    So however unlikely declaring an emergency is to succeed, he'll play it anyway.

    to be honest, I WANT him to. That way it can fail and we can establish a better definition/rules or set a precedent to what a national emergency actually is. That way NO president can go all rogue and tryant like and declare emergencies for totally illogical reasons.

    Totally agree with you.

    In 1944 and 1945 the Western Allies were against all attempts to assassinate Hitler. On the grounds that he must be seen to be beaten...not because of some shadowy assassin's bullet.



    I'd like to see him exposed as the buffoon and bully he is.


    I don't want him impeached...I don't want him to be able to claim Congress and the GOP stabbed him in the back.


    I want him to go to America in 2020 and face an electoral landslide against him that utterly destroy's his presidency. A blue wave that totally crushes every rotten thing he stands for.




    Perhaps we'll get a couple of Constitutional amendments out of of it too.

    I'll take it. Yes, they are breaking the law. What's your follow up?

    Thanks, so then it's the border patrols duty to stop them, and our duty to give them what they say they need. They want barriers as part of the solution. Time to stop acting stupid of $5B and pay for the ****ing fence/barrier/wall or whatever physical impediment they want.

    Sorry, thought I did answer, assuming I scrolled back correctly to the item and my response you quoted. It's illegal for an alien to cross the border without inspection or to remain in the US without authorization. It's also illegal to employ them. I was trying to note the symbiotic relationship between illegals in the work force and the US historic reliance on or preference for cheap labor. One grower in the 1960s, speaking of farm labor, was quoted: "We used to own slaves. Now we rent them."

    It was a Yes or No question. You're having difficulty with that.

    Sorry, Perry Mason. Yes.

    And, if you like, I will add that there is no complexity involved in the issue, no hypocrisy, no policies concerning refugees that have to be considered, nothing but Trump's pure concern for our great country.
