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!

This is the idiotic type of reasoning that got tea party reps in congress.

If you cannot understand that the shutdown is 100% on the GOP then you either are not paying attention or won't accept the truth.

I think you might want to look up the word myopic and think about how it might apply to that opinion.

You should continue voting Republican and encourage your friends and co-worker to do so as well.

 

Then you won't have to worry about our national parks ever being closed again. 

 

Soon they'll be bustling with private developers, loggers, miners and drillers 24/7/365.  The GOP will use the untapped natural resources in our national parks to create good paying jobs for Americans who want to work.  The Republicans with the help of the Tea Party will make this country great again! 

 

Screw those job killing, tree hugging, entitlement driven Democrats.  All they want to do is lock up our nation's natural resources to save some spotted owls and Smokey the Bear!
