    And POTUS isn't a flip flopper? He's the flip flopper in chief!

    Ahhh, cmon, go get out of the house and buy yourself something nice with your extra Trump money....

    Hopefully it offsets your losses over the last years paying sky high insurance premiums and deductables...

    Haven't noticed any extra money (yet)...we'll see. Couple more weeks? Be interesting to see if there's a bump.

    No losses per se on insurance. I'm covered at work. Still, the company takes out money for my insurance, and, its not as low as most of us think it should be. We've been losing ground for years.

    Fortunately, given that I get a yearly check up, I get paid enough between that and what the company plunks into my HSA, that, its a wash and balances out to nearly zero. Still, its a benefit for working for "the man". Glad I don't have to go out onto the open market.

    No health issues last year...so...no deductible. Knock on wood!

    Anyhow...had a "town hall" type meeting with the top management of the company a week ago or so. Someone asked question along the lines of "what's the company going to do with all that extra money from the tax cut". Interesting response. CFO said it was a net wash. No savings. More than likely higher taxes on certain items but they were still figuring it all out. Hmmm.

    Looks like the budget ball got kicked down the beach...

    So let's see if I have this all figured out... Democrats managed to accede to Republican demands, demoralize their energized base, give the president another win, and look like they held a meaningless three day government shutdown - all at once.

    There's blame to go around...but...I might actually agree with most of the above.

    Good thing it was only the weekend-ish. Shouldn't be too much of a lodestone in the mid terms, but....we'll see what happens with walls, immigration and DACA.

    Plus, we get to go through it all again if they don't get their poop in a scoop.

    OK so is the Gov Shutdown over then? What was the compromise, if any?

    They just kicked the ball down the beach. Approved temporary funding until 8 Feb.

    So, unless congress pulls its head out, we'll be right back in this in a couple of weeks.

    For the fans here of the fake news "Clinton News Network" (CNN), even they had polls that showed the Democrats were to blame over the president and the Republicans.

    Although "Trumpshutdown" trended way higher than "Schumershutdown" on social media...

    Single item bills.

    Ugh. Green eggs and ham.

    So the preferred liberal version is trending higher on the extremely liberal social media sites..... what a huge surprise!

    /End Sarcasm

    This has been a huge bitch of conservatives for year. All the major social media site are extremely liberal and there algorithm's favor liberal topics and ideas. Several of the social media sites, most notably Facebook, have come out and admitted as much and promised to try and be more fair in the future.

    How about elections are what they are... probably no country interferes in other countries elections more then the US.

    But for some reason it's OK when we do it.

    I have to agree with you, but without the word "probably".
    Utah is a very special and unique place. There is no where else like it on earth. Please take care of it and keep the remaining wild areas in pristine condition. The world will be a better place if you do.

    McConnell made a great move when he promised DACA would be moved to the front of the queue "provided the government was funded". If Democrats attempt to hold 300 million hostage as they did in the recent shutdown they will just be picking up their shovels and renew digging the same hole that didn't work for them last time. I'm sure there will be more twists and turns, but it would be crazy stupid for the Democrats to try the same tactic in two weeks that just failed miserably.
