President Obama has followed 'the letter of the law', as President he has deported more illegal immigrants than any other President and still got the Hispanic -American vote because Obama does it humanely and in consideration of the families involved and respect to the other countries of origin.

You forgot about the liberal lawyers who will be arguing for the turtles rights.
Turtles have just as much right to exist just on age alone. They've been around a lot longer before human ancestors chose to climb out of the primordial ooze millions of years ago.

BTW, nitwit, these codes are a Bush holdover!!
Rand Paul Mocks Obamacare For ‘Turtle Bite’ Diagnostic Codes Ordered By The Bush Administration
""n Monday, several news outlets highlighted comments that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) made to the Iowa Republican Party earlier this month in which he mocked an Obamacare provision for being burdensome and silly. Paul ridiculed the health law for forcing doctors to use 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes for describing Americans’ injuries to the government, including for “injuries sustained from a turtle” and “walking into a lamppost.”
The new codes do, admittedly, exist. There’s just one problem with Paul’s claims — they were adopted by the George W. Bush administration, long before Obamacare was even being debated.
Paul is referring to the transition from the ICD-9 — the current system of medical code classifications that originated from the World Health Organization (WHO)— to the far more detailed ICD-10. That’s a change that was mandated by the Bush White House in its waning days and is reflective of changing international standards for coding care. Many countries have been using the updated codes for over a decade.
In a press release from August 15, 2008, Bush’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) wrote that it had issued rules to implement “a long-awaited proposed regulation that would replace the ICD-9-CM code sets now used to report health care diagnoses and procedures with greatly expanded ICD-10 code sets, effective Oct. 1, 2011.”"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
You nitwits, you and Emaam, fell hook, linee, and sinker for this one.
Turns out it was a Bush policy.
Making you the idiot again. You just attacked your hero, thinking it was OBama who came up with these codes.
Stupid is as you nitwits do.
I'm lovin' it!!
Stupid libturd doesn't know what "proposed" means. Icd-10 isn't being used in the u.s. right now, stupid.

But I can tell you there are some conservatives on other threads who laugh at the injuries suffered by the troops. Apparently the dividing line is their politics... and these 'nice' people haven't served a day in their life.
They're more interested in the capitalistic mantra of cons!
Boy, don't make me take my belt off and whip you. I told you to respect your elders.

You pretend to have military experience. So, I'm going to ask you again:

Were you one of the frauds that pretended to be Vietnam veterans in the so-called Vietnam Veterans Against the War and slandered the real veterans with lies?

People love turtles, thus Turtle Man on the Animal Channel. Iyi-yi-yi-yi.

Weird how some species are fair game while others are protected to the hilt and beyond.

Long ago there was restaurant called Droulliard's which was just off I-75 between Detroit and Toledo that prepared fresh caught snapper deep fried and of course soup. OMG it was special.

Well, that place has been closed for a while__I guess they ran out of turtles.

BTW that place is in the same area where many now think Hoffa's body was dumped.

Maybe Jimmy ended up as turtle food.

That would explain why there are no pictures of the body. Personally, I hope the seals killed him.

".... SPIEGEL: The German government was convinced that "Curveball" would not be used in the now famous presentation that then US Secretary of State Colin Powell gave in 2003 before the United Nations Security Council.
Drumheller: I had assured my German friends that it wouldn't be in the speech. I really thought that I had put it to bed. I had warned the CIA deputy John McLaughlin that this case could be fabricated. The night before the speech, then CIA director George Tenet called me at home. I said: "Hey Boss, be careful with that German report. It's supposed to be taken out. There are a lot of problems with that." He said: "Yeah, yeah. Right. Dont worry about that."
SPIEGEL: But it turned out to be the centerpiece in Powell’s presentation -- and nobody had told him about the doubts.
Drumheller: I turned on the TV in my office, and there it was. So the first thing I thought, having worked in the government all my life, was that we probably gave Powell the wrong speech. We checked our files and found out that they had just ignored it.
SPIEGEL: So the White House just ignored the fact that the whole story might have been untrue?
Drumheller: The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy. Right before the war, I said to a very senior CIA officer: "You guys must have something else," because you always think it's the CIA. "There is some secret thing I don`t know." He said: "No. But when we get to Baghdad, we are going to find warehouses full of stuff. Nobody is going to remember all of this."..."
You almost answered the question of where our intelligence came from, after Bill Clinton gutted the CIA with his human rights purge and Bush taking over with no foreign intelligence capabilities to speak of.
Germany is one of the countries giving the US intelligence on Iraq.
That intelligence was given to Vallerie Plame to verify, as is exactly what her job description reads. Valerie Plame verified that intelligence. Thus, this is what the president had to go on.
But, you accidentally stumbled onto the REAL reason for ousting Saddam Hussein. Just how do you think it was that Germany had such detailed intelligence gathering capabilities in Iraq?
Do you think that they being the single largest contractor rebuilding Saddam Hussien's war machine and being paid with money Saddam was stealing from the UN's oil-for-food scam would be motivated to give to the US any information that would keep the sanctions against Saddam Hussein current and the money stolen from the UN's oil-for-food scam continually being given to them?
It was Vallerie Plame's job to verify this intelligence.
Now, I can't lay all the blame on Vallerie Plame. After all, she was working in the CIA, and when Bush took office Bill Clinton had gutted the CIA to nothing. So, she really had nothing to use to verify the bad intelligence from (among a total of three countries giving intelligence to Vallerie Plame)Germany.
Damn. If you keep stumbling around here, you're eventually going to stumble across the facts, just like you just did.
Whatever
