The nation is preparing for its biggest terrorism exercise ever next week when three fictional "dirty bombs" go off and cripple transportation arteries in two major U.S. cities and Guam, according to a document obtained by The Associated Press.

Subject: re "Chertoff: Illegals 'degrade' environment"


What a tool. Like a pile of crap in the border area desert, which will be totally gone in about four days, degrades the environment more than the millions of gallons of water pumped daily from a drying aquifer to keep lawns in Phoenix green.
Where do these idiots come from? All the piles of garbage left by all the desperate people risking everything in a suicidal attempt to better themselves can't compare with the damage done drilling one oil well on a thawing tundra.
That loud pop you just heard was Michael Chertoff pulling his head out of his ass. Oops, wait, it was some redneck asshole shooting at an unarmed migrant. Sorry, my bad.




Let's deport these crazy neocon Republicans and there will be plenty of room for hardworking immigrants!
