    Tell them they can't just shutdown our government in their effort to polish their own egos. Tell them they will be judged at the polls if our economy suffers.

    why? It's Obama's fault anyway. And 80% of the gov't and important services are still working.

    "Under a budget law passed 39 years ago, the House and Senate must approve 12 appropriations bills funding the federal government by Sept. 30, the last day of the fiscal year. It almost never happens.

    In the past 17 years — in 10 of which Congress was controlled by Republicans, four by Democrats and two with mixed leadership in the chambers — Congress did not meet its statutory deadline for approving the spending bills." -the Washington Post

    Things like this don't just happen over night.

    I believe the democratic "party has people in it that want to see a functional government that works for the people so that we don't have the poorest portion of our public roaming the streets diseased and hungry. The other party has a bunch of radical anarchists who want to see the whole place burn just so they can rule over the ashes. Just look at what happened to all the conservative ideas about community, personal responsibility, and accountability in the Republican party. They're running against their own ideas, voting against their own bills." - Adnan Muminovic

    ^^

    yeah so Obama bails out about 10 banks and 2 car companies and leaves the poor poor and the homeless homeless - great plan. I guess money talks and the poor get jacked.

    OK, there appears to be a concerted effort by the radical liberals on here to post Republican-bashing political topics in the "All Things Gay" folder in an effort to get more eyes reading their topics.

    These topics belong in the "News and Politics" folder. Your attempts at forcing the majority of RJ members (who AVOID the "News and Politics" folder because they hate this kind of crap) to see this crap will be met with a balance of topics pointing out the Democrat's culpability that I will post in the "All Things Gay" folder if you don't stop.

    Don't take this personally, but you're an ass. Actually do take it personally. How would you like to be furloughed, earning NO income to pay your expenses because of political fighting.

    There are hundreds of thousands of federal employees, including myself, that are currently NOT earning the income they need to make ends meet. It's time for you to grow up, get your head out of your ass and think. This is not some big joke, this is a serious issue for many people who have long careers supporting people like you with very little recognition!

    Your comments are selfish, ignorant and just plain stupid!

    I'm furloughed too because of the shutdown, and unlike a classless piece of snot like you, I don't go around calling people an ass if they don't agree with me. Stop acting like a lib with all the name calling crap.

    If you can't handle the fact that people will have different opinions, then you're not mature enough to post in a forum.

    that's bs, average federal salary is like %115k which is grossly overpaid compared to the average American income, so their "service" can be shut down for a bit. Whiney federal workers never get fired, so get over it.

    You're full of it, my salary has always been well below the private sector for the same type work. The whiny ones are those that lost their jobs in the private sector after the economy tanked, then suddenly federal workers are over compensated and under worked...never heard that in the mid 90s did you? You have NO idea what the hell you're talking about.

    Whatever dude. You go ahead and call everyone that doesn't subscribe to your views as 'lib'. I hope having one political party hold your job and salary hostage because they don't agree on something instead of negotiating months ago then laying you off endures you to that party.

    As for my name calling, sure it's low but if you've read any of that guy's postings you'll see his post are arrogant, offensive and ignorant, so he is just an ass!
