    Suppose we have a bread maker and this manufacturer had employees poisoning their products with random binary poisons that only kill a person if they also use random commercial products, like certain brands of tooth paste, deoderant, or foods, and so forth.

    The public is demanding they stop selling their product, but the company wont, saying it will drive them out of business, and each loaf has a buyer beware label on it speaking of the risk.

    Their sales drop through the floor, so they instead start selling their bread to other stores as a store brand prodcut.

    Public is again outraged and people start demanding that Congress pass a law, on top of all the others that would make this product illegal.

    Congress refuses to act saying that buyers need to be careful of what they buy and it was not a crisis anyway. One Congressman is asked how many people have to die from this bread before it becomes a crisis?

    He says well 9-11 was a crisis and that had 3,000 people die.

    Is 3,000 the threshold for how many deaths it takes to have a crisis?

    A crisis is in the eyes of the beholder.........If it were my child killed by an illegal alien who was repeatedly deported for crimes and just came back into the country...........then that would be a crisis.

    Kate's Law was never given a chance at all in the Senate..........which would have given mandatory prison time for repeat offenders caught crossing the border. 3 times 5 year minimum..........more than 3 years a 10 year minimum.

    Like Eagle said, it's in the eye of the beholder.

    An idiot shoots up his old school and kills 10 kids with a scary looking rifle and the Dimz think it's a national crisis..... All, while they own the killing of 50 MILLION children by abortion but claim that's nobody's business.

    Trump ran on this national emergency three years ago.
    You’re such a phony.
