Republicans are desperate to co-opt the democrats in approving Trump's wall.

Republicans are desperate to co-opt the democrats in approving Trump’s wall.
According to Trump, there are/have been two ways for republicans to approve the wall without votes from the democrats.
He requested that Mitch McConnell use the nuclear option which would have allowed the Senate republicans to pass the $5billion plus that he wants. Mitch refused.
Now, he says he can declare a National Emergency to get the money he wants.
The GOP absolutely does not want complete credit for funding Trump’s wall.
Now Trump is holding our country hostage with his proud shutdown and falsely blaming the democrats.
He has had two years to get his republican majority Congress to do it under his leadership.

Declare national emergency? Challenge him to do it... See which repubs support him.

Repubs say democrats should support our President.

OK.

Is the Coast Guard now getting paid?

Is the Coast Guard now getting paid? They were paid up to the end of Dec.

It was somewhat vague whether or not they would be paid after New Years.

No wonder Trump wants to build in Russia.

Selling Real Estate in Russia? Are You Crazy?

Or crazy to buy it?

Sellers need a certificate of sanity.

Trump will have no problem finding a doctor to diagnose him any way he wants.

Ms. Kotova, and tens of thousands of other Russians who are required to produce such a document to sell property, have no history of mental illness. The certificate, which must be signed and stamped by a doctor, is a legal defense against a pervasive problem in Moscow real estate deals: rampant fraud and weak courts.

This is the state of a real estate market plagued by “black realtors,” unscrupulous sales agents who use a variety of ploys to separate Muscovites from their money or property in the largest city in Europe. Russian media coined the phrase and described the agents as akin to criminals working a real estate black market, in a city where $29 billion in residential property is sold every year.

10 inch slat gaps in Donald's fence?

10 inch slat gaps?

The length of a Ford Explorer is 198.3"
The Explorer pictured below traverses 11 of the "steel slats."
With equal width slats and gaps, that means there is a nearly 10"
gap between each spiked slat of horror.
Plenty of room for half-starved refugees to fit through.

How many votes does it take for Congress to do certain things?

How many votes does it take for Congress to do certain things?

Does anyone have a comprehensive article that tells what percentage or number of votes it takes to do particular actions?

Certain spending/tax bills... Certain approval for actions.

Sometimes a bare majority.
Sometimes 2/3.
Sometimes other percentages... 60%... 75%... ---?
How many to override a veto?
How many to stop a filibuster.

Probably different rules for the House vs the Senate.

Grandma's Thanksgiving Invitation

Grandma's Thanksgiving Invitation

Dear Family:

I'm not dead yet. Thanksgiving is still important to me.
If being in my Last Will and Testament is important to you, then you
might consider being with me for my favorite holiday.

Dinner is at 2:00, NOT 2:15, NOT 2:05. Two (2:00)
Arrive late and you get what's left over.

Last year, that moron Marshall fried a turkey in one of those contraptions and practically burned the deck off the house. This year, the only peanut oil used to make the meal will be from the secret scoop of peanut butter I add to the carrot soup.

Jonathan, your last new wife was an idiot. You don't arrive at someone's house on Thanksgiving needing to use the oven and the stove. Honest to God I thought you might have learned after two wives - date them longer and save us all the agony of another divorce.

Now, the house rules are slightly different. This year because I have decided that 2/3 of you don't know how to take care of nice things, then paper plates and red Solo cups might be bad for the environment, but I'll be gone soon and that will be your problem to deal with.

1. The University of Texas no longer plays Texas A&M. The television
stays off during the meal.

2. The "no cans for kids" rule still exists. We are using 2 liter bottles because your children still open a third can before finishing the first two. Parents can fill child's cup when it is empty. All of the cups have names on them and I'll be paying close attention to refills.

3. Chloe, last year we were at Trudy's house and I looked the other way when your Jell-O salad showed up. This year, if Jell-O salad comes in the front door it will go right back out the back door with the garbage. Save yourself some time, honey. You've never been a good cook and you shouldn't bring something that wiggles more than you. Buy something from the bakery.

4. Grandmothers give grandchildren cookies and candy. That is a fact of life. Your children can eat healthy at your home. At my home, they can eat whatever they like as long as they finish it.

5. I cook with bacon and bacon grease. That's nothing new. Your being a vegetarian doesn't change the fact that stuffing without bacon is like egg salad without eggs. Even the green bean casserole has a little bacon grease in it. That's why it tastes so good. Not eating bacon is just not natural. And as far as being healthy, look at me. I’ve outlived almost everyone I know.

6. Salad at Thanksgiving is a waste of space.

7. I do not like cell phones. Leave them in the car.

8. I do not like video cameras. There will be 32 people here. I am sure you can capture lots of memories without the camera pointed at me.

9. Being a mother means you have to actually pay attention to the kids. I have nice things and I don't put them away just because company is coming over. Mary, watch your kids and I'll watch my things.

10. Speaking of being a mother; if you are babysitting a neighbor’s kid, it is not automatically family here.
Take them back home or put them in one. Or tell the neighbors to send enough money to pay for a restaurant meal.

11. Rhonda, a cat that requires a shot twice a day is a cat that has lived too many lives. I think staying home to care for the cat is your way of letting me know that I have lived too many lives too. I can live with that. Can you?

12. Words mean things! I say what I mean. Let me repeat: You don't need to bring anything means you don't need to bring anything. And if I did tell you to bring something, bring it in the quantity I said. Really, this doesn't have to be difficult.

13. Domino's and cards are better than anything that requires a battery or an on/off switch. That was true when you were kids and it's true now that you have kids.

14. Showing up for Thanksgiving guarantees presents at Christmas. Not showing up guarantees a card that may or may not be signed.

In memory of your Grandfather, the back fridge will be filled with beer.
Drink until it is gone. I prefer wine anyway. But one from each family
needs to be the designated driver. I really mean all of the above.

Love You, Grandma.

Will the Saudi killers willingly sacrifice their lives for the Prince?

Will the Saudi killers willingly sacrifice their lives for the Prince?

After all, this is about their Prince/gov't, not their faith.

The current Saudi story (ever-changing) is that they alone are responsible for killing the Saudi journalist in Turkey.

The latest story is that some of them will be executed.
Will they willingly give up their lives for their Prince?

Maybe held incommunicado until the execution to ensure no incriminating statements about the Prince?

The inclusion of the bone saw certainly complicates the story of an interrogation gone wrong.

Donald’s idea of acceptable respect for the White House is Kanye pounding on the desk and saying mf and bs on national television.
