The blasts are taking place on an UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and Native American burial site.

Like other remote land that the border wall will bisect, many people are concerned with how the unnatural barrier will irreparably impact Organ Pipe's unique habitat.

Did you think you couldn't hate him more? Have a look at this. I would "rate this" at the right, "Horrifying" but there's no icon for that. I've told Rob time and again such an icon should be added, a 'smiley' face with mouth agape and eyes wide open and brows slanted down. I've even drawn it for him. But nobody ever listens to me.


I seems our dear leader is some kind of monumental sadist, as virtually every move he makes is designed to disturb, vilify, abuse, or kill somebody and why he is still in office is beyond me. To grab a line from "Guys and Dolls": "It all seems a horrible dream!"

"The idea that the secretary of (the) DHS could come to your community and say no laws apply here, what kind of rule of law is that?" Olivares said. "People should be outraged to know that Homeland Security can wield that kind of power."

I'm not sure how much more outrage the decent human heart can take.

This Nation Monument, which by the name "monument", alone, might suggest a small site, appears on this pdf map to measure roughly 25 miles by 25 miles in size. Not to trivialize the idea of the destruction that may occur by building a wall along the US border, we still should be wary of thinking that the monument is "being blown up" as the CBS News site headline states without a better description of what is actually occurring.
