    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.

    Are you calling your president a liar? Are you saying that the democrats are trying to steal the shut down from Trump who proudly owns it.

    The democrats can end it at any time...They refuse to sit down and compromise on a fair bi-partisan budget for the good of the people.

    From Trump's own campaign website:

    "The provision of the Patriot Act, Section 326 -the "know your customer" provision, compelling financial institutions to demand identity documents before opening accounts or conducting financial transactions is a fundamental element of the outline below. That section authorized the executive branch to issue detailed regulations on the subject, found at 31 CFR 130.120-121. It's an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year."

    It ain't for the good of the nation; that's just another lie.

    What are you doing about it?

    He says that. And then says "no 5.7 billion, then shutdown continues". "Working with" someone means "compromise" - which he won't do.

    Well after a rather brisk, and friendly political discussion on the government shutdown, we all should be able to agree to the rather obvious.


    A- It was President Trump who shut down the government.

    B- Why ? For the national security of the southern border.

    C- Is President Trump willing to reopen the government ? And the answer is Absolutely.

    D - How long will the shutdown last ? Who knows ?

    E- Who is stopping the reopening of the government agencies . Looks like dem Schumer and dem Pelosi are not willing to participate in the legislature process.

    F- Why aren't the dems willing to put the welfare of the people and the nation forefront ?

    G- Will this be a blowback on the dem party in 2020 ?

    H - Will the President be able to secure the funds needed for national security without the participation of the dem party.?

    I - Will we ever have a secure nation under dem leadership ?

    You're forgetting, RonW, how your diety POSPOTUS announced that the shutdown was on him.

    A- It was President Trump who shut down the government.
    B- Why ? For the national security of the southern border.
    A is true. B is complete nonsense. There is no security crisis on the Mexican border, any more than there was for the first two years of Trump's presidency or the 20 years before that. Trump is doing this purely out of ego and ineptitude, because he's backed himself into a corner and can't figure out how to get out of it without looking like a fool. He hasn't the foggiest idea how to negotiate, doesn't realize that he isn't any good at it, and is flailing around trying to protect his bloated but fragile ego at all costs. This has almost nothing to do with real security, and everything to do with what's inside Trump's narcissistic head. It's pathetic.

    One more time, until you get it:

    He’s not forgetting, like Trump he can say two completely contradictory things and believe both. It’s that ol’ “we create our own reality” bs.

    Even this dumb Canadian, far, far away knows that Trump is the one that keeps walking out of meetings. Yes, the door is open, and he keeps walking out of it when he doesn't get his way.

    BTW - the people of America recognized their mistake and corrected it by voting in a Democratic majority this time. They are doing their job representing the views of the majority of Americans. The majority of Americans don't believe a wall is the right way to go.

    The President said that he would sign the bills that would have kept the government open.

    The bills were presented for his signature, and he refused to sign them.

    He can't make a deal, because nobody is stupid enough to believe anything he says anymore.

    Well . . . I suppose there are the Moron Horde, who seem to have the collective intelligence of a maggot, but, you know, normal people.

    Keith Wilson says -
    There is no security crisis on the Mexican border
    Are your statements completely and wholly based on this belief alone ?


    Does partisan politics enter into your beliefs ?
