Opinion | Letter: Shutdown is ‘terrible’

For we the people, this federal government “shutdown” is terrible, awful, painful and worse. Just look:

The American Battle Monuments are closed. They may crumble!

Congress is somehow closed (their staffers aren’t paid). Are you missing that?

Consumer Product Safety bureaucrats are not working! Your kids may be choking on something this very moment!

Department of Agriculture is closed! The farmers must be devastated as they can’t grow anything!

The Department of Commerce is closed. They won’t be able to take calls from the Chamber of Commerce!

The Department of Education is closed. What will our kids do for school/learning?

The Department of Energy is closed. Guess that means the power will go off at any moment!

The “essential” agencies (by law) are still open!

Of course when the swamp gets done grabbing face time on CNN everyone will be paid for not working. Just letting all you folks that worship the Federal Government know how much you are missing.
