I think most Americans are just getting used to the government shutting down a couple times a year.

they passed a bill that is signed by the president that after the shutdown all government employees will be paid retroactively. doesn't mean that the shutdown will end though trump is going to activate martial law at this point because temper baby isn't getting his way.

And that's what I'm afraid of. The dems refusing to fund the wall just to deny him a win is gonna make him go full dictator on our asses

It hasn't had a big impact yet, but this is the first week where lots of federal employees(including air traffic controllers, TSA agents, DHS employees, etc.) will be receiving $0 paychecks. It's all downhill from here, is what I'm saying. SNAP money runs out next month.

going to have to let one bill go past due as a result. the internet/phone bill. not a pleasant experience but better that than to lose everything.

won't recover the total loss but just enough to cover 60-70%

Y'know those guns regressives are always trying to get rid of?

This is why we have them.

What would your namesake, John Galt have to say about the government's use of eminent domain to seize control of privately owned land for the purpose of constructing said wall? Is your fandom of randian objectivism so shallow?

This. I really haven't even noticed and don't know anyone who has.

The only mention of it I've seen or heard has been on CE and every time somebody leaves a TV on somewhere.

I work for the county, so I'm not affected. A couple of my coworkers' spouses haven't gone to work in three weeks though. They are absolutely feeling the burn.

I didn't even know until I brought it up in conversation. Actually, now that I think about it, I regularly request items from the Library of Congress and those requests can't be filled because there's no one working there to fill them. There's been a huge drop in TSA agents showing up to work right as college kids are flying back to campus for spring semester. Think about it a bit, and you'll realize there are all kinds of quiet consequences this has that will get worse and worse as time passes.

gun nuts are already spineless enough, they're not going to admit they're wrong and stand up to someone they thought was going to save them any more than they ever do anything but ineffectually rumble about watering trees every time they're upset

Trump supporters have proven in one presidential term that they are completely unworthy of life. I pray God sends them all to hell when they die. Trump supporters are the scum of history and future generations will revile them the same way we currently do with Nazis.

Agreed, but what Trump is doing would make Robert E. Lee proud. So therefore it is the best for our country. Gotta get used to Murrica which is the best.

My issue with that post is that he uses "god" and "hell," both of which I find silly as concepts.

I mean, if people go without the services they need long enough and get angry enough, then yes. That is an entirely possible event.
