If the Canadians had sent pizzas with pineapple on them, I wonder if that would be the Canadian equivalent of putting a horse head in someone’s bed.

No... that would be putting peameal bacon instead of ham on a Hawaiian (what we Canadians call a ham and pineapple pizza)pizza...

We'd only call it Freedom Pizza if we thought it had been invented in France.

One could claim invention in French Quebec and maybe that would be close enough. Though one would have to hope that the target audience does not know that it was actually British Columbia, IIRC.

It was a long, cold, hard winter a few years ago. Not everyone made it.

Just wanted to mention here that apparently food banks are feeling some strain because of the he shutdown. There's been a significant increase in people needing food. I plan to donate money, and also take some food to donate with the kids. (I know money donations go farther, but the kids need the concrete experience to get it.)

And while we’re back OT, I just want to note that what is particularly frustrating to me is the dichotomy of "Who's to blame, Trump or the Democrats?"

How about the Republicans in Congress? Have people forgotten the whole thing in the Constitution about overriding a presidential veto with a two thirds majority? This is a crisis set up by Trump and perpetuated by the Republican senators and representatives who are standing back and shrugging as if they’re willing to get together and vote just as soon as the President and those Democrats come to an agreement.

It’s bullshit. It’s complete and utter bullshit and I’m pissed to no end that they are getting a pass on this.

ASL, I am entirely in agreement with you on this.

Republicans in Congress are refusing to do their job. (Well, at least most of them are. Whether a handful of the Republican Senators are leaning on McConnell I don't know; but obviously not enough of them are to budge him.)

Well of course they can't do anything that would upset Trump. Isn't that the point of the American political system, to do whatever the president wants, as long as he is a Republican?

Can't override a veto if no legislation goes to the President in the first place.

The cause of the shutdown is Trump; there should be no debate. He had two years of Republican majorities in both houses; both houses quickly turned to kiss his considerable hienie. If he really wanted monies for the wall, he would have asked for it during his first two years. It is obvious to anyone with two brain cells to rub together that this is a political move on his part to keep the people who voted for him happy.

Now, why is it still ongoing? Because Mitch McConnell has the spine of an earthworm. He won't even bring anything up for debate unless Herr Trump would be willing to sign it.

Anyone blaming the Democrats for the government shutdown obviously had their mind made up long before it even started. I am a little disappointed that Pelosi allowed Trump to steal the high-road by publicly offering to trade wall funding for a DACA extension. Granted, it's a bad deal - permanent Wall project for Temporary DACA, but it now looks like he's the deal-maker and she's the stonewaller. If she had come out with "$6b (firm limit) for the wall in exchange for permanent DACA", he'd look like the stubborn baby he is.
