The obvious tag will be here tonight.. look for the flashing lights on the ridge and don't make eye contact.

The War on Drugs - a war against inanimate objects, and we lost it.
 
2014-07-16 12:37:56 PM
I've been fighting in the War on Drugs since it started, one hit at a time.
 
2014-07-16 01:25:03 PM
War, huh, yeah. What is it good for. Absolutely nothing, except with Doritos.
 
2014-07-16 01:29:55 PM
How is this not partnered with the [Obvious] tag?

Oh, that's right, because people would rather argue about brown people coming across the border than to ask *why* they want to leave their homes and make a dangerous journey to cross not only the US border but other borders on the way there.

It's interesting, though.  In other situations we'd be calling these people "refugees", but I guess we're not gonna do that here, are we GOP.

Does liberal guilt know no bounds... are we guilty for everything going bad around the world?

The United States of America:  the cause of and solution to all of the world's problems.

In times of relative peace:  "Why doesn't the U.S. mind it's own business?"

In times of instability:  "Why doesn't the U.S. intervene and help in the famine/genocide/earthquake cleanup/children kidnapping/latest fashionable atrocity?"

And yet government report just released says the opposite. The current influx of kids is because of perceived amnesty given if they get here. Has nothing to do with drugs or violence.

In this case, yes. The War on Drugs causes this violence. Since it isn't accomplishing anything at home either, it should be ended.

The 10-page July 7 report was issued by the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC), which according to the Justice Department website is led by the DEA and incorporates Homeland Security. Its focus is on the collection and distribution of tactical intelligence, information which can immediately be acted on by law enforcement.
"Of the 230 migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos to UAC (unaccompanied children) and adult females OTMs (other than Mexicans) traveling with minors," the report said.

I agree, we create the demand problem, but there seems to be no expectation that these countries take any action against their own supply problem.

Well, I guess that's SOME progress...

At least, it's taking them longer to find a way to blame Bush.

Maybe it's actually Canada's immigration crisis and the first wave of refugees hasn't reached them yet.

Bill Maher started his show with this premise and even the GOP shill they put on the panel had no defense other than to say we need to deal with the outcome (ignoring the cause)

It's an amazing phenomenon that when terrible things happen to liberals and minorities, it's the fault of white people, but when terrible things happen to white people, it's definitely their fault and they deserve worse. Typical fark logic ...

I can't wait for China/Russia/India/EU to be #1 so I too can jump on a bandwagon to blame somebody else for absolutely EVERYTHING.

I am guessing you are troll-lo-lo-lo-lo-lolling.
In case you are serious:
Riiiiiight.

Here is the difference:
1. Refugees show up at your doorstep (so to speak) and seek asylum.
2. Illegal immigrants (by the very meaning and definition of the term) run the border and secret themselves in.

If you cannot see and understand the difference, or think (wrongly) that you get to change the meaning of words there is no hope you will ever 'get it'.

 WESLACO - A center for unaccompanied minors set to open in Weslaco later this year will be the first of its kind in the nation, officials with a network of non-profits said.

BCFS Health and Human Services secured a multi-million federal contract to house young illegal immigrants at the site of the current Palm Aire Hotel and Suites Resort on FM 1015.

Representatives with BCFS said the Palm Aire will undergo a multi-million dollar transformation.
BCFS runs a temporary detention center for young illegal immigrants at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

Pssst, don't anyone tell the refuges about the wet-foot, dry-foot rule for the Cubans. You know the one where they are fast tracked for citizenship, and receive Social Services because they made it to dry land. If they find out they will all claim to be Cubans and they will be home free.

They're not exactly secreting themselves in. These kids and their parents are under the impression that they need to turn themselves into Border Patrol and then will be allowed to stay. They're also under the assumption that claiming "asylum" is a sort of Get Out of Jail Free card.

The question here is: Do we accept their claim for asylum? Or do we ship them back and tell them 'good luck with that'?

No. Europe pretty much screwed up Africa with there colonial madness. They also f*cked up the Middle East, which the US jumped in on for that sweet sweet crude.

Russia did themselves in, China is a special kind of madness (with NK attached) and India ... well ... Britain gets some blame, but they are good at screwing themselves over.

Pretty-much, yep.

How many farkers are gonna step forward and PERSONALLY feed, clothe, and get these kids medical attention?  How many of you are gonna welcome one or two into your home?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

I know what's gonna happen, YOU know what's gonna happen, We ALL know what's gonna happen.  The libs are going to throw even more money we don't have at this problem using the, "but they're just kids and we need to THINK OF THE CHILDREN" bullshiat they always use to garner sympathy.   Meanwhile this nation is approaching 18 trillion dollars worth of debt while everybody out west is sitting around legally getting high.  Enjoy it while it lasts, morons.

What is the current conservative outrage? That we are using an existing hotel to house the children while they are being processed?

You finally won me over Conservatives.  Where or the refugee tents?  Why do they have running water!?  It is an outrage you are not making these children suffer more Obama!

Jesus would kick those children's butts all the way back to sex slavery.  Feckless wimp.

/Amen.
