The sooner the shutdown ends, the better! It has already gone on way too long. People are running out of money, and soon their utilities will be cut off and their children will go hungry. But does the Orange Ogre care? Of course not! That spoiled brat wants his wall, and everybody else on the planet - except his corporate cronies, and his boss (Ras)Putin - be damned.

Maybe we need Obama to come in and clean up another Republican S-it show. White folks can't jump? Maybe they can't run government either.

AN: Some people don't believe in climate change. All one has to do is look around, to see how the world is evolving. dt has already taken away FEMA $$ for CA.! It's going to get worse from here on out, with this id.

CD: WooHoo, AOC!!! Exactly right!!

RS: He doesn't care, at all about the shutdown, nor the trillions that he's wasted, and will continue to waste. It's all about him, anyways. ugh!

AN: Spreading the lies, isn't that was R's do best??

Yes!! Freya, end this shutdown!!

Thanks, Lynn for post, good articles!!

5:11 My goodness, what a grin. Think she's contemplating lunch?

CD - Just one point - the Saturday she said that on was last month - the first full day of the shutdown. Well, OK, one more point - of everyone in Congress, she's in the group which would get hit the hardest. The group of newbies who could not raise a rental deposit in time to have space of their own and had to bunk with someone else. Of course, that's also why she understands better than most.

AlterNet - 62% is a landslide. Parson is - (insert expletive here). Let's all wish SoINeedAName the very best of success with this little problem, It certainly isn't his fault.

RS - Hey, the debt is only important when there's a Democratic President. Did you not get the memo? /S

Universe - So true. "Morals" constitute a set of principles which guide the holder in determining right from wrong (my words, so no citation). The problem with some of our Evangelical Christians (Jim Wallis, John Pavlovitz, and William Barber seem to have got it right, so it's not impossible) have been using the principles of patriarchy for morals. Patriarchy is not suited to be a moral code (and incidentally, empathy is nowhere in it).

AN: Shameful we have fools running our country that don't believe in the climate change problems. They all be deaf, dumb and stupid if they can't see what is happening all around the country.
CD: I'm for them all our politicians suffering the same way over 800,000 federal workers are. Power to AOC.
RS: Agree with others that he doesn't give a damn about the shutdown. He's out to satisfy himself not us.
Thanks Lynn

3:25 (average 5:09) That’s going to grow into a big boy one day.

Alternet: Most excellent question, John Berman; Kudos to you. Sadly, I think it isn’t such a hypothetical question, I just hope the day some country’s leader, possibly the US, will have to declare climate change a national emergency isn’t coming very soon. Never mind the blubbering of the Republican, none of them would have had an answer to that question.

CD: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, you rule, girl! But why wait until the next shutdown?

Alternet 2: Please give that poor Missouri governor Parson a raise; he’s doing at least three jobs at once. Still a newbie as governor, he now also functions as the head Justice of the Missouri Supreme Court; knowing, nay feeling, exactly when an a Constitutional Amendment, accepted by a majority of voters is clearly unconstitutional, and of course the hardest of all: playing God and simply doing away with democracy in Missouri.

RS: Funny how the wall appears in each of his rally speeches, “because I promised that”, but the subject of eliminating the national debt within eight years never turns up, as far as I know. Darn that Alzeimer, it makes one so forgetful…

Alternet 3: Remember when you had to hand in an essay at school, you tried everything to give it some body by widening the margins, headers and footers and double spacing it? Apparently the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security went for body too by adding a 100 names that shouldn’t be in that report at all. And they still couldn’t make it more than 11 pages…

The Universe I live in too, even though I know little to nothing about gospels.

Thanks, Lynn. Great post!
