Let the war begin if the so choose to start it.
Lock them up.
Need to send in Nikki Haley to deal with them!
America’s enemies on the Left are creating facts on the ground. We need to do the same. Deport illegals. All of them. No exceptions. Then we can debate the “rights” of DACA illegals, the “needs” of self-proclaimed refugee illegals, the contributions of the working illegals who take American jobs from Americans, and the desperation of welfare illegals who just take our tax dollars, or the potential of underage illegals who strain our schools and other government services.
Let’s have all those debates, but let’s do it after the criminal illegals are gone from our country - all of them. And all illegals are, by definition, criminals. “We are a nation of immigrants” and my ancestors were immigrants, but they were legal immigrants. Those in my family tree came here anywhere from 90 to 450 years ago, but none did so in violation of the law.
I love Nikki Haley as our Anbassador to the UN. As governor of SC, she called for removal of the confederate flag.
Hubby turned on the news to get weather, what we saw was the desecration of History. Gen. Forest Statue is also his and his wife’s grave site. All they left was the concrete base. There are laws against grave Desecration.
Memphis is a Dem black owned sewer.
She would agree with the removal of the statues.
Her defense of Israel and the interests of the United States in that den of snakes has been inspiring.
An added plus has been watching how certain nations just don't seem to know how to deal with a feisty woman who speaks the truth, and isn't afraid to rattle their cages.
But what is most delicious is to to see the faces of the Muzzies as she lets them have it with both barrels.
Yes, she did vote to remove the Confederate flag. I disagreed with that.
If you delve into her speeches, her main reasoning is that the United States is what should be preeminent, not the flag of a nation that was defeated over 150 years ago. As a child of Indian parents, and a grateful American, she has the mindset that the US should take a backseat to no one (and she included the Confederate flag in that category).
I disagreed with her on this. I think the Confederate flag has a place, and I cannot stand those who wish to erase history, or to the BLM crowd who wants to find a racist under every rock in order to promote their hateful agenda.
Nor did mine, my Dad, was a 1st Gen. US Born Citizen of Naturalized Italian parents, who came through Ellis Island. WW 2 Veteran, fought 5 major battles under Gen. MacArthur, 503rd Airborne, put the Colors back up on a telegraph pole with a PFC specially to go to the General, then ran a 2nd Flag up, under sniper fire, Bronze Star holder.
The ignorant were still calling him Dago, Wop, Spic. His dad immersed that big family totally in America, they were not allowed to speak anything but English. You didn’t cross Grandpa Joe.
I like you SkyPilot, so we are going to disagree about Nikki Haley. She removed the flag because she was craven. And she opened the door to what happened in Memphis. Have a Merry Christmas.
You are so correct! This is ridiculous, and it makes me think of the Taliban blowing up centuries-old statues in Afghanistan. Should we destroy the concentration camp remnants in Europe, or is it a good thing for people to be able to visit them and reflect on the horrors that happened there? We shouldn't run from our past. We should learn from it.
We are a nation of citizens...
What are Shakespeare’s comedies without the dirty archaic jokes?
I was also viewed her appointment as UN Ambassador with a lot of trepidation because of that action. So far, she has absolutely overwhelmed me by her superior performance in that chamber.
I think there also could be something said for the fact that all this caving on the Confederate flag was a move of appeasement (aka Chamberlain) that only made things worse. The BLM and like minded crowd was only emboldened.
Have a very Merry Christmas as well!
