Democrats could come up losers in government shutdown fight Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi canceled their meeting with President Trump after his negative tweet, bringing government shutdown closer. Protecting the 'Dreamers' is a popular in the polls, but that will change if the price is no deal on a budget or border security. It's no guarantee the voters won't blame the Democrats if the government shuts down.

Being a little liberal and slowly changing society to a better society is good. But the Liberals are going crazy, they are trying to change things without looking at historical problems associated with the change. If everyone gets a fifteen dollar minimum wage, all it does is raise prices. A person who works hard and abuses his body in his job should get better pay than someone who sits behind a desk and spends half their shift socializing with others. I am thinking that college and education are to blame for this, it shifts the good pay and bennies to jobs where people do not actually work much. The money is going to those who are not destroying their body to provide a product or service.
Our whole society is going amuck, I believe that the pay scale is tipped the wrong way. I would rather see socialized medicine and free college for those who want it, but the person going to college should not make more than a construction worker or farmer does, people who put in long hours and tax their body or health should get paid more.
The messed up far left liberals today are just trying to push their way on others, many are educated and think they are worth more than the people working digging ditches or picking veggies by hand. The Farmers are living year to year, if it was not for insurance, most would be bankrupt already. That insurance isn't cheap, most small farmers need to have a job to make it from year to year. Then they work their fields after work and on weekends.
So you think you get to decide how much money certain people make?
Because that person went to college? And shouldn't make as much as someone who didn't?
Hmm. There's a term for this school of thinking.

That doesn't matter, especially when Hillary has millions of questionable votes and reports in multiple states of voting machines switching votes.
Is that what you HEARD or what really happened?
What you FEEL doesn't make it REAL.
