OT  _try_ to keep domestic in the other thread, and foreign in this thread.  just a suggestion.  immigration and the international economy really could be either.

Can you be sunk by someone else, when you weren't seaworthy in the first place?  

I'm sure that Ted Cruz, whose father was insulted by Trump, was in the Freedom Caucus.  Of course the freedom caucus had its own reasons for opposing the plan.

He was sunk by his own party.

Well I'm glad that you are back. You ever argue about sports? People get emotional and loud when comes to "their team" then go have a beer and complain about the politician they both dislike.

Franciscosan is right, I enjoy and it's not personal.

One should remember that the House and the Senate were elected too.  They are not there in order to make Donald Trump's agenda, but they have agendas of their own.  They are smart, intellectually and politically.  Nobody is willing to fall on their sword just to satisfy Trump's ego.  I would like to think that maybe Trump learned that politeness counts for something politically.  I would like to, but I doubt it.

THE White House has denied claims US President Donald Trump has taken an extraordinary step to recoup the “vast sums of money” he believes other countries owe the United States.

According to The Sunday Times, the President handed German Chancellor Angela Merkel a bill for more than $490 billion which he believes his country has been short-changed over military alliance NATO.

The invoice was reportedly presented at the leaders’ meeting last week, in which the President apparently refused to shake Ms Merkel’s hand during a staged photo opportunity.

There used to be a TV ad in Australia for Sun Screen cream. The line was,"It keeps on keeping on."

Reminds me of someone. No names mind you.

One should remember that this is a domestic topic. Smile

Do they have herds of cats down in Australia too?  I don't know about the bill presented to Angela Merkel, I am not saying it's not true, it is hard to keep track of all three rings in this circus at the same time.  But if President Trump is presenting bogus bills to other world leaders, then shouldn't I suspect that my tax bill is bogus as well?  Of course, I have to pay my taxes, but in the world of Trump, the delusion that it *ought to be* fair, goes out the window.
Trump probably would like to collect for the Marshall Plan.  It is like the $1 I loaned to Joey in the third grade.  The 'sell by' date is way overdue.
Shady characters in High School would come up to you and say, "do you remember the $20 you borrowed from me two years ago?  You haven't paid me back yet."  But our shady character is the President.

I don't think it's true anymore than I believe that he refused to shake hands with A. Merkel.

Ever ask yourself why so many world leaders did -nothing- about the impending migrant/refugee crisis?

A conspiracy minded friend of mine (no it isn't me) believes that every muslim waits for the 'call' to walk away from the convenience store and start in on a massive jihad against all westerners and assimilated muslims.
Maybe that's when muslims plan on collecting from the great satan.
