Becawwwwwssssssss, Mark, just when you think it cannot possibly get any lower than it already has, a new nadir is found.

I just worry that the Democrats figure out what is needed for the good of the country, because what is happening now is unprecedented in American history.

There is a common metaphor in our house. "Pulling someone's Hot Wheels strip."

Do you remember the toy "Hot Wheels?" Little toy cars with some kind of internal spring-like mechanism, that would whine loudly as they raced on their orange plasticx tracking (or merely across the kitchen floor toward the toes of unsuspecting parents and siblings. They were actuated by pulling this strip through the gears, somewhat akin to the rope used to start small engines like lawn mowers.

Well, each time someone posts about His Orange Majesty, particualrly something unflattering or outrageous (and isn't it all?), the rest of you respond as though your personal Hot Wheels strips, were pulled anew.

I read of a single mother who has no idea what she will do. It is just heartbreaking.

But the president decided not to award the civil servants a pay increase because the "budget" would not allow for it. But five billion for a ludicrous wall makes perfect sense.

Waiting to see what Pelosi, Schumer and Cummings have planned. Plus the new NY attorney general and the Southern District of NY. The Trump family is going to be hit broadside from all directions. January promises to be a very interesting month.

Now what is this latest about a nude selfie that Mueller now has?

The twists and turns get twistier as we go along.

Yeah, it really was a ridiculous gesture on the part of the gov't.

When the teachers were on strike in the VI, we still had to pay rent and bills. No one expected creditors to say oh, okay, no big deal. So yeah, I couldn't imagine anyone would accept these letters and give people a break. SO ridiculous!!!

Like i said - i was a fed from 1976 to 2010. many shutdowns. most creditors dont care no matter what you have to show them or from whom. they know the govt is shut down. some dont care. some do. most will give u some time because they know but not for long.
and i can tell you: furloughed workers are democrats/republicans/black/white/jew/chri
stian/athiest/muslim. just cause cheeto doesnt know that doesnt make it true. the only ...um bright side (which isnt) is it is ""only"" a couple hundred thousand not the almost 3 million that are employed (not including contractors who cant work and 99% wont get back pay like govvies do).

What we heard on several news channels was the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) sent out tweets to federal employees including "sample letters" that they could use to ask any creditors to give them a break given the gov't shutdown.

Really. It sounds like it couldn't possibly be real, but that is how our current administration is handling the situation.

My error. Not the White House (thought I read somewhere that they originated the letter):

af.reuters.com/article/worldN

CN1OQ1A5


I did see a headline, though, that Trump said the furloughed workers were Democrats, as if to say then it does not matter if they are out of work. I saw several articles pointing out that federal employees are not coming to work as Republicans or Democrats. Go give a civic lesson to President Trump.

Sure he understands, Sherri. It's the art of deflection and distraction from a White House on the verge of imploding.

If it truly were about the border and the wall (which it isn't), he had two full years while the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress to get his funding. Now he can say the Democrats want all the criminal elements to cross over.

Waiting on Mueller to put the last puzzle piece in place. Then the headache really begins for the Democrats to see what can be done without destabilizing the government. That is the biggest issue, not the wall, which will never see the light of day.

I feel so bad for the federal workers, those of whom live paycheck to paycheck. I understand the White House has prepared a letter for them to use for their landlords, their creditors, etc. It's a crying shame.

Yet, your government is shut down. So to speak.

Your son is right - what you get from any Google search is what the majority of similar searches yields and is looked at by the readers. This is why when you type in the word "idiot" you get images of Trump.

So any bias showing up in a Google search would merely reflect the majority opinion of the searchers.

But the facts speak for themselves. Immigration (or attempted immigration) via our southern border is definitely down. The "crisis" is non-existent. And basically, Trump and his sidekick the evil Stephen Miller are constantly feeding fears to maintain control. Nothing more.
