    I don't think the threat of a government shutdown has ever really resonated with the public in a significant way. It's always brought up to score political points but I don't think either sides constituency really cares that much

    Corey Gardner from Purple turned Blue Colorado seems to have defected on the shutdown purely to try to keep his seat. Looks like Collins will follow suit if she wants to keep hers.

    I guess the perception is that the shutdown doesn't affect most Americans.
    I wonder if that will change if it drags on, and things like the TSA blue flu start to back up lines at the airport.
    Or if tax refunds aren't being processed and paid.

    Why doesn't trump take El Chapo's 15 billion and build the wall? Then he could rightfully say the Mexican paid for it. Plus he has the GoFundMe acct. that Mexicans can contribute to.

    Why not? Civil forfeiture laws allow us and we wouldn’t have to prove they were ill gotten.

    These lies make me wonder if he is doing it on purpose or if just isn’t aware of all the facts and does it by mistake because loves a good sound byte.
