Someone should tell Barack and Michelle having a private chef at taxpayers expense during the slowdown (it is NOT a shutdown) is wrong.  They could order pizza or BBQ to be delivered—maybe Michelle or Barack could cook dinner themselves (after all if the government is slowing down he should plenty of time, especially since he will only talk with terrorists in Iran or Russia’s Putin, not the GOP’ers in Washington)

The good news is that 94% of the EPA is closed—meaning jobs will be saved for a few days.  We can quantify the number of non essential employees—800,000 including ¾ of the White House staff (chefs were deemed essential)

NSA domestic programs. Government shutdown or not, the National Security Agency (NSA), with its $10.8 billion black ops annual budget, will continue to spy on every person in the United States who uses a computer or phone using programs such as PRISM and XKEYSCORE. By cracking the security of all major smartphones, including iPhone, Android, and Blackberry devices, NSA agents harvest such information as contacts, text messages, and location data. And then there are the NSA agents who will continue to use and abuse their surveillance powers for personal means, to spy on girlfriends, lovers and first dates.”

Nothing to worry about; govt. not really shutting down

By John Seiler, Calwatchdog,  10/1/13

Supposedly the federal government is “shutting down.” Not really. Some parts of the government, such as parks, are shutting down to scare people. But the essential parts of government continue to operate. So, don’t worry. Your lifestyle is safe. As civil rights activist John Whitehead writes:

Indeed, the one area not impacted in the least by a government shutdown will be the police/surveillance state and its various militarized agencies, spying programs and personnel. Take a look at the programs and policies that will not be affected by a government shutdown, and you’ll get a clearer sense of the government’s priorities – priorities which have, as I point out in my new book, A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, little to do with serving taxpayers and everything to do with maintaining power and control, while being sold to the public under the guise of national security.

Domestic surveillance. On any given day, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior. Police have been outfitted with a litany of surveillance gear, from license plate readers and cell phone tracking devices to biometric data recorders….

And then there are the NSA agents who will continue to use and abuse their surveillance powers for personal means, to spy on girlfriends, lovers and first dates.

So, today you can feel safe because the essential parts of government still are working for you. They are making sure that any dangerous thoughts you have are being recorded, so you can be corrected in the future. The government is making sure that the government still is in charge of our lives, so the government can keep protecting us and providing for us.
