They Need To Pay A Price
by Dave Mindeman

At some point you have to pay a price.

In politics, bad policy is supposed to be corrected. The outcry of the public is supposed to matter. This insane idea of separating children from their parents at the border should have been shut down at the inception. Where were the voices of sanity? Are there any?

Today, it is said that Trump will finally sign an executive order to end this policy. (Although we have not had the actual signature show yet). But it has gone on far longer than anyone would have thought. . . .

Kim Phones Trump
by Dave Mindeman

Headline: Trump says he gave North Korea's Kim his direct number

Trump: Hello?

Kim: Hello Big Donnie. It's me Kim.

Trump: Well, hi, Lego Man, how goes the grind.

Kim: Oh, just doing my thing. Arrested a few people. Executed some deserters. Expanded my gulags. Played some buckets with Rodman. And made everyone watch me eat a seven course meal on State TV.

Trump: Sounds like a full day. I love the way everyone pays so much attention to what you do. They really, really love you.

Kim: . . .

Immigration Fear Mongering
by Dave Mindeman

Immigration policy has always been controversial. But the Trump interpretation of it is patently ludicrous.

The border with Mexico is not being overrun. The Canadians prefer their own country and probably could start taking steps to keep us out.

But Trump continues to try to confuse us. He acts as though all the people crossing our border intend to do us harm. He cites the gang . . .

Freedom Needs Defending - We Need To Act
by Dave Mindeman

Kids ripped away from their parents.

Is this really America anymore? How much more of this are we going to allow? After all, this is being done in our name. The people of the United States are complicit in a massive incarceration of children.

Sounds pretty bad doesn't it. But this President and his Attorney General think this is a viable solution to our immigration problem.

What is even more grotesque about this is that these are not "illegals". They are simply oppressed people looking for safe harbor. They are applying for asylum . . .

"Liberals Don't Know Anything About Guns"
by Dave Mindeman

The gun debate goes on and on. And every time we make some progress, a new obstacle is put into the path.

The latest version of this is that Democrats can't make rational decisions about guns because they are clueless about how they operate and don't know the different nuances of the variations.

Now that statement is not completely wrong. Democrats are not too concerned about how big the bullet hole is or if the bullet can pierce armor or not or whether it fires 15 rounds per minute or hundreds. The bottom line . . .
