Let’s get one thing straight. The Southern border detention facilities are like Sandals Resorts compared with concentration/death/labor camps in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia or Communist China.
And anyone who makes such an absurd comparison is a moron, who, in Nazi Germany, would have be deemed too mentally impaired to continue living. For the good of society they would have been euthanized.
Regarding the Southern border, Rush Limbaugh had a great point just yesterday, as to why the dems are hitting the conditions at these detention centers so hard. It’s because they can no longer talk about their other favorite topic – the plight of the homeless.
During both the Reagan and Bush presidencies, the left lamented regularly about the homeless situation.
Ronald Reagan was constantly blamed for American homelessness. He increased spending, “through the escalating military budget, all the while slashing funds for domestic programs that assisted working class Americans, particularly the poor.”
Decades later, Reagan was still being blamed. read more

This one’s going to feel like a real bummer, but I’ll bet I’m not the only one thinking this:
Has the grand experiment called the United States of America run its course – the idea that a country, a people can rule itself? That a true representative Republic could be formed and withstand the test of time?
Well, I’m fast becoming convinced that man’s natural state is not one of freedom and liberty. It is becoming evident that the natural state of most humans is servitude and sloth.
It seems more and more Americans at least appear to be satisfied with the meager existence offered up by their masters in government. It seems that rugged American spirit has been replaced with a want to be cared for.
It may not be most, but certainly enough Americans are satisfied with the direction our country is heading. There appear to be enough citizens that are okay with the imperial nature of our current government, as demonstrated by the tyrants which they elect, year after year.
But what of the rest of us? We can’t all move to Belize. What do we do? What do we do when “our party” gives up and passes a “clean” debt ceiling bill without even a whisper of a fight?
Any reasonable citizen should be very worried when a sitting Supreme Court justice, Antonin Scalia, is convinced the concentration camps are likely in our future. read more
