Congress seems set to avert weekend government shutdown

There are 43 comments on the WBT-AM Charlotte story from Dec 7, 2017, titled Congress seems set to avert weekend government shutdown. In it, WBT-AM Charlotte reports that:

Congress seems set to prevent a weekend government shutdown, but lawmakers and President Donald Trump still have longer-range disputes to settle over spending, immigration and other issues before they can declare budget peace. With many on both sides deciding a headline-grabbing federal closure would be a political blunder - at least for now - the House planned to approve legislation Thursday financing federal agencies through Dec. 22. The Senate seemed ready to follow.

But how can you be as blind as not to see that your country is attacking, invading and occupying so many countries, that you have to ask yourself why it is doing that. All of these countries are small, defenceless countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria, which had no possibility to attack you, and never did anything to you. The stories, which are used as pretexts for these wars are so phony that they demand explanations. For example, Iraq was invaded on the pretext that they had WMDs, which were not found there; Afghanistan was invaded on the pretext that Bin-Laden was there, and he also was not found there; Libya was bombed on the pretext that Gaddafi was doing genocide, which also proved untrue.

Your wars are definitely not for your security, as no country ever attacked you, and it is not likely that it ever would. It is obvious that your wars are to provide big International Corporations with new resources, new cheap labour, and new markets. And the wars are also for the arms companies to sell their products. These companies could reorient, and produce agricultural machineries and other more useful things for your country. And you people would not be dying all around the world fighting the unnecessary wars, and paying for them. Why are peaceful policies so unacceptable to you?

their share of airports, bridges, public uses, schools

Another farce. The government does not shut down, except for maybe 15% non essential departments that get their money as soon as the can is kicked down the road once more.
That's a mindless assumption.

Just because you continue to receive your social security disability check doesn't necessarily mean that the United States government isn't shut down.

US Military personnel aren't paid. Their rents are typically delayed during a government shutdown.

Interesting that you'd substitute liberal and democrat given your obvious experience observing your associates and neighbors there in Republican majority Kentucky that voted Trump by more than 85%. A major portion of Kentucky's counties have 60% of their residents receiving SSI benefits and regretfully including their drug addicted Preemies. Most disturbing is the number of teenages in Kentucky giving birth to Preemies addicted to opinoid, heroine and methamphetamine

Are you of the opinion unwanted pregnancies should be carried to term? Then fed up to Republican Pedophilies to satisfy their insatiable predatory appetite for adolescents and minor children.

Because you aren't adopting any and you whine about funding programs to care for children born into impossible financial circumstances.

Stop infringing on the rights of women minding their affairs, exercising individual liberty and doing what's best for their pursuit for happiness.

Are you under the impression that conservatives don't abort pregnancies?

I had to memorize the preamble in grade school. Have you forgotten?

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Promote the general welfare. Translation: we don't let our fellow Americans starve, even if some people would be okay with that.
Promote the general welfare does NOT mean pay for freeloaders to create a state of generational welfare status.

But if you're feeling in the bleeding heart "giving" mood, you can donate to numerous charities who can do the SAME THING in a more efficient manner without raising my taxes.
