    You still not getting it. It's one or the other. Try to be objective sometimes.

    My blind hatred for Trump, which has been beaten into me by MSM, will not allow me to be objective. I am now just a programmed robot doing George Soro's bidding. And I won't stop until humanity has been enslaved and decent white Christians are forced to live like filthy minorities in their own country.

    Oh, we can still file. And they will even process the one that owe them money. But the ones they owe money are gonna have to wait.

    Does the government shut down mean that the banks are closed?

    Is your bank the Federal Reserve?
    It's not the shutdown

    Well, the “why” is she is denying him a platform with congress as a backdrop to grandstand to the public. Something he loves to do.

    The “how” is that the leaders of the House and Senate (McConnell and Pelosi) both have to formally invite the president to speak in front of congress. She’s simply trying to withhold her invitation.

    So... Thanks for helping. I understand that there has to be an invitation from both McConnell and Pelosi. Pelosi's presponse is

    I'm curious if she can justify security concerns in dollar amounts. I'm not sure, but I think she's in uncharted waters.

    I don't think that really matters. I read that as a pretense for not inviting him. I don't think she really needs to justify it at all.

    Donald strikes back, in his typical petty way with little regard for national security.

    There is zero question it's all pretense, and political posturing. I figured that'd be implied.

    Does this even make sense?

    None of this makes sense.

    Tbh, I see this as the exact same as what Pelosi did. No less, and no more, petty.

    It’s all BS. What a **** show.

    This is all just very stupid. Pelosi, I think, is attempting to make Donald feel some personal consequences for the shutdown. I'm not convinced it will actually move the needle at all in the negotiations though.

    I don't really believe this is the case but if Donald Trump really is in the pocket of Vladimir Putin it's easy to see this shutdown over maybe the most idiotic thing imaginable as exactly what he wants. It destabilizes the US and makes us (and liberal democracy) look weak.

    And every last one of them should be irrevocably politically ostracized for it.

    **** DC. No, it’s not equal. But who cares if a mugger kills me or the combination of Manson/Bundy. Either way I’m dead and I. DESERVED. BETTTER.
