Holy shit that’s awesome. Pelosi still sucks, though.
Pelosi just keeps on giving, man she's awesome!
That zinger shits all over Trump's [CROOKED HILLARY / JEFF FLAKEY / CRAZY BERNIE] 5-year old playground insults.
“An image that’s being passed off as a nude of congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was debunked as being fake by a foot fetishist on Reddit—because that’s the future we’re living in now....
I asked jokes_on_you how they spotted the difference. "I’ve sucked enough toes in my life to recognize when something doesn’t look right," they told me in a Reddit direct message. "Because we can’t dorsi- or plantarflex our 2nd-5th toes independently I knew it wasn’t a matter of the toe being bent. I thought that maybe she has some form of brachydactyly but her Wikifeet page has clear evidence to the contrary. So it was clear to me that it wasn’t her feet."
I hope Pelosi hasn't let her 2HB skill lapse, Trump has surprisingly high AC.
I'm just checking on this...Dems will let the government be shut down as long as trump will just because of .03% of the federal budget. No foresight in being the heroes by getting people back to work and smearing the shit out of the GOP? Why are nearly a million families OK to fuck with by both sides reasoning?
That is the most retarded TRUTH IS IN DA MIDDAL reasoning I've ever read. The point of holding out is so as not to encourage Dr. Dumbfuck. to basically pass any sort of fuckery he desires at all, by showing you are completely spineless. When 70ish% of the population does NOT believe govt. should be shut down for a wall, you don't say "oh, okay we'll cave because you're catering to your 30%".
House Democrats have voted to open the government, along with 8 house republicans -- not sure what you mean by "let the government be shut down"?
It's Republicans in the senate aren't allowing on a vote to keep it open, because Trump wants money for the wall.
Do you think it's appropriate to negotiate for money for the wall while keeping the government shut down?
supposing the Dems caved, i have trouble seeing them effectively selling the 'smear the shit out of the GOP' part of this in contemporary american politics, which leads me to think it would mostly just encourage more of the same behavior
I'm saying that the longer it goes on, it won't matter to those families who is to blame. Someone has to be the adult, get folks back to work and then deal with politics later. I'm not seeing the point on either side but who is the peoples party and who is the baby?
as one of the people who may not get paid as a result of the shutdown, i understand what you're saying, but it's not as if conceding the issue is costless, either. if that precedent just leads to more do-what-i-want-or-i-shut-the-government-down temper tantrums in the future, that could very well be much worse in the long-term
Thanks for the weigh in Agrul...I would always put people first before politics so this is problematic. I really don't care about the ask if no one is negotiating on a small issue like this (tiny amount of money). Trump is unreasonable, trump is a lunatic. Don't participate in the lunacy...make it right and pursue. Is Mueller not going to do things? Are the Dems in the house not going to do things? Should folks in the general public suffer for a political point that may be moot? I know there are ways for them to challenge everything about Trump's ask on the wall even if they approve it or SAY they agree to approve it.
Look at it from a personal perspective. How would you feel if you were homeless because of a nothingburger expense that could be caught up in litigation longer than the President exists?
You can toss the orange fat fuck into the guillotine and everything would be back to normal.
I'd be frustrated at the president (and GOP) who are responsible for the shutdown, especially since it's based on a failed promise and fearmongering.
There's no false equivalency option here. McConnell just blocked Democrats' move to reopen the government.
I hope people do get mad, though, and I hope the Dems don't cave an inch in stonewalling our manbaby-in-chief. The best part about this is that it's going to force some of his supporters to take off their blinders and actually hold him accountable.
Bunch of cucks in here
yeah we definitely are not opening the government with a wall
that sucks you are not being paid, THATS POLITICS
in fact you should probably kill a republican out of hunger and anger
"...always put people first before politics so this is problematic. I really don't care about the ask if no one is negotiating on a small issue like this (tiny amount of money)."
You would never say this if democrats did the same reckless shit for their initiatives, try arguing in good faith next time.
