    Furloughing. And in some cases, they still get to come to work.

    You keep saying that, but we all know that approach would take all the pressure off of the party of the jackass to fund the wall. You're a president yourself, why don't you call Trump and talk to him presidenté a presidenté?

    Yes it is. Anytime you think it is right to get out of your constant state of delusion snowflake and open your eyes, do so. Now would be good.

    You sure have problems actually posting anything meaningful. I suppose most of us realize that eminent domain seizure winds up in court. There are cases that are fighting Bush's land grab on the border, that are still in court. Trump has lied about the wall from day one to fool the ignorant and the haters. That last part is where you fit in.

    Once again you seem to be lacking anything at all to back up what you are saying. Just rambling on. Poor dumb bastard.

    Get to come to work? WTF. It costs money to work. They are not getting paid. The math is simple, those forced to work are paying to work. They are in a steep financial dive due to being forced to work.

    Since China joined WTO, U.S. has lost 60,000 factories. That is a whole lot of lost paychecks...

    OMG Trump's government shutdown is like so much worse than Obama's and Clinton's government shutdowns.

    Jimmy Carter was POTUS 4 years and had 5 government shutdowns; Reagan averaged 1 a year. Makes you wonder how W. made it all 8 years with no shutdowns--the only POTUS in recent history to have none.

    Hopefully, Trump's shutdown is just getting started.
