The Wednesday Read: The Three Stooges

A single lie discovered is enough to create doubt in every truth expressed. –Anonymous

In a perfect world, Republican President Donald Trump would say he wanted $5.7 billion for a border wall and Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi would counter with a $3 billion offer. They would then find a compromise somewhere in between and we’d all live happily ever after.
