Border patrol gave me and the man the up down on the way back from Arizona this weekend. We were asked all kinds of questions and then they visibly searched the cab of the truck by peering in while giving us the raised eyebrow.

I don't know how to discuss politics at all. So any of my blathering can be written off as "talking out of my ass"...
