    Social Security and Medicare taxes are not in a lock box. The wisdom of the Democrats and Republicans has been to raid these sources of income to pay for other government expenditures. The Treasury just' s writes a I.O.U. and adds the expense to the debt. I agree with you 100% on the wreck-less policy of involvement in other countries wars and the spending of money to prop up despots, dictators and crooked regimes. We have borrowed cheap money in the past, now that interest rates are rising, the cost of refinancing our debt is costing more.

    The only racial bigotry I have seen on this forum comes from the left mainly. All I see from your side are policies of destruction and a hatred of the Constitution.

    This GoFundMe money could be used to help BP and ICE agents pay bills during the shutdown

    Democrats want to abolish ICE and call them a bunch of Nazis. You would think they would be happy they aren't getting paid.

    Vulnerable members of Trump's cult who were fleeced by a scam for a privately-funded seizure of the private property of Texans will be getting their money back. (Some may well be Trump®U alumni who had been preyed upon by Trump in that scam and had to be reimbursed.)

    Told ya! It appears critical thinking isn't required to be an inbred Trumpsucker.

    You can't fix that level of stupid. You can, however, pummel it with a baseball bat and laugh at it while it bleeds out on the floor.

    It looks like these two scam artists are trying to move the money behind the secrecy of 501c4 tax status, where they don't have to reveal the sources of funds. They've singed up a couple of anti immigrant crackpots (Chris Kovatch for one) as a right wing celebrity board (and for a cut of the action).

    LOL, you fell for fake news.

    Hah, Brian Kolfage is building the wall.

    A private group says it's started building its own border wall using millions donated in GoFundMe campaign

    Not sure if the source is legit:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...l-GoFundMe-hits-claims-misspending-funds.html

    In any case, there is the possibility that Kolfage used the wall funds to buy himself a $0.6 million yacht.

    What is certain, however, is that they built 1 mile of wall with $6 million. Now, he wants more money for more wall. Maybe there will be more suckers falling for his spiel?

    However, we should give Trump fans some credit. Even they recognized that the GoFundMe wall was probably a scam, which is why they closed their wallets and stopped donating after a measly $22 million raised.

    Maybe Kolfage has to invent a new trick to part loyal Trump fans from their money.

    I think you have to think of the whole family. After all, the only reason she’s Secretary of Education is that the family bought her the job.

    More likely it will end up going to the Trump family legal defense fund.

    Guys like him are all over the conservative movement.

    Direct mail scammers besiege the talk radio right all the time.

    Ben Carson’s entire Presidential campaign was a direct mail fundraising scam. Only about 25% of the money they raised went to the campaign. The rest was siphoned off by consultants, direct mail companies, and guys like Armstrong Williams, who operated the scam for Carson.

    TRump himself staged a fake fundraiser for veterans shortly before the Iowa caucuses. He pocketed the money. And he was on his way to getting away with it until the Washington Post caught him.

    There was the Freedom Tour, a country music tour run by Oliver North and Sham Hammity, which alleged to raise money for Iraq veterans. But they spent most of the money on hotel suites, business jets, bar tabs and expensive meals.

    Right wing scammers raised lots of money for Allen West. There were so many fake Allen West scams going, that the real West campaign had trouble raising money!

    And this stuff isn’t new.

    Remember Casino Jack Abramoff? Most of his cohorts are still kicking around in the right wing chess pool. Ralph Reed, Paul Manafort, Grover Nordquist !

    Oh no, these two had every intention of pocketing it.

    I think he has, getting some wall built should encourage more donations.

    They'll build what they can, need to find another landowner willing to allow their work, it would be better if the government was doing this, it can expropriate and gain access, but the Democrats don't want the government to do this.

    It was reported Kolfage was a scam artist, had done this sort of thing before, that it was impossible, illegal to build private border walls, that the landowners didn't want to allow this. Apparently none of this was true, this is the problem when dealing with absolutes.

    What did he say that causes you to believe he thinks of Kolfage as a scam artist or purchasing perhaps what one may surmise you think is quite illegal?
