I think half a brain is being very kind, for both of them.

Waters thought that Russia had invaded Korea, and Pelosi thought that the President's name is "Bush".

But both of them look like Einstein compared to Sheila Jackson Lee, who is actually incomprehensible: Sheila Jackson Lee Identifies Homicide As Leading Cause Of Murders - The Habanero of Texas.

Re: America: A Failing Marriage

Sheila Jackson Lee will probably be offered a honorary doctorate from Berkeley for her analysis. I've always said the biggest cause of body damage to motor vehicles were collisions and nobody thinks I'd be a good Democratic representative.

If you don't embody controversy, what you say will become just another part of the media driven culture of stifling thought and debate about issues.

We know that his term will end. We know this. We know it and climate change will end. Climate change and the end of his term are what we know. We have spent many years and much money investigating presidential terms ending. They do end. We all know this. So, lets wait for climate change and the end of his term. Those will happen. I know it. You know it. We all know it..................................

If you get away from these sites dominated by the left wing agenda, the media, open border and new world order folks, and people who take John Lennon's "Imagine" a little to literally, you ain't gonna find a lot remaining who really care if Trump pisses off a few illegal aliens and people from countries that breed and quietly (or openly) sanction terrorist. I don't. The prima facie evidence is that Trump is the President of the U.S. and not caretaker of the globe and he apparently believes, or would have us believe, that to balance the scales with the rest of the world, we need a little more added to, rather than subtracted from, our side of the scales. And that's alright by me. The Republican's know they'd commit political suicide to try to impeach Trump. There probably would be a civil war.
Its like the election my man; there are Trump supporters camouflaged in landscape. They don't get out hooping and hollering and destroying property. They just wait til the time is right and they'll vote your azz in or out of office.
Well Vlad I am hoping for the best But remember at the beginning of the primaries no Republican would get near Trump.

As soon as things go off the rails they will bail and then all bets are off.

Re: America: A Failing Marriage

55, if you look at predictions about Trump's demise, beginning with his announcement as a candidate, they've been consistently wrong. Although a lot of folks want to see Trump hung out to dry, if youre honest (not you specifically) how did the Democrats looks gasping, booing, and negatively gesturing when Trump mentioned deporting illegal aliens who are thugs and criminals? (and you know when he sez "criminals" he doesn't mean Isabella who crossed to border illegally and works at Cool Kids Daycare.)

If you don't embody controversy, what you say will become just another part of the media driven culture of stifling thought and debate about issues.

About as foolish as the Republicans looked when they spent 8 years wailing and gnashing their teeth over Obama taking their guns.

Actually, I thought the birthers looked more foolish. But what's your thoughts on the Dems moaning and giving a thumbs down on deporting felonious illegal aliens? Good idea or bad idea to ship out illegals that committed felony crimes?

I don't have a problem with deporting people who are convicted of crimes. At least we aren't paying for their incarceration. However, they should be tried and convicted before sentencing them to deportation. But that wasn't your original question. The whole thing is political theatre and like it or not, it worked for the GOP, and it will probably work for the Dems as well.

Re: America: A Failing Marriage

My question was, "if youre honest (not you specifically) how did the Democrats look gasping, booing, and negatively gesturing when Trump mentioned deporting illegal aliens who are thugs and criminals?" But another, why shouldn't those reacting in a manner that apparently rejects the idea of deporting the criminals, be judged as supporting these criminals over our own citizens?

Re: America: A Failing Marriage

I think almost everyone agrees with deporting violent criminals.

Where things get tricky is in interpreting what will actually happen. Recently there have been a lot of stories of ICE deporting non-violent criminals, and even illegals with no criminal record, except being illegal. There have been a lot more cases of strange questioning at the border. There are plans to monitor illegal immigrant crime separately. I think the concern is not about deporting violent criminals but of broad over-reach when that is accurately implemented.

In the same way the transgender questions really have nothing to do with bathrooms and everything to do with changing the way society views gender.

In NE Florida we had a representative, Corrine Brown. She made Sheila Jackson Lee look like a genius.

I say "had" because she went down in flames this past election after being in office since 1993. She is currently under indictment by the feds for corruption and money laundering.

No one said they shouldn't be judged. But what I am telling you is that it is political theatre. The scare tactic that "Bammy is out to take our guns" resonated with enough non-thinkers to generate a GOP majority. The same "no deportations" tripe will resonate with those non-thinking Democratic voters enough to generate future Democratic majorities. In the meantime, NOTHING will really change, except the flow of dollars from one party to the other.

Either there is a large group of citizens which actually does not agree with deporting them, or there is a large group of citizens who do not understand what Trump is saying. Or both. Fake news throughout the campaign and continuing today appears to have the agenda of creating widespread misunderstanding on this issue and to gin up the divisiveness (Racist Trump hates Mexicans!).

I have zero problem with our government deporting someone who simply came across the border illegally. They have no right whatsoever to remain here. I have no problem with them asking any kind of questions they like of any person crossing the border, whether or not they are a citizen. The border exists to protect us from undesirables from entering the country.

Now I also don't think it is an efficient use of government resources to hunt down and deport every illegal alien who happens to be an otherwise lawful person and who is providing financially for themselves.

I see no overreach in monitoring crimes committed by illegals. Not when we have sanctuary cities who are harboring these violent criminals.

Are you advocating a borderless world, a world with no countries? Are you advocating for the right to enter this country without first getting our approval? Are you advocating for a greater right to come here than the right of the citizens already here to determine who is allowed to enter?
