Went shopping tonight, pumpkins everywhere... and what did I spy... Christmas trees (artificial of course)... Just makes you shake your head.
The US government shutdown today, because the Democrat controlled Senate hasn't passed a budget in over 4 years. The Republicans in the house, tried to take advantage of the temporary 'continuing resolution' but Harry Reid would have none of it, he'd rather put 800,000 government workers out of work than do his job and pass a budget. Right now there is plenty of blame to pass around, but the real issue in my opinion is that the Senate Democrats need to pass a budget and be done with it.

Most of them take vacation days and/or sick days so they continue to draw their pay. Others get laid off like my brother-in-law who worked as a civil engineer at the Naval base nearby. I doubt it will last very long, like I said plenty of blame to pass around. Root cause of it all, is the Senate's refusal to present a budget as required by law... problem is the law doesn't provide a penalty if they don't do their job.
