Never Yet Melted Consequences of a Government Shutdown
ya know...I disagree that this is a laughing matter. especially the dig about sandwiches and school lunch. I remember when that program was instituted. most states are going to decide if they go into more debt (without many other funds as well) or go on credit in a couple weeks to feed kids or go on credit to do something else essential to life.
and the sandra fluke is a decent acting human being who chose to speak up for something that some disagree with and has nothing to do with her own contraceptive care.
yeah, tawdry article at best.
