The GOP doesn't know how to govern. They've managed to cock-block themselves on a number of occasions already, with this shutdown being the cherry on top.

but this shut down is on the Democrats.

It's really not. The GOP wants the Democrats to throw the DACA kids under a bus to save the CHIP kids.

That's not how Americans think or act. We don't sacrifice one group to save another.

The GOP can go fuck itself for wanting to pull that sort of game.

What's even more bafflingly, though, the Republican party has signaled it WANTS something done about the so-called DREAMERS--something that doesn't end in their deportation. With a majority in both houses, cowing the Democrats with a few key concessions should be almost a given!

They get their policy, the Democrats don't even get the dignity of a "noble" cause to make a last stand on, and their own government doesn't shut down!

It's literally the Joker's gambit in The Dark Knight with the two ferries with bombs inside them. The GOP are Batman villains now.

BANNON SUBPOENAED - YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS

Just a friendly reminder that Bannon is a loose cannon now. No allegiances left to Trump or Breitbart, and he's a quasi-anarchist who wants to see the whole state collapse.

This should be very interesting...

plus he thinks that he is

plus he isn't very smart

Breaking News. Hillary Clinton found guilty today on 5 counts of laughing her ass off.

But did you guys know that MLK was a leftist? Haha, you've sure been gotten!

Today the price of bitcoin has remained at a constant of 1 BTC per BTC. I don't know if you guys are trolling or are government-industrial complex paid shills trying to stop this phenomena from taking the world by storm by denouncing the "fluctuations" today. It isn't my fault, and it isn't the fault of any of those faithful in the currency of the future that the price of a dollar has been volatile relative to bitcoin today. The dollar inflates and deflates all the time. This isn't the end. This isn't the last you will hear of bitcoin. Remember that when you finally join our rocket to prosperity.

The Selkath are the most neoliberal Star Wars species. While the Sith and Republic were at war in the Jedi Civil War, the Selkath remained neutral and sold vital medicine to both sides of the war, and on their capital surface city had both Republican and Sith embassies within walking distance of each other. They also make gargling fish noises, just like human neoliberals.

Hillary Clinton on shithole countries

But I just didnโ€™t like the sound of her voice.

If only there was a free trade agreement that guaranteed minimum wage and labour standards in developing countries. Hmmmm... ๐Ÿค”

Sigh. Buttery males.

Lol so that means there's no point in improving living standards at all?

Ronald Reagan's view on shithole countries

Ronald Reagan's view on shithole countries

AKHTUALLY Reagan owned slaves and in his time women and black people weren't allowed to vote and immigration was only for "white people of virtue", thus invalidating his position on immigration

If he were still alive, Reagan would be labeled a RINO and chased out of the GOP for advocating amnesty and raising taxes.

MR GORBACHEV, TEAR DOWN THIS

The net effect of Reagan's policies were that marginal rates in 1988 were lower than in 1981.

... But he did at multiple points raise taxes. And in the modern GOP the idea of raising taxes for any reason whatsoever is simply unheard of.

[Reagan's tax cuts] led to higher tax revenue

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

No.

Why would we want to move to a shithole country?

Why would we want to move to a shithole country?

Well that's what Trump ran on; trash talking America and its every facet, from the airports to its citizens. Don't start getting mad now lol

You're going to be really excited then when you see the ads we put up highlighting all the specific pieces of the country and people that are shitholes. Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa, Texas, Joe Arpaio, Trump, you....

Trump is the one that needs to be hanged , for being a traitor .

Sure, we'll take all those states to.

George Washingtonโ€™s view on shithole countries.

George Washingtonโ€™s view on shithole countries.

Yeah, but what about his e-mails?

The US is closer to dying of mass starvation than it is to suffering from overpopulation.

"George Washington supported slavery, therefore his efforts to free America from authoritarianism are meaningless."

"Abraham Lincoln opposed full racial equality, therefore his efforts to free Blacks from slavery are meaningless."

"John Kennedy appealed to white supremacist voters in the south, therefore his efforts to advance Civil Rights are meaningless."

YALL MISSING THE ๐Ÿ”‘๐Ÿ”‘๐Ÿ”‘ KEYWORDS ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
