Default Re: Government shutdown looming today

There are no words to describe how absolutely angry this makes me. I talked to my cousin a little while ago (whose husband is in Afghanistan right now), and she is literally freaking out. They have 3 children and she is 100% dependent on his pay. As a family, we'll all do what we can to help her and the kids...but there are so many people who won't have that luxury.

People with regular jobs do crazy things over messed up pay...and they want to tell the military, who they've trained to kill, that they're not paying them their full checks, or anything at all?

They must be really confident in their bodyguards.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.  3365
