First of all, ask Fauxcohauntus if she feels bad for taking the place of an actual American Indian in academia?

Elizabeth pocohantas Warren:

The Massachusetts senator and liberal firebrand went on a lengthy Twitter tirade, calling Trump’s candidacy one built on “racism, sexism, and xenophobia” and supported by Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Ku Klux Klan.

So what should be the response to this?
AS for the KKK I don't think even a dozen people show up to their rallies so what .

A similar petition for the dems has all law enforcement, secret service and personal security details being disarmed at their convention, since guns are icky.

42,000 Sign Petition to Allow Republicans to Bring Guns to G.O.P. Convention
It may have been created in jest, but the conservatives in favor of open-carry laws are deadly serious
Tina Nguyen

With the potential for a convoluted, multi-round fight to determine its presidential nominee (and the threat of riots if Donald Trump loses), this summer’s Republican National Convention is shaping up to be a historic, if not historically messy, spectacle. As if to make matters worse for a party that is already trying to fend off Trump’s takeover bid, the G.O.P must now contend with a new petition that calls for attendees, already in a high-pressure environment, to be allowed to “recognize our constitutional right to open carry firearms at the Republican National Convention at the Quicken Loans Arena in July 2016.”

More than 42,000 people have signed the petition, which appeared on last week and originally set a goal of just 5,000 signatures. Signatories are asking the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, the R.N.C.’s convention venue, to override its no-gun policies and allow attendees to open-carry approved weapons. While people are legally allowed to openly carry firearms in Ohio, the stadium itself does not allow guns inside. Security protocols for the presidential candidates, who are protected by the Secret Service, would also likely prohibit attendees from bringing weapons within their proximity.

But people supporting the petition, begun by someone listing his or her name as “N.A.,” according to USA Today, and backed by a group that the Akron Beacon Journal has found no evidence of outside the petition itself, argue it would be dangerous not to allow guns inside the venue. “This is a direct affront to the Second Amendment and puts all attendees at risk,” he or she writes, citing the National Rifle Association’s belief that gun-free zones are “the worst and most dangerous of all lies.” Without people openly showing off their guns, N.A. argues, attendees will be vulnerable to a terrorist attack or even the people of Cleveland, a city “consistently ranked as one of the top ten most dangerous cities in America."

It's possible that the petition began as a prank, judging by the Twitter account allegedly run by the petition’s creator, who describes him or herself as “speaking truth to stupid.” Said troll seems to enjoy retweeting people who support the poll, if only to participate in the trolling itself...
But the argument underlying the petition is deadly serious for many conservatives, whether or not its creator meant to mock them. Republican lawmakers have routinely decried gun-free zones as a risk, especially in the wake of mass shootings at U.S. schools and universities. In Texas, a new gun law requires people with concealed handgun permits to begin taking their firearms with them to college beginning August 1. Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Oregon, Utah, and Wisconsin also have laws on the books allowing concealed weapons on campus, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Donald Trump has often argued that the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris last November could have been prevented or mitigated if the victims had been armed.

Asked Sunday on ABC’s This Week about allowing convention attendees to bring guns, Trump told host Jon Karl that while he hadn’t read the petition, “I want to see what it says [and] read the fine print” before making a statement.

“I’m a very, very strong person for Second Amendment. I think very few people are stronger. And I have to see the petition,” Trump, known for accidentally accepting support from Klan members and fascists, said.

The ISM Non-Manufacturing Index Rose to 55.7 in April To view this article, Click Here
Brian S. Wesbury, Chief Economist
Robert Stein, Deputy Chief Economist
Date: 5/4/2016

The ISM non-manufacturing index rose to 55.7 in April from 54.5 in March, coming in above the consensus expected 54.8. (Levels above 50 signal expansion; levels below 50 signal contraction.)

The major measures of activity were mostly higher in March, and all stand above 50, signaling expansion. The new orders index rose to 59.9 from 56.7 while the employment index increased to 53.0 from 50.3 in March. The supplier deliveries index remained unchanged at 51.0, and the business activity index declined to 58.8 from 59.8.

The prices paid index increased to 53.4 in April from 49.1 in March.

Implications: Service sector activity picked up in April at the fastest pace of 2016. Among the eighteen industries that the ISM surveys, thirteen reported growth in April, while just four - including mining and transportation - reported contraction. Service sector activity has now grown for 75 consecutive months, and continued strength in both new orders and business activity show positive signs for the months ahead. The new orders index, a signal of how business activity and employment are likely to move in coming months to fill demand, rose to 59.9, the highest reading in six months. Meanwhile the business activity index declined one point to a still robust 58.8. Taken together, growth prospects remain positive with no sign of a recession. On the inflation front, the prices paid index broke above 50 in April, coming in at 53.4 as rising prices for metals and fuels more than offset declining prices for beef, eggs, and natural gas. The employment index ticked higher in April, rising to 53.0 from 50.3 in March. In both 2014 and 2015, the pace of service sector growth slowed (but still showed growth) in the first quarter before picking up through the remainder of the year, and today’s report suggests this trend may continue in 2016. In other news this morning, the ADP index, which measures private-sector payrolls, increased 156,000 in April. We are waiting on tomorrow’s initial claims data for a final estimate, but plugging the ADP figures into our models suggests Friday's official report on nonfarm payrolls will show a gain north of 200,000, another solid month. In other recent news, consumers continue to flock to auto dealerships, with cars and light trucks selling at a 17.4 million annual rate in April, up 5.1% from March and up 4.0% from a year ago.

DDF you make my point. 

Not that I disagree with you.

Immigration is very important to you and me.  It was a big reason to be on Trump's side.  But for me it is not an issue that makes it all or none for the Presidency for me.
I don't want the whole ship to go down because of it.  Too many other important things at stake.  I Trump personality is a big issue I cannot ignore or approve of.

I am not willing to play Russian Roulette with the future of this great country.  At this point in my view is to support Trump and HELP him do all the right things, as much as we can and as much as he will let us.  Many who know states he does listen........

"I don't know if it is too late to be strong on immigration. "

I know what my answer is...  It's never too late and if you're letting someone tell you it is, those people need to go. Just the way it is. Oddly, you never hear these types of things happening in other more colourful countries, because they'll kill you or deport you....take your pick. The US should be no different.

"Having him is like playing Russian Roulette.  Sooner or later the gun will go off. "

I'm ok with that.

In my very humble opinion now is NOT the time for conservatives to turn away from Trump.  Some posting just the opposite - that now is the time to distinguish conservatism from Trump.

I think the best thing IS engagement between Trump and conservatives.  That is the only way we can influence his thought and moving forward.  We may be able to influence him.  We know we will not influence the uncompromising left.

Time to rally around the party's leader  (what a weird thought - Trump!?!?%#!*@) boys.

And what is her fix for the coal miners whom she wants to put out of business?  A tax payer program policy.  What a surprise.  The answer to everything is some leftist matriarchal program funded by you and me. 

Same old leftist crap.
