Fox News

That's where your disappointment started from.

You're right on that one. Still hoping for that Blob re-remake sometime this decade, by the way.

Wasn't that Slither in 2006?

Wow, Arcade Fire's like some obscure disco group you'd see in the background of some bad movie from the early '80s.

Tuesday May 28, 2013 Krogers this afternoon and old people were everywhere, a bus from a home, I think, blocking aisles and stumbling along. Surely Iíll never get like that, will I?

Word of government shutdown cuts into late nite comic shows. For a second there, I thought it was a sketch.

How I wish the leadership in Washington understood this. Truer today than when Friedman gave this answer in 1979.

"Government shutdowns" are triggered automatically when House and Senate cannot agree on funding after current continuing resolutions run out.  All "non-essential" functions of government are suspended until funding is resumed, and national parks fall under that heading. 
  Without launching a huge debate, the Republican majority in the House fears that the Affordable Care Act will destroy huge numbers of jobs and also do more harm than good in terms of actually creating/destroying health care coverage - some 18 million Americans who now have coverage will gain it, but according to various estimates, a roughly equal number will lose the coverage they now have, and employers will face a nightmarish range of new regulations regarding their employees' coverage.  In short, the Act is a 2700 page monstrosity that was passed hastily using a number of very questionable legislative tactics, and it is simply not practical or beneficial in its current form.  At least, that's how the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives feel.   The Senate is refusing to even talk to House leadership, although the normal procedure during such an impasse is to refer the legislation to a Conference Committee where compromises can happen.

Accurate enough, but even if you hate Obamacare, the shutdown does nothing to stop it, so why take the political hit just for the sake of a meaningless protest? This just seems like terrible strategy by the Republicans. I guess they assume it will earn them brownie points with their base.

But the question is did a national park give someone a booboo and that person sweared vengeance?  Twirling

This whole thing seems like one big clusterf**k.

But really, there's only one person to blame:

I think that if the showdown was going to come, this was the time to do it - more than a year before the midterm elections.  If it goes over like a lead balloon, Congress can make amends, if it succeeds, they can take credit.

I still don't see why the parks & memorials were closed off.
If this were really about the shutdown, I'd think there wouldn't be anybody to put up the barricades.

This reminds me of something the soviets tried.

Netflix has got a cool new feature - when you type the name of a movie into their search engine, it tells you it's unavailable without you even having to hit enter and look at the results.

I think I have poltergeists in the house! My oldest son was home alone all day, he said he went to the store to get a drink and when he came home the inside of the patio door was shattered, and it appears as though the BB gun has moved. He doesn't know how it happened.   Lookingup

Where's Scooby Doo and the crew when I need them?! I have a mystery on my hands.
