Look at his record to see what he can do. He hasn't had a winning record or close to it ever. A great assistant but not the person to continue with the QND tradition. Being a Alumni doesn't make you a good coach. Bender was a great coach. Connell is a great coach. Douglas was a great coach. Were they Alumni?

It's that 8 years has went by, jeez the guy was working as a an ASA, running the dag gum school board, in the ANG, and now he's on a 5 million dollar bond, hasn't hurt anybody and has ties to the community, no flight risk, (that's what defense would argue if there wasn't a "money crunch"....)

Strawman: Where Do You Weigh In On The Immigration Crisis?

6 months, 2 weeks ago by Strawman

  

 

The responses and comments generated by The Strawman are, for the most part, interesting and have merit.   And, whether you know it or not, they’re appreciated.  On that note a few questions have come up that I don’t have answers for.  But I’m sure you do.    They are:

What exactly is the 3.7 billion dollars Mr. Obama has asked Congress for going to do for America?

Why would anyone in the House or Senate vote in favor of providing another 3.7 billion dollars given they’ve been shut out of the process---have not been allowed to visit the various detention centers—and have not been notified when illegals have been placed in their state until AFTER the fact?

If Mr. Obama is indeed sincere about working with Republicans, why does he constantly attack them?

Do you think Mr. Obama is aware there are almost 360,000 court cases ahead of those who have recently entered the country illegally---and that his idea of hiring and training new judges and court officials could be perceived as just “window dressing?”

How would you feel if 50 to 100 illegal aliens, ages 12 to 18, were suddenly dropped off in your town or village?

Where does your local congressman or senator weigh in on the most recent immigration crisis?   

Is America, using the policy now in place, doing the right thing by detaining and housing those aliens entering illegally---or would they be better served by being returned to their home country immediately?

Do you believe this most recent alien invasion is by chance-- or has been orchestrated by members of the Obama administration?

Just wondering.  Feel free to express yourselves……..
