The situation on the southern border makes me sick.

The TDS is real...

This TDS malarkey is jokeshop. A lame attempt to pathologise that which they don't understand. The only good thing about it is that use of such terms is such a generous act of self-definition. Makes it easier for the rest of us.
Just sayin. eh?

their parents put them in harms way by bringing the children on a criminal endeavor.
if they stayed in mexico, i very much doubt they would be in a 'cage' now.




Considering the cartels are patrolling entry points from south of the border, looking for prey to kidnap for ransom or kidnap for slavery, I'd say you're doubt is unrealistic.

I don't know how I missed this so can someone boil it down for me? WTF is going on? I'm reading a bunch of stuff and it's not jiving. Just a paragraph as to how this became news should suffice as I've read this is nothing new.


This explains it pretty well. A marketing tool for the left going into the mid-terms. Also explains why the Dems will never try to fix immigration policies.

Open borders for anyone who will vote democrat. I doubt the dems would be all that excited if a few million republicans swarmed the border demanding asylum.

Wouldn't this be democrats colluding with foreign nationals in order to sway an election?

Show you what, the future? It tends to repeat itself, so just look to past.


You could use the same hyperbole to say if Bernie got elected we were going to turn into the USSR... But that would carry the implications that all checks and balances would fail.

You don't have a leg to stand on to say we are going in the direction of nazi Germany and that were right around the corner to genocide.

hanks to the left, the nuclear family ie "family unit" has been destroyed.


No, it's not. But the alienation of unorthodox families is coming to an end. How does the acceptance of unorthodox families, like single parents, extended families, same sex couples threaten a tight nuclear family? It just doesn't.

Ah, it was Liquesence that said he was a dictator, my mistake.

But it still stands. Show me, by generally accepted definitions (e.g. not your feels), how this admin is "terroristic" and "Reich wing".

No it's not, and adults who think critically don't truly believe that. They say it in exaggeration because they're mad Trump won.

I don't support him persay, but I also don't think he's Hitler. And I think that anyone who truly believes he is either has no grasp on history, are dulisional, or have no problem being disingenuous for political motive.

Don't cross the border illegally and you won't be prosecuted or have your children taken away from you. Quite a simple rule really.

I don't see how people can get outraged over people breaking laws and expect to treat them like they live here as a citizen. The United States is a sovereign nation with BORDERS. End of story.

No compromises and no sympathy.

That is correct. It was from 2014.

But honestly what difference does that make?

All any of this points up is the fact that the US is patently imcompetent when it comes to managing and maintaining a border. The laws are f'd up, the Border patrol is F'd up and the INS and its court system is F'd up. And the result is a humanitarian crisis.

If the US government cant do any better than this, Id suggest it give up and go away.

Hmmmm, it almost looks like you're saying the Nazi's were better.


That was at the height of their terroristic regime. Give it time, Trump has only been office for around 18 months, and look how far into the Reich wing he's already taken us! Don't underestimate the lengths this administration is willing to go for their agenda.


Oh, please... Trump did more good in his first two weeks in office than Obama did in 8 years.
