  • As a European, I don't understand how it is legal for government officials to decide to shut down government. I thought in that case the country must first go bankrupt or something of that scale. Now in USA, one man wanted wall with his name. He didn't get it. And he shut down the government. Just because he can...

Who is the real problem here? It isn't tRump by far.

  • The only thing I find annoying about Colbert is the constant need to announce “I’m your host, Stephen Colbert.” Because we don’t know who you are or do you just enjoy saying your name for extra cheers and applause? That’s like me announcing who I am at the beginning of every class I teach. “Welcome to class, I’m your teacher ____________.”

  • Wow...Its like a government take civilians as a hostage to get what they want. Government should work for benefit of people, not make them as a bargaining chips And I think america system is weird, how can government allowed to shut down just because disagreements of budget and policies? I mean I understand if the country is out of budget or in civil war but this is america, how can they out of budget?

Whew, at least our borders are secure... wait a minute.

  • Still mind boggling how so many support this idiot. How much damage and lies can the leader of a country do before someone steps up and gets him out so the country can get someone productive in there. This goes for both parties. Taking the country hostage to gain one addenda over the other is not what the highest power was meant for.

  • Love the prayer thingy. Anywho, I hope the federal government collapses entirely and we can go back to self sufficient living. The IRS takes homes from farmers, working class and,small buisiness owners who have fallen on hard times. But I'm sure Colbert isn't concerned about "those people" considering he's worth millions. But whatever, right? P.S. Colbert has never been funny. Morons watch morons regurgitating.

  • I have a very close loved one who works as an analytical food chemist at the FDA. He has been offered jobs of higher pay but refused them because it would mean working less in the lab, and that is where his passion lies. Yes of course he works to get a paycheck, but also because he legitimately cares about keeping food safe. He worked hard to get where he is, getting his PhD in chemistry, getting an article published in a peer-reviewed journal, and working numerous tireless nights. These federal workers missing their paychecks are not some bourgeois fat-cats who do nothing all day. They are hard workers, many who live paycheck to paycheck, who are being stiffed for absolutely unjust reasons.

  • BORDER Right now our Southern border is only 20 / 30 % effective with immigrants and the left want to keep it that way The Dims want to control OUR borders with drones like ZERO did fighting ISIS and watched them expand daily Allowing the dims to run immigration is like the fox guarding the hen house The wall is a foundation and the wall will stop 70% of the illegals After that the Republicans propose to add technology as necessary ? What Dims have to be careful about is some company comes along and wants some advertising and pays for a portion of the Wall ??? Monsanto / Goya / Purdue /Apple / BUD etc ???? Be glad your not one of those people who has had a relative killed by an illegal ?? If Chucky concedes to the wall funding he keeps his job If Nancy concedes to the wall funding she looses her job If the Don concedes off the wall he looses his job If Chucky maintains his stance not to fund the wall he looses his job If Nancy maintains her stance not to fund the wall she also looses her job If the DON maintain his stance to build that Wall he wins reelection in 2020 Chucky has one chance left Nancy is gone regardless of her action Nancys / Chucky's job is in the balance - all or nothing The DON has backed the DIMs into a corner and the longer this goes on it resonates with the public against the Dims especially when the Dims are on vacation and the DON is in the WH ? The DON has many alternatives while Chucky and Nancy are done , they are out of ammunition except for more created lies with no body Camera ? The DON has backed them into a corner and their political life is in the balance ?? Make no mistake this is a democratic shut down and democrats don’t care about DACA or the American public as they proclaim ??

  • There are several reasons not to worry about food inspectors and the government shutdown. First off, most companies have internal quality controls for two very big reasons that have nothing to do with inspectors... 1. Quality product means repeat business, lack thereof kills a business pretty quick. 2. Injuring customers will result in being sued which can either bankrupt or make liability insurance prohibitively expensive for the company. Also, like anyone, they are on their best behavior when inspectors are around which often isn’t indicative of behavior when they aren’t (your room was extra clean when you knew the parents were looking, right). What will be nice is companies who don’t have to worry about their businesses being shutdown over simple misunderstandings or because they didn’t slip an envelope under the table.
