I think that, traditionally, organized crime considers it bad form to use children as bargaining chips. But I see that our gangsters do not adhere to the high standards of the mafia.

And yet the uneducated, Obama ***-kissing toads in the state run “media” still spew that it was the Republicans that shut down the government. Liars and morons all.

Of course it doesn’t cost anything to keep the website up since its running on govt servers.

I’m surprised they didn’t send a message out via the EAS on 10/1/13, stating that the alert system was going off-line due to those mean ol’ Republicans.

Mac daddy and his head sock puppet harry reid don’t care about children with cancer have added to their list missing children.

The rest of the dumb-o-crat party in the senate just follow along behind their sock puppet master and his head sock puppet like lemmings with no minds of their own.

My guess is that Obama seeks to re-establish the Caliphate and make it the world’s primary super power. We are in his way, so we must be destroyed — primarily by destroying our social and cultural foundations so that we can no longer act upon the world stage in a meaningful way.

Does Obama think anyone is going to forget this temper tantrum when it’s over?

Do the leaders of the Democrat party have the authority to replace the traitor in the WH? What is the procedure for replacing an unfit-to-lead President?

It’s worth remembering that the federal government didn’t implement the original Amber Alert, Governor George W. Bush did in Texas.

Then other states followed. Pretty soon, 50 states had set up their own Amber Alert systems and interfaces together.

Later, when Bush won the Presidency, the program was nationalized.

The above means some things, though.

For one thing, the states can fund the Amber Alert system again if the feds can’t.

For another, states can get things done nationally without the federal government.

That’s how CCW laws went national, after all, one state at a time.

The leaders and contributors to the democrat party could remove/replace or shut down this human vermin with hours.
They haven’t and won’t.
They are in agreement with him. So is his media.

The national level dimrats want a collapse so as to rebuild the country in their image of power and control. Because there won’t be elections that we would recognize after that.

this is actually a sign of weakness, it’s a sign that obama knows that the shutdown is not having much impact so he has to artificially try to ramp up the pain

This reminds me of local news a couple years back.

At the ten PM break, they blurt out “Local community urged to boil water. Details at 11”

I was boiling mad! So some kid might get E-coli or whatever and die, and you ONLY care about keeping people in suspense so you can boost your damn ratings at 11?

Turned out to be not so bad, but I was furious for a week!
All they had to do was (name the community) should boil water details at 11!!!!

How much did Obama spent barrycading the open-air parks?

How much does amber alert system cost?

If the GOPe didn’t have it’s head up it’s collective butts they would trot out kids saved via Amber Alerts and their grateful parents.

Of course, the libs would hire profesional actors and if caught the MSM would spin it as they were informing the public of the programs importance.

He’ll just say “the Republicans made me do it”. And at least 1/2 the people will either agree, won’t know, won’t care.

They’ll see the most powerful man in the world as a victim. that’s what he is counting on. After all, they think they’re winning.

Being a kid is tough under obama. If you don’t get aborted, you’re forced to eat garbage in the indoctrination center, get arrested for pointing your finger, totally ignored if abducted, or denied your medicine if you have cancer.

obama can do anything he wants to do as long as:

There is no real opposition.

and

The media worships and covers for him.

There could be lots of parents begging for an Amber Alert but the media won’t cover it.

I think he wants this shutdown. He knows his time is short. He does not a damn how many or how much pain he inflicts, as long as it is as much as possible.

Don’t be surprised if we experience a terrorist attack performed by the terrorists in charge of the white house.

Can you imagine what would happen if there is another 9/11 and the media blames the republicans? The vast majority of the sheeple would demand the republicans fold.

Yes, and, Dear God, at what cost?

Can you imagine the agony of a parent whose child goes missing during this?

Knowing that these reptiles shut down the Amber Alert system for POLITICAL POINTS?

Chose political propaganda over your child being molested, tortured, possibly killed?

These are, truly, monsters.

I question their capability to love even their own children, because a normal parent could NEVER allow or promote this happening to any child.

Nuts. Was hoping the phone alerts would stop.

First one I got convinced me the program will self destruct from being annoying. At 2:30am some 375 miles away, it’s gonna turn into a “cried wolf too many times” situation fast.
