that the world doesn't end when they don't roll over for the Evil Party.
Senators and other sources inside the meeting described the gathering as “testy” and “direct” — and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) accused Obama of acting two-faced by asking for GOP support on regulatory reform only to push forward with a bill supported mainly by Democrats. Others felt that the meeting may have made already tense relations between the two parties even worse.
"The more he talked, the more he got upset," Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) said. “He needs to take a valium before he comes in and talks to Republicans and just calm down, and don’t take anything so seriously. If you disagree with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re attacking their motives — and he takes it that way and tends then to lecture and then gets upset.”
He doesn't seem to take it very well when "I won" doesn't end the argument. Or anybody stands up to him on any thing. Too bad, Obama, because they're supposed to oppose you when they think you're wrong and when the people who elected them say to. Deal with it.
And if anybody argues with a straight face that the press isn't in Obama's pocket, they're either a serious liar or a fool.
Pointing out once again that Calderon is a liar. And so are the NSD clowns who support him.
Figures can lie when used by politicians. Mr. Calderon repeated a several-year-old contention that something like 80 percent of the arms used by Mexican drug warriors have been traced to the United States. The claim was a lie when his government first asserted it, and repeating it before our Congress doesn’t make it true. This figure represents the percentage of those guns (a few thousand) submitted by Mexican authorities for tracing here. . .
In fact, Mexico’s cartels get their guns on the international market and most of what they buy aren’t the semiautomatic sporting arms they could get here, but fully automatic military weapons, grenades, rocket launchers and the like from China, Israel, Korea and Russia. According to the Los Angeles Times, most of this weaponry flows into Mexico over that nation’s southern border with Guatemala, not over her northern border with the U.S.
The great thing about gun control is you can never have too much of it. Chicago goes about as far as a city can go, but you can always blame it, in Daley’s case, on those intransigent downstaters and their insistence on not going farther. But the last thing Daley would want is for the state to actually pass something. At some point you run out of people to blame, just like in fiscal matters you eventually run out of other people’s money.
At some point the gig is going to be up. Pretty soon for Daley, Bloomberg, Nutter, Menino, and all the other big city mayors. Maybe they can switch to blaming the Supreme Court or the Constitution, but it doesn’t seem to me that’s quite the same tool they’ve been using. That’s probably why Daley is losing it. Heavens forbid he level with voters about having to make hard decisions to bring the city’s crime down.
Oh, about those troops Obama decided to send to the border?
Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.
Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.
Translation: "Don't you dare stop any Mexicans illegally crossing the border! You're just supposed to stop stuff heading south!"
Response should be: "Fuck you, Calderon, you don't run this country."
And guess which prophet will be the ONLY one this would be enforced about?
Demanding a permanent ban on Facebook, over two dozen Pakistani religious groups working under the umbrella of the JuD have decided to contact the UN for enacting a global law “against blasphemy of prophets and awarding death penalty to violators.”
And somewhere, hiding out, is the magazine catch for the Sistema. And I can't reassemble it until I find it. I bleepin' HATE it when parts take a trip on their own.
