DHS using bogus deportation numbers to inflate Obama enforcement claims
Rick Moran
The Department of Homeland Security
>> has admitted to inflating the numbers of illegals they claim to deport <<
by including those caught at the border, before they have a chance to enter the country. About half of all reported deportations are the result of arrests made at the border, says the agency.

Too bad Bush did not deploy the same tactics. Think of how many deportation trials could have been avoided.

Russia can not be trusted to respect the territorial integrity of post Soviet Europe.

Putin has threatened to intentionally destabilize the economies of the EU by shutting off energy supplies.

His justification for interfering in Ukraine, and now it appears annexing part of that country, is that he has the right to act anywhere large populations of Russian speaking people exist. That makes some of those Eastern European countries that used to be under Soviet domination a little uneasy since they all have large Russian speaking populations and most of them have political differences with Russia.

His actions have placed us in a position which, if we fail to act, would mean that our assurances spelled out in formal treaties are worthless which would make our position in the world a lot more difficult.

The list goes on.

I'm really not sure what it is about this that you don't understand, but if you think Putin is going to be satisfied with just taking Crimea you are a little naïve...just ask Georgia.

Obama approval rating drops to 41%. Folks will vote against the candidate he supports by 48%.

This was an NBC poll, not Fox, btw.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Hitler annexes the German speaking part of Czechoslovakia. Neville Chamberlain negotiates an agreement of appeasement with the promise of no further ambitions.

Here's a link to that article that should actually work...
Immigration change gives legal status to undocumented relatives of US military
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/03/11/im...
Read this excerpt...
...One face of this new policy is Christian Gonzalez, a retired Marine who has been recommended for a Purple Heart. He was attacked five days in a row by improvised explosive devices (IED's) in Afghanistan. The last one nearly claimed his life.
"For a brief period, I was paralyzed from the waist down. I suffered a pretty traumatic brain injury from that," said the San Antonio resident, sitting alongside his wife Laura, who was brought to the U.S. illegally as a child.
"Without her, you know, I'd be lost with my disabilities. Critics only look at her as an illegal alien. They're not looking at her as the spouse of a veteran," he said...
Now, tell me if you still want to call the wife of this American hero "vermin".
You're free to feel that way if you want, but it would tell me more about your character than I really want to know.
One out of how many? Just like the government to lump everyone together off of a hardcase situation just because they are too lazy to look at each individual case. Why do they do it? Because of dumbasses like you. They don't tell you how many will get married to an illegal alien for profit, sex, etc. and the illegal vermin, along with the illegal kids(which this guys kids aren't illegal), along with the illegal alien parents.

What extra benefit does an American get out of serving, if he doesn't marry an illegal alien?

Oh, we need to raise the taxes because the poor kids need an education and there just isn't enough money. Teachers are having to buy paper, etc. for the kids. Oh, we need to raise the national debt ceiling and raise the taxes because there just isn't enough money. But I can take a vacation in Hawaii during Christmas, then go to CA and play golf while the wife and kid go skiing in Colorado, and then go to Florida with the family in March. Fuc-king thieves!

Okay ya stupid fk wad.

You asked me a question and I answered you. I've been respectful and I've been very clear about what I'm trying to say and for the second day in a row you're calling me names because I don't see this the same way you do.

Choke on it and die for all I care. You're no better than the rest of the trolls around here.

very good analogy. the people of Europe were very wary of war after losing most of a generation to WWI. Hitler took advantage of that.

the people of the US are weary of war. the people of europe are weary of war...i'm sure Putin recognizes this fact...

Alright then, you seem to be saying that you believe Russian aggression and expansionism will continue under Putin, but you don't think that will destabilize Europe or the world economy.

Doesn't make much sense.

When do we do something about it?

Now, when economic sanctions would weaken Putin and give Russia a reason to think twice, or later, when he's got troops headed for Poland and we have to use force or roll over and let Russia have Europe?

Think before you post woodtick.

At least you understand what I'm trying to say.

I'm going to consider that progress and leave it at that.

how is a very pro russian part of the Ukraine going back to russia going to destabalize europe?

the other eastern european countries are not so pro russian, so your previous reference to them doesn't really hold the same as this example...
