Congress Blocks Trump's National Emergency Declaration To Build The Wall

The Republican-controlled Senate approved a resolution to terminate President Trump's national emergency declaration at the U.S. Mexico border, putting Congress on a path to its first veto confrontation with the Trump administration.

Twelve Republicans voted with all Senate Democrats to approve the resolution. The Democratic-controlled House approved it last month, 245 to 182, with just 13 House Republicans breaking with the White House.

On the transparency of blocking


I will preface this by saying that I completely understand why blocking is not a visible thing. I get it, I'm not arguing it. There are unbalanced creepers out there who would probably do something particularly nasty if they knew that the object of their stalking had blocked them.

That being said... I wish I could see when someone had blocked me, because while I might continue to read their posts, I wouldn't bother commenting, or otherwise attempting to engage them in conversation.

Which, aside from "feed" accounts like RSS feeds or news feeds, is pretty much the primary reason why I participate in social media: to engage with interesting people. So knowing whether they're not responding because they aren't seeing my comments, or because they're seeing them and actively ignoring them, or because they're seeing them and just choosing not to respond, would be useful information for me, and potentially beneficial for them.

Like I said, I get it. This is just me musing.
