This could be interesting. I wonder if they could picket The WH
Oh don't let him fool you, he is a very intelligent man. That's what scares me. I think he's just biding his time, setting himself up. Think about it, the man practically hypnotized people into believing he was going to build a wall and Mexico was going to pay for it, he manipulated the media into practically financing his campaign. He came when the nation was ripe for the picking. After 8 years of Obama, our Border being overrun, and the threat of Hilary running the country, all he had to do is tell people what they wanted to hear. Now all he needs to do is keep coming up with shiny things to keep us occupied while he does what he needs to do. I don't think he's the "Anti-Christ" (I always thought the Anti-Christ would have more class) but he is Evil and cares about no one but himself. Who would have thought The US would have A President that does personal business with Russia and Saudia Arabia and no one questions it. Who knows, maybe the Clintons are in bed with him but I think Trump is way out of their league. I doubt he runs in 2020 if he stays that long.
Thanks Barb! Perfectly stated R. For someone who claims to be worried about Border Control, he's destroying morale. Working without pay has to be very frightening. Also for people continuing to work; they must be wondering if the other shoe will soon drop. I don't know how we would survive without pay. Thinking about people that have bills automatically deducted from their accounts' people must be scrambling.
It's only a few department, Ricky, but it's enough to put 800K people out of work - or I should say, 800K out of money, since almost half of them are working without pay... that's a lot of people for such a small portion of the government, don't you think?
Now, I'm reading that hundreds of TSA personnel are calling out sick so they can go to jobs that pay so they can actually earn money to pay their mortgages, utility bills and buy food, etc after Trump says they're "happy" to be without their money and that landlords and mortgage companies will gladly give them slack...
I've been trying to figure out what world he's living in and it has to be his own little world that doesn't include those young people with small children that have to pay daycare in order to work, etc...Does he not realize that daycare establishments won't care for the children without getting paid? Does he not realize that they can't get back and forth to work without money to buy gas for their cars? Does he not realize that mortgage and utility companies don't give a rat's behind what the circumstances are; they want their money on time? The answer to these questions is "no", he doesn't realize it because he's so out of touch he has no idea how normal people live. I'm not sure anyone in Congress does. They don't realize that these young people haven't had a chance to get thousands of dollars saved up for a rainy day and if they do have money saved, they need it for things like car repairs, medical bills, etc not for his foolish shutdown...
Thank you Barb for the clarification. I've read that the longer this continues the more people will be out of work or out of pay. This budget that he refused to consider without the wall was only the 5th of 12 budgets need for the fiscal year. In addition to the civilians being affected are many contractors unable to work during the shutdown. People keep saying they will be paid however there are many who won't recoup their losses from this shut down.
