This is bigotry. Pure and simple.

Yet, you have the nerve to call people bigots for wanting others to be held accountable to the same laws they and their family are held.

Hypocrites

Airports are a perfect example of where the government don't belong to begin with. Security should be paid for by the Airports and airlines, NOT the taxpayer.

Also, what about those private sector jobs? Did Trump forbid these poor,poor people from finding other work?

I'm explaining this **** to my flatmate, a Polish immigrant. Guy is in awe of the idea that one guy can shut down a government just because he isn't getting some border wall.

To be honest, I am too.

Says America sounds a lot like Poland.

This.

2p2 definitely helps me maintain my sanity since I get all the news and tweets filtered through an intermediary rather than direct from the source.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

So we will be shutting down again on February 8th

This is just to ease the pressure of no paychecks and to have a chance to spin the next shutdown as demís fault.

If he gets a wall in the next 3 weeks or they cave in the next shutdown then he will be vindicated and will hostage take every shutdown opportunity.

If they donít cave, then march and April will be shutdown months and weíll have a new record for longest shutdown

They won't shut it down again. They'll quietly pass whatever is needed while they create some new outrage to distract the goldfish memories. He just doesn't want to admit total defeat right now.

Of course if Ann Coulter goes on a rampage maybe he does shut it down again. Has anyone consulted with her on this? Is she cool with it?

Very few TD posters are being critical. They think this is just a way to make democrats look bad again. The blind faith cult following thing is just astonishing.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

This morning, Chiefsplanet was gravely concerned about Democrats voting down a bill that would have paid federal workers.

Strangely now that Trump has announced a deal to pay federal workers, they don't seem elated.
