    If addressed to me: No, that's a limiting position, it doesn't begin to broach the full situation.

        Why are you asking a question you already know the answer to? False equivalence.

          Precisely! Question the law...empathize upon the law breaker's desperation.

            I'm not talking about someone getting angry or occasionally loosing their temper or even sometimes being wrong or whatever else. The libs on this thread and other like it are certifiably stupid! I mean flat out slobber mouthed, grunting Neanderthals who can barely put a coherent sentence together, never mind make a rational defense of the abject stupidity they claim to believe!

            One idiot suggested that she was fine with a border wall so long as Trump paid for it out of his own pocket! That's laughable because he could easily afford to do it and would probably do it if it were legal (which it isn't) and the same moron who wants Trump to pay for the totally inexpensive border wall is probably just fine with Obama having taken over a 6th of the economy with his fantastically stupid health care debacle, not to mention the 530 million dollars PER YEAR that we all pay to Planned Parenthood!

            You are all dumb as a sack of bricks and would destroy this entire nation if given half a chance. But don't let anything like sound reason persuade you! Go right on ahead feeling your way through your entire existence and when you've emoted your way to trying to start a revolution, you'll find out why we conservatives believe in the right to bear arms.

                Why won't you state what everyone already knows is your answer?

                And it isn't a false equivalence just because you claim it to be.

                Abortion is the taking of an innocent human life. Even you would call it murder under ANY other circumstance.

                  Hmm, has Trump condemned Planned Parenthood? He certainly hasn't enacted laws that would execute homosexuals and the like as even he isn't that dumb to play solely to religious zealots. So, once again, thanks for the vitriolic rant and the projection. If he does end up building a wall it'll be so high as to reflect his own ego and the rank stupidity of fawning dopes.
                  Well this is fun isn't it?

                      There was not vitriol and there was no rant!

                        Hmm... that doesn't sound like a rational defense of your position, Clete.

                        Perhaps she remembers that he pledged to have Mexico pay for it. It may seem strange to that she expects him to take responsibility for his error, but that's the way it used to be in America. Apparently, no longer for some.

                        That's laughable because he could easily afford to do it
                        No, he couldn't.

                        The price tab projected by Trump’s opponents far exceeds previous estimates, which topped out at $21.6 billion. The Democrats’ report is based on extrapolations, not hard data. It says that although the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Patrol have not provided a “reliable cost estimate” for President Trump’s signature campaign promise, the party has reached its projections using information provided by CBP officials, including the Trump administration’s 2017 budget request and 2018 budget proposal.
                        http://time.com/4745350/donald-trump...cost-billions/

                        With an estimated net worth of $3.1 billion on Forbes's list of the world's billionaires, Trump has a fortune that's declined by $400 million in the past year.

                        https://www.townandcountrymag.com/so...ump-net-worth/

                        Not even close.

                        and would probably do it if it were legal (which it isn't)
                        Actually, it is. If he could somehow scrape up the 20 to 70 billion dollars it will cost (depending on whether you believe Trump or his critics), he could donate the wall to the United States, and Congress could accept it.

                        and the same moron who wants Trump to pay for the totally inexpensive border wall
                        Twenty billion here, twenty billion there; it adds up.

                        is probably just fine with Obama having taken over a 6th of the economy with his fantastically stupid health care debacle
                        The favorable rating for ObamaCare has reached its highest level since the law was enacted in 2010, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) poll.

                        The poll finds that 54 percent of the public has a favorable view of the law, compared to 42 percent who have an unfavorable view. That is the highest favorable rating in a KFF poll since it began asking the question in 2010.

                        The rise is driven by independents, the KFF found, with 55 percent now having a favorable view of the law, a significant jump from 48 percent last month. Nearly eight in ten Republicans still have an unfavorable view of the law.

                        Ironically, Trump probably has a lot to do with this; voter approval of Obamacare shot up when Trump tried to repeal it. That's the major reason that he failed.

                        not to mention the 530 million dollars PER YEAR that we all pay to Planned Parenthood!
                        Trump says Planned Parenthood "does some very good work." He has switched back and forth from pro-abortion to pro-life, depending on who he's talking to at the time.

                        You are all dumb as a sack of bricks and would destroy this entire nation if given half a chance.
                        There are many decent conservatives who don't want to destroy America. There are many decent liberals who don't want to destroy America. The problem is, neither of those are running things, now.

                        But don't let anything like sound reason persuade you!
                        See above. Give it some thought. And put your guns away for now. Things might be really messed up, but violence won't make it better.

                                Well, if nothing else you're persistent but you seem to be avoiding the point. Evaluating the evidence IS the point or in your case... entertaining an emotional appeal in lieu of exploring all appropriate considerations.
