    Well Cunt Colbert certainly can't relate to unpaid people. Maybe tips his house cleaners at Xmas though.

    So he has the audacity to recommend bartering? Isn't that a communist thing? I could be wrong. But if it is, isn't that a little suspicious because of who his best friend is?

    "Ask your landlord for odd jobs." "Have a garage sale." "Make a deal with your mortgage bank." This is what the "President" tells federal workers so he can have his latest futile tantrum. Jeeziz Krikes.

    Disagreement shouldn't shut down the government - a politician's job is to work through issues that people disagree about. This shutdown is directly hurting hundreds of thousands of government employees and their families, and it needs to stop.

    A lot of people are still going to work because they can't afford to jeopardize their jobs, and because if they're working, it's guaranteed by law that they'll be paid eventually. In the meantime, it really, really sucks.

    800,000 workers affected. It’s just a number. But add to that number the spouses and children of those workers and you have somewhere around 3 million people directly affected by this government shutdown. If those 3 million were to - peacefully - gather to protest outside the Whitehouse, then there would be a tangible presence - not just a number.
    Maybe then Trump and all politicians from both parties would be able to see and understand what their lack of action is really doing.

    "I can relate." Really? You can relate? You who was born with a silver spoon and never had to learn the value of a dollar can relate to people panicking about not being able to pay for the house or rent? What about having to cut back on the grocery budget, having to keep the house cool in the the winter because you can't afford to keep the house properly heated, or even having to rely on your grandparents and other extended family so you don't have to go hungry at school and etcetera? I have had to deal with some of these things as have various members of my family and others I have known. But you who happily fire people and have now shut down an entire government forcing hundreds of thousands of people to suffer and struggle for your ridiculous crusade can relate? Jump off your tower with that bullshit.

    So now because of this shutdown real terrorists might find it easier to get into this country thru airports - which is the traditional way most people come into this country - they fly in. Man this may backfire big time for Donnie.

    Trump might need to be careful about about suggesting "adjustments"..many thing can be 'adjusted" bills, wages, taxes, eye glasses, gun sights, cookie recipes, the height of blinds in windows, votes, the number of items bought by consumers from certain companies that advertise on fox news, nuclear warhead trajectories..anti aircraft guns..bow ties..belts..stuff like that..

    Trump, unlike Schmucker and Pelosi, has 1) made his millions in the private sector, unlike Schmucker and Pelosi... and 2) knows HOW to run a company and knows what it means to pay workers.

    This must be part of Trump's effort to force 800k, or so, voters to definitely vote Democratic in the next election. The Republicans always manage to self destruct at some point. As you realize they were just using you toward their own selfish ends.

    Does DT been PAID for presidency? I remember, that he once said, that he won't take the payment for his services. So its totally believeable for him to feel for someone who can't pay his rent from his earnings as a govermental clerk :-)

    If this crap keeps going on like it is, we will not make it to November. Many folks are starving, losing homes, kids going hungry at school, after school care programs are being shut down..etc.

  • Gray Scribe
    Gray Scribe 9 months ago

    Of course they make adjustments. What was it? 800,000 workers? Plus their spouses and kids? Yes, they make adjustments by spending only the minimum. Let's be generous and say we end up with 1,000,000 people 'making adjustments' (likely the number is higher), that's 1 in 32 people that contribute less to the economy?
    Let's hope they are very evenly distributed throughout the USA or there might be some minor layoffs, adding a little more to the number of people that can't spend as much. Oh, look, trickle down works on the negative.

    Trump is doing such a fantastic job that he might end up with the exact opposite "problem" he's sure he has now. Rather than Mexicans trying to get into America to look for a better life, you'll have Americans fleeing to Mexico tying to find a better'll be brilliant. So in order to make his "wall" future proof, it's going to need to be built doggy-door style, so the Americans can get out, but the Mexicans can't get in!!! Go Don Don, you're the best!
