    Default 14 dead in Ford F-250 Accident

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/...144056003.html

    A pickup truck carrying 23 people veered off a Texas highway and crashed late Sunday, killing 14 and injuring 9 others.

    The Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup was was traveling north on U.S. Highway 59 when it crashed into two large trees near Goliad, Texas, about 100 miles southeast of San Antonio, Texas Highway Patrol trooper Gerald Bryant told KTRK-TV.

    Some of the victims were airlifted to hospitals in San Antonio and Corpus Christi. The cause of the crash remains under investigation, police said.

    "In my 38 years as an officer, this is one of the worst fatalities I have been to," Bryant said. "I have never seen where we had that many in a vehicle."

    The victims were crammed in the cab and bed of the pickup truck.

    "Based on the mode of travel, the way that the people were in the vehicle, it's a high probability there were illegal immigrants traveling northbound on 59," Texas Dept. of Safety Lt. Glen Garrett told KIII-TV.

    According to CNN, U.S. border patrol and "immigration and customs enforcement agents were called to the scene." Goliad County is about 150 miles northeast of the Mexican border.

    Looks like it may be time to outlaw Ford F250's

    23 people in a pickup, huh? Does "Illegal Border Crossing" ring a bell here?

    I am sorry it happened, but what pisses me off is that we (the taxpayers) will pay for the airlift, medical, etc
    It is what it is

    If our idiotic politicians would stop supporting and promoting illegal immigration, and our federal government would rather enforce existing immigration laws in this country, then these sorts of tragedies would not happen.
    It is terrible what happened to those people in that truck. Mexicans need stop running from their country to ours, and instead work towards building up their own country. They need far less incentive to all pile in a truck to come to the US. Stop encouraging Mexicans to abandon Mexico. End the illegal free-for-all.

    Default It's The Tea Party's Fault!

    This just in:

    Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos are now speculating that the man driving the truck was a Tea Party member.

    Not really but would you be surprised if they did?

    Default Obama Teams Up With Mexican Government to Push Food Stamps

    This doesn't help,


    A stunning report from the Daily Caller reveals that the Obama administration has signed a deal with the Mexican government to promote the use of food stamps. The U.S. Department of Agriculture program would “promote the use of food stamps among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America,” according to the report.

    The Congressional Budget Office reports that food stamps are up 70% under the Democrat-run government. Food stamp use is already at all-time highs in a jobless recession that has seen 41 straight months of unemployment over 8%. Nearly one in five households use the program, while red ink for government spending already runs over $42,000 for each household per year.

    The initiative recalls the USDA being recently caught by the Daily Caller running food stamp promotions on Spanish language soap operas. The USDA was later compelled to retract the ads.

    But the strange American welfare program placement has prompted questions by lawmakers, and most prominently, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, who has launched an investigation into the USDA’s cross-border food stamp promotion program, which was launched in 2004. The implications of more lax border and identification enforcement under the Obama administration are raising eyebrows among some GOP lawmakers, who are able to see the dangerous implications of open borders and welfare state economics.

    The food stamp program was initiated in 1969 with the goal of helping the poorest fraction of the country pay their grocery bills. According to Americans for Tax Reform, in its first year less than three million people received monthly food stamp benefits of $6.63. By 1981, more than twenty-two million citizens were on the welfare program receiving $39.49 each month. Under the Obama administration, about 60 million Americans are receiving an average $277 in monthly benefits.

    And the Obama administration wants to see that number go up. The reason is simple: the more voters the president can get dependent on the Democrat Party and government largesse, the more secure his political fortunes and the party’s power base will be.

    The Mexican-American voter demographic has clearly been in the administration’s sites this year. The president would love to boost Mexican-American voter levels up to the ninety-percent-and-above Democrat Party brand loyalty that one routinely witnesses for the black community. Black voter loyalty to the Democrats remain markedly strong, despite black unemployment of 14.4% and black teen unemployment of nearly 40%. Hispanic and Latino unemployment is currently at 11%.

    The Obama administration suing Arizona and gutting most of the state’s tighter immigration laws via the Supreme Court is apparently just the beginning. Clearly, the Democrat Party cannot allow a minority group to even split its votes for the Republican Party, which is a danger due to the Romney campaign’s potential selection of Florida Senator Marco Rubio.

    But the costs for the American public of the Democrat’s electioneering is becoming too much to bear, while the party doesn’t seem to care. The debt obligations for the productive class is already into the several trillions with no end in sight. The economy is scheduled to implode around 2027, due mostly to public debt and interest payments on the debt, according to the CBO. And where will the immigrants of the world hoping for a part of the American Dream go then?
