    Why should we let anyone in? Because that's how our country works, and it's part of what makes it a great country.

    Are you pure blooded native American?

    but that isnt how our country works

    it hasnt worked like that since 1870 or so

    140 years.....

    a few things have changed since then...

    do i need to go over those changes?

    Hence, the reason I find the sudden uproar over the President - or any President for that matter - publically announcing his willingness to exercise his veto power as he sees fit odd. After all, it's not like it's the first time he's threatened to use it. Why be upset about it now?

    If a President were announce his intention to use an EO to declare that all left-handed, green-eyed males are required to sit on the left side of the bus, would you still wonder about the ensuing uproar?

    Something similar? You mean left-handed, blue-eyed males have to sit on the right hand side of the bus?

    I must have missed that one.

    There's no need to ignore something if it doesn't exist.
