Huh? Let him die; was the republicans chant you liar. You're last question is just utter nonsense. So you agree with Douchebag? You've change your tune; you were the one who thought the children should stay. I have said from the beginning send them back.
Someone is calling for help with a loved one dying and you agree with Douchebag? You're a devil. I hope for your sake that you're not in a foreign country laying on the ground dying and someone demands that you speak Spanish. Do you realize what a dirtbag you are?
Thankfully most people are not like you, now go pray for your soul till your knees bleed.
So does this response mean you and your liberal friends WOULD pay for someone's lifelong catastrophic medical expenses on your own then?

It was hard to tell because you changed the subject.

I agreed with you about Doocy's comments. And suggested your town should have been called instead. It would have sent a good message to the rest of the country if you had been the first to pay more in taxes out of your own wallets.

My first response was that these children had to be fed and given shelter when they first crossed the border. But they need to be sent back to their parents. Even under worse conditions. The conditions here aren't so great for many of them either. Without their parents, much worse.

Russians like me. They said I can come home. Now, let's try this again....

I see nothing has changed here.
If Obama was complying with the law, this event would never have happened because they wouldn't even be here.
By the way, since we have enough work here to support a population of over 30 million illegal aliens, why do we even have a welfare program? Stop the welfare program and the illegal alien problem will fix itself.

... a penny for your thoughts.

Protesters converge on Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s fundraiser with private prison CEO
Members of several civil rights groups held a last-minute demonstration against Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) outside the $10,000-a-plate fundraiser that was mocked by comedian John Oliver earlier this week, New Times Broward Palm Beach reported.
Scott’s appearance at the Boca Raton home of GEO Group CEO George Zoley was reportedly protested met by members of Florida For All, immigration rights group Dreamers Moms and the Dream Defenders.
“I think that Zoley is the CEO of a prison that is seemingly getting away with egregious practices speaks to people’s sense of right and wrong,” Florida For All spokesperson Ana Tinsly told New Times.“I think people are very upset to find that Rick Scott has such a cordial relationship with this CEO.”

Sadly, he's extremely naïve when it comes to global matters and the realities of the world.

The same thing that happened the last time a plane full of jews was shot down over Ukraine. No war started then.

Will the Israelis just completely annihilate them? They have nowhere to go.

Yes, the tunnels were built to store rockets and protect Hamas--women, children, etc don't get to use the bomb shelter.
Enough of the fantasy tour
Hamas is being accused of killing Palestinians so Israel will be blamed. Can't put anything past terrorists who kill children in their own countries.

Authorities: Man kills 4 children, 2 adults in Texas shooting
http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/09/justice/texas-s...

At Least 194 Children Have Been Shot to Death Since Newtown

&#9726;127 of the children died from gunshots in their own homes, while dozens more died in the homes of friends, neighbors, and relatives.
&#9726;72 of the young victims either pulled the trigger themselves or were shot dead by another kid.
&#9726;In those 72 cases, only 4 adults have been held criminally liable.
&#9726;At least 52 deaths involved a child handling a gun left unsecured.

Additional findings include:
&#9726;60 children died at the hands of their own parents, 50 of them in homicides.
&#9726;The average age of the victims was 6 years old.
&#9726;More than two-thirds of the victims were boys, as were more than three-quarters of the kids who pulled the trigger.
&#9726;The problem was worst over the past year in the South, which saw at least 92 child gun deaths, followed by the Midwest (44), the West (38), and the East (20).
Among the 194 child gun deaths we analyzed, 17 took place in Florida. Seven were accidents, including three involving unsecured weapons in homes. "The children were covered in blood," a shaken witness told a reporter after toddlers in a Lake City home played with a gun and fatally shot an 11-year-old boy in the neck.

Florida's tally was second only to that of Texas, which saw 19 children killed over the last year. By comparison, the other two of the four most populous states, California and New York, saw 11 and 3 deaths, respectively. Already known for strict gun regulations, California and New York both passed additional restrictions after Sandy Hook. Texas, meanwhile, enacted 10 new laws deregulating guns

Heard a black Republican offer a simple solution - Obama should voluntarily resign the presidency and become the leader of the DNC.

Ironically, a lot of Democrats don't even want him to represent them or their party anymore.

Moving to the real world of Tea Party politics

Turns out Todd Akin isn t sorry after all for his legitimate rape comments and stands by them.

The former congressman, who lost the 2012 Senate race in Missouri, has written a book that Politico previewed on Thursday.

By asking the public at large for forgiveness, Akin writes in the book, I was validating the willful misinterpretation of what I had said.

Akin, a conservative Republican locked in a tight race with Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, said in a TV interview in summer 2012 that he believes pregnancy can be prevented by a woman involved in legitimate rape because the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.

The firestorm was intense, with criticism coming from top Republicans as well as Democrats. GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney called Akin s comments offensive and wrong and called on him to quit the Senate race. Akin apologized, saying he made a very, very serious error and noted he wasn t the first politician to suffer from foot in mouth disease.

But McCaskill capitalized on the comment in her campaign ads and on the trail, and she easily won a second term and defeated Akin by 16 percentage points.
According to Politico s account of the book, Akin basically is standing by his original comments and blaming the news media for his downfall.

My comment about a woman s body shutting the pregnancy down was directed to the impact of stress on fertilization. This is something fertility doctors debate and discuss, Akin writes. Doubt me? Google stress and infertility, and you will find a library of research on the subject.
Akin s Firing Back: Taking on the Party Bosses and Media Elite to Protect Our Faith and Freedom comes out July 15.
