They only answer you gave me was that I watch Fox News (which I do not, I do not get that station). I tried to be fair in my statement that all politicians whether on the right or the left are not the most honest of people. Now without getting nasty, you have to admit since President Trump came in office the left has not worked with him in any way. Even if he tries you all just start calling him names and will not work with him. If you really want to put a democrat in the White House instead of running all the socialist why don't you try to get someone more middle of the road.

Check out some of the facilities our service members are housed in throughout the world. These facilities at the border sure beat cat trenches or 1.2.3 trenches, and the water better than that derived from a lister bag.

If only libs showed as much concern for our service members as they do for those here illegealy, we'd be better off.

 

How many homeless Vets could have been housedwith the money spent on the Trump show yesterday?  How many suicides could hve been prevented?

 


 


 


Not even close to the amount were spending on those in this country, illegally. How about the vast millions wasted by Mueller (somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 to 35 million). We certainly received more from the parade than the investigation.

Of course, anything to show respect or support of our fighting men and women...not well received by liberals. They sure did not have anything to complain about with our last president going overboard.

  • She said in a tweet that migrants were being held in appalling conditions, and were "drinking out of toilets."
  • Critics accused her of misrepresenting the situation. The CBP said migrants were using toilet units with in-built drinking fountains for clean drinking water.
  • Ocasio-Cortez hit back, saying that on the visit they found the fountains weren't working, and "women were told they could drink out of the bowl."

After Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez visited a US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facility for migrants in El Paso, Texas, Monday, she described shocking conditions and officials using "psychological warfare" against detainees.

The most alarmingRep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez

"Now I've seen the inside of these facilities. It's not just the kids. It's everyone," she wrote on Twitter.

 

"People drinking out of toilets, officers laughing in front of members Congress. I brought it up to their superiors. They said "officers are under stress & act out sometimes." No accountability."

Her claims were disputed by the CBP.

An official told the New York Post that migrants are not drinking out of toilet bowls.

 

Instead, the official said, the facility has prison-style toilets where drinking water is dispensed from a fountain attached to the toilet as part of a single unit.

"'No one is drinking toilet water," an official said. "They're drinking potable water from the sink attached to the toilet."

Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, an immigration lawyer and Policy Analyst at the American Immigration Council, tweeted pictures of the toilet-drinking fountain combos taken from court filings and other inspections of detention facilities.

The photo shows one of the units from a 2016 Arizona court filing.

From day one he had the pussycat hat people, etc. Who stopped him from what???  He is the first President that left is not willing to work with even if he does something right. trump had both Haouse of Congress and took care of the wealthy, right?  Made major tax cuts, but now blames Dems for immigration issues?  What happened to the great negotiator?  I am really afraid that the socialist are taking hold and will steer this country in the wrong direction. Yes, trump made you afraid, didn't he?  What specifically are you afraid of?  The term itself?  you do know our education system; our highway system; our park system are all Socialist programs?  Are you afraid of them too?  See hpw sill the notion is..... They did it is South America and they are trying to do it here and we will have no where to run.  What about in Sweden?  And in Norway?  Scared?
The only thing to fear is fear itself.....

Whoa.  Whoa!   WHOA!  Where are you getting your information?!

 

Obama did release his birth certificate.  I thought that old issue of birtherism was dead and buried.

 

And what returns for what "years that were necessary" has Trump released?

 

Earlier, you mentioned Ocasio-Cortez "commutes by private plane whenever she feels like it". Where did this one come from?  You also stated she "sticks her nose where it does not belong".  Um, she's in Congress, it might be her job.  And actually she was invited to visit the border facilities (we've had this discussion before), so I'd say she "stuck her nose" right where it belongs. 

 

JMO, but I don't think Trump's tweets are a good source for getting your info.

 

You are absolutely correct, Ms. S.  It's truly amazing how misinformed Fox viewers are.  Those who swallow the garbage perpetuated by Fox are a danger to our democracy and an "enemy of the people"..

Why do some continue to spew the lie that Obama has not produced his birth certificate? His official birth certificate from the State of Hawaii was posted to the internet in June 2008. It was certified by the Republican Governor of Hawaii and the Republican Secretary of State for Hawaii.

 

Because they subscribe to Fox News....and "decided" to fore go facts.
