Kinda like this:
"The Inter-Press Sevice (IPS) is reporting that the head administrator of the Mexican Superintendency of Tax Administration, Raul Diaz, has confirmed that his government is building a wall in the state of Chiapas, along the Mexican/Guatemalan border."

It's considered a safety issue.

"The Federal Highway Administration regulations require that states must upgrade post-mounted guide signs (e.g., stop signs, speed limit signs, pedestrian crossing signs) to meet minimum retroreflectivity standards by 2015. States must also upgrade street name signs and overhead guide signs to meet minimum retroreflectivity requirements by 2018.

A second — and distinctly different — FHWA regulation requires that newly-installed street name signs (or replacements for existing street name signs) must use a combination of upper and lower case letters rather than all upper case (i.e., capital) letters. Signs executed in predominantly lower case letters are generally easier to comprehend than signs written in all upper case letters (because the shapes of lower case letters have greater distinctiveness between them), so the new lettering requirements should make road signs easier for drivers (particularly older motorists) to read."

Not necessarily.

(Breitbart)– Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said late Tuesday that he supports securing the United States border with Mexico with a double-tiered fence but voted against an amendment to the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill that would have required exactly that.

Rubio and his fellow Gang of Eight Republicans helped the Democrats kill an amendment from Sen. John Thune (R-SD) that would have required the double-tiered fence be built, as current law requires, before amnesty was granted to America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants. The only other Republican to vote against the amendment was Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)."

“I support Senator Thune’s efforts to require completion of double layered border fencing,” Rubio said in a statement after voting against the amendment.“Properly deployed, these fences have proven highly effective in limiting illegal crossings. That is why the current bill requires $1.5 billion be spent specifically on a border fence plan.”

“However, his amendment does not detail a specific border plan,” Rubio claimed.“Therefore, I opposed his amendment and instead continue to work with my Republican colleagues to arrive at a new measure that improves on the significant border security measures already in the bill.”

The amendment would have undercut Rubio’s promise to Univision’s Spanish-speaking audience this past weekend that amnesty would come before border security in the end.“First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border.” He added,“It is not conditional. The legalization is not conditional.”

I would share that with you except, as you may have noticed, I have a stalker with whom I do not care to share information. However, I will take a guess that I do FAR more to help others every year than you will do in a lifetime.

It only matters if the "whites" are racists. The facts of the case couldn't be clearer. No one in their right mind can deny that the edited video of Sherrod's speech was libelous and caused her great harm. No one.

U.S. Department of Transportation Reduces Burden on Local Governments

Final Rule Eliminates Dozens of Deadlines for Replacing Traffic Signs, Simplifies Requirements

WASHINGTON - U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood today announced the Obama Administration is eliminating 46 regulations on traffic signs to provide more flexibility for state and local governments, including allowing communities to replace traffic signs when they are worn out rather than requiring signs to be replaced by a specific date.

"Some of these burdensome deadlines would have cost communities millions of dollars at a time when they can't afford that," said Secretary LaHood. "We spoke to state and local officials across the country, and we heard them loud and clear."

Earlier this year, President Obama called for a government-wide review of regulations in order to identify those that needed to be changed or removed because they were unnecessary, out-of-date, excessively burdensome or overly costly.

"Officials at the state and local levels are in the best position to make decisions related to sign replacement and other issues related to traffic management," said Federal Highway Administrator Victor Mendez. "These changes will give them the flexibility they need to make the best use of taxpayer dollars."

She was fired and humiliated. People like Breitbart need to learn that you can't just fake a video to libel someone and get away with it. When Sherrod is awarded millions in damages it should send a strong message, don't you think?

Anyone not surprised Kerry at the urging of Obama didn't include the release of Saeed Abedini in their "deal/distraction" with Iran?

Saeed Abedini is a former member of Islam who converted to Christianity. He has been incarcerated in Iran since the summer of 2012 after the Iranian government sentenced him to eight years in prison for purportedly undermining national security by preaching Christianity.

Abedini became a pastor in Boise, Idaho, regularly making trips to Iran working on a government-approved orphanage when he was arrested last year.

Guess appeasing the bad guys in an attempt to look like the good guys was more important to this administration.

The guy who helped us find bin Laden is still rotting away in a Pakistani prison too.

So much for doing the right thing. Digging this hole a little deeper is now the priority.

Bush not being currently in office has NOTHING to do with the history of his administration you f*cking moron.

Yes: the recession started under Bush. You can yell, scream & stomp your feet. It does not change the facts.

Bush doubled the debt - FACT.

Bush Started the Iraq War - Fact

Bush took us from a balanced budget to the worst recession in 80 years - FACT.

The ACA is doing something about Healthcare. Your GD precious Republicans held both houses for 12 years & did absolutely NOTHING while premiums climbed nearly at double digit rates yearly.
