Back in 2013, our third son was in the U.S. Army, and we were concerned about his next paycheck.   Remember that government shutdown?
Well, it’s January 2018, and here we go again.
By the way, I want to be fair and spread some of the blame here.   This is really another sign of a dysfunctional system that requires 60 votes to order coffee from the cafeteria.
Nevertheless, what was this shutdown really about?
First, it is about Democrats who wanted to spoil President Trump’s first anniversary.   It is the silliest and most cynical of tricks.   In other words, the Democrats are still angry that the voters elected Trump rather than Clinton.
Second, the Democrats are using Hispanics.   Not long ago, they had the votes to pass immigration reform and did not.
Third, there was a deal on the table to legalize some DREAMers and enhance border security.   I support legalizing some of these DREAMers, but it has to be coupled with solutions so that we don’t encourage more people to cross the border.
My guess is that the Democrats will blink.   The backlash will be twofold and put Democrats in a no-win situation:
a) They will hear from Hispanic parents who don’t appreciate their sons being treated like this over DACA.
b) They will also hear from the left, whose foot soldiers do not want to compromise or give in to President Trump over anything.
In the meantime, we see  the GOP closing the gap  on the November 2018 polls.

It's really spending

Here is a fascinating report:    
"The federal government collected record total tax revenues of $443,715,000,000 in the first two months of fiscal 2018 (Oct. 1, 2017 through the end of November), according to the Monthly Treasury Statement.
Despite these record tax revenues, the federal government still ran a deficit of $201,761,000,000 for those same two months.
That is because the government spent $645,476,000,000 in October and November."
So it's all about spending.   We are spending too much money!

May 2006: Remember when Senator Durbin wanted to consult with Mexico before building the border wall?

The US Senate voted for the fence in 2006.    After that, Senator Durbin wanted to consult with Mexico prior to building the fence.

This is not a joke. This is true.

That's sweet. Senator Durbin is such a sweet man.

In a perfect world, neighbors should talk about their problems and border disputes.

However, we do not live in a perfect world.

We live in a world where the Mexican political class won't fix Mexico. Instead, they encourage their citizens to go north, get amnesty and send back lots of "dolares"!

Thankfully, the House killed the silly provision.
