People entering the U.S. illegally from Mexico are believed responsible for more than one-third of human-ignited wildfires in Arizona over a five-year period, according to a government report that could stoke congressional debate over illegal immigration.

Sorry officer, I heard howling, thought it was a coyote captured in my flame-flickered scope, so I shot it, so it was an Illegal, huh?  That's too bad.

Here's what I take away from it:

...that could stoke congressional debate over illegal immigration...

So the thousands of crimes committed by these criminals every year, the leeching off our social programs that they never pay into but that causes our tax burden to increase every year and the employment that they take away from actual citizens isn't going to cause any heart palpitations on the part of our elected officials...but burn down a tree and whoa Nelly, we're pulling out all the stops now!

Not just any trees, look at Texas, wrong party affiliation going up in smoke, the leftists never have been consistent in their illogical thought process, this is another example of that.

  The killer for me in this story is that my wife had been howling all summer about it bein illegals that were responsible for the fires and I kept sying that she had taken leave of her senses. Now by the end of the day I'll be having crow along with my Pumpkin pie!!

I usually just tell the kids "I was less right".
