US Government  Shutdowns, Political  Showdowns,  Erected Walls… – By Yvonne Sam

Government  Shutdowns, Political  Showdowns,  Erected Walls and Contentious Calls

Democrats and Republicans do–  For while the Government play Americans pay.

As 2018 drew to a close, America, or better put the American people found themselves looking at 2019 from a partially closed or shutdown perspective, wondering about the future of their great nation. Although not alluded to, or even briefly mentioned, this is the third government shutdown, in the less than two years since Donald Trump assumed presidency.

The barrage of media coverage regarding resignations, social media missteps, Russia probes, indictments, and the countless shenanigans, all served to lull everyone into an amnemonic aura– into a strange sense of forgetfulness that it was nothing new—just plain old déjà vu. .  Wake up America—You  started 2018, with a government shutdown.            Continue reading
