Government shutdowns are caused by small baby-men having a temper tantrum because they can't get their way. 


I would agree with you, except for one thing.  Who controls both houses of Congress, and the presidency?  Republicans own this. 
In other circles, it's called extortion.

lol And that would apply to EVERY PERSON INVOLVED IN VOTING!  The democrats are doing the same thing. They are stomping and screaming because they can't have their way.  Get ready for it to get a LOT worse. The democrats have already said they will block ANYTHING that Trump tries to do or that the Republicans are for.

So you are correct.  It is all about baby men and women pitching a fit when things do not go exactly their way.

Government shutdowns are pointless.  They are a control tactic.  The shutdowns hurt those who are most in need of assistance. 

The shutdown doesn't effect those with government assistance.

LOL.  The democrats are the ones holding this up.  They are the ones who will not agree to the budget.  And it is not extortion.  I doubt you would say the same thing when the democrats were in control of everything. No you thought that was a good thing. smh.

And FYI Obama shut the government down for over 2 weeks to get his obamacare insurance shoved through. Did you think that was okay?  Did you accuse him of extortion? Somehow I think you was okay with that.

LOL NO I don't feel their pain. These people make more in ONE month than most of us make in a year.  They should have enough money in the bank to live a couple weeks without a pay check.  When I have been laid off from my job and drawing roughly $100 a week or can only find a min wage job ($7.25 an hour) with 15 or so hours a week they didn't any of them feel sorry for me.  No, they have said to people in that situation you can live just fine on that.

A lot of people even government workers live from paycheck to paycheck, except for the politicians most of them do not make in a month more than you make in a year.

LOL YES THEY DO.  The people who are in congress who are causing this mess make more in one month than most common folk make in a year. You can deny it all you want but it is the truth.  These high up politicians are all freakin rich.  And they can afford to miss a pay check unless they just waste a lot of money.  And I am sure they do.  Most people spend what they make.  They make more so they spend more.

Either way I do not feel sorry for them.  The democrats have repeatedly said they will oppose ANYTHING President Trump or the Republicans want to do.  How can you be so blind as to not see they are the problem.  They do not even know or care what they are opposing.  The Republicans are for it so THEY are against it.

It is like the meme going around said---at this point if Trump came out in favor of oxygen the democrats would all suffocate themselves.

:menorah:   :santa:   :snowflake: Seems like they planned to shut down the government just to have more time of before the holidays. They was gonna get time off of work any ways. The world is still turning even though our government is still shut down.  :menorah:   :santa:   :snowflake:

Exactly.  When obame was in office the democrats were all for a boarder wall.  And he separated kids from adults. HE is also the one who put them in what they are calling cages.  It wasn't a cage. It was a temporary holding cell. Don't want to be in there then don't sneak in to a country ILLEGALLY.

Most of those that are  off right now would be anyway, and they  do get paid later  when the  government opens back up. the only  thing is  the tourist are the ones who don't  get to see the national  sights.  But I am sure there are a lot of  state parks and sights to see.  Obama  did several  shut downs. Every time he couldn't get his way.  He  gave billions to other countries. Billions to Fannie Mae and Freddie mac to keep them going when they were  giving money away like crazy to  people  wanting to buy house that had no idea how to pay for one and they lost their tails on it.  All President Trump wants is 5B.  Just another democrat ploy to  make him look bad.


EXACTLY!!!

And we need the wall.  You cannot have open boarders and just let who ever walk right in.  Nobody is saying no to immigrants just ILLEGAL immigrants.
Nobody is talking about open borders besides Trump. Send money on patrols and moving the court hearings along quickly but this "wall" is a waste.  Most illegals are visa overstays.  The illegal who shot the cop in CA recently was from Fiji not Mexico so the wall would have been no use.  If everyone who believes in the Wall donates to that Gofundme they can have their wall and not take away from other more important uses for 5 billion
