3. It's supposed to be a tri-corned hat...terrible job.
I think it's downright shameful they're using the Minute Men of 1776 as their icon. The Daughters of the Revolution ought to protest. Like Homer Simpson said about the word gay (as in the Gay '90s--1890s)"You stole our word."

4. They're PARANOID suckers, ain't they? A look back at their follies
ITEM. In their early phase they were attempting to counter allegations of racism against Mexicans and the Southern border by dispatching FOUR (4!!!1) of their members to the NORTHERN border, thereby showing how EQUAL their efforts were (yeah-RIGHT!!1). The FOUR got RUN out of town in Vermont, and they got LOST in the woods and inadvertantly became illegal aliens themselves by crossing over the border into Canada!!!!1

ITEM. A few months ago they were building a mile or two of fence on private property in Arizona. The Univision people covered it with their usual professionalism. The token Minuteman, a Hispanic turncoat, Al GARZA, was interviewed, along with representatives of all facets of the questions. The camera showed the location of the fence. Then it panned over to the side where the building materials were, and there, stacked neatly, were SACKS of concrete, that were clearly labelled, "Mezcla Concreto Mexicano" (Mexican Concrete Mix)!!!!1

5. For only 25 bucks, you can send a flag to the border to represent
YOU and our American ways of something or something else. Nationalism, jingoism, call it what you will but you can be guaranteed an illegal immigrant will stop at some point in our 'representation' at the border to wipe the sweat from his face with YOU...the American flag!

Illegal immigrants agree - YOU represent your country well at the border as the American flag!

Only 25 dollars, what a deal!

6. A wingnut 29%er answers to my e-mailing him this item
My subject line was, "Your Minutemen are paranoid suckers", then the link and story.

He responded: "Theyre probably right. Congress is probably tricking the voters. Wouldnt be the first time. Theyre cruising for a bruising and riding for a fall. The Repubs are managing to offend even their base."


Good portent in general.
