I would like to start a thread for what is right in the world rather than always focusing on what is wrong.

Here is a start:

Quote:
"There is no denying that the arc is truly exceptional in the unbroken streak of declining crime,” said William J. Bratton, who retired from his second stint as police commissioner last year.


And yes, many conservatives need to rethink their criticisms of de Blasio. Not saying that his way is 100% correct, but there are things to emulate.

While I am no fan of our President I do see some hope for 2018 If we can just reduce the party partisanship

I am hoping to see our representatives vote for appropriations bills when they agree with the items being included, even though they don't include everything they want. Only then can we hope to get our debt under control. This extortion to force items into appropriations bills when they don't have the support of the majority must stop. That includes the proposed south border wall, if the required majority doesn't support it.

Trump is holding an agreement on DACA hostage to his getting $18 billion in border wall funding that he promised Mexico would pay for and not the taxpayer.

Keith,

The issue of the border wall is an appropriations matter; DACA isn't an appropriations matter. That isn't an example of the type of hostage-holding I addressed.

With respect to whether a border wall should be funded, I tend to agree with you that other appropriations should not be held hostage to get that funding. However, what other means of border security that would be at least as effective as the wall are Democrats offering?

Increased funding for border patrol and court resources would be a much better and more efficient means of enhancing border security than the boondoggle wall that Trump is preoccupied with.

Besides, we weren't supposed to need to budget for the wall, remember?
