New Political Sin

By Rob Holston, Jr


July 06, 2018
Friday PM

I just saw a liberal law maker being interviewed on a liberal TV network. She said “We need a Supreme Court Justice who will fairly interpret and uphold the law of the land.” I can only take that to mean…..”Abide by the law of the land.” “Don’t dilute the law of the land.” It sounds a bit like “zero tolerance policy" to me.

Trump is a scoundrel when he upholds the “law of the land” regarding illegal immigration. "Zero Tolerance” seems to be the new Political Sin now days. If I were a bank robber I would certainly like to know what banks don’t have a Zero Tolerance policy for getting robbed. Maybe I could hit a bank with a 40% Tolerance policy…… that would increase my chances.
