I believe the past is relevant, sometimes more than others of course. In most cases we are seeing history being repeated, so it is most relevant.

Trump Shutdown v.2019: Day 26

Remember the Berlin Wall? The Iron Curtain?day 26 (1)

Remember when we were ideologically opposed to the symbolism of the 'Iron Curtain' because it was so contrary to our concept of a proud and free nation? Remember when Reagan said "...tear down that wall", in regards to the Berlin Wall.

day 26 (4)

day 26 (3)

In December,2018 Congress had passed a bi-partisan deal when Trump declared he would shutdown the government and Republican’ts pulled the deal over the border wall. Trump and Republicants have called for a shutdown repeatedly for various reasons over the years. He said he would “own this shutdown” and was proud to do it. The same people who called Obama tyrannical for bypassing Congress are applauding the latest of many Trump tantrums: ie., the threat to bypass Congress.

And so ends the latest lesson in Republican logic (hypocrisy).
