How dare he equate terrorists with only one purpose - to destroy America and Americans, and who would have used any means within their power to get here to do it - with desperate people whose only desire is to feed their families.

    You are a joke, Joe Guzzardi. You are a disgrace to those who lost their lives on 9/11.
