I’ve lost track: what day of the ‘Trump Shutdown’ are we in now? Everyone losses track after the record has been broken.

Yes, people are being inconvenienced. Yes, people have been furloughed and are not getting their paychecks (yet). My brother-in-law is among them. Yes, it’s tough. Things are tough all over.

 The Guardian writes a sympathetic article titled ‘It's ruining people's lives”: federal workers count cost of shutdown.

White-collar workers face blue-collar blues.  Randy Erwin, president of the National Federation of Federal Employees, said, “This shutdown isn’t funny anymore. Right now, it’s ruining people’s lives.”


Do you know what else is ruining people’s lives? Don Suber does:

Not having a border wall ruined a few lives as well. Ask the Angel Moms.

And by ruined I don’t mean seriously inconvenienced, I mean ruined.

Don’t worry though, it seems the Democrats are all over this “manufactured crisis” and will get on it as soon as they get back from their scheduled all-paid vacay in Puerto Rico.


“This year’s winter retreat promises to be our most widely attended yet with over 220 guests, including 39 Members of Congress and CHC BOLD PAC supporters expected to attend and participate!”

Trust that the remaining 171 “guests” are lobbyists. Nothing telegraphs concern quite like attending a “winter retreat” on a tropical island where rooms go for over $450 a night to rub elbows with lobbyists looking to buy your vote for their client’s pet projects.

Trust me furloughed Federal workers, the Dems feel your pain, as they always have. Which is to say…
