Some days (most) this shit really wears me down.

The media constantly saying 'maybe the only way out is to declare a state of emergency.' Americans polled saying it is the Presidents fault, and then Democrats fault.

I am truly shocked by the collective ignorance of the media and the voting public. This is basic 7th grade Civics knowledge.

Congress sends a bill to President, he signs it or vetoes the bill. Congress overrides veto or not.

That is the only way to resolve this issue, it has been a process used for almost 250 years, successfully. The media is obviously complicit in chipping away at these processes. But I would expect some reporters to constantly bring up the fact that the House is passing bills. The process in the Senate is currently breaking down and cameras should be parked outside of Mitch's office and home until he explains why he is not doing the job he has sworn to perform.

3. That's the problem

It would never make it to tRump's desk because McConnell refuses to bring it to a vote.

5. Exactly

The pressure should be placed on Traitor Mitch!

Make him own his lack of action, we just had an election, this issue was front and center, the media should be hounding him on why he is not listening to the will of the people.

6. Helps me to know its their plan

I read constant chaos day by day is the play book for dictators to purposely keep us too weak to fight them back.

Knowing that I ignore most of what they do, try to not get pulled into the daily trash. Helps to do things besides politics right now itís necessary.

Go for a walk in the woods, the beach. Go out and listen to some live music.

7. good advice

It seems that we are on a path that will not end well. We have a party that is fully compromised by the Russians and both are actively working against all western democracies.

8. Media

The media has been apart of all the problems in the country and never seem to get the message. It is the both sideisms and the blame the dems when it is in front of their stupid faces that their repub senate is not doing their jobs and would rather the courts legislate instead of them. They can end this now and I am sick and tired of hearing commentators say to dems that they could give Trump something and get government working again.

Honestly have none of these people ever raised a toddler.
