Jeb Bush Getting This One Right...

Bush has it at right on the question of closing Mosques and Trump, like is so often the situation, has it wrong. Unfortunately Mr. Bush believes only Christian refugees from Syria should be among those admitted to the USA.

“When you talk about internment, you talk about closing mosques, you talk about registering people, that’s just wrong, I don’t care about campaigns,” Bush said.

Bush continued, “It’s not a question of toughness. It’s manipulating people’s angst and their fears. That’s not strength, that’s weakness.”

“I find it abhorrent that Donald Trump is suggesting we register people. That haunts to a time that no one wants to go back to,” Bush added later in the interview.

Rubio kind of sort of danced around the issue but his message, although carefully worded, is very close to Trump's.

“It’s not about closing down mosques. It’s about closing down anyplace, whether it’s a cafe, a diner, an internet site, anyplace where radicals are being inspired,” Rubio said.

“The bigger problem we have is our inability to find out where these places are, because we’ve crippled our intelligence programs, both through unauthorized disclosures by a traitor, in Edward Snowden, or by some of the things this president has put in place with the support even of some from my own party to diminish our intelligence capabilities.”

“So whatever facility is being used, it’s not just a mosque, any facility that’s being used to radicalize and inspire attacks against the United States, should be a place that we look at,” Rubio said.

Entire article BELOW THE FOLD.

Of course the federal government shutting down religious institutions is a direct violation of the constitution and ones right of religious freedom. But that little detail apparently hasn't crossed the Trumpster's dictatorial.



  1. Either Trump doesn't know what a President can and can't do, or he knows his xenophobic supporters don't know.

  2. What is amazing is that Trump's supporters aren't disgusted by his anti-Constitutional blather that continually flows out of his maw. What is strange is that his bellicose followers throw conniption fits whenever they perceive President Obama is "shredding, pissing on, or desecrating" the Constitution, yet they've been silent over what Trump has said he would do should he be elected president.

    Silence means agreement. Trump's followers believe closing down mosques and making Americans who are Muslims register in a national data base and possibly wear identification is brave American way of dealing with their fears.

    The guy who has the biggest, baddest, loudest mouth on the campaign trail is probably a closet pant-wetter. How else to explain his overwrought, fraidy-cat plans for Americans he fears?

    If this is Trump's idea of making America great again, the Goopers are, indeed, in deep doo-doo.

  3. I recall a bully in my 10th grade year had everyone believing he was the baddest, meanest, toughest dude in school. Everyone stayed out of his way and didn't challenge him, although few could actually say they had personally witnessed his self proclaimed badass exploits.

    One morning the dude cornered me in the bathroom just before class with the intention of shaking me down as he needed money for cigarettes. Even though I had a couple bucks on me, more than enough to by smokes in 1968, I told him to take a hike.

    As it happened the dude became belligerent and threatened me with "kicking my sorry a*s and moping the floor with it. I told him to go for it because I'd finally had it with his antics.

    Fifteen minutes later as I sat in class Hugh still had not appeared in class. I guess he was having trouble with a nose and lip problem. Funny thing though, something happened to the bully in Hugh after that day, it wasn't seen again.

    Let's hope the same thing happens to Trump. Preferably before the primaries.
