We can get foreign soccer officials arrested in a foreign country because of their involvement in a sport, but we can’t find and remove illegal alien criminals from within our own borders?
Priorities, I guess.

So according to him it’s a problem for Republicans because if this goes all the way to the SCOTUS, they could overturn it? That’s what I understand based on what he said.
So would he rather that it had never been challenged in the first place?
Imagine the Seahawks refusing to play in the regular season because they could end up going to the Super Bowl, where they might lose!
Don’t take a stand for what’s right, because if you do, you might lose?
Glad our Founding Fathers didn’t feel thataway!

Kanye’s tweet uses a picture from “Glory” of a Black American willing to die fighting for freedom and thinks that is appropriate for his reaction to his iPhone’s issue?
Not even close.

Yes, a President can and has been held in contempt.
But that’s just words — and when that President just ignores the contempt charge and continues to direct his lackeys in their lawlessness and neither Congress nor the SCOTUS does anything to stop him, then what?
It’s like the principal telling the bully not to do it again. Until the bully knows it’s going to hurt more than the enjoyment he receives from his actions, he will keep doing it.
Bullies gotta bully.

“Is this the beginning of the major assault on everyone’s property rights?”
No, this is a next step in the further continuation of that assault.

“Moreover, the regulation could even conflict with two Supreme Court rulings.”
Like that matters to this administration.

“It also pointed out that the SAT10 test is not longer [sic] given in the school district.”
For what it’s worth, Pearson – the SAT10 publisher – is no longer making that test available, so that point is worthless. This spring sees the end of the SAT10.
And as a 30+ veteran of teaching, I’m still puzzled why so many teachers are so upset when their teaching ability is judged in part by how well their students know what those teachers were supposed to have taught them.
Not to mention that our immigration isn’t “broken”: the problem is that it isn’t enforced.

Are people biologically predisposed to commit crimes? Yes, that is one part of the natural human nature we all share. We are all sinners and are all predisposed to sin, including crime.
But Ann is right about criminal activity being part of an individual’s culture. The American culture has historically understood the sin nature, and our churches and public schools USED to teach about it and how to overcome it.
The acceptance of criminal activity as “normal” IS part of some cultures; it has NOTHING to do with skin color — even in the inner cities of America.
Leave the Clinton syndicate out of this thhhhommy. Not that they haven't helped people along on their way out. Lots of weapons sold to weird allies for donations too. But yes thhhhommy, we rarely shoot people in the face that may actually need it.
Really Thom? What's the motivation for robbery, looting, car jacking, drug selling etc. Those are statistically more black crimes, seems greed motivated as well. White crime does tend to be less violent to the victims though. Nice try, thanks for playing, now move along troll.

I hope you caught my sarcasm, ken john.
But your question begs another question: If they don’t belong to the State, then why aren’t the people who made them responsible for taking care of them? Why do they take my tax dollars to pay for them?

I would tell you, but it would take words, and there are no words.

Squidy, try leaving two pencils like that on your desk overnight. Will gravity make one of them turn by morning?
 May 26, 2015 at 6:30pm
Snow, you are correct.
Squidyman, science cannot and never will be able to test the spiritual world, even though it is real.
Science can deal only with the physical universe.

Those kids have no idea what they are “playing” with and the powers of the rulers of the darkness of this world.
I don’t think this will end well. I don’t the initial reactions of fear and screaming will keep most of those kids from returning and playing more with this kind of thing, opening themselves up to the wrong things.
Be not deceived, demonic activity is alive and well on planet Earth.

I agree with the “good” comment, but I have to wonder if it made/makes any difference that any court ruled that the amnesty program must be put on hold?
How many illegals have not been deported even after the court ruling?

“Under federal ethics disclosure rules, declared candidates do not have to report assets worth less than $1,000.”
There is no problem here, then.
None of the that family, in my estimation, is worth anything close to $1,000.
Morally and ethically, the clintons are "worthless" but they have accumulated monetary wealth from their corruption and criminality.

ComeN, “But the bigger issue I don’t understand is why do you care so much about LDS doctrine and the text of the Book of Mormon?”
Because it is not teaching the Truth of the Word of God, the Bible.
I wasn’t aware of the stone in the hat, though. I thought maybe it was two pencils over “Yes” and “No.”
Same thing, though.

It’s one thing for someone’s kids to be out playing – after dark – in someone else’s business, taking snacks and TVs and such. That’s perfectly fine.
It’s quite another to raise reasonable kids who do what kids do without helicopter parents – or more likely government schools and “teachers” – hovering over them 24/7. Kids can’t be allowed out on their own, behaving themselves and enhancing their own experiences and education, you know. That will never do. They’ve gotta be under someone else’s control — OR ELSE!
