That doesn't tell the story. In fact with these tea party freaks it's only going to get worse. They will screw the country to get their way.

I heard they want to/or did quit paying their staff. Someone last night was calling them kooks and I think that is poor form. But maybe accurate.

National Park here is closed for the moment, as reported on the radio.

Not a great inconvenience for the moment, other than those who use it for a cut through State to State.....

Reminds me of a comment I noticed via Twitter, a small business adjacent to one of the parks said he will be "furloughed" till they open back up. It's a coffee shop type restaurant, can't remember which park up in the NW somewhere.

When they will cost the economy billions to make a point...uh...yeah, they are not freaks, they are traitors imho, because they advocate chaos, and are hurting every one including the GOP.
