    "The Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border..."
    How else is he going to catch up with Obama's deportation numbers? Sheesh.

    Related question---the President is the Commander in Chief of the military, right? So, does Trump have a uniform?
    God, I hope he shows up somewhere in a military uniform.

    The POTUS gets magic underwear, similar to LDS.

    Sounds like a good start. I support these actions. Maybe add some drones to the mix to help find 'em and round 'em up!

    statistically, the people in question are far more likely to be my friends, neighbors and customers than they are to pose any threat to me. In fact, this crackdown is already having an impact on the ability of local farmers (we are still a heavily agricultural region) to hire workers, and it will only get worse as we move into warmer weather. Even those here legally are keeping low profiles in case they somehow draw attention to relatives who are undocumented.

    I would imagine this trial balloon gets popped fairly quickly.

    Legal or illegal?

    You guys actually believe Trump is gonna start rounding up people based on their ethnicity? Who do you think he is, FDR?
  • swizzswizz Senior Member Posts: 2,559 Senior Member
    Well yeah, the media also reported that he's gonna be herding them into boxcars with Dobermans.

    ha. Nice.

    Way too much hysteria right now. An easy tell: the promiscuous use of the term "fascist."
  • ricinusricinus Senior Member Posts: 6,214 Senior Member
    Hysteria is right. But every time it starts to calm down, another **** storm develops. You pretty much have to fact check everything now..

    Promiscuous use of the snowflake label is definitely a problem. Its just hysterical. Its almost like some guys here are White House advisors!

    I am going to do something out of character here and acknowledge that in the past you had said the same thing about the promiscuous use of the term "Socialist."
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    So do we think McCain is being promiscuous?

    Both terms are overused.
  • ricinusricinus Senior Member Posts: 6,214 Senior Member
    Promiscuously and also erroneously..

    I read McCains speech in Munich. It was really good. He said a lot that needs to be said.
  • swizzswizz Senior Member Posts: 2,559 Senior Member
    McCain is a grudge holder in regard to the "hero" insult, plain as day. He should get over it and stop being a total **** hat.
    Remember when he chose Sara Palin to be his running mate? Yeah, he's real smart dude. Follow his queue!

    The man spent years being tortured daily, Trump went to an academy for wealthy brats that wanted to play soldier. He should never get over it.

    I am not sure Mike Pence is any smarter. Speaking of **** hats, seems Trump can't even take a little joking on Saturday Night Live without crying like a 3 year old.

    When Trump supporters start wearing brown shirts at rallies El Caudillo will explain that it is only to express their love for "people of color", as they like to be called. The next step will be to hold the rallies in yuge stadiums, with supporters marching in and spotlights raised vertically like Roman or Greek columns...

    No! Wait!
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.
