The American government system is so weird. It's like it's run by aliens.

I was listening to a podcast about this; the system is designed for gridlock meaning that its designed to move as slow as possible. This is good because corrupt ideas will have extreme difficulty getting put into place. Its bad because change is also difficult.

It's embarrassing. 800,000 U.S. government employees aren't getting paid because the president is having a tantrum.
It's like asking for a slight hint of apocalypse.

I didn't think he'd actually try to implement it in his presidency. Its crazy that he actually is going through with it and possibly genuinely believes that Mexico is going to pay for it. 

Although I suppose you could make an actual argument for the wall if the illegal immigrants are costing the U.S as much as Trump says they are (and the wall will prevent it from happening). The wall would eventually pay for itself in the long-run (assuming that maintenance costs wouldn't be greater than the costs it prevents). But I think there are probably less expensive alternatives.

We live in interesting times.

My government killed a man for no reason. They had no proof he was involved in 9/11 no one even charged him with it. He was never indicted, arrested or tried for the 1998 bombings but was gunned down like a dog in the street. One day we will find out the truth about 9/11.
