    more fast food

    Seriously? He didn't have to do jack shit. Earlier this evening, I encountered a woman and her son looking for money for food on my into a CVS. I had zero cash. In addition to the perscription I was picking up, I purchased them some crackers, dried fruit, and raisens. She was on tears when I gave them to her on my way out. Am I an asshole for not going home and cooking them up something nice?

    Confederate Avenue being renamed

    And what percentage of wall does it get you? The figure I have found is 5 billion buys us 215 miles. The $7 million of wall requires an inconvenient walk to the east. A 90 year old with a walker could probably pull it off.

    Confederate Avenue being renamed

    5 billion is being requested for 215 miles. That's $4,404.51 ft a linear fucking foot. Your $7 million gets you just under 1,600 ft of wall. You know what the root cause of the issue is? The part that really pisses me off? Nobody is doing the math. You are bragging about "the rest of America" funding .015% of the wall. Is this something you are really that proud of? Jesus H. Fucking Christ. It's division and multiplication. It's not really that tough. No wonder Trump was elected. We are a nation of idiots.

    Stupidest Shutdown in History

    Does everybody see what I mean about my prior point? "At least he can depend on his hardcore base holding him to the integrity of a garden variety turnip. It simply does not matter AT ALL what he said in the past. The quotes I provided have no relevance at all to them. This is a big factor on why the shutdown continues. Trump can count on his base not holding him accountable to anything. He has nothing to lose in that regard."

    When one is hit in the street by a car and killed. Do we leave them there to die and drive around them, or drag them to the curb? Voluntarily and at no charge, I mean.

    Stupidest Shutdown in History

    So it is "Completely Trump’s responsibility" for what has happened, yet is it "both sides responsibility" to fix what happened. That makes it not completely Trump's responsibility. Fuck that. People are responsible for their fuckups. He has SAID he owns it. He needs to own it. It has been a reliable repeating pattern of this administration and its supporters that there is far more interest in pissing off the libs than solving problems. "Ha Ha, We Won" has been, more or less, a mission statement. Making the libs heads explode. The problem is, this one has real world personal consequences. It's not just dumping coal mine waste into a river a half a country away, or bankrupting some farming operation in a faraway state who's market has vanished. These are the paychecks of hundreds of thousands of Americans. It is a hit to the businesses who those people patronize. No doubt it has achieved the mission statement of the administration to piss off the liberals. Absolutely no fucking harm done there. It's a fucking bonus. The problem is that it's too far reaching and is pissing off conservatives too. That's a problem. Trump didn't think this one through. At least he can depend on his hardcore base holding him to the integrity of a garden variety turnip. It simply does not matter AT ALL what he said in the past. The quotes I provided have no relevance at all to them. This is a big factor on why the shutdown continues. Trump can count on his base not holding him accountable to anything. He has nothing to lose in that regard.

    Stupidest Shutdown in History

    How about we go with what Trump himself said about a government shutdown: Oct. 7, 2013: "Problems start from the top, and they have to get solved from the top, and the president’s the leader, and he’s got to get everybody in a room, and he’s got to lead. And he doesn’t do that, he doesn’t like doing that, that’s not his strength." "When they talk about the government shutdown, they’re going to be talking about the president of the United States, who the president was at that time. They’re not going to be talking about who was the head of the House, the head the Senate, who’s running things in Washington. So I really think the pressure is on the president." Dec. 11, 2018:"I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck, because the people of this country don’t want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country. So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it. The last time you shut it down, it didn’t work. I will take the mantle of shutting down." So what's the deal here, Joker? Trump himself has stated that it is the President's responsibility to solve the problem, and he personally is taking accountability for it. Why are you blaming others? Is Trump completely full of shit on this?

    Ben's Wall

    It is estimated by the Department of Homeland Security that $5 billion will buy us 215 dollars of wall. I ran some quick numbers on an alternative I am calling Ben's Wall: Base MSRP of a 2019 Honda Ridgeline: $ 29,990 Cost of stackable outdoor white resin chair at Home Depot: $ 10 Honda Ridgeline length: 17.5 ft Total Ridgelines needed, parked bumper to bumper for 215 miles: 64,869 Total chairs needed, 1 per mile: 215 Total people needed to sit in chairs (3 each chair, 8 hour shifts): 645 Annual Salary for each person: $47,300 (Hey... They are just fucking sitting in a chair). Total cost of Ridgelines: $ 1,945,421,310 Total cost of Chairs: $ 2,150 Total cost of personnel for 100 fucking years: $ 3,050,850,000 Total 100 year cost of Ben's Wall: $ 4,996,273,460 (I know I didn't factor in taxes and licensing, but we've got $ 3,726,540 to cover that along with the litigation of property owners having to look at all those POS Ridgelines) So the idea here is that if anyone tries to climb over a Ridgeline, it sets off the alarm and you've always got one person within a half mile of the trucklet to hear the alarm. BUSTED! Note that an alternative is to go with Nissan Versas, which are slightly shorter but way cheaper at $ 12,360. That gets us 32 more years of wall, and they are not as ugly as the Ridgelines.

    Uh... They're Ridgelines. I could probably leave the fucking keys on the dashboards and they would be fine.

    What happened to the Dog I've always known. You are off your game. Here is what was said: Guy Benson: "Regardless of whether collusion would be a crime, is it still the position of you and your client that there was no collusion whatsoever on behalf of the Trump campaign?" Rudy Giuliani: "Correct." Rudy never said there was no collusion. He just said "Correct." Please don't let this happen again.

    Really? Check this out. (Note this should start at 33 min 17 seconds. First time I have tried this.)

    No collusion!

    Gulliani opens his mouth again. Awesome.

    Ben's Wall

    Could be a challenge to find 645 people that would want to be seen in a Ridgeline. I suppose the night shifts wouldn't be a problem.

    Through the bed speakers! That's almost worth the cost of the battery replacements.

    Let the indoctrination begin

    Let's not let the irony of this whole thread escape us. A mormon is making an accusation of indoctrination.

    The next time you have guests over for dinner, have a pile of Big Macs and fries on the table. I'd be surprised if you were to tell us it went well. Obviously, I'm assuming you don't line in a trailer park. My apologies, in advance, if you do.

    Ok... I was just informed that this is a parody. It is not actually the President and VP. These are actors. Sorry for any confusion.

    Well there's some irony. Barnacle Balls wife looks like the Pillsbury Doughboy with a bad haircut.

    The President serves absolutely shitty food to guests at the Whitehouse. You deflect to school lunches. I don't think there is a single fuckup Trump could make that doesn't have a "what about..." response from you clowns.
