You know without that cash injection each week into the economy in the form of welfare the economy would fail almost immediately, think about it. People are still marching your just not looking at the bigger picture.

Congress can pass a separate bill just to cover military pay. They did last time.

It is up to Congress.


Somewhere between 5 days and 30 days from now, we'll be right back where we were on Friday...nearing another deadline. Our government is giving all voters the finger. Right now, the primary sh!thole is the Congress of the United States.

When all else fails, toss some virtue signaling into the mix. RheeeeeEEE


I don't find it failing at all.

You guys are the ones throwing out the hatred of these people, and the hatred is the basis for the shutdown.

You DO know that these Republicans ARE promising to do DACA before March, right? So, theoretically, your party is against you right now, you people who don't want to accept dreamers at all, right?

Hilarious. You already know your party is lying! You already know that if you skate now, your boys will lie again in the future, that's why you don't care that they're promising a DACA bill prior to March.

I don't think you understand. We are not failing. We want it very very clear who believes what. The people on this thread are making it really clear what they believe. The guy I'm replying to expect people to report their parents and line themselves up for deportation.

I guess to him that doesn't sound absurd because he's so awash with hatred, he actually believes that's what a [brown] person should do.

The dispute has clarified exactly what Republicans value and believe right now. I have already copied his response to me and am sharing it with some friends who are both falling down laughing AND terrified that such hate sits out proudly as "Conservative America, Alt-Right Except For Bannon, 2018 - Ever Comrade Trump"

It's perfect.

exactly, they are only voting to borrow more money on top of the 20 trillion we already borrowed and owe, every American should be screaming, NO don`t borrow more shut the government down until we no longer have a deficiet! if you`ve ever complained about the deficiet but now you are complaining about the government being shut down then you`re a hypocrite, you ARE the problem so don`t ever complain about the national debt because you helped create it.

Surprising....../s

Fairly sure I'm not seeing any indication of hatred nor hatred being the basis for the shutdown. What I do see is a bunch of children vying for political points however.

Hopefully codify it into law. I know all you have is the 'my party' argument but I'm not a member of the publican party, sorry man.




I don't think you understand. We are not failing. We want it very very clear who believes what. The people on this thread are making it really clear what they believe. The guy I'm replying to expect people to report their parents and line themselves up for deportation.


No I don't think you understand. You don't get to make exceptions to laws already on the books by presidential decree. You change the law which is exactly where the publicans are taking a stance, using the term loosely as it is the stance of the POTUS.

See the biggest mistake is assuming that your 'side' is always right. Whether it's by values or feels.

it doesn`t matter, 20 trillion we know about and 20 trillion we don`t know about but we seem to be screaming , raise the debt , raise the debt, and next week we will be screaming the debt is too high.
the 20 trillion we know about s too much so we need to shut up and let the government shut down for a long time. let the government shutdown, they will cave before we do,we already have 20 trillion to pay off they can`t live without more debt,but we can

Wrong the government are set up for a shutdown, they will weather it just fine and have made contingency plans, how many of the unwashed masses have thought ahead do you think?

Until people stop infighting, join together and slap the ruling class with a large dose of civil disobedience nothing will change.

we`ll all do just fine because the politicians care more about what we think than what they think, in other words politicians just want to get re-elected and they won`t get re-elected if they don`t make us voters think that they did something awesome.

You know nothing.


And there's that tolerance the left is known for.




We actually want it because it is the right thing to do on principle and we don't reflexively hate brown people.


And there is the claim that following the laws of our country is racist. lol. And you wonder how Trump won the Presidency.




That's the difference between us.


That ain't the only difference. You actually believe what you are saying.




Oh, and just so you know, under George W Bush - who most decidedly did NOT hate Hispanics, Hispanics were very much split between Repub and Dem, in Florida they were MORE republican.


You mean the same George W Bush that got us into the middle east mess? According to your logic he must have hated Muslim's because he invade Iraq. I don't think you should use him to try to prove whatever point you think you might have.




THEN the Republican party started hating these people openly, THEN Hispanics moved more left.


Nope. They just wanted to fix the problem, not ignore it. Obama had 8 years to do it, so if you really want to blame somebody, there ya go.




