Here is your memory alert... the bill that was not signed off on by the Republicans did not contain funding for border security. And it was a CR, not a budget. Last January the President made it clear.... he would not sign a budget that did not contain funding for border security.

President Trump is taking his share of the blame. However, the real people who should be held responsible are Democrats. If they would come to the table with a compromise then this partial shutdown would have ended before it started. Had they fulfilled the promise they made last year at this time... an improved immigration policy, then there would not have been a partial shutdown. Time to own up.... Democrats will try to hold our nation hostage until they get their way. Well, I don't think that is going to happen... if you think President Trump's favorability rating is low now... if he caves, it will hit rock bottom.
And by the way, his rating among Republicans holding onto an 80 percent.
They never check their messages and their interns, who has to filter those messages, do not work on the weekends.... they are strictly 9 to 5 with an hour lunch and a break every 2 hours..... So, not many messages are actually listed to each day. But, we can fill up their Twitter accounts and email boxes. https://twitter.com/speakerpelosi?lang=en

I don't think any of these address the fact that trespassers are entering our country, these trespassers are trafficking humans and some are mules. Whereas it is true, a fence or wall will change the migration of four legged animals, those animals simply adapt. It happens in nature, a river changes course... an earthquake or even volcanic activity. I doubt that any will go extent due to a fence. However, there is one concern that is not addressed enough... the separation of tribal lands. The US government can not erect a fence in that area because Native Americans have sovereign rights. In such case, a less invasive method of security must be employed with the cooperation of the Nation. I admit I do not have a solution to this part of the problem. However, the others who admit that they are simply holding out for more money.... not much I can say about that.
Maybe, but we have lots of ranchers & farmers ... (
Some of the "farmers" on the border get quite a nice kick back from coyotes--people smugglers and mules--drug runners who pay a healthy price for access to crossings without authorities being alerted. And as a side benefit, their homes and property is not raided by those same individuals returning to Mexico and points south. While other ranchers who do not have a "working" relationship with coyote or mules, like Mike Landry, are routinely targeted. Same area, difference... Mr. Landry calls authorities when he finds uninvited "vacationers" on his land. I am not saying that Mr. Bishop has such an agreement, but if you read his comments in Marfa and Presidio County, Texas
2009, you will find that he is in favor of open borders and he speaks out often, railing against border patrol and the Rangers... I do not know if he enables the "runners" by allowing them easy access to the US... but, as they say, follow the money.
I am glad you are feeling better... and my friend, do pick at me..... I do not mind in the least!!!

I like your post Pennylynn and agree with most all of them.
But sometimes when I feel good I like to pick at my favorite posters. 😁😘😎
My friend, I do not believe that I referred to our President as "her" although the source I used did... and it was concerning ..... I think that the "research" may have been done when the Democrats had been promised Killary as the next President and they "expected" that a National Emergency measure might be necessary because many worried how Conservatives would handle the loss. I may be over thinking this... but that would be my best guess.
Personally, I think the Democrats will scrape the barrel to find a minority female to oppose President Trump (should he decide to run) in 2020.

So.. how many did you buy? Democrats must be begining to worry, the go fund me has raised over $20 million and still growing quickly, so they put out disinformation that the site has been taken down or the veteran, without an arm or his legs, must be running a scam.
And how dare he have Angel Moms and Dads helping to keep track of the money or explore alternatives to build a wall. No.... he has to be up to no good....
Is he and many of us saying to Democrats... WE CAN GET THIS DONE without you. Go ahead, hold the nation hostage for years if you want.... Many of us are saying... we do not need some of these overpaid government workers. So... go ahead and show us how many we can function quite easily without. Keep the government closed... Soon we will realize that those Democrats are indeed nonessential. I hope when the government is reopened, our President does not make their pay retroactive.... Perhaps the next time, they will pass a budget that is more than what they want, but what the citizens need.
Sounds like my business to help drought stricken Texans a few years ago: for $19.99, you could get a dozen packets of dehydrated water, just put one packet of the powder in a gallon container, add water and BOOM - a gallon of water!
The go fund me is still up and raising money. He is offering an option.. we the people can raise the money and build the wall if Democrats are so intent in keeping the government closed. If you wish to read his alternative, go to https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall
TO ALL... THE GO FUND ME FOR BUILDING THE WALL canceled or taken down.
Your donations are still welcome and needed.

Yea.... Republicans just like John McCain. Just because a person registers, for the purpose of gaining votes, as a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, or whatever.... does not make them a 100 percent supporter of their party. Also, when these people were nominated, they were selected on one factor... who could be approved. Many are unable to stand up to the selection... Kavanaugh is the only one I can remember who thumbed his nose at the committee and was seated regardless of his opponents. We would like to see people who do not play the game for election, but rather stay true to their convictions....but, that rarely happens. It is not until they achieve their goal, a seat or official position, do we (US Citizens) find out what they truly believe or think.
You are aware that Roe vs Wade was decided in a SCOTUS that had a 6 Justices appointed by Republicans and Republican appointed Justices have been in the majority for the last 40 years. Seems the Republicans . the ones who favor abortion
You are right, but he also extended many that were declared by other presidents... one dating back to 1979. Perhaps these were included in Vernon's count.

You are right, I am way too smart to believe the Washington Post, Politifact, New York Times or a group of lay people who writes for Wikipedia. Do you expect any of these people to be unbiased or report real news? They are so Liberal that they can no longer discern their feelings from facts. You, I like but, your sources are not creditable in my opinion. The two sources I listed actually examined the crime scene.... I think that the individual who arrived at the scene, saw the body, put his hands on the wounds... would carry more creditability than a news (and that is questionable) reporter that is promoting their career and therefore reports what they are told to...
Penny, you're way too smart to be gullible enough ... (
