"Due to the government shutdown..."

"...the Armed Forces Network is currently unavailable."

 

That's what my son-in-law got when he tried to watch the MLB playoffs.

 

No football for them tomorrow.

Dam obama!  Just wants to make sure it hurts!  Bastard. Closed the grand canyon as well.  But the dems have not given much of a crap about the military.

Almost half of the NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration) is on furlough. You know, the guys who track hurricanes and tropical storms,among other things....

 

But all of the Border Patrol is on the job. Go figure. What's more important, protecting the public from hurricanes and storms or from the maids and nannies crossing the border for work everyday?

Ummm, the Republican majority Congress closed the gates, not the Dems, they don't have the votes.

 

Oh, that's right, the Repubs want you to believe their majority in the House isn't capable of doing this and the minority Dems voted to close the government down.

 

A funding bill was sent to the House. The Repubs voted it down, thereby closing down government.

Yeah obama is just letting the hostages stay with the people holding them. Smart move. Refusing to let hostages be released.

over 80% of the government still running?

 

Then they are trying to make some high profile cuts to inflict as much pain as possible this time around.

 

Remember how the sky was gonna fall during the sequester?  They won't make the same mistake this time

 

The chicken little politicians want to be needed.

No, I don't remember when the sky was going to fall during the sequester. I do, however, remember what was actually going to happen instead of listening to Fox News morons tell you what you wanted to hear to make you feel better, just like they are doing during the shutdown, er, I mean the slimdown.

seriously? this actually bothers me.  AFN has an immeasureable benefit to morale of thousands of soldiers.

 

A lot of the overseas bases have no other English language networks available, they're just screwed.

 

And computer access is heavily monitored, so they can't even watch online.

Anyone who thinks any one side is more at fault than the other is part of the problem.

The sooner you realize the problem is the mentality of entitlement and superiority that the douchebags in DC have along side for their total contempt for you and me the sooner you'll realize that the only solution is to vote against any and all incumbents. Once we adopt a zero tolerance attitude towards this kind of asshattery we will start getting representation that actually cares about their constituents over the lobbyists.

And to stay with the nature of the thread...

...all of the national parks I had intended to visit on my two week west coast vacation have been closed. Thanks you fugtards!
