Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 14, 2019

The U.S. Coast Guard offered its employees a set of clueless tips Wednesday on how to deal with the crippling government shutdown that has cut off their paychecks, suggesting they walk dogs, throw garage sales or enlist as "mystery" shoppers. Other than cutting back on your expenses, the only other way to compensate for the loss of income is to add new income," states a five-page tip sheet published on the Coast Guard's Support Program website.

While the Coast Guard has taken the Managing Your Finances During a Furlough tip sheet offline a copy was posted on scribd:

Have a garage sale - clean out your attic, basement and closets at the same time.

Sell unwanted, larger ticket items through the newspaper or online.

Offer to watch children, walk pet or house-sit.

Turn your hobby into income.

Have untapped teaching skills and expertise? Tutor students, give music or sports lessons.

Become a mystery shopper. Retailers are desperate to check how their in-store customer service is and will employ you to shop and rate their service.

Filibuster required. As an American I am so tired of the Republicans catering to Israel as if we owe them anything. Remember Netanyahoo addressing both houses of Congress and how the Republicans didn't even inform President Obama? Sick of it. It's unAmerican. Republicans today are so sold out they don't even know what country they are citizens of.

#3 - Danni it doesn't matter what thread you're on, that your response. You just need to copy that and paste it on every thread. It's really all you have to say over and over and over again.

Everyone here knows that with the Coast Guard hamstrung people are going to die, right? That people WILL CROSS ILLEGALLY INTO THE US MORE EASILY?

You Trumpites are in a class of your own.

The Coast Guard is part and parcel with Border Security.
The Coast Guard isn't working and isn't being payed.
So there can't be an emergency.
Or if there is one, it's all Trump's fault.
Trump cuts his legs out from under himself again.

I guess they are never going to get paid for the shut-down time. Who knew?

#10 - how long is the shutdown going to last? What are they going to give up to make sure other things are covered? What damage will be done to them financially?

You trump-humpers are callous jackholes.

There is no grantee of that is there?

Are the Banks accepting IOU's?

Will the workers get interest and damages?

Anyway what does it REALLY matter? They are all Democrats anyway. Isn't that who we want to hurt?

Congratulations on your being one of the biggest farging ice-holes on the DR.

Thanks siri.

Pelosi and the Dems have to stay strong, giving in to Trump now would enable a dictator. No President should be able to just say give me the money to build a wall (or anything else) or I will shut down the government. He'll be feeling the heat pretty soon, he needs to be left out there owning this. He'll eventually cave. Long live Nancy Pelosi!

In the worst case scenario coast guard members can pimp out their 13 year old female relatives to the orange diaper sniper.

Of course he is. And on some other thread he'll tell you all about his love for our boys in uniform.

Takes all kinds I guess.

Uber or Lyft makes more sense. For most of us a successful garage sale would help the family budget for a week or less.
