    Oh, I said *nothing* about ignoring the obvious.

    Unfort., govt isn’t doing its job on multiple fronts (be that State > Fed); calling the cops\ICE+ just begets a revolving door effect (”Oh, you *promise* to come back to trail? Well, we’ll let you out until then.”). And, no We shouldn’t stop doing our due diligence.

    That doesn’t mean govt gets (nor has the authority) to saddle BIZ with the attempt to clean up the mess for ‘em (while they wash their hands of the matter). And, if biz doesn’t do a ‘good enough job’, get fined out the wazoo.

    You get govt out of the things it shallNOT be doing (welfare, sanctuary cities, etc.) and back to that which it SHALL (protecting Citizen Rights\border) and the illegal problem mostly disappears.

    I’m all for a wall, if need be. But, it should be the FINAL task in a long laundry list, instead of burdening (or crushing) everyone else.

    ...but the US depends on a lot of the world to handle the production and service of its economy, and buy its debt. It would be very easy for our “partners” to use UN influence to restructure their relationships with us to be more favorable to their side, and we’d have little to no recourse...

    Well, SH!T, sign me up, FRiend. One more nail in the fiat Federal Reserve? America having to, again, make it ‘Made in the USA’?

    Exactly what were the downsides again?

    Too many feel gooders today apparently have ZERO comprehension skills ref. “infringed”. Notice the following, “shall have the right to keep and bear arms, and they need no permission or regulation of law for that purpose.” Kinda clear to me. Makes you wonder when all this garbage started. Was it the roaring 30’s when criminals put a bad light on gun owners? Was it back as far as some of the old west towns that “forbade” cowpokes from bearing their arms inside the city limits? Just one of the reasons I don’t care for “needing” a “permit” from the state to be armed. You can bet a progressive scotus appointment would not lean in the direction of the bill of rights.

    30’s? IIRC, it was the uppity Negro whom started it all: Free Man = 2nd A. protections. DEMs couldn’t (still can’t) allow THAT to happen...

    Right up there w/ those uppity Jazz musicians and their reefer madness (”Where all the white women at?”)

    What part of the Constitution do you believe is being violated?

    Private banks were issuing their own money prior to 1913. They even printed their own currency. This was called ‘bank money’ or ‘credit money’ during the gold standard era to differentiate it from money backed by gold. JP Morgan, America’s largest banker, used to perform most of the functions of the Fed without any government oversight. He was a driving force behind the creation of the Fed because by 1907 the US banking system had grown too large for a private banker to backstop during a crisis.

    You mean, what part(s) ISN’T\AREN’T??

    Is banking/finance one of those areas where their limited Congressional power, given over to a 3rd-party\bureaucracy (usually with an expansion of said power(s)), somehow still retains Constitutional muster?

    Your contending that a NON-Fed. entity is\was somehow BETTER able to handle functions of Fed. govt instead...so, what’s the big whoop??

    Borrow $$, mint actual $$, define the weights\measures thereof?? Just what *ARE* those ‘other functions’ better handled that the Fed. Govt (Putting aside, for now, the idea that Congress HAS the ability to hand over said functions).

    If the players continue this nonsense, I believe a movement will start to boycott the NFL on television, which is where its real money is made.

    Time will tell. Unfort., I’m of the mind, the masses won’t be turning off the game, requesting refunds, cancelling their sports packages, etc. anytime in the near future.

    ???

    Did B\C even ATTEMPT to win the war (’hearts and minds’)? They sure didn’t do SH!T to protect the homeland (open borders). Hell they created and championed MORE Fascism and Federalism (DHS, TSA, NSA), casting each Citizen as a potential threat instead of stemming the ‘welcome mat’ flow from the M.E.

    So, excuse me if I fail to stand-up and cheer for the last 15yrs. of do-NOTHING from D.C. and their cabal; while they place further burden upon the FREE peoples of this once Republic.

    Liability standards? Just what liability does the product inherently contain?

    Can one sue for the black thumb\medical bill hit by a hammer?
    Is the vehicle responsible for the rear-end collision?

    Far as I understand, most firearms have near lifetime warranties. Bad spring, frame, etc.? Send it in and it’ll ‘magically’ come back in pristine fashion.

    Say, AG Headcase, can you define INFRINGE? Please contrast with GOVT disallowing the sale\ownership of a tool\product.

    Yes, we all know the pretzel logic they wish to utilize to whittle down our INALIENABLE Rights.
