    All this fear fomenting is going to be big business for proctologists. And what do the media and the right wing chickenhawks do, tell their constituants to pucker even tighter.

    It’s my understanding that no security functions of DHs will be affected. True or False (?)

    I believe you are right, simply because they will be compelled to show up for work but will NOT be paid until and only if CONgress decides to put petty politics aside and do the nation’s business AND only if they then decide to retroactively pay these people.

    It is my understanding that the security functions won’t be affected ONLY if the employees show up for work WITHOUT PAY. Please, can anyone explain to me how this is right, reasonable or just? Oh, yeah, that’s right, they are over paid public servants worthy of our disdain because all they are are a bunch of jackbooted leaches sucking off of OUR tax dollars.

    All the Demorats have to do is agree to the Republican budget proposal instead of tying up the government. Obama simply ignored the Constitution when he tried to grant blanket citizenship for millions of ILLEGAL aliens and the GOP is simply trying to stop him from becoming a dictator.

    For the last six years, when the Demorats controlled Congress they did not pass a single budget. Now that the Republicans are doing the job that they were elected to do you start crying. Do any of you liberal/gimmies remember calling the Republicans the “Party of No” when they were the minority? Does this look familiar?

    It almost seems that enemies of democracy and capitalism are behind the exaggerated political polarity that is paralyzing any prudent action from government.

    So you are saying it’s blackmail by the Republicans because “All the Democrats have to do is agree” and they add the DHS funding?

    The DHS won’t shut down, there will be a continuing resolution of some sort to allow security, or there will be remaining money from the past budgets or borrowing on future budgets, nobody is that stupid.

    Take a look for an interesting reaction to the entire mess:

    They’re shutting down the program that funds our police officers back home, our firefighters, our first responders. Any way you look at it – this is a national disgrace. And think about what our friends abroad, and those who are not our friends, are thinking about this.


    Republicans say, ‘Oh, we’re in danger, we have to go to go to war, put combat troops on the ground!’ But they’re wiling to shut down the department that protects Americans here in the homeland, from a terrorist attack.


    How does it make sense, at a time when we’re facing serious threats to our national security, to furlough 30,000, thirty thousand, department of homeland security workers, and to force more than 100,000 frontline homeland security personnel to work without pay?


    Why don’t theses senators go without their pay?


    Give up your pay! Give up your healthcare, give up your benefits, if this is so important to you. Oh, no, they’ll collect their pay!

    Will Obama make it as painful as possible to blame Republicans for doing the will of the American people?

    The GOP is doing[ this to] themselves. Seem only 17% of America wants what they are selling.

    Just the Republican “Domestic terrorists”, making destructive “ransom” demands and taking the Nation and the legislative process hostage – just as they did last time.
