Not going to happen. “A government shutdown is a political game in which everyone loses,” he said, calling the House-passed bill one that “simply keeps the lights on in our government.”

No mid-month pay for retirees :)

Still the best decision I made in my 22 years.

I am not a retiree but I am a GS employee. We have already been talking about this and what might happened next week. Luckily I get my GI Bill payment next week so that will help. But it would mean a vacation for me for how long it lasts.

"F@ck You, Pay Me!" - Robert DeNiro, Goodfellas

That was Henry Hill (Ray Liotta).

You may be right, but I swear DeNiro said it when he
Went to collect from that guy who wore a hair piece
And had a commercial. I thought henry was holding him back.

No, remember they owed the guy who wore the hair piece money for the job they pulled off at the airport. He kept bugging DeNiro about the money, saying something like "I want my money, I want my money".
Henry Hill was telling a story about collecting, "Fuck you, Pay me".
It has been about a year since I've watched it. I need to see it again next weekend.

"If it became law, the Pay our Military Act, the bill, HR 3210, would remove some of the political backlash that would face lawmakers if they fail to pass an appropriations bill to keep the federal government running when the new fiscal year begins on Oct. 1. Keeping the military paid has been a big motivator in the tense spending negotiations."

I respect the fact that our lawmakers think that pissing off the mil is a bad idea, but this is a big puss move on their part. It's like now they think that they can shutdown the govt. and make it look like they are doing something, or that they are taking a stand. Sick of the whole lot of them.

Tommorow is my kids 11th b-day, I was sort of hoping for a day off.

Some caller on a talk radio show here in Baltimore is saying no retirement checks or VA payments are going out tomorrow.

He also explained how the Black Free Masons are the real power brokers behind the world banking system.

I'm a little afraid now, what if this guy is right?
