Closing the Southern border meaning our border with Mexico.

What good does that do if he doesn't close our border with the Gulf of Mexico, our border with the Atlantic Ocean, our border with Canada, and our border with the Pacific Ocean?

I don't know about now,

but when I was at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey in 1963-1964, the teachers I had who would discus it wanted a return of the Czars, not democracy.

I shook my head at that one.

Then I read that some people have never heard of Vice President Biden who has been out of office for less than 2 years.

You do not have to respect Trump.

You don't even have to respect him as CiC. If you don't respect him, just keep your mouth shut. I was practicing with a Captain, she played the flute and I, Sp-5, played the piano. I don't remember what she said, but I said you are inscrutable. A 2nd lieutenant in the next room, told me to watch my language. People join for many reasons. I enjoyed being in the Army. I was planning on making it a career but unfortunately I developed some chemical imbalances in my brain and had to take an honorable discharge.

If Trump is re-elected in 2020,

Mexico will start building a wall on its side and Canada will be doing the same.

The military is not a democracy nor should it be.

Respect the uniform or any officer including the CiC. Reagan spoke at Normandy. Didn't matter if you were a Republican or a Democrat you showed respect and he showed his respect also.

I found it is not North or South, but what part of each you have lived.

I grew up in Roxbury, a part of Boston in the 40s and 50s. About even between Jewish and Black with 3 families both, Ethiopians. Looking back I can't believe I was so naive. I went to the William Lloyd Garrison elementary school and didn't even know that half of my friends were Negroes. They just had darker skin than me. Then we moved to a small town, mostly Catholic, were they hated Jews and Negroes equally. Negroes, a term that was used back then but not by us because I wouldn't know what a Negro was. No problem in the army or at U of MA. No problem in San Fransisco in the 70s living in the Mission District until a gay man was stabbed to death outside my bedroom window, so I moved to the Castro District and even though I am straight, of course I did not have a problem. Moved to Margate FL to take care of my aunts. Many people in my condo complex had aides, mostly Black. I did receive a phone call from one Jewish woman who complained the the Black aides were talking on the catwalks and that they should be made to stay inside. Only problem I could see. Next moved to a small town near Jacksonville NC. White, Brown, Black, Christian, Jew and Muslim. 20 years so far and never heard of or had a problem. On another post the other day I said they even tolerate Democrats. I had not put where I live so someone didn't understand what I meant until I posted my area. Republican Rep. Jones could be dead and still be getting elected.

"It is a barrier from people pouring into the country, from drugs.

I know what he meant to write, but that is not what he wrote.

Woman without her man is nothing.

Woman, without her, man is nothing. Woman, without her man, is nothing.

My contractor, actually my subcontractor,

since it is my property, NC, owners can be the contractor, does not use any type of diagram. He basically eyeballs the job from building a deck to building houses for people. If the job needs documentation to get permits he has someone draw them up for him. He gets the permits and does the jobs without looking at any drawings. Because his work is always of the highest quality at reasonable prices, he has a waiting list. I have been using him for over 20 years without a problem. Some people can just see what needs to be done.
