Why was the post Commisary closed its a STORE that makes a PROFIT, so why close it down?

Why are National parks closed, they generate PROFIT every year!

Why is Harris Neck closed, it generates more money with donations than it cost to operate, there is no operation costs to speak of, you drive through there. No ranger, well he and his family live there, and they are still there, so why close it?


Why are government employees doing buiness as usual telling us why the shutdown is occuring, and we all know its because some spolied brats we elected didnt get their way so they throw a fit like children.

Why isnt the MEDIA asking these questions?

Sebe you are a smart guy. You are our MVB (Most Valuable Blogger), you know much about many and varied subjects. I try to read them all.

I just got one suggestion: Could you shorten 'em just a tad? By that I mean maybe consider adopting the People Magazine Rule of Editing. In other words, make 'em short enough yet long enough to be read during the time it takes to have a normal bowel movement.

Just consider it...

I don't know about sporty. I will try sending him a message.

My take on the important stuff: GO DAWGS, yawn...Braves lose in post-season again, Falcons continue extension of losing their fair-weather fans (moi)!

As far as Harris Neck is concerned it does not come under the National Parks but rather as a 'Wildlife Refuge' under the operations of the US Fish & Wildlife Service which is a separate bureau/office under the US Department of the Interior ; http://www.doi.gov/index.cfm

It should be noted that once again the future of Harris Neck is being decided in the courts...

A friend of mine is with the Parks Service in New Mexico. She has spent the past 25yrs of her career documenting and protecting a site from 'looters' and overgrazing. Yes, she'd love to get her paycheck but right now she's far more concerned about 'the site'. She went into work prepared to continue doing her job only to be told she would not be able to be armed to protect herself plus she no longer had arrest powers under the government shutdown. Rather than risk her life she has gone to visit her parents in hopes that the visit will be cut short. (I hope she doesn't hold her breath)

Yes people have 'jumped the fence' at many of the National Parks;

... and there is bound to be plenty more as this continues. We all have to look at the BIGGER picture though. 65% disapproval rating of both Houses and the latest NBC poll has 95% of people polled saying FIRE the entire lot on Capital Hill!
