The situation on the border is getting #%%(@@ ridiculous. And the pols refuse to jack about it, blaming the president for creating a ‘false’ problem.
If I were him, I’d call the leaders of the house/senate and the Mexican ambassador to the White House. Sitting on the desk would be five dice and a dice cup.
I’d give them six months to pass immigration, get the necessary funding for the wall and adequate personnel, and give the same six months to the ambassador to have Mexico get their act together and stop letting the people through, instead actually obeying the UN asylum rules.
When they start protesting, I’d pick up a die, drop it in the cup, then the next, until all five are in the cup then I’d explain that the first month, the border would be closed on a particular day between the 1st and the 6th for between one and six days. The second month, two dice. Same thing. The third month three dice, the fourth, four dice, the fifth, five dice. And the total number on the second roll would be the number of days the border would be closed.
If at six months, nothing had happened, the border would be closed and remain closed until the immigration and other things were fixed. Then I’d slam the dice cup down, and throw them out of the office.
Geez… Can’t these f**kers put politics aside for even a f**king WEEK and get shit done? Or do they just not care? I’m about at the point that the Dems and Pubs are nothing but two sides of the same frikkin coin…
Kicking the soapbox back in the corner and going to find my BP meds…
