Shutdown affected us in ways we did not seeSubmitted by Kelldor on Fri, 10/18/2013 - 03:15
"CHICAGO (AP) — Our food was a little less safe, our workplaces a little more dangerous. The risk of getting sick was a bit higher, our kids' homework tougher to complete.
The federal government shutdown may have seemed like a frustrating squabble in far-off Washington, but it crept into our lives in small, subtle ways — from missed vegetable inspections to inaccessible federal websites.
The "feds" always are there in the background, setting the standards by which we live, providing funds to research cures for our kids' illnesses, watching over our food supply and work environment."
I admit that after the 1st few paragraphs I could hardly stomach to read further, and just skimmed it. This is the biggest steaming pile of statist feces I have seen spewed since the shut down began. This worship of .gov sickens me. EDIT: The only reason I'm sharing this article, is to point out that this is the type of thinking we have to contend with.
