The President has failed us

United States
Thousands rally against stricter gun control in U.S.

January 20, 2013

Gun advocates - some with rifles slung across shoulders or pistols holstered at the hip - have rallied peacefully in state capitals nationwide against President Barack Obama's sweeping federal gun-control proposals.

Summoned via social media for the "Guns Across America" event, participants gathered Saturday for protests large and small against stricter limits sought on firearms. Only a few dozen turned out in South Dakota and a few hundred in Boise, Idaho. Some 2,000 turned out in New York and large crowds also rallied in Connecticut, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Washington state.

About 800 people gathered for the "Guns Across America" event in Austin, Texas, as speakers took to the microphone under a giant Texas flag stamped with one word: "Independent."

"The thing that so angers me, and I think so angers you, is that this president is using children as a human shield to advance a very liberal agenda that will do nothing to protect them," said state Rep. Steve Toth, referencing last month's elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn.

Previously deported illegal alien charged in fatal rape of infant

Albuquerque, NM - On Thursday, Bernalillo County Sheriff's Deputies arrested and charged Juan Galindo, 37, with aggravated rape and child abuse resulting in death, after family members discovered the 1-month-old victim bloody and
unresponsive.

Galindo was babysitting the infant while her mother reportedly went to a
nearby casino.

Detectives believe the baby was actually Galindo's daughter, though another man has come forward claiming he is in fact the father. A DNA test is being conducted to confirm paternity.

When deputies arrived at the home around 4:00 a.m., the girl was already dead.

According to charging documents, the baby was found badly beaten with two black eyes, blood filling her onesie pajamas. She had a bite mark on her cheek, a lacerated liver as well as anal and vaginal tearing.

All my weapons are legal,unlike the ones given to the Mexican drug cartels by Obama and Eric Holder in the "Fast and Furious" caper

Holder Admits Lies in Fast and Furious, Refuses to Resign

Instead of offering his resignation as a growing chorus of critics has demanded, Attorney General Eric Holder (left) is going on the offensive over his alleged perjury and the growing scandal surrounding the Obama administration's deadly "Fast and Furious" program that supplied weapons to Mexican drug cartels.

Meanwhile, Holder is also calling for more gun control while attacking Congress for shedding light on the alleged government criminality. But Republicans and some Democrats are still pursuing the truth.

In May Holder testified before Congress - under oath - that he had only learned about the gun-running scheme "in the last few weeks." But last week, he changed his story after it became well known via the Justice Department's own documents that his claim was completely false.

Seeing as how over half of the illegal aliens in our country are "Mexicans" I'd say there's a good chance I'm right!!

Illegals by Race or Country

Mexico continued to be the leading source country of unauthorized
immigration to the United States (see Table 3).

******There were 6.6 million unauthorized immigrants from Mexico in 2010, representing 62 percent of the unauthorized population.******

The next leading source countries
for unauthorized immigrants in 2010 were El Salvador
(620,000), Guatemala (520,000), Honduras (330,000), and the
Philippines (280,000).

The ten leading
countries of origin represented 86 percent
of the unauthorized immigrant
population in 2010.

The number of Mexican-born unauthorized
immigrants increased by 2.3
million between 2000 and 2007 and
decreased by 340,000 between 2007
and 2010.

Changes in the unauthorized
population were much smaller
during either period for other leading
source countries.

Asking a person about their gender is on an entire different level than asking somebody for their papers for lawful presence. One requires the appropriate lawful authority to do so... the other is a simple question that anyone can ask.

So out of curiously... do you spend your days like "geezna" reporting illegal aliens solely based on your prejudices, ignorance and hate?

LOL...

I bet you also lie to yourself by believing that the people you report actually got deported!

ROLF!!!

I'll tell you a little story about a guy I once knew.... To some trailer trash hillbilly with that right wing nut mentality....he looked like a total illegal alien so one day his neighbor called law enforcement on him and ICE eventually came over due to the ludicrous allegations & lies that the person made about him.

To make a long story short... the guy ended up being detained for not having all his papers in order and he lost time from his job. He was eventually released.

Guess what, the person who made the report was sued in civil court and the "illegal looking guy" laughed all the way to the bank. For the record... the defendant lost partially on the grounds of filing false reports.

Civilians like you who think your safe from lawsuits by reporting and screwing up peoples lives who're not illegal aliens reserve the right to sue the crap out of you for damages associated from your action and I'm sure that your little social security check cannot afford to be garnished.

It's just some food for thought!!!

Btw... happy MLK day!!!

I don't care about all your feel good SPAM. It's great filling up your 4000 character comment limit but that's all.

The only way you can determine if a person is an illegal alien is if you posses the authority to question a subject about their lawful status. Since you're not in any legal position to question me or anyone about their legal status I'd advice you to surrender your wanna-be ICE agent role playing.

