  1. She warned. I would like to guess how many people are sitting on emails that may have been forwarded to them, and forwarded again, or save under something else.

  2. I made a comment about Emails. It did not appear.
    We need to be careful about what we say in emails.
    There has to be people now who have such emails that were forwarded under another subject, or saved under another title.

  3. Oh yea La Raza boy at HUD. Kiss your neighborhood goodbye and say hello to carrying a mortgage for an illegal in the house next door. Put Fauxcohauntus in office and it will be done faster than you can blink.

    • The whole country needs to react like the good citizens of Murietta, CA. Let’s adopt that old slogan from the Spanish left during the civil war: they shall not pass.

      • I agree that people do need to stand firm that these illegals should not be accepted further into the fabric of America, into their communities. It will take organization and courage, but often people will react if it is in their backyard. And they should. If not, they will have to live with the repercussions.

        I heard McCaul (I think) this morning — he went to one of the centers. Believes they should be sent back. But, while he is compassionate, he noted that about 80% of them are not children, but “yoots” of 16,17 years old and perhaps older.

        As an aside, I gather from your comments, that you share my concern about the information blackout — I don’t even know that this is legal, but it seems to be coming from DHS and HHS — bureaucracies with guns and power.

  4. Aw, no one wants those adolescent, stilted, “composited,” ghostwritten books? I can’t read books anymore and must listen–can you imagine my lying in bed listening to “him” read to me? OMG!
