    What I learned at the Alamo:
    Mexico got independence from Spain, opened their northern territory doors – Texas – to immigrants, the immigrants didn’t assimilate, too many came, restrictions didn’t work, a bunch of illegals got shot in the Alamo, then the masses of illegals triumphed and established a Republic……The Indians told the Spanish and Mexicans, what goes around, comes around.

    How much of the tens of billions in “aide” sent to Pakistan has been used to fund the Haqqania madrasa and its ilk to train current and future jihadists? Will our political leaders ever learn?
