Government shutdown will hit thousands locally
Barring a last-minute deal, more than 7,000 workers in Central Florida will be staying home today -- and maybe much longer -- due to the first shutdown of the federal government in 17 years.

Please - in every government shutdown in history the government workers have ALWAYS gotten paid for the time they miss. This is a free vacation at taxpayer expense - THAT is your government hard at work. Meaningless theatre. The less government is able to do the better it is for the few of us that actually work and pay taxes. I bet those free Obamaphones still ship out on time and the welfare checks will still arrive right on time. A government shutdown is nothing more than theatre - oh the zoo and national parks will be closed - what ever will we do? Certainly society will immediately break down without the zoo - oh the horror! Shut the government down as long as possible - all they do is spend money they don't have. Here's to a lengthy shutdown - cheers!
