    A little of this and a little of that.
    Well the wife is out of work. She works for DOI. We are lucky for the moment that we both have good jobs. Give it a month and it will start to get tight. What most of the sheep in society don't know is this shut down and reopen will cost more then the little they save while most are furloughed.

    It's time to clean house next election.

    It's sorta strange to me hearing some people say "they don't care" only because it clearly shows that "we" as a country can't function on a day to day basis. We're the ones who put these douchebags up there and no matter where you stand (far right, far left, wherever) it means something is broken (especially communication). I'm here....in the "beltway" and this affects me directly. What bothers me is the tax dollars being wasted, revenue lost, and many things on hold that some of you might not even know about let alone care. But, for those who rely on these programs, contracts, loans, plans, processes....this just added major unnecessary stress to their lives. This will cost us more in the long run...it's the cascading affect.
    I agree with everyone on the "what's good for the public should be good for everyone on the hill" argument.

    I just feel sorry for all of the people that have paychecks that depend on these indecisive DB's. If anyone should have to go sans paycheck, it should be the House and Senate.

    Well it really is noting but a show of Power. I am no longer associated with any Gov. Thank God. My wife is Critical Staff so she will be taking on the workload of people that work over in VA. Senate and Congress need to pull up their big boy undies and come up with A BALANCED budget. I mean how hard could it be? We as homeowners and business owners do it all the time, just on a smaller scale! We as Citizens should never have to pay to enter or use a National park or monument that our tax dollars are used to take care of in most manners. The real issues of our nation will be put aside and ignored. Welcome to the real world DC.

    Yep. We came in this morning for 4 hours to shut the refuge down.

    FYI for anyone who wheels on federal public lands, expect locked gates for the time being, unless that land is managed through a MOU with other local governments.

    well now we've done it, a great site for tacoma owners is now digressing into the wonderful world of politics, proceed with caution!

    count me in as an "I don't care".
    will mail get delivered - YES
    will planes take off & land - YES
    will you still get taxed - YES
    will illegal aliens still get welfare checks - YES

    only time a politician cares about what you say is when you contribute millions to their re-election campaign.

    x2. I don't understand how those guys can make a decision to put thousands out of work, yet those morons are still getting paid. If I show up to work and DON'T DO MY JOB, I don't get paid. If thousands of people who are barely eeking by on a tight budget have to feel the squeeze, the people voted in who made that happen ought to have their livelihood cut down as well.

    they can't. In the article i posted it explains. Some members do feel they do not deserve pay either and "say" they are going to donate their pay or not except it.

    But there is a law that literally blocks them from not getting paided.

    I know that, it's actually even worse. Those jackasses actually thought about this in the past and thought to protect themselves in this type of event. Something like that should never have passed to begin with but that's beside the point here.

    I'll believe it when I see some of them 'not accept' or donate their pay.

    I am sorry for those of you out of work. But Washington is broken. Obama care was pasted with bribes and shady backroom deals. This is what is needed to defund the unaffordable care act. The majority of Americans don't want Obama care. Where I live my current health insurance would triple. How is that affordable.

    In ten years we will struggle to remember that this even happened.

    true..due to what is point out below. Its not the first time.


    there have been MANY worse things passed then Obama care in the past that are all Corporate driven. Thats what sad is our government is more corporate controlled then people controlled.



    this whole ordeal though could lead to even more uprising of the people though to bring back the power of the vote.

    But who knows. Like Chipskip pointed out, its happened a lot before. But who knows how the context of this time will change how the pulblic reacts.

    thats what will be interesting.

    Wife works for the CDC so she's out today also. I don't know if cleaning out the house and senate since you could get some worse people in there. I would say we need to have a group of people that can disagree but still be willing to give and take at times. I'm sure I'm dreaming but this two sided nation can't last that long, it's all about give and take.

    Obamacare was voted on and accepted. Regardless how, it is now law. Stop beating a dead horse and move on. I don't think holding thousands of jobs hostage to try and defund something you as a minority (lost the vote) want is the right action to take. If Obamacare fails, you can say "see, we actually know what we are talking about" but if it works, then you come out looking really bad. Personally I don't think it will work, but it can be tweeked to make it better, the base idea is sound.

    The only way this doesn't go past lunch is if someone locks them in a room and keeps sending them pictures of a lunch cart outside the locked door. :cool:
