    Puzzle for all you smart people

    Puzzle One for you all: Imagine you are a 3 year old to 8 year old child. You are on your own without adults. You are asked to walk from Houston, Texas to Minneapolis, Minnesota on your own with no food or belongs to sustain you. Then you are asked to walk an addition 100 miles past Minnesota. Could you do it? How long would it take you as a 6 year old? That is the minimum distance these poor, helpless little ones have supposedly walked from Central America to the border of Texas, again, on their own. They didn't get lost. And they survived the journey without help (unless you buy in to the notion that a destitute out-of-work family run out of their homes by gangs and living in squalor somehow came up with $8,000 to $10,000 for EACH child to pay a coyote to take them to the border).

    Now, on the map below, Puzzle Two, you must start somewhere in the green area. Let's make it easy and start where green meets orange, so that you had the least mileage by not having to cover the whole green area. Just start where the green meets the orange. Blue, of course, is water. Your task is to figure a route from the green area to the purple area without going into the blue area and while avoiding towns and cities in the orange area. The black line is the distance from the nearest town to Mexico's southern border that touches the green area to Laredo, Texas, one of the CLOSEST purple towns. 1220 miles across desert and mountains with no equipment or food or help.

    If orange had stopped these innocents where orange touches green, problem would not have occurred. However, what six year old do you know who could walk 1220 miles (minimum), probably more like 1500 miles on their own without dying? How many days would it take for a 6 year old to walk 1220 miles without help, directions, food, sun protection, etc.? That dog just don't hunt.


    I don't think the truth is being given to us, folks. Someone created and assisted this, and the media should be figuring out who it is.

    MSN News:
    As US lawmakers grapple with ways to slash spending, many were shocked to learn authorities are spending $250 to $1,000 per day to care for each minor apprehended crossing the US border.

    More than 57,000 unaccompanied children, mostly from Central America, have been caught entering the country illegally since last October.

    A year ago, this thread would have received 5 or 10 comments. I believe the new site has killed some of the interest.

    The site is very slow now. I think people are tired of hearing about the illegal immigrants and no one in the U.S. Government seems to want to do anything to solve the problem. People that voted for hope and change finally see that the present administration is inept and corrupt. Every time an investigation starts, all the emails have vanished, the computers have crashed and nobody heard, saw or remembers a thing. That's my vent for the day. Have a good weekend.
