Can they pass that appropriation in September? I've got lots of leaves then and sure could use the funds to help get rid of them all.
I just ordered chicken and an egg from Amazon. I'll let you know.

It's probably radioactive...ask for some superfund cash too.

I don't want to get too greedy. If they're radioactive, then someone can just hose them off into my drainage ditch.....

Buff and all other affected federal workers will be happy to know that your employer-in-chief will be sharing your pain by taking his family for a vacation in Williamsburg this weekend. So while you relax and enjoy some free time, he'll be doing the exact same thing...

Uh, I'd love to nail the guy for this...but the article clearly says the trip is likely to be cancelled if the shutdown occurs.

Don't worry, though...he lost my vote when he destroyed the manned space program.

Well, the good news is that I'm "essential" (who knew?). Of course, pay may be delayed...
