John McCain has suddenly been calling for tighter border control. Hmmm. 'Bout time! Where was he in 2008!
barrack hussein obama has said he is sending 1200 National Guard to the US-Mexico border. Hmm. That border is 1969 miles long* Let's assume and we all know what that means half of the border is protected by other various sources, ie: Border Patrol, Local Sheriff's, State Police and the occasional vigilante. That leaves us with a balance of 984.5 miles of unprotected border. Hang with me young people this is not modern math here where if you are close you are all right. Let's take the number of National Guard working 40 per week 1200 times 40 equals 48,000 hours. Not bad, a pretty impressive number. Now let's see, 984.5 miles unprotected border divided into 48,000 man hours, hmmm. That equals 48.75... of hours of coverage per mile. This is looking good until, you stop to think. That is a tad bit over covering the mile two days out of 7. Nuff said!
Can you say "Smoke and Mirrors"?
