What is your opinion on this issue Visa controls on Mexico ‘humiliating,' senator says?

Relations will improve ‘when you change prime ministers,' according to senior Mexican official.

A senior Mexican senator and former foreign affairs minister yesterday called Canada's visa controls on Mexico a humiliation and questioned whether Canadian-Mexican relations will improve as long as Stephen Harper is Prime Minister.

In a blunt speech to a Toronto business and academic gathering, Senator Rosario Green Macias detailed the information she was required to provide to the Canadian government to enter Canada – proof of property ownership, her last six bank statements, a letter from the Mexican senate stating she is a senator and personal information about other members of her family.

“That has to stop,” said Ms. Green, who is president of the external relations commission of Mexico's senate, an academic, a former secretary-general of Mexico's Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and a one-time senior United Nations official as well as diplomat and cabinet minister.

She wore a silk scarf with a Mountie emblem, a gift from her daughter who attended private school in Quebec's Eastern Townships.

She repeatedly told her audience that the Mexican-Canada relationship is troubled. Twice she used the word “humiliating” to describe Canada's visa controls, linking them to the wall – which she also called a humiliation – that the United States is building along the U.S.-Mexican border to keep out illegal migrant Mexicans.

Later, talking to journalists, she said the relationship will improve “when you change prime ministers,” then realized what she'd said and asked not to be quoted.

The two journalists who heard her did not give her that assurance and Ms. Green did not press her request.

Canada imposed visa requirements on Mexicans in July after a huge upsurge in the number of Mexicans arriving in Canada and claiming refugee status.

Ottawa said most of the claims were bogus and had been orchestrated by unscrupulous Mexican firms giving advice on how to take advantage of Canada's asylum system.

They were blocking the Canadian refugee assessment process, said Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.

Ms. Green, who spoke at the launch of a joint forum by Mexican and Canadian non-government policy institutes to improve relations between the two countries, said the Canadian government first should have proposed a study with the Mexican government to resolve the problem before suddenly imposing visas.

Mexico, she said, was working on curbing illegal migrants.

She criticized the media's portrait of Mexico as nothing more than a society of illegal migration, drugs and violence, and she said her fellow citizens found it amazing that Mexican asylum seekers in Canada were claiming their government couldn't protect them from the drug wars and corrupt and abusive security forces.

Ms. Green also said the North American free-trade agreement should be re-launched with a new attitude that recognized Mexico as an equal partner with Canada and the U.S. and not as an irritant.

On Monday, Bill Graham, Canada's former foreign affairs minister, will speak in Mexico City on the bilateral relationship. The forum is sponsored by the Canadian Foundation for the Americas (FOCAL) and the Consejo Mexicano de Asuntos Internacionales (COMEXI).…What is your opinion on this issue Visa controls on Mexico ‘humiliating,%26039; senator says?
I worked 30 years on the Mexico-US border and everything Ms. Green said is a bunch of political rhetoric. Mexico has got so used to playing the victim card that they now feel entitled to infringe upon and even dictate how other governments should perceive illegal Mexican immigrants.

Mexico has been %26quot;working%26quot; to curve their illegal immigrant problem for the last 50 years and it has only gotten worse. Could it be the fact that illegals and resident aliens in the US alone send approximately 7 BILLION dollars per year to Mexico to help support their families there.

The amount of monies sent to Mexico on a yearly basis by illegals as well as legal residents in the US surpasses the amount Mexico makes from their tourism and even their oil exports.

If I was the President of Mexico I would also sit on my hands and claim victim status for my country hoping that the liberals of the world will go to bat for my poor unfortunate country men and allow them to keep suckling from the American tit.What is your opinion on this issue Visa controls on Mexico ‘humiliating,%26039; senator says?
(( Roy you want to answer this one? Bob you answer it..))..Well, if she was not visiting Canada in official capacity of Mexican government`s representative she had to go through all those requirements, as any other visitor does, if she was representing Mexican government, then she should not have to go through all those requirements. And to have to comply with them would be kind of humiliating to Mexican -or any other- government. As for her statement that %26quot;Mexico is working on curbing illegal immigration%26quot;-it is not convincing, because there are no patrols on Mexican side of the border at all, trying to stop their illegals from crossing over into U.S.-as there are on U.S. side.

