    Went to supermarket to grab item. Parking lot packed. I think, here's DC again treating 4" of snow forecast like a cat 5 hurricane. Inside there's massive line looping ENTIRE STORE of people with empty carts. I ask: What's the line for? "Food distribution for Federal workers"

    Some are thinking this shutdown will last through the entire year. Airports shutting down among other issues will start impacting the economy assuming it hasn't already done so.

    i read an article somewhere yesterday about companies around national parks that need them open. So they've taken their own money and are paying private forces to do the work. i suspect if americans keep our cool, we will see more of this. companies that can afford to do so will take over the jobs. it could cause a tax rumble however since the extreme thought could be that there is no one there to collect so we'll use the funds ourselves for this purpose. things like that could be thought out I suppose if we keep our heads. challenge the government with a somewhat peaceful but forceful revolution. and prove to ourselves that yes, we really don't need so much government. we're capable and we can think for ourselves.

    They have the meats -- "The special counsel’s office learned about Trump’s directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office."

    The only way it could be more 2019 is if there was a savage clapback involved.

    We're being held hostage by Trump and McConnell. Let's go to the tape (~15:00)

    Here's my awesome political take I deleted in the other forum: (grin)

    Time to cut off the pay for President, Congress, and their houses/offices or at least nuke Washington, DC and start over. Maybe all the interns and support staff at the Capitol and nearby buildings suffering will get the democrats to bend a little. I say meet at $3B and deal.

    The GOP had control of the House, the Senate, and the WH for two years from today. How is it the Democrats' fault they didn't pass wall funding then?

    I miss the good ole days when you could have your discussion in front of cameras so Pelosi and Schumer can't march out to the camera on the steps of the WH and lie about what went on behind closed doors.

    Glad Trump went before America yesterday directly trying to make his case for what he's trying to do to end the shutdown instead of meeting with Pelosi/Schumer behind closed doors again.

    GOP obviously distracted with trying to do other things instead of getting wall funding done before midterms. Now it's the pelosi's fault because she is needed, isn't going to budge, and has prohibited her puppets from meeting with trump. If you can solve the house, the senate should fall into place with a wider GOP margin after midterms to help if some GOP jump to the dem side of the issue.

    Absolutely. All 3 of my state's HOR are democrats (two of them rookies) and they all do what Pelosi does - dump on trump constantly and won't put pressure on Pelosi to negotiate to end the stalemate. You know puppets don't disobey the puppetmaster.
