Humans are by and large a stupid species.  We somehow boondoggled our way into technology, but the bears should have eaten us all long ago.

What a friggin' train wreck that speech was. I'd almost think that Spanky wrote it himself like he wrote that wonderful letter to L'il Kim last year. And just like that, a good day got better.

Right, I'm just wondering why democrats haven't done anything to put an end to this ****.  Maybe they have, I dunno,  Admittedly, I am not an expert in matters of government shutdowns.

They mainly just step on a lot of rakes.

Because they want to keep the “leverage” for future negotiations.  They’re not willing to give up that power.

Yeah, both parties.  Remember that Dems tried to hold government hostage to force Trump to protect Dreamers.  It backfired on them back in January 2018.  But they want it for the future.

fwiw, it appears to be one of the only times that i can tell that democrats actually tried to use the shutdown as leverage for some sort of policy goal.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_shutdowns_in_the_United_States

shutdown politics is basically worthless for the democratic party because they tend to actually care about having a functioning federal government.

It's why we still have a filibuster where you need a super majority to pass anything. Neither side wants to give that up.
