They really need to stop getting us all excited about them shutting down the SWAMP, then never really shut it down, I want a full shut down, no money in no money out, no workers need show up in the hopes they quit in disgust and go find real jobs that are not as damaging to our country, less damaging employment.

Trump needs to stop being Schumer's little bitch and shut that fucking thing down, all the fucking way. No checks outbound, no needs for the leeches to show up at work to continue fleecing us. Just get out and find a job.

I HATE THE SWAMP

    It’s not really a shutdown if it starts on a weekend, onlybthe military is working over the weekend. By the time Monday rolls around another back door deal will have been struck and it will be like nothing ever happened. I agree tho, pull the plug except for a few.

    Hey, shutting down the government is like stopping a bear from attacking a baby... or at least keeping a dog from chewing on your wallet!

    Shut that bi**h down!

    Cheers,

    Sirhr

    PS. Obama weaponized the last 'shutdown' to maximum inconvenience the American People... and create all kinds of lefty TV images. The new admin can shut down the EPA... USDA... Dept of Ed... and dozens of other useless crapholes.... while not shutting down parks, monuments and things the American People will enjoy. If you work at Dept of Ed or EPA and live paycheck to paycheck???? FUCK YOU... hope the government stays shut long enough that you lose your car and your house and you end up in a refrigerator Box. Shutdown? This is a holiday from intrusion IMHO!

    I was hoping to see my suppressor approval before this all went down but it’s not to be.

    Maybe I lucked out and it made it into the mail before close of business on Friday....but I doubt it.

    time to start a draft and pay the draftees what they are worth. Need to share the pain, its only fair. Trump should cease all welfare and entitlement payments. hell I see these congress critters bemoaning the fed workers, I say fuk that, dont pay them shit. if I get laid off I don't get paid. who are these congress people representing DC or their districts? Trump is punking out, he wants to grant amnesty to look like a good guy, he is going to sink our country, make it look like Cali on a national basis.

    What, no love for your gov?

    I see the same things happening now, that happened just before, we started using red coats as targets. Then later in our history when the blue an gray started playing tag. The similarity's of both are almost a perfect match.

    Anyone got the dope on what this DACA or CHIP bullshit is about?

    The Dems want DACA, which is an avenue to legitimacy for illegals brought here as children, stapled on to any measure to fund .gov. Trump killed DACA in its then present form in 2017, with a March, 2018 end date, and told Congress to get it fixed by then, or lose it for good. That's two months away, but the Dems are trying to strongarm Trump right now into giving in to their immigration demands in return for a resumption of spending authority. That's a gun to the head of every serving member of our armed forces, not to mention their dependents, and our Border Patrol and their families. The Democrats are desperate to create more loyal immigrant voters, even if in practice they don't really give a shit about them.

    Chuckles Schumer met with Trump and dangled $1.8B towards The Wall in front of him as an inducement to cave in on illegal immigrants. Trump needs about $20B to complete a southern fence, but Schumer waltzed out the meeting claiming that he had offered Trump everything that he wanted, which was BS.

    CHIPS is a generally funded health insurance programs for kids in low income families which Trump intends to continue in any case.

    wrong answer, Veer.

    the dems had to get the focus off the booming economy. they also want to damage it. a booming economy pretty much ensures the ruling party stays as such.

    this is the REAL answer.

    QnD, in a rather eponymous fashion, wanted a bare-bones, on the surface summary of the most outstanding facts, which I was more than willing to provide him, even at o'dark fucking thirty, because he commands enough respect. If he wanted a knee-jerk, reactionary, reds-in-the-woodpile answer, he might have said that, or even PMed one of our flame-breathing counter-revolutionaries to get a personally skewed précis of current events.

    We all know that the Left wants the ball and is willing to do just about anything to dislodge Trump and Conservative sway over government. Treating others who are standing on the same side of the 50-yard line as you like shit because they don't have the same feverish, eyeballs-rolling-around-in-their-head look about them, with twitching facial muscles to boot, is wrong. We need reasonable solidarity, and as I said elsewhere, I'm not gonna get shoved down the path with a bayonet at my back.

    There's still plenty of time to deal with the Schumers and the Pelosis through lawful means without having to derail processes. As was noted by another poster, some of just seem to want a fight and are more than willing to throw us into it.

    Obama spent money to close gov websites like usgs and barricading unmanned monuments. It was a fucking joke and his media pets went along.

    I have to show up for work every day and I don’t get paid until the government reopens. Thanks chuck for putting illegal aliens over American citizens. The problem with granting the “Dreamers” a path to citizenship is that they can then petition for their family members to become citizens. At what point is it ok to take care of our own citizens first?

    You guys are missing the big picture. The Dems Know their position is untenable. So why die over DACA? I have a few theories.

    1) They are hoping for an uprising of illegals and Dembots against Trump.

    2) They know things like the Memo and IG report are soon to drop and they are toast. So they have nothing to lose by burning the house down before they leave.

