    Default Federal employee paycheck vs the rest

    How many lives have been turned upside down because of large and small businesses and factories shutting down over the last decade? Did they get the same msm coverage as the disproportionate number of federal employees who are currently effected by the shut down?

    It seems inappropriate to focus on financial hardships of federal employees who have been effected by the shutdown without also discussing the disproportionately higher number of financial hardships endured by those who have been victims of factories and businesses closing down or moving to other countries.

    Damn you are crazy. What happens during a business cycle is not in the hands of one person who caused it. Trump is responsible for this. It did not have to happen, It is not just federal employees you jerk. It is contractors, many thousands of them who are not Feds. It is also suppliers who sell goods and services to those who are out of work.
    Yes, the Repubs have no problems helping companies to leave America. Daffy and Ivanka both have their overpriced crap made in China and 3rd world countries. That should give, even you, a clue about how little he cares about American workers.

    Usually, 800,000 getting laid off at one time draws attention, especially if that entity has the capability to pay those individuals but doesn't because of one person's inability to recognize a political blunder

    Do you even know how many lives have been turned upside down because of large and small businesses and factories shutting down or moving overseas over the last decade?

    And, how exactly is "large and small businesses and factories shutting down or moving overseas" relevant to Trump laying off 800,000 people because he can't get his way?

    My guess is that Evmetros hash mark through the NFL logo means that he also bought into Trump's NFL anti-kneeling bullshit These "rah-rah" folks have no idea the reality behind the issues. They just yell and whine because Trump yells and whines.

    I used to try and educate them on another forum, but grew tired of banging my head off of the wall and gave up.

    I have worked for two different employers in my time who have closed up. I lost two weeks of pay from one of them, and my vacation time balance from the other. Nobody gave a shit about how it effected my life, and nobody gave a shit about all the other vacant business buildings that I saw all over town. I found new work and did what I needed to to survive, but I have to say I am absolutely disgusted to see how all of the sudden it's some kind of big deal that some federal employees and contractors are going through what I went through. I have no doubt that all this concern about the disproportionately smaller number of people who are effected by the shutdown is nothing but politics. Lefties do not really give a shit about these folks.

    Democrats could give them back their paychecks by funding the wall. Why aren't you mad at them?

    Nothing is relevant to Trump getting his way except Pelosi getting her way. A stand-off is a situation in which neither of two opposing groups or forces will make a move until the other one does something, so nothing can happen until one of them gives way. Trump and Pelosi are in a standoff.

    How many people are stupid enough to publicly compare apples to oranges?

    Dems were for the wall before Trump got elected campaigning for it.

    Yea, the standoff is just a political arm wrestling match. If Trump was against the wall, lefties would be fighting for it. It is pretty funny how lefties like to pimp the notion that Trump is the only one who can give in on this.