It's not for the votes, it's for doing something right that we feel is important. It's much easier to do when you don't have an inner fiber that hates other sets of people who are a different color than you.


Again, I am not sure why you are so focused on color when it has nothing to do with it. It is about the law and trying to fix the law so that it will no longer be a problem.

Nice try at a Moral High Ground political maneuver, but screaming racist at everything solves nothing, it just means you only care about what you perceive to be the issue, when in actuality You know nothing.

I think people should prepare.

This is going to be the longest shutdown in history.

The thing is, Trump doesn't like to lose, so he's going to stick to his guns.

And the Democrats don't want Trump to win, so they are going to stick to their guns.

In the end, Trump may have to start a war, to get things going again. Since, under the war powers act, the president gets tremendous powers to do almost whatever he wants. And since that's the only way Trump can win, it will most likely be the path the course of events take.

Longest shutdown, to end in declaration of war against some nation out there.

Then, Trump wins.

I hope you are wrong, but there are plenty of nations that hate the U.S. so you may not be.

The one where he said they would work on it yesterday and yet nothing has happened? You do know he is the only one in the senate that can bring forward legislation to a vote?

Its happened before however you can tell your son to apply for an advance on his pay. Have him contact USAA, Navy Federal and Marine Federal Credit Unions. They will give him a 3 month advance on base pay. I used this when I was in the military after a shutdown and payment is deducted over 12 months.

The other cool thing is any money you pay back can be re borrowed any time. So say you paid back 3000.00 you can again borrow that 3000.00 again if needed.

1 million people who did not make a choice of coming here and did not make an effort to report that they are here illegally. They are dishonest people who are here illegally are these the kind of people you want living next to you?
at some point they realized that they were here Illegally and yet they did nothing to correct that situation,they continued to lie and deceive to reap the benefits of honest law abiding tax paying americans.

seriously, are those the kind of immigrants that you want in America? immigrants that are here illegally and lie and deceive? we have enough legal citizens that lie, deceive and scam.

anyone that willingly stays here knowing that that are here illegally and then lies and deceives o stay here are not the kind of people we need here we have enough homegrown douchbags that lie, deceive and break the laws.

poor little daca`s got brought here illegally and at some point they knew they were here illegally but they never picked up a phone and reported their parents for being illegal criminals, no they just kept on with the lies and deceit,there`s nothing innocent about daca`s they are criminal scumbags just like their parents are.



That was the DEM's plan all along. For the votes. Not for the betterment of the country, the votes. Think about that.


Actually, the DID report themselves. K? That's what the hell makes them Dreamers. When the program began, they came out, reported themselves, they passed a background check on a promise.

YES, these ARE the type of people I want living next to me, just like any other damn group of people, there are good and bad.

They came at 2 years old, no fault of theirs, and since they knew NO OTHER PLACE ON EARTH, they chose not to get themselves deported by going to Immigration prior to DACA, then they DID come.

I am just positive that you being the law abiding citizen you are, would've been at Immigration at 18 reporting yourself ready for deportation.

You expect people to pick up the phone and report their parents?

You are clearly a hate-filled person who has zero empathy at all and that is how you can take such positions, you hate these brown dirty people who were here because big business begged them to come here so your hotel room cost $20 less.

You hate them, you hate them all. That is quite typical of a Trump supporter. Not all of them, but it is quite typical.

As of 10 days ago, Trump wholly disagreed with you. He said these people were Americans. But, being Trump, he knew that position would upset people like you and changed his mind.

It's fine. Truly.

There will always be hate-filled, white proud people like you, feeling superior in eveyr way, sure that you would definitely report your parents and line up to go to a country you've never known.

You're lying to yourself. You are full of hate. You are opposed to how Trump actually felt about it. You will not change your position. You voted for Trump because he told you that our hate was right and just, that brown people were douchebags, and you are absolutely thrilled that you get to call people like that out in the open.

It's the only reaosn you supported Trump. And yet boy do you folks get mad when someone points out how racist you are.

Buh bye, I don't speak to people like you. I have PLENTY OF GOOD REPUBLICAN friends with whom I can discuss many issues, they are fantastic people who care deeply about others.

Take care.


I think you meant to reply to someone else, because everything you said is nothing I talked about. I think you may need to take some meds though, because the TDS is strong with you.
