Quotes

...Walsh said he made an unintentional mistake and did not intend to plagiarize. "I don't want to blame my mistake on PTSD, but I do want to say it may have been a factor" If you don't want to blame PTSD, then you shouldn't have. And you shouldn't have...
...– Pruitt A Rainey, 22, of Haw River, North Carolina – Gunnar W Zwilling, 20, of Florissant, Missouri – Sergio S Abad, 21, of Morganfield, Kentucky "My son Lucas exists because of them ... I promise that my son will grow up appreciating the sacrifices of men he never knew." (U S Army photo by Staff Sgt. Mikki L Sprenkle)
In a major rebuke to the US, Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren said that John Kerry was not invited to ceasefire talks led by Egypt. "Oren cited the Obama administration’s strained relations with Egypt, and the “tension” in ties between the US and Israel. To Israel’s chagrin, he said, America has consequently not been able to play a more constructive role in this crisis, whereas previous administrations had been able to do so in past crises." This is a direct result of the Obama administration's antagonistic approach to relations with Israel...
...Like hell. According to reports just in after a news conference, "Texas Adjutant General John Nichols said his troops would simply be "referring and deterring" immigrants and not detaining people -- though Nichols said the National Guard could if asked. "We think they'll come to us and say, `Please take us to a Border Patrol station," Nichols said." THIS is securing the border? The TSA is doing more than this, and they aren't even checking ID's on illegal immigrants anymore. This is a sham. 12 mil a month to post Guardsmen there, and all they'll be doing is tour guides? My suggestion is that they hand them a map to California and send them there. I think that's a fair deal- California sends companies and millionaires to Texas, and they send them immigrants. Gov Perry is running a huge risk, with zero payoff, hoping he'll look 'leader-y'. Granted, he's looking far far more Presidential than the current office, but that's not difficult to do It may be that should he do anything more than that, he runs the risk of the WH federalizing the guard troops, a-la Little Rock 9, and losing any semblance of control. But what are the chances of THAT? Gov Perry, you are doing zero to address the problem of our borders, or of the illegal immigrants. Time to start over. Wolf"
