Why be confrontational about this?

As long as they let people freely pass, I like the idea of some public engagement. What I couldn’t see was any formal group or organization taking credit for the logistics, which means it’s a coalition of loose affiliations?

The last record was 3,289 in 2016 and it may it 4,500 this year.

Trump has probably had sea turtle soup. I don’t think he cares about wildlife one bit. Unless you are talking about the loggerhead Republicans such as Mitch McConnell and Bill Barr who do resemble turtles. July 11, 2019 7:12 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Deleted, wrong location.
