This isnt a hmwk or test question just a general question. Why do you think the Government deserves to have the power to just "Shut Down"? let the answers start now :)
i think there are two sides of it, as like any other controversy. they are human, they deserve a break. but in my opinion, they need to stop acting like children, compromise, and get the job done.
Good answer lol and I agree they do deserve a break but other jobs have schedules so while one person is on break the other one is working and vice versa ya know i mean the government is the core of our nation they are what gives us our drivers license and they deliver our mail manage some of our prisons if they shut down half the country shuts down.
exactly. i live in a kind of rich neighborhood, and my family is the black sheep of it all. all these families that have connections with the government, and some are mayors, governors, etc. they're all freaking out. I'm not really worried, my opinion on the government is pretty negative. BUT, as you said, it is the core of our nation. and to shut down over something as stupid as this, reflects our country. they just need to work it out and get back to managing the nation.
exactly like i have a government job im a firefighter but my job is and essential so my parents were like whats going to happen now and i said to me nothing just because the government is being childish doesn't mean we will just let houses burn and people die. The government just needs to step up to the plate and fix the corrupt system they created. I love hearing your point of view though other people should get into this because it effects everyone. your mail stops the DMV stops almost ever government task just stops dead in the water until the agree on a budget.
The only reason why our government 'shut down' is because we spend sooo much money on things we do not need, like new roads. Why do we need black cement roads every where ? we don't. We just spend money on nonsense and things we don't need. So than it takes away from our money which caused our government to shut down, because spending so much money on nonsense makes it where the government can't pay for things we actually need. Like schools, jobs, etc.
that's nice! my cousin was a fire fighter and now he farms. the fact that everything just stops, kind of upsets me. yeah, it's government based. but if the government is this childish, then jesus, what next? and another thing, americans. the way the whole country freaks out at once. like that itself can cause the nation to crumble. i don't care if the government is up and running or not, if the people freak out and go chaotic, then it's over. there's no government without the people. if everyone would just calm down we could all work together and figure whatever the situation is out.
^i agree with that but we also spend it on stuff like red bull stars and stuff like that someone doesnt deserve 4mil because they can wake board like really -,-
Exactly, our government is childish and spends too much money on things we don't even need.
but we will never be able to work together the democrats and republicans will never be able to get along. What about first responder's i mean im not asking for millions but we lost a guy in a fire 2 nights ago and his family is stuck with the bills no one is helping them but the guys at the station and myself the government is still charging the crap out of them with taxes then has the nerve to claim that they are broke thats what pisses me off
that's one of my biggest problems. the whole not getting along thing. to me, that's still acting like a child. so what you have different views? we're stuck on this freaking planet together so tough it up. i will never understand why repubs and democrats just won't open their mind, consider it from a different perspective, and just work together for the benefit of not only our country, but the world. and to lexis, when i was in middle school back like.. 5 years ago. i was just as passionate then as i am now lol. the school had 60" flatscreens put up in EVERY CORNER OF THE SCHOOL. the girls restrooms had doors without locks. there was graffiti everywhere. lockers that jammed constantly. our textbooks were outdated and ripped and torn, the special needs kids didn't have the resources they needed. and you use the money to put up flatscreens everywhere so we can know at times f the day what the lunch is going to be? bite me.
