Nearly 3,000 Federal Aviation Administration safety inspectors were furloughed along with most of the National Transportation Safety Board’s employees, including accident investigators who respond to air crashes, train collisions, pipeline explosions and other accidents.””http://news.msn.com/us/impact-of-government-shutdown-felt-across-the-us
Does that give you a clue as to how concerned the government is about you being blown up by a terrorist when the government has no problem laying off those who inspect the airplanes that you are about to board? Oh, that’s okay, if your plane is blown up, they will just plant a fake passport from someone who is from Syria and claim it as an act of war. Syria get ready, Iran you too!
Where was I? Oh, yes, terrorism. Is not the U.S. government terrorizing women and children by ceasing their access to needed food? Where is the U.N. when we need them? Human rights abuses, anyone? A hungry child is not a healthy child and a hungry pregnant woman is not a healthy mother-to-be.
In Ohio, 3,000 children had already lost the services of the Head Start Program due to the sequester and now with this shutdown, let’s just say that the situation went from on life support to someone pulled the plug.
If you’re planning on starting a small business with a loan from the government, too bad, so sad. Those of you who were just about ready to buy that house with a government loan, I hope you didn’t turn in your notice to vacate your apartment. Oops!
And can you believe it? It is the 123rd Anniversary of Yosemite National Park and it’s CLOSED! How’s that for a 123rd Anniversary celebration?
Government workers! Those of you with those great paying jobs and benefits, you’ve got some holiday time. Enjoy!
To the people not yet affected by the shenanigans of the U.S. government, just you wait. Your turn is coming, never fear.
This is such a shining example for what other countries should strive for, exactly what we have here. Partisan bickering, overpaid, pompous asses who will still get paid and for doing what? Not a goddamn thing but costing this country more money in shutting down and starting up the fucking fucked up government system run by these assholes who, not one of them has our interests at heart. Our tax dollars shut down whenever they feel like it. The blame game continues and year after year, we see this shit play out and what do we do about it? Not a goddamn thing. Being considered the laughing stock of the world should not concern us. What should concern us is the fact that if we think this is bad, just wait. You ain’t seen nothing yet! The U.S. government, apparently, has yet to strike real ‘terror’ in the hearts of Americans because we keep taking it in the ass without grease and beg for more! Can I get any more blunt then that?
