alprova said...That merely makes the poorest and the dumbest Hispanic smarter than all of Congress and you pricks, who couldn't care less about a fellow human being.
Make no mistake about it I don't give a rat's arse about them and would prefer all those resources be spent on those homeless, ill and in dire need Americans. It is pricks like you that think your bleeding heart sympathy toward illegals will get you to heaven. I doubt I will be judged more harshly than those breaking the law.
You are still incorrect in suggesting every illegal has rights to hearings etc. Only those seeking asylum for a number of reasons.
Do you think that w/o the POTUS the military and some staffers are in the situation room trying to figure out how to deal with those that behead people? Do we have some more innocent souls in GITMO we can swap for the American journalist ISIS says they will behead?
Can someone, anyone summarize what the U.S. foreign policy is?
Save a lot of money. Tell Holder to go on back to D.C. put the cop in jail and forget the investigation. People across the country and in this forum have already tried and convicted him and adding facts would only confuse the masses or the national mob.
We all know any witness giving an account favoring the cop is a liar and those favorable to Brown are credible, upstanding, tax paying salt of the earth citizens.
So, quit wasting time and money just mete out the punishment.
alprova said....There's nothing special about it. We have a ruled of law in this nation when it comes to dealing with illegal immigrants and that rule was passed by a Republican President along with a Republican dominated House and Senate, which states that all illegals who cross that border into the United States will be captured, arrested, processed, given a deportation hearing date, and then released under their own recognizance.
That is not totally accurate and a little misleading. The law does not apply to all illegals but only those seeking asylum for one or more of the reasons noted in the law. Mexicans can be returned with nothing other than being caught. Those from other countries that know what to say can get in the described system with over 70% not showing up for their hearing. That may improve once they learn the U.S. government will not send them back but continue providing their clothing, food, shelter, healthcare and education needs.
Check out the cheat sheet of what to say as to why they are here. Some actually gave the agents the sheet with a list of reasons to give when questioned about why there were trying to enter the U.S.
Obama to staff...Who is ISIS, where have they been, where will they go? I am the leader I need to know. We are the greatest and the world is tranquil. They won't attack us here and that is what I will tell the people as soon as I finish this round of golf.
No one should be surprised. Little Johnny is playing with people bigger, faster and tougher than he is, he will be lucky if the injury he will have is not crippling.
A good example of if you don't know where you are and don't know where you are going any road will get you there.
Can I have a vow please?

Physiological Effects of Marijuana
The active ingredient in marijuana is THC. That's short for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol.
THC is rapidly absorbed after smoking pot. Within minutes, THC and the other substances in marijuana smoke cause short-term medical effects.
Signs of using marijuana include:
•Rapid heart rate
•Increased blood pressure
•Increased rate of breathing
•Increased appetite, or "the munchies"
•Slowed reaction time
These effects are reduced after three or four hours. However, marijuana hangs around in your system for as long as a month after smoking. The lingering effects mean you're impaired for several days to weeks after the high wears off.
Psychological Effects of Marijuana
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the main effects of marijuana on mood vary and may include euphoria, calmness, anxiety, or paranoia. Getting high or "stoned" is the reason most pot smokers use marijuana.
Other short-term psychological effects of pot include:
•Distorted sense of time
•Magical or "random" thinking
•Short-term memory loss
•Anxiety and depression
These psychological signs of using pot also generally ease after a few hours. But residual effects can last for days.
Risks of Marijuana Use
The risks of smoking marijuana go up with heavy use. Although the link has never been proven, many experts believe heavy pot smokers are at increased risk for lung cancer.
Heavy marijuana use lowers men's testosterone levels and sperm count and quality. Pot could decrease libido and fertility in some heavy-smoking men.
Contrary to what many pot smokers may tell you, marijuana is addictive, at least psychologically. Even among occasional users, one in 12 can feel withdrawal symptoms if they can't get high when they want to. Among heavy pot smokers, the rates of dependence are higher.
Many experts also believe that marijuana is physically addictive. Symptoms of withdrawal from pot might include:
Is pot a "gateway" drug? In other words, does smoking marijuana make someone more likely to try cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, and other "hard" drugs? The jury is still out on this one. It's true that pot smokers are more likely to use other drugs after trying marijuana. What's not clear is whether smoking pot causes further drug use or if people who start smoking pot are just more likely to try drugs in general.
If you're wondering how long marijuana stays in your system after smoking, it depends on how often you smoke. Light users -- those who smoke pot once in a while -- will have a negative drug screen after a marijuana-free week. Heavy users -- sometimes called "stoners" -- may continue testing positive for a month after last smoking pot.
From WEB MD....probably a better source than either of us alprova.
Marijuana, which comes from the hemp plant Cannabis sativa, is the most frequently used illegal drug in the U.S. About 4% of American adults smoke pot at least once a year. Roughly 1% of adults abuse pot, and one in 300 have a pot addiction.
Most people smoke the plant's dried leaves, flowers, stems, and seeds. But marijuana also can be mixed into food or brewed as a tea. Marijuana goes by many street names, including pot, weed, and herb. Hash, a concentrated form of the drug, is short for hashish.
The rates of marijuana smoking in adults have remained stable since the 1990s. However, the rates of addiction to pot have risen significantly over that same period. And, according to recent government studies, as many as 30% of today's teenagers are smoking marijuana.
Occasional marijuana use is rarely seriously harmful, but smoking pot has important medical effects.
GaussianInteger said... That's BS, and you know it. There is no evidence to support that paragraph that you wasted your time typing. Show me the story where a man smoked a joint and went home and beat his wife to death (happens daily with alcohol).
It doesn't happen daily with alcohol. I am not talking about someone smoking a joint or having a drink or two having noticeable or significant mood changes.
Hardly anything in moderation yields bad results. I know what I typed is not BS because I have been in crowds where drinking and smoking in excess occurred. I have seen the bolder and less inhibited behavior resulting from smoking several joints. I did see some of both sexes getting confrontational and have heard about others getting very aggressive or assertive when excessively high on pot. I did enjoy being around and joining some high and less inhibited nude females in the hot tub. I did not smoke or drink and at one party was one of only two people in a group of over 50 that abstained. The others ran the full gambit of just relaxed to very high. The odor left no doubt what was going on and if the police had shown up they would have had no problem knowing.
I do think it should be legal, regulated and taxed. I haven't smoked it and don't plan to but I don't care if others do as long as they don't muck with me, if they do I can break them of that habit.
