Government Furlough... Lets hope foreign aid and Western Union money transfers also stop...
Due to a lapse in Federal funding, the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program has suspended most of its operations. While the USGS will continue to monitor and report on earthquake activity, the accuracy or timeliness of some earthquake information products, as well as the availability or functionality of some web pages, could be affected by our reduced level of operation.
Don't stop the foreign especially the $635,000 to Brazil to help Brazilian women quit smoking. They need help. Plus we must continue to send thousands of dollar of aid to Mexico to help them build 'park benches'. Mexicans need something to sit on during the afternoon siesta.
After all we can borrow the money from China to continue this aid.
