It’s so entertaining watching rwnj’s lurching back and forth when it comes to personal rights, and states rights.
Btw, is that prototype for the wall the one they sawed through like it was butter?
What is there to negotiate? Last year they offered 25 billion for border security in exchange for DACA protection and the GOP said no.
The Dems floated a clean CR to reopen the government and McConnel said it was a non-starter and refused to bring it to a vote.
But Trump wants to negotiate? If I say I want to sleep with another man's wife and he says "no way!," so I ask for oral sex instead, are we negotiating?
There isn't going to be any money for the wall negotiated through a government shutdown. The sooner Trump and the GOP get that, the sooner we can open the government.
A prototype comes before a design?
That's news to me and I work with design and prototyping. For the last 40+ years I apparently have been doing things backwards, designing a prototype before I built it.
What you are seeing is a render of a design. Prototypes are actual physical structures.
So your complaint is that Trump has left room to negotiate?
The US-Mexico border, on the US side. That border is exactly defined... it's not just a geographic area.
Ports of Entry.
We need restrooms now? It's not a mall. I'm sure they'll use Porta-Potties during construction.
No real need... most of that border is desert. You just drive to it.
I think the desert snakes can still get between the slats.
The landowner will get a notice that their property is being seized for purposes of Eminent Domain, with an accompanying check for the value of the land.

So rather than do something useful you'd rather everybody take a vacation while holding the country ransom?
Seems to me that they're doing something constructive , what would you suggest they do given the outcome of their last meeting ?
Of the 30 members who took the trip how many are considered part of the actual leadership of the Democrats ?

We just need to get rid of @500 more and keep the government shut down.
Might even make America great again if we did that.
You are in favor of the U.S. President making all the decisions...whomever he/she might be?
Prototypes come before a final decision on a design is made.
I saw several structures, all of which were breached.
Has Trump submitted a budget of how he intends to spend this $5.6 billion dollars? He hasn't even totally spent the $1.6 that Congress gave him last year, for research and development.
This is a statement that displays your true ignorance. I..Just...Can't...Even!
So nearsighted. So dumb! So inhumane. This isn't "Noah's Ark".
Storage, garages, hangers, power stations, lookout stations, housing for border patrol, fire and other emergency services, etc.
LOL. More of your geographic smarts on display! "They just turn left! They usually turn "left". LOL
What a brilliant display of your environmental smarts!
Your plan is...
the wall/fence design isn't firm
where this structure will go isn't confirmed
It's going to take a whole lot more that $6 billion dollars to actually build
and to maintain
Congress hasn't okayed any new land grabs.
I guess being a self proclaimed “redneck” you have never heard of battery powered tools. They are all the rage these days.
here is another one, you don’t need electricity for oxy acetylene either.
This is a planned PAC meeting; it's for a weekend (Congress isn't in session) and they were also there to look at the recovery effort (remember Trump pulled out FEMA and has been talking about cutting funds to Puerto Rico) AND they paid for the Hamilton tickets themselves -- it's a fundraiser that goes directly to the people of Puerto Rico (arts charity.)
