Historic Governors Island was once a U.S. Army facility, and later a Coast Guard station. It's now a popular public park for New York City. http://j.mp/28Py3Um

Our military if left alone to do their job, wars now days wouldn't be so costly or long. But when you have babies like Obama and snot nosed kids running our country, it can get worse.

Don't care what body they live in, more concerned what thoughts they have in their heads.

Following the laws we have will fix everything. The problem is, is that all people in law enforcement want to help Obama break our laws. What the law enforcement should do is get off their lazy ass's catch illegals and throw them out of our country. They should not listen to Obamas babbling crap.

"The Cato Institute is the foremost upholder of the idea of liberty." - George F. Will
Introduction

The Cato Institute is a public policy research organization — a think tank — dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace. Its scholars and analysts conduct independent, nonpartisan research on a wide range of policy issues.

Founded in 1977, Cato owes its name to Cato's Letters, a series of essays published in 18th- century England that presented a vision of society free from excessive government power. Those essays inspired the architects of the American Revolution. And the simple, timeless principles of that revolution — individual liberty, limited government, and free markets — turn out to be even more powerful in today's world of global markets and unprecedented access to more information than Jefferson or Madison could have imagined. Social and economic freedom is not just the best policy for a free people, it is the indispensable framework for the future.
