The Obama administration’s new plan to grant temporary work permits to illegals may cost more than $585 million and require hiring hundreds of new federal employees. See? It’s not amnesty, it’s a jobs program.

Speaking in Philadelphia, Vice President Joe Biden told the crowd, “I wish my kids would become wealthy.” Don’t tell Obama, but I think that’s Joe’s way of saying he’s voting Republican this year.

North Korea’s women’s soccer team walked off before Thursday’s match. Organizers accidentally displayed the South Korean flag and the North Koreans were outraged. They will never be able to go home now that they know what it is like to be angry and have food.
A Washington D.C. voting group sent out voter registration forms to dead people and pets in Virginia. It was a little obvious to the county registrars. During Virginia’s last presidential primary General Robert E. Lee voted for Obama and Traveler voted for Hillary.
