Immigrants trickling back to Ala despite crackdown
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Ana Jimenez and her husband were so terrified of being sent back to their native Mexico when Alabama’s tough crackdown on illegal immigrants took effect that they fled more than 2,000 miles to Los Angeles, cramming into a two-bedroom apartment with more than 20 other relatives.

Have you ever had roaches get into your house? It’s the same thing; these roaches will keep on coming back. What America needs is a POTUS that knows how to call in The Orkin Man!
20 people killed in Iraqi police academy blast
BAGHDAD (AP) – A suicide bomber detonated his car Sunday as a group of police recruits left their academy in Baghdad, killing 20 in the latest strike on security officials that angry residents blamed on political feuding that is roiling Iraq. SOURCE
Someone remind me once more how we did so much good in Iraq? How we won those *hearts and minds* and how the deaths of nearly 5,000 American troops and the expenditure of untold BILLIONS of OUR dollars was such a good thing.
This time, try to convince me.
Intensity question for Romney stirs doubt for fall
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – If Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination for president, he’ll face the urgent task of inspiring the party’s conservative core and rallying them to beat President Barack Obama. SOURCE
Romney will not inspire Conservatives. IF Romney is the nominee Conservatives will have no choice but to hold their noses and vote for Romney. Then we’ll have to look at ourselves in the mirror and HOPE we did the right thing for America.
GOP sees chance to attack Obama on rising gas prices
WASHINGTON — Rising gasoline prices, trumpeted in foot-tall numbers on street corners across the country, are causing concern among advisers to President Obama that a budding sense of economic optimism could be undermined just as he heads into the general election. SOURCE
If GAS prices are all the GOP can find to attack Obama with, the GOP needs to be totally revamped, or done away with and replaced with a REAL Conservative party. Actually, that’s not a bad idea regardless.
Justices Sit on Highest Court, but Still Live Without Top Security
When Justice Stephen G. Breyer was robbed in his Caribbean vacation home 10 days ago, the crime was unremarkable except for one fact: a machete-wielding intruder was able to walk right into the residence of one of the highest members of the United States government. SOURCE
If Breyer were not such a hard core, anti-gun libber, this might be a teaching moment. It might teach Breyer why so many Americans carry a gun for protection. Since no one was killed in this incident, a libber will look at it and see NO REASON to have a gun.
Have I ever mentioned that I believe libbers to be MORONS?
