  1. More on Rubio from the AFGE Union News

    He wants to cut the Veterans Administration by out-lawing whistle blowers and such, union killing IOWs.

    Yet 12% of the Veterans return to America and become homeless. The guy is a crook.

  2. avatar Kyle says:

    Jeh (Duh) Johnson is such a incompetent imbecile when it comes to the current position he holds, only the “Useless One” (BO) could exhibit that much ignorance as to appoint him to head DH(IN)S.

  3. avatar Leland says:

    Jeff Sessions makes an excellent point about the media denying an honest discussion of the immigration issue. Case in point, last Sunday there was a piece about Miami resident Gloria Estefan on CBS Sunday Morning and it was supposed to be a teaching moment about immigrants. Sure, she is talented and obviously a success. But how about the fact that the media has buried the articles done by the Sun Sentinel, one of the major South Florida newspapers, about how over 600 million a year in welfare benefits is going to Cuban immigrants here because they claim they were persecuted by that government.

    A huge number of them are getting Medicaid, SSI, food stamps, and housing. But their fear of the Cuban government does not prevent them from going back to that country for months at a time. We’ve become the retirement system for many thousands who never paid a nickel into our system. Holding up Estefan and her husband as typical is dishonest. The same newspaper published a year long study in January of this year called Plundering America which showed the huge amount of crime committed by those of Cuban birth. While they are 4% of the state’s population, they commit 72% of health care fraud in Florida. That’s only one example. But you won’t see that on the major networks.

    As for all the languages being spoken in major cities, how can expect that to be anything but a negative for students who speak English.
