'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Friday, March 1, 2013, 8:57 p.m.
 

Recently I noticed a T-shirt with writing on the front that said, and I quote: “25 years ago we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash and Bob Hope. Now we have Obama, no cash, and no hope.” It was not hard to see as I was wearing it.

Needless to say, I am not a fan of President Barack Obama. However, his popularity remains fairly high and that gives me pause to wonder.

His three recent appointments, CIA director, secretary of State and secretary of Defense, could otherwise be called “Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest.”

The price of gas is at the highest level for this time of year ever. Have you been to the grocery store lately? Jobs, unemployment, medical costs — people are really hurting. Obama cannot blame this predicament on the prior administration as he was the prior administration.

He has no clue, but I understand his golf game is improving.

When Obama gives a speech, he reminds me of Benito Mussolini. He will state something that he thinks is profound, then stop talking, turning his head askance as if in smugness, waiting for the cheers from the liberal media.

Apparently, there is a disconnect on his popularity. He seems to be a pretty nice guy, but then so was Jimmy Carter.

Enough said.
