    Federal Government Closes AMBER Alert Website.....

    The government website for AMBER Alerts, a service dedicated to the safe recovery of missing children, has been closed during the shutdown. The name is a reference to Amber Hagerman, who was abducted and murdered in 1996. Over 650 children have been safely recovered since the advent of the AMBER Alert system.



    AMBER Alerts are broadcast through radio, television, road signs and all available technology referred to as the AMBER Alert Secondary Distribution Program. These broadcasts let law enforcement use the eyes and ears of the public to help quickly locate an abducted child. The U.S. Department of Justice coordinates the AMBER Alert program on a national basis.....snip~

    Well.....who is really responsible for closing this down. As the piece states.....the Domain name is more than likely already paid for. Funny how they would take this down. But leave up Michelle Obamas.....Let Move Campaign and Website, huh?

    Update: they Put it back up.

    Holder realized they would be breaking their own law.



    According to the U.S. Department of Justice FY 2014 Contingency Plan, one of the categories of activities that will continue is:

    5. Those related to ‘emergencies involving the safety of human life of the protection of property,’ i.e., where there is a reasonable likelihood that the safety of human life or the protection of property would be compromised, in some significant degree, by delay in the performance of the function in question.

    The total number of agency employees expected to be on-board before implementation of this Contingency Plan is 114,486 (see attached Table 2).1 An estimated total of 96,300 agency employees will be excepted from furlough under the plan, as shown in Table 1 below. Note that this amount includes 6,428 employees whose compensation is financed by a funding source that will not lapse. .....snip~

    If one were only to listen to Republican talking points for their news over the government shutdown, one would never know that the House Republicans put a fantastically contentious demand in the bill.

    Well, Obama should have thought about that with his Democrat pals when they gave Congress, Corporations, and Unions that big break and didn't pass it off to all those working class people they love to talk about so much. Including all those poor people.

    Then when he decided he would stand his ground stating he would not negotiate. Fully knowing the problems that were now coming to bear as the truth to his Signature Legislation.

    Even his own buddy Buffett said scrape it and start over.

    The GOP closes the government and MMC is upset that he isn't getting government services.

    Ah the tea party and its logic.

    God, I love this rightwing meme -- it's the goofiest yet.

    Try again.....I am not upset that I am not getting government services at all. Unlike You I was thinking about those kids that get abducted. Course now you would need to call for help in such a situation. Whereas I would just act and take care of the matter. See another major difference between those such as yourself and myself. Wherein you just talk the talk.....but can't walk the walk.

    To bad I'm not one of the Tea partiers.....first ya came with Conservative. Now ya come with the Tea Party. Desperation doesn't become you HOJ.....well then again.

    There seems to be cognitive dissonance between your OP and your posts once the OP is challenged. Like clockwork

    And you do sound upset so much so that you actually blamed Michelle Obama, like a good tea partier does.

    Not at all.....But when you get done looking for another tangent to play with. Maybe you should wonder why MO's Site is still up when others are down as Non Essential.

    No doubt a socialist like you would like to see him put in a gulag, wouldn't you. Admit it, you have that powerhungry craving to even up the score flowing through your veins. Like a good little socialist does.
