Did it hurt? Was that painful? Well, good, say the politicians. That IS the point.
I'm so pissed I could spit. They broke my damned website in so many ways, it's a shambles!! Most of my site was designed and built around real time
or near real time data feeds. Hundreds upon hundreds of them...and it was supposed to go up in mid-Sept but for some hardware issues on my end...I
digress but to note one thing here.
What the hell was it costing for the US Census Bureau to have the same static pages showing today that it had showing Sept 30th? Is that some massive
expense to just NOT change every page to show a "Government Shutdown...so sorry!'? Nope... If it hurts, they smile and do more of it. Tell me what
we're seeing isn't proving that in a thousand little ways ....like getting a basic SS card to obtain a job.
Didn't know you were that involved in the blogsphere, Wrabbit.. and my chunka hurt goes with you on this induced frustration level. You and many of
us are getting a legitimately bigger axe to grind than we can lift the sharpening stone to, almost from forever.
What's literally killing me is the fact it costs so much more for them to restrict access to, and increase guarding of what they shut down; than just
leaving us and the 'non-essential' alone.
I personally am old enough to remember a childhood living somewhere including at least the well cultivated illusion of it being a free country. Popped
that pimple with some big pliers.
fast forward, and from today--
I was eligible and going to file for a retirement pension at 62: just about to arrive. Site shutdown and no agents for filing new claims (and we're
probably not sorry, slave BWAHAHAhaaaa).
Starve, freeze, AND rot. You gotta suppport it or you're a racist.
For this one, and if timing was everything-- my life's theme has been akin to graduating from high school the summer before the school district put
in an olympic sized pool, weight room and electric B-Ball court. True story, but I'm not Col. Stewart:
it's a wonderful lie.
This is shaping up to be America's Winter of Discontent, 100 years ater Russia's. Hope you get your site up despite the evil clowns. I have to give
up and maybe if lucky finish on a yellow.
ps: two years after the additions the school district restructured to that being earmarked as the Admin. Building.
Yes I can spell Politbureau. Love it or you're a terrorist.
