"Shutdown"? Yawn.

So when Obozo "shuts down" the Gummint, what elements of the Gummint WILL continue to operate?

....an OMB memorandum from 1981 lays out examples of the many government functions of federal agencies that may continue during a funding lapse:
  • National security, including the conduct of foreign relations essential to the national security or the safety of life and property;
  • Benefit payments and the performance of contact obligations under no-year or multi-year appropriations or other funds remaining available for those purposes;
  • Medical care of inpatients and emergency outpatient care and activities essential for the safe use of food, drugs, and hazardous materials;
  • Air traffic control and other transportation safety functions;
  • Border and coastal protection and surveillance;
  • Protection of federal lands, buildings, waterways, and other property of the U.S.;
  • Care of prisoners and others in federal custody;
  • Law enforcement and criminal investigations;
  • Emergency and disaster assistance;
  • Activities essential to the preservation of the money and banking system of the U.S., including borrowing and tax collection;
  • Production of power and maintenance of the power distribution system; and
  • Protection of research property.  (Heritage Foundation via HE)
NSA will continue to record all your emails and phone calls; IRS will continue to take your money.  Granny will get her SocSec check and Medicare treatments.

Yawn.

We know what happens. Newt and the boys did it back in the 90's.

Oh yeah, and it was the Republic party. Sometimes I forget to drop the last two letters off the name of the political party.

Tim, as a Nooz guy, you should have the facts straight: CLINTON "shut down" the Gummint, not Newt.

Yet you never forget to stuff your fat face with donuts, do you Tim?

The question is since you were (thankfully) obsoleted, does your pant size start with a 5 or a 6?

Anony: I don't wear pants. I am so fat that only those 12XL fleece "workout" pants fit me now, because I'm stuffing my face with so many donuts thanks to the generous funds available from the proceeds of the lawsuit I won against the company that obsoleted me.

Dude said 12XL workout pants. Awesome response!

You wear a muumuu. Have another donut, you fat pig.

You didn't get shit from any lawsuit. Management got tired of your bullshit, and used the economy as a pretext. Thank jeebus you are out of the industry.
