So what does a "federal government shutdown" REALLY mean?
The Military still works and social security checks will be on time. The Post office is still posting letters and the "intelligence" agencies will still be doing whatever it is that they do. They are going to close the parks and that's a shame but that seems to be the extent of it. They used to say "non essential" federal employees would be laid off but they use different terminology today because people were asking why they were hired in the first place if they aren't essential. Personally I think with the exceptions noted above the federal government should shut down for about four months every year and if it works well enough we can extend it to 6 months. Meanwhile the states can run the parks.
Although the asshats on the left will tell you differently, It means that a few worthless federal employees will sit on their ass doing nothing at home, and draw a retroactive pay check; instead of sitting on their ass doing nothing at some bogus government agency.
Its like trimming the fat, except the fat comes right back... Yup. These Fed workers could disappear and no one would miss em.
AS for them getting payed?? They shouldn't get payed while furloughed. Who the hell pays people to sit home??
Oh wait. I forgot. It’s the Govt and they use our tax dollars to pay people to sit home and do nothing or sit in some Govt office doing nothing. If you’ve ever been to a VA office like I have, then you’ve seen that nobody does anything and that nothing goes on there anyway but a bunch of idiots wasting your time because they don’t know what the hell they are doing anyway... Just like at the Post Office.
Bottom line: It means the country is being held hostage by a radical group of deranged Leftist extremists led by that old fart Harry Reid who’d rather use extortion than see reason. And followed by another bunch of bullying socialist and special interest groups. And that's how Democrats passed Obamacare in the first place, didn't they!!
More proof wh t we need a president who is a Leader not a community organizer.
And the left says that Hillary Clinton should be the next president. What a Freaken Joke that is! She couldn't even beat an unknown Kenyan community organizer in her last primary... It’s even sadder than funny. Lets hope that Benghazi does not go away by then.
The thing I am pissed off about is the economy and a president who thinks he is God, but couldn’t punch his way out of a Paper Bag.
