if you live by the sword you will die by the sword but since our politicians wear suits and have other people wield the knife maybe you can see why they have so many social problems.

That is an outrage! I don't want my hard earned money paying for sex change operations and programs to help drug addicts. If someone wants a sex change operation they need to pay for it themselves! This is such an outrage!

RLP I know you're smart enough to know that some trillion dollar fence isn't going to keep people out. I don't think there's anyone over 12 who hasn't hopped a fence.

Let us put it this way. Few even understand the tax system. Anyone that works and pays taxes seems to think that all of their tax dollars go to feed the poor (food stamps) or welfare benefits. It is hilarious how small minded the average taxpayer is. Ever hear of corporate welfare? Ever hear of bilking US taxpayer... More
