    IMO, It's all about The Wall (...and other trump issues)

    Want to give government employees a cost of living raise. fund the wall

    Want to save Dreamers, fund the wall

    Want to {insert issue here}, fund the wall

    trump is a sociopath, lacking any signs of empathy, but he understands that withholding empathy can be used a weapon to get what he wants.

    I truly believe that trump could sit and watch the waterboarding of children and feel nothing. This quality allows him to do so many things free from internal conflict than most people feel. If his actions harm millions of people, but he gets what he wants, he feels no internal conflict.

    The manchild is a moron, he want's to throttle twitter, facebook and Google searches for putting out bad news about him, then he disses federal workers by cutting their pay increases, which is bad news. I'm on SS and I don't expect we SS recipients will receive a small raise either, and you're probably correct, it's gotta be about his fucking wall, he calls it national security. I think the son of a bitch has lost his fucking mind.

    And there is total denial what came about to elect Trump. When Trump started his campaign with good paying jobs and make America great again I said he stole what should have been Hillary's slogan. Because Hillary wouldn't throw Obama under the bus about wages and living conditions until after the convention she was stuck. Poor people can't afford "affordable care". Poor people vote. Life styles of the rich and famous is falling short for satisfying hurting families. More than once on this forum I have seen people refer to the poor as that's just the way it is and there will always be poor and the rich get richer. And on the national scene there is no calling for prosperity. The current Democratic slogan should be "I don't know but it's not that".

    And people say: this Government is not a total piece of crap? Sorry but this country refuses to wake up. The system has been broken for along time because lack of proper laws and enforceable rules. Sorry it is already an banana republic for a long time. Lying, cheating, rip offs, corruption that is seemingly "normal" here.
