    Isn't the spin that they wanted to keep drugs out and killed it as soon as they realized it didn't work? That would allow them to say that keeping "rapists" out is A, racist and B, won't work so that it's C, a huge waste of money.

    Making it a racist vanity project.


    Anyhow, did Trump go on TV and then do nothing? I thought he was going to declare a state of emergency and then build the fucking wall. That didn't happen did it?

    So he blinked?

    Again though, I donít really see how they can argue itís unnecessary or racist as they wanted the same thing on, even if it wasnít on the same scale.

    Unrealistic, unpragmatic etc ok.
    I don't think the argument is that the wall is inherently racist, as it's no more inherently racist than any other form of border control, but rather support for the wall is driven by racist fears and prejudices.

    For example a lot of the arguments for stronger border control are premised on ilegal immigrants being, on average, more violent/criminal. The rhetoric on the right is that each US citizen killed by an illegal immigrant is blood on the hands of the democrats for playing politics and not supporting the wall.

    This is of course a failure to grasp statistics and stokes racist fears but it gives Trump something to do.

    All this palaver because his Base is throwing a mass tantrum over America's 'browning' and want a massive white elephant erected in protest and as a symbolic expression of their fear and hatred of 'them'...

    The 700 mile fence thing has some nuance to it as well. It was an all-encompassing bill that had the fence, but also additional resources/manpower at points of entry, increased technology etc etc. Trump is literally just "the wall". He's even directly stated that if it's built they can then have fewer people and less expensive technology at border crossings, claiming that it would "pay for itself in savings" within just a few months.

    Also worth highlighting they haven't reversed position on that either. The bipartisan bill that Trump shot down included funding for extra fencing, just not $5 billion of it and not at the expense of all other border protection methods.

    Which again leads back to my gut feeling that Trump has a method in mind to channel the money to himself.

    I imagine the next step is "I actually said 'Let's-a-go, we'll pay for the wall!', not 'Mexico will pay for the wall' as the fake news reported it"

    She didn't go boofing with peej and dirty sanchez while gobby and rapist sean slammed beers, so clearly she's unfit for public office.

    On planet Incel a cute girl dancing dorkily evokes feelings of hatred and disgust. They thought that would carry over to this dimension.

    She'll probably have to compromise and make some friends if she wants to get anything done, though.

    Obviously any one who dances is a monster, whereas Roy Moore is a person of impeccable character. I imagine that they think Footloose was actually a documentary.

    'Crackpot' creates the impression that he's not fully in control of his mental faculties when in fact he's very sane and knows exactly what he's doing, which is irresponsibly fuel conspiracy theories and the pretend that grieving parents of children that were murdered are actually fucking actors all so he can shill his dodgy merchandise.

    Bit mad that the New York Times is reporting the FBI opened a counter intelligence investigation to see if the sitting President is a Russian asset after Comeyís firing. Canít imagine they've seen much since that would made them think they were wrong.
