One of the **best** possible side benefits of this "shutdown" is the

illustration, by their absence, of just HOW WELL the government is
actually continuing to function while alledly "shut down."

Not really... let me give you two examples:

(1) my ski/snowboard buddy moved to Maine and plans to open a micro-brewery and "tasting room." For this needs an ATF permit (TTB to be specific.)

(2) 1 million Federal workers have been "forced" to work without pay.

Regardless of how you feel about the appropriate size of government in the long-run, you must agree the current situation is disruptive and untenable.

Aparently there is enough money to pay park rangers to turn people away but not enough money to pay them to do
their assigned jobs.

Especially hilarious for monuments like the WWII one, which are privately funded and entirely open; there's no need for a "ranger" at all. Even the guides were volunteers when I was there.

Highly recommended if you've never been, btw.

And when you consider that the Federal Government is utilizing far more personnel to "guard" the WW2 Memorial than they were willing to send to Benghazi to save LIVES....

THAT is OBSCENE.

It is almost as if government was one big bullshit act with two sides shoveling to see who can fling the shit
higher or faster.

If you're just figuring that out, you're a little late to the (political) party.

No, not just figuring it out I am just surprised that other people are surprised by the foolish crap. "Holy
crap! They are screwing around! but hooray for our side! The other side is totally different and much worse!"

It's all political posturing.  That's really the most obscene thing about this administration, and the one that will do the most long-term damage: this administration introduced Chicago-style thug politics to Washington.  There was always a political struggle but now it's a war and the communist media and academia are gleefully participating in it.  The thug-in-chief is relying on the communist media to get out a message "see how much pain is being caused by the shutdown -- this is their fault!"  Fortunately that plan does not seem to be working as well as they were hoping.  People are seeing that the world didn't end, things are still mostly getting done, and they're realizing that perhaps those million government workers aren't so essential after all.

As expected ... people continue to believe what they already did, and continue to blame whoever they already blamed.

Not blank if you use WebCit for your access.

Not just a picture, but a picture of text on a plain background. Efficiency!

Not far enough. An angry mob with torches and pitchforks would be more appropriate.
The current occupant of the white house is, after all, a direct report of Satan ... and Halloween is coming soon.

I don't think Satan would take him seriously.