All you continue to do is prove that you're not interested in the legal aspect of determining who is and is not illegal. You... like all other fringer anti-illegals feel that all you need to know is that if they "look" illegal... they must be illegal and that kind of mentality is what's making you look like a flaming bigot/racist.

I would have thought by now that your right wing agenda of obstructionism and sabotage of the USA is not the path you should be taking. So far you've had dismal result and only yourself to blame.
I'll believe that I am wrong in my beliefs when:
1) DC actually starts cutting REAL spending
2) the House either UNfunds our illegal wars or actually Declares War
3) the sitting Pres demands the House to do either of the above
4) the Pres, as the LEADER of OUR Nation, demands Congress take any and all measures to protect domestic manhufacturing jobs and bring manufacturing back to OUR shores by enacting tariffs FAIR to Americans and THEIR jobs
5) the Fed Reserve is either severally curtailed or abolished
6) the Fed Govt gets OUT of OUR Local Public Schools
7) a sitting Pres states that BOTH abortion and marriage is NONE of the Fed Govt's business, as per the Constitution
8) the Congress defunds ANY failed Fed program effective immediately
9) some one is FIRED or resigns for Benghazi
10) the Military is scaled back to purely Defensive proportions
11) and OUR Forgeign Policy quits using OUR Military and children as its tools
12) OUR Fed judges and Justices are nominated and appointed on their experience/knowledge of OUR laws and Constitution, period,
13) and, lastly, said Courts start enforcing existing Laws against ALL offenders instead of this mindless demand for more or reformed laws.
do YOU see any of those happening any time soon?
me neither...

Those pesky gun running programs had the support of the NRA!!! The NRA is a lobbyist organziation that supports gun sales. Now the NRA is trying to clean their hands.

I bet you're an NRA member and the NRA is very busy right now black mailing members of congress to ensure that votes for placing Holder in contempt happen so the blame can be focused on everyone but the NRA!

<quoted text>You say you asked me how long an economic downturn might last? How would I know? Have I ever said I WAS an economist and in the prediction business, or rather, haven't I said I read what economists write and their comments? I don't recall anybody saying anything about duration of anything other than in relationship to The Great Recession wherein opinions in consensus NOW seem to be that the hit we took is a ten year road to recovery - much as Japan experienced their own lost decade, further extended due to natural events beyond their control, and nuclear events they'd ill prepared to control.
Recessions are cyclical and periodic, so why wouldn't I expect there will be another downturn as we have experienced throughout our history, and most especially now that we are engaged in a global economy where what happens in Spain doesn't stay in Spain? As to natural events we can't forecast, a devastating earthquake on the New Madrid or San Andreas could push us back into Recession as well, not to mention a terrorist attack of some kind, super storms as a result of that ("don't believe it") global warming thingy that Republicans have been horribly late in comprehending.
Anyhow, I don't have an answer to your question. Do you? So, why do you bother to ask when you know full well nobody knows the answer? If I could refer you to a link and somebody who was knowledgeable and was making that prediction, I would. I can't. Good luck on your search for answers! Bon voyage!
wow! three paragraphs for three words, "I don't know.'?
I asked because you posted an opinion that an econ downturn IS coming.
I agree, btw.
and, I think it will be deeper and LONGER (12 mos or until either The End or the end of the Progressive regime in DC). not unlike FDR's GD and his failed handling of it and how his policies PROLONGED it.
ain't History fun?
maybe you don't have the answers because you ignore the 'signs' AND History?
or, maybe you do have the answers and just don't want to share because they don't support YOUR rosy opinion of You-Know-Who?

Sure looks like a good fishing spot though.
Ever wonder why the government doesn't go fishing for illegal aliens at immigration rallies or protests..... lawful rallies and protest are protected free speech spots.

Imagine if the government entered a gun rally and began questioning everyone about the legality of peoples guns and detaining those who didn't bring their papers for their guns? There would be an outcry that would put the government on the defensive for violating peoples constitutional rights.

OK... so some argue that illegal aliens don't have constitutional rights but they're so far from truth and reality on this one. They in fact do have "some" constitutional rights, especially the right to grieve and redress the government relating to immigration policies.

You see, that's the problem with letting them stay for so damn long... the longer they stay, the more rights they obtain.

The USA should have never looked the other way back in 1986. The laws should have been enforced vigilantly... now that we have a 10+ million illegal alien problem and everyone wants them removed ASAP. You simply don't remove millions of people from the USA like a herd of cattle.

Heck... even during Operation VVetback... only a million a year were removed and the government was much more radical in their removal policy. Today only some 400,000 are removed a year.

So you see... this is a problem that is much more complicated than simply rounding up "illegal looking people" and sending them off to Mexico.
