Well the house passed the bills to open the govt. All but Homeland security funded till about Sept. HS funded till Feb. so they all can work out any problems. These are the bills the Senate passed with about 90 votes in the last month or so. Lets see if the Senate now turns down their own bills due to Trump. So far 2 Reb. Senators have said they will vote for the bills passed by the house.

A military purchasing agent paid through allocated military funds.  I had many dealings also with civilian military purchasing agents.

When someone called Der Trumper on using Bullfeathers from Breightbart, he held up a Breightbart article that said Trump had been right, and claimed that proved he'd been right, AND HIS FOLLOWERS BOUGHT IT!

 

With that level of sophistication in their logical analysis, Trumpettes will believe only a Wall will solve the immigration problem because that's what lil donny said.

 

Only way to save the Nation is to remove Republicans from power and see they never get it back. Then we can see how to get rid of the hundreds of Nazi judges they packed the courts with, and restore sanity to our society.

News Flash.  Your thoughts opinions and values are valid;  Those folks that have thoughts, opinions and values that are different from yours are valid also.  Why is that so difficult to respect?

No they only correct the far right, and that is due to what the experts have told us make up the far right. The experts say: mostly white, rural, poor, uneducated, can not think for themselves, easy to lead. The thinking people try and help the far right improve themselves by giving them truth as that is the start of the cure of what was pointed out by the experts. Respect is something that is earned and until the far right goes through the cure it can never apply. Even Trump has no respect for his followers as he just uses them.

The duplicity of Yertle is typical Republican. We'll see how long he and his gaggle of elected plutocrats can throttle their constitutents before one of them notices they won't be back in 2021 if they keep it up.

 

I'm wondering if this problem with paychecks for contract workers might be a blessing in disguise. Right now, the poor soul who is stuck actually doing the Government work - be it general maintenance of the buildings or operating our spy satelights - receive about HALF the pay and benes of the displaced Fed with the difference going into the pockets of the Contractor. Now that they see taking such a job can result in a total loss of their income from Republican stupidity, they may refuse to take those miserable terms, which may cause an end to this insideous form of income redistribution.

 

Anything that works against the "gig-economy" deserves our wholehearted support - it's our grandkids futures that are on the line.

So that is your opinion, what's new?  And what are they supposed to mean?  I guess some has to resort to pictures when they have nothing to say.
