You are an idiot. Is this 12 year old getting through the border by himself? Most of these kids crossing the border has lots of help from illegal gangs to do crossing. This is not different from adults crossing the border with help of some gang. The issue should be resolve through negotiations with Mexican government, not going around making it into an very expensive military operation or putting up very expensive fences.
The border is at most secure ever. This does not mean illegal immigrants are not crossing the border. They have been doing this daily for many decades already. The number of illegal immigrants crossing the Mexican border is dropping though. Teabaggers obviously have nothing better to do than spend their time worrying about 12 year kids being security risks.
Israel is making a big mistake with their attempt to annex all of the West Bank to itself. Israel's refusal to even meet Abbas half way and allow a viable Palestinian state to be form in the West Bank is making Abbas a laughing stock while making Hamas in Gaza strong since it reinforces the idea within Palestinians that they cannot negotiate with the Israelis. Israel should reverse course quickly first with a cease fire in Gaza and then allowing a Palestinian state to be formed in the West Bank with a capital in East Jerusalem. This tactic of Israel to announce big new settlements in Palestinian areas every time there is peace negotiations should stop.
Teabag azzwholes are constantly making up fake scandals like Benghazi, or IRS and then claiming there is 'covering up of evidence'.
'Ukraine is squarely within Russia's sphere of influence'. You sound like an old style colonialist who view the world as being divided up under the dominance of a few great powers. This view is no longer relevant in this current interconnected world that we all now live in.
Dealing with Putin is a slow process. It will not finish in a day. The primary thing to remember here is Ukraine needs to fight its own battles with Russia if it wants independence from the Russians. The US has no defense treaty with Ukraine and the US should not have any direct role with fighting battles in Ukraine.
Given that, there are plenty more options for Obama to ratchet up the pressure on Putin without going to war with Russia. If Russia invades Ukraine, the US might consider sending lethal weapons to assist Ukraine to fight Russia.
Stop whining about other people making $12 million in 16 months. It is what Teabaggers want, the rich gets richer and poor gets poorer. At least Clinton pays much more in taxes on her earnings than tax cheats like Mitt Romney.
You are confusing evolutionary time frames versus human time frames. The fossil record does show cataclysmic extinction periods in the past where species died 'very quickly'. However, very quickly in evolutionary time is 100,000 years or even 1 or 2 million years which is just a blink of an eye as far as evolution is concerned. This is enough time for new life forms to establish themselves while the older life species died out. Human induced extinction is causing entire species to died out in only a few years for some cases. This rate of species extinction is unsustainable.
Stop whining. The world has been in chaos for thousands of years already but it is getting better. The present world situation is actually much more stable and prosperous than in the past. Of course, there is still plenty of room for improvement for the world but this can only be accomplished by dedicated people who seriously apply themselves to helping the world become a better place, NOT by whining morons like Teabag azzwholes who only think about themselves.
It would make sense for Kentucky to paid some of its people to help them move to other states such as North Dakota where there are more job opportunities. This would be true for any other state that cannot provide job opportunities for their citizens. Other states that could do this are West Virginia, Rhode Island, Mississippi, etc.
Hard to tell what Al Gore would have done about 9/11. He was cheated out of being elected president after all. However, it is pretty certain Al would not have done the idiot action by the GOP which is to invade Iraq.
Some in the Islam religion do demand this. This happens in almost all other religion. There are also fanatics like this in Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc., basically for any major religion.
College grads living at home is not a bad thing. It is in many cases a good choice for both the college grads and the parents. Why should parents have to sell their big houses and move to smaller and more remote retirement communities just because their kids graduated from college? Isn't it a better choice if possible to have their kids move back in to help pay expenses and doing the chores? For college grads, it make sense in many cases to move back in with the parents not only for the lower cost of living but also to be surrounded with people they love and trust. After all, it is really no cake walk nowadays to find others and live happily ever after with that person or persons.
The red line warning on Syria turned out to be great. Syria has agreed to and carried out turning over all their declared chemical weapons for destruction. All this done by Syria without the US having to fire a single shot. These chemical weapons being destroyed in the Mediterranean right now. Even the PM of Israel, a strong critic of the US president, thinks Obama did a good job handling this situation.
As to Ukraine, the only viable way to deal with Russia in Ukraine is through economic sanctions which is what Obama is doing. Teabag morons in their tiny minds want red lines or even worse want war with Russia but these chicken hearts are obviously too cowardly to go fighting in Ukraine.
No reason Ted Cruz should support immigration funding. Ted Cruz is Cuban and Cuban immigrant, legal or otherwise, already have automatic immigration rights as soon as they land in the US.
As far as the GOP is concerned, the problem with the migrants is they are not Cubans. If they were Cubans, the GOP would welcome them with open arms. Honduras and Guatemala probably should turn themselves into hardcore Communist states just like Cuba did. Then no doubt the GOP rush to make sure Honduran and Guatemalan refugees will have same automatic immigration rights as existing for Cubans refugees.
Obama is doing fine. He proactively withdrew US forces from Iraq before this latest bloodbath. Fortunately, no US military personnel died from the latest civil war in that country. Obama is also withdrawing US troops out of Afghanistan which is a good thing. The only viable way to contain Russia in Ukraine is through economic sanctions which is what Obama is doing. Teabaggers whining about a more 'forceful' response to Russia wants a war with Russia which they themselves are too cowardly to fight.
You are an idiot. The world is much more stable now after the US withdrew from Iraq is now withdrawing from Afghanistan. There will always be conflicts in the world. The present situation in the ME or Ukraine is not much different from previous wars in ME or the earlier Russian invasion of Georgia. If you want perfectly stable world, you need to commit suicide for that but it seems you are too chicken to do this.
What crackpot you are. Now you have a problem with the world? The world was much, much worse off during the GOP invasion of Iraq over fake WMDs. Also, remember the Russian invasion of Georgia when Bush basically did nothing. Ukraine is not for US to defend. The country has no defense pact with the US but at least the US is using economic sanctions on Russia this time around unlike the do nothing Bush. However, if you want to fight Russians in Ukraine, please go to Ukraine and fight instead of whine like the moron Teabagger you are.
