Posted on 10/07/2013 4:32:54 AM PDT by don-o
A notice posted on the website of the Small Business Administration (SBA) warns furloughed employees that it is a "criminal offense" to use federal resources during the furlough period, including accessing government email accounts. Although the notice is directed to SBA employees, presumably the directive is applicable to furloughed employees of all government agencies. The full notice reads as follows:
Please be advised, during the furlough period, non-excepted employees will no longer be permitted to utilize SBA email or other federal resources. Please know that use of federal resources while on furlough status is prohibited by law and is considered a criminal offense. Employees must NOT represent the agency in any formal or informal capacity.

Utterly petty and evil. Now we see just what controls our commerce, our interests, our money.......our lives.
Obama’s administration is insane, asinine craziness run amok.
gee, imagine a government with an inherent fear disdain or hatred for most of its citizens, that shows authoritarian attitude toward uppity resisters to central control and regards federal powers including law as a tool to punish
Now give that govt control of everyone’s internet access and their healthcare
Are they allowed to go to the grocery?
Does that apply to the EPA director checking fake e mail accounts?
Well, at least it's an opportunity to expand our vocabulary. I enjoys seeing the word "petulant" used.
pet·u·lant ˈpeCHələnt/ adjective adjective: petulant
1. (of a person or their manner) childishly sulky or bad-tempered. "he was moody and petulant"
synonyms: peevish, bad-tempered, querulous, pettish, fretful, cross, irritable, sulky, snappish, crotchety, touchy, tetchy, testy, fractious, grumpy, disgruntled, crabby;
Is it just wishful thinking on my part, or has Barry’s *petulant* behavior this time around resulted in a public attitude more sympathetic to the House and less sympathetic to the Administration than was the case during Clintoon’s shutdown?
The word you may want is: sociopathic (or sociopathetic)
Obama, the undocumented Moslem Tyrant by Pelosi’s fraud,
HATES America and American small business.
Enough to attempt to close the Oceans.
what criminal offense would that be pray tell oh mighty govet? Has mighty govt forgotten that it is owned by the people and not by king obama
these retards are twisted
Just goes to show us that all those "shadow" accounts were merely thoughtful planning for the future. If there was a shutdown preventing them from working, which is currently the case, there would be e-mail accounts from which they could continue to work for the American People. The sole rationale for these untraceable accounts is for them to keep doing the good work they are employed to do!
Checking Gov’t Email During Shutdown a ‘Criminal Offense’
But posting a notice on the SBA website is not?????
Putting barricades up is ok however.
Shut down their money supply and watch the whole house of cards collapse as everybody jumps ship. I bet an examination of 0’s financal portfolio would yield some very interesting “relationships”.
Hoooo Boy! Are they going to have a mess when they come back. Mail boxes overflowing. It will take days to catch up. LOL.
Probably be a shorter list to state what isn’t a federal crime nowadays.
This whole administration is a criminal offence.
That’s a criminal offense, but a gang of minority thugs beating up an innocent old man is NOT.
In related news, seismographs around DC have been registering “swarms” of micro-earthquakes.
Alarmed, geologists have investigated every theory as to the source & cause of these micro-earthquakes.
1) Magma flows prior to a new volcano?
2) The earth preparing to open up and swallow the Federal Government?
It was finally determined that the tremors were coming from the Oval Office. King Barry was stamping his foot, saying, “I will have my way, I will have my way!”
Nobody is furloughed anymore except monument guards. This shutdown is a bust. Republicans should have closed the entire government with no tricks like SECDEF found to have workers go back to work.
How do they know when to pee or when they are called back???
