    Maybe you missed the point - the comment was nonsense, and so I proposed an equally stupid and baseless assertion.

    Re: Protesters block buses carrying undocumented immigrants in California

    Protestors block a lot of buses worldwide. I once sat in front of a bus filled with IMF delegates along with a lot of other people. When the bus tried to run us over, we threw cobble stones and cracked the windows. Does this civil unrest also validate my feelings of antipathy to the IMF as much as it gives validity to the anti-immigrant protest?

    According to Global Security.org

    "The Mariel Boatlift officially began April 15, 1980 and ended October 31, 1980, with the arrival of over 125,000 Cubans to Southern Florida from Port of Mariel, Cuba."

    http://www.globalsecurity.org/milita...l-boatlift.htm

    The make up of these people was of labor wage earning families, and like, NOT predominantly children. According to reports to date some 51,000 children as young as you can imagine (in diapers) have crossed the border and turned themselves in. Why?

    IMHO, the projection of this administration to say that they would run blocker, and pave the way for this by their inept, inaction toward enforcing our border enforcement is a siren song for this to happen, if not a planned crisis. Not in the sense that this hyperbolic nonsense of "bringing down America" that so often hits the partisan airwaves, but rather a governing by distraction, and deflection....

    Don't want coverage on Fast and Furious? in pops a crisis
    Don't want coverage on Benghazi? in pops a crisis
    Don't want coverage on Lois Lerner and the IRS? in pops a crisis
    Don't want coverage on the VA? in pops a crisis

    How much more of this foolish game will we stand for this childish game of distraction? It is a shame and insults the collective intelligence of every American citizen....

    i grew up watching sleight of hand, with the giants of magic

    David Copperfield & Doug Henning and so on

    They got nothing on this administration

    watch over "here".....we have to take your eyes off this story over "here"

    you gotta admit....they are really really good at it.....

    +1. It is hard for me to see how people can support a white house that will not take responsibility for its actions.

    That's nothing. I once blocked a rickshaw single handedly, using nothing but my flatulence.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Which leads many to speculate that there is more to the constant barrage of crisis' rather than just bad luck, and partisan nitpicking.

    Bingo, It has always been predominately immigrants working in slaughter houses.
