"Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!"
President Trump

So... what we have here... is an old fashioned Mexican Standoff.  Which begs the question...

which side will blink first.

Any bets?

Well....Pelosi appears to be incapable of blinking due to all the work on her face.

They are.

I just posted a thread on Lindsey Graham dealings.  This is more specific could you post this link in that thread?  This is disgusting.
Some people have an ability to negotiate. It's an art you're basically born with. You either have it or you don't.

It would take an hour-and-a-half to learn everything there is to learn about missiles. I think I know most of it anyway. You're talking about just getting updated on a situation

Donald Trump

U.S. Constitution
Article 4 Section 4

"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened)

Which... I consider to be an unfair advantage to the rats.  But what's new.

I will bet a $50 donation to the GOP Briefing Room that what's going to happen is the following:

Trump declares a national emergency. The Rats find a leftist judge to issue an injunction. The Pubs in the Senate declare that the govt. should be reopened and the issue should be resolved in the courts. Trump ends the shut down and everyone declares victory.

Later of course after Trump loses in 2020 we realize the wall is never going to be built.

Well, since I have become somewhat of a pessimist politically (at least I admit it)....

I have to say that you're probably correct.  Hope not, though.

We have been burned so many times by those that are supposedly fighting for us how can we not be pessimistic?
