    FBI: Violent crime up in 1st half of '06

    The FBI has no explanation for the continued rise since 2005 except to say that:

    << Department officials have cited as possible reasons >> . . . . << children of the baby-boom generation entering the years when individuals are most likely to commit crimes. >>

    When PC prevails, we look to the demographics stemming from the offspring of legal citizens born from 40 to 60 years ago, many of whom were the issue of, and raised by the 16,353,659 "America's Greatest Generation" who served their country in the armed forces from 12/07/41 to 12/31/46.�

    � The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2007, Page 13

    Our nation's 'porous' borders have had NOTHING to do with it.

    • Right On, General!

      Even those two articles understate the real dammage that is being done to this country by Illegal Aliens. Oh, pardon me, that's "undocumented immigrents".

      I will see that all of my "liberal" friends get a copy.

      By the way, our new governor believes is getting them out of jail and giving them driving licenses. The party is only starting here in good old Beantown.

      • w-w-c, the way you speak about your incoming governor-elect Patrick, one would think he was Deval, "El Diablo."

        What'd ya expekt of a Clinton appointee who was labeled a "zealot" by a NY prison warden for complaining (among other things) that its basketballs were underinflated. If the color of your skin indicates that you can jump, an underinflated basketball constitutes cruel and unusual (maybe even sadistic) punishment.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deval_Patrick

        As for him having the Commonwealth issuing drivers licenses to the illegals, the above article states that the feds may have pre-emptively made that goal unattainable.

        What concerns the General even more than El Diablo letting them out, is a week ago Wednesday's announcement by the U.S. Mint that could find the BOP inviting YOU in (for up to 5 years), w-w-c, should you liquify a penny;

        http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061214/ap_on_bi_ge/mint_coins

        or try to leave the country with more than $5.00 in nickels and pennies in your possession;

        http://biz.yahoo.com/fool/061219/116654296513.html?.v=1

        While you might be a rabid Celtics fan, the chances are you can't jump, so spending as much as 5 years playing with underinflated basketballs as a guest of the BOP doesn't strike the General as being a crimp in your physical activities/style.

        But if you're thinking of giving your grandkids a shiney new penny for Christmas, for goodness' sake, don't also show 'em how to use a blowtorch.

    • Poor proofing by the General. He omitted the last digit in the referenced Almanac's page number.

      It should read Page 135, NOT Page 13.

      Sorry.
