My apologies to Kathy Mattea for the title.
Mexican big rigs are set to start rolling across the border into the U.S.A. this weekend.
That's right, MEXICAN tractor trailers.
For those of you with BDS who think that we at Wake Up America are absolutely in love with George W. Bush and can see no wrong in him, this is one of those instances where I take GREAT pride in showing you how wrong you are.
Because I personally am bent all out of shape over this, and have been as it's been developing.
Let's set the background just a bit with a visit to Worldnet Daily back in July:
Docs reveal plan for Mexican trucks in U.S.
Internal e-mails belie public statement, suggest aim to expand quietly

Despite claims to the contrary, a planned Midwest "inland port" with a Mexican customs office will not be restricted to railroad traffic, according to internal documents obtained by WorldNetDaily.
As WND has reported, Kansas City SmartPort plans to utilize deep-sea Mexican ports such as Lazaro Cardenas to unload containers from China and the Far East as part of the North American Free Trade Agreement super-highway plan.
The plan would include the hotly contested allowance of Mexican trucks on U.S. roads, WND has reported, but Tasha Hammes of the Kansas City Area Development Council has insisted the port will be restricted to railroad traffic.
I personally first mentioned the SPP back in January, here on this blogsite:
Talk radio is abuzz with calls for a Presidential pardon for the two border control agents who have been convicted of shooting this drug smuggler. I fully agree with this call for action by our President. The American people have no interest, by and large, in this on the sly agreement that we have with the Mexicans to create a North American Alliance like the European Union. The President is sitting back and ignoring the problem because he doesn't want to upset the Mexican government and damage relations in building the SPP. TOUGH SHIT.
Why isn't the dinosaur media all over this? It's the ONE thing the Bush administration has come up with that they're in favor of.
We need to win in the Middle East. Burn that into your minds, into your hearts. Failure to do so will result in problems the like of which we have never seen in this country. However, we also need to ensure that we don't hand ourselves, our nation, over into a situation that would change it in OTHER ways by creating a North American Continental governmental authority.
Right now, the SPP isn't in the forefront of "newsworthy" items. You have to dig for information on it, other than the official government site found here.
I also mentioned it here on one spree and I worked on together in February:
Not much is being said about the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, signed on March 23, 2005 by the heads of state of Canada, Mexico and the United States. As G. Gordon Liddy says, it came in under the radar. Seemingly harmless at a casual glance, what this does is begin an elimination of the borders between the U.S.A and our neighbors to the north and South, Canada and Mexico.
Europe has already done something similar to this, calling it the European Union, with the introduction of the Euro as a form of currency tradable across the continent amongst its member nations. Are we ready for the Amerio? I don't think so.
Well folks, it's here. Not with grand political speeches, not with thunderous fanfare, not with days of ceremonies celebrating and leaders congratulating themselves and each other on a "job well done." No. Our southern most border is about to disintegrate with the sounds of shifting gears and rubber on the road.
And I would dare say the majority of the American people don't even realize it yet.
Don't believe me? Think I'm talking out of my head? Listen to G. Gordon Liddy's interview with Teamster president Jimmy Hoffa, and then Liddy's interview with Dr. Jerome R. Corsi.
Need more? Are you starting to get irate yet? You SHOULD be mad as HELL. From WorldNetDaily today.
Hoffa: Mexican trucks are disaster for U.S.
'This is a conspiracy of big business. They want to erase the borders'

A test program being launched by the Bush Administration to allow what could be thousands of Mexican trucks and their drivers unrestricted access to U.S. highways will be a "disaster," according to the chief of the Teamsters.
James Hoffa, whose union is working in court to halt the scheduled launch of the trucking test program this weekend, told G. Gordon Liddy on his radio talk show that the Mexican trucks and drivers will endanger U.S. lives, damage U.S. jobs, pollute the U.S. environment and benefit no one but big business.
"They want to make it so there's no regulation. You get in your truck in Monterey, Mexico, and drive to Montreal. You'd have to be on speed to do it," Hoffa said.
What can be done about this? Still checking on that, but we WILL be following this as it develops and trying to find a way to stop it.
Oh, and a special note for those of you with BDS who think that we are blind and can't think for ourselves and we're lost in LOVE with George W. and everything he does; while I am personally not yet ready to jump in with others following this issue to call for impeachment of the President (and yes, this actually COULD be an impeachable offense, unlike all this tripe that is spouted about impeachment over the war), I can't say that I'm far from thinking that way...
Watch yourselves on the road this weekend, folks, especially those of you in Texas and along the Mexican border. The highways are about to get a lot more dangerous.
Just a little heads up and a wake up call for those of you who have been asleep at the wheel from...
