Question US Gov't Shutdown

A group of baboons is called a congress. I think they were both named for the same reason. Many people I know have been furloughed or have had at least one parent furloughed, some have both furloughed. What are your views on the shut down? Are your parents furloughed (temporarily laid off but still have a job without work hours or pay)?

I will continue to crochet until you respond on this thread.

Whose fault is that? The house is trying to pass laws getting them back, but the president and the senate are refusing to pass those.

Do you know what this reminds me of?
Two little kids fighting about who gets the last cookie. The president and the senate are basically the stubborn little kid who doesn't want to give the cookie up.

I agree, however there have to be two stubborn little kids to fight over a cookie.

My dad was furloughed for about a week before they let him go back to work. Early last week at school certain kids at my lunch table were having a discussion about the shutdown. One of them had absolutely no idea what she was talking about, and it took all my willpower not to storm over there and slap her. What is this world coming to? I kinda wish I was Canadian, or British, or something other than American right now.
