What hath God wrought?

“Sure, I can send that message, but I think they already got it.”

Anybody who didn’t see this coming hasn’t been paying attention. Dude telegraphed this shit like ol’ Sam’l Morse.

Sure, there are legal options to explore. But this dude likes getting sued. Especially when he’s spending other people’s money on both sides of the argument.

    Sorry Puerto Rico and Paradise, you’re shit out of luck. The man child, supported by his pet turtle, has been chosen by god to build a wall with the money appropriated to help you recover from a real emergency. And, with an eye on the caption above, I have already sent another notice about budgeting to my representative and senators. It makes me feel a little better anyway. Now, back to drinking.

      Aaron Blake at the WaPo makes an excellent point about short-term “fixes” that lead to larger messes down the road.

      “Everyone seems to be taking the easy way out, but depending upon how this all shakes out, it could mean changing the balance of power between the legislative and executive branches for years and decades to come.”

      Congress keeps handing hammers to the executive, yet they wonder why they keep getting nailed.

        There’s a 2% chance that, once the grown ups are in charge, someone will right the ship, and emplace limits on what the exec can reallocate. And I might be off by 1.99% there.

      Total solidarity with POB. Going between two red wines of serious substance here tonight in search of truths that elude the sober. I’ll let you know how it pans out. Meanwhile in the background Willie Nelsons “I never cared for you” is summing up my thoughts about our elected idiots while I cook dinner.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      This must be how the sonofabitch got his deals done in the private sector: Deploy so much stupid shit so fast and from so many different directions that the other party throws up his hands in exasperation and goes, “Jesus, all right, whatever, fuck, I gotta get away from this asshole.”

      The Turtle wants to get back to packing the courts with Federalist Society fucksticks. Pelosi is training the new young Jedi. Everybody else is running for president.

  2. SAO' Says:

    There was a day when moderate rethuglicans would have a conniption about the executive branch declaring an emergency and then stealing from Peter to pay for Paul’s bullshit project.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Remember, it’s only an executive overreach if a Democrat does it. That’s in the Constitution. I’m not sure where, but it must be in there somewhere.

      • SteveO’ Says:

        Democrats should start leaking draft national emergency statements dated 2021. Things like, not enough yoga in our public schools, or mandating the McDonald’s puts organic, free range kale on their Big Macs

  3. JD Dallager Says:

    Meanwhile, our national deficit just popped thru the $22 T-R-I-L-L-I-O-N mark. Our elected leaders of all stripes just continue to feed the voracious appetite of their constituents. That would be “we”.

    I started to look at how many hours at minimum wage one would have to work to pay that off……..it’s bigger than the our galaxy’s dimensions in miles.

    And that’s with zero interest (interest being a financial term in this case….not the electorate’s “interest” in/concern over the national debt).

    The true National Emergency resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW… when he’s not out golfing.

    Only the best people.

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe alleged that former Attorney General Jeff Sessions once said the bureau was better off when it “only hired Irishmen,” according to a copy of his new book seen by The Washington Post.

    “They were drunks but they could be trusted. Not like all those new people with nose rings and tattoos — who knows what they’re doing?” McCabe reportedly quoted Sessions as saying in his new book while recounting what it was like to work under him.

  6. David Rees Says:

    I’ve just gotten to the point where I just weep… I can’t watch or listen to this shit to any more.

  7. Pat O'Brien Says:

    Martial law coming soon to border cities in the USA. If you live on the ocean, that includes you. Canada? You betcha. We lost our freedom on 9/11, and it ain’t coming back. Show me your papers.
