41. Time to stock up on Mexican stoplight candy!
What do you mean, "time to make our move?" What does this have to do with anything involving America's problems, aside from the NAFTA business?

The only time Bush would ever take action against this is if there was something actually threatening the American borders, or something that would cut off the flow of money of his multinational corporate pals. And given the limited trust America has in the Bush administration now, there would be one hell of an uproar against any intervention at all.
