    Of course he is, as is Harry Reid. They are "governing" as dictators.

    This like watching people in a little box, who think the walls of the box are the extent of reality and of definitions.

    Unaware, or uncaring, that the rest of the world can apperntly see what the box people don't.

    Oh well, carry on. icon_lol.gif

    There is no "slimdown", it's a shutdown. Fox News needs to stop making up words.

    If Democrats had shutdown the government over Bush's tax cuts, somehow I don't think this same logic would have been applied.

    So impressed that you know more and have a broader perspective then the writer of the opinion piece. Your wisdom is truly impressive. Don't worry about any inconvenience in making a substantive comment.

    Try watching something besides MSNBC and reading liberal slanted "news" sources.

    1,350,000 'Essential' Federal Government Employees Continue to Work

    The federal government is shutdown. That means only federal government employees that are deemed "essential" are going in to work.

    We're led to believe it's a bare bones operation (Michelle Obama won't be tweeting, the National Park Service website is down, etc.). But in reality it appears the number of folks working is higher than half the federal employees. Or, in raw numbers, about 1,350,000 "essential" federal government employees are still working. And that does not include the 589,000 postal employees, who are working, too.

    That's 63 percent of the federal work force.

    Article needs a bump with all the left wing extremism here, which is just as moronic as right wing extremism.
