    It is hard to conceive that China & Russia, who have been flexing their muscles lately seeing how we mauled ourselves in the past decade & continue to do so, would sit idly by.

    FOOT MEET MOUTH: REPUBLICANS CHIDE YOUNG FOR HIS 'WETBACKS' COMMENT… With the GOP actively working to reshape its image, it didn't take long for top Republicans to blast one of their own, Rep. Don Young, for using the derogatory term "wetbacks" in describing migrant workers from Mexico.

    YOUNG’S COMMENT: “My father had a ranch; we used to have 50 to 60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes,” he said in an interview earlier this week. “It takes two people to pick the same tomatoes now. It's all done by machine.”

    FORCEFUL RESPONSE: “Congressman Young’s remarks were offensive and beneath the dignity of the office he holds,” House Speaker John Boehner in a written statement. “I don’t care why he said it – there’s no excuse and it warrants an immediate apology.”

    wow got to love the changes the GOP have made.
