Obama instigated this children's march on our borders with his June 15 2012 amnesty. Obama has always supported an amnesty for children, now without any legislation from Congress, he's implemented his own DREAM Act, not matter what the American people want.

We want secure borders first.

Now what are we to do? The radio guy is supposed to have leaked some news that he shouldnt what says that detainees and immigrants are being bussed secretly to Tiburon overnight where they will be transported by water later in the week to Angel Island for "processing". Is this so? does this mean that Belvedere might be at risk for diseases and cooties? Please, God, save us!

Actually, what has gone unstated by the Government "news" media is that Obama's efforts to "unite" the "children" with their "families" amounts to a de facto legitimization of the illegal "Hispanics" who previously jumped the border. The next stage of this nefarious plot will come when high paid taxpayer supported Government lawyers use the corrupt legal system to argue illegal alien "families" cannot be deported because doing so would leave the "legalized children" without parents.

President Obama wiped his tush with the Treaty of Tripoli; he turned a treaty of peace into drones and cruise missiles killing subjects of Tripoli then capturing and executing the Bey of Tripoli Muammar Gaddafi. President Obama totally abrogated the Treaty of Tripoli proving no president is 100% bad.
He gives drones bad name.

CNN has pulled reporter Diana Magnay out of the Middle East after she referred to a group of Israelis who had allegedly threatened her while reporting on Gaza as "scum" in a tweet.

Magnay was reporting live on the air as a group watched the Israeli bombardment of Gaza around her. After the report was over, she wrote on Twitter: "Israelis on hill above Sderot cheer as bombs land on #gaza; threaten to 'destroy our car if I say a word wrong.' Scum."

The Israelis will only achieve proportionality when the rockets stop crossing Israel's borders. Hamas isn't a legitimate peace partner because their charter is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and genocide of the Jews in Israel. The moral distinction between Israel, which has given up land for peace and Hamas who have attacked and murdered Israelis.

Even the people of Gaza are learning to hate Hamas as they hide behind civilians during a war of their making.

710 tunnel no solution to Alhambra traffic problem

Alhambra’s traffic stems not from the lack of a 710 Freeway extension. The traffic is created by the City Council’s irresponsible over-development. Their mega-mixed-use construction primarily on Main Street adds thousands of cars to our surface streets.

These are current or former dirty deed glendora council persons.
Should Kenny Herman (Kenny ran away to another state), Karen Davis she is still on the council but minus a husband), Gary Clifford (he ran away for a Athens salary after voting to extend the contract for Glendora), Mark Kelly (Kelly left the city council real fast after a police visit to Costco) and Douglas Tessitor (testical is still hanging but looking very ill) be expelled from Glendora, California - righ now, should be the real question for this poll.

Just a way to get around the Prop. 218 requirement for a 2/3rds vote for a new tax. This is a bag tax and they know it. Blame it on Mayor Chuck Reed of San Jose and never vote for him for anything!

The business of San José need not concern anyone in India, where bride-burning and similar atrocities are far more pressing issues.
