Today, October 7th is the first Monday of October 2013.
The American federal government has been in a PARTIAL shutdown for one week.
Now, I keep telling people the American government is only in a PARTIAL shutdown since many essential government agencies and services are still running or operating. Few or many people don’t care about that…which is sad but somewhat understandable. Still, a “not caring” public attitude suggests to me that some people either don’t know what essential services are available and/or they have no inclination to pressure their congressional representatives to get their collective heads out of their asses, resolve their differences NOW and get back to work for the American electorate! (sigh)
As further proof of my statement about the government being in a partial shutdown, I wish to inform all that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) an essential public service but more importantly, one of the three constitutional branches of U.S. government, begins its 2013-2014 session today. Yes, all nine Justices are back at work to listen, consider and decide cases that could affect each of us, as in…YOU and me!
Keep an eye on them! To follow SCOTUS cases and arguments, I highly recommend checking out SCOTUSBLOG (www.scotusblog.com). Bookmark it, follow the twitter feed and/or “like” the Facebook page. You’ll thank me later!