Abbusive lazy boyfriend?

so im 20 my bf is 30, we have a 3yr old, a 1 yr old and im due to have number 3 in a few weeks, i got postnatal depression with both kids and likely to get it again, neither of us work, i applyed for jobs before number 3 stopped me wrking but to no avail, anyway, my daily routine is to get up around 5-8 (depending on kids) ill make em breakfast, change them and give them their basic needs like potty training ect, and by 10-11am i begin 2 get pissed off that my bf is still asleep on the sofa whilst im trying to have a wash, clean my kitchen and look after the children. i make them lunch then play with them and do the daily nappies occasionlly he'l change a nappy after getting up between 10-12. then i either have to go get shopping or if not i usually take the kids out out of bordem, come home start cooking dinner, feed them and have them ready for bed between 7 for yungest and 8 for the eldest. Although he gets up at 12ish and changes a few nappies maybe does the washing up or takes out the bin, i get anoyed that no matter how tired i am from pregnancy he wont let me rest or he just falls akip on the sofa

i usually get a bit pis*ed off and i can start arguements which r usually, so u think its ok to leave me coping with a screaming child and potty train another and do housewrk at the sametime.

he calls me a fat lazy slob, i was a size 8 (UK) and in the 8th mnth of prgnancy im a size12, he tells me that i should go and eat cake and chocolate which is a rare treat in my home and its come to a point were i feel i cant tell him ive bought it in case he calls me fat, he breaks or hides my things when we argue which i sometimes do retaliate and do the same thing, i.e ill put his fags somewhere n not tell him

hes hit me a few times and police have been called other times when we've faught ive hit him back, i cant deal with it, but because of joint council tenancy i have no right to remove him from family home, i have no-were to go, no money ect. nor does he, i really dont know what to do, he's not changed other than violence since i met him but we didnt have children then, i was 16 wen we met and he calls me a slut for having 3 kids but they are all his, ive only ever had 3 sexual partners him being the 3rd!Abbusive lazy boyfriend?
Police aren't just for show you know. they not only catch people doing crime, but they also help out socially. consult in them. and if your boyfriend is that mean, come on, is he really your boyfriend, i'm 13, and i don't know why i'm helping you because i don't have as much experience as you, but from what i see, your boyfriends a ****** sorry. dump him. divorce him. find someone who actually cares.

but consult the police first. :)Abbusive lazy boyfriend?
Get help and get out of this relationshipAbbusive lazy boyfriend?
I didn't read you whole book. I can tell you how horrible this person is but I have a doubt you will listen to me. you are the one with him and you have realized this on your own but won't do anything about it for some reason.

obviously you get something out of being with this guy. there is something about him that are are still attracted to otherwise you would have gotten rid of him before you had 3 kids with him.

I find it sad when I hear about women like you who have no backbone and refuse to stand up for themselves. There are probably several men in your life that are genuine gentlemen but you would never give them a chance because their lack of abuse for you comes off as being week.

Has the mandate on base housing at Kadena AB (Japan) been lifted yet?

We're moving there in 2 months and I'm just now reading about this mandate they began enforcing last year. Does anyone know if they've lifted it yet? I've had about as much of base housing as I can stand.

Officials mandate base housing for military families at Okinawa

7/7/2009 - KADENA AIR BASE, Japan (AFNS) -- U.S. military leaders on Okinawa approved a policy to require all incoming military families to reside on base beginning Aug. 1.

The change comes as an effort to save money as military family housing on Okinawa sits at just more than 50 percent capacity while families living off base are given an overseas housing allowance to cover rent expenses.

%26quot;The focus of this new military family housing assignment policy is to increase occupancy rates in our government homes on base,%26quot; said Lt. Col. David Wilder, the 718th Civil Engineer Squadron commander at Kadena Air Base. The 718th CES staff manages the more than 8,300 military family housing units on-island.

%26quot;By increasing our occupancy in homes built for U.S. forces on Okinawa, we expect to save the Department of Defense about $30 to $50 million annually,%26quot; he said.

The policy will not affect families already stationed on Okinawa, nor will it affect unmarried military members. Through attrition, the military's goal of 95 percent occupancy will be met. At that time, incoming families will be given the choice of living on or off their installation.

%26quot;We cannot afford to continue to pay off-base entitlements when we have homes recently renovated or constructed and available on base,%26quot; Colonel Wilder said. %26quot;This shift in family housing assignment policy is not only necessary but essential in our effort to support our nation's defense commitments around the world.%26quot;

This major shift in how the U.S. military manages and assigns military family housing units has been directed by U.S. Forces Japan officials and has been fully coordinated with all services on Okinawa and beyond.

%26quot;This policy is in progress with United States Forces Japan and the intent is to implement the policy Japan-wide in the near future,%26quot; said Pamela Hann of the 718th CES.

In order to ensure the quality of life for all military families on Okinawa, the United States and government of Japan are working together to not only renovate housing already here, but also to build new housing. The projects will span about 16 years and are estimated to cost about $2.4 billion.

