    Shutdown Poll

    Here is the link, the poll is after the story. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartanntp

    Currently more people are saying that the Democrats should be the ones compromising, on an MSN poll. That is interesting and heartening all at the same time.

    So far, in all the years that I have been following USA politics, the saying from the democrats has always been "what's mine is mine and what your's is negotiable". Seems nothing has changed.

    Just voted... it's now 50% Trump, 48% Democrats.

    Except now Trump is calling them on it. I hope he will "stay the course".

    60% Trump; 47% Dimocrats.

    I have an idea that the polls are being tampered with to fulfill an agenda. After all, it's sponsored by MSN.

    Yes, considering I looked after posting and it was 50% + 48% + 2% = 100%

    Yeah, I never posted the "undecided" votes. I think that was something like 3% when I cast my vote.

    Methinks this whole set up is rigged to show support for their agenda.

    I'm trying to remember how the last shutdown in 2013 effected me. i can't remember, must not have been that bad. I do remember that the national parks were shut down and pay was delayed for the military and .gov employees. Seems pretty painless to me for something as important as border security....FUCK IT! SHUT IT DOWN>

    I agree. Keep it shut down. Most of the ones being affected, in the pocketbook, are dims, anyway. Maybe, they'll start contacting their dimocrat representatives and tell them step up and give the money for the wall.

    Cher calls on 'hero' Nancy Pelosi to give into Trump's border wall funding demand
    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/n...funding-demand
    Cher called on "hero" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to give into President Trump’s demands for a border wall for the good of American people.
    ...............
    The outspoken Trump critic said that the president was playing politics and Democrats are the ones who need to step up and stop the suffering people are facing during the shutdown.

    Nancy is democrat to the core. When King Barack wanted a wall she was all for it. Now that there is a chance to get one, she is against it because of her hatred for the current president.

    Hoping enough will turn against her and Chuckie and force them to capitulate... for the children.

    Pelosi is also the daughter of a past Baltimore Mayor who had ties to La Costa Nostra. So, she's been involved with gangsters all her life. It only makes sense that she would continue carrying on with the tradition she grew up with.

    She's dirty through and through.

    Republican Montana Sen. Steve Daines introduced a bill on the Senate floor Thursday that would withhold the pay of members of Congress during future government shutdowns.
    https://stream.org/daines-introduces...s-others-join/
    Daines’s introduction of the bill, sponsored by Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn, comes hours after Daines announced he sent a letter requesting the secretary of the U.S. Senate withhold his pay during the ongoing partial shutdown of the federal government.
    ............
    “Members of Congress are sent to Washington, D.C., to represent the great people of their state and keep the federal government open, working and funded. So it’s simple. If they can’t do that, they shouldn’t get paid. No work, no pay,” Daines told The Daily Caller News Foundation after the bill was introduced.
    ............
    Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw also announced Thursday he would refuse to be paid until the government is open, saying he asked the chief administrative officer to withhold his pay until both sides can come to an agreement on border security.
    “Democrats aren’t the only people who want this shutdown to end. Republicans have tried to compromise, but Democrats won’t come to the table and negotiate in good faith. I cannot let federal employees take the fall for Democrats’ grandstanding, so I am withholding my pay until this partial shutdown ends,” Crenshaw told TheDCNF.

    Dimocrats would NEVER vote for this bill. It doesn't make sense to them.

    After trying both Firefox and IE, I could not see any poll.

    Looks like they took it down. I expect that it did not show that the country was against Trump, and actually supported him, so they had to get rid of it. You know, it wasn't "news".
