good for you.
LOL repeat LOL as we had already done that in the 1820s and it is kind of amusing when the right wing get all bend out of shape over Mexicans daring to crossed over the border without the proper paperwork/permission to know that a large part of the red states was seized from Mexico by having the bulk of the then US army crossing into Mexico.
We could of course now solved the problem by taking all of Mexico into the US an that was consider in the 1820s but decided again as congress of the time did not have any desire to deal with such a large and foreign people.
Once more LOL.
freeing up all of that capital for Commerce may be enough.
Secure borders are a good idea, A wall is a stupid idea. Just look at a map. Notice anything on either end of the proposed wall?
just right wing, Orwellian fantasy.
Doug Elmets has been donating to liberal candidates for the past 12 years. He's what is called a RINO who has always hated conservatives.
Not surprising but all of these RINO's are neoconservatives, open borders globalist elitist of the GOP establishment. Of course they are scared (*)(*)(*)(*)less that Trump might become POTUS and if Trump were to make America great again, globalism will likely fail.
These are all pro globalist and neoconservatives who have gone back from where they came from.

POLITICS Trump’s Foreign Policy Adviser Denies Holocaust: “The Ovens Were Too Small”
The Trump Campaign only named five foreign policy advisors in March, and one of them is Joseph E. Schmitz, a former high-level Bush Administration official whose tenure ended awash with partisan complaints by fellow Republicans. He is now accused of targeting Jewish people for termination while working at the Department of Defense while directing a 60,000 person federal investigatory agency overseeing our nation’s military at the start of the Iraq War as McClatchy reports:
Joseph Schmitz is accused of bragging when he was Defense Department inspector general a decade ago that he pushed out Jewish employees. “His summary of his tenure’s achievement reported as ‘…I fired the Jews,’ ” wrote [Daniel] Meyer, a former official in the Pentagon inspector general’s office whose grievance was obtained by McClatchy. Meyer, who declined to comment about the matter, cited in his complaint another former top Pentagon official, John Crane, as the source and witness to the remarks.
Crane worked with Schmitz, who served as inspector general between April 2002 and September 2005…“In his final days, he allegedly lectured Mr. Crane on the details of concentration camps and how the ovens were too small to kill 6 million Jews.”
In addition to Schmitz’s law practice, he’s also a former general counsel of the Prince Group, which owns the mercenary corporation Blackwater. The private military company is best known today for the 2007 Nisour Square massacre in Iraq which resulted in the slaughter of seventeen civilians by four soldiers of fortune.
Schmitz is no stranger to partisan attacks resulting from his prior term working for the federal government, playing out in the press and accusing him of official misconduct or corruption. Republican Senator Chuck Grassley from Iowa – the very same lawmaker who is blocking President Obama’s Supreme Court choice today – accused Schmitz of covering up for Bush-era corruption, according to Newsweek:
Schmitz’s rocky three-and-a-half-year tenure as the Defense Department’s inspector general ended in September 2005 amid a barrage of attacks questioning his leadership, mostly notably from Senator Charles Grassley, the long-serving Iowa Republican who has championed whistleblower rights at the Pentagon. Grassley, then-chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, accused Schmitz of blocking investigations of Bush administration officials tied to Iraq and Afghanistan war contracts and questioned his ties to lobbyists.
“Schmitz slowed or blocked investigations of senior Bush administration officials, spent taxpayer money on pet projects and accepted gifts that may have violated ethics guidelines, according to interviews with current and former senior officials in the inspector general’s office, congressional investigators and a review of internal e-mail and other documents,” The Los Angeles Times reported in 2005.
Daniel Meyer filed the complaint in question against Schmitz this past July, which was only released this afternoon by the Merit Systems Protection Board -a panel which tries employment grievances administratively after being submitted by federal employees. Meyer is still in government service today, serving as the head of the Obama Administration’s whistleblower protection unit. Today, Shmitz replied:
“I do not recall ever even hearing of any ‘allegations of anti-Semitism against [me],’ which would be preposterously false and defamatory because, among other reason(s), I am quite proud of the Jewish heritage of my wife of 38 years,” he wrote in an email. Later in a phone interview, he said his wife was not a practicing Jew but “ethnically Jewish” because her maternal grandmother was a Jew.
But multiple others in the Army have leveled similar complaints against Schmitz, who purports to be one of the five people that aren’t “the shows” that Donald Trump turns to for his foreign policy advice.
Trump’s entire campaign is based on racial profiling and religious discrimination, adding misogyny and homphobia with his choice of Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate. It’s unsurprising that the Trump Campaign – which regularly tweets anti-Semitic messages and wants to profile anyone of dark skin as Muslim too – would retain the services of an anti-Semitic, in a clear nod to his white supremacist and neo-Nazi supporters.
Typical Republican hater and antisemite.
A lack of another Army Group; is what helped Germany lose their, two front war.
Better HR could have made German victory possible.
Not really........... watch any of the good documentaries on the structure of the drug gangs that operate between
Mexico and Texas and you will soon see that if these gangs are allowed to go back and forth freely into the USA and
then back into Mexico.......
they will gain more and more and more and more economic power over Americans.
"drafting" the southern Americas into our US drug war is not very Libertarian, either. why not end our drug war to lower our tax burden. Where is Mr. Trump on the drug war?
I am not certain... but I am one Canadian Conservative who believes that
cannabis should be decriminalized..... and soon.
decriminalization is up for a vote in November, in California.
