    Chill out, nothing will happen if the Government is forced to have a BALANCED BUDJET!

    I haven't heard to many stories of the affect the gov shutdown has had on our industry but my oldest son is an apprentice airplane mechanic. The firm he works for and the FAA has signed off for him to take his exams and test for his licenses. He (I) have paid (months ago) reservations for the two week class, testing and hotel reservations in Tennessee. We live on the coast so it is not a short drive. He is supposed to be there this weekend to start classes. He glanced at the schools website last night and on the first page it states that due to the gov shutdown, testing will not take place. A call from the school would have been nice. Now he is just waiting to see if the gov opens back up and if so, do they have time to meet the testing requirements. This is not a cheap endeavor and quite frankly sucks. Try to advance your career and the gov says......not so fast!

    My customers sit around watching FOX news all day. They think Obama is the anti Christ. That the world is coming to end like in the book of Revelations. That Obama is going to give their SS checks to China. That Obama Care is going to put them on a Alien ship so they can get "probed". The others have lost money in the stock market. The last thing they care about is getting their grass cut:hammerhead::laugh:
    I wish I were kidding:rolleyes:

    What we have in Washington is a vacuum of leadership on all sides, but mainly in the Whitehouse. No one bothered to vet Obama in 2008, I guess the media was afraid of being called racist, and now we have him re-elected and he still doesn't have a clue of how to lead. What happened to his promises of bringing everyone together? We are the most divided I have ever seen, and who is the main culprit? Obama. The buck stops with him.
