    Republican Party: hostage taking versus compromise

    You're right. As far as the painted corner is concerned, keep in mind the Dems are completely aware they're dealing with a vacuous egomaniac. Marks my words, there will be a compromise funding solution agreed upon through the backchannel negotiations that are surely ongoing as I type this. Dems will offer a bill that offers some amount between the $1.6 billion Trump had already asked for (and which the R's had unanimously passed)and the $5.7 billion he's demanding now. The solution will allow for Trump to save face* by claiming ownership of the solution and by preemptively announcing an end to the shutdown once the terms of the funding bill have been agreed upon before it's introduced into either chamber. *This will allow Trump to at least perceive he has walked away with a 'win,' though IMO the damage is already done. His numbers with Independents are back below 30%, and the Republican party is polling 26 points lower than Dems among Independents as a result of the shutdown. Which brings me to the other side of the equation. The GOP is getting skull f*cked in all this. And they know it. Mitch McTurtle may be digging in his heels, but it will only take a small number of R's in the Senate to get on board with a funding bill that doesn't give President ManBaby his Lego set. The lynchpin will be immigration reform. Trump won't allow for a permanent pathway to immigration because he's afraid of the fringe mouthpieces who feed his base (e.g., Coulter, Limbaugh, et al). And the Dems, aware they have the upper hand - which will get immensely stronger once they introduce the forthcoming funding bill offering more than they R's had already agreed upon for border security upgrades - will likely push for paths to citizenship for both Dreamers and TPS immigrants.
  3. So now you don't care about illegals and the border right? Now that you don't care if some people aren't arrested. Or is it selective? Oh yeah, it's selective.
  4. Actually I think people aren’t flying. I expected long lines and SeaTac at 5:30 pm was empty.

    I think a $10,000 fine for every illegal alien employed would dry up their jobs. Also we would need to loosen the migrant visa worker program to allow temporary visas for those that want to work the fields.

    Republican Party: hostage taking versus compromise

    Yeah I thought it was funny but also unfortunate as it distracts from the more important point that the Republican Party has locked itself into hostage taking as the sole means of moving forward their agenda.

    Republican Party: hostage taking versus compromise

    The lead-in graphic to the article is kind of funny. Because he's the president America deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

    I'd be ok with something like that too, as it solves an existing issue we definitely have to deal with. And I agree with your other proposals too, and really they've got to make penalties on the employers stiff, but also end the sanctuary city/state nonsense, and make entering the country illegally/overstaying the visa harshly punished and strongly enforced.

    I agree. Until we start getting some good bigs and overall team athleticism that the rest of the top MWC teams seem to be able to get, we won’t be able to raise the level of the program. Putting USUs post Queta on any of our recent good teams would have propelled us into the Dance and a great shot at winning some games.

    Those old mining and ranching towns in the rural parts of the state are old as +++++, from Carson City to Elko, Lund, Caliente, Ely, etc.

    Right. I’d be ok with granting legal status with no possibility of citizenship to those people who entered our country illegally but they don’t get the opportunity to apply for citizenship as a punishment for breaking our immigration laws. Only DACA recipients should get a pathway to citizenship. Children shouldn’t be punished for the crimes of their children. But, after we adopt that we also outlaw sanctuary cities and have a zero tolerance policy towards people who enter our country illegally or over stay their visas.
  14. It's hard to believe some people are actually slow clapping the passive destruction of one of the important pillars of law and order on which our democracy stands. Pretty f*cking anti-American if you ask me.

    So basically, post-Reagan amnesty. It's almost like...the amnesty encouraged more to come.

    The issue was minor back them. Massive illegal immigration didn't really begin until the 90s.

    Problems at Covington High

    The adults including the media started this mess and you put this on the kids? They were just reacting to what the adults started. The adults involved are the ones that should be ashamed.

    When in Tokyo last summer there was a long line out of Taco Bell. Meanwhile, the 5 star noodle place on Yelp I went to had about 5 old people in it.
