Seeing her dodging around that interview question this morning on her going to Hawaii over Christmas and Trump staying in the white house was priceless. Fact is, she is so much like Trump they could be twins. DC plays on political soundbites. Truth be known, Americans could give to shits about that, they want results. If Trump changed his name from 'Wall' to 'Border security Act of 2019' the Government would re-open tomorrow. And folks, we'd have a wall.

The sad part is, while the right and the left are fighting, it's a show. They are two different faces on the same body with the same agenda. Though most americans don't give a shit, they have kids to neglect, netflix, credit cards to max out, and are too consumed with their Instagram to look at what's really goin on. It sucks that in most elections we have only two puppets to choose from and if a third party candidate jumps in with something real to say, then they're fuckt... and so are we.

Just heard Pelosi say "border security is suffering because of the shut down".

Well, since TSA, Border Patrol, Immigration and Coast Guard aren't getting paid, how long until they start walking off the job? Looks like TSA agents already are.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opini...mn/2467376002/

And "non-essentail" personnel aren't working - like the immigration courts.

You're right - they aren't making that crap up.

Another stroke of genius was Trump on CNN, interviewer asked whether Government was going to step in and offer security for the people not getting pay cheques and his answer was "Building the wall will make them more secure"
Fuck knows how it will pay their bills, though....

All of a sudden she cares about border security??
Yes it absolutely sucks for those people furloughed. However, accomplishments of importance are usually not without sacrfice.
I honestly don't know how Democrats can say anything with a straight face nowadays.

So first you say the statement that the shutdown was actually effecting border security was made up, now it's just about Pelosi...nice shift. (BTW - the Dems offered $1.3B in extra border security funding - just not to pay for "The Wall." Pence made the counter offer of $2.5B -- to which Trump said to fuck off. So, kind of hard to say they don't care about border security - they just don't care about the Wall de Trumpe)



And, how blithe of you to offer up border patrol agents' (et al.) salary as a sacrifice to Trump's vanity. Maybe you should quit your job and join a militia and patrol the border.

Go back and read what I actually wrote, slowly if needed. I said you COULDN"T make it up. That's an olde timey saying meaning it would be impossible to make up something so preposterous. And BTW, I have no problem with Trump staying steadfast with his requirement for funding. Trump was elected on putting America first and that is precisely what he is trying to do.

I do not really like Trump as a person but that doesn't mean everything he is trying to accomplish is bad, and that's what the Democrats can't get past. Calling out Trump for the exact things Obama did. Supporting things under Obama and now doing an about face just because its Trump. How is anyone supposed to take them seriously??

I wasn't offering up anyone's salary, but nice attempt at twisting that to fit your agenda. This notion the Democrats seem to have where nothing is worth doing if it causes a little sacrifice or hardship to anyone is ridiculous. It makes you wonder if our country really stands a chance against a foreign threat with Democrats is charge? How much would they allow us to be pushed around before they finally made the hard choices?

So, remember, the REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED Senate, with support from Dems, passed a budget measure that INCREASED border security spending (no wall though) by $1.3B.

Trump vetoed it because he couldn't get $5B for his wall (after saying he would sign without it), which will actually cost 5-6x that. Which means Dept of Homeland Security isn't funded. Which means the people in charge of protecting our borders aren't getting paid. You don't think that endangers our security?

Also remember: Last week, the Dem controlled House passed the SAME spending bill the Senate did, that Repubs supported in Dec, but now with NO Repub votes and the McConnell won't bring it up for a vote. The same spending bill that Repubs voted for overwhelmingly just 3 weeks prior. THAT is what is preposterous.

So who are the hypocrites: Dems or Repubs?

Clearly, you implied that the people being furloughed should happily bear the sacrifice..because, well, it's important. If you didn't mean that, then you misspoke - it wasn't me "twisting" your words.

Alrighty then. Just think if the shut down lasts long enough to created $5-10 billion in savings from unpaid employees, then T will want the wall more than ever.

Last President who built a wall, did it to house a family.

Appears she's made several moronic statements, but not the meme'd ones. Let's try to be accurate at least.
