No - the blame is placed squarely on the shoulders of the Repubs. I have seen polls that demonstrate this. People are not so blind as to ignore that Republicans control Senate, House and the Presidency and this still happened.

What this guy said. Most polls are about 45% blaming the GOP, 25% blaming the dems. I do not know about the other 30%, but I suspect it includes options for blaming "both parties" or "the president"

Hey. I'm rookie. I was here back in the days of Yahweh for a while then left. Then came back for a long while. Then had to go away again early last year. And now I'm back again. So hello again, old friends. And I'm looking forward to meeting new ones.

You're adorable if you think this makes the Democrats look bad.

Ironbite-like super adorable.

It's still a bad look for the democrats. Because they were standing against the funding and now most of them voted for it. People who aren't as invested will probably just see the surface level of that.

And of course the dems get all of the blame for the shut down.

Well the Government is funded and oh hey, the Republicans blinked.  ChIP is funded for the next 6 years and the government gets to keep going for another 3 weeks for the  Turtle to put forth a clean DACA bill otherwise we're right back here.

Ironbite-good game.

Someone needs to follow up on lil Bob Corker's daycare tweet theme, with something along the lines of,

Can the 'adults' in charge of the Daycare Centre please stop rejecting all the bilateral proposals being tabled.



Get to point out Trump is a baby and an imbecile, blame the people actually responsible for the impasse, and possibly also get Trumpy pissed at them. Make Miller the next Bannon, and make Trump massively resentful of Kelly.

A view into how when you dehumanize people with terms like "illegals" they become some far away "other". Some Trump voters are shocked that their friends and members of their community are now being deported.

"But my friends are the good ones!"

Doesn't matter. Donald Trump said he was gonna take the illegals away. And he's taking the illegals away. Really I'm not sure how they didn't see this coming.

To anyone who voted for Donald Trump and is now complaining that he's doing what he said he was gonna do, I say "well fuck, maybe you shouldn't have voted for him then. Actions have consequences, asshole."

Religion and Philosophy / The Jim Bakker Show
« Last post by davedan on January 22, 2018, 02:25:39 am »
I have started to become obsessed with the Jim Bakker show. These guys don't even attempt to pretend they aren't fleecing their congregation. I thought this type of televangelism had started to die out. But it appears to be going strong.
