  • The Blue Flu

    This is not a good development:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/fi...cid=spartandhp
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    IDK. The overall usefulness of the TSA has been suspect for years. I doubt we see any uptick in terrorism.
    A new life awaits you in the off world colonies; the chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!

      Last time something like this happened Reagan fired the Air Traffic Controllers. We survived.

        Maybe it will speed up getting through to your flight while nothing untoward happens due to the lack of security checks...

          Donald isn't for border security, he shut down the government. Now with the shutdown, our border isn't as secure and patrolled.

            Hundreds of Transportation Security Administration officers, who are required to work without paychecks

            That is an attack against America. TSA folks must be paid. I dont blame any TSA folks for doing what they can to oppose this grave anti American injustice of TSA workers not being paid during a so called partial gov shutdown. They have every right to strike for improved rights. Our country was built by the working man whom served admirably in WW2.

            To all TSA workers, you have my full support and thanks for keeping our country safe.

            Whether a Democratic or Republic is POTUS, all workers of the USA even if they work in the Gov need to be paid and taken care of for their contribution to the country.

              Do we live in Cuba, in North Korea?

              No this is the USA, workers in other words people who contribute to society are owed support. I found it to be one of the most anti American issues one can think of to hear about how TSA workers, everyday Americans, are not paid during a so called Gov shutdown...that needs to change.

                That got hysterical quick.

                Furloughing an employee is not totalitarianism. They will get back pay when the govt reopens and last I heard there were even low and no interest payday loans being set up. Calm down. The world isn't ending.

                  Complete BS. Law enforcement agencies are required to continue to work even during government shutdowns. The prisons are not unguarded, the Border Patrol is still on the job. Also, Trump didn't singularly shut the government down. The obstinance of the Democrats not willing to compromise on his wanting a wall funded has as much or more to do with that.
                  But, if either party doesn't care about border security, it's the Democrats. They have many in their party that want to abolish ICE. Others call for open borders. Many Democrats expect everyone that asks for asylum be given it. They call for families that illegally cross our borders to be released on nothing but a promise to show up for court hearings.

                  So, one more time you are completely and utterly wrong.

                    You do realize that those who served admirably in WW2 are well into their 90ís now doní't you? I doubt very much if any of them are working let alone for the TSA.

                      You're out of contact. How many times does someone have to hear and see Trump vid from the WH saying it's his shut down and he would be proud to claim that? You should work for FOX with you endless spin.

                          That's because others took over the duties of those that were fired. That's quite a different situation from what is going on now. Survival isn't the issue-doing what is right is.

                            Trump is for Trump-nothing more, nothing less. He doesn't understand what 'service' means nor does he understand the common leadership traits-especially selflessness.

                              TSA isn't law enforcement. They have no arrest powers or legal authority.
