  • This is more of an opinion than a story, offered as humorously as I can hammer it out, given the raw material the political atmosphere of our nation leaves us without the threat of censure, surveillance, or possible incarceration...

    The caption I offer for this photograph is; "This is the suspected hiding place of an illegal immigrant garden gnome, as reported by Homeland Security. Surveillance continues at this time."

    With all kidding aside, There have been much more ridiculous arguments in Washington D.C. in favor of eroding our freedoms, and the rights that were supposed to be guaranteed us in the Declaration of Independence.

    The bill of rights? That baby has been thrown out with the proverbial bath water, and our leaders seem to have decided that the only right we still have, is the right to a good hosing rather than a bath!

    I think I would rather live with the illegal immigrants, and even a few terrorists if we keep a close eye on just them, than to have to tolerate any more politicians, lawyers, or oppressive law enforcement agencies.
