    I wondered about how the police at the game reacted. That must have been a bit freaky for them.

    A Newt opinion? Lol
    Y'all dont understand how much trade we do with mexico and canada.
    We should embrace trade with our neighbors, not make enemies of them.
    We actually sell more stuff to Mexicans than we import.
    China on the otherhand needs reigning in.
    Plus, we dont need a higher wall! We need high tech, not a wall people can throw a ladder up on, or shoot drugs over with an air cannon or dig tunnels under. There's literally hundreds of miles of terrain you can't build a wall on due to the tough terrain.
    And who's paying for the wall? Hopefully you can just bill republicans.
    The real problem with drug consumption is big pharmaceutical companies selling opiates indiscriminately to Americans who get hooked.
    We need more drug rehab, we need to stop big pharma from stuffing the pockets of politicans.
    The damn border is buttoned down tight as its ever going to be. A bigger wall wont help. Its America's thirst for drugs thats the problem.

    We did embrace our neighbors, and it worked out better than NAFTA.

    "The real problem with drug consumption is big pharmaceutical companies selling opiates indiscriminately to Americans who get hooked."

    Trump's working on that isn't he.

    The border is tight? :D:D:D

    Trump has decided that E 15 should be sold year round nationwide. It will raise the price of gas, lower gas mileage and increase pollution. It damages car engines when used long term. It takes more energy to make a gallon than it produces when burned. It will push up the price of other corn products. But it will get out the farm vote and to Trump, that is all that matters.

    Hope he's not doing it for votes. I saw that last night and had a WTF moment. I bet the Presidential limo doesn't use Gasohol. He doesn't drive much.

    Ethanol was only added to gas for the farm vote.

    If none of them make it through why do they keep trying in such large/HUGE numbers? Half still make it through and that outrageous wall cost isn't much more than than a years budget for border security, let alone the criminal costs and state costs for medical care, education, and other welfare type costs that they seem to be 'entitled' to.
    Building the wall..........as much of it that is workable, would reduce the cost of border security, so that has to be taken into account also.
    ..and about climbing the walls with ladders, do ya really think they are going to carry ladders across the desert? :D Better off using a Bat Rope doncha think? :D

    The cost of the wall is severely underestimated to begin with.

    Trump wants to go back to "stop and frisk" Can no one read?

    If currently popular scientific theories and hypotheses about the Earth's climate at different times over the course of its existence are correct (and they very well may not be), then:

    1. From the time the Earth was formed (when it was purportedly covered with molten lava) until now, the Earth has cooled.

    2. Around 650 million years ago, during the "Snowball Earth" period, the Earth was believed to have been covered in ice from pole to pole. Since that time, the Earth has warmed.

    3. During the time of the dinosaurs, which spanned around 180 million years until about 65 million years ago, temperatures were largely warmer. So, since that time, the Earth has cooled.

    4. Since the last ice age (around 12-20 thousand years ago), the Earth has warmed.

    5. Since the Medieval Warming Period (around 800–1300 AD), when the Vikings were the terror of Europe and Greenland was actually green, the Earth has cooled.

    6. Since the mini-ice age (around 1350-1850 AD), when the glaciers advanced, crop failures increased, deaths from epidemics and plague were common and Washington crossed an ice-choked Delaware river, the Earth has warmed.

    7. Since around 1995, the Earth climate has stayed pretty flat and maybe even cooled a little bit.

    Of course there are many other instances of cyclical climatic periods such as the ones above that could be added to this list. But the point is that the Earth's climate has always been in a state of change. It always has, and it always will. So no one should be surprised to discover that the Earth's climate continues to change at the present time.

    Clearly, climate change is normal and natural on the planet Earth.

    so explain to me how dinosaurs just magically showed up on the newly melted earth, plus humans.

    Whats that got to do with illegal immigration and the dumb border wall that AMERICANS are going to pay for!!! Suddenly it's all OK for U>S> citizens to pay for the wall when Trump said Mexico was going to pay for it? In case ya didn't notice the GOP has bankrupted our country with stupid wars we cannot win, tax breaks for billionaires and now I have to pay for a new F'ing wall. There's already a f'ing wall there. Oh, build it higher they say, it will be better. LMFAO

    Kavanaugh comes clean about his high school and college years......

    "I spent the last two years of high school in a daze, locking away the
    questions that life seemed insistent on imposing. I kept playing
    basketball, attended classes sparingly, drank beer heavily, and tried drugs
    enthusiastically. I discovered that it didn't make any difference if you
    smoked reefer in a white class mates sparkling new van, or in the dorm
    room with some "brother" you'd met down at the gym, or with a couple of Hawaiian kids who had dropped out of school and now spent most of
    their time looking for an excuse to brawl."





    Just kidding....That's from Obama's book describing HIS high school and
    college days.

    Double Standard Nowadays?
