Sorry Dude, not mad at you. Just frustrated with the system that's all.
Our "elected leaders" play politics while the citizenry suffer the consequences.

There is no provision in any law I know about that provides anything like benefits during a shutdown. Heck there is never supposed to BE a shutdown of government. The only time it happens is when we spend more than the debt ceiling and we hit it 6 months into the year.

God help us next year! We are shaping up again to have no budget come 1 October. If the politicos decide not to pass a continuing resolution to fund next year at this years levels we will have no parks again in the Fall.

I can understand the frustration. We get to vote again may 2nd because of budget conflicts.we need a majority government up here or nothing gets done. the parties are always doing what's best for them not the people.we have had a minority government for a little while now, that's frustrating.

You are right. (actually the end of the month and the 15th) But I predict they won't reach a compromise anytime soon. Each side is rubbing their hands in glee because they each believe the other will get the blame for a prolonged shutdown.

They have their eye on the prize; the 2012 elections.

I will be shocked if there is an eleventh hour compromise. Both sides have dug in their heels pushing FOR a shutdown. One because they believe they were elected to cut borrowing not increase it; and the other because they truly believe the budget cutters will take it the neck if the government does shut down.

Politicians and divorce lawyers.... what a crock, either way the good guy gets screwed, republican, democrat either way.... just like the government letting 3rd world countries control our economy and allowing the gas prices to soar, that's what kicked off our recession yet now we are in a more brittle economic status today than the last time gas hit $4. Sorry to vent...

go camping, especially if you are a government worker.... just think, you might not have to be to work anyway

I see a bipartisan backed bill to pay our troops, while not paying congress and the President (and cabinet), will be vetoed by the President.

Yes, on looking back, I should report my own post,
Not only did I hijack the thread,

I am skirting with "politics"!

Tried not to pull it one way or the other, except to show the total stupidity of it all.


I think I will stop now.

If they spent their time addressing the problems at hand instead of trying to make each other look bad they'd never get into the situations they find themselves in. But it's not them that ever suffers from their political games.

Just read the gates at all Nation Parks will close at 12:01am the day of the shut-down and the campers will have to vacate within 24-hours. All Park Police will remain on duty to protect government assetes and be sure everyone leaves within the 24-hour dead line.

Made my reservations back in December for Arches N.P.. We had planned on surprising the kids with this little trip. Hope they figure something out.
