Does Pelosi actually have the power to postpone the State of the Union?

The forest for the trees...

The major takeaway from this shutdown should be that so many working people do not have enough saved for a month's rent or mortgage payment. The shutdown has exposed this country's dirty little secret and it is a time bomb.

Another problem for workers in this shutdown...

Many probably have direct deposit of their paychecks and have monthly bills automatically deducted from their checking accounts. So in addition to being unable to pay their bills, they are going to face overdraft penalties adding insult to injury.

My two very dear friends, both Republicans,

raised the subject if Trump tonight. We have a pact that we will not talk about politics but tonight, they raised the subject of Trumps Oval Office speech. Neither of them follow politics, usually. One asked me if I watched the speech, I said no, I just couldn't, I listened to it. She then told me that Trump was a horrible man, as if I would be shocked by that concept. The other remarked about Trump's appearance, his staring into the camera and reading from the teleprompter and, as she put it, breathing heavy. Both told me that they thought the country was in real danger from this man, as if this would be a new concept to me.

I think I should get some kind of an award for not reminding them who they voted for in 2016, don't you?

If he's lost these two ladies, who are like canaries in the mine, he's dog meat.

Is Trump the Lord of the Flies and his administration

the boys on the island?

Eminent Domain

" the right of a government or its agent to expropriate private property for public use, with payment of compensation."

So, someone must have clued Trump in about this and the years and dollars it will take to acquire all the land needed for his precious wall. I suspect that is one of the reasons he is talking about a "State of Emergency" at the southern border.

The fact is that he knows, his people know and Congress knows that this wall thing is a farce. But they'll take peoples' land, give them shit in compensation, and never build the damn wall.

I'm waiting for the Trump supporting land owners in the path of this wall wake up and realize that they're screwed if Trump gets his way.

Maybe the Dems should go back to DC.

I think it looks terrible that everyone went home. Couldn't the Dems return to their seats in Congress and demand action? I know it may be an empty action but the Dems being home enjoying their break like the Republicans looks awful to me.

Who advised Trump to withdraw from Syria? Mattis didn't, Bolton didn't,

the Joint Chiefs didn't, the SoS and the new CoS didn't. Who, besides Putin, is he listening to?

We are now going to find out how really insane

this man who pretends to be our president is. He's tired of fooling around with the wall and his "fake news" witch hunt" mantras are not working so he's really going to get our attention by fucking the globe. This is the stuff of nightmares.

If I were the judge in the Flynn case

I'd throw the book at him. The guy has sucked of the public tit for decades and has violated his oath to us. It would also send a message to other so-called "cooperating" witnesses.
