Donald Duck quacks similar sentiments in the forties propaganda cartoons. Perhaps a Donald ahead of his time? It took me a moment to remember the cartoon the great ducktator. I knew I had seen Donald Trump before somewhere.

Some of these cartoons where even frowned upon as Donald always ran around with no pants on.

To gain power you have to gain a cause in politics,then present more causes that other people care about ,once you have enough causes and enough people that care about those causes you gain favor as a candidate.The unvailing of the classmen of 2017 is upon us and their causes that you care are once again cast over you like glitter fairy dust.

You bet Joe. Just wait until his new brown shirt clothing line hits the market. Right hand armpit has perspiration stain resistant material incorporated at no extra cost.

Since he has decided not to bomb kids after all because of those silly rules. He hopes they can be a cheap labor pool to produce the shirts instead.

A warning from the American heart association will be included. Prolonged elevation of the right arm is hard on the heart.

Boots and torches in the lineup as well. Sales should be terrific if not huge or possibly even fantastic.

Have you raised your right arm and swore your alligence to the leader yet? If not practicing first in a mirror helps.

However. Trump fails on the "good Christian walk" as well. He sues everyone at the drop of a hat. He's prideful. He's gluttonous. He speaks falsehoods. He insults others. He's possibly the definition of an egomaniac (the opposite of humility). He disdains those in need of financial aid.

If one wanted to gauge each candidate on the scale of being a "good Christian" Trump would be on the 0% side of things and Sanders (a secular Jew!) would be on the 100% side. Trump has almost nothing in common with Christ or the beliefs espoused by him.

I believe, for a Christian, James chapter 2 has something to say about this:

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that [kind of] faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! 20 Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. 24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25 And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? 26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.

OK T, you can stop trying to remember that far back now, I researched it for you

According to the following and considering I said 'rampant ' and made no claim as to 'none' which is implied by your question utilizing 'no' ... things have been steadily ramping up

This quote from the article ties in nicely with MTUPower's rant about lack of criminal prosecution of pre-marital sex crimes in contemporary New Haven.

"69% of all criminal cases in New Haven between 1710 and 1750 were for premarital sex"

Over the edge stuff perhaps Tom. Satire I hope.

My only real true concern is that authority based actions do not occur in America. To me that has been a subtle trend already noticeable in American society from the outside.

Illegal aliens are exactly that. It does not take a wall to deal with them.

Simple federal laws could be enacted like employing an alien results in a horrendous fine. Nor can they receive welfare. As soon as word got around they would cease coming and those present would gravitate home. Then an effort can be made to root out any illegals with a criminal record here or back home remaining.

Most countries have less border protection than Americans but have no issues. For example why would I really want to get into a country or stay illegally. Especially where the laws prevent me from making money? Perhaps the laws are already on the books but not enforced. That is the same as having no laws.

The concept of a wall working is basically just a sound bite.

Pretty far back as even Adam and Eve apparently had a go at it. It is a conditional thing though

. A young lady I took out once told me she had an ongoing policy. . She was saving it for her marriage or Saturday night. Just whatever came first each time.
