Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
In order for you to put idiots in office, you'll need a supply of idiots to vote them in. Sadly, the new face of the Democratic party seems to have a cache of them being used successfully, considering how many we have representing us in Washington. A degree in logic isn't needed to understand what is going on that caused the partial shutdown of government.
The other day, I witnessed a kitchen helper trying to empty a wide mouth container of its contents into a narrow necked receptacle. The contents spewed all over the floor. When handed a funnel, this inept worker was able to fill it with nary a loss of a drop.
Our southern border is like that wide mouth container, uncontrollable. A substantial barrier will act like that funnel, directing the flow in a controllable manner, able to filter undesirables.
The stalemate is due to too many insincere individuals who falsely want a secured border while advocating open borders, claiming diversity is good. Diversity is good only when it adds to, not swallows our American and Judeo/Christian values. A large portion of today's so called emigrants are not the same as the ones, like my parents and yours, who passed through the gates of Ellis Island. Many do not want to assimilate into our culture, but demand we accept and adopt theirs. They suck up whatever they can get right away before they will give anything in return, except their middle finger. Many want in to do us harm; 1993 World Trade Center bombing, 9/11, Boston Marathon bombing, etc. and many that have been thwarted.
The President stayed in town over the holiday, waiting to have dialogue with any Democrat, with no avail to get 800,000 government workers back to work, while the Left, left on vacation. Then went to Puerto Rico to be entertained by a hundred
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to divert the President from advising the country the "State of the Nation" and shutting the door on 'Angel Mothers" who lost their children to illegal intruders before trying to hop on a plane for a week of P.R. and photo ops while the idle government workers are wondering how they will pay the rent or feed their family without a paycheck.
You don't leave the roast in the oven to go do something else.
