tourists shut out as government shuts down." I didn't think one man, whom I do NOT consider a man, like Harry Reid could shut the government down. But he did, he has done it. He is so controversial with his liberal views and so controlling of the US Senate, he refuses to negotiate. It's his way or the highway. How could one creep wield so much power?
The other side is no better and much worse if you are a liberal. When a country owes $17 trillion for not being able to control it's spending, it ought to be shut down! Period!
I would be upset if I was on the other side of the country trying to get into Yosemite or some other National Park. We saw it coming though, this collision of weak minds has been coming for a long time.
It is going to disrupt a lot of services but we survived when Newt and Clinton couldn't come to an agreement. We will survive this time too. If you take a job with government or any job, there is always a lack of security of staying employed or even getting paid. I remember when a load of us teachers drove to Wilmington to file for unemployment because our school ran out of money to pay us.
It's sad to see the country I love in such a mess but it's been snowballing for a long time. Man refuses to take the harder road to more security. We have been so blessed we have sat on our laurels too long as a nation.
If a farmer did that very long, someone else would be farming his ground. Bill O'Reilly has a Mad As Hell feature every Thursday. LuAnn could write a good one today and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org but we probably won't do that. Say a little prayer for my wife today as she is struggling to keep her non-profit going right now. Turning Point has done so much for so many people in need!
I wish we were taking this picture today but I don't think we would be able to drive the Going To The Sun Road.
Divided we fall and today we fall. I have tried to stay out of politics and religion and focus on my passion of agriculture but days like today threaten all the things we love.
