Of course bringing the whole family here illegally to endure slum living, low-skill/low-wage labor, or government dependency is an act of love. How could you think otherwise? Moreover, the Democrat Party needs new voters, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce needs cheap nannies, gardeners, and grape-pickers; so opposing illegal immigration is unpatriotic. :-)
A cheaper and equally caring approach would be to declare that the United States comprises the whole world and send out driver's license applications, welfare forms, and Democrat voter-registration materials to everyone on the planet. Then we could start collecting taxes from the millions who have more than they need.
No more Bushes. No more Clintons, Kennedys, Daleys, Cuomos, Browns, or Rockefelellers. No more dynasties. Leave hereditary rule to North Korea and the U.K.
A country that can't get past sentimental blabber, political machinations, or cynical manipulation by the self-interested will never have a sensible immigration policy. A country without an immigration policy of some kind, sensible or not, has no real borders. A country without real borders isn't a real country; it's an area.
The Democrat establishment has been atheist or anti-theist for quite some time. The encouraging news is that it represents rank-and-file Democrats about as well as the GOP establishment represents Republicans living in flyover country. The discouraging news is that rank-and-file Democrats let the lunatics take over their party. The worse news is that after decades of worseniing corruption, insanity, and ruin, Democrats continue to support establishment candidates and ideas.
Some night after the supporters and the reporters have left, BLM will be back in greater numbers with better preparation. Or maybe Cliven Bundy will die in a single-vehicle accident. Anyone who believes that this incident or the larger conflict has ended is dreaming.

Going On a Drone Hunt

1. Anwar al-Awlaki was a scumbag who served as "spiritual" advisor to MAJ Nidal Hasan, three of the 9/11 hijackers, and a number of other murderers. He's as innocent as the blind sheik. Having said that, I hasten to add that killing an American citizen (and his 16-year-old son) was a dangerous and wildly unconstitutional act. 2. Official approval for drone-hunting is a poetic touch, but not necessary. In fact, it sets another bad precedent by suggesting that we need government permission to protect ourselves and our privacy. If I found a tap on my phone, I wouldn't need anyone's leave to rip it out. If I find a drone looking into a second-story window, I dont' need anyone's leave to blow it out of the air. After all, I don't know whose it is or what it's doing. There are drones the size of hummingbirds now. Swatting one of those is tantamount to taking down an airliner? I don't think so. Now if the federal government made the things large enough to bear clear identification markings and loud enough to be heard, it might have a prosthetic leg to stand on in court. But I'd shoot 'em down anyway.
Follow the money. Clinton inexplicably created the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, locking up 1.7 million acres, a trillion dollars' worth of low-sulfur (that is, low-pollution) coal, and large amounts of uranium, oil, and natural gas. This allowed the Lippo Group, a Chinese-entangled Indonesian company behind many illegal foreign contributions to his presidential campaigns, to profit handsomely from the low-sulfur oal in South Kalimantan, Borneo. (Clinton, an advocate of multipolarity like Obama, also gave China advanced missile technology and specs on suitcase nukes in exchange for contributions—and probably had Ron Brown killed to hush up the scandal.) If an interested journalist looked long enough, he'd almost certainly find Chinese money in Harry Reid's pocket. I figure that the death of Michael Hastings in an. . .um. . .unfortunate single-car crash leaves us with maybe 10 reporters who might actually bother to investigate.
"In Utah, the federal government has been attempting to reduce cattle grazing in order to protect wild horses." Mustangs (repatriated native wildlife, by the way) are a smokescreen. BLM has systematically emptied millions of acres of herd management areas created by law in 1971, and it has overseen the elimination of unknown, but very large, numbers of mustangs. It's hard to know what those thugs are really up to, but preserving mustangs isn't on the list.
RiffRaff: I'm afraid that engaging this one isn't going to accomplish a lot. Evidently he/she is either 14 or smoking something or both. I hear a Red Sox game and a beer calling my name, so I'm outta here. Have a good evening, one and all.
Those strings of letters, numbers, and punctuation marks are called posts. Say it with me. . .POSTS. People (PEE • pul) write posts, but don't really appear in this forum. So what have we learned? Right. People are not posts, and posts are not people. Very good. Now go play in heavy traffic till dinnertime.
