Presidential family ski vacations and golf outings....fully funded.

#2 I think the vacation costs chargable to the First Family are mostly picked up by doners, not the taxpayers (at least not until favors get called in), but that doesn't include the huge increase in taxpayer-funded overhead to provide security, etc. while 'on the road.' Nothing criminal, probably not even unethical, but does not seem like leadership to me. Unless what they are trying to lead us to do is spend lots of money - which may be the case, and is consistent with a lot of other actions as well.

#3 In other words he wants it shut down because local law enforcement tend to want to... enforce the law.
Instead they want to replace them with buearucrats who are more interested in insuring that the proper "race quota's" are not exceeded.

#5 Many on the left favor "open borders." So how is that concept working for us? Maybe the administration's strategy is to weaken the U.S. economy so that it is worse than Mexico's and the flow of illegals reverses. Does this mean that the govmint's Fast and Furious program has stopped and the drug trade, and human slave trade are under control?

#6 ...saving an estimated $17 million...
So you see, it's all about saving $17 million so they can give it away to fat cats, welfare moms and illegal aliens.

#7 Gosh. I really miss the olden days when my father talked of him and his fellow US Soldiers prior to WWII guarding the border with 50 caliber machine gun nests...

#9 Combining a comment from this thread & from a different one on the 'Burg today: -- Nothing criminal, probably not even unethical, but does not seem like leadership to me
-- a culture of decadence and false-imagry whose prominant members make millions.
