Despite crying ALCOA all the time, I'm normally not a very tin foily person, but is

there any evidence that the Koch brothers are behind the recent influx of child refugees from Central America? Who is telling everyone to come? Any articles/reporters investigating it? The RW wants to blame Obama which seems awfully convenient. What is the real cause?

2. Although I believe direct involvement is unlikely, you lead to an intresting.............

observation.
When you have a two party system and one of those two parties has become flat out nutz it's easy to consider such actions possible.
Considering the reprehensible actions of the GOP for at least the last 25 years. When you think of the ethics of their leadership as shown by David Vitter, Newt Gingrich, Scott Walker and others. When you think of the intellectual powers of their leader ship as shown by Michele Bachmann or Louie Gohmert. When you add the total commitment to obstruction exemplified by John Bohner and Mitch McConnell, it becomes all too easy to think that this is just one more GOP dirty trick.

It may well be that the GOP's desire to play the perpetual 'Boris Badenov' may be harmful in more than the obvious ways.

3. Exactly. The crew that breaks into nursing homes and bribes VA delegates to quit is capable of much.

Someone should be investigating what caused a flood of children to travel to the US.

4. There is allays some amount of people coming across the border...........

The world in general has an unfortunate surplus of refugees...
“If this was happening in any other part of the world, the United States would be telling the receiving countries they have an obligation to protect the arriving migrants. We’ve done that to much poorer countries who have seen much poorer people,”

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/are-border-children-refugee-crisis-u-s-n121441

It is quit possible that this is only a moderate increase in people seeking shelter and not the disease ridden, terrorist driven FLOOD of 'takers' the GOP propaganda reports.
Even if some element of the GOP is not directly responsible, their willingness to use this crisis or any other crisis for political gain does enough damage in and of it's self.
That the U.S. can see this in any other light than humanitarian diminishes us at our very being.
Such is the price of living in a two party system where one political party has gone flat out Nutz.

5. True, but remember this isn't floods of refugees (famlies, seniors, infants, mothers, etc) this is

only children refugees. It seems coordinated to me. Why wouldn't entire families come? All of these kids can't have a parent in the US. Something triggered this event.
