First, let’s just call it what it is. Political theater with bad actors!
What we have does not constitute a shutdown. If you go to the airport, TSA agents will still grope you. The IRS will collect taxes from American paychecks during the duration of the shutdown. The NSA will continue spying on Americans. Yemeni’s remain under the threat of droning. Heck, Obamacare even went live on the first day of the shutdown. Well, sort of.
This shutdown sucks.
Instead of a real suspension of government activities, a huge number of which violate the Constitution, we have barricades at national parks and shuttered websites like www.usda.gov.
Due to the lapse in federal government funding, this website is not available.
Apparently the furlough took out Michelle Obama’s social media person. Her last tweet declares updates will be limited during the shutdown.Details
