Patriotism means to stand by the country. ... It is patriotic to support him in so far as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country.” (President Theodore Roosevelt, 1918.)

Good fodder, Tat, but I think back to Thomas Jefferson, one of my fav's, and his belief that society should have a revolution every couple of decades, or so. He might be right!

And I wonder what British history books call our American Patriots, would it be terrorist? Yes, they did things like burn Torries out of their homes, which caused many of them to flee to Canada. And when it comes right down to it, only 1/3 the population was in favor of breaking away from the Crown.

a little food for thought.   And how ya been, Tat, you man of good sense *and* good looks :)

There is already laws about that.  They can claim asylum even on the Mexican side of the border wall as long it is on US territory.  It's part of the reason why people eyeroll when Trump supporters claim the wall will solve all the problems.  It's also why Trump is so desperate to change or ignore asylum laws.

All that may be true, Grom, but the Democrats do absolutely nothing in regards to offering a good, workable solution to a problem that they know is quite bad. Why is that, more politics again...? leaving it all unresolved for purposes of ridiculing Trump for the mess that it all is ??  Hey 2020 is just around the corner, ya know. "Never let a disaster go to waste".

True that.  Well except for all the immigration bills the Democrats passed that Mitch McConnell is sitting on in the Senate.  Perhaps in 2020, if the Democrats get the drivers seat back, we could go back to the low numbers and manageable borders we had under Obama.

Not sure your link is working as intended. I get back to the thread rather than  news article.

I'm sure the new Republican controlled Congress in 2021 won't let that happen without lots of Federal Judges putting a stop to it. :devil:

You really didn't know?

  The 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo between the two nations, "along the deepest channel" (also known as the thalweg)—from its mouth on the Gulf of Mexico a distance of 2,020 kilometers (1,260 mi) to a point just upstream of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez. It then follows an alignment westward overland and it is marked by monuments for a distance of 859 kilometers (534 mi) to the Colorado River, when it reaches its highest elevation at the intersection with the Continental Divide. It then follows the middle of that river toward the north with a distance of 39 kilometers (24 mi), and ultimately follows an alignment overland toward the west and marked by monuments with a distance of 227 kilometers (141 mi) to the Pacific Ocean. -From the Wiki

Our border literally is in the middle of rivers with the treaty expressly forbidding either country from building things that might change that flow.  The rivers also meander so we built our wall inland on our side of the river.  It's why property owners have their own private gates in the walls.

if there is a fence, it would be a violation to go over it, that is all there is to it.

AND the border walls on the east part of that border had to follow the laws concerning putting up fences near rivers so some of the Texas land next to the river is now on the Mexican side of the wall.  Thank Pete Sessions for that one.

Both parties are hypocrits, their goal is to continue the existence of the party at the expense of the country, just like the teamsters work harder to continue their existence than they do to help the workers who belong to their organization.  They are dependent on the big lie that we have a "two party political system".  It is the big lie because our founders did as much as they could at the time to make sure that didn't happen.  It is very easy to keep a large group of people under control when they are at odds with each other and not paying attention to the men behind the curtain.  It is one curtain with two colors and you can choose to pretend like one color is better than the other or you can open your mind, think and pull the curtain back.  (did I get enough mixed metaphors in there for everyone?)
