I'm an "excepted" federal worker. That means I get to still go to work every day and wait to be paid until after this nonsense is done. It is so stupid to shut down the government. Yes, some of us have to work with the expectation of being paid when the government reopens, but thousands of workers are furloughed, not working and, guess what? Congress will vote to pay them just the same so all the Trumpster has done is give thousands of workers a long Christmas holiday on MY dime and YOUR dime and lost out on thousands of dollars of work hours. No wonder he bankrupted so many companies. He's a complete brainiac. NOT. Why don't people learn from history??? Walls aren't for keeping people OUT, they are for keeping people IN that want OUT, just like the Berlin Wall did. As soon as they block us in so we can't get out. our Nazi fascist government will begin eliminating the population in earnest. Agenda 21 in action. Wake up, friends, we DO NOT want a wall that will turn us into rats in a trap. The CIA smuggles more drugs into America than the Mexicans ever will, that is just a ploy to turn people against each other. Stop falling for the lies!!

Please tell us more about how little you care if federal workers go without paychecks over Christmas and New Years (/sarcasm).
Did the government change how they have been doing business over the last decades, and now offer payments daily, instead of the 1st and the 15th?
