  1. Regarding the second item, here’s what I said before:

    Here’s the editor of a Hispanic site discussing the – dare I say it – anti-liberty scheme that libertarians try to force on Mexico.

    Here’s a scary chart showing the GDP% for various countries due to money sent there from their nationals.

    For some very unhealthy numbers, here’s the percentage of several countries’ population that lives in the U.S.

    Let me take this opportunity to add another item to the list of things that “libertarians” support. Not only do they support giving power to the far-left, and not only do they support massive government handouts, and not only do they support MassiveSubsidies, but they also support propping up corrupt, anti-liberty governments.

    P.S. In case anyone replies to this, their responses will almost assuredly be ad homs delivered through sockpuppets, thereby conceding my points and showing the cowardly, childish, anti-intellectual nature of libertarians.

  2. Shut the fuck up, LoneWacko.

  3. Here’s the editor of a Hispanic site discussing the – dare I say it – anti-liberty scheme that libertarians try to force on Mexico.

    It is not anti-liberty to favor individuals and individual rights over forcing collectives into worse situations.

    Here’s a scary chart showing the GDP% for various countries due to money sent there from their nationals.

    That chart is scary? Less than 2% of Mexico’s GDP is due to remittances and you call that scary?

    For some very unhealthy numbers, here’s the percentage of several countries’ population that lives in the U.S.

    Migration among the Americas is a healthy thing. It is absolutely certain that those millions upon millions of people are better off than they would be if they were forced to remain in their home countries. It is almost certain that the many millions more who remain in their home countries are better off as well.

  4. Michael Jackson dead at 50
    Billy Mays dead at 50
    Manuel Zelaya ousted in a military coup
    and on top of all that critics slam a movie that people who actually saw the damned thing loved.

    I smell conspiracy.

  5. Billy Mays was the voice of my generation.

  6. Billy Mays was the voice of my generation.

    Man, that is depressing.

  7. Man, that is depressing.

    …yeah.

  8. and on top of all that critics slam a movie that people who actually saw the damned thing loved

    What movie are you talking about? Please tell me it isn’t Transformers.

  9. As usual, MikeP is wrong about everything. However, the idea that the current situation isn’t forced on both countries’ populations by a small, corrupt elite is ludicrous. Given a vote, both Americans and Mexicans would not choose the current situation. It has to be forced on them in various ways, all of which are supported by “libertarians” like those at this site.

    (Since that won’t be clear to libertarians, let me give an example of that force: constant lies by the MSM about this issue, literally hundreds of which I’ve covered at my site.)

    Is this an ad-hom?

  11. If any of you missed it, LoneWhacker and other H&R trolls explain important news events.

  12. “She won’t be burning anyone’s bed anytime soon”

    Awesome, BP, but the third panel’s link is bad.

  13. Nothing about Madoff yet? 150 years.

  14. Well, done BP.

    You might also want to note the LW thinks Asians are really SoyMexicans. And that black people are Mexicans that have over-tanned.

  15. Thanks, Epi – fixed now. I reloaded the 3d pic after TIO pointed out a mistake, and Blogger sometimes doesn’t like that…

  16. Even Illegal Immigrants Don’t Want to Live In California Anymore, by Katherine Mangu-Ward (6/22)

    I spent the week in New Jersey. The reason the IllegalImmigrantHorde is leaving California, is because the’re all moving to New Jersey.

  17. As usual, MikeP is wrong about everything.

    It’s detailed, point-by-point responses like this that have earned you so much respect across the Internet, Chris.
