7:07AMMST- Roy Beck-Numbers USA ...In response to the Senate’s 'Gang of Eight' proposal that offers amnesty to 11 million undocumented immigrants, NumbersUSA has launched a petition to protest the addition of new workers to our economy when millions of current U.S. citizens are not able to find a job. The petition opposes the Senate proposal based on the following facts:
• It would cause trillions in extra government spending on social services.
• It would immediately put millions of illegal aliens in front of the employment line to hold or take U.S. jobs while 20 million Americans who want a full-time job can't find one.
• It would allow amnestied aliens to begin endless chains of relatives to come and add further competition for jobs and government resources.
• It would immediately legalize 11 million illegal aliens without requiring triggers that fully implement enforcement first. The previous seven amnesties between 1986 and 2000 promised enforcement, most of which never came once the legalization occurred, enticing 11 million new illegal immigrants who now demand their own amnesty.
The petition will be immediately faxed to each of the signers Senators and Representative and petition signers will receive on going updates in the upcoming effort against another amnesty.

He says there are also reports of heavy fighting at another nearby military air base called Nairab. Further from CAIRO — An Egyptian opposition group accused the government on Wednesday of covering up torture at the hands of security forces.The charge came after a government forensic report claimed 28-year-old activist Mohammed el-Gindy was killed in a car accident. It contradicted family and friends, who said he died after he was electrocuted and beaten on his head repeatedly in detention earlier this month.In a separate case, activists also accused authorities of trying to conceal the identity and age of 12-year-old Omar Salah, killed by security forces' gunfire during clashes around Cairo's Tahrir
8:07AM MST: Dr. Margaret Cochran,Dr. Cochran is a transpersonal psychologist, licensed clinical social worker, educator and author with more than 30 years of clinical experience. She is most often described by her patients as tough, compassionate and smart. She has a provocative message on her answering machine: " Who are you, what do you want and how and when can you be reached? If you know the answer to these seemingly simple questions, be joyful, because most of us spend our whole lives working on the answers." She takes a prismatic approach to therapy saying “I see things as a whole and acknowledge the intricate value of the parts therein. In our culture, we tend to value the rational and linear ways of exploring and thinking about the world above all else. But our senses need not be limited to just perceiving the three dimensional, corporeal world. Science has shown that everything is made of energy which we receive and interpret at various levels and to varying degrees.”
