I do think there's an element of click bait, there, but I have to wonder what would have happened at Ferguson if a bunch of Bundy Ranch militia types had shown up, legally armed.

Which, if you believe their rap, they should have.

I think that's a more valid question in the comparison of LEO response, and crowd demographics. Or you could look at the way LEO handled various OWS movements across the country. It ranged from chuckles to pepper spray, regardless of the race of the protestors.

I was mainly thinking of the tech that enables criminal back-ground checks, certifies employment, verifies school transcripts, etc, as it relates to the process of documenting the undocumented population. Our 11 million undocumented, presently in the US, is the biggest source of contention and debate it seems to me.

I do feel a mite queasy over the somewhat draconian super-powers of border patrol, but it's the same kind of queasy I feel over the draconian super-powers of law enforcement, in general.

I was thinking on a more micro level. How do we (The US) as a country come to an immigration policy that prevents our country from acting as a sponge for criminals, terrorists and other bad actors yet still allows hard working, well intentioned, peace loving people access to our country.

We've got the tech to do it. The 'leaders' in Congress, IMO, lack the political will to piss off any portion of their constituents.

This administration has actually done more to control the borders than people realize and has shown pretty high deportation rates. POTUS' decision to band-aid the situation was correct, and in my opinion entirely legal, but I agree with him and you that it isn't a long-term solution.

Jim Webb announced he's formed an exploratory committee to consider a run for prez in 2016.

He looks like the kind of candidate I'd dig. Maybe some difficulty with women. He's in my 'maybe so' column.

Haters. :P

Besides I will take an EATR OUT. I will feed it lots of biscuits, gravy and fried chicken, convince it to park itself in front of the TV, and watch it slowly succumb to the technical equivalent of heart disease.

I read early on that every public tweet that is sent is archived at the Library of Congress. I guess there was something kind of creepy about that, but now that I think about it, of course every tweet, and if we're to believe Snowden, every other bit of electronic communication is likely being archived somewhere.

I get only about a week of being able to dress in jackets and tights. My inner fashionista is kind of pissed at me right now for not dressing up today.

It was a mite chilly down here this morning. I had to wear a sweater, and should have donned a hipster scarf, but I forgot it.

Why? Because now I can't get an hour alone with a Florida-shaped waffle slathered in Nutella out of my head?

Inexplicably.

Hotels with "Florida Shaped Waffles" tend to rent rooms by the hour.....

So just long enough for breakfast then.

AARGH.

And the worst of it is, I did this to myself.

I suppose this awkward tangent is on me for the eta. In my own defense I can only offer that I forgot my lunch.

I guess this spells the doom of Southeast Asia. Because: foliage and heavy population.

And it kind of sickens me, that I might actually be right about that. :(
