11. WHO WANTS TO IMPORT 800,OOO MORE FOREIGN WORKERS?

"After meeting with a "bevy" of big-business groups, President Barack Obama is reportedly considering granting them up to 800,000 additional guest-worker visas via executive actions."

"Numerous companies – like Microsoft and Cisco – have massively laid off American workers while pushing the Obama administration for more guest-worker visas at a time when scholars and studies from organizations on the left, right, and center have debunked the notion that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers." http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Gov...

There must be a shortage of high tech workers who will always vote left regardless of how unqualified the candidate is, like Mr. Obama and plugs Biden.

800,000 decided upon as POTUS yelled FOUR twice on the golf course.

#1 "Who" was the father is not the question it is "where" was the father when his son ran the streets strong arming business owners and shattering eye sockets of police officers. #5 Israel PM trying to capitalize on beheading linking Hamas to similar extremism. Israel gets rockets fired into civilian areas and Hamas uses Palestinian civilians as shields for retaliation on rocket launch sites. Indeed an equally vicious foe. Odrama dropped the ball exiting from Iraq and a woeful strategy in the Middle East. Voters are ignorantly resilient though and will still support what can help them get their free stuff. Or for those who actually have Union jobs and are citizens, count on their vote too. Non citizens with I.D allowed to vote including the upcoming amnesty to all future Obamaphiles paints a bleak picture for the future of our country. Last congress with Dems plus a Prez only produced "first we must pass the bill to see what is in it" The Holy Grail of the Socialist Party which the extreme left pretends not to be. Which is exactly why the Dems will relinquish the Congress this November. Checks and balances by the voting people! God bless America!
