      The Obama Administration had to use Non Lethal Measures on the Southern Border in the exact same manner as the Trump Administration has had to now only when Obama had to do this the Liberal Progressive Socialist Democrats remained silent on the issue.
      So why was it ok for one President to do this yet not another. Same issue facing America just one President was a radical Liberal and the one now a Conservative. More proof Liberal Democrats in Elected Offices and not in Elected offices are true hypocrites. #VoteThemOut2020 #RED2020 #RemoveAllDemocrats2020

    Liberal Democrats are Socialists.
    Nazis are Socialists.
    One of the most well known political parties of the 20th century which was socialistic was the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party).
    Socialism is a liberal economic system with state ownership or control of the all the major means of production and distribution of goods and services, like Healthcare.
    Socialism is the economic system imposed by Communism, but another one of the most well-known political parties of the 20th century which was socialistic was the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party) which was headed by the evolutionary racist Adolf Hitler.
    The points raised in the Nazi platform demand an increase in taxes to support them. Liberalism today demands heavy progressive and graduated income taxes.
    Liberalism today demands a "death tax" on anyone inheriting an estate and Central control of the financial system.
    Central control of the press. Liberals today demand control or suppression of talk radio and Fox News.
    Central control of education, with an emphasis on doing things their way. Liberals today are doing things their way in our schools.
    ANTIFA Democrats want to deny your First Amendment Rights to Free Speech.
    Liberal Democrats are The Nazis repackaged. #VoteThemOut2020

    Obama Used Tear Gas At Least 80 Times at Border
    Under the Obama Administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) law enforcement officials, including Border Patrol agents, utilized tear gas against migrants at or near the border at least 80 times between FY2012 and early FY2017.
    CBP officials reported the use of tear gas and pepper spray to push back “assaultive” caravan migrants attempting to enter the U.S. illegally on Sunday. The agency began using these particular sprays during the Obama administration in 2010.
    Breitbart News confirmed the CBP began using tear gas (2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile – CS) in 2010, though the available usage data initiates in FY2012.
    “CBP takes Sunday’s employment of use-of-force very seriously. CBP reviews and evaluates all uses of force incidents to ensure compliance with policy,” a CBP spokesman told Breitbart News in response to an inquiry. “Over 1,000 individuals who were part of the so-called caravan attempted to cross illegally into the U.S. by breaching sections of the fence and using vehicle lanes in and near the San Ysidro Port of Entry. This group ignored law enforcement agencies in Mexico and assaulted U.S. Federal Officers and Agents assigned to respond to the situation in San Diego.”
    “As a response to the assaults and to defuse this dangerous situation, trained CBP personnel employed less-lethal devices to stop the actions of assaultive individuals attempting to break into the U.S.,” the spokesman continued. “CBP has been preparing for weeks for events like the one on Sunday. We have seen the use of violence by members of this so-called caravan who have attacked law enforcement personnel in Guatemala, Mexico and now the U.S. CBP will consider using all approved and available resources to protect travelers, caravan members, and our agents and officers.”
    The CBP use of force reports show CS tear gas used 126 times since 2012. Officials utilized pepper spray a total of 540 times during that same period.
    The current CBP Use of Force Policy handbook (dated May 2014) requires all officers and agents to be trained in the use of all weapons utilized in operations, including less than lethal devices, such as these types of sprays. It also requires the officers and agents to be exposed to the sprays as part of the course of instruction.
    During a telephone conference call with news media on Monday, CBP Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan said, “Yesterday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and officers in San Diego effectively managed an extremely dangerous situation involving over 1,000 individuals who sought to enter the U.S. unlawfully in large groups. They did so safely and without any reported serious injuries on either side of the border.”
    “As we’ve articulated for several weeks, we have been concerned about the size of the caravan, its primarily single-adult composition, and the aggressive and assaultive behavior at both the Honduras-Guatemala border and the Guatemala-Mexico border,” the commissioner continued. “U.S. government officials have noted the presence of criminals in the group, and the Government of Mexico has arrested over 1,000 caravan members for criminal violations in Mexico.”

This is very wrong. It should have been put to a vote of every property owner within the town site. The original community plan of years ago to protect the small streets and historic homes of the downtown has changed.

Now it is a pick and choose plan by a few residents (some not even living in the town site) of who/what parcels they want to tell what can be done on their property. The rules should be only applied to the historic buildings of Main Street. OR, if anything else it should apply to everyone withing the town site. Not just random parcels that certain people want to pick on for whatever reasons.

Many long time people have not payed attention as to what this has morphed into. Many people who worked on the original plan years ago have since died. The transplants (city/bay area) have worked their way into making bad decisions that hurt the small town and it's residents.
