I guess the bigger question is, "In a sane country, a lunatic wouldn't have been given all this power. So how do you fix a country willing to vote for a lunatic, and how do you fix a political party willing to indulge that same lunatic?"

None of this would be happening in the first place if reason and sanity had prevailed in the country as a whole. Trump didn't take the Presidency, it was given to him by voters and the Republican party.
Yeah, this actually is the problem. I came into work and overheard a couple of my GOP co-workers ranting about "The big media stations all being run by Democrats" which I can only assume was their answer to why Trump's speech isn't being well covered or maybe why Schumer/Pelosi were allowed to respond (they know better than to talk to me about that stuff) but the bottom line is they're working without being paid just like I am but they clearly don't blame Trump for this. They just sit in their offices all day being spoon-fed hatred by Fox and eating up whatever they and Trump tells them to believe. I can walk by one of their offices right now and there's a 90% chance of some bullshit concern trolling story on right now about the "border crisis" like there has been every day since the shutdown began.

Jesus, these both sides arguments. The government was going to stay open until Trump decided that he wasn't going to accept the bipartisan bill. Therefore he is 100% at fault.

Arguing it's the Democrats fault as well is like arguing that when somebody is robbed, it's actually their own fault too because they could have just given their stuff away willingly instead of by force.
CP24 was reporting it as the dems fault for not funding Trump's wall. The little word crawl at the bottom of the screen. Fucking smh.

Please leave the Muppets out of this. They're just trying to make an honest living, and tend to speak eloquently. Even Animal.

More than facts, the idea is to play with Trump fear of muslims, although on second thought, he would maybe came out with an even dumber or dangerous idea
Ok, here is the thing:

This isn't about immigration or racism or any of that for Trump. That's just his excuse.

This is about building some massive national monument to "Trump," something to rival Mt. Rushmore in his mind. It's sort of what he's been building towards his whole life.

This is all about Ego.

For a while now I've been speculating that Trump's obsession with "walls" might be in part due to how he views Israeli's "wall" (i.e., the largest open air prison on Earth surrounding Gaza) and actually now said it out-loud.


This also makes sense to me why he was suggesting actually shooting migrant border crossers if they threw rocks. Which is what happened to many Palestinians regardless if they threw rocks or not. Trump is as wanna-be ruthless as Bibi. The U.S. has enough darkness in its past for the treatment and rounding up of Native Americans and others throughout its past.

Besides that, 'walls' also have the side affect of further endangering animal species as well; cutting of their territory and just expecting them to adapt to our human issues.

Speeches work, though, fellas. I have encountered 3 people today who said, "well, Trump said that people were getting through and murdering people and heroin is coming in. Maybe we do need a wall..."

I had to patiently explain why everything Trump said was a lie. They trust me, so they were swayed back to reality, but it is a little disheartening that the President Shitbag can just lie and insinuate other things and people will believe him, just because he is the president.

That's the ultimate power of his authority. To persuade without empirical evidence.

He constantly talks about "deal making" and how Dems have to "make a deal" with him yet he offers absolutely nothing. The "deal" is "Give me everything I want or the government is closed".

"It worked then, and it works better now"


That is such a colossally stupid thing to say that every network that aired it should have cut to a test pattern. How do walls work better now than hundreds years ago? Hundreds of years ago people didn't have drones and planes to fly over a wall, or power tools to quickly destroy it or dig underneath. Republicans are still standing behind this dumb fuckface. An entire party full of lobotomized shiteaters.

This is going to be a real test of the average American's IQ. We're now going to see, as the shutdown persists, how many believe Trump and Fox, and how many actually have critical thinking skills. It wouldn't surprise me if there's gun-related violence to this as, sometime down the line, angry Trump supporters start shooting places up to force the Democrats to open the government, because they believe they're shutting down the government, not Trump.

Lol honestly the same thought crossed my mind when I read that. The Muppets want literally nothing other than to make people happy. That is their core reason for existing, without it they become depressed recluses. Trump has absolutely nothing in common with Muppets at all.

Actual shocking footage of an illegal immigrant caravan taking down an ICE car on their way through the border.

I enjoyed this cartoon from Bruce MacKinnon today.

Far, far too generous
