Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.

Per source, Chris Johnson's two-year deal has a base value of $8 million, with another $1 million available in incentives based on yardage.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:40 PM) He does a lot of things well, but isn't talented enough. Johnson has breakaway ability still and Ivory is man beast running the football
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (16 April 2014 - 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 05:49 PM) Last year they stuck to their board
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 06:27 PM) if they sign him I think that means they look to take a CB round 1
2JBallar01 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 06:32 PM) “@AdamSchefter: RB Chris Johnson's 2-year deal with Jets has a team option in it for year two. Jets have option to pick up year two at $4M in February 2015.”

SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Texas law enforcement officials say several Mexican drug cartels are luring youngsters as young as 11 to work in their smuggling operations.

Steven McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, told Reuters the drug gangs have a chilling name for the young Texans lured into their operations.

"They call them 'the expendables,'" he said.

McCraw said his investigators have evidence six Mexican drug gangs -- including the violent Zetas -- have "command and control centers" in Texas actively recruiting children for their operations, attracting them with what appears to be "easy money" for doing simple tasks.

"Cartels would pay kids $50 just for them to move a vehicle from one position to another position, which allows the cartel to keep it under surveillance to see if law enforcement has it under surveillance," he said.

"Of course, once you're hooked up with them, there's consequences."

McCraw said 25 minors have been arrested in one Texas border county alone in the past year for running drugs, acting as lookouts, or doing other work for organized Mexican drug gangs. The cartels are now fanning out, he said, and have operations in all major Texas cities.

This month, "we made an arrest of a 12-year-old boy who was in a stolen pickup truck with 800 pounds of marijuana," he said. "So they do recruit our kids."

McCraw says the state of Texas is joining a program initiated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection called "Operation Detour," in which law enforcement officers meet with children and their parents in schools and at community centers to warn them about the dangers of what appears to be the easy money the Mexican drug gangs offer.

Law enforcement officers say children are less likely to be suspects than adults, are easily manipulated by relatively small sums of money, and face less severe penalties than adults if arrested.

Last month, Texas officials released a report indicating Mexico-based drug gangs are intent on creating a "sanitary zone" on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande, and are "intimidating landowners" in south Texas into allowing them to use their property as "permanent bases" for drug smuggling activity.


Its nice to know our children are being called expedable

I would not say French, Iranian, Italian ECT... are ours either. But when American Children are being targeted to smuggle drugs into the US and being called disposable there is a problem. Time to secure the border. Bringthe troops home and put them @ the border. They wont have jobs if they come back now.

Does it honestly matter what race or nationality they are? I believe the point of the article is to show how badly we need border security. The people sending anyone into our country illegally need to be executed just like the Americans helping them and harboring them also need to be executed. No arrests. No trials. On the spot executions. Men. Women. Children (those old enough to know what they're doing is illegal). Doesn't make a difference to me. Call me cruel. Call me mean or heartless or whatever you'd like but it would send a clear message. As for the "international response" of shock, etc.....two words. f*** 'em.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

Just to be clear I do not value American childrens lives over anyother nationality. I just think you should take care of you own first. You have to have your priorities in line.

And your ideas to stop it are what? Just give in to the corrupt and violent? Or do you want more "diplomatic" solutions by our worthless president giving them free reign as he's been doing? That's really solved the issue hasn't it? At least my suggestion actually has merit where it would deter the scum from doing it in the first place if they know they'll be killed if they're caught. Your solution is what? Continue to do nothing? Or continue to waste american tax dollars by spending tens of thousands on deportation hearings only to have them return in a week IF they dont get granted asylum. sorry. That's been happening for decades and hasn't done a damn thing to stop the influx. Start killing people and you WILL see a decrease. Why are some of you sooooo against killing the people that are killing our people?

If those children came from families where the parent's weren't working for $40/day, they might not have an incentive to join drug cartels. Send them to college.

Have them come to this country LEGALLY & I won't have a problem with sending them to college. BUT.....obviously they must apply for permanent residency/citizenship in order to qualify for aid as one of the requirements for a student visa is that they have the funds to pay for their classes.

Do you expect us to educate the entire world for free? That's essentially what you're saying we should do. Educate every man, woman and child that cannot afford it themselves. Thinking about it on that large scale do you see how ridiculous of an idea that is? Let's have the American taxpayers educate everyone that wants it just because they can't afford it and because they come from a third world country.

And by the way......that $40 per day is worth 40 X's 13.33. Don't forget that so the $40 that you refer to is worth 533.20 pesos per day as of the current exchange rate. Costs are MUCH lower in Mexico in case you didn't know. Even when I was in the resort town of Playa del Carmen, things were cheap as hell. I was able to stay in a 4 star resort all inclusive for 8 days 7 nights with round trip airfare for $500. Trust me....while many do live in squalor there.......we have many living the same here. Why can't we take care of our own before taking care of everyone else? Do you realize how many military veterans are homeless and go hungry on a daily basis here in the US? There were at one time more than 400,000 homeless veterans. Thankfully that numbr has now dropped to approximately 135,000 today but there are another 1.5 MILLION in danger of becoming homeless due to poverty, lack of support networks, and dismal living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing.

Do you realize that only eight percent of the general population can claim veteran status, but nearly one-fifth of the homeless population are veterans.

Here's a quote for you.....

"veterans are far more likely to be homeless than non-veterans and part of it is because we're not providing services to them as they transition out of the service,"

"Part of it is because there is just not enough affordable housing," he added.

Can you guess who said that? You may just be surprized. (For those that don't want to look it up........it was our president himself while he was still a senator and on the campaign trail.)

Still think we should worry about the poor in other countries prior to our own? I would rather give free housing to each and every one of those homeless vets than pay for a single day of education for illegals. I'm sure those homeless vets would rather live once again in barracks type environments than on the streets if need be. I'm also willing to bet that we could build apartment complexes that could house each and every one of them for a cheaper price than it would cost to send the illegals to college for one year. Let's see....even at community college a full time (12 credits) education for in-county tuition is 4800 per year. Multiply that by 12 million. That's 57.6 BILLION dollars per year spent to educate the illegals that would be granted amnesty at a community college at today's rates. Do you really think the American public can afford that but can't afford to house the homeless of our own?

What is really scary is what will happen when we do end the war. We will have another Vietnam. We are at 10% unemployed and 20% underemployed now. Wait till we add all of the thousands of Military to the mix. We are fucked under this leadership and thought process.
