Interwesting...you know...that could pose some environmental problems. Perhaps we should infiltrate Australia, and mandate some regulations on carbon footprinting of swamp boats.
Too much sand displacement, known to cause salinity changes resulting in hypersalinity due to restricted water flow, could further perpetuate sea level risings, now attributed to all the climate change resulting from the nasty harvesting of natural resources ...like coal.
Please writ yer congressional persons so they may alert the US EPA as quickly as possible, so that they may stagnant Australia's economy as well.

In other news,$30 billion more for border security, one agent every 1000 feet. That's some right-winger's idea of "less government".
That's just more l.l.w. talking points. Border security is a fundamental function of government.

Ya mean they don't oppose the bill because the bill grows the government; because its going to add $30 billion to the credit card or $30 billion in more taxes?
Well, I guess they haven't been Taxed Enough Already after all.
Effective border security should save money in many other programs.

Why don't we make immigration not based on family units or quotas but based on need for workers?
Why don't we follow the current pattern of slipping fifty years BACKWARDS and return the the quota systems. Only this time, include southern northern continental border countries.
THEN, reform the social welfare programs and demand lazy Americans do the WORK to EARN the fwee givverment hand outs they solely exist upon.

The Dutch police are to have an Unmanned Aerial Services (UAS) unit, Justice Minister Ivo Opstelten has said in a letter to parliament. According to the centre-left D66 opposition party, the Netherlands will be the first country with such a unit, and the privacy of citizens is at risk.

Last year, the police operated 81 flights over the Netherlands with drones, unmanned mini-planes equipped with day and night cameras. The present flights are only the start of the use of drones in the Netherlands, says Opstelten.“In the future, an increase in the number of flights with unmanned planes is expected."

A formal UAS unit is currently being set up. In preparation for this, some members of the police force are being trained and examined on the Basic Training Rotary Craft UAS pilot service course at the National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) in Amsterdam, Opstelten writes.

D66 wants a separate act to regulate the deployment of drones in the Netherlands. MP Gerard Schouw said Friday on Radio 1 that the privacy of the citizen is at risk. The special police unit being set up specifically to steer the unmanned planes in the air is “a world first,” according to Schouw.

Opstelten says the law does not need to be amended for this, because existing regulations, for example in the area of privacy, would be sufficient. But according to Schouw, there are no rules in the Netherlands for the use of the pictures taken by the drones.

The D66 MP points out that the word drone does not appear anywhere in Dutch legislation. In the US, there are already states and cities with separate laws for the use of drones. Schouw wants to follow this example.

Activists from different groups marched to the US embassy in Pretoria on Friday protesting against President Barack Obama.

The large group marched along Francis Baard Street, singing and chanting anti-Obama slogans. One activist, on a truck mounted with a public address system, led the songs and slogans.

He shouted: "Free Palestine. Free Swaziland. Free Zimbabwe. Down Obama, down!"

The group initially gathered at the Caledonian Stadium before embarking on the march.

Some of the protesters' placards read: "Obama, stop supporting dictators in Africa. No oil here, move on.

"100 years of genocide in Iraq. War in 100 countries. Rogue State."

A young boy's poster read: "No you can't spy on me".

Many protesters wore orange overalls and black hoods. Others were dressed in Young Communist League red regalia.

The league's national secretary was with other officials in front of the protesters.

A large banner with Obama's face had the words: "Meet the world's top assassin". The banner also had a picture of Obama behind prison bars.

Why do you want an immigration bill?
The immigration problem isn't going away. There are just too many here with deep roots. The pathway to citizenship covers more than a 10 year timespan and the solution to securing the border is, I think, a good one.

Whether it's the most fair solution - allowing illegal immigrants to get preference over those who are still waiting their turn just to come here - is the objection most have as well as illegal immigrants taking the low-skilled jobs away from American citizens.

But, to me, it's better immigrants earn their citizenship and start contributing than remain under the radar.

Most Republicans do want some kind of bill. Others know it's political suicide to fight any attempt to solve the problem.

If border security every 1000 feet is enforced by this administration, it will probably appease most Americans who would otherwise be opposed to the pathway to citizenship solution.

It's a big problem and no one really knows how to solve it. Especially me.

Your thoughts?

Physicians are already turning down Medicare patients by the droves. Too much costly and time-consuming bureaucratic paperwork.

Triple the amount of costly and time-consuming paperwork under Obamacare.

You supported the wrong president with the wrong agenda to solve the health care problem - and the nation's problems. You and others will eventually have to come to accept that.

In fact, all Galt suggested was that women were being treated as second-class citizens because abortion clinics are not held to the same standards as other outpatient surgical facilities.

There is no such right, but that's another story.

FORMER United States President George Bush and his wife Laura are expected in Livingstone today for a private visit.
The former President left Texas yesterday and is expected to arrive at Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport Zambia at 07:00 hours.
Mr Bush’s visit is meant to support the Red and Pink Ribbon campaign, which aims at raising awareness on breast and cervical cancer.
According to a programme released by the Bush Institute, Mr Bush, together with Zambian officials and volunteers from the institute, will paint the Mosi-oa-Tunya Clinic.
The clinic will help in the detection and treatment of breast and cervical cancer.
Tomorrow, Mrs Bush will visit Songwe village in Livingstone.
First Lady Christine Kaseba is expected to join Mr and Mrs Bush for the official opening of the clinic on Monday.

Improve border security first and then discuss the issue of illegal aliens already here.

Hiring thousands of extra border guards does not necessarily improve security.
