Rice and Romney, The New American Treat

I like Condoleezza Rice, and someday might make a good president.

No reason she should not be a Vice President.

Jesus was a Muslim?

This stuff is incomprehensible, and imagine going into debt for an education at Iowa’s Luther College.

‘Jesus Was a Muslim’: Religion Professor Makes Unbelievable Argument
Jesus Christ is pretty unquestionably the central figure of Christianity. His name is where the religion comes from, after all, and the story of Christ allowing himself to be killed by the local Roman government as penance for the sins of humanity is integral to the entire ethical system underlying Christian thought.

However, Robert F. Shedinger, a professor at Iowa’s Luther College, has a different argument. He thinks Jesus was actually…a Muslim. Yes, really. In fact, he wrote a book explaining all about it:

Got that? According to Shedinger, Islam is a “social justice movement,” not a religion, and since Christ supposedly supported “social justice,” that makes him a Muslim. To quote him, “I came to the conclusion that [Islam] was a social justice movement and I think that’s who Jesus was in the first century so I conclude Jesus is more like a Muslim.”

Tattoos Indicate Illegal affiliations?

I am not a big fan of illegal immigration, or tattoos. As far as the immigration thing, it is a matter of law. The tattoo issue is just I simply don't understand why anyone would get them.

Anyway, here we have a guy who is trying to do the right thing to be legal and gets screwed. Tattoos may represent gang relationship, or not. When all is said and done, this guy seems to be on the up and up. When the State Department messes around with this guy, that is not a good message to others who may want to do the right thing.

Tattoo Checks Trip Up Visas

Body Art Associated With Gang Symbols Derails Some Immigrants' Green Cards.

In December, Hector Villalobos traveled from Colorado to his native Mexico for an interview, part of his application for U.S. permanent residency. Mr. Villalobos expected to be gone a couple of months to complete the process.

Seven months later, U.S. consular officers haven't allowed the 37-year-old handyman to return home to his wife and three children. The problem: tattoos—some associated with violent Mexican gangs—on Mr. Villalobos's body.

"He likes tattoos, just like many Americans like tattoos" said Veronica, his American wife of six years, who says her husband isn't affiliated with any criminal organization. Mr. Villalobos says he got his tattoos—some in Mexico, some in the U.S.—because he thought they were cool.

n recent years, immigration attorneys say, concern about foreign gangs entering the U.S. has prompted Washington to delay or deny green cards, or legal permanent residency, to some applicants with tattoos.

The tattoo checks have ensnared scores of immigrants—mostly from Latin America—even though they have no criminal conviction. The denials are based on a section of immigration law that justifies "inadmissibility" on national-security grounds, including possible affiliation with criminal organizations.

Texan gunboats patrol Rio Grande

The failure of the federal government to uphold its responsibility to protect American citizens from the violence in Mexico, spreading over the boarder has prompted states to fill the void.

Till now, most notably, the Great State of Arizona. Well it should not come as any surprise that the Lone State State, Texas is not to be out done.

Texas rolls out gunboats to combat violence spilling over river border with Mexico

Law enforcement officers working along the U.S.-Mexico border are stepping up efforts to respond to what is in effect a war going on south of the border, where drug cartel violence has spun out of control.

In Texas, where the two countries are separated only by the Rio Grande River, stopping the violence from spilling into the United States means taking to the water -- with 34-foot-long gunboats that pack some serious firepower.

The stakes are high. Since 2007, roughly 56,000 people in Mexico have been killed in the escalating drug cartel violence. The U.S. government and local police agencies are working around the clock, 365 days a year to try and stop the flow of drugs, weapons and illegal immigrants into America from our southern neighbor.


the Texas Department of Public Safety has rolled out the big guns: Four new “shallow water interceptors” are now patrolling the river, and two others will be commissioned soon.


These gunboats are outfitted with bullet-proof panels, fully automatic machine guns and 900-horsepower engines. Their ability to cruise through the water at fast speeds is designed to not only serve as an intimidating force on the water, but also to fight back.
