Well I haven't looked at the news all day, so maybe this is what's happening? Either way, good luck with it all.

Not yet. The Doofus won't back off the dumb wall, he throws proposals including the wall, they throw proposals that don't include the wall. The problem is we have a guy who came from a family owned construction/real estate development company in charge. His idea of negotiation is -- if you don't agree with this one thing -- I'll walk away. No compromises. Which you can do with a family run business. You can't do it in a democratic government. Meanwhile the Republican Senators and Congressmen are terrified of overriding, because they could lose their base. So they are basically having a stare down contest or contest of wills, waiting to see who gives up first. Trump is convinced that everyone will forget the shutdown and praise the fact that he stood firm, meanwhile the newly elected Congress is determined not to let him have that wall no matter what. Neither side will compromise on the stupid wall. I sort of wish they'd allow it, have it fail miserably, and then have the American people sue Trump to repay the 5 Billion out of his pension, speaking fees, and paid security detail.

Yep, he has 150 bankrupticies...every time it falls through he declares bankruptcy. That's not going to work here. I'm predicting impeachment hearings in late 2019, early 2020. And it will be much worse than Watergate.

I'm just hoping it doesn't tank our economy along with it. But something tells me it's going to.
2019 is going to a really hard year.

LOL! Our governments appear to be in a race to see who can do it first. At this point, it's a toss-up, on who will win.
