Sorry if this is a dumb question, but why are all the national parks shut down just because the government won't go to work?
User avatar #50 to #31 - xXDeadpoolXx (10/05/2013) [-]
they're on a government payroll. basically anyone on the federal payroll had to scale down. West Point had to cancel its football games and its library isn't allowed to rent out books and is being student run for the time being.

but football games make money. it makes more sense to hold the game.

We also lose more money than we save by shutting-down the government. ******* logic.

staff: "it's a forest you monkey ****** !"
boss: "draw the blinds.2
staff: "you aint gettin this FOREST **** are you?"
boss: "soooooo,,,, no way we can lock up then?"
staff: "and you got to be the boss how?"
boss: "I did some things in a very uncomfortable place"
staff: "arse hole"
boss: "that's the one!"
User avatar #49 to #18 - Mahazama (10/05/2013) [-]
Well, no... by "closing" they mean denying entry wherever they can...
National Parks need to have the actual rangers policing it, ready to respond to wildlife attacks or make sure any campers aren't doing something retarded like smoking during the dry season...

There were hardly ever police in the area, especially around the WW2 memorial. Why did they close that down when the state protected it?

Because they can.
User avatar #41 to #18 - ilovemyguns (10/05/2013) [-]
Yes, the democrats spent money closing the parks that they pay no money to keep open to make a point.

One moment in my life that will always stick with me is when I saw this little old WWII vet in my local deli. I walked up to him and said "thank you for serving'. The biggest smile was on his face then he said to me "think of the ones that never came back".

This isnt right. Mess with the fed employees...Fine. Cut -everything- fine...Make things extremely hard for me and my family? Fine. But **** with the veterans? Thats out of line. You know they actually had to put EFFORT in erecting a fence...And for what? To keep people from looking at a memorial? Thats just not right.

> country's economy on the brink of collapsing
> government shuts down, cutting profit from a lot of different sources, raising population unhappiness, furloughing thousands of employees

I remember being taught from the 9th grade onward that the US is the strongest overall country of them all. I really doubt these are decisions taken in "the most powerful country in the world".

I'd be a little more tearful about this image if it weren't somewhat tainted.

Yeah, a bunch of veterans did go to the war memorial the other day. They moved the barriers and went inside. When I first heard I thought it was great.

Thing is, it was largely a PR stunt by ******* crazy Tea Party-er, Michelle Bachman, who showed up with the veterans and got pictures taken with many of them. Meanwhile it was her and her lunatic fringe which caused the shutdown in the first place.
#11 to #7 - anon (10/05/2013) [-]
Trying to pretend like blame doesn't lie equally on everyone in congress is just being biased, the political group you support had just as much to do with it as the tea party did.
User avatar #72 to #11 - HarvietheDinkle (10/05/2013) [-]
I'm a conservative-leaning independent, and I have to agree with mrmofo. Of cours, both sides are at fault, but it was mostly the Republicans' doing. Ultimately, this was caused by increasing partisanship among both parties, incited greatly by the Tea Party.

Well, in order to agree with someone, you'd typically have to share the same viewpoint as them. Then, you would, in most cases, verbally support what they are saying.

Sorry, you got a group of ideologues in government who oppose all opinions and forms of governing other than what they espouse ... that's not governing, that's narcissism.
User avatar #14 to #12 - cockassunited (10/05/2013) [-]
Sorry to tell you this but that's not unique to one party, in fact that's the essence of the party system, a collective individuals with a specific idea of how government should be run and seek to further the union using that ideology.
#16 to #14 - hailarty (10/05/2013) [-]
yes but this particular shutdown was caused by one party - republicans, in an attempt stop health reform plan. Which has failed since health reform gets funding from another budget and so it went through anyway.
User avatar #19 to #16 - cockassunited (10/05/2013) [-]
False, Democrats could've caved as easily as Republicans could have, it was as much responsibility for Democrats to pass a budget as it was Republicans, negotiations failed which means both parties failed, anyone putting the blame on just one party either doesn't understand the situation or is just stroking their respective parties ego.
User avatar #21 to #19 - mrmofo (10/05/2013) [-]
Why would the democrats want to cave on an issue they put to congress, had voted on and passed, by the same people who are now shutting down government for what seems no good reason.

The Republicans tried to repeal 'Obamacare' forty-six times, to no avail. It's become a white whale, and an embarrassment. It's not going to work, but the right wing fringe have to show their constituents that they won't stop fighting, because it's not about governing anymore, it's about theater. Unfortunately, the theatrics is all about playing with peoples' lives and government services.

Meanwhile, if you poll people what they think of 'Obamacare,' far more people are against it than when they're polled about what they think of the 'Affordable Care Act.' But it's the same damn bill lol. And they're so up in arms against it because they have to kill it before people see the benefits of public health care in action and grow to like it.
User avatar #44 to #21 - undeadwill (10/05/2013) [-]
Obamacare is the terrible. Anyone supporting it has no idea how it works.
#108 to #44 - hailarty (10/06/2013) [-]
it doesn't matter if it's terrible or not. USA is a democracy, and people voted for Obama TWICE, and his main task as a president is obamacare. That means majority of people want obama care. CONGRESS VOTED "YES" on it, it passed supreme court, and it won the election in USA. so it must be passed in Democratic country.
Also, I think that obama care is good, because up until now, the health care was horrible.
User avatar #109 to #108 - undeadwill (10/06/2013) [-]
Voters asked for it twice? How? By voting for Obama? You do realize that Obamacare isn't the reason allot of people elected him. It was party politics and skin color.

Prove that fact after watching this, CHAOS: Obamacare to Collapse American Society
Tell me what is good about it?

Because a majority supported it does not make it right.
User avatar #24 to #21 - cockassunited (10/05/2013) [-]
Except it wasn't by the same people, the democrats controlled the house at the time not the Republicans power has shifted, it was forced through the house without letting anyone read it, and the majority of Americans want no part of it.

Secondly the ONLY reason Obamacare hasn't been repealed is because the senate (democrat controlled) stonewalls it, Republicans are attempting to listen to their constituents if anything it's Democrats playing politics.

Again, the government is shut down because neither side can make a deal, that includes the Democrats.
User avatar #43 to #16 - undeadwill (10/05/2013) [-]
So wait if two parties refuse to compromise and neither is interested in it. WHY blame only one?
#107 to #43 - hailarty (10/06/2013) [-]
Budget must be passed by republicans and democrats. But because republicans don't want medical care they said that they won't pass the budget until health care will be canceled (but majority of USA voted for new healthcare, healthcare bill has passed the supreme court and was confirmed in the congress) therefore there is absolutely no reasons to cancel the healthcare. So basically republicans now are saying "we wont pass the budget, unless democrats will cancel a law which is 100% legal, legit and reflect the majorities opinion"... I don't see the reason why democrats are at fault there, do you?
User avatar #110 to #107 - undeadwill (10/06/2013) [-]
Lol "muh democracy" its constitutional republic don't confuse that.

They don't want a healthcare law that will cause the economy to collapse. It will not provide healthcare it only diverts costs.

Also we need to start cutting spending now. Even if we raised taxes on the rich to 88% and the upper middle class to 58% higher than even more socialistic and welfare states.

Don't blame one for doing the reasonable thing.

Healthcare "sucks" because of government meddling and licensing.
