Guess the Teamsters union didn’t cough up as much protection money for BO’s campaign as the UAW did.

Can the loon actually make a decision?:

Can the loon actually open his mouth without lying?

Can the loon do anything at all?

Answers forthcoming during the next few failed months of his sorry “administration”.

Not really what you’d call a flip flop. It’s just that he wanted the pork and he wanted it now. Having done that, now he can work on reassuring the illegal alien vote.

He is a busy man attempting to ... CHANGE AMERICA FOREVER.

This is a major security issue to me, especially with what is going on south of the border.

That “Buy American” provision in the “porkulus” spending authorizatiobn is going to be a recurring problem, isn’t it?

Mexicans and Canadians should be raising Cain over this provision, as it is discriminatory and will be applied with apparent capricious intent. And that is no way to keep your neighbors placated.

See, this is where the EPA crowd and all those who are clamping down on business might find it a little hard to justify their positions. That is, of course, if they were asked to justify their positions - I’m guessing they won’t.

I'm SURE those trucks are ONLY transporting “goods” into our country. Yep, yep, yep....move along, nothing to see here.

Here's a scary thought. Who is inspecting these vehicles and could even one of them be paid off by the Mexican drug cartel mafia to turn their head when they come across anything of “interest”? There is NOTHING good about this. Nothing.

Well that did not take long. It should be obvious we are being sold down the river by both parties. They are the “good cops” “bad cops” for the New World Order global totalitarian government that will soon replace the good ole USA.

I think I read somewhere this morning where the Omnibus bill included a ban on federal spending for stem cell research.

Nobama made a big deal about using federal money for stem cells then signed the omnibus bill with a ban on it without reading the bill.

I totally agree.

It is a continuing step in the creation of the CORRIDOR to be created under the ageeement (talks per their report) ...

Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP):
The SPP is a White House-led initiative among the United States and the two nations it borders – Canada and Mexico – to increase security and to enhance prosperity among the three countries through greater cooperation. The SPP is based on the principle that our prosperity is dependent on our security and recognizes that our three great nations share a belief in freedom, economic opportunity, and strong democratic institutions. The SPP outlines a comprehensive agenda for cooperation among our three countries while respecting the sovereignty and unique cultural heritage of each nation. The SPP provides a vehicle by which the United States, Canada, and Mexico can identify and resolve unnecessary obstacles to trade and it provides a means to improve our response to emergencies and increase security, thus benefiting and protecting Americans.

The SPP is meant to:
Coordinate our security efforts to better protect U.S. citizens from terrorist threats and transnational crime and promote the safe and efficient movement of legitimate people and goods;
Expand economic opportunity for all our people by making our businesses more competitive in the global marketplace, cutting red tape, and providing consumers with safe, less expensive, and innovative products; and
Enhance our common efforts to combat infectious diseases, develop responses to man-made or natural disasters to enhance our citizens’ quality of life, protect our people and our environment, and improve consumer safety.
The SPP benefits the American people in many ways, and much progress has already been made. For example (see www.spp.gov for more information):

To save lives, prevent injuries, and make consumer goods safer, the United States, Canada and Mexico signed separate agreements for advance notifications when consumer goods violate one country’s safety standards or pose a danger to consumers.
To strengthen border security, Mexican and U.S. agencies are exchanging information and establishing protocols to detect fraud and smuggling, and address border violence.
To speed up response times when managing infectious disease outbreaks, the United States and Canada signed an agreement to enable simultaneous exchange of information between virtual national laboratory networks.
To speed cargo shipping, the three countries are developing uniform in-advance electronic exchange of cargo manifest data for maritime, railroad and motor carriers.
To develop a coordinated strategy aimed at combating counterfeiting and piracy, a task force of senior officials from the three North American countries has been established
To reduce the cost of trade, the United States and Canada decreased transit times at the Detroit/Windsor gateway, our largest border crossing point, by 50 percent.
To reduce market distortions, facilitate trade, and promote overall competitiveness, the North American Steel Trade Committee developed a new strategy that focuses on improving innovation and market development.

"It should be obvious we are being sold down the river by both parties."

Nothing is obvious to people that place blind faith in others, then refuse to hold those others accountable when the betrayal is uncovered.

The fundamental problem that plagues our nation is not the Democratic Party or the Republican Party, but their party loyalists that follow blindly, of which both registered Democrats and Republicans are responsible. It is they that provide the vehicle upon which the betrayers ride. In the ultimate ruse, the party loyalists do not even hold themselves responsible for the part they played in elevating the betrayers.

It seems to me that the vast majority of citizens are totally oblivious. They are willing to accept the garbage on TV as the truth. I do not hold out any hope they will awaken in time to avert disaster.

There’s probably something already in place for the teamsters to collect dues from those Mexican truck drivers who drive across our border on to US roadways.

The fundamental problem that plagues our nation is not the Democratic Party or the Republican Party, but their party loyalists that follow blindly, of which both registered Democrats and Republicans are responsible. It is they that provide the vehicle upon which the betrayers ride.

Back in the early 90's attending Libertarian Party meetings I saw the same thing there: high-and-tight uptights and amoral Birkenstockers vying for influence while ignoring the platform. I asked Harry Browne about this (he was a very accessible and nice fellow) and he said that it wasn't much different from those in the 1770's, except this lot still had much to learn from that group.

Then he let out a great sigh, bucked up and went on schmoozing.

The Platform is the mission and that mission is about serving America - if you can't check your ego at the door or put profit above patriotism you shouldn't be involved in politics.

Correction: Patriotism above profit. LOL. Is it Spoonerism or Freudian slip? I say it’s being subjected to over a million commercials via media taking up valuable brain cells.
