POTUS is becoming redundant. May as well hand all the decision making to the lefty judges. Of course unlike the president, they won't bear any of the responsibility when things go wrong.

The lunatics seem to be running the asylum in the US. Dunno why they bothered with the vote. Bit like what GM and the Lords are doing in the UK.

Like taking responsibility for accusing the previous President of wire-tapping, taking responsibility for throwing airports into chaos with a hastily-thought-out order, taking responsibility for bizarre and inaccurate remarks about Sweden, for a vague and contradictory health care plan, for soft-peddling on obvious Russian interference in the election?

 

These "lefty" judges may actually believe in constitutional integrity, rule of law and not presidential whim.

 

It is as easy to label opposition to the President as "lefty" as it is to label his supporters as blind, ignorant simpletons. Once the labels get applied the real discourse gets thrown out and all you have is prejudice parading as argument.

Something going wrong could also imply failure, my point was that a single KIA incurred during the storming of a terrorist enclave is something that may occur during those types of military operations. Casualties are part of military operations and that was my point.

And my point is the buck stops with the guy that ordered the mission - ALWAYS! You don't pass it down the chain when you are Commander in Chief. Leadership and Command 101.

No I think we should allow them to come and they should be very happy living amongst those who really want them, Hawaii, Hollywood, Manhattan, etc. Build housing for them there, whats wrong with that. These people in this camp do not have jobs, but sure can't seem to find a way to pick up the trash. No I would rather they do not move in next to me. Thank you

It is not a camp - that is the whole point, read carefully. This is the aftermath of a music concert, everybody happy to go in and trash the place and expect others to clean up the crap - aka USA attitude towards Middle Eastern refugees. You started this crap and now want everyone except yourselves to be responsible for the cleaning up, take some responsibility.

Cleaning up after a concert is part of your ticket price. The US may have stirred the pot after 911, but saying we started this is a stretch of your imagination, I would prefer that the west stayed out of it completely and let the chips fall where they may.  I think we should have nuked Afghanistan and then apologized to the world while warning that any country knowingly harboring terrorists that are training to strike the US will suffer the same fate.

There are millions of US citizens living below the poverty level, if we can't take care of them then why should we bring others to the mix?

Considering that Trump doesn't give a damn about either set of 'peasants' , your point is moot.

You jest of course , the idea of Trump ever accepting responsibility would be highly amusing if it were not so pathetic.

Except for the fact that by law this is a specified duty of the executive branch. Using your logic, decisions to use military force by the President and congress could be stopped by the court action in a single state because one of its citizens would be inconvenienced or have difficulty getting a Visa for a family member. That is not how the separation of powers between branches of the US government is supposed to work. This will be overturned on appeal.

More chance of getting a blowjob from the pope.

We don't know that yet, I am speaking for the ones who do want to better themselves, there are those who never want to get off the dole and are very happy living at the lower end of living standards, those I don't care about either. My point is why I don't think immigration should be widely allowed when we don't have good jobs for our own citizens who want to move up a little.

You do realise that the US has supported and armed terrorists across the world. It was the arming of the Mujhardeen ( against the Russians) that gave such a boost to Islamic fundamentalism. 

I am pragmatic , politics is a dirty game , very few governments are innocent but some are far more hypocritical than others.

There are plenty of US citizens who have commited terrorist attacks ( in Central and South America , Asia , Africa ) or have aided and funded terrorism. By your logic Washington should be nuked , correct ?

I agree that the US has done some bad stuff, and I think we should just get out of world problems until or unless they come to us. Its kind of like getting in the middle of a domestic quarrel, no good can come of it.  This is about immigration, and I don't think we need any immigrants at this time, sorry check back with us later.

I understand what you are saying but it doesn't add up , I think you have just swallowed the hype without thinking it through. How many immigrants walk into high paid jobs that are desirable to US citizens ?  The answer is very few , and those that do are highly qualified , thats why they got the job !

Fair enough but my beef is with the nonsense you wrote about nuking Afghanistan or any other country that abets terrorism. Do you now accept that you were being ridiculous , given that you have recognised that the US( along with half the rest of the world ) also qualifies for your big bang ?

On the other hand, which side of the border would you want to live in, North or South Korea? or the Berlin Wall in the 50's into the 80's?

You are very wrong on that, many immigrants come to take high tech jobs as they will work for much less. Others like the Mexicans took the roll of union busting in factories and construction sites across the US. Oh yes our excuse was that our own workers want to much money, and are too lazy to work for $8 an hour. With the higher education we have in the US we don't need these "highly qualified" workers from other countries.

No I still think we should have, it would have ended the whole mess I believe. I also highly supported the use of nukes in Japan rather than sacrificing 100,000 american troops to beat them in a conventional way. Sorry thats my stance and I think there would be a lot less dead today had we done it. Just don't elect me president and you should have no worries as the military machine is the primary reason we have these wars anyway, remaking one nuke just wouldn't get it with them. There will be wars and terrorists till the end of mankind no matter what you and I think.
