Was anyone else actually expecting large portions of the government to, you know, SHUT DOWN for lack of funding? But I'm noticing that just about everything, except the select few high-visibility targets chosen by HomObama, going on normally.
I want a REAL shutdown, dang it!
What was being funded that is so important that we now don't notice that it is gone? Talk about a waste of money.
Yes - the govt. actually hasn’t SHUT DOWN - as one would think...a proper SHUT DOWN would see everything come to a halt - kinda like purging a PC of a virus...come to think of it - maybe that’s what we need to do - put the US in to SAFE MODE and get rid of the Obama_love_Pelosi.exe Malware that is currently infecting the system....
Those in government have forgotten that they serve us, not the other way around. It’s time to throw the bums out and let them know they are not a privileged class.
Every thing out of DC is kabuki theater. They have not told the truth in decades.
Yesterday I played bridge during work hours and one of my opponents was a furloughed IRS collections supervisor. I did not tell her so, but I was glad to see her playing bridge on Friday. She and her department had not worked since Monday.
Like the air traffic controllers?
But if you want to see 90% of the public turn against the GOP shut down the entitlements.
NOT a good idea. But this kind of shutdown which impacts very little of the public negatively is getting a good message across IMO.
