    Easy fix for this whole problem. Stop giving free money to people. Many of these programs put in place by our government over the years were meant to help people, not give them a loophole to not have to work.

    Republican, Democrat or something in-between, who cares, fix the darn problem and do the right thing. This whole shutdown is over the ACA. Again another government program. Why not fix/address the programs out there before you bring another one into the mix.

    Maybe if we stop helping the whole world we'd have plenty for the people here.

    You're right. We need to get the freeloaders off the programs they don't deserve, but cutting the programs completely like the Tea Party wants to do is certainly not the answer. Lots of people are hurting, and need help.

    Washington better decide to give all the back pay to those not collecting pay now. I know that doesn't help when they have bills due now, but it will help some.

    Republican house voted to fund the government, just not Obama care. Military needs to step up and move the Obamas from the White house this weekend. I don't think the Obamas are home.
    Our hiking trails are closed, our riding trails are closed, it has cost way more to close them than to leave them open.

    Not true. Only developed facilities on forest service and BLM lands are closed. Public lands are used for recreational, ranching, hunting, fishing and many other uses. Only facilities such as campgrounds, boat ramps and the like are closed.

    It's funny but come the next election you "sheep" will do the same thing that you've always done. Either vote for the same S.O.B. to return to office again to continue the same old bs**t or not vote at all. If you don't have the b***s to do anything about the scum in Washington then quit bitching!

    Arkansas didn't get the word, they barricaded the entrance to exercise trails in town, so trkytrack2, you are right, only sheep would put up with something so stupid.
    When it comes to voting, I vote for the best candidate and never for re-electing anyone. I never voted for Algore, never for Obama either.

    we all know our votes dont mean crap in the presidential election, why we even have a vote for it is beyond me. its the house votes thats gets those power hungry animals in the big house. so your votes in the state that you live in for your states government is all the control we have when it comes to votes. side note, isnt it crazy that these guys spend millions on top of millions of dollars for a job that pays just over 100k? power hunger, it will b the end of this fine nation.
