Fox News Brands U.S. Citizens With Undocumented Parents As 'Children Of The Corn'
This probably isn't the best way to reach Latino viewers.
In a segment titled "The Grapevine," Fox News referred to undocumented youth as "children of the corn" in a graphic prominently displayed in the top right corner of the screen.
Chris Wallace guest-hosted the Sept. 19 edition of Fox News "Special Report," according to Media Matters, where he summarized a recent analysis by Los Angeles County estimating that undocumented parents would receive $650 million in government assistance this year. The report neglects to mention that the parents are receiving the government benefits to assist their U.S. citizen children.
While Wallace speaks, a graphic appears with the title "Children of the Corn" -- the title of a horror story by Stephen King that has been adapted to film. It's not clear why the producers chose that title, though corn is traditionally an important element of the Mexican diet.
Wallace opens the segment by saying the figures amount to more "proof of the economic impact of the immigration debate." Despite the framing of the report, economists generally agree that immigration fosters economic growth, though it can have negative impacts on some workers who compete directly with undocumented workers.

Apparently, they shucked that "re-inventing" themselves concept. hahaha Really reaching out to Hispanics eh? haha

Thanks, the general bobbysocks was freaking wasn't he? haha I know some people hate long posts, but I post them so people can read them without clicking on the link or just put the subject in a search engine and look for the facts. It is okay if him and the
)8~D> batshit crazy loon do it. When you put their subject in a search engine, 9 out 10 times it will have all RWNJ and jihad sites. Not even fauxbox has a story on it. bobbysocks doesn't even post a link while he is crying about my long posts. I read ALL news (minus the conspiracy and jihad sites haha) and will continue to post like I have since I was defending Jack Conway against the GRANDrand.
If you go to the US Politic site to get to this thread you will see the long list of threads. Believe me, most are temporary, have the same thing posted, or is just a hate, gloom and doom thread with worse BS than on this one the clowns and their socks spin. You can watch them bounce back and forth to them. I pop in the President bashing one from time to time to watch arisocks play his game there and the loon reposting everything she does here as well as watch them recruit to this site like they have done here. I will stick with the KENTUCKY forum where I live and the election coming up really matters for this POOR RED STATE. I hope to help change it BLUE. If just one vote changes due to my input I have won. So I try to expose our CONgressmen AND truly believe it is time to DITCH MITCH. Then GRANDrand and turn this into a prospering BLUE state. It is time. Great things will come to Kentucky.
Have a good day. I am out in again as soon as I have my little lunch break. I am decorating for the fall and getting out the Halloween decorations. My yard looks wonderful. All manicured and looking good. I love it. So nice out. Enjoy. I will.
I hope to see you later.

THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE REPUBLICAN PARTY! But in fact if it weren’t for GOP homophobes fear pundits, Fox lies and propaganda, disenfranchising minority and the poor, religious and women bigotry, race-baiting, fraud-based claims, disingenuous racist hoax, plus gerrymandering to support their "white only" southern strategy - they wouldn't garner enough votes to be called a Republican party.

Two seventh-grade students in Virginia Beach, Va., were handed long-term suspensions Tuesday that will last until the end of the school year for playing with an airsoft gun in one of their front yards while waiting for the school bus.
WAVY-TV reports that 13-year-old Khalid Caraballo and Aidan Clark will face an additional hearing in January to determine if they will be expelled for "possession, handling and use of a firearm" because the guns were fired at two others playing in Caraballo's yard.
A neighbor saw Khalid shooting the airsoft gun in his yard and called 911, telling the dispatcher, "He is pointing the gun, and it looks like there's a target in a tree in his front yard," the station reported.
Khalid claims he never took the toy gun to the designated bus stop or Larkspur Middle School, according to the report. Two other students who fired guns were also suspended.
In a letter obtained by WAVY.com , school principal Matthew Delaney found that the "children were firing pellet guns at each other, and at people near the bus stop." Delaney states in the letter that one child "was only 10 feet from the bus stop, and ran from the shots being fired, but was still hit."
The school's so-called "zero-tolerance" policy on guns extends to private property, according to the report.
Khalid's mother, Solangel Caraballo, said it's ridiculous that her son and his friends were suspended because they were firing the airsoft gun on private property.
"My son is my private property. He does not become the school's property until he goes to the bus stop, gets on the bus, and goes to school," Caraballo told the station.
Khalid told WAVY-TV he thinks the punishment is unfair and may hurt his chances of getting into a good college after graduating from high school.
"It's on your school record. The school said I had possession of a firearm. They aren't going to ask me any questions. They are going to think it was a real gun, and I was trying to hurt someone," he said.

