EXCUSE # 10:
MY DOG, CAT, IGUANA ATE MY MINUTEMAN ID.
Yeah. Mine too. But I went down to the border and they had a magic machine that made a new one for me. It’s AMAZING! You’ve got to see it for yourself!
EXCUSE # 9:
IT’S TOO HOT/COLD/RAINY/DRY UP THERE IN WINTER/SUMMER.
Uh huh. Well I heard a guy named Juan say that Minutemen were WOOSIES. He likes it when there’s nasty weather. It’s easier to cross the border and bring his load of drugs to YOUR neighborhood. Yeah. And he said your mother wears army boots too!
MY SPOUSE WON’T LET ME BECAUSE IT’S TOO DANGEROUS!
A good one. 25 Americans are killed every day by drunk illegal alien drivers. Stay home. Don’t go anywhere. You just never know. We have logged 135,000 man hours without a single injury or incident. I’ll take those odds any day over driving on CA roads.
GAS PRICES ARE TOO HIGH
Well if there weren’t so many illegal aliens in this country buying gas with your hard earned tax dollars then the demand for the stuff would decrease and the price would go down! Want cheaper gas prices? Start by impacting the demand! Remember the “Day Without an Illegal?” No traffic, no smog. Now imagine that EVERY day. Can anyone spell $1.99 a gallon?
I LIVE TOO FAR FROM THE BORDER
Good news! Not to worry! The border is on its way to you. In a few months or years you’ll have a front row seat!
ITS NOT MY JOB
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”-Edmund Burke
I CAN’T AFFORD IT
Yup. Another classic. Someone else will do it. Don’t worry. My first MM muster I watched a guy eat cold stew from a can because he didn’t have enough money to buy a can of Sterno AND food. He still shows up. Securing the border is just that important. So what’s your excuse again?
I’M NOT MUCH INTO CAMPING
If your idea of roughing it is a hotel without room service then do we have a deal for you! Some members actually go to hotels! With room service! Scratch off one excuse!
I’M TOO OLD!
Yup. Right again. Stay home. Our oldest active member is 84 and our youngest is 18. They’ll save the country for your grandkids. No problem.
EXCUSE #1 (drum roll please)
IT’S NO USE. WE’LL NEVER SECURE THE BORDER ANYWAY…
Tell that to the thousands of felons, drug smugglers, rapists, gang bangers, thieves and human traffickers that have been caught thanks to our efforts not to mention the millions of dollars in drugs seized. You’re an American. No excuses. We have a rich history of stepping up and doing the job the government refuses to do. What would of happened if that little band of men had used these excuses in 1776?
SEE YOU AT THE BORDER!
March 28th to April 27th 24/7. BE THERE OR BE OVERRRUN.
