    Let's be honest, if you had control over what got funded would you prefer that poor people starve or that some rich folks had the opportunity to go to a park?

    We already know your answer. Go hang out at Red State and stick your head in the "small government" sand over there.

      efficient use of limited "shutdown" resources to send staff to close an open installation?

      Likewise, to send park service personnel to close the Colonial Farm that is privately operated and funded.

      It is Partial Shutdown Kabuki.

        you know damn well you can't allow people to walk around unsupervised on government property.

        The first time someone trips, or otherwise gets injured there would be lawsuits.

        So what's more important?  Sightseers or keeping the SS checks flowing?  Hmm?

        Now - may I interest you in this recipe?

        Baked Bullshit

        1 lb GOP brain matter - pureed
        1 tbs Bachmann faux tears
        1 tbs Boehner spit
        1 cup shredded Limbaugh doctor shopping prescription pads

        Mix brain matter, spit and tears in a large bowl until blended well.  Pour into a casserole dish. Top with shredded prescriptions.

        Bake at 450 degrees until well done or until the stench becomes unbearable.  Serve piping hot to people you hate.
