Laugh of the Day

This Congress has promised all manner of border security and port security to the tune of billions of dollars… yet we have – to date – funded our promises for port security at only $900 million. That’s quite a distance between what we say and what we actually do.
Solomon Ortiz-politician

One must read the entire paper it one really wants to know what is going on. For example, on page A5 of the Sunday’s St. Louis Post Dispatch was a small article with the heading of:

U.S. will send more trainers for Afghan police, customs.

Only by reading does one learn that American experts are being sent to train the Afghanis how to better manage their porous border. Presumably, we do not want any illegal aliens sneaking across their border.

Who knew that the United States had such experts? Better yet, why have they not been used to secure our own borders?

This administration is amazing. It seems that we have enough money and trained personnel to accomplish almost anything . . . in another country, but not here.
