VIDEO: Welcome children

George Will: 'We can handle this'
Register
Jul 28, 2014

The Register's syndicated columnist George Will weighed in on what Americans should do about the children at the U.S.-Mexican border. 

“We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to America. You’re going to go to school, get a job, and become Americans,’” Will said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday.

"We have 3,141 counties in this country; that would be 20 per county. The idea that we can't assimilates these 8-year-old criminals with their Teddy bears is preposterous. We can handle this."

There you go again

Don't forget about our own children! We seem to be having a problem maintaining our owm.

Think of the tens of billions in taxpayer dollars that can be saved annually by disbanding the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Dept.?

H*ll, open those borders and put out the welcome mat for ALL the poverty stricken children of the world.

"20 per county"? Why not 200, 2,000 or 20,000?

"We can handle this."

aaaand who is it that's going to pay for each of these 20 kids per county? Where are they going to live? Who is going to take care of them?? Let's worry about taking care of our own starving, neglected, abused children that are already here before we go ahead an make the problem worse so the liberals can feel good about themselves.

Re: "who is it that's going to pay,"

Just put it on the Federal Reserve's tab.

They've already got over $3 trillion on their balance sheet, what difference is a few more trillion of 'free' fiat currency?

deertracker

How do you like him now?

Contango

How can the lefties reconcile the FACT that this was said on 'Faux News'???

Gotta be a lie, right?

George Will is on occasion conservative.

deertracker

Wrong! Why does every CONservative have to have the same exact opinion? Agree or disagree but you can't shun the guy just because he has a different opinion. I happen to partially agree with him. We shouldn't divide up these kids in twenties but we can handle humanely returning them home as long as it is safe!

Contango

Re: "as long as it is safe!"

It ain't. Drug gangs still rule and the govts. are corrupt and ineffective.

Many that are returned are just waiting to begin the trek again.

The vast majority will be able to stay.

U.S.: Light up the "Vacancy" sign; FREE food, schooling, clothing, shelter, medical care (and whatever else we can think of) is awaiting you!

PLUS, if you don't have a "teddy bear," one will be provided for you compliments of Geo. Will.

Re: "answer,"

See above.

You can't articulate a thought of your own?

Says nothing as usual!

Contango

Re: "nothing,"

What was it that you failed to understand?

deertracker

I didn't think you were serious about the welcome mat. I got my answer!

Contango

Re: "welcome mat."

Heck, let 'em all in from all over the world, provide 'em FREE cash and prizes.

The U.S. is headed for bankruptcy anyway, let's make it a multi-cultural, blow-out goin' away party!

Got: Gold, guns and grub?

deertracker

Got it pooh!

Contango

Re: "Got it,"

FINALLY, dimwit!!!!

Anything to shut you the hell up!!!!!!!!!!

Have you met "every" conservative as your assertion implies? Who is shunning "the guy?" Just curious.

deertracker

Sugar is shunning the guy. My assertion does not imply anything. It's well known that either you get in line with their way or get lost!

CommonsenseNow

Well known by whom? About what are you talking? As I said, George Will is a man, not a script. Just like most people. Big whoopty doo, he has his opinion on this matter. So what? I disagree. You agree. The next guy disagrees; the next guy agrees. Then all of a sudden it is somehow newsworthy that someone dares deviate from some mystical "script." Some view the situation that there are a group of people who broke the law but still need taxpayer help because it is the compassionate thing to do; some view the situation that we can't even help our vets, we're broke, and it falls on the backs of 120 million taxpayers to take care of it all when they're struggling to bring home the bread. So, we have different opinions. Is that a bad thing? I don't believe in these hard lines. Let people be people; not labels.

deertracker

You asked, I answered! Save the diatribe for someone who cares!

sugar

You don't even know who the fu** George Will is. All you know he is supposed to be on the other side, Will is rarely conservative and if you did know anything about him that would be number one.

CommonsenseNow

YOU ARE RIGHT!!! GEORGE WILL IS A RINO, NOT A CONSERVATIVE. You have a juggernaut on both sides. The last time there was a real reduction in the federal budget was in 1964. When they talk about budget reduction, it is always reduction of growth. The feds are pumping so much money in the stock market. This is a huge bubble. It's impossible to pay this debt back, unless they reduce the budget like 1/3 and GDP increases by 5-6 percent. There simply are NOT ENOUGH "rich" to pay the bill. Russia and China are getting together ... if the dollar is no longer the reserve currency, the shi* will hit the fan. And people are playing tiddlywinks. Focused on minor crap. None of this stuff is going to matter in a couple of years.

deertracker

He's a hater and a rightie yt like you!
