It's been 5 days, I have yet to hear of anyone dying, injured or suffering due to the lack of government services, have you? 1dunno1

Quite the opposite in fact. It seems the local level runs smoothly when you shut down central government. Who would have known?

Better make it permanent.

If the pigs (oops, I meant people) and the vermin (typo, visitors) would pick up after themselves there wouldn't be a need for a federal parks service litter detail, each getting paid $65k per year plus medical insurance and a fat pension.

Our trash was collected today and our town uses taxpayer funded prisoners. The prisoners only make 15 cents an hour though.

Agencies affected, 9 and a few partials.....

"Federal offices were set to re-open Wednesday for normal business, unless they were among the nine departments without government funding. Those include the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Justice, State, Transportation and Treasury. NASA and the Food and Drug Administration are among the federal agencies hit by the shutdown as well."

These will affect the average citizen how? Does this mean I can book a flight and walk through the terminal without having to remove my hernia belt? Lmao

The only thing I've read about is an 85% reduction in the employee staffing for food stamps. Due to the closing.

Gee Sparky, if the "food stamp system" continues to function (God forbid the peeps don't get their beer & chips), does this show we don't need the 85% of the staff? If I figured this out with my business, OUT they would have gone!

Yeah, maybe I could go through security to get on a flight without receiving a proctological examination. And a gonad inspection.

That is my take on the shutdown. It will make apparent those who are redundant or not needed. The government is already broke. If they do not reduce expenses it will get worse. Getting out of Syria is good. Look at all of the money to be saved there. Instead of throwing good money down a rat hole never to be seen again and nothing gained for the effort.
