So how quickly can congress piece together legislation that would tap the GoFundMe campaign to fund the wall?

It could be ground-breaking legislation, opening new avenues of gov't funding!

Liberals could fund Obamacare and entitlements, while conservatives fund the wall.

Businesses could fund infrastructure projects .... i.e. Transportation.

Well, if that gofundme keeps up at the same pace of donations congress has approximately 52 years to figure it out.

Which, of course means, It isn't my fault... it's someone else's fault.

By "TrumpScum" do you mean the cronies and yes-men that are trying to stick to him?
Yes - but the depth of the swamp also allows them to survive.

I got nothing to defend this man. He lost Mattis. Not much else I can do for him now.

I just read on the internet that Donald Trump is holed up in the Oval Office with his wife Melinda with donuts pointed at her temple.

I just read that.

It's lonely at the top, especially when "you" treat people around you like crap.

But in one sign that the festive spirit can triumph over Washington's humbug, the National Parks Service announced the reopening of the National Christmas Tree, thanks to support from the National Park Foundation -- a group of philanthropic organizations and donors.

Didn't someone say they should put up billboards and rent out space on the wall as a means to pay for it?
Maybe an expanse sponsored by an art foundation:

The National park visitation generates $32 billion for the U.S. economy and supports nearly 300,000 none government jobs (2015 numbers).

As of 2016, the National Park Service has an annual budget of about $3 billion.

Ultimately the NPS is a money making operation that is typically undermined by the federal budget process.... essentially robbed to help pay the rest of the government.

Shutting down the NPS is f__king idiotic.

Does this mean another president will have to come behind the Maga president to make America great again again?

Since the present president didn't MAGA (i.e. isn't a real Maga president) the answer to your question would have to be:

"NO. Another president will have to come behind President I wish I was a MOB boss and try to make America good again (the "great" thing is at best 50 to 100 years way... at best)."

Of course it will be hard for the next president.

He/she will have to repair the damage to international relationships (including with our allies), build trust with our military, try to unite a divided country, entice both political parties to view cooperation & compromise as good things, stop paying attention to dumb media outlets (especially FoxNews & Brietbart), but not be duped by other dumb media outlets like MSNBC... repair the damage and re-build trust between the president & the DOJ... and with our 17 Intelligence agencies... etc... etc...

It is a lot to ask of one president, but perhaps the next one will at least start things in the right direction.

If he/she doest these things, or at least gets the USA moving in the right direction, he/she might even be considered the greatest president in modern history... not likely, but maybe.

I think I heard Trump say "It doesn't have to be a wall. It could be a fence, or some kind of barrier...."

So some rough math
10 million ft border
300ft / roll (35k rolls)
At Gov't rates, we'll make it $10 / roll

$350K

Problem Solved!!
