Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) criticized President Trump to his face on Tuesday for saying he would “love to see a shutdown” during a meeting with lawmakers and administration officials.

How many times does this make where Trump cheered on government shutdowns? 


How many shutdowns did Trump cause?

Not to quibble with the overall argument, but 1968 is the high point in US history?

- Vietnam: Tet Offensive, Mai Lai, generally anti-war protests everywhere...
- Nixon Elected
- MLK shot
- Robert Kennedy shot

Generally,  I think of the years between about 1967-1975 as years the US managed simply to survive through.

I think he means that the minimum wage was at it's highest relative value. Worth the equivalent of $8.68 in 2016 dollars.

Really??   Yeah, I have talked about most of that stuff previously. 

And I know you understand context better than that....

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

such a whiney assed b!tch.  Calls those who didn't applaud for him at the SOTU treasonous and unAmerican.  And NOW he wants a military parade.  Who does that sound like to you?

For real people. The government is potentially spying (I am being generous) on American citizens everyday and this is what we are concerned about.

Ever been to an air show, Fleet Week, Blue Angels, and pretty much any military town around the 4th of July. Yes, we do "do this" all the time. All be it recently many of the air shows have been reduced or eliminated due to budget cuts.

If I may, "yeah, but..."

We DO have military parades, and (rightly) other events that both show our military strength and highlight and show appreciation for our armed forces.  And that is great.  The difference - and I think you understand it - is why Trump is calling for it.  Trump is, and has always been, about visceral personal power.  It's evident in his "treason" comments, and this call for a parade in Washington.  It's not about Country, it's about him.

But in the end, I agree with you.  This parade isn't going to happen, and we have much more important things to worry about, like Russian involvement in our elections... 

Sorry, just being a smart-@$$ on that last one.  Couldn't resist.  Wink

Russia offers illegally hacked emails to the Trump campaign, and Trumpers respond "great news!" and set up meetings.

Adam Schiff is offered naked photos of Trump and calls the House Intelligence Committee and the FBI.

Can you see the difference? No, of course you can't because MAGA!

And yet, in your smart-a$$ - ness, you managed to accurately convey a vast world of truth.

Nonono   asparagus swears that 1.60 inflation adjusted is $15...   Not almost $12.

Mode importantly, no one ever claimed minimum wage was meant to be a long term career choice.  I don't believe that minimum wage was ever supposed to be a "living wage."

I dunno, I can picture Trump with his reviewing stand, Howitzers, tanks, etc.

When President Ego mentions a military parade, it takes on a different connotation in my mind than for any other leader we've had.

But I like your passive aggressiveness. 

And on the subject of parades, the title of this from Ace nails it:
