Looks like our dear leader and his blind followers have something in common... If he doesn't agree with it, then he goes into a rage. Sounds like some posters on here .

I am sure some of the last dogs of the president on this forum can find a way to justify this, let's hear it, Dick.

Republicans raising taxes? Yup.

As the driver of an electric vehicle, I feel this is at the very least, discriminatory. Beyond that, it's a clear gimme to the oil and gas industry given the subsidies they receive. Worse still, the $7,500 tax credit is unavailable to all electric car purchasers (myself included), given the phase out, yet they want to tax me yearly for my vehicle. I already pay taxes and fees on the electricity I use to drive my car. Lastly, how can they reconcile this with internal combustion engine cars (like my second vehicle, a Prius) that get nearly double the fleet average in fuel economy?

Finally summer common sense. It's interesting that Republicans want this wall so bad, given that a week respected standard bearer of the party seemed to dislike walls? 

June 12, 1987. President Ronald Reagan demanded that the wall be torn down between East and West Germany. My how the script has flipped. Though it seems the Russians are in control of this President, it makes sense he wants a wall again.

It is also not recommended to stop in certain areas in Chicago at night. These same area in Chicago also seem to use a lot of concertina wire to around parking lots and factories.

It seems you are equating the US-Mexico border to be synonyms with the border that was between East and West Germany. The East-West German border was a result of WWII and Stalin who imposed his will on the western allies and Germany in a land grab-power grab.

It is one thing to argue the aesthetics of a border barrier but it is a completely different discussion if you think there should be a border between Mexico and the US.
A wall is a wall. Immoral, in my opinion. These are people, human beings, they are no better or worse than your neighbor on the whole. Reagan gave them a chance, and guess what? Nothing bad happened. People need to be less jingoistic a little bit more open minded....

I am skeptical that Trump has better intelligence... Lol, just realized that statement had multiple meanings that are all true.

You're joking, right?
