'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 8, 2013, 8:57 p.m.
 

NASCAR has announced that its April 13 Sprint Cup Series race in Texas will be renamed and sponsored by the NRA. OK. This should be the end of it, but once again, the left has made something it does not agree with into some sort of controversial issue.

If I did not understand the progressive movement and the mainstream media so well, I would be dumbfounded as to why this is an issue. If NASCAR named a race the “Prius 500” or “Wind Energy Works 450,” the anti-American left would be fine. But, since the left hates the NRA almost as much as it hates God, it has made the comparison of law-abiding citizens to a serial killer.

The NRA had nothing to do with Sandy Hook or any other mass shooting, not to mention that NASCAR, conservative principles and the Second Amendment go hand-in-hand.

This has nothing to do with NASCAR or the NRA. This has to do with the progressive movement and its desire to control all of society.

Now, since the leader of the soon-to-not-be-free world is their progressive deity, leftists think the entire country believes in their autocratic European model. We do not. We will never let them destroy this country. Don't tread on me.
