The border crisis is definitely super important, but it'll need to wait as we handle the commie crisis, socialist crisis, gay crisis, kneeling football player crisis, antifa crisis, Christianity under attack!(tm) crisis, and more.

One might hope that the "rich guys get ever richer even during a pandemic" crisis would be on the list, but nope. And fixing Climate Change? What Climate Change!

Also, please take a note that if the borders were actually closed and every illegal kicked out, a lot of industries would instantly have major issues (as was about to happen in AL or GA, I forget which, which suddenly did an about face when they realized nobody was going to be there to work the fields. Turns out that out of work older American factory workers from Cleveland don't want to work for no benefits in 100 degree sun all day, who knew...)
In other words, the border and illegals is not a simple situation with some easy fix for whichever problem you want to look at related to it.

As far as drugs coming in...well, when there is a demand there will be a supply. Lessons will never be learned I guess...Prohibition didn't work, the War on Drugs is only successful for the private prison industry and lots of government task force budgets, and trying to stop drugs at the border won't work either.

Trump’s new strategy for the War on Drugs is the execution of dealers, sounds very Third Worldly.

Unbelieveable.

The people of Denmark and Germany are set on constructing the Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link, which when finished, will be the longest combined road and railroad tunnel in the world.

Descending up to 131 beneath the Baltic Sea, it will link Denmark and Germany.

But in this country: Let's send women to prison who have had an abortion! And let's do it immediately!

you are the weirdest version of a self-hating closet conservative of the ~1970s stripe that I have seen in a very long time.

Seriously, I get it now. Stop pretending, lol.
Calm down, dude. I refuse to accuse someone of a crime unless there is a basis for it.

One more time: Calm down.

When someone actually accuses DeSantis of the crime of human trafficking in a court of law, then you can scream. Right now, it's just bellicose people who don't like Republicans.

I don't like the GOP either. But I'm not going to raise my blood pressure attacking individuals who may not want to fulminate against certain ones on a discussion forum.

You're the one who just dosen't get it. All DeSantis is doing is expressing to the world how White Supremacy still rules this land. I think what DeSantis and Abbott are doing to innocent migrants are reprehensible. But I am not urging violence. Let's see how any lawsuits filed against DeSantis are handled first.

After reading many posts from some unhinged folks on here, I am certain a few would grasp hold of hanging ropes and ride off with mobs. Accept that not everyone is going to agree with you.

Isn't that what Democracy is about?

Don’t forget about the all important CRT and woke crises.

Lets not forget the 50 immigrants in Martha's Vineyard Crisis.

No, the real concern is why they needed the National guard. Fraud, government waste, and corruption are not a concern because both parties…



How did I do? Do I sound like a clown?
Not a clown like pcgeek though. He'll argue a point then spend pages saying he never argued that, even after people quote him literally saying exactly what he claims he never argued. After he tried that he then tried just straight up saying he was allowed to believe easily disproven lies because "its a secret".

Which, it often boils down to something completely stupid. In this instance its literally him going "liberals are to blame for this, see they can't handle this at all and now they're mad after having people dumped on their land, see how hypocritical they are" (forgive the clear difference in intelligence, I simply cannot dumb down my writing to actually match pcgeek's), while he pretends its liberals being the true "snowflakes" for pointing out how fucked up it was for right wingers to do something like this and then having a governor of a state try to take credit for such pathetically petty behavior. This is the political equivalent to a governor admitting to putting a bag of dogshit on someone's doorstep and lighting it on fire.

Now it seems he's back on just the bog standard idiotic inability to understand how the things he complains about highlight how incredibly fucked up his logic is. He legit seems to believe that liberals are more outraged about these 50 people than the thousands that right wingers are fucking over, when in fact, people are like, wow, so they're already fucking these people over and then they decide to fuck over a small group of them even worse as a publicity stunt? It shows that right wingers like pcgeek do not view these people as fellow human beings. Which is why they demonize them and call them "illegals" nevermind they're probably more lawful and "legal" than your average Republican.

But...its effective because you people keep responding to him. So, yes, plenty of you do sound like clowns, because everyone that continues to respond as though he's ever provided anything resembling an honest argument ever on here are partaking in his circus.
