how long would you be willing

to go without pay in exchange for $5 billion for a border fence? A month? Two months? A year?

1. I'm not going without pay...only DEMOCRATS are going without pay

800,000 Democrats facing the prospect of losing their homes...I can wait years for that.

without pay are D's?

18. Can't have it both ways

One one hand, righties claim that Democrats are all basement dwellers who don't have jobs.


Now, the claim is that all 800,000 workers not being paid are.....Democrats?


So which is it?

2. It would be funny if it weren't so sad

Trumpie is swinging in the wind. The public perception is that his stubbornness is damaging the country. His alternatives are to declare a National Emergency which will cost him the Indepent vote or to cave which will cost him his base. Great theatre.

and telling them to stop playing stupid political games. I would remind them that the Democratic Party was for the wall before it was against it.

20. No.

thread NOT ended.

The only thing the opposition is having a problem with (and some of them are Republicans) is FUNDING for the wall that tRump promised Mexico would pay for.

If tRump wants his wall he'll have to come up with some other way to fund it that doesn't come from the US.

12. If leftist teachers would teach

money management, these idiots wouldn't be in the situation they are in.

Is it my fault they can't keep at least a six month reserve to be used for just such times?

Living two weeks at a time was something I did when I was washing dishes at the local bakery when I was 16 years old, trying to put gas in my car and pay the insurance.

I learned from that.

Everyone should learn from that and take action to make sure it never happens again.

There are also MILLIONS of jobs out there, thanks to President Trump's policies.

24. There are also MILLIONS of jobs out there, thanks to deficit spending by US citizens.

Your post seems to contradict itself. So I fixed the last line to at least reflect the current reality.

Imagine all the money you call for being held up in savings, not being used on the economy... Where are we then?

My family was way ahead of Dave Ramsey on the teaching me ideas of having a large savings as a hedge against realities, but very few of the people around me seem to share that idea.

32. Government shutdowns have happened in the past and ...

history often repeats itself.

You don’t have to be a genius if you are a nonessential government worker and decide you need a shut down savings fund.

I worked for a large company who loved to lay people off just before the Christmas holidays and also during the Ides of March. You can bet I had stashed money away just in case I was one of the ones that got the pink slip.

I do feel sorry for the government workers who are losing pay as it is obviously not their fault. Here is who I do blame.

This is ridiculous that she's holding Americans' wages hostage over politics.

19. 3 month if it would stop the parasites on every streetcorner who are illegal shitting everywhere,

raping, and stabbing our kids

How about you?

You like watching pedro shit on the street corner or his MS13 son stabbing someone?

Apparently the answer is yes
