In Iowa, at a Tama County Republican forum Monday, six candidates for the GOP nomination mixed it up. On Immigration, one candidate, Pat Bertroche, an Urbandale physician, said, “I think we should catch ’em, ... and micro-chip them. I can micro-chip my dog so I can find it. Why can’t I micro-chip an illegal? “That’s not a popular thing to say, but it’s a lot cheaper than building a fence they can tunnel under."

It's better than my idea of cutting off a finger everytime you're caught. Might as well adopt some Sharia Laws

Give Donald Trump some credit: he might be a bigoted crypto-fascist who's taken the Republican Party to the right of Attila the Hun - but every once in a while he's 100 percent correct.

Case in point: his take on AT&T's proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner.
