Your post are nothing but short one or two liners spewing hate. Not really workable solutions or insight or ideas, just dumb crap. The hate one-liners you pick up from others on the far-right. Try posting something with substance sometime and maybe someone with a brain might take you seriously. Turn off the far right Talk Radio, stop watching Tea Party jibberish and force yourself to try and understand the other point of view. This will help you bring some depth to any argument as well as perspective on issues. !
Oh, and grow up your immaturity reeks.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

They need to give these kids 3 hots (jail/ law enforcement term for hot meals) a cot and a one way plane ticket in the morning, and not a thing else.
When these kids start showing up back home after their parents spent their life saving to get them across the creek, They will think twice on whether the money was worth it or not.
Most of you that know me, know what I do for a living, and yes I have been down there on more then a few occasions over the year and its not getting any better.
It sure would have been nice for the President to stand up last night on TV and clearly tell those south of the border to stop sending their children to the U.S. because they will be sent back. That would have been a solid step in the right direction. And then instead of playing politics, he could have been a leader. But of course, that ain't our guy's way of doing business. He wants 3.7 Billion dollars to try to increase our capacity to deal with illegal aliens. Stop increasing our capacity and decrease the number of illegal aliens coming across the border. If you secure the border, you don't need more capacity. What a jackass this guy is. It gets worse every day.
Hell, now we're even losing Germany as an ally.

Since it seems many here, and elsewhere are making such a big deal that the POTUS has not made a trip to the border and therefore he can not possibly be well-informed of the situation, my obvious question is, "How can those of you criticizing him have such strong opinions, and how can you believe YOU have a clue, if you yourselves have not been to the border.
Seems like an obvious question. The critics can know what's going on without "going to the border" but the POTUS, with a staff of people feeding him information, can't????

President George W. Bush signing the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008.
WASHINGTON — It was one of the final pieces of legislation signed into law by President George W. Bush, a measure that passed without controversy, along with a pension bill and another one calling for national parks to be commemorated on quarters.
“This is a piece of legislation we’re very proud to sign,” a White House spokesman, Tony Fratto, told reporters on Dec. 23, 2008, as the president put his pen to the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, named for a 19th-century British abolitionist. “This program has been very effective around the world in trying to stop trafficking in persons.”
Now the legislation, enacted quietly during the transition to the Obama administration, is at the root of the potentially calamitous flow of unaccompanied minors to the nation’s southern border.
Originally pushed by a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers as well as by evangelical groups to combat sex trafficking, the bill gave substantial new protections to children entering the country alone who were not from Mexico or Canada by prohibiting them from being quickly sent back to their country of origin.
Instead, it required that they be given an opportunity to appear at an immigration hearing and consult with an advocate, and it recommended that they have access to counsel. It also required that they be turned over to the care of the Department of Health and Human Services, and the agency was directed to place the minor “in the least restrictive setting that is in the best interest of the child” and to explore reuniting those children with family members.....
