THIS IS AMERICA

This is what America is really about, and these NYPD officers, bless them, are true Americans. 

The police were called to a Whole Foods in Manhattan  as a woman was attempting to leave a store without paying for food containers. The officers didn't arrest her. They paid for her food:

Here is the story:

"When you look at someone's face and see that they need you and they're actually hungry, it's pretty difficult as a human being to walk away from something like this,"  Lt Luis Sojo said. 

Sometimes people just need a break. A little kindness to help them through a difficult time.  Americans have always stood for kindness and understanding, be it helping a nieghbor, or helping an ally. 

When President Roosevelt lent old US Destroyers to England to help the UK fight the German UBoats before the US entered the war, he famously said "You don't try and sell your neighbor a hose when his house is on fire." 

Of course England isn't Mexico, and you know who isn't FDR.

Cute, but why not have some concern for our poor and lower middle class. While all of you bleeding heart Progressives whine about the poor border children, I worry about every able bodied man and woman who crosses the border and gets a job and makes it harder for our workers to get higher paying jobs and I worry about American manufacturers who locate their factories outside the U.S. and folks who do not seem to understand that tariffs levied against Chinese products help American workers. But, I guess your "everything for free" Democratic candidates have the true answers. You folks are really pathetic. By the way, that poor lady I New York probably can't get free medical care. In her next life, she should come back as an undocumented immigrant

Your analysis is so weak that it hurts. Look into birth rates and immigration rates sometime.

The United States birth rate is too low to sustain the economy without immigration. And even after legal and undocumented immigrants come in, we barely have the growth rate to keep up.

Look into Japan's economy to see what happens when birth rates decline and immigration is stifled.

There is nothing "progressive" about this. It is math.

And for heaven's sake, listen to yourself. Reagan gave an amnesty to millions of undocumented immigrants. Was he a bleeding heart liberal progressive?

Fortunately we have the tax dollars to spend on an inspiring tank parade. Also, it sure is refreshing to have a president that finally acknowledges the heroism of the colonial army in taking the New Jersey airport in 1775.
