They let any Cuban come in, because of Castro.
Not a one of these nitwits questions why we will let any Cuban who makes it stay here.
If Mexico goes Communist, we'd open our borders to Mexicans for political purposes.
And these same idiots would support it.

Scientist: South Florida Will Be Water by End of Century
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.– Scientists and economists Tuesday warned lawmakers of consequences Florida faces from climate change, including more destructive hurricanes and a rising sea level, but they also said the state could be a leader in reducing global warming.
Harold Wanless, chairman of the University of Miami's Department of Geological Sciences, predicted a 1.5 foot rise in sea level in 50 years and a three- to five-foot increase by the end of the century.
"Three feet's going to get messy," he said. "Four feet becomes extremely difficult to live in South Florida and five feet probably impossible."

And that FOX report is 6 years old. It's gotten worse since then.
"Broward County Plans Ahead For South Florida Rising Sea Levels"
" The Broward County Commission began preparing for rising sea levels Tuesday by enacting a climate change plan, the Sun Sentinel reports.
To the dismay of developers, the plan would impact future building plans, energy use, and green living to prepare for what scientists widely believe to be rising sea levels. By 2060, the commission said, residents in coastal communities could be swimming at their door steps.
The commission hopes to avoid future problems like flooding, sewer failure and contaminated drinking water by implementing the blueprint now.
Miami-Dade County would also be heavily impacted by rising sea levels. Scientists believe that by 2030, oceans could be up to 7 inches higher, according to the Southeast Florida Climate Change Compact. By 2030, this could be up to 2 feet. The projections were calculated by utilizing Key West’s tidal data from 1913 to 1999."

I think every other witnesses after Jeantel are all irrelevant. They're all after the fact. The case will be made by establishing the aggressor. Only one witnesses testimony does that &, it's Jeantel. Even though most of the witnesses, all besides one puts Zimmerman on top & Trayvon screaming help, it doesn't really say much because, the momentum of the fight can change with the wind. Trayvon probably was on top for part of the fight, Zimmerman also was probably on top for part of the fight. I think the real problem Zimmerman has is, he initially said that, he was on the way back to his car &, that he wasn't following Martin but, facts prove otherwise that Infact, he wasn't on his way to the car just by where the altercation took place, 30yds from Martins fathers home. Also Zimmerman said he was looking for a street sign but, the altercation took place in the back of the complex. There are no street signs in the back of the townhouse complex. Everyone else who testified was nomore than spectators after the fact of the purpose of the case!

Wonderful, more snooping into our private financial affairs.
For our own protection, of course.
I'd rather have a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau acting to protect my own best interests by safeguarding my personal credit information than Big Banksters using M.E.R.S. to confiscate my mortgage and financial records in order to defraud me of my private property. "In the previous two parts of this series I have recounted the multiple frauds perpetrated by MERS: it defrauded counties out of billions of dollars of reporting fees, it defrauded homeowners by destroying documents that provide a clear chain of title -- facilitating its foreclosure frauds, and it defrauded securities investors by failing to adhere to PSAs (pooling and servicing agreements)-- making their securities invalid. Now, in order to cover the trail of deceit MERS and the banks are stealing homes as fast as they can in the hope that no one will notice the fraud. Meanwhile, they are destroying real estate values and adding to the headwinds that are pushing our economy into the first great depression of the 21st century.

They sure are a trusting bunch then.
Congress gets the same Intel as the Executive Branch.
Only when it comes to attacks on embassies in Benghazi and winning an election does the Executive Branch change the word "terrorists" in the CIA reports to "a video".
So tell me... how should they have done this so called 'research,' son?

You claim Congress gets the same stuff as bushie boy, yet you can't support it... just like CRA.

More of your word games??

"Under those 1994 accords, Washington agreed to stop allowing Cubans caught at sea to enter the U.S. In 1995 the U.S. government began its "wet-foot, dry-foot" policy that allows anyone who makes it to shore to stay, while those caught at sea are turned back."

If they make it to FL, they can stay. End of story.

What's so different about Cubans?? Why aren't Mexicans allowed the same status?? They make it into the USA.

America's immigration policies have always been racist and ethnic.

For many years, we resisted allowing those from Eastern or Southern Europe to come here, but allowed northern Europeans to come here at will.

"Why Obama should run on the success of the stimulus
Everything you think you know about it is wrong: stimulus saved the US economy, and only Republicans stopped it working better.

"Over the next week, as Republicans gather for their national convention in Tampa, Florida, we can rest assured that the Obama epithet game will be in full effect. He's a tax-and-spender; he's an inveterate expander of federal power; he's weakened America in the world; he was born in Kenya and might be a Muslim (well, you'll only hear that if Republicans pull an Akin). What they likely won't hear is the truth about why the US economy remains in mediocre shape, and who is to blame for this distressing situation.

For that, most Americans would be wise to simply turn off the TV and pick up a copy of Michael Grunwald's exceptional new book, The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era. Grunwald, a correspondent for Time magazine, has written what is likely the single best book to date on the inner workings of the Obama presidency and the $800bn stimulus measure (or American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) that Grunwald persuasively argues is Obama's greatest political achievement.

That conclusion may seem odd to the casual observer of US politics. In the more than three years since it passed, the stimulus has been tagged as a boondoggle that exploded the debt and did precious little to turn around the country's economic malaise. It is derided en masse by Republicans and largely ignored by Democrats.

But, in exhaustive detail, Grunwald points out how everything you think you know about the stimulus is wrong. While the Recovery Act created 2.5 million jobs, stopped the country's economic hemorrhaging and launched a weak recovery, its long-term, transformative impact is the real story.

According to Grunwald, the stimulus measure was "the biggest and most transformative energy bill in history", and "the biggest and most transformative education reform bill since the Great Society". It was also a "transformative healthcare bill", the "biggest foray into industrial policy since FDR", the "biggest expansion of antipoverty initiatives since Lyndon Johnson", and – ironically, for a president oft-accused of raising taxes – the "biggest middle-class tax cut since Reagan". It rebuilt bridges and paved roads; weatherized and retrofitted homes; and spurred the move toward high-speed rail."

Again you prove your stupidity.
Galt's argument is that the border security will save money, not the immigration bill.
But border security is an expense, not income. There is no money to be made, it's just PORK for Repugnant States like AZ and yours.
CBO proves allowing immigration to go forward will shave close to $200 BILLION from the deficit over 10 years.
It would save even more if you nitwits weren't loading the bill with Repugnant PORK.
Thanks for being the stupidhead you are!!
Funny how the people you call illegals were living in the southwest long before white men came into the area.

What really appeals to nutcases like Snowden is publicity. IMO, if he is returned to the United States and becomes a party to a sensationalized trial, the publicity seeking lunatic fringe will be more inclined to follow in his footsteps. If no one cares about him and he is banished from the United States as a hated traitor, they may think twice.
