    Default BAM, endgame in sight for Shutdown...

    5-6 Republicans came out today in favor of opening individual portions of the Government.

    You got Rubio joining the usual suspects this morning.

    Maybe this is how it ends, leaving the single issue of the wall outstanding after the government is back and running otherwise.

    same as it was before on the votes, maybe a few less...try again.
    Leadership is backing Trump -see what happens today when he goes to Capitol Hill

    Who said they wanted a monument of you?

    here is a dirty secret about politics

    if people believe you won, then you did.
    Cornelius is one of JPP's most longstanding and interesting enigmas wrapped up in a ball of mystery. No one can be quite sure as to his true identity, which has left many flabbergasted and concerned. Cornelius has appeared numerous times throughout JPP history, always in a poignant and punctual fashion. He's offered numerous contributions to a whole host of threads with his unique insight into the human condition, and has captivated both mind and spirit with each corner of the site that he visits. Almost as a function of time, the clamor for Cornelius to return grew louder and louder until it could no longer be ignored. Cornelius is now among us all.

    That is the way this should be resolved.

    Trump should claim victory...just by signing whatever comes to him from congress.

    His supporters (!) are fucking morons who will accept anything he says as gospel.

    That is the only way out of this.

    He is not going to get that wall.

    i can't say whether a wall will happen or not but I believe trump has leverage because at the end of the day, democrats operate on feels and conservatives honestly don't give a shit if the government is shut down.

    Some red senators are abandoning ship. There are now 7. They care about keeping their jobs. If Daffy costs them votes, they will be gone. then Trump will be alone.

    The longer it goes on the more non-essential employees will quit and find real jobs, and that will reduce the federal workforce, maybe help to balance the budget.

    They have real jobs now, Tinkerbell.

    You should look into that some day. Get off the welfare rolls and save us the money.
