Oh no!!!! Five cents? Five whole cents?!!!

Five cents

Yup. You read that right. In an effort to cast aspersions on President Trump using tariffs against Mexico to curtail illegal immigration, CNN Business reported yesterday that these tariffs would force Chipotle to raise the price of burritos by five cents.

I know!

Five whole cents!

Why, we can’t be forced to pay five cents more for a burrito! That’s, well, that’s just like Hitler!!!

I mean, sure.  Illegal immigration cost this country $116 Billion in 2017.

But come on!  That’s nothing.  Big whoop!

Don’t you realize that by forcing Mexico to stop the population of Central America from trudging across its soil to enter our country illegally might cost you five cents more for a burrito at Chipotle?!

We can’t stand for that!

President Trump must be some kind of dictator-authoritarian-just like Hitler monster for making us pay five cents more for a burrito just so we can save a measly one hundred and sixteen billion dollars a year!

You know how many nickels are in $116 Billion?  Two trillion, three hundred and twenty billion.

That’s right.  Illegal immigration is costing Americans two trillion, three hundred and twenty billion nickels every year.

If the best CNN can come up with to terrorize Americans into keeping our border a sieve is paying five cents more for a friggin’ burrito, they must think we’re blithering idiots.

Look, we know why they’re fearmongering over these tariffs. It doesn’t take a genius to figure it out.

These tariffs just might get Mexico to stop illegals from traipsing across their country into ours.

And the last thing these sneering elitists want is for President Trump to succeed in stopping illegals from flooding our country.

They want him to fail.  But more importantly, they want the country to fail.

That’s why they love that the Democrats in Congress won’t take the crisis at the border seriously.

It isn’t that they don’t think it’s a crisis.  They know it is.

But it’s a crisis that works to their advantage.

It works to Mexico’s advantage too.

Mexico gains financially from our porous border.  So by imposing a tariff, President Trump is hitting Mexico where it hurts.

You gotta admit, what Trump is doing is a genius move.

And as Jesse Kelly said last week:

”There is no way Donald Trump is going to get help securing the Southern border from a broken, horrifically corrupt government full of criminals who’d rather take bribes than do something for the good of their country.

”So I see why he turned to Mexico instead.”

But howling like wounded poodles over a Chipotle burrito costing five cents more seems like a profoundly stupid way to try and turn public opinion away from securing our border.

    As with the bulk of your postings , this one I found particularly informative and put forth with the type of humour ( Canadian , eh ! ) I like to utilize in order to muddle thru all this nonsense that goes on , not only both sides of our border , but the entire western civilization …
    Always looking forward to stopping in with my morning coffees.

    Never went to Chipotle. Have an aversion to roaches and dead things in my food.

    Pretty sure Chipotle does not import anything it serves in a burrito from Mexico, with the exception of perhaps avocados. But who am I to question the wealth of truth that is CNN?

    Mexico could turn into the wall that President Trump wants.

  • June 5, 2019 at 9:52 am

    I never have, never will eat at that crap place. Finish our wall.

    We could just give Chipotle wooden nickels.

    It’s like grand pappy used to say; “There’s dumb, and there’s democrats. Stay away from democrats!”

    Save your money and don’t go to chipotle. They lobby against your 2a rights anyway…

      If they don’t want guns on their property it’s their right. If the businessisn’t properly signed they may ask you to leave, also their right, you politely leave and there isn’t anything they can legally do to you.

      Besides, their sensible request was for the idiots who show off their fake machismo stupidly. I have carried lawfully concealed in many of their stores fully loaded to use if necessary. Why do you feel the necessity to advertise your open carry and make yourself the first target of opportunity?

      If you don’t like the way they rightfully to run their business you don’t have to go there. They won’t mind and neither will I.

      Frankly nutcases like you give the rest of us gun owners a bad name and you are worse than those who are afraid of guns and why many of our citizenry want to alter the 2nd Amendment.

      I’ve carried lawfully concealed for well over 20 years and never had a problem. Even have had to upholster a couple of times with a positive outcome and while I do hold a title of expert marksman I am not tied to law enforcement in any way.

      So I ask you, what is your problem?

    In their defense ,they are a bunch of morons.

    In recent years, with the number of times the local Board of Health has closed various Chipotle’s throughout the US, it seems that not eating there would be safer and save you money besides, at least that is the conclusion I came to a few years back.
