I am extremely excited to let you all know that Chuck Norris not only knows who I am, but he agrees with my point of view! Enough to quote me in a lengthy piece he recently wrote for WorldNetDaily.com. Now, WND is not my favorite source of information because they're very skewed to the right - more so than me - but I can't help but be excited that Mr. Norris found my opinion significant enough to quote. Here's a brief excerpt:
"After a decade of playing one on television, a few months ago, my brother, Aaron, and I were blessed to become real Texas Rangers, in the presence of Gov. Rick Perry, fellow Texas Rangers and many others. Gov. Perry mentioned at that induction, 'As the drug cartels have turned up the heat on the other side of that border over the past few years, we have invested significant state resources to secure our border, looking to local police departments, county sheriffs, game wardens and even Texas military forces. However, when it was time to take the fight to the bad guys, there was only one choice to lead our efforts, so we formed our Ranger recon teams. It is reassuring to know that our Rangers are on the job, especially in light of ongoing reports of deteriorating conditions with kidnappings, assassinations and terroristic acts just miles from Texas communities.'
"Only weeks later, on Jan. 31, 2011, U.S. Department of HomelandSecuritySecretary Janet Napolitano asked public officials to stop exaggerating claims of violence on the U.S. side of the border and "be honest with the people we serve." She added, "Let's stick with the facts. We need to be up front and clear about what's really happening along our borders." And the very same day she told a group at the University of Texas in El Paso that it is inaccurate to say that the border is out of control and overrun with violence, citingstatisticsfrom the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting program. However, Sylvia Longmire, a former special agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and a senior intelligence analyst and bordersecurityexpert for the California Emergency Management Agency, says Napolitano's statements don't have a leg of credibility to stand on."
