We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
There are left wing organizations South of the border advising would be immigrants how to ask for asylum and telling them to bring their children to complicate the legal process in their favor. There are associated left wing groups North of the border who are creating demonstrations against this policy and against Trump. The Democrat party is in this up to their neck. This is part invasion and part political dirty tricks to make Trump look bad. They would be OK if Trump reimplemented catch and release but they are overjoyed to have the media and Hollywood crazies dumping on Trump. This is a ploy, a scam to flood the country with illegals. Congress will not do anything that might stem the flow of illegals and their focus seems to be to give those here amnesty which will of course encourage even more illegal immigration. Just look at the glee on the Democrats faces as they squeeze the screws on Trump and simultaneously refuse to participate in congress to fix the problem. The Democrats intend to use this crisis to get more votes and more voters. But someone is going to have to pay the piper. As Nancy Pelosi has already promised if the Democrats get congress back they will increase taxes. Someone has to pay to take care of all these new voters...

Never fear, if they can't get it out of the "Rich", they can always Print more. After all, our dollars are backed-up by the full faith and credit of the USA, and also 9v batteries. BTW, we will all be "Rich" soon, those million-dollar 1,100 sq.ft. ranchers in Los Angeles, coming soon, to your neighborhood.
Oh, and with taxes to match.
I accidentally tapped on the CNN video with the crying kids on it. I couldn’t help but wonder, why are these kids crying “mommy and daddy” in English and not in Spanish? Feels like a lot of coaching going on.
Maybe the recording was done at a supermarket. How do we know it was illegal border-crossers? How do we know it was border agents speaking about the "orchestra" (which, by the way, is something my folks and their siblings would talk when all the cousins started acting up and getting all tantrum-y.).
Why is it that the Flores decision, which I understand is where the "20 days" rule came from, isn't considered by the left as "the law" when other decisions by the courts are.
