Dan K, exactly the same for me as far as visits. Extended time, same area and getting to know many locals. They do laugh about DT. They don't like him opr his politics. You can find Trump pinatas in a lot of places.
The question still begs: whewre is it going to be built? And the lies continue in the administration. And the GOP doesn't seem to care. Is there a magic number when they finally do care? And Flynn is asking for immunity. Is the wall that really matters starting to crack?

Dan s., relatively "new" to the tune of 10 years or so. Who can ever forget Sledneck? Investigate the Dems all you want folks. But they aren't in power and don't hold much danger by acquiescing to Putin. Virtually every DT pick that carries international decisions also has a Russian buddy or two. And Putin has a long memory and a short fuse. It's possible that if investigations start uncovering some very dangerous stuff, a few of these Trumpers might have accidents. Dead men tell no tales. And besides the total lack of governing talent, obvious by the AHCA failure and immigration fiasco and the gutting of the State and EPA depts. we now find out that Interior Sec. has said "the wall", maybe the stupidest promise, won't be built on US soil!! Don't want to give up the Rio to Mexico. So Mex is paying for it to be built on their side to close the Rio to them. (And who will be the laborers? Nobody builds a better wall than our amigos.). I go to Mexico quite often and they sure don't seem to be that stupid.

Hey everybody, I have an idea. Forget taxes and health care. Those things and several others might just blow around the ground the way our government now works. How about the 400 lb gorilla & the elephant in the room? The possible (probable) illegitimacy of this administration. Dan K, you want me to suggest some constructive idea? How about getting rid of Paul the Coward Ryan and several other GOP players and find some with backbones. How about trying to find some people in this administration who haven't talked/colluded/invested/kissed/beholden to a Russian oligarch/banker/spy/KGB/mobster not associated with Putin. Trump loves Putin. Maybe because when you cross or oppose him, you find yourself poisoned or covered in acid or maybe just shot dead in the street. And DT can't do that. Sessions, Flint, Banner, Mannafort and now Kushner all have been "in bed" with some of the most evil people on earth. How many more? I'm sure we'll find more because every day or so new leaks come out.
Are none of you worried about what is being uncovered? Do you think this is some Natl Enquirer story? People are lying (what's new with this group?) and then admitting or having to admit they did talk with Russians. Dan, Fred et al, you shouted about Benghazi. That's a scratch on the knee compared to the possibility of how compromised our country is. Nothing in our history since WWII has the danger to democracy and freedom that this unfolding story has. Nunes has to step down. An independant investigation has to occur. The GOP has to stop lying to itself and the country. They are in power! They won't lose that power even if Rump gets impeached. So why not cowboy up, no...why not Patriot up, and find out how deep this s### river runs? Can you be that unconcerned? Can your heads be any ndeeper in the sand? Taxes and health care may be incedental if this unfolding story is even half right.

Dan K., I do walk the walk. I call my congress folks, I donate to the Sierra Club and the Environmental Defense Fund, I write letters to people and send articles showing both sides. But this administration is making it impossible to see the "other side".
Ken M. I'm not convinced that the rioters @ Berkeley were actually liberals. Very un-liberal like to be black clad and most wearing masks. And what about Trump urging violence @ his rallies? A despicable human being.
What does amaze me is how a person can back someone who out and out lies almost everytime he opens his mouth. And he is never at fault!
Not even 70 days and all he's done is gut the EPA, the State Dept., the Education Dept., ok"d mountain-topping for the coal industry which pollutes more than mining and actually cuts jobs in coal. Oh, and put half his family on the government trough. The Secret Service can't afford Trump. A lot like the country.

Ken Collins 1 month, 3 weeks ago on Joe Roberts: Brust letter prompts questions

Here's a theory regarding the Brust letter. DT never expected/wanted to be Pres. He obviously never knew much about it the way he has acted. One would usually look into a job you are trying for before you actually try to get it. Not in DT's case. He ran for, and now is the Presidency. All he really wanted is to make a lot of money on the whole thing. We are finding out, the more we look into his businesses, that he is entangled all over the world. Most of them seem to be shady deals with some pretty unsavory charactors. If he is ever forced to show his tax returns, it would be it's own "little shop of horrors". I think he'll resign before that happens.
One would be hard pressed to find worse choices for most of his Cabinet appointments. Carson, Pruitt, DeVos, et.al. But he didn't care because he's not planning on lasting out the year. His foil may be the spineless GOP who have such power needs to fill that what is best for America takes a back seat to the corporate sponsors that pay their way. They may keep him in office until they have fulfilled their unpatriotic promises to Big Oil/Pharm and the military suppliers. And to accomplish this, they expect to take away as many voting rights as possible. And all those rights that women have strived so long to attain? Sorry, collaterral damage. So keep talking "fake news" so enough people believe long enough until the truth finally shows it's ugly head.

Ken Collins 1 month, 3 weeks ago on Steve Zansberg: ‘Fake news,’ ‘the lying press’

Well written, Steve. But by your creds, it is to be expected. When your POTUS lies about 77% of the time and the press rebuts those lies, it is not "fake news". It is journalism. When FOX News either defends the lies or never mentions them, that is fake news (no quotes needed). Space does not allow the listing of the lies, just since Jan. 2oth, let alone the campaign.
When your news comes only from FOX, Breitbart, Alex Jones, David Duke and the like, you're living in a "fake reality". Yes, there are left wing news outlets but overall the majority are professional organizations that want the truth to be written. If your side of the story has no provable basis, you're on the wrong side of the argument. This president and his band of syncophants fit that bill quite well.

Ken Collins 2 months, 1 week ago on John Spezia: Scolding unwarranted

Fred, Ken, Dan, Scott,et.al. Listen to DT's latest press conference. The ranting, gibberish, blaming, meandering, self-congrats, the third grade English. The way he treats people is horrible. Sec State Tillerson was not allowed his choice of undersecretary because Abramson had made bad comments of DT. The Sec of State was not told of the immigration ban or the Yemen raid. The Sec of State! There are departments that are draining from people quitting and no one is replacing them. Soon it will be Bannon and the son-in-law and the raving looney Miller only. Flynn's replacement said No. This doesn't worry any of you? DT claims the best El. College victory since RR. It was the worst. He's delusional. There is no other explanation. It's a "fine tuned" first 3 weeks? Yeah, right.

Ken M. Read your piece. Did not know about that. But there doesn't seem to be much comparison to me. It was done in an effort to deal with Hamas in Egypt to try and get a working relationship going. Way different than Flynn and Putin and who knows who else. And the depth of the cover-up seems to pale in comparison to what's going on now. And we've barely scratched the surface.
