First: Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Times are not sponsored by the DoD. At times they can be "The National Enquirer" for the Military,
written from rumor and conjecture. Why, I bet this headline stood out in big bold letters, t o ensure you'd see it while waiting in line to buy your
smokes. They are a business after all.
Second, The Constitution States:
"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the
United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
In the absence of appropriations, exceptions would be allowed only when there is “some reasonable and articulable connection between the function to
be performed and the safety of human life or the protection of property.”
So yeah, don't let the supermarket tabloids fool ya!

Negative. Government civilians in non-essential jobs would be sent home. Active duty are exempt from cessation, as are most emergency and federal law
enforcement. Scare tactics is all this is. Even the original source, Rick Maze, who is the staff writer at the airforce/army/navy/marines times says
the memo that states this was never released.

California would have the 7th highest GDP in the world if thought of as a country (not including the US as a whole, if so, it would be 8th). I have a
feeling the US gov't would take a play from their book.
Edit: by "isnt' that the same thing" I meant, isn't it the same situation? Can't pay so what else are they supposed to do? Hand out blenders? I do
know that state and federal aren't the same thing.