%26quot;The 18th Wing remains committed to serving the family housing needs of the entire joint services community on Okinawa,%26quot; Colonel Wilder said. %26quot;The 718th Civil Engineer Squadron's housing flight is the designated representative to manage and operate the Defense Department's largest family housing activity.%26quot;Has the mandate on base housing at Kadena AB (Japan) been lifted yet?
Thou Shalt Live on Base. DH just arrived there 2 months ago and we were informed( before I failed my overseas screening) that we would NOT be allowed to live off base at all.Has the mandate on base housing at Kadena AB (Japan) been lifted yet?
No. There's been too many US %26quot;servicemen%26quot; committing violent crimes on the Japanese population. A few famous ones include instances where 'servicemen' gangrape children and are then protected by the US government. That kind of behavior, or lack thereof, should absolutely NOT be tolerated. If it were done in the US, you'd be in jail for life. I still can't figure out why they weren't tried for this.Has the mandate on base housing at Kadena AB (Japan) been lifted yet?
No, it has not been lifted.

Do you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?

Berg is %26039;outraged%26039; at Congress as they failed the citizens of the United States by %26039;not%26039; challenging Obama during the Electoral Vote on January 8, 2009 and Demands that Congressional Hearings be held regarding the %26039;qualifications%26039; of Obama as we are headed for a %26039;Constitutional Crisis%26039; by having an %26039;ineligible%26039; President

LAFAYETTE HILL, PA -- Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama%26039;s lack of %26quot;qualifications%26quot; to serve as President of the United States and his case, Berg vs. Obama, in the U.S. Supreme Court is still pending regarding an Application for an Injunction, announced today that he wrote a letter to %26039;each%26039; Member of Congress requesting they call for Congressional Hearings regarding Obama%26039;s lack of qualifications for President due to their failure to question Obama during the Joint Session of Congress for the counting of the Electoral Votes. [A copy of the letter to Congress is at the end of this Release]

Berg said, %26quot;I am disappointed for the 300+ million U.S. citizens, our %26039;Forefathers%26039; and for the tens of thousands that have died defending %26039;our%26039; Constitution regarding the recent denial by the U.S. Supreme Court.

I am committed to keeping our efforts going to continue litigation until the truth of Obama being %26039;not qualified%26039; for President comes out. The Obama candidacy is the biggest %26039;HOAX%26039; ever put forth to the citizens of the United States in 230 years.

In addition to the current case in the U.S. Supreme Court, we have or will have:

A case filed two [2] months ago captioned Berg vs. Obama, said case %26039;under seal%26039; so I cannot comment further;

The case of Hollister vs. Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama, filed 12/31/08 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Civil Action No. 08-02254; said case being an %26039;Interpleader%26039; case with the Plaintiff, a retired Colonel from the U.S. Air Force, who is questioning whether to obey or disobey an order if Obama recalls him, based upon whether or not Obama is a %26039;qualified%26039; President;

The case that was denied in the U.S. Supreme Court is still pending in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Berg vs. Obama, with our Brief due by January 20, 2009; and

If Obama is sworn in as President, we will file a Petition for Writ of %26039;Quo Warranto,%26039; a case that will challenge Obama as being ineligible to serve as President because he is %26039;not qualified.%26039;

Berg states %26039;if Soetoro a/k/a Obama is sworn in%26039; because Obama knows he is %26039;not qualified%26039; and he should hold a Press Conference and Obama should state that I, as a black American, received more votes than anyone else on November 4, 2008 for President and on January 8, 2009 the Joint Session of Congress counted the Electoral College votes and announced that I am President-elect, but because of things in my background, I cannot be sworn in as President. However, Obama is not man enough to state the above!

More and more people are aware of the fact that Obama does not meet the constitutional %26039;qualifications%26039; for President. When the truth finally comes out, individuals including Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama, Howard Dean [Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC)], other top officials of the DNC, senior campaign staff and some of his new administration should be brought into the criminal justice system, indicted and tried with incarceration for those convicted.

Berg continued, %26quot;Obama is setting himself up to be blackmailed and perhaps he is already being blackmailed. He was the candidate for %26039;change,%26039; but look at his cabinet ιΆ… 70% from President Clinton%26039;s days and how about his Secretary of Defense, Gates. Give me a break!

There is nothing more important than %26039;our%26039; U.S. Constitution and we will fight on!%26quot;

Accordingly, I wrote the Members of Congress requesting immediate hearings. The letter I sent follows:

555 Andorra Glen Court, Suite 12

Lafayette Hill, PA 19444-2531

January 15, 2009

Dear Member of Congress:

It is your duty, as a duly elected representative of the American people; to regain the respect you have lost by your inaction in not vetting Soetoro a/k/a Obama, by calling for a Congressional Hearing ASAP to determine the truth regarding qualifications of Barry Soetoro, otherwise known as Barack Hussein Obama, to be President of the United States.

My, my, you and the other Members of Congress just showed your true character, that being, no guts, no backbone and only interested in getting re-elected.

I refer to each of you in your lack of action regarding the now President-elect Soetoro/Obama.

