All in the name of illegal immigrants. Sad!

It's fear mongering at its finest. Most people wouldn't even notice that the government was even shut down if the media didn't report on it like it's the end of the world.

Why would they be worried? It's essentially an unscheduled paid vacation

It's been paid vacation in the past. Bad thing is I like to hunt national wildlife refuges and those will be shite down as well

Government employees will probably get paid retroactively, that's how it's always worked before.

Bad thing is that for contractors like me, it's simply authorized leave. I must take vacation.

No doubt government needs to be slashed by at least half. Between the early and ridiculous retirements and the fact that we have so many who are corrupt, it's time to cut the fat and cut our losses so less people are in position to be corrupt. Today's government is all about making their jobs easier with higher pay. The people have to be out in force just to beat the numbers in a tax hike election. Too many government employees voting yes on all new taxes. Today's politicians also concentrate too much on social issues. We just need infrastructure and national defense. Leave everything else up to the people. STOP SENDING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO PEOPLE LIKE IRVIN MAYFIELD (though he is one grain of sand on the corruption beach).

Agreed. Just put out a notice only essential employees should report to work on Monday.


They keep their jobs. Everyone else gets a pink slip.

Why would they be worried, always turns in to a paid vacation without having to use leave.

Since you're going home, does that mean I can have your stand for the weekend?
