They've been off for weeks. They sure do get tired easy. Maybe we should elect younger people who can work a full schedule.

Emergency declaration in 3, 2, 1.....

Mitch McConnell can choke on a stick.

So, the Democrat-led House has passed a CR (Which Trump says he'll Veto) and the Republican led Senate has done fark all, right? Which means it's the Democrat's fault because reasons, right? Just want to make sure I understand where we're at.

Bigliest shutdown ever.

Add this to the pile of monumental fark ups this administration created out of thin air.

An ode to Mitch McConnell - AKA Immaturin the Turtle

See the TURTLE of enormous girth!
In his shell he hopes to hurt
His thought is slow and never kind;
he loathes us all within his mind .
In his pack all schemes are made;
he sees the truth but it's not said.
He loves his land and dark money,
And pretends to care about country
 
2019-01-11 02:07:18 PM  
Congratulations, Orange Foolius.  You're going down in history.  Just not for any of the reasons you wanted.
 
2019-01-11 02:08:00 PM  
Maybe the country will get lucky and McConnell will self-deport from this plane of existence during recess.
 
2019-01-11 02:20:36 PM  
Too bad there can't be some financial penalty against congress for every day of the shutdown. Similar to when projects are late.
 
2019-01-11 02:27:52 PM  
Right.

Workers showing up and not getting paid for doing their jobs
Senators leaving town and getting paid for not doing their jobs.

Yup. Blanche is setting him up for it. 

The GOP is going to let the courts slap Trump down, but in the meantime he'll have the weekend to do as much damage as he can.

He has the biggest Shutdown ever now

Senate Republicans have an opportunity to be the power brokers in a deal between House Dems and Trump.  But since they are a bunch of dummies with no leadership skills they're letting that opportunity go right on by.
 
2019-01-11 02:36:04 PM  
I'm only here to point out the typo in the headline. C'mon subby. It's spelled correctly in the tweet you linked.

If it's such an emergency, why is the GOP taking their time to make sure all the optics favor them?
 
2019-01-11 02:36:31 PM  
The Senate got paid today - time to go home and spend that crazy Senate pay on hookers and blow while the rest of government employees tries to make a can of tomato sauce last the weekend.

You can only be a broker if the deal you oversee holds fast.  Since Trump reneges on every deal, instead of a power broker, you're a stooge that looks weak and incompetent.

This is why Trump is surrounded by the people he surrounds himself now.  Anyone that has the ability to be a success in their own right would never expose their reputation to this kind of dangerous buffoonery.

That wouldn't change anything.  If Trump does declare an emergency, the shutdown still won't end until Yertle gets off his ass and schedules a vote on a funding bill.
 
2019-01-11 02:39:09 PM  
Since when was 1pm the end of the work day for anyone?

At this point, I kind of feel like give Trump his stupid wall so the House can focus all of its attention on investigating Trump and throw McConnell in there as well. He seems to be pretty complicit. Wonder why that is? Could it be because he's also a traitor? Let's give the House free reign to find out!

The wall would be a temporary loss for the Dems but no one will remember that when President Pelosi takes over and gets rid of all the snakes like St. Patrick.

This is bad news...

Only the bigliest, longiest, best shutdowns.
 
2019-01-11 02:39:52 PM  
Why is the Wall suddenly an emergency?  What on earth is this a distraction for?  What abomination are they covering up?  I am sooo curious.

The Wallers need to get their schtick together.  If it was that important, maybe the Republican-held House and Senate should have been more pro-active during the last two years.

Something is fishy in America.  Again.

Now, now: Sebastian Gorka and Jacob Wohl both have secret sources assuring them that she is hours from announcing her retirement and she's been spirited back to the hospital due to complications. No way they would lie.

He could just stupidly be putting pressure on the Dems, thinking they'll go away.  Isn't one of his idiotic business tenets to always attack?

A state of emergency was maybe always the end game to keep this administration in power. And because they know it's about to come crashing down they have to speed up their plans. I hate how paranoid that sounds.

Tthose Senate Republicans really disagree with Trump, and really want a floor vote, and really want to override his veto, and are so close to impeaching him! But they just wanna go home more.

Where are the Democrats? They should be irate, publicly, with McConnell for not holding a floor vote. They should be encouraging federal workers who are not furloughed, required to show up for work for no pay, to walk off the job. All of them. The 13th amendment says no involuntary servitude. ATC workers? Walk off the job if you want. You cannot be forced to work without pay, you can however do it voluntarily. And you cannot be fired.

Democrats are just hanging out on their floaty in a pool waiting for Republicans to catch fire, RATHER THAN SETTING THEM ON FIRE. Christ at this point they're soaked with so much fuel it would only take a little spark. Going home? What a bad look. House and Senate Democrats should sign on as friends of the court for the ATC and other federal union lawsuits against the Federal government. If workers walked off the job, they'd sort this shiat out a lot faster. Even 1/2 of essential workers walking off the job would get people's attention.

Remember when Paul Manafort's lawyers accidentally revealed that Manafort had shared polling data with Russian-intelligence connected individuals. Funny that story isn't getting much coverage, since it's the smocking gun that links the Trump campaign directly to the Russian government.

The wall is never going to happen. $5 billion is only a fraction of the cost. Trump needs to blame someone else for the fact that the wall will never happen. It will be the Dems if they reopen government without the wall or the courts if he goes the emergency powers route.

Without any evidence, I say he owes people money.  He would "hire" their companies for the wall.  The Wall will never get built but the money will get paid to those he owes.  Without it, I think he's in more serious trouble than Mueller can provide.  Maybe that's why he wants the investigation to continue: if he's in jail, the people he owes can't get to him very easily.

Conspiracy...haven't thought up one of those in a while.  But, hey, if they don't need evidence to believe something, neither do I.  Both sides are bad, right?

What the fark happened between '85 and '88 that made such a huge spike in border apprehensions?

Was there a coyote strike in Mexico or something?
