  • Building a fence to keep illegals out prevents the problem.

    Preventing a problem is cheaper and easier than trying to solve one.

    Don't know about Newsweek, Steve, but (past) Time ran it on their cover. They basically admit it is a lie and they don't care. It has gotten to the point that anything out of the left's mouth is automatically a lie unless they can prove it isn't. And of course they don't give a rat's behind about the illegal kids or their illegal parents. They only care about how they can use them. Trump is right about the dummerats not gonna lift a finger on immigration. It is too valuable (they think) as a campaign issue. They are either too stupid to see that we see what they are up to, or too arrogant to care, thinking they will get more votes from it. I'm just glad that they haven't yet (and won't) learn their lesson about underestimating Trump.

    Mike is right about building the wall. But the left will fight that tooth and nail. Another option worth thinking about is station the military shoulder to shoulder along the border to stop the invasion. Give the invaders fair warning of the first shot just above the head. Then if they break the plane of the border, go for the money shot. Might not take long to have a different kind of wall! But seriously, if we start talking about something like that, maybe a real wall wouldn't sound so bad to the loons. And it would give the nattering naysayers something different to nash their teeth about.

  • Yup, that is similar to the one I saw Newsweek considering (or so I was told). Maybe they thought it too similar and that was the reason they went with a different one. Not ethics. Time won that low distinction.

    It points out how the Anti-Trump forces keep playing the emotion violin so well. Normally non-political members of an ebay group have even violated their own policies this week.

    I even violated MY normal sideline position on a year old video that was lying about a police arrest in Georgia. I thought the clip was suspiciously short, so I searched for a more complete one.

    It showed a totally different scenario than the one being pushed and all I did was suggest others look at the full video before passing judgement. I did not critize other comments because some were friends.

    The hate turn toward me and someone even made a statement about me using what appeared to be a picture I had posted on my account. I had no such picture so I reported it to Facebook, then shut the feed off so I would not be pulled into any further discussion.

    Fair Share I think Trump uses the tactics you mentioned about pushing an extreme position in order to get a more middle of the road agreement. The same way that extremists on both sides often bring about a better compromise.

    I never expected the child separation to last, but it was not a good choice to make a point. This one was a mistake but he was man enough to correct it.

    I still think Trump is more a Democrat than Republican but the left is pushing him so hard that he plays it tough. Although some will never be able to stop hating him, if they backed off they might just see a different President.

    He sure has a different style of dealing and negotiating than most people are familiar with. I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for them to back off a little and see things in the plain light of day.

  • Since the wall would require the cooperation of democrats, it probably is a no-go.

    There is another simple solution that is entirely in Trump's hands.

    Instead of identifying, cataloging, processing, fingerprinting, and prosecuting illegals, simply put them on the next plane back to their home country.

    No detention, no seperation, no time to file grievances, or get a bleeding heart lawyer here. Catch them, herd them to a plane and ship them off.

    The US Marshall's service already has their JPATS system up and running so there is no extra infrastructure to create.

  • Dumpty was the one who used these babies for political purposes.Obama only separated kids that were in danger situations from their parents.Dumpty said he started zero tolerance to use as a bargain for a wall.This was his policy.Crossing the border is only a misdemeaner as we do not take kids from parents charged with misdemeaner.Dumptys order corrected nothing.Now the kids will be jailed with their parents.When you go to jail you get a slip of paper for your belongings.When they took these kids from their parents they gave them nothing.Most will never be reunited.That picture changes nothing.I would be upset to see my mother handcuffed after traveling as Dumpty calls it"a nature trail".

    Glad to see governors of both parties across America are either pulling their national guards from the border or refusing to send them.

    I only have 2 more words to say about this.Dumpty's Katrina.

    Unreal, it sounds like you think the illegal kids should be used as a get out of jail free card for their illegal parents.

    Off subject ( but hey, this isn't Carl's sandbox and I think Steve will tolerate it), I miss unreal's joke of the day. Here's one of mine.

    Q: What is the difference between an AR-15 and a whiny liberal?

    A: An AR-15 only has one trigger.🤭

  • Lets be real, what is YOUR solution for illegal aliens?

    Once again, with apologies to Yoda, the stupid is strong with this one.

    Most people serving time in county jails are there for misdemeanor offenses. If a person is serving 48 hours for a DUI, which is a misdemeanor, do they get to bring their kids with them?

    What Kids? Whose Kids? We have no way of knowing who these children are just like the parents< We just don't have any way of knowing who is who.

    Parents who take their children across a dessert to a land they know nothing about is CRUEL! I would never think of doing it.

    But then, most of those children were sold to people to bring them into America at the cost of the children being raped and stuck in the back of semi trucks to suffocate or dye of thirst. What kind of Parent does that to their loving children?

