It’s free to walk around a park or your neighborhood, not so free on a golf course.


Lol it's probably free when you own the golf course. Also last I heard he chose not to be paid for being president. Regardless, it would have to be some amazing golf courses to reach up $25 billion in greens fees.

“Screw them! Fire every one!” Is not an example of a tantrum?

On second thought, maybe you’re right. Let’s fire Trump’s secret service security. He can get his concealed carry license and that will be all he needs. MUCH cheaper.

Nope. Not free. The government is charged.

Nope. Just a pure, calm statement. Exclaimed for solidifying my point.

Oh those poor poor people.

Meanwhile the guys sitting in the garbage truck with the arm, and the lady delivering my mail are making more than I am currently while I go back to school.

And those benefits?! Wooooh man do I feel sorry for those Federal Suckers.

Cool, then his sons can pay for security. Or hire some with his quarterly Presidential salary, instead of donating it as he does.

I think if the article said:

Trump kills extra staffers in the middle of 5th Avenue, citing lack of funding, the replies on here would be -- well, about time, there are too many government employees anyway. Good for Trump, Obama hired too many people.

Very predictable replies. I can guess the first two pages of any thread as soon as I see the title -- because most people don't get past that point anyway.





You don't think a government can buckle under too much bureaucracy?

And yet you are drawn here. Some say he might live rent free in your head.

Give up the golf thing for a change. Obama did it. Clinton did it. Georgey did it. It comes with the territory. The guy can't be all work all the time. I'm sure even then he's thinking about what has to be done.


The left often forgets that Trump owns 17 golf courses, so it's not like he's paying to play, as it were.

So it's an even worse analogy then they think.

(I said the left thinks... my apologies for typing that.)



The left remembers because it costs money for him and his staff and security and military support units to move every freaking weekend to his properties.

Well at least Congress Critters, and judges from District on up to I imagine Supreme Court levels, can all write themselves raises as they see fit. We'll just call it the bourgeois vanguard.

OK. Here's the deal. ANYTIME the Federal Government DOESN'T spend money, it's a good thing.
This is an UNWAVERING, UNIVERSAL constant.

Pondering the level at which "you just don't get it" continues to be a constant source of wonder and amusement for me, but in my heart of hearts I believe that true redemption is waiting for you, and it only lies a couple of threads away, brother! (or sister. I don't judge).

But be not afraid brother! (see above). I sense HOPE for you, man-friend! (ditto).

I KNOW that there's a Trump supporter somewhere deep down inside your heart, and he's just SCREAMIN' to get out!
You just keep your chin up, cuz we're all really rootin' for ya! No matter where you go, you just remember that I'm ALWAYS her for you brah! (and again) Never forget that.

Just let the love out, man-friend! Just let it FLOW!

Damn, I forgot this part. Sorry!



Were 4 pages in and, let's see, how many takers so far?

Let's just count them up, m'kay?

Kharron is all in...
TinySickTears is on the fence...
scraedtosleep also seems to be fencing...
JameSimon seems to be in...
And, of course Sillyolme. No surprise there... If there's Trump hate on the agenda, she'll ALWAYS be raising her glorious voice skyward, hehe. You may as well just post for her, SG...

Ditto for Kaylaluv. Wow! There's a surprise!

I guess this is a big day for ya! Congratulations brah! Seriously. From the bottom of my heart!


Better luck next time, Hoss!

You PM me if I can help!

So, no more secret service security, golf trips, or military spending?

Cool.

Its about time the public sector cut back


They've been having cutbacks for ten years. Once again you people are ignorant, vicious people who have no idea what you're talking about. I can't wait until the Democrats take over and we can cut the real waste.

Interesting...

Govt. workers should get an LLC and become private contractors. I just renegotiated my govt. contracts with "the wall" and gave myself a nice little raise.

www.usa.gov...

by the way, the gop will not allow trump to just unilaterally decrease federal wages. They know this would be the death of the GOP when all the federal workers and their families bounce over to the democrats.

Funny how all the people who think this is a good thing have no problem with massive military spending.
