And how would you know about Trump's dick size? :lol:
You're continued stance and support of him is sucking his dick.


And the porn star he banged, while married, said it was small.

You know the donks are going to have subliminal messages (Mushroomdick) in their TV commercials that you won't see but your subconscious will.

So Trump called Buttigieg “Alfred E. Neuman” today. :lol:

Probably went right over the millennials’ heads.

I was a YUGE MAD fan as a kid. Some brilliant work in there.

Uncle Joe is being attacked by the far left for saying he’ll push for a middle ground option to the Green New Deal...

Because you’ve got nothing. If you did, you’d explain how a president going back on his word or changing his opinion isn’t a “flip flop”.

Really any politician, we don’t allow them to evolve or change a position when the circumstances change.

We'll likely never grow out of the "Flip-Flop is bad" mentality...
Mostly because the idea of accepting new data and adjusting your thoughts to correlate
is fundamentally anti-religious "I am right, why would I ever change my mind... ever.."

at it's core this kind of open rational application of new information is too "science like"
and played out to it's logical end means the death of hardened ideological nonsense

“Flip flopping” on the government shutdown is just retarded. At SOME point, ONE of the two sides was going to give. Unless you’d rather we still be IN shutdown just so he wouldn’t have been the adult in the room and agreed to open up government again.

And using “Mexico is going to pay” as a flip flop is equally retarded. No sane person with a brainstem actually thought Mexico was cutting us a fucking check for the wall. Now YOU may have believed it, but only you and the dems apparently.

Face it, those are just two really weak, stupid examples of a politician flip flopping. Then again, Trump has been pretty steadfast in his convictions, so that’s really all you (or anyone) can come up with...weak, weak examples.

Changing one’s position isn’t fundamentally bad. It’s just that politicians ONLY do it when it’s politically expedient to do so. Kind of like how all the mainstream dems were all for a wall 5 years ago to stop the “crisis at the border”, but because TRUMP promised a wall, suddenly dems en masse think it’s immoral and inhumane to build a wall. It’s pandering for votes at the basest of levels.....truly pathetic.

Speaking of the shutdown. It was only pushed back to the fall. That shit is still out there and if they can’t come to an agreement, the budget reverts back to 2011 spending levels and $100 billion is cut. That’s not necessarily a bad thing but some heads are gonna roll if it happens and so far, nothing has been moving on it.

Either way, now the Dems do anything they can to torpedo anything border related, including getting on the "Ban ICE" bandwagon and limiting the # of beds in the detention centers. If it was a crisis 5 years ago, it's a crisis that's never been dealt with and is still a crisis....unless it's not politically expedient to BE a crisis...

The Dems passed the funding bill in 2006
and the extended fence (it was called a fence in the bill) was passed in 2006

so I think that was like 13 years ago
