Cough.
Note that having breached the wall they turned themselves in. Because they are making the claim of asylum, a legal immigration status.

You underrate the value of nekkid. 

I'll bet that nekkid is valuable in a sandstorm.

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

113*F if my arithmetic is correct. No fun, that.
Pfffft.

Dakotans are cold weather braggarts.   Phoenicians are heat braggarts.   Either place,  if the power goes out,  we're dead.   At least here we can put on coats,  crawl into a sleeping bag,  and have some chance.   There's no garment that repels 113.

So Republicans, how is that effort to clean the party of White Supremacists going? 

Well, you can respond to Ms Sanders if you like

“The Republican leadership, unlike Democrats, have actually taken action when their members have said outrageous and inappropriate things,” Sanders said.

Trump to Nancy:
Your trip overseas is postponed if you want to fly in Government planes
Try Jet Blue if you must go.
Will check Jet Blue flights to Afghaistan.

Meanwhile note that it is the Secret Services's wish that the person third in line to the presidency not fly commercial, even to Brussels, where you can fly commercial, and Egypt, where Pelosi had no intention of going.

Shift from racist to outrageous and inappropriate duly noted. Behave as expected, Sanders.

The FBI is a bit of mess

This BEYOND the Mueller probe.

Barr seems like a solid appointee that can clean it up a bit.
That the FBI investigates the suspicious activity of the politicians you like does not make it a mess.

The Tax Foundation threw some cold water on the Progressive/leftists in the democrat party and their desire to raise the marginal tax rate...

Well, of course they would, since their whole reason for existing is to argue against tax increases.
Pretty obvious anyone would argue against that tax increase given it would be a disaster for taxpayers.
Not for me it wouldn't. Not for.anyone I know.

Quite a change from the 71 - 23 against overturning Roe in the NBC/WSJ poll last July. But then, my Brother Knights did not have the question asked that way. Only 16% in that poll wanted to have abortion made illegal. Supporting any restriction at all was viewed as the equivalent of wanting Roe overturned, even though a strong majority of both parties supported abortion. There is an advantage to actually reading beyond headlines.
Which you didn't do.
Overturning Roe v. Wade is not the equivalent of outlawing abortion.
LOL. A large majority in that poll supported the continued legal protection of abortion.
Yes, my point.  How many times you want to repeat it?

The poll never asked if Roe should be overturned.
The whole point of the poll.

Rather than asking Americans whether they support or oppose Roe v. Wade, Marist and KOC asked about the ideal outcome of a reconsideration of the Court's original ruling. The poll asked respondents, "Which comes closest to your view of what the Supreme Court should do when it reconsiders Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling making abortion illegal in the United States?"
Most Americans either wanted the Court to make abortion illegal (16 percent) or to "allow states to make certain restrictions" (49 percent). Both of these outcomes would effectively overturn Roe v. Wade

Yes indeed, that is the intellectually dishonest slight of hand at issue.
