    Default Dem. Schumer & Dem. Pelosi sets new record on length of time for a gov. shutdown.

    Or actually it will be a new record at midnight tonight..

    Today is 21 days which ties the Clinton shutdown in 1995 for 21 days.

    Next in line is the Jimmy Carter shutdown of 1978 for 17 days.

    And behind that we have the Obama shutdown of 2013 for 16 days .

    And another Carter shutdown in1977 for 12 days.

    And then the Carter shutdown of 1979 for 11 days , and he even had 2 more shutdowns for 8 days each

    It would seem as if the dems don't get their way, then they want everyone to suffer..Sad, very sad, doesn't say much for their governing stance.

    ^ Nice one. As Trump continues to keep millions of Americans economic hostages, because he can't make Mexico pay for the wall (as he promised), and he can't persuade the Democrats to force Americans to pay for the wall. He's painted himself into a corner.

    I wanted some data on the effect of government shutdowns on tax revenue but the office was closed by a shutdown.

    Must have been fake doctored video when Trump said, “Yes, if we don’t get what we want, one way or the other — whether it’s through you, through a military, through anything you want to call – I will shut down the government, absolutely. . . . And I am proud — I’ll tell you what, I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck, because the people of this country don’t want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country. So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it."

    The polls show Americans blame President Trump, as he requested.

    I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck, because the people of this country donít want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country. So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. Iím not going to blame you for it. The last time you shut it down, it didnít work. I will take the mantle of shutting down.
    Guess who.

    It needs some emphasis:

    "I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck, because the people of this country don’t want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country. So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it. The last time you shut it down, it didn’t work. I will take the mantle of shutting down."
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    Ron, it is better to keep quiet and let people think you are a bit stupid, than to open your mouth and prove you are very stupid.

    that would be perversely funny if he ends it because he made a new record.

    Trump said it’s his shutdown. He said it straight up on national tv sitting between Schumer and Pelosi. You’re jaft.

    Ron sure likes to push our buttons! Makes me chuckle.
    Ron, Has any Republican ever, ever made a mistake? Judging by your original post, I feel you find them quite infallible.

    History shows whose on the right side. Anyone remember the Clinton and newt Gingrich shutdown. Gingrich wanted to cut Medicare, and Bill Clinton said no. We had a balanced budget and newt wanted old people to pay more. Well the republicans caved because they knew they were wrong. With last year's economy our national debt should have shrank. How can anyone call themselves a conservative, and go on a spending spree. I guess the debt only matters when them Democrats are in charge.
