Re: “Border Patrol Agents Bust Migrants Seeking Medical Aid at No More Deaths Desert Camp

Our illustrious leader could tweet to his Republican sycophants that he wants a bill on his desk that states anyone who offers aid and comfort to ANY undocumented person regardless of whether that person is gravely ill or not will be prosecuted for breaking the law and incarcerated.

Makes sense to me, why would BP not be there every day?

The "ultimate goal" is to try to save human beings.

The border agents did the job they were hired to do. The Red Cross did the job they volunteered to do.
What is the problem? If the people coming over the border want to enter without harassment, they need get the paperwork completed and walk through the border gate. I love immigrants, I do not like people that break the laws, including you people that speed on the freeway. If you are caught drunk driving, you go to jail. If you break into a person's house you either go to jail or get shot. If you break into the USA, you go to jail and get deported or get shot. What is the problem?

Re: “Atomic Punk

Hey Nutritionist, why bag on the Frog when there's a McDonald's right there on the corner? The kids are bypassing McDonald's on the way to the Frog because the Frog serves good, unprocessed food. You should go complain about McDonald's embalmed mummy burgers instead, since you claim to be a "nutritionist".

Re: “Don't Forget the Coop

Eh, it wasn't meant to be a big deal. I just thought it would be fun trivia/gossip to find out, especially since I have some history with La Paloma and El Conquistador. You know, kind of like seeing an autographed photo of a cool celebrity at a restaurant you like.

I've been planning to come back to my hometown for a while now, so I won't be an "ex" much longer anyway. :)

Re: “The Skinny

What a joy it was to grow up with Mike as my older brother! While Mike and brother Fred were close in age, I came along later in '43 and was nurtured and stood up for by my hero, Mike, who played baseball with me by rounding the bases on his knees to "make it fair". I watched him play football at Pomfret and tried valiently but unsuccessfully to live up the school legend that was Mike Hard.
We both owe the entirety of our life credo to our father Fred Hard, Sr.. As upstanding and hard-working a man ever was, Dad was a legend in the sailing world as much as the most respected of Wall St. traders. His nickname among fellow Exchange members and friends was "Honest".
Nary a day goes by that I don't find myself asking him subconsciously if I'm using the right tool, making the right business decision, tying the right knot, or cobbling together a mechanical device.
His sense of humor was unique, to say the least; one day while heading home in a fog from Fire Island he remarked, "Oh..I know where we are now...I recognize that wave".
Happy Father's Day, "Honest"

Re: “Atomic Punk

I really liked the article and your comments about the family who owns it. If I was in Tucson, I would stop by there and check it out!! That does not mean I would eat there EVERY day

Re: “Atomic Punk

People need to stop being so critical about others opinions. Just because a restaurant has good ole fashioned yummy comfort food does not mean it's a bad place, or that you have to eat there every single day. Same as bars, they aren't for everyone and drinking too much is bad for you. That doesn't make bars bad. Every person in these United States have a right to their choice of food...and their opinions, that does not make every other persons choice of food wrong...and their opinions are just as justified as yours. If you don't like the Frogs food, don't go there. I don't like tofu, but I won't put you down because you do. You can disagree a little nicer, and show your children that being kind is number one, not criticizing other people's choice of food.

Beautiful! Stay lost in your chaos. I'm leaving the chatterbox less lonely Monday night. Drunk on displays of domestic tenderness.

Re: “Border Patrol Agents Bust Migrants Seeking Medical Aid at No More Deaths Desert Camp

It sounds like the ultimate goal is to provide medical assistance to those in need so they can continue on and break our laws. What do they do when an entrant is near death, fly them to a Tucson hospital? The liability exposure is phenomenal.BP saves lives and gets no credit.

Re: “Border Patrol Agents Bust Migrants Seeking Medical Aid at No More Deaths Desert Camp

"According to NMD, the group has had an unsigned written agreement with the Tucson Sector Border Patrol since 2013, with the federal agency pledging to not to interfere with the humanitarian camp that provides life-saving medical treatment to many migrants every year."

I find it hard to believe that anyone in authority at the Border Patrol would enter into any agreement -- signed/unsigned or verbal -- that is contrary to the rules, regulations and laws governing the agency's operations.

As for providing humanitarian aid, which is more humane: Providing an empty hope that those making this deadly journey will somehow reach their destination unscathed, or saving lives and returning people who have freely chosen to violate the law and borders of the United States.
