"That's like petting a kitten with a 2 x 4." --Nate Backman

the denver post thinks we have so many illegal aliens in the country because border security is too tight, and that's keeping them from going back to mexico after they sneak onto our side.

rob port responds: "Right. So obviously all of our illegal immigration problems would disappear if we'd just laxen our border security a bit. Of course, isn't that a little like saying that a woman wouldn't have been raped if she'd just said 'yes?'"

i will never use the phrase "cautious optimism" again.
