Truth, Stranger Than Dale

Further proof that every absurdity uttered in jest eventually comes to pass in reality:
Mexican state issuing llegals GPS devices.
I was wondering why the above news item from The Telegraph sounded familiar, and then I recalled this Untethered post from last May (relevant passage in boldface):

Gracias por llamar La Casa Blanca. Para Ingles marque el cinco.

Did you hear how the National Guard post was overran near the border. A foreign force attacking our troops and the media plays it like it's a bus crash with a few fatalities:
No big deal.

The govt., the media, the corporations, so many bastards are in on the destroying of America. I've wondered if there is not a way like a RICCO (RICO?) charge or some kind of lawsuit or rights violation that could be initiated against these people, especially this administration?

Also, what was Bush's margin of victory? Was it about 3 million. At the least, could we not form the 3 million club, an online petition of Americans who will vote against anyone who does not secure the border?

The trials for treason will have to wait unitl we live in a more reasonable era.
