Jesse Jackson is just jealous.
It is insane to think people are after you, ... Unless they are.
Last time I checked, it was "with the advice and consent of the Senate," so the writer might be correct.

Wow, ... What could go wrong?
Just so you know, ...
In the '80s, one of the proposed ways to prevent the soviet union from attacking Europe was to launch, basically, crowbars into space. The crowbars would then reenter the Earth's atmosphere, at hundreds of miles an hour, then hit a tank, runway, factory, or other military asset, destroying the target.
I like former President Bush; he can be classy.
He, like many, fail to understand continually compromising will lead to the destruction of our country.
We have Nuclear Power, Solar Power, Coal Power, and Gas Power.
Can you say, ...
What do you get when a government takes peoples firearms away then reduce the number of police officers?

I hate to tell you folks, ...
Those Mexican, Central Americans, Africans, Russians, and all those other illegal immigrants coming to our country, they live in Hell, a Socialist, Totalitarian, Religious, Crime-ridden Hell made by their leaders.
A Hell that some representatives of this country wish to expand, to our country.
Let me see, ..
The people are poor and oppressed.
The government subsidizes the cost of an item.
The item cost more in a neighboring country.
The government wonders why there is a shortage.
"We will need more politicians who fight."
"... it also will determine if China will be a pillar of global growth—or a threat to the world’s financial stability."
"he's a terrorist"
"... the American people will be shocked to know that criminals still don’t like to follow gun laws."

A majority of the public actually does believe that the boundary-in-question with Mexico ought to be recognized in the way that normal nations recognize normal national boundaries: namely, that they are barriers to entry, and that rational procedures must be followed to go from one side to the other.
