And another shoe drops:

It was never about drugs. It was never[/b] about gangs. It wasn't about illegal immigrants.

It was about blocking and deterring asylum seekers.

Quote
The memo goes on to describe how to effectively deter family and other caretakers from coming forward to sponsor children while their asylum cases proceed, keeping children in detention longer. Specially, one senior administration official said
Quote
“I would suggest referring sponsors for criminal prosecution… if information indicates that the sponsor facilitated the travel of the minor into the United States.”
Another official says
Quote
“This would result in a deterrent impact on “sponsors.”

Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, a judge struck down Scott Walker's and the Wisconsin GOP's efforts to restrict early voting, college IDs, and reciept use for identification. They sought to keep as many Democratic Party members from voting as possible.

Scum.

I am glad they lost this. I hope they will lose their efforts to restrict the new (Democratic Party member) governor's power, the way the NC legislative effort to do the same thing got slammed.

30% would vote to re-elect the flaming douchebag, 57% would sooner see him sent straight to Hell. Independents are breaking 3-1 in favor of seeing him go to Hell.

Summer time and living ain’t easy. Fish are dying as the temperatures climb.

Zero growth quarters sound about right for a trump managed economy, growth running two or three points behind inflation.
WTF?  Red told us just the other day the economy was zooming along.  And Red got his tax cut.

There is no indication Trump's surprise will jeopardize the nomination, however.


Yyyyep.  Right choice is the right choice, after all.
