Good morning!

Ain't much going on except for a bunch of children shutting the government down.

Just hoping the Democrats don't cave to McTurtletraitor and Liftbro. Republicans can't be trusted under any circumstances.

If it weren't for people actually getting financially hurt, I'd like to see this extend to next Tuesday so we can see Donnie Littledick throw a fit.

But if the government's shut down can there be a SotU?

At some point Donnie won't be able to stay away from the golf course, then things will happen.

At work Thursday, the firm had a one hour meeting with the Chairman. He described how important it was and how hard they were working to ensure diversity in the firm's workforce, particularly as it applied to having more female partners.

Today the COO posted in the firm's private "facebook" page pictures from the women's march in Miami with the hashtag #equalityforall

Yeah - it doesn't suck working for The Man when he's this cognizant.

Good Morning.

Unexpectedly at the store today. They had a callout, and I happened to be nearby in Needham, so I skimmed out for a few hours.

Of course, this puts paid my plans to swim this afternoon and lounge in the sauna at the Y, but there is money to be made.

BTW, I spent the weekend musing, if you happened to miss it last night.

I"m very sorry they lost their lives, that is heart breaking. But does she understand that insurance payouts aren't instantaneous? If they died on Saturday 1/20/18 then its going to take some time to get through any paper work. They wouldn't have the money on Monday morning 1/22/18 no matter if the government was open or closed.

I'm not buying it. McConnell has lied before about making deals, and he will lie again. We can't trust him to keep his word on anything.

I agree, we can't trust McConnell. I really hope the Dems to have a detailed plan of attack when McConnell again doesn't do any kind of DACA fix.

Comment by trojanrabbit on 01/22/2018 17:39:54
Fuck you, you gotdamn cowards. You KNOW McConnell is lying and now Donnie Littledick is going to go off golfing and gloat how he fixed everything.

Go fuck yourselves, you're just going to be going through this again in a couple of weeks.

Spineless asses.

Comment by trojanrabbit on 01/22/2018 17:41:01
And guess what Donnie gets to do in his SotU speech on Tuesday. Yup, gloat some more. And you cowards will just let him bullshit.

I am not very happy either-- but if we get CHIP -- that is a big deal. Dems will still fight for DACA.

Doesn't that have to be approved by the House? You really think Ryan will let that get voted on?

The House has a me worried.

The thing is if we have to play this asinine blame game -- it is now fully and totally on the GOP.

Hmmm.. I didn't realize renewal of CHIP was included in the temp restart bill.

Okay, then Schumer didn't get a bullshit promise on DACA for nothing.

Did they only do it for the 6 year or did it get the full 10 so its cost neutral?

I've heard 6 years.

Again, I'll believe it when the House signs it.
And if Dotard has to sign it.....forget it. He's probably already off to Mar-a-Grafto to golf.

CNN reporting won't sign it.

I don't see anything to that effect on the website.

They were talking about it on the TV machine.

This is a 3 week funding deal. They have 3 weeks to get DACA and funding for the rest of the year.

If McConnell renegs, the Republicans are no better off than they are now. The government will shut down again before Valentine's Day.

And more people will realize what a fraud Trump's negotiation skills are. It does seem like he more wants to placate the racists in his base along with what Miller and Kelly want.

That McTurtle gave a verbal agreement on the senate floor -- That's a good thing. I understand dreamers being upset, but I think we will get it. At least millions of Children aren't being held hostage.

The GOP has less leverage than before imo.
