After the U.S Senate passed a Bill to build a 700 mile fence between U.S and Mexico, Mr Fox spoke out against the Bill.

President Vincente Fox’s spokesperson told reporters that “The Mexican government strongly opposes the building of walls in the border area between Mexico and the United States.” Mexico pleaded with President Bush on Monday to veto a Senate proposal to build a fence to keep illegal immigrants out, saying it could backfire by making the border less secure.

It would make the border less secure????!!!! What about the wanted criminals from Mexico who have been walking over into the U.S? What about those illegals fleeing to Mexico after gunning down enforcement officers in the U.S?

Would Mexico allow people from Guatemala to walk over to their land? Did they send their military to stop them from crossing over? That is wrong but walking into the U.S is not? Pure hyprocrisy!

TV bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman hopes to work out a deal to avoid extradition to Mexico. Dog’s capture of Andrew Luster, who had fled the country during his trial on charges he raped three women, catapulted the 53-year-old bounty hunter to fame. Luster is now serving a 124-year prison term.

It was the case that blew Dog to fame and led to his reality show, and now he’s been arrested and faces an extradition hearing to Mexico for it.

What do we do with a guy who put a rapist behind bars? Extradite him to a corrupt country who respects no human rights? More.

In the village Paradise, Pennsylvania, a non-Amish, Charles Roberts entered an Amish school killing 3 girls and wounding others before killing himself. The gunman, carrying a shotgun and handgun, let the boys and some women go, before barricading himself in a school room.

What’s disturbing is it’s the latest of 2 other school incidents, the first on wednesday in Colorado, a man killing a 16-year-old girl and himself, and the second last friday, in Wisconsin, a 15 year-old boy killing a teacher.

Who is really to blame here?

Phil’s post responding to the accusation of compromise for money stated,

“I decided to continue primarily as a favor to Classic Media and my friends at Big Idea, who would have been in a major pickle if I had abandoned the project just a few weeks before the first air date.  (We didn’t find out about the need for the cuts until early August, about two weeks before delivering the first episode.)”

Again, why are people accusing Phil Vischer first? A post from Tim of Random Observations concludes this about NBC’s double-standard,

“Rock star desecrating famous symbol of the Christian faith? No problem. You are special, and God loves you? Not allowed.

NBC defended that the reason for the cuts were in order to reduce the DVD length episodes to 30 minutes. But Phil Vischer’s post explains that he was asked by NBC and Big Idea to modify the Veggie Tale episodes to half-hour segments in the beginning. In an article by WorldNetDaily he states,

“As a guy deeply involved with the project, I know that statement is false,” Vischer wrote on his own weblog. “We sent them our first episode for TV, which was already edited to EXACTLY the right length, and they rejected it because, at the end, Bob the Tomato said, ‘Remember kids, God made you special and he loves you very much.’ They demanded we remove that line. The show wasn’t too long, it was too religious.”

A day after NBC’s original defense, the Los Angeles Times wrote an article:

“After first blaming time constraints as the reason certain references to God were cut from a popular children’s television series, NBC on Friday acknowledged that the edits were made because the network did not want to appear to be advocating any religion.”

Although many Christians pointed to NBC’s hypocrisy by including Madonna hanging on a cross with a crown of thorns, NBC has fortunately decided to remove the scene.
