    I sure do remember.

    I was kind of hoping for the same sort of live TV coverage, but I understand they're not there for entertainment.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    They will try Tuesday to get the rest out (four remain)- replacing air tanks along the route. Rains have stated again which could increase the amount of water in the cave.

    One little factoid I read is that when rescuers found the team, the coach was in the worst shape. The oldest player just turned 17 and they went in as part of the celebration. They had some snacks with them, which is likely what helped them survive. The coach would not eat any, and insisted the players eat.

    I'm not sure I agree with this. The first rule of rescue is keep yourself safe. The coach can't die and leave his team without their leader.

    There have been unconfirmed reports that they brought out the healthiest ones first- to see if they could make the difficult trip. Coach to be one of the last ones to go.

    Well, coach used to be a monk so I'm fairly certain he knew what he could handle. I don't think I could eat when hungry kids were sitting there.

    No, they took out the weakest first. I just read a whole article on it. It makes sense. Ya can't let them get any weaker or they may not be able to make it out.
