    National Emergency

    Do you guys consider "needing to do something" as a prerequisite for declaring a National Emergency? Trump doesn't. This guy is the best.

    National Emergency

    You can say this is only a big story because the MSM made it so.........I would disagree and instead argue that this situation is a big story because Trump went to rally after rally and lead the crowds into chants about the wall, because he has tweeted hundreds of times about the wall, because he gave a national address from the oval office about the wall, because they bought advertising all over the country leading up to the 2018 elections and made it about the wall, etc. But whichever of us is correct doesn't really matter. What matters is the entire nation is watching this one.....thus, the gambit in which a candidate tells the nation she/he will simply bypass Congress to impose their ideas is now very much available.

    National Emergency

    I don’t know the specifics of that executive order. Did congress address it and vote on it the same day he declared their bill that he signed to be a national emergency? Almost anything can be justified by pointing to some act from the past. But the common public isn’t aware of mostly of those past acts. This one is the biggest story in the country. Candidates will be able to run campaigns on the promise to declare certain things a National Emergency, and it’ll work if the numbers are on their side.

    National Emergency

    Climate Scientists say climate change is an issue. Stop thinking so much in terms of Republicans vs Democrats and start thinking in terms of how you want our checks and balances to work, if you want congress to maintain any powers, etc, keeping in mind that Trump will only be president for another 0-6 years.

    National Emergency

    The thing is....this is a debated issue... with valid points on both sides that has been debated for years and even been a focal point of the last 2 elections (with a split result)....Like climate change, guns, abortion, and more, people are split on the immigration issue, all of which can claim to have lives at stake ......Yet you seem to be taking the stance that those on the other side are just not taking is seriously if they don't agree with you. I mean, I could take your exact post and change a few words to say "However I am with you I wish it didn’t come to this. But the Republicans have forced his hand by not being even remotely serious about climate change. I mean, Trump says he’d even tear down existing environmental protections. Pollute away!" and my post would be just as valid (I'd argue way more so actually) than yours. It's easy for me to say because I don't think a wall is important, but I think any Republicans that support this, even if its hesitantly, are being extremely short sighted. That said, I think we are obviously trending that way anyhow. We will blow things up for a small win today even if we know it hurts us tomorrow.

    National Emergency

    I will admit I’ve never called out anyone previously, simply because there hasn’t been an emergency declaration high profile enough for it to be argued about on the radar of someone that follows politics as (un)closely as I do. That said, and I suppose you all can easily prove me incorrect, but I assumed most declarations of emergency were a reaction to an event that occurred....whereas this is a reaction to Congress not supporting something Trump wanted. And our checks and balances aside, just logically.....He is literally going to sign a negotiated and voted on bill that addresses and funds the very item that he will one minute later declare an unaddressed national emergency. Think about it.

    National Emergency

    Yep, thats a done deal. The Dem will even have scientists backing her/him up. For anyone supporting this now, they shouldn’t even feign anger about that then. And when another Sandy Hook type shooting of young ones happens, if a Liberal is in office... But hey, DT has half a campaign promise he needs to be able to say he is keeping at upcoming campaign rallies, so long term implications be damned. It’s kinda funny if you are into that sort of thing.

    Nancy blinked: 5.7 for Wall............developing.

    I think we can all agree Trump is a lot funnier.

    Everyone knows you aren’t into funny things. My post was for those that are.

    Matt Kuchar stiffs caddie

    From the story.... I struggle with this one.......I am assuming this dude didn't have a normal caddying gig, so he was probably thrilled with the deal offered. Then consider that Kuchar missed the cut 16% of the time last year, and the caddie gets nothing if that happens, which would have really sucked on a one off gig. Obviously the best thing would have been for Kuchar to offer a much better deal up front.....But based on the deal, the guy was owed $4k and he got a 25% bonus. If he had doubled the deal and gave the guy $8k, we still rip him. Shiiit, if he upped it from $4k to $50k, many would have still called him cheap. My judgement is Kuchar did nothing wrong here, but he missed out on a layup opportunity to do a really cool thing for someone that very few would have whiffed on.
