@cyou299: Well...walls do work. Look at any high security prison. You will get an escape attempt from time to time but not many. You are correct that most drive through or arrive via air on visas then stay. This is all a part border security and the ports of entry must also be tightened. Other countries have secured borders, why can't we?posted @ Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 09:01
This Immigration Bill was never intended to pass. The President and Senate leadership wants to use it as an election issue in 2014. The measure will not pass the House and the Senate will not compromise with the House. If the bill doesn't pass the President willnuse this to they andnget a majority of Democrats innthe House. This is a very bad bill and is political theather.posted @ Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 08:56
Be cautious with this flood insurance. Thousands of people in Nebraska, Iowa Kansas and Missouri were flooded several years ago as the result of a miscalculation by the Army Corp. of Engineers. Massive flooding occurred down the Missouri River. People who had flood insurance filed and they were denied. The Ins. agency used all sorts of excuses. The most foolish was, "this was a man made flood." Read the fine print carefully. Water might be covered but what caused the waterm is mud damage covered? Use a fine tooth comb when reading the coverage. Remember, this is a government sponsored program.posted @ Tuesday, June 18, 2013 - 10:16
Ben, you assume people who had their guns stolen did nothing to keep them safe. Our home was burglarized, My guns as well as other items were in a safe. A Safe Ben! They stole the safe! One of my guns was used in a homicide in Kansas City. They beat on the safe for two days with sledge hammers to open it. My house was locked, The neighbors were alerted we were gone, my valuables were locked in a safe. What more could I have done? BTW, I developed latent fingerprints and caught one of the burglars who is doing 7 to 10 years. He is a pro and has been in and out of prison all his life.
We are returning to the Cold War. Put in and other world leaders understand the USA has a weak and inept President. The differences between the former KGB agent Putin and the Neighborhood organizer Obama is striking.posted @ Tuesday, June 18, 2013 - 09:21
Many older people did save and had a plan to be comfortable. But now we have extraordinary circumstances. The tremendous and unforceen above normal increases in food prices is one example. The outlandious explosion of fuel prices is another an example. We see the tremendous imcreases in electrify and according to our President, energy prices will, "necessarily skyrocket" under his plan. We will soon see terrible inflation of everything when the Fed. stops prirnting money. Some economist envision a small $25.00 candy bar. Older people have had to fight all our lives but we can't fight the runaway and distructive government policy.
The problem is, they don't choke! Look at the large number of people who respond favourably to the President and his administration. Look at the Obama bumper stickers still on cars. Listen to some of the "man on the street" interviews of bystanders who 'support the Pope because he is Jewish', Have no idea who the VP is, and have never heard ofnthe scandles going on in DC. They are. clueless.
The Europeans bought into the Man Mand Global Warming scam many years ago. Bureaucrats, Government officials and the media hammered the AGW myth. Governments mandated solar and wind generators and demolished or shut down their conventional generators. Government imposed a carbon tax and VAT to combat(?) AGW. They thought was to make energy more costly so people would conserve. The problem is that Green Energy could not supply reliable energy, and the poor and middle class could not afford it. Over 20,000 people died this past winter in Europe. All of this was brought on by ill conceived Government action based on a lie. We are making the same mistakes of Europe, why would we expect a different result?posted @ Monday, June 17, 2013 - 08:47