As you must be aware, there are many unresolved questions concerning Soetoro/Obama%26039;s status or lack thereof, as a %26039;natural born%26039; American citizen, as required by %26039;our%26039; U.S. Constitution.

On January 8, 2009, you failed your constituencies, your voters, the citizens in your district, as well as all citizens in our nation. Yes, you failed all of uDo you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?
Berg%26039;s arguments hit a dead end in the Supreme Court. It will stay that way.Do you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?
NO!Do you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?
At least someone is trying to vet Obama - nobody else has.Do you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?
Berg has no standing to sue. It will be thrown out, just like the other ones were.

Are you aware that when you put quotes around a word, it means the opposite? So %26quot;hoax%26quot; means it is not a hoax, %26quot;outraged%26quot; means he is not upset, and %26quot;qualifications%26quot; means that there are no qualifications for the job. So when you copy and paste a big screed like this, you might want to edit the punctuation to fix it.Do you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?
Ha, ha, ha. Are you still on THAT???

You must really love Biden if you spend that much time trying to get Obama thrown out of the Presidency against the will of the people who elected him.

Even IF Obama was born in Kenya, it would only be because of bad timing by his mother who was an American citizen.

The whole lawsuit is so ridiculous that the fact that a grown man who graduated law school is even pursuing it only proves that he is insane.

Some times I think you people are simply hopeless.Do you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?
This Congress lacks the integrity to ever examine this case.

His best course of action would be to find the original Kenyan birth certificate, the presiding Kenyan doctor, and obama%26039;s family members present at the birth in Nairobi and produce the evidence to the American people to examine.

If they are properly educated in the facts of the case then the honorable ones will demand justice.Do you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?
This letter will not work.

We may have a Constitutional crisis soon. the problem with this is that no one is responsible to check out the citizenship of an individual elected to the Presidency. The Federal Election Commission is not charged with this responsibility. It sought relief from Berg%26039;s suit because they are not responsible, and the judge let them off.

In my view, the fact that Obama did have an Indonesian passport tell me that he is not a native-born US citizen, and is therefore ineligible to be the President of the United States under the Constitutional requirements.


DanDo you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?
Berg is just a silly old nuisance. He and Nader should go off and have a cluster f*ck somewhere and leave the sane world alone.Do you think Atty Berg is going to get any traction out of this letter to congress re: Obama?
This isn%26039;t going anywhere. If our politicians couldn%26039;t muster the courage to face this issue before the election, they%26039;ll never summon the courage to face it now! The Supreme Court won%26039;t face it either, not after the debacle of 2000. So whether this case has any merit or not is totally moot now.

    Obama helps strengthen General Electric-Putin ties

    Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is seen during an interview on the first anniversary of Russia's war with Georgia, at his residence in the Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi, Saturday, Aug. ...

    (AP Photo/Alexei Nikolsky, Pool)

    Reuters reports an interesting nugget in the wake of President Barack Obama's decision to grant Vladimir Putin his wish and kill the Eastern European missile shield:

    Shortly after the pullback on the shield programme was announced, Russia's government said Prime Minister Vladimir Putin would meet several U.S. executives on Friday from firms including General Electric, Morgan Stanley as well as TPG, one of the world's largest private equity firms

    General Electric may be the company with the closest ties to the Obama administration (if not, GE is second only to Goldman Sachs), and here we see the company benefiting from an abrupt foreign policy change made by President Obama. But GE isn't the only company benefiting. Reuters paints the broader picture:

    %26quot;U.S. companies have arguably lost out to some European companies in joint ventures, and better diplomacy will likely improve the chances for investors in the strategic sectors of the Russian economy,%26quot; said Carlo Gallo, senior Russia analyst at London-based consultancy Control Risks.

    GE CEO Jeff Immelt sits on Obama's Economic Recovery Advisory Board, and GE owns MSNBC, the network famously friendly to Obama.;PID=85slq2mHow Does GE own 0bama?
    The Bush missile defense wouldn't have worked. Billions would have been spent on a band-aid approach that irritated Russia. Gates said the new type missiles launched from ships will do better. If you believed him when he was Bush's Defense Secretary, why not now?How Does GE own 0bama?
    Yes GE is in bed with the 0bama administration and the green movement,it all comes down to dollar signs,that's the only green they care aboutHow Does GE own 0bama?
    Jeff Immelt also is a class B director at the New York Federal Reserve Bank where he represents the public. Disgusting.

    Oh yeah GE was also recently fined by the SEC for cooking the books. Yet he still remains an adviser to Obama.How Does GE own 0bama?
    I thought all the networks and hollywood were 'in on this' thing with Obama? Which is it? Can't keep track of all the crazy conspiracy theories, can you?How Does GE own 0bama?
    Chicago style graft...are you surprised?