    Mexico is mostly responsible for these immigrants coming through Mexico to America. We need to punish Mexico by routing every immigrant through wooden tunnel (Like in the big cities where they are remodeling a store front) that leads them back into Mexico.

    When they find out they cam all that way to get here just to be set back across the border in Mexico to deal with - well I can just imagine the **** coming out of the mouths of the Demon rats.

    There is no simple solution. People are going to suffer.

    I would bet anyone, that when those children walked into those areas set up for them where they could go to the bathroom, eat 3 meals a day, wash off some of that dessert dust and filth they went through, had a bottle of water to drink and received medical attention - They were HAPPY!

    All you Demon rats want the children to go to jail with all the adults than taken care of in another facility.

    All those military bases were closed down and called concentration camps by conspiracy theorists but later called "Relocation Centers". We couldn't use them for Americans who were forced out of their homes by Fires, Floods, Tornadoes etc., but are now starting to be used for illegal aliens to live in.

    I say catch and release back into Mexico. That is where they came from so make Mexico care for them and Mexico will stop them at all their borders from coming into Mexico. They would teach them to let them come all the way through Mexico just to have to go through Mexico again to go home.

    Trump only needs to threaten Mexico with that and that would be the end to this madness.

    We all need to be ready for that blue wave come November. Don't get too concerned about it tho. We've all seen it before. Remember the Tidy Bowl commercials?

    Crazy old Mad Max keeps going further off the deep end. It's her right to say stupid stuff. But to be fair to her crazy followers, she really should warn them that harassing people could be deleterious to their health.

    Did anyone see that SCOTUS ruled Trump's "refugee ban" is legal? Like we knew all along.

  • After James Brown's,.... er.... Maxine Water's speech someone put a decapitated, burned animal on the front porch of a DHS official.

    Democrats going from burning crosses to burning animals as intimidation... is this improvement or worsening?

    Did everyone hear on the news that once an illegal alien steps foot in the United States soil, they are entitled to "Due Process of the Law"? They are referred to as "Persons"!

    A person is a strawmen and strawwomen or in legal terminology "a corporation". A Corporation does NOT have unalienable rights secured by the U.S. Constitution. A "Person" is a Federal Citizen and subject to "Federal law" (AKA) statutory law, NOT Common Law.

    Therefore a person only has equal protection of "Civil Rights" Not protected by Dejure Due Process of (Common Law). They may have due process of civil law, but not due Process of the "Law".

    If they are equal under the law, why are the parents not arrested for child endangerment, conspiring with coyotes to kidnap their children and take them across Country Borders for the purpose of human trafficing of Sex Trafficing or even Murder of the children who died in the back of trailers of the trucks parked at Walmart and other places, etc..

    The parents are staying home until their children are anchored in America as citizens, so their parents and all their relatives can come in and live off American taxpayer.

    Mad Max is a disgrace not only to America, but to the human race. She is the most racist person in America and has no place in our congress.

    This just shows you how brain dead our congress is. Conservatives have been fired, replaced, and or made to resign for doing less. She has created her very own "FASCIST" Hate Group, not just against Trump, but everyone who works for or supports Trump. She is determined to shut down the current government which is insurrection against the United States Government and an act of Treason. But like Hillary and Barrack Husein Obama II, nothing will be done about it.

    She is so Hate Racist, that no amount of words could make the people believe she was really sorry for saying what she has said and certainly not for what she has done and hasn't done.

    She has too much hatred to be allowed to sit on a congress seat, where congress must work with the other side to make laws that none of them know the first thing about.

    AND while I am thinking about it, you all seen where 5 of the 9 Justices ruled that the President had the power to protect the borders and block certain countries from entering our borders.

    Did you see that? Almost 50/50. Another example of Obama dividing the country and the Supreme Court.

    They wanted to rule on what Trump said in his campaign speeches. What politician says or makes promises during their campaign but doesn't do it after elected or does just the opposite? That is just human nature and sometimes saying things you are not aware that it is against the law.

    The thing is - - All those idiots on the Supreme court are suppose to know the law and codes according to the bills made by congress and passed into law by the presidents. They don't know anymore about the law than a lot of people. If they did, they would almost ALWAYS rule the same way on all cases.

    The thing is, what is a law for one man doesn't always apply to another man, because of the class of people our congress has created.

    The lawyers make the mistake of saying "that law was overturned" by a lower court decision. If it is an article 3 court ruling, an article 2 or article 4 court ruling can NOT Overturn an Article 3 court ruling. It can however change that law to be applied to someone who doesn't know his/her rights and be tried as a corporation with civil rights where the government can change your civil rights anytime they want to.
