Deportation policy change offers relief for undocumented students

Illegals very happy with new Obama policy

 

For years, Roberto Guzman was afraid to drive to class at Sacramento City College for fear he would be pulled over and deported to Mexico.

 

Now Guzman – whose parents brought him to California from Zacatecas state when he was 2 – is among thousands of undocumented immigrants breathing easier.

Cummings: Black community wants Obama to "fight harder"

Fight harder how?

 

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said Sunday that African-Americans want President Obama to "fight harder" to create jobs in the struggling U.S. economy.

 

Speaking on CNN's State of the Union, Cummings said the black community is very protective of Obama and is upset by attacks coming from Republicans on the president. But the lawmaker, ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said African-Americans want Obama to not concede to Republican demands.

If I were President…

Liberals tell you "if I were President"

 

THERE'S a near-total disconnect between our real, large, urgent problems and the who's-up-who's-down cage match that is the daily bread of our pundit class. Unending wars, a bone-dry Southwest and flooded Midwest, the absence of a jobs program – these have been, at best, of anecdotal interest to the mouths that roar on television. Instead, media-friendly politicians and pundits have been obsessed with two contrived priorities: the debt ceiling and a presidential election that's 15 months away.

 

"In moments of crisis, style dissolves into character," says Warren Bennis, the scholar of leadership who has advised four presidents. And not just for our leaders – talking heads are also being tested. For all their eloquence, most have nothing to say that we haven't heard them say before. Bored and frustrated, I found myself hoping for ideas that might challenge or inspire. Then I asked a range of Americans who don't labor in politics or the media what they'd do if they were president.

Social Security disability on verge of insolvency

Shocker!

 

Laid-off workers and aging baby boomers are flooding Social Security's disability program with benefit claims, pushing the financially strapped system toward the brink of insolvency.

 

Applications are up nearly 50 percent over a decade ago as people with disabilities lose their jobs and can't find new ones in an economy that has shed nearly 7 million jobs.

GM says bankruptcy excuses it from Impala repairs

"New" GM says it's not responsible

 

General Motors Co (GM.N) is seeking to dismiss a lawsuit over a suspension problem on more than 400,000 Chevrolet Impalas from the 2007 and 2008 model years, saying it should not be responsible for repairs because the flaw predated its bankruptcy.

 

The lawsuit, filed on June 29 by Donna Trusky of Blakely, Pennsylvania, contended that her Impala suffered from faulty rear spindle rods, causing her rear tires to wear out after just 6,000 miles.
