Oh, Look! A song about Nancy Pelosi!

I'd say that's spot on!

This is what happens when you try to govern according to hate radio gurus.

I hope Trump learned his lesson. I don't think he learns lessons, but maybe in this case, he has seen that a radio show host is not someone that you should base government policies and Presidential actions on. Ann Coulter is not President.

Ann Coulter's pissed, too, at what she sees as Trump totally caving. Opening the govt without money for their wall.

He's rambling again. Women being bound up and can't breathe.

WTH? Gangstas. Women trafficking. Faces taped, bound. On and on and on and on.

The internet is the biggest problem for women trafficking. Those poor women...if only there were barriers! The women have no barriers to protect them!

On and on and on and on. Now he's recapping the horrors at the border last year.

This is what "drone" used to mean.

Make no mistake: End of shutdown was NOT for any reason than it's what's best for HIM.

Turtle's comments yesterday, coupled with a big hit to Trump's approval rating... caused Trump to move on the shutdown.

I think this extension of several weeks is EXACTLY like the bill that the House Democrats passed, which the Senate would not. Open the gov, extend the 2018 budget for a short while, enter negotiations on 2019 budget including border security.

Wanna bet that this will be like one of the bills the House Dems passed, but Senate wouldn't?

One bill: extend 2018 funding for a short while, while negotiations are ongoing. Open govt.

Sooooo...this is a GOOD day for Roger Stone, according to his definition of "good"!

it’s better to be infamous than never be famous at all. And, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.


This was a statement he made in the Netflix film, "Get Me Roger Stone." So about the time he was walking into the bldg hands and feet shackled, he must have been very happy that he was getting all that attention! Better than NO attention!

The whole world waits for him to be gone.

I wonder what it feels like. To know that the whole world is waiting for you to be gone. They don't care particularly how or why. Just gone.

A person who is not mentally ill would wake up to the fact that maybe something's gone wrong. Maybe he's not performing well. Maybe people hate him. But that would be a person who is not mentally disturbed.

Traveling Wilburys: And the walls came down...all the way to hell.

And the walls came down
All the way to hell.
Never saw them when they standin'
Never saw them when they fell.

He worked 64 hours this pay period. Here's what his pay stub looks like

He worked 64 hours this pay period. Here's what his pay stub looks like

Take, for instance, William Striffler, an air traffic controller at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey.
He gave CNN permission to use this image of his pay stub. During this particular pay period, Striffler worked 64 hours. The amount listed under "net pay?" $0.00.

Working long hours without getting paid is a tough thing to deal with, Striffler said.

"We've been working knowing that it was coming, and when it hit yesterday, it really hit," he told CNN's Poppy Harlow.
Striffler's wife is pregnant. She's due to have a baby (a girl) next week.


Maybe he can get a job doing dog walking, or cut his food expense in half. You know, "make adjustments," like Trump advised.

This is so sad. He has a good job. He even worked some time that he didn't get paid for. But no incoming money and a baby about to be born. It's time for Trump to end his outrageous shutdown...or maybe someone should take away all sources of income from HIM, until he ends the shutdown. No payments to Trump Org., no salary, no expense account, no Air Force One, no limo...
