propagannda most likely. I wouldn't read too much into it. Basicly it means that some offices won't stay open as much, cut backs on hours etc. It's basicly what happend a time or 2 in the early 90's before we saw prosperity.

nothing really to worry about, just grab some popcorn sit back and enjoy those ass monkies sweating crisco and pointing fingers at each other. I'd shoot both parties in the head cause both will bleed you dry just as soon as they look at you. One will spend the country away, and the other turns it into a communist party. either way the working people get screwed.

Here here!!! I am decididly (sp?) liberal, but I claim not allegiance to either party. I do claim allegiance to the SOB that we put in office who will do what is right for the people of the United States of America! So far, I haven't seen many of them at all. Wait....they all look like chimps being puppetteered by a lobbyist...fml. I'm just tired of hearing Obama sucks because (insert reason), the Republicans suck (insert reason), the democrats suck (insert reason). Get out and vote America. Stop whining and start acting! We control our government, and the should be mindful of We the People of the United States of America," not the other way around.

Actually no, that isnt' at all what it is. Seeing that your federal taxes fund my salary, I think I can shine some light on this for you all.

If they don't pass a budget by 11:59pm Friday (tomorrow), then there is no federal funding for anything starting at 12:00am Saturday morning. All non-essential, non-law enforcement, and non-emergency government employees and contractors will be immediately furloughed... which is the fancy word for ordered to stay home without pay. Any all business those employees and contractors work for or support will be closed. Nobody gets paid. Nothing gets done. And this continues for the duration of the bullshit until they pass a budget.

To put this in perspective there are 320,000 federal government employees and ~100,000 government contractors JUST in the Washington DC Metro Area. I'm estimating here, but non-essential, non-emergency, non-LE personnel is probably 1/3 to 1/2 that. This puts over 150,000 people out of work with no pay just in WDC metro area, INCLUDING ME.

And it trickles down. All the buisness in DC that those 150,000 people shop at all the time (lunch, office supplies, transportation, etc) have their daily business slashed. Nobody working = no customers. All of us that get furloughed lose money that we aren't going to spending on other things elsewhere. Guess what, I probably have to cancel plans to go to VT for a long weekend in the spring since I won't be able to afford the train or gas/tolls. Amtrak, the service stations, and toll booths lose my income.

It is the peak of spring touism season here right now. Every federally managed tourist attraction here will be closed. The entire smithsonian. Every monument and memorial. The national zoo. The US Park Service. WMATA predicts a 20% drop in commuter revenue. All the small local business that feed, hotel, and transport turists lose it all.

So no, it isn't some silly no-big-deal reduction in hours. It is a HUGE deal with an effect that will fuck up the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in and out of Washington DC.
