Why we need a wall on the U.S. - Mexican sieve, er, border:

by Paul C / August 9, 2008 7:40 PM PDT

1. To keep illegal immigrants out, and

2. To keep the Mexican Army out.

Four Mexican army soldiers entered southern Arizona and pointed their rifles at a U.S. Border Patrol agent early this week, the Border Patrol said.

The incident Sunday was the Mexican military's 43rd incursion across the U.S. border since October, the agency said. However, it was unusual because firearms were involved. The Border Patrol and the Mexican government are investigating, Border Patrol spokesman Mike Scioli said.
(Emphasis mine)

Minefields might help too, methinks...

I don't think the minefields would be a good idea

I do think we need a wall and for the Army to make border parol a regular part of their rotation

Boo! things in the dark

Mex. Army regulars are known to have drug cartel ties and may in fact be a driving cartel themselves. So, I would look at this side of things just as much as any intrusion by the Mex. Army by some mistake and/or plan outside of drug reasons. These kinds of confrontations can too easily escalate so real training and preparedness besides a fence/wall is necessary. -----Willy Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
