    Ok, bring the troops home and keep it shut down until Obama and the Congress agree to endure the same Obamacare they're forcing on the rest of us.

    It's been one crisis after another with this worthless president.

    The House is still in session trying a last ditch effort to pull a rabbit out of the hat.. The Senate has adjourned and said if it isn't a clean CR, forget it.....They are going to have a press conference shortly...

    Hm.

    Hopefully we don't all die in the streets. From what I'm told, we cannot survive without the federal government.

    A last ditch effort at playing hot potato with the Senate over who is responsible for shutting down government. However, while they're screwing around with the potato the floor has come out from under their feet.

    We don't die every weekend when the government shuts down.

    Yeah it does. Call Congress at ten pm.

    Servicemen aren't government, they work for the government. I do serve i am a peace officer, even though I work at night and in weekends I know the government doesn't.
