The Factory of Sadness Strikes Back

Updated on March 4, 2019

Edited by Derek Gutierrez

A Tale of Two Conceiving Paths

The Factory of Sadness has stricken once again. With Democrats making gains in the House a sense of ego has emerged in the party.

This isn't a one-man team so it's not just Trump fault for this gain, Republicans couldn’t defend crucial areas in the country with all of the money at their disposal. Perhaps the Republicans should try condoms next time, those at least defend you from something. They allowed the Democrats to experience the worst sin of them all, pretending they have a strong party.

The wise old elders in the party such as Beto ‘O Rourke and Elizabeth Warren have tried to stay relevant and young by posting Instagram videos of them drinking beer and going to the dentist. It's about as corny as Hillary saying “Pokemon go to the polls“.

This story begins with the underachieving Democrats being chirped at by Donald Trump. The God King himself made an address to the nation a couple of weeks ago talking about the reasons for the government shutdown and why a wall will be a necessity to the United States. Trump is looking for five billion dollars for the wall.

One person was clearly not enough for this response, we need two veterans to act upon this attack. The Democrats choice, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Instead of Schummer deciding to talk about how his girlfriend left in college at graduation speeches, he decides to unite with Pelosi to deliver this rebuke of Trump’s remarks.



The Butt Fumble

The New York Jets should take notes at this level of butt fumbling, to start, Pelosi states “...We all agree we need to secure our borders…” she later talked about improving our infrastructure and making new technology to scan cars and trucks. The real question is, why aren’t Democrats proposing these policies in Congress? If you claim to support it why don't you offer that as a counteroffer to Trump? At no point in either speech do they explain why the wall is unnecessary.

Democrats are performing magic by disappearing the past eight years, any remark about temper tantrums can easily be pointed back at Obama who did it just a little more quietly. Schumer has had a history especially in 2009 of supporting an increase in border fence spending. What changed? Trump became president.


Obsolete Programs

Alcohol Anonymous would be banging on Democrats doors if they drank like how they spend. Here are a few examples of that addiction:


-Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA)

Established to reduce the number of nuclear weapons the Soviet Union was aiming at us. According to the American Heritage Foundation not only did the numbers increase but the Soviet Union doesn't even exist anymore. Why should we spend $42 million on that and not towards a wall.


-U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)

Established to catalog the geology of the United States. We pay about $3.4 billion in five years to this program that main purpose is to make maps. Nothing a private company can’t do.


-Rural Electrification Administration (REA)

Established to deliver electricity into rural areas. Just about everyone in the United States has electricity. While some find it difficult to pay for it that isn't the question at hand, this is just to simply give citizens the capability of using electricity. $1.8 billion out the drain.


Build The Wall

While these aren't all of the ways our governments waste our money there's ultimately a bigger issue at hand with the wall debate. The biggest issue is that you simply don’t know who is crossing the border, both the left and the right want you to think they're all a certain way but the bottom line is that we all simply don't know.

Many argue that legal immigrants have a lower crime rate than the actual population but that's simply not what we’re talking about right now. We are talking about people illegally crossing the border.

In all honesty, though we shouldn't put the blame on Democrats for the wall not being built. That goes directly to Trump. He had power in every branch of government yet he decided to run around in circles for two years tweeting about benign issues. While it may be seen as heresy to criticize Trump it is the right move to make.

      @ptosis, at the end of the article I state how it is Trumps fault that the wall hasn’t been built. His lack of using the bully pulpit has made this situation bad for him. It is also bad that Trump follows Fox News religiously and goes along with whatever they say about an issue.

      DECEMBER 20, 2018, Cornyn, predicted that Trump would sign the bipartisan bill that included 1.3B for border security.

      But then Fox and Friends blasted Trump's seeming capitulation on the border wall and Trump reversed himself.

      Explain how a GOP controlled Congress was unable to pass a bill for 2 years, but is now the Democrats fault for Trump's lack of leadership and integrity?
