What ever happened to liberals preaching we all should respect each others differences, let's all get along, kumbaya, put a flower in other's hair (if you have any) and just get along in a spirit of love, even if we don't agree? Back in the day I found the hippies pretty annoying. Now I take it all back. I'd rather have those goofy liberal hippies around now than today's insane out of control, agree with us or else mentality, so-called progressive liberals.

Ironically, today's nutty liberals accuse Donald Trump of everything they are guilty of themselves. If everything they say about Trump were true, then they should love the guy, if not be really fond about what he's supposedly about, because that would make him just like them, lol!!!

People have been calling to seal the Border and Build The Wall since the 70's!! The problem has always been soft people who think it cannot happen to them. The problem has been Politicians who refuse to listen to their Constituents. The problem has been a demographic make up of Politicians who are Globalism Minded and want no Borders. The problem has been Voters allowing the Politicians to operate freely with absolutely no threats of recall or Class Action Law Suits for incompetence and misrepresentation. There are hundreds of more problems that can be named but nothing will change until the Voters decide enough is enough and they decide to vote out every Globalist and Socialist Politician in every State who is dragging everybody into the Globalist Minded Society. Globalism does NOT work. Look at Europe in shambles look at the UK and look at Venezuela!! Those regions are the future of California and this Nation unless you the Voter make a strong stand against the Liberal Progressive Socialist's now in Elected Offices in California and in all States.

    The people do not support building a wall for the entire border, which is what Trump demands. The people do not support building a concrete wall, which is what Trump (usually) demands. These statements are based on recent polls but the polling on this has been pretty consistent for months.

    Democrats do support border security, which includes fencing in certain sections. In fact, most of the fencing currently along the border was put up under Obama. Trump has actually built no NEW wall or fencing, despite his claims that he has. Trump has refurbished some fencing in areas where it already existed.

    There is currently NO concrete wall anywhere along the border, again despite Trump's claims. There are about 6 sample wall sections near San Diego but they are not at the border and they are no a barrier to anything (except good taste).

    Mexico has not paid for any wall or fencing and there is no realistic prospect that they will pay. Chanting at political rallies does not make things true.

    The Heresy of Christian Nationalism

    God doesn’t bless America.

    That’s not how this works.

    I’m sorry to break it to you, Bible Christians—but that’s just how it is.

    I know this kinda wrecks the convenient narrative you’ve been working for the past 60 or so years (and hitting especially hard the past eighteen months), but honestly that nasty bit of heresy has done enough damage already and it needs to go. It’s straight-up of the devil.

    I’m not sure where you’re getting your taglines and hat slogans from, but I know it isn’t from the Bible. I know it isn’t from your coveted and regularly trotted out John 3:16:

    For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

    God loved the world.
    God is in the world-loving business—not the America-blessing business.

    You remember the world, don’t you; that massive, spinning sphere of 7.6 billion disparate human beings: brown people, Muslims, LGBTQ folks, Atheists, *bleep*hole countries—and lots and lots of non-English speaking, non-Americans?

    Check out the Old and New Testaments again.
    Read through the Gospels a few times.
    Use any translation you’d like:
    No America First.
    No Making America Great Again (or at all.)
    No flags or national anthems to pledge allegiance to.

    A few other bits of news from the Scriptures:
    Jesus was born in the Middle East.
    He didn’t speak English.
    He wasn’t white.
    He wasn’t Evangelical.
    He wasn’t a Republican.
    He wasn’t American.
    Heck, he wasn’t even Christian.

    Jesus was a Rabbi who spent his days as an itinerant street preacher, living off the generosity of strangers and speaking in parables about a new “Kingdom of God:'” a radical way of living where the poor were cared for, the oppressed freed, and the outcasts welcomed in.

    Jesus came to usher in a countercultural kind of interdependent community, in direct opposition to the power-wielding Roman Empire he stepped into. It was a diverse, barrier-breaking, border-transcending, nation-defying movement of generosity and mutual affection. It had nothing to do with blessing a Government or building an army—or creating a gated community of white folks in North America two thousand years in the future.

    To claim that America was at all the point of the Gospels is flat-out heresy.
    To assume any God-ordained supremacy based on religion, nation of origin, pigmentation, orientation, or native tongue—is a perversion of the work of Jesus and idolatry of the worst kind.

    I’m sorry to break all this bad news to you. I understand the actual words of the Gospel are problematic, given the story you’re selling to those whose fear you’re leveraging in America right now.

    It’s impossible to be devoted to the Jesus of the Scriptures, while refusing refugees, expelling immigrants, vilifying brown people, worshiping political power, guarding borders, and neglecting the poor—which is exactly the point.

    As long as you continue to conflate God and America, you’re going to be whitewashing the Good News, shrinking God into your own image, and bastardizing the message of Jesus in ways that can only be described as fully and violently heretical.

