    Tsa agents should all walk out and go on strike. That will bring a swift end to this shutdown. Airports would have to close and pressure from big business and Wall Street would be unavoidable.

    It's not just TSA, FAA is impacted. I know a guy who had to give up 2 (so far) lucrative charter flights because his inspections are on hold.

    Putin is a genius! He doesn't need to attack us with nukes - just put a moron in the WH and he'll destroy the country for him.

    And DJT does not care two hoots whether you can pay your bills or not. Its all about "my way" or take the highway...sad.

    At a high cost, federal employees who voted for Trump are reaping their just rewards ...

    24000 a year is less than 12 an hour.... Amazon pays 16+ just to walk in the door..... the McDonalds down the street advertises on their sign 12 an hour... This might end ugly.

    I refuse to take any unnecessary flights during the shutdown. I am not going to go on vacation while the people who are there to protect me aren't even getting paid. In my opinion, that is the patriotic thing to do. I've sat with Controllers at their workstations, stood next to them in towers and I stand with them and all government employees now subjected to forced labor. In fact, we are that which we abhor; no better than the DPRK. I've written to my Senators and Congressman. I've made my stand on travel. Have you? Have you done anything at all? Or have you just taken the well-beaten path of blaming all the world's problems, all your problems on one temporary government employee?

    Since when is the mechanical safety of an aircraft not essential?

    Without TSA screeners & Customs agents, it will be a like a free pass to enter for international passengers ...
    Before shutting down the government, did Dotard think about who would protect our borders at airports ...

    To ALL TSA and aircraft control employees. PLEASE, next week Tuesday call in sick. No flights within the US. The cost and shock to the country will be awe inspiring and King Donald will be unable to sustain his position, The memory of that event will carry into 2020.

    Is it good for the country. In the short run terrible, but in the long run outstanding.

    Trump and the Congress just doesn't care about the families of federal employees. If they did they would compromise... a sad day for the American people.

  • Bud Simpson

    That Trump just never stops making America grate again...that's not a misspelling.

  • Life's a River

    Trump is deliberately trying to trigger a real national emergency, so he can give himself emergency powers. He IS the national emergency. He must be stopped.
