EMERGENCY!
« on: February 14, 2019, 04:57:22 PM »
This is not a drill.

Hopefully Trump can steer this country out of this dire state.

I think the best part is Pelosi warning that the next Dem pres could use this precedent to grab guns. :lol: Go for it.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

Very disappointed, thought this was a thread about the greatest firefighter/EMT show of all time.

I mean, why not? It’s an equally ludicrous premise.

I wouldn't act like the premises are equal. I mean American citizens are actually dying because of Pelosi's emergency. We are living at a higher rate due to Trump's.

First, it isn’t an equally ludicrous premises. The government has an obligation to enforce our borders. The government also has an obligation to not infringe upon constitutional rights. So one action would be in keeping with gov responsibility while the other might be contra (depending upon what they do).

But I was referring to the politics of it. Gun control isn’t as popular with people who actually vote as Dems think (or at least publicly acknowledge). Declaring an emergency to confiscate or significantly reduce access to guns would be an absolute political disaster for the Dems. I’m pretty sure they know that. It’s the emptiest of threats.

I agree with kdub tho, a gun emergency is stupid (well all these political emergencies are stupid). Healthcare or climate change fit the action must better.

The point is not that a gun control emergency wouldn’t be stupid. It would be really stupid!  So would declaring a national emergency to build something we’ve gotten by without for 174 years without much problem.

I'm enjoying the "not much problem" talking point as deadly blue oxy from Mexico claims more victims every day and is the new drug of choice of Mexican Drug Cartels who control vast swaths of the country to the South . . . and as more mass graves are found closer and closer to the border.

Oh and congrats on this new sponsorship liberalization LibDerp Nation . . . let's just give the sex/human traffickers a free run and call it good.

Wall has to come with much technological counter measures as well.   But keep on pointing to studies from policy wonks shoving paper around on their desk who haven't stepped out of their cubicles in months.

Yeah, I don’t think a wall emergency will hold up, but if it does, the next dem president will absolutely declare a climate emergency which is 1000x more legit.

Why would one risk running their drugs across unwalled border sections or putting their drugs on people doing so when it's so easy to run them through the legal points of entry by the truckload?

Freaking rubes believe anything this doink tells you. Really embarrassing.

The policy wonks are definitely unqualified.  Best let super qualified Trump handle it.

Will probably be more effective to stack singles on the border for how much of this wall will actually get built.
