Hey Colin, okay lock and load, your intelligent, lighten up man, Over 4000 families, who made 1,000,000, paid 0 tax last year, 14000 families who made 500,000 last year paid 0 fed tax, let's stick with fed tax, and not add in state, local sales tax, estate tax etc. A person making $10 million or more (Romney) pays 50% less than I do, hey man, that's not fair, your okay with that, I think they should pay their fair share, if they raised the taxes on the wealthy just 5% and closed the loop holes, we could send 500,000 students to college. I don't rely on others, but I like to lend a helping hand when I can, not everyone's fortunate, poor, needy, elderly, veterans, wounded vets, people with learning and physical disablities and so on. By the way, I've made something of myself. I live up north and own only one home and am content.BB

Weekly Prayer Update: October 4, 2012

Posted on Oct 03, 2012.

As we pray for the Lord to guide us in choosing godly leadership for our land, may this video on the impact of prayer in determining the future of a nation be an encouragement to you. 

 

You put your money where your heart is....this is where Obama's heart is.

Not with YOUR appendage!!

Oh, I see, Daniel shouldn't children, maybe he had to cut corners because of the Bush administration, he put us at the edge of a depression. BB

It is called inflation. We technically havent given anymore money of value, just enough to cover inflation.

You haven't PAID for anything in years.  Only passed on some debt.  UN likes to have more debt to pass along, and they can have it as soon as WE get REAL MONEY.  Hook 'em up with the fed.  After we get REAL money.

I sure would like to know what financial benefits this country's politicians are receiving that they don't remove us from the worthless United Nations?  There is always a money trail somewhere?

We need to kick the U.N. out of America

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
