I offer my thoughts and prayers to the soldiers and family members of the 186th MP Company which shipped out to Iraq on Saturday for their second tour of duty. And I selfishly thank God for the peace of mind he brought our family for my brother-in-law's discharge papers two weeks before their new orders. Joe, I'm proud of you, but I'm glad you'll be sitting this one out.
God Bless all the troops and return them safely to their families.
Special thanks to Army Veteran Gregory S. Engle for this special video tribute to remind us all why they fight. Please stop whatever it is you were previously doing to watch and take the time to appreciate our Veterans today.
The breakdown of our immigration laws has come to this: Not only do illegal aliens have a de facto right to live here without penalty, but they also have the right, it seems, to live here without having their piece of mind disturbed by the possibility that they face any chance of being deported.
This sense of entitlement does a great injustice to the thousands of law-abiding foreigners who are patiently waiting to enter the country legally, and it makes a mockery of our laws.
