We shut down the government for half a business day for you 'Dreamers'

How do you think that will work ?

I always thought we were supposed to get to the yelling, screaming and gnashing of teeth before capitulation begins.

The photo of Patty Murray (idiot-Washington) and Di Fi (older bag lady California) sitting behind Chuck You Schumer as he realizes he backed a weak horse, is priceless. Patty looks like she's sucking on a lemon. Di Fi looks downcast. Chuck You? Well his lips are moving, so he's lying.

On the old thread M-Blu mentioned the sourpuss that is always behind Shecky Schooomer. Our drooling Senator in sneakers is a perfect stand in. Sadly Patty is prolly not qualified to be Shecky's aide, so being our Senator is about two orders of magnitude beyond her capacity.

Has Sarah Sanders started the Press Conference yet?

Just pulled in to the Paris Hotel and can't find it on TV and can't get it on the links at the bottom of the last thread.

I think they knew they would lose on this, but there was so much pressure from the extreme left that they had no choice. Let's hope Trump makes them suffer again in February and again in March and all the way to November.

In honor of ending the shut-down - a bit of humor (from FB)

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week. The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Member of Congress came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Member of Congress was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Members of Congress lined up waiting for a free hair cut

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

Schumer thinks he’s being sneaky by agreeing to an up or down vote on just DACA if there is no comprehensive agreement by February 8th.

The Senate can vote up or down on DACA on the 8th but neither Trump nor the House have to buy in to it.

WH Press gaggle: Will the President commit to citizenship for illegals that you repeatedly refuse to commit to?

Boom! Outta there.

Sanders says that the President will sign the CR as soon as it gets from the Senate to the House and through the House's voting process.

That means that the Senate has changed the language of the CR.

What changed?

TK, its only a 3 week bill (ie, through Feb 8). That lets Flake and Gramnesty pass some bs DACA "compromise" that Chuckie will wave as "bipartisan" in Trump's face during the next shutdown.

All while Lucy holds the football again for the Veranda dwellers.

From the previous thread:

Military special forces based in Florida and U.S. Customs and Border Protection special units spent three weeks trying to breach and scale the eight models in San Diego, using jackhammers, saws, torches and other tools and climbing devices

You can buy 30+ foot ladders at Lowes or Home Depot. Since the highest prototype built was only 30 feet, you would think at least one of the tests would include a 30+ feet long ladder.

Liberals Enraged After Senate Dems Reach Deal With GOP to End Government Shutdown

Many liberals quickly went on Twitter to voice their outrage with Democratic lawmakers for agreeing to a deal, writing that they "caved" by not securing protections for DACA recipients. They also denounced Democrats for trusting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.).

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee, a political action committee that focuses on electing "bold progressives" from the "Elizabeth Warren wing of the Democratic Party" to office, blasted Schumer and Senate Democrats for striking a deal with the GOP.

".@TheDemocrats caved led by weak-kneed, right-of-center Democrats–is why people don't believe the Democratic Party stands for anything. #TrumpShutdown #DreamActNow" the organization tweeted.

.@DFAaction says @SenateDems cave on #TrumpShutdown is "not only a stunning display of moral and political cowardice, it was a strategically incoherent move that demonstrates precisely why so many believe the Democratic Party doesn’t stand for anything." https://t.co/utSai9XYOn pic.twitter.com/GDQUTCXh1k

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I find it very interesting that President Trump hasn't tweeted anything since that re-tweet of suggesting the Republicans invoke the nuclear option.

Also, unlike the democrats, I do not believe Stephen Miller is controlling this at all. The President has had the same position all along.

As far as Lindsey and Durbin, I imagien they brought a "bipartisan" bill which was crap, and that is why the President blew up, since he had said over and over those 3 principles: no chain migration, no lottery, and the Wall.

Going in at 4 for my first of 3 vascular ablations. 6 weeks on my back with 1 hour of PT at that damn rehab facility developed a hard case of neuropathy with feet that feel like numb rocks.

I sure hope this works. Seeing a top vascular surgeon in Southampton. So, I am really confident.

David, Internet Deplorable

Just going through the threads from last night and this morning. I wanted to address the "Mormons hate DJT" comments.

In the same way that Pelosi, Kasich, and other left-wing Democrat politicians don't actually represent the views of your average Catholic voter, you can't let the noise made by Egg McMuffin, Romney, and the other losers make you think that these clowns represent the LDS people generally. All the members of the Church I talk to, both here in Southern CA and in Utah (where I have a lot of extended family) both approve of President Trump and like what he is doing. Unfortunately, there appears to be a very vocal and very small minority of high-profile retards who pretend to speak for the rest of us, and it is as embarrassing as hell for me, because I have to keep apologizing for them. Just remember, no one appointed them spokesmen for Mormons at large, and many of us resent the fact that they are casting the rest of us in a bad light.

My theory is that Flake is being blackmailed, Romney is just PO'd that Trump won and he didn't, and that McMuffin is just a bad Egg.

I don't hold it against LDS because I completely understand. Hey, what can I say - we Catholics have Pope Che!

Momto2

JIB - best of luck - prayers for you that all goes well with your ablation treatment.

My doctor visit this morning brought very good news. He showed me my original MRI from August with 2 very scary gaps in my C2...and compared it to my latest MRI where the 2 gaps are completely gone. He said he considers my neck "healed" and I can go live my life!

Thank you all for the support and prayers over these last months!

David,

Thanks for saying that. I know nothing about what the Church heirarchy guys believe. Every Mormon kid I can think of that I have worked with or flown with have been excellent folks one on one, but when I see the dishonesty of Harry Reid and the sliminess of Jeff Flake it makes one wonder.

