Disgusting, but you had to know that was coming.

Step 1) Cut disaster funding
Step 2) Use funds to pay for wall
Step 3) Request humanitarian assistance from Mexico to provide disaster support no longer covered

Hey presto, Mexico paid for the wall.

We could have saved a lot of money in disaster relief... if the wall was already built, Texas would be one big swimming pool now. All we'd have to is install a couple of diving boards and we'd have been set.

The optics are politically bad

When has that ever stopped them?

Original headline was better.

Prostitution?
Drag shows?
Demo derby?

No way they're going to do that.

Well, you have to admit, if Texas is devastated by the hurricane, fewer Mexicans will want to sneak into it.  Win/win situation.
 
2017-08-30 08:11:07 PM  
It's almost like they want to piss people off so bad that they have to drop the wall idea without Trump blaming them for not trying.
 
2017-08-30 08:12:11 PM  
The bill will change before they vote on it.

Daily reminder that Trump is simply the most visible manifestation of a GOP problem.
 
2017-08-30 08:13:09 PM  
fark that shiat. Let's take care of what's going on with the hurricane damages and move on to other things like funding our farking infrastructure that is absolutely going to hell

Umm who do you think is going to rebuild?
 
2017-08-30 08:15:04 PM  
I'm kind of surprised they're not using that money somehow for tax cuts.
 
2017-08-30 08:15:25 PM  
In case you thought Trump was the only craven scumbag in the GOP...
 
2017-08-30 08:15:58 PM  
I'm torn.

As a human being, I hate the idea of the human tragedy a hurricane can cause, especially since the working class and poor are disproportionately affected as far as life interruption.

On the other hand, fark Texass and their aid. These are people who have voted repeatedly to deny disaster aid to others, essentially telling large swaths of America "you're not the right kind, so die in the streets of exposure"

And on the third hand, fark the Nazi wall getting one red farking cent. The only thing it would be good for is for putting Nazi farks up against.

noneyourbase: Daily reminder that Trump is simply the most visible manifestation of a GOP problem.


Daily reminder that Trump is actually a manifestation of everything the GOP has been for the last 25 years.

This isn't even hypothetical. The GOP hates latinos. They hate black people. They hate poor and middle class people. They hate empathy. They hate democrats and liberals and gay people and the U.N. and all the trappings of mature statesmanship.

Donald Trump IS the GOP. The only reason any of the GOP's leadership is mad at him is because his nonsense hurts their bottom line, not because he is in any way antithetical to their actual beliefs.

Donald Trump, even though he holds no actual allegiance to anything but himself, has managed to become the ideal republican once you strip out all the smoke and mirrors.

It's not a GOP problem. It's the GOP by design.

They're just mad the plans were leaked.

From a racist sack of shiat who is a brother of a friend of mine.  Not withstanding that his brother is married to a Mexican gal.

I remember Fark when it was not so horribly politically biased.

Way to go, Drew.  You're as credible as Breitbart, just on a different side.

What's wrong?

The government hasn't had a balanced budget in my lifetime, so why does it matter?  The last time any progress was made on the national debt, Eisenhower was in office.  You might point at the late Clinton years as having balanced budgets, and they were before supplemental spending kicked in.  The debt still grew in FY2000 by $18 billion.

Why are we building a wall again? To protect Mexicans from the cheeto monster president?
 
2017-08-30 08:28:31 PM  
Slaves? Is it slaves?

To commemorate Donald Trump's historic electoral win.

Hey look, another Fark thread with Righties typing poorly spelled screeds that make no sense to anyone but them.
 
2017-08-30 08:31:05 PM  
They're doing it purely to dare Democrats not to vote for hurricane relief. They're doing it, not because they give a damn about a wall, but to make Democrats look as bad as possible when they refuse to vote for it. Repugs are truly the scum of the earth.

Every time you think they can go no lower, they prove you wrong.
 
2017-08-30 08:34:49 PM  
The wall is a logistical impossibility.  Setting aside the money it would take, it's a violation of a number of existing environmental and land rights issues.

So why are they even bothering with this nonsense?

You're right.  They should bend over and take their screwing like men.

Have they tried denying pudding to those who don't eat their meat? The savings could add up.

I'm a lefty. You could explain to me why the stuff in the article is good public policy, if you'd like. I'm listening.

$1 to kick CHEEOTUS in the nads?
$5 to wear cleats while doing so?
