    On another note, does this mean the SOTU is back on? and could that be Trump's reasoning for this last minute cave?

    Man, it wouldn't be worth stopping the shut down, but at least having his SOTU would have been something to gain. I do not feel like Trump is very good at this whole negotiation thing at all.

    Dems told him that they will negotiate on the wall when the government reopens. Now we will see if they do or not. If not, the next shutdown is all on them.

    They will negotiate, but that doesn't mean they will come to an agreement. I doubt they will unless Trump offers something juicy or caves.

    I suspect that Democrats will offer the same thing they did last February -- permanent DACA laws in exchange for billions more in border funding.

    What do you think of my Alternative Wall Theory?

    An alternative wall..... to The Donald's Mexico - USA wall would include......
    a massive ocean water desalination facility plus.......

    a huge fish farm.... that extends along much of the alternative wall.........
    infinite financing for the project will be made possible once we humans line up our
    valuation of human life..... and all life..... more so along the line of how the being of light of
    NDE fame views life..........

    (Did you know that ONE nation has experienced COOLING IN ITS CLIMATE SINCE 1950)? That same nation led the world, on a per capita basis in planting trees and in desalination of ocean water for agriculture, reforestation projects and for towns experiencing drought. You got it.....ISRAEL!
    You can find this out by Googling Global Dimming.....

    And with 127 TRILLION USA petrodollars in DERIVATIVES out there floating around this might be a good mega-project to divert some of them into?


    Cheap Water from the World’s Largest Modern Seawater Desalination Plant


    Isaiah 35

    The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.


    .....
    Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing; for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

    7 And the glowing sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water: in the habitation of jackals, where they lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.

    True. I think it's cute how they imagine they have any actual leverage here. He's trying to make this a bipartisan effort, but I have no doubt he'll do it alone, if necessary.

    That look on Schumer's face. Christmas came early. Such is the risks with rookie politicians.

    They have leverage, Trump has none. He gave it up at that press conference like a big fat christmas present. I would like to dream you can hear McConnell screaming at that point all the way from the capital or wherever he was at that moment, because so many GOP members must have facepalmed when he did this.

    The comedic part is that if you go on the Fox News Facebook page, the outlet (and supporters) are spinning it as if it's some sort of "win" or "proof of his awesome deal-making skills". It's laughable and sad all at the same time.

    I saw one person post "He's got something up his sleeve...He knows how to play those libs like a fiddle...love my president" (followed by a dozen smiley and heart emojis)

    ...and I'm just thinking to myself...how do people let themselves get that brainwashed?

    If their facebook feed is any indicator of what they're be reporting on...it'll be very little time spent on this, and a whole lot of time talking about how "Indiana is about to pass a bill that will allow Christianity classes in public schools"

    Any time Trump loses at something (like today between caving on this deal, and his buddy Roger getting cuffed), Fox loves to trot out a bunch of non-national news stories about Conservative Wins to distract from it...
