    Washington hoards government jobs to maximize pain of shutdown

    The nationís capital has managed to spare itself many of the supposed troubles of the partial government shutdown.

    More than 661 Park Service police, a fifth of the 3,266 employees nationwide deemed essential, are currently on duty in Washington, D.C. alone, according to a copy of the shutdown contingency plan leaked to The Daily Caller.

    The preponderance of D.C.-based park police makes some sense given that the capital had a large share of taxpayer-funded sites long before the government spending gap. But the figure raises the question of why that number is not sufficient to maintain access to open-air exhibits and monuments, many of which previously had no guards.

    Worrying about parks is a waste of time, instead people should be focused on the reason they are closed in the first place. In other words, instead of moaning about the government is spending its money during a shutdown people should be focused on ending the shutdown.

    Those "people" include those whiners in the white house, senate, and house.

    It may but it is foolish to assume your average citizen can actually do anything about it.
