    Petition your government to tear down the WW2 monument, then.

    Sorry, dude...that's not going to happen. At least not while there are liberals around who know what you need...better than you do.

    The previous sections detail the employees designation, i.e. where they worked previously. Its still an interesting interpretation of "support".

    The Pentagon on Sunday called back to work most of its roughly 400,000 civilian employees, based on administration lawyers' legal interpretation of the recent government shutdown. That includes employees at Joint Reserve Base Naval Air Station Fort Worth.

    The base posted Twitter and Facebook that workers should resume their normal work schedules on Monday. The base commissary will also reopen.

    The order to return to work was given by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, five days after roughly 800,000 federal workers were sent home after Congress failed to reach a deal to fund the government.

    Hagel said the decision to recall the workers is based on a Pentagon legal interpretation of a law called the Pay Our Military Act.
    Typical. They assumed Republicans would blink, but weren't actually willing to go through with it when it turned out we depend on our civilian workforce.

    Or petition them to stop suddenly dumping money on blocking people from going to monuments and parks and intentionally trying to inconvenience citizens when there was no police presence there previously. Only you (well...only people LIKE you)...

    YAY!! The Commissary is open again. Thank God. It is way to expensive shopping out in town for most food items. Plus, my husband might get to start his physical therapy.