    If your God is America—you need a bigger god

If the southern border we're sealed it would cost the US economy billions. We rely on migrant workers to grow and harvest our food, cook in our restaurants, clean our hotel rooms.

          Couldn't agree more. Californians and others forget that our ag industry is dependent on migrant labor. It's not like any of our kids are going to pick strawberries or harvest almonds. Heck, most of the Bay area wouldn't even be able to have their lawns mowed.

              Umm, the lazy high school brats I tried to employ were the daughters of local teachers. Know any conservative teachers? Didn't think so. One of them came to the business with all the days blacked out for the summer she couldn't work, summer camp, trips to wherever, nature walks etc. More days blacked out than available to work. Entitled little snot.

          What Trees?
          Posted on: 2019-01-02 07:56:11   By: Anonymous
           
          Where are these trees? We are in phase #2 after 2 other hazardous tree programs after the Butte fire.
          I can tell you, a inept con of a forester went down Old Gulch Rd, and marked trees that didn't meet the guidelines, the crew saved some, but other healthy unscortched trees were removed on my land along the road. I didn;t see the trees were marked, so far from the road, no hazard, The bill I got before they took it up with my insurance was $18,000.
          The whole operation was BS. Tetratech was inept, the rep was inept, the whole operation was nothing more than a hogs at the trough example of government stupidity aided by tax $. This is why government gets a bad rap, in this case they deserved it.

          What trees? where?

          Why are you repeating yourself?
          Anyway, we're not going to seal the border, at least not permanently. Again, we need border security, that's rather obvious.
          Now just in Ca we've had 3 officers murdered by an illegal that should never of been in our country in the first place. And I certainly hope you don't put your head of lettuce before you do the life of a legal immigrant who studied hard and became a US citizen and a proud member of law enforcement to serve in a community he loved, do you? Both of these murderers were criminals before they gunned down officers, but our Gov Jerry Brown passed a law so ICE were not notified of their release from prison.
          This is just ridiculous and now we see these migrants you want here, throwing rocks and bottles at our officers at the border.
          What dreamers they sure are, peace loving, law abiding future democrats.
          I sure don't approve of our federal workers not getting their paycheck. I think all of those in congress should not be getting their's along with anything else like their medical coverage for them and their families until THEY DO THEIR JOB.
          I hope this situation is solved soon, I do know this murderer crossed the border in Arizona, a wall won't stop everything of course, but it will stop many people, and that's a fact.
          We spend BILLIONS every month just on our Southern border as it is, funding the WALL will help cut cost in many ways, like the 100's of BILLIONS spent on illegals every year in this country.
          What's just as sad, Gov Brown said he would NOT talk to Mrs Singh because he didn't want to upset her (what a coward) any further. (channel 13 news)
          Get it done Mr President.

            A shovel digs under the wall.
            What good is a wall, if as some photos show people can dig under it?
            A smart security system is cheaper, and more effective.
            A grapple hook thrown on the top of the wall, would allow people to scale the wall.
            A wall is a waste of $. 15$Billion required, the wall would have to be set back at least 60 feet, this stops farmers ranchers access to the Rio Grande.
            The wall is a idiotic boondoggle that must be dropped.
            Get a clue no wall.
            We have plenty of wall now.
            We need smart solutions, not a waste of tax $, increasing the debt.

              Agreed. What we need are more personnel and tech, 21st century solutions. A wall is a medieval concept and simply a metaphor, not to mention a nod to Trump’s overplayed ego.

      church and government hand in hand

      It is interesting how any institution founded by men and over seen by mere men of carnal thinking has been allowed over 2000 plus years to not only perpetrate the lie but to be given free rein by free men to promote and to profit from that lie even to the extent of Child Molestation and Homosexuality which are not only practiced by it's members but by it's ministers itself freely and openly as well as in secret and not held accountable yet given a free rein against the laws of this land also put in place by men. It is a true fact that men would rather believe the lie than face the honest pure truth as the lie is more soothing and does not challenge but subverts and diminishes the stature of men over all bringing about complacency. We see this not only in our religious institutions of men for men but we also see this in our government which has forgotten it's Constitution is to keep Government in control not it's citizens much in the same fashion the historical biblical scriptures were put into place as a Instruction Manual to remind men when they get out of control and think more highly of themselves much as a god in many ways. We see this same likeness in those who can only stand behind a single party line of governments fabricated by men for themselves and ignore the simple laws of common sense. Truly men have forgotten their Constitution much as they have forgotten their Instruction Manual in the Scriptures abandoning both to the ends of their own self destruction.

            I don't think Steven R Smith even said anything yet on this article. This just shows how some people just make fools of themselves and totally ignorant. Where did they grow you at?
