    I WATCHED YOUR VIDEO AGAIN WHERE YOU AND OTHER INDIVIDUALS ARE PICKING UP LITTER. BUT IT WASN’T UNTIL I SAW YOUR INTERVIEW WITH THE IMMIGRATION OFFICER THAT I WAS ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH.

    THIS IS JUST MY OPINION AND AS YOU KNOW WE ALL HAVE ONE. I BELIEVE YOUR GOAL OF CLEANING THE BORDER BETWEEN MEXICO AND THE UNITED STATES IS A VERY UNIQUE IDEA. HOWEVER, THIS WEBSITE AND YOUR CONVERSATIONS FOCUSE ON SEVERAL DIFFERENT ISSUES. ALL ISSUES HAVE THEIR MERITS. BUT I BELIEVE THAT YOU SHOULD STICK TO YOUR SOLE PURPOSE OF CLEANING THE BORDER. YOU HAVE TO MUCH INFORMATIONS THAT TAKES AWAY FROM YOUR MAIN IDEA. TRASH ON THE BORDER. IF YOU TRULY FEEL IT IS NECESSARY TO DISCUSS ALL THESE ISSUE, THEN YOU MUST CAREFULLY INCORPORATE THEM INTO YOUR CONVERSATION SO IT WILL HELP YOUR CAUSE NOT TAKE AWAY FROM IT AND BECOME THE MAIN IDEA.

    AS I TOLD YOU THE OTHER DAY. I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT YOUR PURPOSE WAS. WHY, WELL BECAUSE YOU SPEAK OF TRASH, THE PRESIDENT OF MEXICO, IMMIGRATION AND ITS OFFICERS, THE ARIZONA LAW, PROSTITUTION, AND THE TEA PARTY, ETC. ALL THOSE SUBJECTS ARE HUGE AND CAN BE EXPANDED. BUT IT SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE TRYING TO USE ALL THOSE DIFFERENT IDEAS TO SHOW YOUR PURPOSE ON THE BORDER. THE TRANSITION FROM ALL THOSE TOPICS TO YOUR CAUSE ARE SO VAGUE THAT THE READER/LISTENER GETS LOST. THE ONLY REASON THIS MADE ANY SENSE TO ME WAS BECAUSE I WAS ABLE TO LISTEN TO YOU AGAIN AND THEN I HEARD WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO. BUT ALL YOUR NEW AUDIENCE WILL NOT HAVE A SECOND CHANCE TO HEAR OR UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM AND YOU WILL LOOSE NEW SUPPORTERS.

    IF YOU ARE TRYING TO INCREASE SUPPORTS FOR YOUR IDEA, THEN YOU MUST MAKE IT CLEAR WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO. ONCES IT IS CLEAR WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO, THEN YOU CAN BRING IN THE OTHER SUBJECTS TO SUPPORT AND EXPLAIN YOUR IDEAS.

    ONE OTHER THING AND I WILL GET OFF MY SOAP BOX. AT FIRST WHEN I MET YOU I WAS SO CONFUSED AS TO WHERE YOU WERE COMING FROM AS THE WHITE BOY THAT YOU ARE. FOR A MOMENT I FELT THAT YOU WERE A TRUE RADICAL, SOMEWHAT LIKE THE KKK. BUT YOUR ASSOCIATION WITH JESSE AND YOUR MEXICAN GIRLFRIEND LET ME KNOW THAT YOU REALLY AREN’T ANTI – HISPANIC. IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO SHOW PEOPLE WHAT YOUR TRUE FEELINGS ARE WHEN IT COMES TO OTHER NATIONALITIES.

    ANYWAY, GOOD LUCK

    Thanks Sylvia,I do appreciate your opinion very much,and I know you are correct especially in the last paragraph,others may not understand our joking around like we do especially after a few beers.Some people get hung up on race and I sometimes forget that others may be sensitive.

    And yes I have a bad habit [O K several] of going all over the place.And half the reason is I’m not really sure myself of just what it is I’m trying to do. I know cleaning up the border is something we can do that has a positive and beneficial out come for the environment and the Border Patrol.How do I link that with helping shore up Mexico’s political structure,I don’t know but I believe it does but I just can’t articulate how. Education,I know once a person goes to the border with us they come back with more knowledge about the border and are able to form a more intelligent opinion,especially my Tidy Whitey Tea Party friends how have serious concerns about the border has do I only the threat they see aint the threat I see and the threat I see seems a lot more threatening then there threat and with the election fast approaching I think,no I know we have a image problem,we look like a bunch of White Boys from Arkansas and when it comes to the border we sound like it to [no offense to Arkansas].So here I am again all over the place with my Tidy Whitey Tea Party friends thinking I’m a nut.

    So with my limited experience and knowledge of the border and Mexican politics [vast knowledge compared to most][how many have the slightest idea how Vladimir Villegas is] maybe I would like to educate using border clean up as a vehicle to get people to the border so they can see for them selves.I have this new web-site and I started to write in It Aint What You Think but it’s just going to take time and every time I start I wonder all over the place but I have it in Save to Draft so maybe I’ll put it together soon.

    I am Glad to hear from you and I would like to hear more,this soap box is your soap box.

    It was great to meet you tonight. I guess your OK. As a Hispanic that grew up 20 miles from the border and visit relatives that live on the border I find that times have really changed. We could swim in the river and hang around on the shore with no worries 30 years ago. Those days are gone.

    I used to love to have the agents chase me back across when they saw us hanging on the American side…. little did they know that we were legal residents visiting my uncles farm in Mexico. If we tried that today we would get shot on the Mexican side.

    We do need to clean it up on both sides and stop the drug and human trafficking.
