Andrew Stephenson then tell the dems to approve wall funding, Trump has already offered some compromise, if it is so useless then let him build it and that will be shown to be the case and they can use it against him in the next election. Oh wait they know it is useful so they are against it.

Andrew Stephenson they will get paid later, and let me know when anyone notices.

You know, MAGA, if you slowed down you might be able to get your thoughts across in one post.

No, picking up garbage in national parks isn’t truly “essential”, nor are cooks in the White House, but the IRS probably is, as is the TSA, etc.

People like Andrew try to make all services seem essential , they aren’t, and ignoring the FACT that many people want less bloat and less intrusion and are fine with actual essential services. All the while the left attacks an actual essential service of having a secure border like pathetic hypocrites.

Andrew Stephenson and many non essential are not operating and no one really cares or notices, people see that the government is bloated and the dems are hating it, despite the phony Twitter claims like the person who was going to lose their house while they were stil being paid. Sorry but government is bloated and inefficient no matter how much you bow and scrape to the state.

The “lack of chaos” is because essential services are still operating. They’re just not being paid, which is not really a long term solution to anything.

That’s what terrifies the democrats so much. Then Americans can really see just how bloody useless and inefficient the government is.
Right on Joh Stossel
I sure wish we had a way to do the same in Canada.

Have you heard of a General Strike, Liza?
Even though 100 years has made a huge difference in moral constructs, basic principles and needs and even the need for unions today – the Winnipeg General strike has many lessons for us! The least of which is the present day divide between the lefty progressive urban liberals and the right…too polar to have any kind of unity. The divide and conquerors have been very successful!
