Why didnít the GOP give their dear leader with the best words a wall already?

And now the cowards wonít even advance a bill they already agreed to because little Donnie will throw another tantrum.

It works until the cheese ones get a 50 dollar angle grinder and cut through to the carmel side in 10 minutes. The carmel ones are actually paying for the angle grinder from their insatiable appetite for yellow cheese powder which they buy by the ton. They also hand out free carmel treats for life once the cheese kernels breech the wall.

Since everyone knows all the Swiss butter ones are armed to the teeth and there's nothing to be gained there, nobody bothers them.

it can be said that every driver in california has exceeded the speed limit at some point in time

since everyone is guilty

why does anybody get a speeding citation

A friend, much more versed in bureaucracy, told me they don't write tons of tickets because they actually loose money on writing people up, and that the only way they could make a profit off of ticketing would be to have direct access to the offenders bank account. Kray Kray times.

Yeah, this is exactly how someone with nothing to hide behaves.

President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladi≠mir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

Trump and GOP taking messaging hit on shutdown
New polls indicate the American public is putting the brunt of the blame on Republicans.
By MARIANNE LEVINE and JOHN BRESNAHAN 01/13/2019 10:27 AM EST Updated 01/13/2019 12:36 PM EST
https://www.politico.com/story/2019/01/13/government-shutdown-republicans-trump-1098723

President Donald Trump and Republicans are losing the messaging war on the government shutdown.

The shutdown is now the longest in U.S. history, entering its 23rd day, and there appears to be no end in sight. As Trump repeatedly declares he won't reopen the government unless he gets funding for his border wall, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) are adamant that they will not fund the project.

Trumpís message on the shutdown ó blaming Democrats for refusing to concede on his border wall ó isn't convincing the American public. Instead, the majority of Americans think Trump and Republicans are at fault for the shutdown, according to two new polls. A Washington Post-ABC News found that 53 percent of respondents blamed Trump and Republicans in Congress for the shutdown, while 29 percent blamed Democrats. Thirteen percent of respondents said both sides were equally to blame.

Another poll from CNN found that 55 percent of respondents blamed Trump, while 32 percent blamed Democrats. Nine percent blamed both sides.

Trump's disapproval ratings are also rising, with the CNN poll showing his overall rating getting worse by 5 percentage points since the shutdown started.

Support for the wall is increasing. Still less than half. But support is 42 percent, up 8 points from a year ago.

So, if Trump got the 5 billion from Mexico you guys would be okay with him building the wall? That seems to be what some of you are saying.

I doubt it would truly help the immigration issue, but if Trump wants to find the $$ somewhere other that the US coffers to fulfill his campaign promise, that's fine with me.

Will you take issue with all the private land that will have to be claimed through eminent domain in order to build it?

So, it IS about the money. If that is the case, then start slicing the pork from the wishlists of the Democrats that are opposing the wall. I guarantee you THAT amount dwarfs $5 billion.

As far as eminent domain, I hadn't really thought about that. But at first glance, it doesn't seem like the amount of land taken would be all that much.
