I’m tired of hearing how “policy” always overrules common sense.

I was talking to a co-worker of mine today. A very cool guy who always has his s**t together. He has been with us for a year, following 20 years working in military intelligence for the Army. Specifically, we were talking about the Syrians recently caught in Honduras and at the border. He says this is going on for years and only now does the media bother reporting it. They were trying to make the powers that be notice what was going on, and was stonewalled every time. I asked him, in his professional opinion, how many people are there currently in the United States that he would consider jihadist with the potential to do us harm, and he said between 7,000 and 8,000. Even if only one percent of that number actually do anything, that is still a lot of dead American citizens. We have been and continue to be invaded.

I have a friend who will be wrapping up a week in Paris this weekend before spending a week in Rome. I sent him a message on Facebook about this. His response was “f*** em’.”
I agree. We leave for Istanbul for our thanksgiving tomorrow. We will avoid any large crowds or demonstrations, but otherwise it is just our usual thanksgiving trip. Now the south and west sides of my Chicago home town-that we would never do.

So why don’t they all combine forces and destroy ISIS themselves instead of depending on the infidels to do it?
The problem is is that we don’t trust our government to do a decent job of checking out exactly who these people are. It’s obvious they can’t even protect our national borders so how do we know they are bothering to check out these people? If we knew that the refugees are being put through the wringer before being allowed in people may sing a different tune.
I might lend a more sympathetic ear to their plight if they wouldn’t jack up the simplest order every time.
Every. Damn. Time.
The only fast food place worth peeing on if it were on fire is Chik-Fil-A.

That’s not stunning. That result is unsurprising and expected.

These days, if you are black and any company provides a paid service doesn’t kiss your ass and give everything to you on a silver platter, then cry racism.

The left would call me a climate change denier. I don’t deny that the climate is changing. What I do deny is that mankind has played anything near as significant of a role in making it happen, or that we can do anything to stop it. The Earth and its environment will do whatever the hell it wants to do, and there isn’t a damn thing you, I, or any hippy can do about it.
The earth and the environment don't "want" for anything. They just do. But to think we don't have an impact on our environment is a very head-in-the-sand approach.

Nice try, Democraps. Your list of Obama’s “accomplishments” are only there because they fudged the numbers.

I think all of the candidates, except Bush, did well. They maintained control of the debate over the moderators. The talking heads certainly didn’t like hearing the truth about the media. And they finally started attacking Hildabeast and Comrade Bernie more than each other.

Alright, let’s take my son’s situation and see how well it matches with Ted Cruz’s, and if is eligible to be POTUS. My son was born in Australia. I was a U.S. Citizen holding perminant residency in Australia. My wife was Australian. A month after he was born, we went to the U.S. Consulet in Sydney, where he was issued a “certificate of birth of a United States citizen abroad” and a U.S. Passport. I produced my Louisiana birth certificate, Louisiana marriage license, and my son’s New a South Wales birth certificate to do that. We moved back to the United States when he was a year and a half old. He holds current U.S. And Australian passports.
So, can my son one day be President of the United States?
I believe that if Barrack Hussein Obama II can, then so can your son.
Short answer, no.
And we have no basis to believe that Bahri is not a natural born citizen . . . unless you believe his 'released' birth certificate.
You are a citizen..so that is strike one..
Your wife was Australian but you have a LA marriage license, so you were married here then moved there? Was she a "legal resident" of the US at the time? because if so...son is all good...
the thing that holds every one up is that they have this rabid attachment to "being born on US soil" in order to be a "natural born citizen"....but that isn't the definition or how the EARLY court system defined the term...by EARLY I am talking about within 50 years of the Constitution being written... when some of the Framers were still alive and KNEW what they actually meant when they wrote it..
Here is the LEGAL and Constitutional Congressional passages on Citizenship
Under Title 8 of the U.S. Code, Section 1401 defines the following as citizens of the United States upon birth… or natural-born citizens:
This is the part that pertains to your son...
"• Anyone born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)"
You live here now, he has lived her more than 5 years or would be the time he is 35...so BINGO...he wins...Natural Born Citizenship status as of the time of his 7th birth day...
No, your son would not meet the criteria of a natural born citizen of the U.S. The reason is explained by the following site:

Taylor Swift is one of those extremely rare celebs who do things for their fans. I can’t understand how she can be friends with that human dumpster Lena Dunham, though.
I think my grandma might understand that friendship. Grams has been friends with a woman who is ghetto trailer trash lesbian for her entire life. The two of them met when they were in their 20s, and Grams always says that she is friends with her as a reminder of how horrible life would be without God and Gramps. She is friends with the woman out of a desire to help her, to save her, not because she enjoys being around her.
So it might be something like that.

I know a lot of people here are fans of Jindal, but he has gutted this state to the bare bones to cover a deficit made by his administration. Mental health and higher education toOk gigantic hits. He has spent more time out of the state than in, trying to run for an office he doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hades of winning.

I find things like this fascinating. History undisturbed for so many years.

Was the culprit one of those poor destitute Syrian refugees?

All six people who know about Vice news were in a tizzy over it.
