Joint Statement by the Presidents of the United States, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador
2014-07-25 19:03:20 (16 seconds ago) 

The Presidents of the United States, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador issued the following statement at the conclusion of their meeting at the White House on July 25, 2014:

We met today to discuss our ongoing collaboration regarding the increased numbers of unaccompanied minors and adults with children migrating to the United States.  We expressed our shared belief in the need for a humanitarian response to the situation, with a focus on the safety and well-being of children and families. We reiterated our commitment to prevent families and children from undertaking this dangerous journey and to work together to promote safe, legal, and orderly migration.  We pledged to continue to pursue the criminal networks that are exploiting this uniquely vulnerable population and we agreed on the need to discourage the use of smuggling networks that place individuals at high risk of violent crime and sexual abuse along the journey. We reviewed and agreed to redouble our joint efforts to counter misinformation about U.S. immigration policy. We committed to work together on the ongoing efforts to humanely repatriate migrants, consistent with due process.

We expressed our commitment to work together in a spirit of shared responsibility to address the underlying causes of migration by reducing criminal activity and promoting greater social and economic opportunity.  The Presidents of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras welcomed President Obama’s request for additional foreign assistance as part of the supplemental request to Congress to support the U.S. response to the increased migration. The Central American presidents indicated to President Obama that they are working on a comprehensive plan to address the underlying causes of the humanitarian situation on the border. We all agreed that an effective solution requires a comprehensive and joint effort on the part of the governments of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, the United States, as well as other countries in Central America, and Mexico and Colombia. We directed our teams to begin coordinating such a plan, in collaboration with other international partners.  Our objective is to create the conditions that will allow the citizens of Central America to live in safe communities with access to education, jobs, and opportunities for social and economic advancement.

TAHMOORESSI STORY

Not so simple

We are led to believe that Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi accidentally took a wrong turn and ended up in Mexico where he was arrested for gun possession.

Some writers have indicated he is a hero who is being wrongfully incarcerated.

And that the U.S. should put pressure on Mexico to release him immediately.

What the Tahmooressi apologists fail to say is:

■ He had driven over the border three times previously so he was familiar with the route.

Texas open carry activists meet on Grassy Knoll, denounce president
2014-07-25 18:51:03 (13 minutes ago) 
'I don't care how much propaganda Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, that usurper foreigner president, you worry about foreigners comin' over the border we got a foreigner as president! We got a foreigner that was born in Kenya that has an illegal birth certificate as president and you guys are worried about foreigners comin' over the border!' So this is a thing that happened.
A group of open carry gun activists who protested Saturday at Dealey Plaza in Dallas filmed a bizarre, more-than-10-minute video of their demonstration and posted it to YouTube.

One activist appeared on camera to explain that the group, which the Dallas Observer identified as Come And Take It Dallas, gathers every third Saturday of the month to pass out Second Amendment literature. The same speaker then went on a rant against foreigners and refers to President Barack Obama as a "usurper foreigner" born in Kenya.

Dallas' Dealey Plaza is the site at which President John F. Kennedy was assassinated with a rifle shot from a nearby building.

So a group of activists carrying rifles regularly meet at the scene of an infamous presidential assassination via rifle and proclaim while fondling their rifles that the current president is not the nation's legitimate leader.

That is a thing that happens.

"3D printing of warheads will allow us to have better design control and utilize geometries and patterns that previously could not be produced or manufactured," James Zunino, a researcher at the Armament Research, Engineering and Design Center said. "Warheads could be designed to meet specific mission requirements whether it is to improve safety to meet an Insensitive Munitions requirement, or it could have tailorable effects, better control, and be scalable to achieve desired lethality."

Fast food workers from around the country are gathering outside Chicago this weekend to build connections and plan their continuing fight for a $15 an hour wage and the right to unionize, demands around which a series of one-day strikes have centered:
About 1,300 workers will attend sessions Friday and Saturday at an expo center in Villa Park, Illinois, where they’ll be asked to do “whatever it takes” to win $15-an-hour wages and a union, said Kendall Fells, organizing director of the national effort and a representative of the Service Employees International Union. [...]

“We want to talk about building leadership, power and doing whatever it takes depending on what city they’re in and what the moment calls for,” said Fells, adding that the ramped-up actions will be “more high profile” and could include everything from civil disobedience to intensified efforts to organize workers.

“I personally think we need to get more workers involved and shut these businesses down until they listen to us,” perhaps even by occupying the restaurants, said Cherri Delisline, a 27-year-old single mother from Charleston, South Carolina, who has worked at McDonald’s for 10 years and makes $7.35 an hour.

It's got to be immensely empowering for workers to have the chance to meet and share stories with people working for the same fast food chains, sharing the same struggles, even though they live in states hundreds of miles apart. Just the ability to get this many workers to a national conference is a show of organizational strength, and a clearer sign than any "we're going to keep fighting" quote can possibly provide that, yes, they're going to keep fighting.
