    Haha. It's always good to start the new year off on the right foot.

    Nancy Pelose elected speaker

    Yah, I'm not sure what the answer is. Obviously this has nothing to do with 5.6B, as that's a drop in the bucket, compared to what they waste on any given week. It seems to be a battle of ideologies and appealing to their bases. Trump wants to fulfill a campaign promise to the people who voted for him, and give him some ammo for 2020. Democrats believe the majority of Americans do not want a wall. The problem is both sides are using working class folk as political pawns. People barely scraping by are having their livelihood put in jeopardy by a bunch of bickering old rich people. As for standing up to Trump, it's not that I want them to pass democrat policies. It's more of a standing up for the principles of the party. I do concede that the people who have done that have been fed to the wolves though. I just don't believe Trump reflects the true ideology of the party. At the root, my problem with Trump is Trump is all about Trump. I don't think he values the opinions of his advisers, and wants to surround himself with a bunch of yes men. That's not really the way a democracy is designed to function properly. Like everyone else, I just want the best for our country and a government that works on behalf of us all.

    More of the same, is better than the far left. However, in the end, the only thing that really matters is checks and balances on the twittard in chief. If the republican congress proved anything over the last two years, it's that they lack the testicular fortitude to stand up to Trump. I personally think a split between the legislature is good regardless of who is president. Elected officials should compromise and work on behalf of all people.

    Harper and Machado, what gives?

    Hope Machado goes to the Yankees. He's a POS and it gives me yet another reason to root against that POS franchise.

    So Bird Box

    My wife really liked it. She has very bad taste in movies and TV shows though. I dont have the attention span to watch movies personally. I can do a comedy or a really compelling drama (something like Saving Private Ryan or Fight Club), but I generally fall asleep during movies. Has anyone seen that Black Mirror movie? Shes trying to get me to watch that one with her.

    Manhattan or New England?

    I generally like New England, but theres a restaurant in my city called The Crab Cooker, that makes the best Manhattan. I think it has a little cream in it, because its more of a pinkish color. Its amazing and beats any New England Ive ever had. They make great smoked albacore too. Getting hungry thinking about it.

    Friend has decided to drink himself to death.

    The only advice I can give you is to cut him out of your life. But, not because you dont care. Because you do care. You cant help people who dont want to help themselves. Im in recovery and it is something I have to consciously work at every single day. Every time I lose focus of my sobriety, I fall back off the wagon. Which as Im sure many of you know, Ive done several times over the last 5 years. Probably close to 10 times if Im being honest.
  11. I think you need this thing called leverage, when trying to force someones hand... Why would the dems give him 5 bil to reopen the government that a significant majority of Americans blame him for shutting down? He did say to blame him after all... I dont think he even read the book that whoever ghostwrited for him.

    Short Man Syndrome

    T's and P's to the GC vertically challenged lady men. You don't need to admit it here. We already know who you are. This is your safe space. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/10603195/Short-man-syndrome-really-does-exist-Oxford-University-finds.html
  13. I dont see that anywhere in the article. Maybe I need to get down on my knees, so I can read at the same eye level as you?
  14. Well, I dont know what changed between January (your link) and March (my link). Im guessing the devil is in the details, but all of this information is second hand from unnamed senior officials, so who knows what the truth is anyways. They shouldnt get citizenship anyways. Send them back and let them fulfill the dreams of their own countries. Would deter future illegals from trying to pull the same BS. Tougher immigration policies would work way better than a dumb wall IMO.
  15. Not according to my link.
  16. Yes https://www.businessinsider.com/congress-dreamer-deal-fails-immigration-trump-daca-spending-bill-2018-3 The White House initially offered a roughly three-year DACA extension in exchange for $25 billion in border wall funding, Axios reported on Thursday, citing Congressional sources familiar with the negotiations. Democrats appeared amenable to the $25 billion figure, but shot down the offer because it provided a pathway to citizenship for only about 700,000 DACA recipients not the full 1.8 million population of young unauthorized immigrants brought to the US as children. Democrats then suggested exchanging the $25 billion border wall funding for a pathway to citizenship for the 1.8 million immigrants, but the Trump administration turned them down, demanding broader immigration reforms in return for the broader population of Dreamers.

    Happy Football Day Week 17

    And we almost always lose this game to the Packers.

    "Funny business" on WW Finals Week ..

    The lesson to be learned from all this is to never trust a grown man who plays frisbee golf. Theyre always either burnout hippies, or too poor to play real golf. This guy Jeff sounds like he has both bases covered.

    How do you know if ham goes bad?

    It tastes even worse than it did the day you got it? I like swine and all, but ham is such a lackluster meat. Give me a prime rib on xmas, and some eggs and bacon the morning after. Ham is sh!t.
  21. During Obamas tenure, 90% of the GC threads were the usual suspects complaining about Obama. Now in the era of Trump, 90% of the threads are the usual suspects complaining about people (generally the fake media) complaining about Trump.
