    oznabrag says or thinks -
    The President said that he would sign the bills that would have kept the government open.

    The bills were presented for his signature, and he refused to sign them.
    What Bills.? Are you saying bills were passed in the senate and sent to the preident's desk to be signed ?

    If so when did this happen ?

    If you;re going to quote me, quote the whole sentence please: There is no security crisis on the Mexican border, any more than there was for the first two years of Trump's presidency or the 20 years before that. He's making up stuff to get people like you excite and secure your support, and you've swallowed it whole.

    Hey Keith, your chart doesn't show 2017 and 2018....

    It also looks like there has been a problem since the early 70's that has now come to a head..Too many politicians ignored the problem so as to not rock the boat.

    We will agree on that.

    Nope. He wants the wall because he needs to fulfill a campaign promise.

    If we agree that it was Trump who shut it down, then he can open it up, whenever he wants.

    Just long enough, until the Republican senator's fear of being primaried from the right (if they cave) is LESS than their fear of being pilloried by their constituents, who will very soon be feeling the effects of the shutdown.

    Wrong. It wasn't Pelosi and Schumer who walked out of the last negotiation, because they didn't get EVERYTHING they wanted... it was Trump.

    Because this has NOTHING to do with the 'welfare of the people and the nation'. You're not a stupid person, so don't insult us by pretending that you're not aware of the bald-faced LIES Trump has been telling, about the faux 'emergency'.

    Quote Originally Posted by RonW View Post

    Do you ACTUALLY think that Trump is enlarging his base by his petty, vindictive, and narcissistic attempt to be a tyrant?

    Quote Originally Posted by RonW View Post

    He can TRY his 'national emergency' gambit... but it will open up a HUGE can of worms, in the courts. Presidents may have the authority to declare a national emergency... but they DON'T have the authority to falsely claim a national emergency, for political reasons.

    Quote Originally Posted by RonW View Post

    We will.... when we no longer have one of Putin's stooges sitting in the oval office. Until then, Trump appears to be doing everything possible to make Putin happy... and you think that is defending the nation?

    I posted a better chart, it now shows '17, as well as the number of agents along the border. Here are the latest figures for '18. There has been no increase. You're being deceived.

    I find it amazing that all it took to overcome the checks and balances in the US constitution was a shameless liar - and how lying has just become entirely normal behaviour for the legions of followers.

    That's key. It didn't just take a liar, it took a liar and about 63 million enablers.

    I have a solution: TRump should start a GoFundMe account so people like RonW who support the idea of a wall on the entire southern border can contribute money to finance its construction. And at some point in the future Mexico can reimburse them.

    Yeah, that gets a SMOGRAS rating of at least 3.5, maybe 4.

    (I was thinking linear, but the scale may end up having to be logarithmic as Turnip's preznitcy worsens.)

    What are you doing about it?

    The dems can walk away with the presidency in 2020, as they could have when they lost to Trump. There are a lot of reasonable candidates between Cortez and Pelosi and who can move to the middle. But they will need to be nimble enough to change their tactics. No sign of that yet.

    If Turnip and his water-carriers continue the course the course they've charted for two years, the Democratic Party could run a bucket of warm sick and win.

    What are you doing about it?

    Love to believe that, but the Dem party can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with the best of 'em.

    Why are you trying to steal Trumps credit? He said he would be proud to shut the government down and he sure hasn't done anything else to be proud of, so why try to give his only victory to the Democrats?

    Clicking on the link shows much detail about the shutdown. Doesn't show the right wing twisted spin blaming it on "Schumer and Pelosi. Maybe you didn't read it yourself.
