The sports games to be played by the Air Force, Army, and Navy academy teams are now on hold or cancelled. This is beyond crazy!! GROUND AIR FORCE ONE- and TWO - and Three, etc.
Stop all presidential barnstorming. Ground all congressmen and women visiting foreign countries to 'fact find'. Forbid Nancy Pelosi from flying home this weekend on the government dole. Close down Camp David. Close all the military officers' clubs including plush Ft. Meyer VA.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Defense Department says it has temporarily suspended all sports competitions at the service academies as a result of the partial government shutdown.
The decision jeopardizes this weekend's football games - Air Force at Navy and Army at Boston College.
A Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren, says the suspension is being reviewed by Pentagon lawyers to determine whether funds used for these activities are congressionally appropriated funds.
The U.S. Naval Academy said in a statement that a decision will made Thursday on whether the Midshipmen will play Saturday.
The Navy-Howard soccer match scheduled for Tuesday night was called off and it's not known if the game will be made up.

SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE - So, the only reason you're upset about the government shutting down is because you won't be able to watch a football game???

No doubt the government does not have its priorities straight
