12:40 a.m. - Happy October! Happy Shutdown Day!
Newslink from the land of the free and the home of the dysfunctional*--

"The capital’s rival clans find themselves at an impasse, unable to agree on a measure that will allow the American state to carry out its most basic functions. While the factions have come close to such a shutdown before, opponents of President Barack Obama’s embattled regime now appear prepared to allow the government to be shuttered over opposition to a controversial plan intended to bring the nation’s health care system in line with international standards."

* Not, it must be admitted, the only land of the free or home of the dysfunctional. The dysfunctional make their homes everywhere, and the free... well, that's debatable.
Current Mood: sleepy

As one FB friend pointed out this morning, the world still turns. We do seem to have more than our share of intransigent nincompoops running the show, though. :(

Well based on what people in the neighborhood were saying yesterday, Congress has managed to unite Republicans and Democrats alike: everybody hates Congress!

I think the people in your neighborhood should rethink that false equivalence.

Okay. Shutting up now. Sorry.

Happy birthday, Hummingwolf!
I hope you don't mind me attaching this greeting to an unrelated entry!
May you have a very cool birthday!

(whose own birthday coincided with the first day's fallout brought on by latest farce)
