The other day I was talking to a traditionally GOP/Trump fan, and this subject came up.
He actually said "All over his stupid wall!"
.. I was floored!

And we went on to comment how all this BS drowned out an actual success with the bi-partisan Fed Prison Reform bill ....

So Trump told us yesterday that today at 3:00 PM EST he is going to make an offer on border security to congress.

This morning the H.R. is pushing $1 Billion for border security...so whatever his offer is they either beat him to the punch or told him in advance that his plan doesn't matter.

Looks like Pelosi just trumped Trump... again.

I'm getting a kick out of the so called tit for tat between Pelosi and Trump.

My Trump loving friends were pissed at Pelosi for being "childish" but they love Trump for acting the same way.

The irony of that is hilarious.

I for one love that fact that our president, arguable the most powerful man on planet earth, every day acts like Britney Spears on a bad day...we white men have evolved so much....



I have started using Trumps Tweets to 'fact check' some of the news medias articles about him. I mean geeze, sometimes ya just gotta get it straight from the horses key board , it' unbelievable that a grown man could actually be so childish .
It's obvious he's no politician , I think his next business venture should a collage for up and coming politicians . It could be called class 101 'learn how to be a lying liar'.

I sure hope Pelosi doesn't invite him (or rescinds invitiation) for SOTU.

So far, she's only asked he considers it, but as I understand it she actually controls it.

Take away one of his opportunities to bathe in the glory of a crowd. - even if only half of them adore him.

I am an avid reader of Trump's tweets and watcher of any of his live speeches/interviews.

He own words undermine virtually every argument in support of him.

In the future people will probably look back at his tweets and videos and think that Trump was a TV show parody of politics... or that 21st Century Americans were complete idiots... or both.

Breaking: Tf***s offer is DACA for the Wall
... I don't trust them

Of course dems could find ways to defund the wall as the gpugs did with Obamacare.

Well anyone who watched this and paid any attention at all now knows that Trump is NOT planing to build a wall.

He wants $5.XX billion of our tax dollars to pay for a 250 mile (give or take a few miles) see through steel barrier that is NOT going across the entire border and is NOT going from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico...

And for those of you who hate Bush and/or Obama... Bush signed legislation, which was supported by Obama, that resulted in roughly 700 miles of fencing (i.e. a see through steel barrier ).

I can build the wall cheaper. And I'll show you the math:

(1) 2-point lego brick = 15.8mm = 9.81766e-6 miles
1 lego block / 9.81766e-6 miles = 101857.27 lego blocks / mile

We'll use the 4-point brick.


1954 miles on Mexican boarder
(Rounding)
51k bricks/mile * 2000 miles = 102 m bricks
0.104 per piece avg
$10m per layer.
Figure at least 3 layers high - $30m !!

This is how out of touch much of our gov't is:

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross says he doesn't "really quite understand why" federal workers who have missed paychecks due to the partial government shutdown don't just take out loans to cover the gap.
...
The comments from the commerce secretary came after a senior economic adviser to President Donald Trump compared the shutdown to a vacation.