Who wants to bet which party thease ignorant school employees belong to? This is stupidity at it's very finest!

There have been some good Democrats in the past.
They let 'libTARDED' principles get in their way.
They are on their way to becoming 'extinct'...
Just like the do do bird.
This Country is A *Constitutional Republic*...
NOT a "Democracy" ...
Looks like it's going to have to be SHOWN ...
There is NO diplomacy left.
They are trying to make it a 'one-way' street.
Talking does not get it.
We've banged our heads ENOUGH ...

That's exactly what the Repubs said about Medicare when it started. What is the Repub healthcare plan for America? They don't want ObamaCare and they tried to get rid of Medicare. Exactly what is the plan for those that can't pay for a $100K dollar heart attack or a $200K dollar cancer out of their pocket?

Tea Party Republican,
WOW! Congratulations! You are the most paranoid lunatic to ever appear on these pages. That is the craziest theory I have ever heard. Start storing your water and digging a shelter in your back yard, we'll come get you when it's over, lmao.

I post an accredited news report, and you think it is my theory? Then the 'idiots in hideing' judge you brilliant? How stupid are you? I know how stupid they are!
#124688 Sep 24, 2013
By the way halfwit, one person developing a theory requires them to first form a hypothesis, then try to disprove said hypothesis via scientific testing methods using dependent and independent variables; and if unsuccessful, compare it to many other tested hypothesis’s, then, and only then can a ‘theory’ be formed; of course you do not have the intelligence to understand that! You just used a word, that you didn’t know the meaning of, i.e. You are stupid!

You are pretty much spot on with the meaning of a scientific theory, but in this context it would be a political theory, which has a much broader scope.
#124691 Sep 24, 2013
...it's a crazy theory because you say so? Well, aren't you smarter than the average democrat slug? lmao Moving on...do you have anything credible to add to the discussion or are you just another ass clown looking for attention? Maybe uncle flabby scooters latest personality released from within his dark place? LMMFAO

A theory is never an opinion of one person, it is the most commonly misused word of people with little education, except for pacific instead of 'specific' perhaps. Let's leave this be now.

Obama gets stood up by Iran’s theocrats
Iran’s new president spurned a meeting with President Barack Obama Sept. 24, despite repeated invites from Obama’s staff.
“What we indicated is, again, what we’ve been saying publicly, which is we’re open to the two leaders having an encounter here at UNGA, not a formal meeting,” a White House officials told reporters at the U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York, on Sept. 24
“We had discussions at a working level with them and ultimately it became clear that that was too complicated for them at this time,” the official admitted.
Obama had hoped to meet Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s new president. He was elected to the post after being nominated by the top layer of Iran’s theocratic government, the Guardian Council.
However, the Iranians have long frustrated U.S. pressure against its nuclear weapons program, and is successfully working with Russia to frustrate Obama’s effort to depose Syria’s dictatorial government.

Why would Iran want to meet with a president 'that is on the ropes'.
Neither Iran or Brazil has anything good to say about Obama.
Brazil cancelled a state dinner, something unheard of.
Does this tell anyone beside Obama that he is not just a "lame duck president" but rather "a dead duck president".
The glory he soaked up early in his presidency has turned to ridicule and jokes. He was found weighed, measured and found wanting. I think that happened once before - with the Assyrians.
I'm "getting a point ACROSS" ...
without saying a word.
NOW, I 'will' say something.
Since I've not been on here ...
['taught someone a lesson'- their words to ME!; while I've been gone']
WHERE is ALL the "very spirited debate" ...
That you said my being "absent" would help ...???

Once again you are referring to "Theory" in the scientific sense.
I would imagine Einstein, Planck, and Newton would all take exception to your statement.
I refer you to the second definition:
2: abstract thought : speculation
6 b: an unproved assumption : conjecture
I am educated enough to know words can have different meanings depending on context.

A liar can never quit lying, because it takes a thousand lies to (try) to cover one! Saying "not mine" proves nothing and is childish! Oh well, what can you expect?
