The perception of Mexican drug cartel violence spilling into U.S. border towns is flat-out inaccurate, U.S. Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano insisted Friday.
Napolitano, speaking in El Paso, Texas, declared that security along the southern U.S. border is at an all-time high.
"There is a perception that the border is worse now than it has ever been," Napolitano said Friday in El Paso, Texas. "That is wrong. The border is better now than it ever has been."
As for crime, the image of Mexican drug violence contaminating U.S. border cities is "wrong again," she said.
Well some of the border may indeed be more secure because of recent increased security, it doesn't hurt to tag along with a couple of heavy armed dudes with body armor.
You read it right. Customers who buy Dish Network will be rewarded with a firearm.
"I think it really, really fits the Bitterroot Valley," said Steve Strand, who has owned Hamilton's Radio Shack for about seven years.
Strand, along with store manager Fabian Levy, wanted to generate more foot traffic at their location. So far, the gun giveaway has worked like a charm.
"It's been really successful," Levy said.
According to Strand, it has tripled his business since the promotion started last October. And, he said, easily hundreds of people have stopped in to see what the sign is all about. "Protect yourself with Dish Network. Sign up now, get free gun," the sign reads.
After the customer signs a service contract and sets up an install date, they are given a gift certificate for their gun. They can also opt for a $50 gift card from Pizza Hut if they prefer, Strand said. And customers who purchase new Dish Network service that don't qualify for a firearm are still given the Pizza Hut gift card.

Senator Biden was pretty specific when he warned then president Bush that he had better not invade Iran without first getting the Congress to declare war on them. He even trotted out the Constitution as the basis for this opinion.
Apparently Vice President Biden believes the Constitution only applies to Republican presidents.
I don't hear him objecting to Obama's authorization to drop bombs and fire hundreds of missiles into Libya.
If we can't impeach Obama for this userption then what will it take?
