Why doesn't the Gang of
...a good deal of the Democratic opposition to John Cornyn’s proposed amendment to the Gang of 8 bill has nothing to do with border security. It has to do with DUIs. Specifically, Cornyn’s amendment would bar illegal immigrants with misdemeanor DUI convictions from ”probationary” legal status, which is the immediate legalization offered by Marco Rubio, et al, to most of the 11 million undocumented immigrants now living in the U.S.. For the pro-amnesty side, the exclusion of DUI offenders is apparently a deal-killer. There must be a lot of them!
The EffingBI: "We must listen in on EVERYONE(except the people actually planning terrorism) in order to stop terrorists!"
Surprisingly, Mueller claimed he wasn’t aware that the mosque that the Boston bombing suspects attended, the Islamic Society of Boston, was founded by a convicted supporter of terrorism.
Due to this and other reasons, Gohmert argued not enough was done to prevent the attack as the suspects’ radical Islamic ties were overlooked.
Decide for yourself whether or not that is a man with Alzheimer’s – but never forget this. Before they hated Sarah Palin, or Dick Cheney, or Donald Rumsfeld, or Condoleeza Rice, or George W Bush, the Left hated Ronald Wilson Reagan. They hated and feared him – and not least for the way that he destroyed the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in eight short years. It’s not even that he did it; it’s that he did it so apparently effortlessly. Reagan made his opponents look like chumps – which they were; I was on the other side during that decade, so I have some familiarity with the type – and he will not be forgiven for that until after his last opponent is dead in his bed of old age.
So the Brit NHS is so wonderful...
The facts are indeed dismal. Two thirds of NHS patients now have to wait 48 hours or more for a GP’s appointment and it is a rarity to find a local surgery open outside ordinary people’s working hours.
As a crisis of cash, bad management — and even the threat of entire hospital closures — engulfs our once-proud state health service, the sick are turning to casualty departments in desperation, and in increasing numbers, finding them over-stretched with waiting times of four hours for one in every 18 patients.
In a few alarming cases, the particularly vulnerable sick and old have died in ambulances waiting outside in queues.
A further problem for NHS patients is the waiting time to see a hospital specialist, because an appointment has to be authorised through a GP. The result? Some cancer sufferers don’t start treatment for two months after they first visit their doctor with suspected symptoms.
