Mexico is angry... Wow!


Mexico is angry... Wow!
 And make certain you read, at the bottom of this page, the part that says it will take 30 more seconds to read.!
Please forward to all you know and ask them to forward to all they know.
The shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State of Sonora, Mexico
do not like it.  Can you believe the nerve of these people? It's almost funny.
The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico ! !

The state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson
to complain about Arizona 's new employer crackdown on illegal’s from Mexico.
It seems that many Mexican illegals are returning to their hometowns and the
officials in the Sonora state government are ticked-off.  A delegation of nine
state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to state that Arizona's
new 'Employer Sanctions Law' will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state.
At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora, - Arizona's southern neighbor –
made up of mostly small towns - cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and
schools that it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns from the
USA without jobs or money.

   The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1, punishes Arizona employers who
knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States.
Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license.  The Mexican
legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns,
placing a burden on THEIR state government instead of ours.

'How can Arizona pass a law like this?' asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez,
who represents Nogales .  'There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have
a friend or relative working in Arizona ,' she said, speaking in Spanish.  'Mexico is not
prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans
working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their
hometowns in Sonora without jobs,' she said 'We are one family, socially and economically,'
she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona.

Wrong! The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico, and its
taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico's citizens. It's time for the
Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States
and to start taking care of its/their own needs.

Too bad that other states within the USA don't pass a law just like that passed by Arizona.
Maybe that's the answer, since our own Congress will do nothing.!

*New Immigration Laws*

Be sure to read to the bottom or you will miss the message...
1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
2. All ballots will be in this nation's language.
3. All government business will be conducted in our language.
4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.
5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps,
    no health care, or any other government assistance programs.
    Any who are a burden will be deported.
7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal
    to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.
8. If foreigners come here and buy land, their options will be restricted. Certain
parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into
this country.
9. Foreigners may have NO protests; NO demonstrations, NO waving of a foreign flag,
    no political organizing, NO bad-mouthing our president or his policies.
   These will lead to deportation.
10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and, when caught,
       sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you.Too strict?  The above laws are the current immigration laws of MEXICO!
If it's good for Americans to obey Mexican laws, then it's good vice versa.!!!

GAO Sting Finds It Easy to Fake It, Get Obamacare Premiums By Maggie Fox and Joel Seidman


Eleven out of 12 fake applications for government-subsidized health insurance got through a verification process and the bogus beneficiaries are still covered, the Government Accountability Office said Tuesday.
The GAO launched the sting to check to see how well the Obamacare process checks for counterfeit applications. The results were messy, GAO’s Seto Bagdoyan says in testimony prepared for a hearing Wednesday of the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee.

