Let's take a family like mine as an example.
Let's say I've lost my income to the #GOPShutdown .
We have 2 adults and 2 children to feed and a $1000 mortgage to keep up.
So off I go to our neighborhood short-term loan provider to see what they can do.

China buys Bankrupt US Farms to cut out the middleman & compete in US Food Supply. Specifically, Alibaba is targeting Walmart.

Normally, I avoid politics, but as a military spouse, here are my thoughts on the #governmentshutdown2018 A THREAD.
2. My wife and I are discussing what we plan to do in the event the shutdown isn't solved by the next pay check. We have savings, but they are for my sons' tuition fund for college. We only have $3,000. Why are we debating between their futures and buying food?
3. My parents have said if the worst happens, they'll help us, but a) we are in another country and b) why are my 60 year old parents supporting us still when we are 30?
