Grassley-ass and the GOPee need to stop exploiting this terrible tragedy for political purposes. Of course, if Repubbies had to do that on a permanent basis, their party would disappear.
And that'd be a GOOD thing for America...
The bomber was a liberal democrat that went to the same school as Matt Damon, who is a democrat, liberal, anti-fracking activist that took money from oil producing Muslims to make the movie..What the hell are they teaching these kids in that school up there???

House Republicans are aiming to check off another item on their to-do list for the tech sector: more visas for high-skilled foreign grads.

GOP leaders are readying a bill by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) that would steer more visas to foreign graduates of U.S. universities and laying the groundwork for a floor vote this week by urging the sector to help them push for passage.

The bill would eliminate the diversity visa lottery program and reallocate many of those visas to foreign graduates with masters and doctorates in STEM fields science, technology, engineering, mathematics from qualifying U.S. universities, according to a congressional aide.

Tech sector representatives from Microsoft, Qualcomm and Oracle, among other companies and groups, attended a Capitol Hill meeting Friday with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and their aides, along with aides to House Speaker John Boehner, according to meeting participants.

The bill passed 245-139 in the Republican-controlled House, largely along party lines. But Democrats control the Senate, and a similar bill there has little chance of passing this year.

Texas Republican Representative Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee who introduced the "STEM Jobs Act," said the high-tech visa program would help the United States retain US-trained workers to spur innovation and job creation.

Yes, job creation for foreigner's and bomb making.

Thanks teabaggers.

This scum dropped a bomb at the feet of an 8 year old child, looked the child in the eyes, walked away, and detonated the bomb. He was a legal immigrant. He had all the opportunities given our own people. Do we really want 10 million more of these people from other countries that didn't even come here legally? Think about it, and call your Congressman. We need as many calls about illegal aliens, as we had against gun control.

So, by teabagger logic.

The bombers visited Russia.

The Koch's visited Russia.

The Koch's and Russians are in business together.

The Koch's and Iran are in business together.

The Koch's and Venezuela are in business together.

The Koch's started and financed the tea party.

The bombers are terrorist.

That makes the Koch's terrorist.

Which makes all teabaggers terrorist.
