A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel.—-Robert Frost

Being an open spaces kind of guy, I don’t relish looking at a wall, nor even city lights. But, I am a pragmatist when all else fails. I prefer a Wall was not necessary. But a Wall is necessary, as my neighbors’s fences are necessary to keep keep his livestock safe from the predators without. Conversely, my fences keep my dogs from trespassing upon another’s property and going after his livestock. There is a harmony to it. Good fences indeed make good neighbors, be it physical barriers or setting boundaries with others who cross certain lines at home, at work, and at play.

I find it peculiar that the Lefties love to point to Reagen’s onset of late life dementia as a vehicle to savage his policies, character, and mental fitness while he was in office, yet the same Lefties always point to Reagen’s farewell address ‘A Shining City on the Hill’ to use as fuel for their political agenda. Lest we forget, the Shining City on the Hill had walls and doors. Please enter through the doors if you want to get inside the walls.

“[I]n my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.”

Back to Frost’s poem, the Dems have yet to state why the Wall is immoral. Saying “I don’t like walls” is not good enough. Convince me.

LOL. One news outlet called Trumply’s TV address a “wet fart.” Ouch. What struck most was Stephen Miller’s obsession with torture and killing, i.e. hammers and dismemberment. Which brought to mind...if only there’d been a concrete/steel slat/beaded curtain wall around the Saudi Embassy in Turkey, Khashoggi would have been prevented his bone saw massacre. LOL.

Tom Sullivan is doing the speeches of Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer. All making hay about how we have to stop illegal aliens and build a wall. You cannot make this stuff up.

So that's a "yes" then! OK….good to know!

Tricky McClean

Good to know what? That you’re a state employee who lives in Folsom, a barky lapdog eating at the delicious taxpayer-funded buffet? Look, we get that you’re simpatico with Ben Emery re. your dualing colonic sympathies. As you should, and I hope and pray that you both are doin well post therapy.
But for God’s sake man, get a spine when it comes to your personal convictions! Quit your state job if you hate the gov’t tit so very much.

Hi Michael…..!

Ya know this is something that I've wrestled with. If you could somehow assure me that the position would go away entirely I would seriously consider punching out! As it stands now though I might as well receive the money instead of some other schmoe who thinks he's saving the world. I like to think you're getting a reasonable return on your dollar…..I was demoted once for complaining that what we were doing (rather , the way we were doing it) was ridiculous and cost far too much time and money! This….needless to say was not well received. Ironically my internal demotion placed me in a new role where the very thing I was chastised for suggesting was done routinely. As you can well imagine I found this endlessly amusing.

How's office networking these days……still rewarding I trust?

Not Michael (??) but anyway...
This taxpayer appreciates your oversight. Anything you can do to stifle Leviathan is all to the good 🧡

…and why the hate for my rapprochement with Ben? No credit for personal growth over a shared mal
