This shutdown phenomenon is hard to understand for me. They can't seem to get to an agreement on a certain thing that the president wants, 'so' the government partially stops working and lots of people are affected by it. I don't get why a leads to b. Is it a pressure thing that a president can use or is it just something american that eurotrash like myself can't understand?

It sounds to me a bit like two parents arguing about what couch they should buy and as long as they disagree, they're not gonna feed the kids

spending bills have to be passed and if the president isn't for it, Republicans won't support it because it looks bad politically

indeed Trump is holding the government hostage because he can't get this one thing he wants because he is babby

you kinda get the high ground during these shut downs when you're the party of genuinely not giving a fuck if the gov carries out its functions

the police should be put on mandatory holiday

a gov't shutdown is not a normal tool to use to get the policy you want. it usually happens when the two parties just reach an impasse over something budgetary that prevents a funding bill from passing, which can happen from either the House and Senate not being able to agree on a budget to send to the Pres, or the Pres not liking the funding bill the two houses of Congress have approved.

Shutdowns usually end relatively quickly because no one wants to shoulder the blame of having shut down the government (e.g. the Republicans shut down the government under Obama in 2013, but they flinched after 6 days and capitulated to him). However in this case, Trump has chosen to cause a shutdown in order to achieve a specific policy goal through pressure. That's not normal. And this is also now the longest shutdown in history.

I think under most other democratic governments, the executive administration would dissolve and an election would be called if a budget wasn't passed, right?

To be fair to Trump, it'd be awfully unpleasant to head into a second presidential campaign without having delivered on any of the promises made during the last one.

Yesterday was Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Pence compared Trump to MLK in making a case for their wall. WTF is pence smoking?!

MLK’s Son Criticizes pence: My Father ‘Was a Bridge Builder, Not A Wall Builder’
Martin Luther King III wants the vice president to know that his father would say “love, not hate, will make America great.”

Check out the video in this link for Stone's Tricky Dick impersonation. Apparently one of the first things he did was call into infowars to set the record straight!

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47002713

After his court appearance, Mr Stone spoke on the phone to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on his radio programme Infowars.

"I intend to fight for my life," Mr Stone said as he launched a fundraiser for his legal battle. "There's no circumstance under which I would plead guilty to these charges.

"There's no circumstance under which I would bear false witness to the president."

He added: "Once again, there is no evidence of Russian collusion, Wikileaks collaboration and I'm not charged with doing anything inappropriate or illegal to assist in his [Mr Trump's] election."

Who will Oliver Stone cast as Roger Stone in the inevitable Trump biopic?

I can't think of any famous people named "Stone" other than Stone Cold Steve Austin, so my money's on him.

There will be some deviations from real life for the sake of drama. At the beginning of the third act, Trump collects the final Infinity Stone.

I had the shoes. I had a glove. And I used just a little bit of shoe polish to put on my cheeks and the reason I used a very little bit because – I don’t know if anyone’s ever tried that – you cannot get shoe polish off. I had always liked Michael Jackson. I actually won the contest because I had learned to do the moonwalk.

I mean, if it really isn't him in the photo, I think that maintaining it isn't him, pointing toward an instance in which he did something similar to what he is accused of doing, and apologizing for it, is actually a good thing.

But if it is him in the photo, then copping to a lesser offense is a pretty cynical trick to escape criticism.

I literally just skimmed the story and don't have enough background information to know if he's just very obviously lying or something. But I hope he's telling the truth.

It's extremely bizarre and seems like he is almost certainly lying. He apologized for it, and then the next day said he wasn't in the photo.

Yeah, the fact that he changed his story is pretty suspect.

You better believe I've memorized my alt codes so that I don't have to settle for an en-dash when an em-dash is called for, buddy.

I also use true ellipsis glyphs instead of just typing three full-stops in a row. The difference is meaningful to me.

I already never really watch the State of the Union. It's not like you're going to learn about new policy directions from it. It's really just a ceremonial thing; political theatre.

I just extra didn't watch it this year, because I just felt like lots of people who normally don't watch that sort of thing would watch this one just because Trump is seen as a side-show act. I just didn't want to inflate his viewership.
