Government Shut Down

Postby Omaha Red Sox » Fri Apr 08, 2011 12:48 pm

My cousin, active duty in the Air Force, just got this email from the Secretary of Defense: “As an active duty essential personnel, you will report for duty as normal, and work with no pay until Congress provides the appropriate funds.”

It's nice to see that political posturing takes precedence over treating our men and women in uniform respectfully.

I'd say what I truly think of congress about this, but I'd get carded. It's certainly not PG-13. :-C

Agreed. (not about getting carded; that my opinion on the matter also has lots of very bad words)


So if the government isn't at work, then we don't have to have our taxes done by the 15th, right?

Agreed as well (about the opinion and not the cards).

I think that's only fair that we don't have to have our taxes in, and they should find a way to still pay those of us who have refunds coming ;-)

Apparently they got something worked out. And what's this I hear about we have until the 18th? Maybe I won't do my taxes today after all.
