I'm not endorsing the idea, just explaining how I read it. It seemed pretty clear from your comment about requiring enplanements that you didn't understand what he was saying.

Sadly, facts like these don't seem to mean anything to the Hard Core Left-Wing Dimmokrat Obama supporters. They just get in the way of the Blind Agenda and, oh hell, must just be Republican BS anyway. And that Fox News, you can't believe ANYTHING they say! Now, CNN, NBC, PBS and anonymous bloggers, now THEM you can believe!

and recall Obama's removal of the work requirement:
the Obama Administration issued a bureaucratic edict declaring that state welfare bureaucracies would no longer need to comply with the work participation standards established in the 1996 welfare reform law.

This is the video of the guys on the ground. But who you gonna believe, (constant liar) Obama, or the "lying eyes" of the heroic men risking their lives? As to "no stand down" from the WH, the commander in chief gives orders to go, and as I quoted earlier, the general said they were anxiously waiting. It's like a fire chief getting an alarm on a fire, but never sending out the trucks. Then…

The big thing being done in this reform is allowing parents of legal children to gain recognition. That means all that mommy has to do is cross the border and pop out a baby and poof mommy will be legal. Then dad can come along too. We need to stop the idea that just being born here makes you a legal citizen. At least ONE of your parenets should be a citizen by going through the process that millions…

Victor Jarvis was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma


On the evening of December 25th, two-year-old Victor Jarvis's Nana noticed a large mass protruding from his upper abdomen. After seeking the advice of many, I was tempted to wait until morning to contact his pediatrician. But something just didn't sit will with me so I took him to the ER. 

After a very long wait, the doctor came in to examine him and within seconds knew it was his liver. He ordered a CT scan, which confirmed there was a large mass in Victor's liver. Children's Hospital was contacted and they sent an ambulance to pick us up.

On Monday, December 30th, surgeons took V to surgery to collect samples of the tumor. The following day, on the 31st, Victor Alan was officially diagnosed with stage 3 hepatoblastoma. 

Victor began his first round of chemotherapy on Thursday, January 2nd. Each round of chemo will take 3 weeks. After two rounds of chemo (and a week of recovery in between), Victor will be rescanned to see how well the tumor has responded to chemo. If it has shrunk enough, surgeons will attempt to remove the tumor. If it hasn't shrunk enough and/or the surgeons still find it too dangerous to attempt to remove, Victor will be placed on the transplant list.

The boy's mother, Sera Jarvis, teaches fourth grade at Quincy's Baldwin Intermediate School. Baldwin students and Sera's colleagues raised more than $2,200 for the boy's medical expenses by holding pajama day at school on Friday. 

The school is planning to hold other fundraisers in the future.
