    So far, there are two that I've noticed. First, he's backed off a full repeal of zerocare. Today, he's backed off from a special prosecutor for the bitcherly affairs. Anyone seen anything else that will cause regrets?

    The Wall, Tax Cuts, The Illegal Issue, The Security from Radical Islam Issue, pretty much all the ice cream he promised when a candidate...

    I'm hoping he has lightened up on his campaign issues so the media and the rioting morons will back off until he get in. Once in, back to what he said and then get the investigation going on the Clintons.

    I think it's important to give him a chance to get into the office before I criticize his decisions.

    Not great choices either one. But I'll take the used car salesman over that any day. Remember, we're only 6 days into this thing. Already there are truckloads of speculation about how Trump's going to do this, and not do that. Since people seem to be so sure of themselves when it comes to predicting the future, I would ask to why they aren't rich since they would already have known what the best stock picks were.

    It will be two months before he actually takes office. Id like to see him get a chance. The talking heads and speculation has been dead wrong up to this point. Time will tell.

    Let's see...
    The corporate media, George Soros, lobbyists and special interest groups, and every other crooked globalist scumbag are hard at work keeping the riots going --and they expect results before he even sets foot on the podium to take the oath of office.

    It's obviously an attempt to obtain talking points for the media to further gouge at Trump and stir the pot. They want a violent revolt, they want civil unrest, and they want to be able to say, "See, you should have elected Clinton!"

    But, that's not what they will get. Who knows what Trump has up his sleeve. I do know he will be severely limited, and at every turn he will find pitfalls and traps set for him, and that's even with both Houses in line. There are so many unknowns right now, and we can only speculate. He might only be trying to placate the media and not take the same hard line because he has already won and he isn't even in the position to do anything yet. And, he might also really be going back on his word, too.

    It's not like we've ever had a President-Elect ever do that before, right? [sarc1]

    The questions that are on my mind many skeletons are in his closet? and What will his cabinet look like?
    This will determine the extent of what happens more than anything else, in my opinion.

    While Trump is preferable to Clinton by far, that doesn't mean he's the best thing since sliced cheese. That's the beauty of our system of government. It's not a one-man band although 0bama tried to make it such.

    Hopefully more will take notice to the fact that they always try to make people believe the POTUS is the "most powerful man in the free world" and one step from royalty. We've seen it with George Bush and the "resplendent" inauguration, the first black folks to take the "throne", fashionable wear by fancy named clothiers, the works. They won't stop now, either.

    I suspect he's been advised to calm the storm, Get the rioters off the streets for the time being type of deal.

    Oh, he's not the savior people think he is. Well, he's the savior some people expect him to be --but not the people one may imagine.

    Nothing has changed. Yet, still...there are changes.

    I will give this some more time before I go on the full "conspiracy" mode, reserved for the tinfoil hat section, naturally. You know, where we keep the painful truth. Right now, this is just a harmless FOX broadcast.

    Well, I don't think it is possible anyway to actually build a physical wall across our entire southern border. When I think of a 'wall' I think of whatever is necessary to keep it physically secure. In some cases this could actually be a wall or fence or minefields or hungry alligators. Whatever it takes...

    These guys were doing well enough until amnesty rolled around and the feds got involved.

    I like the Claymore idea. Cheaper than a wall. Coyotes and other local wildlife will take care of the cleanup. When enough of them get chopped up, they'll eventually figure out that it's best to do this legally.

    The United States has 5,525 miles of border with Canada and 1,989 miles with Mexico. Our maritime border includes 95,000 miles of shoreline. Each year, more than 500 million people cross the borders into the United States, some 330 million of whom are non-citizens.

    The Israeli West Bank barrier is under 500 miles in length. Israeli Egypt border barrier is another ~150 miles. Some 650 miles. Or just about 1/3 of what the US needs to build. But they did build it and in under 4 years.

    The new US/Mexico barrier needs to have defense in depth. No welfare for non-citizens, no free medical care for non-citizens. No jobs for non-citizens and heavy fines for anyone caught employing illegals. No free pass for Cubans - sorry.
    Suspend all immigration for two years. Period. (Please - no whining, see how this set of issues is handled in Mexico or even a 1st world country - like Japan.)

    Advertise in all foreign countries and over shortwave - just like the Gov't of Oz - we will not take you in!
    long overdue for the US.

    With a Nation many, many trillions in debt, we can no longer afford to be the world's sugar daddy.
    We are not heartless - send some funds to help build and maintain camps - in their own country - for folks displaced.
    No more refugee resettlement. Period. Help them live at home - their home.

    Agree to take immigrants into the US that -
    **have skills we need.
    **share a common culture with the US
    **are banned from all forms of public support/welfare other than English classes. Private charity, using private money can do as they wish to support recent immigrants. This so long as the immigrants are in the US legally.
    **Limit the number of folks allowed in each year.
    **End the family chain craziness, where one family member can import the entire tribe.
    **End the silliness of 'anchor babies' - do this thru a true court case to ensure it is both Constitutional and a matter of established case law.

    Before you cast stones, look at US immigration law and history. This is nothing more than rolling back the rot in the law that benefits a tiny few of the rich in the US at the expense to and of the rest of us. Ike was right...

    Will it be difficult? Yes. Will a barrier stop the flow of drugs? Likely not. Too much demand, but that is another topic altogether.

    flame away....

    Racist :mad: :cry:


    It is sound. We shall see what the future holds. The biggest problem with any of this is, the next time a bleedingheart is "elected", *poof*, out the window. That's if any of this is ever implemented.
