Update: Silly Temp Government Shut Down Solved But Maybe Some Kansas City Federal Employees Could Still Skip Work???



Update on overnight events  . . .

The dumbest shutdown ever: The sole purpose of the all-nighter is to ensure federal employees can show up for work Friday without interruption.

You decide . . .

It's a Republican shut down. They own this whole thing. Talk to your boy, Rand.

^^^ Rand is standing on principal against spending. The Democrats are still fighting for DACA and against military funding. NOT a smart move.

Oh yeah, principled Rand Paul and his Greedy Old Perverts.

Rand and his boys voted for $1.5 trillion of new debt just 6 weeks ago as a Christmas gift to their donors and multinational corporations.

They cemented their borrow and spend credentials long ago. These buffoons need to STFU with the pious hypocritical lecturing about debt.

If there were any principles left in the GOP, the entire party would be primaried.

CRASH

Trump is setting records. Biggest single day DOW losses in history. He now has the two with quadruple digit losses.

I'm sure Cleaver will vote to shut down the government to hurt our military and put national security at risk.

As far as the Right Wingnuts claim that the Democratic Party is fighting against Military Spending, refer to the (military run) website Military.com.

The GOP "military spending" proposals are directed almost entirely toward the purchase of Naval Surface Vessels (obsolete concepts in modern warfare) and the development of new Manned Fighter Aircraft (26 new versions adopted that never saw combat since the end of the VN War).

Meanwhile, thanks to Army Appropriation reductions in those proposals, if they are adopted, then by the end of the 2018-19 Fiscal Year the Army will have to return to the pre-Obama practice of issuing ONE pair of Combat Boots to Basic Trainees and requiring them to BUY a second pair from their first pay.

In other words, whizzing almost the entire Military Budget away on useless Ships and Planes while screwing over the troops!

All this while Bush's "Forever War" continues into its sixteenth year.

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS, BRING THEIR BUTTS HOME!

Do what Nixon did in Vietnam, declare "Victory" and bring the poor kids home.
Then, if you want a cheesy-assed Parade, there would be a reason to have one.

Why do you hate Trump? Are you saying his Afghan surge is wrong?

What a shock, revenues are down! Who could have predicted that? You mean to tell me the tax cut hasn't spurned a lot of job growth to offset the tax cut? I'll be damn. Hell, I figured that $1.50 a week extra that lady Paul Ryan was bragging about would have offset it alone considering all the extra money she put into the economy. I figured she bought at least a new Corvette with that. I'm bringing home a whopping 13 bucks a week more now and I like the Lamborghini I bought with that last week so much I might get another one, this one white. I mean, I can't find enough banks to handle that 52 bucks more a month I have coming in. Funny, I don't hear anything out of the Tea Party anymore about fiscal responsibility. I wonder if that's because the half black guy is out of office?

Updated this post after the quick reopen.

They're calling it "The Dumbest Shutdown" ever . . . No matter your political philosophy. It's hard to disagree.

Hey chumps, Trump is destroying your 401(k)'s while he lines his pockets. Jobs are leaving this country in record numbers and we are still in Afghanistan! Wake up chumps...you got taken! I don't want to hear shit about Clinton either because that was 20 years ago and that's deflection. Look at what's happening right now!

Demoncrats seem to speak more Spanish with each passing day. No wonder I cannot understand them anymore.

^^Well that's because you only speak repubtard. Repubtards are incapable of holding two competing thoughts in their slowly decaying heads. They have been trained to only hear the words of their overlord masters on Fox News

No matter what network you watch the Democrats are willing to shut our government down over illegal aliens. So much for being an American.

9:26, not "illegal aliens", but children.

Do you have children?

I hope not.

Ha! Federal employees don't work on Fridays.

The first problem is this perception that the government shutting down is a bad thing. Lets see if we can go for six months, give tax payers a vacation and watch moocher unemployment go way down.
