You ever hear of 'mission essential' personnel?
Not all Civil Service folks are given this distinction...
Why does the Government classify some workers as essential?
The really sad thing here is the fact that you obviously believe you asked an intelligent question. Geez!

Obviously, any worker whose job is connected to emergency response, law enforcement, health, life and safety is essential to the workings of government. Others like someone sitting on the Commission of Fine Arts are hardly "mission essential". What a stupid question.

Last time I checked, France wasn't a part of the United States. That's what we are talking about...try and keep up.
But France is still considered an ally. The only thing Realtime is right about is spying does occur in every country.

But we've breached the trust of our allies in France, the UK and Germany.

And there's good reason. It can't be denied as commonplace. Because it isn't.

The Kennedy Space Center is alive and well and open for business but they couldn't save everything. And besides, after The Mousetrap and The Surf closed, nothing else really seemed all that special.

The Titusville Mall is also being bulldozed.

""The NSAís domestic spying program, known in official government documents as the ďPresidentís Surveillance Program,Ē("The Program") was implemented by President George W. Bush shortly after the attacks on September 11, 2001. The US Government still considers the Program officially classified, but a tremendous amount of information has been exposed by various whistleblowers, admitted to by government officials during Congressional hearings and with public statements, and reported on in investigations by major newspaper across the country.

Our NSA Domestic Spying Timeline has a full list of important dates, events, and reports, but we also want to explainóto the extent we understand itóthe full scope of the Program and how the government has implemented it.""

Of the 37 Presidents of the United States before Jimmy Carter, at least 18 or 21 (depending on which source you believe) were close relatives. That comes to somewhere between 48.6 percent and 56.7 percent-far to much to be coincidence, as any conspiritologist (or mathematician) would tell you. Of the 224 ancestors in the family tree of 21 Presidents, we find 13 Roosevelt's, 16 Coolidge's, and 14 Tyler's. Another source manages to relate 60 percent of the Presidents and link most of them to the super-rich Astor family. This data does not include genealogies of the five most recent President. Psychologist G. William Domhoff claims that a large part of America's Ruling elite, just like that of Europe, are related by marriage.

The GOPís narcissism problem

During the government shutdown, Democrats accused Republicans of waging a politically craven effort to undercut Obamacare at the nationís expense.

As it turns out, Republicans agree.

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll includes a stunning little tidbit: A majority of Republicans think their partyís congressional members are more interested in doing whatís best for themselves (51 percent) rather than doing whatís best for the country (46 percent).

When you throw in independents who lean toward the GOP, 58 percent say the GOP is more apt to do whatís politically advantageous rather than whatís best for the country.

By contrast, 66 percent of self-identified Democrats say their party is more interested in doing whatís best for the country, versus 32 percent who think itís in it for the wrong reasons.

Now, to some extent, this is about unhappiness with Congress. Americans of both parties donít have much patience for what leaders of both parties have done (or failed to do) in recent weeks, and thatís going to manifest itself in any polling question you ask ó even about leaders of oneís own party.

But more than that, this is about the increasingly significant divide in the governing philosophy of the Republican Party.

The fact that most Republicans see their party as politically self-interested is driven in large part by those in the party who donít support the tea party. Nearly three-quarters (72 percent) of these non-tea party supporters see the GOP looking out for its own interests, first and foremost.

Tea party supporters are less certain on this point, splitting 51 to 45 percent between seeing political motivations and whatís good for the country.

In other words, a large swath of the GOP sees the party waging political battles that are not in the interest of the nation but instead aimed at political goals.

Really???

How come Bush and Cheney never considered 'Old Europe' to be our allies??

After all, Germany and france criticized Bush's invasion of Iraq, after which, th eRepugnants renamed French Fries to Freedom Fries!!

Are you so stupid you do't remember how France was vilified by the Bush Admin??

""French see Bush as the ugly American
By Vivienne Walt, USA TODAY
PARIS ó In France's popular television satire, Les Guignols d'Info (The News Puppets), a Sylvester Stallone puppet struts on screen nightly, threatening to shoot 'em up against the Iraqis. French viewers clutching their sides in laughter understand who the show is lampooning: George W. Bush.

The disdain for Bush among many French people ó exacerbated by the U.S. administration's aggressive push for a war in Iraq ó is just one of several factors tearing the two allies apart. But it is the most visible. The view here and across parts of Europe is that the U.S. president's style and policies embody all that is brash, crass and impolitic about America. One reason the level of frustration may have reached a new high is many here feel there is little they or their leaders can do against America's overwhelming power.(Related item: Many Europeans oppose war in Iraq)

The shift in attitude is dramatic since Sept. 11, 2001, when French regularly stopped Americans in Paris to express their solidarity. France's Liberation newspaper published a poll 10 days later showing 73% of the French public believed their country should participate in any military action by U.S. forces in response to the attacks. On Sept. 12, 2001, the front page of France's largest newspaper Le Monde declared, "We are all Americans."

But they will be all French on Saturday, when thousands are expected to gather here as part of worldwide protests against a war in Iraq. A poll last week by the firm IFOP found that 77% of French adults oppose a war in Iraq, even if the U.N. Security Council gives its endorsement. And 81% said they didn't believe U.S. arguments that Saddam Hussein has been developing weapons of mass destruction in defiance of U.N. resolutions. Polls in Germany and several other European countries have shown similar opposition to the U.S. push to disarm Iraq by force.""
