Yeah, this is going to work out well

For the gang members, that is.
Teenage criminals and gang members from Central America have been using “a loophole” to stay in the country, border agent Chris Cabrera revealed. Under current policy, unaccompanied minors are allowed to stay in the country if they have family in the United States and say they have none in their home country, regardless of their background.

“Even if he is a confirmed gang member, a confirmed criminal, even by self-admission, we for some reason don’t send them back to their home country — we release them into our country,” Cabrera said.
So, is Obama so desperate to suck-up to hispanics that he doesn't care?  Does he consider the gangs coming in a plus?  Do the dirtbags in the Chamber of Commerce who want cheap illegal labor want it so bad they don't want even the gang members filtered out?  Some of all the above?

Why isn't he getting the Christie treatment?  Because Gov. Howler is a socialist anti-2nd Amendment Democrat, why else?

I missed something yesterday: the date the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.  Ace has a bunch of stuff on it, including a link(pdf) to Thank God for the Atomic Bomb, a piece that retains ability to piss off all the right people.  Including this paragraph:
Arthur T. Hadley said recently that those for whom the use of the A-bomb was "wrong" seem to be implying "that it would have been better to allow thousands on thousands of American and Japanese infantrymen to die in honest hand-to-hand combat on the beaches than to drop those two bombs." People holding such views, he notes, "do not come from the ranks of society that produce infantrymen or pilots."

The assumption that the bombs were justified requires ignoring the seven months from January to august 1945 in which the imperial Japanese were seeking a negotiated peace.

Approaches were made through the Soviets (who entered the war with Japan at the time of the bombs), Portugal and the Vatican.

all of those were rejected out of hand as "premature"

The only Japanese condition was that the emperor be retained - which in the event he was.

The myths of "necessity" and of "lives saved" came without exception from politicians, not generals.

In terms of the right people being upset - that included a good cross section of serving generals at the time, who came out to condemn the actions as criminal.

If there was a useful legacy of the bombings (and of the totally unjustified fire bombings of Dresden and Hamburg when the war in Europe was within days of ending anyway) it is to show that there is no atrocity too big for our illustrius leaders to carry out in the service of their own egos