    3) The shutdown happened on Trumps one year anniversary so they put a finger in his eye because the Dems thought they could Trigger Trump into doing something stupid.

    4) They are hoping the shutdown will slow down the the investigations and buy them time to find a way to survive. Like all the Trump Money laundering and Porn star stories.

    Nothing in DC is ever the way it appears.

    5) They want to trade funding the gov for legalizing invaders rather than any more border enforcement, they know the republicans would love to figure out how to do the same and the media will do their best to sell this as trump’s fault.

    Bingo; this is kabuki theatre, nobody in the DC swamp gives a fuk about any report, they hold the ctizens in contempt utter contempt. The will flood this country to water down any opposition in hopes of hanging on.

    No, it’s Carl Marx fault for blazing a trail for you otherwise directionless faggots to follow. You should spend a little time figuring out how you’re going to handle the Muslim invasion of your shithole country and not worry with what we’re doing.

    you act like we are upset the government shut down, we are really upset that they didn't shut down completely, don't really know who we should thank yet but the longer and more widespread the shut down the more America will get a taste of freedom,and not want to start it back up again. No pay for any federal workers that is a shut down, this is a paid vacation for them.

    So, when the democrats (Obama) shut it down because the Republicans wouldn't cooperate it's Obamas fault, and when Trump shuts it down because the democrats wont cooperate it's Obamas fault.

    People who supply the table, are different than the tit suckers, no matter what shit hole they live in. Some fuck sticks think just because they were born they have the right to invade my wallet via legalize theft (aka taxes, to you fucks who have never done anything for this country except take) I think we should cut off all aid an see how the tit suckers fair, an that includes here at home. I have no issue helping those who came here legally but the cocksuckers that are here illegally fuck them an all the shit for brains who support them. Those are the true domestic enemy many here took an oath to smoke.

    See, down deep I just think that you're terrified of fading away, and begging for provocation to go and start shooting the fuck outta shit. Frankly, you worry me a little. We may have to go at it yet, but it's the last damned thing that a rational man would want to see.

    You mean shooting back dont ya. The leftists and deep state have already been shooting us.

    Dallas Cops
    Repubs on ballfield
    Mass assaults on rally goers at Trump events while cops stood by
    Church shootings here in Texas
    The Bundy protest execution by the deep state (FBI)
    Probable Vegas shooting connections to leftists and the deep state

    Many many others

    I guess actual murders and assaults motivated by ideology don't really worry you though huh, better watch GF14e2.

    The church shooter in Texas was motivated by personal rage against estranged family members.

    The Bundy issue is, as of yet, not clearly linked to organized Deep State activities. Nor is Vegas, nor the ballfield shootings, nor the Dallas cop shootings. No clearly defined conspiracies, just a bunch of Lone Wolf kookibiscuits only sharing an ideological propensity towards political philosophies in conflict with our own.

    You're starting to sound like a LaRouche zombie. Better up your meds.

    Deep state involvement or not, he is right: the shooting war has already started. It's just that we're holding fire back. For now.....

    If you start shooting back before all Constitutional remedies have been exhausted? You not only lose, you become part of the problem. JMHO

    You want a Constitutional solution Petition the SCOTUS for a separation of the People from the current Govt. Sort of a Re-Declaration of Independence. How? A petition to put on the ballot a referendum to instantly Term Limiting everyone in Congress. No sitting Pol can run for their seat. The President stays in power to maintain order.

    But it would be Chaos, because no one would know how it works would be the argument. That’s BS Elected officials only make the decisions. The civil servants do all the work, they know how It works. If the SCOTUS refused to hear it? Then and only then would the shooting be justified. Once again JMHO

    Nope the elected are the Boss whether they like it or not. Peaceful Revolution is the reason we have the Vote. 2A is only the back up for a corrupted vote.

    The Deep State is powerless with out the Pres. On their side. The President is the power period.

    One thing that gripes me is that they call it a shutdown, yet all those government employees who don't report to work until this gets straightened out, will get paid retroactively for the days when they didn't have to show up at work. it would really be nice if all those in congress got their pay docked at 3x their daily "rate" whenever the government is shut down. That way, they would actually loose money out of their pockets.

    Do you all think that the federal employees want to have the uncertainty of not knowing when their next paycheck will come? It’s not their fault the government is shit down. They still have families to feed and mortgages to pay. Some of them like myself still have to show up everyday knowing that paycheck that’s supposed to be there to pay my bills won’t be there.

    They should get a job that creates value and earn a paycheck in the Capitalist economy then, in the meantime they are taking money from me so they can go fuk themselves.

    Call the Democrat's bluff. I say offer them everything they want in DACA with 1 exception - they will NEVER be able to vote. This would (hypothetically) give their offspring a generation to assimilate and the DACA turds would not be able to sway elections. Expose their narrative of "caring and compassion for the immigrants" as bullshit.
