(CBS News)

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Sunday accused Democrats of purposefully ignoring the debt limit until the last minute, contending that they were trying to “force” Republicans into a “take-it-or-leave-it proposition.”

In an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Rubio compared the current debt limit negotiations to the recent standoff over the national budget – which in April almost led to a government shutdown – and said Democrats were manipulating the nation’s precarious economic state as part of a strategy to win political points.

“This is not a surprise,” Rubio told CBS’ Bob Schieffer, of the debt limit deadline. “This didn’t sneak up on us in the last couple of weeks here; we have known about this since the day I got to Washington.

“I think they deliberately let this thing go on because they were hoping to get to a last-minute situation so they could force us into a take-it-or-leave-it proposition, like they tried to do with the government shutdown earlier in the year, like they did with the stimulus package back in February when [President Obama] first took over,” Rubio added.

“Up until very recently, the president was completely disengaged from this debt limit debate. And I do think that in the context of politics, there was a strategy to leave this until the last moment.”

Why Jennifer Lopez’s Divorce Will Make A Lot Of People A Lot of Money

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, her husband of seven years, announced yesterday that they’ll divorce.

It’s stunning news — and not just because their partnership seemed decidedly less dramatic than Lopez’s previous two marriages.

It’s also a shock because Lopez is in the midst of a career renaissance that required no small contributions from Anthony.

… or whooping cough, dengue fever, Hepatitis, Chagas, Dysentery, Malaria

In the last twenty years, immigration enforcement has become so lax that now, illegal immigrants are causing huge financial and social burdens on Americans in spite of La Rasa’s claim that they do the jobs that Americans refuse to do. According to Democrats and the sycophant media, they are “undocumented workers,” not illegal aliens. Only in the irrational progressive mind is someone, who is deliberately breaking the law of this country, an undocumented worker and must be rewarded with citizenship, free schooling, housing, food stamps, medical care, and free or in-state tuition for their children.

— By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh :

America was built on the backs, hands, and minds of legal immigrants. We all came from somewhere else, except the Native Americans. We fled from religious persecution, communist tyranny, oppressive monarchies and regimes, legal entanglements, murder raps, theft, moral and financial responsibility to others.

We longed for the lure of riches and unbound freedom, but most of all, we desired the opportunity to be better off than our fathers and ancestors.

Lady Liberty welcomed us all, initially at Ellis Island, where thousands and thousands of newly arrived would-be Americans, gaunt and ragged from the arduous Atlantic passage remained on board three or four days in the harbor, then in quarantine before they were allowed inland. Wealthier crossers were processed on board the ship.

The would-be Americans, particularly the poor ones, suffered indignities at times but there was no ACLU to sue for their unjust treatment – they were thankful to be allowed onto the Land of Opportunity.

An important issue that threatens the health of our nation is the communicable disease emergence, ills that have been eradicated in this country years ago.

Diseases such as tuberculosis, leprosy, pertussis or whooping cough, dengue fever, hepatitis, Chagas are prevalent in third world countries and are being transported to the U.S. via illegal immigrants who are not checked and given treatment or vaccinations.

“Hepatitis A-E is making people sick across the country. Chronically suffering illegal aliens who work in our restaurants, are sneaking across our borders from oil-rich Mexico to receive the free $1,500 per patient treatment. Not only do we pay for these treatments with our tax dollars but also we unwittingly become infected with hepatitis. Some forms are transmitted through unwashed hands while handling food, others through blood donations or contact with infected blood.

~ BUT is it real? IMO, this entire thing has been engineered. Lee told Casey in jail early on, let’s find a ‘code’ to communicate. No visits because it is all recorded. Cindy lies on the stand. Did Jose script what George would say all to leave doubt in the juror’s minds?

Because it worked. ~ JP

“A baby killer was just set free!” Bree Thornton, 39, shouted at the passing SUV.

Casey Anthony’s parents will not let her return to their Florida home after she was released from jail early Sunday morning, following her murder acquittal 12 days ago in the death of her daughter.

The parents of Casey Anthony will not let her return home after she was freed from a Florida jail early Sunday, 12 days after she was acquitted of murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

~ Btw she cannot return in order to be safe. Cindy’s cousin in Ohio offered her a place to stay.

Casey’s relationship with her parents, George and Cindy, has been strained since defense attorneys accused George Anthony of molesting Casey when she was young. They also said George Anthony made Caylee’s death look like a homicide after the girl accidentally drowned in the family pool. It is not known where she will go.
