LOL. Everyone but you knows the bills are dead in the water. It would be a complete waste of time to call for a vote in the Senate. You really need to study how things work in Congress.
The Republicans were desperate to have some recorded proof that they tried to address the "crisis" even if it meant agreeing to revisions offered by tea party members. As Michele Bachmann said, Rep. Steve King (a vocal opponent of Obama's immigration plan) "completely gutted the(original) bill". That is reason enough to scuttle the bills.
Heck, the House authorized only $694 million in additional funding for federal agencies dealing with the influx of immigrants. This after approving $225 million in emergency funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system the same day. It's a joke.
"Bishop Eusebio Elizondo of Seattle, who leads the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ work on immigration issues, called passage of the legislation “a low point for our country. It eviscerates American values of justice and due process and stains our record as a defender of human rights globally.”

You have inside info that those bills would fail in the senate? If that is so the senate leader, hiarless reed should want a vote. He refuses to allow the senate to do their job and vote on bills passed by the house. Could it be he is afraid that some of the bills would pass thus pissing off the boy president who would have to veto them. For crying out loud the boy is thinking of using the power of his pen executive privilege to give amnesty to what 100000 illegals. The key word is illegals, those folks are here illegally. They have no right to be here.

LMAO. After all the attacks against blacks, you have the nerve to say that you support Carson? Is it because he said, "The U.S. is very much like Nazi Germany?" and claiming that we live in a "Gestapo age ...where people are afraid to say what they actually believe." Hmm. Now that I think of it, I see exactly why a reich winger would think he "has a great deal of common sense." Geez.
You think that because someone doesn't approve of a corrupt POTUS,they are 'against blacks'? You think that if someone questions a lie,they are 'against black's? You think that if someone brings up the fact that Obama can't open his mouth with out telling lies,that is "against black's'? I would question any politician's lies,I don't think that Obama should be treated any different than any other POTUS. Since you believe that Obama should be treated differently than all his predecessors,you are racist.

I can only imagine how most people say 'oh shit' when an idiot like you walks into the room. Obama is the President of the most powerful nation on earth and the vast majority of Americans voted for him twice, meanwhile an idiot like you cannot make two posts in a row without misspelling half the words and the other half make no sense other than to your dumb ass.

Republicans defeat Republicans
-pass the popcorn

House Republicans still haven’t passed a bill to deal with the border crisis but they will be voting on a plan that would deport 500,000 children who have been living in the United States for most their lives.

The AP reported,“House Republicans pushed legislation on Friday that could clear the way for eventual deportation of more than 500,000 immigrants brought here illegally as kids and address the surge of immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.”

What does this have to do with the current crisis on the border? Nothing really. Republicans think that if they look tough by deporting a half of a million kids who have lived in this country for most of their lives, it will stop the surge of Central American children arriving at the Southern border.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) championed the bill,“We were able to come to a point of 218 yes votes on what arguably is the most monumental vote that we will take in this entire term, and it’s dealing with the issue that the American people care about more than any other, and that is stopping the invasion of illegal foreign nationals into our country.”

House Republicans are oblivious to the cruelty behind their plan, and the message that they are sending to millions of voters that they hope to court if they are ever to win back the White House. This is desperate scheme that is based on lunatic reasoning that will only damage the Republican Party in the long-term.

Republicans aren’t thinking long-term. They are only interested in being able to go back to their districts and talk tough about what they did to get rid of the “illegals.” This sideshow is all about optics and what makes the Republican base happy. They are clueless fools, who will be alienating millions of 2014, 2016, and 2018 votes with a single vote that is designed to appeal to the immigrant hating segment of their party.

In 2008, if there were 100 candidates, I would have put any of the other 99 before Obama. We would have been better off if people voted out of the phone book. Obama was not qualified, and proved he was not qualified. In 2012,people already knew how bad Obama was, and millions still voted for him. Millions also regret their vote.

You are a total idiot and know absolutely nothing about world affairs. We can lay most of the blame at the feet of the Republican party, their war like mentality and fools that follow and that is where idiots like you fit into the picture.I'm just glad Obama has been the president for the last 6 years. So screw you and your backwoods mentality MORON. Obama inherited the worst mess in our nations history from two of our worst bunglers and with absolutely nothing from the Republicans we are emerging from all of their messes.While idiots like all on the right are fast becoming Americas answer to Al Qaeda, every bit as fanatical...You and Galt would be exhibit A.

Algae toxins prompt water warning in US city

Associated Press
TOLEDO, Ohio: Toxins possibly from algae on Lake Erie fouled the water supply of the Ohio city of Toledo Saturday, forcing officials to issue warnings not to drink the water and the governor to declare a state of emergency as worried residents descended on stores, quickly clearing shelves of bottled water.

The city advised about 400,000 residents in Toledo, most of its suburbs and a few areas in southeastern Michigan not to brush their teeth with or boil the water because that would only increase the toxin's concentration. Showers and baths are fine, the mayor said.

Toledo issued the warning just after midnight after tests at one treatment plant showed two sample readings for microsystin above the standard for consumption.

Gov. John Kasich's emergency order will allow the state to begin bringing water into the Toledo area.

Toledo leaders were setting up water distribution centers around the city, limiting families to one case of bottled water. Some stores that were receiving new shipments of water putting limits on how much people can buy.

Mayor D. Michael Collins said at a news conference that city officials hope to know later Saturday how long the warning will stay in place, and he pleaded with residents not to panic. There were no reports yet of people becoming sick from drinking the water, Collins said.

Sample of water were flown to the federal and state Environmental Protection Agency offices in Cincinnati and Columbus for additional testing, officials said.

Police officers were called to stores as residents lined up to buy bottled water, bags of ice and flavored water.

Some neighboring communities that aren't connected to Toledo's water system were offering their water to people who brought their own bottles and containers.

The city's advisory said Lake Erie may have been affected by a bloom of harmful algae that produces the toxin. Consuming the tainted water could result in vomiting, diarrhea and other problems.

Isn't interesting whenever anyone has negative comments regarding Obama, liberals immediately conclude we are racists?? Nothing could be further from the truth.

By the way, Carson explained his reference to Nazi Germany.

Ben Carson defended his past comparison of the United States to Nazi Germany in an appearance on CNN's "Crossfire" on Wednesday.

Carson's liberal counterpart for the night, former Democratic Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, brought up the subject, saying, "The good doctor here compared our country to Nazi Germany, and that's the kind of rhetoric that is divisive and really tears our country apart."

Carson responded, "What I said is that most of the people in Nazi Germany did not believe in what Hitler was doing. But did they speak up? Did they say anything? Making the analogy that that can happen anywhere where people don't speak up, particularly when they disagree with what's going on."

Name any war we've been in since 1945 that has made anything safer, nitwit.

You can't because it never happens.

Wars only beget more wars.

See Iraq in 2003 for proof of that.

Bush lit the entire Middle East on fire.

And lost both wars in the process.
