Or would that be "a crisis"???  So, now I'm really getting confused....they shut down the very reason for shutting it down?????   Huh, that is some math they are using, no?


Not sure why the Coast Guard seizing drugs would constitute any more of "a crisis" than the state troopers and sheriffs that are seizing drugs on our highways and interstates each and every day.

 

 


Well, if I pay attention to what my leaders are telling me, this problem is mostly coming from the Southern boarder and that great wall is going to solve the whole darn problem, right?

Well if Trump would just do that - I think we could all sleep more soundly..........................

 

There are No Ideas - Plural - in Trumps World - it's either his way or the Highway

 

His Deal Making Skills & Successes Are Documented in History - 1/2 Dozen Bankruptcies when he refused to act on any Ideas - just his Gut - Bankruptcies that left others holding the bag & then when the Loans from his Daddy were no longer available - he started Money Laundering & Bogus Illegal Corrupt Colleges & Foundations & Real Estate Deals .............................


Trump supporters either ignore all of that or they just wanted a corrupt and incompetent president.

Guess I missed the work part. I saw this to mean some are too good to take jobs beneath them. I thought that was being pointed out. I failed mind reading and don't have the palsy walsy part of the group here enjoyed( by ?????) by some.

"Successful" people wouldn't miss "the work part", right?  Have any "successful" suggestions for where these thousands of people can get jobs at?

So where will all of these coast guard workers go work at with our low unemployment rate? The average pay for a border patrol agent is around $50,000 a year. Should they leave their posts empty and work somewhere else during the shutdown? Where will all of these people go to make a wages anywhere comparable to what they make? Have any "successful" ideas for them?

Too bad that trump isn't "successful" enough to "look at new ideas".

My question is, does the Coast Guard also do smuggling patrol?  


Indeed, they do seize drugs. LOTS of it!

So what do you think - do the Dems share your view of his inability to negotiate and are taking advantage of him for partisan purposes while keeping the government closed?

 

 

 

 


 


No I think the Democrats are reminding the American People & Trump that the USA is not a Autocracy............

 

The last two years have been confusing - we had a Executive & Legislative Branch that were Amoebic

 

Now some order as defined by the US Constitution has been restored

 

The Executive Branch Adminstrates & the Legislative Branch Legislates

 

You do remember right?
