media has certainly given Obama a pass for his foolishness.This president
watched the numbers grow and failed to take action when there were 8,000
children. Now we have 57,000, with a forecast of 120,000.Contrast
that with the quick action of the Obama administration when he discovered that
ICE had conducted a worksite raid in March of 2009. It was a legitimate raid and
netted over 40 illegal aliens working at that company in Bellingham,
Washington.Within two weeks Obama had given work papers to all the
workers (Please forgive us for arresting you for working here illegally. Here
are work permits.) and written up the ICE agents who were enforcing the law.Selective enforcement at its worst.
Obama vacations in times of crisis=good! Congress which have been rendered
irrelevant by Obama's illegal executive orders (as defined by the SCOTUS)
takes a vacation=bad!
Heck, Congress has been on vacation for at least six years now.Nothing new here.Might even be a good thing.Can you
imagine the damage they could do if they were not on permanent vacation?
Jason Chaffetz is on vacation with a few senators at Lake Powell. He obviously
doesn't care about illegal immigration.King Boehner even
admitted, that he won't even touch the illegal immigration topic until
after the midterms. Time to get ourselves a new Congress.
Haven't we had enough tea? Time for some coffee.. Black! To wake ourselves
"Please forgive us for arresting you for working here illegally. Here are
work permits."Kind of like when Joe Barton apologized to BP CEO
Tony Hayward when BP was forced to set up a damage fund to pay for the Deepwater
I'm interested in how the right will spin this.
@FF41How will the right spin it?Well, the House has acted and sent a
bill over to the Senate.Obama has already said he won't sign it. What does the right need to spin?The ball is in the court of the
"Obama plays golf while children starve!" "Chaffetz
floats on houseboat while children starve!" Both of our
political parties have become clown shows.
How will Obama react to the bill the Democratic Senate sent him. Wait, they
never sent a bill, they recessed without one. The Republican house
did send a bill that dealt with the cause of this mess, Obama's waivers.
That's the first immigration bill that followed the will of the majority of
Americans. Unlike other bills that told us what we should accept.
"Is it just a coincidence that children are streaming across the border and
Congress has decided to go on recess?"______________________________It sure doesn’t look good
considering how House Republicans have been making so much noise about it
calling it “a humanitarian crisis.” Poor John Boehner. It must be
hard work trying to downplay Republican vs. Republican infighting over something
you would think they could for once compromise on.Excuse the
digression. For a moment I forgot this is Jay Evenson's
'lighthearted' side of the news.
Well that's what one does during a manufactured crisis, when the cameras
leave the sense of "the sky is falling" suddenly disappears.
Please keep in mind that Snowden was not the first one to warn the US of
government spying on it's own people. There was a protest by many Democrats
and Liberals when Homeland Security and the PATRIOT Act was in congress and up
for vote. They warn all of America that the government was out of control with
searching for terrorist activity. It is noted that Republicans believe strongly
in personal freedom and security. It was the Republicans who stood firm and told
people who opposed these bills to "Shut Up this is good for America".
Now Republicans are screaming foul and blaming everyone around them.
