'Very rude' parolee held in meat shoplifting at Kroger July 25, 2014 at 5:11 p.m.

Very rude? Well, this is not exactly "Man bites dog", now is it ADG?

Hamas is certainly embedded. They are the government and they run hospitals, schools, social services, etc.

I hate to give all the answers away for free, but if they were to develop a much more robust economy, they would have skin in the game and would shape up.

Those wanting to destroy them are themselves adopting the 1,000+ year old philosophy that they share. Good luck with that.

Sowell says: "Counterproductive and dangerous cultures can be spread to America the same way." Hum. For instance?

Sounds like code for something.

They are all the Children of Abraham.

And religious fanaticism of all sorts is tearing the world apart. Shoot, we have so called "Christians" here who WANT this to lead to the end of the World. Go on a long road trip and they will tell you all about it on the radio. After you have finished gagging over Limbaugh and Hannity, and before you just give up and listen to the Latino station.

Pack, yes the uninsured are overrunning emergency rooms. And yes, they die at much higher rates, though of course there could be lots of reasons for that.

When I had foundation work done years ago in Houston, I was fond of saying that there was a higher percentage of Mexican national on my lot than you would find on the average street corner in Mexico City. And boy were they lazy -- crawling under the foundation digging tunnels with hand tools all day long for probably much less than minimum wage.

In fact, at that time almost every construction-related job that did not require a license seemed to filled by Mexican-Americans, many of them illegals.

I agree we need to control the border, but "control" does not mean the Berlin Wall or the Great Wall of China (neither of which ultimately worked). No border is absolutely impenetrable.

Well. Rick Perry declined expanded Medicaid and of course set up no state exchange, so that didnt help South Texans and other poor Texans. Also a good number of the parents down there are probably undicumented, so even where the children are
citizens they have problems getting aid. And needless to say, there are not lot of available jobs down there that come with health insurance.

How can the briiant Sowell say that we have no way of knowing what illnesses the children may have? We can, and do, examine them, and we could of course administer necessary vaccinations if we wanted to.

Israeli fire hits U.N. facility in Gaza, killing 15 July 24, 2014 at 5:35 p.m.

Watching Teddy Cruz argue that the FAA order not fly to BenGurion Airport was motivated by "politics" and the State Department to send some message to Israel. If so, how is that a problem? Seems like that is their job.

Looks like Israel has Cruz bought and paid for.

Current situation completely aside, just thinking, how exactly is Israel our "ally"? What have they ever done for us?

Needless there are too many issues that are far too complex for this forum. But it is disturbing that the moderates who dont approve of extremist or terrorist practices dont stop themselves.

I mean, if a group of radical pobuckers set up artillery at the Mexican border and started shelling Nuevo Laredo we would not just say they we do not approve, would we?
