Yup. Fortunately, a couple annual fees - religious school tuition and a building fund - will drop off within the next few years.

And the Bat Mitzvah ain't cheap (though we're not going balls-to-the-wall like a lot of people in my area do).

I think that is just routine and most presidents have been considered for removal due to mental incapacity by federal law enforcement.

This is probably similar to his reason for loving fast food: they're regularly checked and tested so you know they're clean and safe.

What the heck is McCabe up to? His timing sucks to be talking about 25th and FBI reaction to Comey firing.

Reminder: the FBI is not our friend and is overflowing with right wing jerkoffs whose only problem with Trump is his demeanor.

I mean, wake me up when one of these douchebags actually does something when they still have the power to do something.

Watching him discover and explore and want to know more about the world HAS to be more rewarding than filling your kid's head with a bunch of garbage and watching them repeat it back to you with no congitive thought.
You sound like a very cool dad.

McConnell Says Trump Plans to Declare National Emergency to Build Border Wall
Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, announced on Thursday that President Trump planned to declare a national emergency so he can bypass Congress and build his long-promised wall along the southwestern border.

That raised the prospect of a constitutional clash with lawmakers over who controls the federal purse.

Mr. McConnell said the president would take action after signing a bill to keep the government open but not fund his wall.

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

Trump to sign border deal averting shutdown, declare emergency in pursuit of wall funding, McConnell says
"Sure, yeah," McConnell told reporters Thursday morning when asked if he has the votes to pass the legislation later in the day.

Asked if he’s received definitive assurances from the White House, McConnell said: “They’re reviewing it, as they should. . . . I’m hopeful he’ll sign it.”

The Senate is aiming to vote on the 1,159-page bill Thursday afternoon, and the House is expected to follow Thursday evening. The legislation would fund nine Cabinet departments and dozens of other agencies through Sept. 30, removing — for now — the threat of another government shutdown and political brinkmanship over Trump’s demands to fund a U.S.-Mexico border wall.

The compromise provides $1.375 billion for 55 miles of new fences along the border in Texas, far short of the $5.7 billion Trump had sought for 234 miles of steel walls. The final number for border barriers is also less than deals that were on the table last year before Trump pushed the government into a record-long 35-day shutdown in an unsuccessful attempt to get all the wall money he wants.

...

In an unusual incident as the Senate came into session Thursday morning, Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) — who was presiding — amended the chaplain’s opening prayer to offer his own plea.

“Let’s all pray that the president will have wisdom to sign the bill so government doesn’t shut down,” Grassley said from the chair, a rare breach of Senate decorum that reflected the depth of lawmakers’ angst over the events of recent months.

...

“The agreement is a reasonable compromise. It provides additional funding for smart, effective border security. It does not fund the president’s wall, but it does fund smart border security initiatives that both parties have always supported,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on the Senate floor. “Most importantly, it will keep our government open.”

Kinda weird that Mitch would announce that publicly.

I would have thought Trump would want to save the huge announcement for himself.

President Harris:

"While a national health care system that benefits all Americans is critically important, we must only do so in a bipartisan manner. We cannot stoop to the level of those that seek to oppose us."

In 2024, President Junior:

"EMERGENCY: OPEN SEASON ON ALL ANIMALS! HUNT MURDER KILL!"
