Impact of a government shutdown on federal agencies - The Washington Post
"Non-essential services" shut down. Roll that phrase around in your head while other people to afford things like essential auto repairs, mortgage payments, roof repairs and tuition while having around half of their income confiscated to pay for that slop.

When considering the hyperemotion of the Hapless Left serf class, theses "shutdowns," are reminiscent of the confusion one might expect of a flock of fattened sheep on the day that their alcoholic shepherds have passed out and failed to appear.

Yup. "Non-essential." That's how the strong arm men who take the money from productive individuals to pay for all the silliness have defined it. You aren't calling their judgement into question are you?

Ideology was also behind a lot of things. Mao comes to mind. Rather than be led by an ideology not shared by the entire country perhaps the far right should try to make a law better. It would save everyone a ton of grief. Do you know why they don't work to make the ACA better? Because of partisanship. That it. Nothing more.

Well of course. We can't have the Commoners looking behind the curtain during periods in which their Masters' incompetence is on display, now can we?

(The sheep will not see the beautiful, elegant irony here, and may continue bleating.)
