So.......about that caravan

Message 21 of 49

The following comment is way off target. "Members of that cult apparently think that anyone who disagrees is wrong."

 

Disagreeing and debating is why we participate in a forum like this, so the comment above isn't even close to being true.

 

But you can't debate with Cult members, because they're incapable of disagreeing with or criticizing their Supreme Leader in the White House. They agree with and defend 100% of what Comrade Trump says and does.

Might be, but then there are cities like Houston, San Antonio, etc.  But you are attempting to profile an entire group.  Individually of course they attempt to keep a low profile to avoid being deported by ICE. 

 

But in the end, the word 'illegal' indicates they are breaking the law meaning they are not law abiding as you say.

 

Regarding labeling anyone politically as being in a cult, perhaps it could be said that there is here what could be called a 'liberal cult'.  Members of that cult apparently think that anyone who disagrees is wrong...

Homeless veterans is not the topic of this discussion...but of course you are attempting to change the subject.  But since you want to bring them up what are you doing for not only them, but homeless Americans?



Oh, I forgot, it's only acceptable for the Right and supposed independents to go "off topic".

 

Offer documentation of what you do to help homeless veterans and I may answer your question.

 

My point was that the money trump wants to spend on a ridiculous wall, the 60 million he has spent on golf vacations and the millions he spent deploying the military to the border could have solved our homeless veterans problem.


And that IS the topic- how do We the People spend OUR money?

 

Republicans have worked for decades to make sure the answer will always be "tax cuts for the Uberrich and obscene profits for the Death Merchants".

 

Time to expergate those who divide us with hate, greed and war and change to spending OUR money to make the lives of ALL Americans the best in the World.

 

Paying our debt to those who served to protect us is an excellent first step, and allowing GOPers to redirect the conversation is no longer acceptable.

From the reports we are getting from here, along the actual border, it appears their purpose is to stay in forward bases and play volleyball.  The caravan is scheduled to hit the border in late December but the troops are scheduled to start leaving in mid December.  Kind of demonstrates the real purpose of this $75 election stunt, doesn't it?


Not necessarily except to those on the left with an axe to burn against the administration.  I haven't seen anything in the media or otherwise about the troops playing volleyball.  Only in your posts.

 

I guess you haven't read the reports about migrants flooding into Tijuana and creating havoc there with city services?  But it appears that the troops have just about finished with the concertina wire and other barriers, so the task of the engineer troops are pretty well finished. 

 

But perhaps they should have waited until these migrants started illegally crossing the border before putting all this in place?  Did you notice that after the military started putting that concertina wire and other barriers in place, the organizers decided they should head for Tijuana?

You familiar with military logistics??   Is it the purpose of the military to stay at their home bases and play soldier?

Der Trumper is NOT "training" those Combat Engineers on the border.

 

He's probing the system to see if he can undo the Posse Comitatus Act by ignoring it. Granted lil' donny is no where near smart enough to figure this out, but the GOPerLords are. After all, they're the ones who got him to run and PROBABLY got the Russians to elect him.

If Trump really wanted to resolve the Immigration problem.  the only thing that he has to do is tell the Senate and the House, that he will not signed anything until they both come up with an immigration plan that cen be enforced and pass b y both houses.

and then shut up and if they present him with a bill  both the Senate and the House Sign it.


He tried that and along came the disingenuous whines about him shutting down the government and starving old people and children.

The wall is relatively cheap when you consider the net cost of each illegal alien ($8,000/year) but I know there are other considerations like each illegal alien will be able to vote for Hillary in the next election especially in blue voting districts where no concern is given to id, if a citizen, or even alive.

And yet, here is a real study which demonstrates undocumented immigrants contribute over $11Billion a year to our economy.  I checked your link and found zero references to any study or report. Looks like they did all the research themselves. Why is it that RWNJ publications never have any sources mentioned other than their latest trip to the restroom? Answer, because any facts would seriously screw up the fake news they continue to peddle.  

 

Send in the next conservative to the arena!!!
