The Border Patrol claims their own chaplains are “supporting the spiritual needs of the minors for the limited time they are at the center.” But a counselor at one of the camps said she never saw a single minister and that the kids weren’t even allowed a Sunday service.
Dem. Rep. Cuellar: ‘Floored Me’ to See Obama Shoot Pool Rather than Visit Border
MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked Texas Democrat Rep Henry Cuellar what he thought of seeing President Obama shooting pool and drinking beer with Colorado governor John Hickenlooper.
“When I saw that, it just really floored me. If he’s saying he’s too busy to go down to the border, but you have time to drink a beer, play pool, the optics and the appearance just mean he’s not paying attention to this humanitarian crisis.”
Maybe I shouldn’t tell all y’all this, but cow tipping is an urban legend. Trust me. I live in a dairy farming community. You can’t push over a cow. I’m not sure how the idea started, but I’d put money on some beered up manure kickers convincing a bunch of naive yuppies that it’s what they do for fun. You know, cuz after the yuppies go home, it’s so fun to laugh at them for believing in it. Kinda like how we laugh at them for believing cow farts are threatening the planet. ::snork::
You doubt me? Please. You can read up on the science (physical or biological) of cow tipping @ http://modernfarmer.com/2013/09/cow-tipping-myth-or-bullcrap/. Or you can just google “cow tipping” at YouTube, cuz you know, if it was real, there’s be reams of videos and there’s not. Well, actually, there is ONE actual genuine cow tipping video on YouTube:
It isn’t enough any more to just let LGBTs feel safe about coming out of the closet. Now we have to shove anyone who doesn’t actively embrace their lifestyles into the closet.

As far as I can see, Barack Obama is only good at two things … playing games and partying. This is no surprise to those of us who were familiar with his postage stamp resumé back in 2008. I’m guessing the detoxing-from-kool-aid sheeple are feeling all kinds of shocked and dismayed though. It’s like when the ‘rents went away that time and the party was fun Fun FUN … until you woke up to a wrecked house, a slamming hangover, and a nagging suspicion you forgot to use a rubber with that girl … or was it more than one girl?
As I write this, Oblamer is in Austin, Texas, for yet another round of kissing up to rich Democrats. The White House invited Texas Governor Perry to have the tingle-making opportunity to shake Teh Won’s HAND at the airport but … can you believe this? Perry said thanks, but no thanks! The nerve of that RAAAACIST Republican bastard!
Actually, what Perry replied to the invite was,
“I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the tarmac will not allow for a thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas. I would instead offer to meet with you at any time during your visit to Texas for a substantive meeting to discuss this critical issue. With the appropriate notice, I am willing to change my schedule to facilitate this request.
“Since first calling the issue of border security to your attention in a 2009 letter requesting 1,000 National Guard troops to assist with securing our border, I have followed up with several further communications inviting you to tour the border and view this crisis firsthand. In addition, I have provided information on how the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety have supported, and continue to support, surge operations along a border, which has become a nexus for criminal activity of all kinds.
“At any point while you are here, I am available to sit down privately so we can talk and you may directly gain my state’s perspective on the effects of an unsecured border and what is necessary to make it secure.”
Yeah. That’s really going to happen. NOT. The best the lazy bastard could manage was to add “a roundtable to discuss the border crisis” to his Texas itinerary. That is SO typical of this schmuck’s entire presidency. He never goes to look at the situation or talk to the people involved or, you know, get advice from anyone who actually understands the problem. He just takes a break from his parties and his golfing to wag his Royal Finger, blame Republicans and yap about how Congress needs to spend more money on the problem.
More than 50,000 undocumented young people have arrived in the United States since October, mostly coming across the Texas border after traveling thousands of miles across Mexico from their homes in Central America. Many of them are diseased and about 1/3 of the young girls have been sexually abused by the men who are using them to get themselves and their drugs and weapons into this country.
AP described the border like this:
“All through the night, government buses idle near the border wall — a mile or two from the river — awaiting loads of immigrants. The zone is patrolled by no fewer than six local, state and federal law-enforcement agencies, including gunboats crewed by Texas state troopers with night-vision goggles and the Border Patrol’s white and green trucks. Helicopters swoop above the winding waterway. But there’s little cat-and-mouse pursuit. Every day, hundreds of immigrants walk up to agents, wave to their remote cameras or simply wait to be picked up on the side of a road.”
