If Obama had done this to fund any number of the great ideas he had that the GOP Congress blocked at every turn, he would have been able to do far more amazing things than he already did.

So, what are we (the general public), to do now that the Supreme court has very clearly violated the constitution with this ruling?


There does come a point when citizens must stand up and remove govt from power.

How many times do the links have to be posted proving that the good walls on the border already have been 80-90% in deterring illegal entry before you and yours stop repeating this lie? You know better than the Border Patrol and Homeland Security that have said the good walls are very effective and needed?


As in every government department there is waste and fat. Nothing will be taken from the military that isn't absolutely necessary. Border security should be a part of the military's function anyway.


Lol, the actual wall bill was passed back in 2006 with Obama's signature on it. Just what are these great ideas that Obama suggested that the GOP blocked? Both sides have been known to block each other so no side is innocent of doing so.


A judge ruled in favor of this so how is it unchecked power? Speaking of unchecked power Obama bypassed congress and implemented DACA and DAPA by EO. Wouldn't that be unchecked power?

So what? This was his single biggest campaign promise.

You know, the one that made him the first POTUS in US history with no political or military experience, defeating a big name politician who was projected to win.

The left loves moving the goalposts

That poster has it azz backwards anyway. 60% of illegals in our country were border jumpers not 40%. Doesn't matter anyway both groups need be dealt with not one ignored for the other. At least we have some record on the visa over stayers. Illegal aliens we don't know a damned thing about.

There's your link...Trump plays on average 87 times per year. Obama played an average of 42 times per year. It was your side that posted that Obama only played golf...just proving once again how wrong your side is.

Again, so what? Why are you focusing on trivial things? My side? Just because someone on the right may be wrong doesn't make us all wrong nor are we all saying the same things. Get a grip!


How about addressing the more important things that I brought up in my post instead?

Double razor wire...

No, illegals haven't been climbing the good walls with any success. The last one who did broke both legs trying. I am all for the razor wire however.

276 is the number of executive orders Obama has pushed through.


Just in case you forgot
