  1. ...a discussion ongoing at the Gonzo household... If the orders are NOT lawful, is it up to individual Border Patrol agents to resist, or is there a legislative option?
  2. The interpretation of the law was changed to include ALL criminal activity. Cops make such decisions every day... right now, there's a young trooper out on 95 working that question with every car that goes by. I maintain that the order to enforce crimes that are MISDEMEANORS in such draconian fashion is wrong, is an unlawful order, and that those enforcing it as such, including Trump, are guilty of human rights violations.
  3. There's an election ongoing. 'Just sayin'...
  4. So you see no difference between what went down under Obama and what is happening now under Trump's orders?
  5. It's not Obama doing it anymore. Take some responsibility for your pols.
  6. Point... It might work with that little hook. You COULD use your real name if you want, or .....
  7. We'd have to use real names... some might find that a problem.
  8. Not to be Captain Obvious, but we've gotta' find another place to hang out.
  9. You inhabit a terrifying corner of teh rwnj alternative betaverse... a dystopia seen through tunnel vision...
  10. The key above is the phrase 'unknown foods'... Kids who eat 'real foods' exclusively will add things to their plate out of curiosity. And no, we didn't keep a stash of 'parent's goodies'. We ate simply and wholesomely, and for a good deal less than expected. Perhaps another factor is 'education', and I don't necessarily mean the college type. My wife and I have always been cooks and gardeners, what might today be called 'foodies'. This basic awareness and curiosity about nutrition and health made more of a difference to our dietary choices than economics. JMHO....
  11. Your point deserves underlining. If kids are raised with junk food, nothing the school ever does will change what the child wants to eat. If raised on proper vittles, they'll want them at school, on the road, etc. We similarly raised our two on 'real' food, habits that they continue into their adulthood today. But the issue (as usual) ultimately resides with the parents.
  12. https://twitter.com/JuliaDavisNews/status/1007615091636953089/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc^tfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailykos.com%2Fstory%2F2018%2F6%2F15%2F1772207%2F-Russia-state-TV-Crimea-is-ours-Trump-is-ours
  13. Let's see... ...the dogs have left, ...the cats are gone, ...no more mice,...and the rats just went over the side. 'Just teh Don and the cockroaches left, and the roaches are looking for the door. MAGA!
  14. Anyone else remember that crossing the border illegally is a misdemeanor? What happened to the notion of 'punishment fitting the crime'? That being said, there is NO EXCUSE for separating little kids from their parents. It's fascist, ugly behavior, and it's shameful.
  15. The United States is a country dominated by grumpy old white men. Instead of yelling at kids to get off their lawn or to turn down the music, they yell at women, immigrants, foreign leaders and anyone else who wants a place at the table. The motivation: to keep the world as it was, when white American men were on top, and everyone else was just grateful for any consideration at all. cont... Consider the past month, starting with grumpy old white man in chief Donald Trump. Over the past week alone, he raged at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him “meek” and “very dishonest and weak”when Trudeau politely (given the circumstances) disagreed with Americans about trade policy. This followed Trump’s suggestion that National Football League players who kneel when the national anthem is played should possibly be deported. You wouldn’t want those African Americans to get any ideas that they shouldn’t get beaten up and shot by the cops, would you? ..................
  16. Your post was your OPINION, correctness of which is entirely subjective. When asked to support your opinion, you attacked. So typical of Trumpists...
  17. Yes, 'reality' bites. ...and cannabis helps... especially with chronic back pain. Do you have a point, or just another attack?
  18. Funny.... I'm white as snow and I don't get 'insulted' by his posts. I'm not sure why you do. Could you explain? Is it his ideas or the fact that he presents them so well?
  19. This is the biggest pile of steaming poultry litter I've seen yet today. Nothing but a personal attack masquerading as an 'astute' observation. Actually, that's about all your posts do.... ever.
  20. ....inch by inch......... step by step.........
  21. Trump and Kim got what they wanted... ....the rest of the world, not so much. But don't Kim and Donald look fabulous together?
  22. Another 'great Trump deal'... Lots of smiles and handshakes, fancy words and pictures, but nothing of substance accomplished. Oh wait..... Trump promised to end war games on the peninsula. Kim promised to 'work at denuclearization'. I guess Lil' Kim did get something of substance. My bad.
