Rand Paul: ´We don´t have money to
spend´ for Trump´s border wall

The Hill, by Brett Samuels

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 1/11/2018 9:14:15 AM

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that while he supports additional barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border, he believes some of the estimated costs for President Trump’s border wall are too high to justify. "I remain a fiscal conservative, even on the wall, so I’m not excited about spending $20, $30, $40 billion on a wall. I’m still a believer that we don’t have money to spend. We’re $700 billion in the hole,” Paul said on CNN.  “And while I will vote for money for barriers, I’m not voting for $40 billion for barriers,” Paul added.  A report last week detailed Trump’s

I don’t really care about whether little Rand finds it exciting or not. We need the wall. The expense has been justified. And there are still ways to get Mexico and any country to which remittances are wired by their citizens living here to pay for the wall.

Somebody please tell Rand that perhaps they could take the money being spent to take care of the illegals to build the wall.

It is insane that our tax money is being spent for medical care, food and God knows what else to make sure they are comfortable.

By keeping out 1/2 of the people the savings from medical and education alone would pay for the wall in 2 years.

Which is cheaper Paul? $40B for a wall? Or $4T for illegals? And these guys are supposed to be so smart??

So Rand let me tell you how we little people decide what we have money to pay for and what we do not.

First we start with priorities, shelter, water, food, transportation to a job. Then we decide what to do with the left overs, more shelter than essential survival needs, better food, a car vs taking the bus, then we look at even lower priorities, like entertainment.

This shouldn´t come as a shock to you sir but your job is to do the same. The constitution will prove helpful in removing any confusion regarding the priorities. Defense and border security are in that top tier. For example all the federal government has accomplished with the department of education is to make education worse so don´t tell me we can´t afford top priority when we spend billions on things not in the constitutional purview of the federal government.

Here´s a little tidbit to consider; what is one third of the cost of the federal prison system? One third of the inmates are illegal intruders. What´s cheaper a wall or all of the associates costs of not having a wall?

Mr. Paul, I have at times thought of you as a true representative of the people. Perhaps I was wrong, way wrong.

If you add up all the decentralized government benefits at all levels being paid out, the government law enforcement costs to deal with the massive illegal alien population, and all the illicit drugs that illegal aliens in the employ of the international cartels are smuggling into and are transporting across the country, the total clearly exceeds $40 billion every year. So even if an effective borderline barrier will look to be expensive at the front end, once completed, the country will no longer have to pay out tens of billions of dollars each year to millions of illegal aliens and for all levels of government to deal with them.

Paul is correct and there will be no "Wall", never was going to be. POTUS himself yesterday admitted as much: "...I´ll take the blame...". He used the imagery to get elected.

We don´t need an literal, continuous, impractical "Wall" (see China). What we do need are sections of barriers, with surveillance, and armed reinforcements to handle the problem.

If memory serves, it was funded way back in 1986 but democrats would not follow through. Then there are all the other many ideas that come to mind for funding, like cutting back on spending, cutting foreign aid to Mexico, installing serious fees for all wire transfers to locations south of our border, etc.

Plenty of ways to fund the border Sparky Paul, and you just better get used to the fact that you aren´t going to get your amnesty. The nation´s voters have spoken when they elected Trump, not YOU.

Milton Friedman knew it. You certainly ought to know it. Unintended consequences of statist nonsense will decrease and liberty/prosperity/revenue will increase under Trump.

Besides we need you more than ever to fight against the FISA surveillance issue and the danger to all of our liberty. I mean that sincerely. Please look over there and stop with the line-item squirrel stuff. Trump’s got this.

Kick the Keg: Trump´s Tariffs Might Kill

Reason, by Eric Boehm    Original Article
Posted By: zoidberg- 3/12/2018 2:45:35     Post Reply
A Pennsylvania-based company that claims to be the last American manufacturer of steel beer kegs might be driven out of business by the tariffs that President Donald Trump imposed last week. On Thursday, Trump signed an executive order imposing 25 percent tariffs on steel imported into the United States (plus a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum). The tariff will help steel makers at the expense of steel-consuming businesses like American Keg of Pottstown, Pennsylvania. "Tariffs will inadvertently drive the price of American steel higher," CEO Paul Czachor tells Philly.com´s Sam Wood. "Within a year, we might have to raise our

One of the ironies of trade protectionism is that tariffs and import quotas are what we do to ourselves in times of peace and what foreign nations do to us with blockades to keep imports from entering our country in times of war. Or consider that we impose sanctions on U.S. enemies such as North Korea, Russia, and Iran because we want them to feel the economic pain of being deprived of imports. But now we are imposing sanctions on our own country, putting up tariffs supposedly to make Americans more prosperous. If ever there were a crisis of logic

Can Americans overcome hurdles to changing this country´s gun culture and the laws regulating firearms? There may be a path to accomplishing just that—but it´s unlikely that anybody would like the results. Let´s look back from a possible future… The strategy that gun controllers finally settled on was to shift the culture to make firearms ownership socially unacceptable. Then, legal changes would be possible. "I think we have to cleanse our culture of this false idea that guns are cool," gun opponents wrote. "Guns are not cool. Cool kids don´t use guns."

Attorney General Jeff Sessions thinks marijuana may be a gateway to prescription opioid and heroin addiction. In fact, a number of academic studies show lower rates of opioid abuse and overdoses in states that have legalized medical marijuana. Speaking at a Heritage Foundation event last night in honor of the late Ronald Reagan´s birthday, Sessions lamented the "permissive rhetoric" and media coverage surrounding marijuana and other drugs. "We don´t think illegal drug use is ´recreation.´ Lax enforcement, permissive rhetoric and the media have undermined the essential need to say no to drug use. Don´t start," Sessions said.

The alleged success of the California model is one of the more intense controversies in the nerdier corners of public-policy debate. For many progressives, California’s metastasizing liberalism proves you can have Scandinavian-style social policies and tax rates and still have robust economic growth. For conservatives, California is like a bumblebee. On paper, the damn thing shouldn’t be able to fly — and yet it does. Thus the cottage industry on the right of prophesizing California’s inevitable demise. What’s always bothered me about the whole argument is how it leaves out important factors.

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election.

Former Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid, who was once “hopeful” about President Trump, is not warming up to the commander in chief. Reid still has hurt feelings about Trump mocking the injuries he sustained when an exercise band he was using at home snapped and hit him in the face.

YORK, Pa. -- One of five black women golfers who were told to leave a Pennsylvania club said Tuesday it felt like they were playing "with targets on our backs."

After the ninth hole, an hour-and-a-half later, the group of white men told them they took too long a break and needed to leave.

Reporter Jim Acosta says too many Americans can’t see through President Trump’s “act” because they “don’t have all their faculties.” CNN’s chief White House correspondent and network colleague April Ryan sat down with Variety this week to discuss reporting on the White House in an era of “fake news” accusations. The network duo expressed concern that Mr. Trump and his rhetorical “tentacles” will cause “anarchy” around the globe. “Fake news, by the president saying this, is not just a simply or cute little statement for some,” Ms. Ryan said in a taped interview published Tuesday. “This has tentacles that is

The election is over and Republican Debbie Lesko has won a West Valley congressional special election in a district that has leaned right for decades. Here’s what else we learned from the unexpectedly competitive race to replace Trent Franks, the veteran Republican who resigned in December amid a sexual-misconduct scandal.The unofficial results show a dramatic underperformance by a Republican in the solidly GOP district. That’s a problem for Republicans, who now need to sort through the results to determine how problematic the landscape will be for them in November.
