Good Day World!
The answer to this partial government showdown has been hiding in obvious sight. It's been in the front of our faces all this time but we haven't recognized it.
The only way to solve this result of Trump's temper tantrum is to quit trying to negotiation with him. That's right. It's a waste of time. Democrats need to deal with the people who've made him a puppet...
They need to go to the sources like Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge, and Sean Hannity, to break the deadlock.
As historians will point out one day, there was a bipartisan agreement to open the government with both sides assured that Trump would sign it.
But at the last moment, Ann Coulter attacked Trump and told him he was a sell-out to his base. When Rush Limbaugh chimed in Trump got panicky and called him to reassure him he wouldn't sign the already agreed upon bill.
The rest is history. On day 31 of Trump's shutdown it's apparent Democrats need to change their strategy and deal with who is really running the White House.
A group of far-right activists whose goal is to turn America back to the 1950s when there was no challenge to the wealthy ruling white class who created an alternate America, until the rise of social justice and people like Martin Luther King.
It's a good example of how pathetic the position of president has become. We have a racist troll whose allegiance to himself comes first, and then to his hardcore base.
Setting that aside, it's now a matter of negotiating with talk show hosts to see what it'll take to put 800,000 Americans back to work.
If that doesn't work - and I'm pretty sure it won't (nothing ventured, nothing gained) - then it's up to the Democrats to rally enough senators in Congress to stop this stupid shutdown.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
