    This is not democracy. We are being held hostage by domestic terrorists (Republican Extremists) whom the majority of Americans don't hold the same views. This is not what the United States of America should be. All these people do is try to instill their values from their naive and brainwashed constituents. The foreign terrorist want to hurt Americans. These domestic terrorists are doing them a favor. I am totally ashamed of these politicians.

    All non-essential government personnel need not report on Tuesday? PLEASE tell me this includes the entire republican so called representatives of the people of the United States of America. This is a national embarrassment and is totally unacceptable. And just in case any of the republicans believe they ARE essential, they can report with NO pay. What can they possibly be thinking? This is Government procedure 101 !!

    Where are the human interests stories on the hard working civil servants? It is completely immoral to negotiate on the backs of real people who work pay check to pay check. Keep the government running, then negotiate whatever the politicians want after that.
