    I agree here 100%. We got lucky this time, service members were protected in this government shut down, unlike the last time where we wouldn't have been if they actually closed the doors. But how they can still continue to draw a paycheck when others in the government are working without pay or being furloughed is beyond me BRAVO!!! MC

    I think you nailed this one. Its such a strange situation to witness. Those that cause the problem seem to retain their salary. Remember the power of the vote!

    Yes, it is very strange, I think so too. Thank you Seosamh.

    I think it counts. More importantly your message counts. I hope they get there act together in the next few days.

    Thank you Rick. I'm late responding to this... they have at least "temporarily" resolved it, and my husband is back to work... I think they still have some things to resolve coming up.

    Nothing I can really add to this that hasn't already been said. I hope it gets better quickly. Working for the government is not what it used to be. Well expressed.

    yep I don't know what is going on anymore with our government, with our nation,... with the world. I do know one thing, my one little tiny complaint is nothing compared to what many others have to deal with. Thanks for your comment Drake, much appreciated :)

    A thunderous truth that must be heard!Democracy means "Power to the People" that is the Greek word, Republic is the Latin and means the same thing! Both supposed to work for the common good But both work for their party!

    Yes, I am not sure about the whole Obamacare thing, maybe they are trying to work for the common good by trying to get that repealed, I just don't know! But I know that this probably wasn't the way to go about it! lol Thanks Demetrios.

    Wow!!!!!!!!!!! Well said, I 100% agree with you. We should firer all of them and get the people in their that are not elitist, but people with everyday problems. Excellent Senryu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! great job!

    Yes maybe you're on to something! lol Thank you Sean, for liking my Senryu! :) Good to hear from you!

    I am sure this counts as a Senryu. You're the first person I've seen on Poetry Soup besides myself actually write about the news. I have a poem called the "The Price Of Petrol."

    You're right, I haven't seen anything about this ... I'll go check your poem out! Thanks PJ.

    I enjoyed your heartfelt vent my friend! And I don't blame you one bit for being very upset about this, we should all be very upset, I just wish there was something we could do about this... maybe voting out whoever is in congress now! But will that solve anything, I don't know, I'm at a loss! I'm so sorry your husband is in this lousy situation of not getting any contracts, I hope you will be alright, I will pray for you! As I do for our country! This is a fantastic Senryu, Great Work!!

    Thank you for your prayers. It is very scary, I didn't expect it to go on this long, I hope it's resolved soon. Thanks, Russell.

    How they justify paying hundreds of thousands of people for doing nothing is disgusting, situations bad enough without adding to it. Get rid of the lot of them and put the poetry soupers in charge lol. Great vent/rant Becca

    Exactly, how can they justify it? That is what I can't understand. haha Yes, put poetry soupers in charge, that could solve everything! :) Thanks Richard.

    Thank you, Joseph, I usually don't write about anything political, but this has been on my mind.
