I see this as the most blatent form of legal embezzlement that any president has ever preformed on the American tax payer.

To dumb this down for the people who can't grasp this, it would be like you own a plow truck and get hired by the town to plow for them. The town has its own plow trucks but you refuse to use them. Instead you use your own and bill the usage of the truck to the town and an inflated rate. Instead of making $25 an hour, you are now making $75 an hour. Had you just plowed people's driveways, maybe you'd be making $50 an hour.


Sad.

Can't imagine how the residents and business owners in the area feel. Between FL and Trump Tower security expenses, the cost is obscene and abuse.

because conservative Trump supporters are always violent with their protesting as opposed to liberal protesters who are all so peaceful and non violent

I am not a supporter of blatent abuse of public's money so if it's true, yes it's hypocritical

"A government that does not trust it's law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms is itself unworthy of trust" James Madison

"The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." Ronald Regan

Slip... just a note- white conservative Christian males have killed more Americans than anyone else in this country protesting the government. Timmothy Mcvhey racked up something like 900 kills.

And yes. It's true.

Not only was Nebe way off on the number killed, McVeigh didn't say he was a Christian. Although he was raised as a Catholic, he said he lost touch with that faith and never really returned to it. He once said that he did have core belief but wouldn't say what that was. He later admitted that science was his religion and just before his execution he said he was an agnostic. He took the last rights by a priest just before he was executed, but, from what he had previously said about not believing there is a hell, and if after death he found there was, he would use his military training to “improvise, adapt, and overcome,” which an agnostic willing to "improvise" would do when offered last rights--hedge his bets in case there really was a hell.
