US Government Shutdown Watch: 2018 Edition. More Bricks in the Wall?


#1325

Like that but different then.


#1326

I vote for:
McConnell Malarkey


#1327

McConnell blocks a vote on your suggestion, saying that “political stunts are not going to get us anywhere.”


#1328

McConnell’s voice always reminds me of a much more evil, older, more turtle-y George Bailey.


#1329

BAM. George Bailey, and Jimmy Stewart, ruined.


#1330

Turtle Turtle Rule


#1331

Just a reminder, 15 years ago a President was manufacturing a crisis to justify killing over 100k innocent people in Iraq. Most Democrats fell into lock step, and the cost was much much larger than a few billion. Even if Trump isn’t bothering to manufacture the crisis, the present still seems like a significant improvement.

I hope, someday, brother, that you can join me in an endless line of people, joyfully shitting on his grave in an eternal semisolid scatological waterfall of our shared hatred.


#1334

I feel like, for logistical reasons, they’d have to dig him up every few months and move him to an adjacent grave. Future archaeologists will puzzle over the vast swatch of super fertile land.


#1335

What’s Trump’s recent weird thing about wheels? Did someone tell him that wheels are a perfect metaphor for every situation?

“They say a wall is medieval. Well, a wheel is older than a wall. And I looked, and every single car out there, even the really expensive ones that the Secret Service uses — and believe me they are expensive — I said, ‘Do they all have wheels?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Oh. I thought it was medieval.’”

#1337

This is pretty amusing. McConnell is definitely a dick.


#1338

Solution for McConnell: he doesn’t allow it to come to the senate floor for a vote at all.


#1339

I will never be able to look at a waterfall the same way again.


#1340

That is the future liberals want.


#1341

It’s a bit like when Thatcher died, I suggested installing her corpse in a urinal and people pay 10p to take a piss and we could generate the billion quid a week needed to fund the NHS


#1342

It’s fun watching various news media outlets sparring through headlines.


#1343


#1344

He should go out to some place in the desert where there is no wall and show the exact same thing happening.
