So, now we find out out, except for national security, just how worthless this big government of ours is.
Soldiers are still on duty. You and I on private enterprise will go to work tomorrow, as usual. And the legions of bureaucrats will stay home, knowing that they will still get their back pay right after the latest manufactured crisis passes.
And yet, We The People, are still here. Working hard, going about our lives. We will keep the Republic, Ben.
Good night and good luck.
I stayed out late and can’t get home. All the highways are closed!
take the city streets.. ;)
City governments are still open.
Thank god I live on a county road huh?
If the Kenyan can shut down our oil pipelines and power plants, I sure as heck don’t see anything wrong with We the People shutting down HIS “government”.
Fox coverage: global markets up over 1 percent ...
i wish it actually meant they were all fired.
so that to get things going again, there had to be debate and we could get rid of many alphabet agencies altogether.
i wouldn’t mind if a shutdown meant all politicians’ seats are open too. good ones would return, iffy ones might be defeated.
What if they closed down the government and no one cared?
Now that the stupid government is shut down will the low info voters finally realize government is not needed?
I can wait w/o the Fed Gov't "helping" me.
So how long until food stamp cards don’t get recharged, unemployment extensions don’t get mailed out, or federal ELECTED AND APPOINTED retirements get defunded?
Oh, right, aww, the Panda Cam is turned off, but the last 16 directors of the zoo are still getting their million dollar retirement checks.
The Wisconsin demwits went and hid out in Illinois, etc. That was so the sgt-at-arms couldn’t find them and drag them in to vote, hence voiding the quorum.
Republicans might as well take vacations, particularly to the backpack trails of (gasp!) the national parks (of Australia). This is brocko’s shutdown, it’s his. He said so. He said he was going to go it alone and run the country w/o the Congress. Let him try.
Republican House majority, play hard to get.
That is all.
CNN breaking news, 50 children have already starved to death, Obama tried to bring them some healthy snacks (that they wouldn’t want to eat anyway) but Ted Cruz hid his car keys.
More as this develops...... ;p
Remain calm citizen. Those helicopters are for your protection.
I’m concerned as my VA disability has not reached my bank account. I have never paid attention to whether it hit my account at midnight on the 1st, but if it doesn’t arrive, I’m gonna be in trouble.
Maybe someone else knows when VA disability hits the bank account. ???
I’ve been watching our bank account too....expect hubby’s guard pension, and his PBGC check......I’m all for the shutdown, but since there is no shutdown in taking in tax money, these checks should be automatic....
And at last, in an address to DoD personnel, the President acknowledges that the only critical function of the federal government is that of national defense. All else can wait.
Most banks post direct deposits in the morning. Panic after about 9 am local time.
If you where to get it on the 1st the funds would have been sent the 30th.
It’ll show up.
