House Speaker John Boehner, who said a week ago it was “time to deal with” U.S. immigration policy, said yesterday it will be difficult to pass a bill this year because fellow Republicans don’t trust President Barack Obama, whose term ends in 2017, to enforce the changes.

BusinessWeek 2-7-14

“There’s widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws,” Boehner told reporters in Washington. “It’s going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes.”

These words resonate with lots of citizens. Trust is paramount.

That should have been my "Parent's", they both did their job. So do tell me how great you are. They were too, and so are the tax payers and their families. And Your Welcome.

Of course I am suppose to pay my taxes, too bad your living off them through the government. I don't eat cookies. Or donut's or etc. etc. etc. Sweets make me sick. You know how you are about living healthy to not make the government pay your way.

Will Garr 2016, you sound very angry for being so very happy. By, the way, religion, leave it alone. Teachers, Parents, Uncles, Neighbors, are in the same boat as the Catholics. Perverts are perverts. It doesn't matter who or where. This government of mine only taxes me as I am not a farmer. I guess I am paying your way. Just say, "Thank You".

How does your wife of over 50 years feel about the pope addressing the molestation charges?

"The Koch Brothers Left a Confidential Document at Their Last Donor Conference"

Yes, one of the keynote speakers was from the Ayn Rand Society which really cracked me up.

Didn't they have a superbowl commercial where someone left the door open and a raccoon came in and slept at the foot of the bed?

What is the matter with you people? Catholic Church and the Pope are not the President of the United States. By, the way, I am not Catholic. Maybe some of you should take a step back from religion. Obama is the President of the US, and he is failing all the people. This has nothing to do with North Dakota. Or the Oil Money.

"Justaman.. Let me ask you this.. Who voted Obama into office? It was the low income welfare poverty stricken folks.. Now what party do you think they follow? Clue to you...Its the Democrats they support."

Do I understand you correctly? You're saying Catholics are responsible for this Pope who is responsible for every child molested by his church they support?

Do I understand you correctly?

How insane are you people who use the argument that "obamacare makes people less likely to work". You do realize that every other western world has free healthcare not just insurance driven and nobody has an issue working? They have lower unemployment than the USA.

Get real and come up with a better argument than that.

landslide2014 Obamacare has made it an incentive to NOT work and to ride the FREE train..

Surley landslide2014 you have served in the military at one time or are you freely enjoying the freedom others sacrificed for.

Do you understand how flawed your logic is? As in;

The Pope is responsible for every Priest who molested a child.

There are no Republicans on welfare or accept govt. aid.

I don't get it? What does your wife of over 50 years think about putting people into categories?

Thank You PJ for bringing that up, they were and still are. You need to ask for their Contractors license, Workers Comp, Insurance, and not pay hardly anything up front until the work is complete. Simple.

"Yup Garr I saw Obama"

___________

In your fantasies maybe, but nope . . . you didn't see Barack Obama.

You're an insignificant little nothing. Why would the President of the United States ever be any where near you? You're not fit to even shine his shoes.

PJ, now how does that make me a bigot? I have lived in ND, same town, since I was born. Why should you tell me how to live on my land that has been in my family 100 yrs. I don't know who you are and nor do I care, but don't tell me how to live in my space that is mine and what my Parents worked for. I won't tell you how to live in your area, another thought don't talk to me and I surely won't talk to you. Simple. Now who is the Bigot?

I'm not sure anyone figured out that this is a "trick" le question as usual.

The answer is YES of course!

Cause and effect might be as simple as why a can of Pringles cost $3.85 or how I've been afforded a chance to secure my families needs, but no doubt there are 500,000 similar and different answers to this question as the Bakken Oil Play is affecting many,many lives.

Wouldn't it be nice if the Media featured a daily story from anyone of those folks affected? 50/50 trickled on North Dakotans.

Again I say, apparently you do not live in ND, and just a jobless whiner who a computer somewhere. Your on 24/7. You don't like ND and don't live here, why does it matter to you?

"Everyone that comes here"?

This is the least visited state in the nation. There's no place less popular.

Are you kidding me?

"Everyone that comes here" -- is a punchline to a very bad joke.

Something must be working. Everyone that comes here can get a job immediately. It's better than no work at all.

Why would you people think that if the oil corporations make a ton of money -- you will get some of it?

Big Oil hasn't trickled anything down to you before.