“The federal marketplace approved coverage for 11 of our 12 fictitious applicants who initially applied online, or by telephone,” Bagdoyan, who directs GAO’s Forensic Audits and Investigative Service, said in testimony obtained by NBC News.
The GAO operatives made up 18 applications -– 12 applied online or by telephone, and six started out looking for in-person help. All were completely false, with fake incomes and counterfeit documentation.
“The federal Marketplace approved coverage for 11 of our 12 fictitious applicants who initially applied online, or by telephone."
Only one of the group of 12 was correctly told he or she could not apply. “For one application, the marketplace denied coverage because GAO’s fictitious applicant did not provide a Social Security number as part of the test,” Bagdoyan said.
The other 11 got through and received federal subsidies to help pay for their health insurance.
“The total amount of these credits for the 11 approved applications is about $2,500 monthly or about $30,000 annually. We also obtained cost-sharing reduction subsidies, according to marketplace representatives, in at least nine of the 11 cases,” Bagdoyan said.
After encountering all sorts of trouble getting in-person help, six more fake applicants were turned away.
“We are seeing a trend with Obamacare information systems: under every rock, there is incompetence, waste and the potential for fraud,” committee Chairman Dave Camp, a Michigan Republican, told NBC News. “Last month, we found that the administration was unable to verify income or eligibility for insurance subsidies. Now, we learn that in many cases, the exchange is unable to screen out fake identities or documents.”
People are sworn to tell the truth in their applications, on pain of perjury. The Internal Revenue Service has the power to claw back any subsidies that were improperly paid, by taking the money out of next year's tax refund, if there is one.
A spokesman for the Health and Human Services Department said the process for verifying claims made in applications was still ongoing. “As the GAO notes in its interim report, the steps we take to ensure that individuals and families get the premium support and coverage they deserve, and that no one receives a benefit they shouldn't, are ongoing and have not concluded," spokesman Kevin Griffis said.
"While the marketplace has several layers of safeguards in place to verify consumer data, including requiring consumers to submit accurate information to qualify for health coverage, we are examining this report carefully and will work with GAO to identify additional strategies to strengthen our verification processes.”
It’s been a bad week for Obamacare. A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the federal premium subsidies are illegal, although a different appeals court said they were fine in a separate case.
Republicans say they’d redouble efforts to get rid of the law, although many experts say they will be hard-pressed to do so this late in the process.
"Obamacare is a mess. Its broken structure invites waste, fraud, and abuse that will cost the American taxpayer millions in subsidies to individuals whose eligibility the administration won't bother to verify,” Rep. Charles Boustany, a Louisiana Republican who chairs the oversight subcommittee, said in a statement.
“No wonder hard-working Americans are fed up with a government that spends too much on broken programs that aren't doing the job they're intended to. We can and must do better."
The 2010 Affordable Care Act aims to get more Americans covered by health insurance, and seeks to improve the quality of the insurance.
To help people pay for the insurance, the law, known widely as Obamacare, provides for federal subsidies for certain people who want to buy insurance providing modest coverage. The federal government foots the whole bill.
No one quite knows how much it will cost because it’s not clear precisely how many people have applied and precisely how many would qualify for subsidies.
The Congressional Budget Office estimates the federal government will have to shell out $36 billion for all coverage provisions for fiscal year 2014 and another $1.4 trillion for fiscal years 2015–2024.
People get their premiums subsidized via tax credits toward their federal income taxes. “These advance premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions are not paid directly to enrolled consumers; instead, the federal government pays them to issuers on consumers’ behalf,” Bagdoyan said.
It’s complicated to try to calculate someone’s income, their tax liability and verify citizenship –- illegal residents can’t buy insurance on the exchanges. It’s one of the reasons the federal exchange crashed when it rolled out in October, as did several state exchanges. It is working better now. But the GAO team found holes in the verification process.
“The marketplace asked two of three applicants with inactive Social Security numbers to submit proof of citizenship, identity, and income, but it asked a third only for income information,” Bagdoyan said.
"Our coverage remains in effect for all 11 approved applications.”
“For each of our six online applications that were among the total group of 12, we failed to clear an identity checking step,” he added. “However, we subsequently were able to obtain coverage for all six of these applications begun online by completing them by phone.” As of July 17, two of the fake applicants were told their citizenship had been verified.
“Regardless of the status of any post-approval communications, our coverage remains in effect for all 11 approved applications,” he said.
GAO said about inconsistencies had been identified in 3.5 million applications for health insurance through the exchanges.






 They’ll hate you whether you win or lose. So you might as well win.
When you ask . . . from President Obama on down, how many undocumented (ILLEGAL) Immigrants are really in the USA. He and they don’t know. Or pretend they don’t know. Or say that there are no ILLEGAL Immigrants, just Undocumented Immigrants. Or they will just outright lie about it.
If you were to ask anyone in authority in the President’s (Obama) Office how many undocumented (ILLEGAL) Immigrant children are crossing the border every day, or have already crossed the border. They don’t know. Or will lie about it.
When you ask the President (Obama) or anyone from his Office what exactly they will do with the $3.7 BILLION they say they need to deal with the explosion of undocumented (ILLEGAL) Immigrant children. They don’t know. Or at least they can’t pinpoint any of it. Or will lie about it.
If you were to ask the President (Obama) or any of his sycophants how many Americans are REALLY unemployed or underemployed, he and they can't give you a straight answer. Well actually they can. But they won’t.
If you were to ask the President (Obama) and all of his National Security People to give you the full details of the MURDER of some 300 Passengers on the shot-down Malaysian Passenger Plane over Ukraine . . . as in: Who did it? And who’s going to be held responsible?

