    Re: Sharp Words Over Shutdown When Lawmaker Visits WWII Memorial

    So......when does this shutdown actually become....noticeable?

    The reason the government fears a shutdown so much is that it just exposes the needlessness and waste of money it was to begin with.

    If you are bound and determined to call someone a left wing political hack, just be sure it's a Democrat. I think for myself. You quite obviously don't. And still you can vote. What a country.

    You'd like to remove my ability to vote because I don't agree with you? That makes you worse than a lefty - they have another name for that but I don't want to get into name calling. Such animosity on your part is beneath you. I would never suggest you or anyone else shouldn't be allowed to vote - just shameful of you.

    That congressman was a jerk. And partisanship has nothing to do with it.
    Maggie I usually like you but you got this one wrong. The rangers should also have a brain.

    "I usually like you"

    What a lame comment. I think that means that you usually like her posts. As for the substance, I agree with Maggie. I blame the people giving the orders to make visiting unmanned national parks as difficult as possible. Put up your stupid sign telling everyone it's closed and then go back on furlough.

    I hope no one ever tells me to my face that they "usually like me". They won't after that.

    Let me rephrase that for you to reflect reality:

    Republicans are trying to get all that funded with the 1-year delay on the ACA insisted upon by a subset of the Republicans in the House.

    Democrats would be willing to get all that funded with no modification to the ACA.

    Neither side is willing to compromise, and this will not end until either someone compromises or gives in.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Congress didn't pass anything.

    Wow, you really have no idea who you're talking to if you're calling MaggieD a lefty.

    This whole mess started because the Republicans in the house tried to fiddle with the ACA and the Democrats in the Senate refused to let them. Neither side has budged in any substantive way on the key issue that started the mess.
