Only the 90 year old WWII vets who were going to see their Memorial for the last time were hurt.

Thanks to the punk who ISN'T a Commander in Chief.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I was  inconvenienced.   Had to hide my beer until my government worker little brother was being paid again.

That 11% majorly inconvenienced bugs me. Is that not the rough percentage of those working for the Fedgov?

I was in the other 11% -- the minorly inconvenienced. The guy responsible for posting the week-by-week output for one of the NWS's long-range models (the CFSv2) was furloughed. The model was still running but it wasn't going out on the Internet.

You would think they'd've figured out how to automate that whole process... especially considering the entire rest of the NWS was kept working during the shutdown!

"A deficit is what you've got when you haven't got as much as if you just had nothing. If we tried any of this, we'd end up in jail, but the government gets rid of its debts by nationalizing them. That's like the alcoholic who solved his problem by pouring the booze in all of his bottles into one big container. Himself." (Charlie Farquharson, edited for spelling)
