FOD T-214

Golf Count:  108

As Obama golfs and has fruitless meetings with John Boehner,  a military veteran is chained to his bed in a jail cell in Mexico -
The reason might seem ludicrous. Hammar took a six-decade-old shotgun into Mexico. The .410 bore Sears & Roebuck shotgun once belonged to his great-grandfather. The firearm had been handed down through the generations, and it had become almost a part of Hammar, suitable for shooting birds and rabbits.
But Mexican prosecutors who looked at the disassembled relic in the 1972 Winnebago motor home dismissed the U.S. registration papers Hammar had filled out. They charged him with a serious crime: possession of a weapon restricted for use to Mexico’s armed forces.
And what is our government doing to free an innocent American?  Our own Customs and Border Protection agents told Hammar that it was legal to take the gun.   They had him fill out paperwork and pay a fee, then sent him on his way  where he was taken into custody for possessing the gun that our government had just cleared.

Meanwhile,  Loyola University Medical Center just performed a FREE kidney transplant for an illegal immigrant.  I know WWII veterans that can't afford their medication, much less hospitalizations, but illegals are getting free transplants.  I won't even delve into where that organ came from and which legal American citizen didn't get life saving surgery because Jorge thinks that American tax payers should fund his health care.

FWIW, there's a petition on the White House website to get the federal government involved in freeing Hammar.

Knowing how ineffective our govt. is, and how corrupt the Mexican govt. is, IMO the best thing to do is take up a collection. Once there's a few thousand in the pot he'll be set free PDQ.
