With the government shutdown on its 21st day, the merits or demerits of a wall on our southern border is still quite the point of ravenous debate among party lines. Speaker of The House, Nancy Pelosi, has declared that the proposed wall is "immoral," un-American, and would be "old technology."
As we reported here Thursday night on Townhall, freshman Congressman Dan Crenshaw, chose to decline his paycheck because if government employees aren't getting a paycheck, neither should members of Congress.
The Texas Congressman and former U.S. Navy Seal responded yesterday to a tweet regarding a K-Bar knife that sits on his desk with a fallen and fellow SEAL's name engraved on it.

Social media shared some sharp reactions to Pelosi's tunnel comment:

Congressman Crenshaw retweeted the message, along with a comment blasting Pelosi over the "tunnel myth." The up-and-coming GOP star continued by stating "because it’s so easy to build tunnels. No one would ever notice."
"Might as well just do nothing, now that the tunneling option has been exposed."
