    crazy story about a 1950's tv show and Walter Trump on a wall

    https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/tr...cK5ekLAL1AVXaI

    An episode of the 1950s western TV series 'Trackdown' featured a snake oil salesman named 'Trump' who promised to build a wall in order to prevent the end of the world.

    Make no mistake Trump doesn't care anything about building a wall. He wants it to remain for a 2020 campaign issue and distract us from the fact that Paul Manafort sent campaign data directly to the Russians to enable them to utilize it in their attempt to put their thumb on the scale for Trump. This would be called Treason in any previous period of American history.
    I think he sees the wall as a battle for his political survival. I think he's afraid he'll never hold his base without having something at least to show for it. That's the real reason for the line in the sand...

    Wall Prototype Can be Cut with Saw

    President Donald Trump has repeatedly advocated for a steel slat design for his border wall, which he described as "absolutely critical to border security" in his Oval Office address to the nation Tuesday. But Department of Homeland Security testing of a steel slat prototype proved it could be cut through with a saw, according to a report by DHS.A photo exclusively obtained by NBC News shows the results of the test after military and Border Patrol personnel were instructed to attempt to destroy the barriers with common tools.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    I agree. Why can't we have a candidate who is popular enough that they can win by a landslide?

    Some blame the voters, but I put it on the people involved in the political machine.

    Too much money involved in the industry of politics.

    Too late to change it now. The fox is guarding the hen house......

    Unless we have a revolution (?)

    in part because tons of people keep wanting to vote for white nationalists/religious zealots/folks who don't want government to function other than to further entrench power and wealth

    you have your "revolution". we are being forced to live with it now. how is that working out? (we know you are personally doing fine)

    Your comment that I bolded is what I referred to when I said some blame it on the voters.

    I contend that many of these same people voted for Barack Obama. I know some of them personally.

    I feel it always comes down to giving the voters good choices.

    When the term "clown car" is used in reference to your pool of political candidates....I don't see how you can blame the voters.

    I have more to say but will stop for now.

    So we can blame Dems for all this since they picked HC as their candidate. /bluefont

    I truly believe that almost anyone else would have defeated Trump but, no, they had to pick the most polarizing woman in the country.
