Sharing posts

I used to be able to share posts. How come that was removed?

Dems and The Border

I don't post much, but I have an issue.
I live in Southern California, and when I lived in San Diego, it was clear people were coming over the border with no papers, no I.D., just coming for a better life, whatever that turned out to be. Some used to camp out in the hills near my home, get whatever work they could get during the day, stop in at the Von's market for some dinner, and get back to camp.

It's worse more than ever now. These folks are escaping their dangerous and economy-strapped countries, now with their children.

California has almost 40 million people...more than all of freaking CANADA!

When Democrats talk about this issue, they speak of the caged children, etc. But they have no ideas, no real solutions, at least that I have heard. Are there any?

I know Trump said no more aid to those countries, which is counterproductive to say the least. I know now some Sanctuary Cities may take some refugees (because that's what they are). But then what?

This is a real deal, and I hope the Dems are thinking long and hard about some needed solutions.

Just my 2 cents (I can't even find a cent sign on this phone!)

Don't you wonder

What in the world Gorbachev is thinking? Probably something like, "Gee, I'm sure glad I went through all that with Reagan back in the 80's." Because Putin is just dismantling all of it. And he most likely is not saying anything, because he could be served some strange tasting tea like the ex-spy in England experienced. It's really sad to see this.
