October 1: Government Shutdown

I'm not going to write about the United States government shutdown that happened today.  I'm not going to get political.  This isn't a Democrat thing or a Republican thing.  This is a get-the-damn-job-done thing.  I'm tired of politicians playing chicken with people's jobs and lives.

There are government employees who are struggling to pay rent, buy food, support their families.  And then there are bunch of rich, privileged elected officials who have second homes and three cars.  Those officials are holding the country hostage.  They're holding men, women, and children hostage.  And this weekend, whether the shutdown is over or not, they'll hop in their limos and be driven to their five-bedroom, two-bath homes.

Saint Marty's suggestion for the United States Congress and President tonight:  suck it up and get 'er done.  Because if you don't, there's going to be a lot more people out of work come the next election.

I'm tired of this crap