Thanks for the clarification. But...the problem is that the innocent person,- a person who has not been charged nor proven guilty of any crime whatsoever must prove innocence in court. The civil process is employed because the threshold of evidence is much less than in criminal court. The justice system is moving bassackwards.. No crime has been committed other than a person has a lot of money. There is the assumption that the person is a criminal but no proof. And all that legal money will be held in a property room, not being of benefit to the owner. This money could have been payment of a debit, sale of property, cashing of a check. The innocent person will have to responsed and prove innocence. Law Enforcement must prove the money was illegitimate rather than have the innocent person prove it was legitimate. The system is backwards and amounts to theft. I know a guy who earns about $10,000 a week as number 3 man of an international food corporation. Tom is cash only. He has never financed anything. What PC would an officer have to seize funds from Tom who has more money than you or I will ever see? Don't assume everyone with money is a drug dealer or criminal. Thanks for the comment.
Repudiated? By whom? The AG, The President, the former Sec.of State, The IRS head? Of course all this still persists because there are so many questions and the administration stonewalls. All they did is invoke the Sgt. Schultz Defense. As a Democrat I am sick at heart at what our party has become. You talked about nothing getting done, compare the bills passed in a bipartisan manner in the House as opposed to the Senate. Our Senate is a body of NO! Our Senate Majority Leader will not compromise nor form committees to reconcile disagreements between House and Senate Bills. It's all a matter of record. Remember, Richard Nixon resigned because some of his supporters bugged the DNC because of national security concerns during Viet Nam and the Cold War. Our President's people are bugging innocent Americans. We voted for this man because he was going to be different. I guess he is. Thanks for realizing you are a low information person. I enjoyed the exchange nevertheless.
1. Fast & Furious: A campaign to disregard federal gun laws and flow Mexico with high power weapons. The Justice Department and ATF were involved but information avout who authorised the scheme is still being stonewalled.
2. NSA political snooping on all Americans: Data mining and storage of telephone calls and I ternet activity in violation of the Constitution, without warrants and probable cause. Top Gov.Officials support this violation nobody knows the program and now there is information of political eavesdropping.
3. IRS targeting Comcervative Groups: There is serious bipartisan concure over this violation of the law. The head of the IRS didnt even know who was in charge of the investigation.
4. IRS sharing political information: Evidence now is surfacing that opposition political operatives are being given private Imformation. That is how Sen. Harry Reid about Romney's personal tax information.
5. Benghazi: Four Americans died, the Administration failed to respond to warning and failed to protect and the Sec. of State responded with the statement, "What Difference Does it Make?"
6. H&HS Shakedown: The secretary of H&HS is shaking down Insurance companies and tax preparation companies to donate money to promote Obama care. This is in violation of federal law known as Iran-Contra.
7. State Department Prostitution and Pedophilia: A looming scandal involving top diplomats and their involvement with prostitutes and child sex. High ranking State Department officials quashed investigations.
8. EPA selective enforcement: The EPA is taking an aggressive enforcement stand against conventional generators or fossil fuel producers, yet turn a blind eye to the death and pollution caused by Green energy producers.
I'm surprised you didn't know the birth certificate issue was never a real issue. Why do you want to dig up something already settled? Thanks for asking.

OK, First it was 2 terrorist plots that were thwarted (it was really only one) because of government spying on innocent Americans and now it's 20 plots. as the House digs deeper into the political intrigues of this shocking scheme, we will soon learn that 500 plots were discovered.

Why was he arrested? Did the officers see the crime? The story said she was in his house, has a home owner no property rights and must submit to an assault? Why wasmt she arrested for DV or assault? If we was 'drunk' he was in his own house!

Law enforcement should not be allowed to seize ANY personal property without a Court order. Many people have resorted to cash transactions because they have cut uo their credit cards or they wish to be a ghost because of government spying. To assume you have cash and are a drug dealer is terrible. Police should not be allowed to tow your vehicle and hold it for ransom because of a minor regulatory infraction. The Constitution protects people from government abuse yet it os ignored by government.posted @ Sunday, June 16, 2013 - 09:17
Are not doing anything??? The Many members of the other party tried to amend the disaster that is Obamacare but they were shut out. The House introduced over 30 jobs bills which were blocked by the Senate. The house is trying to prevent possibly 20 million illegals from gaining access to our country, Members of the House are holding committee meeting trying to get to the bottom of at least 6 major scandals in this administration. The administrations resorts to the Sgt. Schultz defence. One bipartisan group reported insurance rates will increase 88 percent in that state. The Presidents continues much of the Bush administration policies. You must be part of the 47 percent low information people.
Many Thanks. Correction noted.
it is odd that a wanted person could go for so long without capture. Most criminals are just that, criminal. If they do escape or run away, they will soon resort to their criminal ways, commit more crimes or call attention to themselves and get captured. This is very true in a sex crime. It's very off that this guy was able to live that ling without capture, espiciously when authorities were actively searching.posted @ Saturday, June 15, 2013 - 08:42

Why didn't all this NSA surveillance catch the Fort Hood killer when he was talking to AQ operatives? Oh...I forgot, this was Work Place Violance.

Do those in power now want to fix it? I don't believe so. It's likely that this will drag on and become an election issue. People will not remember this was a total Democrat sponsored bill and no amendments were allowed. The President and Senate will ''try" to fix It but those darn republicans are obstruction. The immigration will will never pass also and the House will be blamed. This is all designed to cause issues during the next election.
Thank goodness the court intervened that a life was more important than a H&HS rule. I worry now how this family will be treated by the government. This family showed the 'death panel' thinking of the H&HS director. Her statement, "some people live, some people die," is chilling. She could be talking about you or me. This family showed that government bureaucratese will get between a patient and the doctor(, I'll bet the IRS, ATF, FBI, H&HS, DOT, Dept. of ED. and all other federal agencies are ready to go after this family. This little girl and her family may have won the first battle, but the was against the people is not over.posted @ Friday, June 14, 2013 - 09:09

As a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I was little perplexed on reading Nick Carter?s book. It?s not like reading a book about Elvis Presley or The Beatles. I didn?t live through those moments. I didn?t see them in person. But as someone who has followed Nick?s career since I became a fan in 1998, not just in the Backstreet Boys, but as a solo artist, I?ve always thought we had a lot in common besides being the same age. read more