Coke, Pepsi, Kraft and General Mills PAY millions to kill GMO labeling


Chemical company lobbyists 'weaving their webs' as Coke, Pepsi, Kraft and General Mills pony up millions to kill New York GMO labeling bill

(NaturalNews) They call them "campaign contributions," but what are they really? -- Just kickbacks, bribery and money laundering. Remember when George W. Bush was running the country and made all that money off "insider business" deals while subsidizing GMO high-fructose corn syrup? Now it's worse with Obama. Still, New York is the next precedent state "case" for saving America's health, as two bills are being reviewed that can put the brakes on GMO toxic food, by simply labeling it as such.
Most Americans now know that GMOs are toxic, but they don't know what to do about it, because it's not labeled. Soon, in New York, consumers may not have to look anywhere but on the label, and the GMO-cancer news will infiltrate their minds, as they begin to read MORE about this new label, and wonder why it's there. And who are the kings of junk science that want you addicted and dying from genetically "mutated" food? -- Coke, Pepsi, Kraft and General Mills. Sure, you think of soda and processed cheese as bad for your health, but you have NO IDEA why they're spending $70 million on contributions to politicians.

State of New York says no to GMO!

Grassroots groups are growing fast and making headway in New York, demanding full disclosure and transparency when it comes to the food supply. "They are working this very hard and they are not going to let up because of the threat," said Laura Haight of the New York Public Interest Research Group, supporting the food labeling bill. GMO has not been proven safe, and human beings should not be guinea pigs for biotech research. Two bills have been introduced in the New York legislature to require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered food, including processed foods, GM seed and seed stock. Plus, the bills impose penalties for misbranding!
Assembly Bill A0-3525: "Provides for the labeling of raw agriculture commodities, processed foods, seed, and seed stock produced with genetic engineering; defines terms; imposes penalties for false labels and misbranding; sets forth exemptions."
Senate Bill S0-3835: More of the same language and labeling requirements for GMO cancer-food!

Ukraine, Gaza, Iraq: Obama dithers, hesitates and then goes golfing


On a trip to Ireland during the 1990s, I was struck by how little public discussion there was about “The Troubles.” Coming from New York, I expected the dispute between Catholic Ireland and Protestant Northern Ireland to be the topic of the day, ­every day.
Back home, I asked an Irish-American friend why Ireland seemed less engaged — and ­enraged — than New York. He fairly spat out his answer: “That’s because if they talk about it, they’ll have to do something about it.”
My friend’s disgust came to mind as I watched President Obama dance around Russian involvement in the downing of the Malaysian airliner.
The basic facts were well known, yet just when you thought he would announce a firm American response, he pulled back, saying things such as he didn’t “want to get ahead of the facts,” and demanding an “honest investigation.”
To admit the truth would force him to do something. And we clearly have the wrong president for that kind of leadership, as events around the world illustrate.
From Ukraine to Iraq, from Syria to Asia and Latin America, not to mention our own southern border, the world is in chaos, and the president dithers, hesitates and then ­goes golfing.



An idea worth exploring….


.... Replace all the flight attendants with good-looking strippers!  What the hell - they don't serve food anymore, so what's the loss?

The strippers would triple the alcohol sales and get a 'party atmosphere' going in the cabin.  And, of course, every
businessman in the country would start flying again, expecting to see naked women.

Because of the tips, female flight attendants wouldn't need a salary, thus saving even more money.  The tips would be so good we could charge the 'ladies' for working the plane and have them kick back 20% of the tips, including lap dances and "special services."

