No Marine released, no money.

No troops on the border with loaded weapons.......no money

No written plan by Obama to stop the illegal invasion, no money

They have to stop the illegals at the border otherwise it will be like pouring 3.7B down a rat hole.

The money that America gives these foreign countries should be cut off NOW. We need to start taking care of American Children - they should be FIRST. Too many American children are going to bed hungry.

So you, a right wing moonbat is actually saying that it is up to the government to help feed starving American kids right here in America? Really?
So you're good with free lunch? You're good with unemployment benefits? You are actually saying that American families out there actually need the Food Stamp Program?
You realize you just said, the American Federal government has to invest $$$ in American children and families? That is a fairly liberal stance. How can you live with yourself???

I am good with a free lunch program -(not the garbage that Michelle is making the kids eat) the chocolate milk was taken away and these are the treats they cannot get at home. Most of what they are now fed is thrown away in the trash. I am NOT good with years of unemployment benefits - 92 weeks is too long. I am good with food stamps but they have to take a drug test first. Itís the other BS that the government does that is senseless - all the pork - like the bridge that goes nowhere and all of the money that is being spent on fuel for Air Force One for joy rides and photo-ops and golf games and vacations. I am not for changing the CONSTITUTION and the Bill of Rights. I am NOT for providing millions of dollars to foreign countries. I am NOT for giving our fighter jets and drones to other countries - only to get them fired back at us. I am NOT for Fast and Furious guns being given to Mexico drug dealers so our Border Guards can be shot with them. I am NOT FOR ALL THE SPENDING THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR THE PAST 6 YEARS.
Wake up - America is in debt up to our eye balls. I do not like big government spending and taxing the people to death to provide for all these foreign countries so the WH can look good. They are laughing at him.

It is one thing to feed American children. It is quite another to sit by, and take in every diseased, lice infested illegal alien on the continent. Democrats pretend to appropriate money for their causes, but very little actually gets to the people. Mostly it is pocketed by corrupt politicians. That is why we have to look at all the money they get, because they are so damn crooked.

Why can't President Obama just write a check? He does everything else on his own. He didn't need Congress to violate all our Immigration laws, or change the parts of his Obamascam that were interfering with his last election. He don't need no steenking Congress

Americans, and legal immigrants are retaliating against what they see as an invasion from Central America, and Mexico. There are a few others. They found a prayer rug in Arizona, and we figure there are terrorists sneaking in with the lice infested, diseased illegal others.

BTW guns are protected by that pesky 2nd Amendment. Disease carrying illegals have to go home. There is nothing for the Republicans to concern themselves with. These lice infested creatures are here courtesy President Obama, and the Democrats.

You're upset about chocolate milk?

For god's sake we get it already. Illegals have lice.
I challenge you to type the word "illegal" without using lice, and disease infected in the whole paragraph.
A prayer rug in Arizona???
Now that changes everything!!!!
Let your paranoia run wild !!!!!

Please explain to me how people coming from central America is not a problem for the republicans to concern themselves with?
And maybe you could enlighten me on how this is all Obama and the Democrats fault?
I never hear Obama saying" the border is open come on up, we won't send ya back."
But I do hear almost every day some republican saying "Obama loves illegals and wants them to come here"
Seems to me it is the republicans causing the border problems we have now by constantly spouting lies about Obama and our immigration laws.
OR it could just be that Central America is a dangerous shithole and making a trip to America is better even if you get sent back.

The GOP just voted for $285 bil in deficit spending for borrowing from China and Saudi Arabia funding for Corp Tax Cuts that will benefit a priviledged few in the 1%. The rest of America can sit on it

No I am worried about the right things - first you addressed the money for free lunches - now you are going on to the wars - well how about the wars Obama has had? What about the troops he said he was bring home his first term and they are still there? What about the fighter jets he gave to Egypt, what about him going around Congress to bomb Libya? Check out the attachment and look under Foreign Policy and find his wars, check out the budget while you are at it.

It is not only the GOP that is worried so are the Dems that now are going as far away from him as possible. He goes on a funding campaign and the Senator Udall (Colorado) does not show up.
