    But we have plenty of money to take care of the ever increasing number of boarder jumpers.

    Guess what, same thing happened in Raleigh yesterday. Difference is you won't hear about it on the news. Can't skew the impression that it's "the best place to live".

    it's actually been kind of quiet in durham lately--what with all the other outlying counties having shootings and all. At least there is one thing I can count on in Durham, most shooting take place within the same vicinity.

    Nobody is here blaming the gun yet? Where is HANS when you don't need him?

    Imagine if the violent crimes committed by blacks represented the same percentage of their population as do violent crimes committed by white people. This would be a much better country.

    This is true. The actual amount of violence is incredible. It is more likely to be reported in the news if a firearm is used though. I've seen the white sheet over someone and looked to the news the next day to find out what happened only to find that nothing had been reported in the news.

    It is so sad that so many people are getting shot because of gangs and drugs. The gov. cuts insurance coverage to the elderly. But look at all the money the hospitals are spending to keep shot or stabed people alive. We need to stop the war on people in the US. The cost is killing us.

    Political correctness is also keeping us from closing the borders, its jut better to let the diseases in than hurt someone's feelings.
