    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Here's what the Libertarian Party thinks about Trump's immigration ideas.

    https://www.lp.org/dhs-announces-pla...born-children/

    “The deportation of hundreds of thousands of Salvadorans — as well as Sudanese, Nicaraguans, Haitians, and Hondurans — is objectionable on multiple levels,” said Libertarian National Committee Chair and Phoenix, Ariz., mayoral candidate Nicholas Sarwark. “Salvadorans are exceptionally well-integrated into American society, with 85 percent speaking some English and 48 percent speaking English very well or exclusively. Their labor force participation rate is 88 percent compared to the U.S. average of 63 percent, and 45,000 Salvadoran TPS holders have mortgages. They are not part of the problem of welfare dependency. They are part of the solution. People who are obviously contributing members of society should be welcomed with open arms.

    The U.S. economy suffered not at all from our acceptance of the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Immigrants made this country great in the first place, and they continue to do so today. We need to move in the direction of more open, legal immigration, not in the direction of militarized borders fit only for a police state.

    “The entire debate about immigration results from a misapplied concept of property rights,” said Sarwark. “When we refer to ‘my car, my clothes, or my toothpaste,’ few would argue that the word ‘my’ does not imply a property right. But we also use the word ‘my’ in the context of ‘my street, my neighborhood, and my country.’ We obviously don’t have a property right in the entire country, but opponents of immigration use arguments that imply we all do have a collective right to our country — and, therefore, a right to exclude foreigners. We don’t. We each have an individual moral right to hire, do business with, or sell a house to any willing person from anywhere. We also have the moral obligation not to interfere with our neighbor’s right to do or not do the same.”

    The issue of immigration has been obscured by layers of cynical campaign rhetoric, but it comes down to whether individual liberty applies only to native-born Americans or to everyone. If freedom works for us — and it does — what possible moral reason do we have to say it applies to people born in San Diego, but not to those born inches away in Tijuana?

    It's also the exact thing that people in New York and LA have been saying about "flyover country" for years now. Both New Yorkers and Trump are not entirely incorrect on the characterization. Although I think New Yorkers have a far more expansive view of what a shithole is, because while New York in the summer smells like its reality - thousands of hobos.using the steeets and subway stations as their personal toilets - Salt Lake City to them is the shithole.

    While taking it as a given that it's completely inappropriate for a President to say this about foreign countries, particularly one like Haiti that stood with his decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem, the far worse aspect of what he said was the inference that people from those countries have a taint to them. In particular, knowing the Indian kids at my high school and how highly they achieved in school and in the rest of their lives, I have absolutely no clue why anyone would want to keep them out.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Don't judge Ted too harshly. He's really not defending Trump's comments. Remember, his is a higher calling. He's working tirelessly to show us simpletons that no one ever has the moral high ground in the libertarian world.

    If Uncle Ted is implying that Trump's comment was in the same moral universe of what Obama said, then Uncle Ted has no credibility whatsoever in terms of moral high ground.

    Proving that most Republican Trump apologists are going to totally miss the point. It's not that he said something derogatory about other countries that have problems.

    It's that he is saying we don't want their people to come here LEGALLY or otherwise. Take them out! And he did it in the most vulgar, degrading way completely beneath the dignity of the office. He's saying we shouldn't allow immigrants from these countries because they must also be trash. Not to mention the fact that cutting legal immigration by half and implementing trade policies that would isolate the US economically from the global market is a great recipe for deep recession.

    That is what is the problem is.

    Having the GOP abandon their morals to support this absolute morally bankrupt president is what makes me hope the GOP burns in hell in November 2018.

    Then he should cutting and pasting stuff from Libertarian sources like I did instead of digging up political porn from shady alt-right corners of the interwebs.

    It seems some un-named democratic staffer's word against the POTUS' word. Of course, I assume there was more than just two people in the room.

    I am not sure what is up with democrats disclosing what is said (or supposedly said) behind closed doors these days... but it seems it has been happening a lot these days. I guess they all have "bad colds" that is slowing down their mental facilities.

    Feinstein blames 'bad cold' for handling of Fusion GPS transcript

    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein seemed to blame a “bad cold” for the controversial way she handled the release of an interview transcript for the co-founder of the firm behind the anti-Trump dossier.


    The California senator and top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee drew the ire of committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, earlier this week for publishing the transcript without consulting him.


    She told an NBC News reporter that she regrets not speaking to Grassley beforehand, citing her cold as a possible factor.


    "The one regret I have is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before. And I don't make an excuse but I've had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities a little bit,” she said, according to a tweet from a fellow NBC producer.

    Jeff Flake just said two different people in the room, one of them a Republican, told him what Trump said before the WP article came out. Do you believe him?

    What about all those trash fish swimming in the Utah Lake "toilet"? Does that make Provo a #sh*thole?
