Letter: Government efficiency

Farm Forum

Has anyone noticed how efficient the government became after the government shutdown? In 10 hours after the shutdown, the national parks and monuments were all closed. Not only were they closed but they all had large preprinted signs at the gate telling all the visitors they were all closed.

When has the federal government ever done anything that quickly? It took three days before they reacted to our embassy being overrun in Libya. A 10-hour reaction may have saved four American lives.

Where are the priorities? Then they say Congress caused the shutdown. It looks like the people responsible for printing the signs maybe planned to shut the government down.
