The Wall


Since Donald Trump took office not a single inch of new wall has been built. Some of the old wall has been repaired, but no new wall has been constructed. Congress has just agreed upon $1.7 billion for border security, none of which entails a concrete wall promised during the election. Previously, President Trump turned down sufficient funds to build 123 miles of new wall but Congress has just agreed to fund 65 miles of new wall specifically not concrete. More demonstration of the inferior bargaining ability of the president. None of the right wingers here will believe this. They will, instead, listen intently to the bullshit flowing unheeded from the lips of the President. It's an addiction.

Prejudice cannot be conquered with logic, logic didn't instill it and logic cannot eradicate it.

I don't thinks it's addiction, but Faith.....or maybe they are one and the same.........If a person believes they will be saved and have everlasting life in paradise.,....all that stuff that requires Faith in order to keep believing........I don't think it's so far-fetched to see how they can just expand that mind-set to include Trump..........Maybe they're addicted to faith.......it makes them feel all hopeful and warm and fuzzy inside.......why just keep it for church? ..........why not enter that state of bliss at political rallies too......Hell, it feels good and Trump preaches.......his rallies sound just like a Revival Meeting........Yee-Haw ....MAGA JEEZUS SAVES

After all his lies, insults, accusations, hypocrisy, hate filled rallies, watching t.v. instead of reading briefings, racism, unbearable demeanor, etc. etc. etc., I'm starting to think that the people still supporting Trump are just as dangerous as he is. You can't reason with any of them. They refuse to see what damage they're doing.

At the time the economy is going well.. the government can push it.. any President, at any time.. but none, but Trump has done it..WHY?
Believe or not , whether a President is Liberal or conservative..each sees the repercussion from government interference, in the economy..
Much like government entitlements for the poor.. once you do it.. you're almost stuck to continuing it...
There is only so many pushes Trump can make..once made and then stopped the economy will correct itself..that's the nature of capitalism.

To Trump supporters.. Although much of his support depends on hate and fear..
The economy is what most hang their hat on.

Trump thinks in terms of immediacy not long term.. His actions for the economy did what they intended, in the short term. But without the ability to sustain those kinds of actions.. the economy will correct itself..
What happens then?

For most.... those that hate and live in fear will believe Trump and blame the Democrats.. Those that don't fear and hate, may find another excuse..
But it's simple really.. if one can believe in the out and out lies , that Trump tells.
Then how can we hope they will see the light.

The prattling of people that only echo the media talking points who refuse to look at facts and reality, is a lot of hot air.Simple logic is lost and understanding doesn't exist. You cannot reason with a fool; all you can do is leave him to his own devices and hope he doesn't hurt himself and others.

Every one is entitled to his own opinion. Facts are unalterable.

    Quoting Rich1937:

Finally, you've seen the light about Trump. It took you a while, but I knew you'd come around.
