The Fort Gordon commissary has been closed as part of the government shutdown.

The Defense Commissary Agency announced in a news release last week that all stateside commissaries would close in the event of a shutdown.

A Fort Gordon spokesman said Thursday that the Army post’s commissary stayed open Tuesday to reduce the perishables on hand before beginning a systematic closing at the end of the business day.

This makes a lot of

This makes a lot of sense!!

Most of the "furloughed" workers are in positions that should in no way be on the list.

CDC, EPA and DOE are not jobs that should be tossed aside.

Throw out the members of Congress, State Reps and 3/4 of the Presidential entourage. At this point, they are definitely not needed!!

The heck it did!

The idea of these low-life moral twits is to make Americans as miserable as possible during the shutdown in the hope that we will turn on the Republicans for standing their ground in the fight to protect us from the Obamination about to kill us all financially.

Kindly remember just who it was that rejected every single compromise offer to them in order to pass the budget. The last offer left every miserable piece of the ACA Obamination intact but would have had Congress and all their little buddies lose their own supplements to pay for their share of the cost. O hell no, they weren't going to suffer what the rest of us will, not while they have a seat in this laughable, miserable perversion of a government.

Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and above all, Hussein Obummer should suffer right along with the rest of us. Their income also should be forcibly redistributed to the indolent entitled so that they can live just as nicely as people who actually work for what they (used to) have.

Their day will come. They have done so much damage to so many people, and way too many people absolutely hate their guts for Karma not to nail them.

of temporary House Appropriation bills to exempt employees from furlough. Introduced ... House Bill #4134, to appropriate funds for Commisary employees. Then we can work on Class Six employees in House Bill #4135. Nice way to run a government Republicans.

Nice way to run a government, DIMocRats, or rather, not run it.

They won't compromise and target private American citizens for punishment when they don't get their way. Real nice.

Somehow, this nonsense charade and pretense of caring about people in need rings a little hollow about now.

Wait, I thought name-calling is what liberals did. Quit stealing our modus operandi.

Glad you like it, Fedex

It just fits so well that it begs to be used. But no need to worry: that small dig is a like a few drops of sweat flicked into an ocean of sewerage.
