    This government shutdown is like Trump's wives and businesses; once he is gets bad publicity from it or it's too old for him, he wants out and find someone else to blame for the problem he created.

    Trump is just waiting to own the record for the longest govt shutdown, then he will cave and declare victory.

    I sure hope the White House and Congress don't wait until "today" (DEC. 8, 2019) to broker a deal! I don't want to be on furlough for an entire year!
    Looks like @CNN forgot to proofread their graphics and texts before publishing this video.

    Chris, methinks you are missing the point completely. If nothing else, every day the “big” government is shut down: 1) the government is literally smaller, 2) focus on the Mueller investigation (representing the enemy “Deep State” rule of law) is redirected and the rule of law is diminished, 3) fewer entitlements are disbursed and 4) as chaos expands, the need for a “strong-man,” aka, dictator grows.
    Why would the white supremicists ever allow the “big government” to resume operations?
    This wall is THE far, far, far right symbol of us vs them, that which separates white people from people of color.
    It’s not rocket science, just ignorance, and bigotry.
    The Democrats will cave because they are nowhere near as cold hearted and selfish as the Republicans.

    He lied about Mexico paying for it, and he had full control of congress since he got elected. Let him deal with the mess he made.

    Rich politicians holding your livelihood hostage over some BS. Makes you not want to work for the government.
