US Congressman From Polk County Slams President Obama’s Amnesty Plan

Amnesty

U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Fla., from Polk County, Florida,  part of the Republican leadership as senior deputy majority whip, didn’t pull any punches on Thursday morning against President Barack Obama’s plan to use executive power to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. “Two weeks ago, President Obama stood before the American people and announced that he had heard the voters’ message. But the underlying meaning of the following statement proves that his agenda is contrary to what Americans desire: ‘Still, as president, I have a unique responsibility to try to make this town work.’ Actions speak louder than words,…

Wacky Wednesday – Suffering from stress? Not feeling sexy? The Answer May Be Frog Juice

Peru Frog Juice

LIMA, Peru – Suffering from stress? Not feeling sexy? High in the Andean mountains, some locals believe putting frogs in a blender is the answer.
