This is nothing less than an outrage!!  We need to abolish DHS and DO IT NOW!!!!!!!  I feel really bad for this lady.  If I had the six grand I would give it to her myself and help her arrange a trip bypassing the USA.  Please let me know what you think.  Blessings Andrew

Ellen Richardson went to Pearson airport on Monday full of joy about flying to New York City and from there going on a 10-day Caribbean cruise for which she’d paid about $6,000.

But a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent with the Department of Homeland Security killed that dream when he denied her entry.

“I was turned away, I was told, because I had a hospitalization in the summer of 2012 for clinical depression,’’ said Richardson, who is a paraplegic and set up her cruise in collaboration with a March of Dimes group of about 12 others.

The Weston woman was told by the U.S. agent she would have to get “medical clearance’’ and be examined by one of only three doctors in Toronto whose assessments are accepted by Homeland Security. She was given their names and told a call to her psychiatrist “would not suffice.’’

Food Stamp Recruiters, Bingo, and Parties…. 2.2 Billion in erroneous payments…,Oh Snap!!!  This has to stop.

How about making more jobs??!!

Please read and let me know what you think.


Food stamps are the most inefficient, vastly expanding social welfare program in the country, according to a new study.

Forty-seven million people participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, and costs have increased over 358 percent since 2000.

The increase in recent years cannot be attributed to the economic recession, according to Michael Tanner, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, but lax eligibility requirements and an aggressive campaign by governments to boost their rolls.

“This program has expanded rapidly over the last decade in a way that is not justified by the recession that we went through,” Tanner said.

Darn Biased Media

The media said Sen Ted Cruz (R-TX) was long winded,  but Wendy Davis the State Senator in TX who filibustered the abortion bill was a folk hero.  This media bias is really getting annoying.  Please let me know what you think.  Andrew

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Tuesday and Wednesday spent more than 21 straight hours on the Senate floor making his case to his Senate colleagues and the American people for de-funding of ObamaCare. Most mainstream media outlets criticized the Texas senator’s speech.

Cruz’s talk – not technically a filibuster – got bombarded with negative reports by the big three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). Scott Whitlock, senior news analyst for Media Research Center, says those networks derided the conservative uprising against ObamaCare, mocking the freshman senator and calling his speech a “bizarre, long-winded protest” against funding the healthcare law.

“Though they’re actually covering Ted Cruz this time, their response to ObamaCare and all the problems with ObamaCare – other than what Ted Cruz said – has been largely to ignore it,” he reports. “They’ve ignored the problems with implementation; they’ve ignored the problems with the one-year delay of the mandate.”

I wish I could tell you that this is a joke

White House Celebrates Bisexual Visibility Day with an Official Closed-Door Event

Did you know that today is Bisexual Visibility Day?

You may not be aware, but they are at the White House and will be celebrating with an official event.

Seriously, this is not a joke.

Today, in honor of Bisexual Visibility Day there will be a White House roundtable discussion “about issues facing the bisexual community” attracting bisexual activists from around the nation.

This first-time White House event was called to my attention on Sunday when I saw a piece in the Miami Herald with the headline, “A voice for bisexuals, Miami activist heads to D.C.”

The piece highlighted Luigi Ferrer, who is program and grants development director for Pridelines Youth Services. The Miami Herald reports:

“I am the Florida representative,” said Ferrer, a longtime bisexual activist who joins about two-dozen others at the roundtable, which coincides with international Bisexual Visibility Day on Sept. 23.

“They decided to celebrate bisexuality day by inviting the national bisexual leadership roundtable to the White House for a policy meeting,” said Ferrer, who received an email invitation about a month ago from the Barack Obama administration.

“It’s a testament to this administration that they are focusing on all elements of the LGBT community and they should be applauded for hosting an event focused on some of the specific issues impacting bisexual people,” said Michael Cole-Schwartz, spokesman for HRC,Human Rights Campaign in Washington.

Intrigued by today’s White House roundtable discussion, I did a quick check and found in the Washington Post a piece dated August 22 announcing the event which included this puzzling statement:

The White House will hold a closed-door roundtable discussion on issues facing bisexuals Sept. 23.

Why a closed-door roundtable discussion in the “People’s House”? Wasn’t Obama’s administration supposed to be the most transparent ever?

I am shocked.

“Shocked,” because with all that is going on in our nation and the world, how does the White House find the time and resources for such an event?

Wouldn’t you just love to know what this bisexual “roundtable discussion” is costing the American taxpayer?

Do you think there will be pressure put on the Pentagon to hold such an event next year?