Nurses, Doctors, medical folks. I believe I have the flu, but something has been odd. I have the usual aches and pains, and chills, I am sore in all the places I've had joint or bone injuries.
2 and a half years ago, I fell while hiking on the WI-MI border, where I go. I hurt my left shin on some granite, and was sore and a little bloody, and swollen, but it healed. During this flu, it is sore, enflamed and red, and I wonder why that might be. Probably a nerve issue, but I've never heard of this kind of symptom to the flu.
Help!!!!!

JiB: Godspeed, Brother. I have heard that the procedure is effective for some.

What I've done for the neuropathic feet has been two longer term strategies.

1. Chelation therapy using proteolytic enzymes to clear vascular channels.

2. Supplementation including daily (taken at night) r-lipoic acid.

The feeling of walking on numb bloody stumps is gone. The feeling in the balls of my feet has returned with toes just beginning to wake up.

I wish you all of the best.

GUS: get a blood panel done stat. A friend of my son up in Minneapolis was in Las Vegas when the flu hit him at Christmas.

This flu decimates the immune system as any virus will *attempt* to do.

But, my son's friend got this flu and after 3 days developed abcesses on his legs and groin. After 6 days he had abcesses on *PALMS OF HIS HANDS*.

It turned out to be a super bug staph infection.

He didn't verify it with a trip to the doctor until six days passed and he was consumed with fever. His odds of survival now are 60-40 as he is on anti-biotic infusion to fight the infection.

Big strong basketball player. Felled by flu and sacked by the dormant barbarians in his vital organs.

Get the blood work done. Something is going on, brother GUS.

Debbie says Dems gave away leverage as does the radical base.
Nancy, too, if ZeroHedge is accurate:
"... Nancy Pelosi has spoken out against the deal, saying there was no reason to support it: “I don’t see that there’s any reason – I’m speaking personally and hearing from my members – to support what was put forth,” Pelosi said at a press briefing shortly before Schumer signaled Senate Democrats would agree to it."

The state of Alaska has united behind the King Cove community in its fight for the road to Cold Bay. At one point, Alaska’s legislature offered 40,000 acres of state land in exchange for the 500 acres of federal land needed to build the road. That offer was denied.

Zinke struck a new deal, adding one acre to the federal estate in exchange for the 500 acres running through Izembek.

If I understand that correctly, the Obama era Eco-Lefties just talked themselves out of 39,999 acres.

From WEB-MD:
"Trust Your Gut
One of your most powerful tools is your own observation. Most of us have a sense for when a situation is dangerous. If your instinct or intuition tells you it’s serious, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. It’s always better to err on the side of caution when it comes to your health."

Gus, a 911 call would let you explain your situation to someone trained to know if you need help now or can afford to see how things develop.

Good news. Let us know what's up when you can.

Kevlar Kid

Please understand my intent here--- it is to share news re a start-up project of mine with you, my conservative friends (base as it were :> ) not to give some kind of backhanded pitch.

A new partner and I have embarked on a self-financing venture we are calling "The American Cash Union."

We are pro-capitalist, but anti-debt. We are both debt free. And for the foreseeable future we want to protect ourselves from a growingly rapacious and tyrannical state.

The program re-brands an existing system, work at home for cash, that has been around since 2001 to great affect in the lives of 35,000 Americans and counting.

We believe that there is a patriotic layer of citizens who are averse to participating any further in the debt-based economy but who would rather pay cash for everything.

Our system comes complete with IRS workarounds and all income is tax free. If I could get Ivanka Trump's attention this thing would ignite overnight. But I'm not going to spend money trying to get her attentions.

The premise is that many Americans are debt slaves to the global banking cartel. The National Debt sooner or later will devour the real wealth of many unsuspecting citizens.

The American Cash Union is a way to end debt slavery. We both wanted to participate in the MAGA fight; but, we didn't want to get sucked into local organizing frays.

So we are going national with direct mail, e-mail, and other online campaigning.

We are participating in a system of cash generation that anybody can do for as little as $500.

And they can make real cash money tax-free by operating their own system, or allow us to foster that system for them.

We are operating on a cash basis for everything. We buy nothing on unsecured credit (so we do not have to carry wads). I've been in it since May 2017 and it is nothing short of phenomenal. I see its potential to serve a greater political good and help save the country from itself and its appetites.

A DEBT REVOLUTION will have impact.

We are targeting 20,000 Americans as the critical mass needed for it to go viral.

It could become an independent solution to student loan problems where citizens do not have to turn to finance companies to broker deals for a fee in pursuit of "debt forgiveness or reduction" a form of defrauding taxpayers.

Requires a brain and an understanding of how money works.

We're confident. And I feel like have the strength of a bear today. :)

GUS is trusting his gut.
If he can sit around and post here for over an hour, including creating RBG jokes, I'm pretty sure he can drive himself to the doctor.

A 911 call when it's not needed can put someone else's life in danger by tying them up. Those operators don't diagnose over the phone, and have to dispatch when called unless it's for the wrong order at McDonalds.

They are high school graduates who can distinguish between "police, fire or medic," and are skilled at calming panicked people down, and relaying basic CPR instructions. No medical background needed.

So much for "When to call 911" advice online, clara. We've only called 911 once - when lightning struck a tree in the middle of the night and started a fire in the attic. The "BOOM!!" woke us up and hubs went to investigate and saw smoke filtering down. A whole platoon of fire folks piled in while we shivered on the porch, bedraggled and freaked out. First feedback from them was "The media has been called", which only made a bad situation worse.
