Socialists have kept your sorry ass from starving in a ditch or being eaten by your neighbors.

You owe them your vote.

Still winning.

Except at spelling or, perhaps, reading.

Rudy thinks that perhaps colluding is not a crime.





The mayor is correct

If the mayor were correct, then this would have been his position since joining the team, Kid.

This is just the scheme du jour.

Colluding with the paperboy would not be illegal. Colluding with the Russians would be, not because of the word "colluding" but because of what it meant was going on.

Ah, the data.

Here is the FY2018 data for the Southwest:
286,290 aliens apprehended.
68, 560 family units
37,450 unaccompaniend alien children (UAC)
13.1% UAC.

96,236 people presented themselves at the border and were deemed inadmissable.
37,395 family units
6,728 UAC
18% UAC.

The Congressman was totally right that the "family separation" crisis was made of lies.

He's just wrong about who was lying and why, Kid.

And now, so are you.

In FY2013, approximately 38k UAC were apprehended.
In FY2014, approximately 67k UAC were apprehended.
In FY2015, approximately 39k UAC were apprehended.
In FY2016, approximately 59k UAC were apprehended.
In FY2017, approximately 41k UAC were apprehended.

A glance tells us why the author chose 2014 for the starting point. A read of the article tells us that the author provided no source for the numbers, but a look at FY2018 suggests that the 80% number may be compared to family units rather than individuals within those units. May. Hard to tell from what was written.

The mayor is correct

Collusion is more a term from anti-trust law.
But it's mostly shorthand.  There are other charges that could be brought. 
This AP article provides a good overview:

"Conspiracy to defraud the United States" sounds like a pretty good overall description of the Trump presidency.

It's a good thing that Trump declared (tweeted) that North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat!

Otherwise, we might need to be concerned about their missile construction.

Good to see Josh and Bo back.

In terms of the constitution, let's not forget the Emollients Clause,  which was violated when Donnie allowed Vlad to apply moisturizer where the wallet chafing was worst.

America has never not been great.  Though Trump is an embarrassment to our greatness.

FIRST!

So...you were okay with slavery? Jim Crow? Chinese Immigration Act? The Reconstruction Era? Tom Yawkey?

No, America has always struggled to be great, but at its core, there was a striving by many to create a greater country. So, there are those Americans among us still engaged in making a greater country. But that group of Americans does not include members of the GOP, or their "leader".

I'd be surprised if I continue to discuss politics here.  But if this thread plays out reasonably, without rancor and name calling, and includes useful links and info, I'd happily stick around and contribute.

I hope you do, you prevaricating swine, you whoreson bag of guts!

For a while here, there were halcyon days when all name-calling was achieved with a simple code that required a minimum of keystrokes and did not overly intrude on the flow of discourse.  When anyone said something purely partisan and mendacious, "LPC" was sufficient to address the transgression against reasoned debate.

Very possible.  We're going to build a wall.  The most powerful firewall ever in the history of the world.  Oklahoma will pay for it.

To begin with, 80 percent of the children who have crossed over since 2014 are not with parents but are unaccompanied. Only 20 percent come with parents.

LOL. How do these dimwits think this statistic disproves the Trump Administration policy of separating children from parents legally requesting refugee status, and their failure to fully comply with court ordered reunification?

Why do you think they are saying it does?
