I have A good Idea, Give Some one funding for the
wall we need, then open up the Government completely ,
but you can't teach , STUPID.
Surprising that NO ONE has brought up how much money is being lost each day because the government isn't in full swing? Every day the democrats hold out costs Americans (the legal citizen tax paying type) piles of money that will never be recovered.

I'll bet that this charade has cost, in lost revenue, the money several times over what the President wants for the wall. Hell, even enough to add a second station and a bait tank.

If the day comes when democrats stop locking the front door to their house, remove their home alarm systems and don't lock their cars when they park them on the street, I'll agree with them that we don't need a wall.

Until then, they need to stop holding the American people hostage and get some work done to serve the Americans who are paying the paychecks they are continuing to receive.

I am surprised NO ONE has brought up Mexico paying for the wall...
Y'all remember that, right?

The figure I heard this morning was $1BB/week. I'm not sure if that includes the back-pay that furloughed Federal employees who aren't working, will be paid for ZERO productivity during the shut-down. (For some of those, Zero is only slightly less productivity than usual.)

I bet MOST are loving the 1 month PAID vacation... But they'll never admit it. Especially the ones who are Trump Haters ;)

Yeah and I thought it was kooky talk then too! I never thought they would ever pay for a wall, but we still need one just the same. Anyone who says walls don't work should talk to someone who lived in East Berlin.

Forget the terrorists coming across the border too.

If America does not get our hands around the entitlement liability that comes with all these new homeless arrivals (we can't even solve the problem of our own homeless population or provide affordable health care to all), we will find ourselves in the same fiscal boat as the state of Illinois with no mathematical solution.

Americans spend money on locks, alarms and security lights because it is cheaper than paying for the consequences of a burglary.

Walls work at prisons, but drugs still get in.
Walls work at zoosk, but people still get hit with monkey poop.
We can have cheaper, more effective border security by investing in personnel and technology.
If a wall is so important, why didnt it get funded in the first two years? They could have had all the wall money they wanted without a fight.
If a wall is so important, why does the WH inflate the risk of terrorists and drugs being walked across?

Politics on a fishing board. Yuck. On a side note, The Forks AOG Church is doing a food drive to help the folks down at the Quillayute River station. The base has a great relationship with our local community here in Forks and are very active in participating in lots of local events. Nice to see the community reach out to help them in times like this, since we all know they are certainly willing to help us when we need it the most!

I have a lot of faith in people and technology.

People are how the drugs get into the prisons and technology is how the RUSSIANS STOLE THE ELECTION!!! :frehya2:

A wall plus a hammer made out of a branch, a stone and some rawhide will work even when the power goes out.

Contrary to what the MSM pundits tell you, Republicans couldn't pass the spending bills necessary for the wall because they only had a the simple majority in the Senate. It requires 60 votes. They only had 51 votes. The simple majority works for SCOTUS nominations but not on Bill Passage. So the Dems prey on the ignorance of their followers when they say the Republicans should have passed immigration policy in their first 2 years. Impossible to do w/o some support from the other side.

Walls work, not 100%, but they slow the flow or at least funnel it into areas where Border Patrol has better staffing, and facilities to deal with capture and processing if people entering illegally.
Ask anyone who works for Border Patrol on the front line if they think walls work and make their job safer.

Mexico won’t pay for the 20’ wall but they’ll pay for the 21’ ladder
Want to end the shut down? Tell the president you’ll put on a parade. A really big parade, the best parade. It will be terrific.

IMO if you don't agree to the wall then you need to agree to eliminate all the welfare incentives that exist that lure them here.

There's multiple ways to git r done but I'm pretty sure libs don't really care what solution is brought to the table, they've been brainwashed that any southern border security is racist and some kind of humanitarian injustice. Plus it's a steady supply of votes they would be missing out on.

The savings daily is more fuzzy math and the numbers aren’t real!

They past a bill that assures all federal employees retro pay..... we aren’t saving shit! We are still paying the taxes to pay their wages retro.... the media won’t interview anyone who sets back and says they are enjoying the time off because it doesn’t fill their slant.

If I was sitting home for a month knowing Inwas guaranteed pay when I went back I would be stoked! I can use my savings, credit card, line of credit, whatever.... I’m getting back pay soon.....

It’s all smoke and mirrors, the only people really loosing right now is the American people who are paying wages for people sitting at home and the businesses in these areas who are loosing revenue, because the federal employees aren’t spending as much...

I think we need the barrier, wall, or whatever you want to call it... Dems have said it for years, Obama said it, Clinton said it..... the Dems hate trump so much they would argue over the color white.....

The government shit down is probably needed until the dems are willing to flex, but the only people loosing right now are the tax paying people....