Muslims would be afraid to get on the planes for fear of  seeing naked women.  Hijackings would come to a screeching halt, and the airline industry would see record revenues.

This is definitely a win-win situation if we handle it right -- a golden opportunity to turn a liability into an asset.

Why didn't Bush or Obama think of this?
Why do I still have to do everything myself?

FCC That Wants to Commandeer Control of the Internet Just Had Their Website Crash - Twice!

BY: Seton Motley, Contributing Author: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has already been twice unanimously rebuked by the D.C. Circuit Court in previous attempts to impose network neutrality.
Their response to these clear demonstrations of their lack of juice? President Obama’s appointee, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is considering power grabbing the entire orchard — to then squeeze net neutrality (and all private investment) out of it.
The grove in question is the entire World Wide Web — to be infected by the government’s imposition of Title II Reclassification:

Title II is the uber-regulatory superstructure with which we have strangled landline phones – you know, that bastion of technological and economic innovation. Which do you find more impressive – your desktop dialer or your smartphone?

Title II regulations date back to at least the 1930s – so you know they’ll be a perfect fit for the ultra-modern, incredibly dynamic, expanding-like-the-universe World Wide Web.

This would be the most detrimental of all Information Superhighway road blocks. Rather than the omni-directional, on-the-fly innovation that now constantly occurs, Title II is a Mother-May-I-Innovate, top-down traffic congest-er. Imagine taking a 16 lane Autobahn down to just a grass shoulder.
The FCC has begun a rulemaking process on this ginormous usurpation, which includes a just-concluded (first) comment period, during which the FCC’s website crashed — not once, but twice.
Get that? The commission that is looking to yet again defy the law, multiple court rulings, and rationality to commandeer control of the Internet, is serially unable to keep its own website operational and online.
The first time their website went down, it was hacked. The FCC denied the hack, instead trying to blame an influx of commenters generated by a cable TV show. That airs at 10pm. On Sunday night. Two days before the site actually collapsed:
An FCC spokesperson contacted us to say its statement to Vice about the recent site crash was misconstrued. The commission says it has no evidence of a malicious attack; if anything, a high volume of traffic caused the collapse.…The FCC spokesperson was in fact telling a fib. Sound familiar?
The truth eventually outed.
Vice says it confirmed with a "high-level FCC source" that the FCC site suffered a database denial-of-service attack.The FCC website crashed again coming down the Comment Period home stretch. This time it in fact appeared to be the result of too much traffic. Which is hardly any more heartening to their uber-regulating the Internet.
So they had to extend the Comment Period. Sound familiar?
ObamaCare Deadline Extended After Website's Technical TroubleYet another reminder that government is the only entity that complains about having too many customers.
The FCC is now blaming their incessant website failures on a lack of money. They asked this year for $375 million. The Republican-led House of Representatives wants to give them $358 billion. The FCC’s 2012 budget was $340 million. Methinks they can make do.
Meanwhile, the FCC seems to have managed to this year alone scrape together one billion brand new dollars to push government Wi-Fi on schools. Which angers everyone - “especially the schools.”
All of this Internet professionalism emanates from a Commission that describes itself thus:
(T)he United States' primary authority for communications law, regulation and technological innovation.The FCC wantonly ignores and flouts communications law - which courts have again and again asserted doesn’t give it any authority over the Internet.
And I would posit that the private sector - which built the World Wide Web into the free speech-free market Xanadu we all know and love - is “the United States’ primary authority for…technological innovation.” Not a government bureaucracy that can’t even keep it’s own website going.
The FCC certainly is a “primary authority for…regulation.” Whether they have the authority to impose it or not. Even when regulation clearly is not needed. The Internet isn’t broken - why is the perpetually-broken government trying to “fix” it?
So the FCC is trying to commandeer control of the entire World Wide Web. Yet has zero authority to do so. Yet is incapable of keeping a website online - or telling the truth about why. Yet is pressing forward anyway.
How very Obama Administration of them.
