Trump putting out feelers in the event of a premature departure of RBG. RBG has now missed a few of days of oral arguments.

Trump visits border today in McAllen. Mexico discovered 20 or so bodies on its side. Apparently a drug gang shoot out.

Government still shut down.

Stock market has recovered a lot of what it lost at the end of the year.

House investigations on Trump starting.

FBI opened its own investigation of Trump after he fired Comey. They were concerned Trump was working for Russia.

Should the FBI now investigate itself for leading an attempted coup?

CNN REPORTS A GRISLY SCENE NEAR THE BORDER HOURS AFTER JIM ACOSTA TOOK A SELFIE VIDEO BOASTING OF TRANQUILITY
Mexican authorities discovered five abandoned vehicles and at least 20 bodies at a rural location 56 miles west of McAllen, Texas, Wednesday, CNN reported.

News of the discovery came just hours after CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta reported on the area’s apparent safety and tranquility.
FLASHBACK: DEMOCRATS BUILT TALL FENCE TO KEEP PROTESTERS OUT OF THEIR 2016 CONVENTION
The Democratic National Committee embraced the idea of border protection in 2016 — as long as that border was around the building housing its national convention.

Protesters against the Democratic Party’s nomination of Hillary Clinton were met with tall fencing around the perimeter of the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia during July 2016.

If we didn't have idiots voting...
The results of the recent Houston and Harris County elections would be very different. I think it may be time to move.
That's a good idea. Living in a large urban areas in Texas is lingchi. That's not going to change in our lifetimes without some cataclysmic event. I worry rural areas aren't far behind if state level politics continues on this path, but I'm not willing to give up that fight. However, sometimes I think I'm just kidding myself that Texans can stem the socialist tide in our state, vener mind national politics.

5 Trump impeachment scenarios.
These scenarios ignore prospects from the Mueller report and also from the investigations the Dems are getting underway.
Our system sure works in strange and mysterious ways...

Trump feeds National Champion Clemson team fast food from his own pocket due to government shutdown. Trump is a Big Mac fan like me.

I wished he would have allowed her to leave the Country and then call the plane back without her.
