Weird, I mean in the OP you clearly state:



All we can do is pray no one gets hurt in Trump's savage and inhumane shutdown


Guess the purpose of the thread is...muddled.


I just won't cover up THE TRUTH THAT TRUMP IS A BARBARIC SAVAGE WHO DOESNT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS.


You don't want to hear that truth get out of the thread


OP reached breaking point as well. Come on guys and gals...group hug with Buddha and OP here let's bring it in.

Dude, you have always seemed like a sensible member. In this thread, you seem to be coming unhinged. Seriously, your responses are reading like someone on the brink of losing a grip on reality.

Time to shut off the news, get off of the news sites on the Internet, and take a little self-care day.

He has become much worse than he use to be, one could have a conversation with him and weigh facts etc

Not anymore, the OP has either turned into a professional troll, or has gone full tilt TDS with no rationale in sight.

So I am an Airway Transportation System Specialist (technician for all NAS systems) for the FAA. Outside minor equipment that doesnt directly affect the separation of aircraft, the national system is running fine. If there was an issue, I can guarantee the airlines would be howling.

Where I am at, which is a top 10 airport in terms of traffic, we are still maintaining a 99% uptime for equipment.

YOU CANT PAY THEM WITHOUT THE PRESIDENTS SIGNING A BILL OPENING UP THE GOVERNMENT

HE WILL ONLY SIGN A BILL THAT HAS 5 BILLION FOR HIS WALL

THAT'S THE REASON FOR HIS BLACKMAIL

TRUMP IS HOLDING THE 800,000 WORKERS HOSTAGE.

TRUMP AND TRUMP ALONE!



Except for the fact that Congress can override a veto with 2/3rds vote...but you know...its Trump holding the Government hostage.

If Congress truly wanted to fund anything, they can do it.

you don't find it rather ironic that the union is going on about putting people in danger, because it's workers are not being paid. when the fact the workers are not receiving any pay is actually the union's fault, being they are and have not been properly safeguarding their worker's interests. instead insuring their members suffer from the political games. especially the currant democrat political games which is holding the worker's pay hostage.

this part of the situation is the union's own fault. on top of the fault of the democrats for causing and continuing the shutdown. but then again without the union's support in this these shutdowns could not hurt the unionized government workers. thus removing any urgency to fix things. government unions, the democrats thank you for your work and support of politics above the wellbeing of your workers.

There are 500 air traffic controled airports in the U.S. and 20,000 uncontrolled airports in the U.S. Airplanes land and take off everyday with no air traffic control. There are procedures to take off and land with no ATC. This is a lie to scare the public. I am a pilot and aircraft mechanic and have made hundreds of flights where i never talked to air traffic control.

There has been quite enough echo chamber belief reinforcement. Truth is subjective but facts are not. There are no "alternative facts"

Good luck being heard by moderates that swing between parties. There is no meat left to this meal so I will do as you asked and leave the thread since I do not wish to confirm your bias.

its gonna be okay everybody.... hugs. Definitely lots of hysterics around this thread.
Gov shutdown is ongoing bc politicians are acting like children. Mostly the left-hand side. Wa I didn't get to go on my trip so I am going to veto everything even if it was # I agreed with a few years ago.
