    President Obama and Mexico President Nieto agreed to flood America with poor kids from third world countries to deepen our recession in 2012. American middleclass workers will be taxed billions to care and feed these children. We are still paying for bailing out wall street, General Motors, and losing 30% of our checks to taxes. Crime across America’s cities have triple because America government won’t seal our borders. So lets drop the pity card, deport.

    WELL SAID BOB!!!

    For once some one is actually practicing what they preach, job well done! Sadly there is so much fear mongering being spewed by career political parasites trying to get elected. That people can’t tell the difference between a helpless kid and a illegal who does not warrant help! Other countries are having “thousands” flee to their borders DAILY, numbering in the “millions”!!!

    This issue has also brought to light our countries lack of moral back bone and honor as to taking care of our “homeless” people in this country. Many are Vets and the majority are women with children, yet nobody suggested using these unused facilities for them??? The “truth” is, if any one of us was in the same situation these kids and people are in we would be trying to get here TOO!!!

    I still believe we as a nation and a people would have been better off invading Mexico than Iraq!

    Scott,

    Are you for real, do you really believe our President and that of a neighboring country would join forces to cause this country harm, REALLY???

    We will be taxed “billions” because of the bigotry, hate and fear mongering of the self serving agendas of a “minority”!

    As for the bailouts, how much has already been paid back? As for taxes I for one believe in a flat tax, while reducing the IRS by 90%!

    Crime has risen 30% because the futures of “millions” of Americans have been stolen due to known failure called the war on drugs!

    Seal our borders, really? How far are you going to run the fences in to the ocean? How many tunnels are there NOW between our border towns? What about the ocean access on both sides as well as our northern boarder? Why not just “eliminate” the illegal reasons the ‘majority” come for, guess what they wouldn’t come! Ask Israel how their fences are working, and how much it is costing their citizens! Common sense is the answer, “not” fear mongering, hate and bigotry!

    Deport those that warrant it, while holding those responsible for creating the illegal job these people come for! At the same time we send “billions” to these countries every year, start deducting what it cost us because of their citizens! Watch how quick these other countries start sealing their OWN BORDERS!!!

    IT IS WHAT IT IS, FACT!!!

    Mr. Pierce is simply an idiot. Mr. Buckel got it right.

  5. Scott Pierce says:

    Even most Democrats recognize President Obama has failed, except for a few like Skip.

  6. Rusty White says:

    Scott,

    Our President has not failed on his own, if Congress had put as much effort in to “doing their jobs”, as they did making “sure” this President failed, we would all be better off, FACT!

    I for one will not forget come election time, the “minority” who put their party and self serving beliefs and agendas “before” the good of this nation and it’s people as a AWHOLE!!
