without catastrophic results for them.

Fascinating to watch history in the making in real time and up close and personal.

      Seriously, what is the compromise position between "This is a wonderful idea!" and "This is the worst waste of money possible!"

          So the choice is ZERO barrier, or an ocean-to-ocean wall? Who here is supporting no barriers whatsoever? That's another dishonest claim on your part unless you can post a quote.
          • That's not what I wrote...Sprout, Sun Jan 27 6:57am
            The choices are broad. A COMPROMISE choice is SOMEWHERE between what you want, once you decide what that is, and what the other person wants, once you figure out what that is.

              Your post here is more like a correction to your obvious mistakes. Obviously someone reading this: Do you believe that there should be NO physical barriers whatsoever on the border? Do you believe we ... more
        • that's a valid argument? Nope, it's not an argument AT ALL. It's BUPKIS.
        • They clearly do not believe the questions you asked.HeavyHemi**, Sat Jan 26 1:05pm
          And you know based on the fact of the conversations YOU HAVE HAD WITH THEM HERE, they do not insist on NOTHING BEING DONE. So then, we know you just made up a bunch of obvious lies (strawmen) to wail ... more
    • Are you for real ???Sia☺giah, Sat Jan 26 2:15am
      There ALREADY was a "deal" on the table that would have given tRUMP $1.2 BILLION for border security that he REFUSED to sign. For 34 days, Mitch McConnell REFUSED to allow a multitude of HOUSE bills... more
      • Nope...Sprout, Sat Jan 26 11:43am

        • If by "they" you mean Trump and McConnell, suregreenman, Fri Jan 25 3:02pm
          Democrats simply refuse to let the executive hold the government hostage, thereby extorting legislative action favored by his party. It's obvious who's in the wrong here.

            • I guess if you call compromise extortion....Sprout **, Fri Jan 25 4:59pm
              I suggest that NONE are operating 100% in good faith. ALL are acting like spoiled children... Now, if you "REMOVED BY MODERATOR" you might figure it out.
