The tRump Shutdown continues with no end in sight

Well, the tRump shutdown continues!

Yeah, what a shocker that is! This is now day 29, for those of you keeping score at home.

It's funny how, even though tRump is on video saying he's the one doing the shutting down, he and his merry band of Rethuglican sycophants are now hard at work, waging a PR campaign to say it's all the Democrats' doing.

Mark my words, the spinning and the shutting down will both go on until the political cost of continuing on with it becomes so high that it outweighs the benefit to the Poser Prez.

It's working for him in that it helps to keep his cult followers engaged. They love his stunts, and this is one. Another dog-and-pony-show. Complete with American troops hanging out at the border. Hanging out on our dime with nothing to do.

Nothing to do, that is, except to help the Tangerine Tyrant perpetuate his bullshit story about brown people swarming over the border en masse, hell-bent of raping and murdering good, God-fearing Americans--meaning white people--and bankrupting the country as they all get subsidized rent, a free, taxpayer-funded cell phone and food stamps.

This shutdown and all the lying, spinning and gas lighting will go on for a while. It's causing great harm to our economy and imposing a terrible burden on Federal employees and many others whose well-being and livelihoods depend on a functioning Federal government.

The shut down--and the tRump presidency--will only end when the outrage of Americans who clearly see the horrible cost of continuing with business as usual becomes so intense, so all-consuming that it will penetrate the edifice of cruelty and lies that tRump has constructed.

That day cannot come soon enough.
