Obama bans U.S. companies from competition
WND ^ | Aug. 14, 2013 | Steve Peacock

Project is to assess south-of-the-border social conditions

The Obama administration intends to keep contractors on stand-by to help officials evaluate conditions on the Mexican side of the U.S. border, but U.S. companies are not allowed to apply for the work.

Tracking remittances – funds sent over a distance – from the U.S. to Mexico is one of several possible research and consulting services that Obama through the U.S. Agency for International Development may solicit.

Such a task will not support, for example, tax- or drug-enforcement operations. Instead, it would help determine the extent to which the funds subsequently are “invested into social or community development projects” in Mexico, according to a Request for Quotations that WND discovered via routine database research.

I’m beginning to think Obama wakes (literally) and says, how can I screw America more.

And how much more glee can I get from the idiots who still cheer me on.

That must be one double doozy head high for The Won.

Whadda ya mean WTF?

Not sure I understand your question.

Just expressing how it’s gone overboard as to the ways this man has over stepped his limits as the executive branch and now it seems to just be a game to see how far he can go. Which apparently is infinity, which give “The Won” a head full of ego maniacal high.

Cupcake really is an easy study isn’t he?

Moochell is just a leftist-issued wookie to enable Cupcake to appear normal.

Barack-Barry is the ‘man’ an evil segment of American society has been waiting for. A true pervert who moved in at the right time. America has been softened up for a leftist takeover since 1911. It’s difficult to understand the thinking of these evildoers who deliberately trash America knowing full well they won’t be around to see this nation’s complete demise.

Our society is not polite any longer. Right thinkers are not in control of our government and I honestly believe that the very few one would consider Conservatives are bewildered children. They may fear that if they do roar about what’s happening they might end up pumped full of formaldehyde.

Our nation has become a scary, evil, dark place.
