So I guess the Mexicans are NOT paying for it?

Courtesy of The Hill:

Rep. Diane Black (R- Tenn.) has introduced legislation that would create a “border wall trust fund,” allowing people to donate money towards President Trump’s border wall.

The Border Wall Trust Fund Act would “allow the Secretary of the Treasury to accept public donations to fund the construction of a barrier on the border between the United States and Mexico, and for other purposes.”

Appearing on Fox News on Monday afternoon, Black said the bill would allow those “who really want to see a secure border” to donate to a trust to raise money for the security measure.

“What happened to Mexico paying for it?” Fox’s Harris Faulkner asked.

“I would like for Mexico to pay for that, and I’m not close enough to the administration to see what kind of pressure they’re putting on them,” said Black, who is running for governor in Tennessee.

Black said that since she’s announced the legislation, she’s received a lot of positive responses from Americans who told her they would “be willing to help fund the wall.” If the bill is passed, Black said she and her husband would be the first to donate.

So first the Mexicans were going to pay for this, then Trump tried to get the taxpayers to pay for it, and now we are crowdsourcing border security? 

Next, they will probably just ask Trump supporters to stand along the border, link arms, and physically keep the immigrants from crossing over.

    Let the stupid trump supporters pay for it, less money for the candidates. What happens if they don’t get enough money, a refund? Do they get a gold plaque with their name on it attached to the wall?

    the tunnels are already built, this wall is not doing to do a thing except destroy the migration of animals.

    “Gorsuch’s assertion that “employees and employers” “agree” upon arbitration does not comport with reality. Later, he put forward another farcical claim, claiming that an employer and employee may agree to “individualized arbitration procedures of their own design.” And throughout his opinion, he maintained the fiction that both employers and employees are free “to contract for bilateral arbitration” in order to spare them both the expense of litigation.”

    OT?
    ““There’s going to be an enormous range of premium increases for 2019,” Larry Levitt of the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation tells Yahoo Finance. “Insurers are pointing toward actions by Congress and the Trump administration that will undermine the market and increase premiums. Bearing the brunt will be middle-class people who buy individual policies and don’t get subsidies under the ACA.””There are ways to fix the disproportionately high cost of insurance for unsubsidized middle-class consumers in the individual market. Congress could raise the income limits for subsidies under the ACA. It could reestablish cost-sharing payments to insurers that Trump abrogated last year. It could also reinstate a “reinsurance” program for the ACA that was temporarily in effect from 2014 through 2016 and did help stabilize some premiums. “It’s a very fixable problem,” ”

    Where to even start with this moron.

    Her Gubernatorial platform should be: “I, SYSTEM ERROR. I, IGNORANCE ALERT.”
    As long as her head is crammed into her Bible with her savior/idol Jesus, she will NEVER accurately see.

    “Erickson wrote on Twitter that he found Abrams to be, “Super sharp, very witty, and self-deprecating. She’ll be formidable as a candidate.” The praise did not sit well with many of his conservative followers.”
    “Stacey Abrams has black and white support, which she’s been growing for years with her grassroots efforts around the state.”

    I asked Franklin what it meant to her that Abrams had secured the nomination. “It means that we’ve arrived at the twenty-first century,” she said. “Where a woman and an African-American can represent a diverse population of voters.””

    Trump: I will build a wall.

    Mexicans: We build ladders.

    Mexicans: We build tunnels.

    Mexicans: Aw, fuck it. Who wants to go over to that swamp?
