    My daughter in law works for the federal government in DC ... it affects her.  She's one of the people who has been working with no pay for over a month!  I feel sorry for she and my son.  She'll get her back pay ..eventually .. but that doesn't help her get to work and pay for child care NOW.

    How horrible.  But I'm telling you now, I feel horrible for her, but if she voted for that pig, I feel nothing at all.

    She did NOT vote for him.  She think he's a maniac.  I can't even imagine what it's like having to work without being paid ... plus not believing in that loser's cause!  If he and all his worshippers had to be without pay .. I bet the government would still be open!

    Ok.   I think he is a maniac too.  I cannot believe the idiots who back him and would even put up with no pay in the name of Donald.  

    I cannot imagine having no money.  My life would be over in a matter of a few months.

    If you do that a cloud of orange dust will fly off his face and could get in your eyes so to be on the safe side you should wear goggles (stole part of that joke from the Family Guy. Cheers!

    He has told more lies in one week than any President in 8 years.  That is the type of contests he wins.

    He's kept his promise to run the USA like one of his businesses - bankrupt and all the employees unpaid.
